Mr. Frees is Not as Worthy
Witnesses Testify.

Special to the St. Louis Republic.
NEW YORK, Dec. 14.-- In accordance with his promise, Henry J. Frees, the wholesale music dealer of Dallas, Tex., who was arrested on Monday for hugging lady shoppers on Twenty-third street, had a large number of friends on hand to-day to testify to his good character, his excellent business qualifications, his good family and his fine social connections. None of them, however, could swear that Frees was innocent of the charge of hugging Mrs. Jane Howard of Brooklyn and her daughter, Monday afternoon. On the contrary, the evidence against the prisoner was very conclusive. Justice Ryan read a letter which he had received from a man who signed himself Edward B. Morgan, in which the writer asserted that he had seen Frees act towards fifteen other women in Twenty-third street in the same manner as alleged by Mrs. Howard.

“To dignify his action by calling it embracing,” wrote Mr. Morgan, “is putting it altogether too mildly.”
H. S. Gordon, a Fifth avenue piano dealer, protested, that Frees must certainly be innocent, that there was nothing in his past conduct to warrant the belief that he could be guilty of such actions, etc. Frees is Mr. Gordon’s Texas agent.

“If,” said Justice Ryan, with impressive earnestness, “this man is the paragon of excellence you would have me to believe, his refined instincts should revolt against the perpetration of such disgraceful conduct. I hold the prisoner in $500 bonds for trial.”

Frees offered several of the witnesses as sureties, but Justice Ryan would not accept them, and in default of $500 bail, he was remanded for trial. Frees is about 5 feet 7 inches tall, with brown eyes, smooth skin and a fine profile.
