Keesling's (4) From the additional venire of forty names a jury to try the case of the State of Indiana vs. Charles U. .Klein who is charged with the murder of John Gibbs on the 16th of January last ia the saloon of the defendant, was secured yesterday forenoon about 10:30 and some evidence was submitted before 1 dinner. After examining about fifty persons the lawyers agreed that the following good men and true were qualified to weigh the law and the evidence in the case: Franklin Peck, Jackson; James T. Callahau, Bethlehem; Cornelius Fisher, Noble; Jacob Leffel, Bethlehem; John Hickey, Harrison; J. O. Winegardner. Adams; David H. C'ly- mer. Clinton; Geo. W. Galloway, Jefferson; Robest R. Reed, Clinton; Daniel Murphy, Deer Greek; Enock Jones, Adams; James Hedrick, Jefferson. The first witaest'called by the State was William Shaffer, a farmer who was in the saloon when the deadly blows were struck. Shaffer testified that he entered the saloon and saw a, game of cards in progress between John Gibbs, George Myers, Owen Bogue and James Hulce, When the game was concluded Gibbs, who with Myers lost the game told Klein who was behind the bar that he had no money to pay for h Ls share in the game. Klein replied that Gibbs had been playing that game too often. Witness heard a blow, and turning, saw Klein strike Gibbs over the bar with piece of .rubber hose. Klein then ran from behind the bar and struck Gibbs six or eight times more with the same implement. Gibbs was not knocked down. Klein held him by the coat while striking him. Owen Bayne, a Frenchman, and an attache of the saloon testified that John Gibbs came in the saloon between 7 and 8 o'clock that morning: I suggested that we play a game of seven-up; Gibbs and Myers lost, and Klein demanded pay for his drinks; Gibbs said he couldn't and Klein ordered him out of the house; Klein reached across the counter and struck Mm across the face two or three times; in the scuffle the dog jumped at Gibbs but I drove him back; Gibbs started again and run against me; he was'a foot or two from the bar when Klein hithim; Gibbs said: "Don't hit me, let me'go;" Klein hit him once" on the face and once on the shoulder. Court then adjourned for dinner and on motion of the State the court ruled that the jury should not separate until, the end of the trial, and the jurors filed out for dinner in custody of Bai-. liff Eiserlo, who will not leave them them until the. trial is ended. ., After dinner Alf L. Anderson was- called, and he testified that he met Gibbs at the corner of Broadway and Third- streets that morning. Gibbs was in an apparently dazed condition. Witn'ess noticed an 1 ugly bruise on the man's face. He staggered up Broad- sober. He watched the game of cards which was engaged in by Gibbs and the others; when it came time for a settlement Gibbs disclosed that he had no money with which to pay. Klein replied that he could not work that kind of a game again and reaching beneath the bar grabbed the bit of hose and struck Gibbs over the bar with it, then followed his blows by grabbing Gibbs by the breast and jamming him up against the ice chest where he dealt him several other blows. Gibbs broke away and running around -aTpobt' table "was'followe'd by Klein who grabbed n pool .ball from, the table and threw it at Gibbs, without, however, hitting him; did not see Bogue touch the dog to put it out, Gibbs walked- out, did^ndt stagger; his face and head were badly bruised. James Levi Huice, a teamster living on West Canal street, was in the saloon the morning of the fatal affray, and was one of the four persons engaged in the game of cards out of which grew the killing. He testified that Myers and Gibbs lost the game and that Myers settled for his half (they were playing for the whisky)but Gibbs when called upon to settle his share declared that he had no .money and said that Myers would settle for him. Myers emphatically refused to do this, and Klein said that some body must pay for it. Gibbs reiterated that he had no money, whereupon Klein an- :-: G L O S ED Pending Important Changes! Our Store will be close until 10 o'clock Thursday morning. Several radical changes are contemplated. Some departments will be Entire;;-.-. In such cases goods will be laid out in lots and Priced To Sell regardless of cost. way. Councilman Winters testified, that he also saw Gibbs at 8 o'clock in ,he morning in front of Tanguy's store; he had the appearance of a man badly hurt; saw blood and bruises on lis face. , Dr. Arthur Herman who assisted at the autopsy on the body of .the deceased, testified that Gibbs came to his death by compression, of .the brain, resulting: from the formation of a clot of blood from a., contusion, resulting, in jaralysis and death. In the estima- ion of the witness the heavy end of j he hose must have been used to strike he blow. William Marshall; a young man whose home is at Summittville, - Ind.-, and who was in the saloon at the'time if the. affray testified that he was at hat time employed at Dolan's foundry' md walked into Hunter & Klein's aloon on the morning of the 16th of 'anuary last and while standing there saw Gibbs come in alone, apparently grily said that he could not work that game again, and grasping a piece of hose from beneath the bar struck Gibbs on the head, knpcking his hat off. Witness here indentiiied the piece of hose in court as the instrument Klein used, and said that Klein had it in his hand when he reached over the bar to strike Gibbs. ' He struck Gibbs but once when the latter started away and Klein rushed from behind the bar with the billet, and catching Gibbs by the breast with his left hand pushed him against the ice chest and struck him four or five times over the shoulders and head, Gibbs trying to protect his head with his upraised arm; Gibbs cried, "Please, don't hit me again!" To this Klein replied, '-You have been playing this on me before, and will you do it again?" Gibbs said "no," and Klein pushed him away. Witness could not recall any remark Klein made after Gibbs went out. On cross- examination he testified that he did 'not know which end, the loaded or other end, of the hose Gibbs was struck with; Gibbs started to run around the pool'table when Klein followed him, and picking up a pool ball threw it at him but did not hit him: Klein went to strike Gibbs again when Owen Bogue .caught his arm and told him not to do it; Gibbs walked out in a shaky manner; his eye was badly bruised; think Gibbs was sober. Witness said that his impression of Gibbs 1 condition was tkat he was a pretty badly "licked" man. A sketch of the ground floor together with bar, stove, tables, ice chest and fixtures of Hunter &• Klein's saloon was hung before the jury, and G. W. Hunter, Klein's partner, affirmed chat the sketch was an accurate one. Jacob Lotz testified that he saw Gibbs make his exit from the saloon; saw blood on his right hand; Gibbs staggered and appeared either drunk or badly hurt. Joe Lindsey, another attache of the saloon was mainly corroborative. He testified to the details substantially as the above, but added that when Gibb! ran around the pool table and started for the door he discovered that he did not have his hat on and turning stooped . to pick up the hat." As he stooped Klein struck him again. Gibbs said 'Don't hit me any more" or something of that nature. Witness did not see Gibbs make any offer to strike Klein. Lindsey was the last witness introduced and the defense will subject him to a cross examination this morning. Judge Cox ordered that court would convene a half hour earlier than usual at 8:30. •The court room was pretty well filled all afternoon.

Although coming somewhat late in the season no social affair of the pas brilliant season in this city' has beet more signally successful or peculiarly delightful than the ''house-warming and reception given by Mr. and Mrs J. E. Redmond last night. At eight o'clock the portals o the palatial new residence o Mr. and Mrs. Redmond, on North street swung opsn. to receive the invited guests who presently throngec the handsome pai'lors of the magnificent new'home. Mr. and Mrs. Red mond received their guests in trulj hospitable style and the affah throughout -was most pleasant. As the beauties and conveniences of the new home dawned on the guests many exclamations of admiration were heard and the host and. hostess were Joudly congratulated on the new home just opened. Dancing and card playing were the indulgences of the evening and orchestral music was a pleasing feature. An elegant supper was served and it was long after midnight before the delightful reception was at an end. Merit Wins.

Wlirn tho Earth Was Yovmff. When the earth was very young, says Dr. Ball, astronomer royal for Ireland, it went around so fast that the day was only three hours long.
