PHOENIX, Ariz., Nov. 23. 4
Two indictments, one containing
four counts, charging Roy Gard
ner, escaped convicted mail rob
ber of attempts to rob the United
States mails at Maricopa, Ariz., on
November 3, and at Phoenix on
November 14 were returned by the
grand Jury In the United States
district court here late today.
Gardner pleaded not guilty to
Dotn indictments.
Immediately after Gardner en
tered his plea to the first indict
ment, his attorney, Carl A. Davis,
asked and received permission to
file a written motion in which
Gardner asked the court to have
a Jury determine his sanity at the
time of the alleged offenses.
The written motion tiled by
Gardner's attorney contained a
statement by Mrs. Davis which
declared that the defendant was
not guilty of the offense charg
ed against him, for the reason
that at the time referred to in the
indictment he was mentally un
sound and did not have a criminal
intent." . i
Attorney Davis! asked that ihe
case not be set for trial immc-d
lately but that a delay of a week
or ten days be granted.
"I understand that you desire
this delay!" said Judge William
H. Sawtelle. whd presldedj "in
order to secure the presence ot
witnesses from outside the Juris
diction of this court and for that
purpose alone." j
"Yes, your honor," replied Mr-Davis:
Both cases tfcen were set for
trial on December 5.
Thomas A ! j Flynn, United
States district attorney, previous
ly had announced that hi office
was Teady to proceed "with," the
case immediately. ' "
After the cases had beeii'set
for trial, Mr, f FJynn " asked that
both case's be tried by the same
jury at the same "time. To this
Mr. Davis objected and the court
announced that it would rule lat
er on .this point.
When asked to plead to the sec
ond indictment charging Gardner
wun naving committed a robbery
at Maricopa, the defense asked for
time to examine the indictment
before entering a plea. The court
said that a plea of not guilty
could be entered today bat that it
would allow the defense two days
to file any demurrer to the indictr
ment. With 'this understanding
the plek of not guilty was entered.

ed with the completion of evi
dence of Dr. Asa W. Collins, med
ical expert for the defense, after
three hours of examination.
Adjournment was taken over
the Thanksgiving holiday.
l ihbact On Stand
The principal evidence was of
fered by Fred Fischback, a -guest
at the Arbuckle party, and Ar-
buckle's room mate at the hotel
St. Francis, during the period re
lating to the trial and Dr. Collins
who told the causes of injuries,
similar to those suffered by Miss
Rappe. Fischback denied that
Miss Rappe complained of pain
after the injuries were alleged to
have been inflicted by Arbuckle.
lie said, however, that he raised
her in a manner intended to re
lieve her and that he assisted in
giving her a cold bath for the
same purpose.
A previous statement which ho
admitted he made to the distri'
attorney was introduced and in
it he was alleged to have said:
"Miss Rappe appeared to be in
agony." He said the statement
evidently had quoted him incor
rectly. Fischback said he had
known Arbuckle for several
months, but had not met him
socially or in a business way but
a few times.
Honored by Arbuckle
Mrs. Fischback and myself
were entertained by Mr. Arbuckle
once or twice and considered it
an honor," he said.
Fischback admitted having in
vited Miss Rappe to the hotel
party in which the fatal injuries
were said" by the prosecution to
have been inflicted. He was on
an automobile ride while the
party was in progress, he said,
and returned to find Miss Rappe
hysterical on a bed in Arbuckle"?
"She was making a noise," he
testified, "but I don't know
whether it was moaning 01
screaming or what sort of noise
it was."
Expert Called
Most of his testimony concern
ed the initial relief measures ap
plied to Miss Rappe after the
biadder rupture which constitut
ed her injuries and. caused her
death four days later. The prose
cution alleges' Arbuckle caused
these injuries through the applica
tion of force.
Dr. Collins was called by the
defense as an expert on bladder
ruptures. He testified that spon
taneous ruptures of the organ
Were possible when it was over
distended. In such a condition
he organ might be rent by a hy3
erical outburst, alcoholism, or

According to evidence adduced.
liss Rappe was hysterical, and
howed evidence of intoxication
nd was given a cold bath on tha
ccaslon of the party.
Dr. "Olva Kaarboe testified for
he defense that he attended Miss
Rappe after her supposed Injuries
and found her suffering no pain.
The general interest in the
trial was greater today than on
any other day since its begin
ning. The seats were all occu
pied 15 minutes or more before
each session, and hundreds wait
ed In the corridors. Arbuckla
seemed to take little interest in
the proceedings.
A feature today was a visit by

dant to the Hotel Et. Franci3

WASHINGTON. Nov. 2?,. A 10
per cent reduction in carloa l
freight rates on farm products,
coupled with reduction in railroad
wages, was proposed by the car
riers to the interstate commerce
commission today as a sub.'tituta;
for the order of the commission
dated 'October 20 reducing; rate3
on hay and grain shipments.
The substitute schedules will
be effective "for an experimental
period of six months." The com
mission was asked to reopen Us
decision of October 20 in order
that argument might be given in
behalf of thov other proposal.
Any reduction in rates made
since September 1, 1920, would
"constitute a part of this 10 per
cent under the railroad's sugges
tion. "The effect of this proposal."
said the application, "will be an
immediate reduction in carload
rates on the products of agricul
ture and the products of animals,
but, as son as. and to the extent
that a reduction in wage3 is ob
tained from the labor board on
the proposed application, a fur
ther reduction in rates (except as
meanwhile put into effect) to be
distributed among users of trans
portation in such manner as this
commission may determine.
"The proposal thus deals im
mediately with the needs of agri
culture and undertal es to make
further reductions not confined to
agriculture as soon as further re
ductions are made posssible."
"Your petitioners ' the applica
tion continued, "submit that, if
there is to! be a reduction :n rates

there seems to be little justifica
tion for confining such redaction?
to grain, grain products and hay,
or to any particular section. The
economic reasons in favor of re
ductions apply with equal force
to other products of the farm and
to other Sections.
"Your petitioners, in view of
the conditions and of the special
needs of the transportation in
