ire now in jail charged with perjury
while another is out on one thous-
uul dollars bail.
The case came up before Judge
Kingsburry last Friday and as two
of attorney Case's witnesses were
evidently lying he referred the court
to that section of tho law which
gives circuit Judges tho authority to
.summarily commit for perjury.
Judge Kingsbury at once com
mitted two of tho witness of Mr.
Case. At this point Mr. Correa who
represented tho other side stated
that he would render any assistance
possible in bringing to justice the
parlies who had committed perjury.
The following day some of Mr.
Correa's witnes.-os were committed
for perjury and others investigated.
Attorney Correa went to tho County
Attorneys office and a warm spat
took place between him and Deputy
County Attorney Vincent.
When the case came up again in
the Circuit Court Judge Kingsbury
expressed himself very strongly on
tho matter of perjury and on coach
ing witnesses, lie said he had been
sorely vexed and discouraged be
cause so many come into court and
Ho said while he was satisfied
that the witnesses in the case had
been drilled that a study of the testi

Since the confession of the guilty
ones no one believes Nosaki guilty
and all who at first gave testimony
that pointed to his guilt now admit
they are tho perjuries and that No
saki told tho truth on the stand.
Judge Kingsbury asked Kawano
to take tho stand Thursday morn
ing. Ho did so and slated ho wished
to correct a statement ho had made.
He said "I .never saw any money
handed from Daido to Nosaki."
This was a direct contradiction of
his former testimony and is material
in that it will clear Nosaki and will
leave the disputed table in the hands
of the one who claims it.
. Attorney Correa was ' present and
asked permission to ask tho witness
i fewjiucstions which permission
was granted. Ho asked Were your
former statements made, volunlarily

one. He replied "No one told liio
to make those statements.
