Counsel for the prisoners said two of

Moses Zimmermann, 136 Forsyth

Immigration inspectors examined the
prisoners at Police Headquarters be
! fore the arraignment. It had been
stated that the men were being held

?a defining criminal anarchy holds that
any one who associates with criminal
anarchists or goes to their meeting
place is guilty.

When the case of Irving Potash,

Caught at River Bank

I said they were present, Hubbard's
party caught the man they were chas?
ing, after he had fired at them several
times, on the hanks ?if tho Skookum
chuck River, a small stream which
runs through the town. Hubbard and
the man grappled, they said, and the

T. C. Rogers, Mayor of Contralla;
A. C. Hughes, chief of police, and
other citizens addressed the crowd in
front of the jail to-night, asking the
citizens no; to attempt to lynch the
prisoners.
Early to-night a meeting to discuss
the situation was held at a local club
and soon afterward the city's electric
lights failed, it was in the darkness
that one man was removed from the
I Jail.
The best available account said the
'? man was. placed in an automobile,
i Hanked by six other cars filled with
i men, and hurried into a wood near the
'. town. This man, reports said later,
was hanged to a bridge.
That the bullets were intended for
I soldiers was shown by the fact that
i all the killed and injured were in the
military section of the parade.
Warren Grimm had been an idol of
che town even before the war, as he was
a star football player at the Univer?
