The defendante rested, and the State introduced but little teBtíroony in rebuttal. J. E. Kobson, superintendent of the city water-works at the time ol the murder of Dr. Haddock, was called by the State and made a statement which will be va-uable in the Arensdorf case, that ever reaches a new trial. He taw Arensdorf m Junk's saloon the night of the niurder, saw him coine out with the crowd, and watched him go west with the men vho went to the corner of Fourtn and Water streets. This testimony disposes of Arenedorf s alibi and supplies the missing link in the evidence conneeting him with the crime. , Sioux City, Ia., Sept. 17.- The evidence in the Haddock niurder case was all in Thursdav, and counRel began their addresses to Shê ' jury.
