led up- to her renunciation of all faith
in spirltp. •".. • \u25a0\u25a0
. "I gave Mrs. Orloff $150 to Invest for

and ! of 'Doctor Wintlirop.' lier guiding:

at Mrs." Orloff 's place and told, me i to

Mrs. Shaw. "Yes, at' the" time . I "be
lieved : -lt;."waa i the'voice.'of my- father

plcions. -It was always money, money,
money; money, witlu these, spirits. That
made me, doubtful. I -went into it as
a religion, but 1 it .wsTs
merely a money -making business to
defraud the. public.".
In her direct : testimony in reply to
questions by; Prosecutor- McXutt she
stated that at the rooms of the me
dium there were two • trumpets, -"and
through these came the voices of her
father and of "Doctor ; Winthrop,"
urging her to have every • confidence in
Mrs. Orloff and ; to give her money fqr
Investment. The lights were turned
out and the trumpets touched her.; on
the head and shoulder .when they spoke.
"My father's voice was weaker than
that of ; Doctor, Winthrop," Mrs. Shaw
testified. | "I was^told Doctor "Winthrop
had more' strength simply because he
had spoken more ; often. Mrs. Orloff
told me not to be alarmed about my
money because every time she had in
vested under the; guidance- of Doctor
\u25a0Winthrop. she. had been successful."
"Did these trumpets sing or dance
around?" asked Attorney Cook.
"I couldn't -say," said Mrs. Shaw.^
"The trumpets were there before the
lights went outo and then- they
touched me and spoke, urging me to
invest." .The witness that six

BRILL IS READY
FOR FISH TRUST
Judge Cabahiss Fixes Thursday
for Trial of Western Fish
Fickert Will : Proceed Against
Corporations Until Immu
nity Is Decided
-The ' district • attorney announced in
Judge Cabannls' court 'yesterday that
he had^ decided to proceed _ with the
trial of . the Western fish company, ac
cused of violating the Cartwrlght anti
trust act, delaying the prosecution of
the individual . members of- the , trust
until further consideration had been
glyen the. claim that "they had gained
Immunity through testifying before
Senator E. I.- Wolfe's senate-commit
tee. Thursday was fixed as th© date
of ; the trial.*
. Both District Attorney Fickert and
his assistant, James F. Brennan, ad
mitted that the claim of Immunity made
It \u25a0at least doubtful whether a case
could be made against them. It was on
Judge Cabanlss* suggestion that the
Western fish company was chosen- as
the defendant to be tried first.
Attorney W. M. Madden moved for
the dismissal of the indictments against
the 18 whom- he says have taken an
immunity bath, but th^e prosecution ob
jected and Judge Cabanlss refused to
grant the motion. These cases also
went over to Thursday.
A. Trapanl, whom It was proposed to
try Monday last, when the claim of
immunity was sprung. Is the president
of the Western fish company. Accord-
Ing-, to the testimony In the. civil case
tried three months ago in Judge Hunt's
court, Trapani was one of the most
active members of the combination, he
and A. Paladlni being practically the
"The" case against the Western fish
company is the case against Trapanl,"
said Fickert yesterday. "We will in
trodnce the same testimony that we
had intended to. produce on the trial of
Trapani. The conviction of the com
pany will result in breaking up the
trust .as effectually as the conviction
of Trapani •or any other member. The
only difference is that a sentence of
Imprisonment can not be asked for. The
court may, however, impose a fine of
$5,000 on the corporation."
