He told a
straight and plausible story, but
made the mistake of denying much
that had been proved beyond con
troversy. The mucb-talked-of per
feet alibi proved in reality to have
so many holes in it that it w.as evi
dently entirely disregarded by the
jury. Frank Vaughn, who was
brought in from the pen by the
prosecution did not make a good
impression, and though hi» u -
mony was important his manner
spoiled its effect. Ferrari also made
a bad impression by balking and
denying everything when first

he came in the next day to tell the
truth, as he asserted, his testimony
lost much of its force.
Some are hoping that, now that
Miller is convicted, he will do some
more “ talking” and that some clue
may be obtained from him as to the
others engaged in the robbery. The
story is that it was only by the
