THE GREEN TRIAL.
Defendant's Account of
Killing of Baldwin-Other
TUft nxnmlnincr rll of Thnmn if
-Green on the charge of shooting and kill-
in Lewis d. Baldwin, at Lexington, was
resumed innrsrtay. boveral witnesses
testifled to about tho same as has been,
Neal If. Leach, ef Maysville, said : "I
was standing on the portico of the Phoe
nix, up-stairs. I saw Qreen advancing
on Baldwin, wko seemed to bo cursing
him and retreating. J net then they
came together, and I saw Baldwin punch
Green with his niatol. I then hnnrd
something click as if a pistol was snapped,
to shoot witho.t hitting Polk! Baldwib,'
I think, fired the first shot. Green then
fired. I was then too much excited to
-. , A- -!J T.t 1. . I
tell anything about it distinctly, but I
saw Baldwin fall. I will not swear that
Baldwin fired the first shot."
Mr. Greea was introduced, and the
followine is his testimony as published
in the Daily Press : " I camo to Lexing
ton on the eleven o'clock train on the K.
0. tho night before the 10th. I camo as
a representative of the Cincinnati Com-mercial-G&zetto
to write a report of Joe
Blackburn'B speach at the unveiling. I
camo unarmed, but had been told of
Baldwin's threats; so I went to Cabell
Bullock botwoen nine and ten o'clock
that morning and borrowed a pistol from
him. At the commencement of the'
aiuicuity i was wanting up Main street
to mo nocei, ana was just crossing .Lime-
stone street, when I noticod throe men,
nono of whom I knew, but whoso man
ner was meddlesome to me. Just ao I
was putting my foot on the far curbing of
Limestono street, nearest the hotel, one
of the men said something to me, and
was gestioulating with4iis hasd. I look
ed at him for a moment and said to him :
"I don't know who you are." He replied,
very loud: "Baldwin, and you owe mo
an apology." "Db, no," Ijsaid, "I don't
owe you any apology ; I don't know
yon." "By God, you owe me an apology,"
said Baldwin. I said : " I refuse ;" he
then said: "I intend to have satisfaction."
He was advancing on me with his hand
behind him, and with him was his friend,
who advanced and retreated as he did.
I then started to tho hotol, and Btldwin
aid ho intended to have satisfaction.
" Oh, pshaw !" I said, " I don't want any
difficulty with you." Ho repeatod that
ho wanted satisfaction. I told him again
I did not want anything to do with him,
ana iaiu: "mere is my notel ; l am go
ing there, and from thero to the public
square" I moved up and he and his
friend intercepted me, and Baldwin said :
"You are n liar and a coward." I step
ped back, and said : " I don't care for
that; I don't care for your blackguard
ing." He then called me " a damned liar
and a damned coward." I said : " I un
derstand your opinion of mo and don't
care what you say. You demand an
apology and I refuse. What are you go
ing to do about it?" In tho meantime
I saw Polk trying to persuade Baldwin to
desist Baldwin then had his hand in
his hip-pocket. Ho advanced and said :
"I say you are a damned liar, a thief,"
and something else I did not hear. I
put my band to my ear and naked' him
what he Baid. He repeated, and this
time I heard him fully. It was like the
above, only I heard the damned b b .
That I did not at first hear. He then
drew his pistol, and as I saw it coming
out of his pocket I jumped for it and
grabbed his arm to try and disarm him.
I grabbed tho hand that bad the pistol
in it, but did not get a good hold of it
He wrenched his arm from aae and
struck me with his pistol. He struck me
a blow over the eye and anothec over tho
head. I then receverod and struck
him several heavy blows. Before
that ho had his pistol up to my head and
tried to pull it off, but it would not work.
I knocked it down and struck him the
heavy blows above mentioned. Ho stag
gered back and I then drew my pistol
and fired and kept advancing and firing
until my pistol was empty. I then start
ed away aud looked buck and saw him
trying to fire, He did, and immediately
afterwards I felt that I was Bhot, and as I
was going into tho hotol I met Cabell
Bullock and told him that I was shot, and
I thou;ht that it would kill me, and
asked him to go for a doctor; if I .was
badly hurt I wanted to know it."
"On cross-examination he said that
Baldwin fired one shot before I fired.
I drow my pistol from my overcoat
pockot. Baldwin fired four shots be
fore he foil and one after. When he
fired his last shot my pistol was empty,
I hud been advised of Baldwin's threats
through the newspapers and by men,
two of whom I remember distinctly. I
never saw Baldwin before in my life ; did
not know,' any of the parties, bnt have
sinco learned that one of them was

Sheriff Mosley, of Jessamine County.
I never heard him say to me that I had
written him up in my paper and I don't
believe he said it Ho did not try to
shoot mo with his pistol at first; he
struck mo with it. Ho made five distinct
ive efforts to shoot mo before 1 drew my
pistol; three times be pointed it at my
head and two times at my side. I saw
at the trigger, but I
that it was a peculiarly
constructed pistol that would not go off
easily; to that I owe my life." Wheu
asked if he was not a scientific boxer, he
said ho usod to put on the gloves for
