Forrest Lawrence, charged with kill
ing George Thomas in the saloon of
Mike Woods on last Saturday night,
was held to the grand jury at his ex
amining trial held before Judge Dun
don yesterday morning. A number of
witnesses were introduced at the rrial
and the evidence given was practically
the same as that brought out in the
investigation conducted by Coroner
Rudolph Davis Monday morning.
Lawrence was represented by Attor
neys G. A. McMillan and Vm. B.tAr
drey, while County Attorney George
; Batterton conducted the prosecution.
The revolver which was taken from
tne r.egro alter he naa been shot was
' brought into court and identified by
the witnesses as the one he had removj
ed alter the shouting.
A. K. McKennev, the bartender who
witnessed tbe shooting, was the first
. Commonwealth witness placed on the
, btand. He told in detail of the inci
dents that occurred prior to the shoot
ing or tne negro by Lawrence. lie
said the first intimation he had that
i there was any trouble was when
i Thomas came to him, telling him that
t the white man was trying to make
trouble, and asked what was best for
him to do. According to the witness,
he was advised to' leave by one of the
rear doors and was in the act of doing
so when Lawrnece fired upon him.
Dr. William Kenney, one of th at
tending physicians, was placed on the'
stand and stated the nature of the
wound which caused the death of
Thomas. He said he saw the revolver
in the hands of McKenney which he
was told had been taken from the
negro after he had been shot. He also
said a number of cartridges were found
on the pool table where Thomas was
Iving and which it wa said had fallen
from his pocket.
Both Mike and Kirby Woods testi
fied practically the same as before
the coroner's jury. The former did
not see the nrst shot fired and said
there was no weapon in the hand of
Thomas when he fell to the floor alter
being wounded. The latter told of
being engaged behind the bar when
the trouble took place and saw neither
of the shots fireo. He said there was
no weapon ol any sort visible, but
while Thomas was lying on the floor
he took from under his coat a large
45 calibre Colts' revolver, the cylinder
uf which was loaded with cartridges.
One of the cartridges he said showed
marks but said he could not tell wheth
er or not a trigger had been snapped
upon it. He said he did not see either
of the men enter the saloon and had no
recollection of serving either with
Walter Gray, who was in the pool
room when the shooting occurred, said
he did not see either of the Bhots fired
nor Thomas fall. Had not seen erther
of the men during the eveninc and had
no knowlede of who did the shootinc
until he saw Abe McKenney si apple
with Lawrence and wrench the piatol
fiom his hand. Sam Biddle. a colored
boy, was in the saloon at the time oi
the shooting with a lunch ran and
gave a description of where the negro
was standing and how he tell after be
ing wounded. Ho heard no lemarks
pass between Lawrence and the negro.
After the Commonwealth closed the
case Judge Denis Dundon recucnized
all of the witnesses in the sum of S100
for their appearance before the Bour
bon county grand jury which convenes
on March 10 and ordered the deiendant
ommitted to jail without bond.
A Handsome Likeness.
Dr. M. H. Dailev's many friends are
invited to inpseet a magnificent oil
painting of the doctor at his office.
The inspection is for a few days only
as'the masterpiece will be sent to the
salon at Paris for exhibition.
