Wednesday, Mar 26, 1884 Worked on my picture. The Newton trial proceeded at the Century. Hearn was examined again but nothing new was elicited. After consultation we agreed unanimously (excepting Judge Speir who would agree to nothing and who acted like a child) to report that the charges against Newton by the Steward were not proven. This to my surprise seemed to be entirely satisfactory to counsel for Newton Mr. Tracy & Mr. Vanderpoel.
