S fl lK BIG BUSINESS IN CRIMINAL COURT Twenty.Tnree Cases Disposed of Dor lot tbe First Day. BIG JIM" DUNN CAUSES A STIR lie Disserts on What Are Cubs and What Are Not (inns and tiring a Protest from a Nan Kitting- Among the Spectator". nnr Plead (iailty and a Number oi Prosecutions Withdrawn. Neatly the whole forenoon yester day, the first day of the December term of criminal court was spent In taking confessions of guilt from defendants who realized that there wus no hops f proving their innocence; and also In settling cases where the uggrieved par ties did not wish to prosecute. Just as court adjourned a jury went out to deliberate on the doings of two Talk Hill families, the Henleys nnd he Kellvs. James P. Kelly is charged by Mrs. Kllen Henley with pointing a pistol. Mrs. Henley Is charged by James P. Kelly, wttn assaun ami um tery. Mr. Bridget Kelly, wife f James P. Kellv. also alleges assault nnd bat tery ag'ainst Mrs. Henley. John Hen ley, Mrs. Henley's son. charges James V. Kellv with assault and battery. Attorney James J. O'Malley was pri vate counsel for the Henleys. Attor ney M. J. Walsh represented the Kel lys. District Attorney Jones took a hand in the prosecutions. All .ur cases were tried simutaneously and given to the Jury in a bunch. TKOUBI.H HEOAX. July 13 last, Kelly was walking home with his two children when Henley, who. he alleges, had sworn to have his life, came up behind him and lilt him on the head with a stone. He was about to throw n second stone when Kelly overpowered him, took the stone from him anil pounded him In the face with It. Kelly's wife and Henley s mother came upon the scene about this time. Mrs. Henley, so Mrs. Kelly al leges, had a stone In lvr hand and was about to hurl It at Kelly when she Jumped In to save her husband. Sirs. Henley thereupon caught hold of her and gave her a violent shukins. which, on account of her physical condition, laid her up In bed under the doctors care for a long time. When Kelly saw three of Mrs. Hen ley's daughters approaching he feared he snys that his wife and himself, but particularly his wife, would be don J to death by the quintette of Henleys, and In desperation run to the house of -lilg Jim" Dunn, where he siezed an ol.l tirtny musket and returning to the fray ordered the Henley's to disperse. The Henley's and their score or so of witnesses sal.l that they were beating and honorable retreat when Kelly re turned with the gun and that he aimed at Mrs. Henley and pulled the trigger. They ulso aver that when the gun failed to go off he cursed Jim Dunn and his gun. as both being no good. There were many interesting bits of testimony vouchsafed for one side or the other, but the star witness of the duv was "llig Jim" Dunn: It was your gun, was It ? asked the district attorney. "It was no gun at all, at all, replied Dunn. . , . , "Hut didn't It have B lock, stork, barrel, trigger hammer and the other parts of a gun?" "Naw, It was only an old thing that the children played with." "Didn't it look like a gun?" Ol'NS AND GUNS. "Well, that wouldnt muke It a gun. Did you ever see anything more tue shape of a man than a woman and vet she Isn't a man. It was no gun, Mr. Jones, 1 tell you." Hut didn't you Just now hear Mr. Owens testify that it was a gun?" "Him. Hobby Owens? Sure he was that way. your honor, that If he looked down the muzzle of It he wouldn't know It was a gun or what It was. Huh, Hobby Owens." Just then Mr. Owens Jumped up from his seat among the spectators and In great Indignation shouted at Judge Ounster: "Your honor, I don't want to be publicly insulted In court. You make him stop that." It was some -moment before order could be restored and Dunn Induced to tell what he knew without arguing with the district attorney. The case was submitted without ar gument and Judge Gunster refrained from attempting to review the lengthy and conllicting testimony, conllning himself to brief Instructions regarding the law and the duty of the Jury. William Palmer, who broke Into An gelo Hartonl's residence, opposite the county Jail and stole a quantity of clothing, pleaded guilty and was sen tenced to one year and six months at hard labor In the Eastern penitentiary; also to restore the stolen goods, and pay a fine of $1 and the costs of prose cution. Patrick Doughor pleaded guilty of as sault and battery on Louise Dougher and got ten days in the county Jail be sides the customary $1 and costs Stephen Blshok had no defense to the charge of assault and battery pre ferred by Michael Tacko and was given one month In the county Jail. A plea of guilty was entered by Da vid McManus, the lad who tapped Peter Zlegler's till for $53. He was remand ed for sentence. The Dickson Manufacturing com pany did not want to push the case against Patrick Mullarkey, who, while Intoxicated one night last summer stole a lot of brass from the company's works and on his pleading guilty and expressing remorse he was let olT with ten days In the county jail. HE STOLE APPLES. Wallen Krouchuck pleaded guilty of stealing apples he said a few, the prosecutor. Clayton Clark, said half a bushel. Judge Gunster thought two months In the county jail sullicient punishment. William Leonard got three months when he confessed himself guilty of stealing two chickens from Mrs. Mar garet Callahan. Edward Day, charged with malicious mischief about a railroad, pleaded guilty and was remanded for sentence. John Hhumskey pleaded guilty to two charges of burglary preferred by An thony Galevets and Anthony Kurtner and was remanded for sentence until Saturday.
