Ossenkop Murder Case Brings
any to City
The last witness In the big Ossen
"kop case yesterday afternoon when
the Journal went to press was Ed
Os8enkop. Immediately following
liim a short recess was held for
counsel to look up authorities touch
ing the objections of defendant to
Attorney Doyle's question as to wit
ness trouble. Judge Travis overruled
the objection. Witness stated he did
not have one or two fights. He had
one encounter. Mr. Gering moved
to strike out the answer as prejudi
cial to the defendant, lrrevelant, in
competent and immaterial. Over
ruled. Witness saw his brother
strike Byrnes on the face. Witness
knew J. J. Luther who lived about
three miles from him. Asked as to
.Luther calling him up about thresh
ing, he said he did. He denied abso
Jutely, however, having stated to
Mr. Luther that no one knew how
the accident happened or whether It
was an accident or not and also
stating tat he didn't know how it
happened but it looked as If some
one hit Byrnes.
Asked as to convesation with P
P. Luther near Byrnes' place, wit
ness denied having told him he was
coming from the hall and saw a team
shy, went over and saw a man lying
on the ground. It was Byrnes.
Witness also denied a conversation
between witness and Hobson in the
presence , of J. E. Brlnkworth In

Saw Byrnes' body on sidewalk after
the fight, looked at it and walked
off up the street. A question from
Mr. Doyle to the effect that Ossenkop
was on ByrneV body and yet Bhe
swore Byrnes' body never moved
brought out a vigorous objection
from Mr. Gering which was over
ruled. Mr. Doyle succeeding in dis
crediting the witness' testimony very
largely at the finish.
Will Ossenkop called. Brother of
defendant, 30 years old, lived near
Bethany. Farmer. In Eagle on

caused by the fall to the ground
which deceased received in the grap
ple between the two men. This the
defense sought to show by hypotheti
cal questions which the witness an
swered In the affirmative. The ques
tlons were illustrated by the use of
a skull In front of the Jury. At the
conclusion of Dr. Livingston's exam
ination in chief court adjourned
until nine o'clock this morning.
The jury is standing the strain of
the trial excellently and, when
brought in to the court room, they
looked fresh and ready to proceed.
The usual large crowd was in at
tendance when Judge Travis resumed
the case this morning. Another
large batch of witnesses came in on
the morning Missouri Pacific train,
most of them being character wit
nesses. These will be called in re
Dr. J. S. Livingston called for
cross-examination. Attorney Doyle
for the state propounded a question
relative to the facts of the Injuries of
deceased as developed at the post
mortem and asked his opinion as
to whether at the temporal could
have been caused by a blow on the
back of the head. The witness an
The examination of the witness
was very technical and he made an
excellent witness answering the in
tricate questions with decision and
clearness. The witness weakened
the defense by his testimony regard
ing the fracture at the temporal
which was of such a character that
witness did not believe it could have
been produced by a blow on the op
posite side or back of the head. He
later modified this statement and ex
plained it to the Jury.
On redirect examination the wit
ness testified he believed the prob
able cause of death to be the fall
from the walk
His belief was founded upon an
examination of the shoe purporting
to have been worn by the defend
ant which he believed to have been
too flexible to produce the injury
which caused death. The witness
did not believe a kick given with so
flexible a shoe upon a head which
would move would" produce such a
