The party-stayed at the hou.-e until about 1 a. ni MBS FKAKK KIBBEY. At this point Mrs. Frank C. Kibbey was put upou the stand. She was attired in the must sombre hues and wore a long black veil. She was trembling considerably. Her appearance was very distressful, her face pale and emaciated. The first material question, "How long havo yen and Frank Kibbey been married," was objected to by th prs edition, and the balance of the are-noon occupied in discussing the point. After the noon recess, the witness was allowed to testify. f s Mrs. F. C. Kibbey testified that she was married to the clefeudaat in December, 1885. On Monday or Tuesday morning previous to the shooting, (which took place on Friday, June 2-lth,) while at Phenix, she received a telegram from her hu.-haud calling her baGk to Florence She replied that she coald not leave until morning. At about 9 in the morning of Thursday the 23d F. C. Kibbey arrived iu Phenix. He wanted to know what happened 011 the dav of the picnie. to which his i replied that nothing had occurred and crank expressed himself as caused with her statement. Kibbey asked if she had written to Farter. She denied having written Porter a n te. Frank then produced a note which she had written to Porter and anki that he had found it at home. She had written two notes, but sent only one. One was then ia her husband's possession and by his wish, was destroyed. The note was one warning Porter that her husband was trying t.. get to have a talk with him. She cenlassed to her husband that Porter "hnd been everything to her. That he had been criminally in X timsle with her ou several occasions. Kiubey said to her, "Oh, den't tell me that. Don't, tell me anvthin more about it.' her l3ter. but He wan: hi wife i ed to tell iked 1 1 i 1 11 it't. to. Thea he f.biained peniiiv-f-ioti io tell "J e" (Jtidg KibWy), i'is brother. Kilsbey thea went to Sown mid tint a telegram to the J'ldgo at Florence, asking him- to .e-fvi his trip to I'rescott -iiitil ho coul.I rearh Florence. About 3 p. id. Kibbey returned to tiie huiite. Nothing further was fiiid on the mbjert. He went down town and returned Inter, and utiiggered as he stepped lip on the porch. Che had never seen hmi druuk before. She bur.-t out crying and said; "Oh Frank! I have cau-ed all this trouble," or similar words. He replied; "Lou, I feel so sorry f .r you. I would !o aaylhiag for you." They started for Florence by private eomeyanceat about 8 in the evea;nf. On the way she detailed to her hns-ban 1 l!ie particulate of the intimacy. The detuiij of thalivouverfatinH were too many llnd too long for her to rec-ellect on the stand. But the reuieaa- bernl tha times of iqtimacy, tr.d had repeated them to her husband. The first time was the 25th (if May, whiie Kibbey was in Tue-on. Another the 4tU of June Twica, al so, during Kibbey's absence m fata Grande, on the 9ih or 10th or perhaps n the 10th and 11th, She told him that Porter had been coming t the house for a long time. That, morning he emie arouud at about 9 o'clock. She had not yet eaten breakfast. He conversed in a more familiar strain than usuaL She begged him u t to talk so A parley of words naturally ensued, which need net be quoted. Porter stayed at (bo the bouse on this occasion until 1 o'clock in tho afternoon. The testimony at this point was given ia an alaso-t inaudible tone by the witness, twho was overcome with grief. Her head wss bowd and she s'epped at the end of each seuteuce as if choked with emoti n. Fi r obvi ui-reasons the bulk of this part of Mrs. Kibbey's testimony is he-e omitted. In conelasi - n she testified that Porter made a prombe that he would not dirclose the fact of her intimacy and said that he would keep the promise for ail eternity. That he sl-sv promised that if anytluaj should happen he would aland by her. She and her hurband arrived in Florence at about 8 Fiiday moroiug and wen' home.

In the course of conver-ation ha a.-ked. "what shall we do?" She replied that she was perfectly willing to die, and he suggested that, ti.ai. rrow, if she felt so, they would both die. Then he took an -ther bath aud again dressed. Frank Kibbey went out again and returned, teeming re-tless. "I can't slay here 1. ng," was i. remark made te her Then he went away ajid got a girl to stay with his wife. At about 6 in the' evening Kibbey left the h .use, saying he would be back in a few minutes. The Judge called, soon after, and asked lor Frank. He said, "1 ciime to say good bye." (It seems he wss g.ing to Prescott.) fhc replied4 "Geod-bye, Joe, this is the last time I will see you." He answered, "Oh, I hope not!"
