It seems that during the lat week
there has been something of a misun
derstanding at the court house hetwe'M
Sheriff Edward Kittilsew and the cir
cuit court, and that as a result th?
sheriff was- in a nice way given
pointers on the statutes govern
ing the duties of the sheriff and
his relation with the court. It
seems that Sheriff Kittilsen had giv
en orders to his deputies that no pris
oner was to be released without a
written order from a court, with em
phasis on the word "written." So it
happened that when two prisoners,
Robert Howie and' Howard LaGrange,
who pleaded guilty to petty larceny,
were allowed to give recognizance and
were discharged, the deputy declin;!
to release them. When the court's
oral instructions were repeated, and
the deputy had been informed by one
or two of the officers as to the legal
status of the case, he took die boys
to the sheriff's office, and they werj
Locked Two I l Agnlii.
A day or so later two other hoys
were released on a writ of haliets
corpus, the justice of the peace having
erred in binding them over on a
charge in which he had jurisdiction.
The writ was confessed, and the cott.l
entered an order of release. The
dnmtv sheriff, however, acting under
the instructions of the sheriff, took the
lads back, and before their attorney
was aware of the nature of the pro
ceeding, the boys were again in con
finement in jail. The sheriff was
nromotlv informed of the liability lu
assumed in such an instance, an
wlieii shown the statute relating .0
this procedure, he quickly had the
bovs released, waiving his rule for a
Mu-rilV 1 1 earn So tiling.
The story has it that at this junc
ture, the sheriff was called! befons
Judge Ramsay, and in private was giv
en a few instructions and told a few-
things about his relation to the court.
lie was told that as an officer of tho
court and a part of it, he was expected
to obey the court's orders. The rule
to hold prisoners until a written order
is received, has been repealed, accord
ing to rumor.
