tbe Grain Merchant Heard in
Judge Kimball's Court.
The trial of S. S. Daish, the veil-known
firain merchant, for indecent assault upon
Ul:s Etclle Sherwood, a joung girl whom
Ik had employed as cashier at the grain
elevator, at Second street and Florida
avenue, was commenced in Judge Kha
hair evert jesleiday arternoon.
In view of the prominence of Mr. Dnish
aadtlie expectation that some seuoational
features would lie developed, a goid-sized
audience gathered In the courtroom. This
was gratified to a certain extent, as the
details of the alleged assault were re
lated most fully by Mius Sherwood. "who
was the first witness.
Tlie j oimg girl, wliu stated that .she was
fcevefHeon 3ears old, has a mot attractive
face and a comely Jigure. She wore a
fcUaw tailor liat, sbia waist ami dark
tlcirt. Her hair w.tfc worn low oer the

orWeh the aliased assault wah comndtH-d.
Sfce fcaid she was attempting to um; the
ititoplKHie when the defendant came up
behind Jter and put her hair back from

On Um? orj following lie lian asked her
into to private ofriee, closing the door be
Wad him. He then came over to her and
ptM, Ms arm around her waibt, calling her
"dear" tad "darling." She told him fchc
didn't like hfm U take such liberties with
her. and that she attempted to leave the
office. He mid: 0b, you must set used
io it. for jou know you are going to lie my
glrl." She mid bhe then went back into
the front office.
The next day he called her into the office
again, and after hhutting the door, asked
lier to sit on his lap. She refused and
then lie put hit arnib around her and took
ltherticb with lier person, whicli hire hesi

On Friday the defendant again had her
in his office and this time he told her
Uat Ills family was going to be away on
the following Sunday, and that she must
come up to Ms house and keep him com
paay. On Saturday she asked to Ih
let rr as ehe did not feel well. The
continual worry which resulted from the
defendant's persecutions, bhe said, had
made her ill. She went home with her
eistcr, bt she did not tell anyone about
bar trouble "vsith her employer.
Tiie witness was crobs examined by At
torney S T Thomas, the defendant's law
yer, and it aoon became evident that the
d"ftaibe would be that the girl was insstl
gated to bring the charge againbt Daibli by
lier parents, and that the case was one of
Mis Sherwood admitted telling Louis T.
Nathan, the cashier of the firm, that bhe
wjte directed to bring complaint against
the defendant by her father, but that
did not like to do it because it would
make the affair public, and bhe would
have to pr. into court.
The cross-examination failed to alter the
pri" story "la the slightest rebpect. She
admitted that she had had a conversa
tion witii Miss Julia Leonard, who had
come to see her after the publication of
tbe affair, and that this young lady told
lug- the did not think any girl ought to
work under Mr. Daih, as she did nos
consider it safe. She had never been ilks

Mrs. Slierwood, the mother of the com
plainant, testified that her daughter
came home from Work on the day sue
left Mr. Datsti's employ in a very ner

by referring to Daish as "lhat rascal,"

Ms testimony was immaterial, as he only
ke"w what his wife had told him.
Mr. Daish then took the stand in his
own defense and he made a sweeping
denial of tlie charges-
1 did brash the girl's hair back when
she was using the 'phone,"hesaid,"butit
was because she could not hear with tt
hashing down in any such manner."
He also admitted that he had taken her

THE GIESBOHO POINT BRIDGE.
Mr. Adilnnus Mnhes Some Sugges
tions to the CommlHsIonerK.
Mr. J. H. Adrinans has addressed a let
ter to the Commlb-siuners containing omo
suggeb'.lous iegardiug the proposed bridge
from the foot of South Capitol ttreet to
Giebboro Pr.int. It reads in part:
"A tract of approximately 37fi ncrcrf,
known up Harry Farm or Hillsdale, dense
ly populated and having an assssNCd valua
tion of about $311,140.08, giving an
average assi-sted valuation of $S-18.23
per aera. and an average taxation of
$12.42 per acre, would be made accessible
to the cK. by this bridge so located, while
the bite selected by Iht Army engineer cuts
this tract orf from access to rald bridge,
betides "preventing access thereto of the
tratric of the Insane Asylum.
'WliHc it is undoubtedly true that farm
ert around Glcsburo desire and should havo
an access to. the city, which will uvoid
the uwof the asylum hill, it docs uot follow
that this desirable end is only attainable
by the selection of a bite starting rrom Fimt
street southwest. A river load, parallel
to the trarks of the Shepherd Branch of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, start
ing from or near Poplar Point, would an
swer every purpose for them, while It
would afford the HIJlulale people access
to the bridge. The greatest good to the
greatest number should be the guiding
maxim with tne powers authorized to
select a bite for this bridge."
