that he was free. Koch embraced his
fathoi and shook hands with each mem

I.'rnesl M. O'Hiien, Joseph C .lotion and

Koch was very calm when the -, ei
dU't was pronounced. This afternoon
ho was M'i'ii driving about the; business

Asked for a statement about the
ease, Mr. Jones of the defendant's
counsel, said this afternoon: "I claim
no glory in this mutter. Like mv as
sociates I ha vo worked falthtullv on

went to West Haven the dav after
the' shooting and secured the dub
Gordon used and his cap, and was
abla to have witnesses piesellt to

tlmt only one person walked from the

was a very Important step In working
up our case. Mr. O'lliien's careful
examination of Mr Koch and Air.
Alolonej's skilful cross-examination
of Oliver Neddo, the lighthouse' ten
der, were highly Important.
"I cannot understand why men like

in an official position, ssuiubl have
unibrtaken to have impeached tin
testimony of a witness like AIUs I
Itlpb v or to have destroved the
