Bedell, widely known as a member of the firm of Bedell & Bedell, is asking the public to withhold judgment and claims that the charges against him are false and based on a "frame-up." Co-Betvreen Convicts Lawyer. The conviction of Bedell, which places him in danger of a prison sentence and heavy fine, in addition to disbarment, was obtained largely, it is claimed, on statements made by Gene Russell, 22, of Des Moines, alleged go-between in the jury .bribing case.

Bedell and the Chapmans conspired and finally bribed Bert Gaynor, a jury man, to hang the jury in the case and the Chapmans thereby obtained a mistrial., Two hundred dollars was the alleged amount.

Claims Conviction Framed. It is the Spirit Lake lawyer's claim that Russell changed his story after he was "worked on" by federal agents and he declares that the entire case against him is "framed" to shoulder upon him the blame that others should assume for their own acts.

All Mixed Up I have just sent a $400 check to Des Moines, the first quarterly payment of the sales tax. I understand the first 3,000,000 colected goes for relief, i am glad of that, for I am sure that 65% of the people I colected this 1400 from need relief. Of course they will not get back all of the $400 expenses will eat up quite a chunk of it. Every time you pour syrup from one jug into another gome <» it will stick to each jug. But half a loaf is better than no bread. It is nice to know that we are i« get some of it back, After the $3,000,000 is collected the next collection goes against the property tax, or son j et "^° else. If I know what I am talking about, I beiunw the insurance companies are the largest lana o*» ers in this part of the country. They and lind °«° ers that live outside of the state pay no lowu s»w tax. The poor renters and the laboring men tflai :* here and pay 2% on everything they buy are rea»j helping to pa> taxes on property owned D> "- 1 * auce «.ompnnies and others tha; do not live in state. ' The land owner that lives here will pay as sales tax in a year as the reduction on his proi 1 • tax will amount to. I am free to confess I do not understand IW Philosophy of this law, unless it is to make tne richer and the poor poorer. I am quite sure that $400 worth of shoes « stockings would do my customers more gooa any $400 they give me to send to Des Monies. Jimmie Neville The Shoe Man Algo""' 1 " 1
