HOLMES' WE4RY TRIAL
Takes a Humoristic View of
APPEARS TO BE CHEERFUL
Barnes Is Still Arguing the Durrant
Case Draws Fearful Compar
slons The Charge Will
Philadelphia, Oct. 31. When priv
ileged pereona had been admitted today
to the courtroom in which the trial of
Holmes is proceeding, there appeared to
be almost aa many women aa men pre
eent. Holmes was as calm and unmoved
as ever. He was placed in the dock at
10 o'clock, and had a long and earnest
colloquy with hia counsel. Holmea waa
apparently offering suggestions. He
appeared brighter and more cheerful
than any time since the trial began, and
after counsel reeumed his seat, he chat
ted and laughed with two court officers.
The first witness wa9 Sidney I. Samuels,
a member of the bar at Fort Worth, Tex.
He invariably referred to Holmes as the
"individual." Holmes smiled broadly
whenever the term waa used District At
torney Graham produced a note, identi
fied by Mrs. Pietzel yesterday, as one
that Holmes had pretended to pay at a
St. Louis bank, for which he got $5,000
from her. Samuels said the body of the
note was in his handwriting. In the
latter part of April or early in May, 1894,
there was in Fort Worth a man known
as H. M. Pratt, overseeing the erection
of a three-story structure, aa agent for
Benton T. Lyman, the supposed owner.
Pratt saw witness and tried to negotiate
a loan of $16,000 by mortgaging the pro
perty. The note waa drawn up and
signed by Benton T. Lyman. Subse
quently Pratt claimed to have lost the
note, and told witness he would draw up
a second note. The note was never in
dorsed, nor the loan made.
Graham sought to prove that the note
was never a legal document. Inspector
Gerry, of the insurance company, was
re-called, Graham saying he proposed to
prove by him that Holmes waa much
married, and that Misa Yoke was not
his lawful wife, and is, therefore, incom
petent to testify-
Gerry said he had seen at the prison
er's house in Wilmettee, III., a women
representing herself aa Mrs. H. H.
Holmea. He identified the photograph
of her. She waa not Miss Yoke. Last
December witness told Holmes, in prison,
of his visit to Wilmette. Holmes eaid
he wanted to write a letter to his wife
and did so, asking witness to mail it.
Holmes told witness he deposited $1000
of the insurance company's money with
Mr. Blackman, of Chicago, bia real es
tate agent, so "Mrs. Holmea" could
draw upon it.
The defense entered a formal objection
to all the evidence of Gerry concerning
Misa Yoke, but it was overruled.
BAKSEi STILL ARGUING.
Case to go
to the Jury
San Fbascisco, Oct. 31. District At
torney Barnes this morning resumed hia
argument on behalf of the prosecution in
the trial of Theodore Durrant. He at
tacked the methods of the defense in the
cross-examination of Mrs. Crosset and
Mrs. Noble. A fictitious strap was
shown to one and deceptive questions
asked of the other. While he said he
despised such methods, he said the pros
ecution had been strengthened by them
aa .the witnessess had not been entrap
ped. So far as Martin Quinlan'e testi
mony and his character were concerned,
Barnes said he contended both were
good. He said Qninlan told his Btory
before either Mra. Leak or Mrs. Crosset
were heard of. Qainlan's teatimony waa
Highest of all in Leavening Power.
corroborated by the statements of both
Barnes compared Durrant with other
notorious criminals of both ancient and
modern times. As compared with Dur
rant, Barnea said Cain was a mild and
peaceable citizen; Professor Web8ter,
the Harvard instructor, who murdered
Dr. Parkman, was a George Washington
of murderers, and Holmes, the multi
murderer, who is now on trial in Phila
delphia, ia a gentleman and scholar.
When the court took a recess until 2
o'clock Barnea informed the court that
he would probably close bis argument
at about 4. The court then asked the
jurors whether they preferred to be
charged at once and retire to make up a
verdict, or be charged tomorrow morn
ing. Juror Truman arose and said the ques
tion had been considered dv the jury,
and the members decided , they would
rather not be charged until tomorrow
morning. As the judge's charge is quite
lengthy, it is not expected that the jury
will retire before tomorrow noon.
