The second murder trial of the week was
begun in the Superior Court yesterday
morning at 10 o'clock. The case was well
known to the public. The woman who
was charged with the crime was notori
ous for her many 111-deeds, the evidence
was to eome extent’conflicting, and a
hard-fought legal battle was expected. It
w(s these facts, doubtless, that drew to
the court room the comparatively large
number of spectators, who came early and
stayed late. The prisoner entered the
court room In company with her counsel,
Messrs. Shelby Myrlck and Richard M.
beater. The interests of the state were
represented in the person of Solicitor Gen
eral W. W. Osborne.
Jhe important witnesses for the state
were Dan Glover. Gus Thompson and
Owens Martin, the two lat*r having been
in the room with the woman and James
Harris when the fatal shots were fired.
Coroner Goette was also a witness for
the state, but testified merely as 10 the

the witness. Again and again he placed

him and the woman, which was with diffi

Interlude did not serve to change Harris'
luck, for he continued to be ag unfortu
nate as he had been from the first.
On the ten spot of hearts, which had
been turned in a way that contributed
much -to bis ill-luck, Harris heaped some
of bis displeasure. As he lost one of the
bet* he made he picked this card from
the deck and stated that if it turned
again he would tear it to pieces. Then he
shoved his last remaining chip* on the
table. Ten of hearts was turned. Harris
lost and his anger was again aroused.
"It’s a horse deck, anyhow," he said, and
tore the in two.
“What do you mean by tearing my
cards?” asked Signora.
"Oh, it's a horse deck. 1 ” repeated Har

that he thought he bad been successful.
6otne of the other men were with Harris
in another room, while he had Signora irk
the room in which she slept. He heard a
noise outside the room iloor and Harris
appeared with a knife in his hand. As he
stepped across the threshold and st.irt.el
to advance Signora she tired, but the
witness threw ujS her arm and so deflect
ed her aim that the bullet spent itself
harmlessly in the ceiling. She fired again
as Harris continued to advance, and yet
again. The third bullet took effect.
The defendant was placed on the starwi
to make a statement in her own behalf.
She corrobereted the story told by Smalls
in oil essential particulars, stating that
Harris was advancing upon her with a
knife or some weapon she believed to be
a knife when she tired. When the got out
of the way and crawled unver the al*

cape the anger of any of the friends of
Harris who might come up and not to
avoid arrest. She had intended, she .said,
to give herself up as soon, as the officers
arrived and had surrendered willingly
when called upon to do so.
The evidence had been concluded before
2 o'clock and Judge Falliganr directed a
recess until 4 in the afternoon, when the.
arguments were made*. In his opening ar
gument Solicitor General Osborne con

and no knife has been found.

usual fine style. He ridiculed the con
