"CHARGES AGAINST BROTHER-IN-LAW: T. M. COGGINS Prosecuted in Justice Court by B. C. BELL // SAID HE STOLE TICKING FROM H. ROTHSCHILD'S STORE: Mr. Rothschild Said Defendant Had Stolen No Ticking, and Gave Him an Excellent Character. Mr. COGGINS Was Discharged. // A rather unique case was tried yesterday before Justice Tol Y. CRAWFORD. // Mr. T. M. COGGINS, the well known mattress maker, who works for Mr. H. ROTHSCHILD and Mr. T. F. FARLEY, and also does work of this character for the general public, was arraigned on a warrant charging him with simple larceny. // The warrant was sworn out by Mr. B. C. BELL, and charged him with having stolen 50 yards of mattress ticking from Mr. H. ROTHSCHILD. Mr. BELL is not connected in any way with Mr. ROTHSCHILD's store, and the motive of the prosecution seemed to be a mystery, especially as BELL and COGGINS are related, being having married sisters. Mr. ROTHSCHILD swore on the stand that Mr. COGGINS had stolen no ticking from him. He and Mr. FARLEY, and others, gave Mr. COGGINS an excellent character. There was no testimony to warrant the prosecution, outside of Mr. BELL's statement. Mr. COGGINS was represented by Attorney A. A. DOZIER. Mr. BELL had no lawyer but made a lengthy address to the court himself. // Justice CRAWFORD promptly dismissed the case. // Mr. BELL was formerly an operative in the Muscogee mills. He resigned his place several years ago to run against Mr. D. A. ANDREWS for tax collector. Lately he has been selling a patent medicine." [Columbus (GA) Enquirer-Sun newspaper, Thursday, 20 MAR 1902, p. 3. Compiler's note: there is still a fabric store operated in downtown Columbus by a ROTHSCHILD.]
