' * The Oratory CorntnoncoB.
At the opening of the trial yesterday
.morning General Cowiu announced that all
the testimony ho wished to introduce would
to furnished by ono witness Jailor Miller.
Two tnoro letters were put in evidence on
the part of the defence.
The first letter road was written ut 831
Vermont street , Qulncy , III. , and roads as
follows : My Dear Harry I don't Know
what to maUo of your long silcnco. You
begged mo to come back hero and stay and
bo what 1 had always been to you. I-prom-
ised tli at 1 would. I went to Chicago to make
you marry mo , Harry , as you had promised
to , hut when I saw how much trouble you
had and how you were fixed , I felt sorry for
you and did as you wished mo to. You said ,
'Liliblo , go back , and bo the good , noble lit
tle woman you Imvcl always been , and got
along as best you can until I got thing * fixed
hero. I will write you every day and send
you some money Uvory weou:1. : Take Miss
Sharp to board and just as soon as I can nr-
rangu things I shall hare you hero. " You
said my baby would not DO bora without you
marrying mo , and I promised to give .YOU
tlmo. You promised all this Saturday night
Harry. How am I to believe you are going
to do us you said you would , when I have
boon homo five days and hare not hoard ono
word from you. Do ydU think 1 can trust
you when you treat mo thus ! No , Harry
King , 1 am going to soil my ring and tlion go
to Chicago , and If you wish mo to como back
hero to live , you must- marry mo at ouco.
Thou I shall bo satisfied to lira In a barn , if
I have to , and will trust you then , but this
way I can't. Send mo my ring at onco.
You will hear from me again soon. Always
your true wife , tannte.
Tbo next of these Setters was written to
Henry Woolworth King , the confidential
friend , and Is as follows :
"Ho Know I Would Starve. "
621 VEIIMOST STIIKKT , January 81 , 1887.
My Dcur Friend Yonr good letter of Sun
day was duly received. .1 was so glad to
hear from you. 1 have boon so heavy and
blue , but your good letter has given mo'now
courage. I have not heard from Harry yet ,
and it has mode the sick.- Henry , you say
my visit seemed srf queer to you. Not any
more -than it does to mo. I can hardly bo-
llovo what has happened. It all seams like a
dream to mo , and I think I would feel very
happy if it was all a dream. My poor Harry ,
I did not like him so well until now. Henry ,
lie did not mean to got so much in debt , and
God knows I have worked and saved and
dona my part to keep him from it , but all to
DO good. Ho , would not do as I wished him
to. He would have his own way , and BOO
wboro his own thoughtlessness ba * landed
him. I did not go to Chicago to make Harry
trouble. I went because he was so unkind
to me before ho left for home , nnd because
ho did not write mo. Ho promised to send
ine money by telegraph Monday , and
he did not have any and could
not get any hero , acd ho

but I did not have the courage to say any
thing to him. I know ho was doing his best
and could do no more. Then I saw you and
told you all because I could trust yon and
knew you would advlso mo for the best. I
did not think you would toll Mr. Adams.

Good-bye. Always your friend ,
Jailer Joe Mlllor waa placed on the stand
to testify that , on the day of the shooting ,
when Miss Biccblor was brought to the jail ,
her right baud was badly burned , evidently
by the powder Hashes of tbo revolver.
With this the defense rested , the defend
ant or no other witness having boon put upon
Uricf consultation was hold by the attor
neys of each aide as to the arguments.
Judge Graff ruled that ho would confine
the speeches to four , giving each side two.
It was then agreed that Assistant County Attorney
tornoy Etlgcrton should open for the state ,
and bo followed by Judge Baldwin on behalf -
half of the dofcnso. General Co win will
speak Monday morning aud after him County
Attorney Mahonoy. It was flrst agreed that
C. S. Montgomery would open the argu
ments , but after the surprising turn of
things , the failure to put the defendant on
the stand , ho concluded to say nothing and
gave way to Edgertou.
In a brlof , pointed Introductory delivered
to the attentive box , Mr. Edgorton said :
"Tho confidence displayed by General Cowin
1 ast night in his intimation to the court that ,
in all probability , the defense would offer no
testimony , imparted a horrible suspicion to
my mind. Just think of it , gentlemen , as a
basis of suspicion. The evidence shows that
a human being was shot down in the main
boll of a prominent hotel In this city. The
defendant was found with the smoking In
strument of destruction in her hand and an
admission on her lips that she had fired ttio
fatal shot. She has been brought before you
In the interest of Justice. Deliberation and
malice have boon proved. Yet , without ono
word In explanation or mitigation , counsel
for the defense calmly submit Id at they have
no evidence to offer.
"This distrust I have referred to was that
everything was all right In the minds of the
defense or they would not have dared dis
cuss the probability of going to you without
some explanation. 13ut second thought dis
pelled the suspicion , for I knew that thn car
rying out of u farce in this court of Justice
implied the participation of twelve jurymen.
I will not believe without the force of abso
lute contradiction that- people have so
little regard for law as to pass
this ' murder by without visiting Just
r'otribrutlon on the perpetrator. Gentlemen ,
you will respect the sanctity of the oath you
have taken. You have called upon the Crea
tor of the uulvorso to assist you In the dls-
charge of your duty and you must remember
that Ho will expect to meet no hindrance
from you in tbo performance of His task. It
is an unpleasant duty that is imposed on you
and on the state , but wo must not shrink
from it. "
The sneaker thought It a matter for com
mendation that tbo Introduction of tbo evidence -
donco bad been conducted with such fairness
as to call for the saying of but ono exception
to the defendant. Ho urged that tbo absence
of the older King was ample proof of a da-
sire to bury his grief and that it was com
mendable jn a father to use all his resources
to have the law enforced with regard to the
death of hii son.
Kef utitij * the common law marriage , Mr ,
Edgurton went over the correspondence
leading to the agreement of separation and
release and the circumstances surrounding ,
as the ovldcnco pictured ibcui. The forcible
Inferences drawn by Mr. Edgorton from the
release against a common- law marriage ,
which , ho said , called for

attorneys la her tottering walk to a back
The lungs of the spectators had barely
reached a normal working condition when
Mr. Cowin stepped into the court room and
asked the court if it could ho arranged that
his clteat might remain In the small room to
which sno had retired , explaining that the
open door would conduct the proceedings to
his client. However , County Attorney Mahoney -
honey thought it best to have the defendant
in the presence of the Jury and she was led
hack to her chair.
Mr. Mahoney insisted that the evidence
warranted the conclusion that the resump
tions of criminal Intimacy were always in
stigated by the defendant ; that the dead
mau Harry had confessed to his father and
in pursuance of his promise to reform had.
como to Omaha.
The fact that , in ono of her letters , Miss
Blechlor said she , too , would bo forced to
employ a lawyer , was dwelt upon very earn
estly by the speaker as conclusive that the
little woman meant business , and that her
only object in keeping up the struggle was
based on a craving desire for tnoro monoy.
And she did secure the services of ono of tlio
very best criminal lawyers in Chicago. Ho
advised her , ns the Jury has been well in
formed , to accept the terms of settlement
offered , give up the young man and go her
way. in'fact , ho drew In his own ofllco the
article to which she attached her
imtno , releasing all claims ou Harry
King , and receiving in consid
eration , therefore , the sum of 51,500 nnd tbo
clean liquidation of all debts. The letters
and agreements were all road to the Jury.
The tracody enacted Saturday morning ,
November 17,1688 , the wild Journey made by
Llbblo from Chicago to see Harry , and hav
ing an understanding with him , tholr inter
view witli him in the hotel parlor , and all the
subsequent , exciting , sensational scenes ,
wcro graphically pictured by the lawyer and
attentively listened to by the audience. The
theory advanced as the probable intention of
the woman coming hero at the tlmo was to
Extort More Money
and expose King to his friends in Omabn.
I3ut the program mo failed to work as mapped
"You are told , gentlemen of the Jury , that
King took her by tno throat and. in a fit of
anger said , 'Damn you , I could silence that
tongue of yours forever and end this whole
business. ' Then a pistol shot was hoard and
the next mlnuto Harry King fell u dead man
on the landing of tbo stairway. "
Mr. Bdgerton argued that ttio question of
Insanity could not be taken into con
sideration. That dodge worked years
ago but , in this ( day of rapid advancmont ,
electricity utid "team , the people , as well as
the courts , have become convinced that the
theory is carried to extremes.
The fut fairy wtth gorgeous bangs , chewed
nor gum vigorously and a tall , languid
beauty , in the clerk's box , found were enter
tainment reading tno ' 'Quick or the Dead , "
than listening to the speaker.
Judge Baldwin rested bis ponderous brow
against the table while the prisoner sat with
eyes closed dreaming the struggle of her
"Is It any wonder , " Bald Mr. Edgorton ,
' . 'that , after exclaiming , 'My God , 1 huvo
killed my husband1 after seeing him
fall a corpse at her feet ,
and the horrors of the tragedy pictured in
her mind ; is It any wonder , she is not a rav
in ) ; maniac to-day ? Is there any question
that , If she wcro insane , evidences of that
unfortunate aflliction would bo depleted in
her face and uctlau hero. "
The speaker clJsod by referring to the
conduct of the prosecution in this trial , and
expressions of pity for the prisoner , but
paid her tbo compliment of having as her
defenders two of the best criminal lawors in
'My friend Judge Baldwin will not bo him
self if no fails to make the tears ilow.but 1 ask
you not to forgot the sorrows of those who
have boon grief stricken at the loss of a son
the ogod father ana mother , tbo latter of
whom wo have been told , almost on hearing
the terrible fate or her dear Harry , lost her
reason , "
The court then took a recess until 3 o'clook.
Mr. Kdgcrton'a pathos had such an effect
on the prisoner that for fully ten minutes
after Sheriff Cobnrn wont to load her out she
sat as frigid M a utatuo and could
not bo induced either to move or speak.
Once or twice the muscles of her face
twitched convulsively , showing that she was
struggling to keep from going through another -
other sloifo of byotorics. When the sheriff
finally started out with her , and as they
reached the door , she gave a few moans and
throw her arms about wildly , but soon re
covered and walked on to the Jail.
Judge Baldwin in Ills Defense of Miss
Before court convened this afternoon , Mr.
Baldwin wont back into the private room ,
mot Judge GrofT , and extending his hand
heavenward , exclaimed !
'Remember , Judge , that the eye of God is
on you in this case. "
"All right , " replied his honor ; "but don't
you forget , Mr. Baldwin , that the eye of the
court is on you. "
It was the Judge's opening and as soon as
court convened , ho proceeded on behalf of
the defendant with a short Introductory
with reference to the angry sea , tempest-
tossed ship , tbo never-falling compass , and
the all-powerful laws of Godso fixed and un-
oxpllcablo as to battle the combined intellect
of titis world over stuco its beginning.
"What nro wo doing nero to-day ? There is
on trial for the highest crirao a woman.
Neither she nor any of bnr sex has had
aught to do with the law , or its administra
tion ; nor is there ono of her sex in the
Jury box to try her. She is nt the
mercy of tlioso who cannot understand her
love or make up. "
Mr. Baldwin took occasion to congratulate
the court us a gentleman who , in his Inmost
heart , desires to do what is
right , aud also the prosecution for
having conducted Itself through
the trial In nn honorable manner. "Nover ,
in my experience as u lawyer , have I occu
pied the position I do to-day. Not for this
noman nlono but for ttio great prlnclpa In
volved do I interest myself BO deeply in
this case. On the top of this torn-
plo stands the figure of a woman
representing Justice. Wbv is it that , in
stead of the flguro of noble woman , some
great Judge is not placed there ] "
All ho asked of the Jury was to do rlcht ,
and ho felt satisfied they would speak the
ono word which would give his suffering
little client tbo right once again to breathe
the mi re air of hoavon.
"But , I want to say now , if this woman Is
guilty and must bo punished , it is certainly
murder In the first degree' There can
Neither he MniiHluiiKlitcr
nor murder in the second degree. To ho
the first , the person must bo capable
of premeditation and deliberation. That
Harry King lived and died on tha 17th of
NoVcmber last I shall not attempt to deny , "
and the speaker also udmlttca that King's
death was occasioned by a gun in the hands
of the prisoner. Hoj uskod the Jury to
mentally travel with.him , back through
a few years of the llttlo 'woman's life. Ho
invited them to Imagliio the young wlfo ,
with her head plllowiid'on the breast of a
strong , proud husband ) the bright future
then opening to her , tbjj happy thought of
becoming a happy mother , when
suddenly , through tlio shocking fright
of a horrible > 'dream , her soul
is plunged into darkn'eed , her brain is left in
a whirl aud the monster with numerous
horns enters her bom to drive out peacefulness -
ness , and break up tncso very happy rela
On the proof submitted by the state , Judge
Baldwin said ho was , jvllling to urpuo and
submit tho' case. Hb * Xoo went over the
scenes of the tragedy ; throwing in , of course ,
a few extra touches of eentlmentality. It
was perfectly natural that she should want
a room next to King's and surprise him. But
the boll boy said to her his wife is with him.
Wildly nho exclaimed , "Why , I am his
wife I" Where is the woman who under
like circumstances would not nave screamed
and raved and wanted t6 go tearing into that
roooml This Harry King , who the prosecu
tion claims was a reformed man , was' there
in an improper manner when bis wife came
to see him. Ho finally came out
and met her , and from the
lips of witnesses , testified to by ono
and endorsed by the other , tnat daring their
interview he talked angrily , anil wo have it
from the testimony Introduced by the state
that , wullo ho had her by the throat and
was threatening to silence her tongue for
ever , the shot that killed him wan fired.
There is not a doubt that she shot him , but
where ! The ball entered in the back and
ranged downward. Therefore , if fired from
that pistol , it must hare been hold above him ,
and that it was flrcd near the elevator i * a
fact proven as surely as anything. The hand
that held the revolver was burned. ' They
must have had a struggle , because to grap
ple her throat he must have stooped , thrown
up her arm and In some way the weapon
wns discharged. He ran , of
course , and fell down the stairs.
She ran after him , in that
dazed condition described by witnesses , not
knowing what she was doing. Afterwards
she told her story , and "if you doubt the
truthfulness of that story , gentlemen of the
Jury , I am very much mistaken. "
The speaker thought that could Harry
ICiup's real thoughts have been known on
that fatal morning , tnero is no doubt that ho
would then have willingly taken the advice
of this woman to rely on tils own resources ,
go with her and live a happy life. Ho had
said to her long before : " 1 want to marry
"Harry , do yon moan itj" she asked.
Ho said : "I do. I am the son of a
millionaire , but , Ltbbio , wo will geoff
off down into Missouri and and sign a con
tract more nlndlng and sacred than the ser
mon of any minister or priest. "
They could not live in Chicago , and went
to Quincy , where , ns lias been fully shown ,
they had a happy home , until the murder in
terfered and broke it up. True , they were
poor there , in debt nnd experienced adversi
ties , but she clung to him , and wo have It
from lips ou that stand that she was willing- ,
if she could have him , to do anything and
live in a barh if necessary.
Do you think she would bo willing to
sacrifice everything and starve unless she
was his lawful wlfoj The speaker who pro
ceeded mo referred to the mysterious Henry
Woolworth King. Why mysterious , when
his name Is on tbo information ) They were
going to bring him hero , out dare not because -
cause they know that ho was bound to tes
tify to the lawful uiarriago of this poor
woman and Hurry.
The testimony of Johnson , ns to his con
nection with the negotiations carried on nt
Quincy as agent for King's father , was ro-
viewed. They thought they had trapped her"
nnd him too , but wo have it that afterwards
they were found living together again in
Chicago , and if Harry King's spirit
could bo brought bore now bo would
tell you that the love existing between him
and her was so binding as to defy * tno sepa
rating powers of human effort or human laxv.
It was love , and Webster in his definition
says that love Is of God. All his letters to
her commenced "My dear wifo" and ended
"Your loving husband. "
Then came the second trouble , in which his
people wanted to and said ttiey must get rid
of the woman. But not ono solitary word
baa over boon brought out to" show that
Hurry W. King , Jr. , did not want her for bis
wlfo , or "toll mo of a single tlmo if
you can wnero she has not told tha
truth. " A lot of educated men
got her into tholr power and tried
to make her sign a contract by representing
that Harry bad boon disinherited , and was
worthless , living in Omaha , and would never
see nor. again.
But , flttid she , "I can go there nnd make
him support mo. " Tholr reply was , "Wo
will run him away from there then as wo did
before , and it will do you no good. "
"Who is Luther Mill * ! " inquired Mr.
Baldwin. "Why , ho is the man , paid by old
man Kmg'a money , to draw that contract
and Induce her to sign it , Then lot irfo ask
whether Mills , and such a smooth spoken
man as J. McGregor Adams , talking for
two hours to ono poor , weak llt
tlo woman , could not get her
Into n condition wlioro she would
not know what to say or ao ! No ono know
whether she had read , heard or know what
the contents of that agreement wero. The
only thin ? Adams could remember about it
was that at Mills' request she put her name
to the document. By lyintr and misrepre
sentation , said the speaker , they InducoJ her
for the consideration of $1,500 to sign It.
About that time , they know , Hurry was mar
ried to another woman , but deliberately lied
to this ono about it. The next day she hoard
bo was married and went to bis father for an
explanation , but the father claimed to
know nothing about it and turned her away
with a short uncivil answer.
Then she went to Johnson , who admitted
he bad seen a paragraph in some newspaper
to that effect. Uealizing that she bad been
duped , and in a condition of inlnd uncon
scious of what she was doing , the woman
started as quickly as she could to see whether
it was true that she had boon deaertcd by the
man she loved , and who hud given her every
reason to believe ho loved her.
