At the close of the reading of the
report, Judge Fall made a" few
pertinent remarks and thanked the
grand jury for its effective work during
the session. 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.
