It was during tile examination of this witness that Judg,' McIcClernan took a hand in the examination. lie brought out the fact that none aof the g,,ods purchased were furniture. It will he rememberedl here that. ac colring to the testimony of the detectives, Mrs. Birackett told them that Ileinze was to furnish her house for her. 'I.iis fact proII,,ly suggested the questions put by the judge. As to Character. Character witnes.se consuimcd the time of the afternnon. At thle olnc ,i of the session Sa of these were ca:lcl and sworn. Theyl' are the foremost lawyers of the state, the largest men in their professinn in Mon. tan a. Their examination was condicted by Attorney II. 1 . Mclntire of Ilelena, of cnn-licl for the deflenste. The questions were few and simple. 'There wire two chief oites following the usual e;tablihing queries as to the knowl edge of the witness as to the repu tation questioned about prior to August 5, 19"1. They were: "\What is the reputation of the accused as a mant and a lawyer for hIonlor, integ rity and professional rectitule?" and "Wh\\'at is his standing as a lawyer?" Mr. Breen cross-examined briefly the first two or three. asking them if they were acquainted with the incidents of the night of August 5, 19ol, at the Thornton hotel, and if they were retained by any corporation, but with the testimony of Judge Knowles he abandoned this, save for a few cases, like that of Judge S. II. Mcintire of Helena. To all of his ques tions lie received negative replies. Judge Blake Is Heard. Judge Henry N. Blake of Helena, once territorial chief justice and later associate justice of the state supreme court, was the first of these witnesses. The witness told of the extensive prac tice of the defendant, Arthur J. Shores, tbefore and with him. To the questions as to the rep'tation of the defendant for honor and professional rectitude and as to his standing as a lawyer, the witness answered with emphasis "very gopd." Judge William G. Piggott, until re cently and for five years associate justice of the state supreme court, said that he had known the defendant for ta years, that as to his general reputation as a mlan and a lawyer for honor, integrity and professional integrity, there was "none better," and that his standing as a lawyer wag the "very best." Judge Robert J. Word of Helena, late associate justice of the supreme court, replied to thlý first query, "very excellent;" and tto the second, "very good." Iludge Hiram Knowles, the first and tied dieui l judge the state has ever had, and who now holds the sanme position, gave similar testimony. Judge J. II. Leslie of the Eighth judicial district of Great Falls, last year demo cratic candidate for associate justice of th supreme court, told of his long acquain. ance and practice with the defendant, an* then gave similar testimony, saying '1. Shores' reputation was irreproachable ai a man and second to none in the state as a lawvtr. Judlge John W. Tattan of Fort Bentod, a prosecuting attorney of .to years' atans4 log itn Montana and now judge of the Twelfth judicial district, comprising this couties of ('lhouteau and Valley countiep casme next. To the first query he rq. plied, "excellent," and to the second, "jretty near to the top." Judge J. N. 'lcements of Ifelena, Judge of the First judicial district, replied, I" ,.," to both queries. Surpassed by None. .1,. i., lhnry C. Smith of Helena, ilos judlg of the First judicial district, said ti, the lirst question, "unsurpassed by that of any attorney at the Montana bar," and to the second, "one of the leaders of the ibar." Juldge M. II. l'arker of Boulder, Judge of the F:ifth judicial district, replied to both intcrrogatries, "very good." ','I. W. F. Sanders of Helens, formerly Unitedl States senator from this state, was called, but was noit present. Judge Sidney II. Mclntire of Helena, late judge of the First judicial district of Montana, to the first query replied, "gooud," and to the second, "one of the leaders of the Montana bar." Carl Rasch of Ieletna, United States district attorney of Montana, also gave Mr. Shores the highest reputation. Recalled to the Stand. Attorney (;corge II. Stanton of Great Falls, until laet year state senator from Cascade county, replied to the first query, "cxceptionally good," aind to the second, "very high." lie was recalled after he left the stand, for cross-examination. All that came ut was that he was retained by the Bo iotf & Montana company and that he d£ee inade a trip to San Francisco in relation to the deposition of Charles W. Clark in this case. James W. Freeman, now mayor of Great Falls, a practicing attorney at the Cas cade county bar, replied "excellent" to the first question and "one of the leaders of the bar" as the second. Attoriney J. II. Ewing of Great Falls gave laudatory testimony regarding Mr. Shores. At this point Attorney McIntire said that more character witnesses were com ing froim the various parts of the state and that their testimony would be gigen later. I Mr. Fitzgerald Testifies. Then I). J. Fitzgerald, auditor of the MI. t(. I'. Co., was put on thie stand. He was examinedl by Attorney Nolan. lie told of kiiwing Mrs. Ada Ii. Brackett and freely con,fessed that she was in the employ of the M. 0. I'. from the spring of 1907 to the fall of the same year. He said her salary, as lie recollected, was about $i5o a Imonthl as a stenographer, out of which he thought shel paid her own office rent, as' she hadl hr .ofice with an attorney named 1)ygert. Asked regarding her trip to Salt Lake inl JuneI', stoi, he said he thouwht he want there in pursuance of her dluties as a ste ingrapher and that her pay went on. He sail she called him uip on the 'lphone from Salt l.ake about renting the house for her that he slsequentlty rented in West Quartz strect. Cross-Examination Resumed. The cross-examination of Mrs. Josephine M. Wallhlae' was resnumed at the opening of the mo)rning's session today. iThe first qciestiunsl were directed to tl past liic of the witness. She said aat ornce in Milwaukee when her husband et with adversity she hail worked for Reed & Co. of that city. This was in an attempt to show that the witness' previous testl ionyoy as to her past employment was in error, but Mrs. Wallace met the questions frankly and showed this Milwaukee em ployment was but temporary. 'theni c:amie sonic questions as to whether the witness had been employed by one W\eelon in De)ver. She explained that \\eedon had been her partner in the in surance bu siness under the name of the Fraternal Identitication company of Chi-, cagor, the busiiuss having been started in, I )ecembllner, I )os. She said she subsequently sold oun tor Wedlon for $i. The witness denied that the dissolution had been brought about because she had never turned any money into the business. To other questions she answered that during the time this business was being conductedl shie had never left the employ nictt of the 'hiel D)etective agency. Owes a Small Balance. Asked as to her knowledge of Shea & Foster of l)envcr the witness volunteered with little questioning that she owed this firm a balance on a grocery bill. When she got her divorce this bill was outstandin. and she had promised to pay it and had been doing so in installments. 'I hen Mr. Bfreen took up the cross-exam ination on the line of going over the va rious incidents of July and August, 19or, previously testified to. Apparently with the view of taxing the memory of the wit ness Mr. Breen would jump from the inci dents of July a7 to those of July 2a, and then to those of July ag, but she kept all these incidents segregated and answered, accurately. She re-told of the conversation on July 27 between Judge Harney and Mrs. IBrackett wherein they had said they would "stand by each other through thick and thin," of the party dining together that night, of the champagne they had taken at dinner and of the subsequent whiskies and' cocktails absorbed by Judge Harney and Mrs. Brackett and others in the detectives' rooms later. Tells of the Quarrel. She went over again the story of the quarrel between Mrs. Brackett and Harney on the night of July 25 when Mrs. Brack ett had abused the judge because he had said he was going to bring some niys terious "that fellow" into court and "of their reconciliation after the quarrel. The witness also detailed more fully the story of the Columbia Gardens trip on which IIarney, then somewhat intoxicated, had told Mrs. Brackett that he proposed to "throw it into the Amalgamated" and "give them h-." She repeated the incidents of the Sunday when Judge HIarney had spoken of having seen John 'MaoGinniss of the M. O. P. company. Incident after i'ldnt was gnoe over in this manner until it became wearisome to all in the courtroom, but the witness shemlicd to bear it remarkably well, though it involved constant repetition and inter mittent and unexpected hashing back to the same old incidents. As to Leaving Butte. Comiing down to the latter days of her stay in Butte, Mrs. Wallace on cross-ex. amination testified that she left Butte \ugus.t 5 or 6. "Why did you leave?" asked Mr. Breen. "ltecause I was through with my work her'," said Mrs. Wallace. She said further that she and Barlow hadI received their orders to leave the case i ,on Mr. Pardee, the local manager of the sht.ictive agency. In one of the several minor verbal pas .,.ges between the witness and Mr. Breen the, witness referred to some question a:kls.l )esterday and attributed it to Mr. "No, you are mistaken," said Mr. Breen, "it wa.s a better looking man who asked that question--Mr. Vail." "Yes, sir," said the witness quietly and with a meaning that was so clear that the ,p[ctators grinned broadly. III in Denver. Mrs. Wallace said that on her return to h,inver, after leaving Butte, she became ill a.II two or three days later she went to i lark Springs at the suggestion of Mr. S,it s,, manager of the Thiel service at SDelnver. ju.estioned as to her expense bill on the work she did here, Mrs. Wallace said she dlid not remember how much it was. She s:idl that the custom of the Thiel service was for operatives to submit their ex ,petnse bills on the sat and s5th of each month. She said she could get the expense bill by sending away for it, either to Seattle or IDenver--she was not sure at which ofice of the company the bill was on file. Then came the final questions, the ones that at length caused the display of emo tionl by Mrs. Wallace. IDid you, in 189J, in Omaha, witness a fight in your room between one Gabel Wagner and your husband?" asked Mr. Ilrtein. "I will tell you all about that," said the witness. "I hate to speak about my hus band. but I suppose I'll have to. lie was a morphine fiend and entirely irrespon sible. Finds Wagner There. "O)nce Gabel Wagner called at our roomsi and my husband came home and found him there. "Mr. Wallace had repeatedly invited himj to the house himself, had introduced Wa\\'.gner to me and had absolutely no cause whatever for objecting to Mr. Wag ncr's visit. lie found fault, however, with 'Mr. W\agner for being there, but there was no fight." Mr. Breen then put a question to the witness that brought the color to her face and caused her voice to tremble for the first time in the long ordeal to which she had been subjected. lie asked if it was not a fact that Wagner had come to the room at her Invitation; if she and Wag ner had not been in bed and if she had nut quietly telephoned to her husband; if he had not come to the rooms and en deavored to extort money from Wagner and if Wagner had not whipped him for his pains. Denies Imputation. "That is not true," said Mrs. Wallace, with emphasis. "The facts are exactly as I have tried to explain to you." "That's all," said Mr. Breen, signifying the close of the cross-examination. 'Then Mr. Vail, with his customary su avity, began the redirect examination, di recting questions as to the divorce Mrs. Wallace has told or securing from her husband. [The relief from the rapid-fire cross-ex amination of Mr. Breen and the character of his questions told upon the nerves of the witness, who heretofore had borne herseli so well. Suddenly she put her handkerchief to her eyes and she was seen to shake with ssbs. Mr. Vail asked the indulgence of the court for a few moments and Mrs. Wallace retired to the judge's chambers. She returned in five minutes flushed of face and with wet eyes, but quite self psestsueld. Several times after that her vosice shook, but she did not give way again. Reasons for Divoroe. On redirect examination Mrs. Wallace thld of her reasons for getting the divorce and went into the history of the persecu tiin she has undergone in Denver at the haInds of those who are interested in the prnsecution of the defendant in this action. "My divorce was secured three years ago last February," said Mrs. Wallace, "and I was the plaintiff. My husband, as I have said, was one of the worst mor phine fiends in Denver. For two years irior to the divorce he had refused to work. "My friends had secured him positions, but he would not take them. I was try ing to take care of myself and of my boy. pMy husband would come home and if the meals were not ready just on time I would get abused. It got so I could not stand it and I consulted my attorney, Robert Bonney, about getting a divorce. "A suit was instituted and a summons served on my husband, but he failed to respond. I went into court. "There was the jury present and there was some little talk and then a divorce was granted to me on the grounds of non-support. I did not want to charge cruelty. "My husband still lives in Denver. I have charge' of tihe boy. We had three children altogether, but only one is liv ing. He is at years old and lives with me. He is in poor health." "The name of Shea & Foster," said Mr. Vail, "has been mentioned in your cross examination. Will you tell us what you learned from them or others of being watched in Denver?" "I learned that my home was being watched and I also learned that I was being followed around the streets of Den ver. I learned that a man was going about looking up my financial condition. "I heard of the thing and then tele phoned to Mr. Shea of this firm of grocers. I asked him if anybody had been to see him. "He said a man had been there asking about me and wanting to know If I owed the firm any money. -Mr. Shea told him I did owe an account there, but that I was paying it off as fast as possible, and that 1 had had a great deal of sickness to contend with, both my son and myself )being ill, and that he felt' sure I would pay everything I owed. "Besides this, a gentleman called at my houu ca wbm I ews out and stated that an estate or some money had been left to me. On returning to the house one evening I had just got into the hall when there was a knock at the door. The Same Man. "I opened it and there stood this same, smooth-faced man. He asked for Mrs. Wallace and I told him I was Mrs. Wal lace. lie said: 'We have been looking the city over for you' and then he told me that some money or an estate had been left to me. I asked him at once what firm of attorneys he represented. He re plied that he represented Walcott & Vail, and I replied that I would call at their office the following morning. I did so, and I saw you, Mr. Vail "You made inquiries through the omce and could find out nothing about it. Then you told me to try to pick up this man if I could. Two days later he got in the same car with me. "I got off at the corner of Sixteenth and Stout streets and he went across the street with the car and then go off also. I walked along and he followed me. "Then I met Mr. Edwards, adeputy Unit ed States marshal, and I asked him to tele phone to you (indicating Mr. Vail) that I had this man and to ask you to join me at Thorbeck's gallery. I led the man there and you joined me in the gallery. "I pointed out the man, who was stand ing across the street, to you and you sug gested going over and asking what he meant. I asked you, however, not to do so, but to let me telephone to my manager, Mr. Geise. Uses the Telephone. "I did telephone to Mr. Geise and he sent a man to shadow the man who was following me. Mr. Geise also instructed me if I got a good chance to lose the man and come into the office and report. "I led the man around town for some time and then lost him at Rollins' under taking establishment. He remained out side there for an hour and a half waiting for me to come out, but I didn't come out." "That is.," interjected Mr. Vail, "he didn't see you come out?" "Yes, he did not see me come out, but I didn't stay there and Robbins didn't bury me." Continuing, Mrs. Wallace said: "One morning two men who were fol lowing me got on the car on which I was riding. Both wore sombreros. I managed to lose them by getting off the car on the loop at Sixteenth and Stout streets. "Another man who was employed around the courthouse, doing work for lawyers and others, also had been getting informa tion, doing so in response to a letter he received from Butte. "He went to my former husband's pres ent wife and told her I had been arrested in Montana for 'perjury and that I had skipped my bonds. My husband had the grace to call up my manager, Mr. Geise, and tell him about it. "The man had made an appointment to come 'back to the house to see my hus band, but when he called my husband ar ranged not to be there." "Was this man you speak of Harry W. Grubb of .3a Glenarm hotel, Denver?" asked Mr. Vail. "It was," replied the witness. Further questions elicited the fact that all incidents transpired prior to May 4 last. A Traveling Salesman. On re-cross examination the witness said that her former husband is now a traveling salesman in the employ of Uri & Co. of Louisvillc, Ky., and makes his home in Denver. Asked if he ever was in the penitentiary she said he was not, and then qualified the statement by saying if he was it was long before she ever knew him. Asked if she was surprised at being followed she said she was not. "But," she added, "I thought it was un kind to fry to hurt my credit in Denver." It came out also that she had consulted Mr. Vail to have the efforts to hurt her credit and the false statements that were being made about her stopped. She had asked Mr. Vail to write a letter to Grubb about the matter. "And I wrote the letter," said Mr. Vail, smiling, but Mr. Breen apparently did not want to push this matter any farther. The cross-examination also brought out the fact that on leaving Butte, August 6, toot, the witness had seen Mrs. Brackett and Mrs. Brackett's daughter at the depot, Mrs. Brackett being about to take the same time train. Mrs. Wallace, however, denied any remembrance of having, with Barlow, gone into another coaoh to avoid Mrs. Brackett. As to the Letter. More re-direct examination followed re garding the letter written by Mr. Vail to Mr. Grubb. The witness said that she was anxious to shut off untruthful statements for many reasons. "Among others," said she, "I thought that the present Mrs. Wallace might be glad to get hold of the matter. "Most women are envious of others. And then, too, I feared that the matter would advertise my connection with the Thiel agency and hurt me in my business." "Call Mr. Breen," said Mr. Vail, as the witness left the stand. With some sur prise the friend of the court, the county attorney and the prosecutor in this case, took the stand. "Did the county attorney of this county," was asked Mr. Breen, "employ detectives to watch Mrs. Wallace In Den ver?" "The county attorney" was the reply, "requested Information in Denver regard ing Mrs. Wallace." "Does the county attorney know how the expense of getting that information is to be paid?" "The county attorney does not. The county attorney does not even know how his expenses in this case are to be paid." "That's all," said Mr. Vail. "Cross-examine," said the court, and Mr. Breen replied to the joke by saying, "There is no cross-examination of this last witness," as he took his seat. Judge Harney Is Called. Then Judge Harney was called to the stand. He was asked but one question. It was: "Have you employed detectives to shadow Mrs. Wallace in Denver?" "I have not. I haven't any money," was the reply. And so the two men who, according to the record, are the only ones Interested in the prosecution of the case, disclaimed any connection with this work. Then came William Love, clerk at the Thornton hotel, with two huge books. One was the hotel register. Mrs. Wallace in her examination had testified that she thought that the assumed names of her self and her fellow-deteetive, ' Bgylow, had been registered twice, The calling of Love was simply to, clear up this matter. ( Love explained that on thq arri_ of the two, July IS, pgos, harted ae. ned them to rooms on the fifth floor and that subsequently the woman had asked for wsma lowar dewp and thq had been asm signed to so! and soa, which they ce eupied during the stay. He showed that an erasure and not a new registration had been made on the register when the change took place. The witness told also how on July to Mrs. Brackett had obtained a room at the hotel without registering, thus corrobor ating the testimony of Mrs. Wallace. Trensfer Register Produced. Mr. Love then produced his transfer register. It showed that Mrs. Brackett oc cupied 0o4 on the night of July to and paid $3 for it; that on the afternoon of July so she took Jar, had possesion of it to the afternoon of July a3 and paid $7.So; that on the afternoon of July 54 she took 314. remained until July as and had a bill of $4.1o of which $3 was for room and $r.2o for cafe; that on the afternoon of July 84 she took 324 and left on the afternoon of July s6, paying $j; that later on July a6 she took j36 and remained until the morn ing of July y7 and paid a bill of $a. On cross-examination by Mr. Breen he testified that Waters and Wallace, as Barlow and Mrs. Wallace were known, were assigned to roms sot and sos, that they paid their hill on July 3S, amounting to $94.75 of which $78 was for rooms, $t for baggage, so cents for tailor, $a.ss for cleaning, $7.so for laundry and $5.So for cafe. They had the same rooms also from August t to August 6 and paid therefor $36 on departing. The witness explained the system of or dering drinks, saying no permanent record of drinks sent to rooms was kept unless the drinks were charged. Thus he could not tell how much of a bill for drinks was paid by the two de tectives during their stay, as they apparent ly paid cash for such refreshments. Aooount at Hennesey'd. C. J. Kelly, secretary and treasurer of the Hennessy Mercantile company came next to the stand to testify to Mrs. Brackett's account with this firm. He corroborated the testimony of Mrs Wallace regarding the purchase of two corset covers on July as. He told also of her purchasing a traveling coat for $ros on July 8 of the same year-poot. He said her account opened October to, tgoo, and closed September so, Ipor, in which time she had purchased goods to the amount of $tr,.l.44, of which $S19.74 still remains unpaid. Then the court asked some questions. Judge McClernan wanted to know what the goods were that had been purchased. The witness said they were wearing ap parel, groceries, meats and different articles. "Was there any furniture purchased?" asked the court. "No," said the witness, "but she bor rowed a typewriter desk." Here came the noon adjournment. To Break Down Witness. The cross-examination of Mrs. Wallace by .Attorney Breen continued yesterday afternoon after the Inter Mountain went to press. It was a vigorous effort by the friend of the court to break down the witness, to confuse her and to shake credibility of her statements, but it was without avail, save in the very minor particular that the witness thought that Mrs. Brackett, in Salt Lake. had told her that she (Mrs. Brackett) had been employed in the winter previous at Helena as a court stenogra pher, when in fact Mrs. Brackett was em ployed there as a legislative stenographer. Save for this the testimony of the wit ness was clear, convincing and without a contradiction or evasion. "She is a remarkably level-headed woman and a good witness," was the gen eral comment in the courtroom on both sides. Tries to "Rattle" Her. Mr. Breen in his remarks sought to an noy and "rattle" her, after the time honored custom of cross-examiners. He asked if she was not in the habit of frequenting saloons, if she had not that reputation In Denver, her home; if she had not been divorced on that ground, and then he sought by many questions to indicate that there was more than a busi ness relation between herself and some of the men whose names have been used in her testimony. Mrs. Wallace under this fire never lost her head. Her replies to these questions were all in the negative and, whatever she felt, she gave them without apparent emo tion, thus defeating the object of the cross examiner. The witness corroborated the testi mony of Barlow as to the incidents of the street fair and Alamo saloon carouse In in fact the whole cross-examination tend ed to strengthen rather than weaken her direct testimony.
