I was weak and exhausted, and hardly able to keep up. I could not cat .sufficient to keep up my strength. I suffered greatly from sleeplessness, end got very little rest.

ALBERS TO FIGHT NICARAGUA CASE AMERICAN CLAIMS THE JUDGE TOLD THE JURY THAT IF THEY DID NOT CONVICT THEY WOULD BE LED OUT TO JAIL. New York, February 16.—William S. Al bers. the American citizen who waa im prisoned in Nicaragua last summer and served about six months of a term of three and a half years sentence, arrived in New York today on the steamer Pan ama from Colon and told his story of the arrest, conviction and release. Albers was released after efforts had been made in his behalf by the United States government and was given fifteen days in which to leave the country. "I did not resist arrest,” Albers said to day. “I ran up the American flag on my house and when an attempt was made to break in. I protested to American Minister Mer ry. but so far as I can understand he did not do much. I make no charges, but I want to see the letters he wrote re garding the case. If it had not been for the publicity the press gave the affair, T would not have been tried for two years. The trial w as a farce and the Judge, M. A. Barrios told the jury that if it did not find me guilty they would be led from the jury room to the Jail. “There was no steamer leaving until one after my time leave expired. I wa„s forced to make my escape by going out to this steamer In a small boat. “I am going to Washington to try and secure justice. The case has already cost me $20,000 and T shall fight the Nicara guan government for its recovery.” RECORD OF COURTS Leonard Thayer was acquitted of mur der in the second degree by a jury in the first division of tho criminal court yesterday before Judge Greene. The case had been before the court since Wednes day forenoon and the jury was out but a short time in its deliberations. Thayer’s case was somewhat peculiar. He was charged with killing Mike Sulli van In Pratt City about four years ago, and was indicted by the grand Jury short ly after the affair occurred. He was tried and found guilty of murder in the second degree, the jury fixing the pen alty at imprisonment in the coal mines for twelve years. The case was appealed to the supreme court, and the decision was affirmed. A rehearing before the supreme court was granted, and that high court reversed itself and granted Thayer a new trial In the lower court. In the meantime the pris oner had been sent to the mines. Thayer was represented by Attorneys Shugart & Bell. A feature of the case was the fact that the prisoner is a very old man, nearly 70 years of age, and with hair and moustache almost snow white. He was heartily congratulated after the verdict was rendered, and held a levee in the corridor when he left the courtroom legally cleared of the charge against him. Another case which attracted great at- | tention came up before Judge Senn in j the city court, and the decision was to the effect that Justice of the Peace H. B. Abernathy was not entitled to the office and position of justice of the peace in Precinct 21 of Jefferson county, in asmuch as the inferior court bill was legal and constitutional. The decision was handed down in the forenoon. The cause was entitled the State of Alabama ex rel A. B. Perdue vs. H. B. Abernathy, and was In fact nothing more or less than quo warranto proceedings to determine by what right the defendant was serving as a justice of the peace. When the petition was filed, the defendant filed demurrers and Judge Senn sustained them. Appeal on the ruling was taken to the supreme court, which reversed the action of the trial judge and overruled the demurrers. The defendant, Abernathy, yesterday* j filed his answer in the city court to ! the original petition. The state filed de- \ murrers to the answer the court sus taine the demurrers and the defendant refused to plead furthef. Then the court decided the matter for the petitioner, and declared the defendant ousted from the office of Justice of the peace because of the validity, legality and constitutionality of the act establishing the inferior court of Jefferson county. The following business was transacted yesterday in the second division of the criminal court before Judge Weaver: Julia Ann King, abusive language, fined $5 and costs of proceedings. William Driscoll and W. C. Stiff, petit larceny and receiving stolen property, passed by the state to a later date. John Brown, petit larceny, plea of guilty entered by the prisoner. Judge Smith, petit larceny, passed by the defendant to a later date. Cora Howard, assault and battery with a weapon, forfeiture of bond declared against the bondsmen and capias Issued. Tom Reid, carrying a pistol, fined $50 and costs of proceedings. Tom Starks, assault with a weapon, fined $100 and costs of proceedings. Charles Scott, assault and battery with a weapon, fined $500. Will Taylor, assault and battery with a weapon, lined $500. Anderson Mason, petit larceny, plea of guilty entered by the prisoner. Ike Warner, assault and battery, found guilty and fined $600. The case of W. H. Carney, adminis trator vs. the Sloss-ShefTleld Steel and Iron company Is on trial before Judge Senn In the city court. It Is expected the case will be concluded today. The case of Bragg King vs. S. L. Lump kin, in .which damages were claimed be cause of alleged malicious prosecution, went to the Jury In the city court late yesterday afternoon. The case of S. R. Bentley vs. L. A. Prosch was dismissed by the plaintiff yesterday in the city court. The case of J. C. Crockett vs. the Bir mingham Railway, Light and Power com pany was placed on trial in the city court yesterday. The following new suits were filed lr. the city court yesterday: J. H.
