Saturday, March 23, 1912. a lurid and
scandalous article was published in the

while on a visit to Peoria during the

United States court were a rip-roaring
farce and it had done him an honor
by Indicting him. Owing to the har

had been worked up. the prosecnting
attorney requested that it be stricken
from the files and that those of the
doctors be allowed to stand.

Attorney McGrath then presented an
affidavit from Myron Jordan, contrib

which set forth that he had no inter
est in the paper, was not responsible
for copies of it being sent through the
mails; that Looney would testify to
those facts if he were present, and that
owing to Looney's absence he could
not safely go to trial, and consequent
ly desired a continuance also.
Attorney Converse said he would ad
mit that Looney would testify to those
statements if he were present, but he
would not admit their truth, and with
that statement the court denied the
motion for a continuance and ordered
the case to be tried.

COIHT HEIRS SIMPLE.
Ry an arrangement between counsel
and the court It was agreed that the
two motions, one to quash and the
other for a continuance, should be
heard yesterday, and when the case
was called, Shelton McGrath of the
law firm of Quinn, Qulnn & McGrath
presented first his motion to quash on
the ground that the counts in the in
dictment failed to show a violation of
common law or of the statutes of the
I'nited States. He declared that the
article did not come within the mean
ing of the statute in which the indict
ment was brought, and requested H.
A. Converse, prosecuting attorney for
the Vnited States, to point out those
portions of the article that were ob
jected to. Attorney Converse declared
that the entire article was too long to
read, but that it was filled with vile
descriptions in detail and from begin
ning to end was lewd and lascivious.
For the enlightenment of tjie court, he
read one paragraph and was informed
that it was enough, and the demurrer
to the indictment was overruled.

Attorney McGrath then presented a
motion for a continuance until the
April term and followed it with three
affidavits, one from Looney himself
