card today. Testimony given bj Cam

Atkinson of Sacramento county on
tho way back from Reno after the ai

E Poan, a court reporter This was
an excerpt from the transcript in the
possession of tho government which
the defense vainly sought to have in
troduced In the DIggB trial.
Doan read the questions and ans
wers from his notes.
"Did you tell Lola Norris that
you d marrx her''" Mr. Atkinson had

wered "1 don't want to make any
statement I'd be contradicted in later,
but I believe 1 did "
"Did y.u make the promise In good
Yes, I did '
"Did you Intend to leave your wife
and children and marry her"?
"Yes. I did."
Doan testified that a clipping from
a Sacramento newspaper. p which
was printed n interview with cani

shown to him on the train. In the
interview he was quoted us havm

swered, "although I didnt't intend to
be quoted."
Cross-examination only made
Doan s testimon fuller and more pos
itive. Mr Atkinson had turned to Lola
Norris, Doan testltied "Do ou
think, ' repeated Doan, reading the
question from his notes, that he,
(Caminettl i would marry you now ?
I know he would," was the confi
dent answer
Atkinson had turned t Camlnetti.
"Would you'"' he asked.
Caminetti had been allowed to ask
his own questions of Lola Norris.
Doan said and these w-(th the answers
were taken down.
"Did you ever hear me mention
Cruelty or getting a divnrre on
crounds of cruelty?'' Caminettl asked.
Yes, said the plrjand thrm turn
incr to Atkinson added:
' Mr Caminettl told me h'd be
much happier if conditions wore dif
ferent at his home, and he said that
phvslcal cruelty would be the grounds
for his dl I'orce '
"What did Mr Caminettl say about,
his family relationship about his
elder daughter?'.' Atkinson asked
He said that was the onlv regret
he had at leaving his family, that
he loved her and grieved at leannp
her. He said if he got a divorce he
might bring the child with him later."
With this reply the cross-examination
closed and, the soernment an
nouncing that it had no other wit

to prevent its case
Lola Norris Repeats Story
Lola Norris repeated more fulL

her relations with Caminettl at yes

Necessarih the government bore
more personally and more particular
