LOCAL NEWS.
The Case of John F. Lusby. Charged with
the Urutal Violation of the Little
Girl, Uctavie Ros?eau.
We stated yesterday that John F. Lusby,
charged with the terrible violation of Octavie
Kosseau, a child six years of age, resulting In
her dea:h. had been brought up before Judge
Fisher, in the criminal court room, on a writ
of halu at corpus.
Probably no criminal casein this commu
nity for years has created more intense excite
ment, both from the horrible nature ol the
crime and from the feeling of dread arising in
every breast that some one near and dear to
them may stand in peril of similar outrage if
the guilty party or parties in this instance es
cape detection.
The discovery of the singular chain of cir
cumstantial evidence leading to the arrest of
the accused by superintendent Wood served
to revive the feeling in the community, which
had somewhat dwindled under th* belief that
no clue to the guilty party was likely to be
found.
It will be remembered that the outrage upon
the little girl we.s committed on the night of
Thanksgiving Day, bv a person described by
Octavie Rosseau as oressed in a soldier's coat,
who accosted lier while .standing at the gate of
her father's house ou Capitol Hill, and per
suaded her to assist him in searching for a sum
of money he pretended to have lost. Having
thus decoyed her from her home, he placed his
hand over her mouth to prevent her from cry
ing out, and then took'her into an alley and
there violated her person in the most shocking
manner, from the injuries of whicb she died
about 11 o'clock the next night. The outrage
was committed somewhere between the hours
of 5 and 9 p. ro., tne exact time being undet?r
mined, from the fact that the little girl was so
terribly injured tf.at she lay almost senseless
in the alley perhaps for hours after the occur
rence.
Unparalleled e/ertions were made both by
the police and the military authorities to bring
the criminal to light, and a minute examina
tion was made in all tb? military camps in the
vicinity for any soldier's doming bearing
marks of-blood or stains of the filth of the
alley that might serve as a clue to the guilty
party, but ail these searches tailed, and (he in
vestigation was nearly given over as hopeless
until circumstances coming to the know ledge
ol Mr. Wood, superintendent of the Old Capi
tol prison, canted that energetic official to in.
sti: ate proceedings for the arrest of Lusby.
The pi-soner, who has been working in the
boiler shop at the Navy Yard, was at one time
in the three months service. He is most re
sp? clably connected, an ' has a young and es
timable wife.
Bis personal appearance, as we have al
ready stated, wouiti not indicate him to be o'a
brutal nature. Phrenologist* and physioguo
mis:s alike would agree in this. His faoe is
ldld and the casiof hu head decidedly more lu
teli-ctual than animal.
At the examination vesterday, the firs; wit
ness called was
l>r. Ckarlf* -W. Ford, sworn.?I am a physi
cian, and have been practicing in this city for
one year. Wl'ness was called upon iu a pro
fessional capacity to visit a little Kirl, Octavie
Pousseau, living on the corner of B street and
Delaware avenue, about a fortright since. I
first called to see her at six o'clock, or a little
alter six, in the morning. She was alive at the
time, bat in a very prostrated condl'ion, and
crying out with great pain. Her mother told
me that she had b*<<a violated. I aafced to see
her clothes. 1 was shown fer; ondcroiothe*,

remained on y a few minutes, and then went
to Dr. May'*, whom I asked to go and see the
child with me. He returned with me, and
made an examination In my pre??no*. This
was about half an hour after my first visit.
We .hen left, and 1 called again about I o'clock
in the ait?rnoon, wh-n I found her In very se
vere convulsions. The next morning about <
o'clock the father came awl told m- that the
little pirl had died about H o clock the preoe

A; 1 think they did.
1 he District Attorney.?The marks will be
analyzed properly by experts, to ascertain
their character.
Witness resumingThis was after the ar
rest of the prisoner. I found the shirt utider tut,
pillow ol the bed, in whioh I suppose Mr. and
Mrs. Lusby were aecustomed to s leep, aud the
eoat between two quil'?, on the sa:ne bed. Tho
prisoner did not see these clothe* atvr I got
them, to my knowledge. 1 talkeu with him
some little about the facts, but said rothiug
to him about the clothes. He said he was In
nocent, and knew nothing abont it. 1 had the
talk with him after I got the clothes. I did not
come to prison with him wneu he was arrested.
The woman's apparel was found iti the same
room, but not near these clothes. The priso
ner's <,Iothes were found In the b d His coat
was folded lengthwise, ail nia.ed between
the tw o quilts. It v.*as pla ?-i on one side of
the led.
Q. Of what did the woman's apparel con
sist i A. Of drawers and other un lercl?th>is. Q.
Was there any blood on them. A. Yes, sir, a
great deal. I saw tho chemise, but I am not
certain whether I took that along or not. (4.
Did these drawers seem to be'hose of a full
sixed woman or of a child. A. I suppose they
would fit a full sized woman.
William P. Wood, (Superintendent Old Oapi
tol Prisons,worn?I recognize this clothin*
as the clothing brought by Mr. WlHoa from
I^usby's bouse. He at first brought somM cloth
ing w hich I presume was Lusby's wife's, it
being woman's apparel, and so 1 told him to
return and get Lusby's own; that he would
find the shirt with the front part washed on*,
and blood on the wristbands.
Q. Did you have anv conversation with th?
prisoner f A. I had. He was in the room when
Wilson cime with his wife's clothe.', and heard
I>u?-by say his wife was sick. Thai evening,
or the next morning, when I interrogated him
about the blood on his clothes, he Intimated
that his wife was sick. Q. Periodical sickness?
A. Yes, sir. I says to hun. "But, Lusby, this
blood has been on the clothes for some days;
and besides, you know on the evening of this
occurrence, when you went home with your
bands bloody, and "with nlcod on your cl-> hes,
and commenced washing this blood ott', you
told yonr wife, when she inquired ho j? you
got that blood on you. that you had been butch
er.ug." Says he, ?Yes, I told her that ' 1
then asked him how he did get it. He ?ays, ?'l
suppose my note had bten bleeding, or 1 had
teen fighting." Savs 1 to him, "Oh, I.,usby,
that tale won't do." We common ed talking
about other mnt'ers, and finally he admitted
he wa<: drunk that day, and therefore couldn't
tell what he had bren doing. Q. Did y:>u shaw
him this clothing? A. No, sir, but I teld h m I
bad it. He was present when W :l?on brougut
in Ills wife's clotheing, and li-ard me tell
him to take that back and gat nis iLusoy's)
blue coat and shirt. t>. What explanation do
you say he gave abcut get'ing the blood on his
clothes ! A. He said he could n^t account f?r
It. He had been drinking that dsy an J every
thing was a mystery to him from about twelve
o'clock. When he cp ke of his wife being sick
I told hlm of the impoc-sib lity of his getting
that blood on his c!o ties whiare it was from
his wife; that it was only on that part of the
wristband that the coat exposed, lie after
wards said that he might have got the blood on
therefrom bleeding at the nose ??. Did you
mention the jircnmstance of this little girl s
death to him f A. 1 did, and told him how I
got the Information abcut his clothes. That
his wife had lirst given the information to par
ties from whom I had obtained it, and that
through his wife's sister had come the infor
mation about these clothes. He a.sk*d me if 1
had gotten It directly from her. I told him no,
that I did not know her, but 1 had gotten it in
directly. Seeing he was considerate v exert, ised
about it, I remarked to bimthat I did not want
him to conless to me or commit himself in any
way, for I had no authority to interrogate him.
The civil authorities would ia\estimate the
matter. I have had few conversations with
him since that time.
Cross-examination Wnen I inadj these re
marks to him he asked me if the girl had said
that he did it ? 1 told him she had not. He
then spoke of his being drunk ariTl kujwinc
nothing of what he did that day This wa->
two or three days after the death of the cbild.
When 1 told him of what his wife's sister had
said, he remarked that she was not friendly to
him, that he had forbidden her the house, and
that she would do anything to injure him. He
neither admitted nor denied that he had seen or
knew this child. 1 was no' present when he
had the conversation with Mr. Wilsou. Hedid
on a subseq uent occasion deny it positively to
me. He admitted to me that be had told his wife
that he got the blood on bis clothes by butchering.
He told me the blood might have got t>n hie
clothes from his nose bleeding, or from fighting.
No one but the prisoner and myself were pres
ent at this conversation. He was arrested three
days niter the death of the child, and his been
in my custody ever since. Nobody has seen
him, to my knowledge, but his brother, his
wife, aud the employoes of the prison, who at
tend on his cell. As far as I know of, no
complaint has been made before any Justice of
the Peace or any warrant issued.
The Government not havirg any other wit
nesses in attendance, the turther heariug of the
case was defeired un til Monday afiernoor. at
3 o'clock, and the prisoner was remanded to
the custody of the Marshal, who sent him to jail,
