William J. Rhodes was placed on trial
Jr. the Hustings Court yesterday, to
answer the charge of having shotVißd:

gressed rapidly, and when;; at '6:so ' o'clock", -j
t ourt adjourned, "ihe direct testimony i
for tha prosecution and for the defence'!
was all in, and to-day the witnesses in ';
rebuttal will be examined, and the case i
The trial is of a rather sensational
characieP. and attracted an : immense
crowd, which thronged the court-room.
It will bt- remembered that Rhodes and
Karnett were boih employed : at the
Hasker-Marcu'se factory, on Church Hill,
and that on January 2Hth last Rhodes
s-hot Barnett. charging him with having
wrecked his home. Baniett died at the
Virginia Hospital 'on February Ist.
Rhodes testified in his own •uelwH
yepterdaj', making a line impression tin
the jury and everybody in the court
room, and his wife gave a detailed state
ment of the wrongs which it is alleged
J:.irneU perpetrated against her. Tne
licence has made out a very strong
case of justifiable homicide, and it is
thought likely that the verdict will be
When court convened. at 10 o'clock the
room was crov.ded with spectators, arid
it was with some little difficulty, that^the
officers of the court could move about.
The defence struck the names of \R. S.
Crump, J. H. Beveridgu, George ; i C.
Powers, and E. P. Hudgins from the
panel, leaving the jury composed or J. . C.
Puckett, R. E. Knowles, J. C: Harinon,
J. D. 1-ottier, E. R. Palmore, George Bar
gamin, Julius ICraker.T. J. Puryear, Ro
bert Wendenburg. i YC. B. Jennings, SoT.
l^ange, and R. A. Cavedo.
The jurj- was. sworn.- and without any
preliminary statement on the part of
counsel the examination of witnesses was
Th« first witness was Coroner W. ,H. ■
Taylor, who testified that on February Ist
he had been called to the Virginia Hospi
tal to view the;" remains" of M.". Frank
Barnett. He found that Barnett had been,
shot just below the right eye; that the
ball had passed through the right cheek-^
bone, and -lodged in the skull, back of th«:
right ear. bruising an artery in passing.
Dr. Taylor was followed by Dr. W. H-
J'a-rker. the attending physician, who told
of the injuries, and of how he had dress
ed tha wound. He described the death
pcene, and told of a hemorrhage which
had immediately preceded Barnett' s. end.
Mr. Milton E. Marcuse followed on the
stand, and proved a most important wit
ness for the Commonwealth; He asserted
that he met the accused just prior to the
homicide, and had been told by him that
ho wanted revenge against Barnett, and
that had he had his pistol with him at tile
factory that morning he would then have
lulled him. Witness endeavored to-dis
suade the accused from any such purpose,
telling him it could do him no good, : but
lie was positive and spoke of avenging his
wrongs. "Witness told Rhodes to do no
thing, but to see him later, and he could
bhow him reasons- why he should with
hold action. The accused, witness testi
fied, told him his -wife had made a full
confession to him, and in it had impli
cated Barnett.
Mr- Smith' and Mr. Wise put witness
ihroush a rigid cross-examination, en
deavoring to prove ! that thu accused, at
'hft time of the tragedy, was in an almost
irresponsible condition. The Common
wealth laid considerable stress on the
words of the accused "I would get my
rtvense," quoted by the witness, and the
defence endeavored to show that the
words were used without any meaning.
Mr. Marion Barnett. brother of the de
" r.^ed. w«s next called, and merely tes
'ififd that at tho time of the killing the
■Vciased lived at Ko. 2212 Pleasant street.
Mrs. Ella Stubbs was the next witness.
She resided at No. 72S Twenty-third street
"1 the time- of the tragedy. She knew.
Barnett personally, and Rhodes by. sigfit;
At about 11:20 o'clock on the morning of
"In: tmsr-dy she :-aw Rhodes standing in
front of her house, arid in the position- he
was standing he could readily have seen'
BaVnett's home, a half r square .distanr. He
was looking in that direction. Under
cross-examination! by Mr. Smith, witness
i*.'Mifled that Rhodes, -*hile standing, as
i-he thought. Watching Barnett's . house,'
was as near to: hi.s mother's home as
ha was to Barnett's.

ff.oing witness^ corroborated, in detail' all

of the s-hooting, and met Rhodes, who
said: M "There ■ nin't any .use in going
rurther.. lath the manlthat did: the shoot
ing." Being asked why he had done it,
the. accused said -it was because ;Barnett
was endeavoring to make an: improper

• : -Sergeant' John T. Hall said he was at

northwest; corner, of. Twenty-second- and
Clay streets, where he presumed :the
shooting occurred; '. "-
The next witness. was .Clarence Ma
hone, a. 13-year-old youth: He; testified
that he witnessed the- shooting, and said
it - occurred v on ther northwest corner ..-of
Twenty-second -and Clay "streets," across
the. street from where Chamberlayne : had
j located it. Rhodes had the pistol: in
! Barnett's face when V the i shooting, pc
1 curred, arid the. two shots; were fired
as .'-rapidly. 'as he could pull the trigger.
|~ Ed. Mosby, a small youth, who was
: wlth;Mahone at the" time of the shooting,
followed .him on ' the stand. : He cor
roborated ■■--"■ Mahone's testiriiony. adding
that h© saw Barnett fall, and picked him
up and assisted; hlmJri reaching Sergeant
Hall's house. Barnett appeared to witness
Just prior to. the shooting as, being de
sirous of running off. but the, shots were
fired too soon for him to '"move. :
-„ Miss- Pearl Barnett, .;- a sister of the
decedent, was next placed: on the stand.
She testified to having ;lived at 2212 Plea
sant street/ and that on the' morning . of
the tragedy; her-, brother- was at home
about 10:30, having just returned from a
trip. He went out, and returned between
11:30 and : l2 o'clock,' remaining a -few min
utes-only. When she concluded a dinner
recess was taken. '- : ' '. . '
-The Afternoon Session.
.When court reconvened after dinner
J Mr. Zimmer was reciilled. He testified '■
that when he arrested Rhodes he found
a half pint of v/hiskey in his pocket. It
had not been opened, and witness did
not detect any smell of whiskey on the
prisoner's breath. . ■
The prosecution, at this juncture,
rested its case, and Mrs.- Rhodes, the !
wife of the accused, his mother, and his !
sister entered the court-room. The mother !
and daughter took seats beside the pris
oner, , and ;th'e wife, about "whom; the
.shooting, is alleged to have occurred, , took :
the stand. She was in a highly-nervous
condition, but gave her testimony in a
clear voice. Her maiden name, she tes
tified, was Loving, and prior to her wed
ding, on; April 11, 1599, she resided . on
Twenty-third street. She was married*
in Ashland avenue; had known the ac
cused two years before marrying hiiri.
She worked at Hasker & Slarcuse's fac
tory prior to her ■ marriage, .and: had
known Barnett: for four years. She saw;
him on the day .immediately; succeeding j
her marriage.; when he passed her home,
and beckoned to "her to l come out on the
porch. >■: He .'did the same thing on - the'
1 next day, 1 and on both; occasions they
only talked about five -minutes.
■- -Witness's 'face"- grew- -"crimson*"'Us-- she'
related the story of her relations with
Barnett. She left the home of her hus
band's mother three days after her. mar
riage, .and went to live: in 'a house on'
M< street, with a Mrs. Taylor. About one,
month thereafter Barnett called on her,
and inquired where her husband was.
Being told that he was at work. Barnett:!
asked if he could not go up. and look at |
her room. She declined to. admit him,
but he forced his way up stairs, and I
took advantage of her. She threatened I
to tell .her husband of this, but aboutU
a month thereafter Barnett returned., j
This time she forced him to Jeave the j
house by threats that she would call Mrs.
Trarlor. |
On January llth last witness and her j
husband had '_■ moved to Twen ty-ninth j
street, and Miss Grace Meorii called, on !
• her and asked permission ■]■ for Mr. A
Barnett to come in. saying that if he
was denied entrance he would not give
her (Miss . Meoni). any more good posi
tions at the factory. Barnett entered,
notwithstanding, and noticing her : (witf
ness's) condition, began to laugh at her!
She 'threatened to call her brother-in
law, Mr. Carrington' -to her assistance,
but Barnett paid no attention to .the
threats, and endeavored to take liberties
with her. He finally desisted, and left.
When the accused came home that eve
ning witnesH 1 told him that Barnett^ and.
Miss Meoni had been there.. She did not
tell her hupband any more than that,
and he went, out to seek. Barnett; He.
oameback, and said he saw Barnett, and
he was' going to leave town. . .
• On the morning of January 29th. wit
ness said her' husband came ;home : very
much excited, and told her Barnett was
back. in town. He questioned her closely,
and she -made a , clean breast of. the"
whole affair from beginning to end. •
This, confession was. made .about 11"
o'clock.' and Rhodes grew, terribly ex
cited. * Witness, cried, and. pleaded with
him -not to go out, but- hei insisted on ;
"doing so. arid- the next she heard. of him
the shooting: had taken place, i ■■:'_■
Under cross-examination by ;Mr. \Rieh%
ardson. witness was asked if she -did
not; send for Grace Meorii on the llth" of;
January, when Barnett came. Mrs.
Rhodes denied positively' that' .she.
had done so. She maintained her com
posure under and. did
not contradict herself in any particular.

May 11.— Jim Jeffries is still the :heavy-i
weight champion*^ pugilist of 'the 'world ; ;
He defeated Jim Corbett in the twenty
third round of their fight, with a. decisive
knockout.? The : finishing blow.- came: as ■ a i
sudden- and startling surprise. Corbett
had been making a. "wonderful battle.:. His
defence •. was ;: absolutely perfect, ;; and
while he was' lacking in strength, he; had :
more than held his ; own. and. stood an
excellent chance of winning the -light had
it gone the limit. He.had not : bp«n ; badly,',
punished, and had ; manage J to mark his
man severely. . ; _' . .
The, winning punch was a' short.ieft
jolt; to the jaw. • Corbett dropped- like a
weight, and was clear out. Jeff ries ■ show
ed -ability to take a " puncning, go any
distance, and punch hard/ He \vu.s clear
ly outboxed, and at times: made to-look
like a novice. : The crowd, which num
bered fully 8,000.. was with . CcrlVett. and
his defeat fell upon, a silent • company. -
There .were cheers ; for him .whin "he re- ':■
vived and left the ring, _ and ,he was s.ene-_
rally shown more consideration than 7. as :
the victor. Oorbett is; still a. -factor, in
the. pugilistic game. ' iHe : .]ias'- regained"
much of his old . form.: . " '. »
:. The battle was clean, and it is doubtful
if there was a single infraction, of the
rules. '-. The crowd was most orderly.'
iFirst Round— Jeff forced Jim, with Cor-"
bett. breaking ground > and sprinting. He;
forced Corbett to the ropes, landing right;
to the body. Corbett sent hard- left '<toj

hooked left to nose.; He kept up "his

Corbett's footwork was- a puzzle to the
champioii. but Jeffries-: kept crowding : in:
arid landed left to, the body, which made'
Corbett more cautious. . Corbett's foot-;
work was wonderful; V Jeffries led left to"
: head.-;, but", Corbett. crossed with a right,
which, sent the champion's; head back.
Corbett made -good work of his legs, and'
danced away •; from: his ; opponent until"
the end of the. round.
Round. Third— Corbett again the quicker
on his feet.: He hooked' light left to Jef
fries's head. Jeffries was cool, and: de
liberate in . his movements. He guarded
his face cautiously^ , and forced Corbett
to make four circles of. the ring. Corbett
feinted with ; his left ■- but • did.n ot land,'
and Jeffries sent right and left to- body!
Corbett tried twice with left > for body,
but missed arid thenl they exchange'dfiigh'S

but Jeffries blocked, and sent hard left"
to body, driving Corbett to tropes. " 'Cor- ;
bett ■ endeavored tp" feint Jeffries out' of
position, but got a right. in the body for
his pains. " With a quick movement Cor
bett sprang into his. own corner, in which
Jeffries caught; him; .sending : a stiff left
to the ribs, just v as the gong rang. : : :
Fourth ; Round— The y'rushed to a clinch
after which Jeffries hooked left to -head' •
Cqrbett tried a right -to the. body but fell"
short, but Jeffries sent" his. right over to

Worried. At dose "quarters Jeffries put

anxious, nevertheless; Jeffries got to hini
