Having sent six recalcitrant wit nesses to jail and indicted another one on the strength of his breath, th" Faulkner county grand jury set another precedent this morning when it pressed a witness so hard that he fainted in the presence of the court | and was unconscious for several j minutes.

He also admitted, it is stat ed. that he neglected to place the man under arrest for violating the law in giving away intoxicants. Foreman AY. S.

Mr. I Cazort for the jury merely informed the court that the witness had testi fied, they believed, to the extent of his information, and Judge Clark an nounced he would not violate his rule against acquiring personal knowledge of matters pertaining to the grand jury. It is surmised, however, that Hartwick varied from his first evi dence to a marked extent, which can !be inferred from its acceptance by the jury on such a decisive vote, i Today’s work at the grand jury was opened by something resembling a bomb, Judge Clark calling the body before him to answer the “sons of toil” letter submitted by A. M. Led better, former circuit clerk, and pub lished in Friday’s Log Cabin Demo crat.

It expressed his determina tion. so far as his authority and in fluence is concerned, to make the probe of law violations in the county thorough and without discrimination among classes. Shortly after the court’s direction | had been given, Mr. Ledbetter was | summoned as a witness and spent some time before the grand jury. Hartwick was called from the jail by the grand jury.
