Senator Watson of Georgia today
handed Senator Brandegee of 0on
necticut, chairman of the comittee
investigating "the Watson charges."
This Is the third different killing of
one of his men that is charged against
Ople. who was formerly a majo In
command of a battalion of the 118th
infantry. Ople has already denied
the other two charges.
The third is made by Lemuel O.
Smith, of Marion, Va., a former ser
geant of Company M, of Opie's bat
talion. Smith said, he was decorated
by the French and the American
"I was commanding a detail com
posed of Privates 'Ted Enison, Lee
ColUns and William Askew bringing In
four prisoners when we heard a shot
in a dugout." wrote Smith.
'"We entered and found William
Woolwine. Ople's orderly, lying dead.
The room was still full of smoke of the
gunan Ople was looking at the body.
Sto u he had killed Woolwine and
ordered us to carry the body out."
Watson demanded today, that Smith
and the three other privates whom he,
named be summoned as witnessees.
Watson further handed to Brande
gee a letter from John S. Cannon. an
attorney and a former officer at the
A. E. F., whose address is 301 Lloyd
(or Gloyd) building. Kansas City, Mo.,
and who charges that a court-martial
on which he sat sentenced to death
a negro whom he believed innocent.
Cannon charges that the presiding
offlcor of the court forced the verdiet
of conviction and refused to allow the
negro to testify in his own behalf.
