NEW YORK, May 23. Attorneys
for the prosecution sprung' a tremen
dous sensation today in the case of
Secretary Heike of the Su-jar Trust,
who is on trial for complicity in the
short-weight methods by which the
Government was defrauded of mil
lions of dollars of imports.
The attorney for the Government
called at a witness former Sunerin
tendent Spittcr of the Williamsburj
docks, who has been serving a sen
tence' of two years' imprisonment for
his connection with these same
Helke's' attorneys protested against
the appearance as a witness against
their client of a man who is under
sentence of, imprisonment. This was
met by a. further sensation, when the
Government attorneys revealed the
fact that President Taft had on May
10 issued a pardon for Spitzer, and
restored him to his rights-as a cit
inert. Spitzer bcin" ut on the stand tes
tified to tho detailed methods by
which the weighing frauds were per
petrated. DAILY SCORES OF

camped ant for tho night.
Tills mr.rnlng Schcld's feet wore In
such a condition that ho' could not
