TESTIMONY IN ALLEN TRIAL
Uohn Hahn Testifies in His Case
, Against B. F. 'Allen, Telling of
Things When Both Were
Members of Legislature.
ASTORIA, Or., March . IS. (Special)
The jury in the Allen case failed to agree
and was discharged hy the court at 11
o'clock tonight. On the first ballot the
vote was six for acquittal, five for con
viction and one blank. Later two changed
their'votes. and the last few ballots were
S to 4 In favor of the defendant.
ASTORIA, Or., March 18. (Special.)
, The trial of Benjamin F. Allen on the
charge of criminal libel was resumed
in the Circuit Court this morning, and
a number of adldtional witnesses tes
tified as to the good reputation borne
b'y the defendant for truth and verac
ity. Representative Schumann was
called by the prosecution. He testified
that Hahn never attempted to pur
chase his vote, and also that he an
nounced at a Democratic caucus at
which Mr. Allen was present on the
evening at February 22, 1901, he in
tended to change his vole to Corbett
on the following day.
The principal witness for the prose
cution was John Hahn, the complain
ant. He said he never had any con
versation with Mr. Allen regarding H.
W. Corbett, had never offered him or
anyone else a bribe and never was on
the Capitol porch with him or any one
else. He had heard Mr. Allen's testi
mony in the court yesterday, and said
it was false "when asked by the Dis
trict Attorney to tell what conversa
tion he had at any time with Mr. Allen
regarding the Senatorial contest, he
aid that -when on the train going to
Salem he told Allen they must act so
ns to have not only clear consciences
hut also so as not to leave a shadow of
Vloubt as to their honesty; that he told
Allen to stay with the nominee of the
Democratic caucus and he was pledged
to vote for the men selected by the
caucus nominee. A few days later, how
ever, he became afraid that Allen was
not going to remain honest and he was
told by "Tone" Smith that Allen would
probably vote for Corbett.
On the last day of the session Allen
told the witness he was thinking of
changing his vote; that everyone else
was getting money and he might as
well do the same, and asked li ne,
Hahn, knew what they were paying for
Democratic votes. The witness said he
pleaded with Allen not to think of
tsuch a thing, but "Allen replied that he
needed the money, his business In As
torla was in bad shape, he owed con
siderable money and if he could get
sufficient to pay his debts and leave
him a few hundred dollars ho would
pell out and leave Astoria, as he could
not stay here after selling his vote.
At this juncture Mr. Allen sprang from
his seat and, pointing his finger at the
witness exclaimed: "You lie, you know
Continuing the witness said that
after holding the conversation with Mr.
Allen he decided it would be a good
thing- to know if money was being paid.
ns was reported, so he went to tne
lobby and inquired among the workers.
He asked what was the market price
for Dc'nocrats. and was told by one
"S2000:" another said "525.000;" while
a third replied that "550,000 would be
paid for a good fat Democrat who
Returning to the Legislative cham
ber, Hahn said "ne told Mr. Allen what
he had hoard. Shortly afterward, so the
witness testified, two lobbyists engaged
Mr. Allen in conversation, and after
they were gone the latter told him
they were tryi"S to get him to change
his vote, but did not say to whom.
Hahn said ne advised Allen not to
clve In. and in the evening when Allen
utayed with the Democratic candidate,
he complimented him on his honest
stand, saying 'a clear conscience is
better than a little money." This was
the substance of his testimony, which
occupied several hours.
Following Mr. Hahn. Mr. Allen was
acraln Dlaced on the stand and he de
nied Hahn's statement from beginning
to end. A. M., 'Tone, Smith was called,
and he denied ever having told Hahn
that Allen was liable to change his vote
P. B. Scvey testified to a conversation
which he had with Hahn in wnicn tne
latter told him he had advised Allen to
deal direct with the Corbett managers
otherwise the middleman or agent
would got a portion of the money.
Hahn denied having" made such
statement to Sovey.
Rather unexpectedly the attorneys
decided to submit the case without ar
gument, and after receiving the charge
of the court the Jury retired at S o'clock
this afternoon. Judge McBrlde In his
charge said the burden of proof was
on the prosecution to show that the
alleged article had been published by
the defendant, and after that the bur
den was on the defendant to show that
the statements in the article were true
or thore was reason to believe them
true also that they were published with
(rood motives and Just ends In view.
The admitted object of publishing
the letter was to keep Mr. Hahn from
getting the position of Postmaster in
Astoria for which he was recently
nominated by the President and con
firmed by the Senate, on' the alleged
grounds that he is not a proper per
son for the position.
Inspector Riches, of the Postal De
partment. has attended the trial since

will help the state to procure.
J. C Cooper who has In charge the
county exhibit, told of some df the
plans which the board is contemplat
ing, and displayed interesting designs
of the same. A general discussion or
ways and means took place. In which
the idea was uppermost that tho slogan

of the county in preparing for the Fair.
Tho subject of better transportation fa

were adopted unanimously:

VAN DE VANTER RALLIES AGAIN
Now Believed That State Senator
Has Passed Crisis of Illness.
SEATTLE. Wash., March 18. (Spe
cial.) State Senator A. T. Van de Van
ter has rallied again, and tonight his
physicians have strong hopes that he
will ultimately recover. Twenty-four
hours earlier the case was practically
hopeless and tho death of the Senator
was almost momentarily expected.
Van do Vanter has been making a
desperate fight for life. He passed the
crisis in tho attack of pneumonia with
which he was first stricken and ap
peared to be safely on the road to re
covery. At one time it was believed he
would be convalescent before the ad
journment of the Legislature, but ser
ious complicattonsjset In and his condi
tion became alarming.
Atraln last week "Van de Vanter ap
peared to be growing better rapidly.'
but a relapse occurred, wnen ne sul
fered hemorrhage Friday, and at noon
Saturday strangled over a teaspoonful
of water, tho case seemed almost hope
less. Last night he was very weak, but
this morning he had rallied again. To
night his physicians believed the dan
ger point had been passed again.
Even tonights Indications that van
do Vanter will recover are verified. It
will probably ba months before he Is
able to give any attention to business.
A long period of convalescence is pre
dicted, but If improvement is snown
for the next few days the physicians
will believe complete recovery will be
only a matter of tlmo".
