Closing his plea to the jury in
Judge Chapman's court today J.
Matthew Murray, the attorney ac
cused of grand larceny, broke
completely down, sinking into his
chair, his body shaking vlsaoly,
his head bowed in his hands.
Wife Hears His Plea.
Weakened by his long impris
onment in the county jail under
heavy bonds that he was unaUTe
to raiao, the young attorney was
almost unable to open his defen-
Bive argument when court con
vened at 10 o'clock. A host of
people had gathered into the
room, including Mrs. Murray, the
prisoner's young wife, and many
legal friends of the accused man.
Clearing his throat Murray be
gan a statement that was as brief
as it was to the point.
"It is a thing unique, I am
told," he began, "to see a lawyer
standing before a court of law
pleading for his own liberty. I
had intended until my ablo as
sistant, Mr. Leo, insisted upon it
last night, to say nothing for my

"I want an acquittal on the

I don't believe because Pappas is

his word Is to be believed against
mine. My word must be better
than Pappas' because I know in
my own heart that I have told
the truth."
Concluding his remarks Murray
reeled into his chair. The court
remained in silence for nearly
five minutes.
Prosecutor Nolte, rebutting for
the state, declared the burden
upon his shoulders was the great
est he had ever borne.
"It is like fighting my broth
er," he said. "But h e has made
his bed, let him lie in it."

But has the dreaded scourge fit mankind been defeated at last?
Ifcis Dr. Odin made the wonderful discovery ilint will meant) M much
t" the human race? Are the hopes of victims In Tacomii and all over
the I'nlteri States well founded?
The answers to these qusatlonl nre so Important—so much de
pends upon them —that the Newspaper Enterprise Association of
which the Times Is a member, assigned William (i Shepherd its Rn
rupean correspondent, to spend several dnys In Pull with Dr. Qaatou
Odin, to talk to his cancer patientw and to write for the readers of
the Times what he saw and heard. The following is Shepherd's report)
PARTS, Nov. 20.—1 have met Dr. Gaiton Odin,
the 38-year-old Paris phyaician whoso fame is now
world wide because it may be that he has discovered
a cure for cancer.
I have spent much time in bis office, in his labora
tory and in his home, where 1 talked to him a* length
about his discoveries.
\ To begin with, Clio grenj physic of Puris admit that Dr. Odin
Ikis discovered the germ of cancer. Tiny will not yet admit that lie
Jias found the cure. They nay (hat it will lit months before they will
feel like giving a definite opinion.
Hut Jet me tell you Just what Dr. Odin told me. '
"Cancer fascinated me," he said, as we sat talking in his labora
tory. "I studied the blood of cancer sufferers, some of the blood
coniusicles were shaped like chestnuts instead of being perfectly
round. It dawned on me that perhaps the tamer germ was hidden
WlTHlN—inside—the blood corpuscles, like the yolk of an ckk is
hidden within the shell.
"How could 1 break the Bhell of these tiny blood corpuscles? 1
tried many chemicals.
•One day after one of these tests I picked up a piece of glass, on
whirh I had been experimenting, and behold, the blood was swarming
with microbes. That was the cancer germ released from the shell. 1
have proved that fact beyond a doubt,
"Now, 1 have found the cure. I have made a serum that kills
this germ."
"I must have thirty more cures," continued l>r. Odin, "and
(hen I sluill tell flit" entire secret to the world.
"l»o not think that all of this has been done suddenly. I have
worked on ft for IS yearH.
"If will not he many months before physicians in any part of the
world will be able t<> give my treatment."
Four men sat in the outer office of Dr. Odin's place. Two of
them had their cancer-eaten faces bound In cloths. The other two
were also cancer sufferers.
"The doctors told me I should die," one man said in answer to
my questions. "They had cut and cut at my neck without avail. I
havo traveled over Europe, seeking help. I have been coming to Dr.
Odin for a week, and the swelling has gone down by one-half. My
pain is gone."
'The doctors told me I was to die, too," said another man. "But
the swelling in my cheek is growing smaller every day. For two
weeks I have been taking the treatment."
"Is the pain gone?" asked a thin, pain-stricken Englishman, in a
tmsky voice. I found later that cancer was eating away his vocal
chords, and this day he had come for his first Odin treatment, after
receiving no hope of relief from the best physicians of London and
"I have no more pain," answered the man. "I think that the
cancer poison is gone from the swelling."
The Englishman permitted me to go into the doctor's private
office with him.
The wonderful little doctor was all energy. He snapped his
white teeth, as the talked, like Roosevelt.
"In three weeks," he told the man, "you will be well. Your
cancer is only beginning. I can cure it, positively."
Then I saw the physician sink a Byrlnge into the man's thigh and
squeeze the new serum into his body.
It was late that afternoon when the little doctor took me into
one of the largest and finest hospitals of Paris. The cowled monks,
who acted as nurses, welcomed him with delight.
