Jury in U.S. v Johnson out all night
& unable to agree at noon today - discharged.
Called the case of U.S. v Johnson for a
second trial this morning - there is much
feeling against him - he seems to be a very
bad character when drunk - he is known as
"Eat-em up" Johnson - for his fighting proclivities
when drunk. All day trying to get a jury but
not finished yet - adjourned our efforts at
5 oclock till tomorrow morning hoping
that the arrival of the "Portland" from westward
will bring us additional jurors. Wrote
to Debbie today - Am to have an informal
reception at "Tilicum Club" tonight.
