SEMI-WEEKLY WHOLE NO. 3086 HICHERWACE SECRETARY SQUIRMS Cross - Examination by Kinney Puts Negoro in a Hole. Negoro has apologized. Ho says bo's sorry; ho Teally shouldn't havo dono it. "Mca culpa," he cries, "but I really didn't mean unjtking by it."" Ncgoro apologizes to tho community at largo and also to thoso of his who havo como to harm or loss through the notions of himself, his co-defendants, the Nippu Jiji or tho Higher "Wago Association. Ho apologizes to cut body for o cry thing. For two hours yesterday morning W. A. Kinney subjected Negoro to tho most tcrriblo cross examination that a uinn could deise. Ho laid him carefully on tho grill and turned him over and ocr, basting him to a deep, rich brown on every sldo. As a result, Ncgoro got rattled and admitted everything and apologized for everything. If ho had been nBked to; ho would have apologized for being alive.

Ho even tried to shift tho responsibility for somo of tho illegal acts upon his co defendants and tho Nippu Jiji, being forced into this by tho shrdwd questions of tho cross examiner. of Sheba in Background. Kinney proved himself an adopt at putting questions to tho witness which put the latter in a bad hole, no matter how ho answered or oven if ho did not answer at all. On direct examination the Llghtfoot succeeded in getting a number of matters before the jury in one way or another which had been ruled out of ewdenco by tho judge. On cross examination Kinney adopted tlio same tactics, and -with equal effect. Although all reference to tho stabbing of Sheba wis barred by tho order of the court, Kinney succeeded in keeping tho bleeding figure of tho editor of tho Shinpo just in tho background where tlio jury could feel its presence, even if it could not seo it. Sheba 's narao the was mentionod frequently by tho prosecuting is nttorney, and evidently for tho n purposo of keeping tho assault on tho man fresh in tho minds of tho jurors. of Time and again ho made the witness a squirm, hesitate and appear at fault by tho cinburnnBing questions ho put, ana even more by tho way ho worded them. not Ho left no ground for objoction by coiinsol for the dofense, yet all along ed (Continued nc ?e Eight.)
