Attorneys Statement
When Vhfn asked last night what Holmes

Mr Lester said
Holmes was in a far Western V stern State
when the first publicity pubHelt was given to
what Is called the cotton leap lea He at at
once returned to this thl city and I notified i
the District Attorney ttorne of his hl presence pre ence
and that he would be on hand If he
was wanted He stayed Here for some ome
time and then took an extensive trip > I

has never thought of leaving the coun ¬

that 1 would have him lire h lu re today toda but
I forgot at that time that today was 15

10 oclock but he should have been here I
before noon but for an unusual and un ¬
