The Murder of a Singer. TRIAL CONTINUED. VIENNA, Friday Night.—Before Boitscheff's examination ended, he declared loudly that Eugenie, the child of the deceased, was certainly not his child, and that he had no idea who it's father might be. Boitscheff's counsel proposed that Boitscheff's young wife should be examined, but the Court refused to grant this request, arguing that she had attended the trial two days as a spectator, and therefore could not act as a witness. The witnesses were then called, and marched past before the Court and the accused. One of the first to be called was the Police Prefect's young wife, I A Harp Player from a Cafe, who is only 17 years old. The public was much interested in another witness, Szimon, the father of the murdered girl, who came from Budapest with a Hungarian lawyer. Boitscheff fixed his eyes upon him without betraying the least emotion. Plazolto, the son of a Vienna cheese- monger, who is to give evidence regard- ing the telegrams, is also among the witnesses, and so is the Palace official Auradoli, who witnessed the scenes. Counsel for the accused demanded that the cafe chantant singers who appear as witnesses should not be allowed to take the oath because their business is such as to deprive them of the rights of an honest subject, but the Court made all the witnesses take the oath, except the murdered girl's father. Novelics' young wife refused to be examined. Some of the witnesses first heard confirmed that Boitscheff was on intimate terms with Anna, and without any doubt the father of her child, and that he sometimes gave her small sums of money. Boitscheff denies this, as he denies everything. Other witnesses depose to the effect that Boitscheff's relations with Anna, continued after his marriage, that he often treated her brutally, and that he had more debts than he can ever hope to pay. In yesterday's proceedings several witnesses declared under their oath they knew Boitscheff to have been in Budapest, but he obstinately denied ever having been near the Hungarian capital. He also denied having spent The Night After His Wedding I in Anna. Szimon's room, although the murdered girl's landlady in Sofia. swears he did. Counsel for the defence objected to the examination of Anna's father as a witness, and this is the reason why the Court did not let him take the oath to-day. Three gendarmes often on I guard before the Palace said that Anna. Szimon often came to the Palace, and once spent a whole night outside crying. At daybreak a Palace functionary came out to her and promised to speak to Boitscheff in her behalf. Another gendarme declared he had often seen Boitscheff in civilian's clothes. A Vienna cafe chantant girl said that Anna Szimon was usually poverty stricken, but that she was always decent and respectable, and for this reason found it very difficult to get employment in Bulgaria. The midwife Lewtzka, who assisted at the con- nnement of Anna Szimon, said that all her friends collected money to pay for the girl's most urgent expenses, because her lover did not provide for her. This woman spoke fluently for over an hour, con- firmed many important points of the indictment, and made out a very bad case for Boitscheff. Her daughter Hermine, also a singing girl, was one of Anna Szimon's best friends, and speaks highly of the murdered girl's moral qualities. Mother and daughter recognised the clothes taken off the body of the murdered girl, her little trinkets, and her poltraits.-Daizy News.
