The Wymore and McCook divisions,
which have been suffering from lack of

reported heavy rains after the precipita

Diggs to Go on
Witness Stand in
His Own Behalf
SAN FRANCISCO. Cal., Aug. 18,-The
third week of the trial of Maury L. Dlggs,
charged with white slavery, will begin
tomorrow. Diggs Is expected to take the
stand In support of tho contention of the
defense that tho purpose wnlch Impelled
him and F. Drew Camlnettl to run away
with Marsh Warrington and Lola Norris
from Sacramento to Reno was solely to
escape troubles pending them, and not to
tlmulato the white slave traffic. Tho de
fense will Beek to show that the girls
were not transported within tho meaning
of the Mann law.
L. P, DlggB, father of tno defendant.
has already testified that he had threat
ened the four with arrest In the hODo of
severing his son's relations with the Wart
rlngton g)rl. and the owner of the Sac-
ramento building, In which Diss's had in
office, related that ho had warned Dlggs
that Juvenile officers would be after him
for taking young girls to his office.
By showing that the girls were acou-
mulatlng thick and fast about Dlggs, the
defense will try and convince tho Jury
that he was afraid to remain in Sacra,
monto and that If he had not gone to
Reno, he would have fled to some point
where he would not hrfve been liable to
the operation of the "Mann law.
