CARRYING A PISTOL Looks Like Victimizing A Charge of As sault Willi Intent to Kill Will be Made. D, U. Walters was charged before the Re corder this morning on two charges, for carry ing a pistol and discharging a pistol. Officer WilUns said he heard some firing In the direc tion of Washington square, lie went up there and found the prisoner, who confessed to having a pistol, and arrested him. Walters stated he was in the White Elephant and had $lCo on his person, drunk. On coming out somebody rushed him Into a hack, against his will. There were two other men in the hack. They stopped in front of Sadie Smith's house, when the driver got down. He then jumped out of the hack and told them to drive on It was sgainst his will he ever got Into the hack. They would not drive on, so he fired at them. One of the witnesses said he was in the hack, when Walters got out. Walters drew his pis tol and fired four shots, telling them he would count three, and If they didn't drive ofi by that time he would kill Ihcm all. He commenced counting, and at the word three fired on them. His Honor imposed a fine of $40 for carrying a pistol and dismissed the case of discharging fire arms. The Sheriff then took the prisoner, as a charge ol assault with intent to kill will be made against him. There are two sides to this case, and a thorough examination thereof Is demanded and will be earnestly sought for.
