JUDGE WILCOX SPEAKS ON
CAPTAIN OF THE ROSAMOND
Says He Needs BackVoue Result
of Assault With Weapon
Case of Colored Sailor
"You know, on shipboard when the
srars become loose, they usually put
In little pieces of wood to hold them
firm nnd that 1b known as 'fishing.'
That Is what I believe Is needed by tlieflcak somewhere. The pumps were set
captain. -of the four-masted schooner
, 'Itosaniond to hold up his backbone,
l'erhaps ho should get n new one1 alto
gether. A man who cannot preserve
order aboard his ship better than that,
needs something to give h,ls backbone
strength. I fine you $50 and costs."
This Is what Judge Wilcox said to
cabin boy Brown of the Rosamond this
morning when the case of assault with
a weapon on Cook Bannister had been
finished. The captain of the ship was
In the room at the time and, naturally,
he turned tour or five different hues
In as many seconds.
It will be remembered that Brown
was arrested yesterday forenoon on the
charge of assault with a deadly weapon
It seems that lie and the cook had had
some tioublc and both had taken up
weapons, the cook to Drotcct himself.
The second mate, who happened lo.be
near the galley when the trouble was
at Its height, took the revolver away
from the man Brown nnd threw It
. overboard. After the cook had been
let up from the deck whero he had
been floored by the cabin boy, he went
up to the police station and lodged a
complaint which resulted In the arrest
The prosecution put on three wit
nesses, all ot whom told substantially
the same story. They all put down
Brown as the aggressor. In fact,
, Drown himself was his own worst wit
T ness. aBnntstcr was the first man put
on the, stand. He said that Brown had
gone off the ship for a day or two
without permission nnd bad left him
all the work to do. Vhen he returned
he (Bannister) did not say auythtng
but went on with the 'work. Drown
assumed :i threatening attitude and
then, going outside, got a bottle, re
turned nnd liKide a pass at him with It.
He then knocked the bottle out of
Brown's hand, grabbed a poker to pro
tect himself and stood on 'the defen
sive. Brown went out of the galley
ngnln and soon returned with a revol
ver. Before he knew It, he was struck
with the weapon nnd floored. Then
when he was down on the deck. Brown
dealt him another blow over the eye.
Mueller, one of the teamen aboard,
was til enext to take the stand. "Vhen
icqucsted to raise his right hand In
order to be sworn, he refused, saying
that his religion prevented his swear
ing before God. Judge Wilcox was
equal to the emergency nnd put the
regular oath, leaving cut tho latter
part. Mueller then took his seat, con
tented. The witness said that he had
seen Drown rush to the galley with n
revolver and bad sees lum strike the
rook with It. The second mate hail
then run up aud thrown the weapon
Mate Johnson told substantially the
same story as the other two witnesses.
The defense put on Second Mate Nel
son who said that he saw Ilannlst'
chasing Brown Instead of vice versa
nnd that the cook had a long bntcher
knife In one hand and a stove poker lu
the other. He first said that he had
seen Brown with a revolver In his
hand but changed this and said thaw
the first mate had told him he had seen
it. In addition to this, he said that he
had picked tho revolver up off the deck
and had not taken it out of Brown's
Brown himself testified to the trou
ble between himself nnd the cook, and
remarked thnt when he was In the
galley at the beginning of the troublo,
ho had made up his mind he would not
go out of the place although tho cook
hud told him to do so. He Intended
to resist. He then claimed that tho
cook had como nt him with n knlfo aud
that he hnd run after a tetnlver to
protect himself. He mid he did strlko

the cook but he was not sure whether
or no It was with the revolver.
The testimony In court showed thai
there Is serious trouble brewing aboard
the Rosamond and that the men arc
split up Into two sides. Judge Wilcox
evidently recognized this fact from the
lecture he delivered the defendant af
ter fining him and In which he referred
to the captain.
