DODGE CASE RAISES
ECHO OF OLD TRIALS
Defense Asks Own Witness
About Fraud Conviction
and Taft Pardons.
SILENT WOMAN VANISHES
W. X. Jones, on Stand, Presents Let

ing Procedure of Trial and
Saying Jury Was 'Packed.'
are registered at the
The land fraud trials of 10 years ago
were echoed !n the courtroom of Cir
cuit Judge Kavanaugh late yesterday
when Wlllard N. Jones, one of the de
fendants in a $14,000 timber land suit
brought by the trustees for E. H.
Dodge, was called to the witness stand.
Anticipating that the plaintiff's at
torney, Thomas Mannix. would en
deavor to uncover the land fraud skele
ton. A. E. Clark, attorney for Mr. Jones
and Frederick A. Kribs. asked Mr.
Jones point blank if he had ever been
convicted of a crime.
.Surprised at the sudden tack events
had taken, Mr. Mannix raised strenu
ous objection to the question, declaring
an attorney had no right to impeach
his own witness. He was overruled.
Mr. Jones was called to the witness
stand In his own defense shortly be
fore 5 o'clock.
Witness Relates Conviction.
"At the outset, Mr. Jones," began Mr.
Clark. "I have heard it stated around
the court that if you took the stand in
your own defense in this case you were
going to be asked by counsel for the
plaintiff whether or not you had ever
been convicted of a felony. Now I am
going to ask you what the fact is."
"1 was convicted twice in the Fed
eral Court." said Mr. Jones deliber
ately, "in this district, for a conspiracy
to defraud the Government."
"That was a misdemeanor, I believe?"
asked Mr. Clark.
"I thought it was," replied Mr. Jones.
Mr. Mannix objected to this as a
legal proposition upon which Mr. Jones
was not qualified to express an opin
ion. Mr. Clark proceeded with hu
"And when was that. Mr. Jones?"
"In the Fall of 1305. and I think in
the Fall of 1906."
"And you have been granted a full
and unconditional pardon, have you
not. by the President of the United
Mr. Mannix objected.
Judge Xavanaugh said it could go in.
President Taft'n Pardon Discussed.
"I received a full and unconditional
pardon from President Taft on both
convictions," said Mr. Jones, "and in
making and granting the pardon he
stated in a letter that the proceedings
under which I was convicted were the
most infamous that had ever come
under his notice in all of his experience
on the Federal bench."
"And a letter of the same character,"
asked Mr. Clark, "was written by the
Attorney-General of the United States,
"A letter setting forth the entire
proceedings," said Mr. Jones, reaching
in his pocket.
The letter was written to President
Taft by Attorney-General Wickersham
May 10, 1012. It referred to the proceed
ings at the trial at which Mr. Jones
was convicted as "high-handed and
outrageous." and charged that the Jury
had been packed.
Mysterious omnn Absent.
This letter was introduced in evi
dence subject to the objetcion of Mr.
Mannix. who continued his objections
to the entire procedure with reference
to the land fraud trials.
Mr. Clark then asked Mr. Jones
few preliminary questions leading up
to the time he and Frederick A. Kribs
entered into the contract with E. H
Dodge which resulted in the present
lawsuit. The examination along this
line had not proceeded far when court
adjourned until this morning.
It is believed Mr. Kribs will follow
Mr. Jones on the witness-stand.
The mysterious woman who has so
closely watched the proceedings In the
Dodge suit failed to appear in the
courtroom yesterday for the first time
since the trial began, nearly a month
ago. She ventured into the Courthouse,
but only to inquire of the head janitor
for a slk parasol which she said she

Clark called timber cruisers to the
witness-stand to bring out further
figures on the cruises of the lands in
volved in the suit.

EXTENSION STEPS TAKEN
Kemonstrators Declared to Represent
Only 10O of 6000 Lots Affected
By Improvement Proceedings.
To prevent action for the proposed
extension of Greeley street from Kll
llngsworth avenue to Russell street a
party of remonstrators headed by W. L.
Farling appeared before the City Coun
cil yesterday morning. The Council
overruled the remonstrance and adopt
ed the report of Commissioner Dieck
that the extension be made.
The remonstrators say they were
signers of the original petition for the
opening of the street and charged that
they had been misled into believing
that the expense would amount to only
about 87 a lot and also that the car
company would put a line on the street,
shortening the time required to reach
the business district.
Commissioner Dieck, In his report,
said that the remonstrators, consisting
of 66 persons, represented about 100
lots out of the total of 6000 lots repre
sented Dy the original signers.
Speaking against the proposed ex
teision, . L. Farling declared that
the people along it were not the kind
who used a boulvard to any consider
able extent. Instead, he said that they
used the streetcar and that, if there
was little possibility of obtaining a line
the street would be of little benefit to
them. He estimated that the extension

NEW YORK. July 28. Speculation was Ol
a larger scale today and the volume of boat
ness was even greater than on tha preced

mark. The speetaculai advance among tbe
Industrials continued, but the movement, as
a whole, was less Impressive than yesterday.
owing to the lack of resiliency among the
railroad stocks. They were trsded la heal
ly. but showed the effects of Intermittent
rea.lzing sales. The close was Irregular
with gains of the Industrlsls well main
tained and the railroad shares on a slightly
lower level than at yesterday's close. Total
sales were 1SO.OOO shares.
The steel stocks ware tha favorites on
evidences of Improvement In trade con
ditions. United States Steel rose to ST. the
highest of the year.
The largest advances, however, were In
Crucible Steel and Bethlehem Steel, which
establishes new records. An unconfirmed re
port that control of Crucible Steel was be
ing sought by purchsses of the stock In the
open market was given in explanation of the
Jump of that Issue of 15 points, to 65.
Bethlehem Steel's rise was 22 points, to 260.
High records also were made by Crucible
leal preferred at 105: eatlnghouae Elec
tric, at 112; Allla-Chalmera. at 26. and
the preferred at 68.
Pittsburg Steel preferred was advanced five
points on resumption of the dividend at the
rate of 7 per cent. The dividend on tbe
preferted stock waa deferred on August 11
of last year.
Ths electrical stocks were unusually act
ive. The rise In w eatlnghouae waa Influ
enced by the company's receipt of a large
new war order, the contract being under
