The Wisconsin Supreme Court Makes Indictments Vnllil, MIUVAUKKK, March 17.— The decision of the supreme court on Friday overruling- the decision of Judge .Johnson in quashinjf the indictments against the Plankinton bank officials makes valid sixty-two indictments of two prand juries which stand against some of Milwaukee's most prominent citizens. The indictments which wore made valid by tho decision were apainst the following: F.. A. Lappon, F. T. Dny, William Plankinton, Jmlfre J. (-!. Jonkiiih, U. S. Elliott, F W, Noyvs, W. 11. llonson, C. 1;. Cluson, John 1!. Koettinjj- and G. C. Trumpft- The men were all indioted for receiving deposits at the South .aide and Plankiuton banks after they knew. those institutions to be inxolrenL The grand jury reindictc-d the officers and directors of the Plankinton bank because the district attorney was afraid the first indictment would not stand. The indicted men were arrested and each was held under $15,000 bond on each indictment. Messrs. Noyea and Elliott refused to furnish bail and went to jail. The same day Attorneys Williams and Ryan secured thslr release under a writ of habeas corpus. The arguments were made before Judge Johnson, who discharged the defendants on the ground that the grand jury had outlived its term when it remained in session longer than during the September term of the court, for which term It was called. Judge Jenkins asked for a separate trial on the indictment of the second grand jury. District Attorney Uaromel dismissed the ease rather than try It separately, as to try It would jeopardize all the other cases. Tho reversal of the decision again gives Sheriff Dunn charge of Messrs. Elliott and Noyes, but they will not be arrested until the supreme court orders are given to the sheriff, which will probably be sixty days hence.
