Ills wlfo only 11 few month.
One of Dr. Evans's claims to dlstlnc

It Is related thnt while tho party

passed through Llslcu.v, Eugcnlo, for
getting for a moment hur position, on
seeing a policeman 111 treating a man,
called outi "I am the empress, and I

Dr. Evans, however, explained tho
outcry by telling the policeman thai
his companion was a lunatic who wui
traveling wlti( hor physician and at
tendant. Othor lllco stories aro told of tho
trip, and Dr. Evans' Ingenuity must
haro been taxed to tho utmost to muko
the escape safe, but It Is inld that his J
roatly wit never once licscrtcd him,
however trying tho circumstances.
When Dr. Evans was In Amer
ica with his wife's body early this
fall ho announced that ho intended
to dovoto his fortune, estimated
between thirty nnd thirty-five million
dollars, to charitable and educational
Institutions In thnt country after ho
had provided for a few relatives. One
of his projects was to establish n

In passing r.ciitcncc the court said:
"Carr, you lire charged in tlio in
dictment, under four counts, with
murder lu the llrst degree. The fourth
and Inst one Is to tho effect that you
committed the murder of your little
child. You are charged with having
willfully, meditatively and deliber
ately committed this deed. To this
charge you hate pleaded. As you
made no defense, I felt It my duty to
appoint .such attorneys as tho gravity
of the iilIVusc demanded. I therefore
appointed Messrs. Allen and San
dusky, two of among tho most promi
nent lawyers in the state, men of the
highest character and standing. 1
felt implicit confidence that whatever
could be done for you In an honorable
the situation, refused to act upon your
pica of guilty until all evidence could
be lnid before It, so that It might bo
shown over and beyond your plea of
guilty that you were guilty beyond all
reasonable doubt Had the evidence
left any doubt on my mind upon that
fact, It was my purpose to set aside
your pica and give the case to a jury
of your countrymen. Hut your con
fessions, admissions and the evidence
shows you arc guilty beyond doubt.
"Hello was a little 3-year-old-gIrl
your own child. Her raothor was dead
ami you had another wlfo. You left
home with tho child in your arms in
the middle of the day Sunday, October
10. You were soen by four witnesses,
the fourth one testifying that ho saw
the child's face: its eyes wore open
and it was alive. oil stated also that
she was alive. As to whether it was
alive when you left homo was an lm-
portant question. If carried away dead,
In tho very nature of things other per
sons wero connected with the murder
and you alono not responsible.
"i'.ut the murderer lias been found
In him
who uow sits before me, tho
sol f-eotifessed murderer of Ills own 3-
ear-old child. Your lllinsy excuse
that the child was quarrelsome and
disagreeable to your wife's l) year-old
son cannot bo accepted by the court.
The motive must have been a more
powerful one, and If another may have
mid any nana m tuts crime, nnu you,
1 in your hours of confinement and
solitary meditation, find nothing to
I boftcn your heart aud disclose the
'truth then you are simply not hu-
, man. Men and women commit many
i crimes und for many motivos. You
I assign no tnotivu that is worthy of
consideration. If your confession and
.other statements are to bo believed,
I you stand a singular instance In tho
annals of crime; a confessed and con-
victed murderer without rcusonable
i motive for your crime. In the exe
cution of my stern duty under the
