The Ouerla-Hemnessey Wemlelde. S
Recorder Gastinel yesterday rendered the fol- a
lowing decision in the above case: is
The State vs. Arthur Guerin. Second District
This case came before me for examination on h
the thirteenth of March, 1s;I. I have given to tt
the law all the attention which its importance and P
gravity requires. The evidence clearly shows i'
that the homicide, and the fact is not denied by t
the defense, was committed by the defendant. it
Arthur Guerin. Every killing is presumed by law -t
to be malicious. This presumption can only be
rebutted by direct evidence. l'he evidence in this
case established three distinct and separate classes
of facts: (
1. The homicide was committed by A. Guerin. or
2. The deceased made threats and menaces of
agairst the life of accused.
3. The threats were followed up by gestures Ii
and acts calculated to inspire Guerin with the rea. it
sortable and sincere apprehension that his life was -t
in danger. to
The facts are clearly and indisputably estab.
lished by the evidence given both in behalf of the
State and the defense.
Under this evidence, I might be deemed fully at
authorized under the law laid down in the case of Cl
the commonwealth of Massachusetts vs. J. T. Sel- cc
fridge, confirmed by the Supreme Court of this ti
State and numerous authorities to ftully discharge to
the accused, but as the court believes that an of. wi
tense of the gravity with which the accused ht
stands charged should be fully investigated by the sic
grand inquest of the parish, and the responsibility Jul
should fall where it properly belongs: I there. me
fore deem it proper for the interest of piblic jis
t:e to comniit the prisoner before the First D a
trict Court for 'te patrsh of Orleans. At the
same time I cannot lose sight of the great coasti
tutional -rA.vi I.,,n ' i , e,.t:,'e a patty to eail,
whatever might be his character, when the prob- "
ability f t his cmvict,ou is not great. I will.
thererore, send the accused before the First i. ve
trict Court for the p ri-h of itrl ans, charge h
with the killing of one DIavid Hennesey-. and wil tt
take tail f, r its appearance before said court ina m
the sum of $50)0 with good and solvent security.
A. GA.TITEL. a
New Orleans. March l,, 1 C. H.
The court adjourned and a few minutes after.
wards Guerin appeared and his nouns 1, who in
offered Mrs. Guerin, mother of the accused, as
ii a securiy to atpp:ar before te i i t District col
Court for trial. Recorder OGrtre'. however, a
dec!,ned accepting M-s. Guerin as security for
l.vur s,,n on the gre u.d., that the judge of the Fist
lt:ýtrict C:,ort oad decied that a winau could
nlt be security in a criiEmlal ( see.. the reason
being that in law a oman i cau,t keep ;n her
Sncstdy the person for wh,,' she w ,uld ite
security, becavmre the decision presumes upon cai
the physical ability of the male sex to keep the
person released on ball In individual custody. r
later in the day Mr. benj O'Connell offered to
bail Guerin, was accepted as security and the y0
prisoner released urtil sLalrno:,d to asswer the
cLhrge of manumlaughter before a jury of his otc
City Mortuary Ieport.

SIsbway ] ere . bl arrest
About two o'clock on naturday morning itted
bit Dr. A. DeBeausset, residmg on Dauphin exaLi
reet, near Coustombouse, on hi return from a
ofeesional visit, was suddenly essailed from
e rear while pasaing the corner of Customhonause Sun
reet on the lower side, by some unknown per- repout
n or persoens, who struck him with some blunt the Mi
strument and felled him to the ground. About an Be ha
ar after some gentlemen passing that way boat,
found Dr. )eBeausset bleeding profasely, and, 4
havirg brought him to consciousness, led him to
his residence, half a block lower down.
The writer called on the doctor yesterday after.
noon aend found him quietly smoking his cigarette 1
and in excellent spirits, although the blow he re
ceived was a severe one, nearly causing his death,
being over the right eye and near the temporal ar
tery. The cut is vertical and about two inches in
let gth. with a horizontal gash about one inch
long about midway, and most have been admin
istered with a powerful blow. What is most
strange is that Dr. DeBeansset has no recollec
tion of seeing or hearing any body around him at
the time. That the telony was the actof a robber
isconclusive from the fact that the contents of
the doctor's pockets were rifled of a small sum of
The Greelma Bond Ia Coara.
It should have been expected that sooner or
Ist. r this propensity would present itself before
the courts of our country. The honor of first a
prominently introducing this prominence before a
magistrate is due to the obstinacy of Henry Jones, c
a colored individual. The history of the article of
feminine (tear and) wear in question illustrates
the dangers of practicing artificial asumptions.
It appears that colored lMara Gaiss-bovaea d
where it i truly regretful we could notsenortim-
lest hers-confirmOng our last philosophical as- I
sertion, for had it been an original African orm, n
or chine-se curve, evidently the suit would not n
have occurred. However, Henry Jones, it is d
stated in Martha's affidavit, found her accomplish- ti
ment on Villere street, between Conti and St. V
Louis, which fact coming to Martha's knowledge,
she immediately claimed her property, which Jones
refused to return, notwithstanding Martha says
she has proved property. She therefore charges
Shylock Jones with this strange and cruel larceny, Il
all against the peace and dignity-dignity espeoc
ia'ly-of the State. It devolves upon Recorder (
(artlnel to solve the problem by invoking the G
wisdom of Solomron, who, however much he must ti
have been acquainted with calico bills, owing to 01
the number of his better halves, might have been H
puzzled to determine the identity of the lost and tl
tLurd article in lihtigation. He may, however, t,
take advice by the following: "It is low ebb with c,
the accuser when such peccadilloes are put to
site!i the bharge." t
