Witnesses Declare They Saw
Twin Babies; Defendant
Is Disturbed
HAMMOND. Ind.. Oct. 19.
Frank McNally. middle-aged fac
tory woricer, wno accuses ms
wife of murdering twin babies he
says were bord to her last De
cember, asserted at the prelimin
ary' bearing today that Mrs: Mc-
Nally took the children to. a hos
pital in Chicago last , January and
returned with two dolls which she
substituted for the babies;
Mrs. McNally, who claims that
the twins never were born and
that she hoodwinked her husband
and neighbors by using dolls ! In
order to satisfy her husband's
ambition to be known as a father,
was unperturbed by her husband's
Date of Birth Named
McNally testified the twins
were born December last, as
serted that he had seen them and
that they were alive.
Miss Catherine Griffiths, 17-
year-old daughter of the nurse
who attended Mrs. McNally was
an important state witness today
She said she learned Mrs. McNally
was to become a mother when
she accompanied her to a bath
ing beach in the summer of 1921.
She asserted that after the time
McNally says the twins were born,
she had seen the babies in bed,
alive and kicking and also saw
one of the babies nursing. ,
Merrit Methz an acquaintance
of the McNally's, said he had seen
Mrs. McNally early last Decern
ber and that she was approaching
Test imony 1 1 amis Woman
Mrs. Anna Hartman, a neigh
bor of Mrs. McNally, also testi
fied she had seen Mrs. McNally
in December and that she was
soon to become a mother.
It was expected that when Mc
Nally concludes his testimony to
morrow, the midwife who McNal
ly says attended his wife when
the twins were born, would i be
put on the stand,, possibly as the
last witness for the state. Mrs.
McNally, who appears to consider
the affair lightly, was expected
to be among the first witnesses
for the defense.

tonight and invited him to form

Bonar Law will undertake, Al
though the state of his health,
which compelled him to withdraw
from public life a few months ago,
makes it a risky venture.

Rsfor Mr. Bonar Law can
formally accept the premiership,
however, & meeting of the Union

Between the Carlton club meet
ing and Bonar Law's . visit to the
king, it was a seethipg afternoon
of rumor and of group gather

had. resigned - and t within ' twe
hours Mr. Lloyd George was in
possession of the resignations of
practically aH the members of the,
cabinet,. He then drove to the
palace to tender them to the king.;
Ousted Prnnier Cheerful
Mr. Lloyd George advised the
king to summon Mr. Bonar Law,
and, according to custom, this
was done. While Mr. Lloyd George
exhibited cheerfulness to the few
who saw. him and cheered him on
his journey to the palace be could
not but feel deeply . the verdict
that he no longer commanded the
support of the majority of the Un
ionist party, which for the past
few months had furnished the
strongest material for his cabinet.
It was. Mr. Bonar LaW, more
than any other 1 man who Infltt
enced the Unionist caucus to se
cede from the coalition. He bad
been a sphinx whom the rank and
file of the Unionist commoners
were waiting to hear. He Is a ser

so a strong feeling In the party

Newport Election Last Straw 4
The last straw weighed in the
scale was the Newport election, in.
which a straight Unionist candi
date, won on a platform of opposi
tion to the coalition and all its
works, although the politicians
thought tbe labor party had a
safe. prospect, in that constituency. :
Mr.' Bonar Law will have Lord
Curzon for one ot the pillars of
his cabinet. Curzon remained
away from the caucus today, but
sent a letter of protest . against
the exclusion of the Jords. I .
One result of today's upheaval
is a split In tbe Unionist party '
which makes its fortunes doubt

cabinet unionists remain trtie to
their leader. M,r. .Chamberlain,
