The Jury Disagreed

The case of the state of Washington against Otto Walling, charged with receiving stolen horses came up before a jury in superior court Tuesday. After being out several hours the jury disagreed and was dismissed and the case placed on the docket for trial at some future time, as almost all the jurors empanelled [sic] for this term are now disqualified to hear it. Walling lives down in the vicinity of the country known as “the rocks,” and is alleged to be connected with a band of cattle and horse thieves who have been operating in Washington, Oregon and British Columbia. It is alleged that he received a team of horses and a fine race horse valued at $1000 and was attempting to dispose of them, the animals having been stolen in Umatilla county, Oregon, and brought into Washington. They were recovered by their owners at the time of Walling’s arrest, who has been on bail since then and will be until his next trial. The case attracted considerable notice last winter.

St. John Jottings (Excerpt)

The authorities last Saturday raided the livery barn of Walling brothers in search of a certain blind pig that has strayed here from some other town, presumably Colfax or Spokane.  A dray load of bottles, mostly empty, was seized as evidence. Papers were served on the two Walling boys and Fred Cook, the former charges with allowing the use of their premises for illicit purposes and the latter for selling liquor without a license.  The hearing was set for Tuesday, but the cases have been continued until July 6.  Meanwhile it is a little doubtful, some think, just what Justice Case will do with the bottles and their contents, as the Fourth comes before the trial.

During An Operation

YOUNG WOMAN DIED IN GRAND RAPIDS HOTEL.

DR. C.T. BENNETT, OF DETROIT, OPERATING PHYSICIAN.

CALLED IN A CHAMBERMAID TO ASSIST HIM.

DID IT IN A ROOM THAT WAS SMALL AND DARK.

Doctor Arrested as He Was About to Take a Train for Detroit.

Grand Rapids, Mich., June 24.—(Special.)—Miss E.M. Richards, a domestic whose home is at Middleville, died this afternoon at the Eagle hotel from the effects, it is alleged, of chloroform administered by C.T. Bennett, of Detroit. Dr. Bennett is about 55 years old and has an office at 38 Winder street, Detroit. He says that he is a graduate of the University of Michigan of the class of ’72 and that he is a regular practitioner. For the past eighteen years he has made a regular circuit about the state, making regular visits at Jackson, Coldwater, Adrian, Lapeer, Bay City, Owosso, Iona, Lansing, Marshall and Battle Creek, spending only about half of his time at home. He always made his headquarters in this city at the Eagle hotel. He treated diseases of women as a specialty and advertised extensively. His patients about the state had cards showing just what days in the year he would be at each place. He arrived in this city this morning and had a number of callers. This afternoon about 5 o’clock, just as he was about to pack his grip and leave for home, Miss Richards called. He says he treated her several times before for rectal trouble, once at her home in Middleville and twice in this city. She has been working in Platteville, Wis., since her last visit to him and when she called to-day she complained of feeling worse than ever. He at once decided an operation would be necessary. He had but one little room, a bedroom, in which he received his patients, and Miss Richards was told to lie upon the bed.
