That Is all "
Circuit Attorney Folk eidently was satis
fled with the turn 6t affairs brought about
by Judge Clark's cross-examination.
George F. Robertson, who at one time
was one of Kelly's boon companions, and
upon whom one of the former House mem
bers who should always know says Kelly
placed great confidence, was next called.
WITH KELLY ON BILL.
Circuit Attorney Folk drew from Robert
son that It was Kelly who wanted the Suo
urban to pay $100,000 for the passage of the
bill. . Bersch and Faulkner, the witness
- said, were the others who favored $100,000.
Robertson also stated that he had had a
conference with Kelly about the comblns's
action becoming public
"Where was that?" Circuit Attorney r Folk
"In. Bench and .Lehroann's office, at
Broadway and .Locust."
"What was sald7"
"Kelly accused me of telling It. I tali
dim I had not talked to a newspaper re
porter about it. He declared ha had said
nothing about It to any person outside of
"Who was there?"
"Helms, Bersch, Lehmann, Kelly and Z."
"How did it come about?"
"Lehmann accused, Kelly of telling' it. Ha
Cenled It and said I must have told It. I
also denied It."
Attorney Rowe, cross-examining Robert
son, began by asking:
"Lehmann accused Kelly of making the
statements which caused publication, did

statements It was your

violated this oath, have you not?"
-In January, 1M2, yon swore that you
knew nothing about the 175,000, did sou
"How many times atnee then have you
1 sworn that you did not know of It?"
i Robertson was then asked' about his tes
timony at the Faulkner trial, which was
before he turned State's evidence, and then
Charles W. Holtcamp was called.
Colonel Holtcamp was a member of the
.Bouse of Delegates, but not In the cam
bine. He declared that KeUy did belong to
turn for his vora ,
John Helms was next called and was
asked, among other things, on cross-examination,
what was the largest amount he
had ever received for his vote. He replied
that'tbe ttSOO paid to him by Kelly for his
.vote on the lighting bill was the largest.
"What was the least you received?"
I dont remember."
"Was It not a stove?"

William IX. Xamblyn corroborated the
other witnesses as to the combine meetings
, and Kelly's presence when the 175,000 Sub
urban deal was under discussion. He was
cross-examined ss to his oath of office. He
said he did not remember much about" It.

William -H. Leo, -president of .the Mer-chants'-Laclede

to testify as to Kelly's testimony" before the

given before the Jury until It had been
shown whether Kelly was under arrest at

WHILE USE TESTIFIES.
The Jury was withdrawn by order of Judge
Ryan, and Mr., Lee was questioned closely
as to the date of Kellv'a testimony. He was
asked if Murrell and Kratx had not already
been Indicted when Kelly appeared and an
swered that he did not remember distinctly,
but thought they had.
.."Richard W. BhaPleishT also a mmbr of
the Grand Jury, was questioned along; the
same lines. Judge Clark then, addressing
Judge Ryan, declared that Kelly was at a
disadvantage when before the Grand Jury.
He said that had Kelly exercised Ms con
stitutional right and refused to testify on
the ground that' it would Incriminate him.
It would have been to his disadvantage, and
would have sdrely resulted In his1 Indict
ment or an. Information being filed by the
Judge Ryan. In passing upon this conten
tion, declared that the Supreme Court has
decided that a witness Is his' own Judge In
such a case, and that It gave him no right
to testify falsely when he found himself In
such a dilemma.
Judge Krum. who. had come Into the ease
during the afternoon, objected to- the wit
nesses' testimony on the. ground that the
Grand Jury, having returned 'Indictments
gainst Krats and Murrell. or .voted upon
them, they were not making Inquiries on a
material point at na time Kelly was called
Judae Ryan, overruled "this objection, say
ing he had passed upon it in other, oases,
and the Jury was recalled. Messrs. Lee and
Shaplelgh, then completed their testimony,
and a recess .for supper .was announced tan

Jury, but the line of inquiry was objected
to by the attorneys for Kelly. The ques
tion of admission of the testimony was
briefly argued. -Judge Ryan sustained .the
objection, cutting off further examination
Circuit Attorney Folk then announced
that the State's case was all tin.
The defendant's attorneys promptly In
troduced a demurrer to the evidence. In
support of which both Judge Krum ond
Judge Clark argued at length, mainlining
that the evidence had not proven all set
forth In the Information. The Circuit At
torney and his assistant, Orrick Bishop,
replied, contending that the State's rase
had been made; that It was shown Kelly
had possession of the 715,000 vsed in the
Suburban deal, and that before the. Grand
Jury he had declared complete Ignorance,
save "what he. had seen In the newspapers
and some 'joking; remarks made in a sa
loon. Judge Ryan seemed to be in doubt about
tendering his opinion on the demurrer. He
examined carefully the record of the Grand
Jury testimony, and still appeared ure
clded. Then lie addressed questions suc
cessively to Mr. Folk and Judge Clark, re
opening the arguments of the attorneys.
Judge Clark asserted that under the law
the State was required to prove exactly
what was set forth in the indictment; that,
if a man was charged with stealing a white
horse that had a white star. on Its fore
head, and If It were proven that the man
stole a horse, but one"whlch had no such
star, that thls'defendant musi nevertheless
Under this construction of the law. Judge
Clark averred that, whether or no the
State proved that Kelly knew of the $75.CJ0
and had denied his knowledge to the Grand
Jury, the court should order an acquittal"
on we ground mat. tne mate Had not proven
the further allegations in the information.
The evidence shows," said Judge Krum,
expounding this point, "that if any perjury
was committedN it was not ' the perjury
charged in the information." , - ,
. Mr. Folk's contention,, as repeated and J
oacaea up ny reierence to 'court decisions,
wasflrst. that guilt had. been proven, and
that the proof substantiated the lnfbrmk
tlon; that the Information -charged "Kelly
with having knowledge', of tne money, and
the purposes for which ttvwas'fo be used:

seem to be belled by tho course .that' tho.
Government has pursued In Cuba. What
has been done In Cuba by Mr. Carden, the
British Minister, Is entirely In line, 'with
the policy of that Government at the out

Attention -was" called to the action of
Great Britain In Joining hands with". Ger

Great Britain to withdraw.
Since that time the British Ministry has
been using all or the artifices atvlts-com-mand
to make it appear to America 'that
that country was favorable to the 'United
States. The original action with Germariy
is In keeping with the action of. Great
Britain in Cuba.
Through all of -'the negotiations in Cuoa a

from reaching an agreement. Much of It
was subtle, and only after great difficulty
on the part of the representatives of this
Government was the responsibility for the

It was to have been expected that Ger
many would take the lead In a campaign
to make the negotiation of a reciprocity
treaty futile, but, as a matter of fact, Ger

has contributed very' little to the difficulty.
JIt. Carden has really been the head and

'-The intrigues of the British Minister, it
Is learned, have gone to extraordinary
lengths. The British Legation at Haana

to have betn to prevent consummation of

Justice James D. Fox of the Sunreme
Court, next" to belns known as 'an able
Jurist, would rather be distinguished as a
hunter. When he was a Judge- down In
Frederlcktown. ho loved nothing .-better
than to gpv hunting. Now the Judge is not
a small man In fact, his mental, bri adth
can almost bo compared to his ihyslcal
girth. So when he goes hunting he usi ally
stipulates that he be not expected to keep
up with the remainder of the party.
One day when he was a Circuit Judge he
was invited to go, on a hunting trip. H
accepted. As usual, he fell behind. And
there temptation befell him. A. fine wild
turkey In some unaccountable way got di
rectly in froat of his gun Just at the time
the Judge- pulled the trigger. It Was. a
happy dayfor the Judge when that turk--bade
a-dleu to this world. It was the first
turkey the Judge had ever killed.
But It was out of season, and Judgs Fox
is a. conscientious man.
Therefore, when he returned to Freder
lcktown he hunted up the foreman of the
Grand Jury, confessed that he had killed
the turkey, and told the "foreman to see
that an Indictment was returned against

explained the Judgep"and. bes'des. I should
like to have It made a matter or record
that I killed a turkev." s

you." promised the foreman. '
: "When the Grand Jury was next sent to
its room. Judge Fox especially emphasized
the importance" Of 'observing the game law.
However, there was no Indictment when the
first partial report was made. The Judge
again mentioned the game law. and .all
that no one, no matter what, his position,
should be spared. Still no Indictment -for
killing that turkjv. Again the game-law

look at the foreman. Finally, In despair,
the Jiidge dismissed the Jury, even though
no Irdictment had been returned, against
"The Jurymen discharged. Judge Fox
sought" his friend, the foreman. "Why
didn't you return that indictment?" de
manded the 'Judge.
" Well. I tell'yop.' expln'ned"the Juryman.
