Thomas Graves deposed to being with defendant nftor their drill at the armory and was present when Robinson arrested defendant. He saw dofendant knocked or pushed down by RoblnBon, who then struck defendant on tho back with hla dub. Robinson and defendant then went toward the jail and witneas went homo. In pvoes examination witness said after leaving Anderson's saloon, at about 13 o'clock, and went to tho armory and donned their uniforms. They went to tho Elk and Crystal, thence over to the Moguel rlar store.. Defendant then left tho store and hla companions chased and caught him. and endeavored to take him home.

After tho ahootlng and before Freeze reached the drug More, wit ness told Klrkman to get somo of the hoya and look for Froze, lln did this because tie thought Freeze had dono wrong and should bo hundd over to tho authorities, and after de fying Robinson, lie felt aure tho po lice would have fome difficulty In effecting his capturo.

Defendant asked to be allowei to gee tne regular soldier who was almost incapable home, then be wo lid ro turn. This privilege was denied him and Robinson, he said, threw him down, struck him on the. h p and ack with his club, and after he (de fendant) broke away from the po liceman, he heard a whirring sound, tno next moment bis hat wna knocked off and he heard something hard Btrlke tho pavement in front of him. it waa shortly prior to this tbat he (defendant) had had aome word with a bald hesdod man in the Elk cafe, but defendant was taken by his lrieiids before they came to blows. After evading the policeman ho se cured tho key of tho armory and picked up a gun, and a few shells, lie did not know just how many shells bo secured, but was of the Im pression that ho got about four ban doliers each containing sixty sheila. Asked b)' his attorney what ho got the gun for, be answered; "After Mr. Robinaon struck me, I was pretty angry, and I got the gun to protect myself until I could get Klrkman and go borne." He denied making any tnrcat on the sidewalk out-sldo of Joiner's printing establishment. Fall ing to find Klrkman ho walked in tne direction of tho Golding drug store, there Intending to store the gun, and when he bad reached tho atrcet car tracks ill front of David son's corner he was intercepted by a party, who approached him without a word. "When about, perhaps, four or five feet from me, he ruahod for word and said, 'Damn jou, I have you now.' i pulled tbo gun off my shoulder, and punched the man twice with It. Ho then Backed up about one pace and I backed about four. 1 then aaid, 'Is that you, Shady Bill?' I did not recognize who It waa until then. Ho bad his hat drawn down over hla eyeB. Tic man replied, 'Ye.f, and 1 am going to get you this time.' I said, 'You beat mc up with a six shooter once, but I ain't going to let you do It now,' He made a further step, and I said, 'Stand still.' Ho nad his right hand behind him, then, but as he threw his baud over his head, 1 shot at him. I then backed away from hlra, but he kept coming up to me, and I went round the cor ner of the Chanslor building. Tho man I had shot followed mo that far, and then went into tho stairway entrance between that and tho next building," He recited hla later move ments until Robinson found him lu tho kitchen of the crystal cafe. Rob inson had come through the back aoor and when defendant saw who it was be covered htm with his gun and as Robinson made a move to ward hla blp pocket defendant said, "I want an understanding," and Koblnso nanswered. "I want to talk to you," to which defendant replied, "You had a chance once tonight, when ycu hit me with that dub." Robinson kept on edging toward dc- lendant when dofendant remarked, "You h i4 v o tallied enough," and ask ed tho ofllcer ti go and he went out of the back door. Asked by 111 a nt torney why ho did not want to be arrested by Robinson defendant re piled "Uocauee I knew that If he ar realed me he would prohablv beat me wor:e ihn ho did before."
