Much to the surprise of of every onf,
a telegram was received here Saturday
stating that "Doc" Davenport was ao
quitted of the charge of counterfeiting.
Mr. Garland, his attorney, Davenport
and several witnesses returned on Sun
day. Davenport and his friends were
naturally much pleased at bis release.
Davenport Is well known in this com
munity and bis conviction was not
doubted, as his guilt was apparent to
every one. The Portland papers give
long accounts of the trial which are
substantially as follows: "Doc" Dav
enport, a druggist of Tangont, charged
will) counterfeiting, was awarded bis
liberty in the United States court yes
terday by the outer of Judge Bellinger
who instructed the jure to find n ver
dict or acquittal. This is ill line with
the policy pursued by Judge Bellinger
in Ibis name ease at the time of the ar
raignment id Davenport, who offered
lo plead guilty, and the rourt, after
hearing the statement of the accused,
permitted a withdrawal of the plea of
guilty. The staieuient of Davimpirt
was that he Wss induci-d to procure
plaster of-pari moulds anil make
counterfeit dollars at the request of
Charles Fresh, who was employed by
Secret Service Agent Nicholas R Har
ris t hus to en trap Davenport. The de
fendant said he bad no criminal intent
when he made the spurious coins for
Fresh, and was only showing him
how such workers operoted, and made
but two or three pieces, Fresh express
ing just a curiosity to sec the mode em
ployed. He made no other except
those at the request of Fresh, and was
not engaged in counterfeiting prior to
the visit of Fresh.
Judge Bellinger held that the bfflcrs
of the government ought not to go
about the country Instigating crime.
At the trial yesterday Fresh testified
that he induced Davenport to make
the coins and furnished him with
money to buy plaster-of-paris and
solder, and a dollar piece as a model.
He was to purchase counterfeit coins
from Davenport, and was told by
Special Agent Harris not to aid In any
way the manufacture of the bogus
money. When Fresh had finished
with his evidenc, Judge Bellinger said:
"If this is the kind of testimony
there is against Davenport, I shall not
let the case go to the jury. It shows
that he was solicited to make counter
feits by an agent of tbe government.
Freeh suggested the work to Daven
port. No body is going to be convicted
in a court where Is justice is ad
ministered on such testimony."
While the people of the community
expected and hoped for the conviction
of this old offender, they are pleased
that one of our borne attorneys has re
ceived much praise on the successful
manner in which he conducted the de
fense of his client, whootherwise must
have received a long terra In the peni
tentiary. Judge Bellinger severly
criticized the methods of Detective
Harris and District Attorney Murphy,
but exonerated the parties in Lebanon
who made the arrest of Davenport, as
they acted only as deputy marshals In
the Hue or their duty at such officers;
but be plainly stated that Harris and
Fresh had mado themselves liable to
indictment with Davenport. Wbile
we think that Davenport is a danger
oUBmau to be at large and should
bave beeu convicted, we recognize his
right to make a defense and we con
gratulat Mr. Garland upon his success.
