Sharp, Route C. 71t2Gwt4 FRANK ARMI ACQITTTED OF Alt-SON CHARGE BY Jt RY WEDNES-DAY JURY LOtKED IP FOR NIGHT. Frank Armi, charged with burning a building at Corcoran two months ago, faced a Jury in the superior court Monday for his trial on a charge of arson. District Attorney Miller, Deputy District Attorney Sharp, and Arthur Keatli, the latter representing an insurance company, are conducting the prosecution, and F. J.

Pryor, Frank Curtin and Henry Briekley of Fresno, are counsel for the defendant. District Attorney Miller in his statement to the Jury, said it would be shown by the prosecution that the defendant started several fires in the pool hall of which lie was proprietor and that he had Insurance on the contents. Tho statement of Attorney Pryor for the defense was hat the prosecution could prove nothing of the kind, but on the other hand the defense would show that the fire started by an explosion from a distillate stove which was lighted by the defendant the morning tho fire occurred. Ho said It would bo shown that a large part of the property of the defendant in the pool hall and also in the barber shop adjoining was not covered by Insurance, and that insurance had been cancelled on a player piano a few days before the fire took place. Only one venireman was excused from the first panel called into the box, the attorneys for the defense offering to take the panel without examination.

The talesmen were asked In a body by the district attorney if they had any bias or prejudice in such a case whero goods were covered by in-nurance, and when all answered In the negative all were accepted with the exception of J. G. Rajtlev of Corcoran, who was peremptorily challenged by the prosecution. Tho following composed the Jury: Butler Allen, Abraham Zimmerman, H. A.

Haymaker, Oscar S. Deardorf, Geo. A. Ritchie, Edgar Rea, Alfred E. Griswold, Levi Bloyd Charles C.

Church, Charles A. Iewis, Marcus C. Carter and George J. Harklcroad. The following witnesses for the prosecution duing the day: D.

J. Leary. Sheriff L. D. Farmer, Allen Ross, W.

F. Crane, A. II. Johnson and C. I.

Haler. Declaring that a distillate stove which did not work properly was the cause of the fire that destroyed his blllard hall in Corcoran last December, Prank Armi took the stand in his own behalf Tuesday and undertook to break down the charge ot arson on which ho was being tried. He stated that when he started to light the fire on the morning of the conflagration, there was an explosion and the flames quickly spread to all parts of the building. In addition to the defendant a large number of witnesses were called by the defense find by the prosecution in rebuttal. Shortly before 3 oclock the testimony was finished and after a ton-minute recess the arguments were taken up and were in progress when this report closed.

After occupying tho Jury sleeping quarters for the night at the court house, the jury in tho caso of Frank Armi of Corcoran, charged with arson, returned a verdiit of not guilty at 9 odork Wednesday nnd was lts-chargcd from the case. Tho caso wont to the jury shortly after 5 oclock Tin sday afternoon, and after deliberating until shortly before 9 oclock that night the lury reported that there was what seemed to be a hopeless disagreement. Judge 'hort, however, refused to discharge the jury and oidercd It locked up for the night. On the first ballots taken there were four voting for conviction and eight for acquittal, but as the voting proceeded. tho minority was reduced until when the jury retired tho vote stood two for conviction nnd ten for acquittal.
