HALLARD’s Defence. I am totally innocent of the charge.

MARTHA GREEN re-examined. Did you not tell the magistrate that Buttery was a married man, and it would hurt his family if he came forward - A. He asked me if he was a married man; I said I did not know. I neither knew his name, nor where he lived.

HANDLEY’S Defence. At the time I was first introduced to the prosecutrix, the woman denied me - She swore to another man instead of me-the turnkey told her I was the man.
