He has already beeu iu jail for

The case came up at this term, a
new trial having beeu allowed by
the So in r me Court. 1 lie trial was
act to begiu Thursdav and a sic'ial
veniie of l.V) men from which to
draw a jury was summoned. Th.'
jury was selected ou Thursday, aud
the woman, who was the principal
witness, nnd her father gave their
testimony. After hearing the tes
timonr. which was materially much
weaker than that iriven by the
woman at the former trial, the So
licitor stated tliat he could not aok
for a verdict of guilty. Judge Jus
tico said tliat he could uot, after
hearing the testimony, allow the
verdict to stand if the (ury should
hud guillv. This turn of the case
caused the prosecution to submit it
as a simple assault. On this charge
the Judge gave a sentence of thirty
davs on the roads which was as
high as he could go by law, and
then sentenced Marsh to an aildi
tiiiiia) eleven' months for carrying
