the Leader to say the proceedings
were illegal or irregular, but they

It surely would
have cost no more possibly not
as much. When court conven
ed the State was ready to proceed
with the case, but no little delay
and consequent expense resulted
from the absence of witnesses for
the defense. Another point: If
the evidence was all on the side
of the defense, then the defense
had nothing to fear from a trial ;
in fact "a vindication of this
nature would have brought more
glory to the already more or less
illustrious attorneys for the v de
fense, and at the same time been
of more value to the defendants.
It the defense had a sure thing,
one can hardly understand why
an attorney for the defense did
not turn down the opportunity
to do regulation trial stunts be
hind the barred doors of the
grand jury room and thus give
the admiring populace a chance
to see how he did it. What a
lot of sweetness has been wasted
on the desert air!
The above is from the Lincoln
County Leader. The tone is not
reassuring and the article seems
to contain a fling at the attorneys
for the defense, two of wftm are
residents of this city, " W. S. Mc
Fadden and T. F. Yates. If our
surmise be true that the Leader
desired to smite them and yet
lacked the courage to call their
names, we will state in beiialt ci
these gentlemen that while we
do not claim sainthood for them
we consider them honorable in
in . their attempts to free their
clients.. Surely it could not be
a personal matter to the Leader
that the Greens be convicted?
