The Accused Man Had Said on the
Stand That Judge Pollock Had Ad
vised Him in the Matter—Case
Holton, Kan., May 14.—When F. H.
Tillotson was on the witness stand
in his own defense tor kidnaping the
incubator baby," he testified that he
nad goue to the chambers of Judge
John C. Pollock of the federal court
before attempting to take the baby
nd that Judge Pollock had told him
that the courts could not make out
a case of kidnaping against him if he
took the baby.
Tillotson's object in this testlmoney
was to show that under advice from
the judiciary and lawyers he had
every reason to believe that in ar
ranging for the kidnaping of Marian
Bleakley he was acting within the law
and had a right to do as he did*
Denied Tillotson's Statement.
There was a stir in the courtroom
when Judge Pollock's name was called
as a witness. He testified briefly, but
in that brief period he gave the most
damaging testimony to Tillotson'g
case that has perhaps been given
Judge Pollock denied positively that
he had told Tillotson that they, the
courts, could not make a case of kid
napping against him. In fact, he testi-
fied that he refused to give Tillotson
Judge Pollock was very impressive
in his testimony.
"Judge Pollock, do you know the de-
fendant?" he was asked. Judge Pol-
lock looked around the room for a
minute with apparently no sign oi
recognition. Finally Captain Tillotson
arose from his chair. The judge
turned his eyes toward him.
"I have seen him once," he said.
"Where?" asked Attorney Atchison.
"In my rooms in Kansas City," an-
swered the Judge.
"Was anything said about the kid-
naping of Marian Bleakley?"
"Something was said about it."
"Did you say in the conversation
'kidnaping is a dangerous and bad
thing, but in this case a case of kid*
naplng could not be made.'"
"1 did not say it," answered Judga
Pollock. "I gave him no advice what-
The state believes that with the Pol-
lock lestimony it has clinched the case
against Tillotson. Tillotson's lawyers
have decided to ask for a peremptory
instruction of acquittal. They contend
that the information says that the
child was taken from Its mother and
that there has been nothing in the
trial to prove that Mrs. Bleakley is
the baby's mother.
