j man language to the 'arge German
population is advocated by P. R- Kauf-
j man of Yeakley. who in a recent let-

Mr. Kaufman seriously obejets to

Conviction Reversed on Ground That
Only Six Men Served
Guthrie, Okla.—A decision by Jus-
tice D. A. Richard?on of the criminal
court of appeals, reversing the convic-
tion of Tullis Hill, a Guthrie man,
charged with bootlegging, will have a
great effect on futeure trials of prohib-
itory law violators in superior county
In the past it has been customary
in these courts, which exist only in
counties of over 30.000 population
containing a city of over 8.000, to try
a majority of cases with a jury of
six men, since It was generally sup-
posed by the legal world that the con-
stitutional provision allowing juries of
six men in county courts extended
over the superior court, which inher-
ited a county court jurisdiction. Es-
pecially was this true of bootlegging
Judge Richardson holds, however,
with Justices Owen and Furman con-
curring. that the superior court jury
consists of twelve men. and that an
act of the recent legislature allowing
jury trials therein by six jurors is un-
constitutionaL The decision is based
on the constitution itself, which ex-
pressly Unfits the ?ii-man Jury to
county courts, or courts not of record.
The superior court. It is held. Is not
a county court, and Is, of course, a
court of record.
Despite the fact that there have
been several hundred convictions of
bootleggers and other misdemeanor
cases, and a vast amount of civil bus-
iness dee ded in the superior courts
of Oklahoma City, Musktgee and oth-
er superior court towns, by a jury of
six. It Is improbable that this decision
will materially affect the*e past rase*.
No exceptions were saved relative to
this point, and in most of the cases
time for appeal has. of course, ex-
pired. The probabilities of many past
case* being reopened on this ground
is remote, though ths point will doubt-
less be immediately raised by some
