OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 5. (Spec
ial.) Walter IE, McMillan, whose ex
tradition to Kansas City, Kan., on a
robbery charge. is being sought,
squeeaed a ray of hope from the crim
inal court of appeals' proceedings to
day when, with three attorneys he ap
peared to argue an application for a
writ of habeas corpus.
Alter offering the comment that the
governor's warrant Issued after the
requisition had been honored was
clearly defective, because not issued in
the name of the state of Oklahoma,
tin court permitted Attorneys Levy
and Jennings to admit evidence which
the former said would bear on the
iinestlon whether McMillan was a
fugitive from Justice.
McMillan's lawyers asked first for
a continuance, for the purpose of
runnlag down new evidence, but the
court was averse to delays and cen
sured "the petitioner for coming to the
appellate oourt after trying -the su
perior court of Oklahoma county
when he night have filed his applica
tion first In the higher tribunal.
The attack on the form of extradi
tion warrant was, it ts believed, the i
lirst made In the criminal court of j
appeals. The point in brief was that
tin warranl reads. "The governor efJ
the stute of Oklahoma to any sheriff,
etc." whereas, It should read, 1 n
stale of Oklahoma."
What liar Did.
A wealthy man in New York com
muted suicide when his doctor told
him lie hud appendicitis. A post mor
tem' revealed that he did not have it.
