tary manslaughter by a jury he-e, was

Homer Holt to two years close confine?

room was jammed with people. The
delendant was ordered to stand before
the bar, and Judge Holt in passim* sen?
tence briefly reviewed the casi ami eir
cumstances of the killing and sounded
an eloquent word of warning to tha pris?
oner. In concluding, he said:
"You have been indicted for the. killing
of Frank Thompson in this county. You
did not deny killiug Frank Thompson.
In their mercy the jury decided to give
you a punishment of the lowest order.
They decided that you had no right to the
plea of self-defanse. As to what tho pun
ishment shall be the statute is silent. 1
am compelled to look to other sources,
and I find it is in the discretion of the
court. The court may put you to jail
for live years and still be within tho law.
Tin only bar is the statutory one that
cruel and unusual punishment, shall not
bo inflictef\ The courT, after going over
all the authoritie?, has arrived at the
conclusion that you be confined in the
county jail for two years."
