Family Now Hopeful That the Required Bail Can Be Furnish ed and the Prisoner Regain His Liberty Officers De clare They Will Place Other Charges Against the urt Man, If He Succeeds in Raising the Bond. H j This morning Judge James A. How- til reduced the bond of Joseph Hen ry Martin from $20,000, which was yj fixed by Justice of tho Peace R- T Rheos at the time of tho preliminary hearing, to $12,000, after giving the l matter careful consideration and re-: viewing a number of authorities. Martin had a worried look as he entered the court room with his at torney and the officers, nut his conn- i tenance brightened as he met the fmlle of his wife and his little 3-yoar-l old girl 01i., u ho accompanied the mother. Immediately Mrs. Martin B handed the baby over to the prisoner, aDd she, with her uncio, was Invited to take a seat beside tho prisoner In side the court railing Mrs. Martin was seated next to her husband and between her and the uncle J F. Mar tin, eat Deputy Sheriff George Lcatb am. Judge Howell was thirty minutes late, during which time the prisoner busied himself In confidential convpr- l satlon with his wire, ana in tonanng HI Olive, upon whom he showered a mul ls tlpllcity of kisses, and scanned her dress closely. The baby wore a neat little fur coat, which wiB white as the Christ mas snow outside the court room, her head was covered with a neat little hood and her hair was tied daintily In pink ribbon. Tho little tot was hap py to sen her father and she caress ingly played with him until her moth er took her back Into her lap, while i the prisoner talked with his attor ney This was the first appearance of any of the defendant's three chil dren in court. J Mrs Martin had a cheerful look and did not seem to worry over the I situation. She wa dressed In a brown suit and a dark felt hat. She I wore furs around her neck and car ried a large fur muff and had a heavy gray winter coat. Both she and the baby were most neatly clad and show I ed no signs of financial distress. The I child has a pretty doll face and very I I much resembles tho father The attorncv f"r Martin stated, af ter the decision reducing the bond , had been given, that his client was well pleased with the turn of affairs, and he thought ho could secure the ball required The prisoner said that he hoped to be able to secure the bond as he is anxious to got to work. Immediately after the hearing the prisoner and his attorneys, together with Mrs. Martin and the baby; J. F. .Martin the uncle, and Harry Martin, the cousin, repaired to the sheriffs (ifflce, where he Martins talked over the names of the various friends of the defendant whom they hupod will aid In furnishing a bond .1 F, Mar tin took the names of a number of people suggested by the prisoner and said that he would Bee them, that "Harry has enough friends in the community to aid him In furnishing ball " Harry Martin, who was released from the custody of the officers on a oharge of burglary recently, Rtated that he culd not say positively wheth er a bond could be secured, "but we will try mightv hard to got one and 1 believe we will succeed,'' ho said be fore leaving the sheriff's office. The prisoner was permitted a bath in tho county Jaf after his wife left and he was taken to the west cell, whlch Is a compartment off from tho main corridor. The cell adjoins the padded cell. It Is the cell that was occupied by Maxwell, one of the high way robbers who figured In the re cent holdup at the Exchange saloon and the Blel butcher shop. It is said by District Attorney John C. Davis that If Martin succeeds in getting ball In the cae now against hm, another charge will be preferred and he will be put to the trouble of se curing more bail It is said the next complaint will charge Martin with the robbery of Mrs. McLaren-Boyle-Wallen. H U1 be recalled that Mrs Wallen was rob bed of her Jewelry at hor home In Oc tobi r, 1911, and that afterwards the holdups returned It to her on payment of $100.

They failed to meet her at the appointed place, but accost ed her near tho Ogden river bridge on Washington avenue as she was return lng room No expense was uparcd by the club in making these rooms the most beautiful in the building ana for this reason the furnishings alio decorations were modeled on tne style of the Louis XVI period.

Why Ball Is Reduced. Following is Judge Howell's deci sion fixing the ball at $12,000 "In this case the defendant Is en tilled under our constitution to ball as a matter of right, and It is ex preSBly proided also thut It must not be exceilive In determining the amount 'bat should be fixed as bail in this or in any other criminal usc, the purposo thereof must al ways be borne In mind. The commit ting of prisoners to jail prior to trial and before they have been found guilty Is simply for tho purpose of securing their attendance at the trial It must not be for punishment, fcr, of course, they have not prior to their trial been fouud guilty and are not entitled to be punished. It is not for the purpose of preventing tho commission of othor crimes, or for any purpose other than to Insure their tttendance at the trial. If therefore the presence of the defendant can no Insured In some other way, that In what the law desire, and the amount of ball which should be required In any case Is such sum as will make reasonably certain the attendance of the defendant at tho trial. As bearing upon the question as to what will Insure that result, a mini bor of circumstances may be consld ered, though nane of them are conclu sive. "In the first place, the character of the crime should always be taken Into consideration, it being obvious that the graver crimes would require larger amounts than the lesser crimes "lu the second place, the situation and relations of the defendant should be taken account of. that Is to say, whether ho is a resident or a tran sient, whether he attempted to avoid arrest or otherwise or has at templet to escape or otherwise, whether he is a married man and has a family living iu the community and all such facts and circumstances as throw light upon his situation and relations "In the third place, his financial situation should be considered, al though, of course, this Is by no means conclusive, for fhe reason that if it were, then a man w:thoit anything would be entitled to be released with out giving any ball "In certain cases there aro othor elements which might be Considered, such as the condition of the defend ant's health, which la not Involved In this caso, the delay. If any. which may reasonably be expected to ensue before trial, but. of course, that is uot Involved In this case, for the defend ant may have as speedy a trial as he desires. "A different situation is presented I when, as here, there has been a pre llmlnary examination and a holding to answer, or where there has been an Indictment by a grand jury than prior thereto, for then a different pre sumption prevails than that which wl'i prevail at the trial, the defendant Tot tho purpose of fixing ball is pre sumcd to bo guilty (ex parte Duncan 54 Cal. 7."), whereas at the trial of course the defendant Is at ail times presumed to be Innocent until he shall be proven guilty by evidence beyond h reasonable doubt This presumption, of course, may be rebutted and evl lenee upom i he fixing of ball may be Dtroduced by the defendant to rebut 'hie presumption Tho affidavit filed n this rase, however, does not seem . : !.' nurl ' U' b evident c iis i an bo on ildered, for all that It states Is hat the defendant will at the trial be -lb'e to exonerate himself and he ha! an alibi, but no evidence Is offered to sustain it If It were then the court would be In duty bound to he,! i and In such an event of course, It would also doubtless be proper tor tec ttato to put In any evidence tnai .t may havo. in addition to thai whlcii was introduced before the committing nagistrate, but in the first instance it least the state s not permitted I he court will not consider any add I ionnl evidence that the state may nave, for tho reason of the preeump tlon to which reference has hereto rore been madfl "The court likewise will nol con Blder any evidence tending to BhOW chat the defendant may be charged With or has committed other crimes, lor, of course, if such be the case be must be charged and bail fixed upon 'hem. Inasmuch as the pumose for hlch ball is given looks toward tLo uture, it is impossible to fix with pre cision the exact amount which Should 'e required I have, however, been imazed to discover the small amounij vhlch have hern required by commit ting magistrates. Including mysell hen I was acting as such, in enser, pf as grave a eharacter as this, bul I do not think lhat the committing magistrates are by reason of tuts fact tMtltled to any criticism, for the rev son that ordinarily the Tixing of ball Is to a great extent a formal mat ter, for In the ordinary criminal case the defendnnl is a transient and tho ghlng of any bail at all would be as Impossible a the glv:ng of a higher amount The fact that these small amounts have been fixed, however, is not of much persuasive value In the! consideration of the matter before the court nt this time, for the reason thu. while the amounts fixed hac been small, I have been unable to discover that any defendant In as grave a case as this was over released upon such amounts, and I doubt not If there hud been any prospect of their being so released, an application would havo been made to increase the bail "Nor does the court obtain much aid from the decisions of the courts ol other states, there being no dt i I ill tl of our own supremo court which bears upon the subject. A number of the easo which have boon cited are cases Involving capital punish ment. but It must be remembered that In most of those cases at leas lh ball is not allowed nt all where the proof is evident or the presumption strong, and therefore before admit ting to ball In those cases the court has found that the proof la not evi dent and that the presumption Is no', strong and therefore of course lesser amounts would be required than where the presumption of guilt pre vails. Tho amounts have van t s i greatly In other cases thut they also are not of much persuasive force. Fo Instance. In tho case of United States '6. Lawrence, reported In 4 (.'ranch. C C 618. case No 16.577 federal lu sob. a defendant charged with assauli with Intent lo commit murder upon the president of the United States, Oenerul Jackson, was admitted to bail in the sum of 11,600, whereas In the case of ex parte Ryan. 44 Cal. 665, the supreme court of California ht-iti fhnl in tlw man n( nn aanunll villi, intent to commit Wurder, bail In Kie sum of $15,000 was not per Be ex cessive, though the court said If it were fixing the ball originally it rnlglit not fix It in so large an amount. "It seems to the court finnaly. lhat to fix ball In the sum of 120,000, ay fixed by the committing magistrate in this case, Is to make bail prohiu Itory and to deprive the defendant ot hlB constitutional right, and i' seem.-, to the court, talcing into consideration all the elements which can be cousid ered upon an application of this sort, that ball in the sum of $12,000 is saf flclenl. it being understood thai inls amount Is fixed in pursuance of the statute requiring the court to fix ball and shall be without prejudice to a further application for tho reduction of the ball, upon the presentation lo the court of any facts which would Justify the court in so doing.

His confidence In his ability to stay with Harbertson was shown after his last bout, when he offered to bet that he could defeat the local man in a finish match Another doubt as to Harbertson's ability to come out winner is the fact that Long realized i r seriouBly the main cause of his defeat by Chester which was lack of form and ha6 ben working steadily and hard slnco then to tet hacU Into good condition.
