and declared that the man who commltted

that lt waa stidlclent to call for the ro

Then, nmld tho hush of expectatlon and

Judgo Brown sald ho proposed to glvo

But Judgo Matin, who 'held hlm, thought

down to tho assault ltsolf?'tho crucia.1

"J. nood not speak lo you gontlemen

Thero Ib no such oxpresslon as thls In

The able and oloquont argument by
Judgo Brown shortly thoreaftor camo to

bad passed nnd ho must therefore stop.
In concludlng ho summed up hls caso
ably and eloquoiuly. Ho said:
"1 say upon thls rooord, repreaentlng
tho petltlonera whom we hero ropresont,
that there ls sufliclent ln thls record to

tho truth cf tho atatement mado In that
artlclo that such was tho talk at that
time? That was all that Dr. Crawford
sald. My friend (Major Conrad) undor
tak'ea to sneor at the inslnuatlon."
Major Conrad: That was an experlenco
