yesterday and today as to the exact wording of the ruling of Judge C H Kelley in district court by which the case against R D Mason the police officer charged with accept ing a bribe from Greeks to procure the passing of beer that the text of the decision is of interest There has been some differences of opinion as to what the court said regarding the assumption for the purpose of arguing the motion that tho defendant in fact been prov ed to have accepted money from the Greeks A transcript of the notes of Court Reporter George A Blake who re corded the remarks of Judae Kelley is as follows iu the District Court of Iowa in and for Cerro Gordo County State of Iowa vs R D Mason Defendant Ruling of the Court on Motion of Defendant Oct 4 By the Court The indictment in this case is based upon Section 4884 of the Code which provides among other things that if any po liceman or police officer receivte any money or other valuable thing as a consideration or inducement for omitting or delaying to perform any duty pertaining to his office he shall he fined not exceeding or imprisoned in the county jail not exceeding six months or both fine and imprisonment at the discretion ot the court At the close of the evidence for the state the defendant has filed a motion to quash the indictment and dismiss the case for the among others as the claims that the duty performed by this defendant was not one which pertained to his office For the purpose of the motion we must as sume I think that the evidence shows Slearly that this defendant at the time in question was a police officer whether de facto or de jure it is immaterial he was acting in that capacity in whatever he did and what he did I think is to bo weighed as though he a police officer whether he did receive any appointment specifically or not that is immaterial he assumed to act as a police officer and should be con sidered and treated precisely the same as any other officer of the1 forco 1 think also that the evi dence shows conclusively and iu fact that point is conceded by the filing of the motion that the defendant did receive money from these Greeks substantially as they claim Now we have heard only one side of the case and it would not he right to say as an absolute fact perhaps that such was the ecinuUiOuy but icr the purposes of this motion it must be conceded I think that this defend ant did receive money from these parties as an inducement to O K these beer shipments this office of beer censor is one that I never heard of before MAKE FURTHER PROGRESS IN REGION OF MORVAL S CLAIM TODAY PROGRESS IN

induce him to refrain from tho performance of any duty which per tained to his office This word pertained is an important word in that connection Now the fact that he assumed to O K liquor ship ments to some parties and assumed to refuse to O K some shipments to other parties is absolutely mean ingless His O K would not pro tect tho railroad company If in fact the shipment was to what we designate an improper party and if a delivery was made to such im proper party by tho railroad com pany his act would simply ho with out effect and the company would nol be in in way protected Now while I presume would have no disagreement as lo the mor al phase of this question if in fact this defendant did receive money as an inducement whereby he O Kd shipments which he might not oth erwise have done the moral phase of il is precisely the same it is not a crime bill with that nothing to do There in one matter which J think perhaps 1 ought to suggest here and that is Ibat under Ihe evi dence
