beinir a rn? in I. ? iQj ai < "?? ma ckd ha*
tween a white man and about fifteen
colored men who had been working .it
th ecliemlcal works at Pinner's Point |
The white man saw the men who had
been working lor him, stepped up and
said, "Well, boys, lmw la this, you
have not gone tojw?rk?" One of the.
men acted na spokesman and said: '
"Mr.-(calling the gentleman by
name), you have been paying us 10
cents an bout, and some days wo do
ma got more than from one to three
hours' work at that price. If the work
was steady we would not mind it so
much, but we don't, and have to pay
cur lair to get down there; but If you
will pay us i,", c uts an hour wo will
I chance the job again."
At this point the white man became
; exasperated and used some very ugly
? language to the men. who were work-!
i mg themselves tip to fever heat and
i would no doubt have caused trouble
had not the crowd beep dispersed.

AN ASSAULT CASE.
The Charge Against Well Known
Young Man Dismissed.
The Statement of tho Young l.:i?ly Wim
Made the Complaint?The Euthcr's
Statement?An Encounter Interrupted
IS}' u I'ollccmnn?Tho Accused Testllies.
A gonleman, who was charged with
accosting a young lady on the street
the evening of Christmas JJuy, was ar?
raigned in Police Court las., evening at
li o'clock. The case was tried by Jus?
tice Charles It. Nash.
The lady making the charge came to
: court in company with her father. She
was youthful In appearance, appareut
? ly not yet 20, and was decidedly pretty
. and attractive, iler bearing was mod?
est, and her evidence, wnile stated
t ic.uly, was given in a voice slightly
tremulous and displaying some emo?
According to her statement, she came
from Norfolk with her father, who,
upon leaving the ferry, stepped into H.
O. Pearson's store to get a cigar. She
remained outside, und walked along
: slowly toward High street, expecting
j her father to catch upiwith her.
While walking thus some one touch?
ed her on the shoulder, and accosted
her with the question, "Aren't you
lost.'.'" Glancing up she found sho hud
been spoken to by a man whom sho did
not know. She was much ?frightened.
A m vv moments later her father came
up, and she pointed out to him the per?
son who had accosted her.
The father told Justice Nash that as
he came out of Pearson's he thought
he saw some one walking with his
daughter; that when he Joined her lie
asked her who it was. He then noticed
that she seemed very much agitated,
and it was several moments before she
could speak. Sue told him that She
I had been Insulted by a gentleman
whom she pointed out to him. The
lather returned and struck the man.
The encounter was Interrupted by
Police Officer J. E. Diggs, who placed
bulb parties under arrest. While the
policeman was endeavoring to restrain
the enraged patent the other party in
the affair disappeared. The gentleman
who made the attack was carried to
the statlon,-house and released on bis
promise (o appear in Police Court the
next morning. Officer Diggs later saw
the gentleman who had been attacked
and asked if he wished to make a
charge against bis assailant. He re?
plied that he did not.
Tills ended the evidence for the pro?
The accused said he had just came
out of the ferry gate and was going to?
ward High street when he saw a gen?
tleman whom he took to be an ac?
quaintance from Gloucester county,
whom he had met in the course of a
business transaction. This gentleman
seemed to be hurrying as If to catch
the ferry bont. The accused said to
him, "Aren't you lost," but no atten?
tion was paid to tho remark, and a
second glance showed the accused that
he had been mistaken in the man's
identity. The accused said he noticed
then that he was almost abreast of,
and close to a young lady, who turned
and looked into his face; that he saw
she thought his remark was addressed
to her; that not wishing her to believe
be had intended to accost her, or had
any intention of joining her, he slack?
ened his pace and fell to the rear. He
denied that he touched her on the
shoulder, or that he intended his re?
mark for her. He said also that his
reason for no! making a charge ngainst
the young lady's father for assaulting
him was that he wanted to avoid any
tiotdriety the affair might occasion.
This: in detail, was the history of the
occurrence. Justice Nash, in disposing
Of the case, said there were but two
witnesses as to what actually occurred,
the young lady and the accused, the
father of the girl not having seen her
accosted. He (the justice) could not
undertake to say which was right, as
the evidence of one about balanced the
evidence of the other. He, therefore,
dismissed the charge.
