BRADSTREET, II THE DISTRICT COURT. JUDGE C0WEL CREATES A MILD SENSATION. Says That the Jury's Decision in a Re cent Case Was Wrong the Men Who Had the Fight in Dunn's Saloon Were Fined The Jury Return a Verdict of Not Guilty in the Hart Case .Attorney Marsh's Friends Congratulate Him on His Victory. 'Late yesterday afternoon the jury came in on the Johnson-Lamb-Downs-Kelly cases. They gave a verdict of guilty and Judge Cowell fined each $10 and costs. Later he revoked this sen tence and fined Johnson and Lamb $20 each, and Downs and Kelly $25 each without costs in both instances. The next case begun was that of Olin P. Hart, charged with cruelly beating a horse on June 12. Officer Allen was the star witness for the prosecution and he told of seeing the accused beating the horse at 9 o'clock at night on Cedar street. When he remonstrated with him. Hart was im pudent and he placed him under arrest. Sergeant Blakeley and Henry Drake both testified to hearing the whipping of the horse. Officer Allen's cross-examination by Attorney Marsh elicited some strange remarks from Judge Cowell. Attorney Marsh tried to bring out the fact that the officer had some months ago swore to Daniel Bergin being in a saloon on a Sunday when it was raided. Bergin was convicted in the lower court but appealed and before the higher court he proved a complete alibi and was ac quitted. Attorney Bronson objected to that lino of enquiry, and then Judge Cowell said: "I remember the case of Bergen having been tried before me in the lower court, and it was proven that Bergen was there, and though he called some of his friends to his aid in an ef fort to prove an alibi, and although he succeeded in proving to the jury in the higher court that he was not there, yet I believe the jury was wrong." Court then adjourned until this morning. When court convened at 10 o'clock tho Hart case was resumed. Attorney Marsh introduced evidence to show that the horse was a colt and balky and Hart was using no more force than was necessary. The jury took the case and were out a half hour, when they returned with a verdict of not guilty. The case of Luke Stapleton was then taken up. Attorney Russell defended him. He was charged with owning a vicious dog. "May. 28 Charles Schmidt, a bicyclist, was badly bitten J.y a dog on Baldwin street. In the lower court Staploton tried to show that he was net the owner of the dog, but he was found guilty. Stapleton owns a dog similar to the one which did the biting and a.n alibi for Stapleton's dog will be the nature of the defense for the ac cused. ., Tortured For Tollgate Afoney. Middletowo, N.

Mr Miller, whose best work has been done in romantic roles and whose performance in "Sowing the Wind," "Gudgeons" and other Em pire theatre stock company successes, which are undoubtedly well remember ed, he has won signal success that is most gratifying. As Brie Temple, the hero of the play, he has a character that fits exactly into the best lines of his work. It possesses the charm of sentiment, the poetic quality, manly vigor and chivalric spirit so admirably suited to Mr Miller's graces of person ality and distinctive histrionic gifts.

An Elopement Leads to a Family Quar rel and Murder. Ridgefield, Conn., Sept. 24. Jealousy and the family bickerings growing out of a clandestine marriage culminated in a, sudden tragedy in the little 11 lre of Lewlsboro, N. T. Jamei Kelly, about 40 years old, who three week ago eloped with 15-year-old Flora Mead, shot and killed his father-in-law, J! Charles Mead. ' ' uf Lewlsboro, where the shooting oc-' curred. Is about a mile and a half from; Ridgefield, across the state line, 1n. Westchester county. Kelly met Mead's daughter here about four months ago and, despite the marked disparity of their ages, began to pay her marked at tention. Her parents objected, her fa ther in particular being very outspo ken in his disapproval. In spite of all this, however, Kelly had apparently caught the girl's fancy, for she continued to see him clandestine ly. Matters ran on thus until about five weeks ago, when Mead and his wife went to the seashore for an out- ing, leaving Flora at home. When they: returned, the girl was gone. It became known later that she and Kelly had taken advantage of the op portunity to go to North Salem, wljere they were married by the Rev. Mr. La- throp. The pair came back to Lewls boro, and Mead promptly forbade Kelly the house. The latter took his wife to the nearby house of her brother, Henry Mead, with whom they have sine ; boarded. Kelly's difficulties do not seem to have been confined to the disapproval of his father-in-law. Almost from the first he was wildly jealous of his girl wife, and their brief married life has been one long quarrel. Henry Mead did not oc cupy all the house to which. Kelly took his bride. A young German named Carl scnuesKi, a Dacneior, uvea on me ground floor, and Kelly soon began to fancy that his wife had found the younger man more to her liking. Kelly expressed his fears more explicitly and did not hesitate to charge his wife with, infidelity. In the denials and quarrels that fol lowed the girl's relatives naturally came to her rescue, and Kelly threatened re-' peatedly to leave her. Meanwhile Kelly had kept away from his father-in-law's house. Wednesday night he went there just after 8 o'clock In the evening. He had been in Ridge field during the day and, it has since been learned, bought a revolver here. Hs also drank some, but not enough to af fect him to any great extent appar ently. When Kelly reached Mead's house, his father-in-law was not at home. Mrs. . ivacttu wits Liiei vviui uei smaller t:iiii dren. Kelly vilified. her for a time and then started for his home. When he got there, he found Mead helping Carl Schlleske to put up a stove in the lat-; ter's first floor apartments.. ,, . Kelly's Hot Temper. The sight of him busily aiding his rival apparently fired Kelly's hot tem per past all controlling. In his rage he began to repeat all the things that he had said before and In particular flung the accusation of his wife's infidelity in her face, for she was there with the rest. - . Then he turned to his rival and open ly charged him with intimacy with the girl. This brought out a hot disclaimer from the young German. Meanwhile Mrs. Mead and her children had fol lowed Kelly, and the noise of the quar- rel brought all the other members of: the Mead family about. In the uproar that followed every voice was raised against Kelly and in support of the innocence of his girl wife and the young German. Kelly stood his ground for half an hour and then suddenly darted off. When he had been gone a few mo ments, the others of the party started out into the yard to look for him. They had hardly stepped across the threshold when Kelly sprang around the corner of the house and, grasping his wife . around the waist, kissed her passionate ly. Then, throwing her from him, he exclaimed: , . "This is the last time I will ever see you. I'm In for murder!" With that he dashed after his father-in-law, who had gone out into the road, and suddenly pointing a revolver at the old man's head fired twice. Kelly was not more than a yard from his victim. Mead was apparently tak en utterly by surprise. He made no at tempt to evade the pistol. As Kelly . fired the old man slowly sank to his knees and then toppled over, face for ward in the dust.

Carl Schlieske, James Manuel and John Robinson, neighbors, hurried up. and with their aid Kelly was quickly overpowered, but not be fore he had broken away from them. : :,. rr.unn , 5, r himself hufljUnnff' iiicii iic o r against a stone wall in an apparent at-., tempt to kill himself.

The dead man was carried into the house, and a neighbor hurried to in form Constable Bzra Scofield and Jus tice Seymour, who formally took charge of Kelly. Kelly feigned Insensibility as a result of his' self inflicted injuries, and for a time the physician who was called was in some doubt as to the seriousness of the wound. When Coroner Brush of White Plains came up to Lewisboro, however, the doctor concluded that Kelly could be safely moved to the Jail at White Plains. He was accordingly taken there and is now confined there. BUCKLEN'S ARNICA SALVE.
