ers, exstate senator from San Francis
co, made a complete confession today
on the witness stand of the court loom
where the trial of E. J. Emmons, one
of the quartet of the state senate in
dicted by the grand jury was iv prog
ress. , From the moment of his entry
into the court room until the time
that he left it, pale and prespiring,
three hours later, Bunkers was the
central figuie in one of the most dra
matic exposures in criminal trials of
this state. He left nothing untold,
and in his eagerness to unburden him
self he forestalled the objections of the
defense with statements relating to the
motives and aotions of the four dis
graced legislators. Much of this wae
stricken from the testimony.
He detailed the plan of campaign,
which he says was one whereby the
building and loan associations of the
state were to be "held up" and com
pelled to pay for protection.
He told of .receiving money, stating
that Joseph Johnson had dropped his
roll of $350 as he stood in the street
just as Jordan said he did, and said
that Emmons had received his share
hut two minutes before. Lastly he
told of the tenor aud fright that fol-
I lowed the expose in the senate; of ha-
S sty conferences in Emmons' rooms
lover the disposal of the marked bills
I and of the suggestions that were made
j to clear themselves cf guilt.
Bunk'rs was still on the stand when
the court adjouned tor the day.
Frank Johnson and wife spent part
of the day in Wenatchee, leaving this
alternoon for their home in Spokane.
