SAN FRANCISCO . , Sept. 27.-I Theodore Durrant has anything tangible upon which to base hb denial of the charge that le murdered anche Lament anll Minnie Will- IamB , his attorneys have failed to give sat- Ifactory evidence of the fact , After two days devoted to th ! testmony of the defense the trial wal adjournd at loon today un- ti next Tuesday. In the meantime , how- ever , the deenso has disclosed enough to 'allsfy the prosecution that Durrant's attorney - lorneys are groping In the dark In the hope that something may develop within the next ( few days to save the prisoner's life. The weakness oC the defense Is made more apparent - parent at this time on account oC the extravagant - travagant assertions that lurrant's attorneys I p have uniformly made since the trIal began. I When the lro'ecution was engaged In put- tng In Is ease flh1 the situation looked : darkest . for the young Sunday school super- Iltendont Attorney lenprey was accustomed to snap his fingers and remark that he had no fears for the future oC his client. ) "We will clear him In three minutes " said ' . . Deuprey , "and the Public will be at a lou to ' Understand how Durrant'R name was ever connected with the case. " The same line of extravagant claims was continued when Attorney - torney leuprey nude his opening spech for the dorense. "Not only will the prisoner tel you with hi ! own IIJs the simple story at his life on the day Banche Lament was murdered , " salll Dcuprey , "but Dr. Cheney will tel you that Durrant was at Cooper . . - Medical college at the very hour when the \ . murder oC Blanche I.amont Is salll to have tkol place. lesldes that we will prove to you that Durrant never tried to pawn Misi Lamont's rIng at Oppenheim's store. On the contrary we will brIng forward the young man who did try to pawn a ring at Oppen- LI helm's shnlar } to . the one worn by Miss La- I iliont. " CnUILED IN A DAY. ; In vIew _ oC these startling statements I ( I "as first believed that the defense mIght have a strong cain . In one day , however the case oC the defense crumbled and fell of Its own weight , and today Durrant's alb\ \ has not a leg upon which to stand. Dr. Cheney , who was expected to tel so much for the defense , \\"s as strong a wlnegs for toe prosecution as has taken the stand dur- . stant - ) Ing the trial Instead oC fulfilling Deuprey's statement and swearing that lurrant attended - tended lecture at Cooper Medical college on April 3. he saIl he hall no recollection oC seeing the young medIcal student there. Time denial dumbfounded time defense ; If further proof were needed of the belief that the defense has little to offer In reCuta- ton of the case put forward by the prosecu- ton , I was furnished today. Instead of plac- Ing witnesses on the stand ( to tesUCy to some material ' facts In connection with Durrant's _ acs alleged alibi , two gasnter were called t testy with regard to the sunburers In the gallery at Emanuel church. For two hours the crowd was bored and the jury madl tired \y a long series ot questions and answers . relative to the mlnute part of the eonstruc- I " ton oC sunhurners Not once durIng the en- tire session was the name oC Bqnche Lament mentioned , nor was lnythlng 111 to Indicate that I was not a suit to collect a plumber's bill , Instead of a murder trIal that was be- I Core thc court. The evIdent purpose oC the examination , however , was to show that thc repairing - i pairing oC the sun burers would neccsarly result In the escape oC a great deal of gas. II This testimony will be used to substantiate Durrant's statement that he was surerlng Cram partial asphyxiation when he came down from the church belfry trembling and flushed , and met Organist ICing In the audl- , torlum. A significant featmc oC the testimony of the two gasfters was the fact that each testified that ' 11 made an examlnaten oC the sunburn- ers In manuel church on September 21. The prosecution Interprets this to mean the de- tense had nothing upon which to base a case until the case oC time people was nearly com- 1leto. , Only when confronted hy the actual necessity oC opening Its case Is It believed that the defense made an attempt to secure . , witnesses to testify with regard to the con- l1ton of time sunburners . DUnHANT IS UNIOVED. The apparent hopelessness of his case. how- eyer Produced no change In the demeanor . of Durrant. Day aCer day he sits In .the court room beside his father and mother and listens to the evIdence against him without a sIgn oC emotion. This stoicism oC the prIsoner Is only surpassed hy that of his mother. Irs. Durrant seems to have no conception oC the gravIty of her son's posHlon. Attired In wav- Lag plumes anti a tailor made gown such as a lady might wear at a nmatlnee. she laughs and chats with her friends whlo the evidence that the prosecution believes wi hang her son Is being put In against hIm. To frequenters oC the court room. lrs. Durrant's conduct Is almost - most its unfathomable ap thnt at her soil . Durrant's IS Cather. however , looks careworn and gives evidence of tIm intense .mental strain through which ho must bo passhmmg. The prosecution during tIme presentation oC its evidence against Durrant was unabo : to present testimony tending to show that the accused was of Immoral character and hall viited Immoral resorts. When the time for rebuttal comes , however , It .Is time Intention to present all of that evidence. I Is ralme1 by the detectives that they hl1e suOcent : proof to offset everything that may be offered to prove a good character for the accused. The rpor that limo defense In tIme Durrant case would produce a witness who would tes- . try that she \ the aeculcd medical student enter the Emanu(1 Baptist church on the afternoon oC April 3 1 , between 4:30 : and I o'clocl , before whIch time Ilnche Lament Is BUpposC to have been murdered . has ben confirmed , but time few IJeoplo to whom this wines confided the story guarded her name scdulQusly.

Gilbert , the taxIdermIst , from whose memoranda they are taken :11 Gilbert pays 22i cents apiece for time skIns of the drowned dogs. lie Is free to reject the eklns oC the dogs he does not want But , aE ! r. Gilbert says , nil oC time skins are offered to him. The poundmaster's men would not throw a dead tog away , because that would be time same as throwIng away 22V cents.

The detectives further reported one dog dead In the pound on August 2t , which accounts for the extra dog In the column oC dogs .klnned.
