The I doctor was defended by Attorneys ; $ Bauby and Russell. His wife ac- 2 ' ine nrst witness was meaicsn rt,x- J aminer Crane. The drift of hU tes- timony was tha. he first saw Mrs Hale on October 21 in consultation with Drs Anderson and Cooley. What Mrs' Hale said on that occa- eion was ruled out. Five days later ,t the doctor was present at an opera- ,? tion upon the young woman to off- "4 set, if possible, the operation she is I': said to have undergone in Dr De- t ,ver'B office.

It. weighed about sev enty pounds and certain organs were removed and preserved by the hos pital pathologist. Coroner Makepeace, the next wit ness, testified substantially as fol lows: He saw the woman on Octo ber 26 and spoke to her as to her hopes of living. On that date she spoke to Dr Anderson and then she made her statement under oath. She did not die till November 14. She finlrl eho hnrl tin hnnpa nf rfifinverv. that she knew she was beyond human aid and that only a miracle of God would save her. She did not say this until after Dr Anderson had tcld her there was no chance for her. He said: "You've been a brave lit tle girl, but I-fear there is no hope for your recovery." She then told the coroner she did not expect to live and she -made h;r declaration, know ing that she was dying. The declara tion, or rather as much of it as is publishable follows: "1 have sworn to you to tell the truth. I really believe I am dying 1 have lost all hope of recovery ex i cept through a miracle of God. I i' am making this statement freely, without compulsion and in expecta tion oi aeaui. n ib my solemn state ment and it Is the truth. I am clear in my mind and know what I am saying, and it is true. My name is Josephine Hale and I live. at 58 Center street, Waterbury. I am twenty-four years of age. I went to the office of Dr Hugh DeVer at about 3 o'clock in the afternoon of October 14, 1907. I went alone. He told me he could get me out of it with perfect safety, that it would cost me $25 eash, that he would do it any time when I brought the money. We made an appointment for Thursday, but instead I went Wednesday afternoon, October 16, 1907. I was alone." (Here fol lows her description of the opera tion.) "I had several severe cramps and he told me there was no danger, that I could do my regular work or go to a dance. I paid him $25 and left. I was not in his office more than twenty minutes. I saw Dr DeVer for the first time when I first went to his office. He Is a big, pompous looking man with no whiskers. I told my husband before I went the first time and after I came back. MRS CHARLES HALE." Some time after taking the woman's alleged dying declaration j the coroner and Dr Anderson went to Dr DeVer's office, found some in struments there and took them away. II was Dr Cooley who sent the first information about the case to the coroner. When he got to the house Miss Fitzgerald, a nurse, and Drs Cooley and Anderson were there and he had Mrs Hale withdrawn from the room as they did not wish to discuss the details of the matter in her presence. Attorney Russell had the coroner admit that the alleged dying decla ration of Mrs Hale was written part ly In his office and partly in her apartments and was made np from the answer she made to his ques tions. The words used In the docu ment are not tier's but are substan tially so. After the declaration was drawn up the coroner administered to her the oath of telling the truth and she swore to it. Her answers were clear and lucid, he said. Mrs Hale told him how she found Dr De Ver when she first called there and he said that she told him he was dressed ill the uniform of a fraternal society. He was positive that she used the words "except through a miracle of God." She did not say that she knew she was dying until ' after she was so informed by Dr : Anderson, and even then she did not i express any wlah to see her children or her husband or where lo be buried, or why the should expect to die. or what should cause her lm-j pending; dissolution. I The coroner admitted that he was ( brief as possible In taking the woman's declaration because he knew an operation was Immediately necessary, yet. he proposed to get I complete and valid statement from j her. To the defence Dr Anderma stat- j el that at the time of the flr.it mo- ' sulfation at Mrs Hale's home her hns-1 fond and her mother were prevent i I ml the biwtwrhl broke dowa snd bad j to leare the mom.

At short calendar in the superior court to-day Judge Curtis allowed udgment to Robert A. Cairns for $2, 483.13 against Harry Reppen, alias Harry Rlppen. Law day, the first Monday in February. In the suit of Miles McNlff against the city to be restored to his position on the police force additional reason for appealing from the decision of the board of safety In dismissing him was filed and an order was issued for an answer in one week. The additional reasons are that the plaintiff had a vested right in the reserve fund or police pension fund at the time of the action of the board of safety and by said action was deprived of the bene fit of that fund. Judgment for $1,259 with interest was given M. J. Daly & Sons, incor porated, against the L. J. Coburn Land and Lumber companyy. A motion for alimony pending the trial or the divorce suit of Rachel At wood against stiles Atwood was denied. A bond of $ 50 was ordered in the suit of Angelo Morelll against the Noera Manufacturing company. I wo divorces were granted, one to Charles B. Loughrain from Margaret Lougnraln and one to Elizabeth Mar- tel from Magorique Martel. The first was allowed on the allegation of habitual intemperance. A number of policemen testified to having seen the defendant on the streets repeatedly in a state of intoxication and once or twice she was arrested. Her maiden name was Murphy. Desertion was the ground on which a decree was allow ed in the other case. Vnlversalist Services. Rev W. F.

Dr Crane was recalled to the stand and he produced two long shaped sleuder instruments with a sharp bend at the end. He said that after Dr DeVer was arrested he and the cor oner Lieutenant Dodds went to his of fice and searched the place and they found the instruments in evidence. He did not know their nse, and he never saw their like before. But there are thousands of instruments used ill the profession, he said, which he has never seen. A lot of other in struments be saw In Dr DeVer's of fice were not disturbed. ne also found a large bottle containing prob ably 1,000 pills, which he said, could be used for the purposes charged against the accused. Mrs DeVer made no objection to the office being search ed. She was quite civil, in fact. This evidence was objected to on the grounds that it did not tend to prove anything, but it was admitted. This closed the case for the state. It Is strange how widely good citi zens differ from each other on ques tions which one would think all would see from the same standpoint. To-day two merchants were talking about the money question, when one remarked that he didn't think it would amount to much, anyway, and expressed the hope that it would blow over without causing any suf fering. This didn't appeal very strongly to the other gentleman, and he pitched right into his neighbor without gloves, telling him that this is the kind of talk that is raising Cain with everybody. "What can you expect," he exclaimed, "when a man will mortgage his home and put the equity he had in it into an auto mobile? Isn't it a fact that you can't get anybody to occupy a house now unless it is equipped with all modern improvements? Isn't it so that the theaters have such a patron age it will soon be necessary to build another? Do you see anybody put ting by a dollar or willing to make the slightest sacrifice to provide for a dull season?" The man kept on iii this strain until he said so much one would think everybody in town was crazy, and that is about what he meant. He wanted people to save a little right along. This is all right, but this thing of saving is al most out of the question with work ing people. How is a man going to save? If he does not eat enough he will soon die, and If he neglects to clothe himself ha will not live long either. Talking about paying big money for rem, what else can a family do so long as there Is no other kind in the market. Any house built these times commands from $15 to $30 a month rent for each tenement. Whose fault Is this? Certainly the tenant didn't prepare the plans so that if the owner has to get a high figure in order to make it pay the blame rests on his own shoulders. and not upon tlie man who Comes along to rent it after it is ready for occupancy. Looking at it this way. and it is the proper way to view the matter, It is the landlord and not the tenant that should be called down for the high rent question. HARDING'S 72 and 74 So.
