German Emperor, Wednesday, May 14, tele
graphed hs follows to the President of the
United States at Washington:
I am still under the deep impression
created by the splendid and cordial recep
tion of my brother. Prince Henry, by the
citizens of the United States of America.
"In the speeches with which he was
greeted the fact was often mentioned that
my ancestor, Frederick the Great, main
tained a friendly attitude toward the joung
American Republic during the course of
her formation, thereby laing the corner
stone of the friendly relations which have
alwajs existed between our two countries.
"The example set to mo by the great Kins
I Intend to follow. I wish to commemorato
the visit of Prince Henry by a gift to the
people of America, which I request jou to
accept In their name.
"I intend to present a statue. In bronze,
of Frederick the Great to the United States,
to be erected In Washington, on a place
which you will kindly choose. May this
gift be looked upon as a lasting sign of tho
Intimate relations which have been success
fully fostered and developed between our
two great nations.
(Signed) WILLIAM, I. R."
ltoosevelt Thanks the Emperor.
President Roosevelt's reply, which was
sent In German, translated, 13 as follows:
"Washington, May 13 Emperor William,
Wiesbaden: I highly appreciate our
grand, friendly offer. I thank ou heartily,
therefore, in the name of the United States.
I will submit it Immediately to Congress.
It will no doubt be to the greatest pleasure
of our people to receive from your hands a
statue of the famous ruler and soldier, one
of the greatest men of all times, Frederick
the Great, and It Is especially appropriate
that the statue should be erected in tho
city of Washington, the capital of the
Republic, upon the birth of which he looked
with such friendly interest.
'Tor this new proof of our frlndly feel
ings towards our country I thank jou In
.the name of the United States. Your gift
will surely be considered here as a new evi
dence of the friendship existing between
the two nations. We hope and believe that
this friendship In the coming cars will be
come still stronger. It is a hopeful sign for
the welfare of all mankind that in the be-
g'nnlng of this century the American and
German people are working together In a
sense of happy friendship."

bine which existed among the Delegates at
the time of the Suburban btll-Judge Harv ey
protested vigorously on the ground that
unless it could be shown that a combine
existed for evil purposes tlie testimony
should not bo allowed.
Judge Rjan finally allowed him to answer
"There was a combination of nineteen
men which existed," he Eaid. "Tho mem

frequent caucuses, but we In the minority

"Sometimes these meetings kept us wait

Holtcamp said Lehmann and Murrell were
In the combine. He sat net to Lehmann
and often the latter, he said, would tell
him beforehand nhlch measures would
pass and which would be killed. He said
the combine was composed of men from all
parties, without respect to politics. He said
ne was present the night the members of
the combine barred the doors of the
House chamber, so that they could pass
the Suburban bill before the Deputy Sher
iffs on the outside could serve them with
tho injunction from the Supreme Court en

W. L. Sturdevant and Fred O. Zachrltz,
former members of the House of Delegates,
were put on the stand for corroboration
evidence. Zachrltz, however, did not seem
to know much about what was going on In
John Meitert, a clerk In the Circuit Court,
said he had known Lehmann for several
years. Shortly after the indictment was re
turned against Lehmann, he said he met
Lehmann In a street car. Lehmann then
stated he knew about the Stock matter.
Frank Lange, a Deputy Sheriff, testified
to serving a copy of the Supreme Court ln
Lehmnnn's Request of Relni.
Paul Reiss. a member of the House ,of
Delegates from the Twenty-eighth Ward,
closed the State's case and gave the most
damaging evidence against Lehmann of
fered in the trial. Lehmann seemed to be
nervous while Relss was on the stand.
"Did jou have any conversation with
Lehmann In regard to the $75,000 placed In
the safe deposit box at the Lincoln Trust
Company by Philip Stock?" asked Mr.
T had a conversation with him on the
subject, yes, sir," said Mr. Relss. "Leh
mann called at my office In the Walnwright
building shortly after my election In April.
1901 I had been acting as his attorney in
the collection of some fire Insurance. After
we had settled my fee he remarked, 'By the
way. I want to ask you about a matter of
Interest to the boys of the old House. It is
a matter for lawyer to take up. Now. you
are a member and one of us, and are best
prepared to do It ' He asked me If I Knew
Phil Stock He then told me about the
$75,000 being placed in the safe deposit box

passed. He said Stock held one of the kev n

get the money.
"Lehmnnn said the boys of the House had

Upon reassembling at 7.30 the court or
dered the jury to bo taken out for th
reason that counsel for the defense had
Hied a demurrer, and wished to anrue It be-
' fore tlie court. When the jury had been
retired judge Harvey for the defense moved
that the testimony of I'aul Relss be strick
en out. In support of this motion ho argued
that the communications betw een Reiss and
Lehmann were privileged, being governed
by the law, which protects a client in Ms
communications with an attornev. urless
J It be shown that a crime was being cov
"It Is not a question of the crime being
committed," said Judge Ran, "but the
effort to cover the fruits of a crime."
Continuing, Judge Harvey argued that tho
fact that Lehmann was a member of the
alleged combine in the House of Delegates
did not imply that he knew of the cxistanco
of $73,0-0 in the Lincoln Trust Company's
vaults "for the purpose of bribery" as al
leged In the lnd'ctment. Special stress was
laid upon the point that Lehmann might
have known of the exlstance of the $75 000
in the Trust Company vaults without know
ing for what "purpose it was to be used."
The defendant's counsel dwelt upon the
clause that Re ss's testimony was the only
evidence tho State had introduced to sup
port the charge of perjury and that It
should be striken out for the reason that
the communication between lleiss and Leh
mann were privileged under law, Ilciss hav
ing been cmpIoed as Lehmann's attor-
In reply, Mr. Folk stated thit Lehmann's
communication to .Mr. Itelss was not prlvl-
leds,ed for this reason: "That Lehmann
had endeavored tp Interest Reiss In secur
ing the mone from the Lincoln Trust Com
pam's vaults, and had he succeeded Reiss
would have been an accessory to the crime
of bribery. If one goes to an attorney to
further a crime," said the Circuit Attorney,
"the communication 1st not privileged. It is
the duty of the attorney to make known
what has been told to him, and the law
requires him to do so." References were
cited in support of Mr. Folk's position.
In answer to the second statement by
Judge Harvc. that the testimony of Mr.
Relss had not been corroborated, Mr. Folk
said that it was sustained by tho hlghes
testimon, namely the conversation which
took place before any investigation began.
"In this conversation," Mr. Folk said,
'Lehmann stated th-it the money was in
the Lincoln Trust Company valuta, the
kejs being held by Philip Stock and John
IC Murrell." It had also been proved by
circumstances, he said, that the "combine"
In the House of Delegates knew all about
the $73,000. and the close frlendshin exlst-
ing between Murrell and Lehmann was con
, elusive evidence of the letter's acquaint
ance with the deal proposed by tho Subur
Mr. Folk urged the point that Lehmann's
testimony before the Grand Jury affected
the cises of Kratz, Murrell and other per
sons Indicted, and was, therefore, material
to the Inquiry. That the perjury alleged
was to be considered In the general scope of
the Suburban Railway investigation.
J arum Permitted to Go Home.
Judge Ran interrupted Mr. Folk's argu
ment with the remark that there was no
possibility of finishing the case before 10.30,
and he would not keep the Jury waiting.
The jury was brought In and a special In
junction given to members as to secrecy,
and then dismissed.
Judge Ran, after the Jury departed,
asked Mr. Folk to take up the subject
brought out In the demuner filed by the
defenso to tho testimony of Lehmann be
fore the Grand Jury. The Circuit Attorney
"S0 Vh. " W! tJJ 'w?.
and comment upon the technical legal
points He maintained the right of the
Grand Jury to ask general qucsUons. saying
that it was not necessary to Inform Leh
mann exactly what person or persons were
being Investigated, or were to be Investi
gated. " The lnvestlgitlon was general," said Mr.
Tolk. "It njs a matter of determining
what Councllmen, or members of the House
of Delegates, were Implicated 111 the brib
er', and to whom the 575,000 wero to be
paid. It was not necessary for the Grand
Jury to Inform Lehmann what particular
Indictment they had under consideration
when his testimony was taken."
Mr. Bishop followed Mr. Folk with legal
Judge Ryan stated that it seemed to him .1
conviction would stand upon the point made
by tho prosecution that false statements
made before the Grand Jury, even after the
Investigation of the Murrell and Kratz cases,
constituted perjury. Judge Harvey resumed
his argument upon the point "that the
Grand Jury must be engaged In the Investi
gation of a specific case when false testi
mony before it can be construed as per
Jurj. 'What In Essential Evidence.
"I haven't changed my mind about the
matter." said Judge Ran after the de
fendant's counsel had concluded. Mr. Folk
read from decisions of the Supreme Court
of Missouri showing that the Grand Jury,
even though there Is no charge against a
specific person, but onl a general charge,
such as that "gambling has taken placo
In the country within the past twelve
months," has the right to ask a witness
concerning his knowledge or confirmation
as to the general charge. If the witness
denies knowledge, when he has It, this con
stitutes perjury. That It is not essential
in establishing the charge of perjury to
have the Grand Jury engaged In Investigat
ing charges against any particular person.
'The indictment in this case," said Mr.
Folk, "Is even more specific than Is neces
sary." Judg- Ryan announced that he would
take the matter under advisement. Court
was adjourned tinUl 10 this morning.

Women to Write Her for Advice.
In the vast retail establishments of large cities, many women aro
employed as saleswomen.
Men formerly held the positions that women now hold, and while
women's organism is less strong than men's, they .ire expected to do the
same work. Their duties compel them to be on their feet from morning
to night, and many of them7 in .1 short time, contract those distressing
complaints called "female diseases."
Then occur irregularities, suppressed or painful menstruation,
weakness, indigestion, leucorrhcea, general debility, and nervous pro;
They aro beset with such symptoms as dizziness, faintness, lassi
tude, excitability, irritability, nervousness, sleeplessness, melancholy,
" all-gone " and " want-to-be-left-alone " f eelings, blues, and hopelessness.
In such cases there is one tried and true remedy. L-ydia K. Pink
ham's Vegetable Compound at once removes such troubles. The
following letters prove this. They also prove the value of Sirs. Pink
