A.FAVIT ('F GEORGE* B. ('RoMERt. t
Pecrsonally appears George B. Croiner, ti
wvho being duly sworn, says: That he w as
Ipresent when thre shooting atl'zay occur- e
red bet ween George Johnrstone and John *
B 1. .Jo:ne, in thre otlice of Tiriail Just ice
IIenry H. Blease, on thre ;th~ day of a
M1arch, 1887; that the said .John B. Jones ti
had begun the closing argumnent on amo- C
tioni which had been argued alreadly by M. i
IA. Carlisle, this a iiant and George John
)st one, in the orIderliamed,when lie, Jones
said: "I believe, if thre court please,
counsel for the defence" (George John
stone and thre afliant being counsel for 3
the defense in the case) "admit that this ti
is a court of record." George Johinstone v
then said : "'No, if the Court please, l<
we do not admit that, for the Statutes 5
expressly say that it is not a Coturt of 3
frecord." Jones, showing annoyance,
sa5:id, 'I wvas drsigm remnarks to e
the Court, I wasn't paying any atten- J
tion to anybody else." George John- I
stne cill eking from his ehair. said: 11
mnd I was addres-ing my remarks .to
e Court." Jones, still showing an-I
>yance, sail abruptly : "Will the Court (
ar my argument?" Whereupon the v
.ial Justice said : "Yes, go on Mr. <
mues; doi't interrupt him Mr. John
)ne." Jones then said contemptuous- c
: 'Oh, he cau't confuse mte (or throw t
e off) I don't notice anything that
mes from such a source." George n
hnstone, rising. retorted : "If the in
lting puppy will repeat that-." This -
tiant failed to catch the rest of the (
utence, for as soon as the word "pup
was spoken Jones quickly drew and (
'eled his pistol. As he did so afliant n
rang directly between Johnstone and
nes, who were about six feet apart, 1
ith his back to Johnstone, and eudea- c
red to seize Jones' wrist to prevent I
mn from firing, but Jones fired just as
is afliant caught at his hand. John
one had made no effort to draw a wea
mo when this afliant sprang to his feet,
id it was a physical impossibility for
m to draw a pistol by the time that
mes fired the first shot. George John
o:e's interruption of Mr. Jones' argn
ent was made in what appeared to this
Blant to be a legitimate way, and none
Johnstone's remarks appeared to afti- P
it ofTenive or calculated to give an
>vance until Mr. Jones said that hl i
tli't notice anything that came from I
ch a source. GEORGE B. CitoMEt.
