OMAHA, SUNDAY MORNING, JANUARY 23, 1910 HEINZE CHARGE IS DISMISSED Judge Hough Rules that One Indict ment of Copper Sling is Invalid. BASIS OF THE DECISION Expert Accountant Assisted the Prose cutor in Grand Jury Room. NEW HOPE FOR MORSE Attorney for Ice King Says He Can Show Similar Cause. WILL GET BACK INTO COURT Writ of Ilabeae (orpin Will Be Asked at Atlanta to Get Judg ment on Certain' AUegred Part. NEW YORK, Jan. 22. A decision by Judge Hough, In the United States court today, quashing the Indictment against F. Augustus Helnze, financier and promoter, has given renewed hope to the friends and counsel of Tharles W. Morse, the banker, now Bervlng a term of fifteen years In the federal prison at Atlanta, Oa. Martin W. Littleton, Morses lawyer, said tonight that the Helnze decision of today may apply equally to the case of Morse and that If he could establish similar facts ho would move that no valid Indictment was found against his client. Helnte was Indicted on October 12, 1909, for violation of the national banking law. In quashing the Indictment Judge Hough said: "The common law Is that a grand Jury, while deliberating, shall listen to witnesses who give testimony and--to no one else, except the authorized law officials of the commonwealth. When this Indictment was tender consideration In the grand Jury room, John F. Fernsler took part in the proceedings to the extent of asking some technical questions of other expert account ants, and throughout suggested the method of examining expert witnesses thought to be allied with the defendant." "Mr. Fernsler 1 an expert accountant, not a lawyer, and was not retained by the proseceutlon as counsel. "This may be a good move," continues the court, "but It has not been adopted by law. It haa never been argued before that counsel Is entitled to have at his elbow In a grand Jury room an expert assistant." Morse Will Renew Fight. After Mr. Littleton, counsel for Morse, had read Judge Hough's decision, he issued a statement in part as follows: "It has been brought to my attention that the method, by which the ludictmenta (against Morsel were procured Included the service before the grand Jury of a non professional officer, designated by the fed eral government. As I understood It, the court has determined that, for similar prac tices, an indictment against Mr.' Heinie shall be quashed. If I can establish similar fact in the case of my client, I shall move that no valid Indictment was found against him. "But whether I can establish such facts or not, I expect within thirty days to apply to the federal court at Atlanta for a writ of habeas corpus which will enable me to present to the court these questions: "First As to whether the court was a constitutional court within the meaning of the constitution, it being conceded thai one of the Jurors was demented at the time of the trial. ; Second Ab to whether the defendant was afforded a trlal.by an Impartial Jury, when the Jury was overshadowed and surrounded by the private paid detectives of the prose cution. ' .Third As to whether or not a sentence of five years In excess of the statutory term is a void sentence upon which the de fendant can be confined. More Indictments Against llelnse. There are still two indictments pending agaii st Helnze, one of which charges over certification of the checks of Otto Helnze & Co., and the other misapplication of the funds of the Mercantile National bank for the benefit of Helnze himself. According to Attorney Smith, who has been assisting the United States dstrlot at torney In the prosecution, the quashing of the third Indictment today will merely re sult In the delay incident to obtaining a neW indictment under the conditions im posed by the court. He believes he has sufficient evidence to do so without the assistance of a lay expert. - Kxtrn Dividend by Steel Trnat.
