I accept- .ed the case withoutmaldng inquiries as to the details and particulars. Just before the trial I looked into the case, and it rertaiiily did seem almost hopeless for Kllis. I could, imd no plea on which to defend him. The community were prejudiced against him, and some of my best friends said that I ought not to defend him. But that made no difference to me.

My plan of defense was simple. 1 intended to prepud.ee H,e judge and jury aga.inst the witness. HI could do that 1 could save my client. Otherwise he must hang. There was another witness who was afflicted with Me, habit of stuttering. When excited ho could not utter » word. I had no wet- nesses for the defense, ana concluded to clear my man with the witness for he prosecution. There had been a row o" the mountain side, and the evidence showed that Ellis had murdered O'Brien without provocation, save that the dead man had claimed prior right to the mine which Kills had taken possession, of and which he declared his intention ,o' defend.

"Then the other witness was stiro- . moned. He was excited with the ordeaJ of his predecessor, aad I saw that he could'-scarcely-stutter, ranch less talk. I went right at him and said: 'You saw the man O'Brien raise a shovel to brain I-'llis You saw the defendant try to rim away from him. You saw O'Brien rush after Ellis to the edge of the pit. Your own eyes witnessed the fact that Ellis only drew his gun and fired in B elf-defense. Now tell the jury the truth withontquibbliiig, without eouiv- • ocntiou or hesitation.' "The poor fellow began to stutter and stuminer. I went after him nnd demanded a -prompt answer without any mental reservation or time for consideration. Tba jury did not know that h- was a stutterer. They saw before them a man who was struck almost speechless when confronted with a de- tennintd attorney. 'The poor fellow tried in vain to deny the story. He could uot otter a word. He refused. to leave the witness stand. He tried to say that he wu» a stutterer, but his toii'nic wobbled all over both of his cheeks. He was flr.iUly ordered off the stand by the judge, and my case was won. The jury beJieved that Ellis was innocent.
