islation, according to an unanimous
declslcon rendered by circuit court of
Cuynhoga county, which revlered the
finding of the crlmlnil court of Frank
lin county, in which" the two solons
were convicted.
There had been much conjecture as
to the probable attitude of the Cuya
hoga county circuit court, composed
of Justices Louis H. Winch, Charles
Niman and TT. G. Marvin. Tho case
was transferred to that court only af
ter It had been assigned by Chief Jus
tice Winch to tlio Third circuit. At
tornoya for tho defense objected to
tho Franklin county circuit court, re
viewing the' case because It had
passed on tho Dlegel case, In wh'ch
practically tho same points were
made. Prosecutor Turner and Attor
ney General Hocan objected to tho
Third circuit because Judge Michael
Donnelly was1 a member. To settle
the squabble Judee Winch, chief Jus
tice of the circuit courts, appointed
himself and his two associates to re
view the case, which thpy d'd Sent 51.
The affirming of the Andrews and
Huffman cases by the Cuyahora coun
ty court Is looked upon by state's, at
torneys as settling forever the valid
ity of. convictions obtained In the leg
islative graft pases. Two circuit courts
have held' such convictions were
valid and the supreme court has, af
firmed In one case, that of the state
against Dlegel.
Attorney General Hoiran and Pros
ecutor Turner are of the onlnton that
the supremo court will refuse to re
view the Andrews and Huffman cases.
