According1 to Smith, the case v -too
weak to go before a jury and
we were tickled tQ death to get a
ilea -of guilty on the minor
harge."
Yet two separategrand juries
hought the evidence presented to
'hem quite sufficient to get Weiss
n the penitentiary charge.
Wayman added: "I am per
'ectly willing to have the Com
mittee of Fifteen investigate any
tate charges."
That isn't satisfactory. Way
nan said that he was not only
willing to have an investigation
made of the Charles Barrett
charges, but that he' himself
would investigate them.
But the people never heard
anything more abourthe charges
against Barrett.
Wayman's chief assistant
state's attorney is Thomas Mar
shall. Marshall also is Wayj
. Wayman's law partner.
Wayman himself, by the way,
has, quit state's attorneying-, al
though his term does not run out
until January 1. He can be found
now only in his private law of-j
ficeg.
Marshall is said just now to be
working on subornation of per
jury charge against Carl Wal
dron, attorney for the Committee
of Fifteen. Marshall does not
deny this.
The charges are said to be in
connection with an old case in
whfch WaWron had Adolpn Lieb
'man, a mortgage broker, arrest
ed for distributing ihdec'ent pic
tures, Waldron says that the state's
"orney's office has been trying
to "get something on him" ever
since he exposed the Charles Barrett-Louis
Weiss deal.
'TheuCommittee of Fifteen is
thoroughly aroused over "the
threat of charges, against Wal
dron. "If the state's attorney's office
is going to try any game like
that,',' said Clifford W. aBrnes to
day, "they will find that twos can
play at it
"I shall produce evidence of a
nature that perhaps will give Mr.
Wayman and some of his assist
ants a shock."
DEFENDANTS PLEASED
Indianapolis, Ind., NovT23.
The 45 defendants in the dyna
rfiiting conspiracy trial hereAven
gratified by the action of the A. F.
of L. convention at Rochester,
which urged the collection of a.
big fund for their defense and de
manded a "fair trial."
Ironworkers' union is said to, be
badly in need of funds. Raffles,
socials and dances have already
been given to raise defense
money. The expense is $1,500
day. r '
District Attorney Miller say's
he will call a score of otheTr wit
nesses before recalling Ortie E.
McManigal, fhd informer, to the
stand.
A horse having drunk as much
wafer as it desires can exist 25
days; without fdod or drink it can
live 17 days,; but when limited to
solid food without water it would
die in about five days.
