Kelley, meanwhile, revealed that
he had subpoenaed J. E. Elgin of
San Antonio to take tjic place of
Congressman Harry M. Wurzbach as
a defense witness. Wurzbach wired
from Washington that he could not
come here but that Elgin probably
could give any testimony that he
could. That testimony, Kelley said,
would be in exposition of hi4 con
tention that Creager not only had
"laid down” on his fellow party
members locally, but had refused to
support Wurzbach when the latter
was the only Texas republican with
an Inside chance for election to con
Yesterday's testimony of those
who swore that it was generally
understood Creager and Baker were
politically allied included that of
Charlie Fordson. district clerk in
the Baker administration, who said
with a grin that he "understood”
Baker had Creager support.
Mostly, it was a day of harsh ac
cusations against Baker and the
committeeman, one man insisting
that the Good Government League
was trying to turn out of "bunch
of thieves.”
After Judge Estes had announced
that he thought Collier’s need con

must proceed on the basis that the
allegations as affecting the demo

Jack Berry, a big Edinburg fruit
grower who looked Indignant when
Baker’s faction was mentioned, was
quite testy on cross examination by
J. A. Graham for the plaintiff.
Identifying himself as an inde

one of Graham’s questions. "We’ve
been trying to get a bunch of thieves
out up there.”
"In other words.” Graham said
loudly, "your idea is that everybody

"Self-confessed and proved be

Action on a motion for change of venue, filed by attorneys for Sher-,
iff A. Y. Baker and others of Hidalgo county charged with conspiracy
to deprive certain individuals of their civil rights, was deferred until
Friday morning by Federal Judge J. C. Hutcheson, Jr., at 1 p. m. today.
The motion pleaded that partisanship and ill feeling against the Baker

in the Brownsville division. The motion said that even if the jurors were

so strong that it would probably^
seep into the jury. The motion men

of feeling in Hidalgo county, par
