ALABAMA JUDGE SCORES PRINTED JURY CRITICISM Delays Negroes Cases Claims Trial Would Not Be Fair DECATUR Aia April 17 Trials of eight Negroes charged with attackingtwo white women on a freight train near Scottshoro Ala were postponed indefinitely to day by Judge James E Horton after he scored a purported criticism of Alabama jurymen in a published statement attributed to Samuel Liebowitz chief defense counsel The action came after Judge Horton sentenced Heywood Patter son first of the Negroes to bo re tried and convicted to die in the electric chair June 16 Heads From Paper Judge Horton from the bench road from the Decatur Daily pub lished here a statement from At torney General Thomas E Knight Jiv of Alabama taking issue with a purported statement of Liebowitz as printed in the New York Herald Tribune This printed statement quoted Liebowitz as follows If you ever saw those crea tures those bigots whose mouths are slits in their faces whose eyes pop out at you like frogs whose chins drip tobacco juice bewhisk cred and filthy you would not ask how they could do it iResponse toQnestion This statement waspurported to have been made in response to a question as to how the jury trying the Negro Heywood Patterson found him guilty on Sunday April Knight in his reply printed in the Decatur paper had said If this statement was made by LiebowitE it can only be taken as a wail of a loser particularly in view of the fact that in his address to the jury in the Patterson cause he lauded the people of Mor gan county and the members of the jury to the skies Judge Horton said Made Littlo Difference I do not know whether the lead ingcounsel for the defendant made the statement imputed to him Judge Horton said I am not stat ing that he did but so far as it might influence this trial it could make little difference whether he actually said it or not The effect will be the same The published statement was uncalled for It was addressed to a panel of highly in telligent jurors and men who wished to do what was right fn the case The statement of itself of ne cessity must make impossible any just and impartial verdict The ac cused Negro must be a victim of thisstatement His leading attorney would be a millstone about his neck No court regardful of its duty to see that trials must be fair and impartial could under such baneful influences permit the trial of this case to proceed at the present time It therefore becomes the unques tioned duty of this court at the present time to enter of its own motion a continuance of this case until such time when in its judg ment a fair and impartial trial may be had Will Rogers SANTA MONICA Cal April 17 the whole country is all agreed that we are headed to ward the feed trough and since the members of congress have been so fine
