rotunda shortly attetwa a ana asueu
for an explanation of his course. "So
man ran keep order in that court, as
you know, without the lacking ot the

treated; when I got to the Stttton
House Mits Norment was there; I
do not know Mr. Tboinw McGraw,
nor do I know Mr. Schnider; I did
not see Mr. Henry Arnold when I
went inta the stoie, but there was a
young man or bov in there ; atter I
left Mr. Arneld's store I did not speak
to any oneon the sidewalk or an
where else until I w?nt into Mr.
Wooten's store; yee, I did meet a
lady, who said to me. "Bell 1 1" and I
said to ber, "Hello!" but I did not
recognizs her; I did nt stop; she
set mad to knsw me; this was all that
passed between ua; she was going to
ward Heraando ftreet; I don't know
whrtber it waa Miss Norment or not ;
it was mar Mr. Arnolds store, t9
twoen his and Mr. Wootan's; the
words "Hallo! halb!" was all that
was said; I did not sen ner until l
saw tier at tne rsiauon-tiouw; ivtaa
in Wooten e store for about ntieen or
twenty minu't'a before I hea'd

ttnra and near the corner of Beale and
Second streets I was arrested ; 1 did
not notice how the lady I met waa
drffs?d. as we lust passed Dy eacn
othnr: I know howl was dressed; I
had on a dark, steel-colored drets; I
don't know whether she had on a wig
or not; Mihs Norment had on no wig
nor Hoe ribbon a- the Station-Houso.
Croaw.iiinf. My name is Mattie
Yates; I have no other name; I once
bad tbe name of Mattie Brackett; I
had that name about seven years ago,
hut I have ouit it now.
Justice Winters I thought the

up the street and l did not meet or

Mr. Norment or Miss Norment at the

o'.her evening; I don't think I said
Miss Emma Norment was the woman
who did tbe shooting, although Mr.
Wooten had told me tint Emma Nor
ment bad ehot Henry Arnold before I
left the store; I did not go with Miss
Norment to buy a wig, nor did I tell
ber what kind of a whig to get ; I did
not go to Mrs. Grey 'a millinery tore
with Mies Norment ; we were children
together in 1873; when I was first ar

getting me to go into A-norld's store;"
I did not go iuto hia stole to git him

Brackett, who was arrested at the time
of tbe killing and held in the Station
House over night ai an accessory to
the crime. Being sworn, witness said:
Mv name is Mattie Yatea : on tbe 17ih
of March I was in Memphis and went
to the stote of Mr. Arnold for the pur
pose of baying some mixed pickles ; I
then went to the store of Mr. Wooten,
next door to Mr. Arnold's, afttr I
failed to get them at Arnold s ; 1
wanted to buv the pickles for
old m9n FiBher and his wife
I had not seen Miss Emma Norment
on that day, nor did I mt et her near
Arnold's or Wooten's store; tbe laBt
time 1 saw Emma Norment, the lait
time before meeting her at tho S ation
House wasin 1873: wnen I went ta Mr.
Arnold'e store he directed me to go
next door to Mr. Wooten's; while in
Mr. Wnntnn'a store I heard a shot
fired; it was before I left tbe store and
while I was at the counter waiting lor
tbe pickles; I know it was that night
I heard tbe shot fired; Mr. Wooten
and I were both standing at the coun
ter, and after the shot was fired Mr.
Wooten walked to the door; he came
bice and said a young lady had shot
Mr. Arnold : I think be said the lady
was Mies Norment; he t'so said the
young lady lived some six or eight
miles it ilia country ; after I got my
fickles I immediately left, and before
ont far I nraa arretted and carried to
the Stition-Hous; I know I had not"
snoken to Mias Norment since 1873; I
had no conversation with ber that
evening in fiont of Mr. Arnold'e store
or anywhere else: I bad no conversa
tion with anyone: I did talk with
Mias Norment in the Station-House
Defendant's counsel What was that
conversation, and what did Mis Kmma
Norment say to you 7

rinnrt The objection is sustained
Witneee It was about one half
any time prior to the coiing of the jjjeg nvej right together out at Cen
evidence the State might introduce trai p0int.
u t han introduced bv the defendant
He testified: I live at Olive Branch,
Mies.; I waa acquainted with Henry
Arnold and knew Mies JNormem oy
sight; I bad a talk with Arnold here
tn ftiempnis acoui mo ibi u uvku
ber last; I met him on the street; we
went in to take a glass oi Deer, wueu
Arnold aeked me how my lamuy were;
I said, "All are well ;" I then eaid,
"How is your family, Henry?" and 1
said, "I have no family;" I said
thought "from what I heard you would
have one by now," and he t a'd""You
ate mistaken;" 1 then saio, - now aro
you going to get outot me matter, anu
how did yon manage to do what von
have done ?" He said, "I promised to
marry her(Emnia Norment )andby that
promise I got away with her, but I
.111 navnr mtnv her." He then asked
me if I had seen the cbild, and I told
him no. He eaid: "Well, promise",
you know, are like pie-cruets, easily
k.nlran "
Gen. Turner Did you and Arnold
ever have a fuss?
Answer No, sir.
Gen. Turner Did not Arnold ac
cuse you of stealing $40 from him, and
is thtre not hatred on your part
toward the Arnolds?
Answer No, sir; no euch thing o:
curred. Here Justice Winters said Gen.
Tnrner "had no re'pect for himself or
the witness either."
Gen. Turner I hope your honor
will excuse Justice Winders, as he has
not sense enongh to be responsible for
what be says. I do really think be is
Justice Winters Yea, if you had
your jnat deeerte yon would now be
in the County Jail.
Gen. Turner Yes, and if you had
yours you would be aervicg out life

This would bo a great public benefit

vour I ii i ii .rnhle bodv to tbe propriety
and advisability of opening a new
avenue mid thoroughfare, for cominu

ii.i ,,,iiifin of the Eighth Ward com
in iiilv known as Scotland is and has
been since it was settled up conipnra

in that noarh'r have been and are stil
,.ll...l to travel llllll'll out of I

Market House or any poition of tin'
luisinesa mirt of the town. As a con
sequence, this part of the town has not
,m,in na n otherwise ilcsinmie sunn
tion would enable it to do.
Petitioners suggest ns reasons in
favor of the measure, that the open
ing of such streets as will enable the
people to come more directly into
town would greatly increase the value
of property, and would quickly bring
this portion ol North Memphis to the
very front for desirable residence
tironertv. thus greatly increasing tax
able vnlues and adding to tbe revenue
of the city.
Petitioners further show that the
obstacles which have heretofore
existed in tho way of this develoti
..,,.t ,,f flip ritv have been recently
removed. Tbe large large bodies of
land lying west of Thornton avenue
which have heretofore been entangled
in litigation have recently become
rested and settled in the owner
ship of energetic nnd enterprising
citizens und petitioners arc informed
that the necessary righl of way and
their substantial co-oeration in the
making ol the improvement promised,
ran be secured upon most advanta
geous conditions.
Petitioners arcfurther inforaied that
in contemplation of this very improve
ment, many years ago Col. James con-vovi-il
to thn cifv a strin of ground
fifty feet wide and running from Mar-
t..t to winciiesier sireei. ior uie pur-
that every portion ol the city might .

Hadden said Madison street migiii tie
oiM-ned through llenrv avenue to tho
Uinsdaleplnce; that Tin ley street
should lie extended from Beale to
iavoso; Ijiiidenlah' from I liion to
Monroe, and to the Memphis ami

Frame proportv, the M.-nipriis anu
Charleston railroad would have to
build a bridge over the street and
that Pontotoc and Linden streets, if
extended, would have to lie built un

following prcamblo and resolution for
the consideration of your honorable
W'hkhkas, In view of the well
known fact that imiiMrism with it
long train of attending evils, "ma curse
to the earth, and as insullioiont wages
to thine compelled to w ork for wages
is a common factor in the production
of pauperism, and as it is lose exon
sivo to tho tax-paver to pay living
wages to tho healthy, law abiding
laborer, than to support tbo aick pau
per or the criminal, and as one dollar
and twenty-live cents ($1 2-") per day
is not enough to keep men with fami
lies from becoming paupers or crimi
nals: therefore be it
R,'M. That we most lwpectfully
petition the Hoard of Fire und Police
OomniiKsioners of tho Shelby county
Taxing District, that on and after
January 1, lNSil, that the laborers em
ployed 'by the Taxing District bo paid
not' loss than two dollars f2) per day

just compensation for tin labors per-
