Tells Goose Story.
This evidence is in the shape of a
sworn nflldivit to the effect that the
foreman of the jury, Albert Gr.iuer of
Sears. Roebuck and Co., told the jury
the "story about the goose that is re
lated in ' Col. Carter of Cnrtersville.' "
and that be told the defendant's coun
sel the day after the (loath verdict.
"You know all colored people are liars,
and they are artful liars." -
A second affidavit is sworn to by
Rodrick W. Mason, son of Congress
man "Billy" Mason, another member
of the death jury, asserting that, he
heard Grauer tell Attorney Wray
about telling the Col. Carter story in
the jury room. A third affidavit not
yet presented in court contains an ad
mission by Grauer that he told the
story to the jurors.
Attorney Wray1 contends that the
"story about Col. Carter of Carters
ville" was meant by the jury foreman
to prejudice the other members by in
citing their race prejudice.
Wjll Carry it Higher.
"I maintain," said Mr. Wray, "that
justice was intimidated by this story,
which is full of race prejudice, and
that it had a bearing on the verdict
itself. The United States Supreme
Court has held that such is the case.
There could not have been an impar
tial verdict rendered after Grauer told
the Jury that story, and the constitu
tion says that every defendant is en
titled to this. If we are not granted
a new trial I shall carry the case tn
the United State Supreme Court if
"Wray asserts five prominent busi
ness men, whose names he declines to
announce, have Interested themselves
in the case, and are willing to spend
a large sum to fight for the freedom
of Wallace. These men, he says, took
up the fight after Grauer bad signed
