WHEELING, Sept. 16.?The Jury in
the case of Edward L. Robinson and c
George Morgan, which was tried In 1
the criminal court yesterday, came in c
yesterday afternoon with a verdict of '
guilty as charged in the Indictment. 1
The Indictment faced by the men
charged them with short changing lj.
B. Kletxtoy, the Market street book
dealer, and the State made a clear
case. Prosecuting Attorney Schuck f
looked after the Interests of the State
and the men were defended by S. O.
Boyce. When the case was called for
trial the ^following Jury was empaneled:
George W.'Guy, Charles Holllday,
Thomas Coi, "W. F. Rumble, J. M. <
Gooch, D. A. Toomey, A. H. Wcrder. J
Joseph Deb old, Jacob Rlchenbrod, J. f
M. Wilhelm, E. W. Dodds and Thomas f
Templelon. The testimony was brief
and the case went to the jury before
noon. After being out about an hour ^
the jury returned -with a verdict of f
guilty as stated above. Attorney
Boyce made a motion for a new trial. (
which will be argued later.
The testimony showed thnt. one of
the men purchased a 25 cent, box of <
pnper proffering a $20 mil. Aiier receiving
the change he explained he
had Intended offering n $10 bill and
securing the $20 handed back a $5 bill
and $4.75 in change, thus swindling
the store out of $10. It was also
shown by the police that the men
have bad records, they having been
arrested here several weeks ago on
the same day they wpre released from
the Allegheny eonnly penitentiary. It
was also shown they had served time
In other prisons.
The small amount secured by the
men mahes the offense a misdemeanor,
which Is punishable by Imprisonment
from one day to two years. i
