The Sandusky Star Journal (Newspaper) - September 1, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio THE HOME PAPER, TODAY'S NEWS TODAY fk THE SANDUSKY STAR-JOURNAL. YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 1, 191 LAST EDITION Sheriff Is Sent After New Wit- ness and Defense Seems to Be Pleased. HERE'S LATEST PtfOTO OF BEULAH BlNfORD. "OTHER WOMAN" IN VIRGINIA MURDER CASE FATHER'S STORY HAS EfTECTf WOW JURORS Accused Son Lays Head on Table and Weeps as Witness Talks of His Wife, CHESTERFIELD COURT- HOUSE, Sept. mysterious newly "discovered sensation today interrupted the trial of Henry Clay Beattie, jr., for the murder of his wife. For nearly an hour the proceedings were suspended while the lawyers for the defense worked excitedly in an effort to clean up a new line of informa- tion. A mysterious message re- ceived by H. M. Smith, Seattle's chief counsel, shortly after court convened, precipitated the excite- ment. With the court room in a flutter of excitement Smith hurried to a tele- phone. Beattie, his face lit up with agitation talked in whispers to bis father and read the message earnestly. Judge, jury and spectators sat quietly expectant. .After an hour of this intense expec- tancy_J5mith, who bad been hustling TTbout the lawn and the clerk's office returned and relieved the strain by announcing that he bad been unable lo complete his arrangements. The examination of Douglass Beattie was resumed. Later he dispatched the sheriff after a mysterious witness. It seems probable that Henry Clay Beattie himself will hardly be able to take the stand this afternoon as ex- pected. An attack on the testimony of Medlitt was planned today by the prosecution. The credibility of this witness who told of seeing Paul with a shot gun the Sunday before the kill- ing was to be the point of attack. This testimony is the strongest point raised by the defense. Douglass Beattie ruined iis entire testimony with the jury when In a argument 'with Prosecutor Wendenburg he declared he would have destroyed all the blood stains in the auto if he had thought they were to be used against his brother. In anticipation of the prisoner tak- ing the stand in his fight for his life, the biggest crowd that has yet at- tended the..trial managed by devious ways to get out to the little court house. "When court opened more character witnesses were called by the defense giving the accused man a good reputation in preparing for his story on the stand. Seattle's- father spent two hours with his son before court opened this morning planning the remaining moves in-his battle for Jife, Captain Alexander Wright, of the Richmond police force on the stand gave Earnest Medlitt, who testified to seeing Paul -Beattie with a gun on Sunday before -the -killing, a-good rep'-" utation.

C. C. Miller of Lima, who is chief clerk in the office of the state school commission; H. B. Williams, su- perintendent of schools at Sandus- ky; H. Helter, superintendent of schools at Mansfield, and a Pennsylvania educator named Smocker, have been under consid- eration for the place. The trustees spent most of the morning in conference with Attorney General Hogan seeking information regarding their powers and with fiF" gard to questions affecting the new school. They wanted to know if they may make trips to inspect nor- j mal schools of other states and the attorney held that they may do so. There is some defect in the title of the land offered by the citizens of Bowling Green for the school and the help of the attorney general was so- licited in clearing this up. A conference was also held with the state board of health with regard to action by that body calling upon the city of Bowling Green to provide an adequate sewerage, system for the school. The trustees conferred with Govern- or Harmon to find out if he had any choice for president. He told them he had none and that he depended upon them to select the right kind of i: _ _ -It aWeloped 'FH'dry aflernoon the great'coast storm of Bowling Green danger of DodSe was 5n the new school which it was decided vessei.

The city also wants the state to assume the expense of in- stalling a proper sewerage system tor the use of the institution. MR. AJfD MKS.

Unless the city comes to time quickly and agrees to do its full part the state may decide to locate the in- stitution in some other town. On ac- count of this trouble, the trustees, will probably not elect a president for the institution today, as intended, but defer the matter for a month. Gov.

Jackson, broker, in the' Iroquois hotel, returned a verdict of! guilty of murder in the second degree j this morning. The punishment is 20 years to life1 imprisonment. The jury went out at yesterday afternoon. Broker Jackson was killed a weeks ago, robbery being the apparent purpose of the murder. He was in his room at the hotel and Paul Geidel is alleged to have entered by a fire es- cape. It is believed that, he expected: to obtain a large amount, of money as Jackson was supposed to carry large' sums with him. However, he did not secure much and had to put up a fight i with the victim. He was arrester) shortly after the murder and made a' confession which the police used against him in the trial. Attorneys for young Geidel sum- moned physicians who testfied in the trial that Jackson might have died of failure. Following 'the verdict Geidel was immediately remanded until next Tuesday when the court will pro- nounce sentence. No appeal is ex- pected. Superintendent Williams declared himself in favor of liberal expenditure. of monev for school purposes. He said the matter of rr.akins; this provision should be left to the legislature from year to year.
