SUMMING UP BEGUN
IN THE O'NEIL TRIAL
Draft Conspiracy Case Probably
Will Go (o the Jury Late
Without prcventlns any witnesses or
evidence to attack the Government'
case, attorneys for Frank S. O'Neil,
Lieut. Oswald L. Simpson and William
Kelchback, who ore charged with con
spiracy to violate tliu Ejplonage Ast by
accepting money from prospective
pjjdrafted men to obtain freedom from
itmcc ocKan summing up dcioto
Judge Martin T. Manton in the Federal
District Court to-day.
None of the defendants went on thn
, tUnd, Martin Littleton, attorney for
O'Neil, read the Indictment to the Jury
arid then attacked It on tho ground hid
client hid done nothing to cause ills,
loyalty or dlscourago enlistment or re
cruiting A motion of the defenie to strike out
all testimony bearing on negotiation
for transfers from combatant to non
combatant brunches of the service wa
overruled by Judge Manton, who held
that the negotiations were not con
ducted In good faith.
Summing up perhaps will require nfl
day and the ease will probably go to the
Jury late this afternoon.

BIG HOTEL CHAIN
James Woods to Help "Jack"
Bowman With World's
Greatest Hotel Enterprise.
"Jack" Dawman has a new partner.
James Woods has como 3.000 miles
from San Francisco to assist the gs
nlal manager of the Ulltmorc, Bel
mont, Murray Hill, Manhattan and
Commodore Hotels In running tho
greatest chain of hotels In the coun
try. Mr. Woods left tho Waldorf-Astoria
thirteen years ago to tako chargo of
tho St. Francis, tho palatial caravan
sary of San Francisco. lie Just had
to go out West, because thoy needed
him to run the St. Francis. Then ho
Just had to come back to New York
because the ISowman chain of hotel
needed him to help run them.
Only a few people In San Fran
cisco know Mr. James Woods. I)ut
"Jimmy" Woods Is a popular Idol.
When ho resigned as I'ollco Commis
sioner and said "goodby" to tho St.
Francis, they wept tears and wlno.
They gavo a big banquet to him and
thero was a procession down to the
Oakland Ferry to see him off. All
tho cops were dressed in their best
uniforms, and they all rubbcrnockod
to give him their best saluto.
It was the second tlmo In six years
that ho had resigned from tho head
of tho department, and thoy thought
ho might como back again. Hut no;
"Jimmy" has returned to his old homo
and his old love for keeps. "Jack"
Uowman, who is Mr. Hoover's chief
assistant, says that ho is quarantined
here for good.
Well, they'll miss "Jimmy" on Mar
ket Street, and the roses in Union
Square" opposite the St. Francis will
surely wilt, for Jimmy Woods was
tho sunshine of Powell Street. His
smile made the cable cars run up hill.
When they had the Ore out In Ban
Francisco In 190S most of the hotel
wer pushed off the mnp by fire,
dynamite and utnei shocks. The St.
Francis slund up like q Jliiunch yacht
In a slirf khIp hi tta, nut the Interior
was wrecked In a manner that wasn't
nice. Mr. Wood gjincd permission
from the 1'nrk Commissioners to put
up a hotel In the park opposite. In
forty-five days after the fire the 8L
Francis Annex had 150 rooms ready
for occupancy. It was an oasis In a
desert of ashes.
Visitors to the Coast at that time
will recall that delightful hostelry In
Union S)uare, with Its flower-scented
shaded pathways leading to tho main
entrance. It was the real life of the
devastated city for many moons. Mr.
Woods was meantime rebuilding the
Interior of the big St. Francis; then
he helped to rebuild "the city that
was." Then they made him a Potlce
Commissioner and he helped to keep
good the. city that was built. Ous
White was made Chief of Police and
still holds the Job.
"A flno man Is tho chief," said Mr.
Woods. "A reformer? No, not ex
actly. He believes In and carries out
the policy of liberality with decency."
When "Jimmy" went to San Fran
cisco, they took blm out to the CHIT
House to show him the scato. "Have
you seen our seals?" wAs tho open
scsamo of conversation in those days
Instead of "I think wo'li have rain be
foro night." It never snows In San
Frnnclsco. Then they took him
"over the roof to the Jopanese Gar
dens. That trip cost tho new mana
ger many a bottlo of wine. Ho'll tell
you about It. Maybe he will.
Tho Cliff House was is one of tho
great show houses on tho ocean
front. Hut tho proximity of the Pie
sldlo, the big army reservation, has
Just closed down the cabaret, Mr.
Woods says, so that tho Cliff llou.-e,
with the whole Pacific Ocean rolling
at Its feet, Is as dry as Sahara.
Mr. Woods comes bark to his native
vlllago almost a stranger. When ha
left here, they had horse cars
hacks. He remembers the old gray
coated Hack Inspector, who stood a
the Ornnd Central Tormlnal, which
wa then a bunch of sheds with a
tin root .
"Some change," mused Mr. Woods
this morning, as ho regarded tho ter
minal zone through a window in tho
Helmont. of which ho is the Manairer
"Tho Belmont is tho llrst new hotel
In this section. When I left hero tho
Ornnd Union was the hotel of these
parts, and the Manhattan was a mod
ern hotel, up the street. The Grand
Central Terminal was built to nccom
modato the needs of tho city fifty
years later. Look nt It now ono of
tho most congested spots In New
York. It shows how this city has
been built Up.
"And the city will continue to grow.
I recognlre only a few oM landmarks.
Among Now York's landmarks of to
day are buildings which were, put up
thirty years ngn. This hotel Is one f
them. They will hnve to come ilown
ngnln nnd ho replaced by modern sky
scrapers. Park Avenue bus Improvtd
nniiilprftillt , wlillu .Mndlnin Avtntlt
has gone hack.
Mr, Woods real work will be the
management of the llelmunt nnd the
Murray Hill Hotels. The Murray Hill
Is to he replaced by the largest and
most magnltleent hostelry in the
world. It will be higher than the
Woolworth Building and have more
rooms than the Commodore, and be
ndoined, within nnd without, with
everything new nnd modern, with
every comfort, luxury nnd conveni
ence ever dreamed of In the construc
tion of a hotel.
