DIETRICH. THE TRIAL OP ANDREW SNYDER'S SLAYER BEGUN. The Story of a Drunken Killing at the Cape Horn Saloon Last October-The State's Damaging Evidence Against Him. The trial of George Dietrich for murder begun yesterday morning before Judge Cheney and a jury of the following gentlemen: L. Pulaski, P. C. Peterson, M. P. Groove, John Condra, J. II. Birch,. Charles Helmer, C. II. Humphreys, Charles A. Young, L. C, Mason, A. Valla, J. N. Moore, II. D. McDonald. The Information recites that the defendant did willfully, unlawfully, maliciously, feloniously and with mal-. ice aforethought kill one Andrew Snyder on the 22d day of October, 188(J, in the Cape Horn saloon of this city. The Judge, after having the information read, announcarl the case was in the hands of the people. District Attorney Patton then explained to the jury the diagram of the scene of the alleged crime, with the circumstances auu Lacta wic otatc numu abtvuij'u tu prove, and which will appear in the testimony for the State. Peter Mueller sworn, testified: As to his name and residence, is a baker ly trado, but now owns a saloon, and owned the Cape Horn saloon last October. Knew Andrew Snyder; he was his brother-in-law. Snyder died October 22, 1886, in the house of the wit- I16S9. , Was present at the saloon on the evening of the 11th of October, 1886. Dietrich came into the place nearly every night. On the night in question they played four games of euchre, and then Dietrich Bhowed a big American dollar which, he said, had four "M's" on it. 'One of the boys put the dollar in his pocket. Witness shook dice with the defendant at 9 o'clock and went to bed across the street, from where he could see into the saloon. He went to bed and soon heard a big noise and looking out saw Dietrich standing in front of the bar throwing up his hands, calling Snyder all manner of names, lialf in German and half in English. ' Witness went down and seeing Dietrich asked him if he was crazy again, and pushed him out the door. Dietrich stood there threatening, and defying Snyder until the latter said he would go out to him if he did get a black eye. Snyder then went out . and they got together . and struggled this way and that way. Witness saw Dietrich have a knife and then Snyder hollered, "The dog has got 2i knife," and soon came into the saloon and said he was stabbed. They took liim and found him cut in six or seven places, and the bowels coming out of one wouad below the navel. . . It was a bright moonlight night. Welsh and Quinn were in front of the saloon when he went in. Dietrich was lying in live street wnere snyaer nau left him, and lay till the policeman took him. Cross-examination : Dietrich came to the saloon between 7 and 8 o'clock. Was in a pleasant mood. All three parties were on good terms. ' Dietrich had drank one whisky and some beer. Thought there was no trouble when witness left the saloon, but there had been some words. When witness re turned Snyder started out for Dietrich. He saw Snvder have no cluh or revolver. Tbey were about: twenty feet from the door when tney commenced to struggle. Saw Dietrich strike Snyder. Went out to see what the two were doing, when Snyder called, " He's got a big knife." Witness started to go to them, but Snyder came against him and said, "I believe I'm stabbed." - Did not see anything in Dietrich's hand. Quinn and Welsh stayed in the saloon. Did hot see Dietrich any more. Did not say he didn't care if he did have a fuss in his saloon, because he had a bartender who would lay them out with a club. Witness knew Dietrich a year and a half. Martin Welsh sworn: Lives in this city; is a bartender. Remembered the occurrence at the Horn saloon, October 11th. Went into the Horn saloon with a friend to take a drink at 9 or 10 o'clock. There were two gentlemen in. We" took two drinks, asked the barkeeper for good whisky. Dietrich spit into the bartender's whisky. Dietrich called Snyder bad names. Snyder had a club behind the bar and came out before the bar two or three times and witness persuaded him to go back. Snyder pulled a revolver two or three j . .. j t: ..t : ..u i- LiLUrs uil XJiviiivu auu wiwiesa jiei- suaded him to put it up. Mueller came , in, and had some words in German, then Mueller pushed Dietrich out the door.' Dietrich in German called bar? keeper a male descendant of a female dog. Snyder went out after defendant, who was" 150 feet away. Witness heard Snyder say Dietrich had a knife, and coming back to the saloon, saidi "I am stabbed," and pulling up his shirt, showed a cut in the abdomen from which the bowels were hanging, and-then -went back to the backroom. Saw Snyder have no weapon when he went out. No onelse about but Mueller while struggle was going on. Dietrich was laying on the ground as if he -was. hurt, after .Snyder came in. Couldn't tell what he said. Cross-examination: Snyder and Dietrich were not quarreling, till Dietrich spit in the whisky. Did not hear Snyder call Dietrich a hard name. They came together about fifty yards out. Did not see them striking each other. Did not think there would be trouble. The defendant would run outside of the door when Snyder came around the bar with a club. Defendant did not spit in Snyder's whisky by accident. Mr. Mueller came in and a iked the barkeeper what was the trouble. Snyder told him, and Mueller put Dietrich out. Snyder went out to light him very soon after. Dietrich ran till Snyder came to him. Dietrich was trying to get away. Reexamination: Snyder drew re volver before Mueller came in. Don't Know wnetner Dietrich turned on Snyder or not. They ran pretty fast. Snyder appeared the smarter man. James Quinn sworn: Testified to being in company with Martin Welsh, October 11th last. Dietrich and Snyder were talking when witness went in and asked for a drink. The two kept on talking, and Snyder filled up a glass for himself, which was spilled. Ear-keeper started around after Dietrich, LOS who ran out behind the horse-trough. Witness and Welsh interfered, and Snyder went back behind the bar. Saw Mueller come in the back door and ask what was the matter. Defendant and bar-keeper both spoke up, Dietrich coming into the room. Mueller put him out. Dietrich came back to the door, and Snyder took after him. Saw the two together. Witness was standing on the sidewalk when Snyder came back and said he was -wit. Saw the defendant 'lying, on street till policeman came. Cross-examination : Only Dietrich and Snyder were in when witness en tered. They were only talking. Saw defendant reach toward the third glass of whisky sitting on the bar. Don't know whether lie- dranK it or not. Didn't see him spit in it. Snyder and Dietrich each called the other hard names. Snyder was talking right along in uerman. Didn't see onyuer nave any weapon. When Snyder got out both ran, and the defendant was ahead. The defendant made kind of a stop. Didn't see either one striking the other. Saw a knife. It - wasn't either a very bright or a dark knire. Went to the door very soon after Snyder went. Muller went out first and started towards the men. Mr. Penning sworn, said he was a city constable in October last. Knows the defendant. Knew when Andrew Snyder died. Saw him the day before he died. Was present when the dying declaration of Snyder was taken. The document here presented witness recognized as the same. Snyder said he expected to die'since previous to taking the deposition, and was very weak at that time. Cross-examination : Said Snyder .had said he felt it was impossible for him to recover. Said Dr. Kuhrts had suggested taking a dying declaration and the witness carried out the suggestion. Dr. Kuhrts sworn: Said he knew Snvder. attended him in his last illness. He is dead. He died in consequence of an injury .inflicted upon him by means of some sharp instrument from which protuded a very large loop of bowels. Pound him on the night of October 11th, and found him as described. When I arrived the patient was in a very low condition. 1 enlarged the opening, returned the bowels, sewed up the place and put him to bed. He did well for nve or six days, but wnen nis Doweis began to move he began to fail. The explanation is that the constipated condition of the bowels kept the liquid contents from entering the abdominal cavity. At the post-mortem examlna-ation we found, what I had suspected, a perforation in the bowels from which had issued purient matter and filled the entire cavity. There were several cuts, evidently from a knife. Cross-examination: Was called in an hour or two after the injury. The treatment given before the .arrival of witness was proper. Found no cut in the bowels at the time of dressing the wound. Mr. Jov sworn: Said he was Deputy District Attorney. Knew Andrew Snyder. The paper then presented to witness was recognized as that read and sworn to by Snyder. Adjourned till 10 o'clock this morn' ing. - ; HEADQUARTERS. Gen. Miles'g Latest Batch of Army Orders.; .

CATARRH CONSUMPTION, ASTHMA and BRONCHITIS, ' Treated specially and successfully by W. N. DAVIS, M.D., 15K N. SPRING STREET, ' t Los Angeles, : : ; California. MEDICAL INHALATION COMBINED WITH CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDIES.. , My treatment of the diseases of the respiratory pabsnges consists in the employment of Motlioal Inhalation, for its direct effects on the diseased organs; and, at the same time, adopting such hygienic measures, and administering such medicines by the Btomacii as will most effectually purify the blood, give tone to the nervous system, and build up and strengthen the general constitution. In.other words, I employ combined local and general treatment. What is Medical Inhalation ' Before stating briefly what Medical Inhalation Is. I propose. In as few words as possible, to state clearly what it Is not. - Medical Inhalation is not a cure-all, a nostrum, or a panacea. It is not a Specific Remedy for any disease. - It is not a quack medicine, advertised to cure any or all the ills that tiesh is heir to, and intended to fill tne pockets of its proprietors. It is not a talisman, whose possession insures health to its possessor without the intervention ot either sense or judgment. Medical Inhalation is none ol these things. - , Medical Inhalation is simply and solely a method of taking medicines by inhaling or breathing them into the lungs, instead of swallowing them Into the stomach. By Inhalation, the proper medicines are applied directly to tho seat of the disease, in the nose, throat or lungs; and it is clear to every reasoning person how' peculiarly applicable Inhalation is in the disorders of the organs named. If you have scalded or burned the surface of the body, or wounded any limb or member, you do not swallow the remedy Intended to heal tho disorganized tissue On the , contrary, you aprtly it directly to the seat of the wound or injury. . Why, then, when suffering, lrom catarrr of the nasal passages or throat, or afflicted with ulceration of the lungs, should you rely on medicines taken into the stomach? Medical inhalation not only applies the proper healing remedies to the seat of the disease, but it applies the remedy in the gaseous or vaporous form, in which form, as is well known, medicines act most powerfully. How much greater, for example, Is the effect of a drachm of chloroform, when Inhaled or breathed, than many times the quantity when swallowed into the Btomach. The same is true of chlorine, of iodine, and of many other substances. By inhalation toe medicine is not poured into the stomach, and thence sent wandering through the system in search of a malady, which may be mainly or. entirely a local one; but by this method the proper remedy is applied directly to the- diseased organ. Who, after studying the anatomy of the lungs, can doubt that In inflammation and ulceration of the air-tubes and air-cells, the direct application of the healing medicine by inhalation to the-diseased parts, is the correct and rational method of treatment? Who. on the other band, can be so irrational as to believe that the proper and direct way to reach the diseased surfaces of the air-passages, in this case, is by the' way of the stomach? Physiology teaches us that the membrane, or skin, liniug the air-passages of the nose, throat and lungs, is only a slightly modified form of the same structure as that which covers the external surface of the body. Why, then, should local treatment be proper and necessary for inflammations, congestions and ulcerations of the one and not be equally so in the case of the other? My experience and success in treating diseases of the nose, throat and lungs, demonstrates, beyond all question, that the true scientific treatment of these diseases Is that treatment which combines the local effects of medical inhalation with the constitutional effects of systemic remedies, given in the usual way by the stomach. One or both methods must be adopted as the circumstances demand, and such remedies must be employed as the experience and judgment of the physician have proved to be proper in each particular ease. . ,. . . MEDICAL ADVOCATES, OF INHALATION. Physicians who were educated twenty years ago or more, and who have not kept up with the times in the advance In medical science, have very little idea of the great importance all leading mediqal writers now give to Medical Inhalation in the treatment of pulmonary diseases. To such an extent is this true that no patient should intrust his case to any physician who is not well prepared and thoroughly equipped with everything necessary for the administering of the proper remedies by the method of Inhalation. - - The numerous cures effeoted by Inhalation in cases seemingly past all help, and the uniform success attending its use in diseases of the respiratory organs, renders it obligatory on every honeBt physician to at once apply himself to gain a practical knowledge of the Initiation, or, if that is not possible, he is at least bound to decline to treat such cases. Among the most eminent physicians of the age who are fully awakened to the value of Medical Inhalation in these diseases are the following: The celebrated Dr. Burdon-Saun-derson; Dr. La Roche, of the Paris Academy of Medicine; Dr. Frederick Langhaus, of Berlin; Drs. Klebs and Tommasi-Crudeli; Sir Archibald Dickson, of Edinburgh, Scotland; Dr. Eichlerj Dr. Cameron, Dr. Gurdon Buck, Prof. Albert Lehert, the celebrated Dr. Hughllngs Jackson, the venerable Dr. Robert Dickinson, Prof. Thierfelder, 8pencer Wells, Dr. Hilton Flagge,Dr. G P. Wood. Drs. Fritsch and Hitzig, Dr. Fnthergill, Dr. Richard Thompson. Dr. R, 8. Carpenter, Drs. Anstie, Ball, Fuller, Lancereaux, Krauss, Huguenfe.'Heller, Orth, Corrigan, Fenwick and many others. With arcely a single exception every medical authority of eminence recognizes the wonderful potency of this new method, and the coming veneration of physicians aro certain to be thoroughly educated therein. At present it s only a few physicians here and there who have made "Diseases of Respiration" a life study that are fitted in any way to employ the wonderful resources of Medical Inhalation in the cure of these diseases. --- THE CURABILITY OF CONSUMPTION. , For five years the celebrated Dr. I. H. Ben-net was pathologist to the Royal Inflrmary of Edinburgh, and in his great work on "Consumption" he makes the following statement: "During this period I made upwards of 2000 post-mortem examinations of persons dying from various diseases, and I was constantly meeting with cases in which I found cavities in the lungs from consumption, which bad evidently healed up or cicatrized years before the death of the subject. Nature did not seem to ha ve been successful In restoring the wasted lung-substance, but the cavities were dried up, the progress of the disease arrested, and the subject lived for years, with diminished lung power it is true, but otherwise in good health.
