Phone 336 Red 431 North Market
Kansas City, May 14.—;John H. At
wood, for the prosecution, followed
Frank Walsh's plea of seven hours
for his client * life with a masterly
address In the Hyde ease of two
hours' duration, In which lie told the
lurv 1 hat every circumstance pointed
to the guilt of the defendant.
Dr. Hyde wept. For the Unit time
since the Swope mystery became pub
lie property, on the last day of the
Ave weeks' trial, the man charged
with poisoning Colonel Swope sat with
streaming eyes, clasping the hands of
his sobbing wife. It. was the first ex
pression of emotion the public has
seen him display.
It was not his own danger, appar
ently, that stirred the accused phy
sician. It was the eloquent appeal
ft. It. Brewster, associate counsel tor
the defense, to the jury, not to wipe
out three lives, on circumstantial evi-
dence—the defendant, the wife an
Brewster's Dramatic Close.
"It's up to you, it's up to you,
Brewster pleaded, his face pale, hi?
lips trembling, his arms outstretched
to I he jury fcnd there he quit. Prob
ably a hundred women were crying
Five of the jurors had wet eyes. Will
lam Crone's face, the juror whose son
was convicted a few years ago on
circumstantial evidence—was a pic
ture of woe.
Virgil Conkling, prosecuting attor-
ney, followed Mr. Brewster at eleven
o'clock. At two o'clock John H. Lucas
began J. A. Heed closed for the
state, finishing by ten o'clock at night,
And then the case went to the Jury.
A Jury Straw.
A straw to show how the wind
blows was seized upon in a story that
two of the jurors were heard discuss-
ing the case of a man who was
"jobbed" through circumstantial evi
It was to be expected that interest
would shift today from the speeches
to the jury and the chances of a ver
diet of acquittal or conviction. The
crowd had supposed, doubtless, that
in the speeches of Frank P. Walsh
and John H. Atwood it had heard the
limit of eloquence. At any rate, all
eyes were upon the jurors, as if to
see into their minds and read the
verdict there; but the spectators soon
changed their attitude.
An Impressive Speech.
A young lawyer, one of the young-
est at the Kansas City bar, of mag
niflcent voice and impressive man-
ner, was beginning his address in the
most noted cas« in which he had been
associated as counsel. It was a care-
ful, well thought out argument. It be
gan. as it might be expected to do,
with reference io the defendant s
wife; it arraigned the state for its
methods in preparing the case with
special prosecutors and it derided the
alleged find Inge of the hired experts,
no two of whom, Mr. Brewster said,
had agreed as to the poison they said
they had found.
Brewster challenged the state to
produce a word of testimony to show-
that poison had been found in deadly
quantities in the body of either Col-
onel Swope or Ohriaman. The state,
he declared, had admitted t.he truth
of the contention by the defense that
clnchonadine might be mistaken for
strychnine, because it had put on wit-
nesses to prove that the quinine Col-
onel Swope used was pure—that It
held no clnchonadine.
Denounced Dr. Vaughan.
The prosecution, Mr. Brewster said,
was demanding a man's life 011 the
guess of Victor Vaughan, a profes-
sional expert witness.
"Did this Vaughan ever testify
against the Royal Baking Powder
Company?" he cried. "No, gentle-
men; he found what his employers
desired found and nothing more."
He reverted to the state's 'hired
counsel'' and pointing a finger at
James A Reed, exclaimed: "FY>r every
drop of blood from this defendant, for
every hour's imprisonment, he will
line his pockets with thousands."

The decision was rendered in the
