tion from the public than had any of
Jate in tho Municipal Court and in the
three days in which it was tried, the
courtroom was crowded. Division of
opinion among the visitors was so
trong that occasional arguments all
hut called for rebukes from the court.

ent of the Bureau of Public Safety for
Women, did not take the witness stand

the "conspiracy" chargo was introduced
The case opened yesterday with Dr.

"If women of Mrs. Baldwin's posi

not above reproach whom she can
use to tear down a character, if she
can get away with It, which one of
you men are not subject to a 'frame

"Dr. Hegele is not prosecuted, but
persecuted," he continued, "and has
been for a period of three years. This
case is a frame-up.' No one of respon

man who has already suffered thou

Judge Earl C. Bronaugh addressed
the jury briefly, saying that it was the
first time in 23 years' practice that he
liad stood before a jury in a criminal
case, and that he did this time because
of a sense of outrage at the attack on
Jiis personal friend, Dr. Hegele.
Strong's brother, Frederick H. Strong,
as foreman of the grand jury, has de
clared that the changes are Impera

get the improvements we have asked."
