It is known that District Attor

ha not yet been answered. Let
him explain why?
In that 012,000 libel "soot" now
pending against the Kicker they
have filed a motion to strike out
everything prior to January 1.
1911, when John McWIlliams was
installed as prosecuting attorney
They say he had nothing to do
with what happened prior to that
In other words, they want to
strike out the letter containing
the Kraft exposures printed else
where. They don't want to meet
THAT. In that letter written 16
months ago, 1 say : "You may say
that this occured before you en
tered office. Y'ou didn't say that
about the poor devils that were
sent 'over the road.' Some of
those were sent up for criinesvcom
mltted last year.''
Some of the most flagrant graft
refered to in that letter occured
only a few months before Mr. Mc
Williams was installed as the de
fender and protector of the peo

through. They don't want mo to
