FIGHT OPENS IN BURNETT CASE
Or-poalna- Coaaael Addrraa Jary la
Trial at Alleged Aceesewr
CHICAGO, Feb. 28. Opposing counsel In
the case of Dr. Orville 8. Burnett, charged
with being an accessory before sod sfter
the fact ot the belt-murder of Mrs. Char
lotte Nlchol, made their c, enlng addrenses
to a Jury In Judge Baker's iurt today.'
The prosecution charged that Burnett, a
former college athlete and already mar
ried, had not only violated bis own mar
riage vows, but had broken up ths home
ot an honest and respectable gentleman.
Ho had agreed to die with her when the
woman found that they were to bo sep-1
arated. He had purchased morphine for
her and del "berately allowed her to swal
low It in his presence, v. "
Then," aald the prosecutor, "to carry
out hia end of the bargain, he scratched
himself with a pin!" .
Mr. . Nlchol, the wronged husband, the
lawyer declared, lay ill In hla Tennessee
home, and was unable to appear against
the man who had wrecked his life.
Attorney O'Donnell, for the defense, at
tacked the character of Mrs. Nlchol. It
waa she, said he, who brought about the
acquaintance between herself and Dr. Bur
nett ' She sought bis company Incessantly,
the lawyer said, and . borrowed money to
aecura the apartments at the Marlborough
hotel, where she was later found dead. He
dented that Dr. Burnett had purchased the
poison or that .he had known of Mrs.
NVrhol's Intention to commit suicide, main
taining tbat when Burnett awoke from a
stupor caused by liquor fee found Mrs.
Nlchol dead and a bettle pirtly filled with
morphine by her side. Filled with horror
at the tragic outcome of tleir liaison, ho
took the poison, and then, still more des
perate, he stabbed himself and then turned
on the gas. AM his attempts were futile,
aald the attorney, and he was left to face
what hla folly, pot hia criminality, had
ln part brought about
Dr. R. W. Carter, who attended Burnett
when he and the dead woman were dis
covered together ln the hotel, waa tha first.
witness called. Dr. Carter testified that
Burnett waa not dazed or in any way ap
parently insane at the time.
H. W. Julian, a druggist, partially Iden
tified Burnett as the mau Who purchased
the vial of morphine tabletsfrom him on
the forenoon of October 20.
Mrs. Sylvia Bryan, a colored maid at the
hotel, testified aa to Burnett and Mrs.
Nlchol renting a suite ot rooms. She also
testified that It was not Burnett's first
visit to tthe hotel. She never saw Mra.
Nlchol there before, , but sad tbat Bur
nett had been there several limes before. -
Mrs. Burnett, wife of the man . on trial,
appeared ln court with her husband, and
attempted to sit with him behind the rail.
Judge Baker, however, refuted to let her
remain there. The woman broke Into tears
and waa led to an anteroom, where she re
malned aatll court adjourned.
After the state had completed Its evl
dence the defendant's attorneys made an
effort to have Judge Baker dismiss the

NEW YORK, Feb. 28. Charles F. Jones
was on the witness stand today In the
trial of Albert T. Patrick. His re-direct
testimony was completed after a few un
important questions, and, the defense hav
ing no questions to ask in re.cross-ex-amlDatlon,
he was dismissed. Jones iden
tified several of Rice's papers In Swenson
books. Ho was not permitted to tell more
about tbe chloroforming ot Rice.
John M. Coleman, a lawyer of Houston,
Tex., called by the state, fald he had
known Patrick since 1884, while they were
at college ' together. His relations with
Patrick had been most friendly.' Coleman
told, of a talk between Patrick, himself
and Judge Ford of Texas, ln this city In
October, 1800, about a month before Rice'a
death. Patrick aald be was still taking
testimony In tbe Mrs. Rice will csss. "Tbe
question as to the' probable duration ot

"and we talked of ths good care ha took

William L. Jones, brother of Charles F.
Jones, waa recalled. On hla first examina

purchase of chloroform for his brother.

WASHINGTON. Feb. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Dietrich today demon
strated that he waa neither "coward nor
hypocrite," as Tillman alleged the repub
lican senators were In his speech last
week, by strongly objecting to Tillman's
withdrawing the . insulting remarks he
made on the floor of the senate when .the
question of the adoption of the resolu
tions of censure reported by the commit
tee 'on privileges and elections was under
consideration. ' ' .
Senator Dietrich, ln explaining why he
objected, said that he for one wanted' the
senator from South Carolina to, under
stand the sentiment that Tillman did not
belong ln that chamber, and he wanted- to
protest as earnestly as he knew how
against the use of such .language as was
applied by Senator Tillman to the repub
lican' aide of the senate chamber.
"Not only did he Insult the members ot
the republican side," aald Mr. Dietrich,
"but he also Insulted the uemory ot our
lata prestdent, and for one I did not want
to stand mute when' such an aspersion was
being cast upon William McKinley. I for
one believe that Senator Tillman should
have been punished In tbe strongest man
ner possible, thst his offense wss one that
should not have been condoned, and I
think the measure of punishment should
be twenty times more severe on .Tillman's
part than on the part of McLaurln.
"I am constrained to believe, however,
that my objections to the withdrawal of
the second insult will not be noted In the
record, aa Senator Frye, presiding officer,
did not recognize me when I objected to
permitting Senator Tillman to withdraw
the language he used when bis name was
called to vote. Senator Frye intimated to
me that he did not want to recognize me
aa making the objection, probably on the
ground that he wanted the strife to term
inate, but nevertheless I . wanted Senator
Tillman to understand that he could not
continue to add Insult to the members of
the republican side of the chamber with
out a protest from me."
