The ballots taken by the jurors are said to be as follows: First ballot,-one for -murder in the first degree, seven for voluntary'manslaughter, one . for 'murder in the second degree .with a recommendation for mercy, and three for acquittal; second ballot, nine for voluntary manslaughter and three for acquittal; th.ird ballot, twelve for voluntary manslaughter. Egginton received the verdict with apparent indifference, although it is understood that he strongly hoped for an acquittal. Next Monday was fixed as the day for the passing of sentence". The penalty for voluntary manslaughter is confinement in 'the State prison for not less than one nor more than ten years. At the time lixed for the sentence counsel for Kgginton will argue a motion for a new trial. The'attorneys will base their motion largely upon the following Instruction given 'to the jury by Judge Norreh, their contention being that the instruction was erroneous: "You are instructed that if you bc- lieve from the evidence in this case that the defendant Egginton fired the fatal shot intending to wound Martin Mock, even though you believe that he did not intend to kill him' that it makes no difference whether he intended to kill him or not, if the shot did actually cause his. death he is guilty in he had lired intending to kill, because me law says thai a man using a deadly weapon unlawfully is responsible for the consequences whether they are greater than he intends or not."
