CHICAGO. February 2.?Long legal argu
ments marked tiie opening of the packers'
case toda; It was contended by District
Attorney Morrl&on that Jesse 1*. Lyman,
former president of th> National Packing
Company, was not a proper witness, be
cause Lyman was not a party defendant,
nor is tiie company with which Lyman was
formerly connected one of the companies
against which an Indictment was returned.
It was claimed by the attorneys for the
packers that tiie National Packing Com
pany was included in the indictment among
several companies which were mentioned
as "several others." The arguments over
the admissibility of the evidence of Mr.
Lyman consumed nearly two hours.
The attorneys for the packers declared
that they wished to have Mr. I.yman testify
regarding his conversations with Commis
sioner Garfield at the time the commis
sioner arrived in tills city to commence hl3
investigations into the packing industry.
After the arguments had been in progress
for over two hours the court commenced to
put questions. He addressed himself lirst
to the district attorney, saying:
"If it is true that the defendants in this
case sat on the board of directors of the
National Packing Company, of which Ly
man was the president, he was their agent,
was he not?"
"Not at all," replied District Attorney
Morrison. "He spoke only for himself."
"in answer to Mr. Miller, I will say that
this Garfield report came to me like any
other public document which had been
published for weeks, and 1 used it as
"If it has not been settled by the courts
that corporations can have immunity, some
of the evidence which has gone in is in
error," said Judge Humphrey.
"It has not been settled," replied the dis
trict attorney; "but If the persons get it
In this rase. I suppose the corporations
might as well hav<' it. I have not yet,
however, heard a reason based on any rule
of evidence why this testimony of Lyman
is competent."
The court here remarked, with evident re
"I really hoped that you gentlerhen would
have a clear argument to put before me
this morning."
Garfield Report Used by Jury.
"We can show," said Attorney Miller,
who is acting for the packers, "that this
Garfield report was used before the grand
Jury, before which Mr. I.yman was a wit
"Can you prove that?" asked Judge Hum
' I cm prove it by this very witness," r#
plled Mr Miller. "1 will show that the very
matters given to Mr. Car field, relating to
the National Packing Company, were
brought out before the grand Jury through
Mr. I.yman. arid that the Garfield report
was us-d before The ijrand jury by District
Attorney Morrison In cross-examining Mr.
District Attorney Morrison declared that
the arguments had raised the question of
whether a corporation can have immunity.
He declared that the only way it could ob
tain immunity was for one of Its ollicers
to produce books and papers of the com
pany under oath.
"Well." said Judge Humphrey, "if Gar
field talked to this witness about these de
fendants. and bow he was to get the books
and papers, his testimony is competent."
"I do not see by what process of reason
ing the court arrives at that conclusion,"
replied District Attorney Morrison. "If it

company Garfield gave immunity to all. we
