The trial of Mrs, Augusta Schmidt or tho killing of Oscar Walton will irobably close, as to the evidence, efore noon today. The defense is bout through. Tho most important •Itnesaes and those upon whom the efense was naturally depending much were the defendant. Mrs. Schmidt and er son Walter, aged 10 years. The oy told what he had to tell in a very tralghtforward manner and wai little otbered by the skillful cross-examin- vion to which, he was subjected. The first witness upon tho convening f court yesterday r.alternoon was the efendant whoae testimony was list- nedto with the utmost interest by he audience which fairly packed the ourt room. In her broken way and with tho best command of English hat she could bring to bear on tho ubjeci she told the Btory of the kill- ng and ol the repeated .attempts upon her person made by Walton'prevlous- y. Her evidence included a story of her life for some years back and irorn the tale she told It was ovidont that tiers was not the pleasanteet life In tbe world. The evidence for the defense will in. all probability close before noon today and tbe arf ument will begin at the afternoon session. In this case the case will likely bo given to tee jury Friday evening and after that no man knowetb. Lone Blntunc.0 Telephone Koute.

There has been B general condemnation of the 'Pharos without regard to party. Mayor Read appointed his Finance Committee over the opposition of the republicans. He appointed Dolan chairman and Wade and Boyer. What right had Boyer to demand and receive the money for the Erie avenue purchase? Dolan was chairman and if he was an interested party and could net aot, Wado was the other Democrat on the committee to take his place. Treasurer Hoffman is 'ademocrat, and wbv did he pay over the Erie avenue money on the order of tho minority member, Boyer, a republican, unless the matter was all right? Hoffman and Dolan and Wade, all democrats, are attacked by the Pharos. Boyer acted for the others and with their consent, and if any wrong was done Dolan, Hoffman and Wade, are responsible for it. But the fact is that the Pharos is anxious to down its own party on account of the gaa vote. Hcnnelder-MMle Weddlufr Tuesday evening at 7 o'c'ock at the St. Vincent do Paul church, Very Rev. M. E.

He said be was ten years old going on eleven, and didn't know when his birthday was. His mother told him, but he did not remember. His father was Charles Schmidt, and big mother, the defendant, Augusta Schmidt. Hi» home was in Loganaport, at the corner of Wright and 18th streets. Did not know the number of the house. Waa home the day after the shooting. His father was at Joe Gray's and went right after breakfast. Oscar Walton was cutting iorn.

When he returned he heard a tumult in the south room and ran into the house through the kitchen door. He saw Walton have his mother with her back against the table and was beating her about the face and chest. In the struggle the table slid twelve feet away over to the left wall of the room. Walter could see blood on his mother's face. He cried to Walton not to kill his mammi and wanted him taken away. Walton struck him and he fell over a chair onto the floor. Finally, old Mr. Walton came in and took Oscar away. Then he took a chair, while Augusta's back was turned as It to strike her, but she didn't notice the act, Mrs. Schmidt went in aiter her revolver, but the boy did not see it when she came out. She jumped to the partition door and pressed against it. Soon the pistol shot went off. The boy said his mother went right back in her room and put her revolver in the— Judge Dykeman—"Cupboard?'' Witness—"No." Judge Dykeman—"Stand?" Witness—"No; where they keep tbe dresses." Judge Dykeman—' Bureau?" Witness—"No; tho wardrobe." The little fellow told his story read ily though in German accent, and like one of older years. When the cross- examination was being conducted, Judge Dykoraan told him to bo careful of his answers and not eay anything quickly, that would get him confused. The State examined him about the coroner's examination as to wbeth er he was giving hearsay or not, in (tead of what he knew himself.
