amount of the fine . imposed, or
It Is stated that the request for this

who will fix the bond as soon as the
district attorney reaches here tha first
next week. The Standard, of
course, will fight any such demand on
fha part of - the prosecuting otf lolals

sesses or can command.
However, should a wrtt of error be
granted today, the case will pass out

who will lave it within his power to
set aside the fine Imposed if ho so
