At tlie concluslon of the rendlng, Mr. McCue looked up at Clerk Duko, and ln a qulet tone, sald, "Not gullty." Deeply Agitated.

Repeatlng that he deslrcd a speedy trlal by an Impartlal Jury, hc asked that th,o trlal be set for the second day of tho nexVternvof court. All Agreed. Tho Iawyers for the Commonwenlth concurred ln this request, and Hls Honor very promptly ordered a contlnuance un? tll Tuesday, October 18th. '-. "When the questlon arose ns to the place from whlch -tho Jury should be chosen, Judge Morrls stated that hc desircd to hear suggestions from the counsel on both sides. Persqnally, he thought Orange county as deslrable as any from whlch to select a Jury, on account ot Its ac cess-iblllty and freedom from blas on account of thel newspaper accounts. l'he cltles, he thought, would be less likely lo furnlsh a sultnblc venlre because their population were closer readers ot, the daily newspapers than the peopl# more remote from tho cltles.
