TIW9lOt4AY, JULY It I0L
THE m.D RNVLIABLE I POWDER Absolutely Puir 7MWeR I NO UTflBITWI WORD AGREES WITH THE OTHER EXPERTS Fourth Witness For De fense in Nipper Case Gives Evidence. (Coatlased from Page One.) case, I heard mining men speak of it, but personally I knew nothing of it till July a of this year." "At whose suggeation did you go down into the Coluse-Parrot to see it?" Suggestion of No One. "At no one's auggestion, until I had a desire teoo and see it myself to de termine for myself if it was the great fault it was said to be." The witness said that he was accom panied by other persons, among them two of the witnesses in the present case. Dur ing the progress of the Nipper case it was that he made the visit, and he said he had had only a limited time to make his ex amination. "Had you satisfied yourself that there was a cutting off of the Blue vein in the Nipper claim before going into the Colusa Parrot ?" the lawyer asked. "Partly. I went into the Colusa-Parrot to corroborate my previous view," the witness replied. Asked why he did not go into the work ings of the Neversweat and the Anaconda claim and examine them, he replied that he had not had time, and had devoted himself to other territory of more import ance in the case in his opinion. Discusses the Levels. He discussed the 300 and 400 level workings of the claims named, and under questioning of Mr. Cotter, said they ran both west and northwest, and that pro jections to the east from the parts of them which had westerly and easterly di rections would intersect the Blue vein, but that projections given a mean course, which was the true course, taking them In their entirety, would parallel the vein. After that the Sos drift in the Oden was taken up, and he said it was lnae cessible on account of caving. In this connection the lawyer asked: "Is the atope east of raise St caved in?" "Yes, sir," the witness replied. "What is found in the drift northwest of the stope in the nature of a vein?" "The Blue vein is found there." "How wide is the vein at point soa In the drift?" Does Not Know. "I don't know. I am of the opfllon that the vein has a width of ao feet in that neighborhood, but at that exact point I could not say what it is." "Are the workings parallel to the vein?" "Not necessarily." The witness explained that workings do not always follow the exact strike of an ore deposit, especially when the latter is Irregular. A cluss-cut in the same vicinity as the drift mentioned came in for attention, and Mr. Cotter said: "What is the condition of the vein in this cross-cut ?" "My recollection is that the cross-cut was lagged closely and that the vein could not be seen," the witness replied. "Is it not a fact that the vein is lamin ated or shows a striated condition there?" said Mr. Cotter. "My recollection is that it cannot be seen," was the reply. Vein Can Be Seen. The witness said that in another place the vein can be seen, and the vein shows distinctly and contains vein matter and broken material. "Is not that a handed structure there?" the lawyer persisted. "I don't know. I should expect to find bands there," replied the witness. "Well, are there not bands there?" "You are becoming too microscopical. Your question involves microscopical ex amination," the witness answered. "Is it not a fact that bands can be seen there with the naked eye, without the use of a microscope and with the use of a candle light only?" said Mr. Cotter. "I have answered that I saw the vein crossing there diagonally with the naked eye. But I did not see any bands," said Mr. Akers. A discussion followed this in which the lawyer became discontented with the wit ness' method of replying, and he said he would like the latter to reply in detail. Cells Answers Exhaustive. "I think I have answered very exhaust Ively on all questions," Mr. Akers re turned. "Well, I'm glad you're satisfied-" be. gan the lawyer. "I am, perfectly," broke in the witness. "Because I am not," concluded Mr. Cot ter. The lawyer then wanted to know when the witness had Afirst become acquainted with the splits vein. The witness replied: "On the afternoon of July ad." "feow did you become acquainted with it?" "By looking at it," was the return. "Who showed it to you?" "1 don't recall who mr guide was." "Was it near the surface or down be. low?" "I can't say." "Will you say that this mark on the map correctly shows the vein?" "It shows it as projected." in the Same Place. "Is it in the same place here on the map on the surface as it is in the ground sa feet below?" "No; it is where it would be if projected on its dip." The next difficulty between Mr. Cotter and the witness was over whether the aplite drift in a certain part revealed the strike of the aplite vein, and the witness said it did not. Mr. Cotter wanted to know why, and Mr. Akers replied because the vein is in an "anticlinal fold" at that point. Mr. Cotter dropped the subject and went on to something else. There was another hitch presently. Mr. Cotter picked out a fragment of the drift close to where the Blue vein intersects the Nipper north side line. The drift, as represented on the map, nearly parallels the Blue vein, but local parts take local courses, and Mr. Cotter wanted to show that one such course, if carried further in projection, would make the drift intersect the Blue vein. The witness desired to explain the situation. Insiste on an Answer. But Mr. Cotter insisted on an answer as to whether the fragmentary course under consideration would or would not cross the vein, and he appealed to the court to force the witness to answer with a plain yes or no. The court ordered the witness to use fewer words, and the witness proceeded with his testimony. The lawyer then took up the branches of the south prong of the so-called Nipper apex drift at the southeast corner of the Nipper claim and asked about the dips and strikes exposed there. As to the Ground Dip. The cross-examination of Mr. Akers was opened yesterday afternoon by Mr. Cotter, for the plaintiffs, at a late hour. Mr. Akers had testified that the general dip of the Blue vein running through the Nipper and adjoining claims is 70o de grees to the south. lie also had described a vein as a fis sure or fracture in the earth filled with minerals from sources within itself, and with boundaries distinguishing it from the mass of the mountain. Under cross-examination Mr. Akers tes tified that it was his belief the Blue vein apex had been correctly represented upon the defendants' map fromn his investiga tion of the ground and the formations of it. Mr. Akers testified he was still investi gating the ground in dispute up to the morning before. What is known as the Blue vein raise was discussed. It is a working driven since the case opened, and the witness tes tified that it was Luustauited by the dc fendants in order to find out where the Nipper discovery shaft was located. CLANCY POSTPONES A TRIAL Case of Muldoon vs. Ferrell Will Have to Walt Awhile. Judge Clancy today postponed the trial of the case in which Martha Muldoon sued P. Ferrell and the latter's wife to foreclose a $s,Soo mortgage on property in South Butte, and which was to have been held today, to August at. The postponement was made on the ap plication of Attorney Le Blanc, who rep resents the defendants, and because the Nipper trial and the deliberations of the court while he is making up findings of fact in the case afterwards will take up three or four weeks. The continuance was opposed by Attor ney Cotter for he plaintiff, but the court refused to grant a request by Mr. Cotter to have the case postponed a less time. Mr. Le Blanc said the defendants would endeavor to take up the mortgage and note on their property before the month had expired. GRAND JURY WILL PROBE Alleged Official Crookedness in Denver to Be Investigated. BY ASSOCIATI:D £PR:as. Denver, July aa.-On petition of Dis trict Attorney Lindsay a grand jury was called today by Judge Johnson of the dis trict court, to investigate charges of cor ruption in city, county and state. The petition was based on the report of a committee of experts who have been ex amining the books of the county clerk and the old board of county commissioners. It is alleged that thousands of dollars of ptlblic funds were illegally expended and that the records have been tampered with. Removed From Office. Ysv A5aOCIATKD PRESS. Washington, July a.--Charles Hedges today was removed front the office of superintendent of free delivery of the postoffice department on the charge of falsifying his diary and loaning his traveling commission. CHARLES CLARK TAKES THE ENTIRE BLAME (Continued from Page Two.) drink each time that one was ordered while I was there. Up to this time he had remained in a sort of impassive condition, so dar as denying any tatemnents made by me about his having been bought by Heinze. "About this time, however, namely, about three hours after I had gone into the room, he suddenly brindled up and as usmed an injured air and, turning to me, he said: "'I have not received one cent of money from Heinze, either for my decision in the Minnie Healy case or in any other case.' Told He Is Lying. "I said to him at once: "'Ilarney, you know as well as I do, and as well as Roote does, that you are lying, and you might as well save yourself in this matter Iy making a clean breast.' I said to him further: "'How can you account for the fact that you have recently purchased a ho.use for $7;,oo or $8.00o, and yet when you went on the bench you were absol,utely broke and owed everybody in town?' "He said, in answer to this, that he had borrowed this money fromn Ileinze, and I told him that we (referring to Route and myself) knew that that was a d- lie.' " Here the witness described, as previously detailed in the case, the story of the alter cation between himself and Ilarney and of Harney's subsequent apology to him, of Ilarney becoming maudlin and of his cry ing, saying he was a ruinedl man and ask ilg what would become of him. Continu ing. the witness said: "I allowed him to to lk on in this way for a little while, and finally told him that there was a chance for him to save him self, and, under any circunmstances, he could protect himself and his family if he would but give me the information that I wanted concerning his dealings with Ileinze. To Retire Gracefully. "I further stated that upon the appear ance of the affidavits which were to be filed the next day, August 6, he could un der no circumstances remain on the bench, as there would be a demand made by all decent citizens for his removal, and that he might as well retire as gracefully as possible and protect himnself. He then said : "'If I give you the information that you want what will then become of me?' "1 answered: You have no doubt re ceived large sums of money front Heinze already, and if you will give me all the facts which, when investigatel and proven true, will give me the hold I want on lHeitnze I will agree to give you $a5o,ono. "This was the first mention that was made of any sum of money to be given him for his confession. For probably ten or Is minutes after this a repetition of this conversation ensued, and the same otIer I made to him again. "He asked me what assurance he would have of my being able to carry out my part of the contract, and I told him that I would give him all the assurances neces sary, and would pledge my word to him that I would fulfill my part of the con tract if he would give me the informa tion that I wanted so that it could be positively proven. "lie was still in a maudlin condition, weeping every now and then; and about this time either he or I suggested that we have another drink." Going to Room 402. The witness here told of going into room 402 and of the sending for sandwiches and eating them. He also told of having told Mr. Shores, apart front Harney, that he thought Harney would confess and also lie told Mr. Shores of the offer he had made. Mr. Shores said nothing. When the sandwiches were served IHarney joined the party in 40a'. Contintuing, the witness said: "When lHarney and I returned to room 403 the diseussion between us was re newed. larney was in a half- pleading mond all the time, and seemed to me at every moment to be on the point of ac cepting the proposition I had held out to him. After we had been there for a while, lie finally said: "'1 don't want to act hastily in this matter, and yet I don't know what to do.' "I said to him: 'We only have a short time before court opens in the morning and you must make up your decision at ontce.' Nothing Unlawful. "I furthermore impressed upon him again the fact that he was not doing any thing that was unlawful: that he was simply protecting himself and his future when he was receiving money for telling rite truth and giving information that he knew to be the truth; and after weeping a number of timnes again he said that he wanted a little timne to think the matter over, and then said that he would like to sendl for Mrs. Brackett. "I said: 'All right, I will see that she is sent for,' and I left the room again, go ing into room 40o. "l'Upon entering room 403 Mr. Shores asked me what progress 1 had lmade, and I told himn then that Itarney was still standing pat, but I thought was on the point of agreeing to what I had asked himn to do, and that hlie had asked to have Mrs. Irackett sent for. "I do not rememlber who went for Mrs. Brackett, btt she arrived there in albout twenty mninutes. If I remenmber correctly shle came into roomi 403, where Shores, Stivers and I were. I do inot remembler positively whether Roote was in this roomi at that timne or not, but I think he was probably there. Introduced to Mrs. Brackett. "Stivers introduced me to Mrs. Brack ott, whom I had never nmet before, and, in doing so, told me that he had talked with her about the sublject in question on the way to the hotel fromn her house and that he had told her that her services in this matter, that is, her Pervices so far as getting Iarney to confess the eutire truth about his connections with Ileine, would be remunerated to the extent of $Jo,ooo." After Stivers had imade tllis statement to Ime Mrs. Brackett took up the subject herself and corroborated whlat Stivers had just stated, and furthermore stated that she understood that she was to further strengthen Ilarney's confession by mnaking a statement herself as to lher connection with all money matters involved between Heinze and Harney., or any of Heinze's lieutenants and Harney, and that she was furthermore to tell Hlarney upon going into room 403 that she had already con fessed, so as to more easily bring about a statement of facts from hitm. "She did not at any time while talk ing to me, or to &tivers end me, etate that there was no truth in the oharge, a that I made of Harney having received money from Heinze. I t:I, her then that if she eould assist us a.cin would assist us in this matter, sthe couldi have $s,0oo in addition to what Stive', had promised her, tasa is $-$,0oo in all. "She then said: 'I will go in and see Hart ey and do what I can.' "S'he then opened the door gointg into rool .so.t anti I walked just inside the door with her. It may le that one of us was tnitshiing a sentence at this time. I did r.it. however, go farther than the door Into iroomi 4i't with her. " I, the best of my recollection' she re maintcl in rootm 403 about IS minutes. At the t \liration of this time she and Hiarney canth ,ut together, and I believe she made sonli ri,"ark about its being late and time to l ' holme. "I did not have any further conversa tion .ih her.

His Memory Hazy. The cross-examination of 1). J. Fitz gerald, auditor for the M. O. I'., conltinued after the Intter Mountain wenit to press yesterday. It grew to be a joke, so con veniently hazy was the memory of the witness. Here is a sample: "After you, in responbe to Mrs. Brack ett's telephone message from Salt Lake, had rented a furnished house for her, did you write and Ilformn her of the fact ?" "No, sir," said the witness, with decided enlphasis. "I never wrote to Mrs. Brackett in my life." less than two minutes later, recurring to the same matter, Mr. Nolan asked: "Why did you not write to her?" "I don't remember whether or not I wrote to her." This was the character of the whole testimony given by this witness. On its conclusion Mr. Breen asked that it be stricken from tile record, but the court denied the motion, J. M. Kennedy was called during the afternoon by the defense. Kennedy admitted making a flying trip to the Yellowstone park, where lie met Mrs. Brackett; that he knew Mrs. Brack ett was there and that he took with him certain affidavits which lie wanted her to sign. 'T'hese affidavits, witness said, were about the events of the night of August S in the T'hornton hlotel conference. He had no engagement and wired Mrs. Brack ett that he would be there.
