Br. Paddock Gives Evidence That
Members of Family Said Thoy

Said to Have Objected to Autopsy.
Defenso Gains a Point The Pistol
Alleged to Have Boon Used by

m- 1 ucluslvo W; ire from 'the Av,m ialcil Vttv,
Pitlsflold, Mass, July in In. Pad
dock, Plttstleld medical examiner, le
sumed his testimony at the opening of
today's session of tho tilal of Robeit
Stew ait Fosbutgh for shooting his sls

Fosbuigh family, It will be i"nioin
bciod, alleged that the girl was shot by
a burglar, but their conflicting stoiies
nroused the suspicions of the pollio and
the arrest of oung t'osbnrgh followed.
The doctor dcscilbed In gieatoi detail
than cstoiday the manner in which
the membeiH of the rosbiugh family
weie diessed on the night when the
shooting occurred. Ho said that oung
Jnmes PosbuiEh met him downstahs,
and later came to the upper looms. Dr.
Paddock asked him If he had scon any
burglars. James said that ho hod not.
Dr. Taddock testified th it It was veiy
daik In tho house and mound it. He
adud Roatrlce Pos'buigh If she had
seen any burglars, and she said that
she had not. She told him that siie had
lioen standing behind May when the
shot was ilied. and that she had row
Immediately to the faitlur end ot ihe
loom to tin n on the eleetili light Sin
saw no one save the members of the
Di. Paddock next told of the lujuiles
alleged to have been sustained at the
hands of bin glare by the Fosburghs,
father and son. He said that Mr. 1'os.
birgh. the eldei, was injmed on the
knee, had a lib i racked and was much
dlsligured about the head. The jouuger
man had a bad contusion on tho neck.
Objected to an Autopsy.
The doctor told of a second xlslt to
the Kosbuigh house made nt s M o doc k
In tho following foionoon. The famllv,
ho said, weio at bieakfast He an
nounced to them that ho had come to
hold an autopsy. Robeit Poshuigh, tho
defendant, mosc fiom tho table and
objected to this proceeding. His father
lntenuptcd, saying: "Don't lnteifeio.
Let the law tnko Its couisc."
At this point the icpoit of Dr. Pad
dock as medical examiner of the au
topsy on tho body or Miss rosbiugh
waF put In as evidence.
Frank E. PIcrson, a haidwaio mci
diant. testified that in June. 1000, Rob
ert Kosbingh, tho defendant, wanted to
buy a revolver, and that at his request
Mr. Pleison oulcrcd a blue, Hatiiiigton
F. Rich. SJ-ralibio, ceutio-llio hammei
le.ss one. "When this came, howovei,
Mr. Fosburgh decided to take a nickel
one of exactly the same make and size
as the bluo one. Tho blue levoher was
shown In the couit mid caitiidges ur
dcied by tho defendant at the time ho
bought tho pistol weio also lundiiced.
Chief Nicholson was called meiel.v to
testify thnt tests had been made with
the blue levoher In hl.s pieseuce.
After evidence by William 11. Rose,
of Camhildgcport, a salenian for n Ros
ton Ilicaims company, had beon Intto
duccd ti show tlie make of the fatal
bullet, a lecess was taken. At tho dose
of tlie iccess, Judgo Stevens announced
that the touit would adjoin u fiom I
o'clock this nfteinoon till Manila
The couit announced caily In the day
that evidence bcailng upon tho dis
tance at which powder stains would bo
mado upon certain fabilcs by tho dlfc
chrgo of a lev oh or may bo admitted
If tlie piosecutlon show that the evi
dence Is competent. This Is taken to
mean that tho government must show
what kind of a lev oh or was used In
the killing of May Fosbuigli and must
piove that exactly tho same kind of
pistol and ammunition was used in tlie
tests. As the pistol alleged to have been
used by Robeit S. Fosburgh on Ihe
night that his sister was killed has not
been found, It Is thought that the slate
may have some dltliiulty lu mooting
the court's condition.

Tlie sccietarv says that It would be
manifestly Imptoper to have a hlstoiy
containing such Intempetate languago
used as a text book for tho cadets. Hr
will Infoi ni both Commander AValn

In this connection the secietaiy sas
that the proofs of the entlic volume

the thhd chapter, that relating to the
mobilization of tlie lleets. which con
