NELSON COLUKRT'S T1UAL-
All thn Testimony in nnd tlio Argument
Kmled A Verdict or Uullty.
Tho trial of Nelson Colbert, charged
with the murder of Philip AVenzol, com
menced yesterday, was resumed this
morning. Tho Government introduced
a number of witnesses, who wcro present
at the sceno of the shooting. Wcnzcl
was a popular old white, man employed
as superintendent or stable boss at tlio
Columbia car stables. He was 01) years
nld'aml-wlts.falnllinrly known as "Pap."
ThCbd' .rutin had reproved Colbert for
not'httemlinB'lU'WJs-dutlcs of unhitching
the horses as thoy camo.up to tho stable
and told him to go liome.4
Colbert demanded his pay, cursing tho
old man, who tapped him on the breast
with a stick which he was in tho habit
of carrying about tho'placo.saying: "You
ought to be ashamed to talk to an old
man like that." Colbert stepped back,
pulled u pistol, nnd tired the ball passing
through tho heart and several of tho
other internal organs. Colbert took the
stand in his own defensu yesterday af
ternoon. He said that ho had no inten
tion of kllliug tho old man. Pap had
asked liiin to work and ho had drunk u
large amount of liquor.
He went to. sleep in a stall nnd Pap,
after waking him up, rou'clily told him
to go homo as ho was drunk. He re
monstrated at not being allowed to work,
an I n crowd collected. Pap, ho said,
struck him two, three or four times in
tho forehead. Tho crowd pressed toward
him, and in order to frighten them off
ho put his hand in ills pocket to pull a
pistol. In jerking it out of his pocket
tho pistol went off nnd struck Pap. Ho
did not know ho had killed him until
some one Informed him of it..
On cross-examination ho detailed to
Mr. Lipscomb where ho wont after tho
affair. Ho had put tho pistol in his
pocket to defend himself against a dan
gerous dog. He denied having had any
trouble with a man named Wehausen.
Testimony was intioduced showing
that there was a slight wound on his
head thu next day.
A number of witnesses tcstiilcd as to
Colbert's good reputation fur-pence and
good order. SoYoral witnesses failed to
respond nnu tlio court was uciaycu in us
business. Dr. L. C. Loomls was lined $1
and costs of serving tho nttachmout that
hail been issued for being into, and
Moses Wood was lined $1.
In rebuttal Charles Wehauson testified
that Colbert had assaulted him thirteen
or fourteen years ago with a pruning
knife. Colbert was tccallcd to tlio stand
nnd said that his undo had' gomn
troublo with AVclmuson; us to himself,
ho was about 10 years old at that time.
Mr. Montgomery made tho opening to
the jury. Judge Snell, followed by
Unptnlii Prlnco. spoke for tho prisoner.
Tlio jury took tho case at 2:10 and in
ono hour exactly returned a verdict of
guilty of muidcr.

P. II. U.,
It was postmarked at Alexandria, Jan
unry lfi, 7 a. m., but did not reach thu
oillco early enough to bo engraved for
tiiinaucrnonn s paper, out It will uo re
produced to-morrow. The words printed
ou the card road: "Visited by a delega

honor that Is fully appreciated.
"I think thoy aro seared," said Captain
Webster, chief of tho'Alexandrla pollco,
this morning, "and that the White Caps
will keep quiet now until court is over
and the grand Jury Is dismissed."
Tlio Captain was asked wlint ho
thought of tho clues that point to tho gen
tleman referred to elsewhere In this ar
ticle as a moving spirit among the Whlto
Caps, and ho Bald: "I havo heard inti
mations of that sort, but of course I

A young mnn, who is seen nbout in
company with tio gang of small gam
blers who mako Alexandria their head
quarters, said this morning that last
night a friend of his hud been whipped
in an alloy near tho lire englno lioutc.
Ho seemed norvoils when closely ques
tioned about tho source of his informa
tion and lie spent this morning nbout tho
ferry boats as if not much Inducement
would bo necessary to mako him leave
tho town. It is possible that ho knows
more than he tells of; tho White Caps'
A boy named Charier Sncil received a
notice to stay at homo nights or take tho
consequences of tlio White Caps' Iro of
Mr. Origgsby, who takes tickets ou tlio
ferryboat that runs to tliis. city, also re
ceived a vpry threatening letter, nnd tlio
men nbout the ferryhousu say that ho
has seen fit to pay quito a considerable
necu to tuo wiute uaps aumouitions.
Thoy say, too, that Captain Scott of
the steamer Arrowsmith received a letter
commenting very severely on his per
sonal habits and warning him to stop do
Ing several things, but thu clover Captain
says that ho didn't, and that he never
heard of such a Iking as Whlto Caps in
No more letters sent by tho White Cans
later than last Fiiday have vot como'to
light, nnd it is ifkcly that Captain Web
ster's surmise that they, nro waiting till
court is over to recommence their work
is tho correct one.
And really there is a considerable
drift of public sentiment that commends
the White Caps' operations because their
victims have for the most part been men
who wcro perhaps not entirely undeserv
ing f tho treatment they received.
The oxcltemont in tins old town over
the matter is growing constantly, and a
number of eltl.ciis have asked thu
Mayor's permission to carry revolvers.
It is understood, too, that quito n mnn
bcrof men liayo armed themselves and
aro prepared to givo any "Whlto Caps that
may attack them a warm reception.
Thero Is also somo talk of a counter-organization
for the purpose of finding out
just who compose tho White Caps' organ
ization. A Snsi'KCTKP MAN.
Thero nro many things that point to a
man in tho employ of tho city govern
ment as ono who knows something about
tho inside workings of tlio White Caps
and indued it is asserted by some that he
is their captain. Tho writer cannot,
without violation of confidence, tell tho
reason that this man is suspected.
Whon tho reporter wont to his houso
this mornlngnnd rang thu bell otio of his
family came to tho door.
"Yes, Mr. is in," slio said," and I
will call him.
Sho went into tho room back of tlio
parlor and thu buz of a controversy came
through the almost-shut door.
Then a young man apparently about
thirty years old eyed the reporter through
tho crack in tho door for an instant.
Then a pleasant, motherly lady eamo
into tlio parlor, shutting tho door tightly
after her, aud said tlint licrsou was not at
A few leading questions from tlio re
porter failed to make the lady say any
thing interesting, and, when sho was told
point plank that her son was said to be
the captain of thu White Caps, she
scotned nervous and said: "All I can tell
you is that I don't know anything

"Well, then," sho continued, with n,

Tlio kindly old lndy's concern was
really touching, but really her conversa

point to her son as, a White Capper.
