[Per United Press Association.] TIMARU, August 22. After being locked up all night, the jury in Birrell's case returned a verdict of " Guilty." Sentence was deferred pending the consideration by the Court of Appeal of two technical points. One indictment was withdrawn and two others held over till next sitting. Bail was fixed in LSOO and two sureties of L 250 each. In the appeal against the conviction and fine of L2OO against the South Canterbury Refrigerating Company judgment was reserved. • CHRISTCHURCH, August 22.
