PAGE THREE WITNESSES TELL OF ALLEGED MM FORMER JEROME NIGHT' OFFICER BOUND OVER! FOR TRIAL ON CHARGE OF ASSAULT. (From Thursday's Daily. At the conclusion of his second pre liminary hearing, Herbert Wilson, former night officer at Jerome, was yesterday in Justice Mc Lane's court bound over to the Superior court for trial on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon. At his first prelim mary hearing, before Justice S. F. Dcnison, of Jerome, several weeks age the charge was dismissed. Deputy i County Attorney Joscpn Morgan wa. not satisfied, however, caused Wilson to be again arrested and yestcr.la produced witnesses whose testimony regarding the alleged brutality shown by Wilson, when he assaulted Gdsj Silva jn Jerome on the night of May 1st, was almost unbelievable. The prosecution of the case is being handled by Attorney Morgan and Wilson's defense by Attorney C. II. Rutherford, of Jerome, and J. F. Russell. The specific charge against Wilson is that he, while an officer in Jerome, struck Silva, known as "Portuguese Joe," several times with the barrel of his revolver and otherwise assaulted hiii), with the' result that Silva was confined to a hospital several weeks. Silva was the first witness called by Morgan yesterday, lie testified that at about 12 o'clock on the night of May 1st he. Genera Dorame. and the woman's two children left the home of Mrs. Doramc's mother, who was ill. and started to return to the woman's home by way of a back street, which runs in the rear of the Wigwam and Palace restaurants in Jerome. As they were walking in the rear of the restaurants, one of thi children fell down and started crying. Wilson ran down the side of a hill, said Silva, grabbed him by the collar with one hand and said, "What is the matter, yon ?" Silva testified that when he replied that nothing was the matter, tne officer struck him over the right eye with the barrel of his revolver and that he knew nothing until he regained consciousness the next day in a hospital. Mrs. Dorame was next called an J her testimony was the same as that given by Silva. After Silva was knocked unconscious, she testified Wilson struck liim on the head again and, when Silva fell, kicked him in the face. The officer then turned on her, she said, and ordered her to go home. Silva's clothing, worn on the night of the alleged assault, was put in evi dence. The suit, which had beci comparatively new, was covered with blood and mud. Dr. A. C. Carlson testified that Sil va was turned over to his care on the morning following the trouble. The injured man was suffering from a large cut over his right eye, a broken Hose, cuts in the cheek and face, a deep gash in his back, a severe wound in the back of his head, and a frac tured skull, said Dr. Carlson. The physician testified that he operated on the fracture the following day and extracted a piece of bone the size of a half dollar. This was also placed in evidence. The mo't sensatio'nal testimony was given by Y. M. Rivera. The wit ness said that he was returning from his brother's Jiomc, near the Little, Daisy mine, about midnight and saw Wilson and Officer J. W. Hudgens standing alongside of Shea's garage, beside the unconscious form of Silva. Without any cause, said Rivera, Wil son drew his revolver and struck at him. The witness said he threw up his hands and knocked the gun from Wilson's hand. The officer, he testi fied, then knocked him down, kicked him in the head and ribs, jumped on him and yelled to Hudgens to hand him his revolver. Hudgens, said Ri vera, picked up the gun but did not give it to Wilson until later. The officer, testified Rivera, then told him that he was under arrest and ordered him to help Hudgens carry Silva to the jail. When they reached the jail, said Rivera, he. too, was locked up. Hudgens next took the stand and testified that between 12 and 1 o'clock Wilson had come to him. said he had had trouble with a man, and that he, Hudgens, had helped Wilson carry Silva out of the alley to the side of Shea's garage. Jack Chadwick, an auto mechanic who was sleeping in the garage, tes tified that he had been aroused by cries near the garage and, going out, had heard founds of a disturbanc; but could sec nothing, as it was dark. Coming to the front of the garage, he said, he saw Hudgens and Wilson as they came around the corner of the building with Silva. Each of the offi cers, had a hold on one of Silva's feet and was dragging him in this man ner. Chadwick gave testimony sim ilar to that of Rivera regarding the lattcr's trouble with the officers. E. J. Rider testified to having seen Wilson run down the hill towards the woman and her two children and of having heard sounds of a scuffle. Aj few minutes later, he said. Tie heard ; Wilson say. "Now get up, yon ' Wilson then ran up the hill, sai l j Rider, and ordered he and several) other men to get away before thev, were given similar treatment. Rider said he left immediately. John Fields and Frank Bailey, who were living in the same bouse as Mrs. Bernado Lujan. the mother of Mrs. Dorame, testified that on the night that Silva visited the house they had heard sounds of trouble between Silva I and Mrs. Dorame. The testimony ctj both men was rather indefinite re garding the nature of the trouble. In rebuttal, the prosecution called on Mrs. Lujan and Francisco Bcga, yho were also in the house, both of whom said that there had been no trouble of any kind between Silva and; the woman during their visit, and i that when they left they were on the most friendliest of terms. Wilson then took the stand in hisi own defense. He said that he had heard cries in the alley and had see.i Silva -chasing the woman and her children. He ran up to Silva and placed his hand on his shoulder, he said, and 'Silva turned, cursed him and attempted to strike him. forcing the officer to his knees. Then, said Wil- son. he drew his gun and struck Silva ; twice, lie denied Having Kicked Miva' important consideration through its (j. L.
