Paris, July 23. Still playing upon
the strings of political discord, the
fourth session of the trial of Mme.
Joseph Caillaux for the murder of
'Gaston Calmette opened today with
reports of an impending sensation.
Despite the statement of Prosecutor
Herbaux yesterday that documents
reflecting on the honor of Caillaux
do not exist, reports were circulated
today that an employe of Le Figaro
would appear at the trial and read
a document charging that the former
prime minister planned to betray
Prance to Germany.
At the same time reports were cir
culated that Maitre Labori may soon
introduce a witness, a physician, who
is prepared to declare Calmette did
not die as a direct result of the
wounds inflicted by Mme. Caillaux,
but because of the negligence of phy
sicians who attended him. With the
"brainstorm" defense which is being
built up by the noted attorney, the
evidence of the physician promises to
stir all Paris.
Thehysician who may be called
has declared that Calmette's wounds
were not fatal, that had the most ele
mentary precautions been taken his
life might have been saved and that
he would have been discharged from
the hospital within ten days or two
