He Is Accumulating Evidence to Use Later in Pleading Lack of Jurisdiction. In the course of the trial last week of the former employes of the American Sugar Refining Company on charges of Conspiracy to defraud the government out of customs duties. Clarence l^exow. of counsel for the defendants, ask.d this question, in substance, as material wit v.isses Wire about to step down: "Th-se docks .re in Brooklyn, are they not?" He would then call attention to the fact that the H.i\>:n. . .-r & Kid. plant, ■There the short weighing frauds were ttmmitted. was In the Eastern Federal Judicial District of this state. The trial, which will l>e continued this week, is be inK held in the Southern . District. Mr. Lexow'B question meant, it was paid yesterday, that the counsel for the de fence would make a d t-rmin.d fight to have the case thrown out of court be cause of lack of Jurisdiction. It was pointed out by ■ lawyer fa miliar with every phase of the case that the counsel for the defence was asking about the location of the docks so that hi would have an accumulation of evi dence ;ipon which to base his motion, and that this motion would be made as • M-n as the prosecution had finished its case. Should Judge James L. Martin, who is the trial Judge, rule against Mr. Lexow, a substantial foundation for an appeal would l>e laid, it was said. The lawyer Slid: "The • .: rittM i ir.en tried wa« committed in Most nf tl.em ! . rtrer all their lives The «re essentially residents ut that part of the city, have been employed there for many years and wer« at work there when the short weighing frauds were be ing committed. The scales that were tamper »d with are on »he docks at Will lamabors. The big refinery tiint re ceived the sugar that as weighed on those scales is in WilHamsburg. CRIME AGAINST CUSTOM HOUSE. "It will he said that the records were sent to the sugar company's offices here and to the Custom House; also that the alleged crime was committed against the Custom Huuse here. But so far as the latter i.< concerned, the. real sufferer fr< m the frauds was the government at Washington, and It is there that all record* go. Th«-re was as much reason for bringing the case to trial in Wash ington as in this district. " • Th. defence can refer to numerous precedent!*," the lawyer continued. "80 far as recent eases are concerned, many persons accused of smuggling have been arrested In New Jersey, in this customs district, and have been indicted in that federal district at Trenton. The Chese brough case is one in point. The alleged rim- van committed -;.t!n.-t the gov ernment, and the Custom House here was deprived of duties. Rut the Indict ments were found in the New Jers-y federal district, and there you are." it eras lean yesterday th:<- th** prosecution had seen the trend of Mr. Lexow*S question and that there was l»ot a iittle concern about it. From a lawyer close to the government little fear of Uw result was expressed, how ever. It wan said that the time to make the fight effectively against the trial be ing hold in this district was « hen the question of the removal of the accused nun came vi' There was no fight at that time. FART OF DEFENCES TACTICS. The seeming willingness to have the trial take place in this district, however, was a part of the ..-tics of the defence, *• cording to ■ lawyer familiar with their plans. A fight at the time th. men w«re indicted, if won, would have meant a trial in the Eastern District, when as a figl.t after the prosecution has its case nil in will result, if successful, in a pro tracted delay at the least, and thus an essential part «>f the programme of the defence may be carried out. A» far as a foundation for a •■-.■■ trial is concerned, very few questions have l,een asked t<V tbm prosecution that have rot l>rf'n objected to by counsel for the defence There have been blanket ob jections that have covered a whole line of questions. Judge Martin has seldom allowed the objections. one «>f the striking Incidents of trie trial last week waa the change of attl tude <>r the defence regarding Hi" bring ins in of the Wail Street Md -•! the bugar company** management.

Though the court has become hard ened to scenes of pathos, it was moved at the sight of the little mm searching his pockets for the money. With the deference due to air-, it waited patiently.
