WVlHEELEIl ADI)IIRESSES JURY.
(Special to The Bulletin.)
Helena, June 28.---- Charging the
trials of Smnith, l)unn and Daly, of
the Bulletin, for alleged sedition, be
cause the editorial in which it is al
leged the defense council was attack
ed, wrere brought in Lewis and
Clark county, instead of Silver Bow,
where the paper is published, in or
der to prevent a fair and impartial
trial, Attorney 1. K. Wheeler, for
the defense, in a closing argument
to the jury today, pleaded with the
members to overcome precolnceived
prejudice against Smith in arriving
at a verdict.
1Wheeler lAddresses Jury.
Wheeler hogan his argument im
ulediately when court colnvened at 10
o'clock this morning, and again re
sumed his speech at the conclusion
of the noon recess. It was five nin
utes after 12 when the counsel, in
the midst of a statement that it was
lnot thlie governlmenlt or honest offi
cials the Iulnletin attacked, but po
litical crooks, that Judge Word in
terrupted his speech by calling recess.
Wheeler had just told the jury flatlyI
that if on the evidence presentied.
Smith was found guilty, it would be
primla facie evidence of prejudice
and bias in their minds.
"Te..'tionloy introduced here has
shown," said W\heoler,"' that tthe'
policy cf the 13ulletin is unalterably
opposed to l the crooks and gamlllblers
in politics, the ni.l who are elected
to public office and who debauch
their offices, the iien who use their
exalted offices to steal froim the pub
lic coffers." It was at this point
that Judge Word made his interrupl
tion, the first lie had made during thle
long address of the attorney. Hle or
dered recess until 1:30 o'clock.
Scathes Defense ('ouncil.
Dluring the course of his address.
Wheeler scathingly flayed "\Willie"
Campiibell, Governor Stewart and
some other mllelmbers of the defense
council. He pointed out from facts
in connection with the Smith trial.
that the whole proceeding partook of
the nature of a "frame-up." solely
that the state council's position as a
war body mlight be used to further
an attempt of crooked politicians and
ilalefactors, among corporate inter
ests, in their efforts to suppress the
hBulletin and hinder organized labor
from fighting for its rights through
its own paper.
In opening, Wheeler told the jury
that rumnors were rife in Helena
when the trial began, that it was im
possible for the defendant to obtain
a fair and impartial trial, because of
Ipreconceived prejudice, established
in the minds of thepeople of Lewis
and Clark county, through vicious
and untruthful attacks on Smith and
the Bulletin, in Will Campbell's in-'
dependent. te said he realized it.
was almost impossible for a personi
ito continually read the Independent
without unconsciously formlllin a
ibias-d opinion against the defend
ant, and called on the intelligence ofi
the jurors to throw off that preju.
dice in treatment of the case.
Pointing to the fact that the case
was based on a paper ret ived by"
Campbell. a member of the defense
council, Wheeler ridiculed the allega
tion that the Bulletin editorial could
by any stretch of imagination be e.
peeteu to incite Campbell's resis
tance to himself. He pointed to the
fact that, according to evidence, it
was Campbell himself who actually
circulated and published the alleged
seditious editorial broadcast in the
county and over state. He demanded
to know why Prosecutor Loble, it
"patriotism and not persecution was
his motive," did not prosecute Camp- c
bell for sedition. Wheeler pointed
to the editorial appearing in the
Helena Itecord-Herald and almost r
daily making vicious attacks on the
honesty and integrity of Campbell,
and suggested the reason Campbell
never proceeded against the Record,
was that they knew what they were
writing about and could prove tile
\ ieeler cited the fact that his
li i.tily and forefathers, who were in
ile eouLitry bi Ol'e th.e rtC\olution,
were called seditionllis against the
British crown lor tlrowiug tea into
Boston's harbor, that Paul Revere,
Washington, Adanis, Jetfferson and
others ol revoillOllnary tlIue were

history, and decliared S.mith's case I
was a parallel.

Hurt (ampbell's Feelings.
Quoting the language of the edi
torial complained of, which referred
to "salue sliily political gang which
dominates tile council of defense," I
WXheeler asked who dominates the.
council, and showed from tile evi
dence, that the prosecution broughti
about was partly because the criti-'
cism had hurt Campbell's feelings
lpersonmally, and because Campbell
and his gang of corruptionista
wanted to suppress the Bulletin.
Rieferring to the "kangaroo"
nmethods, adopted by the defense
council at the hearing of Smith,
Dunn and Daly last year, the speak
er declared "Wmen like Campbell, Sid
ney Logan and the governor of this
state should be ashamed of them
selves at putting a mnan like Smith
on the stand and questioning himn
called, plresumably, to discuss an
under false pretenses."
WVheler showed the hearing was
order of Bulletin for paper supplies,
but after it had assembled, Smith
and his companions were placed on
trial for an alleged offense against
council, and trickily questioned by
clever lawyers in an illegal attempt
to secure admissions on which to
base the sedition charges.
