Constable Claims That "Mrs. Gill ing Is Not Injured to Any Serious Extent. He Gives His Side of the Assault Story. The Officer Will be Tried Monday Morning. New developments continup to present, themselves in the trouble arising from Constable Grant Bow man's attempt to'secure on a writ of replevin a, horse held by Budion, the Copley township Hungarian. As told in Thursday's Democrat Jacob Gilling made information before Justice P. H. Hoffman, charg ing Bowman with assault and bat tery upon the person of his wife, Kate Gilliug. In response to a tele phone message from Constable John Vosburg, Bowman came to the city and gave bond in the sum of $50 for his appearance at a hearing set for Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Both sides of the story in the new development follow: Gilling states that Bowman's at tack upon his wife was unprovoked. He also claims that shooting was done by .the officers. When Bow man attempted to place handcuffs on Gilling, his wife appeared and re monstrated with the officer, where upon he kicked her in the stomach, injuring her so badly that she had to be carried into the house, placed in bed and a physician called to attend to her injuries. The handcuffs were then removed from Gilling's hands, upon request to go into the house to see his wife. Shortly afterwards, it is alleged, Bowman- went to the door, and finding it locked, crushed it in with an ax. Gilling was hold ing by the.hand a little child, whom the officer, it is stated, grabbed away from the father and hurled into a corner, injuring the little" one con siderably. Mrs. Gilling is a daughter of Hud ion. Her husband has placed their case against Bowman in the hands of Attorney J. E. Seiber, who will endeavor to prove that Bo wman was acting in the matter without author ity, having secured the writof replev in in Portage township and executing it in Copley. He will also place in evidence testimony calculated to show that the violence used by the officer and his deputies was unpro voked. Bowman is inclined to treat the matter lightly, and seems confident of proving himself innocent of the charge of assault and battery. He claims that when he was hand cuff ing Gilling, the latter's wife came to his rescue, attempting to scratch his face, pull his hair, .and beat him with her fists. Shortly after this she was taken into the house. Bowman also entered the building to ascertain the extent of her injuries. She was was in bed when he entered, but when she saw him she sprang out on the floor and pointing her finger at him she exclaimed: "There's the cuss that killed me." Bowman thinks Mrs. Gilling's in juries, which were reported Thurs day evening as being of a very ser ious character, are merely being pre tended and that her being in bed is for the effect of giving gravity to the case. . Considerable interest is being mani fested and tho outcomo of the trial Monday is being discussed with ninny conjectures. Saturday special sale of Children's Vestee Suits ofc $8.50, worth $1 and $5.

Fish was lined $25 and costs by Judge Kohler Friday after noon. An indictment was returned against Fish, charging him with shooting with intent to kill and wound. Prosecutor Wanamaker rec ommended that this be withdrawn and that the. defendant he allowed to plead guilty to assault and battery. The court acted on the Prosecutor's recommendation. It will be remembered that Fish shot and wounded Harvey Spangler, sometime ago, in the latter's home in Boston township. Both men were intoxicated. Fish has claimed that lie feared Spangler intended to in jure him. An officer from Brooklyn was present. He would have testi fied, tho defense said, that Spangler was a dangerous man when under the influence of liquor. Judge Kohler said it was a most difficult task to do justice in the case. Fish, who is an old man, is without property and the questionof his fu ture welfare is a serious one. The court said that his return to Boston would he followed by heavy drink ing. A brother who was present was asked if he could not care for Fish. He gave an evasive answer to the question. C. T. Grant, gurdian of Fish will try to look after him. Judge Kohler asked the prisoner what he expected to do if released. Fish, who evidently has the im pression that he is still wealthy, re plied that he whould go into the real estate business. As he has neither lands or money the outlook for him is not an encouraging one. Four Times Married. An Inquest, on the lunacy of Hiram L. Morey, was held at the unfortu nate man's home Friday by Judge Anderson. Morey, who is 48 years of age, believes that he is sick. Dr. W. W. Leonard testified that he was not. Morey was found in bed. He was adjudged insane. The alleged lunatic was. .married when IB years of age. Since then he has hnd three other wives, being divorced from the last. Probate Refused.
