NEW TRIAL GRANTED.
Supreme Court Reverses Judgo Burnett in
the Movers Case,
The supreme court has revorscd the
decision of Judge Burnett, In tho
Magcrscase, and orders a new trial.
The supremo court holds that Judgo
liurnctt erred in two particulars, as
claimed by Magers' counsol, as will
appear by tho following memorandum
of the decision, which Is efllcial:
This cause comes here on defend
ant's appeal from tho Judgmont of
death pronounced upon him by the
circuit court, for Polk county; and
it appearing from tho record that tho
court erred at tho trial thereof.
1. In refusing to declare to the Jury
the time when tho sun set Scplouibor
13, 1808, the day when an alleged
homlcldo Is supposed to have been
committed, the fact In question being
material in the case.
2. That assuming, as the counsel
on both sldcsndmlttcd In the argu
ment, that all tho testimony In the
case In referenco to Intent with which
tho killing is Inferred to have been
done Is contained In tho bill of excep
tions, an Instructions to tho jury that
they might liavo found defendant
guilty of manslaughter would haye
been proper and should liavo been
The Judgement Is thcrcfo;o reversed
nod tho cause will be remanded for a
Owing to the near approach of the
May term at Pendleton tho court Is
unable for want of time, to f annulate
an opinion at present, but It will be
completed at an early day and tiled
as of this date.
Judgo Uurnett's reversal In the su
preme court will cost Polk county in
tho neighborhood of $1,000, as tho
cuso must bo tried over, The conduct
of tho trial by the Judge at the time
was criticised as unjust to tho de
fendant and his counsel, who cannot
be blamed for having taken advan
take of tho errors of the law and the
evident prejudice of tho court. In
spite of the fact that Magers as
saulted the sheriff, and thus pro-
ludlced hMu4e uy his conduct, the su
premo court reverses Judgo Uurnett's
rulings and orders a new trial.
