BRIBE CASES FINISHED; / JUDGMENT RESERVED The taking of testimony in the ermes against Robert Brown and Charles E. Baumheckel, charged with giving brides to Fred Frltzen and Churles Holcomb, heads o: depart ments of the Studebaker corporation, in Connection with sales made by the defendants, was Mulshed before Jus tice Stein, Friday afternoon, aud Judgment reserved until next Tues day. Holcomb testified that h 6 received between S4OO and SSOO from Haum heckel. who represented the Forbes Varnish Cos., of Cleveland, and S6OO or S7OO from Brown, who was the representative of the Acme White Head & Color works, Detroit. Hol comb said that he did not take the money on the understanding that it was in consideration of business that he might give the donors. Assistant Prosecutor Voorheis pro duced a stenographic statement, pur porting to be a report of what Hol comb told Prosecutor Shepherd, some days ago. The statement credited Holcomb with saying that the money he received from Brown and Baum herkel was in the nature of a bonus for patronage. On the stand, he suid that the statement was u mistake. Attorney Allan H. Frazer, for the defense, suggested that the money was merely a mark of good fellow ship and holcorab said that it was. A. E. Smith, an employe of the Studebaker corporations, and Attor ney Frazer clashed during the exam ination of the former. Smith had previously testified that Brown had given him a punch bowl at Christmas time. In answer to Frazer’s ques tions. Smith admitted that he had been a member of the Durable Top Specialty Cos.; that the products of the company hart been used In TTuT Studebaker plants on his recom mendation. aud that, when the com pany dissolved, he got $26,250 as his interest in the concern. Smith got much agitated by Fraz-i er's questions, and he fairly blazed with indignation when the attorney, a little later, asked him about a piano he got through the Mutty Cos., of Boston. Mr. Frazer intimated that Smith had saved S2OO or S.IOO by get ! ting the piano through the Mutty I Cos., Smith admitted that the Mutty j Cos. got it more cheaply than he could, J but said he didn’t know how much he saved on the deal.
