“This is so because the 1st defendant counsel reacted on the application of the learned counsel for the prosecution for adjournment of trial until Nov. 7.

“The first defendant counsel asked for another date other than Nov. 7.

“So that is why the matter is adjourned at the instance of the defendant, not at the instance of the prosecution.

“This matter is hereby adjourned at the instance of the defendant until Nov. 21 and Nov. 22 for continuation of trial.”
