RAILROAD ABANDONMENT APPROVED County Board Discusses Issue To Validate Refunding Bonds Commissioners Take Up Many Other Matters At Meeting Held Last Eve ning At a special meeting of the board of county commissioners last night the proposition to validate the refunding bonds to be issued by R. E. Crummer and Company was the main subject of discussion, but no steps will be taken until certain changes in the resolution are made. Present at the meeting were Chairman Carl Bervaldi, Commis sioners Wm. R. Porter, Norberg Thompson, Braxton B. Warren, and Nathan Niles. Attorney Ar- V thur Gomez, Clerk Ross Sawyer, Chief Deputy Sheriff Bernard Waite, Representative B C. PaDy, and FERA Director Franklin E. Albert, and Attorney J. Lancelot Lester, representing the Crummer Company. The Reason for the meeting was i 'announced by Chairman Bervaldi who instructed Clerk Sawyer to read the validation proposition, which, as usual, was lengthy, ver bose and in a number of in st. aces required elucidation by either Attorney Gomez or Attor ney Lester. After practically the entire pro posal for validation had been read one sentence was discussed at great length when it was decided to ask that Attorney Lester com municate with the company and ask that the paragraph in question be couched in terms which could be easily understood and which would clarify this particular para graph. Further reading of the valida tion proposition or discussion of it was deferred until the requested changes have been made. Clerk Sawyer was instructed to issue a warrant for SI,BOO to *he credit of the State Board of So cial Welfare to be used in the dirpensing of Old Age Assistance to those persons in Key West qualified to receive it. On motion unanimously carried Attorney Gomez was authorized to attend the next meeting of the Overseas Road and Toll Bridge District, and request that , body to have all future bids on construc tion work for the bridges opened in Key West. It was . hown that Key West can easily accommodate any number of bidders who will attend the meeting when bids are opened and the entire board wanted to go on record as being averse to the opening of bids at any other place but Key West.

Pine Makes Closing Argument In Gomez’s Trial; Case Will Go To Jury This Afternoon Fred Pine, of the firm of Pine| and Giblin, of Miami, was at 3! I o’clock this afternoon still argu ing for the defense in the case of the State versus Rogelio Gomez i in criminal court. He went through the informa-: tion count by count and with in- 1 terjections of comment, caustic 1 i _ 1 or comic, stated in no uncertain j terms that the case had not proven one of the allegations charged in the informat’.cn. He told of the olden days ; when men were once each yeai ( j burnt on a funeral pyre to lurge ! away the sins of the people, how j ! in later days the body of a goat j ; was substituted for that of a man, and from that day on the 1 cry had been that someone was * being made a goat of and in thin, case it was Rogelio Gomez. Produces Ballots Theatrically he produced a number of the absentee ballots' which the information charged ( had been subjected to erasures, J and changes. He handed the] , ballots to the jurors and asked] that they find the erasures or changes and if they did, find the defendant guilty. Following the argument of At-, tomey Pine Judge Dewell intend-! f * ed to read his charge to the jury j after which the case would be with them to find a verdict in accord with the evidence educed from ; the witnesses. i Court convened 9:30 this morn-j ! ing and after the jury panel was ! called and the responses received, ; procedure of taking testimony was re.-umed. There were but two witnesses called. Clerk of Court Ross C. Sawyer and Mrs. Jack Gaiti. who] was summoned from Miami for 1 j the purpose of testifying in the case, and arrived last night. Mr. Sawyer was asked a num

ber of questions relative to the tally books of the June 2 elec-! j tion. The books had been offered, ;in evidence. He also explained ■ that the county was divided in five election*districts comprising; jll precincts, one of which, pre- j i cinct 11, was inactive. Mrs. Gaiti Testifies Mrs. Gaiti was then called to the stand. She testified that she j did not vote in the first primary. ; There was one absentee ballot j cast in her name, was in one of ! the ballot boxes and the envelope signed with her name, but she ; positively said, it was not signed ; by her. i This was the last of the wit-i I nesses for the prosecution and as there were no witnesses to be in- { troduced by the defense nor was the defendant in the matter to take the stand, taking of testi mony ceased and arguments be-! gan. The opening barrage was start ed by Vincent Giblin. for the de-j fense. He outlined the case from j the point of view of the defense, f and gave a clear and conclusive! outline from the defense point of| view. He spoke for about 10 minutes. . He was followed by Attorney; 1 G. A. Worley, who dispassionately j presented the state’s case. His| i arguments pointed out that on several of the charges the accused j was and could be nothing else but guilty. The evidence brought out showed conclusively that a number of persons whose names were s : gn*d to the absentee en velopes, had not voted rhsentee ballots, and some of them were out of the city at the time of the election. Issue Defined The matter at issue was clearly defined by this able attorney and the prosecution’s side of the case! md the charges on which the is | sue was being tried, were pre sented in such a manner as to con vince his hearers that he was con vinced of the defendant’s guilt,. and confidently expected convic tion. Attorney Worley’s summing up of the case was concluded at 11:10. At this time a 10 minutes re cess was ordered by Judge De well. The judge left the court room and upon his return an nounced that the Interstate Com merce Conun ission had granted the plea of the Florida East Ccast Railway to abandon the Key West Extension. For a few minutes the court room was in an uproar with hand clapping and discussion and it was several minutes before order was restored. With the resumption of busi ness County Solicitor Allan B. Cieare began his argument for the prosecution. He prefaced his argument with the statement that the news just given by the judge was such as to make him or any otJaer person in Key West happy.' Then began a clear and concise summary of the proceedings of the case from the time the first witness was called until the. last 1 testimony _ was recorded. The name of each witness was' announced and the evidence educed summarized in a clear andj comprehensive manner which was brief but convincing. Not ono j phase of the testimony as given • on the witness stand was slighted! and while attention was specific-' al’v directed to certain matters which may have escaped the jury,; Solicitor Cieare paid particular at- 1 tention to and stressed those, item? in the testimony which bore directly on the witnesses who averred they had not voted but whose names were signed to en velopes containing ballots alleged to have been voted by them, the witnesses. One case, that of J. F. Pacetti, 4 was particularly elaborated on by the attorney. In this case, it was pointed out, both the accused and the witness were well known to : each other and had been in the habit of chatting when they met. 1 Mr. Pacetti had been asked if he voted an absentee ballot and re plied No. Asked if the signature on the envelope containing the ab-j sentee ballot alleged to have been : voted by him, was his, he again replied No. Could he take oath the signature was not his? He j then replied Yes and continued by saying he was 70 years old and the reason he was able to swear the signature was not his was because ! he had never signed his name as he was not able to do so. Many other items of a convinc-! ing nature were presented to the j jury by Solicitor Cieare who ! brought his arguments to a close t shortly after the noon hour by! asking God to guide the jury in i ariving at a just verdict.

BRINGS MATTER OF DINING SERVICE BEFORE COUN TY COMMISSIONERS Representative B. C. Fapy last night brought to the atention of the county commissioners the 1 matter of the contract recently j granted the Interstate Company] to operate the restaurants of the ( Monroe County Ferry system. j Mr. Papy said that be did not t want the contract for himself, in ! fact the personal equation did not enter into his idea. He simply felt that the contract should be award to a local man or organization. Speaking for the board, Com missioner Wm. R. Porter said that he did not see how any changes could be brought about in the matter at this time, as the con tract had been granted the Inter state Company for one year by Franklin E. Albert, FERA direc tor in Key West, by whom the system was being operated. Com missioner Norberg Thompson con curred. It was suggested by Mr. Papy that passes be issued by the ferry system to State Senator Arthur Gomez and himself and asked that the board of commissioners so in struct Mr. Albert. ; * Clerk Ross C.
