Danville. 111., Feb. 14. (Special.)
At the end of a turbulent scene, the
like of which has seldom before been
staged In an Inquisitorial chamber,
State's Attorney John H. Lewman was
ousted from the Vermilion County
grand Jury chambers this afternoon
by a. vote of 12 to 11.

It rent the Inquisitorial body Into two
warring factions and henceforth the

"While the chambers were still buzz

after the vote which dispensed with
Lewman's service, the "standpatters"

of voices In heated argument.
Foreman Isaac Woodyard pounded
vigorously on his table for order with

two warring factions arrayed them
selves on opposite sides of the room.
'I'll put the question," shouted the
banker-foreman, anger blazing In his
eyes. "Shall this investigation go to
the bottom or shall .we adjourn?"
Immediately there was a near-riot.
Order was finally restored and a ballot
taken. The vote stood 17 to 6 for a

The scene surrounding the ousting of
Prosecutor Lewman was dramatic. A
witness had been on the stand testify

frauds." Lewman had asked him per
functory questions, such as his name,
address and business and then turned
him over to the grand Jury to be ques
tioned. From all corners of the room
came questions. They were disjointed
and the witness merely lay back and
"took it easy" .under the Ineffectual
fire. The Jury looked to the prosecutor
fpr aid, but he was enjoying the situa
tion Immensely and made no attempt
to give legal help.
