by the British owners, Lieutenant
Berg attempted to prevent the pos

would not have allowed you aboard."

Wind-Up of Harris Case
Is Order for Perjury Inquiry
After the jury's verdict for the defendant In the case of Harris
against The Bee, was rendered, these proceedings were had In open court:
Mr. Victor Rosewater: Your Honor, I would like to present a mat
ter here, as soon as the Jury leaves the room, with your permission.
(The Jury retire into Jury room for coats and hats.)
I do this as an entirely . Independent action and without consulting
While the outcome of this case Is very gratifying to me as one
of the defendants, I feel, that, in Justice to the Jury, to myself and
to this court, this matter, which has put In direct conflict the testimony
of this woman against the array of witnesses, which were brought here
by us, should be looked into further with reference to the question
whether she is not guilty of perjury and her husband guilty of suborna
tion of perjury. I ask you to order or request, the county attorney to
look Into this matter. The attorneys for the woman herself said that if
this verdict came in in this way It would be branding ber as a liar and
a perjurer and that she would be guilty of perjury; and the question of
whether others are guilty of subornation of perjury, I think should bo
looked Into also. .
I have no ill will again these people whatever. I do this and ask
you to do this purely for tho public good.. This woman and her husband
coma here strangers and, after going away, come back and within, a few
days start Hults and .follow them up with other suits (.gainst a great many
people and put' this county to a tremendous expense, put in 9 to tblt
cj peuse (and tha others who are defendants In these cases), which .1 Am
perfectly willing to bear if I can show, up Iblr scheme and the general
system of blackmail that is being
lawyers, not' necessarily at their Instigation, but through them, to force
people to settle suits brought without any warrant whatever.' And I ask
again and request that the county attorney be directed to look Into this
matter before these people get out ot town. ' v .
Mr. BlaEfer: (One of the attorneys of record for Mrs. Harris.) I think
that Mr. ' Rosewater's statement is not exactly apropos In this case.- I
don't believe, in asking the court to take this matter up. It he thinks
be has anything he ought to place the thing before the grand Jury or the
county attorney. I think this speech before the jury is casting an In
sinuation against us. I know this
I don't; be has thought be was conferring a favor upon me by so doing.
And I think all that has taken place up to this time Is an insinuation,
which goes personally to me and to Mr. Sawtelle, as well as Mr. Brome.
And they are not here.' And I think
against them when they are not here is unwarranted, as also I believe
Is their statements in regard to the entire matter. We have taken cases where
perhaps our clients are not entitled
case we have to conduct it until we find out ourselves. We don't know
otherwise but wbat our clients are entitled to damages; tbey may or
may not. Here the Jury has found they are not. We are willing to abide
by that verdict. Nevertheless I think
unwarranted and unauthorized.
The court: (Judge Graves..
preferred ta.bave been brought to the attention of some resident judge.
I am here as a stranger to the conditions locally and In the county. But
It would not come amiss to direct the county attorney to make an Inves
tigation, of the record in this case and If in bis Judgment be deems that
a prosecution should be brought tor
