JOHN LATTA AND
TEN O'CLOCK LAW.
The Former Will Still
Wear His Star.
LATTEIt KEMAIXS IN STATUE Ql 0.
So Decide the Board of Mayor and
Aldermen. Alderman Met'lnnnttlittn
Va Ah. out, ant Aldermnn Hodge, He
The "ten o'clock bell" will con
tinue to rinjr, and City Marshal
John Latta will continue to wear
his star. This was the conclusion
arrived at by the Hoard of Mayor
and Aldermen last Wednesday
The ordinance amending the law
requiring saloons to close at 10
o'clock, and extending ths hour to
12 o'clock, was also brought up on
its final reading. On its two former
readings the ordinance had passed
by a vote of 5 to 3; Aldermen Ab
bot, Hodge, Lazarus Craft and
Massey voting for it, and Aldermen
Davis. White and McClannahan
against it. When the final vote was
takn Wednesday night, Alderman
McCla"ahau was absent on account
of sickness. Had those present
all voted as they had voted on the
two former readings, this would have
left the vote standing 5 for and 2
airainst; but fortunately for the
good of the town, Alderman Hodge
4 flopped." For some reason, satis
factory to himself, he changed part
ners, and this left the vote standing
4 for and 3 against, and the amend
ment was lost for the want of a ron
stitutional majority, it requiring a
majority of the whole Board to pass
or amend an ordinance.
The trial against Mr. Latta was
begun last Friday night, ut was
continued until Wednesday night.
The Board voted unanimously for
his acquittal of all the charges pre
ferred against him. To show the
flimsiness of the prosecution and
the maliciousness of the persecution,
the Herald gives a summary of
the evidence heard.
The Board met with a full attend
ance Friday evening, March 25.
The regular order of business was
dispensed with, and the trial of Mr.
Latta was then taken up.
The charges against Mr. L-itta
were: First, taking part and elec
tionering in the late municipal elec
tion while serving In the capacity of
City Marshal; second, engaging In
other business and neglecting his
duty while acting as City Marshal,
and, third, failing to turn over to
the city fines that had been paid to
him as City Marshal.
The charges were preferred by
Pitts White. The prosecution was
conducted by W. J. Webster, Esq ,
and Mr. L.tta was defended by
Messrs. L. P. Padgett, E. H. Hatch
er, W. 8. Fleming and H. P. Figures.
The attorneys for defense stated
that Mr. Latta had already been
legally tried and acquitted on the
first charge, and to the other charges
they would plead not guilty.
Counsel for prosecution contended
that the trial was not at a regular
meeting of the Board, and therefore
was not legal; that if he could
prove that the trial was a mere
sham, gotten up by Mr. Latta's
friends to acquit him, so that he
could not be tried on the same
charges by the present board he
had a right to bring up the same
charges and try him again. A great
denl of discussion followed, and
finally the minutes were referred t.
and it was found th.it Mr. Latta had
been regularly tried on the charge
ot taking- part in the election, at a
regular meeting or tne Hoard, and
acquitted. Counsel for prosecution
then witlidrew this charge, and the
trial on the other charges was en
tered into. The prosecution put the
following witnesses on the sta'io,
who, on being examined and cross
questioned, gave testimony as fol
James Wkst Witness stated that he
was employed at the Pump Factory,
and that he had seen Mr. Latta up there
