CHARGED WITH A CRIME.
Mlaa Elizabeth Flagler Indicted for
Murder or the Washington Boy.
The grand jury of the District of
Columbia has returned an indict-
ment against Miss Elizabeth Flag
ner, daughter of Brigadier General
W. Flagner. chief of the ordnance
department of the army and form
erly commandant of Rock Island Ar
senal. It will be recalled that Au
gust 2, Miss Flagner shot and killed
Ernest Green, a colored ooy li years
f age, whom she detected stealing
fruit on her fathers premises in
Washington. She lired two shots
from an upper window of her home
merely to scare tne ooy, sne restined
at the coroner's inquest, but her aim
was only too true and the boy was
struck by the second shot and died
without "a struggle. Miss Flagner,
learning the deplorable result of the
shooting, at once went to police
headquarters and gaye herself up.
The coroner s inquest was immei-
atelv held and after listening to
Miss Flagner's story of the occur
rence the jury' returned a verdict ex
onerating her from all biame.
I Incline the True BUI.
The fatali'v caused considerable
comment at Washington, and in
order to remove the impression that
his daughter was trying to escape
the consequences of her act, ash'
ngton dispatches state mat uen
Flagler of his own accord brought
the matter to the attention of the
grand jury. This body in the Dis
trict of Columbia consists of 23 mem
bers, and it is reported that the
maioritv voted for the true bill
found against Miss Flagler. The in
dictment charges her with man
slaughter, and it is understood that
when the case is called for trial it
will be heard by a mixed jury one
composed of both white and colored
members. According to me press
dispatches, the outlook for Miss
Flagler is not very encouraging, as
criminal carelessness, of which she
is accused, nnder the district law, is
the same as manslaughter.
