The News : The Pederson-Greggerson
murder trial that has been on In this
city all week , Is now nearlng a close ,
It was expected that the case would
go to the jury today. At no time ur
until this case was called had there
generally been the slightest thought
of Us importance , and only during the
past two days has interest become
manifest This was caused by the
state introducing expert medical test !
many from Lincoln and this vicinity
as well as the defendant. The greatoi
part of yesterday was occupied b >
nearly all of the leading pbyslclam
and surgeons of Antelope county beinj
summoned as witnesses for the do
Dr. W. F. Conwell re-occupied the
witness stand yesterday morning. Or
cross-examination by the state he em
phatlcally maintained that Pedorsor
died from strangulation , as the condl
tlon of the lungs indicated such , and
the tightness of the cord one-fourtb
of an inch in size had Imbedded 11
around the neck from ear to ear. He
was shown an affidavit that he had
signed before a notary several months
ago In which he hud made the state
incut In regard to the bruises on the
head : "Thoro was ono on the left
tumple , about two Inches In area , and
a discoloration of the right eye. " On
direct examination Wednesday the
doctor stated that there wore no
bruises about the head excepting a
slight ono on the loft check bono. Do
ing confronted with this affidavit , ho
admitted that this had slipped his1
Dr. Paul Conwoll of Elgin was the
next witness , who stated as to the
findings at the autopsy In which ho as
sisted , and gave It as his opinion that
Pedersen could not have como to his
death otherwise than by strangulation.
On Cross-oxnmlnatlon his testimony
was not shaken In the least.
Salter Says Strangulation.
Testimony was given by Dr. Campbell -
boll of Tlldon , Dr. Fletcher of Orch
ard , Dr. Illldobrnnd of Clearwater , Dr.
P. II. Salter of Norfolk and Dr. L. C.
Johnson of this city , in answer to the
hypothetical question as to what in
tholr opinion caused the death of this
person. Each nnd every ono gave It
that denth was caused by strangula
tion. Dr. P. II. Salter possibly was
the strongest in his statements when
lie said that it was an utter Impossi
bility for the blood clots to cause
death In this person , but was abso
lutely certain that strangulation was
the direct cause.
Charles Button was recalled and
asked ono question , to which ho an
swered that Mr. Pedersen was SO
years of ago. It was also shown by
II. H. Hlco , clerk of the district court ,
nnd by the book of records of the in
sanity board of Antelope county , that
Mr. Pedersen was before this board
last year on a dipsomania charge.
Mrs. Groggerson , wlfo of the accus
ed , was placed on the stand late in the
afternoon. She stated that she had
flvo children. Her testimony was ob
tained for the purpose of determining
the time in question when her hus
band came homo on the day of the
supposed murder. Her direct nnd
cross-examination was completed in
loss than twenty minutes.
Defendant On Stand.
Leu Groggerson , the defendant , was
then placed on the witness stand , nnd
was there from 5 until G o'clock. He
gave his story in a clear , concise manner -
nor , going Into every detail from the
time ho loft his homo nnd upon the
arrival at the Pedersen house. Ho de
nied absolutely that ho struck the de
ceased with a beer bottle or kicked
him In the temple , and says that he
did not strike Pedersen at any time.
His story on direct examination In ap
pearances and form bore all the indi
cations of being straight and truthful.
Ho concluded the direct testimony
this morning , after which he was
cross-examined by Attorney Williams.
The state Is trying to prove that
Nels Pedersen came to his death by
the wounds inflicted on his head and
temple by Lexu Greggorson between
the hours of 9 and 10 o'clock on the
morning of August 12. One Injury on
the back of the head caused by a blow
from a beer bottle , nnd the other on
the loft temple by a kick from the
defendant while the deceased was on
Up until this time public sentiment
has been considerably divided , but
those who have been in attendance
continually from the start of the case ,
now seem to think that the defendant
will be acquitted.
