"I think it was the front part of
the truck hat struck Hay," he said.
"I think it swung him around under
the rear wheels in "some way."

Edward Lissky qLr262f3 South
Trumbull avenue; a bookkeeper who
looks it, supported 'Cribben's pro
Tribune testimony.
John'Bielawa, 2433 South Troy
avenue, a. young boy, was called. But
he only saw what happened after Hay
was struck and his testimony was of
no use in fixing the blame.
George W. Mailing, 1655 Miller
avenue, a young and spectacled per
son, followed the boy.
I was standing on the northeast
re nor of Kedzie and Twenty-second
street," he said. "I saw the accident
Thp man walked into the side of the
car. The car was going slow "
A juror interrupted this flow of
Tribune testimony.
"Didn't you say you were stand
ing on the northeast corner of Ked
zie and Twenty-second?" he asked.
"Yes," said Mailing.
"Isn't that funny then?" said the
juror. "The auto truck must have
been between you and this man who
was killed, yet you saw right through
it and saw the man walk into the side
of the truck?"
Mallingturned red, but did; not an
swer. "Wasn't the auto truck between
you and the man killed?" persisted
the juror.
"Yes," said Mailing,
"I guess that's all from you," said
Deputy Coroner Webster, and Mal

Bowman, the chauffeur of the
Tribune's man killer, then took the
stand, himself.
He said that he went to work for
the Tribune last June, while the great I

He admitted that he had wr state
chauffeur's license.

ed papers to all the stands on Twelfth,
street and got to Twenty-second'
and Kedzie, where this accident oc
curred, at ten minutes after eight.
MT had" just delivered the papers to
the boy at the corner of Kedzie and
Twenty-second. I .started to cross
the street I was going slow. I had
the machine on first speed, and I had
just started, so I must have been go
ing slow, when this man walked into
the car.
"The accident was unavoidable. I '
could not have helped it. No one
"tjould have helped it. It was not my
fault. There was nothing I could do."
Hay did not survive the accident
long. Death relieved himfef his suf

pital, whither he was taken from Dr.
Jirka's office, two hours after he was
run down.

THEY COULD BE CRABBED
And nbw we have a shriek from
representative Filipinos to this effect:
"Japan! could grab us easily."
Uncle Sam grabbed those Filipinos
easily, but, later on, he's going to t "
have an awful time letting go of'
them. Once upon a time, there was a ' .
man who saw a bear beginning to'
climb a tree and he thought it would "
be a lot of fun to grab the bear's"'
paws which were showing, in a cute
way, around the trunk of the tree. "
So he grabbed hold of the paws, ,
which made the bear ripping mad.
It's a mighty good story, and the
man and bear are 'there yet.

Mr. Simmons. "Well, she got a reply
