Mayor Harry P. Cain (standing, right) listens to counsel E. K. Murray's case on April 30, 1943, during the Einar Langseth impeachment hearing. From L-R, Corporation Counsel Howard Carothers, E.K. Murray (standing), Public Safety Commissioner Einar Langseth, Public Utilities Commissioner R.D. "Bob" O'Neil, Finance Commissioner C. Val Fawcett (standing), Public Works Commissioner Abner Bergersen and Mayor Cain. Mr. Murray, counsel for Commissioner Langseth, refused to allow the commissioner to be the first to testify at the trial. Mayor Cain had pressed for the impeachment of Commissioner Langseth on charges that he had permitted open gambling in Tacoma. Attorney Murray claimed that these charges were not sufficient, from a point of law, to justify removal from office. E.K. Murray was a former city attorney and was one of the freeholders who drew up the (then) city charter in 1927. He was successful in his defense of Mr. Langseth.

City Clerk Genevieve Martin, Tacoma Times staff reporter William Simmons and Secretary to the Mayor, E.M. Wetherall, listen to the testimony. Mayor Cain questioned Mr.Langseth at length after he had been sworn in as a witness. The mayor had called several witnesses and testified himself in an effort to prove to the other three council members that the commissioner had permitted open gambling on a wide scale. Counsel for the defendant, E.K. Murray, waived final argument, thereby thwarting the mayor's plan to summarize the case. Commissioner Langseth retained his position with a 3-1 vote.
