Of .Sergeant-at-Arms On Trial COLUMBUS, O., June case of Rodney J. Diegle, of San- dusky, senate sergeant-at-arms, will not be knocked out on tj'ie technical points raised by the de- fense. Judge E. B. Kinkead this morning overruled the motion of the defense to instruct the jury to return a verdict of "not guilty." This means that the defense must submit its evidence to the jurors. Arguments on tj'ie motion had con- tinued for two days. The jury was called in as soon as the decis- ion was announced and the trial proceeded. In his decision, Judge Kinkead that as' there was evidence of ularity going on in the legisla- the state was perfectly justified laying a trap to catch anyone and that the testimony thus secured, in- eluding that of the dictagraph, was valid_againsi_those Involved.

Developments in the Diegle trial at Columbus, Wednesday, took on added Sandusky interest with the calling of Sanduskians as char- acter witnesses for the defendant. It would be no surprise if former political differences are aired be- fore f.he end is reaqhed. A ques tion asked of William Dehnel con- csrning an alleged conversation cr with W. H.

The defense sought to show by this vitness that Cetone and Hoffman had fried to have the bill acted on favor- ably before the appearance on favor- detectives. There were num- aerous. objections by the state but the Iwitness was permitted to state that ICetone was the author of the bill and pat Huffman and Cetone had spoken to him before April 2G, asking for a neeting of the committee to take ac- ion on the Cetone bill. Judge A .B. A'orris, of Marion, for- tterly on the common, pleas bench and a circuit, judge on the third cir- cuit; 'was called as a character wit- ness fSr Diegle. The state objected many years, and that his reputation was as the others stated. Other witnesses were also asked concerning his character and said that it had never been questioned. The statement of Attorney Connor that the note left by Senator Andrews at the Chittenden for Detective Har- rison would acquit Andrews has proved a startling development. "That note left at the Chittenden for Harrison by Senator Andrews will acquit this was the surprising statement made by Connor. This is the first direct information disclosed by Diegle's attorneys, as to what their defense is to be. The note, stating that Andrews was leav- ing Columbus for his home in Iron- ton, and would return and see Har- rison Monday, was left at the Chit- tenden with the clerk for Harrison, it was signed by Andrews, and it was admitted by the defense that the note is genuine. It also stated that Andrews had gone to the Neil house through a (Continued on Page 2) WASHINGTON, June no advance information has giv- en out of the report by the bureau of j corporations on the steel trust, it is i understood here today that the report Dpnipc will show that tone trust controls uii-, mined sixty percent of all the steel business manufacture; seventy percent of the rail, ninety percent of i the tubes, and eighty percent of the If Susan B.

UIDBSilNIMI The terrific nature of the two explosions that sent the Maine to the bottom of the harbor at Havana, is proven by this picture. As will be seen, the forepart of the ship was demolished, to say nothing of the de- struction wrought elsewhere. This picture is of particular interest, inasmuch as it is the first that shows the parts below what was once the bridge. It was through these ports that entry was recently obtained into the wreck, and some human remains and the broken sword supposed to belong to the captain of the ill-fated cruiser were recovered. General Blxbey, in charge of the work, says the real cause of the explosion will nev- er be known.
