I did not pay any attention to anything but Mr. Lllile. Possibly la part I did. and In part I did not. so tettlfy at that time regarding the peraona. I should have testified at that t'me that Mra. Pue low was there. I now remember that ahe was there. The testimony before the cor oner's Jury was In a conversational way. "I noticed that Mr. Lillle's face was turned directly to the west. I never waa clear on that, but think I could have seen toth eyes; I should decl'ne to say pos itively, but I could see a part of the left side of bis face.

Judge Sornborger adjourned dis trict court here today, having disposed ot all tbe cases for trial. The attention of the court was taken up yesterday and this afternoon with the case of Bishop Bonacum against Rev. William Murphy. This case, was started last Sep tember and came up for hearing In Decem ber, at which time both parties asked for time to take the depositions of the church tribunal at Rome. Yesterday the attorney for Bishop Bonacum filed a motion to strike the defendsnt's answer from the files, but the motion wss only sustained In part. This morning the bishop asked for the ten days' time In which to reply, but the judge only allowed him until the after noon adjournment. He then asked that an other Judge be called to try the case, but thts also was refused. He then asked for a continuance until the next term of court to enable him to take tbe deposition of tbe papal delegate at Washington, and thla also was refused. The bishop then asked for a change ot venue, alleging that Judge Sorn borger was prejudiced and biased, belong ing to the same political party and waa a personal friend of Rev. Murphy. This mo tion was also denied, and the bishop then filed a motion to dismiss the action, but this motion was resisted by the defendant and the case was finally set for hearing at the April term. The bishop withdrew his motion to dis miss after there appeared to be a disposi tion to hold him for contempt of court. This la said to be the ninth action com menced by the bishop against Father Mur phy and In November, 1901, Judge Sorn borger Issued an Injunction restraining the bishop from beginning another action until the church courts hsd given a decision of the matter in controversy.

The Sunday observance bill created a flurry, Moody moving Indefinite postpone ment, whlcb failed. Boyland opposed It as a matter which ahould be left to every man's conscience to settle for hlmaeif, and It was Snally sent back to the Judiciary committee without action. The bouse was In a scrappy mood and atarted on the ad vers report of tbe'graln dockage bill, which Scobell moved to change to a favorable report. Price asked that tbe change be made to bring the bill up for consideration, and stated that the commit tee which considered It was composed .of three farmers and three gralnmen and di vided evenly In regard to the value of the bill. Potter, Elliott, Countryman, Craig and Allen opposed a change in the com mittee report, as they did not see any good In the bill .declaring that the farmer would be Injured Instead of benefited by It, but on vote the Scobell amendment carried by vote of 35 to SI.

The appropriation of 35.000 for an ex hibit at St. Louis passed by 77 to 7, after an attemr-t to amend to $25,000 failed. Tbe house passed the senate bill to au thorize the Stat Board ot Charltlea to dis pose of certain lands at the reform achool and purchase others. The principal new house bills, not senate duplicates, were to Ax salaries of registers of deeds and county auditors, and make terma of town officers three years.
