Blackmail was frequently inter- spersed in Campbell's argument in attacking the. -motives of Lynn in publishing the article attacking SanguiueUi. "Lynn came to this valley when all was peaceful and Campbell declared. "He deliberate ly set' out to divide the community and set. neighbor against neighbor and friend against friend." Judge Campbell also attacked the methods used by J. C. Mur- ray of the defense counsel, in mak- ing an avowal in .open court as to what tlie defense would prove. "I Murray was presented after the defense opened its case, and came- when the state objected to testi- mony regarding. tubercular cattle. Judge Campbell declared at that .ime that the state welcomed an investigation of .the .Sanguinetti lent'but the testimony was.clearly irrelevant because the ihfonma- tion dealt inly .with the-charge that Sanguinottl had allowed to be placed in the. milk formalde- hyde -in quantities sufficient to kill. Following the avowal of. the "noted criminologist" who also is -Lynn's brother-in-law, the court allowed the defense to proceed with that line of testimony.
