Happenings among Our Neighbors TURNED LOOSE BY JURY Captoria Frohman, the negress who shot and killed Lula Dickerson at a rooming house, 135 Twenty-sivth street, on February 19, was dis charged by Judge W. H. Reeder, fol lowing a preliminary hearing this morning. After the inquest of yesterday, the coroner’s jury, consisting of B. F. Thomas. A. T. Hestmark and A. G. Harris, declared that Mrs. Frohman shot in self defense and recommend ed that the prisoner be released. County Attorney David Jensen, how ever, filed information charging the woman with murder in the first de gree and the preliminary hearing was held this morning before Judge Reed-, er. Following the order of the court for her discharge, the friends of Mrs. Frohman, as well as her husband, Ed gar Frohman, rushed in to where she was sitting, and there was an abund ance of embracing and kissing. Mr. and Mrs. Frohman left the station arm in arm. The testimony given was practic ally the same as at the inquest yes | terday. Mrs. Frohman did not take the stand. Every witness who was acquainted with the women con cerned stated that Mrs. Dickerson had threatened Mrs. Frohman and no evidence was introduced to show that the shooting was committed for any reason except self defense. Much time was taken over the question of the wounds inflicted upon Mrs. Dickerson. C. J. A. Lindquist, the undertaker, was on the stand for some time and described by means of notes the location of the various wounds to show from what direction the shots were fired. Henry Brown, father of Mrs. Froh man. repeated his story of yesterday to the effect that Lula Dickerson had sat facing the door to Mrs. Frohman's room for two hours before Mrs. Froh man attempted to come into the din ing room, and Mrs. Phyllis Lawrence, the proprietor of the house, retold the story of the threat made by Mrs. Dickerson the night before in a voice loud enough to be heard by Mrs. Frohman in the next room. After all testimony had been heard. Attorney T. D. Johnson, for Mrs. Frohman. moved for a discharge in harmony with the decision of the coroner's pury and he summed up the case to bring out the idea of self de fense. The point contested by the county attorney was in regard to the revol ver in the hands of Mrs. Frohman. He stated that there was no evidence introduced but what showed that Mrs. Frohman had the revolver in her hand when she opened the door. After summing upth e case. Judge Reeder declared that there was no evidence to prove otherwise than that the woman acted in self defense and he ordered that she be discharged —Salt Lake Daily Tai>er. ARE YOU CONSTIPATED?

Lyons, pastor of the Baptist white church, occupied the pulpit for Rev. Brandon Sunday night. The Dr. also brought along his choir. On last Friday night a home talent minstrel was given at the opera house for the benefit of Mt. Olive Baptist church. The Daily Record on Satur day made the following comment: Moody Bruton's Superb Minstrels surprised a large audience at the op era house Friday night with a really commendable production. The show was of a home talent nature, com posed of colored musical artists, and was far above the average of such at tractions. Henry Payne, the ebony hued fun maker and clever singer and dancer, was distinctly the hit of the evening. His team-mate. Moody Bur ton. did some stunts of an excellent character. Moody organized and trained the aggregation and deserves credit for his work. No better choice could have been made for interlocutor than John Trusty, the young educated boy employed as butler for E. D. Ip son. The interlocutor predominates a minstrel performance, and in this role Trusty made good. The jokes were all new. the chorus work fine, and the singing good enough to listen to.
