Fiieehold, N. J., May Z9. There Is
no good thing about Governor Parker
ho Is always easily found. When ho Is not
, In Freehold he Is In Trenton, and when ho Is
not In Trenton ho Is In Freehold. That Is to say,
when ba la not elsewhere or In Jledbank. It Is
In Freehold that tho aovernor run bis own vine
and fig tree with no one, not even Tom Scott, to
molest or make htm afraid. And this Is where
Iho Sum reporter found him, not exactly under
vines and fig trees, but In his dingy law offlco up
to his eyes In Coke (and Littleton) and all sorts
of legal and legislative rubbish, and apparently
as busy as llutler, or tho what's-hls-namo In a
gale of wind. You see It was Court week and
m the Governor being ono of the leading New
I Jereoy lawyers, had his hands full. Also his
bead. Not to mention his heart. Hut nobody It
ever too busy to see a SUM reporter J so after
I ills Excellency had hurriedly signed a few pa
I , . pers not railroad bills you may bo suro and
I ilcspatchcd a few client!, and looked at his
I ,", watch, and screwed up his courage, ho en
1 lered upon a dialogue as follows :
W OOV. rARKIH WilTINO.
IB Bum rteportcr Don't let me Interrupt you,
K Oovernor, for It you prefer, I'll call another time
when you are more at leisure.
Gov. Parker Well, no, sir; I always find now
to be tho best time for every thing ; so, what can
I do for you to-day, my friend?
SUN llepoiter Well, Oovernor, I called to ask
W It you would object to giving Tub Sun your
B 1 views as to tho coming Presidential election.
Gov. Parker Why as to that, sir, I don't know
as I have any views certainly none of Impor-
tanco enough to be published. Ilcsldes looking
K puzzled, things have got so mixed up In politic
of late that 1 can hardly keep tho run of them.
Sun Itcporter Hut, at least, you must have
somo opinion as to the chances of Mr. Greeley
m getting tho llaltlmore nomination 7
Gov. Parker I haven't, indeed, and havo boon
m too much occupied with other things to pay
much attention to the subject.
I Bun Heportor New Jersey would voto for
Oreeley, wouldn't the, If ho were endorsed at
Gov. Parker I couldn't say. Indeed, to be
candid, my friend, I should prefer not to make
I anystatemeiit about the situation until 1 havo
I bad more time to reflect upon It. I have not as
I yet expressed any views about It to anybody.
I , When tlio time comes I shall be ready to speak
li out. mid then It villi give mo pleasure to see you
'J be Oovernor Is one of the most progressive
men In the State, so that at heart you may be

questions as promptly as tliough he had been on
tlio witness stand In u Stanhope cose and bad
just kissed the Iltblo. And here Is about what
followed i .....
f I Hun Iteporter-Mr. Halght, what do you think
I of Oreeley for President!!
Congressman llalght-W ell, though I am a
Ijomocrut to tlio backbone, 1 dunk tvo cntildn t
liave a better ono. What wo want Is an honest
man, and If there's an honest man In tho coun
try it Is Horace Greeley. Ho has fought against
us Democrats these thirty years, and hasulvin
mo, among others, many hard knocks ; but be a.
ways fought on tho square, and, so for as 1 know,
never did a dishonest tliinu. Tlio first time I
Haw him was when I was a boy, and I wont down
, to tho North American Phalanx In tills county
and heard lilm muko u a sicoch about
THE llia.NITV OK iahon.
I was struck then with his sweet, slmplo ex
pression of countenance, his persuasive and
almost musical voice, but especially with Ills
evident honesty and manliness ; and from that
ilay to tills I have always had on almost tender
regard for lilm.
Hp.n Iteporler-Do you think tho Democrats
Convention ut llaltlmure will nominate Dr.
Coiigre'sman Hulght I think the chances are
that It will. I shall be there, and mean at any
rate to do what I toward It ; and If he is
nominated. I am willing to take off my coat and
stump Hie State for lilm. New Jersey would go
fur lilm wltli a rush.
SUN Iteporter-Hut suppose the II tlllmnre Con
vention should nominate an Independent ticket?
Comae. sman llalght (smiling)-Why, then, I
' r.uppiMu 1 should go for it ; nut my heart Is with
honest old Greeley, and I believe ho will be tho
Hun lleporter -What do you think of tho
I present Administration, Mr. IlalvhU
Congressman llalght I think It Is rotten to

Moreover, wo don t want a military government
In this countiy, and the people are getting tired
of It. They are also getting tired of tills two
'Iho Hun icporler bado adieu to tho worthy

TAI.KINO IIOnKE I1ETWEEN DHINKP,
wero talking Oreeley. and not only thai, but
tnlklng lilm up. And tho majority of them wero
Democrats dyed In tho wool, tliough tho land
lord of tho house, Mr. Patterson, Is a Itepubllean
dyed In tho same way. In other words, a Re
publican of tho old Greeley stamp.
This Patterson, by the war, Is a character, and
Is perhaps the most popular man In Freehold,
'iho Democrats like lilm so much that, notwith
standing ills ltcpubllcanlsm, they havo elected
lilm over and over again to different offices, and
this because not only of his good nature, his
shrewdness, and his originality, but his ahaoluto
honesty. Needless to say, after this, that tho
Ht'N reporter on Interviewing Patterson found
lilm strong for Greeley, and ready to go his pile
on him. In fact, as the Jolly landlord talks In
public oven better than In private, which Is say
ing a good deal, he declares that. If necessary,
ho will stump tho county forUld Honesty, les,
and carry It. too.
ltoturnlng from Freehold, tho 8 UN reporter
met Assemblyman llalght (brother of the Con
gressman) on tho road, and found lilm, too, O,
K. It appears there Is only ono member of
the Halght family, a " brother-in-law," w ho goes
for Grant; but then lis Is an Assistant Assessor.
Such Is life. Such, also, Is Now Jersoy.
Let Dsn Vonrheen nnd Wisconsin F.ldrlilge
Try llil Experiment.
Horo Is n slmplo llttlo experiment, v
which wo can prove tho existence of a small
jot In tho eyes. Shut your left eye, and with
the right ono look steadily at tho sawbuck Just
below, holding the paper ten or twelve inches
from tho eye.
Now move tho paper slowly toward tho eye,
which must bo kept Uxed on the sawbuck. At a
certain distance the other flguro-thc letter O
will suddenly disappear; but. If you bring tho
paper nearer. It will come sgaln Into view. 1 ou
may not succeed In tho oxtierlmcnt on tho first
trial, but with a little patlenco you can hardly
fall, and tho suddenness with which tho black
spot vanishes and reappears Is very striking.
Now, examination has shown that when It dis
appears, Its Imago fulls exactly on tbo spot
where tlio optic nerve enters, the eye thus prov
ing that spot to bo blind.

7b Us Editor of Thi Sun t
ant: I And In this day' sun, under Onto
of Lafayette, Ind., May SI, one of the reasons
for Daniel Webster Voorhees's position ex
plained, llut your correspondent omit to men
tion the fact that tho brother-in-law of Voor
hees, who received tho appointment of Collec
tor at Louisville (James Y. Luse), was at that
tlmo a resident of the State of Indiana, and In
conferring this appointment tho Great Gift
Taker was obliged to Import the gentleman from
another State, thus Ignoring tho applications of
the Speeds, Harlans, and the real fathers of tho
Itepubllean party In the State ct Kentucky men
who were real heroes to stand up In that Stata
In the defenco of tho party which placed him In
the Presidential chair. Surely some definite
bargain must have been made to havo secured
(Disposition for t'uo resident J Mother Stale,
and It will bo necessary for Dan Voorhees to ex
plain still farther his connection with other ap
pointments under tho present Administration
In the States of Indiana and Kentucky before
he Induces Democrats In those States to follow
his lead Into tho camp of tho enemy,
who can tell more If necessary.

Iho Democracy rejolco at tho opportunity now

these Is tho ring that has run Wlscoiitln for

vlllo Is situated In the heart of the so-calM
llurnt District of Indiana, which formerly al
ways gave tho Itepubllcans a larger majority than
any other district In tho Stato. In lffll Morton
had In this (Wayno) county over three thousand
majority. The Itepubllean majority hero In lSftS
defeated ex-Senator Thomas A. Hendricks for
Governor. This year Wayne county will glvo
Honest Horaco Groeloy at least fifteen hundred
majority. He will sweep the Old llurnt District
II. . - ..l.l.lu.1..
There are In this county over two thousand
Quakers, who, ever since ISM, have been tho
stanchest of Itepubllcans. This time they will
voto to a man for Honest Horaco Greeley, whom
they lovo and revere, llcstdoj, tho Hon. Gcorgo
W.Julian, tho old antl-slarcry champion, and
now tho most prominent leader of tho Liberal
Itepubllcans of Indiana, lives In this county, and
there aro thousands of tho old anti-slavery men
In Southeastern Indiana who, as In tho past, will
follow where ho loads them. Tho Democrats,
too, in this neighborhood, aro unanimous for
Oreeley. Grant's Hessian has no sympathizers
among his former party friends In this neighbor
hood. They think that vanity or something
worse has turned his head, and henceforth his
ravings against Oreeley fall on unwilling ears
among those who want to beat Grunt, and who
know that Honest Horace Is tbo man to do It.
Ho you see that the prospect of the good causo
In this part of Indiana, as well as In the wholo
State, Is thriving Indeed.
The people of Centrevllle and Wayno county
havo special reasons of their own to desire the
dofcat of tho Orant-Morton-Hollouay King In

Hollowar, his brother-in-law, formerly lived In
Centrovlllo. Everybody berokiiowstbatwt.cn
they left this placo a tow years ago, they wero
poorer than rhurrh-mico; and now those two
pets of President Grant, as well as all their nu
merous relatives, after feeding for a fow years
off the Federal crib, havo grown enormously
rich, although thev havo received comparatively
modest salaries. Morton owns hundreds of thou
sands of dollars' worth of real estate In Wayne
county and Indianapolis, and Holloway, Grant's
Postmaster In Indianapolis, lias risen from po
verty to great wealth slnco Grant's election to
the Presidency, ... ,
Tho Democrats of Indiana, with tho exception
of a few Incorrigible lloiirbons In tho Terro
Haute District, urgently demand that the Haiti
more Convention endorso the nomination of
Oreeley and Drown, and there aro few Democra
tic politicians with whom I have recently
conversed but express tho conviction that the
llaltlmore Convention will fulnl these expecta
tions and thereby prepare a Waterloo defeat
for the Present-Taker, and the venal were by

The Hon. (Icorgr II. Pendleton's Positive
Vom tlti liotton 11raU.
Wasihsoton, Mny 28. A jiosltlvo declar
ation of the position of the Hon. Gcorgo II.
Pendleton has bocn received hero by a member
of tho Illinois Democratic, delegation, and It
ran be stated that he unequivocally advocates
the acceptance of Mr. Oreeley bytho Democratic
Convtn'.Ion, Mr. Pendleton, considers that the
Democratic party has been placed In the posi
tion of a tacit adherence to the Cincinnati Con
vention, whereby all chance of electing a Demo
cratic ticket has boen destroyed. He therefore
favors the acceptance of Greeley, and says that
between Grant and Oreeley there can bo no hesi
tation as to the duty of Democrats.
In considering the objections raised to Gree
ley's past record, he urges that they aro ridicu
lous, and asks whether the same objections will
not apply to the other ltadlcals named at Cin
cinnati. It Is Dot tho past which Is to be taken
Into account, but the future conduct of the
candidate designated to represent tho Liberal
movement. If an unobjectionable record Is de
sired, a straight-out Democrat should have
been advocated from tho Urst : but be says It Is
not consistent to endorso one Radical and rcf uso
to support another.
Tho opposition to Greelev Is placed, ho says.
In two classes: First, thoso who aro not suffi
ciently clear In political sagacity to sco that
there Is no chance for a Democrat ; and second,
thoso who secretly desire the reflection of
Grant. The feeling of the tlmc, adds Mr. Pen
dleton, should bo abovo personalities, and all
should strive to secure a good and efficient Gov
ernment. The letter from Mr. Pendleton,
though not Intended for print, Is a forcible ono.
Plain Words from Ham Mnmhnll.
Tlmt veternn Democrat, tho Hon. Samuel
8. Marshall of Illinois has written a letter to tho
Cairo JJuUVdn, In which he says:
It Is my opinion. If nothing occurs to change
tho current of ptibllo opinion between this tlmo
and the lull of July, that the Cincinnati ticket
and platform will bo endorsed at llaltlmore;
and If so, they shall liave my hearty support.
Mr. Greeley's admirable letter of acceptance,
which has Just appeared, will do much toward
conciliating opposition, and will unquestionably
grOit!v enhance his chances for tho Presidency.
WItfi tho contentions S2'l animosities that
seem unhappily to prevail between bOIdo of our
Democratic papers In Illinois I have no concern,
except to deeply regret them. There never was
a time when a spirit of harmony, conciliation,
and forbcaranco was more needed than now. It
would be criminal in us to waste our strength In
a time like this, by worse than useless conten
tions among ourselves. It Is our destiny to
go as allies to the Liberal Itepubllcans. Let us
not go as a disbanded, demoralized rabble,
rendered Impotent by our own dissen
sions : but rather as a noble, organized,
and disciplined army of freemen let us march
with banners waving against tho strongholds
of tlio enemy to an assured victory. It Is a great
mistake to suppose that In this way conservative
Kepublicans would bo repelled from the cause,
'thousands of them all over the laud aro waiting
to Join their brethren who moved nt Cincinnati
as soon as tho success of tho movement Is as
sured, and they know that this can only be dono
by tho united support of the Democratic party.
It Is of the last Importance that tho corrupt
and dnngerous men whoso rule threatens In
tolerable evils shall bo driven from power. To
work In this causo is tho highest duty of the
citizen. Kvery other consideration should bo
subordinated to thK and for tills purpose no
thing Is more Important than tho cultivation of
a feeling of friendship, forbearance, and unity
among those who desire Its consummation.

There will ho nnd can ho no other cnndl
dato against Oraiit than Greeley, nor against
Greeley than Grant. Politicians like Mr. oor
hees, who try to undcrmlnu Greeloy, are work
ing directly for Grant! citizens who revolt
against Grant and Orantlsm must como to Oroo
Icy, becauso thore will be nobody olse to sup-
Grant Is decidedly the llrltlsh candidate, and
the London press support him. Not without
causo ! ho Is a serviceable llrltlsh slave, and
there Is nothing wonderful In seeing the llrltlsh
organ of tbo New York press devoting Itself to
his cause. The Kngllsh would rattier pay twenty
millions of dollars to secure Orant s reflec
tion than tho samo sum for reparation to our
ruined slilp-owners-whatwo call our" Alabama
claims." . , ,
Hut this preforenco, so warmly expressed by
tho Kngllsh for Mr. Grant, Is not, perhaps, a
very good reason why wo should raise lilm up to
bo our ruler for four years more. Indeed, the
triumphant election of Oreeley will be the best
answer wo can now make to tbo arrogance and
Impudence of Granville and Gladstone.

SAnATOOA, Mny 25. I met John Morris
Bey to-day. An eager shako of tho hand with a
word or two of mutual recognition was all that
was necessary before tho question of Oreeley s
chances for success became tho animated toplo
of conversation. .
"Well, John, what do you think of the old
philosopher's prospects for tho Presidency ?"
" Good enough, and dally Improving," was his
resdy answer. .... , . ...
"Do you think with his endorsement of the
llaltlmore Convention that his election will

"Certainly I do," ho said, "and although I

Ferry' Notion of Slldsuromrr Madness.
JVom the Chtcaco Tribune.
It Is Mr. Ferry's notion of what consti
tutes "mere midsummer madness" that we wish
particularly to deal with. The TJutred States
Treasury holds, and baa long held, quantity of
f old metal over and atiovo the amount needed
o pay Interest, redeem certificates, &c In
short, over nnd above Its needs ranging from
sixty to eighty millions of dollars. This metal
Is considered by both economists and business
men to be capital. The theorists and the " prac
tical men" are agreed m to that. It Is some
thing susceptible of use In tbo ordinary con
coma nf life and of Government. It Is worth
to tho United States 8 per cent, per annum If
used. If not used It Is worth nothing. Mr.
Oreeley holds (and among his economic views
we are glad to find one In which wo can entirely
concur with lilm) that to retain this gold In tho
Treasury when wo might use It by stopping 0
ier cent, tuteresl on an equivalent amount of
jonds Is a great pleceof folly. Senator Ferry,
on the other hand, holds that to sell this gold
and stop the interest would bo " mere midsum
mer madness." Judgo ye between thoso op-
Iiosed and warring opinions I Let Mr. Greeloy
io Judged by hls-wo ask nothing better.

Ilr.ADiNd, Mny 20. Conventions aro very
unreliable and uncertain affairs, especially where
Pennsylvania Democrats havo anything to do
with thotn. There was a tlio when tho Democ
racy of this Stato had wlso heads to lead them,
but nowadays tho management of tho party Is
given over to tricksters and demagogues. There
are still some men of great abilities and national
reputation who act In a proporklndof away
with tho party, but they havo nothing to do with
the management now. Thero la not a man of
national reputation at this Convention who will
In any degrco cxcrclso control. Still I do not
think there has been n convention held In the
Stato for many yoars whore tho avcrago Is as
high as this.
THS nOt'nnON ELTilENT.
The attendance Is very largo, and the delega
tions, as a rulo, aro fair In point of ability and
honesty; but the men who load the party and
attempt to control It are timid and supremely
sclOsh. For years past they have acknowledged
that tho true policy of tho party was to let the
dead past bury Its dead, but In splto of their
convictions they havo allowed themselves and
tho party to bo governed by a fow Dourbons.who
novcr represented a tltho of tho thinking portion
of tho people. Last year thoy did mako an at
tempt to bring tho party up out of tho old pro
slavery ruts, but It was In n halting, hatf-hcsltat-Ing
way, which thoy tried to explain away them
selves. What they will do this tlmo no fellow
can ever find out until It Is done. Tho Intelli
gence and patriotism of tho party Is undoubted
ly In favor of taking a firm and decided stand
for tho great Iteform movement, but tho
would-bo leaders aro afraid of endangering their
personal popularity. There Is some risk to bo
run undoubtedly, for thoy havo a perverse and
stiff-necked people to manage.
THE ATTITUDE Or THE I' II ESS.
The press of tho Stato Is without spirit or bold
ness, and, with a fow honorable exceptions,
tlaro not advocate any policy which might en
danger their subscription lists. There nrc, how
ever, exceptions, and tho rural press Is not, as
has been represented, solid for a straight-out
ticket at llaltlmore. Tho following list, com
prising tlio ablest and most enterprising papers
In tbo State, heartily favor tho endorsement of
the Cincinnati ticket: Tho Doylostown Wcmo

Tho Doylcstown Donocral, In speaking of tho
Convention says i
To accomplish Its great work the Convention needs
to exercise all the wisdom, prudence, snd forethought
thst Is possible In lueh s body, ontside of csndldates,
wehope the Convention will show by Its action that It
la fully alive to the actual political situation or the
btateand country, and will meet the Issues of the day
with statesmanlike understanding. Victory Is ours nrit
fsll If we do not throw swsy the golden opportunity.
A riOlIT TO HB AVOIDED.
Thero Is grave danger of tbo old llourbon ele
ment recklessly doing this very thing. If It Is
attempted to Instruct tho delegation for a
straight-out ticket. It will bo met firmly by
many of the best and wisest men In the Conven
tion, and a bitter Dght will ensue. Tbo careful
men, like Wallace, the Chairman of the Stato
Central Committee, denrecato anything of this
kind, and they will doubtless succeed lu restrain
ing the hot-headed Ilourbons.
Tho policy of theso men Is to humor tho
straight-ticket fellows, and send a delegation
which will go to llaltlmore praying for Oreeley,
but not daring to do anything for him. They
expect lilm to be endorsed, but they want to bo
left free to como back and say to their people,
"This is nno of our doing: we did our ocst to
stem tho tide, but It was too strong. It Is now
simply a question between Grant and Greeley,
and upon this Issuo you should not hesitate."
Mr. Wallace and some of the bost In the Con
vention declare that this Is tho only way that tho
thing can be managed without creating a split.
OUEELET DErOIlE Oil ANT.
The only argument urged against Greeley Is
ono worthy uf politicians only. Thoy say they
do not bellevo In his sincerity; that they have
no assurance that bo will recognize tho Demo
crats after he Is elected. If they could bo satis
fied that there was gulns to be a fair divvy,
and that the proper proportion would fall to
them, thoy would bo for him ton man. When
you meet a sensible man among the delegates,
and put the question to lilm squarely, "Du you
prefer Oreeley or Grant?" tho answer Is Invari
ably, "Greeley, if con e." I havo not even
met a llourbon who does not say un
hesitatingly that he will support Oreeley If
the llaltlinoro Convention endorses him. Upon
tho whole, I think It Is safe to say that the Con
vention to-morrow will either pass over tho
question of national politics in silence, or else
pass n resolution referring tho wholo subject to
tho National Convention, and pledging tho party
to stand by Its decision. Tlio Hon. ltlcharu

At nhont one o'clock yesterday morning
f even ruffians went down lloston road, Morrla

At Westchester road they encountered Offloer
Fitzpatrlck. Ho ordered them to bo quiet. They
defied lilm, and told him that thoy would glvo
lit in a thrashing If he did not go along about his
business. Seeing that they were too many for
him he let them get n llttlo in advance and then
followed. Thoy stopped at Peter Kaln's saloon
and began their uproar afresh. Fitzpatrlck
camo up and again told them to koep quiet.
"Let's kill the ."said one,
as ho mado for tho officer. I'ltzpatrlek threat
ened to knock the fellow down If ho advanced
any further, and added that ho would arrest
lilm If he did not go about Ids business.
Mr. Kaln persuaded them to go. and they
started toward Harlem. Noar the brldgo Officer
llatchclor also found It ncces-ary to order them
to keep quiet. Thoy threatened lilm If ho at
tempted to Interfere with them, and ho rapped
for nsslatiiiire. Threonf Iho seven run across the
brldgo and tho other four started toward West
Morrlsanla, swearing that they would kill an
otTtcor before they left the town.
ltoundsman Itllley and Officer Fitzpatrlck
responded to Ilatchelor's call, and following the
rowdies overtook them ai Dunham's piano fac
tory. They demanded why thu officers bad fol
lowed them. The roundsman told them to
movo on about their bulness and keep quiet or
he should arrest them. Then they began ston
ing the officers. Itllley and Fitzpatrlck eacli
seized a man. Ono of tho four ran away, and
tho other attacked Fitzpatrlck. Ho attempted
to arrest his assailant, but the fellow broko
away from him. Tho officers gave chaso and
tho fellow fell before bo bod ran far and
pretended that his leg hr.d been broken.
While Fitzpatrlck was stooping to raise tho
man, the first assailant sprang on his back; the
man who was down Jumped up, and both began
beating tlio officer. Ho drew his club and
knocked oneof them down. The other fellow
ran away a few steps and tired a shot. Tho man
who was down then fired another shot in tho
officer's face. For an Instant the smoko blinded
lilm and his assailant ran. Fitzpatrlck returned
the first twice without urlnglngtelther of them

The Trial of the Jersey City Ttlng-Thc 1,'ses
for the Prosecution Clnncd-An Employe
of Ihe King In Ike Jury llox.
Tho trial of members of tho Jersey City
Hoard of Works for mnlfcassnco was yesterday
continued In tho Hudson County Court. Tho
prosocutlon concluded their testimony.
The Attorney-General called the attention ot
tho Court to the fact that ono of the persons ou
tho panel had been In tho employment of the
Tho Juror explained that ha had stated that
fact to the Court, and desired not to bo called on
the official cases. President Olllett also ex
plained that tho man hail been employed only a
short tlmo as street Inspector, and at tho par
Ocular rcuiiost of tho property owners on tbo
street which was being Improved. , ,
Mr. Dixon opened for the defence. Hp said.
that the testimony was all circumstantial, anil JH
was no evidence. Tho Htato acted as though
the Jury wero to convict if the circumstances
detailed were consistent with guilt ; on tho con
trary, thoy must neutilt If ony reasonablo expla
nation could be offered. Mr. Welsh was appa
rently Implicated, because of having taken tho
acknowledgment of tbo deeds, and becauso or
the passage of money between lilm and rec
laud, Mr. Welsh was a Commissioner of Deeds,
lived near Vreeland, had boen In tho habit of
taking acknowledgments for him, and has only
done so at the house, becauso Mrs. Vreeland
was an Invalid. Tho money transactions
between lilm and Vreeland covered only
tho amount of money due on somo
property In which they were mutually In
forested. As to tho transactions between Vreo
land and llumsted, ho held that they were only
legitimate, and that It could bo proved that In
stead of n division of tho profits Mr. llumsted
had received only n return of his own money
with legal Interest. Vreeland had doubtless
mado money out of his transactions with tho
city, but there was no law or Justice In prevent- JH
Ing film from doing so.
Commissioner Welsh was the first witness
called for tho defenco. Ills testimony covered
the ground marked out by counsel.
