CROWD MADE HUPP!
Sensational Testimony in the
A NOTABLE DAY IN COURT
The Defendaut on the Stand. How Messrs.
Ilolt and Jone* Obtained Gauindlls
Statement. Marrlrtgc at the
Cok-nel Talbb and his alble young tis
sociale in the Ashby ..ose, Mr. Franeis
F. Causey, left the court-s?oim last ev?
ening apparently thoroughly satisfied
with thework of the day. The cautious
manner in- which these two gentlemen
have proee-.ded since the first witness
wus placed on the stand, coupled with
their experience in important legal
transactions and their knowledge (.flaw,
has kept the crowd of spectators on tip?
toe of ain-ticipation. Time and again
has it .been predicteU that they would,
spring something startling b f,.re the
close of the trial, and rathe;- than miss
the feast men have suffered themseiv.s
to be bu'mped and thumped and smiled
when th-. ir corns were trampled upen
Yesterday, after a day of serene pro?
ceedings, it came ar.di the spectators
gulped it down In chunks to !>-. digesten
When icaciurt convened in the morning
a nu miber of witnesses were called to
offset the testimony of the previous day
concerning the question of vision. But i
except in a few cases a vein of doubt
iun through the statements. Some were
helpful to Mr. Ashby, however, and were
uttered with a candor which could leave
mo doubt es to their sincerity. But as
much may be said for those whose
words seemed to be against him. All
this, however, was ?ul'l. It hall l>een
heard before, and no one, not even the j
lawyers, perhaps, deemed it of Very
great value, in view of the fact that I
the jurors themselves had Ib^en on the
ground and koke>J up and down- the
namr. w lane.
The announcement that Mr. Ashby
would testify broke the mono-tony. All
day long he> had sat "at Colonel TttWi's
back and. quietly listenetl while others
told their stories. Now "he was to tell
his. and as he stepped to the witn ss'
chair tlve spe. tators took a Long breath.
Mr. Ashlby admitted writing the letters
read with his deposition. He said, lieiw
ever, that Mr. Biridgeforth had written
to hi'm -first concerning the disposition
of his beat, hewse, wagon- and other
property, and the packing of his gcoUs.
Colonel Tabb thin ask 11 him what he
meant by his advke to Bridgeforth not
to allow any one "to pull his leg," "that
he was ail right," and that "she wouldn't
harm him" and other similar expres?
sions The witness th<in replied that he
had learned that Ciip-tain Bonnevell was
going to sue Mr. Bridgeforth, and as a
friend, he felt it his duty to- notify him
j of t'he fact. That was what be m-.ant
' 'by these utterances. Mr. Ashby said
that he hud no ilitea who the woman that
h. saw enter the store with Mr. Bri-lge
if'.-rth was, indeed he Ia,d no stress upon
the circumstance. Mr. Bridgeforth, he
said, had U right to go into the store
whenever he pleased, as he was one of
its owners. He regarded him as an in?
nocent man up to the time he made his
deposition, when his opinion underwent
a change. Scfcne time after the deposi?
tion was taken Mr. Ashlby says he met
Mr. Bridgeforth in Newport News. In
February, 1896, the two men conversed
together on Twenty-thkd street. Mr.
Bridgeforth told him that he loved him
as he did a chillil and a moment later
j added that he had no money, not enough
to 'buy a dinner. They went into
Vk-Ke.n's saloon and Bridge::oilh want?
ed to drink.. Next they visited Barton's
Theatre, from which they went to Ma
gee's saloon, where Mr. Bridgeforth said
that he- desired to write and askvlii for
pen and ink. Ashby went out. hut soon
returned and he and Bridgeforth drank
together. They then walked over to
Mrs. Hudson's house c-n Twenty-sixth
street, where several Sadies tame out
on the street and asked Mr. Ashlby who
the nitin with him was. The next plae
they visited was the courthouse, where
he was inviteU' by Bridgeforth. to go
into the 'back yard. whe:e Bridgeforth
produced a paper and told him that he
would -huve to sign it. He declined and
they went to a hotel Cor dinner. Mr.
Ashby. Mr. Bridgeforth still with him,
then called on a man m-amel M Cn.lom
who wanted a lilesk. Mr. Bridgeforth,
he said, wanted to drink and asked hi':n
to go into a back room. After return?
ing to the hotel Bridgeforth wanted
him to go to t'he jail yurd again but
instead of doing so he went to Wash?
ington avenue. Again, he says, he was
asked to sign some paper, and again he
refused. Mr. .Ashby then walked o-ver
to Mr. Lash's furniture store. Mr.
?Bril'lsreforth followed him and usked Mr.
Lash if he and Mr. Ashlby might go into
his private office. Mr. Ashby, htoiwever,
in order to escape from, Mr. Bridgeforth.
went out by a back door and walked
down to West avenue. But Mr. Bridge?
forth foun'i him, he says, and again told
him that he would have to sign the pa?
per. He succeeded in getting away and
went into the house of Mr. ElShvards and
later wrote a note to Mr. Brittingham
telling him about the days' events. Mr.
lAShlby dismissed the testimony of Offi?
cer Giddings, of Newport News, by say?
ing that he did not have the conversa?
tion sworn toby thiit gentleman. He
had talked lo him once, but that was all.
(He had heen- with Mr. Bridgeforth for
several years in t'he furniture store and
knvW'him -well enough to recognize him.
When Mr. Ashby steppetii from the
Stand a recess was ordered and it was
nearly 8 o'clock before court reconvened.
Mear.'ti-me word had gone forth that the
longed for sensation was near at band.
And so it was. It was cleverly planned
and: nicely timed, and Mr. Tabb?the
colonel surrendered his commission, sev.
e:nl days ago?and !llr. Causey, having
to all intents and purposes appropriated
for the occasion Mr. Collier's famous
simile, called Detective James, of Nor?
folk, to the stand. The witness sali
that some time ago Mr. Bridgeforth
employed him to secure evidence against
peop-le who had- testified in the divorce
suit. For undertaking this he was to
receive $2<i, anil1 in the event of his suc?
ceeding he was to have $100. Mr, James
addressed himself to the task with all
the ingenuity of the craft. But the .le
tettive failed to detect and finally threw
the case up.
But it was the pan played by Messrs.
Walter Holt and Booker Jones that af
fc'rded the greatest Interest. After Mr.
James' failure they were engaged, ac?
cording to sworn statements, to essay
tr,e work of securing testimony for Mr.
Rrii '.ferefo.: th. Their efforts, however,
were to 'lv aTong lines somewhat difter
ent from those pursued by th. Norfolk
Selective. A paper was pr pared in
which a 'young man named Gammell.
who was a witness in the divorce suit,
was represented as saying that his t s;i
mony. as wel as that of Mr. Ashiby,
ngainst Mr. Bridge forth, was false, and
as compensation for it be had received
a suit of clothes and th , promise i?f
money. Messrs. Holt und Jon-s were to
see Gaffnmell ar.d get him to sign it aim
for their services th v were to receive
$160. The undertaking necessitated a
trip to Williamsburg, which consumed
three days, but up- n reaching that place
th y found only Sir. Gnmimell's ? iothing.
Them they returned to Hamvpton and
produced the paper bearing Gamimell's
Signatur..-. Mr. Bridgeforth asked that
I it be sworn to. but the request was
promptly declined. To settle the ques?
tion, it was referred to Mr. Montague,
who said that an affttibvii wns not nec?
essary. In a few days, however, Mr.
?Montague changed his mind, but the
signature was not sworn to Ivv either
Mr. Holt or air. Jones. In order to se?
cure Mr. Montague's assistance in avoid?
ing mtbarrasslng complications he, it
was said, ^vns ma'le drunk.
Mr. Montague was n- tified by tele?
graph by Judge Mann to be here today
A WORD FOR IWTLL1AIM AND JMARY
A Strong Appeal For That Famous Ed?
Mr EdltOT: Our people have noted
with much regret the recommendation
of the joint committee on Retrenchment
and Reform, in regard to -William and
Mary college. The committee suggests
that it would be wise to dispose of the
property of this eld college, so that no
further appropriation could be demand?
ed from the State.
There are many good reasons why
the property of William and Alary
should not be disposed of. In the tirst
place, William and (Mary is the only
college that can be said to belong to
Tidewater Virginia. The mere fact of an
institution of learning being in a sec?
tion tends to elevate and refine that
section. To do away with IWilllatn and
...Mary would be to give a most serious
?blow to Tidewater Virginia, both in its
moral and intellectual development.
In the second place IWilliam ar.d Mary
is the cheapest collegiate institution in
the State. For the nominal sum of $10
per month, a student promising to
teach, may secure board, lire, light,
washing, and excellent tuition. By
doing away with William and .Mary
you must inevitably deprive 'many poor
boys of an education. This nominal
amount is secured to the student at the
small cost to the State of $10s a year.an
amount which. 1 am sure, compares fa?
vorably with any institution in the
State or country.
In the third place the Inlluenee of
William and Mary is broader than that
of any other institution In the State,
with anything like the average attend?
ance. Boys are trained here to become
teachers, and as teachers, each student
exerts his inlluenee over from fifty to
live hundred school! children. Through
this institution the State exerts its in?
lluenee over our public schools, thereby
moulding the opinions of the very
strength of our country.
In the fourth place. William and
Mary is the only small normal school
in the State. There never was a greater
need than now for normal-trained
teachers. This modern and improved
method of teaching demands special
training for the work, and no state can
progress in education without a first
class training school for teachers. "As
are the teachers, so are the schools."
If we are ill, we refuse to calll the un?
trained physician: if we need legal ad?
vice, we do not seek lawyers not learn?
ed in their profession; if we need spirit?
ual advice, we hesitate to confide in
men not versed in Holy writ. Yet, we
are willing to take our children, the
most precious jewels of our lives, and
commit, not only their lives, but their
very souls to the care of untrained, in?
In the fifth place, to every true Vir?
ginian there is a certain sentiment
about W'illiam and iMary, connected
with no other institution in the State.
Being the oldest college in the South,
it seems almost desecration to think
of disposing of its .-acred property. Its
history is so closely interwoven with the
history of the country that to call a roll
of its alumni is almost to call over the
great men of our nation. Some writer
has said that from this sacred institu?
tion have gone forth "nearly twenty
members of Congress, fifteen United
State.* Senators, seventeen Governors,
thirty-seven judges, a lieutenant gener?
al OWinfield Scott), and other high of?
ficers of the army, two commodores to
the navy, twelve professors, seven
cabinet officers, the chief draughtsman
and author of the constitution. Edmund
Randolph: the most eminent chief jus?
tice. John IMarshaM, and three Presi?
dents of the United States." Senator
Hoar, of Massachusetts, said: "That
sacred institution has conferred on the
country a hundr.-d fold more benefits
than any other institution or college in
In view of the above facts I cannot
think the committee has acted wisely
in recommending to the State that they
should dispose of the property of this
sacred and ancient institution, 'William
ami Mary college. B.
