JUDGE (-A(E BELIEVES
IN UNWRITTEN LAW.
In Sentencing Prisoner in Lexington
Court,, He Utters Unusual State
ments From Bench.
Lexington, Sept. 20.-"Not guilty"
was the verdict in the case of M. B.
Buff, the Confederate soldier, who was
placed on trial yesterday in the ses
sions court together with his son, Artie
Buff, for assault and battery with in
tent to kill. "Guilty of aggravated as
sau't," was the verdict as to Artie
At the opening of court this morn
ing the case was resumed, and by 11
o'clock the arguments had been con
cluded and the case placed in the
hands of the jurors. It was 5 o'clock
when the verdict was reached.
This is the case in which Miss
Malissa Buff, daughter of M. B. Buff,
admitted that she fired the shots at
John Hendrix, Jr., because he had se
duced her under promise of marriage.
Her testimony was dramatic at times
and she was the star witness for the I
defense. The father and son, as well
as all of the other members of the
household, corroborated the young wo
Judge Gage immediately sentenced
young Buff to pay a fine of $100 or
serve 60 days in jail.
In the course of his remarks to the
prisoner, Judge Gage stated that he
regretted very much that there was
not a law in this State permitting the
shooting of a man like a mad dog, who
had seduced a woman. "The man who
seduces a woman under the promise
of marriage and then fails to marry I
her is the lowest sort of a villain," he
declared. He stated that he regretted
very much that it was not in his pro
vince to give young Hendrix five years
on the chaingang.
