Pope, local attorney, took the stand in his own behalf today at his trial on a charge of murder in the first degree. The defense announced it had no other witnesses, and began its argu ment on a motion for an instructed verdict in favor of the defendant. The argument had not been concluded when the case went over until to morrow. The state . rested early in the afternoon's session. Pope . was on the stand less than an hour. He denied unequivocally that he had any knowledge of the impend ing robbery of the Palace theatre the night of September 4 by Frank Rawlings, who shot and killed George H. Hickman, manager of the play house. Pope admitted he had very probably been at certain places de scribed by the state's witnesses. ' He denied that he had told Erwin and Johnny Novinzky, state witnesses, when he borrowed their car on the night of the killing, that he and Rai lings were going to "stick up" the theatre. . : Victim of Cireumstancest ine story was to the ettect that he was a victim of circumstances. He had defended Rawlings and W. C. Melton at their trial on a grand larceny charge. Melton was arrested in con nection with the present case, but ischarged after a grand jury inves tigation and so far as known left the ity immediately. Neither Rawlings nor Melton had ever paid him any thing because of their lack of money, Pope said. On the night of the kill ing Rawlings told him that he had learned that Melton had received some money from his sister. He ask cd that Pope come with him and he would make Melton pay Pope some thing for the two of them. Rawlings had the impression that Melton ac. quiring some money had gone "under cover." Rawlings suggested they get Novinzky's automobile as he did not know where Melton was. Pope obtained the use of the car and they drove to a down town pool room, the location of which is one block behind the theatre and one block west. Raw lings went in "the search of Melton and returned in a few minutes say ing he lived up the street about a block. They then drove to a point a little more than a block to the rear of the theatre. There Rawlings again sought to find Melton while Pope waited. He waited a considerable time he said, probably three quarters of an hour, getting out of the car fre quently as he became impatient for Rawlings to return. Finally he drove baek to the pool room in an effort to MAYOR MART GOING AFTER BAD ELEMISJ JAX Directs " Police to Cen ter Its Efforts to Stop Gambling ' TO PROBE ALL RUMORS Council Gives Him Full Authority Row In Tampa Too State Reformatory of Michigan Burns; Soldiers on Guard (By Aanocluted Press) Ionia, Mich., Oct. 5.

A rear end collision of two suburban trains in the half mile tunnel leading to the St. NazairQ railway station tonight lead to terri fying scenes and the death of many persons bound on their homeward journey from Paris. The wrecked cars burst into flames and the disas ter was made all the more terrible by the explosion of a gas reservoir. At a late hour tonight sixteen bodies had been recovered. Twenty persons are known to have been seriously injured and sixty others slightly injured. This, however, given no idea of the extent of the disaster because the firemen and others en gaged in the work of rescue have been unable to get any distance with in the tunnel owing to the gas fumes. Flames Spread .Rapidly The fire spread with great rapidi ty and for a time cries of distress and the moans of the dying were heard on all sides but these finally were silenced though the crackling of th eblazing wooden coaches could still be heard. The firemen were not prepared for the barrage of poisonous fumes which assailed them as they reached the scene. Finally they succeeded in play ing four streams on the last coaces at the St. Nazaire end of the tunnell but these were empty and not burn ing while seventeen coaches in the center of the tunnell far away from the firemen's efforts were burning fiercely. At no time could they get closer than 500 feet from the infprnn. Nevertheless every now and then a passenger with blackened face would come straggling out begging the helpless firemen, police and soldiers to enter the tunnell and save those dying within.
