The sheriff of I'oiter county was
notified to give Sneed hi liberty
upon making the necessary ball. The
( t of opinion follows:

the state ami have filed briefs evi-
dencing research study unci thought

much attention However after a
iireful study of the record we have

"I have reached a different con-
. I nylon from a careful and thorough
s ' iicly of the evidence and briefs.
I am of the opinion that the His-
trlct Judc- was right in refusing ball
