The Laboratory shooting case.
--The examination of M. Doyle
, foreman of the tin department of the C. S. Laboratory
, on the charge of shooting at James McManus
, one of the journeymen employed therein, on Thursday last, was again resumed before the Mayor
on Saturday morning last.
It will be recollected that while the workmen employed at the Laboratory were eating their dinners in the shops connected with the Laboratory, Doyle
walked in the tin shop and in a very abrupt manner ordered the men to leave.
failing to obey the order as promptly as he might have done some angry words ensued between himself and D., when he (D.) immediately went into his office and obtained a pistol, with which he fired upon McM. Additional
witnesses were examined on Saturday, whose evidence substantiated the facts brought forth during Friday's investigation, whereupon the Mayor
, in consideration of his indisposition to interfere harshly with the Confederate
officers, declined inflicting any other punishment upon Doyle
than binding him over in the sum of $500 to keep the peace and be of good behavior for twelve months.
