The wdtnea# then said she had come for the babv As she *ald this, she reached over the rate and picked the baby up off the step* She placed the little one down In the street ar and Jimmie picked her up in his arm* "If you don't pu that child down/' the wtinews swore Slell said to Jimmie. "I'll shoo, you." ‘ Shoot, then." th# lad responded. "I am not afraid of you.*’ As the boy made this response Mali Bred the first shot The baby was attll In the hoy's arms when this shot was fired. It went wide of Its mark, and ihe wltnewe snatched the rfilld from Ihe arms of her son. Then Mell flrr-d the second shot and Jimmie fed, bleeding, to the ground. The witness said that she paid no fur ther attention to Mell. who went awty Immediately, bur devoted her time to car ing for her wounded hoy. Some men came up at about this time, and with their assistance the hoy was placed in a cab and driven to the home of the wit ness Slie wild that he lived, ehc thought, about an hour after he was shot. In response to quest ions of the solicitor general, the witness said Jlmmtg had started that day to attend the H*n y Street S nool and when his sister rime to her house, the boy was showing her his school book*. The witness was rigidly cross-examined hy Mr folding After long urging she at last reluctantly admitted that before her marriage she was known as Jennie Ituzbce. Hhe confes-ed that on the last trial she had said that *h was never Known by this name, and explained this lapse from the truth by saying "she dll not see what It had to do with the case " "Hi t you ever run an assignation house In Savannah?" ashed Mr Cokllng.

"No. ‘ sal.l the witness, "and If I did It has nothing to do w Hi this case " "Wasn't your daughter an Inmate of both of these houses?" Mr. folding queried. "She wan not." the witness answered, "because I never ran them ', Another Important Witness. Mr. Osborne next introduced the evl denoe of Mrs. Lula Smok* Mr.- Hmok* was formerly Lula Taylor aid was llv- I ing with it>* defendant and hts wife, as i a sort of companion to the latter, at the time of the homicide. Bhe was the most ln|>ortant wline-s at the last trial, and she proved lo be Jtutt a* valuable lo th* atate at the on* now In progress. Bh* Is one of the few witnesses w bosn the de fense mini* no effort to discredit or Im pend). and she told *er story with a simplicity, clearness and fulrne-s that rned* a most favogable Impression on the Jury. Bhe said thot at ebotjt 3 o'clock on th* afternoon of h# homicide. Mell came to hla horn* Th* little child. Anna, was playing in th* hock yard and Mell hud picked her up In hi* arm* The child began to cry and Mr*. Mell asked her husband to pill her down. M>-ll refused this request two or three time-, and then Ann)* Mell lefi the house, saying tho- -he would get someone who would make him pill Ihe - hlld down In a few- minutes Jimml* came up He told Mell that be had come for his sis ters child and Mell. with an oath, said that neither he nor hi# sister could get ♦ha child. Mrs. Black and Mrs. Melt reached th* scene at this Junc4ur*. An me Mell invited her mother and brother In. or l Men, with another and viler oath, said he would not hove cither of them in the house. Mrs Black rearhed over the closed gate an 1 pickM up the child, whom he gave to Jimmie The Incidents of the homicide thit was then committed were toid by the witness Just as they had been by Mrs. It i k M.l had fired the first shot when the kd had the baby in his arms and tn* b* 1 I after Mrs Black had Hitleha) th*- child iwav It wat the second shot tht had taken effect. A wording to the wltnc-s it* only provoia’ion given by young Huxbee was the statement lhat Me.l could shoot, "he was not afraid. ' Mr. Folding's cros* examination had no rffe.-t upon the testimony of the witness, that came through the ordeal strength ened. rih*'r than weakened. She said that she wu- aitllrig at the window when ti * quarrel begun and saw Its every inci dent. With great |oeitivnesa she swll Buxliee ha*i no revolver or other weajon atel thit if ha had had or.e, she would have seen It Mr. folding a*k*l her If sha bad ever refused to fell him what she knew about tle ensr Than. In response to this quee thui. the w itne ss loid an interesting story. She sai l that one day she and Annie Meil w-re answering advertisements for • mployment. The witness knew nothing iiei it th** streets of the city, and was pl k>t*d 4y the *lef*f)*hnt's wife to Mr. Foi l ing * rt vikn e. on Jones street.

Jimmie had a pls rol. and 1 told you I had not. Then I got out of the house.” At the conclusion of the evidence of Mrs Stoke* the state rested It* case, con suming about two hours and a half lr. presenting its contentions to th© Jury. h Idi-urr for the iSefenae. The f.rwr witness for the defendant was F°dce H rge<f>t \v. H. Fleming. The wltne** said he knew the witness Fits* Black, and had known the dead boy, James Buxbee. In life He said that the worn in h -ft kept disreputable houses tn both Augusta and Savannah, and that the boy was tough, bad and very stub born. Here began a string of youthful wit nesses Willie Hugh"*, a Betheala boy. was place-i on the stand to show whit was young Bit bee's charter (or peace ableness or violence. He didn't know Rudolph Ltannenfelater. who had alei been with Jimmie at Bsthesda, also lack ed Information on this point. George Radford was a more Intelligent ind i more profitable witness for ths de fendant. The lad sold he had met young Ruxhee on the day he was shot, both of Hh-m having attended the opening ses sion of the Henry Street Bchool. They started on their way horns together and Hughe*, the witness said, had exhibited a pistol for his admiration. The witness sabl that young Buxbee had fixed the weapon, which appeared to be broken. In his sight. in response to n question by a juryman, tho witness said ib* weapon was not loaded. The solicitor general or,** examined the boy at considerable length, but he stuck to hla story. The only weakness the so licitor could discover was that there tra< •t dlscreponcy bee ween the statements of an affidavit made hy the lad and his evi dence at the trial. In tho affidavit h* said that young Bus bee w-* playing wtth ihe pistol: In giving hla evidence he said this whs no< the fwet. Then came another string of witnesses, voung women who said that they knew that K.ixa Hl*ck when whe was called Jennie Hughe* and that she then kept a disreputable hou*e In Bavsnnah. With great fmr.kness they all declared that th. y had personal knowledge of thht fact. The Prisoner's Statement. "Gentlemen," said the defendant, when he was placed on the stand to make a s'atemetu In his own behalf. "I will tell vou th* truth In this rase, and that's what you have not heard." Mell s-vld that two or three days before the shooting he hod seen Jimmie Ruxhee with a pistol In his hand and tobl him that If he did no* atop carrying the weapon he would get himself In trouble On the morning of Oct 11. !*. he had a lit:!# quarrel with Ids wife before he started to work When lie .-ame ha** In the afsertwon h* found the child. Anita, had quarreled with her playmates and they had gone away. ll* plcki-l up th* child and hi* wife told him to put her down. ll* had refused, and hla wife had gone away with the threat that she would get somebody who would make him put the child down. 11l a few minuirs Jimmie Ruxh** cam* up. The boy asked for the child ar.-l th* defendant said lie told Jlmml* that he could not have her. hut that when his sister came, she could. •' 'lt's not your chi d.' Jimmie said. •' ‘Well, certainly, it la not yours.’ I answered. -That's all right; I*ll get even with you, you nasty puppy.' he said, and wua turning away, when hi* mother came up. Bhe Is the cause of all the trouble; If It had not been for her, I would not have been compelled to shook Jtmmle." The defendant retailed a scrap or two of Miilr.gwgate that he said had passed between hln.seif and Elisa Black ll* -aid that Jlmml* had resented something he ha-1 said to hi* mother and picked up a rock "t i.std him to put the ro-k down," said the defendant, "and he said that he did not hove to use th'- rock. With that he pul ed hie pistol, and as he did *o I drew mv own and fired. I was sorry to have to shoot, bul I had to tn order to save my life." The defendant then told of hi# flight from the scene of the homicide and hi# surrender lo Patrolman Meklrim. when the latt' r nano- for him at hi# mother's home. "If 1 fell that I was guilty of any crime." he said. "1 would have run * tel not surrendered." Again Mell repeated the statement that hla mother-in-law was responsible for all his trouble*. He had met hi* wife In the disreputable house thai Jennie Buxbee kept, th* girl had expressed an appar emly sincere w sh to lead a better life an-1 he had taken her away and married her. It wws her mother that was con stantly trying to atlr up strife between them "I have told you how the shooting was don* snd why." said Mell, o the Jury, In conclusion. "I don’t know what became of the pistol that Jlmml# had. bus I kr.ow he had one and Mr*. Black and Mi** Tay lor would aay *o. too. If they would tell the truth. Thwt * the whole truth, gen tlemen. so help me God!" The State In Hehutal. lullia Black was re ailed to rebut the statement of the prisoner in to the piMOi She said tnat Jimmie d.d not tave a weapon, and that there was non* nvwhere about the spot after he had been shot.
