Mr. Richardson sald ho proposed to es

offer additlonal testlmony along the oame
line for. the purpose. But thls faiW) to
smootli tho surfaca of the procecdings,
and both Mr. Carter ar.d Mr. Meiemth
uroso to strenuously objeot lo any auch

Jury rbtlro, and this was done.
For un hour the three attorneys dls
cussnd tho propoaltlon. Judgo Ingram |
paylng tho strlctest attentlon to the ar- j
gumonts. Mr. Carter and Mr. Meredith
used a dozeu or more law booka to clte i
reaaons why the testlmony should not
be udinllted, whlle Mr. Rlohardson used
nearly ns many In attemptlng to prove
that It wa3 admlsslble. FInally, Judge
Ingram sustalned the objext.on and the
jury wns brought bac4< to the room.
After Capt.nn Gasser had been on tho

"Did you ever eJ^ tne d"feiidant any

"Four hundred and nfty dollara."
"On June 10th." ? , ?
Mr. (Judo explalned that about $7d of

them, b-cause they had to feed thelr
stock at a dead oxpenso.
"Dld Gassor tote falr with hls ond of

Mr. Rlchardson objocted, and the de

tnined tho objection, and the questlon waa
"Did you ovor make oath that you had

Mr. Riohardson had the wltness explaln
how it happened that he made a differ?
ent oath- Mr. Gude sald he dld tt upon
tho advlce of a former attorney of Klng.
who told hlm that he was Just as deeply
lnvolved as was tho defendant.
WEINBRUN DID NOT KNOW.
Mr. Gude was excused and Mr. Weln

as were establlsheu by the two precedlng

Gude and Gasser.
A chock for $71.35 was introduced by
Mr. Rlchardson. Thls was Identltled by
Mr. Welnbrun as tho paper he had glven
