THE MAYBRICK CASE.
[van PRESS association. 1
London, Angust 8. The news about tho May brick case shows tbat, although Mr Justice Stephens' summing up was favorable m the first portion, the conclusion was decidedly adverse. The feeling is so strong m Liverpool that it is deemed advisable to afford Mr Justice Stephens police protection, and he is now guarded by 150 police. Mrs Maybrick attributes the verdict to the judge's strictures on her fidelity. Petitions m favor of her reprieve, which are extensively signed, include the signatures of the leading barristers and merchants of Liverpool. In tho petition forwarded to the House of Commons the petitioners made a strong point of tho divergence of the medical evidence. Mr Matthews stated m the House of Commons that the petitions will receive full consideration. Ha remarked upon the outrage to Mr Justice Stephens that it was un-English to mob a Judge for doing his duty. Tho remark was loudly cheered.
