INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Dec. 24.
Kerns, who today argued in ithe
trial of the laborites, this afternoon
declared that the charges against
Tveltmoe and Clancy were ridiculous.
"These two men are charged with
dynamiting the Times offices in Los
Angeles," said Kerns, "but yet they
were not indicated under the Juris
diction of the California courts. The
volume of evidence presented to date
has nothing, whatever, to do with
'the case at Issue. As I understand j
the case the men ore charged with'
Illegally conspiring to transfer dynn-1
mite, yet from hearing the evidence ;
one would naturally think they were I
being tried for destroying the Times ;
office. The charge Is ridiculous." :
Kerns opened the arguments for
the defense, and in preliminary du-:
clared that the government's case!
was circuinstantlnl. The uncorro-
borated portions of Mcllanlgnl's rd-j

and every proposition called to the

The first question to come up for
consideration was that of selecting
a councilman to fill the vacancy
caused by the resignation of Robert
Farnsworth, of the first ward. Re

tition, in which H. M. Bullwlnkle was
endorsed as the logical man to as-

dignant. "I cannot understand
why Mayor Micelli should con-
tlnue to 'knock' the very men
who are attempting to build up
the town." said Mr. Perkins,
"and most especially the men
who have taken an active in-
terest in Improving the present
fire department. I must say
that I am disgusted with his
conduct. The report submitted
at last evening's meeting of the
council was an
