having teen submitted to the court today
on the application for a new trial for
John Jonea, convicted of the murder of

Jonea shot Leone after a quarrel In tha

waa made to the supreme court for a

. Grenade Advance.
The grounds given In tbe brief and
a loo In the argument made today before
tha court for a . new trial are that tbe
court erred In admitting testimony show
Ing that tha case was premeditated. They
admit that Jones made a written confes
sion at the erlraa in which he admitted
premeditation, but attempt to show that
after the crime waa eommlttced and Jones
waa brought back to Omaha that he was
forced to sign the confession under the
application of the third degree by Chief
ct Detectlvea Steve Melon 0 Omaba
and hi assistants. .
It la alleged that Jones waa threatened
wtth being beaten up If ha did not make a
confession and under such threat be wrote
ut a oonfeaston. The confession did not
ult Helonay, aooordlng to the argument,
and he wrote out a confession himself
d forced Jonea to sign it.
Jones claims he did not Intend to shoot
Leone and fired law to scare, him but tha
rebound threw up the mussla of tha gun
and tha bullet struck eLona In tha ab
domen. He also claimed that Leone waa
trying to get bold of a Winchester rifle
which he had la file desk.
