DANVILLE, BOYLE COUNTY.
The examining trial of lle.Uty
charged with the murder of Kvnn
S. Warren, was concluded Tuesday and
Wickllffe sent to jail without bond to
nwait the action of the September court.
Nothing else could have been done, in
the opinion of most people, but a few of
Wickliffo's friends think he should have
been acquitted on examination. The
testimony of the defense seems to be
wholly with the view of contradicting
the prosecution, whose witnesses are
made up almost entirely of men of
acter and intelligence, whose statements
would not be questioned at any time.
