ANDROSCOGGIN COUNTY.
State vs. Charles K. Donnell.

In April 1913, Charies K. Donnell was charged with the mur-
der of Emma Hall of Sabattusu The deceased came to her
death by reasons of blood poisoning following an illegal opera-
tion alleged to have been done by the respondent, Donnell. The
evidence for the State connecting the respondent with the crime
consisted of testimony of the mother of the deceased and an
alleged dying declaration of the deceased. When the case was
presented in Court, however, the testimony of the mother
proved to be vague and indefinite, rendered so in part, no
doubt, by reason of her own guilty connection with the case,
and the dying declaration of the deceased was not properly
taken. Some hope was held out to the deceased that an opera-
tion might save her life and the dying declaration was taken
before the operation instead of after it was performed. When
it had become apparent that the operation was ineffectual, no
attempt was made to obtain a confirmation or a new declaration.

The evidence was offered in Court, but the circumstances
did not satisfy the presiding justice that it was properly admis-
sible and upon its exclusion, it appeared to the prosecuting
officers that it would be futile to continue the case further.
The Court was then notified that the State did not desire to
prosecute the case and under the instruction of the Court, the
jury found a verdict of not guilty.

The case was conducted by W. H. Hines, County Attorney
and the attorney general. The respondent was defended by
Hon. Henry W. Oakes and Tascus Atwood.

State vs. Perley F. Sawyer.

In April 191 3, one Perley F. Sawyer was arrested, charged
with the murder of Alfred P. Monahan at Lewiston. Investi-

152 ATTORNEY GENERAL's REPORT.

gation showed that the respondent and Alfred P. Monahan
and John Stevens met about noon on the day of the alleged
crime, took lunch together and afterwards went to the room
of Monahan for the purpose of drinking. Monahan took a
drink from a bottle which the respondent produced but neither
the respondent or Stevens drank from the bottle. Almost im-
mediately Monahan began to complain of severe pains and
within a short time died.

Analysis of the contents of the stomach disclosed a large
amount of potassium cyanide and it was learned later that the
respondent had purchased some of this drug at one of the drug
stores in the city of Lewisiton. At the trial, however, he
claimed to have purchased it at the deceased's request for
the purpose of cleaning clothes. Both the deceased and Sawyer
had been drinking during the day and had one or more bottles
of liquor which they had hidden in the cellar of the store where
they were working.

There was no apparent motive for the crime and it was sug-
gested by the defense that the bottles had become mixed up
in some manner or that the deceased had committed suicide,
not wanting to join the army in which he had just enlisted.
After deliberation the jury brought in a verdict of not guilty.

The case for the State was conducted by W. H. Hines, county
attorney and the attorney general. The respondent was repre-
sented by Hon. Frank A. Morey.

State vs. Ernest Gagne.

In October 1913, Ernest Gagne was indicted for the crime
of manslaughter. He was charged with the killing of William
J. DriscoU in Lewiston on the 4th day of October 191 3. It
