MISCELLANEOUS COURT K0UT1NE, ETC.
Joseph Dimoy's trial for the murder of
Special Officer Miller, in Allegheny City,
was resumed in the Oyer and Terminer
Court yesterday. Dimmy's mother sat be
side him and evinced more interest in the
testimony than did her son, who seemed to
get considerable enjoyment ont of some
phases of the testimony. There seemed to
be a disposition to get amusement out of the
case notwithstanding the solemn position
the prisoner is in, and -when some of the
audience laughed at a portion of Bobert
Wagner's testimony. Judge Collier had the
room cleared of spectators.
The firet witness yesterday was Dr. Foster,
who testified to having maan the post mortem
on the body of Miller, and that death was due
to a cun shot wound.
Officer Dawson testified to assisting in the
arrest ot the prisoner and that he stated on the
way to the lockup that the officer followed him
ana he shot him, and would have shot more it
he could. . ,
Officer Wallace testified that at the hospital
Sillier said that he was standing four feet away
from Dimmy and was shot while tr ing to pur
suade him to go home.
Captain Wilson. Officer Glenn and Officer
Temme, of Allegheny, all testihcd to the arrest
and identified the revolver taken from the per
son of Dimmy. The Commonwealth then
rested. , , A.
Thomas M. Marshall. Esq., opened for tho
defense. He did not deny tne shooting, but he
held that Dimmy was mentallv imbecile and
had been so from birth: that Miller had been
the aggressor, striking the prisoner with a
handy-bilh, and that the shooting was in self
defense; that when he shot at Officer Fitz
gerald, who had chasea him, the prisoner
thought it was Miller who was still chasing
Blanche Stanton was the first witness who
testified for the defense. She said she saw
Officer Miller and Dimmy en Beech street. The
officer had said something to Mrs. Yaw. He
acted as thouirh he was drank. She siw Officer
Miller draw a revolver and follow Dimmy
across the street, but did not see the shooting.
Robert Wayne saw Miller on Beech street:
saw Miller and a man named Jones. The offi
cer and Dimmy had some words and he saw the
officer puU his hand out of his pocket and
strike the prisoner a blow which made him
stagger. He saw Miller pull something from
his fcket that shined, and the witness ran be
hind a telegraph pole, afraid of being shot; saw
Dimmy reach for a revolver.
John M. Jones testified that he was at the
rink and had started home; met Dimmv on
Beech street. About half way np the street
they saw Officer Miller; he had stopped some
ladies. Dimmy and Miller had seme words
and he saw something shining in Miller's
hands. Witness started to run down Beech
street; looked back and heatd a shot fired
and saw Dimmy stagger. Then he heard
another shot fired, alterward saw Dimmy ar
rested, and told the officer that Miller had
fired first. Then he was arrested and held as a
witness. When arrested he was handcuffed to
Dimmy and heard the prisoner tell the officer,
in answer to a question, that be had to shoot.
Mrs. Eliza Yaw testified that while on Beech
street returning from the festival. Officer
Miller requested to be allowed to go home
with her, but she refused him. and soon after
heard the shots, but thought they were rail
road caps and paid no attention to them.
Mrs. Zetta Jefferson and Charles Harris cor
roborated the testimony of Mrs. Yaw.
Miss Adore Harris saw Officer Miller at the
festival; was talking to him, and he was "tight
or full.'" She smellcd liquor on his breath.
She described his apparel. On her way home
through the park she heard two shots and saw
two men run past her, hut could not recognize
them; subsequently heard two more shots fired
and heard some one sav, "Catch him."
Wm Lews saw Miller at the festival and
knew he was drunk, having seen him stagger;
beard him say something to Miss Harris and
went up to him to stop him, as he, witness, was
with Miss Harris and wanted to protect her
from insult. He did not know Miller -was an
Adjourned until 9:30 this morning.

"Why Wevttnshonse Claims a Superiority
Over the Fdison Company.
The "Westinghouse Electrio Company, on
"Wednesday evening, gained the control of
the United States Electric Light Company,
and the Edison apparently is once more
forced to take a back seat.
This concern is one of the oldest electric
light companies in the country, and it has
been the strongest rival the Edison compa
ny had until Westinghouse came into the
Some of their old patents are said to be of
very great value and superior to anything
in the electric light business. This waS one
of the reasons why "Westinghouse and Edi
son were both anxious to get control of them.
There are also some valuable patents held
bv the United States people in conjunction
with the Edison company. On account of
this deal, however, the right of these pat
ents will go into the hands of "Westinghouse.
"The United States Electric Company,"
said Mr. Humbird, the Assistant General
Manager of the "Westinghouse Company,
yesterday, "was in fact the balancing power
between Edison and "Westinghouse, and as
we have acquired their additional ad
vantages of the balance, onr company is
now the strongest in the world."
"How will the Bates decision affect your
system ot electric lighting; is it true that it
gives Edison some advantages over yon?"
"No, not in the least The decision has
only a bearing in the direction that in
America a patent does not necessarily ex
pire with tne shortest term of the prior
foreign patent Yon understand by this
that an American patent is not supposed to
exDire as long as the foreign patent holds
good. "We are as favorably affected bv that
decision as the Edison company, and if they
say they gained a little more benefit, they
are simply prevaricating."
