The Amberley Burglars.
AN APPEAL AGAINST THEIR
Wellington, July 10
Mr Stringer, in opposing the application on behalf of the Crown, submitted that the case was one for a jury. It was no doubt a case of purely circumstantial evidence, but the cumulative force of the whole of the evidence was very great. The verdict was strictly in accordance with the weight of evidence, if the jury believed the witnesses for the Crowu, and that was a matter entirely for them. Prisoners having both spoken in reply, the Court reserved judgment, intimating that it would probably be delivered on Thursday morning.
