TWO SAID TO HAVE TALKED
In Asking for a New Trial for Herman
Boche , His Counsel Says That Ruth

Prejudice in Case.
Herman Bochc's attorneys In filing

opinions as to Boche's guilt several
months before the trial. It Is nlsc
charged that the jury was not prop
erly Isolated from outside Influences
during the trial.
Outside of these charges the appli
cation for a new trial Is based on the
usual allegations , that error of law
occurred during the trial , that the
verdict of the jury was contrary to
law and not sustained by sufllclent
evidence. Tlio application for a new
trial is subscribed to by William V.
Allen , M. D. Tyler and Burt Mapes
as attorneys for Herman Boche.
The special charge against Juror
Ruth is that several months ago In

cho "ought to bo hung" and used
other language that would have dis
qualified him as a juror.

that several months before the trial

others ho said in substance that "a
man who would do that deed ought to
be hung , " referring to the charge

neither formed or expressed an
Against the jurors as a whole it is
charged that the bailiffs violated the
judge's instructions by permitting the
jurors to mingle with other persons
in a Madison barbershop and to read

To support the charges made one
allldavit is offered , a sworn statement
of I' . H. Dojle , proprietor of the Mad
ison house , that two or three months
ago ho heard Andrew P. Larson of
Newman Grove say In his hotel In
substance that "a man who would do
that deed ought to be hung , " speaking
