over the unofficial returns and

Hay and continue to reduce Lis

plurality is decreased to 526, and
Governor Hay himself in a state

by himself shows Lister's plur

According to the unofficial re

turned. There was some misun

and before she could save herself
the animal leaped upon her and
tore a gash In her scalp which re

Another time in "The Girl

obliged to lie across a railroad
track, until a train, traveling at
great speed, was within 50 feet
of her. The only assurance she
had of safety was the promise

HIS SAY ON
Attorney Bates Testifies to Clear His Client Houston
From Suspicion—On Witness Stand Yesterday
Afternoon Questioned by Federal Prosecutor
Assuming an air of injured in
nocence, Attorney C. (). Hates,
local attorney for C. K. Houston,
one of the convicted men in the
government coal conspiracy case,
took the stand in federal Court
yesterday afternoon to vindicate
himself of suspicion cast on him
by the statement attributed to
luror Samuel Milleson of Kunmi-r
whom other jurors swore bad told
them that he was to get money
for swearing to a false affidavit
to try to get Judge Cushman to
give Houston a new trial or let
him off with a money line in
stead of Imprisonment.
Hates said Milleson was brought
to his office by \V. IJ. C. Spike, a
coal man. lie said Mtlleson told
him he felt a great injustice had
been done Houston by his con
viction, that he could not sleep,
that he wasted to do something
to ease his conscience on the mat
ter if he could.
Hates said he asked him how lie
came to vote for conviction, and
he said the thing that convinced
him finally was the supplemental
bid put in by Houston for the
Sesnon coal company in 1i)d8.
Kates informed him this bid was
put. In in I!mi7, and Milleson said
if he had known that ho never
would have voted for conviction.
When he finished, R. D. Town
send, government attorney, gra
ciously accepted his statement.
Then he began cross-questioning
"The reason you say Mi Meson
was racked with remorse at his
vote for conviction was that he
had mistaken the time In which
Houston put in the supplemental
Hates said it was.
"Yet you say that Milleson nev
er know of his mistaken idea of
the time of this bid until you
demonstrated It to him in your
office, then how did this cause
him to lose Bleep and be racked
with regrets when he. did not
know of it until you told him?"
The situation in the courtroom
grew Intense. Spectators leaned
forward in eager expectancy.
Hates could not toll.
"1 have lived here 2 8 years. I
have been in politics and have
been assailed often. 1 have had
many mean things said about me
personally, and have had my per
sonal habits assailed, but never
before have I had my Integrity
as a practicing attorney at the
bar brought in question," said
