TLo Third Day of the Trial of John W ,
"THE CRANBERRY SAUCE CASE. "
Mrs. Emilia Moll Adheres to Her
Original Htatcinciit In tlie Face
of Kluld Cross Ktnmlnntloii
The Iituicr Cnsc.
Tlio beginning of tlio Lauor trial ycstcr-
< lny morning found u rntlior muagcr sit-
tendnncu In tliu lobby probably about
two hundred. Only a few Indies wcronot
iccsible in tlic audience. Lauur sat com
posedly by his counsul , listening rattier
bhnrply to the testimony of tlio dill'erunt
witnesses. It was exactly ten minutes to
10 o'clock when the judge called the
court to order and the jury was brought
in by the bailill' . All the jurymen looked
refreshed and ready for the long siege be
fore them. They bad evidently been
well treated so far.
Jlcnry Voss , the architect , was the llrst
witness examined and testilied to having
made a diagram of tiio house ; , showing
the connection of the room in
which the tragedy occurred with
the other apnartmonts. Ho bad
also drawn a diagram * showing
the position of the bud in the room , ami
the spot where Mrs. Lauer had fajlon
after she was shot. The bed , ho testilied ,
was exactly eighteen inches in height-
thai is , from the mattress to the lloor.
W. Henderson was the next witness
called. Ho failed to respond when his
name was called. "Your honor , " said
States Attorney Simcral. "I desire an at
tachment for tnls man.1'
The judge ordered the issuance of the
attachment. Henderson will be brought
into court , and unless ho can satisfacto
rily explain his absence , will bo summa
rily dealt with.
TIIK FATAL IIUI.I.E ? .
Dr. ( Jeorffo It. Ayres testilied to having
been called to make an autopsy on the
body of Mrs. Lauor. "I found , " ho said ,
"a bullet hole on the right side of her
nose , showing where the shot had taken
effect. On the back of the head , and to
the side of the car 1 found a lump , show
ing where the bullet had lodged. "
"Did you iintl any bruises on Mrs.
Lauer's body ? "
"Yes , the day after her death , 1 dis
covered a bruise about tlio si/.o of a live
cents piece on her elbow , and a scratch
on the thumb about half un inch long.
It looked as if it might have been made
by a .sharp instrument , such as a needle
or pin. "
"Describe tlio course of the bullet. "
"It passed through the nasal cavity ,
through trio base of the Hkull , passing
through the base of the larger brain and
bursting the bone on the outside. "
At the request of Mr. Thurston. Dr.
Ayrcs located on the distinguished head
oi Laucr'.s counsel the point of entrance
and exit of the bullet. "Jf Mrs. Lauer
had been standing tin when she was
shot , " the witness said in answering n ,
question of the lawyer , "tho pistol must
have been held by a person in a position
lower than she was Decanso the course
of the bullet must have been upward.
That is , if she were standing erect , her
head not being thrown back. "
"Were there any powder marks on her
"None that I could discover. "
"If a person were suddenly shot as she
was , standing up in an erect position ,
how would the body fall ? "
"Probably face forward. That is if the
center of gravity caused the body to sway
forward. The bruise might have been
caused bv her falling as siio did.--
TUB VICTIM'S MOTHEK.
Mrs. Goetschius , the mother of Salllo
Lauer , was called next. She was attired
in heavy mourning , which was put on at
the time of her daughter's tragic death.
When the mother approached the wit
ness stand she grew agitated. As she
look her seat , her emotion bccamo un
controllable and she relapsed into a fit of
She recited the circumstances of Laucr's
coming to the house to board and of his
"Did Lauer have any trouble with Sallie -
lie before her marriugo ? "
"Ho did. "
"Wlmtwnait ? "
"Some time before the marriage ho ac
cused her of bad things. 1 called him
out in the kitchen and said to him : 'Do
you think for a moment that she isn't a
virtuous woman ? ' Ho replied , 'No. '
Then 1 said to him , 'Why do you accuse
her of such things ? ' He hung his head
and could not look mo in the face. Ho
ACTED LIKE ANY SNEAK
would do. "
"What else did vou say to him ? "
" 1 told him this : 'Lauer , I would
rather close the coflin lid over my
daughter's dead body than pin the bridal
veil over her face , if she were to bo mar
ried to you. "
The mother then related what she know
of the subsequent separation of Jir. and
Airs. Luucr. She called on her daughter
after the separation and found her sick
in Mr. Lauor's house. She was crying.
Two weeks after , she went back to live
> vith her husband. "
"Did you have any conversation with
Lauer about the affair ? "
"Yes. I road the account in the BEE
of the way ho had treated Sallie , and I
was perfectly astonished. I couldn't be
lieve that any man would treat his wife
that way. I reproved Lauer and said to
him , 'You'll have that girl
DEAD IN HEU UKAVE
before two years have past.1"
Mrs. Goctsehins then related the details -
tails of the occasion on which Lvuor :
claimed to have shot at a burglar once
more. Lauer explained the shooting to
her in a very glib manner , but Mrs.
Lauer was silent and sadly reticent. She
cave no account of the allair whatever ,
' 'She looked so sad , " said the witness ,
that I remarked to her , 'Sallio. what
makes you look so bad. ' She said noth
ing , but John spoke up and sild hastily ,
'She hasn't got over the fright of the
burglar yet. ' Lauor remarked that ho
had shot too hlgn ami would shoot lower
next time , I remarked to him that I
thought it was strange that
ho was troubled with burglars.
BO much more than his neighbors , "
In reply to a question of General
Cowin's Mrs. Goetschius said that when
she spoke to Lauor he did not attempt to
deny the truth of the articles In the BEE.
He simply said ho would try to do bettor.
On cross-examination by Judge i'hurs-
ton , Mrs. Goot.schius certillcd to the testi
mony which she had given at the core
ner's inquest. In this testimony she
swore that Mrs. Lauor had told her the
ilay before her death that John was lov
ing and dutiful ; that she had forgiven
him and that their relations were then of
the most pleasant character.
Another feature of Mrs. Gnotschlus
testimony was the trouble that had oc
curred between Lauor and his wife , be
cause when the latter was visiting her
mother , a gentleman had helped her on
with her cloak. Mrs. G. testified to the
outburst of Jealousy which Lauer had
given way to.
The family physician. Dr. V. H.
Coffnian was placed on the stand. Ho
had boon called in to attend Mrs. Lauor
when she was lying sick at her uncle's
house , after the separating from her
husband. "I found her suH'oring con
siderable mental and some bodily pain.
She was much excited he testified. "
"Did you call on Mrs. Lauer again ? "
"Yrs , the next day. "
"What did she sny ? "
"Your honor , " Interposed Juilgo Thurs-
ton , " 1 object to this as Immaterial , ir
relevant and hearsay evidence. "
States AttoraoSiu rql defended the
question , ho had put , but Judge- Neville
overruled it. The prosecution was obliged
to take another tack.
In rsply to further questions , the doc
tor testified : "lleforo her marriage I
thought she was one of the healthiest
young women 1 over saw ; after mar
riage she was greatly reduced In ilesh and
subject to nervous troubles. "
"Did Lauer call on you after the sepa
ration ? "
"Yes ; ho came to mo and wanted to
know If he could call on his wife. I told
him that I thought ho ought
NOT TO (10 NKAII HHIt.
"Lauer admitted to mo that ho had an
uncontrollable temper , and that his ill-
trcat.nent of his wife nil are o from that.
He was sorry immediately afterward for
what ho had done. "
"Did you toll Mr. Lauer what his wife
said about a reconciliation ? "
"I did. "
"What was that ? "
"She told mo that she would rather go
back and live with him even if she
Tin AVOttl.l ) KILL HKll
than to bear the difgraeo of the separa
"What did Lauer say ? "
"Ho said nothing. "
Cro'-sexamincd by Mr. Savage the
doctor said that Lauer had expressed to
him a strong desire to have his wife back.
Mr. Lauer had also told him that she had
on various occasions exhibited a violent
Coroner Droxcl was next called. Ho
said that he was called about 2 o'clock
Saturday morning , November 21 , 1885 , to
come to John Laucr's ' house. "When I
reached there. " lie testilied , "I found the
dead body oi Mrs. Lauer lying by the
foot of the bed. Lauer was bending over
her , calling to her and speaking of her.
I found tier head lying in a pool of half
clotted blood , the tresses of her hair
being smeared badly. I took cloths and
water and washed them oil' . "
"How she "
"On her back , with her face turned to
one sido. One foot was drawn up a
triljo , I think. The body was covered , I
believe , with a shoot , and her head was
resting on her clothes , which had fallen
from the chair to the lloor. "
Hero the court took a recess for din
IN THE AFTKItNOON.
Coroner Drcxol resumed the stand yesterday -
terday afternoon. Ho testified that when
he went in the room the morning of the
tragedy ho found Lauer kneeling over
his w fo's body. "Lauor made n state
ment to mo about the way the allair oc
curred. " ho testified , "explaining that ho
mistook his wife for a burglar. He said
that he had onno before shot at a burglar
during the night and showed mn where
the bullet had lodged. Ho told mo that
ho could not have counted six from the
time lie woke up to the time he lired the
Mr. Droxcl then detailed the manner
in which ho washed oil' the face and head
of the dead body. "Tho corpse , " he said ,
"was warm when I got there , and life
could not have been extinct very long. "
Mrs. Hell , the washerwoman about
whose testimony so much has been said ,
was placed on the stand.
"On Monday , " she said , "i went up to
Lauor's house to wash. Mrs. Lauer that
day had cooked some cranberry sauce for
her husband. At 110911 ho came home and
walked into the dining room. While I
was in the kitchen I heard
Laticr say 'what kind of a mess
is that yon hayo cooked for
a man. Snb said 'my dear , the cran
berries came too late to bo cooked well. '
Then I heard her scream , and she came
running out into the kitchen with her
face nil covered with cranberry sauce.
She said John had
TIIUOWN THE DISH AT HEH.
I washed oft' her face and then went
homo. That's all I know about it. "
"Was the cranberry sauce hot ? "
"Yes , it must have been. It did not
have time to cool. "
Mrs. Ucll was tho.i taken hold of by
Judge Savage , who subjected her to a
In reply to his questions Mrs. Boll said
that she was married to her husband some
years ago in the Bluffs , and that he had
died afterwards. She related how she
had worked at different places , after her
husband's death , both in this city and
Mrs. Hell was then subjected to some
questioning about a house she kept on
Twelfth street a boarding house , she
"What kind of boarders did you
keep ? "
"Married or single ? "
"I don't know 1 never asked them. "
"Don't you know that they were in the
habit of receiving gentlemen callers ? "
"I don't know. 1 did not inquire. "
'Didn't you think that these women
were prostitutes ? "
ISeforo Mrs. Boll had time to answer
the question States Attorney Simoral
jumped to his feet and shouted "I object
to that question. ' This thing is being car
ried too far.
"I claim that I have a right to show
that this woman was keeping
n house of prostitution , " retorted Mr.
Judge Neville , however , overruled
this question and the examination pro
SHE STOOD THE OUDEAL.
Mrs. Boll was pretty closely questioned
on this branch of the subject , but pro
fessed to liavo been unaware of the fact
her "lady boarders" wore women of bad
character. She furthermore denied that
she had over paid a fine for keeping a
house of ill fame. Of course the defense
opened up this line of attack to prove that
Mrs. Boll was a woman of bad repute and
She was closely questioned about the
number of places at which she had
washed , and cited a long list of them.
"Isn't it true , " asked Judge Savage ,
"that you went ont washing as a sort of
pretense to got out of paying a tine as n
keeper of a house of prostitution ? "
"No , sir" ( emphatically ) .
"What did you go out washing for ? "
"To get money to pay oQ'n debt 1 owed
Dewey & Stone for furniture. "
"Didn't you testify before that you had
bought furniture from Bernstein ? "
"No , " retorted the witness sharply , " 1
wouldn't have the name of buying any
thing from that old Jowl"
"How did you happen to get to do
washing at Mr. Lauor's ? "
"I went and asked for it. "
"Did you ask to do washing in any
other house in that neighborhood ? "
"How did you happen to pick out
Lauor's house ? "
"I don't know. "
The woman was then pretty severely
questioned about the interior of Latter s
house , which she was asked to describe.
She was very chary about answering the
questions put to her and did not commit
herself to any noticeable mistakes. Of
course the defense tried to thus break
down her testimony by leading her Into
discrepancies , on the supposition that she
had never been in Laucr's house and had
never seen his wife. Mrs. Bell bore up
well under the ordeal and made no seri
ous blunders. Some of her answers were
amusing and rather nettled Judge Sav
age , who does not appreciate humor in n
witness. Ho was questioning her about
the meal which Mrs. Lauor had prepared
the day that her husband throw the cran
berry sauce at her. Mrs. Boll had
remarked that Mrs. Lauor had put every
thing on the table except the rice.
"He asked me to bring that in , " re
marked the witness.
"And you brought it ml" asked Judge
"What was the one int"
"It was in a dish. "
A low ' -laugh ran through the court
room , and oven John Lauer smiled
grimly. Judge Savage looked cross and
remarked : ' 'When ' the autllcnco gets
through laughing , I'll go on. "
DENIES THE CHAHOE.
Cross examined by Thurston "Do yon
know a woman named Mrs. Mary Quln-
Ian and a woman named Delia Blessing-
ton ? "
"State whether you did not say , on or
about March 20 , after the trial , to Mrs.
Quinism In the presence of Delia Blcsss-
iiigton , in substance , as follows : ' 1 got a
dollar the other day for swearing
falsely. " '
"No , sir , " emphatically responded the
witness. ' "You can't find no person that
will swear to such a thing. "
"Did you not say , " continued Judge
Thurston , "at or about the same time
and place , that you had got many a dollar
lar for swearing falsely about John
Lauer , and you wished you had never
done it ? "
' No , I never said anything of the
Mrs. Boll was then asked If she did
not , to a certain Mr. and Mrs. Williams ,
say that she had done something wrong
that she had testilied to something she
know nothing about. She replied :
" 1 never did. "
"At the same time and place did you
not say further in substance and cll'ect
that you hail sworn to a lie , that you had
never seen John Lauer until you had met
him nt the trial ? "
"No , sir ; I didn't. "
"Did you not further say nt tlio same
time and place in .substance and cll'ect
that you were paid to do it ? "
"Mo , sir ; 1 didn't. "
"Did not Mrs. Williams ask you in sub
stance and ell'ect how you could do a
thing like that ? "
"Sho never did. "
"And did you not answer her in sub
stance that you had done it , but was sorry
for it ? "
"No , sir. "
"That you never saw Lauor before the
trial and never knew his wife and never
washed for him. and if you wore going
out that eight to look for his house you
would not Know which way to go , and if
you had to find it or sleep out of doors
you would have to sleep out of doors ? "
"No , sir ; there was no such talk because
Mrs. Williams and I wore not speaking
together at all. "
"After you came back from the exami
nation of Lauer in the police court did
you not at the house of Mrs. Butler , in
the alloy back of where you lived and
late in the afternoon state to Mr. and
Mrs. Butler in substance and effect that
you did not know anything about
Lauer ? "
" 1 never did because I was never in the
"Did you not further say that you wore
sorry you had anything to do with it and
would not have known him had he come
into the door ? "
"I never did. because I was not in the
"Did you not the next morning say to
the same parties at their house that you
hail never seen Mr. Lauer ; that you
would not have known him if he had
como in the door , that you would not
have known whether it was ho or not and
that you had got no money only that a
person had promised you that if you
would swear to that you would never sut
ler for anything , and that ho would pay
you good , and that you were sorry that
you had anything to say about it al all ;
that you wore n uoor widow woman and
had a baby to take care of , and that was
the reason yon did it ? "
"No sir , I did not ; because I didn't
speak to them at all ; there never was
any such a talk and they never asked
John G. Lee , the father-in-law of John
A. McShano , who lived next to the house
occupied by John Lauer , testified to hav
ing been called early that morning by
Miss Minerva Lauor. who wanted him to
como to their house at once. There wore
no especially new points in his testi
Ho told how he had put on his clothes
and taking his boots in his hand , rushed
over to the Lauer house. " 1 met John
Lauer in the hall , " ho said , "and he was
moaning and crying. I asked him , 'Is
she dead ? ' I don't remember whether ho
told mo ho had shot her by mistake or
not. [ think ho did. "
"Was there any light in the room when
you got there ? "
"Yes , I could sec Miss Laucr's face
"Where did the light como from ? "
"I can't say. I was too much excited
at the time to notice. "
"How was the body lying ? "
"Flat on the back , with the right limb
drawn up a little. I pressed it down , so
it was perfectly Hat like the other. I felt
of the pit of the stomach , but found no
pulsation. The body was still warm. "
"What was Lauer doing ? "
"Part of the time ho was bending over
tlio body of his wife , moaning ami cry
ing , 'Oh , Lord ! ' 'Ob alHer and every
thing like that. Ho was very much ex
cited ? '
"What became of the pistol ? "
"Someone suggested that Lauer might
commit suicide with it. It was on a table
near the bed and 1 gave it to Matt
Gahlon , McShano's hired man , and told
him to put it away. "
Cross-examined , Mr. Leo testified that
he was very much excited at the time
and did not retain a very distinct recol
lection of the details of the event.
Mr. Matt Gahlon , McShano's hired
man , testified to having been called into
Lauer's house by Miss Minerva early on
the morning ot the shooting. Mr. Leo
gave Him the revolver and told him to put
Ft away , as
I.AUEK MIGHT COMMIT SUICIDE
with it. Lauor had remarked to him that
ho did not sco how Mrs. Lauer got up in
the night without awakening him. She
had never done it before. W hen witness
went into the sitting room he found con
siderable light reflected from the bed
room stove , though the fire scorned to
have dulled down somewhat.

It has been our custom cat the end of enoh winter season to place on sale , at I educed
prices , our remaining stock of incus' and youths' winter trousers. There arc good reasons
for doing so. We consider it advisable and to our interests to convert into cash , even at
a loss , such merchandise , the sale of which will soon be suspended for six months. Most
men wear out two pairs of trousers with one coat and vest ; the second pair seems an ex
tra expense , and a real bargain is very acceptable. AVc like to gratify such people and
win their good will. We still have on hand about 400 pairs of winter trousers , some odds
and ends , some broken lots , but most patterns are in complete assortment of sizes , and
marked down to prices which merely cover the cost of the cloth.
We also have concluded to close out our whole remaining stock of silk neckwear , which
has been selling for 25c , 50c , Y5c and § 1. There are about 140 dozen and we have marked
them down to lOc , 15c , 25cand 50 , respectively.
One of the secrets of our success during our many years in the clothing business has
been in the closing out of all seasonable goods towards the end of each season , regardless
