The time of the district court was taken up Tuesday and Wednesday with the case of the State of Idaho vs. William Ward, charged with adultery.
A jury was not secured until late Tuesday afternoon and the conclusion of the arguments came Wednesday evening. The case was tried behind closed doors, the nature of the evidence being such that it was best, in the opinion of the court, that the public be excluded.
The case was hard fought on both sides. The jury was out until about 10, when it was announced that a verdict had been reached, and the jury were brought into court and the verdict rendered finding the defendant guilty as charged.
Suppiger & Ogden conducted the defense and the prosecution was conducted by the county attorney, Frank L. Moore.
