The Maggio Case


It Came Up Again This Afternoon for a Hearing at Silver City.

     The case of Antonio Maggio at Silver City was called for 4.10 Monday afternoon before United States Commissioner W. H. Newcomb. Maggio demanded a witness whom he said would testify that his language and threats were directed against his own—the Italian government. When told the man was in Texas he stated he was ready for trial. United States Secret Service Agent La Salle addressed the court requesting postponement of the case until next Wednesday which was granted.
     Maggio demanded an attorney, but so far the court has not appointed any one to defend him and practically all local lawyers refused to take his case. Additional warrants were served upon Maggio with the object of delaying the case until the secret service men have full time to collect all information possible.
     Maggie [sic] has lately exhibited a defiant manner, always framing his requests in the form of imperative demand and otherwise showing an ugly disposition. Several demands he made upon United States Commissioner Newcomb were the cause of some little merriment among the assembled spectators.
     Maggio’s attempt to appear shrewd and fight all attempts to discover anything by questioning him was looked upon at first by officials with some degree of uneasiness, but no trouble is being found in getting full information desired from other sources.
