Heney Ignores Delmas' Challenge to Submit Case Without Argument |
Continue! trom Pasfe 1, Col». 1, 2, 3
Steias had scarcely arisen from the
witness chair when Heney turned to
the court.
• "That' is ' our"case. your I honor." ho
said. ' , \u25a0 -..-»., ,; ,
"It is ours." returned Delmas so
quickly that hie words sounded like aa
echo of Heney's. S3SSS
- There 'was i a sudden stllliiesß In -the
t'ourtroom, broken, by . Judge;, L.svwlor*R
order to proceed --to argument. ,Botb
sides demurred, however.'because.ofth'o
surprising tufn i» the case which had
left 'them,- they declared,' unprepami.
The court acceded to. the request' for
ati.udjoiirnrnent and a recess was taken
until . 2 o'clock, the requests -for in-,
ptfuctions being filed beforft. th«> case
was resumed. "
Before adjournment was takSn Del
mas .turned a 'neat point against the
state by flinging an open challenge
to Heney to submit the« caae-;;"withont
argument. Unwilling to allow it to go
to" 4 |hejury without a thorough sum
ming, UP °' evidence Heney was forced
to sweep aside his plans for the sec
ond time and undertake the opening
argument himself instead^of leaving it
to Assistant District Attorney O'Gara
and saving his own endeavors for the
rebuttal, as -ho a .had intended- Fearing
that should C'Gara address/ the -jury
first, confining 'himself j, to" a logical
discussion of the evidence, Delmas
would utill' refuse to argue and^ so
avoid the danger of Hexiex's power of
damaging Abuttal, the chief attorney
for the prosecution took the only; way
oat of th«rpositlon he wan forcsd^lnto
and elected to handle. both opening^and
closing addresses himself.
niCKEIUVKLL DRAWX IN
Through the testimony given by
Stelss In the morning the name of Man
ager Pickernell, assistant to.thepresii'
dent of the American Bell telephone
company of Boston, the- parent com
pany of the Pacific States, was -drawn
into the case for the first" time; and it
was apparent that the defejise;x as en "
deavoring to throw the responsibility
for Halsey's acts on his shoulders, at
least fey implication. It "-^a^-- shown
that his power extended over offl
ctalg of the local company," anU, al
though Heney attempted to -'establish
that this authority was concerned^only
with the physical management 'of the
company's affairs, Coogan, in .his-"ad
dress to the jury, made a strong', pblnto
of Pickernell's presence In the city at j
the time the telephone bribes were paidr'j
The auditorium of the Temple Israel
was crowded to the doors when the af
ternoon session was called, and again
in the evening the seating capacity of
the big courtroom was taxed. -In the
throng were scores of women, and
neither they nor the men who composed
the audience -were of the class from
•which the usual court loungers are
drawn. Xot only were, there prominent
attorneys and professional men by the
dozen in the vast audience, but there
were society men, clubmen and repre
sentatives almost in legion of the
wealth and social life of the city, drawn
to the place as much on account of the
prominence of tbe defendant at the bar
as because of the fame of the opposing
attorneys. The balconies of the.audi
torium as well as the. main floor -were
tilled with listeners, but' the audience
was quiet and undemonstrative.
?. GLASS SITS "WITH BOWED HEAD
t 1 In the pew in the rear of his attor- '
neys. Glass sat bowed as though pray
ing while he was in turn excoriated
by Heney and lauded by Coogan. . W^Ui
bis arms outstretched over the rear of
the seat in front of him, and his -head
buried in his hands, he gave indication
feut once or twice during the whole
day that his being was steeped in the
battle progressing; between the attor
neys a few yards away from him.,Onc<v
jrnen Coogan referred feelingly to his
friendship. for his client, \u25a0declaring that
n'e hoped to fight for the latter's vin
dlcation until every taint; of
had been removed from his name, Glass
raised his head and touched his hand
kerchief to his eyes, in which tears
were glistening.
;--\u25a0? Heney opened, his address with a low-
Tolced, calm, deliberate statement to
the Jury of the duty devolving on the
prosecution .to seek out . and punish
crime and a concise explanation of the
facts to be decided In determining the
question of guilt. Then, with a sudden
burst of indignation as he turned tbe
attention of the jury from the abstract
to' the detail of the facts presented by
the events of the trial and the sub
stance of the testimony "Introduced, he
threw every atom of his power of ter
rible denunciation into his words, hurl
ing invective after Invective at \u25a0 wit
nesses, -attorneys and defendant. Hia
face flushed with . the fervor of his ut
terances, perspiration dripping from
his forehead, his hands clenched an'l
his whole body trembling with the
tension -of thought and. expression, he
.was the personification of earnestness
There was.no attempt at polished rhet
oric no elusive . appeals to sentiment
or sympathy, but driving, forceful pre
sentation of fact built on fact, of con
clusions logically drawn from the-tes
timony \u25a0 adduced during the trial, and
contemptuous flings vat the tactics of
the men whom he charged with de
bauching Ban \ Francisco and debasing
the courts of justice..

\u25a0 .Zimmer's action in.refusing: to testify
waß stigmatized by' Heney in th^most.
violent terms, and he' laid the:reß)ponsi
billty for, the act directly at 5 the door of
tHe defendant's"; attorney. In summing:
up the case, after a logical drawing/of
the points in. evidence, he declared' that :
the only defence advanced; from begin
ning to end in Glass' behalf, was "based
by the attorneys.. on" "the belief that \u25a0
without Zimmer's f testimony it;' would
be .impossible", for v -the. prosecution ,to
( prove beyond a reasonable; doubt that
1 Glass ordered Halsey ; to pay the money, I
j to the supervisors, and that in case this
failed, the defense relied upon the pos
sibility of error committed during the !
progress of the tial. / : '
Delmas did : not* even, appear in the
courtroom during ' Heney's; argument,
nor while - his . associate, ?Coogan, . was i
making .the opening argument for j the !
def ense, y , ljut Attorney ",McPlke stated j
that Delinas was ill and that ; no dis- ']
respect .was intended? by his absence.]
Judge Lawlorv BUggc jied. that an ab
sence to "prepare for the closing ad
drees .would be. a* matter •of "course and >
would not be censured by^the court.
STATE'S CASE COMPI.ETE3
That one-hoyr of Delmas'; eloquence !
must save Glass if anything Is to do
no is attributable; solely, to the sound- j
ness of the state's circumstantial case j
at^very point,' utld | not to any lack of |
logical argument; by Attorney Coogan. ;
The latter handled the case smoothly l
and directly, but with little, on which !
to base an open- attack* and with no j
loophqlejoff erlng^itaelf x he did : not suc-^
ceed impenetrating ! the complete armor
of corroboratlon' with whtlch Heney
has established ev^ry * essential fact in
connection with the. charge. '
Coogan-rnade_no effort Ho refute the ]
testimony -of -the .supervisors, and vlr- j
tually t admitted 7 the 'payment of the .
bribes tij. them. by. Halsey, for his every i
argumsnt;;presupposed . « such ; ' bribery, I
and {only - direct .Words ,of admission
were; lacking. His contention; in*l>rlef,
jwai^that as long ': as . a 'possibility re
mained of Glass' innocence, the jury,
couid not convict, and all the stress of
his logic was. brought Into play to con
vince the Jurors that,; at least from a
technical standpoint, a reasonable doubt
of " the defendant's guilt must survive
the _ prosecution's case. i
: Coogan's delivery was quiet and in
strong "contrast to the flre-of ;Hertey's
preceding argument. He referred: to
Glass* long 'business life, to his . own
friendship " for the defendant, and ' he
appealed to the Jurors individually,
calling, them by name, to search their
own* hearts for any trace of "doubt be
fore returning a verdict "of conviction.
When Coogan concluded after an hour's
argument in the afternoon and 30 min
utes In the evening, given to a rebuttal
o£ Heney*^ contentions/Assistant Dis
trict Attorney O'Gara ' petitioned . the
court to be allowed to answer '. him ; at
once. Both Coogan and McPike ob
jected to allowing the, prosecution^ an
Intermediate argument, and after a
short examination :* of the' statutes
Judge Lawlor ruled that the final re
buttal only would be allowed.
HEXEY'S WORDS TO JURY
In' his opening argument Heney
talked an hour and forty minutes. He
said:
Gentlemen of the Jury: Yon probably. all wish
that ;i; had accepted " Mr. Delmas' proposal .. aad
•abmttted' this case to you without argument, and
I ' would have • done jso except , that ; I . feel '.It my
\ duty as : the ; attorney ? for i the . people I to ; present
this case \u25bato \u25a0 yon In - Ita .'fullest vform. -. H'ou 'are
here cs citizens - under -a i republican form gof
government,"' doiug 'yonr^daly as • yon ; are 'called'
opW to do it, though 'four own time'; has been
sacrificed and ; taken i up. 5 You * are hero r , to pee
justice done, : to see : that uo . man ia ; rallroad</d,
and that this defendant is accorded his rights.
On the other hand yon niv here to see that the
law which demands | the punishment of criminals
Is upheld, and 'that it canuot be ' debased ; nor
owned by .this defendant or anybody else.,.,
. It is the duty of the attorneys to "aU yon in
recalling ; the evidence that has been : presented
and assist yon in connecting the integral' parts
of the testimony that yen have^ heard." In a
long trial * like this,' which has extended over
several days; it is easy to forget a part of the
testimony produced, and it is my duty to assist
yon In summing it up " end - seeing this case as
a' whole." ..'-.-.\u25a0\u25a0'-.. .-. -, : s', - \u25a0.-/-..\u25a0:„ \u25a0
The question before you to decide" Is whether
or not the > defendant. Glass, bribed the \u25a0 super
visor," Charles Boston, by: paying him $5,000 to
Influence bis .vote 5 In : a matter then and th*re
pending before . the board \u25a0 of supervisors,: which
was ; concerning ; the . application \u25a0\u25a0' of the Home
telephone company for the sale: of a franchise.
Now, did Glass pay Boxton that money? M a
matter of - course, u\ I - outlined •- to , you ; In > toy
opening statement, \u25a0• we J did : not Intend \u25a0to i show
that U lass 'banded Bex ton that money. But if
Glass aided or ; « betted ' Halsey : in paying . that
moneyxbe, is Just «s ruilty as Halsey Is; if lie
<irdcred or directed': liitlsey'. to': pay it his 'guilt
Is equal to that of: Halsey. And that: Glass d'.tj
so aid and direct does 'not have to be proved 'to
yeni by > direct testimony, alone, .; but c*n ;; b*
proved with i the nld o£ clwjin's Lantla I evidence.
This is. true because; as yea can sec by the'ac

That Kohler & Chase prices ana
-values arc attractive is attested by
the fact that we have sold Inside the
last . ten days over forty pianos t.>
persons who were sent to this" store
by -customers who had bought . piano*
for their homes here during this sala
—they knew .values and \u25a0 knew ttie
house -and V knew we have never of-
fered ; an unworthy piano,' not even for
the effect that : a low price might havo.
Present effect is one thing. .-.Reaction
effect is r another— -and we want none of
the reaction that .would corae from sell-
ing poor pianos. We've distributed near-
ly all our surplus stock "of new pianos
—It was sell them or carry the ris»«
of insurance ourselves— we sacrificed
profits, and " in some cases even ', more,
but, we have about "cleared. decks." and
by Saturday's closing time at 9:30 p.*\m.
will not worry about 'extra' risks, etc.
We appreciate the hearty^ patronago
given us by the public during this sale,
and can assure one and all that never
before and no : doubt never again will
you buy, better pianos— if- as good—
for anywhere .near^our sale prices.
We were ; in a measure forced to re-
duce our ; stock— and when we sacri-
ficed profits we made nearly three hun-
dred new, friends » for the store. Send
your friends today or tomorrow — toda/
would be-better." If ,. at a
write or wire— only today and tomor-
row— this Is hurry up time.
