continued his argument In the star
routo trial this morning In opposition
to theadmlssimi of evidence concern
ing thc.l'rlou drafts. For the sake of
argument ho had assumed the charge
Tho court said the question at issue
was the velevAiiov of the ollered evi
dence. If received it would only tend
to prove the erltno on Rrady's part
without his associates and that was not
primer, for none of thu defendants
could bo tried for Individual crime un
der the Indictment. Therefore the of
fer Was excluded.
General Rnuly then resumed the
Witness stand. Some questions were
asked about an outsldo route when Wil
son gave notice if tho prosecution

up other routes, no would Jtiel called
upon to no into tho subject at length,
The com t replied that the rules of
law could not be released merely to
save lime, That hail long ago ceased to
bo a subject for consideration.
Tlio Inquiry turned upon tlie con
gressional investigation and the wit
ness reiterated intmy of the answers
given during its progress. Rllss asked
If the witness knew what member of
comrress interested himself in thu

ul must decline to say."
Rllss again put tlie question and the
witness said he had no objection to
naming tho persons who Initiated tlie
movement but ho hail objections to
naming the persons who bail con
cerned themselves to subsequent
orders. Tlio Nevada honulors and
representatives and Utah delegation
had Interested themselves in the routo,
among other senators.
Rllss remarked tho papers did not
show tho endorsements ot any of tho
puuons named. NUnes was
naked to explain his rea
sons for cutting down the servicp.
upon the Mineral Park noclie route,
and restored It within tho short time.
He said tlio service had been re
duced because It was not properly exe
cuted. Afterwards It was represented
to them that trroat Injustice bad been
dpno the contractor.
Rllss Inquired who had represented
that the reduction was. Injustice to the
contraotors, t ...
"J believe that phase of the question
wan also presented with great stress by
Senator JMumb or KaiiKis, who said
lie was a friend of the
contractors, and knew Injustice
had been douu them." Witness was
convinced tlio (unit was Willi the sub
contractors, who delayed trips at tlio
Colorado river, and that if the service
was restored tho contractor would
nuiki. It a good service.
Rllss called attention to tho fact that
tho reason given in tho Indorsement
on tlie basis of restoring service did
not mention tho contractor, but re
ferred only to tho importance of the
route' as a connecting link in a
railway Hystem. "Was that reason
true''' ho indeed the witness,
who responded In tho alllriuative.
That was one of the reasons but not the
Rllss (ubruplly) What had Kemitor
lMumb, a Kansas senator, to do with
this Ari.oini route. , ,
Answer He could probably answer
Wwit question more correctly than 1
Various questions of a technical
nature were put the witness regard
ing tho different routes. su"h ai his
reasons for expediting a route to a
certain number of hours. Many of
his reasons ho failed to recall but look
Ingat tlio papers ho would give Mich
explanations of tho circumstances as
in his mind Justified tlio oidcrs.
Where tlo service had been discon
tinued and n moiiWiK extra pay allow
ed tho contractor, although a mall had
never been earned, tno wnnmn
denied any knowledge of such fact.
He saitl even If the circumstances
wore as slated by the counsel the con
tractor would have been Justified in
refusing to carry the mall on account
of a iiilvMiitemtM of the distance.

It required every man mentioned to

"Dill you over sec uny puiKtr In

"Yes, but there were so many and

cannot remember them.' ,
Ho added mat u "s "

ii..s wild French had iiindo the cm r
and that Jill endorsement had proba

Rllss, Inquired, why the
Snti In Fo nude had been expedited
under tho Walsh contract.
Wltiu'xs' recollection was tho service
had been expedited under McDonald
and cut down when the latter failed
wild restored under Walsh. As show
ing bis reason for making tho order
witness read from papers tho
recommendations of prominent per
sons looking to tho Increase of the ser
Rliss "You suspended the service
in May, 1881, didn't you?"
"1 was not in the department at
"Did yon not suspend the service in
"My impression l. 1 declared Walsh
to bo a falling contractor, but didn't
suspend the service. 1 frequently had
eoimu!rttlonis with Walsh, Muuotlnuw
at General Sheridan's house, Walsh's
lounging place, but nuvor by np-
iHuutmcut. Sheridan wan usu
ally there." Witness frequently went
ami made liimseu at nomc,
although Sheridan was alisent. Never
inui any money transaction witu
Walsh who was always expressing his
willingness to loan money but had
asked Walsh to loan hint some stock.
Witness said that a letter produced by
Rllss (the ChitUiiitoogu letter) was in
Ingersoll objected to the reception or
the hill becauso of Its Irrelvaney.
The court decided to admit the paper
as It tended to show the business
relations between JRrady and Walsh,
Tho letter was then reau. u was
it request for soiuu loan ofktoek, and
has been often published.
Witness snld Walsh did not lchd
him the stock. Ho explained tho
term "ginger" used In the letter. It
did not menu money, but Justwhut ho
asked fer Chattanooga stoou. v it-ne-s
was told to buy It because It was
going up, but it did not. So Walsh
bought the stock, but when witness
wished to borrow he said that ho had
sold 11. The newspapers referred t
were the ItepublhutH. Ho mod
tho plural form because ho expected
to make it as good as two newspapers,
He was at that time negotiating fm
the ownership of the ttlial. Ho
came Into the tVlth later on. The
other liuslne.-.s referred to wns thu
Canadian himhur buslines or Wuugh,
Brown JL- Company. Mr. Rllss
wanted to know howWnlsli mid wit
ness were to bo beuelltUsl by tlio pro
nosed loan. Ho said he expected to
run up the price of the Chattanooga
stock which would have gotten a
handsome profit and had a
cart load himself. Witness
swore no nioucv had been dopodted
to his credit at Hatch & Footc's by
Walsh. One or Prleo'n draft's was
produced and wltncsss was asked if he
had sent or delivered that draft to

lie asserted it was not necessary lor in
termediate holders to endorse u postal

would have shown hlinsell iniiuireiy
more stupid than lie had shown him

Tho two men, Walsh and llrndy,

to throw some light np" 'he situa
