W. O. Comstock; Charfes C.'' Jameaon afid
Aqullla Trtplett .' were 'concluded before
Judae Munger lata Friday evening- and
Judge Munger has taken the ease under ad
visement until 10 o'clock Monday- morn
ing, when he will decide on the motion.
In addition to the bill of exceptions to be
filed In the ease upon which may be based
a motion for arrest ofJudtynent the de
fendants have about BOO pases of assign
ment of errors.
The fourth chapter in the big land trial
Id which W. O. Comstock. Bartlett Rich
ards, Charles C. Jameson and Aqullla Trtp
lett are the defendants, and who were
found giillty of conspiracy to defraud the
government ot the United States out of
use, possession and title to large areas of
public Ifcnds In Sheridan county, began Fri
day morning in the argument on the mo
tion for a new trial before Judge W. H.
Munger of the federal court.
R. B. Hall, principal attorney for the de
fendants, offered a bill or exceptions, the
general tenor of which was a plea for sep
arate trials for his clients. This the court
overruled and told Mr. Hall he could have
ten day to file his exceptions. Hall did
not want this, but asked time to read the
full record, which he said he had been un
able to procure until a day or two ago.
Exceptions re. taken to the alleged fact
the jury was under urvlllanc of court
"This exception will ( overruled." said
Judge Munger. "You enn the bill today
If yo wltth. The order of the court will
be, however, thut the d. -fondants will be
given flvs days In whUit to file Its bill of
exceptions, tbe goveriin-.int teji days to an
swer and three days afterwards the. mat
ter will be submitted to the court." -.
Mr. Hall Is the court now ready to hear
the argument on the motion for a new
PIrw Whei Ready Gridtey.
The Court Tea, proceed.
Mr. Hall then went Into an extensive
argument relative to the examination of
the jury summoned to try the cases and
"It occurred to me at the time as singular
that so many of the Jury Were well In
formed as to the land laws. They were
asked, to which the government objected
and the objection was sustained. If they
considered It, fraudulent for ,an entryman
to accept fees for filing and ofher expenses
from other partita The court mads this
examination of Itself In several Instances
and said that such an act would not be a
crime. More than half the jury were ex
amined on . that Question and then the
examination was stopped, which, I think,
was a grievous, erroneous and dangerous
error. I cite this simply to how the limi
tations put on the examination of the
The Court If an objection wa properly
sustained by the court ten times it is Juat
as affective as If It was sustaolned but
onoe. If It woe- Improperly sustained it
was as Improper at one time as It wouk'
be at another.
Worala of aetlaa,
Mr. Hall then went cults extensivo:.
Into the wording of the questions ackc
the Jury, particularly as referred to the.r
oonoepllon of 'what constituted a fraudu
lent act against the land laws and by ;hi
means proposed to show that' certain Jurors
had ytry pronounced views on the matter
and were consequently not proper persons
to sit on a jury of this character.
Mr. Hall repeated the plea that he had
not had time to go over the record, and
the court t,U Llm ho had had thru
months, asking him' how. much, more time
H would take him to read it.
This mighty case whlph has convulsed
this part of the country with Its army
of secret service men, has not produced
one scintilla of evidence connecting my
client with any crime," asserted Halt with
some fervor. "Different things and. Inno
cent acts has given rise to the conclusion
that the sum of them Is guilt"
Denies Evidence of Crime.
Mr. Hall finished hla argument about l:S0
o'clock In the afternoon and- was followed
by H. C. Brome. The gist ot Mr. Brome's
argument was that not a particle of evi
dence had been produced connecting either
of the defendants with any criminal act,
particularly with any transactions In which
I. D. Hull acted as the alleged agent In
procuring soldiers to make filings on the
Judge A. W. Crltes argued alolng similar
"No one had sworn, that he was bound
by any contract or agreement to transfer
the land to either of these defendants,"
said Judge Crlfes. "No soldier' entry was
followed up by final proof. '
"The Jury did not give the evidence the
consideration It deserved. It was out but
an hour and thrco-ju:irters. The men on
trla,l should not bey convicted by prejudice
and a statement that could not be contro
verted or met. These, witnesses were trot
charged with being co-conspirators, but
were brought here as witnsase to estab
lish an ofTenoe agnlnjt ahese defendants.
We couldl not meet such a question in the
face of that Jury. The laws of conspiracy
ore a menace to noeny in met part or tn
country where any Innocent act can be
construed by an unfriendly influence Into
Ample Proof, Says Hoik,
Special Assistant District Attorney Rush
In closing the argument for the govern
"In my ' opinion there has been ample
evidence to support the verdict of the Jury.
Ihe Jury was Instructed property and
fairly by the court. The question of the
Ineligibility of the jury because ot the
jurors' knowledge of the law Is a puerile
one. If that rule were to be applied uni
versally we could nover get a Jury In an
case satisfactory to a Jury lawyer. Th
discretionary power of the court Is not t
reviewable matter. Tho question of goiny.
on and living on the land Is a question ol
Intent and does not refer to the partlcullai
time the entry la ma do. No error can tx
predicted upon such intent.- 1 think w
have shown a combination by circum

Mr. Hall asked for a few closing words.

""You are a fine one," remarked a young
woman but evening to Arthur Gross in
front of the poetomce.
Mr. Gross had no recollection of having
a photograph of ths younr woman among
his galaxy of female )lkrnus-s, nor could
he remember ever having seen the person
before. But he deigned to answer.
"I don't quits understand you," responded
"You want to get out ot It, do you?" the
young woman continued.
"Get out of what?" Gross Interrogated.
"Why, you know you promised to attend
that dance last evening. I held three
dances for you, but you didi not mine,"
the young woman responded.
Gross felt a brain storm coining on.
"Tou evidently are niUtalLn. I woe not
Invited to any dance, did not Intend going

having seen you before. My name Is Ar

me before?" Gross added.
"Goodness gracious. I though you were
Ed Beebe. Tou must be his brother, or
cousin, or some relation. I am very sorry
I spoke to you," the young woman ex
plained. This Is only one of tbe many amusing
Incidents arising from the striking sim
ilarity between Arthur Gross and Ed Beebe,
both Omaha yuung men. They attended
high school together. One evening Beehe
was to take a young woman to a party.
Gross heard of that appointment and was
on the scene before Beebe. The young
woman did not know the difference and
actually accompanied Gross to the func

woman's borne he found It bard V convince
tbe parents that he had not been there
ten minutes before and left with their
