WASHINGTON, April 22 Senator
Poindcxter of Washington, citing the
Thomas Mooney case of San Francisco,
illustrated it as an 'arrogant and tyran
nical movement to blackmail the gover
mcnt" and precipitated a lively discus
sion of the Mooney case in the senate,
in which Borah, Thomas and Johnson
of California participated. Poindex-
ter attempted to force Johnson to ex
press an opinion but Johnson main
tained he had none. He declared he
believed Mooney "capable of commit
ting such a crime as was charged, but
the fact remained that Oxman's word
convicted him and Oxman was later re
pudiated." Eoindexter, answering Bor
ah's question, declared - the evidence
was sufficient to convict ithout Ox-man.
