court's ruling 6n- the illegal service of
the capiases provided the court would
enter upon the hearing of evidence to
determine the question of bail.
The court stated that he would hear
the evidence unless some good reason
not heretofore brought out is shown why
the question should not be entered upon.
Mr. Stokes then stated that the de
fense would offer a domurer, and, if
that were overruled, they would simply
join issue on the return of the Sheriff
and let the case take its course.
Previous to the reading of the de
murer Mr. Stokes made some facetious
remarks anent the possible sending to
jail of Spl. Hill and Judge Swiggart for
contempt. "
In answer to a brief reply that such
would not likely happen, Mr. Stokes re
plied: We may show you before we
get through that you are not before
Judge Jones."
He was promptly called down by
Judge Matthews for any implied criti
cism of Judse Jones. Mr. Stokes dis
claimed any intention of criticising, say
ing that he merely meant to contrast
the two.
At this point Mr. Stokes stated that
thev would not offer the demurer, but
would join issue on the return, making
a general replication to the return.
The replication read: "The defend
ant denies the facts set out in this return
and joins issue on the same. "
The question of bail then came up.
Judge Matthews held that the burden of
the proof is on the petitioners, and
Sheriff Borum was put on the stand to
show how he held the prisoners.
In answer to the questions of Attor
ney Stokes, Mr. Borum stated that he
