M. luoiije, that Is Townsend Well
hu said do ou know nn thing about
It, I said no. I looked nt tho note and
simply saw the nnme lsol theie mid
wondered what It could be, nnd when
I learned or Townsend's connection
with It, I wondered just what It wns
and It looked like tho Sheriff's sig
nature all right nnd bo I wondered
Just how Townsend was coming In on
Unit matter because Townsend had
alre.nl spoken to me or lsol. lie had
said that Isol wanted to know what
my personal opinion was of Iwilel, as
lo whether It wns to remain closed or
whether the authorities would docldo
In tlmo to allow It to ro-oiien. Then I
had replied to Townsend nt that time.
It dldut matter whnt no personal
opinion was, but ofllclilly my opinion
was that it was to bo closed, that wua
tho order. So 1 simply mi thu
strength of tho whole lwlkl agitation
nnd the nnme of lsol being on this
noto ami Townscml's name In Conner
lion wllli It nlsii, I did not know whit
to think nbout it, dud I kept tho mat
ter to no belt for bun oral (I.ijh and
thought it ocr, nnd finally I thought I
would speak to Townsend about it to
bco what connection he had with It
That Is ntter thinking It iner several
q. Now can on fix the time about
when jou spoke to Townsend nbout
It? A. Woil, I don't know whether
It wns I think it waB within a week
that I spoko to Townsend about It.
0. Thnt would bring It up to about
pondering oer wheio he could got
tho money, Townsend passed lij tho
olllco and on thu spur of the moment
hi spoko to him about the money and
asked him It ho had uti) read) money
that ho could loan Mm nt that time;
th it ho was plllklu Town-find Mild
thnt ho didn't have that amount of I
money, but thnt ho would see what ho
could do for tho Sheriff milling his
fi lends, nnd I don't recollect whether
the Sheriff Bald or whither It was
Townsend Bald at that time, that ho
had gono to some of his Japaneso
merchant friends, but that ho could
not get uti) moiiej from them, t.o ho
bad xi on lsol, who was a fill ml of his

note but If It was to Townsend he
was to hao some nllur'slgnaturo us
