BANKER IS HEARD
Phil Mitchtl! Testified to Business
Dealings With Father
EXAMINATION NOT COMPLETE
Witness Considered Priest to be
Sound Mind When He Had Inter
view With Him in January.
The only witness examined yester
day afternoon in support of the pur
ported will of Thomas Mackin. was
Phil Mitchell of the State Bank of
Rock Island. At the adjournment of
court fcT the day cross examination of
Mr. Mitchell had not been completed,
but will be completed some time next
week, on Mr. Mitchell's return from
the Illinois State Bankers' convention
which will be held at Springfield, be
Mr. Mitchell stated that he was well
acquainted with the testator, having
known him for about 20 years. He
testified that during all that time Dean
Mackin was a patron of the bank of
which Mr. Mitchell was the head, and
that he had an account at the bank
and transacted his financial deals
through the; bank, though largely per
sonally with Mr. Mitchell himself. Mr.
Mitchell explained that he was ac
quainted with Dean Mackin in a per
sonal and social way as well, and that
he met the priest as often hs two or
three times a week when he was in the
city. He characterized Dean Mackin
as a fluent talker, and of a jovial
disposition, well posted on current top
ics, and faking a delight in discussing
them with his friends and associates.
Mr. Mitchell told of the visits of Fath
er Mackin to his property in the west,
and of his giving accounts of his fish
ing and hunting experiences while on
uw I'rlfNt at llomr.
Mr. Mitchell said that he did not re
member when he last saw Father
Mackin, but that cither Jan. 2, or 2S.
1901, he called at St. Joseph's rec
tory, about a month after the will had
In en made. The call was by spec ial
appointment, and was for the purpose
of adjusting an overdraft which the
priest had at the bank and to arrange
for his future needs in the way of
money. Mr. Mitchell stated that on
that occasion he had transacted some
very important business with Father
Mackin, involving the renewal of some
$15.ii(mi worth of notes which the priest
held against a local manufacturing
firm, adjusting the overdraft of about
$1.0(i( and providing for his im
mediate nted of ready money. At
that time Father Mackin said
that he was sick, but that he
expected soon to bo better, and that
Bishop Spalding of Peoria, afflicted in
much the same way, and himself, ex
pected to take a trip together to Eur
ope as soon as they were able to en
dure the journey. Mr. Mitchell said
that from his long association with
Ft her Mackin he believed him to be
of sound mind and capable of trans
acting ordinary business.
Wan 111 t Time.
Under the cross examination, con
ducted by Kollin Sturgeon, the wit
ness admitted that Father Mackin at
the time was pale, less robust than for
merly, that his face was white instead
of florid, and that he appeared weak in
body and so;newhat emaciated, but
that his mentality seemed to be strong,
his conversation as spirited and jovial
as usut! I. Mr. Mitchell said that he had
heard that Father Mackin was afllict
ed with a fatal malady, and had sought
the interview in order to adjust the
business necessary before the priest's
death. He admitted that it was per
haps a month before he secured the in
terview he sought .ami that he saw
Father Mackin at the first opportunity
that his-attendants would permit. H
said the transaction was brief, as he
had the figures all prepared, but that
Father Mackin verified them.
The cross examination will be con
tinued next week.
