It was also prored that he had lo wade ; across a slough in going from the river and that he was not wet above the waiat j nor was the child wet; that the boat which he crossed the river in was not ' sunk but was safely landed ou the north ids, and that it belonged to one Pearce Ransom wbo found in it a stick which he saw Jones wttb on . th$ cd$y he ! alleged drowBteg; tha traek;of a man and woman were BeextrwHar this boat landed and followed upto an un- j occupied house a few hundred yards from the river and back to the river j blow where the boat was landed ; that signs of a violent scuffle were to be seen I on the banks of the river; that Jones j whan asked to give the particulars of the drowning stated that his boat began to sink on the opposite side of the river anc? -64 "or V yards belaw where this soQfSa occurred; that the body was found aboua-twenry-five or thirty yards below where the scuffle was and on the same side of the river; that there were thirteen imprints of a thumb nail on her throat. It was also proven by Dr. R. O. Cobb, who made the poet mortem examination, that, in his opinion, death was produced by choking, and that the body was in an unconscious state before Doing thrown into the river. The above is a synopsis of the evi dence upon which the State rested its case when the court adjourned to nine o'clock Thursday morning. SECOND DAY.

The defence offered no evidence, resting the case on that already intro- duced for the State. THE BABY IN COURT. The little child who was claimed to bare made the perilous passage across the river the day of its mother's death, was regularly in attendance during the week, in the arm a of its grandmother. It frequently reminded the vast assem bly of its presence either by its innocent prattle or wail of discontent at the un- usual eurrountiine to whicli ubjecte 1.

The circumetances and evidence were ably reviewed ,and an earnest appeal made for the unfortunate prisoner Geo H. White, State's attorney, then opened for the prosecution. He re echoed the language of th9 gentleman who had just addressed the jury, that they had a grave responsibility resting upon them. The law must be respected ; the jury did not make thoeo laws and were not responsible for them. Ho ran over the evidence and argued that the cirnumstanops ax dtailrtl before the to ; , j u? manDer and erj. j p0 argument for the defense was resumed by W. "V. Clark, Esq. Mr. Clark opened with the assurance to the jury that what he might say in beba!f of the prisoner would be the last words submitted to them by any one for him, and he felt the responsibility the greater. For him8elr and the lury he invoked tho ; direction of God Aim ig ghty who alone was able to guide them to a correct con clusion, Mr. Clark with much ingen uity raised the hypotheses of murder in the second degree; or willful drowning by the deceased, who after crossduR the river, and going up to the untenanted house, had resolved to go no further and returned to the river with the intent of going back to her father. In the effort of Jones to prevent her. a scuffle eneued and he may have unin tentionally choked her to death.

These hypothe- see, it was ably contended were more reasonable than that of premeditated mnTAT . hv thn imMscnHnn. His Honor then charged the jury in clear and comprehensive terms, re- o.nitntin7 with irront. carpf n 1 n pss t h e evidence in the case which was for the benefit of the jurv. The eridrafo, His Honor stated, made either a case of" murder or nothing. The jury took the case at about 2 o'clock, and the verdict '.'"' "We have. " said the spokes man. Mr, F. Boesser. "What do you find V" "Guilty, said the spokesman. The roll was again called, when each i juror responded, gunty. The prisoner received the verdict with comparative composure, making no visible display of emotion further than that state of agitation plainly per ceptible throughout the proceedings of the morning. Counsel for the defense made a mo tion for a new trial, which will proba bly be argued this morning. The prisoner was remanded to jail. A paper addressed to Judge Shipp by the foreman of the grand jury, setting forth that witnesses and jurors at this term of the court were not receiving the cash for their tickets, was then read by 11. K. Bvran, Ks.:.. at request r vo rrr Mr. Jan. A.

The threat three , mile race between Ilanlan and (iaudaur occurred at the Calumet cour?e today for the championship cf America and S5.000 to iHakpp. A slight ruu;;huei- of the water had no deterring in il ueiK-e. and the start was made with prompt ness. Hanlan wa. at once a tri!! in the lead, pulling a short nuiek ctr..l; . i'2 to the minute. Gaudaur kept i l.e to him with a long, steady sweep, about f) to the minute. Gradually Ilanlan forged ahead, and at the etd of the first mile was fully a boat length in ad vance. It had been the go?sij- that if Ilanlan could lead to the turn he was nearly a certain winner, but if Gaudaur reached the buoy tirst Ilanlan would never catch up on a stern chate. Great, therefore, were the expectation? of Ilanlan 'd friends to see him nc irintr th turn clearly ahead of Gaudaur and gaining all the time. The rain now be gan to fall. The lake was soon lumpy from end to end. and the downpour was almost blinding. Hanlan turned first, two lengths ahead; time, 10.02. He was pulling about 05 strokes a min ute at this point, and rounding to Gaudaur struck about the same gait. Hanlan stopped an instant here for some purpose, but did not lose the lead. He , kept well to the front from the start until entering the third mile. There Hanlan commenced to Hag. So uneven did his stroke become, and so great an effort did it seem to require, that many ucnctou uin uvat tvao ituuiu ui 11.11.1 shipped one of the choppy seas. Gaudaur was rowing magnificently. He showed the long, steady sweep he had taken at tne outset, Dut taster. w ltn machine-like precision he passed the straggling Hanlan. A boat's length of water between them could be seen, then another, and at last one more. "'Hanlen's beaten,'" murmured the crowd. "No, no,"' shouted others . "bee him spurt: see him spurt. " And spurt Hanlan did with vengeance The mul titudes on shore and atloat held their breath, then, regardless of rain, tossed I nat8 and umbrellas in the air and started f to yell like Comanches. The cheers d ied on their lips. Hanlan could not stand the pace, and again Gaudaur's ! great sweep began to tell . It was then that riaiilan lav back ju. t ar ir.Rtfint. and, turning hia. face from the rain, shot a glance over his shoulder at Gaudaur. The single glance wa? enough. Hanlan saw himself irretriev ably beaten. Gaudaur was six lengths to the fore. Seeing Hanlan surrender all hope. Gaudaur magnanimously slackened the speed and passed the stand an easy winner by four lengths Time, 19 ao. It was a fine performance under the adverse conditions. Hanlan was seen by an Associated , Press reporter immediately after the , race and asked what he thought of the result. "I do not think the best man won. " paid Ilanlan. "'thouih I acknowl edge I was fairly beaten."' Questioned how that could be, the ex champion grew taciturn and would only say that ho did not wish to make any excuses. Persistent queries, however, brought Out the statement from Hanlan that he had not been in the best condition. "I have been suffering from a cold." he said, "and it told on me exactly when I most wanted it not to." In sharp contrast to the glum appearance of Hanlan was the cheery, sun-browned face of Gaudaur. "That was the hard est race I ever rowed." said he. "T just had to do my level best." he said, ' and I did it." The reference of the 1 race was Hanlan's choice Hamilton Busbv. of New York. Hanlan gets forty per cent, of S3. -"00. the total gate ' receipts. The time .19:30) was this evening de clared official. Gaudaur, therefore. i broke the record, the best previous time : being his own against Teenier over the same course 19.54. Hanlan. though beaten, not only : forced Gaudaur to break all record-, but also broke them himself. Hanlan "s ' time, according to tho official record, was 19 34. His backer. Peter Duryes. taking courage from this fact stated j toniKht that he would send Hanlan to Australia to beat Beach, and then re turn to again attempt the defeat of ' Gaudaur. Mr. Duryea attributes Hanlan 'o de feat mainly to the fact that his boat was unfitted for rough water, while Gau daur's was peculiarly adapted to it. Hanlan also inclined to this view later. ard brightened up noticeably after it i was auiiounceu ;ia certain mat ne nao surpassed record . th world' be: previous NEWS NOTE -. Vv'al.
