The case, however, does not at track nearly the crowd that attended the Shaffer murder trial OL- the Harvey murder trial. Conspicuous among 1 the spectators during: the whole proceedings have been prominent members of the saloon keepers association who are keeping tab closely on the progress of the trial. The first witness yesterday morning; was Joe Lindsey who was recalled for cross examination. His evidence brought out no additional features, John Dunkle was called and testified as to what he know of the condition of JohaGibbs, the murdered man, when the latter entered the Senate saloon after leaving Hunter & Klein's saloon on that fatal morning 1 . QVVitness was in the Senate and saw Gibbs enter the place. HLs first thought was that Glbbs was drunk, his condition being very unnatural, but on second impression decided that the man was badly nurt; noticed blood on the back of his head when he tottered up to the bar and asked John Tierney, the proprietor, for water to wash his \voun3s; Gibbs stood an instant then wilted down onto the floor as if paralyzed; do not think he struck his head on the floor when he fell; Tierney and Joe Lee carried him out and set him on the pavement; did not see them after they passed the screen saw Gibbs five minutes later on thi pavement where he lay, his heac bleeding afresh; Tierney did not throv Gibbs out the front door nor did h throw him to the floor. John Tierney who was at that tim o'ne of the proprietors of the Senate saloon, testified that Gibbs entered the saloon about 8 o'clock in the morning apparently intoxicated; he leanec against the bar and asked for water t( wash his head; in response to query as to who hit him, he said "Barney: took hold of him and turned him around when he sank to the floor; die not strike his head on the floor; his hat fell off and witness saw blood on back of his head oozing out. Joe Lee and I carried him out and laid him on the pavement. P. J. Farrell, co-partner in the sa r loon, testified substantially as above. Coroner Ballard testified that at the autopsy it. was developed that Gibbs' skull was fractured and several wounds were found on the_ scalp. A large blood clot was formed on the brain from the ^effect of which death resulted. J. W. Winters, the turnkey of the jail, testified that Gibb; was brought to thej jail between, eight and nine o'clock in the morning, and that no injury could .have been sustained by him there. At this point Gibbs 1 coat and pants was brought into court and submitted as evidence by the prosecution. The ghastly blood stains on the garments created quite a sensation in the audience. . John 0. Skelton stated that he is assistant undertaker at s the establishment, of Woll & Parker, and testified that he undressed the body of Gibbs to prepare the same for burial; saw blood on shirt and pants; also blood had run down the back; had -burned the shirt after taking it off. Cross-examination brought out the fact that the blood all came from a cut 1 inch long on the back of the head; both eyes badly bruised, the right one being the worst. John Keller, brother-in -law of the. deceased, took the stand and identified the coat and pants previously brought into court as being the garments worn by Gibbs on the morning. of ths 16th of January; blood on hot h garments and on inside of hat. Cross examination. Gibbs unmarried, SO years old, spent his money in saloons; was addicted to drinking-. u Frank Baker stated that he met Gibbs between Broadway and Market on Third street about 7:30 o'clock that morning; looked very pale and noticed blood on hands. Cross examination. Walked -like he had been drinking; did not notice blood or bruises on face.' D. D. Dykeman testified in regard to the distance from Hunter & Klein's saloon to the Senate saloon, nearly four blocks. Wm. C. Cullen states that on the morning in question he saw Gibns sitting in the east window of the Douglas building corner Fifth and Broadway: could not walk; he and officer Murphy picked him up and placed him on a dray and took him to the jail: did not notice blood on person or clothing, On the cross examination Cullen stated that he thought Gibbs was drunk; did not notice any blood until tliey had got to the jail; blood coming from a cut across the back of the head. At this point officer Murphy, the only remaining witness foe the State, was called but was unable to appear on the account of sickness , The prosecution then rested the evi- ness who will be heard the first thing this morning. M, D-. Pansier here 1'arose, and in a slrong- speech stated the object of the befense to prove the defendant not guilty, and that the blows struck by Klein did not cause the death of John Gibbs, but that he died from a fall on the sidewalk in front of the Senate saloon. They would also aim to show that up to the time Gibbs entered this saloon he had received no injuries that would cause death. The first witness called by the defense was Maggie Halpin who stated that she is a clerk in the employ of Wiler & Wise, saw Gibbs fall in front of the Senate saloon about S o'clock on the morning of January the 16th; he fell very hard and helpless on his back with his feet towards the door, saw no one with him at the time of the fall; witness walked up to him and stopped; he lay on his back; tried to rise three times: apparently beckoning to some one in saloon. Cross examination did not bring out any new facts except that she saw blood on head and hands. Joseph O'Day states that he met Gibbs between 2:40 and S o'clock a. m. on that morning in Martin |Bligh's saloon, remained with him tiil 5 o'clock; had taken .three drinks and was apparently drunk; saw scratches on his hands that had been made withiH the past few hours; could not say how-they were caused: met him afterward in the Senate saloon where he was drinking beer; later met him at Hunter & Klein; drank whisky: did not see him again.

Mrs. Harrison is the only President's wife, says a Washington correspondent, who has made an inventory of the furniture of the white house. She believes that all of its fine old articles have an historic value and that they should be preserved. Since the white house was opened by Mrs. John Adams more than S500,000 has been spent for furniture, but the amount of personal _ property now in the white house would not bring§50,000 at auction. A great deal of the table silver has disappeared, but- there is still some which finds a place of honor at the state dinners. Qne of the most beautiful parts of the whole collection is the solid silver service which was bought by President Monroe. The shapes of these articles are curious. There are two soup tureens with covers, and these tureens are affixed to large, oval-shaped, flat bottomed stands, which spread out beneath them like trays. There are silver cake baskets, silver gravy boats, solid silver coffee and tea urns and fine cut glass claret jugs with silver tops. One of the most curious pieces of the white house silver service is the silver Hiawatha boat, which was bought at the centennial exposition of 1876. This is used at most of the state dinners, and is always filled with flowers. There are also the gold spoons and forks which were bought by President Van Buren, and which formed a campaign issue when President Harrison's grandfather ran against Mr. Van Buren and defeated him. The glass of the white house is yery fine, and a great deal of it is required for the wines which are used at state dinners. A great deal of the glass was manufactured in this country. A New York firm made fifty dozen pieces at one time a few years ago. These were ordered early during'Mr. Cleveland's term. Some of the articles have an American eagle cut upon them. —N. Y. Continent.
