Tom Jones, the colored Ypsilantian who shot Deputy Sheriff Peterson, was arraigned before Justice Pend, Saturday, on the charge of attempted murder and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. F. J. Riggs appeared to defend him. He waiv├Ęd examination and, was bound over to the circuit court. His bail was fixed at $2,000, which he could not furnish. He and his brother Irving will come before Justice Pond tomorrow on the charge of burglary from the store of Bowdish & Matteson. It is probable that their counsel will ask for an examination. It has come out that William Jones, the one who shot Deputy Sheriff Smith, and committed suicide last Wednesday night, took his own life the night before his birthday. He was born on the same day of the year that George Washington was born on. How different his life and ending!
