eiverruled the motion of the detense
to uuash the indictments on all but
live minor counts. The trial of Mayor
Joseph L Hell, the lirst of approxi
mately 15 officials anel politicians to
be tried, was set for Sept. 7.
All of the defendants are charged
with conspiracy to commit a felony
in connection with the registration,
primaries and elections in Marion
county, in 1514, and each is entitled
te a separate trial.
It was suggested by the attorneys
for the defendants that Thomas Tag
gart, Democratic national committee
man, be the- first man brought to trial,
but Prosecutor Ituckel saiel he had ele
cided on Pell. A rather heated debate
of more than half an hour between
counsel for the state and ele-fense pre

Mayor Hell's trial.

Previous to that action, Juelge Hich

as to five counts, in ruling on the mo

indictment as a whole and each sep

attorneys a lengthy opinion in sup

FaicYi of the ll0 defendants repre
sented by Miller and Howling, Ryan,
and Huekelshaus and Henry S. Spaan
filed their motions fer separate trials,
after waiving arraignment and enter

The five counts of the indictment
which were quashed related to minor
eletails as to specific acts of individual
defendants and had no important
bearing on the indictment as- a whole,
which rests against the defend

This statement started a debate be

tried and the time of the trial. Deputy
Prosecutor Joseph Roach answ.ereel
Miller as follows:
"I apprehend the court will take
care of that matter at the proper
time. I underestooel the prcseeutor
