Testimony Brought . Oat i Yesterday
the McNair & PearsaU Case Hear
int Resumed To-day.
Yesterday the three negroes, Joe
Hooper, Lewis Jarman and . William
Murphy, charged with implication in
the theft of goods from the warehouse
of Messrs. McNair & PearsaU, were
arraigned for trial in the Mayor's
Court, but the hearing was not com
pleted and will be resumed this morn
ing at 10 o'clock. -
The story of the arrest of the negroes
and the charges made against them
are familiar to the readers of the Star
and would be a needless repetition in
this connection. During the trial the
negroes are represented 'by Messrs.
Bellamy & Bellamy -and 'tlerbert Mc
Clammy, Esq,, and Messrs. McNair &.
PearsaU have employed Frank Mc
Neill, Esq.i and George Peschau Esq ,
to direct the prosecution.
The evidence introduced thus far in
the trial shows that the parties im
plicated have been conducting quite
an extensive; system of steal
ing, and ! the s indications are that
the most guilty of all the
gang is staU at large. The officers
are especially anxious to, apprehend

DAILY RECORD ON THE MOVE.
Editor Manly Folds His Teats And
Silently Steals Away to a More.
Yesterday's STau told of the demon
strationmade by quite a large number
of negroes Wednesday night in their
zeal to protect the office and editor of
the Daily Record, the negro daily,
from the attacks of assailants who did
not exist save in the healed brain and
misguided imagination of the crowd.
And how the office was garrisoned by
Editor Manly and quite a number of
his friends during the whole night.
By early dawn yesterday drays were
drawn up in j front o' the office
and office furniture and compos
ing room fittings were loaded on.
and before noon the whole Record
plant had been moved from the corner
of Water and I Princess streets to a
frame building on Seventh street be
tween Ann and Nun. They had in
tended to move into Ruth Hall but a
movement to make the insurance rate
considerably higher on account of the
Record's occupancy of the building
caused the trustees to reconsider their
contract to rent to the Record people.
No paper was issued yesferday on ac
count of moving.
There was talk around town yester
day about the paer'a suspending, but
Editor Manly fold u Stak reorter
that the Rrconl would 'con
tinue to do business in the same
old way if not at the same old sland."
The building tlie Record occupied, on
Princess street is owned by Mr. M. J.
Ileyer, who notified them to move
several days ago. The viciuity in
which the plant has been moved was
very quiet last night. Manly ami his
friends were of course on guard and
the police thereabouts were more than
usually alert. The Record hopes to
resume publication to day.
