THE HAYES TRIAL.
The court room was even more
densely crowded yesterday than tho
day before by thoao who watched the j
progress of the trial of Jos. Hays for
the alleged murder of E. D. Raker,
which has occupied the attention of
the court since Wednesday morning.
In continuanco of tho prosecution
yesterday morning E. Thompson, H.
McCormack and .T. Johnson, were
placed on the witness stand and at
the conclusion of their testimony
court adjourned to 1 v. M.
Upon reassembling, the following
witnesses were called by counsel for
defendant: Drs. Baker and Fulton, T.
Wallace, Geo. Hill and Peter Hall,
whereupon defence rested and the
case wont to the jury, no rebutting
testimony having been offered. F.
D. Winton opened for the prosecution,
and in an exposition of the case on
behalf of the state claimed that the
testimony showed a deliberate and
successful attempt on the part of the
defendant Hayes to murder; that
more particularly the evidence of
Chas. Radmeyer and Hattie Marks
pointed to him as the man who com
mitted the murder, and ihat justice
demanded a verdict commensurate in
severity with the magnitude of the
crime committed: he was followed by
F. R. Strong for be defense, who com
menting on the testimony offered and
the circumstances under which the
crime was alleged to have occurred,
claimed that the testimony adduced
by the prosecution was not sufficiently
strong to justify a verdict of condem
nation, and that under no considera
tion could a final penalty of right at
tach to the punishment of the crime
said to have been committed.
He was followed by C. W. Fulton
who went at length into the history of
the affair and the circumstances which
had preceded it, and in review of the
testimony, and the motives ascribed to
defendant argued that those motives
did not exist in fact and tnat a strict
interpretation of the testimony must
of necessity result in acquittal; that
though it was without doubt a murder
had been committed, yet all that had
been brought forward by tho prosecu
tion had failed to substantiate tho as
sertion of the defendants guilt.
District Attorney McBridc closed
for the state and in answer to preced
ing counsel spoke of tho nocessity of
impartial justice and the protection
demanded by society; ho took up the
testimony of the different witnesses
and in comment argued that it was
most direct and conclusive and fur
nished abundant proof that the defen
dant was guilty, and that a verdict to
that effect should be rendered by the
At six o'clock tho judge made the
usual charge to tho jury who retired to
their room to consult as to their ver
Ybout half-past ton the jury sent
word that they had agreed. The
court was sent for. and presently
tho several officers came in one by one.
The sheriff brought in the prisoner,
and at eleven o clock counsel beinir
present the jury filed in. Judge
Bennett asked the foreman if they had
agreed upon a verdict and being an
swered in the affirmative asked for the
verdict which was handed him. The
verdict was "Not guilty"
Just how the pitching and rolling
of a shin acts on the human frame so
to produce the physical and mental
prostration of seasickness is a matter
of dispute. A ihcorv recentlv started
by Dr. Irwin, an English physician,
attributes it to tho disturbance of the
fluids in the semicircular canals of the
ear. it is generally recognized that
irritation of any kind in these passages
produces nausea and vomiting. Dr.
Chapman, on the other hand sees the
main proximate cause of this disorder
the presence of an undue amount
of blood in the spinal nervous centres,
which rendera the nerves proceeding
from them active, with the result of
disturbing the action of the organs
especially the stomach whose move
ments they regulate. Another new
writer on the subject, Dr. Carpenter,
inclined to ittribute seasickness to
the continued action of the brain of a
certain set of sensations, more particu
larly that of the want of support.
Nothing in more disagreeable than the
feeling consequent ou the sudden
giving wa of a prop on which
one is leauing, and the repeti
tion of this sensation every
time the vessel makes its downward
movement is supposed to produce the
nervous derangement which manifests
itself in seasickness. Dr. Ellis writes
to the Lancet that he found a complete
remedy in carefully attending to the
motion of tho vessel, and accompany
ing in his mind, even by a slight
stooping or pressing downward of the
body the sinking down of the vessel's
deck. Another medical correspondent
stales that he found relief by watching
the motion of the vessel, and, as she
was about to descend, making an ef
fort as though to force her down. The
Philadelphia Continent says that the
pplication of a light belt round the
lower part of the abdomen mitigates
the shocks to which, in a rough sea,
the nervous system is subjected. The
late Dr. George Beard's remedy was
bromide of sodium, taken three times
day a few days before embarking,

A San Francisco dispatch says the

General Sherman and party reach
Victoria on the 20th mst. and no at

the 23d. From Victoria to Tacoma
the party will have a special steamer,
stopping over to visit Fort Townsend

Fianders' wharf was last night
the scene of a daring highway robbery.
About midnight James Gallatley, tho
first officer of the ship Iiossdhu, then
lying at the foot of Washington "street,
was going along Flanders' dock when
he was set upon by two villainous
scoundrels, who struck him with a
slung shot, knocked him off the upper
dock to the landing, aoout ten feet
below, and following, robbed him of
his watch and three or four dollars in
money. In the fall, Galletley's left
leg below tho knee was broken in two
places. He was sens to the Marino
hospital. Standard, 1G.
The fact that codfish in appar-
ntly large numbers have been found
off the Oregon coast at various times
has led to a project on the part of
some ot our Astoria cannervmen to
establish a cou usliery, and arrange
ments are now in progress with tho
intention of seeing what can be done
the matter. This valuable salt
water fish has been met with off the
Coquille coast, and is said to be found
a3 far north as Tillamook rock. If so,
and the fish comes in such prodigons
quantities as is alleged, there will bo
nothing to prevent the establishment
of a Pacific coast cod fishery, with
headquarters at Astoria.
