famous Colorado mining suit of Jsme
Doyle against Janus F. Ruin, former
president of the Portland Oold Mining
Doyle In his application for a new trial
chanted Burns witli attempting lo tamper
with the jury nnd to brlneing- outside In
fluence to bear on them. Judge Thotnell
In hi decision wholly exonerated the Jury
and granted the nw trial on the gTOund
alone of hi having erred In one of hi
intmctons to the Jury.
The Instruction In which the court ad
mitted having erred in giving it to the
Jury was No. H, which was as follows:
It is eluimed by th- defendsnt that the
plaintiff located the Portland claim nhout
January 22. 1M2. In the name of James
Doyle & 'o., and that the defendant had
no Interest In the location thereof, and
that about Msrrh 2. the defendant
located s claim called the Professor
Orulih. and that about March 14. ISC he
fthe defendant) traded a one-half Interest
in the professor Orubhs claim to the
plaintiff for a one-half interest In the
Portland claim, and that, in pursuance of
said Mereement. the nmes of both the
plaintift and the defendant ete inserted
In the location certificates of both of said
cl.-ilms and that be'ore said agreement of
exchange of one-half of the Professor
Hi ebb claim for one-half of the Portland
claim he it he defendant I had no interest
in the Portland, and the Muintlff had no
Interest In the Prolessor Orublis.
Now. if the evidence shows that the. de
fendant had no Interest in ttie Portland
prior to March, 1H9Z. and that the plaintiff
then iigreed to. or did. trade or exchange
with the defendant, giving a one-half in
terest in the Portland for a one-half in
lereat In the Professor Mruhhs claim, this
would be so Inconsistent with the plain
tiff's claim that he and the defendant en
tered into the conti-nct in question on Feb
ruary 2. TM. that veu would not be Justi
fied in flndlnc thut said Februarv I con
tract was mnde lietween the parties, and
in that event vour verdict should be for
the defendant. But whether such an-ex-

P.egarditig his itlmlt-d error in giving
tne jury this instruction Judge Thornell
s'd as toPows:
Instruction No. 14 is objected to on the
cronnd that It Invades the province of the
Jury bv instrucilng them that they must
draw a cerlatn inference of fact from other
tacts. If such other facts are shown. The
plaintiff brings suit on a contract that he
claims was made about February J. 1W1
under which he claims It was agree-d be
tween htm and rurns that each should own
one-half, share and share alike. In all min
ing claims then owned by them or that
should be acquired by them In the future..
lloth parties had an interest In the Port
land claim Hnd the question how that ln
. . .... ...niiirwd is onlv an evidential
matter bearing upon the question whether
the contract of February li, ciaunea
bv the plaintiff was made
Th Februarv 2 contract and that of
March 4. by which the defendant ciajms
half Interests In the fortiano: nno i rynepm.i (
en.Kl.u elalros wre tnuied. Willie ex.
trrmelv inconsistent, might both have been
made if the parties did not understand the
scope and meaning of the first contract.
The making of the second, contract would
not, as a matter of law. show that the
first was not tn.id.-. The existence of the
aecond contract would be strong evidence
that the first was not male, but the force
of the Inference would lie for the Jury- and
pot the court to determine.
This Inconsistency, if shown, was a mere
evidential fact and not a conclusion of law.
and In saving what loive and eff.-ct should
be given it tli court invaded the province
of the jury. The submission to the Jury ot
I lie second special mining ssaui vno"-u
lention to the matter contained in the
fourteenth instruction and enipliasixed a
mere matter of evidence as an ultimate and
controlling fact in the case.
Jary la Commended.
Referring to the charges of alleged mis
conduct on the part of the Jury and the al
leged attempts made to influence the mem
bers of It, Judge Thornell hsd this to say:
It is asserted that some of the jurors
were intoxicated oi under the influence of
Intoxicants while In the Jury box. I ob
served the- Jury closely. I was among them
at everv rece. nd morning, noon and
night. 1 am not without experience in sucn
matters. And I do aot believe that any of
the Jury e-ould have heen under the In
fluence of intoxicating liquors while in the
jurv box without niv knowing it.
1 regret verv much that the jurors have
been ubje -ted to such severe criticism as
bus been made in this case, as I believe
that all of these criticisms as to thiiif
moral conduct me without merit. 1 be
liee. on the whole, the Jury were above
the average In character and ability.
I do not say that things were not aaid and
done in the presence of the Jury by the
agents of the parties that oughi not to
tmce liceu saul uml done. 1 du not say that
some jurot did not make statements he
oti.'lil mil lii have mini. From the cll-
etiiiiMiance disdotrd by the e Idcne I
l It i iiic sons-' such statements wen- made
and statements that might, and would. In
my judgment, afl-ct the validity of the
The allele re old in this respeet shows
that the court made a mistake at the very
outset of this oase m not ordering that tha
jury be kept together under the charge of

PRaoKII tTTEMPT It I I.M MM:
Alia est It each the Oatalde Before
They Are Dlnroierril.
A second attempt on the (tart or some of
his wards to saw their way to liberty wss
frustrated yesterday morning by County
Jailer Gallup. Th prisoners Implicated had ,
succeeded in sawing half way through one I
of the bars of an outer window on the j
south side of the building when dlscov- i
Charles SNevenstin and Charlea Uoyd,
under IndlcAnent for robbing two pawn- I
brokers; Arthur lvi. under joint indict-
ment with Pat e'rowe on the charge of i
holding up two motor trews last July, and i
James Arthur, awaiting his second trial
for alleged complicity in the attempt to j
rob ths Treynnr hank, were the prisoners j
confined on th third floor where the at-
tempt was made, Cbarles Stevenson, who i
wa the ringleader In the former recent j
attempt to break Jail, admitted yesterdiiy
that he planned the attempt to saw
through the outer window.. Arthur, in the I
opinion of Jailer Gallup and Sheriff Can- j
nlng. was not implicated.
With the steel spring: or "shsnk" from !
nc tf his shoes Stevenson succeeded In j
.nunufacturing a small saw, the handle of
which was made of two pieces of kindling
wood tied together with twine. With this
Improvised tool Stevenson managed to saw
thtousli the liolt of the padlock on the
door leading into the outer corridor. Once
In the outer corridor access to the outer
window on the south side was easy and
Stevenson and hi accomplices met with
little difficulty in sawing through the iron
bar and were half way through with the
Job when discovered by Jailer Gallup. A
few minutes longer and they would have
hsd the bar sawed through. The drop I
from this window to the gmss plot below
would have been less than twenty feet.
Stevenson made no denial of the fact
that he planned the attempted Jail break.
He has already served three terms In the
state prison and he renllxe that If con
victed this time he may be sent up under
the habitual criminal act. which will prob
ably mean a twenty-year sentence.
On the occasion of the former attempted
jail break Arthur is said to have tried
to dissuade hi fellow prisoner from at
tempting it and this leads the sheriff and
Jailer Gallup to believe that he had no
hand in yesterday s attempt.
