permitted, to to with the Juries to si-

for the: other Jurors; that la one fnerenr
when a case had been submitted to the
Jury on Friday afternoon It retired for a
short consultation and agreed to disagree,
leaving the court house BJid separating for
the night to assemble again on Saturday
morning, and was not interfered with by
any bailiff or other court officer.
While Kemmerllng was serving on this
Jury, he says, and during' the Friday
evening that he was supposed to be locked
up with the other Jurors, deliberating on
the Verdict, he visited Arthur Gross and
waa paid f5 to be handed to another
Jtrror by the name of Grapengelser.
Kemmerllng gives some similar details
In connection with other Jurors and men
tions the names of several whom he al
leges were In the pay of the street rail
way company at the time they were on
the panel. He told of one Jury on which
he served, on which only one man out
of the twelve declined an Invitation to go

When Kemmerllng was being sought by
ths officers in connection with the case
for which he ws,a sentenced he was at
Council Bluffs, living at a hotel part of
the time. Hers, ho says, he was taken by
James Allan, a private detective, nnd
bfre he was visited dally by "Cap" Cor-

merllng does not say If these men were
acting In tho Interest of the street rail

and hla arrest and arraignment, he says,

of A. 8. Ritchie, ths attorney who de
fended him, Kemmerllng wns uncertain
na to whom he had the money from, but
asserted his belief that it came front the
street railway company.
Kemmerllng-s statement was not made
under oath, nor did he appear to be a
very willing witness. He professed at
the outset a desire to tell the whole
story, but at no time did he appear frank
or open In his statements. The Informa
tion was corkscrewed out of him very
much as It might have been obtained on
the wltnesB stand.

showed any such expenditures.

To those shoppers who have not already
finished their Christmas shopping for this year,
we want to say that shopping during the early
hours of ths day has many advantages. There is
less crowding on both the street cars and in the
stores, and both you and the sales people are
not as tired as later in the day. And when
shopping in the. afternoon, we urge you to
start for home before 5 . o'clock, if possible,
making it possible for those compelled, to re
main down town later to find room in the cars.

been paid to him, or to the claim depart
ment that might have been used for that
purpose or In any Improper or unlawful
manner. Aside from this the street rail
way company caused an Inquiry to be
made ef Mr. Kemmerllng and has In Its
possession a stenographic report of a
long Interview with Mr. Kramertlng, in
which he makes the positive statement
that no one representing the street rail
way company over gave or offered to
give him a single dollar for any purpose
whatsoever while he was serving as a
Juror, and that any statement to the

"All I have ta say regarding ths bar
association's action Is that ths supposed
facts upon which it was based, are abso

don't believe it was. If It were ws should
know It It Is extremely cnlikely that
any employ of the company would ga

Jurors or anyone also la the hope of
making tha company think him a capable
man In his department"
