Jury Will Hear Story of Beard

of Richmond Youth on Trial
for Murder of His Wife.
(Br tb International Npt- frrlca )
Chesterfield Courfhoiisc, Va.. Sept. 5.
One way alone it became apparent
today remains to eave young Henry
Clny Bcattie Jr. from the electric chair.
That is blfi own testimony.
Perhaps (though it looks extremely
doubtful) ho may convince at least one
Juror that a bearded highwayman, as he
has contendr-d nil along, killed his wire
while ehooting at him when both were
. in Ms automohlle. Then he may get
disagreement of the Jury.
This evening; after a lot of character
witnesses had been summoned to tell
how happily the rich young man .and
Ms bride lived together and after other
Witnesses had told how perhaps it was
not JJeattie who waa observed near the
scene of the crime, but another man,
th difense, concluded its evidence ex
" Stake All on One Theory.
. '' Day after day it has been announced
that next day he waa to take the stand
and make a gamble for his Jlfe. Never
has there been any certainty of this.
Now HA absolutely assured that with

thouga it is a legal holiday, the boy

in every possible manner so that Henry

Goes on Stand Monday.
' The young son of the rich department
tore owner will go An the stand at 10
' o'clock Monday. Hia direct examina
tion will last about two hours. Then
Ma cross examination will consume at
least four hours and may go well Into
the night for the court has decided to
hold night sessions hereafter in order
to wind up " the case.
General opinion goes but two ways
if Seattle can repeat his story about a
' ' bearded highwayman attacking him -and
cling to It, ha may gain an acquittal at
' the hands of the Jury. If he cannot and
. , makes the least little break under the
, .cross fire of the state's attorney, Louis
.' W. Edenberg, he will be sent swiftly to
' his death. There are no half way mea
sures in this state. The best posted

V Chum Zs Poor Witness.
i ' The adherents of the defense were by
' no means encouraged by the day's pro
ceedlngs. They were more or less ln
v lerestlng. But the helpfulness of any
thing that developed was small. Beat-
tie's personal chum, Billy Sampson, was
called to help wra our or nis atmcuity
but succeeded only in putting him in
,. deeper. ....
Charles Kastelburg. a wealthy resi
' denty of Richmond, was summoned,
, mucU against his will, to show that he
probably was the nan who was seen
with a halted motor car and a female
... companion on the Midlothian turnpike
on the night of the murder. But
' "neither witness seemed to sway the
: ' jurors, very much one Way or another.
. t TJor did a lot of testimony givers who
appeared on the stand to say Beattie
- and Lis wife lived happily together or
' . else that Paul Beattie the cousin who
swore Henry .had confessed to him
was a liar.
Monday will be the big. day of the
trial, undoubtedly, when the wealthy
h boy tries to save himself. He will
probably occupy the stand all day Mon-

Hawthorne Race Track, 111., Sept. 2.
County Sheriff Zlmmer, Chief Deputy
Peters and 1J0 deputies came to the
Hawthorne track this afternoon to
watch for gamblers. Arrangements had
been made for the speedy conveyance of
prisoners to Oak Fark and hearing in
the Justice courts of that place. Jus
tices Kenndall and McKee had "consent
ed to sit in the afternoon to hear such
cases as might be taken .before them.
Several automobiles were ordered to
be waiting at the track for the con
veyance of the prisoners to Oak Park.
Sheriff Zimmer said that he was not
going to allow any gambling at any of
the three days' races if a large posse
of deputies could prevent It.
Fifty bP3kmakers with their clerks,
who had made preparations to receive
money from the race track patrons.

Birch and McKay Creeks
(Special to The Journal.)
Pendleton, Oh, Sept. 2. A big victory
was won by the wateA users on Birch
and McKay creeks and the lower Uma
tilla river, when Water Commissioner
George T. Coohran allowed the motion
for continuing the 300 or more cases
which the government had'' instituted
against them and named the second
Monday in May as the date for the set
ting pf the trials.
Consideration of the motion took
nearly the entire day, Attorney Oliver
P. Morton for the government contest
ing the move bitterly. Colonel J. H.
Raley introduced the motion and made
the opening argument and was followed
by Attorneys Fee, Lowell and Drowley
for the water users. 'They declared
their clients did not believe two and
one half acre feet to the acre sufficient
for ' Irrigation purposes as maintained
bv the government, but would be un
able to . pr'Qve their claim, at ..an. .. early
trial because they have not been given
sufficient time to measure water they
