from Um room. The defense held that
this confession was made while under
lite influence of threats, inducements
and hopes of reward held out by the one
in authority. The state brought on the
sheriff and county attorney who testi
fied Umt no threats or hos of reward
had been held out bv them. The county
attorney, moreover, told Um defendant's
father when he came to him with the de-
feialant that it was not necessary for

The real evidence which ultimately
carried the point which Um defendant .
counsel wished to make was Mrs. Force,
mother of the defendant. She was
brought on the stand and told her storv
while Uiose in the court room held their
breath and listened fur every word. She
told how James Force came home on the
morning after the killing and found her
in one room while Iter husband was in
an adjoining room. After talking to
her sou for a minute or two she went in
to the room where her husband was and
says to him: "James has shot Harvey
Russell." Mr. Force immediately
ordered Frank llughson, who was chop
ping wood in the yard, to get a team and
went into the rMim where his son was.
On entering the room he told his son
th.it lie must go to Harrison and tell the
county attorney nd sheriff alt about it
and ir he did so he would go free and if
not he would lie convicted. James had
replied th.it he did nut want to go until
he telegraphed Attorney Harrington and
hud talked to him as counsel. Mrs
Force i: reed with her sou ia this purlieu
lurand immediately Mr. Force jumped
ti the comer of llie room and pulled a
shot gun and pointed il at James saying
'James you lire my prisoner I have a
riu'htto arrest you and you must go to
Harrison ami tell all alxmt it" The
three came to Harrison and thev tele-
graplMd to Harrington lor his services
No one lieard this conversation except
Mr. and Mrs. Force ami James. It was
lirst told to Mr. Harrington a little over
a Week ag w hfii he was here.
This being all of the evidence on this
point Um attorneys submitted Uieirargu
ments U tlw court. The court sustained
the objection to Um evidence being
brought in u ml the state t case .lad re
ceived a blow from, which it w.is a very
hard thing to recover. They asked lor
hort counsel l see if it were possible t
llnd a shred of evidence or, which to
build 1'ieir case aoe.
At 7:30 p. in. the court convened anil
Ihe state called H. H. Ruswdl to llie
stand, Mr. Ruswll told of Several con
versations which uccured iwlween him
self and James Force and between Har
vey Russell and James Force. They
were relative to range trouble , about
tlwir cuttle, and Jmues hud talked of
shooting, using the expression, "there
would iw de,id (ajople down there," and
Uiat Force's catile should, continue to
run where Mr. Russell objected lo their
being. Miss Belle Russell, sister of the
deceased, awl Frank Russell, brother of
the deceased, were both brought on the
stand. They Jstifled that Harvey Rus
sell did not have a gun on Um morning
of the killing and was not in the habit of
carrying a gun of any kind.
With Um testimony of L. C. Wright.
one of the coroner's jury, Um work was
completed for the evening. His testi
monv was relative to the uppearance ot
tracks noticed at the scene of the killing
and the lay of the ground in that vicinity.
Thursday the time was taken up wilh
trying to introduce evidence of the con
fession, but it wan ruled oi.t and there
being no further evidence, shortly after
dinner the court instructed the jury to
bring in a verdict (hiding the prisoner
not guilty, which was done.

The dragon-fly is the natural enemy

Agriculture has discovered that the
English sparrow, among its other of-

merge from the water and come out

Extensive mining rights have been
