Police Judge Crawford permitted Mrs.
Abble Rlre. chief witness In the Rustln
Davis murder case, to testify In the prelim
inary hearing Saturday, that Dr. Rustln
told her ho had secured a man to kill .him,
but denied the atate the rlsht to allow her
to testify tthat Dr. Rustin had told her
Charles K. Davis was to kill him.
Lines were drawn this close by the court
When the Rice wuraan took the stand to
finish her trtoty after the court had made
a ruling Friday evening which : the atate
supposed Would permit the woman to tell
all she knew as one of the conspirators
who had the cninmnn motive to take the
life of Dr. Froderlck T. Ilustln.
But Bcarrtly two questions had been
asked and answered by the woman until
Attorney Q'jiicy waa on his feet reading
authorities h shpw -the court that all the
testimony whtch a conspirator could give
In . reference to co-conspirators must be
declarations In pursuance of the conspir
acy. After that argument Attorney Uurley
objected'to practically every question asked
the Rice woman by the county attorney,
and the. court sustained about half of the
( . rigrht Over Fine Point.
Such a battle over fine-points of law and
the questions asked- by the county attor
ney continued all . morning end until ad
journment was taken at 12:30 p. m. until
10 o'clock Monday morntng.
County Attorney English - completed his
questioning ot the Rice woman, getting In
what replies he could and pointing out
each time to the court to secure the over
ruling of objections, that the answer would
be either a declaration In pursuance of the
conspiracy or else that the question was
about some act of the Rice woman, or
Wet she had seen. By close watching he
managed to get some important testimony
In. Monday morning she will be put on for
Tha couiUy attorney was taken by sur
prise when the attorneys for the defense
began arguing that most nf tv.
to be given by the Rice woman could not
be admitted, and some heat was shown
between the attorneys.
After Mr. Gurley had made his argu
ment that a large part of the testimony
could not be admitted, he wound up by this
"Why go ahead and admit here testlmnnv
that when the case comes before a Jury, if
It does, would not be tolerated? Why bind
this man over and force him to a trial
before a Jury Just to satisfy public cur
iosity? What la the use to take it to a
higher court, Just to terminate In a rarceT
wny put the state to this expense?"
atKngrliali la Sarcastic.
When the county attorney answered he
opened with some sarcastic remarks about
the common pleas of criminal lawyers.
"It Is wonderful solicitude which the
counsel for the defense always shows about
the finances of the statu and the expense
to tha people. But attorneys for tha de
fense always make this plea."
Mr. English reminded the court that the
ruling- to admit the statements of the Rice
woman aa to what Dr. Rustln had told
her about the plans to take his life, was
made with a full understanding aa to what
the Woman would tell on the stand and he
saw nothing In the objections made by Mr.
Qurley but an attempt to evade or secure in
some way a reversal of the decision of the
court on the question of admitting the Bice
Before the attorneys had concluded their
arguments as to what part of the tetlmony
should be admitted, both Mr. English and
Mr. Gurley had spoken at length, as well
aa Attorneys Ellick and Woodrough, while
Gurley had cross-questioned Judge Craw
ford as to what the court thought about
fine point in his legal arguments, what
constituted "declarations in pursuance of
emsplracy," and other objections which
the defense sought to have sustained. The
questions being fired at Judge Crawford by
Attorneys Gurley and Woodrough caused,
considerable amusement among court of
ficers and police In the room.
Mrs. Rica the Stand.
When the Rice woman took the stand at
10 o'clock the room was crowded with men,
no women attending except four who were
present as witnesses. The Rice woman
waa very nervousr but her replies came
thick and fast and the attorneya for the
defense had to move to strike out more
often than to object to the answer being
made. The woman showed a disposition to
get the name of Charles E. Davis into al-
I most every answer. When the county at
torney would ask her a question she usually
volunteered a few side lights which gave
the attorneys more ground for argument.
The woman's testimony before the argu-
menta had brought the story to the time of
the closing chapter In the life of Dr. Rus
tln. She was In the physician's of fire in the
Paxton building Tuesday afternoon, Sep
tember 1, the evening before the tragedy
and a man came Into the office whom she
afterward learned was Davis. Dr. Rustln
stepped Into a vacant room near his office
and talked with the man. Then he re
turned to the private office to talk with the
"When Dr. Rustin returned to you In the
private room after being out to consult
this person, was there anthlng then said
by him with reference to any change In
his plans with reference to his death?"
asked the prosecutor.
"What did he say?"
" 'You are released from .your promise,
as I have a man to kill me. "
"Did he say who this man was?"
It was this question which lighted the
fireworks, and the court held that the
woman could not answer the question, ar
Dr. Rustln telling her thai he had 4 man
to kill him and ahe waa released, waa "a
declaration in pursuance of the conspir
acy," and that ahe was released as a co
conspirator from that moment; that for
her to testify as to who the man waa couid
not be so considered.
"That's drawing a line pretty fine," said
the county attorney whe,n Hie ruling was
made. "It la pretty fine to allow this
woman to say 'a man' and deny us the
right to have her aay Charles E. Davis.
Elgbteen Objections Made.
On a motion by the defense to strike out
the won n's answers after a number had
been given, eighteen objoctiona were made
by Mi. Ourley in half an hour and Judge
Crawford sustained nine of them.
Then the Rice woman was permitted to
tell of her movements the afternoon and
evening of September I, and ahe reiterated
the atory told before the coroner's Jury of

she met Dr. Rustln In his office, she told
of Davis coming to the office, going out

It waa about 10 o'clock, the Rico woman
believes, when she slartid to tako her lust
walk with Dr. Frederick T. Rustin. and
with no show of feeling whatever told o
how they walked along Harney street.
'The-'doctor pointed out to mo places
where he had lived with his wife and child

and his unfortunate condition and finally
of hia plan to take his life.'

woman's statement describing how Duvls
