Thet Came to Blows. Councilman J.
H. Shields, of the St. Johns Council, and
J. Boyd, who lives at Llnnton, had a row
on the front end of a St Johns car Tues
day evening, when they came to blows
and clinched, but were separated before
they damaged each other. A conversation
over the deadlock. In the Council started
between Shields and Boyd. This grew
quite bitter on both sides, Boyd made
some verey pointed remarks about the
part Councilman Shields had been taking
in the factional squabble; Shields resent
ed this, and the men came to blows. The
rpaco in the vestibule of the street-car
was altogether too limited for the fight to
take on a serfous character, and after
hugging each in a somewhat affectionate
manner in the crowd, they were separated
and made to behave themselves for the
remainder of the trip home.
Suit for Commission Dismissed. In
the suit of Charles K. Henry, a real ts.
tate dealer, against J. H. Peterson, to

Henry, yesterday asked for and was
granted a voluntary nonsuit by Tudge
Sears. Wells Fargo & Co. bought the
property for $100,300. Mr. Mallory took a
nonsuit because the proof was different
from what he expected, and a new com
plaint will be filed containing different al
legation. Rountree & Diamond have also
sued Peterson for a commission of
S5000 for effecting the sale of the

"Whereas, Is is a fundamental principle
among the Patrons of Husbandry that the
rights of its members are equal. Irrespec
tive of sex, and, whereas, we have found
this principle to result in good in our or
ganization and believe It "would be bene
ficial In the larger organization of the
state, therefore, be it resolved, that we
welcome the opportunity to show loyalty
to this principle afforded by the referen
dum vote, to be taken next June unon the
question df extending the elective fran
chise to women."

thorne avenue, nt its Intersection with

by a car. His horse was killed, and he
alleges that he was seriously Injured and

the lawful rate of eight miles an hour.

HE DID NO WRONG
He and Biggs Lay Burden of
the Defense on Dr.
ALL ARE ON THE- STAND
Defendants In Land-Fraud Case Are
Striving; to Show That Xo Con
tract Was Made to Buy
Two of the defendants. -In the land-fraud
case, Gesner and Biggs, have completed
their tales to the Jury in the Federal
Court, and Representative Williamson, the
star actor of the drama, is now facing
his accusers and trying to explain away
the charges made against him and his as
sociates. The attorneys for the defense
Bay that they will be able to close their
case In time for the arguments to be
made and the cause placed In the keeping
of the 12 men by Saturday evenirtg, and
so the long, dragging third trial seems to J
be nearing Its end. j
Dr. Gesner and Marlon R. Biggs have j
told their part, and have retired to make j
place for Mr. Williamson, and through j
their stories begins to shine the theory
and intent of the men who are battling
for their Innocence. The testimony of
both Gesner and Biggs Is about the same
as at the former trials, though, perhaps,
differing In a few of the minor details.
The testimony of Mr. Williamson, from
what part of It could be seen yesterday,
has changed, however, not In substance,
perhaps, but In spirit and direction. The
visit to Prlnevllle in June, the conversa
tion with Gesner as to what should be
done to protect the firm's range, and the
loaning of tne firm's money to the claim
ants for Government timber claims, all
these things are admitted this time by
Mr. Williamson, while before they wero
shrouded In doubt.
"Passes Buck" to Gesner.
Dr. Gesner. however, must bear the
load. If the first part of the testimony of
Mr. Williamson Indicates its trend. Mr.
Williamson admits he knew that the
firm's money was being loaned to the
people in the vicinity of Prlnevllle that
they might be able to take timber claims,
but says he did not know that Dr. Gesner
had made any trip to the shearing camp.
where he talked with the men and ex
plained to them what he could or could
not do. According to the understanding
of the senior member of the firm, he knew
nothing of these transactions' until they
were told at the trial. The rsoney was
to be loaned that was known to him
but that a mortgage was to be taken, or
had been taken, or that any arrangement
had been made about the grass, or any
statement concerning the possible value
of the claims to the firm after patent had
been secured, all this was news to him.
The case, therefore, and the theory and
contention of the defense, will. In all prob
ability, hinge upon the Intent of Dr.
Gesner at the time he made his loans. The
question that will decide the guilt or the
Innocence of the three men will not be
whether or not they did get men to take
tin land and thereby commit perjury, but
whether they contracted to buy that land
from these entrymen.
T. M. Baldwin was the first witness for
the defense yesterday morning. He Is the
cashier of the First National Bank of
Prlnevllle, and was also a witness for the
Government. He was called by the do
fense, however, to show the previous good
reputations of the defendants.
Dr. Gesner Recalled.
Dr. Gesner was next recalled for a short
session with Mr. Heney. He was asked If
he had ever leased the timber land filed
upon by the various men who had been
Government witnesses, and replied that he
had executed no written lease.
On redirect examination. Dr. Gesner told
of his conversation with J. S. Cooper, of
Independence. He said that he and Cooper
had been in the Imperial Hotel, and
Cooper had asked him how he was getting
along. Cooper had also said that the wit
nesses seemed to be afraid to tell all they
knew, and Gesner had replied that the
Government, apparently, had a club over
them in. some manner. He further testi
fied thav"he was unable to recognize any
of the photographs taken by McAlpin as
sections of land around his range. The
firm of Morrow & Keenan had also been
on friendly terms with that of William
son & Gesner. Dr. Gesner also declared
It would have been Impossible for him to
have written two checks on the same day
and dated one on December 9 and the
other on December 11- This will be used
In refutation of the stories of Craln and
Gaylord, who testified that they had re
ceived their checks on a different date
from that shown on the documents.
Marion R. Biggs was the next witness
for the defense. He told practically the
same story as at the first two trials. He
said that he had advised Dr. Gesner to
the best of his ability concerning what
he might do to protect his range. In this
advice he had told Gesner that he could
make no contract, but that he could Inti
mate what the land would be worth to
him when patents had been secured. This
advice, the witness thought, had been
sound, and was according to the law, and
he had Intended no wrong. The witness
denied that he had ever made changes in
any filings unless authorized to do so by
the claimant. v
Heney Quizzes Biggs. v
On cross-examination, Mr. Heney at
tacked the statement of the witness that
be bad not known of Williamson's connec
tion with the land transactions. He asked
Biggs if he had not told John S. Watklns
that he wanted to get Campbell Duncan
In a room with a stenographer and get a
transcript of his remarks to flash upon
him at the trial. This the witness denied
having attempted to do.
Mr. "Williamson followed Mr. Biggs to
wards the end of the day's session. He
told of hli visit to Prlnevllle In June, 1S02,
and explained to the Jury how he came
to deny having been there when ques
tioned at the first trials. After making
an Investigation, he had found that he
had been there, though he had no remem
brance, of the visit. The witness also said
that Jf be was there at that time he un
doubtedly discussed the range trouble with
Gesner and made some arrangement about
It. He had not, however, known anything
