Le Mars Globe-Post (Newspaper) - May 3, 1928, Lemars, Iowa Established IsM ^ A Issued Monday and Thursday L E M A R S , IO> VA, T H U R S D A Y , M A Y 3 , 1 9 28 ITS INTELLIGENCE Attorney Compliments 1 2 But Hart Is Found Guilty The following are the members of the jury which was described as be tag " a delight to the eye; a balm to the s* id": 9. W. Pratt, foreman, 3. J. Reisch, Emma Nlgg, Herbert Rltz, George K. Slebens, fWyrtle Taylor, George Lndwig, Ed Marlneau, Ed HammlH, Elsie Muecke, Fred Mills, Everett Beeren. In Andiag George, Hart guilt)-, the jury flxsd the value of the sugar as being | 1 SO, which makes it grand larceny. Hart remains at liberty under his $ 2500 cash appearance bond. In case he makes a motion for a new trial, as Is confidently expected, the motion will be argued on June 5. If the motion is denied Hart will be put under another bond pending an appeal to the supreme court The jury which tried George " Shorty" H a r t on the charge of stealin 2600 pounds of sugar from the J, P. Beck warehouse at Remsen, returned a verdict of guilty about 9: 30 o'clock last night. The jury had been out since about 4 : 30 p. m., and was out five hours. Hart has 20 days in which to file a motion for a new trial, and then, it is expected, will take the matter to the supreme court. He already has a case pending in supreme court, his appeal from the verdict of the district court at Ida Grove, la., which found him guilty of breaking and ent e r i n g ' t h e Luna theater at Battle Creek, la. The Ida county case was to come before the supreme court last fall, but for some unknown reason the case wast postponed, although, according to the clerk of courts of Ida county, the transcript has been duly filed. • jwant people in passing by to point to your house and say with pride in their voices: v > " ' There lives the juryman who gave George Hart a fair trial! , " Then you will be very careful of the verdict you render. Don't bring the dark ages down upon us again, but protect those rights which King John was forced to give at Runnymede to his subjects, a fair trial by jury." Mr. Egan paid the jury a very handsome compliment when he started his argument. He said: Poetry, classic writers, motherlove . and exceptionally intelligent j u r y and hamiher- and- tongs fighting all figured in the second trial of Shorty Hart for the Remsen sugar theft. Most of the testimony was about the same as before, but the niost sensational evidence was introduced by Mrs. John Blake, a surprise witness, who was put on the stand as a s t a t e witness. Mrs. Blake testified that before her husband's trial Hart came to the house and urged, h im to explain that he obtained the sugar from Jack Kauffmann, whose testimony resulted in Hart's conviction at Ida Grove, la., on the charge of robbing the. Luna . t h a a l ^ ^ ^ g j ^ - c r e e k . d i r ty deal, and that he could get even with Kauffman and at the same time explain away the possesion of the sugar by putting it all on to Kauffmann. " John said that he didn't think he could get very far with lying; that all he wanted to do was to show that he didn't know if the sugar was stolen, and athat he was going to testify that Hart had come to him and wanted his assistance in selling it." Wm. Eagan, Hart's attorney, attacked Mrs. Blake's testimony. " I hate to come in here and impeach her testimony, she being a wife and mother. I had a mother, whom I revered. All of you intelligent members of the jury had mothers, and no doubt you feel the same way about it. Eulogy of Mother " A mother is the most wonderful creation of God. You know that a mother will go through fire and perdition for those she loves, and so I don't blame here for testifying here, though her testimony was false— as hers was." J im Blake, brother of John Blake, testified that Hart threatened to kill John Blake if he dared to testify against him. He said that' H a r t called at the Blake home in LeMars and that they seemed to be in violent dispute at the curb where Hart's car was parked. His testimony was that he heard Hart say: " If you testify against me I'll spill your brains all over the pavement." The witness said that he remonstrated with Hart and said that it would be only the right thing for Hart to furnish Blake with a bill of sale, and that Hart replied: " I will, all in good time." Mrs. O. D. Hart testified for the defense that Mrs. Blake brought a note for her son from John Blake. In his argument Attorney Egan refer red to this testimony. " As this gray- haired lady sat on the witness stand, I wonder what thoughts passed through her mind as she thought of her boy here, whom the state wants to send to prison. Perhaps she thought: " Don't send my boy to prison; I t would drive me mad. Remember, the defendant, He is my darling lad. Picture of Future " If you want to go back among your neighbors— if in future years you may perhaps sit by the fireside, gray- haired and old, with your grandchildren around your knees— if you " ft is a solace to the eyes and a balm to the soul to se such an ex tremely intelligent j u r y of such highcalibre individuals to t r y such an im portant case as this." He referred repeatedly to the extraordinary intelligence, uprightness and beauty of this particular jury. He also said: " In my eighteen years before the bar I practiced for a time in New York, and there was pitted against some of the ablest, most successful lawyers In that great city, but I am compelled to say that Mr. Sturges, your prosecutor ( although I admit that he is- only doing his duty to send this boy to prison) is the shrewdest, most astute and most zealous prosecutor that I have ever seen!" " It 's All Bunk!" County Attorney George Sturges objected several times in Mr. Egan's argument and called for the court reporter to set him right on a number of points which he declared were being taken from outside the record or contrary to the record. When ' his t u r n came for rebuttal h e was " fighting mad" and his rebuttal was said by those who heard it to be one of the best speeches ever made in a court trial here. He bluntly told the jury that Mr. Egan was' " soft- soaping" them with his talk about their unparalleled intelligence. " The way he tries to " confuse you with, evidence that was never given and t o change evidence as it stands on the record shows that he rates your intelligence very low, no matter what he tells you. ... s " As to the defendant here in this case having a mother, every criminal has a mother, as far as I know. We're not trying the gray- haired and entirely worthy mother— we're trying George 1 Hart for a crime he has committed, and your finding must be based on the crime and not on sympathy. If we're going to acquit every defendant just because he can prove he has a " mother you might as well tear down your jails and' prisons— you won't need them any more. " State Came Clean" The defense has tried to make you believe that the state has manufactured evidence to get a conviction. If you're really as intelligent as Mr. Egan : says, you will realize that if we wanted to : manufacture evidence we could easily have provided you with sugar bags on which you could read the Beck company's initials very plainly indeed. But we don'l . do thingsi, that wky 4 in, my of- 1 we ^ oWd » ^* m, rwlUi^^ tlttngStSO^^ away and nothing added. Mr. Egan has tried to make it appear that I am slicker even than those big- city lawyers in New York whom he routed so easily. That was done solely for the purpose of making this unprecedentedly intelligent jury think that I am trying to put something over on them. ' He wants you to think that there is some sinister plot— some big menace that threatens the foundations of American liberties. But I'm sure that this jury knows we've come clean. I'm just a young fellow. - I don't think that I'm a super- lawyer that could fool a super- jury. If you convict Hart it will be not because of flattery or trickery but simply on account of evidence that can not be and has not been refuted." Mr. Egan took the state's witnesses down the line to impeach their testimony. He went on the stand himself as a witness in order to refute the surprise witnesses, Mrs. Blake and J im Blake. HEAD ALMOST OFF Kingsley Bachelor Meets His Death When Part of Harness Gives Way . Kingsley, la., May 3. ( Special) Osmond- Clark, 50 years . old bachelor, was killed as the result of part of his work harness failing as he \ is driving a team hitched to a pulverizer on the Alex Riemenschneider farm 5 miles south of Kingsley about 1: 30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Mr. Clark was using a 4- horse team and had just- finished dinner. He was on the way to the field when the accident happened. It seems that the tugs came loose, letting the tongue drop to the ground, so that Mr. Clarke was jarred from his seat and thrown in front of the pulverizing blades. The horses plunged ahead, dragging the implement over the helpless man's body, which was badly cut. One of the passing blades nearly severed his head, cutting so many bloods vessels t h a t he quickly bled to death. Others on the farm quickly noticed that something was wrong, but arrived on the scene too late to be of any help. / The body was brought to the Derby funeral parlors at Kingsley. Mr. Clarke had been a resident of Kingsley Or vicinity for at least 35 or 40 years. He had been making his home with his half- brother, Wm. Clarke, at Kingsley. 11 YEAR OLD GIRL CALLED BY DEATH Official County Papei Margaret Anna Wellong Dies Heart Trouble— Funeral To Be Held Friday of Margaret Anna Wellong, the 11- year- old daughter of Mrs. Nick Wellong, passed away at her home at 120 Fourth avenue N.

The selection ofithe jury for the trial of Dudley I$ lackburn on the charge of maintaining a nuisance in the southwestern part of the county Wets and Drys Alike Flock To Bandwagon— End Of Wilson Dynasty FORMER LEMARS MAN AT KINGSLEY Rev. and Mrs. Paul Viehe Are Called to Serve Congregational Church Kingsley, la., May 3. ( Special): Rev. and Mrs. Paul Viehe arrived in Kingsley Friday, April 28th. Rev. Viehe took charge of his pastorate a t the Congregational Church Sunday morning. There was a large audience at the services who very much enjoyed their new pastor's talk and hope for a long and successful pastorate. Rev. Viehe comes to Kingsley very highly recommended ; from his partorate at Glencoe, Minn., and his congregation here welcome them very heartily. Mrs. Viehe was at one time a resident of LeMars,. ' TWAS A NICE SOAKING RAIN LAST NIGHT One of the driest Aprils in the memory of Plymouth county's earliest citizens was unceremoniously and thoroughly terminated last night by a soaking rain that continued, with intermissions, throughout most of the night, and left a record of 1.18 inches on the government rain gauge in charge of Henry Newell, observer for the United States weather bureau. The parched ground eagerly soaked up the heavy downfall a t first, but it wasn't long before puddles of water stood everywhere. Grateful nature responded at once and this morning there was a fine crop of dandelions on many lawns. The rain came from the southwest and was threatening in aspect. Proof that it was no idle threat it furnished by the experience of a strip in the southwest p a r t of the county, in the vicinity of Moville, and at Cherokee, where extensive damage was done to property.. The roof was blown off the I. C. roundhouse and a string of cars was reported blown off the track. Reports from Kingsley are that a number of people saw a funnelshaped cloud to the south, which may account for the freakish character of the storm, which kept settling and jumping around, so that the damaged areas are found In widely scattered spots. At LeMars and vicinity there was comparatively little wind and no serious damage was reported. Dealings In Dirt J. W. Feuerhelm to Clara Belle Bechtle, lots 1 and 2, Bolser's 1st Add LeMars.

McAdoo's dry candidate, Senator Walsh of Montana, in the California primary, the Woodrow Wilson influence in the democratic party has been definitely repudiated, and a new spirit rides the saddle and rides it hard, personified by the smiling, redoubtable governor of New York, Al Smith. Senator Walsh, with a wonderful record in congress where he uncovered the republican oil steals, but a dry, was snowed under, receiving only 45,752 votes. Walsh had Me doo's backing, and so complete was Woodrow Wilson's son- in- law's defeat that he was not even elected a delegate to the convention. Reed of Missouri, another outstanding candidate, and a wet, received 57,686 votes, - more than Walsh, but only a little more than a third as many as Al Smith, who is not only wet, but wringing wet, according { o enemies. Smith received 132,006 votes, or more than the other two together, but if Reed had been out of the race Smith would have received most of his votes. The California returns are expected to start a rush for the band- wagon which will result in Smith's nomination by acclamation in Houston. It seems certain that the democratic convention will be the most enthusiastic ever held— more in the nature of a celebration, a gala day. around'; 10 o'clock " t h i s morning.

Hodgson. i Lillian Bogen, Henry Buss, Otto Kuehn, Louis Kaelke, Lila Remer, Pearl Pollock. All the rest of the jury panel was dismissed, indicating that there will be no more jury cases this term. Later— After the taking of testimony had begun, Blackburn decided to take his medicine and changed his plea from not guilty to guilty and asked the court to pronounce sentence immediately. Blackburn was sentenced to 3 months in jail and a fine of $ 300 and costs, and if he doesn't pay the fine he has to serve it out at the rate of $ 3.33 a day.

POSSIBILITY OF HAY SHORTAGE Winter Killing Has Had Disastrous Result On Crops Des Moines, la., May 1.— Possibility of a hay and small grain shortage in Iowa this year was indicated in a warning sent out by the state farm bureau today, urging farmers to check up carefully on the condition of these two crops. " We have reports from many localities showing that newly sown small grain has suffered seriously from the cold weather thus spring," President Chas. E. Hearst of the Iowa Federation declared. " In some sections where grass seed was sown early, the clover has been either killed or seriously injured. Many areas also experienced bad winter killing of clover from last year's seeding. All this points toward the possibility 1 of a hay and small grain shortage this year. ' Farmers in many sections are wisely planning to fortify themselves against such a shortage by planting soy beans, sudan grass and other substitutes, supplementing the available " hay supply. A few have reseeded their fields, but in most cases owners have felt that there was bett e r promise in leaving the 60 to 75 per cent stand than in trying to seed again at this late date " Reports of winter killing have been received from several sections of the state. HIGH FINANCIER HAS MORE TROUBLE Ivan C. Londergan Was Formerly Well Known in LeMars Ivan C. Londergan, formerly of Cherokee county, appears to be destined for a long run in the federal courts. A Dubuque dispatch says: Ivan C. Londergan, former head of the Medical Life Insurance company of Waterloo, was reindicted by a grand j u r y in federal court there. The indictment under which Londergan has been tried was quashed at the same time. Londergan, the former general manager of. the Waterloo company, is to stand trial on charges of having used the United States mail to defraud. Bonds for his release were fixed at $ 8,000. He furnished this amount and was released. The reindictment of Londergan follows the quashing of a previous indictment in which he was charged with having taken p a r t in a fraudulent stock selling scheme in both the Medical Life Insurance company and the Insurance Loan and Investment company. >. ; A demurrer filed by; the defense objected to the inclusion . ofithe two charges under one count of the indictment and the dismissal followed. . One of the j specific charges in the new; indictment is, than Londergan expense at $ 86,000. Actual conditions, it is alleged, show that ex penses were more than $ 22,000 and that there was not four times the amount of cash a t hand necessary to pay the 8 per cent dividends. TO T Child of Akron " Fox Woman" Will Not Be Born In Reformatory The child of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Sheets of Akron will not be born in prison, developments in the district court here yesterday made certain. Mrs. Sheets, who was convicted in the January term of the court hero on the charge of attempted extortion on Miles Cunningham, Akron hardware merchant, on account of threatening letters in which she threatened to kidnap his young daughter^ Dorothy, was sentenced yesterday by Judge B. F. Butler to five years in the state reformatory for women at Rockwell City. Under the state parole system she will be able to get considerable time off for good behavior. Mrs. Sheets' attorneys set the machinery in motion for an appeal to the supreme court, but friends of the family stated that there is no intention of really appealing; t h a t the motion for appeal acts merely as a means of obtaining time until the happy addition to the family can take place, after which the appeal will be allowed to go by default and Mrs. Sheets will start to serve her sentence. The bond under which Mrs. Sheets was released is for $ 2500. She is about 23 years old.

John Poeckes, local painter, has almost made a new place out of the Royal Barber shop. His crew of painters and decorators repainted and varnished the interior, making it look very nice and clean.
