SAM McGOYVAN IS
Wiiis Verdict of "Not Guilty" by Able
Defense of a Foreigner Accused of
Murder at Philadelphia Navy lord.
The following taken from the Phil
adelphia Inquirer of Sept. 14 will be
of interest to the many frleuds of
Pay Inspector Sam McGowan:
In concluding session of a court
martial, which for tho past eight days
has been trying Private John J.
Walcyzkowskl for the death on July
20, at League Island, of Private Al
bert Smith, both of the United States
Marine Corps, it was revealed yester
day that friends of the dead man at
tempted to lynch the accused mur
After Smith, declared to have been
the aggressor in a fight, had fallen to
the ground at the navy yard, with a
fractured skull and had died before he
could he treated by surgeons, friends
of the marine .according to the testi
mony, hurried the Pole toward a build
ing, shouting that they Intended to
run a noose around his neck and throw
him from a window.
Officers hearing the commotion rais
ed by the men, rushed to them and
quickly took into custody the marine,
while the guard at the Broad street
gate turned out In double quick or
der and dispelled the agitated soldiers.
Sentiment Han High.
Since the death of Smith sentiment
among the men had been running
high against the defendant. However,
in presenting the case to tho Board
of Court Martini, Pay Director Sam
uel McGowan, of the local naval pay
office, brought out expert testimony
that Smith had an abnormally form
ed skull. It was only a sixteenth of
an inch thick. Witnesses declared that
Walcyzkowskl, who was defending
himself from the aggressive tactics of
Smith, had given mo latter a slight
push. Smith lost his balance and fell
to the ground, the fall splitting the
thin bone of the Lkull.
The court martial, asserted at the
navy yard to have been one of the
most hotly contested in the country
for years, aroused wide-spread Inter
est. Prominent Poles throughout the
country, learning of the plight of
Walcyzkowskl through a visit the bit
ter's father had paid to tho yard,
made earnest efforts to have him
freed of the charges.
The defendant's father, an invalid,
unable to work, had come to this city
to ask his son to leave the Marino
Corps and return to Chicago, where
he could provide and care for his par
ents and several sisters and brothers.
Arriving at the yard, the elder Wal
cyzkowskl learned his son was under
an indictment for murder.
Pay Director McGowan, declared
one of the best-informed authorities
upon military law In any branch of
the government service, volunteered
to defend the Pole. Officers of both
the navy and army were anxious for
him to give his services, for it has
been realized that many Poles have
been enlisting recently in both branch
es and were proving to be efficient
sailors and soldiers.
Paper Wad Doflcctcd.
So able was the defense of Director
McGowan that the sentiment against
Walcyzkowskl was shifted, when it
was testified that the Pole had thrown
a paper wad at another marine, but
that it had deviated from Its source
and landed lightly upon Smiths' face.
The latter, angered, shouted that he
i would permit no foreigner to strike
him. Ho rushed at tho Polo and the
altter gave him a shove, causing the
antagonistic marine to fall.
"Walcyzkowskl," said Director Mc
Qowan, "following the characteristics
of his race is of a quiet disposition.
He meant no harm. The men were
seated about tho lawn after evening
mess, Joking and talking. The missile
wus thrown only In a Joke and Smith,
a man with an abnormal skull, lost
his temper and fractured his skull,
when the defendant legally resisted an
attack upon his person."

Co-operate! What a world of mean
ing there in in a word? To illustrate:
Suppose we had (and it should be by
all means a reality Instead of sup
position) a creamery here at Midden.
Think how many people would be
benellted. Can't you let your imagi
nation follow me as we go on the
nlilk route some beautiful autumn
morning with the driver? " Out the
lane" to use the Madden venacular
we'd go. Of course common sense
teaches, wo could not stop at every
farm house but where wo could not
go, at the cross road there would be
a kind of depot arangement made
where the milk could be collected. Our
first, stop would be at Ltnwood Mar
lins (and I wish to ask who ever
sow Llnwood without a sleek cow or
two?) If we had a creamery how
many more he would keep! Not only
would we collect milk from Farmer
Martin but there would be the Fin
ley boys ( a host in themselves), pos
sibly all would have equal quarters
(save G. H? ight have a little more)
just below Mr. L. Culbertson's we'd
come to another by road and there
would be another crowd of energetic
farmer folks to greet us with their
full quota of milk, and so all along
the way. While of course we could
not go to Ekom, yet the word would
have gone first that the milk man
was coining and someone, 1 suspect
Harrison Pinson would see to it that
the milk of his neighborhood would
he waiting for us. Down through the
Mt. Pleasant neighborhood and back
the main road we come gathering up
milk cans and leaving behind us the
"coin of the realm". Suppose this
was done every day In the year, giv
ing into the hands of farmers and tho
farmer's wife a little money, a regu
lar Income. Don't you see and know
that when the fall eame with Its cot
ton and cotton seed that there would
be no need of printers wasting ink and
editors writing editorials and farm
ers' unions passing resolutions all
crying "Hold Cotton." Cotton can
never be successfully marketed for
its full value till farmers realize the
need of learning to step together to
diversify crops, not depending all to
gether on cotton. Farmers co-oper
ate! The ground sill of that word is
unselfishness. Bring it down to its
last analysis it means "Dear ye one
A letter from California (Caliexco
near the Mexican line) lies before me
wit Ii quite a bit of informal ion. ' The
ranchers here are quite blue over the
price of cotton. I have often wondered
where their profit In raising cotton
came In. While it is true they have
no fertilizers to buy yet they must
pay for water and the high labor. They
pay their wages hands $05.00 per
month and board and from $1.00 to
$1.50 per 100 for picking."
Truly I guess the low price of cot
