"An honorable discharge and certi
ficate of character in such discharge,"
J. M. Wiesner, County Attorney, de
clared in his closing argument in the
case of the State vs. Leonard R. Bing
man, "did not mean much except that
the fellow had not been caught."
Bingman was arrested a short time
ago charged with burglary and grand
Jarceny of Geyer's Drug Store at
pllis, early on the morning of July
4th, 1921. The jury brought in a
verdict of guilty in the grand larceny
charge. It appears that someone got
into the store through a window fast
ened from the inside. About three j
hundred dollars worth of articles were
stolen. What was particularly
noticed was a tray or two of fountain j
pens. They were discovered in a
second hand store at Ellsworth. The I
econt hand store man swore posi-j
tively that Bingman was the man and j
that he could not be mistaken, but his
nind was blank on everything else
that happened that day. Everything!
in the wav of evidence was f ourh !
and especially that of the identifica
tion of the fountain pens. They were
high priced but had nothing written
on them that may not be found on
any fountain pens on sale in hundreds
of places in the state. The defendant
never took the stand in his own be
half but did produce the proprietors
of the restaurant at Ellis where ' he
worked. Powell and Frazier both
took the stand. The former said that
he started in the last week in June to
work on a night shift from 7 p. m.
to 7 a. m., and that he got full time
during the month of July and that he
was not absent for one day. Mr.
Frazier worked with him during the
night shift and he said that on July
3rd the restaurant was bare of all
food for they were sold out. . Until
nine or ten they were busy preparing
food and waiting on the trade and
after twelve all their time was taken
up -in getting ready for the Fourth
and that if Bingman was absent for
any length of time, it would have
been noticed. One witness from Ellis
was brought on the stand for the
state, that refused to say anything.
The state tried to prove That Bingman
had complained that he had only got
ten $15.00 out of the deal. The wit
ness refused to say anything and said
he knew nothing about it. He was
threatened with being locked up for
contempt but it did not change his de
meanor. Bingman is an overseas
man and served twenty-two months
in the army and has an honorable dis
charge. KANSAS
