Testimony In behalfof the defense
consumed yesterday's proceedings, and
while a number of witnesses were
called, chief interest centered around
the defendant, who was on the stand
for nearly two hours. Mr. Sheridan re
viewed in detail his dealings with de
positors cf his bank who had appeared
as witnesses for the Government.
DrpOHltora lve Free lac, lie Says.
Ite said-that thty had implicit confi
dence In him for a great many years,
ami that tho most of them had given
him a free hand in the use of the money
they had deposited in his bank. Me ex
plained that, acting upon such authori
zation, he Issued memoranda checks in
their favor for the various amounts of
money which he used in the conduct of
various enterprises. He testified that,
in addition to ' the checks, he signed
notes to cover tho item.
On cross-examination he was unable
to determine how much of the deposi
tors' money he had taken, nor could he
remember the number of notes he had
signed. In answer to a question
whether he had aided the United States
Bank Examiner in checking up the
bank's depositors, the defendant said he
could not remember whether he had
been requested to help in making up
Charges Are Explained.
During the last halt hour of the
morning session and for more than an
hour after the noon recess the defend
ant was on the stand on his ow n behalf.
His attorney, C W. Fulton, took up
eaoh of the eight counts in the indict
ment rhargir.g him with misusing funds,
and the defendant told of the circum
stances under which he took the va
rious sums of money. In each case the
testimony was of a similar nature.
"In the seventh count in the indict
ment you are charged vith misusing
$5510 of J. E. Haney. Please explain
that." ."aid Attorney Fulton.
-Haney told me that I could use the
money in any way 1 saw fit," said the
witness. "I issued a nate and my check
covering" fie amount. This note was
subsequently paid. I gave ray note and
check covering $5000 of C. E. Marks. I
used money depobited by Mr. Marks'
tons in the same way. I was given
authority to do so from all these de
positors." Loan Cited as Failure Cause.
The defendant then was asked to
give the causes leading up to the un
dermining of his business.
"1 had-borrowed $90,000 from J. W.
Elodgett at 7 per cent, and when he
told me he wanted the money I was
unable to pay him," said Mr. Sheridan.
"1 was interested with him and others
in a $5,flOP.rt00 timber' deal, and my
share of the sale should have amounted
to $250,000. After the deal was closed

up and all I got out of the transaction
was S2S.00Q. I also lost $t0,000 in a

meet my obligations 1 made an assign
ment in favor of my creditors.
Kiprmri of Trip Borrowed.
"I didn't have a dollar left and have
no money now. I had to borrow $35
to come here by boat for this trial. My
failure and tho subsequent charges
were a great 'shock to me and my
health was greatly impaired. I did not
have much of a memory for some time.
It has been only the past few months
that 1 have been getting better."
On cross-examination Mr. Sheridan

The entrance of Ltbby, McNe.il &
Libby, .the great packing and canning
companv of Chicago, into the field in
the fruit district of the Columbia at
The Dalles is regarded as one of the
most important developments in the
Industry that has taken place in the
Northwest, by Dr. C. A. Macrum, of
the State Board of Horticulture, who
has Just returned from a visit to The
Libby, McNeil & Libby signed the
contract only a few days ago to estab
lish a cannery at The Dalles to handle
the soft fruit products and by-products
of the whole inter-Columbia district,
which includes Hood River, Mosier,
White Salmon. Lyle, The Dailes and
eastward to the Goodnough Hills. A
contract was also signed for a 15-ton
dryer to handle fruit not suitable for
cunning uses. The ground already has
been broken for this great structure.
Business men of The Dalles donated
a site valued at 50,000 and are work
ing In the most public.spirited manner
to help the business along.
If is estimated by fruit experts and
bv representatives of the company that
they can ship the output of these con
cerns by way of the Panama Canal to
New York at half the rate it would
cost to ship by rail across the conti
nent. The fruit district to be served by
this concern." says Dr. Macrum, "is
the most extensive and diversified in
the Northwest and produces every
thing that can be grown in the tem
perate tone. Hood River has a world
wide reputation for apples. The Dalles
cherry, peach and apricot output is
equally famous. East from the Co
lumbia soft fruits are grown. Wnite
Salmon and Lyle are similar to Hood
River as apple-producing centers and
tne apples from Mosier for years have
sold highest in the markets of the
"The value of this cannery, centrally
situated as it is, with river and rail
transportation of the best and a mar
ket opening by way of the canal with
freight rates cut in half, will be ines
timable to the growers of that locality,
and I believe will be of equal value to
the packers who are establishing it,"

picked up by miners near Waldo today.

foothills. He became lost ana tor me
last 11 days had been unable to hit a
trail that would lead him out of the
wilderness, where for several day. he
trudged along in deep snow. .When he
was picked up by workers at the F. B.
Stanford mining camp at Blby Gulch he
had tasted nothing but his bisouit dur
ing his long and arduous travel. Qnce
he came upon a camp store-room, but,
in his feeble way, he today explained
he was unable to eat, inasmuch as the
Indians he saw there were hostile and
threatened harnvto him if he Intruded.
When he left that only available haven
it ws to e-n denDer into the woods and
hills and, despite bis knowledge of the
surroundings, became lost.
Mr. Potter several times was wimin
a short distance of the old camp which
housed Joe snowies panj o na

"I was in snow six feet deep in some
places for much of the time," explained
Mr. Potter today. His feet are frozen
and his hands practically useless for
the same reason. He was in much pain

the cold was bitter. The one biscuit
I happened to put in my pocket when
I started on the trip to my son's last

Indians, who were at tne oniy camp

go in, and threatened me harm if I
took any food.
Old-timer, here are inclined to give
credence to the story of the Indians,
as there have been several reports that
the Indians In the SisKiyous were in
clined to be incorrigible this Winter.

Bezdek was far from satisfied withhe
"We didn't look as good as I had
hoped," he said. "There were too many
weak spots and the hitting was not

furnished by "Skeeter" Bigbee when he
connected squarely with one of Adams'
tosses and lifted it' far over the .heads
of the outfield for a clean four-base
drive. Cornell, who had walked, scored
ahead of him. In addition "Skeeter"
hit safe on two other occasions, making
his average for the afternoon three safe
