There were a number ef discussions bet ween counsel for the prosecution aad defense as to the admlsibtlity of eertaia testimony. This consumed most of tbe forenoon.

To this ths defense objected, oa the ground that, aa the indictment was tor manslaughter, such testimony was not admissible. At S o'clock Judge Tulev decided that the evidence relating to tbe shooting, three weeks before James Jones was killed, waa not ad-misaable, but the evidence as to the defendant making threats to kill was admitted.
