The defenso offered no testimony.
At the afternoon session Sol;ltor

that the State had closed and the wit

missed and it might be unfair to the
The court allowed the reopening of
t,t case anid the examination was had.
I. W. lloway was recalled and
was asked to testify as to his recollec

the former trial.
The defense objected on t,he ground
that the stenographer's notes were the

The objection was over:a-uled.
Mr. Holloway examined by ir. .ohn
stone: As near as I can remumber he
said lie got some of t,he goods from 1)e
villits lnkor and said he was seared
and st.arted to enuire as to where
.Jaker got the goods, but, did not.
Argument, waa made by Mr. John
stone uad Al a'. Seaso for the State and
by Mr. Cutlbreath and Mr. W. -f. Hunt
for the defenso.
The jury citme into the court with
their verdict about ten o'clock on Wed.
nesday night, after remaining in the
ro:im about four hours, wit.h it verdict
of not, guilty, and Joe W. liser was a
free man once ttore.
Under the facts as proven on the

was hardly possible for any ot,bor ver
I let to ho ret.uned. The judge charged
t,hat, if it, was found the goods claimed
to have been stolen or bought or re

Lo be atol,'n, were of less value than
0dl the verdiet, must be not guilt,y to
larceny and receiving stolen goods, "
this court had no jurisdiction in cases
o,f larceny where the value of the goods
was less than $20. h.ven if it were pro
vn. that, the goods claimed to have
been stolen wore stolen, it appeared
that thi goods were of the value of
only about, $7, and theie could be no
verdict of guilty. Thero was no cvi
etince that..)oc W. Riset' broke in the

eatse Is a ptropter one tunder the law and
fact,s. We do not. say that, a case of
petaty laiceny was p)rov7en or that it, was
priov'en that tbe towels and tobacco and
