Another bold check flasher, believed
be have com* from Richmond, visited
Petersburg- yesterday afternoon after
banking hours, and left with some
money to which he was not* honestly
entltled. He went to the hardware
store of Jefferson a Joynes, Inc.. on
Sycamore Street, and representing him?
self a* "G. A. Lutz." engaged in over?
hauling and repainting the home of
?VI. H. Moore" on the turnpike in Cacs
terileld County, near Petersburg, pur?
chased materials amounting to 8*5,
which he requested to have packed,
that be might call for and take them
sat on the next electric oar. He ten?
dered a check for $100, signed by J. H.
Moore, drawn on the First National
Bank of Richmond, received $85 In
change, bowed himself out. and has
not smce been seen. Of course, he did
not return for the goods he had' pur?
chased. The firm telegraphed to Rich?
mond to ascertain If "J. H. Moore's"
check was good, and received a reply
Chat Moore kept no account and was
unknown there. Jeffere >n & Joyne*
have the check and ths good a bat are
ant $8$.
The same swindler, a well-dressed
young man, before going to Jefferson |
g joynes's. tried t? purchase a bill of
goods with the check at the store of
W. w. H?ne* a Ob., but was turned
down there. The polios are trying to
get track of the cheek-flasher, but so
far without success.
It was only a few days ago that
another rasher, with forged ard fraud
elect checks on local banks, swindled
three grocery merchants out of con?
siderable change. This man Is believed
to be under arrest in Danville for simi?
lar practices there.

Defense Sets Forth Reason , for j
Asking New Trial for
j Instructions of Trial Court Ob?
jected To and Evidence
Thirty-eight bills of exceptions are
filed with the petition for an appeal
In the case of Claude Swanaon Alien,
now In the hands of Judge John A.
Buchanan, of the Supreme Court of
Appeals. These exceptions aet forth
the reasons of the defense In asking
for a new trial for the prisoner, who
is under sentenoe of death in the eleo
iric chair on November 22 for the mur?
der of Commonwealth s Attorney w H-j
liam M. Foster In the Carroll court?
house tragedy of March it of this
one. regarded as the most important!
would make the plea that Claude Al?
len waa twice put In jeopardy for the j
same offense. Ue was flrat tried for j
killing Judge Thornton L Masaie. and |
given fifteen years la the penitentiary.
It Is argued that the jury In this case J
found the prisoner not guilty of con?
spiracy, since had the theory that
Claude conspired been believed, no ver?
dict would have been possible save one
or murder In the first degree, with
death as punishment. So, when Claude
waa tried for klUing Mr. Foater. the
claim is, he was put in Jeopardy the
second ?Urne for conspiracy, since It j
was not shown that he shot at Foa?
Tried separately.
Another exception is concerned with
the action of the trial court In refusing
the motion of the defense that the'
Commonwealth be required to consoil- i
data all five of the indictments against ;
Claude Allen and try him on all at.
the same time. The effeot of the
court'a declaion was that the prisoner
could be tried over and over again.i
Another excepts to the acUon of the
court In admitting to the Jury men
Who had expressed opinions regarding j
the guilt or innocence of the accused.1
but who said they could divest their
minds of Impressions and give the ao- |
oused a fair trial.
ExcepUon Is taken to the Judgment j
of the trial court In Instructing the ;
jury that if Floyd Align ref used to i
ober the court, the officers had a right!
to shoot him. and he had no right ot
self-defense, and Claude Allen had no
right to assist him. The defenss also
contends that the court should have
granted Instead of refused certain in?
structions aaked for by it, to the effeot
that If Dexter Goad# apprehended
trouble, he should have sworn out a
peace warrant and that it waa not
the proper course for him to come into
the court room armed with two pis
Dries Statssasata.
Objection Is made to the evidence
of H. C. Gllmcr in repeating Judge
Hassle's dying statements regarding
his having done his duty, and his last
message to hla loved onea at home.
It is claimed this Inflamed the minds
of the jurymen.
Legally, the delicate point comes la
the exceptions which protest against
the admission of evidence of threats
said to have been made by Floyd Al?
len against the court some months
before the shooting, when Claude Al?
len was In the State, the court having
held that these threat* were proper
In showing the motives of Floyd Al?
len. The defense says that Claude
should have been tried upon hla own
motives. Judge Staples, who presided
at the trial, has already discussed his
ruling in this respect in a law Jour- I
naL j
Points are made regarding the ad?
mission of other evidence, and the ex?
clusion of testimony offered by the
defense. Lastly, it is said, there is
certain after-discovered evidence,
proving that men who testified about a
conversation with Dexter Goad were.
