cording to Mr. Goodman, the governor
refused to look at the papers, but. told
him Instead that if he did not resign
right away that he would "chop bis
head off." Mr. Goodman thereupon
took up bis papers and returned home.
Sunday morning the dispatches above
appeared and Mr. Goodinnn was sus
pended at about the same time.
At tho invitation of The Advertiser
to lay his case bcforo the people Mr.
Goodman camo to this ofllce yester
day. With him ho brought his records
and a list of the fines he had paid in
to the County Treasurer this year.
The list showed that he had paid in
over $800. The list was certltled to
by Treasurer Young. According tu
his version of the affair under dis
cussion, Mr. Goodman stated emphat
ically that he was entirely innocent
of the charge against him and that he
would have the matter gone thorough
ly into. He also stated that Mr. W. C.
Hipp had told him recently that he
was entirely satisfied with his state
ment of the way the affair came about.
Mr. Hipp is the employer of the
two negroes Involved and the man who
signed the affidavit sent to Gov. Blouse
According to Mr. Goodman the lines
were first Imposed upon the negroes
at $20 each. One of the negroes,
Johnnie Jones, who was fined for car
rying a pair of knocks, later showed
to Mr. Goodman's satisfaction that he
had merely found the pair of knueku
and was carrying them home. Mr.
Goodman states that he then reduced
the fire from $20 to $10 and returned
tho overcharge to the negro himself
Instead of to Mr. Hipp who had fur
nished tho original $20. In the case
of ?oe Brown, Mr. Goodman states
that he at first lined the negro $20
and that later when the negro said
that he only had $15 he reduced the
line to that much and the payment
was made. This was done, accord
ing to Mr. Goodman, with the full
knowledge of Policeman Madden who
stated at the time that the pistol
which had been taken from the negro
would balance off the account. This
pistol, according to Judge Goodman,
Is the same one that resulted In Po
liceman Madden's trial. How Mr. Hipp
became Involved In the affair was by
paying the original fine of Johnnie
Jones. He paid the $20 fine, but when
Magistrate Goodman ? returned part of
It he returned it to the negro Instead
of to Mr. Hipp. Tho negroes, accord
ing to Mr. Goodman, have admitted
the reduction In fines.
Policeman Madden claims that Mag
istrate Goodman "packed" the jury In
the first trial in which he was con
victed. Mr. Goodman denies this and
stated yesterday that he took especial
pains to empanel a fair and impar
tial jury and that he Instructed his
deputy not to summon three men
whom he knew had already expressed
an opinion against the rural police
man. Ho also stated that when the
trial came off the state objected to
six of the jurors and that Policeman
Madden objected1 to five.
Mr. Madden when told that Mr.
Goodman had said that he could prove
that he was innocent of the charge
against him stated that he hoped that
