AWTMOR.H COPYRIGHT BY AMERICAN PRESS ASSOO4ATtON, MM. CHAPTER III. TRIAL AND SENTENCE. As our aim is not to harrow the reader with the multiplication of vain details, only the gist of the newspaper reports of the time will be given here. 'The coroner's jury found that Harry Trent was feloniously murdered on the night of February twenty-five or the morning of February twenty-six, eighteen hundred and seventy, by a knife or dagger in the hands of Keppel Darke, an artist and .portrait painter. The case was promptly laid before the grand jury, who brought in a true bill against the accused. He was committed, for trial, and meanwhile was lodged in the Tombs prison. The district attorney announced that he was ready to go on with the trial at once, and Mr. Baunick, of counsel for the accused, re-nlied that ur> nUihvJes •woum oe imerposea on tnerr sicie. Accordingly, after a day spent in getting a jury, the trial began. We will summarize the evidence according to the chronological order of events. Mrs. Sally Matchin, who appeared dressed in black, created a sensation in court by stating that her real name was now Mrs. Hairy Trent, widow of the deceased, she having been privately married to him in France in the year eighteen hundred and sixty-nine. It was on account of this marriage that Trent had built his new house. She was asked to give a- reason for the secrecy that had been maintained, but the question was objected to and the objection \vaS sustained. She said that she believed she had been provided for in her late husband's will, but no will had at this date been found. She added that Mr. Trent had taken tea at her home on "West Eighteenth street on the afternoon before the murder, and that they had then arranged to immediately issue invitations to a reception at his new house, when the public announcement of their marriage was to have been made. When they parted that evening he was in good health and spirits. T7i<}}7vJso?icr icas taken bacli to iht, Tombs. Mrs, Alice Raven, called later in the triill by the defense in rebuttal, testified that Harry Trent had confidentially informed her that it was his design to win the hand of his ward, Olympia Haven, daughter of the witness, but that at his request witness had kept her daughter in ignorance of this plan. Cross-examined, she said that Mr. Trent had for several years past been paying her an an- Jiuul sum of eight thousand dollars, and tliat lie had told her that when his new hotise was finished he would propose to Olympia, and in case she accepted him would take them both there to live with him. In re-direct examination witness said that Mr. Trent had not stated what disposition of his property or hospitality he would make in case Olympia refused him. Olympia herself, called by the prosecution, testified that she had never received any intimation that her guardian intended to marry her, and that in any case she would never have married liuii, though she loved him in another way very dearly. The latter part of this testimony was objects'! to. Randall Morris, haucl clerk of Mr. Trent, testified that ho dined at the club with Mr. Trent on the evening of the murder. They had discussed an important matter of business, relating to a valuable consignment of jewels that was expected from a foreign correspond- out. He added that no news of this consignment had since then been beard of; but that, as the foreign correspondent was in Paris, it was thought that the hostilities now existing between France and G.erin;my had caused the plan of Bending the jewels to be abandoned. Mr. Trent, after dinner, had left the club, saying that lie thought of going up town. He was then looking well and ohetrful. John .Simpson, an ex-soldier, testified "that lie had long been acquainted with Mr. Trent, and had latterly been serving, in conjunction with his wife, as caretaker of tho new house. Mr. Trent had frequently come to tho house alone, but never to spend the night until February twenty-five. He had come in that night about nine o'clock, and gone up- to the library. He was ,alone, and seemed not to expect callers. We will for a moment interrupt Mr. •Simpson's testimony at this point to give that of Peter Ferguson, porter of -the Federal club, to the effect that, at about ten o'clock on the night of February twent-five, a gentleman giving his Kepj»el Durke had called at tUe ask fo* Mr. Harry Trent. Ferd told him tliat he was not in, beifcg further questioned by Mr. d said that, for all he knew, migW have gone up town to look wiig uew feou&e, Mr. Darke had son had noticed that he carried something wrapped up in paper in his baud. To Return to Mr. Simpson. He said that at about half-past ten o'clock he had heard a ring at the door of the new house, and on opening the door had seen the prisoner, Keppel Darke, nrho asked to see Mr. Trent OH important business. He had in his hand a long paper bundle. Witness admitted him, and he went up stairs. How long he remained witness did not kuow, as he had not heard him go ont. Witness then described how he had found Mr. Trent dead on the floor of his study the next morning with a dagger in his back. Wituess had admitted no one but Darke into the house that night. The dagger was produced in court and identified by Simpson. It was of Japanese manufacture, very sharp, with a curiously carved hilt, Mrs. Simpson, called by the defense, testified that between eleven and twelve o'clock on the night of February twenty- five, she and her husband being then in bed. and her husband asleep, she had remembered having left a candle burning in an upper room of the house. She had feared possible fire, and had therefore put on her dressing gown and gone np stairs to pxit out the candle. As she passed the library door she looked through, it being ajar, and saw Harry Trent and another gentleman talking together. The other gentleman was snort—snorter by a good deal than Mr. Trent—and had a dark beard or whiskers. She had only a glimpse of him in passing; he stood rather sidewise toward her. She did not think ho was seated, but conld not swear that he was not. She was sure she saw hadr on Ms face. He did not at all resemble the prisoner. She was able to give no explanation of Ms being in the house. Mrs. Simpson's evidence was the only thing of any weight brought out in favor of Darke, but the old lady weakened a little under the district attorney's severe cross-examination. Daniel Parker, a policeman on duty near the house on the ifiorning of February twenty-six, testified that he was summoned by the witness Simpson at fifteen minutes past six a. m., and described the position in which he found the body. After making n brief survey of the premises he got assistance and communicated with the captain of his precinct. Frank Mtinroe, a detective, said that the case had been put in the hands of the detective bureau at eight o'clock on the morning of February twenty-six, anc that he had been detailed to investi gate it. There was a safe in the study at the new house; it was open, anc it contained papers; by whom it had been opened, and whether or not any papers or valuables had been abstracted from it, there was nothing to show. The windows of the rooms were close and fastened; there was no sign anywhere of forcible entry. From information lie obtained, he believed that the prisoner, Keppel Darke, was the last person with Mr. Trent, before the latter's death. He obtained a wan-ant for his arrest, and served it on him at his studio, in West Twenty-third street, at ten minutes before eleven o'clock a. m. February twenty-six. The prisoner, just before his arrest, was overheard to say something about killing the deceased. On being arrested he asserted his innocence. Olympia Raven gave her evidence very quietly and clearly. She had known the prisoner for a year. She had commissioned him to paint her portrait for presentation to the deceased. The twenty- fifth of February was the day appointed for the last sitting. She had arrived with her mother at the studio at half- past ten. The prisoner had informed her that Mr. Trent had told him the night before that lie was contemplating marriage with her. She had denied the truth of tins, and her denial had brought out the avowal of the prisoner's love for her, which she had reciprocated. At that moment the detective had entered and made tho arrest. Cross-examined, she deposed that she had frequently seen a Japanese knife similar to the one produced at the prisoner's studio; she had admired it greatly. She had noticed nothing in the prisoner's manner or speech at any time that was inconsistent with his perfect innocence of tho charge. She believed him utterly incapable of such a crime. Mrs. Raven, recalled, said that she had thought Mr. Darke behaved very queerly on the morning of February twenty-six. He locked disheveled and haggard, and was violent in his manner. She had supposed him to be intoxicated. Dr. Taylor deposed as to the appearance and character of the wound that caused deceased's death. The blade had penetrated tho left lung and reached the heart. The blow must have been delivered by a person standing -behind the lad given his trtte name 16 the portet at the club, and had left him with the avowed intention of going to seek Mr. Trent at hia house. Again, he had an* nounced himself by name to the cafe- taker, Simpson, Persons meditating murder do not act in this way. As regarded the dagger, the prisoner frankly admitted it to be his. He had taken it vrith him to Mr. Trent's house that night for a peculiar reason, which from Its nature was not susceptible of proof, but the very simplicity of which should commend it to the credence of the jury. Miss Raven had admired the dagger at bis studio, and the prisoner had resolved to make her a present of it. He had accordingly taken it with him on the evening in question, intending, after his interview with Mr. Trent at his clnb, to call upon Miss Raven at her house and give it to her. But, contrary to his expectation, he had not found Mr. Trent at his club, and again, contrary to his expectation, Mr. Trent had refused his assent to his suit. In his distress and preoccupation he had forgotten on his departure to take the dagger away with him. He .had gone from Mr. Trent's house to his own studio, and had there spent the night; and this would sufficiently account for his disheveled appearance the next morning. But surely a murderer woulcl have fled, and as surely he would not have left behind him such a piece of evidence as the fatal dagger. But, on the other 'hand, the real murderer who used the dagger had the best of reasons for leaving it in the wound; for to do so would be to divert suspicion from himself. And who was the real murderer? Unquestionably the short man with the dark beard whom Mrs. Simpson had seen between eleven and twelve o'clock. The presence there of this man had not been accounted for. Yet the fact of his presence there had been sworn to, and that fact was irreconcilable with the guilt of the prisoner. And for the jury to bring in a verdict against the prisoner wcvuld, therefore, be to add another inurdefto the one already committed. Let the short man with the dark beard be found and the mystery of Harry Trent's death wosfld be a mystery no longer. The district attorney, in asking for a verdict against the prisoner, said he should have been well pleased had there been better evidence to offer in his favor. But really there was no defense. The visit of the prisoner to the house was conceded; the possession of the dagger was conceded; a dispute on a matter involving a woman's love was conceded; the fact tliat no one else was admitted to the house was conceded. As to the prisoner's explanations about the dagger, even had they been matter of legal evidence, they were utterly futile and ridiculous. No sensible man would credit them for a moment, and it would make no difference as to the probability of the prisoner's guilt if they were credited. With respect to the conflict of evidence regarding the identity of the prisoner with the person whom Mrs. Simpson thought she saw, the district attorney was far from wishing to diminish whatever weight it might have in the jury's eyes. But he fancied it would have very little. The old lady had been asleep and was still only half awake when she went up stairs. She had had a glimpse of some one through a crack of a door, and had thought it was a short man with a beard. But he might have been sitting down, and a shadow might have caused the appearance of a beard. The jury woulcl have noticed that Mrs. Simpson, in the witness box, had worn spectacles. She certainly was not likely to have worn her spectacles to bed, however, nor to have put them on to go up stairs on a voyage of discovery after a candle. Cousecjnently that glimpse of hers through a crack in the door was likely to have been a very blind glimpse indeed.

There was no sign of a struggle. Death must have been instantaneous. Various witnesses testified to the prisoner's good social standing and previous good character. Mr. Bannick, in his speech for the defense, admitted that the prisoner had been in Mr. Trent's house on the night of tke murder, but asserted that he had left it before eleyan o'clock. He had gone to ask Mr. Trent's assent to bis suit to Olympia Raven. Mr. Trent, in refusing it, had observed that he intended uwirrying her himself. This statement, which was confirmed by the testimony of Mrs. Raven, a witness for the prosecution, showed that the deceased must have been a man of loose morals, for it had been shown that ho was at the time already married to another lady. A man of loose morals is certain to have enemies, and such enemies as are apt to'be moved to murder. Again, Mr. Trent was a d«alef in diamonds; he was known to be often in possession of gems of immense value; he might easily have been murdered on this ground; but it was not even pretended that this had bees the prisoner's motive. In fact, no motive whatever had been assigned—for to be informed that ene has a rival in a lady's affections is certainly not a motive. And not only were the prisoner's social position and character incompatible with such jMJriwSj but bis conduct on the $yem>" / ^ * ••"^oicder could not York there was but one law. for rich and poor, for gentle and simple. The judge, in summing up, said that the jury must confine themselves to the legal evidence that had been produced in court. The statements of the prisoner's counsel regarding the prisoner's motives and explanations did not come under this head. They might or might not be true, but the jury could not consider them. On the other hand, the testimony as to the short man with the dark beard should receive their careful attention. It might be of importance. All the evidence against the prisoner was circumstantial. There had been instances of such evidence bein£ fatally mistaken, but such cases were as one to ten thousand where it had been correct, and it was sometimes even preferable to direct evidence itself. His address was short and impartial, and at its close the jury retired for deliberation. They remained out eighteen hours. When they re-entered court tho room was nearly empty. In answer to the clerk's question the foreman said that their verdict was guilty of murder in the second degree, premeditation not having been established. It was, as some of the jurors afterward explained in interviews with the reporters, a deed done in the heat of passion over the refusal of Trem to listen to Darlse's proposal — tke hasty outcome of a quarrel between two men both loving the same young wfman. The judge sentenced the prisoner to imprisonment at hard labor for life. Motion for a new trial was denied. The prisoner was taken back to the Tombs, and arrangements were made to send him to Sing Siug that night. (To be Continued,) - . - *-•*•*—* — > - .
