MR. NEWMAN AND HIS NOTES
Witnspses Explain Eub Money Lend
ing Methods in the Police Court.
Mr. Pugli Expressed Ills Lack of De
sire to Listen to the Statements
ot tlie Defendant.
The case of Uyer B Newman, charged
frith being an unlicensed pawnbroker, was
allied tip la tht'pollco court this afternoon
Laywer Fulton, representing the defend
eat, addressed the court In favor of his
motion of Saturday to dismiss the case.
Whereupon U. Pugh objected to further
discussion of a motion already overruled
by the court. Judge Scott sustained Mr.
Fbgb, and the case went over.
Up. John D. Miller, the only witness for
Government, repeated some of his testi
mony of Saturday, to tho effect that he had
borrowed monoy from Newman, giving a
piano and a suit of furniture as security,
and which were taken possession of by
MB. MILLERS PIANO.
According to the testimony ot witnesses
tor the defense the piano and the furniture
were taken from Jliller one year befor
the time stated by him, and were turned
over to an auctioneer to be sold. They were
taken by virtue ot the doed of trust, and not
until the loan was due and not paid.
The books of the firm of auctioneers
were produced to substantiate the testi
mony of tho witnesses for the defense.
After a recess of the court Newman was
called to the stand. He started to testify;
but the court interrupted him to say that
the district attorney was busy.
After a pause Mr. Fugh looked up and
asked the cause of the delay.
"We are waiting for jou," said Mr.
"Go ahead," said Mr. Pugh. "I have
no desire to listen to anything Mr. New
man may say."
Newman tnenrosumed his statement. Ee
testified that ho resided at No. 1202 North
Capitol street, where be did a business of
making loans on real and personal prop
erty. Ho explained bis method of making
Joans, taking either a bill of sale or a deed
ot trust. Ha said be only took posression of
smch property when the loans were de-'
faulted, and by virtue ot the deed of trust.
In addition to the deeds of trust, be took
notes signed by the party to whom the loan
NOT AVERSE TO NOTES.
"Hare you ever taken notes as collateral
Security," asked Lawyer Fulton.
"Tis, sir," replied Newman.
Ha testified that he had been doing busi
ness irlth Miller, probably for four years
past, and had made several loans to him
in that time. Part ot these were repaid,
and part, those made on the property
referred to I. the testimony, were de
faulted. He look no property from Mr.
Miller, exact by virtue ot the deeds ot

- ' WAS ON HIS GUARD.
"I then oddedi 'Mr. Coroner., you Jad
better read the "verdict to Mr. Jefforde.
This wasdone ftwl Mr "Jpffnrrl Ihen
I added; 'Thejverdlct Is lncbmplele. It the
Tury wish to crurmiss Miss Tiaslet Ihc
must say so," or words lo that errect. No
suggestion as to any cbango In the verdict
came from me. In the first place the cor
oner and the Jurymen assented to Mr. Jet
"The .? question then was what words
should be added. Mr. Jeffords suggested
a form,, and I suggested another, the ob
ject ot both being to declare that the Jury
comer not dom &liss nagler. Neither
suggestion was accepted, however. Dr.
Harametl then said suppose we say, 'and
upon the evidence we cannot hold her.'
This "was acceded to by all the 'uryraen,
Mr. Jeffords and myself.
"The coroner then suggested that the
verdict would have to be rewritten. De
siring to spare Miss Flagler the continued
anxiety and fearing a disturbance might
ensue among the large crowd, composed
mainly ot colored people outside the sta
tion bouse If tho verdict were known, I then
suggested to the coroner that be should
add the words proposed by him and ac
cepted by all to the verdict.
"He sat down at the table and himself
wrote the words referred to. The Jurymen
were asked twice explicitly whether or not
they consented to the verdict in Its amended
shape and all assented audibly. There
was not the slightest expression of dissent.
Mlts Flagler was then removed from the
room by a rear door, aud I came out ot
the front door. Up to the time that Miss
Flagler went out there were absolutely no
other persons Jn the rooms than tho6c
whom I haye named.
HOW THE CASE STANDS.
"I will add that public mbapprehenslon
as lo the verdict is very great, as It docs
not constitute the slightest ob
stacle to the consideration by one or any
number of grand jurlesof Miss Flagler's
case. It Is of Importance to her in the fol
lowing renpect only that a body elf .un
prejudiced citizens holding an Inquest at
the usual time have declared that lu their
oplnlonshe was gulltlessof any crime."
"This finding has a morel effect which
she Is pntilled to, and whh b I do not Intend
that she ehall lot. Technically the ver
dict is defective, but it is admitted by all
the Jurj men that their intention was todls
charge her from custody."
"When will Miss Flagler return?" asked
the Evening Times reporter.
"As soo nas Jier physical condition will
allow her to dojb," answered the lawyer,
probably within a few days."
"Will she attempt to evade the authori
ties?" was asked.
"Not at all. She will give ball to appear
and answer any charge which may be
brought against her. O'i tlie other baud,
she is extremely anxious to hav e the whole
affair tborojghly Investigated."
It is currently reported to-day that the
shooting of young Gtcen by Miss Flagler
was not the firs ttlnie that tho young lady
has engaged in piMol practice, with small
colored boys as targets.
It now appears that five days before
Miss Flagler's firal rhots at the Green
lad, she dlrcharged her revolver at an
other crowd of boys rear the p'ace where
Green was killed. Fortunately, however,
this fhot was not fo effective as the one
fired at Green, as It.mlcEed the object of
Its aim and struck the ground. It Is raid.
however, ou this occasion, that Miss Flagler
informed the boys that if they returned he
would shoot them. It Is rot krown whether
or not Ernest Green was among the crowd
of boys fhe 6hot at on Mocday.bat rome of
his companions with blm the day he was
Uled were at the Flagler residence the
day Miss Bettie made her threat.
It is said that interested colored people
who have heard these rumors will give
them a thoro Investigation and reiiort
to the Indignation meeting which it is
said will be held to night. They may, if
truo, also go a long way toward 'nfluenc
