SURPRISE The State Withdraws Its Ob to Miss Wachters Testimony EXPECTS TO DISPROVE IT The Attempt to Prove an Alibi For Harry Hayward Progresses MINNEAPOLIS Feb state sprung a surprise in the Hayward mur der trial when it withdrew all tion to the introduction of Maggie Wachters testimony Miss Wachter is the stenographer of Busts attorney Who was to testify that Blixt had stated to his attorney in her presence that it with Adry not with Harry that he had conspired to murder Miss Ging The court had held that it was a com between client and attorney and was therefore inadmissible There had been the greatest interest awakened lawyers generally and Mr Br win received a telegram from W D Frazee at Miss citing three decisions as to the point The court was unwilling to admit the testimony with out the direct consent of Blixt and the murderer was brought from the jail and questioned personally by Judge Smith He had no objection he said and Miss Wachter was called It then developed that she was sick and could not be pres ent at this time The sudden change of front on the part of the state is said to be due to its ability to impeach Miss Wachters evidence absolutely Busts attorney will go on the stand and con it and it is also understood that the state has ascertained from a confi dant of Miss Wachter the true in of the evidence Miss Wachters Illness The young woman woman was ill os tensibly from tonsilitis but it was stated in another quarter than the courtroom that she had been reduced to the condi tion of a nervous wreck by the attitude Mr Hall assumed toward her on Satur day The conditions surrounding this witness have assumed a most ble character The defense asserts that knowing the truth as to confes sion and the manner in which it was obtained Miss Wachter found herself unable to silence the promptings of con science and consulted a firm of well known attorneys as to what she ought to do under the circumstances She was advised that as it was a matter of life and death concealment of any facts In her possession would be nothing less than The result was that she made the attorneys for the defense ac with real utterances aud announced her readiness to tell what she knew on the witness stand What the claims of the prosecution are relative to Miss Wachters statement has never been made clear except in the objection to its admission on the ground that it was a statement given to an attorney Mr Hall was asked after adjournment why the objections had been withdrawn and the understand ing arrived at was that the state did not consider the testimony of Miss Wachter damaging to the states case Assertions of the Defense The attorneys for Hayward make the assertion that the assistant county at torney tried by cajolery threats and all sorts of abuse to prevent the young woman from testifying and that her condition is largely the result of the methods used by the states laywer This fact will be brought out on re direct examination said Mr Smith It is a most disgraceful tiling and not to be tolerated We shall show up the methods of the attorney before the case is ended Mr Hall was asked to state what oc curred at the interview he had with Miss Wachter He laughed at the state ment of the other side which he charac as the of the de fense Thomas Watermans Testimony Thomas Waterman was called to tes as to Harry movements on Dec 8 the day of the murder He contradicted Adry Hayward in several important particulars as to time Three boarders at Harry Haywards boarding house testified that he was in tho dining room as late as that evening which brings him dangerously close to the time Liveryman Wilson claims to have seen him driving with Miss Ging half a mile away The defense expects to establish a complete alibi for the de fendant from 1

to noon nothing had been heard of Actor J B Gentry who murdered Yorke at Zeiss hotel The police of this city are guarding every depot in the city closely and if the murderer has not al ready made his

fired three shots at the un fortunate actress only one of which took effect Two bullets went wide of their mark and were round buried in the wall The third struck Miss Yorke hi the center of the

stenographer of Bluets at On the day before Christmas he attorney took her into Blists cell or the purpose of taking down a state meut from the prisoner No one else present at the time and she took down such words as the attorney ed Erwin then read the statement im to Blixt saying that lie anil aad planned the murder and had gone out to Lake Calhoun to arrange the de bails the week before He

the Maple In sections where the hard maple thrives it makes the most valuable dura bio and ornamental shade tree that can be obtained and usually it can be had from the adjacent woods for the asking and digging In warmer climates the soft maple is much planted As the foli age of both starts early they should be transplanted as soon as the ground is free from frost choosing trees not over 2 inches in diameter at two feet above the ground Leave on all the roots pos sible keeping them well protected from the sun and wind until again sot out The best success is usually obtained by cutting off all the branches and sawing off the top eight or ten feet from the ground covering all side wounds with paint or varnish and tying over the top a cloth saturated with liquid grafting wax Branches will be thrown out on all sides and should any of them ap pear too low remove them letting all those above a certain height remain 11 too thick the natural growth of the strongest will crowd out the weaker ones To obtain fully developed shade trees do not plant them closer than SO feet How to Dry Wet Shoes When without overshoes you are caught in the rain carefully remove all surface water and mud from
