Cosby decided lo sue in the provincial Supreme Court, but was told that the body had no jurisdiction in a case o! equity. He ordered L?wis Morris, Chief Justice, to "dcc:dc" that llu- court did have such power. Morris ruled otherwise, and as punishment for his honesty was removed from the twitch by the new governor. The former Chief Jus- ;:cctlon he had witnessed at East- chcster. • * * Tiic second issue carried a contributed editorial on the freedom of the press, and from that time on the Journal was hailed as a crusading exponent of freedom.

Several hundred members of the liberal electorate, knowing that the Cosby faction \\ould attempt, sonic sort cf scul- dungery, were on Hie scene all the previous night, and around bon- tirei expressed their feelings in seeches abotit tyrants and grafL- <-rs.

Next he ordered his handpicked Chief Juslice to demand a Grand Jury iitdiclmeat of the edt- ror. The Grand Jury refused to acl. Ccsby then sent a message to the Provincial Assembly, but with no better results. Finally he had his Attorney General arrest, Zenger on a charge of libel. That was November 17. I'm. Having no money for the excessive bail that was set. he was held in prison for nine months. At first hi was refused writing materials. His appearance stunned the >rosecution, and the Judge as well, fere was a man almost as famous n England as in America, a man not to be intimidated or cheated of his legal rights. His procedure was even more stunning. He made no denial of the deliberate publication of the articles which were alleged lo be "false, malicious and sedi- I llcnis." He admitted the publication, but not the falsity. He declared that the statements made in tlie Journal were absoluely true, and announced that he was ready, at his peril, to submit, a vast array of | proof that they were true.

Crisco protects digestion, too Before you French-fry another potato or make another pie—think this over: Crr'sco digests quickly. Crisco is the creamy, digestible shortening. Crisco gives you crispy fried foods good to cat—and good for you! Crisco pastry is light and flaky— digestible! Why? Because Crisco's secret process turns pure digestible oils into fluffy, digestible. Crisco.
