Sol MoNKOt-'s Fnannacy, T. gcr at Niagara Falls, proved that he de- livered to O'Xoill, clerk of the Imperial hotel, u. tulogram purporting to be from Benwell to Birchall. O'Neill was sup- posed to deliver the message to Birchall Mr. Blnckstock put in the register of the >Iet i opolitan hotel of Now York show- ing the names of "J. K. Birchall and "DoiifjlHHs Ii. Pelly" and -'F. C. all in tho handwriting of the prisoner. This was all the evideuce for tho dclunsB and the addresses of the court counsel were at once entered upon. During his counsel's address the pris- oner listened calmry to all that was said. Mr. JJluckstook opened his address at 10.07 o'clock. He thanked the crown ami tin jury for the Indulgence granted the defense, by an adjournment overSundUy, which, to them, was an inestimable boon. Many of tlie mostenlightened_conntrieH, lie wtid, had abolished capital punish- ment. While they lived under a govern- ment that upheld this it was their duty to obey the statutes of the country But they would not send a man to the gallows without the most convincing evidence which had been sprung upon them by the crown. Tbo slimy net of the press had prejudiced the public mind, but his lord- ship had already told them that they must dngorge their minds of this false im- pression and pass upon the case according to tlic evidence. Some work was done and done well. His honest opinion was thut the only honest detective work done by the newspapein, but while he con- ceited their right to act honorably, the prens had no right to comment as it had on this evidence, nnd try tho case in the public mind before the case had been given to the jury. He pointed out the great preparations made for this case by the crown" nnd the enormous expense incurred to secure a conviction, as contrasted wiih the position of the defense. For and mouths the lawyers for Birchall hud worked and labored to secure a fair trial, without money. To the credit or ihe bar, lie it .said, they had no money to bring wit- ncases from England and but with a lot it for fair play they deemed it their duly to their queen and country to sec lli.it an innocent man had a fair trial. They appealed to (he jury to acquit the prisoner and set. ihe mob uud the press at. Uehance. He reverted to the honor of tho bar and claimed he was doing but his duty in de- fending n man who protested Iiis inno- cence. Did he not think he was innocent, he would not be addressing them now. lie asked for leniency for auy errors which might have been mndeduring the progress of ihe trial. "And (iod he said, "I am con- scious of these mistakes, but I ask you to ceusure me for these errors and not my client." lie asked them not to judge the client for his honesty, for if they did he would have to pass him to their censure. The facts where he did bring out Pelly and Benwell under falso statements, but the prisoner was not ou trial for these misstatcments. nor for the statements he made in several of the ciown witne-ses. Many of them appeared to be respectable people, and he did not intend to impugn their honesty, but he also wished to draw their attention to the frailly of human nvmiiry. HP threw doubt upon the slnte- inents of these witnesses, speaking par- ticularly about H.rclmlr.s farm at Ni- a'.'ani, which, he said, was a myth. The next question was: Did Birchall visit It doe.s appear, he said, he left Buffalo with Benuell Monday morn- ing, and the crown produced evidence to siinw who sold the tickets, but why were not these tickeis produced? Every conduclor bus a punch, and if iK'se tickets were used why are they not rod need. Then the crown alleges Birchall ought a lickec at Eastwood to Hamilton, 'Ut this ticket was not produced nor tho gent who sold it, but tlie assistant was rouglit forward, and when the defense ndeavorod to find what t he agent knew hey gut the cold shoulder. The crcnvu knew w'nat these witnesses eic to swear to, but the defense was de- ied the evidence until produced in court. Mnckstock pointed out that Birchall aad ieuwell about the same size, while lithe crown witnesses who allege they the two meu going toward the swamp wore that one was taller than the other, while ou actual measurement there was iot an inch between them. Then the crown witnesses spoke of one if them as a light-complexioned man. }ther discrepancies were pointed out in .heir evidence as told at the inquest and it this trial. He cautioned the jury about placing reliance upon such testimony. At coroner's inquest Poole swore the man lad a gunning case, but here he swore .here was no gunning case. Duffy swore Sirchall said his name was Smith and .hat he expected to meet his mother in Buffalo. If the prisoner was the man, what under leaven did he tell Duffy his name was Smith for? What did he talk with Duffy .t all for if he was theguiltyman? "Woulc ie not he more likely to hide himself? Is t not just possible this is not the man al all? He then dwelt upon the evidence offered by Aiiss Lockhart, Miss Choate ind others. He did not wish to say these witnesses were dishonest, but it must have mpressed the jury Wjjth the light anc easy manner iu which they went on the etand to sivear the life of a man away. -Many discrepancies were pointed out in their evidence, yet their imagination was lively that they preferred to pledge their oath lo things they knew nothing about than give the prisoner the benefit o any doubt. Alaa, for the frailty of human nature. He analyzed the evidence of those wit nesses who said they saw the men at East wooil that day. Miss Smith was the inos important. She did not at first knov whether it was Dudley or Somerset, am swore at the inquest that he only asfceort. on the lull to relieve settlers on Northern Pacific indemnity lands. The conference report on the deficient} appropriation bill w.is presented and ilained hy .Mr. Hale, lie said thai the senate conterrcos hud yielded the French spoliation amendment because ot the per sistency of the but, subject would be taken up at anolhcrscssinn. The report wns agreed to. The conference re- port on the I arid bill was then presented and read al length. After a lengthy debate thu report W.T .aid aside informally without action The concurrent resolution on the final ad- iournment to d.iy was presenled and re ferreil to tlic linance c'linniitti e.
