Dec. 16 —After an all-night session the jury in the case of the state against Orville R. Daniels for the killing A Dr. J. W. Mitchell December 11,1906, returned as its verdict at 8:5l> this morning that Daniel was guilty of voluntary manslaughter and his sentence was fixed at two years in the state penitentary. The defense then moved for a new trial, which was overrulled. but an application for an appeal to the Supreme Court was grant 'd and Daniels was released on $2,000 bond with 60 days’ time i;: .vhich to perfect his appeal. Whether an appeal will bi taken is unknown; Capt. A S. vlcKennon, on of the attorney.' for the defense, stated that ii probadly would. Shortly after the verdict wat rendered, friends of Daniels be ^an to circulate a petition t< Governor Donaghey for Daniels’ Pardon, While the case has attracted much attention, through the fact that fcoth tht defendant and the deceased wen well known throughout tin state, and the courtroom has been crowded to its limit since the trial began Monday, the cast has been devoid of sensational ism, which, it was thought, would characterize it. The Ga zette erred in a detailed concern ing the testimony of Dr. E. W. Smith of Little Rock and of Mrs. Daniel’s sister. Their testimony was that Daniels told them the story of the killing at different times and not, as was reported, at the same time. The state ment that the testimony of both was ruled out is erroneous. THANKS! Our hearts go out in gratitude to you all who have helped us in so many ways during my sick ness since July. Our prayer and faith is that He who rewards the > least ministry to one of his little j ones will abundantly bless you; and jrours. J. P. Caliicott j and Wife.
