It is most unfor tunate that this is so, but it is use less to blink ut th facts ar deny the situation as it is. The, duty of the justice is tuerrly to iile with the county clerk tan record of the testi mony for use before the grind jurf.

Iii much tb is e idciiti may "pan rut" on legal sifting. wb.it proiir.ds Connnt hfis for claiming there was Hi;y such h mount in Bris tol's hands, there is of cours1! no menus of knowing; but it it obiiously a phase ( f the case that should have a toorouijli investigation. A Greenfield despatch to the Boston (ilobe toiay sus Ponant was there yesterday hopeful of finding; the reon ey deposiled lit sumo bank and visited them all. tne eipress olHoe, and Bris tol s room, but without getting uny trace. Tnis tiespatih states Mr Co nulit to tie positive that 1."0 at least baa disappeared somehow. A ntw theory of tte case was sug t'ested by the medical testimony iu the fact that the bladder was for ml practieallv empty, and that is that instead of its being r case of cwht mare, iirist s had got up for evacua tion and was trying half asleep to climb over Cressey and got back into bed when the latter was aroused in alarm ut the ilea of burglars. Tte the ory has some inalifiestiotis in toe fact that the condition of the blander de pends soaiealiRt 00 circumstances, it the em mnt of liquid taken, t crspir ation. en. But it has at least rqiml plaueibilit' v-'ito the nightmare theory. The elements of doubt and nivstary in toe ease are r-artly io its nature ard emphasized by the testi atony at tro ioitiest. They are: (ll Three witnesses, who have r.o interest, in the case and olio nr tir. contiadicitd except by Cressey, tes tify positively that they saw a light in the rnoui during the progress of the sbnutir.ir. as Geo Karris and wife as sert, or withiu h second of its conclu sion, as Miss Kliza Grady says. Uiese) s statriiieiit is tnat tb' re was no light Dulil after tne shooting was all oone, and be bad helped the wound o.1 man liaeii to lied. It is pos sible, of course in the quickness with which the whole thing was done, covering ooly a few seconds of time, tbat tfiese sit e?sfs are mistaken: but t' ey state the distat.cea and tice in a w y that seems rensorubln and tbeif sre corroborsted in some degree by a bjurlij witness. Miss Mackay. who saw the light abet sue got up and reacned berwirdow s.-iiuehat liter. The erido'cn if these witneses if right is decisive ; for if there was a light during tne shooting acd strug gle, it could not possibly bare been an acciderit and it is evidence that contradicts Cressey squaiely. At least, in the absence of any other ipp siug evidence whatever except Cressey s, it ia not fair to jump to the conclusion tbat the three witness es were mistaken. A difficult point, however, in Mr and Mrs Harris' evidence is the statement that there was a light down stain in the other corner of tbe boose. This seems to be a contradiction of Mrs Starr's tes- timonyjaa sbe says she lighted none be fore she went up, and so far as ret ap pears there is no way of accounting for a light in that cart of tbe bouse until a ong time after it all. The only other neigfihnri who beard the shots, so far as yet learned, were Mr Loom is and Mr Willis at tbe Home for tbe Aged and Disabled. Tbe litter was at a point ntarer than any of tbe utber witness's, lie heard vaices but Co cords that lie coul J dis Hii wicdow was open bat he saw no light. Mr Loomis got up and siw none. It can thus be seen that their evidence may be verv im portunt, and it should be cirefullv siftted, with the men on tb stann. (21 Miss Mackay s testimony o distinctly bearing tbe exclamation Oh, my GoJ," three separate times is important ; for Cressey tells what ha and Bristol said, after the Ma shot and renognitiun, aod declares that there were "no other worus. Battled as be says he wis, it is easy to see how he might not rem em ber Ihem, if there were other wor ts, auil all too variations it tbe tssti mony nf tbe different peotle who heard words and sounds show wbat freaks human mcoiorv and under standing will plav over such sundea ii:.d excit ing events. Hut after allow ing for nil this, there is a variance tbat makes imperative the duty of further investigation. CU The variation pointed out Fri day in Cressey s statement, made t) Mr Wellman and others and that, be fore trie justice us tt wlietber oce or both wrists weie in tbe grasp of Bri-tol when Cressey was groused is of tte same kind cot surprisit g if be was misunderstood or if be aid not kanw certainly ia tho excitement, but sufficient with ail the rest to etforce the need of flintier inrjiry. (4 1 The directio" of tb bullet, with nut over an inch variation frun a strutrnt lice between the point when- ii enterej r.nd struck the back bone is a bard Ibing to extlain, es anyoce will see who will esj criinent in join ling to another's nhdonien. This fact was ,'ehencntly disputed Friday when the Krforo.cr reported the result of the autopsy, but it was Ciinlinni- I Ly tbe sworn eviuence. It is possible tbnt tne position of the two might have been eucb inn struggle that tbe bullet did take such iicuuse. It could rot if the two were stauoing or both l.iug down. Utfortunately the stenographer's minutes do not show a- y question closely r.slted rf Cressey about ths position of the two wben tbe fatal fotirtn sbot was liied. It dots show questirns and answers with regard to all the other shots, i.ut not this one. upon which this most iinpurt aLt point of all hicges. Chief Hall's statement not in court, but to the Reformer -is that Crcsssy says be was lyirg oil his back wben be fired it ami Bristol was partly over bin. as be thought, but he waa not quite sure. () Turn comes the difficulty of uedt-rstandieg how th i struggle could bate gone on, witnout Cressey finding before the t nei that it was it msn in night shirt and nt t a dressed burglar witii whom he was contending. Cres sey does say tnat tit oie point, after tin- third sbot aod before the fourt'i. supposedly from tbe minutes, that Bristol's leg touched bin). It must have been a bare leg. then, acd prob ably against a I 'are bp, tbougti tbat is not stated, and it ought, to have given warning ol tne real state ot si fairs. The only possible explanation is that Cressey was ti o much excite and fri-'utcued to fully sur.se the fact. (til It is strange indeed, and one of the innate difficulties of tbe case, tbat if Bristol was in a nightmare, on was getting back into bed half asleep, after urinati.in, that be should not have been aroused by the repeated pistol reports and the sbot tbat went through bis shoulder. As etateJ Fri day, tbe authorities on somnambulism are pretty well rgreei thnta sharp sbock to ar y of the senses and especially to to, will arouse tbe subject t j con sciousness. There are exceptions, as to all other rules, but they are veiy rare. istill mora likely would be hive been t't come to a realization, if iostetd tf beitg in a somnambulistic etato, be was getting hack into bed only balf asleep. It is bardly pcssible in either case tbat be should not have been aroused to wakefulness and if be was it is strange indeed tbat be should have con ti. tied the strogsle until after tbe fatal shot before Disk ing himself known. If he did it must have been because be was so seared and excited as not to really know wbat be was about. In tbat case Crrssiv's statements of what his oppocent was doing must have been pure imagination, as tbey may well nave been ia the dark aod tbe excite coent.
