      New Orleans Criminal District Court summary: Pleaded Not Guilty

      "Preparing Combustible Material, Etc.--Joseph A. Favrot, Jules Magne, Leo P. Dobard, Albert Dobard and Leon J. Dobard."
      ==========================

      Newspaper article: The New Orleans (La.) Item, 21 Apr 1903, page 1
      «b»Dobard Brothers are Discharged; Witness' Story not Believed«/b»

      Leo P. Dobard, Leon J. Dobard, Albert Dobard, Jules Magne and James A. Favret, the men who were arrested some time ago on the charge of preparing combustibles for the purpose of setting fire to the house at 731 Dauphine street, were discharged by Judge Aucoin of the Second City Criminal Court, this forenoon.
      The men were tried Friday and Saturday of last week. It was charged that these men, with George Wilkins, had formed a conspiracy to burn the building in order to obtain the insurance on the furniture on the premises. Wilkins, who was dishonorably discharged from the army during the Spanish-American war, was to live in the house with his wife, that being one of the terms upon which he was to enter the conspiracy.
      But Wilkins decided not to be a party to the burning of the house and so informed the district attorney's office, and later went to Mr. Cooke, the insurance adjuster. Mr. Cooke employed him to spy on the Dobards and in that way he kept the adjuster posted as to what was going on. Mr. Cooke evidently did not have much confidence in Wilkins, as he hired another man to watch Wilkins and make reports about the latter's action. The place was to be set on fire Feb. 16, but there was nothing doing. The place was searched, but there was no evidence of any combustibles. Witnesses had testified that they saw a boy carr out two packages which looked like oil cans, but that could not be proved.
      Chandler Luzenberg, who conducted the prosecution, made strenuous endeavors to prove a conspiracy on the parat of the defendants. He produced witnesses who testified as to the methods used by them to obtain a policy of insurance on the furniture in the house at 731 Dauphine street. He showed how the furniture was moved out of the house. Wilkins and his wife were the principal witnesses for the prosecution, and the court did not place much credence in their story. The attorneys for the defendants contented themselves with proving Wilkins' character.
      Witnesses swore that it was very bad, and that they could not believe Wilkins under oath. The defendants showed how Wilkins came near being lynched at Jacksonville, where the Second Louisiana Regiment was in camp during the Spanish-American war. Wilkins and another man had gone into the Louisiana camp with loaded dice, and they did a land office business. The losers threatened to lynch Wilkins, but the officers saved his life by putting him in the guardhouse. Afterwards the money was taken from him and given back to the men. Later, he was dishonorably dicharged from the volunteer service.
      The defense took up considerable time proving the bad character of Wilkins.
      Whether or not the case will be taken to the Criminal District Court by the prosecution could not be stated by Mr. Luzenberg this forenoon. ###

      The New Orleans (La.) States Item, 8 Aug 1903, page 15

      Included in a report on New Orleans Criminal District Court proceedings:
      "Argument on Demurrer: Nearly the entire day was taken up yesterday in the argument on the demurrer filed by Mr. James Wilkinson, attorney for Joseph A. Favret, Jules Magne, Leo P. Dobard, Albert Dobard and Leo J. Dobard, charged with preparing combustible material with intent to set fire to a dwelling-house. District Attorney Luzenberg argued in opposition to the demurrer, and Judge Chretien took the matter under advisement. ###

      The New Orleans (La.) States Item, 28 Aug 1903, page 8

      Included in a summary report of activities in the New Orleans Criminal District Court:

      "The demurrer to the indictment for preparing combustibles filed by Joseph Favret, Jules Magne, Leo P. Dobard, Albert Dobard and Leon J. Dobard, als accused of plotting to set fire to a house down town and defraud the insurance companies, was overruled." ###

      The Demurrer in the Dobard Case Overruled«/b»
      The demurrer filed in the case of Joseph A. Favrot, Jules Magne, Leo P. Dobard, Albert P. Dobard and Leon J. Dobard was yesterday argued and overruled by Judge Chretien in a lengthy written opinion. The defendants set up the contention that the incident did not specify in which particular room in the house, No. 731 Dauphine Street, the combustible materials which they were accused of having prepared with a view to destroying the house by fire, had been placed. Judge Chretien held that it did not make any material difference in which room of the particular house the combustibles had been placed, as the result would have been the same had they been set fire to. Judge Chretien, going further, said: "As to the manner in which these combustible matters, as prepared, were to be ignited, the State is not called upon to disclose, as that should not enter into the domain of preparation, but rather would be in execution of the preparation made.
      "I do not consider that the State is called upon to say whether it intends to prove that these combustible matters were to be set fire to with a torch or a match. The State alleges that these matters, as prepared, were so prepared with the intention of destroying the building by fire. But how this fire was to be set is a question for the Jury, and upon the trial it will have to be determined by evidence whether they were so prepared with that intention or not. The question of intent is not always to be established by any specific act of the defendant, but is to be ascertained by the actions of the accused before, at the time of, and after the preparation, and from all the surrounding circumstances.
      "I consider that the information is full and ample, and that the demurrer herein filed should be resuded and set aside, and it is so ordered, and the defendants plead to the information filed against them" ### [6, 19, 20, 21, 22]
