The contention of .Mr. Folder's at
torneys that the requisition papers
were inadequate because they lacked
affidavits to indicate that any per

When Govornoi Brown told .Mr. Fol

the latter replied that lie "probably
would be going to South Carolina very

his innocence of any attempt to bribe
and asserted that the warrant was
merely a subterfuge on the part of
