After a determined struggle by the
attorneys for tho defense, Judgo Do
Haven ordered this testimony

Tho en so for tho government was
closed by tho testimony of William

tracts In tho General Land Offlco at

Dr. Pcrrln, aged millionaire from

was owner of 300,000 acres of land
In Arizona and at ono time bad ISO,
