RA.V FRA.VCISCO. Oct. :. Special.)
Pr. John Grant Lyman, on seeing
th n-w that the chief witness asainst
h!m on tl.e fraud charge in Ix An-pel-s
is dead, this morning brsran a
aiWullr-planned local battl dexlxned
to frfi him from the charge of con
fplracy to effect hi escape from the
Federal custody.
From courtroom to courtroom in the
postofrice builiilnc; he limped today,
resting his weight on his crutches,
which he still handles unskillfully, ap
pearing before two .magistrates.
Throughout the ordeal his face bore a
more cheerful expression. In marked
contract to the air of gloomy stoicism
which seemed stamped upon It at his
appearance three days ago. Lyman first
was taken Into the I'nited (States Dis
trict Court to plead to the conspiracy
charge, guarded by I'nited States Mar
shal Elliott and a phalanx of deputies.
Ills attorney. Carroll Cook, asked the
court's permission to (lie a demurrer
to the Indictment and submit authori
ties. This was granted and one day
was given Attorney took to presen
his authorities and one day U th
I'nited States District Attorney's offlc
to reply.
Attorney Cook Intimated that ha
would make the contention that there
was no authority In law to place Dr.
Lyman In the Providence Hospital In
Oakland, from which the escape re
suiting In the alleged conspiracy took
place, and that on this ground alone
the indictment must fail. At the con
elusion of the brief hearing In the Dls
trlct Court. Lyman was taken before
United States Commissioner Krull for
a hearing on the removal proceedings
to Los Angeles, where Lyman Is wsnte
on a charge of using the United States
malls to defraud customers In a Fan a
ma land deal.
Lyman and his counsel learned
of the death of L. R. Smith, secretary
of the Panama Development Company,
who actually signed the letters whic
T.yman Is accused of sending through
the malls to Induce customers to pay
him for land to which he had no valid
Smith died at sea on the way from
rinimi on the day Lyman effected hi
second sensational escape from ' Fed
eral custody. It Is believed that th
loss of Smith as a witness may pre
vent the conviction of the promoter of
the Los Anreles charge. However, tn
TVtral authorities do not despair of
landing Lyman behind the bars and
rhirrn mar be brought against him in
Kevada or some other scene of hi
financial activities If the prosecution
in California fails.

not be deceived: "I am afraid you
can't stand the gleam. Mr. Black. Why
don't you say you have dyspepsia and
be done with It? You'll always have
