JiTisneaI'OLIS, Fob. 14.- "They aro goiu to hang mei" exclaimod Harry Hayward to his attorneys as they walkod from the court room to the jail last evening, aftor the stato had doclared its testimony In. And it looks that way. If ever a man should be hanged oh circumstautial evidtsnee It would -soem that it should be so in this case. The prosecution clinohed its testiraony yesterday with two witnesses, showing still further the reoklessness with which the in.urderer advanced to his crime. First carne Peter "Vallalie, a hackman, who swore that Harry, previous to the murder, had asked hirn whother h had evor ''dono anything" that prickod his conscionoe; whethër he would drive a hack into Lake Calhoun and drowa its occupant if paid for it. Vallalie said uo, and that endod it. This cotrouoratod both Adry and BHxfc. Tüuu Mrs. Emilia (Joodali?, a trance niediuiu, took the stand and swore that Harry had asked hor to toll Miss Ging that she (Miss Ging) could win at gambling, tho schoine belng to get the girl 10 lend Harry money for that purpose. He told Mrs. Goodalo that ho wouid pay her well, and sho consented, against the advioe of her htisband. Harry then brought the girl to Mrs. Goodale, who told hor as agreed and she loancd Hary money to gamble wich at Cnbago. He went thero and telegraphüd that he had lost. The prosecution then produced Patsy Gariity, who went to Chicago with Harry, and he swore Harry had not lost. Then the state rested and the defense asked an adjournment of court that it might thiuk the case over. What wiil be present.od in Harry's behalf is hard to say, but the case is hopeless as appearances go now.
