Application for New Trial Made in
Kenny Murder Case Number of
Irregularities Alleged by De
Application for a new trial In the
Kenny murder ease was made ester
day by the convicted man's counsel,
Attorneys John J. Aluiphy, J. J. Man
ning and M. P Conry
Kenny, it will be remembered was
eonvicted last Saturday of man
slaughter for killing Martin Healey,
in Archbild, In April last. The Jury
stood seven for acquittal, two for
manslaughter one for second degree
and ono for first degiee on the (list '
ballot and remained this way from
Thursday until Satuiday, when after
being twice told they would have to
stay tOtjethei until they agieed they
compromised on a verdict of man
slaughter. One of the reasons assigned for a
new trial Is that a talesman selected
as one of the jurots In the ease, Wil
liam 11. Daniels, nlco served as a
talesman the preceding week, all of
which It Is contended Is contrary to
the art of 18.1, against a man serving
as a Jul or more than once In a year.
It is also claimed that contrary to
law, the Jurors on thiee different oc
casions were permitted to separate,
three or four at one time being allow
ed to leave the court loom In tho cus
tody ot a tipstaff while the others re
mained In the box.
Among the other leasons assigned Is
one to the effect that Judge Gunster's
language was too strong In his in
structions regarding the Inability of
the court to release the Jury before
it had agreed, that It tended to co
erce the compromise. Exception Is
also taken to the statement of the
Assistant District Attorney Thomas in
his closing address that Kenny lay tn
wait for Healey with a knife, which
was unwarranted by the evidence, it
is nlleged, and calculated to affect tho
minds of the Jury.
The Juiy, it Is also held, disobeyed
the Injunction contained In the fifth
proposition of law, suggested by the
defenso and nfllrmed by court, that If
any Juror had a reasonable doubt ns to
the guilt of the defendant he should
not forsake his opinion out ot defei
ence to the opinion of the other Jurors.
The general allegation le also made
that the vet diet was contrary to the
law, the evidence, the charge of the
court and propositions ot the defense
affirmed by the court.
Judge Love, It Is expected, will come
up some day next week to hear the
DIVORCE DECREE REFUSED.

she treated him disdainfully during the

that one time she committed the hein

TESMONY IN KELLY
PROSECUTION TRIED TO SHOW
HE MULTIPLIED CASES.
In tho Case of Ben Arnovltz Against
Ynlsko Flgulnr it Appeared That
Theie Was an Excessive Charge
for Administeiing Oaths and That
the Aldoiman Permitted the Caso
to Bo Settled Will Try and Com
pel Kelly to Pioduce Rccoids of
Tho effotts of tho prosecution in the
Kelly Impeachment proceedings, es
tc rd iv. weie bent mainly on the pro
duction of evidence tending to chow
that Alderman Kelly was guilty of
multlpbing cases and charging Ille
An Italian peanut vender named
Patrick Cavlno, nllas Qulnn, appeared
on the fltst transcript considered, as
df-fendant In a case of larceny prose
cuted by an Arab peddler named
Geoige O'Urlen. The transcript
charged for nine oaths, two subpoe
nas and $1.10 for mileage it tho rate
of ten cents a mile. Cavlno went on
tho btand and testified that only three
witnesses were sworn In the case, that
he took out no subpoenas whatever
and that the fourteen miles travel
charged for by tho constible was ex
orbitant even If the subpoenas were
served, as he and his witnesses all
live In the Immediate neighborhood of
the alderman's ofllce.
The next transcript taken up was
one in which Cavlno Is made to ap
pear as prosecuting his father-in-law
Nicola Wider, for the latceny of fur
nltute. Cavlno swore he never brought
such a case In Aldeiman Kelly's of
llce. He had an assault nnd battery
caso there against Ms father-in-law
but It was cettled In the presence ot
the alderman. Tony Shlndella, who Is
named on the transcript as bondsman
for 'tt Ider, swoie ho never went ball
for anvbody. and further couldn't, be
cause he owns no propel ty.
In the case of Pen Arnovltz against
Yalkc Figulnr. in which the theft
of p shirt Is charged, evidence was
adduced to show that the number of
oaths alleged on the transcript to have
been administered by the alderman
was largely In excess of the actual
number ol wttnesses sworn. It was
further nlleced In this cise that the
aldeiman permitted the parties to ef
fect a settlement, which would be
compounding a felony. Arnovltz, how
ever, on tho advice of his counsel,
George D. Tavlor, refused to say
whether or not the caso was pettled
as he would by answering in the
affirmative incriminate himself. Jacob
Elmo, the bondsman for Flgulnr, ad
mitted that he owned no real estate.
JOHNSON ON THI3 STAND.
Ben lohnson, a colored cabman, was
called to throw some light on the
transcript on vhich ho appears as
pioseeutor of a laiceny caso against
John Helner. It was claimed by the
alderman's accusers that the case was
proven to be a i Ivil one, yet he sent It
In to the grand Jur. Mr. Johnson,
howevei, gave testimony that tended
to exonerate the alderman. An effqrt
wn also made to show that more
witnesics were charged for than were
Adjournment was made until next
Tuesday. The question as to whether
on not the defendant can be compell
