niuksa'a f?at**1 ahtoatod, MM the board voted that they
should be produced.
Prosecutor Limiting WBI called by Mr. Hayes* counsel,
Mr. Allen, and said that lie had matte several applica?
tions to Justice Pitcher to make a report of bu official
business, but he had ucver doua so. Ha wus
conlldent that I'ltcher withheld from him a*
.??tute Prosecutor a list of wltuusses aud evidence
In numerous criminal matters, also that he visltod
Kariitiuiia-h the all-?od " llre-buir," In Joli, aud Imparted
to hliu evidence only kuown by hnu (Ptteh?i) u'id tbe
prosecution.
Theodore West, a police offlcer, testified that ha wn?.
ures?iit In the Police Court when complaints were nud.e
to Justice rucher agiiiost tha Saw-York banco
men. Pitcher told the complainants that the?
were Juat as guilty as the gatnhlun-.. and
If they insisted on making th? complaint
he would s? ml them to Jail unless tbcv gave heavy
1,1,11.1s. This scared the complainants, and tin y refused
to make affidavit?.
Jacob Hittlta, Editar of The Long Iiraneh Sew?, testi?
fied that Pitcher handed him a letter for pnhllc'tUitn,
refuting the charge that Samuel Hall was guilty of tirina
i.i- r.-l let:.-,.. Tint letter was puollshtd. Pit. her made
an emphatic denial 'bathe ever wrote this letter, and
tbia evidi nee created consternation in Pitcher'? camp.
A. Q. Lane, Justice of the peace, t.-stilted that several
complaints were made to Justice Pitcher against Mr?
Iandr.r, for keeping a bouse of lll-fsme. Justice Lano
hail also Heeii applied to for a warrant to close the bouse,
but the complainants would not make auy allidavits. lit
the fltoss STBWilnstlOBi Mr. Allen, for the State, de?
manded why the ?vidence that such a bouse had beca
complained of was not reported to the State*! Attorney.
Deputy-t.'olleotor Van llyke was ut this poiut called
for the Stale, hut Mr. Huey raised ohjectious to bis be
llig sworn. "Ho Is au olticlal," tic said, "that I will
attend to us soon as this ca?e Is fltiished."
Tbc principal witness sup|>ortlng Mr. Hoey? ctutrgn
was John Matthews, a colored waiter employed at tno
w est Bad Botel test summer. The altaste was arrested
test Bummer, and was ooanaed HI jail for several week?,
when Magistrate Pitcher came to him and said it ho
could get -Mut! hail bo would release him
and noiliflig further would be done In
the matter. Matthews gave Pitcher tbu $100.
and started tor bts Winter home at Waahragtoa. No in
dtetment ??;,* found against Matthew*, and in aapaanbef
beoaaat oa to Long UnaoA ami a-k.-d nanear tor tu*,
money. Pitcher said lie would send it to lian as soon
as he re. cived it from the Court Matthew*
had written several letton to Pitcher demanding
bis money, but never received it. Plebor's counsel said
the money had been sent to .Matthews'* lawyer, but It
leaked out in the BrOSBOXSmlBBItOS that the money
was sent only when the fraud was exposed In the
puhlic prints last wi ek.
Other testimony of little Importance wai Iben oil-Ted,
when the prosecution rested and a recess was takes.
The court assembled ??alu at 4 p. m., and Mr. Nevins
on. mil "for t!ie defence, uial.lu** a geneial deiihil. Mag?
i-tiate Pitcher thea took tin-stand In nls own behalf.
and the counsel lor the State found bim a pretty diltl

Pitcher* counsel iicro rested, and Pro*ecntor

Nevins took uii nearly un hour In closing up for
tin- defence. Mr. Alb-n. Mr. Hns/'S counsel, then
