The conclusion is justified and the court so finds the fact to be that the reason Why this hidden reassure has not been found is that it does not in concluding his decision. Judge Ami son said referring to the league and the i eague publications the trustee has been permitted to go through the record of All these concerns As with a lighted Candle. He has found no Trace of any Grant of any of the funds or property of the nonpartisan league or its subordinate agencies to or. Townley except a salary of three Hundred dollars $300.00 per month. He has found no Trace of any claim by or. Townley to any part of such funds or such properties except his salary. He has found no Trace of the use of any part of the funds or properties by or. Townley for personal purposes except the accomplishment of the objects of the political party of which he has been Leader. Holds Townley never used league funds a on the contrary the record shows clearly and affirmatively that the nonpartisan league and its subordinate agencies have never granted to or. Townley any part of their funds or property As his personal estate that he has never made any claim to those funds or properties As belonging to himself personally and he has never used them for any purpose except that of a political Leader devoting them honestly to the achievement of the objects of his party.

The league and labor cause has teen greatly strengthened Here by the efforts of the old party machine into custody until commitment papers had been issued but that if they had resolved to postpone the demonstration until the papers were actually out it would never have been held. Or. Van Lear said he would not be surprised if the decision of the prosecution to attempt to collect the fines by civil process does not get very far. There have been cases before he Ray marked in which fines imposed on labor men for contempt of court in injunction proceedings were not collect to repeal the direct primary. On two and a terms not served. Occasions last year the Farmers Saver the primary by amassing great bundles of signatures and carrying the Case to the supreme court. And the fight opened the eyes of Many who had not had Opportunity to learn officials of the trades and labor announced that the plans for the demonstration will not be changed in any respect. Not having been officially informed that the jail is closed to them the four defend a convicted Man refuses to pay a Fine he is at once remanded to jail. It is explained that the present Case is really a civil suit and that before the men can be imprisoned an attempt must be Matte to collect the fines a in any civil action. Attorney for John compbell proprietor of the wonderland theater in whose behalf the fines were assessed Are expert it i to apply to the clerk of the District court for a writ of execution under which the sheriff will be authorized to collect the Pudge ments.
