"Mr. Brcndernaucl is my client.
He will not be the 'goat' in this case.
He was an employe, and whatd he

will not shield anyone. The idea
that has gone forth that the Sugar
Trust is putting up for dis defense
is wrong. The company is not con

receive n salary of $20,000 per year,
as has been said. He got a few
thousands, much less than thc-flgurcs
given. When he takes the stand
he will conceal nothing."

Judge Woodruff decided that thn

tho samo offense duos not mean that

believed the Jury reached 11 wrong cr
