(daughter, disappeared after she fol
lowed her sister, Lois, to Texas in
1914 to wean her aw a from Innes.
The onl person to whom Lois talk
ed much about her affairs was J. I'.
Weathers, a local real estate man,
who will be the principal witness for
the mother of the two lost girls.
One of the things Weathers is ex
pected to testit that Lois told him
is that she and Innes were to be mar
ried and, after a bone moon in In
dia, would return to this countr to
establish in Salt laike fit a new re

On the occasion of a visit b limes
and his wife to Atlanta in Ma, be
fore the disippearance of the girls in
June, Weathers declares Mrs. Dennis
introduced him to "Mrs. Margaret
Minis, aunt of .Mr. Innes" Weathers i
in the presence of numerous newspa
per men, identified Mrs Innes as the
I woman introduced as Airs Minis. He
also identified Innes as the man who
'met Mrs lois Dennis several times in

Weathers sas he read several of
Innes' letters to Mrs Dennis, both on
the subject of their religious cult and I
the investment scheme. Airs Nelms i
declares Innes had Mrs. Dennis return ,
ever letter to him so he could ele
strov it, and Mrs Dennis, her mother
asserts, blindl and implicitl follow
ed the lawver's instructions. !
Airs. Nelms declares her daughter
was mndl) infatuated with Innes, and
that she entrusted him with practical-

the two.
Statements made by Innes indicate
he will ilea any communication with
Mrs Dennis after ho secured her di
vorce for her, and that he will as
sert she did not leave here to meet
him in Texas or an where else.
Mrs Innes will assert she never
posed as Mrs Alargarct Xims and
has never known Mrs Dennis.
The beginning of the trial of the
Inncscs marks the climax of a fight
against them begun by Mrs. Nelms
and her son, Marshall, immediately
after the disappearance of her daugh

The Inneses were arrested in Port
land, Ore , and extradited to Texas,
where they were tried in San An

Nelms sisters. The state was unable
to prove the girls are dead, and the
cae was thrown out of court.

extradite the Inncscs to Georgia be
gan when the Teas case was dis
missed. On technical grounds Innes
carried the case to the Supreme Court
of the United States, staving orf ex
tradition more than a ear.
His final card In the fight against
extradition was the plea to the gov
ernor of Texas that he had received
threatening letters from Georgia and
I feared that he would fall victim of
mob violence if extradited. This plea
did not avail.
