Pioneer I The mercury was at a high point EVIDENCE HELD SUFFIGENT TO GOTOTHEJURY Supreme Court Holds Court Here Erred in Ruling. The locally notorious Schreck cases were recalled here last week, when a copy of a recent state supreme court opinion reversing a Kossuth district court ruling for a directed verdict in favor of Otto V. Schreck, charged with conspiracy and extortion threats was received. Otto V. Schreck and his brother Amos M. Schreck were the men who came here to conduct a check, on alleged 'knocking down' by clerks in local business establishments. The Schrecks were accused of forcing some clerks, under threats of prosecution, to pay large sums the clerks did not owe and of converting the money thus extorted to their (the Schrecks') own use. When the Otto V. Schreck case was tried here it was held that the prosecution had failed to supply sufficient evidence to warrant a verdict of guilty, so a verdict of acquittal was ordered. The case was taken to the supreme court by the state, but that court refused to interfere on the ground that only a fact question was involved and the district court was in a better position to assess the. facts, It was then represented to" the"" supreme court that the case was such as required review in order to establish a guide in conspiracy and extortion cases throughout the state, so a rehearing was granted. On reviewing the facts the supreme court came to the conclusion that there was sufficient evidence to warrant submission of the case to the jury and so reversed the order for a directed, verdict. Though this ruling was against bchreck, he cannot be tried again, for under the 'constitution one accused of crime cannot twice be put in jeopardy for the same offense. The result is a triumph for County Attorney Winkeli who was assisted by Jens Crothe, assistant state attorney general. Local Temperature Sunday Highest in Last 21-Yr.
