IN THE JURY'S HANDS.
Waiting for tbo Verdict in the Solon
SPEECHES MADE III THE COUNSEL.
Judge Jlagle's Chanre Is FavoraMe to
llnndorf and Fall.
TIIE JUKOKS WANT ALL THE EVIDENCE
Hie Solon case went to the jury yesterday
afternoon at 3:30 o'clock, and the verdict
will not be known nntil this morning at
9:30. The whole of yesterday was taken np
with the addresses of counsel and charge of
Mr. Patterson spoke first, devotimj nearly
liis entire speech to the history of the or
der. He taid Godfrey was the man who
had built up the organization, spending a
great deal of bis time and money, and that
now he stands charged with crimes against
it. It was JIundorf who first reported the
apparent shortage to Ball, and the latter
took steps to I.ave the charges investigated.
Yet they all stand charged with conspiring
to ruin the order they worked so hard to
maintain. Mr. Patterson said the prose
cutor had participated in the paying of
warrants over the counter, a thing he had
complained so much about The speaker
urged that the defendants should be acquit
ted and the costs put on the prosecutor,
whom he saia had falsely brought the
Mr. Kobb followed, saying that the whole
case is a persecution. "What has bothered
rue," said he, "is where is JJeatty wnere
is the man who accused Godfrey ot being
14.000 short? AVhere Is the man who
seems to be behind the case? He is the
man who kept the books where the alleged
shortage was found.
Not Called to Testify.
"He was not put on the stand to explain
this matter, but he was cleverly suppresed
in this case. We hare shown that at the
time Godfrey was charged with being 1,353
eliort, he was really 540 long and I ask that
the defendants be acauitted."
Mr. Porter then began his address which
was not finished until the afternoon
cession. Ho said: "We have shown vou
that between September 25 and October 23,
Godfrev drpoited to the credit of Solons
over 512,000 more than was received bv the
order from all sources. He raised this to
cover his shortage. He had used the funds
o! the order, and to cover this shortage he
cot monev from some source aud deposited
it, but that still left him $1,300 short and
how was that made up Godfrey
vas suspended October 3, but he
kept the kevs ot the cash drawer.
Of this amount SS00 was Godfrey's
check on his private account. I believe
John SI. Ball was the tool of God rey and
Mundorf. Why didn't Godfrey show the
experts who examined his books this money
lie claimed to have in the cash drawer? Be
cause it wasn't there. AH this talk about
there beinz H.000 or 55,000 in the drawer
is nonsense, and you or I don't believe
Judge Slagie then charged the jury. His
address was considered a very lair and im
partial one so lar as Godfrey is concerned,
but he verv plainly indicate! that he did
rot think Mundorf or Ball should be con
victed. He ciled the law bearing on em
b'zzlement and conspiracy, and reviewed
the evidence in the present case.
Godfrej's Dnty to tlio Experts.
In speakinc of the 56,000 in warrants that
ere said to have been drawn alter Septem
ber 25, Judge Slale thought this could not
affect the condition of the treasury prior to
that date, and should not be so considered.
He said Godfrev should have shown the ex
perts whatever money he had on hand and
assisted them in any way possible to arrive
st a correct audit, and tiis failure to do so
might be reasonable grounds for bringing
When the jurv retired thev asked for all
the checks and warrants in the case, to
gether with the report ot the experts and
the bank book. There was a disposition at
first not to let these go to the jury room, but
thev were finally given to the jury.
The Court waited until after 4 o'clock,
but there was no indication that a verdict
would be arrired at last night, when an ad
journment was taken until this morning.
