"GRAFT" INDICTMENTS
DECLARED TO
BEJVOID
Louis Glass and Other Frisco
Bribers May Escape
Charges at
Present.
QUESTION OF GRAND
JURY'S LEGALITY
It Was Continued After Another
Panel Had Been Secured, and
May Have Been Illegal.
Supreme Court to
Decide.
San Francisco, July 27. Whether
or not indictments returned by the
present grand Jury are valid, and
whether that body had any legal ex
istence since February, 1907, were
seriously questioned In a decision
handed down yesterday by Judge Car
roll Cook of the superior court. The
supreme court will be asked to de
cide the matter.
Attorneys for the men Indicted de
murred to the Indictments, arguing
that, as the present grand Jury was
continued In service after a new
panel had been drawn and filed, the
term of Bervice of the old body had
expired.
Some of those Indicted, who will be
set free by a favorable decision from
the supreme court, are: A. K. Det
weiler, T. V. Halsey, Louis Glass, Pat
rick Calhoun, Wm. K. Abbott, Thorn
wall Mullaly, Tirey L. Ford, G. H.
Ubsen, W. I. Brobeck, Joseph E.
Green, S. J. Desabla, F. G. Drum,
John Martin.
Docs Not Affect Sclimitz.
Should the supreme court decide
that the grand jury which returned
these indictments Is illegal, the de
cision would not affect the case of
Mayor Schmitz, whose indictment
was returned at a time when the
Jury's legality Is undoubted. Nor
would It affect the case of any other
person whose case fcad .been tried
without abjection having been made
to the Jury's legality. If a prisoner
waives any right, such as his right
to object to a Jury's 'legality, he can
not after the case has been tried,
bring up that right, according to
Judge Cook.
The question as to the legality of
the grand Jury will be submitted to
the supreme court Immediately, and
it will be decided within a short tim'e.
In the meantime, the court will grant
continuances In all cases which
might.be affected by the decision.
Cook's Decision.
Attorneys in the Glass case recent
ly submitted a motion to Judge Car
roll Cook, as to the legality of the
grand Jury which Indicted Louis
Glass and others In the telephone
bribery cases, alleging that the Jury
is not legal because it has been held
in session after another grand jury
had been drawn and empannelled,
and that the law does not contem
plate such a case as two grand Juries
in the same county at the same time.
Judge Cook took the matter un
der advisement, and this morning
gave a decision to the effect that the
contention of the defense is mater
ial. He requested that the matter
be submitted to the supreme court
and nttorneys are now at work on
the necessary papers to secure a
final decision.

THREE KILLED IN
NAPTHA EXPLOSION
Kau Claire, Mich.. July 27. Three
lives were lost by the explosion of a
ear of impth.i in a 1Mb Four train
near here yesterday. The car left
the truck on a curve and immediately
burst into flames. The men killed
were stealing u ride, one body was
completely consumed.
The cause of the car leaving the
track is unknown but It is generally
believed to have been due to spread
ing rails. The trainmen were not
injured seriously though the conduc
tor and two brakemen, who were on
top of the train at the time of the ex
plosion, were Mown to the ground.
The force of the shock stopped the
rear part of the train and the dam
age to the rolling stock was not
heavy.
The roadbed was entirely destroyed
in the neighborhood of the explosion
deep holes being blown in the ground
and no trace of the ear Is li ft except
a few warped and burned pieces of
Iron.
The three tramps, who were killed,
had been warned away from the car
at the station east of the point where
th- explosion occurred. A trainman
told them of the dangerous nature of
th.- car and supposed that the took
the warning until he saw the bodies.

STABBER IS PROBABLY

EPILEPSY
Berlin Police Do Not Believe
Crimes Are Due to
Viciousness.
CRIMINAL MAY NOT
RECOLLECT ACTIONS
Berlin, July 27. The criminal,
who yesterday stabbed five little girls
on the- streets of Berlin, Is still at
large. The theory that finds the
greatest favor among the people Is
that the man Is an epleptlc, who
probably has recovered his normal
condition and Is now without any
recollection of what he did.
In all parts of the city children are
being kept within doors. All police
men, between seven and eight thou
sand, are doing patrol Bervice today.
Five or six suspects, arrested dur
ing the night, were released today.
Three of the children who were
stabbed are dead, one of them having
been found dead. The wounds were
Identical. A sharp edged knife or
scissors blade had been used to slash
open their abdomens. Two others
were treated in like manner, but
may recover.
one of the suspects arrested last
night answered the description of a
man who had given little girls candy
during the day and he was nearly
mobbed before the police could get
him to Jail.
Today comparative quiet reigns but
there is a feeling of uneasiness and
any one making advances of any
kind toward children would probably
meet with violence at the hands of
the Infuriated parents.
The only clue the police have Is a
fharp scissors' blade which was left
sticking in a note on a park seat. The
note stated that the writer had kill
ed three children.
It is possible that the police may
find the criminal if the epileptic
theory Is correct, as they can easily
obtain a list of people subject to that
disease, and the real criminal is
undoubtedly carrying some evidence
of his work in the way of blood on
his clothing.

it was one consensus or opinion that
the court leaned to the defense.
Judge Wood completed his charge
at 10:59 o'clock. The court room
was cleared at 11 and at 11:04 the
Jury retired, A recess until 2 p. m.
was then taken.
Won't Consider Adams.
Judge Wood at the outset thanked
the Jurors for "the attentive manner"
In which they performed their duly.
He instructed the Jury not to con
sider evidence bearing on the con
nection of Steve Adams with the
crimes committed in northern Idaho,
and the evidence Introduced by the
defense regarding th deportations iu
Colorado, and the- employment of
finserton detectives oy the mni
owners, on the ground that no proper
connection wiln th case on trial had
been , made In either case.
Ileyond I Seasonable Doubt.
After quoting and explaining the In
dictment on which Haywood waa ar
retted, Judge Wood said:
"The court instructs the Jury that
under the law, no Jury should con
vict a citizen of any crime simply be
cause there is a strong reason to be
lieve that he Is guilty, but before the
Jury can lawfully convict, they must
be convinced of the defendant's guilt
beyond all reasonable doubt. If it
Is possible for you to reconcile the
facts In this case on any reasonable
theory consistent with Innocence of
tne derendant, It Is your duty to do
so and find the defendant not guilty."
IMdciuv i:cludcd.
After Instructing the Jury that the
proof of other crimes than the mur
der of Governor Steunenberg had
been admitted only for the purpose
of showing conspiracy to accomplish
certain objects, Judge Wood con
tinued: "It makes no difference, however,
In this case what crimes have been
committed In Colorado, in Coeur
D Alenes or elsew here, or who Is re
sponsible for the commission of such
crimes, If any there be. but the de
fendant cannot be convicted unless
the state has established beyond a
reasonable doubt that he is guilty of
the felonious killing of Frank Steun
enberg."
Nature of t'onsnlraov.
Judge Wood explained the nature
or the proofs necessary to establish
the charge of conspiracy and said:
"It Is not essential to the forma
tion- of a conspiracy that there
should be a formal agreement be
tween the parties to do the act charg
ed. It Is suflicient If the minds of
the parties meet understanding so
as to bring about an intelligent and
deliberate agreement to do such acts,
or commit the crimes charged, al
though the agreement be not mani
fested by any formal words."
"If you believe, in this case, from
the evidence beyond a reasonable
doubt that the defendant aided, abet
ted, advised and encouraged the kill
ing of Frank Steunenberg, then the
defendant is guilty, and It would be
immaterial whether he was actually
present at the tlmo of the killing or
not."
Testimony of Ai-compllco.
"The la,w views with distrust the
testimony of an accomplice on ac
count of the motive he may have for
laying the responsibility for his crime
upon another, when, by so doing, he
may secure Immunity for his own
participation in the crime charged.
For this reason the law exacts cor
roboration, and although the Jury
may believe that the testimony of
the accomplice Is true, Btill the Jury
could not convict the defendant on
such testimony unless they further
find that the testimony of the accom
plice Is corroborated by other and
in de pen den t evidence."

It seems that Lopes had been ac

the lad had discovered the theft and
was about to inform his uncle. Tha
boy was the only one who knew
about the theft. Meeting Padilla at

For the 'ast eight months the sher

since the disappearance of Lopes,
false clues have been followed. Word
has been received from different

It was either discovered that an In

that the man disappeared before he
