"Should Mich action be taken by the
committee, the first thing will be to
overlain whether the question to
which the witness refuted to give ans
wer may be regarded a 'material' and
'proper' under the wording of the law.
If they prove to be to, and I have little
doubt they will, in the IlK'ht of the de
eUione handed down by the Court of
Appeal on the construction to be given
to the word 'material' then two ways
ei open for the district attorney,
"He may ta) the matter before a
magistrate, and ek for a hearing which
would reeult either In a dismissal of
the wltaeM or In hie being held for
epet-ial sessions. Tlie offense la a mis
demeanor tad should under ordinary
circumstance go to that court.
"The other way would be to take the
eUdeiwe presented by the committee
before the grand Jury and ak that body
to return an Indictment. If the action
of the jury by favorable to the conten
tion of the committee, the wltne
would then tie tried In general session.

Mr. Jerome return on Monday." '
