Annis, who was shoi down by Captain Peter Jlalns, lust summer, the prosirutlon to-day pro duced a letter written by tho defend ant which opens the way' for Thorn ton Jlalns' lawyers to bring out tho Incidents In the Captain Mains' mari tal relation which preceded and brought about, the death of the pub lisher. The letter was written last June by the defendant to Julian Kip ley, priddent "f publication of which William K. Annis Annis was manager and in It the writer charac terized Annis as a "rascal" and "scoundrel" mid declared thut he had him on a criminal charge for betray ing Ills brother's wife. District Attorney Darrln offered this letter In evidence as preliminary to the testimony of Mr. Ripley concern ing a pcoond letter from the defend ant which the witness destroyed. Jus tice Crane would not permit Mr. Hip ley to testify concerning his recollec tion of the contents of this second let ter. "The Introduction of the first let ter" said Mr. Mclntyre tonight, "pave,s the way for us to show what events In CaptBln Jlalns' life with respect to Mrs. Claudia Mains that hrought about the estrangement with his wife and the shooting of Annis." Policeman Eugene Fallon furnished a bit of sensational testimony this af ternoon when he aald that during thi coroner's Inquest Thornton Mains turned to him and after bitterly char acterizing Annis, declared: "I would go down to hell to get him and kill him over again." District Attorney Darrln told Jus tice Crane Just before the adjourn ment of court to-day that he hoped to finish his caae either to-morrow or Saturday. i I.MiM I'rnio Power lo Keep Peace i ; Dutch Hall aal Operations I d'oine.
