A copy of the brief in the Williams
murder case, which was filed in the su
preme court a few days ago, has been
received at the office of Prosecuting At
torney Jlenciee. it is rather a unique
affair, and would tend to give one the
impression that the defense was indeed
"up against it." Less than four pages,
including the title page, is devoted to
the statement of the case and points
and authorities, the remaining thirty
four being devoted to paper on cor
pus delicti, read at the annual state at
torney's convention at De Kalb, 111.,
last July. Evidently McGinn has aban
doned all propositions on the appeal ex
cept that evidence introduced by the
state was not sutficent to support the
vercict of guilty. I he prosecution will
now be allowed twenty days in which to
file the state's brief and Mr. Menefee is
work'Ag hard in order to have it in by
that tune and not delay proceedings.
In ten days after that the reply brief is
to be filed, when the time for hearing
by the supreme court will be set.
