The clock waa a new one, aald
tbe wltneaa. "It wag lying with tha

running. When I put It on Its back
aa I found It It stopped. Mra. Cowing

Cross-examined by Mr."v Brownell
Mra. deParqu said sh and Mra. Cow

Saturday morning. Tbe lawyer asked
If ther bad not been a great many

ering In the affirmative Mrs. deParqu
aald tha clock waa to aom extent ob

Mra. Thomaa Cowing. "We found the
clock lying acroea the room from the
table where Mrs. Hill had placed It
It waa In a position ao It could not

Corroborates Clock Story. -
Tbe witness corroborated th testi
mony of Mr. deParque aa to tbe clock
having atopped at eight mlnutea to

and atop when placed on It back."
Ralph Wllla, who iiv. near Araen-

gone to that city to ae a Rose Festi

neaa. "But when 1 got off th car I
aaw the defendant etandins on th
platform. I also saw Howard Russell
ther. I don't know whether the car
waa on time, but I fudge It got to th
station at l!:t5 or II: SO o'clock."
Tha wltnes. said Harvey toia mm
aa ha atepped off tha car to be care

coming hi way, but declared h aaw
several persons at th atatlon. Mr.
Ooodal testified ther. wera two waya
to get to th Hill bom, but In either
case th. Delk bouae. where it waa
charged th ax with which th crlm
waa committed waa obtained, would
hav to b passed. On way waa about

"T aaw a man on tn piatiorm ana

Ardenwald 8tatlon. Th wltneaa aald
ha hat been to Portland to aa tha

his wlfa and three children, and hla

RaoorUr T.H. Of Contract.
prrv Parnsley. a newspaper
porter, aald that Harvey admitted tb
econd day after hla arrest that b
had signed a contract with Bowerman
a. Abh Portland lawvera. to pay them
$20,000 to defend blm In caa of bla
arreat In connection with th case.
The witness declared Harvey bad told
him In th presence of Sheriff Mass
that Mr. Abhs and a detective named
Mitchell had coma to hi. home aome
tlm. aft.r th. crime; had Informed
him th. "woods war. full of detec
tives or sheriffs" and that h. haa
ter go to Portland with them, rarna
ley did not remember that Harvey aald

Harvey employing tha lawyera to d-
fanit him. Th reporter recited that
Harvey had told him h went ro me
and Mr. Mitchell b algned tha eon
tract or agreement rroly aald be
formed tb conclusion from Harvsy's
statement tbat b (Harvey) Inttnded
to convey tbe Impression that ba waa
alarmed and went with tb lawyer and
detective In their automobile while
In a confused auto of mind. . Tb
reporter aald tbat Harvey told blm
tbat sometime later after conferring
with bia wife, they went to the of
fice of Mr. Able and aaw tbe alleged
After tb publication of the Inter
view of tha reporter with Harvey,
Messrs. Bowerman and Able, In state
ments In th newspaper denied em
phatically that either of them with a
detective bad gone to Harvey'a home
and taken him to their office. They
aald that Harvey bad com to them
at their office of bla own volition,
and had retained tbem.
Mra. HHI'a Bieter faint. .
Mr. Idleman. who waa first to sum
up, aald th evidence waa not suffic
ient upon wblch to "bold a dog." lie
placed great stress upon tb state
ment made by the wltneaa Wills that
Harvey bad cautioned blm aa be atep
ped from th car to be careful not
to trip on tbe board.
"I hardly think a man contemplat
ing tbla horrible, tbla belnoua, thla
almost unbelievable crime". (At thla
point Mra. deParqu fainted, causing
a atlr In tbe courtroom. Sh fell heav
ily on th floor and waa taken from
tbe room.) "I hardly think, aald th
lawyer continuing, "that a man con
templating a crime of such an atroc
ious character would have presence
of mind enough to warn a man he
did not even know, against a board,
telling blm not to trip over it"
Deputy District Attorney Btlpp In
summing up said tbe evidence waa
sufficient upon which to bold tho ac
cused. He asserted tbat tb. testi
mony .bowed that Harvey bad "hung
back" at th. station while tba otber.
who cam on the car went directly
to their homes.
"He ahonld have been bom by
11; 40 o'clock," aald th. prosecutor.
"He waa not sewn by anybody aa he
went home. Th. Matthews' dogs
barked at 12:45 o'clock; tb clock In
the Hill boma atopped at eight min
utes to 1, and Harvey waa th. man
who had been left behind."
Tha prosecutor aald no man but
on. with a guilty knowledge would
employ a lawyer befor. b. even bad
"If this man' Is to be held on thla
evidence then no man In thla court
room la aafe, and I abould advise
every man, woman and child In thla
county to carry a gun In every pocket."
ahouted Mr. Brownell In the course of
hla argument Thla brought applause
from all part of tha room and It
waa sometime befor. Justice of th.
Peace Bamaon restored order.
Mr. Brownell told th court that It
waa hla duty to Bet the prisoner free
and not allow th. stigma to rest upon
him and bl. family upon each evi
"Either do that" said the lawyer,
"or compel the prosecution to pro
duce some evidence opon which the
court can conscientiously hold thla
man. There la absolutely nothing
against him. - If one of the Main
street banks were robbed and a man
had been seen getting off a car late
at night ' anywhere on Main street
that act would be Just aa conclusive
of hi. having robbed the bank, aa the
evidence given here la that my client
committed thla outrageous crime."
Br. Brownell referred to the pris
oner once aa "brother Harvey." and
aald bla reputation had been spotless
up to the time of hla arrest tn this
case. The lawyer made a atrong and
