Peraltted Testily f Cortl H Had with Kassrrlla Cer taj Bribery. Arthur W. Oros. chief claim srent tor th "trt railway company, charged with Cntmpt of court in bribing a Juror. John KemmarlloK. to arcura a Terdlct favoraMe to th company. as found not (ullty by Jud William A. Redlck In the law divi sion of th district court Friday afternoon. Judfa Radtca'a decision waa in the form f a ruling sustaining a motion of the dtfsns to direct on tha ground of insuf ficiency of cvldenc. Ha held that the (acta introduced in evidence furnish a pre sumption of guilt, but do not establish it beyond a reasonable doubt. In th course of hie opinion the Judge aid: "I confess to considerable Judicial eagerness to convict, not because of any personal feeling against the defendant, al though I bare known him a number of years. I do not say at this time what my per sonal conviction Is." Prosecution of Arthur W. Gross, was struck a hard blow by the defense Friday morning when William F. Qurley and J. W. Wood rough, attorneys for Gross, ob jected to the Introduction by the state of testimony of Chariea A. doss and Judge Redlck sustained the objection. Upon Ooaa' testimony more than upon anything la Deputy County Attorney Magney, who la prosecuting the crae, has relied for a conviction. Mr. Magney rested th state's ease Im- edlateiy ater Judge Redlck ruled on the bjectlon. Mr. Qurley of counsel for the defense made motion that on the ground of Insufficiency of evidence the court find th defendant Gross not guilty. Th final ruling of Judge Redlck means the probable dismissal by th state of the bribery charge against Oroes in county oourt. If a conviction for contempt can not be secured It appear almost certain that at bribery proiecutlon would not be successful.
