"You saw the character of the wit

As to Lynn s testimony, I have
only to say this, and I feel I should

in this case fighting for his liberty,
and there are thrown about him the

The jury In the Lynn case now
have all the evidence Id their pos

remains for them to say from the ev
idence whether he is guilty or not.
Yesterday afternoon the final
prayers and arguments were made
aud an it was 6 o'clock before coun
sel on both sides hail-finished, the
jury had to be discharged until Mon
day or be locked up over night. The
former was more to their notion and
when the adjournment was made
none were more pleased than they.
In his address to the jury Mr.
Richards said:
"Through a labrynth of law we
have ' reached that point wherG we
can lay before you the facts and dis
-euas the aspect of those facts. This
is a case of great importance. John
Lynn is charged with obtaining
money under false pretences from the

and
Mr. Vaniant Both say that 01
Johnson was also them wlitn
money was paid. Ont of Mr. John
son's own mouth we will prove that '
he told an untruth on the witness
stand under oath. Johnson says he
was at Lynn's to ask him for work,
and It was before he went to work for
Henry Stewart. According to the
testimony he began work for Stewart
on October 3. He was at work on
October, 10, 11, 12 and 13. The
story breaks there. If Johnson was
there then Vaneant told an untruth
for he says he was there. If he was
there then John Lynn's story stands
as a fine fabrication for he swore
Johnson was there.
Mr. Ward then reviewed the evi
dence about the repairs to Tweed's
Bridge. The work on the bridge
done by August 6.
"In conclusion, Mr. Ward said but
one question was to be, considered.
John Lynn tried to induce White
man to change his testimony. Mr.
Phillips remained out. He did not
hear the conversation on the car. The
Jury can draw its own conclusion.
Phillips did not want him to hear it,
Lynn is a men of sense. Phillips got
out at the station. This action of
Jonn Lynn strengthens the cause of
the state.
'•Whatever men have iieen drilled
