"Mr Jones said something then" should be: Mr Jones started to say something then.
 
dcfixed. 
infinite_trialdashita is more of a sudden reaction or stituation 
ramuverb+dashita,hajimeta,owatta,tsuzukeru are jlpt level 3 grammar points 
hollandwhat is the difference beetween dashita and hajimatta??Pls help me 
KWhazitThere's a discussion of the difference between verb+出す (dasu) and verb+始める (hajimeru) over in the comments on . The consensus is that verb+出す is more of a sudden or explosive starting (like busrting into tears), while verb+始める is just simply starting.

Note also that this use of 出す is NOT the same as the standalone verb 出す, which means to take something from a more enclosed/private place or situation and put it in a more open/public one. 出す only means "start to do" when it's tacked onto another verb stem... and even then it may still have the above meaning:
取り出す - take (an object) out (of a container)
追い出す - chase (someone) out
