Objections were raised both l>y
the state's attorneys and ny At

missability of certain testimony.
The first point was over a ques
tion pmt t o Detective Griffiths of
Seattle regarding what Miller
said when he was confronted with
burglars' paraphernalia that had
been taken from his room.
Attorney Glasgow raised an oD-
Jectlon to Page's testimony.
"Those things were told
by Miller as mutters of pro
fessional confidence, ami If
they arc allowed as testi
mony in thin court," declared
Glasgow hotly, "every rule
that guards the profession
has been battered down."
Detective Griffith, resuming
the stand this morning, related
the story of the search of Miller's
room In Seattle, when a jar of
liquid nitro-glycerln and dyna
mite shavings were discovered
through the boy Taylor.
"Evidence'} Was Destroyed.
"Then you destroyed this most
valuable bit of evidence?" in
quired Attorney Glasgow. Grif
fith answered affirmatively.
Other article's which Griffith
said were found in Miller's room
were a revolver and cartridges.
That Taylor was perfectly will

ler's apartment was a point
strongly brought out by the de
fense. It was shown that Taylor
pointed out the articles upon

to prove that Miller was a burglar

was in - progress. •
