THIRD TRIAL FOR
Former Preacher Will Face Jury
Again in Henrico Next
With the July term of the Hcn
iico county Circuit Court cornea Ihoj
third attempt on the part of the Com?
monwealth to convict Edward foster,
the Inspired preacher, for mtstrcutlns]
a small white girl adrptcd by him
from an orphan asylum. Common- !
wealth's Attorney Button and associate!
counsel are already bUBy reviewing!
thi: evidence of previous trials In the!
effort to uncovei some additional proof
cd Foster's guilt.
The two former attempts to .Obtain]
justlco In this celebrated case result?
ed in a disagreement. In both cases,'
the majority of the Jurors held out fori
conviction against a minority who
stood for acquittal, in the last trial,
the poll of the Jury stood ten for con?
viction and two for acquittal, and
though the jury deliberated lung, no
agreement could be reached.
Sentiment in Henrico Is strongly
against the accused cx-preaclier. us
illustrated by the unreserved comment
that greeted the result of the last
trial. Had It not been for the testi?
mony of an aunt of the girl regarding
ihc ago of the child. It is probable that
an ugreement would have been pos-l
sible. but the testimony rendered by
this aunt, under the skillful question?
ing of Louis 0.| Wendcnbiirg, proved
a stumbling block In the way of thi
Commonwealth's pi ogress.
Foster's late depends almost soieiv
on the oge of the girl at the time of
tl.e alleged misconduct, and the total
i.bsence of records of biith make the
establishment of any particular date
hfcrd for the proseeutoti. Her own
father, who is weak-minded, appeared
op the stand at the last trial In the
h' p.i of settling the age question, but
he answered yes so readily to all qUes
I tions that his evidence war. thrown
