It was then discharged. Most of the time of the court last week was taken up with the trial of cases from Sierra county. The attachment case of Ridenour, Baker & Co. vs. C. J. Price was concluded on Monday ad versely to the plaintiffs and on Tuesday the Armijo murder case was taken up. This case has been tried twice before. The first trial resulted in the disagree ment of the jury. On the second trial of the case the defendant was convicted of murder in the first degree and an ap peal was taken to the supreme court of the territory and a new trial ordered. The trial here last week resulted in the acquittal of the defendant. The case of Ridenour, Baker & Co. vs. C. J. Price, an action in assumpsit to re cover on a note given by the defendant and Robert Hopper in 1888 to the plaint iffs, occupied less time than the attach ment case tried a few days before. The judge instructed the jury to find judg ment for the plaintiffs in the amount sued for. The case of the territory vs. D. M. Potter for burglary was one of the most interesting cases yet tried at this term. The defendant was charged with break ing into J. J. McEwen's store and taking therefrom two hams and $1.50 in money in August, 189.'!. The evidence against Potter was circumstantial on the part of the territory, while Potter proved by his wife and daughter that he was at home at the time the robbery was committed. The jury found the defendant not guilty. Another case of importance was that of Fritter against the Western Union Telegraph company. This case was brought to recover damages from the telegraph company for failure to prompt ly deliver a message to the plaintiff con cerning a lottery drawing, on account of which it was alleged that the plaintiff was damaged in the sum of $:i,750. The jury found for the plaintiff and assessed the damage at 25 cents. On Monday the case of Colby vs. White, on appeal from the justice's court of this precinct came up. The plaintiff claimed damages in the sum of $70.50 to a horse, buggy and harness, alleged to have been wrongfully taken and used by the defendant in whose pos session the horse, buggy and harness were damaged to the amount claimed. The case was decided in favor of the de fendant, who claimed that the property was rightfully in his possession by vir tue of a contract bet ween the parties and that the damage did not result from any carelessness or negligence on his part.
