19 November 1890
Dr. Francis Tumblety was given a hearing in the police court yesterday. He produced testimony as to his good character in years past, but there was strong circumstantial evidence of his recent suspicious conduct to show that Detective Horne was fully justified in placing him under arrest. Ju[d]ge Miller was compelled to dismiss the case, but did so with reluctance and commented strongly upon the reputation borne by the notorious doctor. The police will keep Tumblety under surveillance during his stay in Washington.
