BITUKUY OC l-OUB -,),
LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. Jcsncit'a Court la the Justice's Court lust Wednesday, B. L. Davis was tried on a charge cf assault and battery committed on Wm. Sunderland at the Raymond Works, the day preceding. The case was submitted to a full jury which wag composed of C. B. Ball, James Neibitt, N. P. Djnley, Tho. Mo Mahon, Jos. Cook, Janus Mocks, H. W. Newton, Al. Ainu-right, Janus McFsd den, Frank Godbe, J, S. Reder and A, S. Thomp'Oo. A plain ca-e was marl out such as would ordinarily relt in a conviction, but because the complaining witness didn't bear outward physical evirence of a st rinus battery, the jury after an hours deliberation failed to agree, and were discharged by the Court for that reason, and the defendant was alio immeiliitely discharged from cus tolyon thu ground that the failure of the jury to agree acquitted him. It seems satisfactory to ihe community to allow the law applicable to mid.mean ors, and small matters generally to re min upon the Statute b .oks entirely un. recognized, but b.w long can this be done in any community without entail, lug serious consequence. It is upon the law that the best portion of every com munity rtlies to secure proteciiou tn per son and to property. It should be so here, but the duty of the average jury man 1 1 divest himself of personal yry dice and to pas impart ally on tb.' ones- tioa submitted aco.irdmg to law and' evidence seems a very difficult matter; ludeed and the rejult is eeu in arrowing disregard for the law, ami those whose business it is to ei force it, and in a steady increase of petty crimes. As an instance, the number of petty larcencies occurring every ek among us is start ling wht-n compared with our pouulation. but the los-es are Lorn in tiltuce, the remedy at law btiog usually regarded as worse than the disease. Under such cir cumstances the charge that the local of. fleers are derelict in the performance of their duties should be less frequently heard. Their efforts meet with no prao tical encouragement, and the evils under which the community labors must con tinue until the people themselves are willing to act when called upoa and put a stop to them. Kaymosd Shaft. At the Raymond shaft, the work of pumping out the winuoa the 12oh level will begin in a few days. The engine stationed there is nearly in place. It has been thorough ly overhauled at the shops during ihe past two weeks. Yesterday morning the small pump in the vitu was run for an hour, and the water lowered seven feet. It was an experiment. Steady pumpiug will not begin for tome dajs yet. The Yub Company is hoisting ore from the 12th level cf their mine and shipping it to the furnace. The ore as it is hoisted from the mine is comparatively free from waste and will average 100 t t. in silver per ton.
