A HAnxAS Conrua Cas.--A.. Ml
Mackey .Esq., sued out a writ of
1Dabeas Corpus Thursday morning
before T:ial Justics Robertson and
Marshall, to inquire into the cause
of imprisonment, of Autln Ross,
colored, uonftoed in the .utrd House
It seems that Austin , Ross w6a
engaged last Saturday night, in a
light on the street with Sipio
Cohen and Center Gibson.
Mr. Gtrig, aoting Intendant, sum
mooed. Austin to appear before him
Monday morning. He failed. to
come and thereupon Mr. Gerig or
dored Polioeman Murphy to arroet
him and confine him iq the Guard
Mr. Geeig mado a return to the
writ, alleging : "The prisoner is
held in the Guard House for the
apace of (.4 hours, for not obeying the
summons to appear before ee
as noting Intendant of the
town of Winusboro, on August
24th 1875, to answer to a charge of
assault and battery committed in
Mr. %lackey first addrebe.I the
Court. He contended that the re
turn showed that Austin Ross was
imprisoned for a contempt, and that
under the charter of the town, the
counoil can only punish for ocntemit
committed in their presence while
sitting as a court.
lie also made the follgwing. point
That a policeman cannot arrest a
person for an offencO less than a
felony, unless it is committed in ilia
pretence. He referred to the words
of the charter to support tous propo
sition. In Sece. X of the 'Act of
Incorporation we find ; "Any .person
who may be engaged in a breach of
the peace, and riotous or disorderly
Mr. Gerig then spoke. He said if
a policeman can arrest a person
guilty of a breach of the peace, only
when he sees him committing it, then
it would be be better to discharge
the police and only have a njgl.t
watch to look out for firea.
The Court, after consulting a few
moments, decided- that Austin Ross
should be disobiarged on the grounds
that the Town Council could not puu.
ish a person for a comtempt in not
obeying the summons to appear before
The Caurt .aho instruod Poliee,
man Murphy that It was not necessary
that a breach of the peace should be
committed in his presence to justify
an arrest ; lhe might arrest on infor,
mation or complaint, and *that If a
person Is guilty of a "l.rpaoh of 'the
peace, any riotous or disorderly con
