Cbsrles Jackson, or Buchanan, who, 011 the
night ot April vi last, in Chris Jo:,uson'a
saloon, at Sixth avenuo aud Ninth street,
knifed to death Mamie Murphy, whose dis
carded lover he was, mid who left him because
of his Jealousy aud brutality, was brought
down from tno Tombs this morning for acu
tenco. Ills plea of guilty of uianslanchter In the first
degree bad been acceptod by Judge Marline,
last Friday, upon recommendation of Assistant
District Attorney l'nrker, who said lie was
sstlatied that it would bo Impoaalble to convict
Johnson of the crime for which he waa lndloted
murder In the first degree.
Jackson waa brought down by Deputy
Sheriff Jack Lynch, at 10.45 o'clock. They
walked through the rain handcuffed together,
without an umbrella, Jackson considering It
a treat to get out and feel the raindrops on his
pallid cheeks after bis long confinement.
Hugh Murphy, the father of tho murdered
girl, who, as told In yesterday's Evenimi
Woki.ii, had called upon Aaalstant District.
Attorney Barker aud protested agalnat Jack
son's ploa being accepted, as he claimed there
was competent testimony that Jackson had
made threats to kill his aaughter Mamie, came
to tho Court-House early and waited anxiously
for the court to open.

hud visited bin home, 41s West blxiccnth street
late yesterday afternoon snd listened to tho

threstenod Mamie a few days before the
Murphy said Mr. Porker bad told him that
Mrs.Mnrphy would make a better witness tbsn
he had thought when Murphy first told him the
story, and that he would move that Jackson's
plea ot manslaughter be rejected, and wonld
ask that Jackson be placed on trial for the
crime for which he was Indicted.
Assistant District-Attorney Parker had ex
pressed his regret, Murphy said, that he had
not known of thla evidence before he bad con
curred in accepting Jackson's pies, but now
having learned that good testimony of Jsck
son's Intent to kill waa available, be would do
all In bis power to rectify tne mistake and
bring the alsyer of Murphy's daughter to trial.
To an Evening Wuhld reportor Assistant
Dlstrlot-Attorney Parker said that Murphy's
statement was substantially correct. He had
called upon Mrs. Murphy, he said, and, alter
bearing her story, he bad decided to ask a
postponement ot sentence until Monday, to
give btm an opportunity to thoroughly examine,
thn new testimony as to Jackson's alleged In
tent to kill, and upon which he would ask that
Jackson's plea be rejected and ho be placed on
Mr. Barker accordingly placed the case, with
Its new developments, before Judge Martine,
who granted tho postponement of sentence
until Monday aa requested.
Jackson was taken back to the Tomes.
He did not know tho cause of the postpone
ment of his sentence, or that he might yet be
placed on trial for bis life, but was mnch dis
appointed, as be would be glad to escape wltb
a term of Imprisonment.
