continued in the Court of General Ses

reasonable doubt, that the evidence ad

took the property feloniously.
The ex-attorney-geueral said that the
state had put in evidence which stated
positively that a man gave the watch to

contended that the felonious taking had
not been proved.
"He wa* a Double Felon."
At 10.30 o'clock Attorney-General

The charge to the jury was delivered
by Judge Cullen. It was ably delivered,
and, taken altogether, favorable to the

original theft must be proven, and
that they must be fully convinced
that the taking was felonious. He fur

What It Cost tho People.
This has been a very costly case to the
taxpayers of New Castle county. There
fifty-four witnesses on
nearly all of whom come
Elkton, Md., and vicinity.
As the state lost its case all
witnesses have to be paid. The average
per diem and mileage of the witnesses is
$4, although some ot the witnesses will
get as high as $15. Striking
an average of $4 the witness tees
alone amount to $216. Twelve jurors
for two days increases this expense to
$264. to say nothing of the bailiffs, grand
jurors, serving subpoenas and other in
cidental expenses which will make tbe
costs almost $300.

The state called several witnesses who
testified that the "rooster had yallar

the rooster did not belong to Duncan,
