LAID OVER UNTIL MONDAY
JURY IN M'PHERSON'S CASE WILL
THEN BE CHARGED,
The Kvldrnee AH lu ami the Argument«
Made—Mr. PCmmou« Slake« ;« Scathing
Denunciation of the Detective« Who
Testified Against McPherson.
When the Superior Court convened
yesterday afternoon the caso of William
McPherrou,who is charged with attempt
ing to fire the property of George W,
Bus I and Sons Company, was continued.
Fmaunt-l Gooding, who was on the wit
ness stand before the recess, continued bis
evidence. Mr. Emmon» tried to prove by
this witness that the defendant was in
some respects a man of unsound mind, but
without much success. Charles G Ouyer,
the stenographer, was examined as to the
testimony given by Detective Joues at
the preliminary hearing in the Municipal
Comt,but as the witness remembered but
little of the testimony aud would not be
allowed to read from the notes the testi
mony did not amount to much.
Henry Scott was examined aud
that on one occasicn he was in McPher
son's company. They left the yard in com
pany and when they returned he found
a Sre. It would have been impossible
for McPherson to have lighted that fire.
Robert Brown testified that he
blacksmith aud examined Mr. McPher
son's shop. Me also went to the window
where Mr Jones was concealed, but could
obtain a very imperfect view of either
shop or shed. James P. llatlidge testi
fie.d to an interview which ho had with
Detective Jncos after tbe arrest of Mc
Pherson. The detective t-Md him. he al
leged, a different story from that which
he told on the witness stand As Mr
Uatidge did not know mans of the exact
words used by Mr. Jones, Mr. Davis did
not prosecute a long cross txamination
John Stodda-d, assistant foreman in tbe
paper department of the Pusey and Jones
Company testified to the inflammability
of cotton steeped in oil and said that
where it was used there was constant
danger of spontaneous combustion,
William H. Lea testified that he had
at one time been employed by the rail
way company. He saw a number of
fires at the yard of George W. Bush and
Sons Company during that time, mauy of
which he believed were caused by sparks
from the engine
William li Brinckley was examined as
to the character of the defendant for
peace and good order, which he said was
good. He had known the defendant »11
his life.
Samuel Moore knew the defendant
from infancy and he was a man of good
character
At this point the crowded condition of
the coart room caused the jnry to
plain of the heat of the temperature.
Judge Comegys said that the court room
was intended for the use of those having
business there and not for idle and
curions spectators.
Benjamin F. Sheppard testified to the
good character of the defendant.
James M. Smith, William Haley, Officer
Sherer and Rev. Edwin Long, pastor of
Greenhill Presbyterian Church, of which
McPherson is a member, gave the de
fendant a good charsctar.
Spencer Greenwood, colored, who
pleaded not guilty to the larceny of a
pair of "slippers," yesterday, withdrew
his plea aud entered one of guilty. W
F. Smalley desired to examine witnesses
as to Greenwood's character, in order
that he might not receive the corporal
punishment, but tbe court would net
admit it. Subsequently, however. Judge
Ball was allowed to give tbe prisoner a
good trial. In consequence the corpora!
punishment was remitted and the pris
oaer sentenced to one month's imprison

The jury in the McPherson cnee was
tben discharged until 10 o clock this
morning.
Cour: convened this morning tt 9 15
udock and proceeded at once to bear tbe
cate ot William McPheison, charged
w i ,b attempted arson.
Clarence Dillon was recalled by the
Mate to contradict a portion of the'testi
mony given by Emanuel Gooding, who
said that on a particular day on which a
£re bad be0D lighted in the yard, he and
McPherson had been together all the time
E0 tbat it would have been impossible for
McPherson to have lighted the fi*e. Mr.
pUlon swore that on that day he had been

meats and Gooding was not there during
the morning. This was on November 25
Under cross examination by Mr. Emmons
he admitted that he saw no fire on that
dav. hut only a slim column of smoke,
This ended the testimony and Judge
Comegys asked the jury whether they
wanted to be chargea and decide the case
to day or let it go over until Monday.
They unanimously preferred to bold it
over until Monday.
Mr. Emmons then addressed the jury
for the defendant. He said that the case
had been Involved in mystery and the
testimony instead of lifting this veil of
mystery had only made it the deeper. He
argued that the state had not proved its
case, and called attention to the good
character the dsfendant had borne.
spoke about the absence of a motive and
the confidential relations which had ex
isted between McPherson and his eta
ployers. There war ne positive evidence
to connect this man directly with the
crime. Mr. Jones did uot see him, nor
could he have seen him, and he tells a
different story now from that which ho
told Mr. Ratledge after the occurence
The evidence of Mr. Jones was that of a
paid li eling, and it was not the first time
that an innocent man fell a victim to the
criminal zeal and hellish smartness of a
hireling detective.
He characterized the yonng detective,
Clarence Dillon, as too fresh, and cin
trasted his testimony with that given by
Emanuel Gooding. Ha said there never
was a detective from the lime of Jndas

pieces of silver, to that of Agent Jones,
