Not a particle evidence found Aga fist him after the most farcical trial Ever witnessed Joseph e. Bell mayor . Was acquitted the jury i it Only out a Short time when they brought in a verdict acquittal. The trial lasted Over in weeks. The state examined Over 650 witnesses and took Over rive weeks time and did not Suc cod in showing a scintilla Evi it = ice against 3ir. Bell. The defense examined Only four witnesses including air. Bell. They knew and everybody who heard the Case knew that the state had a made no Case. It is quite evident that the prosecution was the outcome partisan and personal spite and a Venge. It was instigated and backed by the Indianapolis news and its object was to Blacken the character prominent men who can not be controlled bossed by that Rotten and despicable newspaper. What the next move that filthy Sheet will be can not be surmised. Its Rej it Ort the trial from Day to Day was enough to disgust every fair and decent person.

The state spent about $30,000.00 the taxpayers Good Money in hounding an innocent Man and it was openly stated and offer made to prove that much this Money was spent in schooling a set Low Down scoundrels to offer a perjured a i Dence against the defendant a Camp was maintained Down the Ohio River where these per Jurers were kept and trained and they were furnished with whiskey and iad women As inducements and were paid salaries besides. Did anyone Ever hear such shocking and Nasty conduct and this was done by the sworn officers the state it is alleged. If this is True it certainly should be investigated.
