CLARA SMITH HAMON
TRIAL AT ARDMORE
(Continued from Pag Ono.)
I indicated that they had been burned
' to keep the widow from seeing them.
Dr. Hardy said after the operation
(' Hamon rallied and had the use of his
faculties.
He said Clara Hamon came to the
-hospital the next morning and was
permitted to see Hamon alone, thi
nurse being withdrawn,
"She did not stay more than two
minutes, maybe three," Dr. Hardy
nald. After Clara left, Dr. Hardy said
he went in and Hamon said ho was
going to die.
"That's the woman that did the
work. I was lying in the same posi
tion as I am now," he quoted Hamon
as saying. Hamon then was lying on
his back in the hospital cot. Dr. Har
dy described the day-by-day progres
of Hamon's case and said the condi
tion was brought about by the wound.
"A .gunshot wound in the liver," re
plied Dr. Hardy to a question as to
what caused Hamon's death. Under
cross examination, Dr. Hardy testified
that Mr. Hamon was found to have
been a sufferer from cirrhosis of the
liver when ho was operated on and
could not have lived two years longor.
Kelly M. Roach, of Oklahoma City,
a life Insurance and oil man, was an-(
other witness for the state. He said
he came to Ardmore on Nov. 21 to
deliver to Hamon a $200,000 life inst
ance policy. lie said he learned Ha
mon was at a sanitarium and went
there and saw an operation of Hamon
toy which a bullet was removed from
the back.
Mike Gorman, active vice-president
of a bank in Ardmore, testified he had
een Clara in Hamon's offices fre
quently working as a stenographer
when Hamon first camo to Ardmore.
Mr. Gorman said once in 1915 he
thought he saw Clara with a small
pistol in her hand standing near Ha
mon and she ran into another room
us he entered.
This testimony was brought out over
strenuous defense objection. The court
overruled an objection that it was re
mote and lrrevalent and had no part
in this trial.
W. H. "Meyers, of Oklahoma City, a
hardware salesman, said In November
1920, he sold a .25 calibre automatic
pistol to "Clara 11.. Smith," the date
being near November 0. The pistol
ttale record was marked "Exhibit A"
and the plntol itself "B." Mr, Meyers
was recalled and testified he at he
same time sold the pistol purchaser
a. magazine ful of cartridges. The
defense admitted Clara Hamon had
been the purchaser.
Myrtlo M. Skane, formerly a colored
maid at the hotel where Hamon was
nhot, testified Hamon had room 28 in
a hotel here and Miss Clara Smith
had No. 29; that the rooms were ad
joining and the bed in No. 28 gave
intimation of having been slept in and
that the one In room 29 did not show
it had been used. On cross examina
tion she said she had not seen the
bed in 28 for twenty-four hours, how
ever, and no blood was found in No.
29 on the day following Hamon's
shooting.
Miss Ella RIsslori, one of the pro
prietors of the hotel, where Hamon
was shot, testified that Clara Hamon
occupied th room next to Hamon's
part of the time, that Hamon paid for
his room and Clara Hamon her'sr when
she occupied it.

IS TO BE SPEEDY
.
(By The Associated Press).
WASHINGTON, March 11. Speedy ac
tion of tariff and tax revision at the spe
cial session of congress was promised to
day by Chairman Penrose of the senate
finance committee. He said the object
of the conferences arranged for Monday
between republican members of congres
sional committees and Secretary Mellon
of the treasury, was to arrange a pro
gram behind which all republicans can
put their shoulders.
If necessary, Senator Penrose said, it
is planned to resort to caucus action to
, push through the legislation. There
would be no attempt to thwart proper
discussion, he added, but caucus action
might be resorted to in an effort of har
mony.
"We cannot look for improved bus!
ness," said Senator Penrose, "until the
tariff and internal revenue legislation
are outlined and government extravagance
stopped. Even the promise of the Dins
ley tariff law immediately produced bet
ter conditions In business. Urging less
interference by the government In
business. Senator Penrose said he fav
ored abolishing "all of the autocratic
mushroom government boards all the
Wilson boards which rose during the
war."

OUR SECOND
MIR TED A
Saturday is the second anniversary of the coming of
PIGGLY WIGGLY to Pensacola. We have tried to make
everything about this store attractive and pleasant. The
second year of our existence has seen the development
to an unqualified success of a system of merchandising
which many of our friends declared would be a failure
in Pensacola, though its success had been demonstrated
wherever it had been tried. How far they were wrong
can be seen by the number of imitators which have
sprung up since we made the experiment. Imitation is
the best flattery. We are grateful to the people of Pen
sacola for the patronage which has made our store a suc
cess. -

LONDON, March 11. Russia today
is in the beginning of phases of up
heaval which will have essentially the
same result as tho memorable occur
rence of March 12, 1917, said Alexan
der F. Kerensky, Russia's former
"man of destiny," today.
"The fundamental causes of the
outbreaks in Russia," Kerensky de
clared, "are the same as those which
brought about the first revolution
just four years ago, and the outcome
inevitably will be the same the over
throw of dictatorship."
"To the Russian working masses
and the peasantry," Kerensky con
tinued, czarism and bolshevism are in
distinguishable both of them are ter
rors which must be ended.

for the Russian hordes are tired of
the bolsheviki experiments. !
"The soviet claims that the present
risings are due to allied intrigue are
entirely unfounded. Allied aid to tha
anti-soviet forces ended with the col
lapse of General Wrangel, the com
mander In southern Russia. The suc
cess of the present movement depends
largely on non-interference from the
outside world. Russia must be left
alone.
Hatred for the bolshevist regime
has been smouldering for months, but
Russia has been suspicious of the ul
timate aims of foreign governments.
