aire, and the day ended with a victory
for the defense. The clash, however, is
believed to be only preliminary to the
name- tonay over tne runner introduc
tion of Campbell's testimony.
Tbe skirmish came when Rush asked
the witness to detail the conversation
witn Aioert m. Palmer ln Seattle. -
Hawley. rising to his feet, entered an
objection, aa he did not aee how it
was binding on the defendant He stat
ed tnat u tne conversation waa a nar
rative it could not be binding on Borah.
Ruah showed the court a letter bear
ing on the latter and the latter said he
could not see that It waa binding' on
Korah but would take the question un-
. wniwi, . .in. inner re
marking that Borah had not yet .been
vuiuiM3itMi witn tne conspiracy. -
During the dav the defenaa had adnnt.
ed the policy of. allowing, everything
to go into tne record without objection
and In thla way -many letters which
materially a ineo: tne government 'in
proving the part Steunenberg played in
the alleged conspiracy . were introduced.
inner letters pointing to the part Bt

fore the court in the same manner. All
this- correspondence Is between Sweet
ana nis attorney, H. wortnman. Bteun

Judge John, Richardson. t '
The lettef which It is claimed ahows
Borah'a "guilty knowledge was written
to Worth-nan In rea-ard to 110.000 which
had been placed In escrow for use In
buying timber lands. . In part of thla
tetter ne sayas -
"I wish you would go over and see
Mr. Borah; Mr. Borah la Governor
Steunenberg's attorney and understands
the mstter in every particular."
. The letter goes on- to say that Bleun
enberg had telearaihed to send, him a
copy of the agreement. ,
tnia agreement Sweet writes, waa
for $1,000 of his money which the gov

could. Another letter, regarded aa sig

A letter from Bteunenbersr from Rau
Claire, Wisconsin, where the governor
had Just concluded a deal with Barber

pointed out to tha fury by Attorney
Rush as showing the writer's guilt
It contains the following:
"The conditions of the deal are very
exacting on me, as they practically bind
me to eomplet the deal and make me
financially responsible. In other words,
take all the responsibility ss to title.
etc. I do not like this feature. In
other words, I hardly think It fair,
but then I have every confidence In my
