Cross - Examination by
Kinney Puts Negoro
in a Hole.
Negoro has apologized. Ho says bo's
sorry; ho Teally shouldn't havo dono it.
"Mca culpa," he cries, "but I really
didn't mean unjtking by it.""
Ncgoro apologizes to tho community
at largo and also to thoso of his
who havo como to harm or loss
through the notions of himself, his co-defendants,
the Nippu Jiji or tho Higher
"Wago Association. Ho apologizes to
cut body for o cry thing.
For two hours yesterday morning
W. A. Kinney subjected Negoro
to tho most tcrriblo cross examination
that a uinn could deise. Ho laid him
carefully on tho grill and turned him
over and ocr, basting him to a deep,
rich brown on every sldo. As a result,
Ncgoro got rattled and admitted everything
and apologized for everything. If
ho had been nBked to; ho would
have apologized for being alive.
The cross examination camo on top of
the two last hours of direct examination,
during which the defensOibad

Cceded in making during the trial. But , . , , , ,
Negoro lost his head under the searching
questions fired at him by tho chief
counsel for the 'prosecution and made
admissions fhat lie really need not' havo
made. Ho admitted thnUdiis'' usa in
tho Jiji of the use oftho ttorda
and "taizi," although intended
to bo taken only in the figuratho sense
and not literally, was perhaps unwiso
and inadvisable, in iow of tho fact
that thoro was a possibility of thero
being fanatics in the Japanese community.
Ho even tried to shift tho responsibility
for somo of tho illegal acts
upon his co defendants and tho Nippu
Jiji, being forced into this by tho
shrdwd questions of tho cross examiner.
Sheba in Background.
Kinney proved himself an adopt at
putting questions to tho witness which
put the latter in a bad hole, no matter
how ho answered or oven if ho did
not answer at all. On direct examination
Llghtfoot succeeded in getting a
number of matters before the jury in
one way or another which had been
ruled out of ewdenco by tho judge.
On cross examination Kinney adopted
tlio same tactics, and -with equal effect.
Although all reference to tho stabbing
of Sheba wis barred by tho order of
the court, Kinney succeeded in keeping
tho bleeding figure of tho editor of tho
Shinpo just in tho background where
tlio jury could feel its presence, even
if it could not seo it. Sheba 's narao the
was mentionod frequently by tho prosecuting is
nttorney, and evidently for tho n
purposo of keeping tho assault on tho
man fresh in tho minds of tho jurors. of
Time and again ho made the witness a
squirm, hesitate and appear at fault by
