Plttsflcld, JInss.. July 2'!. The gov
ernment rested this afternoon In the
trial of liobott S. Kosbuigh for tho
alleged killing of his sister May. The
(inclusion was as sudden as It was
unexpected. It being known that there
were witnesses held In reserve, a num
ber having been summoned by the
prosecution only yesterday. The de
fendant's Junior counsel set fotth the
facts upon which the defense Is based,
Theie wns n sensation nt the opening
of the com t, when Judge Stevens or
dered the expulsion a d exclusion of
the representatives of several New
Yoik papers on account of the publica
tion of certain nrtlcles lelailve to the
alleged episode nt the grave of May
Fosburgh. This episode occuried on
Katuiday last, and tho court described
It as "the grossest attack on the ad
ministration of justice."
The chief witness for the govern
ment todav was John Nicholson, head
of the police depaitment of I'lalnlleld.
Officer Klyiin, who searched the Fos
burgh premises on the morning of the
tragedy, nnd who had found the single
shoe which hns figured as a pot lion of
the government's chain of evidence,
wns nlso n witness today. At the
conclusion of the gnvotninont'n case
this afternoon the counsel for the de
fense suggested to the couit that tho
case be dismissed fiom lack of proper
evidence. Judge Stevens, however,
stated that he was not leady to en
teit.iln such a motion.
Was Ho Thoughtless?
Cnptnln William (5. White, of the
Plttslleld police, who had not finished
his testimony when court adjoin nod
yesterday, was the Hist witness called
to the stand this moinlng. Mr. Cros'jy,
for tho piosouition, asked him a fiues
tlon about the Identity of the single
shoe found In the Fosbiiigh house, and
then tinned him over to Mr. Jo.vnoi.
At the beginning of his cio-s.enni-Inatlou
ho said he could not lenieinber
who had accompanied him Into the
cellar of tho Kobuigh hoiiho when he
was making his Investigations, nor
could he recall Just what he had done
at seveml points. Ho said that ho had
believed the story of the family about
the burclars at the time It was fhst
told to him.
The questions of the attorney fni the
defense seemed to disclose stub, n lack
of memoiy and absence of thoughtful
noss on the pan of the officer at the
time he was In the Fosbuigh house fn.it
Mr, Joyner, In com so of the pioceed
lngs, afiked: "You weie then In a vety
thoughtless mood, weie you not""
Captain White replied that he did not
think he had been. He tald that he
could not tell whether or not. any one
besides Dr. Sc holleld and Unbeit Fox
burgh, the defendant, weie present
with him when Kobeit told the story
of the tinged.v. Ho did not "Just 10
uiombei" In what loom they weie when
defendant told the stmy. Me admitted
thai It might have been In the loom
where the body of May Fosbuigh la.
He said that ho could not describe the
fuinltuic in the loom.
Policeman Daniel Flynn, of FIUs-
fleld, who aided Captain White in the
scinch of tho Fosbuigh piemlsos, gave
testimony much the sanio as that
given by his stipeiloi. lie said that
tho defendant had denied that the
shoe found in tho house belonged to
him. Mi. Fotdmigh had said that
theie was not a button shoe In tho
house. Tho shoo was dry. Witness
did not see any broken castors on any
of tho beds.
The defense objected to questions us
to whether marks found on the mof
of the plaz.a had been theie a month,
nnd to nu attempt to Intiodiice some
photogiaphs of the Intoilor of tho
house. The objections weie sustained
by the couit In each Instance.
When asked concerning the weather
conditions, the witness aid that pinb
nbly theio wore some stais on the
night of Aug. 29, but that It was qulto
dink, "It was n cloudy night," he
said, "and tho next da.v was a blight
one." He was questioned again con
teinlng the shoe found In he house,
and snld there was nothing about tho
nppeainnco of It to attract attention.
Mis. V. T. Castle, who owned tho
house tu which the Fosbuighs lived
last August, testified that on Oct. 1
she washed nil marks off the piazza.
William It. tliirduer, assistant man
ager of tho Plitsfleld Hlectilc Light
company, whoso home was neaily op
posltc the Fosbuigh house, said that
ho heard cries of "Police" about 1.20
o'clock on tho morning on which May
Fnshuigh was killed, but that they
came from a direction opposite the
Fosbuigh house. He looked out of a
window, but eveiythlng scented quiet.
The Star Witness.
John Nicholson, chief of pollc of
Plttslleld and the lending witness for
tho piosecutlon, was then culled. He
testified In a cnieful. ilcllboiato unci
inodeiutely flow manner lin, iiolil ihc
attention of evoty peison In ilie couit
Thu pait which he took In the Hug-
edy began when he reached tho Fos
buigh house between 5 and 0 o'clock on
the moinlng or August 21. The first
poisons ho met were the defendant and
Ills brother James, who nt once told
him about the burglais, and began to
tall his attention to the marks and
footpilnts ubout tho place.
"They pointed out two footprints
partlculnily," nlcl the witness. "I
noticed that tho heols of the shoes had
been piosscd nbuut one Inch Into the
ground with the toes pointed towaid
the house. My notice also was called
to nnothor mark nbnutfour feet further
ninth, which had the appearance of a
footstep. 1 examined the plnzza post
It had sevornl finger marks and one
hand mark on It. The latter was very
distinct. The defendant accompanied
mo to the balcony and pointed to Its
ratling, from which I noticed the dew
had been icmovcd nt the north nnd
rnutli ends. We examined the loot to
goth'T. It had a mnrk on It ns If some
one had stopped thete. It wns about
this time that the defendant i elated to
me what had happened "
The chief then told the story of the
shnotlns: ns It had been repeated fre
quently In com. so of tho tilnl.
"After the defendant told me this,"
ho continued, "we visited the dark
hallway, nnd theie we found :t hole In
the wall. The defondnnt had suggest
ed that two bullets had been fired and
thought that one might lie Imbedded
In the wall. 1 could llnd no bullet
there. Wc went to a. closet In the
vacant loom and there on a trunk tray
I saw n diamond sunburst, stickpin
nnd watch chain.
"My next visit to the Fosburgh house
wns at 11 o'clock on tho same morning.
On the way In Jniuos Fosbuigh handed
me n bullet which, he snld, ho had
found In a bin can."
He telntcd the elder Mr. Fosburrfi's
description of the alleged attack made
by luiigbirs upon hlin, and thou told
of finding a large number nf m.itcehs
on different occasions In the vacant
room In the attic, o lithe stairs, bal
cony and on the first floor.
Dr. Koch Says the Chief Peril Is in
tho Sputum and Advocates Iso
lation of Tubercular Patients
By J.xelnie Wire from The Avwclatfd I'rtM.
London, July 2::. Tho featiuc of to
dnj's session of the congioss on tubei
tulosls was Dr. Itobeit Koch's paper,
which was listened to with the deepest
Intel est. Dining his addi ess the noted
Herman piofessor said his expeiltuents
had eatlslled him that human tuber
culosis and bovine tuberculosis woio
radically different dlsetise.and that cut
tle could not be Infected with human
tuboioiilnsK The counter-proposition
that human bolnss weie not liable to
Infection fiom bovine tiiboiculosls was
hinder to piove, tho doctor said, owing
to the diniculty of expeilinentlng up
on human subjects; but he was satis
fied Unit this was the case, and be
recited nt length post-mot tern evidence
suppoi ting this belief.
Dr. Koch said that If this point was
conceded, It remained to demolish ale
the source of contagion. Continuing,
the doctor snld that human Immunity
to bovine Infection disposed of the be
lief nf Infection thiougli dairy products
and ho eonsldeied this source of danger
so slight as to bo tinwoi thy of precau
tionary moasuies. Heiedlty was, also,
un unimportant factor In the transmis
sion of tuberculosis, though tho con
ti.uy had long been believed.
Dr. Km h said the souice of danger
of contagion lay In the sputum of con
sumptive patients, and that a remedy
wns to bo found In tho law preventing
the consumptive lioin strowintr con
tagion about lilin. Several methods
to this end weie advisable, said the
doctor, the suiest being Isolation in
This was Impiac ticablo. but he
strongly urged the establishment of
special consumptive hospitals and tho
obllgatoiy notification of the author
ities of such cases.
Dr. Koch highly complimented Dr.
Heiniann M. Ulggs, (pathologist and
doctor of tho bacteriological labora
tories of tho New Yoik city health de
p.utinent) upon the lepiesslvo mcas
uies concerning tuberculosis taken In
New Yoik city, wheie, he said, tho
nioitnllty from tuhou ulosls had been
rdueod ?,:, per cent, since iKSfl, and ice.
onmiended the s.vstem oiganlzed by Dr.
Kiggs In Now Yoik to tho study and
Imitation of all inuiili In.illtlos. Dr.
Koch closed his leniKiks by express
ing his belief that the ultimate stamp
ing out of tuberculosis was possible.

TI10 Post 111 the morning, ns a lcsult
of the extensive Inauliles based upon
the udmlial's dispatch, will say tu
"Admiral Schley pi onuses to ask an
Investigation at the hands of a nnvul
court of luquliy, then to sue IlistoiJuu
Mnclay for libel. Ills action Is the
seiiuel to the developments during the
past week, when the entlie countty
has been sthicd by the publication of
the unexampled abuse poured out up
on him In the third volume of Maclay's
History of the United States Navy,
In which publication Schley Is said to
have run awny In 'catlff flight.' and Is,
In addition, denounced as a covvaid, a
cur and n tialtor."
The Schloy court of Inquiry will un
doubtedly bo one of the most cclo
buited cases In the naval or military
hlstoiy of tho country. The lank of
the olllceis Involved In the controvcisy
and tho Intense public feeling which
has boon aroused, will combine to give
to the Investigation a dramatic Inter
est. Nothing lias occuircd In Wash
ington for many yeais that will cont
inue with It.
Tho appointment of a court of lu
miliy Is expected to be made by Soc
ietal y hong, though It would bo with
in tho powei of the piesldent to make
selections If he those. This is baldly
lllel to occur, however. Admit al
Schley's lettei, asking fot the ap
pointment of the com 1, will bo ad
