BUT JUDGE OBJECTS
Trial of Man Wanted as Wit
ness in Trial of Lee O'Neil
Chicago, Aug. 24. State's Attor
ney Wayman called the case of Rep
resentative Wilson, charged with
having been a distributor of the al
leged "jackpot" at St. Louis in Judge
Honore's court today. If it was a
ruse to get Wilson into court that
he could be brought into the Lee
O'Neil Browne case as a witness, it
is asserted By the defense, it failed.
Judge Honore postponed the Wilson
case until after the disposal of the
Browne case, and refused to declare
Wilson's bond forfeited to the state.
Korrrat Clanhra With Court.
The cross-examination of Repre
sentative White, who alleged Browne
bribed him to vote for Lorimer for
senator, was resumed today. Attor
ney Forrest of the defense, clashed
with the court in trying to get a
"yes" or "no" answer from the wit
ness to the question as to whether he
expected to be indicted on his con
fession that he had accepted a bribe.
Insist on "Vm" or Xe.
"I don't know." was White's re
peated answer. Forrest as often in
sisted on a direct affirmation or de
nial of the question, in spite of the
fact the court had ruled against him.
"I now my rights in this court,"
heatedly declared Forrest.
Judge Kersten leaned over and
pointed his finger at the lawyer.
"The court knows how to enforce the
rules of -this -court if the, .attorney
does not abide by them,"' he said.
Forrest then took up a new line of

Tokio, Aug. 24. The text of the con

Washington, D. C, Aug. 24.
Catcher "Billy" Sullivan of the Chi
cago Americans, today duplicated the
feat of Catcher Charles Street of the
Washington American league team
last year, in catching a baseball
thrown from a window at the top of
Washington monument, a perpendic
ular drop of 54 2 feet.
The ball was tossed from the top of
the monument by Pitcher Ed. Walsh,
of the Chicago team. It was only after
23 attempts Sullivan finally caught the
ball, although he succeeded several
times In so guaging the sphere as to
get it in his mit. The speed of the
falling ball was so terrific, however,
he was unable to hold it. I. Is esti
mated the ball was traveling at the
rate of 161 feet per second when
caught. Several members of the Chi
cago team, including Collins and "Doc
White, Trainer Quirk of the Washing
ton team and a few government offi
cials witnessed the feat. WThile the
feat has been attempted many times In
past years only Street heretofore 'was
able to accomplish it. His feat was
performed during thesummer of 1908
upon the 13th attempt.
Sullivan subsequently caught two
more balls thrown from the monu
ment window. After observing Sulli
van's first, attempts and ultimate suc
cess, "Doc" White suggested that the
balls be thrown farther afield. He as
cended the monument and standing
well back within the window, hurled
ball after ball as far out- as he could.
Sullivan caught the first one and to
show it was no accident, also caught
the fifth. Of the ten balls thrown by
White the catcher could get under only
one other, but he was unable to hold

It was easy to arrange the terms of
