examination to which he was subjected

accused Lewlston National Bank de
faulter, on trial In the Federal Court
here Jointly with William F. Kettenbach,
added a'diamatlc closing to the case of
the defense today when he openly wept
on the wltneas atand.
The scene was a pathetic one. It was
brought about unexpectedly through the
pointed query of one of the Jurors who
ssked Kester why Kettenbach and he
had resigned from the bank in July, 1907.
Kester broke down instantly and audibly
cried for several minute, his form shak
ing with heavy sohs. Partially recover
ing, he explained they had been Indicted
some weeks before by a Federal grand
Jury at Moscow for timber frauds and
rather than remain an official of the
bank under a cloud, both he and Ketten
bach had resigned.
The Jury appeared visibly affected
through Kester's open weeping.
When the defense closed a few min
utes later. Judge Bean requested tho
Jurors not to deliberate on the evidence
or attempt to reach conclusions until
after the closing arguments and In
structions of the court are heard to
morrow, when they will be at liberty to
form an opinion. Kester denied the
charge against him and corroborated
the evidence given by Kettenbach.
Fletcher Dobyns. the Government
prosecutor, waa blunt -in his examina
tion and forced Kester to become evasive
In his answers. On one accusation Judge
Bean waa forced to Interrupt a clash be
tween counsel, angrily rapping them to
order when he pounded hta desk with his
