A pitiful scene was enacted in po
lice court this morning, when Bender's
mother bude him farewell. "Don't you
worry. Silas." she sobbed, lis she
clasped he;- son to tier breast. "I know
von are innocent, and the truth will be
made known." Then, as her boy was
led away by an officer, Mrs. Bender
launched into a tirade'against the po
ll''. "I know my boy is Innocent."
, she fairly screamed. "I can prove
; whre he was when the robbery was
otnmitted. When a man once falls
from grace, do the police help hin!?
No. you drag him down deeper. Just
because my boy has done wrong in
the past, you won't give him a chance
: to make an honest living. You hound
him to death, and every time a crime
is committed, you try to fasten the
guilt on him."
