Another charge of mui0efing Antonio Castania is al- so laid against him. The accused is a young Italian and does not look the part of a hardened criminal or of a troublesome charac- ter but rather. of one of strong pas- sion and determination when aroused. He sits in the docket and follows very, closely every word of the evi- en. He was drying himself when the two brothers Siilvator Castania, gen- erally known as Sam, and Antonio came in. The f0rmer asked Angelo how long he had in America.' and was told seven years, whereupon Antonio asked him if in ail that time he had not- met some one "to.get a last for his shoes."
