The trial of the man Carley, now confined in the Grafton jail, will come up at the date set for February 19th. The prisoner is accused of the murder of another hobo, who in company with others was making a trip to Grafton on Conductor Pratt's train during the lively scenes of last fall. The defendant will make a plea of self-defense and will likely be cleared. He claims that the man he shot, in company with two others, jumped into the car with the intention of holding up the crowd, and had started for him when he shot, killing the foremost.
