made upon Madero for food ;

It is stated by progressive repub-

Mr. Penrose, in the interest of
harmony, rradf an agreement in
writing, regarding the distribution
of committee places, which was en
tirely satisfactory to the progressives
and acceptable, as Mr. Penrose un

When this agreement reached Sen-

WIFE AND SON FREED
Man Who Fought Own Case in
Court Meets Verdict With
His Usual Smile.
-yward, NVls.. May 13. John F.
Dietz will spend the rest of his natural
life at hard labor in the penitentiary at
Waupun by the verdict today for mur
der in the first degree of Deputy Oscar
Harp in a fight at Cameron dam Oct. 3
Mrs. John Dietz and son, Leslie, wero
found not guilty.
KEEP OX SMII.IXG.
The smile with which the "old man"
always faced things that happened to
him, did not desert him. He smiled as
the judge read the verdict. He made
no demonstration. As the verdict was
read Mrs. Dietz glared at the jury.
Following the reading of the ver
dict the Judge informed Mrs. Dietz
and Leslie that they were discharged
from allegations of the pending com
plaint. The court then asked John
Dietz if he had anything to say.
A.M VAILS I.IMIIEU Till ST.
"Do you suppose," Dietz said, "I
haven't known that sooner or later
the trust, because it is big and I'm
little would kill me or put me out
of the way? I fought my fight and
defended my home " and family. I
have done nothing wrong and this
conviction does not alter the fact.
The tni!t has one creed, one law,
, one purpose. That Is rule or ruin.
They could not rule John Dietz. So
they tried for six yearB to ruin him.
This m-!iiwr-ft-4kfl as if they tiarc
got what they were after."
MOVES FOR XEW TRIAL.
Dietz then made a motion for a
new trial denouncing the lumber
trust in doing so. The court over
ruled the motion but gave Dietz in
days in which to file exceptions.
iiim;i: oxmikkei eair.
The case went to the jury at 4:10
o'clock, after Judge Held had given in
structions to find the defendants either
guilty or not guilty of murder in the
I first, degree. The three defendants all
said they thought the charge was fair.
Former Attorney General L. M. Stur
devant made the last half of the clos
ing address for the state. It was a bit
ter, sarcastic, contemptuous arraign
ment of a man against whom, he said,
society had to defend itself. He closed
by saying, however, he hoped the jury
would give Dietz as much of a chaniu
as they would any other man.
Dietz continually objected to Sturd

was always overruled on the ground
that a discussion of the evidence was
