Eugene Duvall, 26, Behind
Bars Dozen Years, Gets
5 to 14 More.
A man’s love for his mother never for
sakes him.
“I have the best mother In the world.”
So pleaded Bn gene Duvall, 2d, of Ma
rion, Ind., charged with attempting to
asault a taxicab driver with Intent to
rob, in asking leniency today from
Judge James Collins of the criminal
“I have spent twelve years of my life
behind prison bars,” he said with emo
tion. “My conduct Is killing my mother.
Give me a chance to make her happy.”
He paused.
“I—l never have had a chance. Al
ways behind prison bars. Help me," he
Judge Collins, knowing that Duvall
had pulled the same ‘‘sob stuff” before
other courts, sentenced him to from fire
to fourteen years In the Indiana re
Duvall rose slowly from his chair,
staggered to the edge of the witness box
and fell, apparently In a faint, on the
tloor of the courtroom.
Other officers who have seen Duvall
Aaint” In other courtrooms carried him
to an anteroom of the court. As soon
:>3 the court instructed Dr. Robinson,
county coroner, to attend him, Duvalt
suddenly showed signs of life and wa*
able to walk to the jail.
The emotional plea of Duvall was the
most dramatic event staged In the crimi
nal court for the last five years, court
attaches said.
Duvall's mother is seriously ill at her
home in Marion and through friends
she asked the court not to pass sentence
on her boy until she was able to appear
some time next week to ask for leniency.
Duvall was arrested in a taxicab driven.
by Patrick Murphy, 539 North Bevllle
avenue, on the evening of Feb. 13 at Illi
nois and Washington streets.
Murphy testified that Duvall and an
other man, now said to be dead, eugaged
him to drive them to Anderson, Ind.,
and that after starting to leave the city
Duvall suddenly put a revolver against
his side and instructed him to drive on.
Murphy drove instead toward the busi
ness district and at Washington and
Illinois streets made the wrong turn 1
and purposely killed his motor.
Murphy testified that Duvall told him
he would kill him If he made an outcry.
Officer Judkins went to the machine
to see why the driver disobeyed the
traffic rules, and when he pulled hack
the curtains Duvall and Murphy were
fighting over the possession of a re
Duvall admitted that he and a mar. I
named Walter J. Fisher, now said to be j
dead, engaged Murphy to drive them to j
Anderson. Duvall freely admitted that
he and Fisher intended .‘‘pulling off a
$63,000 job there.”
Duvall denied that he was a partner
of Morris Enright, who Is now being ;
held on a charge of murder in Chicago. [
He admitted forming Enright's acquaint- j
ance while in prison in Illinois.
Duvall will be taken within a few ;
days to the reformatory and will be !
closely watched until the transfer* is
made from the jail to the state institu
tion, the authorities stated.

will come the test.
A joint resolution declaring rhe re
sumption of a state of peace between the
United States nnd Germany was intro
duced in the house today by Representa
tive Tinkham of Massachusetts.
While repealing the Joint reeolation
adopted April 6, 1917, declaring war. It
Is provided that Germany must recog
nize all rights which the United States
might have gained under the treaty of
Versailles hail this country ratified the
treaty. If Germany should fail to do
this the president is empowered to re
taliate by prohibiting by proclamation
that resumption of trade relations or the
extension of loans or credits.
Should the peace of Europe be again
threatened, the Tinkham resolution de
clares this country would regard such an
International development with “grave
concern nnd deal with it as the exigencies
of the situation demanded." There is no
pledge of military participation which
would commit the United States to a
definite alliance in the event of a future
European war.

and unalterably (in the opinion of many
senators) put the treaty Into the cam

one of the bitterest campaigns ever waged
for a seat In the United Stares senate.

The case hinged on the question of
whether or not Senator Newberry
"caused to be expended” an amount in
excess of the sum allowed by the Michi
gan statutes in procuring his clwtlon.
This amount Is $3,750.
The defense contended that Newberry
had nothing to do with the spending of
the lapge sum of money; declaring that
he did not contribute one cent to the
campaign fund and *vns not informed of
the huge amounts spent in his behalf dur
ing the campaign. •
A grand Jury summoned in the au

federal statutes by spending an exces

A conspiracy to defraud the whole state
of Michigan by using the mails In the
alleged fraudulent election scheme was
also charged.
These were the two main accusations
which went before the Jury. Four other
Indictments were eicher quashed or com

The trial covered u period of eight
weeks. More than 400 witnesses testified
