Mayor Bidaman says he cannot have a fair trial, be cause of Judge Piety's bias and prej udice against the defendant. Argument for Bidaman. There was a good-sized crowd In the court room when Acting Judge Wil liams took his seat. Ira II. Davis, representing City Controller Bucking ham, asked that the temporary injunc tion be dissolved for the reason that the circuit court does not have jurisdic tion to restrain a public officer from performing the duties and functions of his office. Louis Heichman, Bidaman's attorney, made a long argument, con sisting mostly of the reading of au thorities to show that, while the couvt cannot restrain an officer from doing his dtity, the court can restrain a pub lic oflicer who is doing an unlawful act who is violating the law. Judge Promises Quick Action." Davis said the court could not pass at this time on the question of title to the office. All he asked was that that part of the injunction restraining Mr. Buckingham from performing the du ties of his office be dissolved. Acting Judge Williams said he realized that this is n case of considerable import ac?"not only to the persons interest ed, but to the whole people, and should be passed on as soon as possible. He notified the attorneys that he would pass on the motion to dissolve the in junction in the afternoon. Both Men Are Threatened.
