Leven's court this morning to witness
the case against Albert Harris and
family, for assaulting young Henry
Klink on Tuesday night, while en
route to his home. Harris and wife
were fined $10 each and costs,
amounting to $28. The testimony
given on both sides was about the
same as that eiven before Justice
Halsted yesterday morning. Klink
stated in addition to his testimony on
yesterday that Harris called him
vile names, and threatened to kill
him. Wm. White, who was with
Klink from 7 o'clock in the evening un
til they reached the former's home,stat
ed that he heard loud talking and the
report of a gun ; heari Harris say,
"fve got you now, and will kill you,"
which was accompanied with vile
oaths and boisterous talking. Charles
Felter said that he heard the shooting
and heard Mr. Harris say that he
would kill Klink.
At various times during the pro
gress of the trial, Aunty Harris would
ask to be permitted to question Klink
about throwing the rocks.
Joseph Kliuk, lather of Henry, tes
tified that Harris has been in the
habit of shooting on an average of
three times a week during the past
four months.
All of Klink'switnesses testified that
they heard Harris threaten Klink's
