EVIDENCE IN THE BIO WILL CASE. MR. CROATS WORKS HARD AND.PATIBKTLT-WTTI TESYIMONY OP IMPORTANCE. Tho Stawnrt will mm bad to wait for .ta hal yesteredy morning on the Tilden will ooae, b caine some of tho big lo*w*ro? In th* former bat also the good fortune to bo retained in tho latte Tho question of the books came up first. M Cheeto Mid that be was willing to go on wit the examination of Mr. Hilton if Mr. Davies wt prepared to produoo tbe books of the old firm < Davies, McNamee, Work A Hilton. Mr. Choat desired to get nt these books to ascertain wheth** tho deeds executed by Mn. Stewart in favor < Judge Hilton, conveying valuable property an important business interests to him, were charge io tho account of Judge Hilton or Mrs. Stowar Jurien 1'. Davies took the ground thru he ooul not, under the statutes, bo required to produc thc books of tho old firm. Mr. Choate?Mr. Daviaa ignores the position la whieh. ti matter elanda Surrogate Rae***.?That u precis-it what I wa* ?bot to obiter?*. Mo order ha* bean mad* directing these book to be put tn evidence. Thee* book* ere not rout Individual'.}-; they belong to your old firm. Tbe wt timi under examination wa* * member ot that Brm aad a* *uo la *? much .tn titi ed. under thc law, to the phy*i-?i cuatnd of tte books a* reureelf. Th* proposition is simply tht the wltneee should be allowed lo look Into the books whll ea tbe attnl EDWARD B. HILTON AGAIN ON THF. STAND. Edward B. Hilton then took tho witness-.hui; Mr. Davies handed bim tbe books and stood nea bim where he could heep watch and guard ovc them. Mr. Choate asked Mr. Hilton to refer t the date of April ll, 1878, and ascertain t whose account the deed then executed by Mr* Stewart in favor of Judge Hilton wai charged Mr. Hilton replied that lie could not find an; entry referring to that deed. -Mr. Choate pu other questions referring to entries in the book* tbe other side objected, the objection was inf* tn-.ned. and Mr. Choate's linc of inquiry wa blocked. But he wns not, willing to beat a re? treat without a fight. " The charge on our part,' he laid] "is that the deed of April 14, 187*1 procured by Judge Hilton from Mrs. Stewart wn fraudulent. If Judge Hilton procured the nie of his son's firm for the drawing of that deafy and paid an extraordinary compensation, sav, fo the sake of argument, fl 0.000, $25,000 o $100,000, it would have, in my judgment, quit an important bearing on the question of fraud ii procuring iL" _____________ He then began what Mr. Robbins character ired as a " blind groping about to get at some thing." But whichever way he turned he strucl sn objection. Finally it was ruled that the wit ness should not testify to tho entries in tb books, but. only os to the extent to whieh tb entries might refresh his memory concerning tb mutters referred to. Thc witness haaorded th opinion that thc entries would not refresh hi memory at all A FEW ENTRIES FOUND AT LAST. After a while, however, by the exercise of muc patience and ingenuity. Mr. Choate did get a some entries in the books, but they did not sho\ nny extraordinary payments. One entry, datc< April 14, 1870. allowed a charge of $18 54 1* Jndge Hilton for recording the transfer of prop erty in Dutchess and Oreene Counties. Otho .muller entries were unearthed; some coneernec toro for drawing up satisfaction pieces, searchtn* Ville*, cte. Ahout most of these matters thc witness declared thut he was entirely ignorant He regarded the service merely as a personal out rendered by him to his luther. The books did not disclose any charges fm drawing up the power of attorney from Mra Stewart, to .Tudxe Hilton, the deed of essignmeril and ihe certificate of the continuance of the finn When Mr. Choate lind finished examining Mr ll.lton about the books. Mr. Conkling moved thal the testimonv ne all stricken out, on the grounr tl,nt it was incompetent, inadmissible "and imma? terial. Surrogate Ransom-I ?m unable to see no* that this evidence ls maurlsl or relevant, but what may be lu ef? fect at some other eUge of the case I do not Enow, aad 1 therefore deny the motion. Mr. Root then subjected Mr. Hilton to a ploas nnt little redirect examination, and soon elicited tbe information that Judge Davies nt ore time used to visit Mrs. Stewnrt about once a week and play whist with her. Q.-Do jou know what kind of ? game Mns. Stewart plavel* A.-Well, I think shu played a good, fair game. Surrogate Ransom?You had tetter show that he le an expert. Mr. Root-Well, be ls a member ot the bar; that Quail* ten him to be s Judge of whist. It came out ultimately that Mr. Hilton had onlv once seen Mrs. Stewart playing whist with Judge Davies, and had no personal knowledge of what sort of gnmo Mrs. Stewart played. Tho last thing put in evidence was a chart showing Mrs. Stewart's relatives and what they received under thc wills of Mr. aud Mrs. Stewart. The case will go on to-day at 10:30 a. m. - ? ? ? ...
