Touching the amount of credence to bo given Her- dell's testimony , Judge Wyllo said it was not to be dhcrodltod because it was that of an accomplice , If It was corroborated by other witnesses and sustained by material theory and as pect of the case. In considering the testimony given by the defendants , the jury must make allowance for the temptation to which they wore exposed. He conld not grant the government's prayer that the jury be directed to regard ns circum stances tending to provo guilt , the refusal ot the defence to produce books aud other written evidence upon notlco. That was not law. It did not allow an unfavorable inference to bo drawn from auch refusal , but it al lowed the prosecution to glvo second' ary evidence , and it wna good for all U conld fairly prove , nnd it conld not afterwards bo impeached or contra dicted , The court thought the jury oould find any other of the defendant ! guilty of conspiracy with Rerdell.

Th < ninety-ninth prayer , admitting tin right of the jury to disregard the en tire testimony of a witness wh < knowingly aweara falsely on a mate rial point , was allowed. The nine teenth prayer , clothing the defendant with the presumption of Innocenci until proved guilty beyond a reasona ble doubt , was alao allowed.

At Bllse suggestion the jury were instructed structod they might find conspiracy between Peck and ono of the defend antr. The foreman aoked that thi jury bo furnished with a copy of thi charge , but Jndgo Wyllo amlllugli said that it was "all in the air. " Hi had no record of It. If the jurj were nt n loaa In regard to any point of law , the court , upon their appllca tlon , would relieve them. Bailiff were then sworn to take charge of thi jary.
