BOTH SIDES PLAN TO DEVELOP ALL FACTS Detectives, If Called As Wit- nesses, Will Be Assailed on Past Records COLUMBUS, O., June Rodney J. Diegle, of Sandusky, sergeant-at-arms of the senate, will be placed on trial next Mon- day for alleged solicitation of a bribe. His will be the second trial since Vie- boodle expose and great interest attaches to it for the reason that it will be the first test of the famous dictagraph of the Burns detectives. Diegle is indicted jointly with Sen- ator L. R. Andrews of Ironton and demanded a separate trial. The in- dictment-charges that, with the as- sistance of Diegle. F S. Harrison, a Burns operative, paid to Andrews while the dictagraph was on the job The money is alleged to have been for the purpose of influencing Andrews- on the Cetone mutual insurance bill The prosecution has not announced its purpose to put the Burns detec- tives on the stand. Anticipating that the-Buras-men would be star witness- es for the state, other detectives have secured for the men under indictment what is claimed to be proof of ques- tionable transactions by the Burns op- eratives to be used in impeaching them as witnesses It is expected that in INSISTS STEPMOTHER GA VE HER THE POISON Girl's Condition Has Become Worse And She May Not Re- Of Mrs. Hen kle's First Husband To be Exhumed an d Analyzed.

Way is buried at Wheeling, W. Va., where he was seized with con- vulsions and died the next day, presumably of lead poisoning. The condition of Miss Henkle to- day took a change for the worse and she is now gradually losing control of her loiter limbs and hei left hand Physicians serious doubts if she will recover A well defined rumor became cui- rent today connecting the name of a local phjsician with the ease. He is declared: to fmnished the poison to Mrs. Henkle that she is alleged to have administered to her step-daugh- ter. Detective Matthews lefused to comment on this phase of the case but admitted that fie is tracing down recent sales of arsenic both in this city and at Columbus. Mrs Henkle now awaits action of the grand juiy She asserted that she had given her step-daughter every oare and in replj to this, Miss Henkle said: "It makes me laugh to hear what my up and down the stairs a hundred times a day waiting on me and wash- ing all my bhe said "She did wait on me a great part of the time, but I would just as little had sone one else do the job.

Should Diegle escape, he would be re-tried on similar ioint indictments against Senators George K. Cetone of Dayton and I. E. Huffman ot Sutler county. A not guilty veidict for gle would not mean the acquittal of Andrews. The Diegle tnal- will be followed immediately by the second trial of Representative George B Nye of Pike county. He will face the new indictments for alleged solicitations on the bill to protect quail, in which local business men are the prosecu- ing witnesses. Stanley J. Harrison, assistant sen- ate sergeant-at-arms, is indicted joint- ly with Nye in these .cases. Harri- son has demanded a separate trial. He is represented by Attorney Charles L. Selzer of Cleveland. The state is confident of a verdict different from that of acquittal rendered bj the first Nye trial jury. It is possible that oth- er bribery trials may be called im- mediately at the conclusion of the second Nye trial. Senator T. A. Dean of Fremont is the only one arrested as a result of the last batch of in- dictments, who has not been arraign- ed. He is expected to appear the lat- ter part of the week. Judge D F Pugh and ex-Congress- man Emmett Tompkms tomorrow will begin their work of probing leaks or important secrets about the bribery grand jury's work Their instructions from the court direct them to go into the entire subject.
