The saloonnen of Council Bluffs. In
seeking to secure a new general petllion

from the combined forres of the Minis

nearly two hours the jury listened to the
reading of the hypothetical question, taking
more than ten thousand words, aa pro

alienists are to predicate their opinions of
the mental condition of ' the defendant,
Captain Peter C. Halna, when he shot and

During the cross-examination of the first

sanity ranging from ordinary melancholia,
to site ravings of a hopeless lunatic were
"Maniac depressive insanity." the alien
ist explained, was a form of "stuporous
melancholia," subject to violent maniacal
outbursts, such as Captain Hains la alleged
to have experienced when he shot Annls,
The period of "Impulsive Insanity." the
witness said, lasted from the time the de
fendant first heard the name of Annla
mentioned on the Bayslde Tacht Club
float, until the last of the eight bullets ha
been discharged Into the body of his victim,
then, according to the alienist, a relieving
quiescence of mind from "the pent up fury"
followed and the defendant lapsed into a
state of "mtintc depressive Insanity." His
mental condition had Improved since that
time, he added. -
Dr. Manson was. on the witness stand
under cross-examination when court ad

will be called by the defense.
Only once during the reading of the hy

counsel for the defense, did Captain Hains
show a flash of Interest. That was
when the lawyer read In dramatic terms
the alleged confession of Claudia Hains.
Then Captain Hains raised himself In his

eyes, glanced at -the lawyer. His Interest,

(From a 9t:iff Correspondent. 1
1K3 MOIXK8. Mav R.-tSpclal.)-The
movement atarted by Congressman Murphf
of Mlssfurl in Introducing a resolution lit
congress to Investigate the official career
of Judge Rinlth McPherson la arousing
much comment throughout -Iowa, especially
among members of the bar. The general
Impression, Is that It will .co-.ne to nought,
for nothing would remove Judge McPhersna
but an Impeachment In congress, and this,
they say. Is doubtful.., though there Is gen
eral criticism of Judge McPherson for his
methods of court procedure and his alleged
corporation tendencies. , ,
lawyers . quite generally , criticise ths
judge for his autocratic methods, his harsh
ness to thsm, his vllverslon from ths usual
lines of evidence and practically Instructing
the jury In some cases what kind, of
verdict they shall return. ; However,, this Is
nothing upon which Impeachment proceed
Ings might be sustained. ...
There Is much criticism of the judge In
Des Moines-because he. touX from the, slats
courts the 'quo quarranto proceedings
against the Des Moines city railway,' which
Involves determining whether the railway
company haa a perpetual franchise. It Is
liberally predicted he will lb reversed In
his opinion In this-matter In the highest
tribunal. Judge McPherson also assumed
charge, -when It - was ' first questioned, of
the Blanchard anti-compact law, passed by
the Iowa - legislature, i providing-that It,
should be Illegal for1 Insurance companies
to combine to fix rates; -He held this law i
was unconstitutional-. : The supreme court j

and since the operation of ths Maw 'fire
rates In Des Moines' have' fallen off fully
half what they were during the permissible
"compact" days. So In. many Instances his
holdings have given the .Impression that he
leans strongly with the capitalized corpora
tlore. He la liberally criticized for this,
but a, man cannot be Impeached on his
Judgment and It ia not believed this would
be a prevailing question ; In Impeachment
While Judge McPherson . Is not popular
as a judge and is generally criticised by
lawyers for hts methods, It Is quite
universally expressed among his critics
that the effort In congress to bring about
Impeachment proceedings will not ' de
