He ri diculed the assertion of the plrosecu lion that the intent of the Iulletin was to incite Campbell to resistance against the council of which he was a member. and told of how CamIipbell had "pussy-looted" to the county at toruicy with the copy in question inl order to "stir up something against the Bulletin." 'rThe speaker (ailed attention to the fact that the trial had been brought in Lewis and Clark county where Smith was unknown and where the popular idea of the B3ulletin as a "sedition" sheet had been engendt cred Iby inflamumatory articles in the Indcependent "solely to secure a jury that was prejudiced."

WVlHEELEIl ADI)IIRESSES JURY. (Special to The Bulletin.) Helena, June 28.---- Charging the trials of Smnith, l)unn and Daly, of the Bulletin, for alleged sedition, be cause the editorial in which it is al leged the defense council was attack ed, wrere brought in Lewis and Clark county, instead of Silver Bow, where the paper is published, in or der to prevent a fair and impartial trial, Attorney 1. K. Wheeler, for the defense, in a closing argument to the jury today, pleaded with the members to overcome precolnceived prejudice against Smith in arriving at a verdict. 1Wheeler lAddresses Jury. Wheeler hogan his argument im ulediately when court colnvened at 10 o'clock this morning, and again re sumed his speech at the conclusion of the noon recess. It was five nin utes after 12 when the counsel, in the midst of a statement that it was lnot thlie governlmenlt or honest offi cials the Iulnletin attacked, but po litical crooks, that Judge Word in terrupted his speech by calling recess. Wheeler had just told the jury flatlyI that if on the evidence presentied. Smith was found guilty, it would be primla facie evidence of prejudice and bias in their minds. "Te..'tionloy introduced here has shown," said W\heoler,"' that tthe' policy cf the 13ulletin is unalterably opposed to l the crooks and gamlllblers in politics, the ni.l who are elected to public office and who debauch their offices, the iien who use their exalted offices to steal froim the pub lic coffers." It was at this point that Judge Word made his interrupl tion, the first lie had made during thle long address of the attorney. Hle or dered recess until 1:30 o'clock. Scathes Defense ('ouncil. Dluring the course of his address. Wheeler scathingly flayed "\Willie" Campiibell, Governor Stewart and some other mllelmbers of the defense council. He pointed out from facts in connection with the Smith trial. that the whole proceeding partook of the nature of a "frame-up." solely that the state council's position as a war body mlight be used to further an attempt of crooked politicians and ilalefactors, among corporate inter ests, in their efforts to suppress the hBulletin and hinder organized labor from fighting for its rights through its own paper. In opening, Wheeler told the jury that rumnors were rife in Helena when the trial began, that it was im possible for the defendant to obtain a fair and impartial trial, because of Ipreconceived prejudice, established in the minds of thepeople of Lewis and Clark county, through vicious and untruthful attacks on Smith and the Bulletin, in Will Campbell's in-' dependent. te said he realized it. was almost impossible for a personi ito continually read the Independent without unconsciously formlllin a ibias-d opinion against the defend ant, and called on the intelligence ofi the jurors to throw off that preju. dice in treatment of the case. Pointing to the fact that the case was based on a paper ret ived by" Campbell. a member of the defense council, Wheeler ridiculed the allega tion that the Bulletin editorial could by any stretch of imagination be e. peeteu to incite Campbell's resis tance to himself. He pointed to the fact that, according to evidence, it was Campbell himself who actually circulated and published the alleged seditious editorial broadcast in the county and over state. He demanded to know why Prosecutor Loble, it "patriotism and not persecution was his motive," did not prosecute Camp- c bell for sedition. Wheeler pointed to the editorial appearing in the Helena Itecord-Herald and almost r daily making vicious attacks on the honesty and integrity of Campbell, and suggested the reason Campbell never proceeded against the Record, was that they knew what they were writing about and could prove tile charges. \ ieeler cited the fact that his li i.tily and forefathers, who were in ile eouLitry bi Ol'e th.e rtC\olution, were called seditionllis against the British crown lor tlrowiug tea into Boston's harbor, that Paul Revere, Washington, Adanis, Jetfferson and others ol revoillOllnary tlIue were also terimed seditilousts in lBritish C history, and decliared S.mith's case I was a parallel. parallel.

Point ing to comlpalattsve aril' records of. Campbell, the coiplaining witness, and thlllll ,, thle c(C nllilll , W\lleeler s'athingly recailled, tiat \\uil. Caml bell wva:, 38 years old and was pub i.:iling patriotic stuff for his own, i,, isonal profit, Smith, 47 years old, already ita eteran of one war, was! o;ite'li lilg to enlist in the most. ag~gt''romus biranch of the army sen\-i Ito il tIlie last war. "Who is the real pat riot :" delllanlled the speaker. 'IhIe lict shows that while Campbell and his ilk were securing more dol lars ini an effort to put the Bulletin out of business, Smith was trying to enlist." Hurt (ampbell's Feelings. Quoting the language of the edi torial complained of, which referred to "salue sliily political gang which dominates tile council of defense," I WXheeler asked who dominates the. council, and showed from tile evi dence, that the prosecution broughti about was partly because the criti-' cism had hurt Campbell's feelings lpersonmally, and because Campbell and his gang of corruptionista wanted to suppress the Bulletin. Rieferring to the "kangaroo" nmethods, adopted by the defense council at the hearing of Smith, Dunn and Daly last year, the speak er declared "Wmen like Campbell, Sid ney Logan and the governor of this state should be ashamed of them selves at putting a mnan like Smith on the stand and questioning himn called, plresumably, to discuss an under false pretenses." WVheler showed the hearing was order of Bulletin for paper supplies, but after it had assembled, Smith and his companions were placed on trial for an alleged offense against council, and trickily questioned by clever lawyers in an illegal attempt to secure admissions on which to base the sedition charges.
