(Eitabllihed July 4, 1872) HUTCHINSON, KANSAS, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 12, 1924 NO. ll.v ONLY QUESTION OF FACTS FOR THE HILL JURY Court Instructs Twelve Men to Ifnor* "Expert!." CASE GIVEN TO JURORS Judge Hold* That Mere Fact Fruit Juice* Contain Alt cohol Not Sufficient Baltimore, Nov. 12.—Charging the jury In the trial of Rcpresonlii- tlve John Philip Hill, In tho United Btates district -court, for aliased • ''Violation ot the Volstead net, Judge Morris A. Soper directed the jurymen to ignore the definitions ot intoxication as expounded by Dr. • -Harvey W. Wiley, pure food expert, and Dr. Howard A. Kelley of Ilnltl- iiiove. Those witnesses testified yesterday that cider with 2.70 per cent alcohol and wine with 11.04 percent alcohol nro intoxicating. Jfe aHo told the jury to find Col. Hill" not guilty on the fifth nad elxth counts of the indictment •which charge him with maintaining a common nuisance at bis home, The testimony, the judge said, did not bear out these charges and ho therefore dlttmUssed them. Judge Soper then said: A Question of Fact. "Tho only things whlcji you have to determine in this case are questions of fact which are narrow and few. There Is no question about the manufacture and possession ot the cldor and wine. "The defendant adfhlta those charges, "The question Tor yon to decide Is whether the articles tho defend•ant manufactured and possessed are as described In the Indictment; that is: you must decide whether the fruit julco that he manufne. • tnred was wine and was intoxlcat '• ing In fact." Iflnore Experts' Testimony i Judge Soper then told the jurors they were not to accept the definition ot Intoxication as given yesterday by Dr. Howard A. Kelly, mid • Dr. Harvey W. Wiley, who said that any omuunt of alcohol, no mat. ter how small, produces some do- tree of intoxication. Tho standard ot Intoxication •which the jury should have In mind Judge Soper said, is that produced • by a beverage ' which contains enough alcohol to Intoxicate a nor- uial man when drunk In Buch quantities as a wan is able lo drink. . Intoxication, the judge added, Is what tho layman knows us bolns drunk. Refuses State 's Request. When Judgo Sopor had completed his charge. District Attorney 'Woodcock, asked him to Instruct the jury that tho burden ot proof rested on Col. Hill to prove that his fruit juices were not inloxlcat- • Ing in fact and that it was not incumbent upon the government to prove that Ihey were Intoxicating. This, Woodcock argued, is provided for In section 'i'i of the nn- ' tionnl prohibition act. Judge Soper.. however, declined to take Mr. Woodcock's construction ot the law. and refused to so charge the jury. Judge Sopor's chnrga to the Jury proceded tho argument In the case, which was opened by Arthur W. Machen, for the dofense. Mr. iMachon told tho jury it was not John Philip Hill who was on trial, "but tho last vestige of American liberty." Woodcock objected, and Judgo Sojier told Muchon he could not make an untl-prohl- bltlon speech In court.
