was an Investigation that should havo been
courted by tho defendants. Thoy eatd that
they wanted to bo tried by adraad andTra

It had reached a petit jury nnd they had a

tho defendants had given
Tlio Wholo Truth or Xol.
How had this indictment been mot ? Uy
earplug, nnd up to tho closing nddress
thcro had boen nothing out attacks upon tho
Indictment by technicalities. They had not
nppenred beforo tho Jury llko lunocont man
and told nil they know.
Ho was In tho caso ami beforo tho Jury to seo
fair play, Iho Uovernmont did not want to
see any innocent man com tctod. It they woro
not guilty, then iho Jury should nay so, but It
guilty, then tho lury should return n verdict
against them. Tho people lookod to tho Jurors
to do their duty and oxpectod that thoy would.

Tho reason was that ho startod tho caso, and
knew nil about It trom beginning to ond, nud

this explanation to his Batlslactloii.
Tlio J ury had boen told, ho said, that ho did
not know tho case. Night by utglit and day oy

Ho had ngrccd Willi Mr. Merrick as to tho

when ho saw him sitting with tho otliers, aid

Tbo Attorney General then treated tho Court

That was a peculiar otronse. It roaulrod

a very different thing to do.

Ho then w cut on to argue that Mr. S. W. Dor
