Both Freidle and Trautwein testi fied they made an attempt to catch the booze runners. “How many catches did you make in the police boat?" the court asked Freidle. ’ One,” answered Freidle. Trautwein admitted that a tip came to headquarters from a minister at Hen derson, Ky., that a shipment of booze was coming into town by a certain road. Trautwein stated that the chief or dered -him to remain at police head quarters instead of going out and hunt ing for the booze runners. “Yo uwere to arrest them If they hap peqpd to come to headquarters?” asked District Attorney YanNuys. The witness was silent. ' CONGRESSMAN USED AS 1 CHARACTER WITNESS. | O. R. Luhring, congressman from Ev | ansville, appeared as a character witness for Fred Ossenberg. On cross-examination by District At torney VanNuys, Luhring admitted that i Ossenberg’s place of business is in the colored district and that Luhring and Ossenberg often had conferences. “You mea nthat Freddie Ossenberg is a political boss down there?” asked the district attorney. “Not a boss from the standpoint of being corrupt,” snapped Luhring. VanNuys asked, “if a political boss means a man who can control enough votes to swing an election, then Ossen ; berg is a political boss?” | “Yes,” answered Luhring. Luhring explained to the court that he was just a viistor and was suddenly called as a witness. Those introducing a defense in an at [ tempt to refute the evidence introduced by the government are Edgar Schmitt, police chief of Evansville and the central figure of the alleged conspiracy are: i Fred Ossenberg. republican factional leader at EvansvlUq, who is alleged to have influenced the sheriff of Vander burg and bis deputies not to interfere with the “whisky runners” between i Henderson, Ky., and Evansville.

In the John Herron Art institute the city has one of the noted art museums of the United States. It was organized by t(ie Art asso ciation of Indianapolis iu 1883, and Incorporated the same year. In 1895, John Herron, an Indianapolis man, left a bequest of $250,p00 with the stipulation that an art museum should be built and an art school conducted which should bear his name. For what fine piece of art is Indianapolis noted? The Soldiers' and Sailors' monument, which is recognized as one of the most noteworthy monuments in thelTnited States. It is said to be the greatest monument in the world erected to commemorate the services ot its citizen soldiery and the first ever erected directly in honor of the private soldier. Designed by Bruno Schmidt, it was erected at a cost of more than $500,000 and dedicated in 1902. (Series Number Thirty-three.)

The others of the seventy-eight de fendants with the exception of two men, who have not been arraigned, have en tered pleas of guilty. Efforts of the defense to meet the evi dence of the government are centered in an effort to refute evidence submitted against Chief Schuiltt, Ossenberg, the Kiymans, Sheriff Males aud Deputy Ruhl and Enoch Weir. Arthur Booth, during the trUI cross examined a government witness in his own behalf and this examination appar ently cleared up the situation in the opinion of Booth. Refore the defense began introducing evidence, Judge Anderson had repeatedly slated that no irrevelant matters will be allowed to be Introduced os defense, as the case is being tried solely under federal law with no consideration of INDIANA DAILY TIMES, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16, 1920. the state laws or any injunctions Is sued by a state court to prevent the prosecutor from enforcing the state pro hibition low.

Tex Roberts testified that Chief Schmitt called him to his office and stated that he (the chief) understood that Roberts wanted to give SSO to the family of James Boner, who was then ser-'-'ng a sentence imposed by the federal court for violat ing the federal liquor laws. “I had it cashed and came back and gave It to the chief,” said Schave, “and the chief asked me what it was for, and I told him I was instructed to have, it cashed. “The chief then said it was a check that Boner had left,” testified Schave. REDUCED FOR TELLING PRESS. Schave testified that a woman, alleged to be the operator of an immoral house at Evansville was with Boner at head quarters at the time the check was Writ ten. Schave slated that he was after ward reduced from the rank o fan officer after he had told the press about the transaction and that Chief Schmitt after ward reduced from the rank of an officer but talked too much.” Schave was not indicted and was only a witness of the government. Roberts testified that Schmitt told him to give the SSO to John Boner, a brother of James Boner, and stated that he did. John Boner substantiated the evidence of Roberts and said the money was used in the interest of the family of his brother. , David Wolf, former saloon keeper, terf tifled that Chief Schmitt "borrowed” SSO from him to go to Hot Springs, and that he talked to Schmitt about transporting booze into the state. SAYS CHIEF DOESN'T PAY BILLS. Abram Cohn, who operates a grocery at Evansville with his brother, Sol Cohn, admitted having beer brought into the stateyin large assignments and tes tified th/t Chief Schmitt ran a grocery bill at his store and never paid the bill during 1918 and 1919. On cross-examination, Attorney John W. Spencer attempted to force Cohn to admit that Schmitt paid his bill every Saturday night. “No, he didn't," answered Cohn. “Why last Saturday night didn't be come in and buy two chickens and pay for them?” asked Attorney Spencer. “Schmitt asked me for two chickens but I didn't let him have them,” an swered Cohn. A colored boy was introduced as a witness and testified to hauling a trunk said to contain whisky from the L. A- N. depot to a lonely countrw road and then leaving it there on Instructions from some officer at headquarters. Fred McDaniels, assistant Inspector of tile L. A N„ who was not indicted, tea lifted of seeing the trunk containing whisky and seeing City Judge Ireland of Evansville and Enoch Weir drive up to the station. McDaniels testified that he and Weir, who is a police officer tinder Indictment, followed the truck containing the trunk full of whisky, to police headquarters. "At police headquarters,” testified Mc- Daniels, “Weir told me that I was no longer wanted.” McDaniels said that this remark made him so angry that he forgot to watch where the p-uek went to with the whisky after it left headquarters. J. Cavins, a police officer, who was not Indicted, testified that he saw the trunk containing the whisky at the de pot and reported the fact to Captain of Police Andy Freidle. “Freidle over the phone told me ‘not to see too much, as I knew what tomor row was.’ ” “And what was tomorrow?” asked Mr. Slack. “Election day,” answered Cavins. Cavins testified that he “didn’t see any more,” left the atatlon and when he re turned the trunk waa not there. FINAL ARGUMENTS LATE TODAY.

OVER THREE SCORE YEARS OLD BUT IS FEELING FINE NOW Si Indianapolis man suffered from rheu matism, kidney trouble, conetW pation and loss of sleep. Dreco gave him prompt relief and he now claims it to be the best med icine In the world. Mr. Geo. W. Matthews, who lives at 860 W. Maryland Are,, has lived In Indianap olis, lad., all his life. When he was a little boy, during the Civil wax, he sold papers on the streets. He worked for the Big 4 R. R. (where he is still em ployed) as brakeman in I£BS. before air i brakes were invented. “For some time I’ve suffered from rheumatism of the joints and muscles. I could not bend over except with greet pain and my joints would snap and pop with any quick movement,” said Mr. Matthews. My kidneys troubled me a great deal and I frequently had to get up during the night, my back ached al most constantly. “My bowels were so badly constipated that I had to take some kind of medicine all the time, my nerves were on edge ao that I hardly knew what a night of sound refreshing sleep was like. “One bottle of Dreco has brought abont a great change in me. The rheumatic pains are gone; 1 never have a bachacke, can stoop and bend over like I was a boy again, my sleep is sound and I rise of mornings feeling full of vim and vigor. Dreco did for me what other medicines failed to do, and I gladly praise it" The old-faehloned remedies, made from roots and herbs, are tho best for any one to take. Dreco is made from r.velve dlf- ' ferent roots, herbj, barks and leaves. These act on the' stomach, bowels and kidneys and purify the blood. " Dreco knocks rheumatism out shortly; catarrh of the head and stomach; you Bleep soundly and creates a good ap petite. Asa blood purifier nothing can equal Dreco. It puts a stop to boils, eczema and other blood affections.
