Snn Francisco, Juno 17. Conclud
ing his nrgumont In doronso of rat
rick Calhoun at 10:45 o'clock this
morning, A. A. Mooro surrendered tho
floor to Frnncls J. Honoy. A brlof
recess wns declared by tho court after
which, at 11:16 o'clock, Honoy ad
dressed tho Jury.
...ooro followed tho lino of rhetori
cal 'nrgumont that yesterday hold
spellbound tho largest audlonco that
yot had packed tho courtroom. Hold
ing to rldlculo tho fact that tho Unit
ed Itnllroads or tho dofondnut had at
tempted In any way to rotard Justice,
ho boldly denounced tho prosecution
and duplordd tho so-called prosecu
tion of tho defendant.
Ho assorted that tho Infamous
practlco of Interviewing jurors by tho
defendant nnd prosecution wns n dov
tllsh Invontion of llllnm J. Burns
nnd that tho United Itnllroads had a
right, if tho "mlsorablo wretches"
who. worked for Hums offored to soil
his documents, to purchuso thoni. Ho
scoffed at tho Idea of Cnlhouu being
Implicated In tho dynamiting of "Ulg
Jim" Qnllaghor's house In Oakland,
and avorred that Gallagher's II fo was
dearor to Calhoun In mo light of his
testimony than It wns to any other
man on earth with tho exception of
Ho scorod tho prosecution ns hav
ing sidetracked all Ibsiiob to got at
Calhoun and roforrod to tho defend
ant as tho poor man who was drag
ged nt tho chariot wheels of a politi
cal combination that has boon ruling
nnd ruining Snn Frnnclsco."
Mooro wound up by declaring that
Calhoun's uamo nnd honor woro nt
stake, and that these aro dearor to
him thnn his life. His last words to
tho Jury wore:
"And now, goutlomon. I lonvo in
your hands tho honor of Patrick Cal
houn, feeling secure that whon you
havo completed your deliberations
Justico will havo been dono."
Possessing in no measure tho olo-
nuonco nnd rhotorlcnl ability of
Mooro, Honey wasted no tlmo In get
ting to tho points of his argument
whon ho took tho floor to begin tho
closing nrgumont for tho prosecu
tion. After scoring Mooro for tho nl
leged abuso ho has heapod upou the
heads of tho supporters of thu prose
cution, Honey said:
"Mooro asked you to bollevo that
bpreokels. Phelnn, Iiurns, Q Clara,
..onoy and tho members of tho
Longuo of Jiibtlce aro a.t criminals,
that they've all committed erlino.i.
nnd ho says It's proven by tho rec
ords. If tho records proco that, what
will you say about what thoy nrovo
about Patrick Cnlhoun?
Isn't thoro onnueh In thoso roc-
ords to sink Patrick Calhoun to tho
bottommost pits of holl?
"Tho evidence demonstrates that
Patrick Calhoun Is guilty, that ovory
nair or nis noaa is guilty.

trial of Wnrron Hastings, that 'a
criminal 1b trapped more often by tho
things ho trios to cover up than by
tho ovldence of tho crlmo ho leaves
"Thoy havo attacked mo throueh-

tom of your soul what kind of a man

other you like me. I don't
want any man on tho Jury to llko me.
I havon't mado any plea to have any
man on tho Jury to llko mo. I want
every man on this Jury to vote from
tho dictates of his consclonco, wheth
er ho likes Francis J. Honey or ap
proves of his methods. You may
think that I havo boon wrong In con
ducting myself tho way I havo dur
ing this trial, but Is thoro ono of you
who would havo taken as much as

havo been fighting for a principle

uonoy tnon told of Calhoun's fall
uro to socure his overhead trolley
permit. Ho said that Calhoun, who
was so anxious to rostoro transporta
tion for the people of San Francisco
that ho put 6000 Imported Orooks to
work, could havo went to tho com
mittee of fifty and sccurod a tempor
ary permit to operate his cars until
ho was ablo permanently to restore

shortly after tho earthquake, and tho

ed cars by meroly spreading open
their cablo slots. What they wanted,
he claimed, waB a pormunont over
head trolley franchise, for which a
temporary permit bad been secured
by Eugene E, Schmltz by Thornwell
Mullally. Continuing ho said:
"This thing of attacking the pros
ecution isn't nqw at all. When a
lawyer Is shy on facts In law ho al
ways attacks the other fellow.
"Tho dofenso objects to the sloutbs
who havo boon omnloved to cather
