Tlio case against Alfred Douse is

the jury empaneled to try Douse
on the charge of manslaughter am

of Japanese of throwing gasoline
over a workman by the namo of
amagata and then deliberately
sotting fire to his clothing am'
thereby causing his death.
The testimony of some of the
witnesses was evidently no more
believed by the jury than it was
by thcSpcople hero and the verdict
will serve as a lesson to those who
go to court with an ax to grind.
rho case was very ably prosecut
ed by attorneys Milverton, Hum
phrcys, and J. M. Vivas while the
defendant was represented by W
A. kinnoy .and James L. Coke.

acquittal on the first ballot, and

Few pcoplo give enough thought to tho earning

not think of how much it will buy, but
how Much it iaill earn.

formed the jury that the kicking
and cufiirig as described were
scparato and apart from tho pro
position covered in the indictment
and could not bo used for a verdict
Tho following aro tho important
instructions of tho court, as asked
by the defense, under which the
jurors who voted guilty was said
to have been argued over:
Defendant cannot bo found
guilty of any offense or crime be-
causo you believo him guilty under
tho evidence of negligence (gross or
slight) in lighting gasoline in a tin
near the person of decedent (if one
so find) for tho indictment does
not cover an involuntary unlawful
nonncidc caused by negligenco and
the question of negligenco in light
ing said gasoline as outlined in
this instruction even if it took
place, of which you aro tho sole
judges, will therefore not bo con
sidercd by you.
"If you believo from tho evidence
that the defendant in the first in
stance had exceeded his authoritv
and had committed an assault and
battery on the deceased, who hat
thereafter started away and, after
proceeding Borne distance was called
back, not for tho purposo of renew
ing the assault, but, when the de
fendant was cool and deliberate, in
order that he might explain to the
deceased Unit tho article he was
carrying in his pail was gasoline,
in other words, if you aro satisfiet
from tho evidence that all anger on
the part of tho defendant against
the deceased had ended and that
ho simply desired to give to tho de
ceased'ah intelligible explanation.
then you aro charged that thero
was no legal connection between
any blow or kick that may havo
boon previously administered and
the death of the deceased and that.
under the indictment in this case,
you can not find the defendant
guilty of assault and battery, if
tiicro was one.

SINGER SEWING MACHINES
" Cannot be obtained through merchandise dealers. They are delivered
directly from maker to user only through the Company's own em

machines ns there is in making watches. A cheap watch will indicate
time with fair accuracy for a short time. Fairly good stitching can be
done on some of the old patterns of cheap sewing aiachines when they
are new, but they always work hard, arc noisy and soon wear out
