The case was set for one o'clock on Friday afternoon, and she was, waiting in the police station, in the j mat a voluntary-' statement cuter office of the chief, with Detec- Itive .Wallis and Probation Officer Lamb.

Made without any threat, etc. Virtue argued there was threat and that the police should not be allowed the privilege of question- ing an accused man when such privi- lege was not allowed TJudge or cotin- isel. His Lordship hold that even if there was a suspicion of a threat on j the part of tho police in obtaining j'a confession the accused was entitled i to the benefit-of. the doubt. He held that when Hetective Crerar said to the accused that would obtain a search warrant for the production of i the hide of the heifer, alleged to havo j been stolen and killed, it constituted I a throat, and he would not, therefore, allow the evidence. On this Dr. Coaybearc, who said that his case for the' Crown depended on the cdntession made by Gwilljm, entered a nolle, proseciui, or discontinuance of action, and the accused was discharged. This leaves the Croivn the liberty of. proceeding with the case on the find- of further evidence.
