One of the charges against Barrackman before the trial was assault .with ntent to kill. The police court Judge has no jurisdiction in this charge other han to discharge or bind the defendant over to the grand jury. Inquiry showed that the "Intent to kill" charg.! had been changed to plain assault and battery. , "Intent" charge having been dig. missed by the. prosecutor. Ira Holmes the prosecutor, said he dismissed the 'Intent" charge after talking the matter over with Collins. When disposing of the case Collins said Braden adopted the wrong method In trying to keep Miss Barrackman out ,,, the .fore. He said the matter .hould have been settled between Braden and Hubert Roger., a partner .In the buslnes. whom Mi.s Barrackman colled »o ire- nuently to see.

He «a!d he had been mak ing on effort to hire u horse- and buggy to go home and that *ome stranger he met volunteered to drive him out for a small consideration. The two went around to several of the livery stables but were unable to secure a horse and buggy and Todd said that when .they were on dark street the stranger attacked him and began pounding him In the face. Todd hud a «10 bill and he thought the stranger wanted to rob him. so he made a rush and got to th« restaurant before being further pounded. AFRAID TO bB ALONE. It wa. suggested that he had better re port his case to the police. Todd did no rare about making any stir, he .aid, but he clij- and he w:mted to go there for .In- night, lie mild he was afraid to walk that fur alone because he thought be man who had attacked him would-be aylng for him and h« offered to psy. ; «b- ·rnlly u n y one who would walk with him. The man wa» perfectly sober, but-he was green and unacquainted with ctyy ways «nd was badly scared.
