COCKRAN HITS CONVICTION OF
MOONEY IN SAN FRANCISCO
New York, April 25. W. Bourke
Cockran, New York attorney who de
fended Thomas Mooney, charged
with San Francisco preparedness pa
rade bomb outrage, declared here
that Mooney's murder conviction
should undoubtedly be set aside and
the "whole conspiracy" against him
exposed through substantiation of
subornation of perjury charges
against F. C. Oxman, star govern
"'The arrest of Oxman," said
Cockran, "only carries out entire
contention of defense in this case
that the bomb outrage was perpe
trated by a maniac and that the in
vestigation developed into a conspir
acy to hang Mooney because of his
labor activities. If Oxman is con
victed there will be no -need for me
to return to California to defend
Mooney in a new trial. The whole
proceedings will be set aside by the
supreme court or by Gov. Stephens .
and Mooney will be liberated.
"Oxman's whole story was incred
ible. The outrage could not have
proceeded from a sane man because
it was not directed against any par
ticular person. They had been try
ing to get hold of Mooney for labor
activities. The bomb probe devel
oped into a conspiracy to get him.
We contended one man who had
spent much time trying to get Moon
ey suborned perjury. This was not
denied. Oxman's arrest proves it
We contended that an innocent man
was being railroaded to the scaffold
on false evidence. Our contention is
upheld. The conspiracy is exposed."
