when Gen. O'Brien ' struck hii oxtiotuoly

would not entertain such an unreasonable
and foolish motion for the short , fleeting

s concerned , not a line , nor a word of
srltictsm or opinions h.ivo been uttered

The murder trial , before Jndgo Novlllo
n which the lifo of Thomas Bnllard la at
take , was resumed yesterday morning
with the usual crowd of interested opoo-
.ators on hand.
Chris Hartman , a man who had worked
with Ballard , moro or JOBD , was called to
ho stand as the first witness of the day.
Ir. Hartmnn'a testimony followed in
about the same line as that given by wit-
icsses for defense , Thursday , and was in-
ended to show that the murderer had of
ate years , by recsou of excessive drink ,
locomo Insane , and was not responsible
'or his act.
Dr. Spalding was recalled to the
witness stand for the purpose of proving
.ho . development of moral insanity in
Mlard as well as mental insanity. His
ettlmony however , was virtually a rope-
itlon of what ho testified to yoiterdsy.
'ho circumstance related by ono witness
yesterday of Ballard having at cno time ,

Hitting his head against barrels , boxes

morning the moral Insanity question.
Ohne. B. Borkntt , ono of the attorneys
or Ballard was called to the stand. Mr.
Jerkett had known the prisoner ever
Inca he came to Omaha , about seventeen
'oars ' ago. Ho had never known Ballard
o bo what ho considered a sober man ;
was always trying to get drunk ; witness
witness know Vorpoorton and so far as
ila knowledge extended the two men wore
n friendly terms ; Verponrton often csr-
iod money from the saloon and turned
t OTor to Ballard ; didn't think that Bal-
ard bad very many mental faculties loft.
0. E. Baldwin , ouo of tbo attorneys for
ho etato , was also examined ; ho had
; novm the murderer a lone ; tlmo , and
also know the murdered ; Mr. Baldwin
was attorney several years for Alex
) amen while he was alive , and haa been
ho legal adviaor of 11 H. Damon einco his
leath ; he had also been the attorney in
hroo or fonr cases for Ballard ; as to
Vorpoorton , he waa a strictly honest and
reliable man ; Tom Ballard was a good
man In his line of business , which waa
runner for hotels , and was never in. such
londltion that ho could not do business ;
3allard waa discharged from the St.
fames hotel on wltnesss' rocommenda-
loii , for the reason that they wanted to
urtail expenses ; as attorney for Mrs.
Damon , witnesa thought that Henry Ver-
poorton waa the best man to put in
charge of the hotel , oven over Smith ,
who waa then the lessee. They wore
compelled to discharge Homebody , and it
was decided to discharge Ballard.
At the conclusion of Mr , Baldwin's
oatlmony the conit adjourned until 2

Being cross-oxamlned the witness said
.bat . ho saw Ballard on Saturday btforo
ho murder , but ho seemed to bo straight
ening up then. "On Thursday , " eaid
.ho witness , "ho came and snapped a re
volver at mo three times , bat I thought
10 was fooling. "
The dofenco also called Ira Smith to
ho stand. Ho tattlGcd that on Tuesday
morning before the murder , Ballard
called him out of bed and eald , "I'm
Jrinklng , and am going to get drunk. "
Sunday morning , however , he acted na if
10 was over the oproe.
Mr. Joe Miller , the county jailor , was
; ho next witness. Ho testified ttmt when
jroaght to the jail after killing Verpoor-
: on , Ballard was under the influence of
Iquor , staggered around , and ho gave
ilm liquor to sober up on. Continued to
glvo htm liquor for ono week.
The cross examination brought out
nothing now of Intereat ,
Dr. Spauldlng waa recalled to make
Bomo little corrections , or rather to re-
atato some of hia previous toatlmony ,
wherein ho had remarked that the ap-

John F. Bllvena was called to toetify
ai to the condition of Ballard on Sunday ,
March 15tb , whether drunk or sober.
Witncta thought ho had boon drinking a
[ ttlo , but was not drunk.
Samuel Stevenson , who saw the shootIng -
Ing , thought that Ballard was sober ; ho
also felt satisfied that Ballard wai sensible
enough to know right from wrong.

the introduction of the invincible 7" . Wo feel under obligations to say that the cigar is all that has been
represented and we take pleasuro.in recommending the V to every smoker , Yours very truly ,

D. D , , who his traveled much both at home
and abroad , related the followlcg incident
concerning hia vitit to the church of the Holy
Sephulcher at Jerusalem. Slid he : "We ,
too , visited this place , claimed to be the de
pository of so many sacred relics , and after
being shown all tha others , finally cama to
'tho dust out of which Adr.ni was created , '
and which was left over after hia creation was
finished. I at once Raid to the exhibitor :
'Now I bollevo you , I have had some diffi
culty in crediting all you hava told me about
the identity of many other relics shown me ,
but In this case there can bo no doubt what
ever , This must have bosn left over after
Adam was created. But I sea there la a con
siderable quantity of this dust quito enough
out of which to form Kvo. Why waa she then
not created ? ' 'Sir , ' was the solemn reply of
our puidc , 'for a very good reason : eho was
not there to bo made. " '
