draw a crowd that more than filled the

Stormont on Monday, with Atty. Mullen
for the defendant and Atty. S. B. Kama
pleaing (or the plaintiff in thu larceny case

of Baumtown. The plaintiff claimed the
defendant bad administered a stupefying
drug with intent to feloniously steal the
money lie had about his person which
was to the amount of $45 and among the
missing. The half dozen witnesses in the
case were thoroughly German and when
the attorneys began their interrogation,in
each case they were stupefied with a
mixture of German and English, and it
was onlv through the assistance of Judge
Kraus as interpreter that the case was
tried. The Justice after hearing the
testimony discharged the prisoner on the
strength of the evidence that claimed the
prosecutor had drugged himself with
'•o' be joyful" and was not capable of
ascertaining where his money had got to.
