The trial of Wilber s. inn, occupied
the entire afternoon in justice Peeves'
court, and during the trial the well
known phrase of "Standing Koom,"
was visible to all those who attempted
to enter the hall of justice. It is truly
marvelous how a cae ,f this kind will

ual struggle was going on by those pres
ent to claim this piece of inoffensive
furniture, to get a glimpse of the plain
tiff in the case. Mr. Chas Kellison was
the attorney for the defense, and the
manner in which he handled the case
convinced those who look upon the case
ivith an impartial eye that the evidence
presented by the plaintiff was not per
tinent to the charge made. J udge Hess
handled the prosecution. While in our
estitmation Mr. Hill is not guilty of the
serious charge made against him, and
believe tie will be discharged when the
case convs up before the court, yet lie
has built up for himself an unenivable
reputation, not only in Plymouth, but
elsewhere, and it is to be hoped that the
lessons presented in the proscutions he
has gone through during the past
month, will lead him to be more cir
cumspect in the future. A e learn that

occasion to refer to the dog killer and
contends now as it did then that any
one who scatters dog poison promiscu

community. There is no excuse for
poisoning dogs at all.
