FACT NOTICED BY THE JUDGE He Permits Prosecutor to Ask Leading Question. WITNESS ADMITS PERJURY Henry E. Beard, in Williamson Bi.cKS-Van Gesncr Trial, Con fesses That He Swore Falsely Under Oath. VAX GESXKR'S LETTER TO HEARD. The following inter was Identified by Henry E- Beard, a -witness at the VIlllamRon trial yesterday, as one written to him by Dr. Ge.ner, advis ing him to relinquish a timber claim taken by him at the request of Gesner and Williamson. The letter was writ ten Just subsequent to the publication of Secretar- Hitchcock's report in the Oresonlan, In which report the Secrefary declared his intention of probing the Oregon land frauds to the bottom. The letter Is regarded, by the .Government as conclusive evidenre regards the connection of Gesner with the rase. The letter read: "Prinevllle. Or.. May 23, 1004. Mr. Henry E. Beard Dear Sir: I think the only thing for 3'ou to do is to now re linquish your timber claim. The Ue partmont has a tip on the business, and to avoid trouble I have got to set out from under the whole thins- Have nothing more to do with it and save trouble for all of up. They are liable to call us before the I'nlted States grand Jury oe witnesses and give us lets of trouble, so the only thing to do Is to relinquish your claim. I -would do lit) right away. Say nothing about It and go before Mr. Biggs. Very truly', VAX GESNER." Three witnesses now have been heard In the trial of. Representative Williamson. Dr. Van Gesner and Marlon R. Biggs, whose cases are being heard before Judge De Haven. They have given damaging testimony, but it has been literally dragged from them, and yesterday morn ing when Henry Beard -was testifying. Judge De Haven turned to District Attor ney Hem-y and said: "Mr. Heney, you may lead the witness, for It seems as if this is the only way you can get anything out of him." This statement came from the court after His Honor had listened to the exam ination of Campbell Duncan, Green Beard and his son Henry. Hardly bad the direct examination of Duncan gotten under way than Inferences that witness for the Gov ernment had been tampered with were be ing brought out. Duncan had a splendid ability to forget. His memory in connec tion with the talks and deals that he ljad with the defendants was conveniently a blank. So wa that of Green Beard, who was another of the men who had taken up a timber claim, which. It is alleged, was taken up for Dr. Gesner and Repre sentative Williamson. His son Henry was also suffering from a bad memory, but after a severe shaking up both by Mr. Heney and Judge Bennett, he blandly ad mitted, when he was closely pressed by Judge Bennett, that he had committed perjury in swearing to his timber entry affidavit. From the line of questioning pursued by District Attorney Heney when Duncan was recalled. Inference was plain that the Government prosecutor believed that some one was tampering with his witnesses. Duncan was recalled to identify a copy of The Oregonlan of the date November 24, 1002. -This artiole contained a paragraph from Secretary Hitchcock's report which forecasted prosecution of land frauds. It was this paragraph which was read to Duncan and Green Beard by Dr. Gesner. when he told them to relinquish their claims. Duncan, with the same halting and reluctant manner in which he had given all of his testimony, stated that he thought that was the paragraph which Dr. Gesner had road. Mr. Heney also tried to get the witness to admit that when he was served with a subpena he rati from the Deputy Sheriff. Further testimony along this line was objected to by the court, and he was allowed to go, and seemed very willing to make his exit. Green Beard on the Stand. Green Beard followed Duncan on the stand. . District Attorney Heney went after the witness rough shod. The witness had a bad memory: he couldn't even remember that within a few minutes before court was convened he had talked with Mr. Heney, and it took some prodding to get him to recall this talk. Among the many questions which Mr. Heney put to him was one In which he asked Beard if he (Beard) hadn't been told Thursday afternoon that there was money in it If the witness would tes tify "right." Judge Bennett objected to the question and his objection was sus tained. The witness testified that during a conversation with Marion Biggs the lat ter had told him that Dr. Gesner wanted .several people to take up claims and that Gesner would pay for them. He said that he, and his wife, and a number of others, met at the shearing pens of "Williamson & Gesncr. where they also met Dr. Ges ner. Surveyor Gray was also present, and the witness was shown the land upon which he filed. The witness had only a misty recollection of Xhc alleged talk that Dr. Gesner had with the fliers In regard to taking' up the claims and the paying of the money for the final proofs of filing. Beard -testified that he had not made his final proofs because, after talking It over with Dr. Van Gesner. they had both agreed "that there might be trouble." Dr. Gesner, the witness stated, returned to him the money he had paid. for his filing fees, because he' had paid these out of his own pocket. The strongest witness for the Govern ment, while he was plainly an un willing witness, was Henry Beard. It was his unwillingness to testify that called for Judge De Haven's remark that Mr. Heney might lead the witness. District Attorney Heney had not asked for this ruling, but, once it was given, he made good use of it. Beard also secerned to have taken a hint from what Judge De Haven had said, for he became freer In his admissions. He admitted that he had been in the employ of Gesner and Williamson. He told of the presence of Surveyor Gray, and stated that Williamson had helped In a mirvey which had taken place on the morning of the afternoon upon which his claim had been surveyed. Beard Identified a letter from Dr. Ges ner to him. which bids fair to be almost as Important factor in the prosecution as the famous Mitchell letter. Dr. Ges ner had written to the witness suggest ing to him that he relinquish his claim. This letter was damaging to a degree, for In the missive Dr. Gesner had ad mitted that "to avoid trouble he must get out from under the whole thing." Mr. Heney only asked him a few more questions, and then the witness was turned over to Judge Bennett for cross examination. Judge Bennett at once be gan to impeach the witness by his own testimony. This came out while he was being examined In regard to the affi davits. Unlike his father and Duncan, Beard had not relinquished his claim. Judge Bennett led him along until it came to the point where he swore to the affidavits. Under the rigid fire of questions the witness remained calm. In swearing to these affidavits there Is a list of set questions that arc asked. Henry Beard Admits Perjury. Judge Bonnett crowded the witness very close regarding the answers he made to the questions set forth In the affidavit regarding a contract to sell the claims made before the first filing. Wit ness was not sure whether lie hud sworn to his final proofs before Biggs. Itoggs or a clerk named Smith. He was suro that he had signed them and was finally forced to admit that when he swore to the answers that he knew that he "lied," as Judge Bennett put It to him, because he had arranged with Dr. Gesner about the final disposition of his claim. In this affidavit the witness swore that he had borrowed a part of the money with, which to prove up on, and that he mwl an account Jn the First National Bank at Prlnevllle. The witness admitted that he had sworn to what was not true, that he had not borrowed " the money, and that he never had a bank account. While Judge Bennett was trylnp to get other Impeaching testimony from him. Judge De Haven suggested that the wit ness be asked the question In a certain way. Junior counsel for the defense ob jected at first and finally put the ques tion that his honor suggested, and Judge Bennett .asked: "At the time you made the affidavit of final proof, did you believe it was true?" "No." came the calm reply. Some other questions were asked and court was adjourned until Monday after noon at 2 o'clock. Shortly after the morning session convened, ex-Senator Thurston rose to make inquiry concerning the motion for n mm- trlnl f o . I Mitchell. Counsel explained that he was a long way from home and that nothing save the pending motion was keeping him In Portland. Judge De Haven then announced that he would take up the Mitchell case at 10 o'clock Mondav morn ing. HENEY CALLS WITNESSES.

Williamson, Gesner and Biggs was resumed. Campbell Duncan, the witness of the previous day. was recalled bv Mr Hency and asked to Identify the "copy of The Oregonlan In which appeared the report of Secretary Hitchcock relating to the Oregon timber-land frauds, which had caused the relinquishment of the claims that had been taken at the instance of the defendants. The witness Identified thf paper, and It was Introduced us evi dence to apply as to Gesner, In showing his connection with the consplraev. Continuing with the witness, the District Attorney asked him when he had been subpenaed to appear as a witness before J!lnai n,?' B,n on. Duncan replied that it had been a few days ago. though he did not remember the date. "Do you know the Deputy Marshal who subpenaed you?" was asked. The witness stated that he did. "Didn't you run when you saw him coming after you." Mr. Henev asked. The defence objected to the question, and the court sustained the objection. The wit ness was then excused. Green Beard Is Called. Green Beard. farmer, of Prlnevllle was the next, witness called bv the Gov ernment. Mr. Beard stated that he had lived about eight miles from Prlnevllle for a number of years, and that he knew all of the defendants In the case.

FINDS NO OTHER REMEDY He Says Ballots Cannot Bent Fren zied Finance, Roosevelt Is Brave but Powerless, Public Own ership Wlll-o'-thc-Wlsp. FOREST PARK. Ottawa. Kan., July 8. (Special.) A heavy rainstorm that fell with terrific force upon the roof of the Ottawa Chautauqua Assembly tabernacle this afternoon drowned out the voice of Thomas W. Lawson and compelled the speaker to stop. Fulfilling the promise made this morning that he would "tell the story to the West If It takes until Sunday," Mr. Liiwson declared he would continue to speak tonight. He had al ready spoken two hours, ilr. Lawson stopped when the storm commenced, and the audience sang "America." It devel oped later, however, that it would be Im possible to continue the speech for some time. An audience of perhaps 10.005 greeted Mr. Lawson with wild cheers and the Chautauqua salute of waving handker chiefs when he appeared on the platform at 2 o'clock. Mr. Lawson was Introduced by Mr. Rldgcway, the publisher of Every body's Magazine, who declared that Mr. Lawson had been raised up by God to save the people from their present condi tion. Mr. Ridgeway condemned the United States Senate in the most scathing terms as the "foulest sore on the body politic." Mr. Iawson had difficulty In making himself heard at times, but his remarks were repeatedly app!tuded. Almost Too Hoarse to Talk. When he resumed at S o'clock tonight, he could scarcely speak above a whisper, so hoarse was he from the strain upon his voice. The park, building was again filled with aa audience of several thou sand. Mr. Lawson flr.ally managed to make himself heard, and continued speak ing: until nearly 10 o'clock. He snid that he would spend Sundny here and rest irom "the Strain of the trip and speech making. He 'would, he said, attend the religious services of the assembly tomor row. Mr. Iiwson reached Ottawa at 11 o'clock this morning, and was entertained by one of the citizens of Ottawa at a din ner party. Mr. Lawson began by saying: I have come to Kansas on a slmpte mis sion to point out to you that the American people are being robbed, by whom. how. and what the consequences will be If the robbery Is not stayed and an example made of the robbers. Mr. Lawson discussed at length the evils of the "system" and continued: What are you going to do about It? You know that the economic condition which al lows the few to possess all and the many are left with nothing mut be ended. If It Is not. saery P the alternative. How Shall it be ended? By your ballots? What am ballots against dollars, and the "system" has unlimited dollars. With $3,000,000 I saw Rogers rob the able, fearless, honest, but all-wrong-on-;he-money-questSon William Jen nings Bryan out of the Presidency of the I'nlted States In 1S90. Do you Imagine ha would shrink from repeating the operation In 100S If he feared that the man you nomi nated would upset his control? Booscvelt Brave but Powerless. Today at the helm of your affairs Is an able ami fearless Ameriean, bold to con ceive and strong to execute. To all of you he Is a hero, and you uphold his course wherever he scs fit to go. President Rooje velt knows It. and today no man In the country is more keenly aware of the neces sity of curbing the corporate despotism un der which we live but what con President Roosevelt de? I hate to say It. but he Is as heplM In the "system's" net as a bull In a balloon. Like Gulliver in Ltlltputla. he Is bound by 1000 threads Congress, the Senate, the party's Interests, and gratitude, and all the Intangible Influences which the great money power can weave around any Individual. Hm brave and quick the Pres ident Is to do! wrong is called to his at tention, n law must needs be passed the rebate evil must be curbed, and he sends messages to Congress demanding Instant ac tion. What happens? Congress temporlres; the Senate snubs him. and the "system" snickers. Relief was not to be looked for from the courts, Mr. Lawson said, because the great corporations "Db not hesitate to suborn perjury, bribe juries and pny Judges for favorable decisions." Munici pal ownership Mr. Lawson dismissed as a "will-o'-the-wisp," and he continued: Sell Back to the System. The surest, safest and most natural pro cess of restitution Is the application of the "system's" own methods to the "system." The first step is for the American people to divorce themselves from the "system" and sell every share of stock and every bond they hold back to the frenzied financiers at present Inflated prices. Take the money thua realized and place It In banks and trust com panies, or. better still. In Government, state and municipal bonds. This, Mr. Lawson said, would cause a collapse of the "system" which would be obliged to throw over the stocks and bonds It carried. These stocks and bonds, the people could purchase, and having only to pay Interest on their real values, could reduce rates of fare and freight and prices generally, and the revolution would then be complete.

FOURTH ON THE EIGHTH Roosevelt Has a Delayed Fireworks Exhibition. OYSTER BAY, July S. (Special.) This was the Fourth of July on Sagamore Hill. The blaze of light tonight from the set pieces, the Roman candles, the rockets and the plnwheels would have convinced any stranger of this fact, had they heard the firecrackers punctuating the shouts and laughter of all the children, little and big. The celebration was postponed from the regular Fourth on account of the death of Secretary Hay and the absence of President .Roosevelt. Tonight's good time more than made up for the delay, all the children declared. Mrs. Roosevelt berved lee cream and cake on the lawn nnd the President bore his share of tho tssk of entertaining by his successful manipulation of rockets and Roman can dles. An expert from one of the big New York fireworks firms was in charge. About 100 of the neighbors, relatives and friends participated In the delayed cele bration.

A new move on tho part of the local express companies to avoid sprend of the teamsters strike, and at the same time to escape violat ing the injunction restraining them from refusing- to make dellvuries to strike-bound houses, materialized In the Incorporation of the Chicago Cart age Company at Springfield today. This company will be employed for the de livery of express matter by the en Joined express companies to the strike bound concerns in the city, nnd non union mn are to be employed.

The Admiralty late this afternoon was Informed of the surrender of tha Knlaz Potemkln to tho Roumanian, au thorities at Kustenji, but the officials here have no details of the arrangements made between the Roumanian govern ment and the mutineers. No diplomatic steps have been taken, but the Foreign Office undoubtedly will make the strong est representations against the mutineers beins treated as simple deserters and will demand their surrender to answer not only for mutiny but also for the mur der of their officers, the bombardment oC Odessa and incitement to a. revolution. The vainglorious proclamation issued! by the mutineers at Odessa will also weigh heavily against them. Their crime Is considered the most odious by all na tions, and it Is thought to be imperative that the strongest Justice be meted out to the ringleaders as an example to the fleets of Russia and the whole world. Kruger to Take Ship Back. Rear-Admiral Kruger's squadron, so scon as it can be found, will be ordered to proceed to Kustenji to take over the battleship and place a crew on board. There Is a strong sentiment manifesting Itself here in favor of wiping the name of Knlaz Potemkln from the navy regis ter and giving the ship a new name. The situation in the Caucasus is so bad that the authorities there dare not pub lish an oillclal account of the naval mutiny and the events at Odessa. There are disorders at Tlflls, and the govern ment Is taking measures to distribute arms and ammunition among the Russian population of the Caucasus. Rioting in Many Cities. At Kieff. a noncommissioned officer has been tried by court-martial and sent to prison for dissemination of revolutionary literature among the soldiers. Much anti-Semitic rioting has occurred in the district around Nizi Novgorod. The working classes have also been attacked. The police of Markarleff are powerless to stop the excesses there. The town was given over to the mob for several hours. Czar Pleases Liberals. The publication of .the Emperor's reply to the reactionary deputation. In which His Majesty addressed the delegates as "gentlemen and brothers," has created a favorable impression even among the Liberals, as it is noticed that the Em peror reiterated his promise to summon an assembly without discussing the depu tation's suggestions looking to a more restricted body than outlined in the Boullgan project, and also that Hla Majesty failed to comment on their ad vocacy of a continuance of the war. SURRENDER OF REBEL SHIP Crew Will Go to Roumanian Fron tier and Be Liberated. KUSTENJI, Roumanla. July 8. The mutinous crewa of the Knlaz Potemkln and her consort, the rebel torpedo-boat, have surrendered to the Roumanian au thorities, have been landed, and are now being dispatched in small parties to dif ferent places in Roumanla. The mutineers wanted to take off the treasure which was on board the Knlaz Potemkln. but the authorities declined to acquiesce. The Russians will gradually be con veyed to any frontier they may select and will then be liberated, the local offi cial! having given an understanding to this effect. The Roumanian flag, as well as the Russian, has been hoisted over the Rus sian war vessels, so as to prevent any attack on them in Roumanian waters by the vessels of the Russian squadron which are reported to be in pursuit of the mutineers. The mutineers offered to surrender as deserters, and the Roumanian authorities demanded the breech-locks of the battle ship's guns as a pledge of good faith. The mutineers offered to prewnt the battleship to the Roumanian government, as they declare they are anxious that she should not be handed over to Russia. The Knlaz Potemkln arrived here to day, accompanied by a torpedoboat. Concluded on Page 3.).
