CAMENETTI ATTORNEYS IN FINAL APPEAL 10 JURY ASSAIL GIRLS' NAME %. Sullivan, as government prose cutors, were denounced by Devlin for calling young Caminetti name* and attempting to convict him.

Bach of the skirmish lines that had been advanced by the defense was -Calmly examined and broken by Sulli van's deliberate'scalpel method. rt Sullivan did not try to fool the tary —he saw shrewd and successful business faces in the box who would pot fall for pathos and dramatics. Hf pinned his argument to the facts. P§ called Caminetti an "excrescence on .yxe surface of civilization," "a vile Jning," "a snake in the grass," and ,3sas no whit easier on Diggs, "the • cqaipanion ln crime." _j7 v Actions speak louder than words." Judge Van Fleet brought that line Into his charge to tho jury in the Diggs case. ACTTOXS LOt'DER THAX WORDS The defense picked it up and made It its argument in the Caminetti case, and the prosecution did the same Aa(ng. ' The old saw as it stands today is, ■iiActlons speak louder than words When.the eyesight is unimpaired." tjfßo me of the-actions of Lola Xorris in repulsing Caminetti yelled through a, megaphone, where spoken words would have fallen on deaf ears. ~Ai;d it was so with Marsha War rington, in her delicate condition, having all the cause in the world to persuade, induce and entice two pure j.our.g men and a virtuous girl to fle«) with her to a castle ln the moun tains. ' , For the prosecution, the talking pic tures and the soundless verbs were ttr.e#sed ln the actual taking of the tcip. the arrangement to live in a bun galow, the agreement as to divorces all that sort of thing. "Even if the men did not ask in so many words for the illicit rompanion- Bhjp of the two girls, there certainly kjls no move on the part of either Sat would lead one to Imagine they njld any other purpose than that stated in the indictment" That is the case of the prosecution.

ICK BOg 8.4.VK LOOTED i Burglars this morning broke into 'the saloon of Herman Dohler, 600 Grant avenue, and stole $30 hidden tn the ice chest. with his brother's name as his first brief. Anthony the second made the first address to the Jury for the defense. Men who have campaigned with the old warrior from Amador said they wished the old man might v have been there to see and hear. They declared the youngster was named rightly with his father's name. With all the voice at his command, never pausing for inflection or effect, the brother argued with his heart and soul. He hammered the table with his flsts and he screamed at the jury men, but he got by with it. Once Roche interrupted hlni. Young Camin etti came back with a quick anawer, that showed him to be on the alert and unawed by the size of the court or the reputations of counsel. DEFENDS FATHER'S XAME It was his first time before a Jury. "I may err in speaking for my brother," he said. "I could not alt by silently and not raise my voice against the name 'white slaver,' the vilest crime that man has invented, being attached to my father's name." Before the speaker had left off generalities and made hia excellent logical dissection of "the prosecu tion's case of inference" many eyes In the courtroom were swimming. Caminetti, the defendant, sat at the counsel table with his face almost hidden in his hand, his temples livid with the rush of blood as his brother boomed on. He watched his brother admiringly, affectionately. Perhaps his thought was, what a difference in the same blood! Mrs. Caminetti, the mother of them both, gave up to tears early. Ati times her eyes were clear, and her mother's heart must have been thrilled strangely as the brilliant young acholar pleaded for the un fortunate brother. MOTHER'S WAIL OF GRIEF "I do not ask you to remember there is a mother awaiting your ver dict," the boy said in hia peroration. "I do not ask you to remember there is an old father in Washington who has served his country long and well.

A long wail from the mother startled the audience. She got to her feet and rushed from the room, sob bing hysterically, to be alone in the witness room with her thoughts, from which she returned to the world an hour later, dry eyed and expres sionless.
