A Conditional Finding.
Judge Kd wards yesterday handed
down Ills finding In the case of George
II. Wlnans against the Sanderson Oil
and Specialty company. He gives a
conditional verdict for the plaintiff.
The put pose of tho suit was to com
pel the company to transfer to the
plaintiff on the books of the company
twenty shaies of the capital stock and
Issue to him n now ceitlflcato of stock
on the stirtender and cancellation of
the old one.
The defendant company bought out
the flini ol' Samlet son & Rlchart, the
consideration being "10 shuies of the
capital stock of the now compiny. Mr.
Rlchart sold twenty of his 120 shares
to Mr. AVlnans. When Mr. Wlnans
some time later sought to have the
stock transfer! ed on the books, the
company Ignored his demand, claiming
that Mr. RIchatt was Indebted to the
company and that the debt was a lien
on tho stock, or, in other words, that
the consideration lecelved by the com
pany for Mr, Rlcbatt's stock had failed
It appears that when the Sanderson
& Rlchart firm submitted its Inventory,
pi ev Ions to selling out, It omitted from
tho list of liabilities a number of un
cancelled obligations by a mistake In
bookkeeping oi something of that sort
ovet valued the assets.
Judire Ddwards finds that the Ttlch-
init stock is liable foi one-hatf of tho
omitted liabilities, or JI08.39, and dir2cts
that this must be paid by either Mr.
Richait or Mr. Wlnans befoie the com-
i pany is obliged to issue to Mr. Wlnans
the now oei tiflcate he demands.
The vsheteabouts of the other hun
ched shaies of the Richait stock does
not come to light In the evidence.

JURY HAS THE
CLOSING ADDRESSES MADE YES
Judge Archbald Askcd the Common
wealth's Representative to Give
Him Some Enlightenment as to the
Evidence in the Case Which Might
Wnraut a Conviction of Murder in
the First Degree and in Charging
tho Jury Said He Did Not Think
Evidence Sustained Such Finding.
At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon tho
jury befoie whom Simon Nerushns was
tiled for the unit dor of John Mlskus
on March 18, 1S96, retlicd to dellbeittto
on the case.
On the opening of court yesterday
morning W. R. Lewis tiddiossed the
Juiy In behalf of the defendant. Ho
laid pattlcular sliess on the evidence
given bv Mrs. Lee, John Van Bet gen,
jr., Anthony Miller and wlfo and John
Brctosh, all of whom gave evidence
which. If believed, would exonerate1 the
Assistant Dlsttlct Attorney Thomas
made tho closing nddicss for the com
monwealth, dwelling particularly upon
the alleged admissions by tho defend
ant pi lor to his an est and the testi
mony of the ptosecutlnn as to the tils
position of the body of the deceased by
the defendant. At tho conclusion of
the uiguinents a iccess was taken until
1.30 p. m.
Bofoie beginning his charge to
Juiy Judge Archbald requested
commonwealth's attorneys to enllgln
the couit ns to the evidence In the case
warranting a conviction of murder
of the fii st degree. Mr. Thomas argued
that the fact that there was evidence
of an axe having been used was suUl
clent to wan ant the submls.sslon of the
question to the jury. Another question
raised by the court at this time was
whether, In case the jury simply be
lieved that the defendant had only dis
posed of the body that Is, had taken it
to the culvert In his wagon the de
fendant could then be convicted un
der tho ptesent Indictment.
CHARGE TO THE JURY.
The charge to tho jury was begun
at 2.30 o'clock. After giving general
instructions as to the law peitninlng
to cases of this character the court dis
cussed t'be evidence on tho part of tho
defendant, tending to show that the
death of Mlskus was due to an acci
dent on the railroad at or near the
culvei t, and that of the commonwealth
tending to show foul play.
"The delay Is one of the strong things
against this case," said the court. The
fact that the case was instituted by a
piivate prosecutor, which in connection
with the delay and other clrcumstanes
seemed to suggest that there was
something besides a mere desire to
I have justice meted out, was leferred to
as well as the ctltlleuitics ot inorougn
investigation owing to tho fact that
the tiaities dltectly interested were all
