"Indian SOCIOLOOJST." to the trial of Dhingra, Arthur il-ey, pr nter, of 646, 11: ;ord-rcad, x nk, was tried oil an indictment alleg- 11," did "unlawfivlly and seditiously p ud publish and cause, to be printed and j d a scandalous and seditions libel in the fov; of a pr'nted document called the 'Indian h <01; gist in July, 1909. asainst the members of die Government of his Majesty and against tji ucace." The defendant pleaded guilty. D-aling with the July number, the Attcrney- Genoral said he did not propose to read any of it, but it contained the clearest and most crimi- nal incitements to general murder or alleged political grounds.

The Lord Chief Justice said he was quite willing to take the view that defendant di4i print this very terrible and wicked article with- out taking sufficient care and without knowing exactly what the contents were.

It is understood that steps will at once be taken to obtain signatures asking for a re- prieve..
