stand yesterday in the bribery
trial of Clarence S. Darrow, to
impeach the testimony of Frank
E. Wolfe and C. O. Hawley, two
of tlie important defense witness-
F. V. Owen, who was a mem-
ber of the city fire commission
when Hawley was on the same
board, testified that Hawley's gen-
eral reputation for truth and ver
acity was bad. Rogers attempted
to show that Owen and Hawley
had political differences, and that
Owen had been charged with graft
ing. The witness indignantly de-
nied that charges had ever been
made against him.
Hawley had testified that he
was the man who h#.d telephoned
to Mr. Darrow on the morning of
Bert H. Franklin's arrest, request-
ing him to meet him at Socialist
headquarters. In this manner,
the defense accounted for the
presence of Darrow at the scene
of Franklin's arrest.
The street car conductors were
called to testify concerning the
usual time at which Frank E
Wolfe arrived in Los Angeles from
his home in a suberb. Wolf"?

city on the same car with Darrow
