MR. DOLE AS A
Cites His Views on Resignation of
Cblif Justice Judd.
ty'tilons bj Hagoon, Gear md Hnmphriis
Mr. Hatiw.ll Official Delegate No An-
swtr Ricelnd from tbe PrtMdtnt.
Following Is the testimony of
President Dolo given beforo tho Su
preme Court relative to tho resigna
tion of Chief Justice Judd:
Frear I would like to say that upon
xamlnlng tho affidavits filed In this
cao tho Court feels that It Is not In
fall possession of tho facts of tho
case. Tho affidavits arc cither silent
or Indefinite with regard to somo points
that may have a bearing on tho ques
tion, an Important question not only In
this case but In all cases that may
omo beforo tho Court. Wo feel that
wo should not docldo tho question with
out a full knowledge of tho facts, and
eo we havo called you In nt this time
for the purposo of taking further testi
mony, and havo requested tho Presi
dent and Mr. Albert P. Judd Jr. to
attend for tho purposo of giving testi
mony. Whatever testimony Is now
taken will bo considered by tho Court
the same as the allldavlts of yesterday,
subject .to objections. I will ask tho
president a few questions, and then
counsel may ask further questions or
cross examine If they choose.
Mr. Gear For whom Is this testi
Frear For tho benefit of tho Court.
Mr. Gear In behalf of the Attorney
Frear For tho Information of tho
Court in order that tho Court may bo
able to render n decision In tho caso
on all tho facts.
Interests of the Republic.
Mr. Cooper Is tho Republic In this
particular case, as a Republic, responsi
ble for this lssuo one way or the
other? If so tho Attorney General's
Department would bo glad to know
what Its position Is. If tho defendant
In this particular case Is Interested In
the issue tho Attorney General's De
partment would like to know It. Tho
reason we havo not taken part Is be
cause wo havo not seen that tht. Re
public, as a government, was Interested
In the Issue.
Frear It Is a matter of discretion as
to what part tho Attorney General
shall take In the matter. I suppose tho
Attorney General's Department In this
particular case is simply Interested In
representing the defendant, and tho In
terests of tho Attorney General's De
partment would bo Involved In this.
Mr, Dole's Testimony.
Sanford D. Dolo, being duly sworn
testified as follows:
Frear Mr. President, In referring to
your affidavit dated yesterday and filed
In this case, you stated that on tho
27th day of December, 1899, you re
ceived a letter from tho Chief Justlco
In words and figures following: The
letter Is dated December 4th. I should
like to ask you how you received tbnt.
By what means was It transmitted to
A. Mr. Albert P. Judd Jr. brought It
to me personally.
Q. On tho 27tn day of December,
t899? A. Yes.
Q. The letter which you wrote to the
President of tho United States Is dated
Decomber 28, and It Is stated that im
mediately upon tho receipt of tho let
ter of resignation the letter of De
cember 28 was sent to ttie President
Later In the affidavit you Bay on receipt
of said letter of resignation from tho
Chief Justlco I Informed tho son, Al
bert P. Judd Jr., acting as I under
stood as his attorney In fact, that I de
clined to accept said resignation until
hearing from tho President of tho
United States In tho promises, having
referred tho matter of the appointment
of a new Chief Justice to him for cer
tain reasons. I would like to ask It
this Information or tho statement to
Albert P. Judd Jr. was made beforo or
after the letter of December 28 was
sent to the President. Tho words of
the affidavit being "having referred"?
Mr. Gear I wish an objection en
tered on tho record to that testimony
because it Is Incompetent, irrelevant
and Immaterial, any statement of tho
President to Albert P. Judd Jr., not
binding tho Chief Justice.
Mr.' Magoon I nlso wish to object
, to It on tho ground that I think It will
make no difference In what way the
question Is answered. If President Dolo
referred tho matter to tho President
of the United States, as far as he Is
mncerned. It Indicates he la neutral
In the matter, neither accepting nor
rejecting tbe resignation, and it he did
nt accent or reject It, and did not ex
ercise the power itself, but delegated It
to another, it must or necessity do an
acceptance or. me resiguuuuu.
Statements to Artbct Judd.
Frear This question Is asked for tho
purpose or more particularly with
refennce to contemplated future ques
tions. Before asking further questions
I wish to have tho statement already
made by President Dole explained.
Q. Was this statement to Albert P.
Judd Jr. to tho effect that you declined
to accept tho resignation made when
tho resignation was prcscntcu to you or
at a later date?
A. My impression is that I remarked
to him to that effect at the time and
also afterwards, but 1 do not remember
how definitely I mado It I may have
made it as a suggestion at the time.
Q, What If any communication did
Mr. Albert P. Judd Jr. mako to you
as coming from his father at the time
he presented tho letter or resignation
to you in connection therewith?
Mr. Gear I object to that on the
ground that It Is Incompetent, Irrele
vant and immaterial. Any statement
made by Albert F. Judd Jr. could not
bind the Chief Justice. Tho Chief Jus
tlco could not dclegato any statement
through his son that would bo binding
on nlm, and no authority has been
shown in any way. Tho Chief Justlco
having communicated in writing any
further statements must also bo In
writing. I further object on tho
ground that It is hearsay ovidenco.
Mr. Magoon I also wish to object on
tho ground that it Is Incompetent, Ir
relevant and Immaterial. I submit that
this Is a dangerous thing to allow ver
bal statements or hearsay to enter Into
matters of this sort and Is contrary to
tho rule. You cannot qualify an ab-
