Shoos Auto Club Attorney
From Court
IlObert W. Ilenttv, nttorncv for the
Keystone Auntomobiie Club, was given
tlilrtv sreonds to get out of the court
of Justice of the Pence I. Martin
Terkcs, tho "fining squire, " nt Mill-,
bourne, today.
Mr. Ilentty endeavored to put up
an argument, but did not wait for the
r-Miirntlnn of tho thirty spcoikIh. which
tl judge was tolling ofT on his watch,
'llefore ordering the nttorney out of
the court, the squire read the riot net
concerning legal tnctics ijt speed case
hearings, nnd the Keystone Automobile
Club In general.
"Judge" Yerkcs .came to court today
with "blood in his eje." ready for
trouble if thp Kc) stone Club's attorney
resorted to his usual obstructionist tac
tics. The only case in which the Keystone
Club was Intel csted was that of Cliapln
L. llarr, prominent Philadelphia busi
ness man, whoxc home is in Spiiugfielu
Township. Mr. Unrr was cited for
two alleged violations of the speed laws,
one August 11, the other August 18.
In reply to a question from the Judge
ns to his speed, on the lirst date, Mr.
Ilarr said he d'd not know how fast he
was golug, but took it for granted ho
wns going slow, as he had known about
the speed trap at Millbourne.
"So jou were another of those fellows
who knew all about It before it was in
the newspapers," snapped the Judge.
"Well, I'll just tine jou 514.20P'
Troublo Starts
It wns when the Judge asked the de
fendant how he wished to plead on
the second charge that the trouble with
the attorno started. Previously tho
Judge had warned the eluli s legal rep
resentative that he was not to interfere.
Mr. Ilentty spoke up, however, when
Mr. IJuu- hesitated, and said: "Plead
not guilty."
Judge Verkes sharply otdercd the at
torney to keep quiet. "Vou come here
ns the representative of tho Kc stone
Automobile Cub," said the Judge, "the
representative of an organization which
boasts that it bienks up more speed
traps than any uthcr club in the coun
try. That's a reemd to be proud of,
I am sure. I remember jou appealed
the case of William Harrow, whom I
fined two weeks ago. If that mnn gets
olf on appeal he and you both ought
to be horsewhipped. It was a flagrant
case; I saw it myself.
"Lnst night I had a phone conversa
tion with Coroner Drewes, of Delaware
County. He told me that in the last
hlx weeks there have been ten auto.
mobile deaths in the county. lie com
mended the woik we nro doing here, nnd
said I might quote him emphatically
for it.
Attorney Wimcd Aside
"Vou and jour club nio interested in
breaking up speed traps, which are the
only protection against these constant
automobile killings. Vou mid jour club
members share in a heavy lesponslbilitj.
Tho Judge continued by declaring
thnt the nttltudo of the Keystone Au
tomobile Club was an "Invitation to
break the Inw." Here Mr. Ilentty
tried to interrupt. The Judge waved
him aside
"I'm through with 5011," said 'Squire
Verkes. "1 heichy disbar you from any
further practice in this court. Nor will
I let any jepresentatlvo of the Kej
stone Automobile Club practice here
who tries to resort to the obstructionist
methods you hne followed. Now get
out I glvo you exactly thirty seconds."
This encounter had so "het up" tho
Squire that ho llnlshed all tho lirst
notice cubes on his docket He imposed,
however, oiily one other line. This was

Mr. A'nn Itoden told her thnt the

thnt he must suffer for his own sake
nnd the sake of the community.
"He will plead guilty," shol said,
"and my onh fear is that he mfcy be

This is n nice jail nt Media, nnd 'l

Tho liie and pestilence, the mission
believes, will be a punishment of the

The belief is based on 11 prophecj
