Unpleasant Incident In Court Lobby Yester
day Afternoon Marshal Brown Calls
Attention ol Judge Stanley.
An uupleasant episode in the
precincts of tho Circuit Court,
while it was in sossion yesterday
afternoon, hnd its scquol in con
tempt proceedings against an at
torney at uoon to day.
Judgo Stanloy had excused tho
jury in tho Aldrich case for the
rest of tho day and askod if thero
was nny other matter to be brought
beforo tbo Court.
Marshal A. M. Brown camo
forward, in answer to tho question
saying ho desirod to oall tho at
tention of tbo Court to an occur
rence which took placo yostorday
within hearing of tho Court, As
Frank Davoy, one of the witnesses
in the Aldrioh caso, was loavinu
tho courtroom ho was met by A.
S. Humphreys, an attorney of
that Court, nud some wonts pass
ed between tuora, tho result beinu
that Mr. Humphreys struck Mr
Davey and caused him some in
jury. It seomod to thu Mnrehal
that tho conduct of tbo attorney
at the time, although tho iig
cravation might havo beou great,
was unbecoming aud undiguifiid,
especially when it took place with
in tho hearing if not the sight of
the Court. Ho thought it wa
right that Mr. Humphreys should
bo cited bofnro the Court tp show
uifiiHo whyh'o Hhould not be com
mittod for coutompt of court.
Mr. Humphreys coming forward
said ho had no desiro to Uke. ad
vautpge of techuicalitios, although
Ihp conduct complained of did not
interrupt or disturb tho Court. At
tho sumo time, for his protection
from moro formal proceeding
later, ho would request that tho
Marshal should filo un affidivit "I
complaint. Ho was aware of the
pro'octiou duo to wituos-s in
court, or coming and going thero
from. He regretted that ho should
havo abnegated tho dignity of bin
high offico ns he had, but not that
ho hod struck Mr. Davoy. All h..
woo eorry for, in that regard, was
that be had not Btruck him harder
and oftenor. Ho would plead
guilty to constructive contempt of
oourt if the Marshal would file an
affidavit that would protect him
from further proceedings. From
tho position of liiB otlico ho felt
that ho could not ask for mercy
from tho Court.
Marshal Brown ongaged to
file tho requested affidavit on Mon
Mr. Man key pleaded that, on
account of tho frank admission of
Mr. Humphroys, only a nominal
punishmont would bo suffiuient.
Judgo Stanloy, callinir the
offending attorney to tho bar, said
this was tho first instance of thu
kind happening sinco be hod como
to tbo bench. Ono of tho main
duties of the Court was to protect
its witnesses. In justice to the
respondent, ho had ploasuro in
saying that ho was sorry for what
he, tho roepnndent, had dono in
this enso. Further, Mr. Humph
reys had called his attentiou to
the rnattor that morning, and
npkod that proceedings should bo
taken against him. The
offense was such that lmprison-
raout Bhould bo imposed, but the
frank acknowledgment made by
respondent would bo considered.
It was with groat reluotaneof with
unfeigned sorrow, that tbo Court
adjudged him cuiltv of contemn
and sentenced him to pay n fine of
ono hundred dollars.
Mr. HumpbroyB asked for a
stay of Bontonce for about five
minutos, which was grautod.
