EVE'S DEATH He Was Cook at Monty Lewis' House at Blairmore Girl Gives Pretty Strong Evidence as to Money Murdered Woman Possessed (Sntcial to The Herald.) Macleod, Alia., May Crown closed its case this morning. Later evidence did not strengthent the ease John Vroczuk, Phillip's father-in-l.aw told Mike's story or why he left Frank, and it was con- trary to the facts. William Reiily, of Airdrie, said the there was no blood on vhem then The knife was slipped into a ci'ack in a shelf in the kitchen in plain sight of anyone in the kitchen. The Chink gave very clear evidence and the ef- fort of the delenco t'o break it down was not effective. He was severely tested as to his memory but couk account for everything asked him. prisoner told him a still different story. N John Pelesky, lived witli Mike and did not see him Tuesday night but lie was asleep in the shack Wednesday morning. He never saw him again. A. W Lang's evidence contradicted the Chinaman's and wrecked the Crown's case id" to'the time Kike was at Monty Lewis's. The defence will call but few wit- nesses. Macleod, May net of evi- dence is weaving, closer around Mike Phillips in his trial for the murder of Monty Lewis. Today, the Crown established the fact that the prisoner had been at the house on Monday night and practically all-Nfciy Tuesday up until seven o'clock Tuesday even- ing. The most damaging evidence was that of Mali Sing, Monty Lewis' cook, who testified that Phillips was at the. house on Sunday night, on Monday and Tuesday. He had cooked meals for him and Monty and had seen them eat after six o'clock Tues- day evening. After that lie got some cigars in Blairmore for Monty and Phillips was there when he returned. Monty then told him that he n.cd not come back at eleven o'clock as usual as Phillips was going to stay all night. He identified the prisoner positively as the man who was at the houses He identified the knife ant hatchet, .saying he had used them bot that evening getting supper am There bcbyj a attendance at e inept ing of the Directors of the Agricultural Society last night those present constituted themselves into a committee to deal with the business on hand, the result to submitted for ratification at the next general meeting.

He was on the stand or one hour and forty minutes. TJKO painters, Harry Sellers and H. who were working on new house that -was being built for Monty gave in evidence that Phillips Was at the House Tuesday afternoon, about half- past three and had been- talking to them in the new house which he de- scribed as "his lady's house." Monty was seen by them that afternoon, also. Phillips wore gray clothes and a fe- dora hat. The question of the .hat arose from the fact that when arrest- ed hi? a black imitation fur cap which no witness yet-has identified as being worn by him pre- vious, to the murder.
