At the Supreme Court this morning, the charge of personation preferred against the Hon. J. Pharazyn was heard. Defendant alleged his second voting was through his mind being much occupied and that it was quite unintentional. The Judge summed up briefly, and after referring to the evidence, gave it as his opinion that the offence was committed. He directed the jury as to the finding of a verdict. After a few minutes’ deliberation, the jury returned with the following special verdict : —“ We find that Mr Pharzyn, having voted at the election for Thondon, did apply for a second voting paper in same electorate, but that the application was made under the impression that he was voting in a different electorate, and for another candidate.” The prisoner contended this was a verdict of “ Not guilty.” The judge, however, held that it /rasa verdit of “ Guilty,” and reserved the question for the Court of Appeal, the prisoner being bound over in his own recognisances of LSO, to appear for judgment when called upon.
