of the famous oaaa. Three times has
Powers been convicted of complicity
In the Goebel assassination. . Twice he
haa been sentenced to imprisonment for
life, and once to be hanged.

J decision by Justice Harlan of the
'nlted States supreme court, who ren
ered his opinion that the Jurisdiction
of the etate and not the federal court
waa paramount after the case had three
times gona to tha court of appeals,
which ordered a new trial each time.
The friends of Powers desired to have
tha present trial held before a federal
court, advancing for their argument
tha statement that Powers was being
deprived of his constitutional1 rlghta of
