JoUiffc. tThe trial;'of Will larii Henry Smith, Kansas City man, charged here with forgery, bc^an in the district court late yesterday" afternoon. The state completed its case against ^Smilh shortly after noon: today and tire defense began. It was considered likely that the fiue ..of Smith would rest with the jur- ' ors who are hearing the evidence, by the close of the day._ • •• The state accuses Smith of deliberate Intent to, defraud. The defense deniea intent or an act of fraud. According to statements by counsel for the defendant, it is the claim of Smith that the AmerfcEin Express Company cheques • which he is charged with, fraudulently " using were obtained from a. man named "J. M. Jones" as security for a loan. The "J. M. Jones".Is ?n out qf. town man whom Smith had met. , i • ; It is the assertion of Smith's counsel that as soon as the accused learned that, there was something wrong with the checks. Smith 8f once directed the j return of the - money secured on tlleipaper and this was done. Smith v^ecnm to have cashed two of the clieqiies In this vicinity.

Officers here say that Smitli remarked upon his arrest'last August that he found the express ! rheques under a carpet In a hotel . at Tiilsa. The Myslerlons Mr. Jones. Along with their effort to show that Smith did not tender the eheques with intent! to defraud and that- he came into posse'ssibn ' of them in a legitimate way, th.e defense will endeavor, to convince the jurors that the defendatit i's not a ."bad" man and will intro• diiee depo.^iions relating toV his .good character. Smith has been in jail almost; a. year though bond was tixed. Detectives h .1 said that if the accused should -be^-'released here he woulil be immediately arrested on charges originating at other points and relating to the use of express clieques.. The .state will endeavor to in- nmre about, the mysterious Mr. Jones whonv the defense introduces tntothe case by inference and will ^laim that Jones is a straw man and a nix,th set up to make Smith's ftoty of the cheqiies'appcap plausible. The trial of Sniitb is the first nni regarded as the only jury case for the May term. It was decided by members of tlie bar and Judge Robert B.

'This is contrary to the'spirit and intent of the Eighteenth amendment. "The constitution is a grant of powers. Those powers are . limited and such limits are not to be transcended.
