said the question raised by the govern

can be acted on.
Donald It: Richberg. attorney for
iB. M. Jewell and John Scott, strike

mand of the government attorneys
whether a statement which he brand
jed "criminally libelous" printed in

Judge Wilkerson said he had not
seen the statement, but would read the
copy produced from the Chicago Trib

ers- attorney said the statement "libel
ously" attributed to his clients' acts
ot which they had no knowledge.
