Kvldencr for Defense Today.
Attorneys Richard Horton, J. K. Rod

representing Hauser, refused last night
to say what witnesses will he Intro
duced in his behalf today. It Is known,
however, that Mrs. May Hauser, wife of
the defendant, who came from Wichita
to attempt to save him from the electric
chair, will try to prove an alibi for him.
The atate completed Its CRae by intro
ducing three witnesses yesterday after
noon. These were Watson A. Hitchcock,
20S South Twenty-fourth street; C. D.
Crosier, 2117 Webster, and Steve Maloney,
capt&in of Omaha detectives.
Hitchcock corroborated testimony of
Nels Gunderson .street railway conductor,
that Hauser boarded a westbound Far
nam car at 11:30 o'clock the night of the
murder, October 16. He remembered
Hauser, he said, on account of his agi
tated manner. He testified, as did all
the other witnesses who saw the man on
that night, that he wore .a dark suit
without any overcoat and a dark soft
Tells Where Hanser Lived.
Crlzier Is proprietor of a rooming
house, where Hauser and his wife and
3-year-old daughter, Llda, lived from Oc
tober 1 to 21. Attorneys for the defense
admitted that Hauser was In Omaha
during this period and objected to the
testimony, but it was received. Crosier
said Hauser stayed at home In the day
time and went out at night Objectiona
to further testimony concerning his per
sonal habits were sustained.
Captain Maloney told of theldentlflca-
tlon ofHauser by Miss Grace Slater, eye
witness of the murder, at Wichita, after
the man had been brought from Indianapr
oils, where he was arrested.
The detective chief was anxious to tell
a number of circumstances concerning
Hauser, to which objections of the de
fense were susxalned. He provoked hur
ried protests hry Hausers attorneys and
Judge English when he intimated that
the defendant had confessed the holdup
of the W. T. Hause home a week before
the date of the Smith murder.
Maloney Identified a huge, wicked look

Chief of Police John Hays of Wichita
had received from Hauser and given to
him. Hauser admitted the grun was his,
the captain testified.
Jadce Asks If It Is Loaded.
As the swapon was handed to Maloney
by the county attorney Its mussle pointed
ominously at Judge English. The court
inquired in a dignified manner:
"Are there any bullets In that cylin
der?" "No. sir," ssld Mr. Msgnry. "It Is
The Judge held that the gun should not
be received in evidence, owing to lack
of evidence connecting It with the mur
der of Mr. Smith. Dr. S. McClenaghan,
coroner's physician, had testified that he
believed Mr. Smith's wound was in
flicted by a .3$-raliber gun, but. said he

Wife Tries to Save Bandit.
Mrs. May Hauser, 27-year-o!d wife of
Arthur Hauser, who. according to police
reports, furnished Informat'on which re
sulted in his arrest, arrived from Wichita
to attempt by her testimony to ssve him
from the electric chain
With her were the -yer-old daughter
tif the bandit, who resembles him to a
remarkable degree, and Mauser's aged
mother. The trio came from Wichita,
Kan., which is their horns.
The wife declared she will testify that
Hauser was with her the night of the
murder, October M. thus providing an
alibi snd a possible escape from the net
of evidence which the state already has
drawn tightly about the alleged mur
derer of W. H. Smith. Woodmen of the

The two women exhibited Intense af

old, rushed Into the court room, throw
her arms about her son and kissed him
repeatedly. Wblls District Judge English

Not Allowed In Court.
The wife and child were not allowed
to come into the court room, but Hauser
met them during recess at 11 o'clock.
The bars of a cell were between them,
hut the man and wife each held the
other's hand during their flfteen-mtnuto
The little girl held all their attention.
They conversed through the child, who Is
able to repeat almost any sentence. Hau
ser reached an arm through the bars and
fondled hie little daughter. He niade her
stand on a bar of the cell so that I might
hold her upright with his arm. He held
his face up to the bars.
If Hauser knew of the repart that his
wife had given him up he said nothing
of It to his wife. Mrs. Hauser refused
to make any statement for publication,
save the announcement of her purpose
In Omaha, The mother had been In
atructed by attorneys to say nothing. "IU
la a good boy," she declared, however.
Horton Resumes Seat.
Richard Horton. chief counsel for
Hauser, returned from Kansas, where he
was called by the Illness of his father,
and resumed his seat In the court room.
During the morning Miss Grace Slater,
chief witness for the state, finished cross
examination. Other witnesses continued
the identification -of Hauser.
Miss lone Fogg, 3118 Dodge street,
whose home overlooks the corner at which
the murder of Mr, Smith occurred, tes
tified that after she heard a shot and
Miss Slater's scream, she saw a man
dressed In a dark suit and dark hat going
north through the tennis court at her
home and that another person was in
front of him. The man's arm was out
stretched and he was crouching over, she

Croan-Kinmtnr Mlsa Slater.
When cross-examination of Miss Gra e
Slater. Smith's companion at the time of
the murder, was resumed, attorneys for
the defense confronted her with alleged
statements made last October thnt she
would be unable to Identify the murderer.
She said she did not remember whether
she snid at the inquest "No, sir; I could
not Identify the man; It was dark." Che
admitted she then said she would have
to hear his voice in order to identify
him, snd ssld she had "felt that way
about It, then."
On re-dlrect examination County At
torney Mlagney brought out the state
ment by her that any doubts concerning
her ability to Identify the murderer had
existed prior to the time she first saw
Hauser, and that she had always been
positive that none of the other suspects
shown her by the police was the murderer.
