charge of Attorney A. II. Kowand that the
grand jury had liecn corrupted to secure
the throwing out of an indictment against
John Murphy, din-dor of public sufi ty of
Allegheny City, proved a complete fizzle.
Murphy was charged with receiving
money from keepers of disorderly und
gambling houses. The indictment wa.-ignored
by a tie vote. Kowand
then alleged that he had affi
davits showing that memliers of
the grand jury had lieen inlluenced by
offers of money and Kitiou. The court
and grand jury insisted upon an investi
gation. Kowand produced the men who
made the affidavits, but each one- di-clan-d
that his statement was made on informa
tion received and that he had no jiersonol
knowledge of the- alleged corruption.
