Kand Ntrlcklln's Arm Broken.
Dr. O. W. Yeargain was called to
Highland on Saturday to attend Rand
Stricklin who had been kicked by a
horse. He found the bones of the el
bow broken in several places in what is
known as a multiple fracture. The
bones were iet as well as could be and
on Tuesday Mr. Stricklin was brought!
to town. On account of the complex
nature of the fracture he is likely to be
troubled with a stiff arm. The accident
occurred while Mr. Stricklin was help
ing to break a horse to the saddle. He

and forcing him intoa corner against the

The following witnesses were sul-
prenaed : For the state, W
J. L. Thomas, A. B. Diuiick, J. L.
Shank, J. L. Ball, E. N. Foster. J. N.
Tracey. For the defense, H. Kellogg,
James Wright, H. Miller, Lew Shanks,
Ray Fisher, C. R. Noblitt and Stingley.
While the opportunity for lengthy
pleas was wanting, there being no ques
tion of law involved and but little con
tradictory evidence, the counsel on both
sides made the most of the case.
Prosecuting Attorney W. N. Barrett
opened for the state with a clear and
concise statement of the case which he
presented forcibly and efficiently. Hon.
Henry McGinn, one of the best criminal
lawyers in the state, alone conducted
the defense H is plea was a strong pre
sentation of the few facts favorable to
his client and was delivered with forcible
effect. Many in the packed court room
believed after his speech that the verdict
would not be murder in the first degree.
Geo. C. Brownell had been engaged by
the Suter family to aid the prosecution,
and he made the closing speech, which
was a careful review of the testimony
and a fluent appeal for justice and the
maintenance of the law.
Judge McBride in bis charge to the
jury left the question of evidence entirely
to the jury, but instructed them plainly
as to their duty under that evidence after
they had considered it. At 8:30 the
jury retired to weigh the evidence which
two hours later resulted in a verdict con
demning the prisoner's neck to the halter.
At the conclusion of the trial Judge
McBride went home, but was sent for at
10:30 and returned to the court room

extent of their dastardly purpose.
