"I have received acceptances from both Mrs. Pankhurst and Mr. Gom pers," Mrs. Robins told a delegation of local suffragists, waiting the ar rival of Mrs. Pankhurst at the Dear born street station.

Judge Baker then took the case under advisement and announced that he would return a decision about January 1. Krum in his argument for the con victed labor men rested on two con tentions: ' First That no proof had been af forded at the trial in Indianapolis to show that the defendants had con spired to carry dynamite on passen ger trains in violation of the federal statute. Second That the conviction of the defendants on two counts of con spiracy and five counts of "aiding and abettiflg- to conspire" means the conviction of each man three times for the same offense, in direct viola tion of the federal constitution, which provides that no man may be twice convicted or his life and liberty twice jeopardized for the same offense. o o LATEST MOVE IS BIG VICTORY FOR THE MINERS UNION Trinidad, Col., Nov. 1.
