Hls case and all the others not illsposel of were contlnued to 2.9J o'clock In the afternoon. Constable E. U. Thayer drew the jury, but H was not untll after 9 o'colck at nlKht that the Jury Hnally was im panelled. some belng excused for cause. some belng out of rpach of the olllcer, and some belnB lahl aside for other rea .on. The Jury as Hnally made up ron slsted of M. J. Mornn. foreman, A. W. Hoel. Georne K. Toster. H. V. Sarnent. Jeromo KnlKht and Krank A. B.irr. Jones testltled that he made a purchas.e of Fnj."t at the Valley Bottling cominy s s.tloon on Flat strect one evenlnu ln June. He sald he was not asked hls aKe by any KTKon and that nothlng was sald about hls aRe. 3rost rememliered maklnR the sale. but (-ald he a.ked Jones If he was 21 and that Jones replled that he was mo-it 22. Frost snld he had not the sIlRhtest doubt but that Jones was over 21 and dld not know whv he asked the question. He sald he never took any other means to flml out Jones's ase and that he never would have sold hlm any liquor If there had been any doubt as to whether he was entltled to lt. W. G. Shaffner rememlh-red hearlnR Frost ask Jones hls aRe on the occaslon in questlon. He testlfied that the occa slon was flxed ln hls mlnd because Jones asked hlm about ROlnR to a dance ln Guilford C'fntre. Shaffner sald that on a subt-equent occaslon he (Shaffner) asked Jones hls aRe, althouRh he had heanl Jones tell hls aRo to Frost. O. H. Kllls remembtied the June lncldent, and recalled hearlnR Jones tell Frost that he was over 21. He sald he had had no talk wlth Fro.it about Jones slnce the hearlng before the commissioners. State's Attorney Schwenk made the openliiR nrgument. H. C. Bacon and K. S". Glbson, counsel for the respondcnt, staled thelr eontentlon and State's At torney Schwenk closed. The substance of the arRument for tho state was that the evldence was concluslve, that by Frost's own admlsslon he was Ruilty of selllnR to a mlnor, and that that was sulllclent under the law. The law dld not state that a person who sold to a mlnor " knowlnRly " was gullty, but that he was gullty If he old to a mlnor at all, whether knowlnRly or otherwlse. The respondent's lawyers quoted oplnions and decl.slons in other states whlch they clalmed showed that a person could not commit a crlme by an act alone, but that the act must be aeomimnied by an Intcnt to commit crlme. They held that In thls case there was no crlmlnal Intent and so thc respondent was not RUllty. The- Jury went out at 11.33 and re turned at 12.23 Sunday mornlng. Fort man Mornn announced to the court that the jury dld not agree and that it would be useless for them to dejlbcrate on the matter any longer. The Jury was dls missed and the case contlnued to Mon day mornlnR. On Monday mor.ilng, Justlco Ncwton belng b'jsy wlth other matters, lt was agreed to try the case before Justlco J. H.

Gleason. The evldence introduccd was in substance the same as at the llrst hearlng. but the arguments were more protraeted. The otdy new wltness was Frank I'ratt, who testllled that he had I. een employed to open a set of books for the Valley Ilottllng company and to look after the bookkeeplng to u certaln cxtent. He snld that, judRlng from what he saw and heanl, the lntent of the Val ley Bottling company had been to be eareful about selling to mlnors. IIo sald he had heanl them ask young men thelr ages and hail seen them turn down young men and men who were more than 21. The Jury rendereil a verdict of not gullty after belng out 10 minutes. After the Jury was dlsmlssed State's Attorney hVhwciik announced that on ncount of the necessary absence of the attorneys for the defenso the other prosecutlons were contlnued Frlday tnorning (today) at 'J o'clock, before Jus tlco Merrlileld, that belng the agrecmcnt of coun-el.
