The Lindsay case, on trial in dis
trict court before Judge Chapman,
took a somewhat unexpected turn yes
terday and a jury was secured early
after the opening of court. Forty-nino
jurors had been called to the box and
besides those excused for cause, the
defense had ten remaining challenges
and the state four. These were
waived by boih side?, and the jury was1
thereby accepted. The men chosen,
together with their occupations, are as
Geo. Meisinger, farmer.
J. M. Gardner, farmer.
Milton Wolfe, farmer.
J, W. Maguey, farmer.
Harry To id, farmer.
Jno. Yick, tneichant.
J no. i.rown, farmer.
Jno. Adams, banker.
II. E. Countryman, farmer.
Wru. Sokes, school teacher.
W. A. Hrown, farmer.
W. F. Hall, farmer.
The examination of witnesses was
commenced at the afternoon session
and at four o'clock the state had called
six witneses to the stand. At this
rate the cae can hardly go to the jury
for dual determination before Friday.

A Thuiiltt From the S-iIV.lil.
Those who witnessed the execution
of Harry Hill Friday could not but
a Jmire his deportment throughout tho
trying ordeal. From the moment that
that thoso within the enclosure where
the execution took place first saw him
appear thiough the jail -window, to
the last, he in ver weakened. II is was
not an air of stolid indifference of
stoical resignation to an unavoidable
fate; neither was it a marvelous exhi
bition oT disciplined neive power, for
the features of the condemned man
lacked tho hard, drawn, tense expres
sion that accompanies u great mental
and nervous strain. He wascalm and
resigued. Fear had not benumbed his
sensibilities nor deadened his let lings,
for he felt emotion. If you doubt it
ask those who felt the fervent clatopof
his hand or tho reverend fathers be
embraced and kissed as. he bade them
a last farewell. It wai not wonderful
nerve that buoytd him up through
those awful moments of fleeting life
and impending death, but a firm and
abiding faith that, through ttiemed
bun of the faith he espoused, he had
obtained fiom God forgiveness for his
sin which was denied him on earth,
and sustained and comforted by an
unfaltering trust in his eternal sol
vation, he faced death in a manner
that awakened a slumbering faith in
the conscience of many a innn who
witnessed the cene. To the priest
who, by the steady influence of his ie
ligion, could so soften the calloused
heart of a hardened criminal us to
bring about such a thorough repent
ance and establish such an exalted
faith, all respect is due. One must bow

The Llmlsay me.rdi r trial, com

court, after a day had been ppent in
seem ing a jury, is now all Out finished
and the prisoner's fate, barring an ex
tra long session by thejuiy, will haw
been made known by toworrow.
The state introduced its last witness
shortly before the noon hour, and the
defence opened its side of tLe contro
versy by putting Lindsay on the stand.
The prisoner's testimony w:js in effect
a complete denial of inU ntionally jab
bing the deceased Kobtius in the ab
domen w itti his elbow, and the bulk of
the testimony introduced by the de
fense was on t he line that the intent
was luckiu ; by reason cf the position
beinjit ikeji that Kohbiu.t really rushed
onto Lindsay '9 elbow and shoulder.
The audience was large and the
opinion prevails generally that, while
the defence has been weal;, the testi
mony introduced by the state ha not
been as slror-g as first anticipated, and
a Veld ct for manslaughter i ;
erally Iwdieved WW follow.
The intit.duction of the state's testi

been divorced from her. An extract
from ibe letter reads as follows: "He

A recent, act of Cougre.s.i provides that

to receive a pension after bis death.
The Omaha Mrs. Wallers, however,
held on to the papers and tok thorn
with her to St. I'aul.
If Mrs. Walters the first in divorced
from Walters, then Mrs. Walters the
second, whoever she is, can ooine in fcr
I he pension, provided she wns married
to Waiters before June, 1K9). If ftbe
was divorced then Mrs. Waltets the
third stands a show, and so Mi through
the string of wiveti.

surance thai bhe would tt-t a perion.
Some time before the commission of
the deed the Omaha Mrs. Walter h
claims that Walters gave her the dis
charge papers, together with the as
surance that she was in line for tho
pension. It U sup cted that Wallers
managtd to gather his many wives by
promising each one that she should get
the pension after his death. All that
hav been heard from up to date have
not expressed any great sorrow at
Walter's death, and each of them has
been making very pointed inquiries
ib nit the pension.
Although Walters swerved some
what from the conventional in the
number of his wives, he had an excel
lent war record. He had four honora
ble discharges from the army. He in
lifted in tho Sixteenth l'enns Ivania
infantry on April 2S, 1801, and was
discharged on July 27, following. He
