Martin was held the trial of Jack Kinsey, who on the 19th inst. was arrested on a warrant sworn out by D. T. Richards charging assault in the third degree. From the com plaint and the evidence produced it seems that on the 21st of June while the two parties were at Richards' sawmill an argument arose between them which later deleloped into a fistic encounter in which Kinsey bruised Richards to such an extent that he wrs kept from work for nearly thirty days. F. L. Gilliard who ap peared as attorney for the de fense attempted to prove that it was a case of self-defense, while Martin Flasted, attorney for the state convinced the judge to the contrary. After the testimony had all been submitted and the witnesses examined Judge Martin took the case under advisement until after supper when he found the defen dant guilty and imposed upon him a fine of $50 and costs which amounte » to $123.50.
