LOS ANGELES. May 3K.-The name of
Clarence D Arrow was mentioned by
George N. Lock wood, one of the prosecu
tion's star witnesses, for the first time
today in connection with th trial of the
former chief counsel of the McNamara
brothers for alleged Jury bribing. Lock
wood declared Darrow was walking
toward Bert H. Franklin when the latter
was arrested for bribery a few momenta
after Lockwood had received the first In
atallment of the payment for his prospec
tive vote in the trial of J. B. McNamara.
The day In court was one of excltment ;
from the time of convening until adjourn- j
ment. Clashes between attorneys, the ex-1
change of charges of attempting to in-,
nuence tne jury, an important rut-1
ing lor tne prosecution on tne aa-
mlsstbtllty ot evidence objected to by
the defense, and the reappearance or
Lockwood on the stand for his resump
tion of the story of the alleged trapping
ot Bert Franklin, kept the atmosphere
of the court room at fever heat through
out the three hours' session.
The exciting events of the day also In
cluded a repudiation by District Attorney
Frederick of Detective Robert J. Foster.
and the National Erectors' association,
which employs Foster, ss participants In
the prosecution of the Darrow case. The
repudiation followed the submission by at
torneys for the defense of court affidavits
In support of a petition that Detective
Foster be cited for contempt of court
Story of Alleged Trap.
A morning newspaper printed an Inter
view with Foster today giving what pur
ported to be the facta concerning the
alleged trapping of Darrow In a hotel
room by means of a telephonic device.
Foster was quoted ss ssylng the instru
ment would bring about Darrow's con
viction. The defense contended the inter
view was printed with a view of In

The ruling by Judge Hulton on the Is
sue raised by the defense Saturday was
declared by attorneys for th prosecution
a sweeping victory for them a It will
enable them to Introduce all of the evi
dence in their possession tending to prove
that Darrow had been guilty of attempt
ing to bribe other Juror.
Lockwood smiled when relating Inc'
dents which occurred while he was act
ing under the Instructions of the district
attorney In the decoying of Franklin,
who. he said, had negotiated with him for
hi vote a a McNamara Juror.
An objection was raised by the de
fense to nearly (very question put to
Lockwood by th -district attorney and
but few were sustained.
Continuing from the point at which his
story was Interrupted Saturday, th old
soldier as Id that at his first visit to
Franklin' office. Franklin had told him
to be careful how hi wife apent th
money if th deal went through.

wife would be the last person I woulJ
want to know about It."
Franklin, he said, visited his home

told him that he would have nothing
to do with the transaction. Franklin pro

thla day Franklin made another vls't
to Lockwood' farm. Franklin told him
that hi name had been drawn as a
Juror in the McNamara trial, and sail
to him, the witness testified: "George
there Is St.M In It for you and I want
you to have It."
Fearing to accept the proposition,
though, with reluctance Lockwood sell
that he expressed fear that the money
would not be paid him nd Franklin, h
said, declared: "Well. I'll talk the mat
ter over with Clarence Darrow and ha ll
Franklin then agreed to come the next
day and talk It over, lockwood said
that at that tint he had no location
of letting himself be bribed.
"Stata whether yon war acting with
the knowledge and advice of the district
attorney T" directed Captain Fredericks.
"I was," said th witness.
