and tne convenience of the crowd. When

THE DURRANT TRIAL.
Examination of Innumerable
San Fiiancisco, Sept. 4. Tho trial of
Theodore Durrani for tho inurdor of
Dlauclio l.amont, was rostimed this
moruiug. Tho courtroom wub crowded
and hundreds .were unnblo to obtain ad
mission. Tho first witness was 0. U. Noble, tho
uuelo of Dlancho Lamont. Ho testified
to her disapK3arnnco aud to tho finding
of her dead body. I
Dr. J. S. Barrett, the surgeon who per
formed tho autopsy, testified that
Itlauclio died of strangulation, Tho wit
ness was cross-examined by Deuproy as
to his exivricuco as u surgeon and in
mnkiug autopsies. Iu reply to Iho cros-
examination of the defendant's attorney.
Dr. Barrett said ho bad performed about
100 autopsies last year. Tho defense
tried to break down tho whness' testi
mony that lauche I-nmont's strangula
tion had been by hands choking her.
Tho defense tried iu vain to have the
witness admit that strangulation might
havo been caused by asphyxiation in
stead of by hands, but Barrett stood the
test of a severe cross-exuminattou with
out altering his testimony in the least.
Barrett continued his testimony aud said
he found excessive congestion in each
lung of Blanche I-amoiit after her death.
There was decomposition 'enough in the
body to show that the had been dead in
the neighborhood of two weeks. Wit
ness said all other organs of the mur
dered girl were in a healthy condition.
It is stated that District Attorney
Barnes has about decided on tho follow
ing order in which tho witneaa will tie
examined: Next is to come is Mrs.
Charles (.!. Noble, tho aunt of Blanche
Lamont. Mrs. Noblo will ill of her
niece's disappearance aud will relate a
conversation held with Durrant on the
evening she was first missiug. She "ill
tell how he took Thackeray's "New-
comes" to her homo lor Blanche Lamont
the following eveuing, 31 ra. Noble's
testimony will be lengthy, as she has
much to relate, about Durrani's friend
ship for her niece, his proposal of mar
rijge and the circumstances connected
with the dead girl's rings that were re
turned to her through the mail.
Dr. Bartett said the fiager-marks on
Blanche Lamonl'd throat were male by
one person in Ins opinion. Thero was
every evidence of a struggle between the
victim and her stranglcr. When ex
amined as to the point of digestion which
Urn condition of the dead girl's stomach
indicated, the witness' answers carried
ont the theory of the eopIe that she was
murdered between 4 and 5 o'clock in tho
afternoon, whsn the noon meal had been
digested and the btomacb, was compara
Court here adjourned until - p. m.
Mrs. Mary Yogel will next be called.
She will stale that she saw Durrant on
the afternoon of April 3 pass up and
down in front of the normal school for
nearly an hour. That when school ad
journed she saw Durrant join a young
girl and go off on a car with her.
Miss Edwards, Miss Pleasant and Miss
Lanigan will then tell how Kiev saw
Blanche Lainont join Durrant after
school, and get ou a Powell-street car
Martin Qninlan will state that he met
Durrant and a young girl on Twent j-ec-
o'clock, on the afternoon of April 3. He
will say that the girl he saw with Dur
rant wore a dark woolen dress and a
large hat, and carried a nackaee of
Then will come out one of the most
important witnesses, M-s. Caroline Leak.
Mrs. Leak will tell 1.10 court that she
saw Blanche Lamont aud Theodore Dor-
rant enter the side gate of Emauucl
church at 4:10 o'clock on the alternoon
of April 3, the day Blanche Lamont dis
appeared. ilrs. Leak will tell how she saw the
couple go into the church, but how she
watched in vain for them to come out.
It has not yet been decided whether
John E. West, tho conductor on tho
Powell-street line, whose car Blanche
Lamont and Durrant aro supposed to
have boarded, will bo called upon to tes
tify or not. He will be the ninth wit
ness. If it is deemed advisable to call
him, Georgo King will tako the stand.
King will state that while ho was prac
ticing in the Sunday-school room, be
tween 4 and C o'clock, on tho afternoon
of April 3, Durrant entered the room by
the backstairway. He will say tho pris
oner had his coat off; his hair was dis
heveled, and be was excited. Durrant
said he had been fixing tho gns above the
auditorium and had been overcome, and
asked him to get him some brouio
seltzcr. Tho Examiner says the prosecution
has a witness whose testimony will show
a motive for the murderers something
that baa been lacking heretofore, on ac
count of Durrant's standing in social and
religious circles. The name of the wit
ness is Elmer Wolfe, and it is said that
ho will swear that on April l, ono day
before Blanche Lamont was murdered,
he and Durrant held a conversation
which explains, with terrible signifi
cance, the young Btudont's motive for
luring the unfortunate girl into tho eanc
tuary. Wolfo has told the oIicc and
w ill tell tho jury that on tho afternoon of
April 2, he and Durrant held this con
versation which nicaut so much to tho
girl whom both had known only a fow
Durrani commented en tho beauty of
Blanche. In a tone of exhultation aud
not of respect, ho assured Wolfe that she
was a pure girl, and that ho intended to
rob her of that virtue which alio so
prized. The girl prized her honor more
than her life; that explains tho tragedy
of the following day. This overwhelming
leslimony which Wolfe will givo was
kept a secret by tho prosecution. Tho
defense and the public havo thought tho
young man was a friend of the
accused, and would take tho stand
only to speak a good work for him
Intimations wore given that Wolfe would
bo dragged into tho enso in a manner lit
tie to his liking. Thero was nosuspicion
that Durrant had confided to his friend
the ignoblo purpose which Inspired him.
Ho spoke in words far plainor than those
which have been used. Ho left no pos
sible doubt of what ho meant. Tho
source of this evi Jonco is, in tho opinion
of Captain Lees, one of tho strongest
proofs of its reliability. Had some ono
enjoying no moro than a simplo acquaint
ance with Durrant como forward with It,
there might bo some doubt, but Us spon
sor posscssod tbo studont's confidence,
shared Ida pleasures, and took part iu
much of tho dally routino of his lifo.
From his own circlo his condemnation
comes like a thuudorbolt.
Ono of tho interesting probabilities in
tho great caso which is now in progress
is that Attorney-General Fitzgerald may
bo called upon to mako tho closing argu
ment for tho state. Tho Attorney-general
is known as ono of tho ablo criminal
lawyers in tho state. Ho has been a
member of tho supremo court of tho
statoaud is thoroughly familiar with
every snng which awaits tho pleador iu
criminal law. It is urged Hint tho urcat
public im portunco of tho caso domands
his presence and activo participation.
Thoso who are urging that tho iittornoy
goneral should mako tho closing argu
ments wish in no-way to reflect upon
District Attornoy Barnes.
They are frank to a :knowledgo his
great ability but would like to seo him
fortified in a matter which touches the
stato so closely as this case. Acting
iiK)n that view thoy hope that tho attor
ney-general will bo invited to mako tho
closing argument. Attorney-General
Fitzgerald has been questioned about tho
inattor and will willingly tako part if he
be invited to do so.
Opening of the Campaign.
Toi'KKA, Kan., Sept. 3. At the Labor
day celebration in this city ex-Senator
Ingidls spoke from the same platform
with J. It. Burton, who is looked upon
aslngall's principal opponent in tho
race for the United States senatorship.
Their appearance was regarded as tho
opening of the senatorial campaign.
The ex-senator openly says he is a can
didate for his old seat. He is taking a
friendly stand in favor of silver in his
speeches. After speaking in a general
way on labor -topics, Senator Ingalls
turned his attention to the last con
gress: "If this were a congress inadequate
incompetent, insincere, hostile to the
best interests of this country, it was not
the fault of congress so much as it was
the constituents that sent them there."
Turning to the charges that seats
were bought in the United States senate,
he laid the blame at the same door,
thoso who elected senators. Ho said :
"There is one remedy; abolish the
present antiquated, clumsy, superfluous
and detrimental method of choosing
senators by legislatures and let them be
elected by a direct vote of tho people of
the state as they ought to be elected."
This statement was loudly cheered.
Ingalls went a step further aud said
that the only way to purify this govern
ment was to trust the people, and he
even favored the election of president
and vice-president by direct vote. He
roundly scored the Standard Oil Com
pany and various trusts. He thought
labor had a right to combine, and spoke
strongly against indiscriminate immi
gration. He closed by urging the work
ingman to remember that the redress of
his wrongs is in his own hands.
Struck a Handcar.
Geaxts Pass, Or., Sept. 2. An unfor
tunate accident occurred this morning
near tunnel No. 0. on the railroad, IS
miles north of this city. An engine, go
ing from this place to meet the passenger
train at Glendalc, met a section hand
car, with four men on it, on a trestle
about 0O reet titgti, and 'crashed into
them. Two of the men succeeded in
jumping in time to save themselves, but
the other two were not so fortnnato and
were picked up nearly dead and brought
to- this city, where they now lie in a
critical condition. August Lorenz, the
section foreman, was bruised on tho
head, and it is believed his skull is
fractured. He is now unconscious.
John Allen, a laborer, is badly bruised
and cut, but bis braises are not as seri
ous as the other. Both men will be
taken to the company's hospital as soon
as they can bo moved.
Dcuun, Ga., Sept. 3. J. E. Barber,
who left this city last might, has had 22
wives. Barlxr accompanied b3 a woman
and a child, arrived at Lothair, in Mont
gomery county, about a year ago. He
procured employment with a naval-ntore
firm as chief farrier. Recently he came
to this city, and yesterday was married
to a widow of this town. Immediately
after the ceremony Barber called the
justice outside and said :
"Judge, this makes tho twenty-second
woman I have married, and in a few
days I'm going to havo another."
Tho official was astonished, and inado
known the startling news. Tho woman
at l3thairclaimul sbo was under tbo in
fluence of drugs when alio was married
to Barber. She is left in a destituto con
dition. In Orange county. Fla., Barker

sufficient evidence in proof of the propo
sition that be who conducts his farm in
a diversified manner invariably reaps
good profits. He raises everything that
