held iu i John Seys districtcourt at it Judge Neys decision that now The opin is very reviewing the unn upon which the decision is based is that Kiiigsley was found in his office fatally wounded by a

with the muzzle against the face and under the as evidenced by the eyelashes being and the nose burned and powder stained below the wound and the eyebrow and face above the wound being unaffected that he was a man of guod in the vigor of his physical and if observiii capable of and prompted by law of self preservation would have prevented a deadly assault with a pisuil placed against his face that such a position of the revolver is a natural one for a person committing suicide and an unnatural one for one taking the life of another even in the absence of anticipated resistance that but two shots were fired and but ever been one of Kingslny and one back of the defendant in the head against the that it is inevitable that both shots were fired by thc same person and by either Kingsley or defendant that imme diately preceding the tragic occurrence and connected with it was an altercation charges against Kingsley so grave and important to thc parties as rom their truth or falsity were provoca tions of the moment to serve either as a motive for the taking of human With these undisputed facts uninfluenced jy others the verdict of all men would be that the shots were fired by They

this respect Is in harmouy with that of the judge who prcsidedat the rial and gave to the testimony long and latieut attention with many added oppor uulties to know Its value and because of we are
