At 0;40 Col. Crawford entered tho court

stance bo said:
"Gentlemen of tho jury, I am hero to

yhat I can tor this unhappy student, who
Is now entangled In the clutches ot tbo
law. When tho pollco forco ot tho city of Cin

judged guilty by Plummcr, Crlm and Mo

Caldwell or Crlm or McDnrmott or Plummcr,
tbey were telling tho truth. I did not cross

tbo greatest respect and tho great
est sympathy for them, my hcarti
goes out to thorn in their sor
row, but, gentlcmon of tho jury, thcro aro two
sides to this question. Wo havo hero the
mother and sister of this unfortunato man:
this man who is a victim of a most dastardly
persecution at tho hands of a relentless police.
"1 tell you tho persecution this man was
subjected to was outrageous. Think of tho
sweating process ho was subjected to, of tho
long days and sleepless nights, without having
a ehanco to rcmovo his clothing. Ho was sub
jected to a steady Are of questions by police,
newspaper men, and tho hundreds of visitors.
Tho Spanish inquisition pales Into insignifi
cance. They talk about Jackson's brazen manner,
but havo you seen any brazenncss, any posing,
any affectation, any Impudence? No, sir, you
havo not. Whoro is tho evidence of mental
distress? Why, when ho was being traduced
and cursed and lnsultod and called a vilo mur
derer, when tho bloody ovldenco was thrown In
to bis f acc.be sat there a dignified man, an un
affected gentleman. Could a guilty man do
that? No, sir. It was a mind free from guilt
that was not effected by that spectacular
show. Why, that was tho filling in this case:
it was slop and nonsenso. At tho very
beginning of this caso I was willing to
admit that tho olothlng In court was
that of Pearl Drynn, but they dragged
the heartbroken mother In and mado her
go over the ghastly clothing of her murdered
daughter, they called tho agad father and tho
sister to tho stand, and tho neighbors, too, to
go through this spectacular scene. I was will
ing to sparo thorn all this, but no, tho doslre
ot tho prosecution for tho speotaoular, their
desire for notoriety, their doslro to play to the
grand stand, made them resort to this rot.
Then, In his nrgumont, CoL Nelson says thus
this archfiend went to Grcencastlo and then
ruined, then murdered then robbed Pearl '
"Why, Scott Jackson camo to Grccncastlc I
In tho holidays of '91-'0J, when ho met Pearl I
Bryan. Did he go out thero for tho purpose of
dissipation, did ho go out thero to loaf? No,
sir, ho went thero to work and earn his liv
ing, and he worked In the ofllce of Dr. Glllcs-
piu mut spring uuu summer, iina wnai was
his reputation? Not a witness said It was
bad; not one person camo bore and said his
reputation was questionable, but many came
and testified that his reputation was good:
that it was good morally; that It was good In
regard to veracity and truthfulness."
CoL Crawford then read ono of tho letters
Jackson wroto Pearl Dryan.
"I want to say here that I don't blame the
newspaper boys and tbo nowspapcrs tor print
ing tho stories given them by the police and
the prosecution. I tell you tho prosecution's
caso was on dress parade. Tho defense could
not glvo to tho public what it Intended to
provo, what witnesses had to say.
Why, If It had been given out these
witnesses would havo been pounced
upon by tbo police and 'bullied Into submis
sion. Tho power of tbo pollco Is unlimit
ed. They go to a person and say, In all their
power, "You swear this and you sweat
that, you know that you know It.' What did
they do? Why, tboy gave a lot of ignorant
Negroes to understand that thoy must come

had mado to Mr. Collins as a notary public
Col. Crawford then discussed tho letters ol
Jackson to Pearl Bryan, pointing out vividly
and eloquently that tho communications were
entirely free of any mention or suspicion ol
wrong-doing or. oven intimate friendly rela
