RICE MURDER CASE.
Defendant's Counsel Says Prosecution
. , Has Shown No Motive. -
. NEW . TORK, March 24. Robert M.
Moor began today the aummlng op
for the defense In the' trial of Albert
T. Patrick, accused, of the murder of
W. M. TUce. In opening he said the
prosecution had shown uo motive for
the killings of Rles'by Patrick,' because
Patrick, under the ,1900 will, was, not
to. Inherit. Rice'a millions for himself,
but for the carrying out, of a trust
JoneiT statement that Rice was killed
at the direction "of Patrick, the laywer
contended, was unworthy of belief, be
cause Jones had a motive In making
that statement. r
Mr. Moore laid stress on the wording
of the will of 4894, which, he declared,
gave far greater power ovr the R4ce
J estate to Captain Baker, than the -1909
will gave to Patrick. He said the Rice
Institute, of Houston.; Tex., was merely
a scheme to head off the Holt litigation
over the will of the - deceased Mrs.
Rice. Patrick's L conduct., throughout,
Mr. Moore said, was that of an honor
able and Innocent man.
