commit Whentho buggy bringing Cronln drove up the street toward the cottage I weakened and began to realize that there might be struggle so I wont out through tho back room ana down the rear I stood back of the house trembling with horror as I heard tho sounds of the struggle frota OSulllvans story In regard to being in the back yard at the time of the killing is corroborated by the testimony of Carlson and of the Gorman washer who saw Cronln enter the Both of them testified at the trial that some one was standing at the rear of tho house at tho time of the mur ic continuing his story OSulllvan says that after remaining outside of tho house for undecided what to he wont In and found Crouln ap parently on the floor of the front The walls of the room wore spat tered with blood and
