DOZIER NOT PRESENT
The Injured Man Was Not Ablelo Appear in
the Police Court Yesterday.
EVIDENCE IN THE STABBING AFFRAY.
9Ir. Guy Hnll Honorably Acquitted
ot Tlie Clinrge of Assaulting Young
HorMa-ttcvcrnl l?ersons Cuurgeil
with Cruelly to AuliiiuU?The Cor.
Just before the cases of John A. Brim?
mer, Jr., and Joe Mprltz, charged Joint?
ly with cutting and slabbing Byron C.
Dozier on last Saturday night, were
called for investigation by Justice Bur?
roughs yesterday, counsel for Mr. Mor?
itz asked perhiiaalon from the court to
withdraw the charge of assault preferr?
ed by his Client against Mr. Guy Hall.
The request was granted and the war?
rant against Mr. Hall dismissed. Mr.
Hall wished to have the matter Investi?
gated for his own vindication and evi?
dence uk to the part that he took Into
the affair was Introduced. The evidence
completely exonerated Mr. Hall
and proved that Instead or
violating the law he wna as?
sisting the Commonwealth by trying
to quell the oombutnnts. Mr. Brimmer's
case was then called, at which |>olnl
Mr. Lowenberg, counsel for Mr. Moritz,
moved that Mr. Brimmer's case, as well
as that of his client be continued until
Mr. Dozier was able to appear, and tes?
tify. Counsel thought that owing to the
close relation that the charge against
Mr. Brimmer bore to the charge against
his client, the latter might possibly
bo militated against by the trial of
Mr. Brimmer without the material wit?
ness (Mr. Dozier) being present. Mr.
Brimmer Insisted, however, that he was
Justly entitled to a hearing; that he
could establish his Innocence, ami that
he should be permitted to place himself
In a proper light before the Common?
wealth without further delay. Mr. Low?
enberg consented to go Into the case,
provided the case would be continued
at any point that proved the necessity
of having Mr. Dozler's testimony be?
fore the court. Commonwealth's Attor?
ney Baum sat beside Justice Burroughs
and asslted his honor In the Investiga?
The first witness called was a Mr.
Soelzer, who keeps a barber shop on
Church street In front of which the row
occurred. The relevant points In Mr.
Soelzer's testimony were that he saw
Mr. Brimmer, Mr. Dozier, and Mr.
Moritz engaged In a conversation In
front of Ids -shop; that he heard Do?
zier call Mr. Morltz a d?n liar, and
almost Immediately commence striking
at him anil forcing him hack toward the
middle of the street, where he hist sight
of them on account of the er. wd that
gathered. He did not see Brimmer
after Mr. Dozier commenced lo "rush."
Mr. Morltz toward the middle of the
street. Thought he caught sight of Mr.
Hall trying to hold Mr. Morltz.
! Tom Brown, a barber in Mr. Scolzcr'u
shop, corroborated Mr. Snclzcr's state?
ment In every particular. He said that
lie was standing near Mr. Snolxor and
raw the three men anil heard the words
as testified to by Mr. Soelzer. He also
saw Mr. Hrbivmer trying to pull Mr.
Morltz awiiy from Mr. Dozhc*. and
raw Mr. Hall, apparently trying to
I purl the two:
Mr. Guy Hall, testified thai he was
, passing the place, and saw the two meS
clinched. He asked Mr. Brimmer what
the trouble was and that gentleman
replied excitedly that Morltz was using
a knife, and called lo him to rii?iMst In
parting them or Morltz would kill
Dozier. He then Jumped Itito the af?
fray, catching hold of Morltz. The lat?
ter wrencihed away from Mr. Brim?
mer, and he let go of Dozier and caught
Morltz and threw him to the ground
ami succeeded In taking the knife from
him. Mr. Hall stated that be witness?
ed the affray ahm?! from the start,
land that it was In his opinion Impossi?
ble for Mr. Brimmer to have cut Mr.
Dozier; as charged, as Mr. Krimmer
could not have gotten at Mr. Dozler's
hack without being cut by Mr. Morltz.
I the two (Dozier and Morltz) being
clinched together and the latter cut?
ting at the former.
Mr. Brimmer gave a clear and concise
ntatomcnt In his own behalf, the gist of
which was that Mr. Morltz had inform?
ed him that Mr. Dozier had made de?
rogatory remarks reflecting <m him
and his brother. He mot Mr. Dozier as
he was coming out of Mr. Henry 8ee
Itnger's saloon, on Church street, und
asked him about the same. Mr. Dealer
denied having made the remarks. AI
that moment Mr. Moritz came up, and
attempted lo explain the matter, but
before he could do bo Mr. Dozier called
Mr. Morltz a d?n liar and proceeded
to strike him and force him backward.
He thought It was only a ll-t fight and
tcok no hand in separating them until
Mr. Hall spoke to him and he naught
sight of the knife In Mr. Moritz's hand,
when her UShed In and did all he could
do to part the combatants.
Attorney Barton, who assisted Mr.
Brimmer In his defense asked that his
client be dtohilrsed. but upon motion
of both Commonwealth's Attorney
Baum and Mr. Lowenberg. Justice Bur?
roughs concluded to continue tlie case
of Mr. Brimmer until Thursday, Janu?
ary 2d. at Which time Mr. Dozier Is ex?
pected to be well enough to appear.
Justice Burroughs stated that from
the evidence In the case he would not
hesitate t - acquit Mr. Brimmer, was it
not for the deposition of Mr. Dozier
to the effect that Mr. Brimmer had cut
him In the back. On Ibis acount he
thought Mr. Dozier should be given a
hearing before the charge was dismiss?
Mr. Guy HAH was honorably ac?
quitted at the costs of the complainant
and Mr. Brimmer released under lnmd
of Sf.OO for his appearance. John A.
Brimmer, Sr.. entering as his surety.
Mr. Moritz was remanded to Jail.
CRUELTY TO ANIMALS.
The case of John Beskin. the wood
dealer on Bermuda street, who was ar?
rested by Special Officer Moore, agent
of the S. P. C. A., on a warrant charging
him with working a galled horse, was
tried In the Police Court yesterday and
the accused was fined $-1.75. His case
was shortly followed by that of Mr.Sld
ney A. Walters, arrested by the society
for allowing his horse to remain in nn
open and unprotected stable during the
sleet and snow storm about a week
ago. Mr. Walters testified and produc?
ed witnesses to prove that a part of his
stable, to which the horse had access,
was tight and comfortable, and that the
part alluded to by the prosecution had
recently Ikvpu burned down and that
he had not had sufficient time to repair
It. As the evidence respecting the mate?
rial point in the case was contradic
tory Justice Burroughs continued the
cose for further Investigation; when he
will deliver his opinion.
The next case of cruelly to tmhnnls
taken up was the warrant against David,
McClellan, colored, a driver for Mr. W.'
T. Irwin, the expressman, on Watet
Btreet. The warnyit charged McCiellifn
With trotting a horse a block on Hunk
street with a ton of coal In the cart.
Mr. Julius T. Suundcrs represented the
accused, and drew from Agent Moore
the fact that trotting of the horse was
on the down grade on Bank street, and
that the wagon was In the car tracks,
so that It would have been a greater
effort to keep the hcrse from trotting
j down the hill, owing to the momentum
from behind, than It was to let him
trot, hence there was no cruelty In It.
It was also proven that Mr. Irwin urged
his drivers to make quick time or they
would be discharged. After hearing the
evidence and argument Justice Bur?
roughs' dismissed the warrant against
McClellan, with Instructions not to trot
his horse with a load on In future, even
though told to do so by his employer.
TAKEN TO MANCHESTER.
Officer Jones, from Manchester, Va.,
arrived In Norfolk yesterday and ap?
peared before Justice Burroughs with
the necessary papers for the custody of
