TSPECXU. TELEGRAM TO IDE DISPATCH. 1
Hew York, November 14. The Brook
lyn and Cincinnati clubs were admitted into
the National League to-day. It was a com-
' plete knock out for the Association men, yet
they come up to the scratch smiling, and say
that they will be found at the same old
Etand next year and will be as prosperous
as hereto lore. bile reports ol such a
change had been flying around thick and
fast for seTeral days, the rupture, if there
B was to be any, was not expected to occur so
m suddenly, let the result shows that while
F the Association was at a deadlock Messrs.
R-"Byrne and Stem were quietly perfecting
their -mans for a transfer. It aDDeared to
If them their only alternative, as St. Louis,
..Louisville, Columbus and the Athletics
promised to set it out indefinitely before they
would move an inch. Brooklyn, Cincinnati,
S Kansas City and Baltimore declared likewise.
There conld be no compromise; in tact, none
was suggested. Ballot after ballot was taken,
with no signs of either side weakening.
Finally, and late in the afternoon, two docu
ments were handed to Chairman Von der Ahe.
They were the resignations of Brooklyn and
i Cincinnati. The fact rather startled their old
allies Kansas City and Baltimore. Both clubs
contend that they had no idea of such an oc
curence. The Kansas City ana Baltimore dele
gates at once retired, leaving the Athletics,
Columbus, St Louis and Louisville in full pos
session of the room. It was not a very pleasant
position to be placed in, and at 6 o'clock they
adjourned, to meet at 10 olclock to-morrow
'-morning. What the outcome will be it is diffi
cult to determine. Mr. Von der Horst, who is
reported to be the real owner of the Baltimore
club, said that the defection hit his pocket
pretty heavy and he was prepared to quit The
Athletic representatives appear to be very little
concerned about the matter. Treasurer Whlt
taker says that as far as Cincinnati is concerned
he is very glad that that city is out. He was
sorry, however, that Brooklyn had deserted
Vra.Ii BE VS LINE.
"Will there be an Association? '
"Why certainly. We have already one r
two applications. I won't mention names, bnt
yon can depend upon it that they are good
cities. I don't apprehend that Kansas City and
Baltimore will desert us; if they do this all
B right, we'll still go on."
J Manager Sharsig says he has always expected
such a thing and that it was a creat shame.
& "Mark my words," said he to a Dispatch re
ft, porter, "there will be some trouble to arise out
? Of this matter." The Hon. J. J. O'Neill, of the
EL Lonis club, said he was greatly pleased at
r the way affairs had taken. He hoped that the
,v Association wonld fill up its ranks with clubs
who would not attempt to rule or ruin. Both
Mr. Byrne and Mr. Stern received the most
i hearty congratulations when the news first
flashed through the corridors that they had
been admitted to the League. Mr. Byrne said
' lie disliked very much to leave the organiza
tion, but he was compelled to.
"They have given out repeatedly that they
L could do without the Brooklyn club. K owlet's
see if they can do it."
' The impression among the best informed
t persons of the national game is that the Asso
ciation will remain as it is provided it will
not have to recruit too strongly. Then it may
come down to an amalgamation with the
Brotherhood. But even with the loss of either
', the Kansas City or Baltimore, it is believed
that three cities can be selected to make the
'. organization fairly strong. The delegates to
the League convention worked up to such a
late hour Wednesday night that they did not
get around to the hotel very early this morn
ing. Three or four important changes in the
constitution were effected on Wednesday
night, and when the convention assembled at
noon to-day the consideration of the constitu
tion was resumed.
SALES SYSTEM ABOLISHED.
' Section 5, which read, "Releases of players
from contract or reservation, and future con
i tracts with such players shall be regulated and
governed by the national agreement of pro
fessional baseball clubs and the League leeis
: lation made in pursuance thereof," was
amended so as to provide that "no player,
' without the consent of the club with which he
has a contract or reservation, can negotiate
with any other club for his services, but if said
consent is given said player may negotiate with
any club for bis services and receive money
consideration therefor, which may be accepted
by the releasing club." This action does away
with the system of sales over which there has
recently been such a cry. Section 36, which
, Stated that "a manager or player, whose con
f tract has become void by reason of his club's
S disbanding, withdrawing from or losing its
I membership in the Leagne, may engage for
j the remainder of the season with any other
I club immediately after the Leagne secretary's
1 NOTICE OF SUCH DISBANDMENT,
wiinurawai or loss oi mcmDersnip," was cut
out and another section inserted which pro
vides that in case of such withdrawal of a
.club, the players under contract or reservation
shall be considered as released therefrom, but
that any negotiation for the services of any
player must be made subject to transfer to any
hother club desiccated bv the Leairne.
In section 44, which states that four umpires
jxnut be selected by the Leagne, the number
j, was increased to six. The League was in.
, session about five hours, and during that time
fc did good work. Beside admitting Brooklyn
r and Cincinnati, they entirely obliterated the
classification system, and made the percentage
f to visiting clubs 40 per cent instead of 25. Sec
tions SO, 31 and 32, relating to classification, was
I stricken from the constitution. Section 9 (1)
' has been amended to read that each club
elected to membership shall within SO days
after official notice of sneb election execute
and deliver nnto the President of the League,
as trnstee of other League clubs, a bond with
approved sureties, in the sum ol 25,000 (in
stead of $5,000), to tie paid in annual instal
lments of not less than $1,000, payable during
the month af May.
ABOUT TIE GAMES.
Section 59, which says that a tie or draw
game or games prevented by rain shall be
r plaed off on the same grounds on the first suc
I 'ceeding tine day (not counting Sundays, days
" previously agreed upon for championship games
between said clubs, or days when rain renders
' playing impossible) within the dates of the
.' same schedule series between such clubs, if
? any remain open; and if not, such game may be
played off on any open date on cither grounds,
jlias been changed to read: "Games postponed

sent of two-thirds of the League clubs."
f. Section 6i which says that a visiting club
shall be paid the sum of 12 cents for each and
every person admitted on the groun -is, has
been changed to 40 iter cent of the cate re
ceipts. The written applications of Brooklyn
and Cincinnati, made out in due constitutional
form, were presented and referred to the

The revising of rules 10 to 16 inclusive, relative
to fines, a fund for trainers and jockeys, to the
disallowance of post bookmaking by a person
having a horse running in the race, and to
ruling off persons for corrupt practices, was
referred to a committee, but as that body could
aeree in no carticular, the old rules were al
lowed to remain intact. The other changes
made in the rules are as follows:

leges shall be made with any association of
bookmakers," was stricken out
Rule No. 4 was changed so that in future con

The old rule read '"time of start."

whole amount of the purse."

so that no association shall receive any orallow

where or on any course to run on its course.
The last sentence of this rule reads: "In
stakes, this rule to go into effect from and after
January 1. 18S9," was stricken out.
Rule No. 21 was amended so that stake en
tries need not be accompanied by racing
Rule No. S7 relating to liabilities for stakes
and forfeits, was changed so that a subscriber
to a sweepstakes, who transfers an entry and
the transfer defaults, shall be entitled to a for
feit order as dne to himself, should he pay snch
stakes or forfeit.
Rule No. 41 was changed to read: "If the
time for the first race is not fixed by the pro
gramme it shall be indicated on the dial." The
words "half an hour in advance" were stricken
Rule No. 40 was changed so that the owner or
trainer of a horse must consent to the decla
ration of the jockey to carry legal over-weigbt.
Rule No. 5, defining a starter, now reads:
Every horse whose jockey has weighted out

and is liable for the whole stake. If the horse
is exercised after he is weighted out, all books
on the race are void, and additional time be
fore the race shall be granted by the judges.
In auctions or Paris mntuals the bets stand,
but the money belonging shall be refunded.
Rule No. 23 was amended to read: Anyone
ruled off for fraud shall stand ruled off for a
Rule 92, section A, relating to stake penalties,
was stricken out; so was section C, relating to
beaten and maiden allowances.
Rule 129, so that jockeys, grooms and stable
boys found on the betting grounds may be
fined as well as suspended or ruled off.
Rule 140 was stricken out and a new rule
adopted in its place. It reads: If an inelligible

bets on snch a race shall be declared off.

two or more horses start in a race owned
wholly or in part by the same person, they
shall be coupled and sold as one horse in all

He Is Full of Hope Abont the Brotherhood's
Fred Pfeffer, one of the leaders of the Broth
erhood movement, dropped quietly into the
city yesterday on his way from Chicago to the
East. Fred did not wear the look of the "op
pressed" or "down-trodden," but, on the con
trary, looked as gay and fashionable as a lord.
He was enthusiastic abont the Brotherhood's
prospects, and expressed his surprise that
Pittsburg money was not so plentiful tor the
scheme as it is in other cities. His mission to
this city was to sign Tener and Gumbert for
the Chicago Brotherhood club. He said:
"I've signed Tener, and Gumbert will sign in
a few days."
Pfeffer was asked his opinion about the
League granting Sutcliffe's claim of $250 and
reforming the sales system. He said:
"Well, doesn't that look funny on the part of
the League? However, it is too late now for
them to do anything."
"Wasn't Sutcliffe's grievance the only one
complained of to the League?"
"Well, yes, but we could have made other
complaints. However, we are out to go it
alone, and after awhile, if the other organiza
tions see fit to notice them, we mav do so. Our
players won't desert us. In fact, I would pity
a deserter when he appeared la public with
"Are you and others not deserters by leaving
the League without ceremony, after pledging
yourselves to stay, and if faith is broken in one
instance is it not likely to be broken again?"
"Not at alL We left the League because of
unfair treatment, and we pledged ourselves one
to another that we would stick together and try
to improve our lot Our case is different from
a man leaving the League. At any rate I don't
think that the players will refuse to stick to
gether. We have any amount of money in
Chicago, and we expect a touch fight there."
Ed Hanlon did not succeed'yesterdav in dis
posing of all the club stock, as expected. He
expects, however, that everything will be all
right in a few days. Al Johnson is expected
here to-day and it is anticipated that the 120,000
will be almost raised. Hanlon also stated that
the League Is too late in remedying evils now.

NEW York, November It William O'Con

Hanlao, ex-champion of the world, are in town.
Hanlan says he is anxious to have O'Connor
and Searle row a race in America.
"To prove wnat I think of him," said the ex
champion, pointing. at O'Connor with pride, "I
am prepared to back the youngster against
Searle for any amount from $5,000 upward. I
will give Searle $5,000 to come here and row
O'Connor on any fair course, and guarantee
him $10,000 if he wins. With O'Connor as a
partner, I will make a double scull match
against any two men in the world for any
amount of money. If anybody wants to accept
this offer, 1 am prepared to make a deposit at
once to bind the match. I will also make a de
posit for a match between Searle and O'Con
nor. The Canadian people are not losing faith
in O'Connor. They know that be was beaten
on his merits, but are prepared to back him
O'Connor says: "It's the ambition of my life
to meet Searle again, and I will leave nothing
undone to accomplish my object. He is a first
class sculler, but I feel certain that I can show
Searle over the course."

San Fbancisco. November It The chal

by Carroll, and he has requested the directors
of the California Club to put up a purse of
$2,500 for McAuliffe and himself to-battle-for.
It is the general opinion here that the club
will put up 2,500 for the rivals to meet, but will
not allow McAuliffe 500 for expenses, as they
think the champion's demand exorbitant, but
they may allow half that amount. Carroll's
backer states if McAuliffe and Carroll agree to
contend for the purse in the California Athletic

Inspector McKelvey, of the Southside,
last night was reviewing the condition of

have on the Southside. The next census
will show a population there of 75,000, and
of these nine-tenths are honest, hard work
ing men who have no time and less inclina
tion to commit crime. For the last year all
the robberies that were committed on the
Southside have been petty thfevings, and
$500 would amply cover the entire amount
There is of course some drunkenness occa
sionally when the men get paid off, but we
are pretty thoroughly free from the graver
class of crimes, more so in fact than in any

When the police went on duty in the

Despite the efforts to prevent the family
oi the executed murderer Hillman from
seeing the features of their dead, a olever
ruse was played on the officers in charge of
the grave, and while they were dining the
body was removed and kept in the home of
the deceased's father over night. The scenes
at the wake of the resurrected man were sad
rsrSCIAI.,TELIOBAJf TO THE DISPATCH-l
Philadelphia, November 14. The
distorted face, the ghastly tear in the neck,
and the cold and stiff form of Joseph "W.
Hillman, the murderer who was so bung
lingly executed at "Woodbury yesterday
have been viewed by the family, despite the
efforts of Sheriff Bidgeway to bury Hillman
without his friends again looking on his
face.' The body was disinterred as soon as
the Deuuty Sheriffs left the grave, "Wednes
nesday afternoon, and was carried into the
house, where it was guarded throughout
the entire night by the murderer's family.
"When the limp form of Hillman was
taken from the gallows it was placedjn the
coffin and given into the charge of Under
taker Jeffries. As the undertaker started
for the grave, under the apple tree in his
father's yard, two deputy sheriff', "William
Smith and James Carr, followed in a car
riage directly in the rear of the hearse.
NO! A SIGHT ALLOWED.
When the body arrived at the grave the
family requested that the coffin be opened,
but the deputy sheriffs would not permit it.
Before the body was half covered the family
left the grave and returned to the house,
followed by the officers. As the deputies
entered the house Lawyer Harris invited
them to accompany him to Blackwoodtown
and partake of dinner at the almshouse.
They accepted, and, after bidding goodby to
the lamily, the officers, undertaker and Mr.
Harris drove away through the drenching

the dead man's brother, and the aged father
of the murderer seized a shovel each, and
out in the pouring rain commenced digging
the mud from the grave of the son and
brother. "When the box containing the
coffin was reached, assisted by two other
male relatives of the dead man,
THE FOUB LIFTED THE BODT
to the surface of the ground and carried it
into the house. No time was lost in un
screwing the lid of the coffin, and soon the
body of the murderer was disclosed to view.
"While the deputies were enjoying their
dinner, a few miles away, satisfied that their
work was well executed, the family of Hill
man were bending over his coffin, weeping
hysterically and "calling for their boy to
speak to them again. As the lid was lifted
from the coffin, showing the distorted face of
her boy, Hrs.Hillman uttered a scream, and
throwing herself over the coffin, rested her
head on the boy's face, and sobbing, kissed
the cold forehead and called to him to speak
to her. The father and brother of Hillman
stood by, crying bitterly, while the wife of
the executed mau and his sister bent over
the foot of the coffin and sobbed aloud. Sev
eral other near relatives of Hillman viewed
the ghastly corpse.
THE PACE "WAS BLACE,
and wore an expression of intense agony.
The gash in his throat made by the slipping
of the rope was still fresh and bloody.
Around the neck of the dead man could be
distinctly seen a thin, blue circle, the im
print of the rope as the man strangled to
death. The sight nearly drove his mother
wild, and for hours she bung over the comn,
until she was prostrated with grief.
The body was kept in the house during
the entire night, closely guarded by the
family, who, one and all, sat near the coffin.
This morning the lid was again placed on
the coffin, and the body lowered into the
grave in the presence of the family. A re
quest of a doctor to hold a post-mortem ex
amination on the body of Hillman has
caused the old father of the murderer much
anxiety. He fears that someone will at
tempt to steal his boy's body. Any such
WILL PEOVE DISASTBOTJS,
as Mr. Hillman has an old army musket,
heavily loaded with large shot, which he
says he will empty into anyone caught lurk
ing around his boy's grave. The aged father

Lawyer Harry Scovel, to whom Hillman,
on the morning of his execution, gave a
proof of his photograph, mounted on paste
board, to give to his wife, sent the picture
to-day to the person for whom it was in
tended. On the back of the picture is writ
ted: "From Joseph "W. Hillman to his
dear wife. November 13, 1889."

One of the most unique and original en

appointed Consul of the United States at
Dumferline, Scotland. The banquet will
take place at Martinelli's, 130 Fifth avenue,
New York, on the evening of the 21st in

the congratulations of his co-workers from
Maine to California, and acknowledge their
Mr. Beid is over 70 years of age, and laid

To be Devoted to missionary Work by the
Methodist Chnrcb The Foreign
Fields Will Receive the
Kansas City, November 14. The sec
ond day's .session of the General Missionary
Committee of the Methodist Church was de
voted to the discussion of the committee's
finances. Bev. Dr. Sandford Hunt, Treas
urer, reports that the receipts for the year
ended October 31, 1889, had been 31,130,137,
or 5129,556 more than the previous year. It
took two hours of brisk discussion to decide
how much money the committee would need
lor the work during the coming year.
It was finally decided that appropriations
should be made as follows: For home and
foreign missions, $1,120,000; for incideutal
and annuities, $31,775; lor the contingent
fund, $25,000; for office expenses, 825,000;
for publications, 510,000: for Dallas, Ore.,
detective land claims, 8,000; for Upper
Sandusky, 52,000. Total 51,225,775.
The proportion of division of the mission
ary fund was then taken up. The home and
foreign mission fields both had their advo
cates. The first motion was that the fund
should be divided equally, but amendments
followed in quick succession till five were
before the committee at the same time. The
discussion occupied the remainder of the
morning session. At the evening session of
the committee it was decided to divide the
appropriation on the basis of 45 per cent for
the home and 55 per cent for the foreign

The Opera Honse Owners Bobmlt Their

The Board of Viewers yesterday morning
took a stereoscopic view of the claims pre
sented by those who said their property,
leases and interests would be damaged by
the Diamond street widening. The term
stereoscopic was adopted by one of the mem

peared double in many cases. E. D. Wilt,
the lessee of the Grand Opera House, put in
a total claim of 5180,027 79, as follows:
Bent to accrue to Opera House Company,
555,027 79;, improvement on house to bind
lease, 535,000; value of lease and loss of
business, 575,000; damages to be paid dra
matic companies, 515,000. Mr. Wilt stated
that he had been offered 570,000 for his lease
and had refused it. He said that there was
no other building in the city which he
could secure for his purposes.
William Bader, butcher, stall 114 Dia

Cook, the man who was arrested on Fifth
avenue yesterday with a lot of watches and
jewelry he was trying to sell. The police be

three or four, and that they have robbed a
country store somewhere in this part of the
None of the rest of the gang have been ap
prehended as yet. Cook is lame in the right
leg, and is dressed in an entire new outfit,
the coat and vest being of a cheap brown
wooly material and the hat a soft olue felt
with a red, blue and yellow striped lining
and a picture of a female in the center. No
name or marks of any kind can be found on
the clothes or stuff found on Cook to lead to
his identification, but the police expect,
through the telegrams sent out and the de

about him to-day.
THE ELKS' HALL.
The Order Is Thinking of Pnttlnc Up a Fine
The Order of Elks in this city is intent
upon building a fine hall of its own for use
of the brethren, and as an investment. At
a regular communication of Lodge No. 11
held at the end of last month, various plans
were discussed, but none have as vet been
adopted. One similar to that of the Masonic
Hall Association will most probably be de
Another idea is to establish a joint stock
company with shares at 5100 each, the order
itself to take 50 shares or more. This could
easily be done, as No. 11 has now over $6,000
in the reserve fund. Quincy Bobinson, a
well-known member ot the order in Pitts
bnrg, says that although the question of site
has not yet been considered, it will not be
long before one is chosen, and the brethren
will have a home of their own.

Stand in flis Own Defense.

All of His Desperate Dee'ds Performed Whilo
HE ALWAIS CARRIED TWO RET0LTERS.
1 Leading Question Prom the Prosecstiiig Attorney
Holzhay, Michigan's notorious bandit,
was' placed upon the witness stand by his at
torneys yesterday, and gave a history of his
remarkable career. He stated that he was
hurt by falling from a horse, bnd since then
has been subject to strange spells. It was
during these attacks that the robberies and
murders were committed.
Bessemeb, Mich., November 14. Eei
mund Holzhay, or, as he is popularly
known, "Black Bart, the lone highway
man," made a remarkable statement to-day,
which was at once J confession and a de
fense. Holzhay was put on the stand the
first thing this morning and in a reluctant
manner told the history of his life.
"I was twenty-three years old the second
of last month," he began. "I was born in
Germany, in the southern part, and my
parents still live there. All the schoolingl
ever had was in the ol3 country. I never
attended school in America, I came to the
United States seven years ago, and not hav
ing any trade I went to work at my uncle's
planing mill in Green Bay, Wis. I worked
there about two years, and then went to
work on the Oconto river, where I stayed
about three years. Becoming
TIEED OP THIS LIFE,
and desiring a change, I went out West, I
stopped at Portland, Ore., for a short time,
and then went up to the Puget Sound conn
try, where I worked in a mill about five
months. I spent abont a month riding
around the country on horseback, and was
in the West about eight months altogether,
then came back and went to work again on
the Oconto river, and worked there about a
year and half."
In answer to questions put by his at
torney, Holzhay stated that while irt Wash
ington Territory, he was injured by his
horse falling on him, that he laid uncon
scious for some time afterward, and that
while his health previous to this accident
bad been good, since then it had been bad.
He conld not describe just how it affected
him, but it affected his whole system, and
particularly his head.
Ordinarily he felt quite good, but these
bad spells would come over him and would
last probably a day and sometimes more.
He said that during these spells he felt
strange, but could not describe the feeling.
ALL A BLANK.
During such spells his actions and any
incidents or occurrences taking place at
such time were all a blank afterward.
Nearly all last winter was spent in the
woods working, but he came out one time to
see a Dr. Williams, in Chicago, who is con
nected with Dr. Lucas' institute for the
treatment ot nervous diseases. About a
year and a half ago he went to see a Dr.
Palmer, in Green Bay, who treated him for
The spells came on him sometimes quite
unexpectedly, and he always had to look
out for himself, and at times he felt an irre
sistible impulse to do something bad or des
perate. He had several of these spells since
his capture, and probably had a dozen
or more since he was injured. Holzhay
said he remembered the day he was arrested
and who arrested him.
He could not tell why he held up the
stage. He held it up, and that was all he
knew about it. A fellow prisoner of
Holzhay named Burns has been engaged the
past month in writing a life of the robber
and has incorporated into the narrative sev
eral deeds of daring claimed to have been
committed by Holzhay while in the Western
A PARTIAL DENIAL.
In the cross-examination Prosecuting At
torney Howell mentioned several of these
instances where Holzhay was alleged to have
held up several men, and asked him as to
the truth or falsity of the stories. Holzhay
said they were all untrue and originated in
the brain of Novelist Burns.
In regard to the holding up of the Wis
consin Central and Milwaukee and North
ern trains, Holzhay said he felt the spell
about thesame as at the time of the Goge
bic stage robbery, and did not remember
any oi the incidents connected with the af
fair. He stated that in all these instances
where shooting was commenced, it appeared
to clear his brain and brought him to a re
alization ef what he was doing, and he took
to. the woods afterward to avoid being cap
tured. Holzhay did not remember who was in
the Gogebic stage, did not remember seeing
either Fleischbein or the driver, and failed
to identify the watch and pocketbook said
to have belonged to Fleischbein. He
claimed that he had never seen Fleischbein's
name on the pocketbook till hjs attention
was directed to it by Mr. Powell.
A PEBTINEST QUZSTIOK.
Attorney Flannlgan flustrated the prison
er somewhat, when he said: "Holzhay, why
did you carry two guns, knowing that you
were liable to have one of those spells at any
time, and shoot somebody? When you felt
one of these spells coming on why didn't
you leave these guns somewhere until after
Holzhay appeared somewhat staggered by
the directness of the question, and he re
plied: "I carried the revolvers to protect
myself from wild animals in the woods, and
did not like to leave them anywhere, as I
might not find them again."
"Is it necessary for a man to carry two
IN its first stages, canlbe successfully
checked by the prompt use of Ayers
Cherry Pectoral. Even in the later
periods of that disease, the cough is
wonderfully relieved by this medicine.
"I have usedAyer's Cherry Pectoral
with the best effect in my practice.
Thi3 wonderful preparation once saved
my life. I had a constant cough, night
sweats, was greatly reduced In flesh,
and given up by my physician. One
bottle and a half of the Pectoral cured
me." A. J. Eidson, M. D., Middleton,
" Several years ago I was severely ill.
Tho doctors said I was in consumption,
nnd that they could do nothing for me,
but advised me, as -a last resort, to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. After taking
this medicine two or three months I
was cured, and my health remains good
to the present day." James Birchard,
" Several years ago, on a passage home
from California, by water, I contracted
so severe a cold that for some days I
was confined to my state-room, and a
physician on board considered my Ufa
In danger. Happening to have a bottle
of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, I used it
freely, and my lunra were soon restored
to a healthy condition. Since then I
have invariably recommended this prep
aration." J. B. Chandler, Junction, Va.

"Yes, sirvsaid Holzhay. ""I think it is."
This reply seemed to satisfy the prosecu
tion, as Holzhay was" removed from the
stand, and shortly after returned to jail.
Holzhay'f examination lasted about two
hours. Holzhay was the only witness called
for the defense, and when he had concluded
the defense rested.
