SATURDAY, APRIL 23. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Weekly Chronicle — 30 April 1881

? BiTTJBDAT, APEIL 23. The Attorney-General before calling evidence fcr the defence, said the case had really re Bolved itself into something much simpler than opened by Mr. Downer. Its progress had indi cated how an able advocate was sometimes led astray by his versatile diction. The picture drawn seemed to indicate a whole' system of slanderous statements by tbe defendant, com mencing from the early part of 1876. then from 1679 down to the present moment. Fortunately tbe case was not being tried before a jury, for if it hud the way in which it had been opened would have been a very serious matter to him. The evidence called showed how very trivial tbe case really was. The claim referred to three different dates, only one of which was connected with the evidence. In November, 1880, the alleged slander wa--, 'the National Mutual is insolvent, and is going to smash,' Of this there was no evidence. His Honor— If I am substanially with {the plaintiffs I will allow them to amend. I will...
