Soattlc, Wash.--Ohnrgln? t h n t the police had subjected his client to days of torture and third degr.'e methods, which Included not'only tno use of a "He Detector" but the Injection of a "truth serum." Attorney Henry day Agnew, representing D enato Karl' Mayer, has obtained a court order restraining Hie city official ·( from further use of such MotJiods Th« ouler caiuo after Prosecutor Kwlng D. OoMn had announced that through the use of the "Me detector" and the "tri'th serum" He had obtained a partial confession from Mayer to the murder of Jntnea ffingene Bas- aett, who has been missing since September 15, ftnd that sheriff's deputies had boon sent to a cemetery In an effort to discover the bodj-. Held as Habitual Criminal. Mayer, who Is being held In Jail here pending his appeal from a conviction aa a habitual criminal, charged that Oolvln and Sheriff Claude 0. Ba- nJek had tortured him for days In an .effort to get him to confess to the murder of Bassett and tell where he baa disposed of the body. He was arrested in California in possession of Bassett's automobile a few days after BngsetT disappeared and was tried and convlcfecl of larceny ol the automobile. Bassett had come to the state from Baltimore, Md. He me 1 Mayer when the latter responded to an advertisement for the sale of ftassett'8 automobile, and the authorities were convinced that Mayer could explain the mystery of Bassett'a dl iBppearance. Colvln said that Majer at first regarded usa of the "He detector" aa a lafk. Use of the contrivance wan con - tlnued for seven days, Mayer being bombarded with questions, most ot them having to do with the whereabouts of Bessett's bot'.y. All questions were answered with a bald "Yea, sir," or "No, elr," until attention waa foqased on certain cemeteries. Smashes Lie Detector. Mayer smashed the "He detector" when he was pressed for answers la regard to the Bothell cemetery, the prosecutor said, and thereafter he was shackled and requires to wealr an "Oregon boot" while b'ilng questioned. By noting the reactions on the reg- Isttirlng device of thd "lie detector" the search for Bnssett'a body was narrowed down to au nin of two square miles, Including both Bothell cemeteries, de«p wells adjacent to one of them, anil a white house on which Mnjfer had paid a $10 rent deposit at the time of Bassett's .llaappearance. The "trufh serum," which was said to produce the effect of an anesthetic by'which the patient la numb In aH faculties except that of speech, was tested hypoderml calif after Mayer became recalltrant. The "He detector" consists of a leather covered pla'o on a chain placed around the suspect's chest to record roujilratlon aud a rubber tube wrapped around an arm to record blood pressure. Reactiotis from both parts of the device are reglatere 1 on a drum of ruled paper which, when completed, la said to show a chart of emotional reactions. Tho "He detector," which IB known scientifically as a pnautno-eardlae sphygmomanometer, was brought here from Jollet penitentiary In Illinois. The "Oregon boot" la a heavy metal boot formerly used v/ldely In the west In transporting prisoners. It so welghta one leg tha- running away la impossible.
