%. Sullivan, as government prose
cutors, were denounced by Devlin for
calling young Caminetti name* and
attempting to convict him.
. All of Devlin's shrewd challenges
did not turn a hair on Matt Sullivan,
-Whos? closing argument was as bitter
aa-.Kall against Caminetti and Diggs.
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.
The defense picked it up and made
It its argument in the Caminetti case,
and the prosecution did the same
' 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

would have fallen on deaf ears.

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.
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.
"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.
I will not recall the wife and chil
dren who have so much at stake. 1
ask you to remember the prosecu
tion is asking you to convict a man
on inference, and I ask you to do
your duty."
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
