New Bill on Holdups Charge Is-
Returned Against Pair,
"H"m, this looks natural," was the
comment of Circuit Judge Evans
when he looked over the array of
counsel yesterday morning as prep
arations were being made to try
William Lawler and Carl Lind for a
holdup. There was George Graham,
deputy district attorney, appearing
for the state, and Frederick M. Demp-
Bey, ex-deputy district attorney, both
of whom . had served - under ! Judge
Evans when he was district attorney
for Multnomah county.
In a few minutes Judge Evans was
required to disappoint one of his ex
associates In deciding a technical
point of law. Dempsey raised the
question that the indictment accusing
Lawler and Lind of holding up George
J. Smith, proprietor of the Economy
grocery, 614 East Clinton street, on
November 28, 1921, and robbing him
of $122 was insufficient in that it ac
cused the pair of taking the money
from Smith, but not from the "per
son" of Smith.
Judge Evans ruled that the point
wag "well taken" and ordered the in
dictments dismissed. The case was
taken immediately by Graham be
fore the grand jury and a new indict
ment issued, correcting the mistake
in the old. The charge in the first
indictment was "assault and robbery,
being armed with a dangerous
weapon," and in the second, "assault
with Intent to rob."
Trial of the case may not be before
April, due to the congested condition
of the docket.
