Then Thompson himself was put on the stand.

In his conversation with Low after the search, he swore that Low said to him, "I need a new suit-Of clothes and think it is up to you to ;buy me one on this deal."

Pratt, three bills amounting to and Pratt had taken .the number of them and kept a memorandum of it. He had never traced the and said there was nobody present when he gave Low the money. He also said that he had given Low on three different oc- casions after. Pratt was called to substantiate Thompson's evidence. He said he had been convicted twice of selling liquor without a license, that'he had laid a trap for Low by taking the numbers on the bills that Thompson is suppos- ed to have given Low. fie said he was present when Thompson gave Low money.
