rhe Daushter of the Fall River
(Mass.) Capitalist Arraigned at
New Hertford for the Murder of
Her Father and Step-Mother
- Daily Progress of the Trial.
. The trial of Lizzie Andrew Borden, who
B under indictment for the murder at Fall
River of her aged parents under circum
stances that have created a National sensa
tion, was begun, amid much excitement, at
New Bedford, Mans. Large numbers of
Strangers had been attracted by the event,
nd the hotel were filled to overflowing. The
fcourt house is an old fashioned, poorly
Ventilated building of the type of fifty year?
ago. Judge Blod?ett, the ablest member ot
the Supreme Bench, presides over the court.
District Attorney Moody leads the array of
Bounsel for the commonwealth, and ex
Governor Robinson that of the defense. At
11 o'clock Miss A. Borden, the prisoner,
came slowly into the room, preceded by
Deputy Sheriff Kirby, and was shown to her
Beat in the dock. She was attired in a be
coming costume of black brocaded stuff and
wore a pretty shade hat relieved by a
touch here and there of 'due. As she
passed the bar inclosure, Melvin O. Adams,
of counsel for the defense, stepped to the rail
and bowed to her. But Lizzie, while ac
knowledging it with a blight inclination of
the head, sat down, without raising her eyes
to his and passed on slowly to the dock.
Every seat in the room was occupied by tales
men and newspaper men, no outsiders being
admitted, and within the box enclosure were
a few of the prominent men of the county,
Who had been accorded seats by courtesy.
Court came in at 11:27. Rev. M. C. Julien.
of New Bedford, made a brief prayer, Miss
Borden standing. The clerk was then di
rected to proceed with the impaneling of the
jury. Miss Borden was asked to stand up
and told of her right to challenge. Chal
lenges on both sides were numerous. The
jury when it was chosen was formed of the
following men : George Potter, of Westport ;
William F. Dean, of Taunton ; John Wilbur,
of Somerset ; Fred. C. Wilbur, of Iiaynham ;
Lemuel K. Wilbur, of Easton ; William Wes
cott, of Seeconk ; A. 13. Hodge, of Taunton :
Augustus Swift, of New Bedford ; Frank C.
Cole, of Attleboro, John C. Finn, of Taunton ;
Churles I. Richards, of Taunton, and Allen
H. Wordell, of Dartmouth. They are a very
solid lot of citizens. Richards, the foreman,
is a rich land owner ; Swift is the manager
of iron works, and the rest are farmers and
master mechanics and such like. To get a
dozen of them 101 were called. Fifty-two
were excused for scruples of prejudices, six
teen were challenged by Miss Borden, and
fourteen by the commonwealth.
On the second day of the trial the court
room was crowded with spectators two
thirds of whom were women. Assistant Dis
trict Attorney Moody, of Essex County.
: opened the case for the prosecution. He
related the details of the finding of the
bodies of the old couple, and told of the
difference that had 'for years existed
between Miss Borden and her steomother.
Here the skulls were produced by Doctor
Uolan. The counsel said that the exact meas
urement of the blade of the brokea-haadled
2t 7
V 33$gZ it
hatchet was Z4 inches : the jn'-tnrriu
which fits into the death-wounds of An
drew J. Borden was just 3K inches wide.
Lizzie Borden fainted after Sir. jfoody had
declared that it would be proved that she
burned a dress three, days after the murder
of her father and stepmother and had pro
duced in court the hatchet with which it is
supposed the crimes wre committed. She
remain? unconscious for several minutes.
After District Attorney Moody had outlinM
Vie State's r&M the jury, accompanied by
counsel for both sides, visited Fall River to
examine the premises where the crime was
eoDimitied and all other places in the loltty
which were to be used as landmarks in the
trial of this case. The prisoner refused to
accompany the jury.
Details of the Crime.
The eldest victim of the Time was Andrew
J. Borden, a capitalist of Fall River, Mass.,
who was seventy years old. The other vic
tim was his second wife, stepmother to the
prisoner. She was considerably younger
than her husband, who married her when
Miss Lizzie was about four years old.
She was a large, fleshy woman. There
were two daughters. Lizzie and Emma.
Emma was out of town on the day of th
murder, which took place on August 4. 1892.
Emma called her stepmother Abbia." but
Lizzie did not call her anything to her face
or 3peak to her at all. She quarrelled with
her rive years ago because her stepmother
induced her father to clear a piece of prop
erty of debt and give it to his wife's sister.
Miss Lizzie was born in I860. She and her
sister had $5000 in cash or in mill shares or
in each form. This their father had given to
At the time of the murder all the members
of the family were ill. and this led to the
theory that they had all been poisoned. A
drug clerk was said to have sold prussic acid
to Miss Lizzie, but it was a case of mistaken
identity. No poison was found in the bodies
of the victims.
On the morning of the day of the murder
Mr. Borden had been on his business rounds
and had come back. Mrs. Borden was
dressing to go out. Bridget Sullivan was up
stairs washing windows. The old man went
to sleep on a lounge in the sitting room.
The wife continued dressing, if she was
not already dead, and Lizzie Borden, ac
cording tp her own story, went out to the
barn in the yard and stayed there thirty
minutas. She passed her father in going
out. and stopped to stroke his head. All this
was between half past ten o'clock and ten
minutes past eleven o'clock in the morning,
in a disagreeable side street, .i semi-tenement
neighborhood with CTnall shops in it.
It was in the heart of the- city, in its business
The wife had sent the servant to wash the
down stairs timing-room windows. At four
or Ave minutes before 11 the servant went up
to her room to lie down. She had been lying
there ten or fifteen minutes when Miss Lizzie
called to her from dovn stairs in a voice
suggesting alarm or terror. She is reported
to have seen Lizzie in the kitchen, who said
either "Father's dead ; go for doctor" or
"Father's hurt; go for the doctor." The
servant will clear up this confusion as to
what was said.
The servant, Bridget Sullivan, went and came
back and was sent out to get a Mrs. Russell.
When she returned again Dr. Bowen was
there and had been preceded by Mrs. Church
ill, a neighbor, whose windows looked close
upon the Borden house. These visitors saw
the father's body. Mrs. Churchill said some
one should notify Mrs. Borden, and Lizzie re
marked that she thought she heard her mother
come in. The neighbor and servant went up
and discovered the dead woman. Both vic
tims had been brutally chopped about the
head and face. Lizzie Borden was suspected
and placed under surveillance from the mo
ment the crime was discovered. Finally, the
District Attorney went before the Grand Jury
and declared that he had sufficient evidence
to convict her. So she was indicted, arrested,
and has been confined in jail ever since.
The Great Tragedian Passes Away
Peacefully in New York City.
Edwin Booth, the well-known actor, died
at the Players' Club, New York City, where
he has been ill for many weeks, at 1 :15
o'clock a few mornings ago. At Mr. Booth's
bedside when he died were Mr. and Mr3.
Grassman, his son-in-law and daughter, John
Henry Magonigle and Dr. St. Clair Smith.
The attack which was the beginning of
Mr. Booth's last sickness occurred on
Wednesday, April 19. He had gone to bed
at his usual time on the previous night and
apparently in his usual health. No one went
into his room till his usual time for ordering
breakfast the next morning, and then it was
found that he could not speak. He had had
a stroke of paralysis which finally caused his
Edwin Booth was incomparably the finest
tragic actor of our time, and most playgoers
will no doubt agree that they will never
look upon his like again. He combined the
spirit and intelligence of Forrest with the
grace and polish of Edwin Adams. Though
he came from a lou line of play actor3,
several of whom were distinguished, he was
accounted a much more finished player
than his father, the great Junius
Brutus Booth. .Edwin Booth was born in
Baltimore, Md., on November 13, 1833.
in which town he lived until he was
about seventeen years old. That he was born
to be a play actor was shown at an early day.
Edwin Booth, John Sleeper Clark, John E.
Owens, Theodore Hamilton. George Kunkle
and half a dozen others formed an amateur
dramatic club. While Edwin Booth and his
playmates were playing at acting, his father
Junius Brutus, was starring the country.
Edwin went on the stage in 1849. He was
then onlv sixteen vears old. In several
years thereafter he was his father's constant
companion. Together they visited the Pa
cific coast, whence they sailed to Aus
tralia. In ten years he played anything and
everything. No young actor ever had a bet
ter schooling. In 1860 he visited England,
Half a dozen years later he for the first time
tried his hand at managing. He took hold of
the Winter Garden Theater, New York City,
in which he played Hamlet for 100 nights.
Mr. Booth had little managerial timber in
his composition. He was too dreamy and
unpractical for such work. Still, in his
youth he was as gay as most actors.
In 1869 he opened Booth's Theatre. New York
City, managing it himself. It was by far
the most complete play house in the ooun
try. Still it was a failure. Mr. Booth
emerged from its management, some
say. with debts amounting to over
$500,000. He buckled down to act
ing, and in a few years had paid off every
penny he owed. His triumphant tour
through the South, which was followed bv
a journey to California, yielded him upward
of a quarter of a million of dollars. The
hard work this entailed affected his
health. When Lawrence Barrett became
his manager things went well with Mr. Booth.
His health improved. Ha furnished the
Players' Club and endowed it handsomely.
Since Mr. Booth retired from the stage in
Brooklyn, in April, 1891. he has lived at
the Players' CluD. It was noticed
that after the death of Mr. Barrett Mr.
Booth became more reserved and retiring
than ever. He eared little for society. He
had an almost matchless knowledge of
JihaJcespearo asd the bistory of the drama.
