M'GINN MAY NOT
District Attorney Manning Suc
ceeds in Keeping Him Out
of the Nease Case.
HE MAY. HOWEVER, ACT
A3 FRIEND OF THE COURT
Heated Argument Which Was
Stopped by Judge George De
ciding Against Attorney
Henry E. McGinn's request that ha
be allowed to appear aa assistant with
the district attorney In the prosecution
of M. O. Nease. Indicted for conducting
a poolroom, was denied by Judge George
in the state circuit court this morning,
before Mr. MoOlnn had completed his
argument, although the light to appear
as amicus curiae was granted Mr. Mc
Ginn aa a member of the bar.
The argument of Mr. McGinn prom
ised to last for an hour or two, and the
defendant objected to the delay, as he
was not Interested in that phase of the
queatlon. The court took thle view of
ths matter, and denied Mr. McGinn the
right to appear.
When the case was called Mr. Man
ning informed ths court:
"I desire to object to Mr. McGinn ap
pearing on the part of the state in this
case. Hs Insists upon appearing, and
I want the question settled right now."
"I claim ths tight to appear as coun
sel In this case, because I was Induced
to enter It by the district attorney, and
was secured as private counsel by him
te assist In these esses. Ths district
attorney has openly announced by pub
lished ststements and otherwise that I
would assist in the prosecution of these
gambling cases. It is an Inherent tight
of the court to appoint counsel, and If
necessary set aside the district attorney,
and I proposs to show to this court that
I should be allowed to appear," said
Judge George said: "The court will
have to recognise Mr. Manning aa dis
trict attorney and In control of the case.
This poolroom matter la a mooted ques
tion, which hss never taken definite
form before, and It la like a good many
other cases on first Impressions. Ths
court wants to hear all the law it pan.
Thla court has never yet reached the
conclusion that It knew too much law,
so if Mr. McGinn has any brief a to sub
mit or authorities to cite, the court will
be pleased to consider them; but for the
present It does not look as If It would be
profitable to prolong the argument."
Mr. Manning said he had no objection
to Mr. McGinn appearing as a friend of
the court, but would not allow him to
appear as his assistant.
Argumsnts on tho demurrer to the In
dictment against M. O. Nease for con
ducting a poolroom were made by Judge
Watson. The state opposed them, and
Mr. .McGinn will this afternoon make a
short argument as a member of the bar.
