Portland, Ore., Jan. 27. Prof.
Filbert Roth, former- chief of the
forestry division of the general land!
office, will close the case of the gov
ernment in the Binger Hermann
trial this afternoon. Prosecutor
Heney, it is expected, will conclude
the direct examination of Prof. Roth
during the afternoon, and with tho
direct examination and the recall o
some of the witness who have al
ready been on the stand the prosecu
tion will come to a close tomorrow
Col. Worthington, even before the
close of Heney's case, has begun his
effort to tear holes In the net of cir
cumstances which Heney has been
wfeaving about the defendant during:
the past two weeks of testimony. Yes
terday afternoon during the cross
examination of McVean, Col. Worth
ington attempted to remove the
force of ,tlfie witnesses direct testi
mony, which was in part to the ef
fect that Hermann had tit once taken
up the Blue Mountain case and
made the temporary withdrawals as
soon as he had recelvted the two let
ters from F. P. Mays in May, 1902,
urging that such action be taken by
the land office. McVean had testi
fied that he had those letters from
Mays before him. when he wrote tho
order of withdrawal. On cross-examination
Col. Worthington drew
from the witness that he had or
dered the withdrawal beforehand.
This morning Col. Worthington
followed the same tactics while Col.
A. R. Green, former chief of the for
estry division was on tho stand and
tried to show that all letters which
came to the land offico from senators
and representatives In congress were
mnrked special an given the right of
way by the different divisions of thQ
Marked Letter Special.
This was to combat the contention
of Heney, founded 911 testimony in
dicted by him through the different
stages of the trial, that the fact that
Hermann marked the letters of
Mitchell to Hermann concerning the
Bluo Mountain case "spl" meant
thnt he hnd done so because of his
agreement with Mays and because
ho was in the conspiracy to push tho
Bluio Mountain reserve case through
tho land office to final creation.
