Testimony far the Defense Is Expected All the KTldenoe Will be IB To-iFnj The Still Maintains Nonrlialenre and Chats Gail; With Reporters He Arouses Himself In Court Making Sketches. WOODSTOCK, Ont., Sept. the opening of the defenxe yesterday afternoon Mr Ulackstock said: We entertain a very ti-onK opinion as to the insufficiency of rown ciiHes, but will not discuss that at present lor obviouH reasons. He intro- duced a cei of Birehull's marriagu 'n KnKlund to Florence Stevenson, Nov. 19, proving that if in England then could not have been In Blenheim swamp n tolx-r, 1888, as one witness testified. John Kaah was the first witness for the lefcn-e. His bouse commands a view of Uie place where lien well's body waa 'mind, lie describes tests made by Defec- ive Bluett, placing a boy on the road even vith where Hcnwell's body HIM found, The witness looked from his bedroom win- low and he could see the boy tnd also from the outside of the house. in said on Tuesday evening, Fob. 18, he eard two shots in the swamp, one a minute or two after the other, and directly wo men came out and went west. Mrs Schultz, who lives opposite Kaah, Iso heard these two She said they were not loud. John Friedcnburg testified that he gave ride to two men Feb. 17, about in lie niorniiiK. They were going easi, iu the irectioD of Blenheim swamp. Witness aid neither one was Bircliall. Atkinson, hotel keeper at Drumbo, came after Frcdenburg. Asked lie had seen any suspicious persons dur- ig the week of the murder, he he ad; that Robert Caldwell and George Barker came to Ins hotel at or -I 'clock Thursday morning, Feb. 20. Barker orefelt boolsjund rubbers; Ualdwell wore oinmon overshoes over boots. It should lie remembered here that evi- was druwn out early in the case rom Undertaker Schwartz that he saw in le woods near the body tracks made by -lOfcaiins or overshoes. Detective Murray had Barker and Cald- ell under suspicion at first and had al- ios-t decided to arrest them when Bircliall vt-tted hi.s attention. Continuing witness said Barker and aldwt'l] WBfe the worse of liquor. Their uggy was muduy. Adam Oliver, living one and a half ilea north of Princeton, and four ill's from the spot where the ody lay, swore that two men called his house either Tuesday or Vednesday nioruiui; of that week at 3 'cluck and asked tbe way to Princeton, ud said they were bujing horses. He iw but one man, who said: want to .'Ito and witness concluded lie oilier man was iu the rig, w hich was undine at the gate, The man u oil good ti'iiu said witness, mid did nut swear. Now it set-meil evident tl.at the defense 'as dying to prove that two parties of 10 men encli nere abroad that week, the at Air. Oliver's being pleasant Kiken and the other boisterous, and that eitHell was one of the two men who a.ied mi Oliver. Crown counsel, however, showed Unit iver, in Ins statement at the inquest, jre the man he spoke to "kept on the vear AsM'd if lie had said so, he replied ho d no present knowledge of using such on Is Young, a farmer living half a ilc north of Princeton, swore some rangers woke him up by rapping on his oor lit a o'clock Thursday morning, Feb. 1 He did not get out of bed; they houted out for him to tell them the way o Princeton. "Witness heard no sound of men's rig, but was sure they had one, or he buggy tracks next morning, le judged they were robbers, for they tepped into the porch of the house and mule no sound Xext morning, going o Princeton, be followed the buggy tiacks all i In' way. Simnel Strode of Piinceton saw two men nl his hotel at Princeton NinrMlai, the day before the IK> Ij was They weru B.ikiT and Ciildwell, and told him they came from Drumbo He swore he saw men on the Sal urdny after the mtuiler, and the tru- ksof two Hi-ii leading from the road to wilhinafew feet o n here the body was loun 1. They started from marks made by a rig and jack by another course to the rig He as on the coroner's jury and closely ex- amined Uie tracks. lie said they were in-ger than if made by Benwell's boots and look -d rs if made by moccasins. Ha said it would have been impossible for a man to carry his own weight over the fal- len trees and brushwood. He said trucks weie not iresh ones and went with- n four feet of the body; nevertheles, Mr. Dsler made him admit that he was satis- fied about the tracks sufficiently to sign the verdict implicating Bircliall. Col. Cowan of Woodstock swore he saw Baker and Caldwell at Dake's hotel in Princeton Wednesday or Thursday suc- ceeding the murder. He that it was Thursdoy. They said they came from Woodstock. One was drunk, the other sober. William Lancaster of Gobies' coroners, twoimKs fiomwhere the body lay, was subpoenaed by the crown, but not called. Defense put him on the stand. He said Thursday morning, Feb. 20, at o'clock he was a-.' aliened by a rapping. He asked who was there, and a voice replied, "It's me; coma out, I want to fight you." Wit- ness opened the window and saw George Buker. Then a rig drove up and Caldwell jumpi d out. Baker said they were lost and wanted to get to Uiumbo or Prince- ton. It was raining. Baker and Caldwell scuffled, swore a great deal, then drove away. James Oliver, bar tender, and John Mo- Kay, pioprietor of the North American hotel at Woodstock, swore they testified it the inquest that they thought on look- ing on Benwell's body it was that a peddler of polish seen in the neighborhood a short time before. Geoi ge Fowler gave the same testimony and admitted he knew he was mistaken. Aim d haycock gave similar testimony. Joseph Martin of the jury at the Ben- well inquest, swore he saw the tracks of Uo meu de-cribed by the previous wit- They were very large tracks and led to where the body was picked up, cir- cled around and came out near where they went in. Many other tracks were about the body made by those who took ont the body, 1'ut they went in another direction. He sain the large tracks were older than the others. Then followed evidence concerning trail through the swamp. The crown had many references to the trail in their evidence and Oeuwull'a body was found beside it. William Bnrgew said he knew the swamp thoroughly; had limited in it for fifty years and never knew of a trail. John Strode, a himter of twenty years rtandiiig, had been all through thw swamp and denied any knowledge of the trail. Hobinson Smiley, with fifty years' ex- perience as a nimrod in the swamp, said tbe same thing. Now came a further effort to prove an alibi. Frederick Mellirann, a grocer at Wood- stock, swore he saw Birchall at Wood- in February between 10 and 11 o'clock, about two weeks before his arrest He wascertain of the man and hour, but not of the day. He could not fix that nearer than about two weeks before his arrest. He said he knew Birchall per- fectly by sight. He met him on th" street but did not speak. He declared Bin-hall wore red stockings and knee breeches, with a bow on the side, and seal skin cap, and said in 1888 be usually saw Demore.si in knee breeches. The theory of the crown is that Hirchiill arrived in Buffalo Feb. 18, killed Bi-mvell in Blenheim swamp next tiny, returning to Buffalo that niuht, going to t'np Falls next day. and remaining there scveiiil days. He wit-, arrested March 2, and two weeks previous would be about the time of the niu rder. Two or three other witnesses were called but their evidence was of little importance. Six o'clock arriving Mr. Bhukstock stated that all evidence for the defense would be in by noon to-day at the latest. He asked that then adjournment be taken until Monday morningtogivoopportunity to go through the evidence. McMahon asked if the interests of the prisoner demanded it, and receiving an affirmative answer granted the request. On rebuttal the crown will produce a man named Nesbitt, who it will be proved Van in Woodstock about the tune when Slelliman says he saw Birchall and who wore the fancy costume described. Crown attorneys say they will also pro- duce the men who the shots Eabb heard. Bhchall was taken to jail last night in a closed carriage. Before' leaving the box he chaited gaily with the repot ters. He was busily engaged all aJternojn sketches. He also makes notes of impor- tant points of the evidence and goes over them ai night with ilie jailer. Airs. Bircliall is very fcebje. and has not been in coin t since Monday. Comuieuton evety hand here i.s that the defense offered is exceedingly lame. IN THE NATIONAL CAPITOL.

LONDON, Sept. 27.-A deltiKe of tele- grams from England, Scotland and Amer- ica has poured in upon the Nationalist lenders it witli the prisoners and dlsuust at the brutality of the police. Col. Ciuldell, the presiding niiigistrnte at the trial, seems determined to deprive the accu.scd of all facilities so far us lies in his power. Ha refust'd jmlenluy to allow the police ranks to be inspected in order that the Nationalists could pick out the men who had shown the most conspicuousbrutiility in the street attack upon tho members of parliament. This will probably make it impossible fur the sullerers to obtain any rudross for tlie ussnulls committed upon them.
