ono Koshl, n Japanese restaurant
keeper. They miulo n very hnrd fight
nnd it looked very much ns if they

vory much at variance, nnd when thoy
were subjected to strenuous cross-examinations
their evidence wns pretty
badly shot to pieces.
When tho prosecution had submit
ter its case Chllllngworth made a mo
tion to dismiss tho defendant on the!
grounds that tho prosecution had not
made out a cast;. This motion was
denied utter u lengthy argument. Tho
defense then mado n motion to dls
charge, submitting its case without
offering any ovldencc.
While tho defense argued that the
evidence of the prosecution had been
tendered valuelss on account of tho
discrepancies which existed between
tho testimony of Us witnesses, Judgo
Andrndo held that all tho witnesses
had agreed on tlo most material
point, namely the furnishing of tho
liquor. At tho same tlmo ho took oc
