"the use of arms, except in self defence"

Ordinary Newspaper Abuse.
   Richardson admitted that some of the Miners' Magazine articles were intemperate in tone, but claimed that they were nothing more than ordinary newspaper abuse.
   Senator Borah argued that the articles should be admitted as was done in the Spies case as they showed the enmity of the organization, of which the defendant was an officer, to Steunenberg, and advocated violence.
   Richardson closed the argument. He asserted that in no word contained in the magazine was the use of arms, except in self defence advocated.
   Judge Wood took the question under advisement and court adjourned at 11 o'clock until 2.
