spent the remainder of the day and night
in visiting the various buildings and at

The visiting Idahoans all wore neat
white badges, on which were printed the
name of their state in neat and bold type.
They also brought along with them con
siderable literature in pamphlets, descrip

offered In Northern Idaho, which were

witness testified that he had not under

Henry E. Beard, a son of the preceding
witness, was the next man called by the
Government. He testified that he had
lived in or near Prineville for a number
or years, and that he knew the defend-
ants, and had worked for the firm of .
Williamson & Gesner. He had had a con-
vcrsatlon with Gesner la 1S02 about tak- !
Ing up timber lands near the Williamson

up claims?" Mr. Honey asked.
Witnesses Unwilling, Says Judge.
The court interrupted: "I think. Mr.
Heney. that you have the right to lead
the witness. That is about the only way ;
you will get any testimony." The defense :
objected to the ruling of tho court most
vigorously, but Judge De Haven insisted j
that, in order to expedite matters and get i
any testimony at all from the witnesses, e
who were manifestly unwilling to tell their i
story, that Mr. Heney had the right to I
ask leading questions. j
"What dirt thv savrthotit tntclntr tnlm? .
Were they not laughing and joking about
taking up kind when they were In camp?"
"They said that there was a spring on
one of the claims, and that It would not
do to let It go. That was the claim I
took up." '
"Who said that It would not do to let
the claim go?" "Dr. Gesner told Mr.

' "Did anyone ask you to do so?" "Mr.

The witness then identified a letter

advised the witness to go to Biggs and

by the Government, as against Gesner.

Judge Objects to Repetition.
Judge De Haven becamo tired of the
repetition by the defense, and interrupt
ed. "I think the witness has said he
didn't remember about three or four,
tlraoa." he said.
"Am 1 to understand." asked Judge
Bennett, "that the defense cannot cross
examine the witness further?"
"Not on that point." answered the court.
"The witness has stated three or four
times that he did not remember anything
ed to borrow money to take up land. The
witness denied this.
"Didn't you swear in the affidavit you
made that you had made no contract to
sell the- land?" Judge Bennett asked M.
Beard, and he said that he had.
"Then you swore to a He when you
signed the affidavit and took the oath

failed to answer and Judge Bennett
changed the question a little.

Favor Mr. Thurxton.
Senator Mitchell has filed his motlou
for a new trial and will present his argu
ment before the Federal Court on Mon
day morning. Upon the words of Senator
Thurston and his partner counsel. Judge
A. S. Bennett, and upon the construction
and decision of Judge De Haven depends
whether or not the Senator will be grant
ed the privilege of once more presenting
his cause before a jury of his fellow citi

forced to rely upon the Justice and mercy
of the Supreme Court of the United States
or of the Circuit Court of Appeals.
Yesterday morning, when the Federal
Court was convened. Senator Thurston,
appeared before Judge De Haven, for tho
first time since the night of July 3. wht'a
he had served notice of a motion for a
new trial upon the court, and acquainted
the court wtth the fact that his motion
had been filed. He stated to the court
that he was ready to argue his motion on
Monday next If it met with the favor of
Judge De Haven was willing to hear
the motion at that time If It were neces

Interrupt the course of the Wllltamson
trial unless he had to do so.
Senator Thurston told the court that ho
. had nothing more to keep him In Port
land, that he wa6 a long journey from
his home and called to the court's mind
that a homing Journey was always a
pleasant one. The court therefore ordered
that the motion be set for a hearing on
Monday next at 10 o'clock, at which time.
