Isaac Crawfürd, of Arm Arbor, has a son who s publisher of the Saturday Telegram of East Saginaw. Stanton Crawford, another son of Isaac, is the agent of the Telegram in Ann Arbor, and last Saturday was (ried before Justice Pond charged with circulating papers that are given up largely to the publication of deeds of lust and crime. The case occupied the whole day, and eicited nauoh interest, the ex-clergyman and father acting as attorney for his son. The agency was not disputed, but the defense exhibited copies of the Detroit Free Press and Thk Ann Arbor Register with passages marked, which, he claimed, were just as bad as the Telegram. The officer, however, was not trying young Crawford for circulating anything but the Telegram ; and the law makes a distinction between papers which deal largely or almost entirely with such aubjects, and those which mention them only in the ordinary courge of givirg the news. The jury found young Crawford guilty and he was sentenced to pay $25 fine and $16 91 oosts, or b9 conflned n the county jiil for 30 days. The case was proraptly appealed: the Crawfords are fighters. Elmer S. Crawford, of Süginaw, hns cotrimcr.ced snit against Djputy SiieHfiF S'itberlad, asking $2,000 darnages for 47 opiea of tlie Telegram which that üfflcer confisoted.
