UNITED STATES COURT. Sudden Termination of the Existence of tiio Petit Jury—Xlie Grand. Jury Survives. Late yesterday afternoon Judge Tripp issued an order for the disoharge of the petit jury and the continuance of all untried cases. The oaiise of this per emptory action was the admission of the United States attorney that he had no case ready for trial, whereupon the urt concluded there was uo use keep the jury waiting longer, so he let lem go. S it *1 6 •i O *3 3s There was under preparation for trial pair of horses from Major Carrier ow Creek reservation. A jury had been secured when the United States attorney announced his inabilit to proeeed with the case owing to the absence of an important witness, and asked that the trial be postponed a few da^s, To this the court objected on tbe ground that it was impracticable to keep a jury waiting several days and that the government had had ample time to prepare for trial. The attorney suggested that it would not discommode the government much to wait. Judge Tripp replied in effect that he was run ning that part of the business and con cluded by declaring the esse continued and the panel discharged. There being no other cases ready for trial, all the United States petit jurymen were dis charged and all the jury oases go over until the fall term. The business of the jury foots up—one conviction, one acquital and two pleas of guilty. Henry Jaoobs was found guilty of selling liquor to Indians, O. C. Jewett was tried for forging land papers and acquitted aud John Riba and W. O'Hara plead guilty to charges of selling liquor to Indians.
