alias Harry Howard, the Oswego county murderer, who was electrocuted

with a curry comb, and spoke to him about it. White flew into a rage and,
grabbing a shovel, swung it over his head to strike Mathews. The shovel
struck a rafter and gave Mathews a chance to save himself by knocking White
down. For this White vowed to have vengeance.

White to make a full confession of the crime and then went on the stand

at the post-mortem examination. He says that White was in perfect physical
condition and that there was nothing to indicate that he was in the least
insane. He said that the brain was perfectly developed, with the exception
of the gray matter, which was scarce. He said that the brain resembled
that of a sheep more than of a human being.
