JUSTICE TOMLIN'S DECISION.
Following is the text of the decision
Of Justice Tomlin in these cases:
In ail of these cases the evidence Is
nearly identical. That evidence consists
of papers, books, lists of numbers, hol
, low quills or tubes, and other parapher?
nalia, all of which has been proven by
the testimony of James Fitchett, intro?
duced as an expert In the games of lot?
tery and "policy," as the mode and
means whereby these games are play?
ed: and It Is also proven that the game
called policy Is one of the well-known
species of lottery.
This witness also testified that the
books in evidence are "only used In a
lottery game," and he explains in de?
tail the nature und purpose of each ar?
ticle produced and how the game is
played fri.-m beginning to end.
The paraphernalia In question were
gotten from the possession of the accus?
ed at the time of th^ir arrest, and the
witness, James A. Fltzpatrlck, testified
that on the dates charged he bought
tickets, in till respects resembling those
in evidence, from the respective de?
fendants, and that upon such pur?
chase similar entries were made by the
accused as the prior witness had stated
were usual and necessary in the game
of lottery.
When the tickets or slips of paper
with numbers on them were purchased
by Fitzpatrlck nothing was said, no
conversation passed between him and
the accused who sold them to him fur?
ther than the simple question as to how
much he wished to play or put upon
the tickets, with his reply of "10 cents"
or '".'0 cents," and his handing out the
money and the defendants handing
back the tickets.. He went in, he says,
to play the game of lottery; and from
all the evidence before the court it is
abundantly proven that the defendants
knew that that was his purpose, and
they sold him tickets Intended to mean
lottery tickets.
It was not directly proven that a
drawing from a lottery wheel over took
place, although It was proven that a
book in which the record or register
of such tickets is made after a drawing,
as testified to by Fitchett, was exam?
ined by Fltzpatrlck In the possession of
the defendants the day after each of his
purchases, and said books were seized
when tho accused were taken into cus?
tody.
So. then, there is undisputed evidence
that there were sold by the defendants
I to Fltzpatrlck (who sought them for the
purpose of playing lottery), tickets
which were proven to be In all respects
Identical with lottery tickets, that lie
paid money for them, that a minute of
these tickets was written down by the
accused in the way all lottery tickets
nro noted, and that afterwards, to us
I certain the fate of the venture, he found
in the possession of the accused, and
there inspected, books or sheets, which,
in their turn, are also proven by Fit
I cbett to be used only in the game of lot?
tery.
Upon this evidence it lias been stren?
uously argued for the accused that the
corpus delietl Is Still unproved; that the
slips of paper are not yet Identified as
lottery tickets; that there Is no evidence
of the existence of a lottery wheel, or
drawing, either In this city or else?
where; that there Is no evidence what?
ever to Bhow that tho numbers upon
Which Fltzintrick hnd put his money
had ever been placed by tho accused in
any sort of wheel or oilier device, which,
according to the testimony of Fitchett,
the Commonwealth's witness Is neces?
sary for the consummation of the game;
that whatever may have been Fltzpat
rlck'fi purpose and heller when he paid
for the slips of paper, and the defen?
dants took his money, there Is nothing
legally-to establish what the defendants'
purpose was, and to ascertain It to be
selling lottery tick.:If; Indeed, that on
their part it is equally consonant with
reason to Infer that the whole transac?
tion was a pretended lotterv, in which
after taking Fltzpatrlck's money, iho
defendants did nothing more, never put
any tickets in a win?ol. never held any
sort of drawing, and after a BUlllclcnt
lapse of time for a drawing to be hud
may have simply rounded out the prior

deceit by filling up pretended sheet's. In-,
tended to reptosont results ot' drawings,
but in reality entered by them as soon
us Pltapatrlck'n back wns turned; In
short. Hint thoy have obtained money
from him under the false oretenae or
token that a lot levy was being held,
when none in fact was ever Intended;
and that, if guilty ot cheating or swind?
ling; they cannot be held upon a charge
of selling lottery tickets. This reason,
though ingenious, is not. in my view of
the matter, sound.
The foregoing evidence seems to me
conc'usive of the guilt of the accused.
The true inquiry in criminal coses is I
whether the Commonwealth 1ms made
out the crime beyond a reasonable
doubt, not beyond a post-dilo doubt.
The tribunal charged with passing
upon the iesue is not to go afield, so
to speak, and search ror hypothesis to
explain away guilt: "for (he most ex?
travagant and unreasonable hypothe?
sis may b*e Imagined to account for any
facts on false grounds. Tho true rule
Is that a defendant is not to be con?
victed by circumstantial evidence, if
ail facts proven can be reasonably ac?
counted for without inferring the de?
fendants guilt." Comth. v. Dana. 2
Mete. In the absence of evidence to
refute the evidence of the prosecution
here, how can the conduct ot the flo
! fendants be reasonably explained othcr
I wise than by the- belief thai they were
selling lottery tickets? The fact that
they did not testify in their own be?
half cannot be the source of any pre?
sumption against them. But yet it be?
came their duty not to leave them,
selves where the evidence Of the prose?
cution has placed them. That evidence
war; Tilled with danger for them, and
left uneontradlctcd is conclusive of
their guiit.
In Dana's case, above, It is said:
"If from the whole evidence on the
part of the Commonwealth, the Jury
are led to believe that the defendant
did sell and deal In lottery tickets, and
I had them in hie possession for that
purpose, as charged in the Indictment,
they would be authorized to find him
guilty, unices he had succeeded on his
part, as it had become his duty, to
explain these facts and circumstances
consistently with his innocence of that
unlawful intention. To this charge, it"
rightly understood, there la no legal ex?
ception. It lias been objected, that by
the charge, the burden of proof was
thrown on the defendant to prove his
Innocence. But we think title le not
the moaning of the charge, for the Jury
?were instructed that they were not au?
thorized to find the defendant guilty,
unless the evidence was such as to lead
them to believe that he was guilty.
The remark that it was tno duty of
the defendant to explain these facts
and circumstances proved against him,
consistently with his Innocence, meant
no more than that he ought so to do.
But still If he failed lliey were not to!
find a. verdict against him, unless on
the whole evidence they believed him
guilty. If they doubted, they -wore to
ncqult him. So the case was left to
the Jury on the right, footing, viz.: that
the burden of proof was not shifted,
but still remained on the Common?
wealth to prove the guilt of the de?
fendant; and if a reasonable dodbt re?
mained, defendant waa to be ac?
quitted."
But apart from the reasoning on this
feature of the case, my construction of
our statute, is that. It Is the Intention ot
the legislature to forbid the sale of lot?
tery tickets whether any lottery exists,
or Is drawn, or not; IE a party sells
papers, devices, &c, purporting to en?
title one to a nrize In a lo-lterr, the
criminal act It? complete.
Otherwise, occasions might easily
arise where the law-breaker might
avail himself of his own wrong, Iiis
pretended lottery might never" occur.
He may have reaped a rich harvest
in the sale of his tickets, and then go
unwhlpped of Justice by proving that
by having no drawing he never kept
faith with his victims.

Tlie third day or the trial of Wilbur
A. Coko for shooting Councilman James
A. Ridgewell was productive of much
evidence, and a largo number of legal
wrangles over the admission of certain
testimony. During the trial the defense
has noted exceptions lo twenty or
more rulings of Judge Martin, and an
appeal may be noted if* the verdict
should be against Mr. Coke.
Judge Hanckcl returned from Balti?
more yesterday, and sat on the bench
With Judge Martin, who is presiding In
the Corporation Court in this case.
The defense rested its case yesterday
?afternoon, and court adjourned until
this morning at 10:'.t0 o'clock. The evi?
dence in rebuttal on both sides will be
heard to-day; Mrs. Coke, wife of the
defendant, said Miss Llllle May Coke,
his 15-year-old daughter, will be placed
on the stand for the prosecution.
the Testimony yesterday.
Tito defense introduced William
Brown, a negro Jail prisoner, yesterday
when the case was resumed. Brown tes?
tified that while he was working for Mr.
and Mrs. Oc-kr, lie carried a'letter from
tho latter to Mr. Ridgewell, and brought
an answer hack. Ho denied that Mr.
Coke had given him a suit of clothes to
testify. He snld a -man came to Mar?
shall White's bar, corner Queen and
Smith streets, and treated him. They
talked about the Coke-Rldgewell ease,
and the man said lo him that if lie
knew anything about the case he bad
better leave town, as Mr. Ridgewell
had paid Mr. Thon; Sl.??n to convict Mr.
Coke. The man gave him 5 cents to
ptty his way on the car to Mr. Thorn's
office, and there he met Lawyers Gro
ner, Williams and Thorn.
Brown said he couldn't identify tho
man who bad accosted him in White's
bar. He was a tall, slim, white man.
with heavy mustache. He was told by
the man that If he testified he would be
punished, like Mr. Coke,
CROSS-EXAMINED.
Mr. Thorn questioned Brown as to
what lie said in .his ofllce. He denied
saying that he never carried notes from
Mr. Ridgewell to Mrs. Coke. Mr. Thorn
asked him if he didn't know be was tell?
ing a lie. There was objection to this
form of questioning, which Judge
Martin sustained.
OTHER WITNESSES.
Mattie Pearson, colored, who had
worked ?for Mr. Coke, testified that he
treated Mrs. Coko all right and was
a good husband.
Samuel Stencil, colored, who said' he
was employed at E. O. Lambert's bar,
was placed on the stand. He testified
that he was employed at A. S. Lam?
bert's place at Sewell's Point in ISOti,
and that he had waited on Mr. Ridge?
well and Mrs. Coke In one of the pri?
vate rooms at that place. He had taken
them soft drinks.
Mr. Thorn handled Beacon and Sten?
cil on the stand In a manner that
caused them to partially lose their
identity and with it knowledge of
events they claimed to be posted on.
W. L. Williams, a'lawyer, testllled
as to what the negro Brown said about
ti.r. i-mo in Mr. Thorn's ofllce. Brown on
that occasion said that he then had on
a coat that Mr. Coke had given him,
nnd had the offer of another it he
would testify.
Mrs. Mary Marsh was next called.
She said she knew Mr. Ridgewell, but
didn't know whether she knew Mrs.
Coke or not. Mr. Bldgewell had not
been to her house, No. 03 Cove street,
so far as she remembered. An effort or
the defense to have Mrs. Coke brought
into the courtroom to allow Mrs. Marsh
to see her and state If she had been
to her house, led to a long argument by
counsel. Tbo court ruled against the de?
fense.
Chief of Police Kisser was introduced
by the defense to prove the character
of Mrs. Marsh's house. This evidence
was not admitted.
NEW COMMISSIONERS.
Judge llanckel, In the Corporation
Court, yesterday appointed Messrs. Da?
vid P. Watt, W- C. Cobb, John .1.

Pannill commissioners to appraise the

Iinmblen Brothers, of New York, will
assume the management of the Mon
ticcllo Hotel in a few duys, probably on
November 1st. They have been In Nor?
folk tor several days, and left yester?
day far New York after completing- ar?
rangements for the transfer to them of
Die lease of the hotel held by Mr. Syl?
van us Stokes. J
They are old hotel men, having been
brought up in lite hotel business, and
are eons of Mr. Jc?eph II. Hamblrn, one
of New York's oldest hotel men. I-Iain
blen Brothers now have a hotel at As
bury Bark, one at Jersey City, the
Washington House, and. until recently,

It is understood tha.t their lease of the
house at Jersey City expires during the
latter part of thie msnth, and that the
efforts of the three Haniblen brothers
and their father will be concentrated
on the Monticello.
Mr. Stokes left yesterday for Balti?

Baltimore, In whjch Mr. Stoke* is laTsp
ly interested, will, it is said, expire on

to dispose of his interest In' that lease.
Mr. and Mrs. Stokes will, it l;< under
