Helena, Mont., March 22. Charles
L. Crum. former judge of the lth
iudicial district, was impeached today
by the senate on all six articles of
impeachment, there being a few dis
senting votes on only one or two
minor articles. Then senate is to pro

In the judgment againsft Crum, he

Ordered Direct Verdict
The impeachment of Judge Crum
for alleged high crimes and mis
demeaners and malfaisance in offce,
grew out of the trial of a workman
named Ves Hall, charged with viola
tion of the espionage act, in that he
uttered treasonable sentiments. Hall
was dismissed upon a direct verdict
declaring the espionage act had not
been violated because his language,
while treasonable, did not tend to in
cite mutiny or rebellion.
At this trial Judge Crum appeared
as a character witness for the de
fense. Shortly after Hall was dis
missed Crum met Falkner Haynes,
county attorney of Rosebud county,
and one of the prosecuting attorneys
in the Hall case.
Haynes accused Crum of pro-tier-
man sentiments and high words were
passed. The nien were separated but
feeling ran so high that there were
several encounters about Helena that
night among partisans of the two men.
Judge Crum placed himself under
the protection of a United States

Dakotans Would Draft Men
To Assist All Farmers
Tierrc, S. D., March 22. A biil au
thorizing county councils of defense,
under the direction of the state rotin
cil, to register and conscript men for
labor on farms, was passed by both
houses of the South Dakota legisla
ture today. The measure gives county
councils complete power to drart any
man for farm labor and provides a
penalty of three months' imprison
ment and a $1,000 fine, for attempts
at evasion of the draft.
The bill is particularly aimed at un
employed in cities, who refuse to ac
cept farm work. The law, however, is
sufficiently to permit drafting of lysi
nes men and other at the discretion
of the various councils.
