fwus 116 pounds This was considered
a triumph for tho prosecution as show-
PliiK that buoIi a light weight could dp
easily carried or dragged up the belfry
f-by Durraut. Tho defense had tried to
ishow her weight wos one hunred and
forty pounds. Henry B. Hulmount, n
codductir on the Bummor ettcetcarp,
testified that on April 3rd, Durrant

With tho Great San Francisco
Haul Led Ulanclio Lnmont Astray
Herman J. fechlager, medical student
and classmate of Durraut, testified that
he knew Durrant well. He had seen
blm on tho morning of April 3.
Ho win accompanied by Blanche
Lnmont. He had frequently seen them
together. Afterward Durrant asked
wltuees If ho remembered meeting him
with Blanche on that day. Durrant
said at that tlmo that Blanche had
disappeared and he (Durrant) feured
that she had gone into a house of ill
fume. Durraut had remarked that
Blanche was a decent girl and that ho
led her astray.
Ban Francisco, Bopt. 12. Maud
Lauiout told about Durrani's atten
tions to her and her sister, corroborat
ing her aunt's testlmouy on that point.
Maud positively Identified the ring
with tho chip diamond as hers. She
said she had exobanged with Blancho,
each wearlug tho other's ring. This
was ono ot tho rings returned to Mrs.
Noble wrapped In a newspapor, on tho
edge of which was printed the names
of George King, tho church organist,
and Professor Bchernstelu, an elderly
muslo toaolnr. This same ring wos
positively Identified at tho preliminary
examination by a second hand dealer
named Oppenhelm as ouo oflered to
him for salo by Durrant after Blanche
disappeared. Tho witness identified

Maud is a rosy cheeked girl, with
auburn hair, and neat figure, dressed
in deepest black. Bbe testified1 that
Blanche was born in Rookfdrd, 111,
Thence tho fmlly went to Dillon,
Mont. Maud carao to Ban Francisco
in June, 1804, Blancho in the following
September. Blancho was 21 years of
ago ot tho tlmo of her dlssapearanco.
The witness Is 20. Bho further testi
fied thut Durraut wan a prominent
member of tho Christian Endeavor
Society, at which meetings she und
Blancho frequently met Durrnnt. Tho
prisoner often escorted tho sisters home
from tno meetings. Two days afcr
Blancho disappeared, Durrant came to
tho house at 8:15and asked for Blanche.
Witness, seeking to hldo the fact of a
elstor't itbsonce, told Durraut Blanoho
always left for school at 8:30. Durrant
said he had a book for Blauche. He
Itft a cop? of "Tho Newcomes" for her.
Police Cuptatn Lees Waited anx
iously In his .office until a late hour
histl ulgut, hoping that ho would
fecelvo n telegram of great importance
in tho Durraut oase. Tho chief of
dotcctlveb expected either the confir
mation of denial of a story which, if
true, will add another lino In the chain
which blnilj Durraut. What he
expected Captain Lees would not toll,
but a telegram received from Dowule
vlllo at a lato houruxplulus his auxlety.
At Downlevillenuother witness has
beeu found who will be lioro to testify
whon ho Is needed. It Is claimed that
John Curran, of tho Mountain nous,
in Blerru county, was on Market street
in this city, on tho afternoon of April
3, uud saw Blancho Lament and Dur
rant on a Market street car golug wett,
If this be true tho prosecatlou has
secured another witness of tho 'greatest
Iu the clrcunntiutlal eyldonco pre
sented by tho prosecution thero is a
gap whloh may or may not bo of
moment In tho cbbb. Four witnesses
whoso character it will bo out of tho
question to Impeach, will swear they
saw Durrant and Blauoho Ltuiont
take a Powell street cr going ttward
Market street. Another witness will
swear he saw tho younj couple on
B irtlett and rwenty-secoud streets that
afternoon, and still auother, keen-oyed
and alert, will testify that ho saw the
tho young student luro his victim Into
tho church. From this fund of facts
tho atato has arranged Its proof, and
has planned tho dramtlo story of tho
day of the murder. In that story -the
testimony of a new witness, Herman
Bchlager, Jr., a classmate of Durrant,
will bo given as one of the flrtt nlgnlfi.
No one will doubt the rellabllltv of
his Identification of Durraut, whom
he knew fram daily association at
Cooper college. Bchlager took a Butter
street car on the morning of April 3.
When tho car stopped at Ninth and
Mission Bchlager wa? surprised to tee
Durrant accompanied by a ycung
ludy get into the car. It seemid
strange to the youug student that his
frieud Durrant gave him no look of reo
ognltiou, but that might be very read
ily explained, Courtesy Is uot ono of
the shining attributes in Durrani's
character, and there is no reason to
bellevo, from what subsequonty hap
pened, that he did not want to be seen.
Bchlager Jumpedoft as the car neared
Butter street. He did not observo them
wheu they left the car at the Lowel
high flchool. Tbe most significant part
of his testimony in his reference to his
ride out to Sutter utreet Is hit sworn
statement that Durrant did sot leave
the car at Webeter street. Had he done
so Bchlager would have seen him, even
if he did not walk with him to the

tho prosecution can prove Just what

was ..murdered. j( eeoma renurkablo
that foh a fn.ct should be suscpptlblo

stress upon the faut
that this was not
loft a loophole to throw into the oa-o a
powerful mauofutijedtahllshi'd Identity,
perhaps two merjaboth of whom wore
at work upou the'ithroat of the girl at
once. Little thlngji asuime a vital Im

Mrs. Noble and of Mind Luinnt,
weighed nianohe Limout aud found
that tho sctlos tlppod at 121 pounds.
Charlton kept a grooory lu tho Mission
at that tlmo. HI Btoro was near the
Noblo home, and on tho day mention
ed Blanoho Lnmont wits weighed. It
Is thus ostabllahedlthat fully robed, she
wolghed 121 pouuds.
This will play an Important part In
tho prosecution. Au ordinary man
could throw suoh a weight over his
shoulder and mount the stops of. the
bolfry with saso.
