WISH ART KOT TRIED FOR PERJURY
After Some Lively Evidence, a Non-Snlt
Ordered, wlib a Question of Cost Open
lug of tho Dlnrch Term.
One of the flattest of the flat cases, was that
of Juryman Edgar against M.W. Wishart for
perjury, which came up beforo Judge White
yesterday. Messrs. Marshall & Rcbman ap
peared for the defense, and Robb & Moore for
Atone time affairs looked rather blue for
tho defense, when W. D. Moore made his little
statement to the jury, in which be explained
that the famous affidavit of Wishart was, from
their standpoint, willful and corrupt perjury.
After some delay, this affidavit, urging alleged
misconduct on the part of Edgar and one
other juryman at the time S3 indictments had
been ignored and the costs placed on Wishart.
Tho prosecution then placed Attorney
William Yost on the stand and from that mo
ment the tide of affairs turned. Yost said in
December, 1ES7, he bad dictated the affidavit to
Captain Wishart who wrote it and it was
sworn to according to his rule.
When the time came to introduce the affi
davit as evidence Marshall at once objected
on the grounds that it was a voluntary affidavit,
made with no specific purpose, and hence tbis
removed the taint of perjury. A lively shuffle
then ensued, in which everybody figured, and
Jndee White came out on top with his decision
"1 believe Yost's statement is correct, and I
sustain Marshall's objection. I remember the
caso very well, and 1 remember the affidavit
was read at my request, and Yost did not want
to read it as it was irrelevant, but he complied
with my request.
Moore The rule of the court to admit it as
evidence was absolute, and Wishart cannot es
cape the consequences of impeaching a grand
Judge White repeated that the objection Is
Moore That ends our case.
Judge White explained that the jury had the
privilego ot placing the cost on either party
they thought just, as enough had been shown
to justify a suit being brought. The jury was
out when the court adjourned. The case is
another victory for the Law and Order Society.
The libel suit in connection with the same case
will come up to-day.

Judso Slagee More Than Hint at Certain
Privilege Enjoyed by Gamblers.
The March term of the Criminal Court was
opened yesterday morning by Judges Magee
and White. The grand jury for the term was
called up to receive the judges' charger which
was delivered by Judge Magee. He explained
the duties of the grand jury and bow they
should be performed. He added:
"The community has been often startled by
the frequency of homicides, the reason of it
being that there are many houses kept and
maintained tn violation of law. We hear on
all sides that there are gambling houses en-
gaged in selling liquor without license and
ept open in violation of law. The proprietors
of such places deserve punishment, and you
have promised that such cases shall receive
Continuing, the judge told the jury that tbey
have power to originate charges, and intimated
that too many privileges are accorded the
sporting fraternity. He also read the act of
assembly governing constables'.retuins, so that
no excuse can hereafter be offered by con
stables that they did not know the law. The
grand jury then retired and commenced on the
work before It. The following was the result
of its first day's work:

Prisoner and Conrt Agree With Regard to
Some Aldermanlc Cases.
During the progress of the alleged Wishart
perjury case, some amusement was caused by
the remarks of Judge White, and a prisoner
who was brought up for sentence.
Ballait, a meek and mild-mannered man, was
brought in for sentence. He had been found
guilty of carrying a deadly weapon, and Judge
White, in imposing a fine of $5 and costs, said
be bad made it light, but had imposed a fine
because Ballait had not acknowledged carrying
Ballait Your Honor, may I make I state
ment! Judge White (surprised, but smiling) Why,
Ballait I did not care to tell the Alderman
whether I carried a weapon or not; Nowadays,
when a man is brought np before a Justice, it
doesn't make any difference if he's guilty or
cot; he is fined or held for court.
Judge White (amidst a general laugh)
There's a great deal of truth in that.
Ballait departed satisfied that he had Mass
