Sammons asserted that he had never
received any keys or safo combination
from Smith, and had never seen the
stolen package of money before the rob
bery, at the time, or since then.
Sammons' further testimony supported
that of his wife and father-in-law, tend
Ing to establish a complete alibi. He
denied practically every material allega
tion made against him by Delbert Smith.
He explained those which he did not
deny, and told a straightforward story
with coolness and marked self-control.
' Tells tame Story.
The accused man told the same story
as ether defense witnesses concerning his
actions In a general way the afternoon
and evening preceding the robbery.
Explaining his efforts to assist in In
vestigating the robbery. Sammons said:
" "It was fhe biggest Job ever pulled eft

this one and get the credit for It"
Under cross-examination the aocused
man said Del Smith had been almost his
constant companion and one of his beat
friends since boyhood, and that he had
had great confidence In him and trusted
him. . Sammons said he had sought out
the other poatofflce Inspectors upon their
arrival In Kearney, but he admitted that
he had not sought out Inspector B rower
when he came, and als3 admitted that he
had heard that Brower was one of the
best men In the service.
Sammons proved quite proof against ef
