      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, wa 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. ###

      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 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" ###

      New Orleans (La.) Item (newspaper), 18 Aug 1905, page 1
      «b»ALLEGED ABDUCTOR HELD IN BAIL
      Leonard Dobard Remanded to Criminal Court
      Preliminary Trial Growing Out of a Mock Marriage--Tried by Judge Aucoin.
      «/b»
      The case of Leon Dobard, charged with abducting Miss Marie Lena of 1704 Chartres street took up the entire morning session of the Second City Criminal Court. After a lengthy trial, the fearture of which was the story of a mock marriage, after which it was stated that Dobard went to live with his supposed wife at Dauphine and Orleans streets, Judge Aucoin ordered Dobard remanded to the Criminal District Court under a bond of $500.
      The witnesses for the defense tried to prove that Miss Lena had often visited Dobard at his place of business, St. Ann and Chartres streets, at night time and would remain until after the midnight hour before it was reported that they were engaged and these witnesses testified to that effect. However, Judge Aucoin held that as the marriage that took place in Gretna, to which place Dobard took Miss Dona (sic) was a mock one, he had no right to take the young lady to a house in Dauphine street, and no more right had he to take her into his store.
      Miss Lena took the stand first, and said that Dobard had been courting her for two years; that they had been engaged to be married. In June of 1903, witness declared, Dobard took her to a confectionary in Canal street, and there prevailed upon her to take a drink. She called for a milk punch. The young lady said that immediately after she drank, she felt a numbness and a dazed feeling come over her, and she concluded that something that is not usually put into milk punches was placed in her glass. She declared that Dobard then took her to Gretna, where they were met by an old man, who perfomed the marriage ceremony and declared them man and wife. Dobard, she said, made her sign a paper. This paper, she was told, was the marriage certificate.
      She said that Dobard then took her to Bourbon and Orleans streets, and there lived with her for a while until they went to live with her mother. Attorney Joseph Generelly, in order to prove that Dobard considered her his wife, and also to prove that Miss Lena was under the impression all the while up to a few months before she discovered otherwise, that she was the lawfully married wife of Dobard, placed Charles Butler on the stand.
      Mr. Butler is a notary and attorney. His testimony showed that Dobard secured $400 mortgage money on one of the houses belonging to Mrs. Lena, his supposed wife's mother. Mr. Butler stated that he went to the homeof Mrs. Lena at the time that Dobard and Miss Lena were living with her mother, and was introduced to Miss Lena by Dobard as his wife, and to Mrs. Lena as his mother-in-law. He gave Dobard the $400 on the property after finding that the titles were clear. The house is situated in Chartres, near St. Ferdinand or Port.
      Mr. Walsh, collector for a furniture man, declared that Miss Lena was introduced to him by Dobard as his wife. Private Watchman Pinaud, and another witness for the defense, declared that they saw Miss Lena come out of Dobard's place of business on several occasions after the midnight hour.
      Miss Lena declared she learned that they were not legally married when Dobard announced his engagement to another girl. She asked him about it, and he told her he was not her husband. She then asked him to marry her, but he refused.
      «i»
      (Editor's note: a record of a marriage between these two was found in the Orleans Parish Records on line.
      A subsequent inspection of a copy of the marriage certificate indicates that a license was issued and a marriage took place on 21 Aug 1905 [and was registered on 30 Aug 1905] between Leon Dobard, a native of Plaquemines parish and son of Prosper Dobard and Leontine Cossé, and Maria Lena, a native of New Orleans and daughter of Batiste Lena and Maria Penatti. The Hon. H. Renshaw, judge of the New Orleans 1st Civil Court conducted the ceremony, which was witnessed by E. J. Thiery, A. J. Smith, and J. E. Generelly.
      The article above makes no mention of their daughter, Esther, born 6 Jun 1905.)«/i» [22, 23, 24, 25, 26]
