|Preliminary examination of Phillip Barry Jr, for the shooting of Timothy Ahern at Plush two weeks ago is now going on before Justice W. Bayley at the Courthouse. Up to this morning, only two witnesses have been examined, Dr. Steiner and Willis Scammon. The Latter is the main witness for the state and much depends upon what Mr. Scammon testifies to. On Thanksgiving, Deputy Dist. Atty. Geo. Nickerson filed an information against Phillip Barry for manslaughter, and a bail was fixed at $3,500, which was furnished without delay. Since then Mr. Barry has been out on bail. Yesterday Dist. Atty. Cohn withdrew the complaint of manslaughter, and filed one of murder. Should this charge be sustained by the evidence, Barry will be bound over to await the next term of circuit court.|
