Jury in the Civil Rights Case
Renders lis Verdict.
LAWYER JONES WILL APPEAL
Colored Customer of the Lunchroom
Keener Not Satisfied with the
Finding Decision After an Houi-Vs
v. Deliberation Right of Caterers
to Discriminate JUetween 1'atrons.
The jury In the Brunhaus civil rights
case,' after half an hour of deliberation
yesterday afternoon, brought in a verdlr.t
ofuot guilty. Thomas L. Jones, thecolored
lawyer, who had the cahrge brought
against Mr. Brunhaus, alleging that he
refused to serve the complainant with
food in the room generally used by his
customers, declares that he will take the
case up to tlte court of appeals.
The proceedings yesterday began with
the argument of Counsel Cook, who opened
the case for the defense. Mr. Cook pref
aced ids argument by reading the law
under which the information was filed,
concluding with the penally, which provides
for a fine of $100, forfeiture of license
and debarment from entering into the
same business Tor u year after such for
feiture. "l emphasize the penalty," continued the
attorney, "so that the jury may see to
what they make my client liable should
ttiey bring in a verdict of guilty The
law is the most unjust one on the statute
bock. 1 1 provides for tlie entire desti uction
Of his business if convicted, and prevents
him and everyone employed by him, from
earning his living by conducting an eating
bouse for a period of upward of a year.'
The lawjer then called attention to the
evidence submitted. It was conclusively
shown, he said, that Mr. Jones had not
been refused food in the establishment of
ttie defendant. On the contrary, it was
because Mr Jones wanted a cleaner room,
ft more magnificent room, and it was lus
whim which caused the case to be brought
before the court.
The quesfon resolved itself to whether
the defendant had a right to diiect his
business iu a reasonable manner or whether
he should allow such men as Jones, O'Neal,
and BrockenlKjroiigh to run his business for
Counsel Neill also laid stress upon the
severe penalty provided for in the law
The question further arises, he said, afe 10
Mr Jones' purpose in vfciting the eating
house The prosecuting Avitness himself
had testified tliat he expected to be re
fused. He knew what the law was, and lie
went mtc the eating house to see It vio
lated "Was lie hungry when he gave his
order?" Mr. Redly went on to saj. "Did
he testify on the stand that he had gone
somewhere else to satisfy his hunger?
"Another question arises regarding the
authority which Mr Brunhaus may exercise
in hiHown business Mr Brunhaus had said
that he didn't like Mr Jones' physiognomy
And hus he not the right, if a man with
whom he- would not care to have his fam
ily aspe-jate and ttiere are such men to
ask that man to take a place where his
other customers will not be forced to sit
down Jieside him?"
Assistant District Attorney Pugh, in
closing.the case for the Government, called
the attention of the jury to the fact
that while the judge, the jury and the
prosecuting attorney himself might have
their own opinions a to the need for the
law under wtiich the defendant was
charged, still the law was theie and the
jury was called upon to decide fiom the
testimony whether Mr Brunhaus had
violated it or not. As to the violation
there was no question whatever. There
ivcre two witnesses who testified that
the room to which Mr. Jones was referred
was very dirty and unfit for any one to
eat In. Mr. Brunhaus might be a physiog
nomist and able to decide Mr. Jones'
respectability f mm the shape of his head,
but it was a question whether the law
could take cognizance of this abnormal
talent of the defendant.
"The law in this case," Mr. Pugh went
on to say, 'doos not apply to white or
colored. It is properly called the cHil
rights law. It means that all of us, you, I
or anybody, can claim our civil rigbts by
"Now, I am here, in the face of criticism,
perhaps, to do my sworn duty and ask for
tlie enforcement of tlie law as it appears
upon the statute book and not as you or I
might wish. And I call upon you to do
tlie same. To enforce the law as you have
sworn to do. You can take no cognizance
of the fact that the man who applied to
the defendant was colored. The law does
not rapntlon white or colored. It merely
commands that when any person, black or
white, who Is respectable and well be
haved, applies for accommodations, he
must to served, and in the room In which
the geneial public are ordinarily enter
tained. And the defendant himself testi
fies that the room in which he refused to
supply Mr; Jones was the one in which
the public was ordinarily served.
"Mr. Jones was well behaved and re
spectable at the time, as three reputable
witnesses have testified. But the counsel
for the defense have told you that Mr.
O'Neal, whom they characterize as drunk,
was served while Mr. Jones was refused
That is to say, they would rather servo
a drunken white man than a respectable
In charging the jury, JudgcKlmballstated
that in a nutshell the question forthcinto
decide, was whether the small room to
which Mr. Jones was directed was one in
which the defendant ordinarily served hit,

A deplorable case of destitution was
