rj Gesas is one of Chicago's ac
cepted lawyers on the bankruptcy
"You know that Adams and his
wife were separated on Nov. 13,
Gesas objected, and when Judge
Landis asked Moses his reason for
asking this question, Moses said: "I
r am attempting to prove that this suit
'was brought about solely to injure
the defendant in the eyes of the com
munity." When Judge Landis overruled Ge
z sas' objection, McCormick replied:
McCormick denied that he had
,ever made Adams' home his home,
but admitted that he kept some of
his clothing and linen there, paid the
salary of his valet, who also acted
as 'butler fqr the household, chipped
in to pay salary of the gardener, who
helped take care of his polo ponies
with a groom and a chauffeur.
"In 1910 I came into possession of
" a farm in Wheaton. There the Ad
amses visited me. During that sum
mer we lived at the Onwentsia Golf
Club." Adams had previously testified to
paying a monthly liquor bill amount
ing to $60 or $70.
"How much of this, liquor did you
drink?" asked Moses of McCormick.
"About six or seven dollars'
worth," he replied.
"Concerning these notes which
Morrill Dunn has testified that you
told him over the phone were in
ashes, and that Adams need not
worry about them, did you tell him
"There were visitors in. my office
when Dunn called up and I was in
such a hurry to have him ring off
that I might have told him that."
"Adams has just testified that you
told him the same thing during a
telephone conversation and that he
asked you to send him a letter to
that effect. Do you remember this
" cannot recall it.'r
Early in the proceedings a letter
was introduced. It was written to
Adams by McCormick and stated: "I
could not get over to the bank to see
about those notes today, as I was
called out of town. However, I will
send the notes later."
When Edward S. Adams was
placed on the stand he told how Mc
Cormick had made his visits one con
tinuous chain from 1903 till a little
more than a year ago.
"With the three of us residing al
most continually in the house the ex
penses were large. Some years they
reached a total of more than $10,
000," said Adams. "McCormick
kept clothing and practically every
thing else he needed at my house.
His two autos were for his own use.
I was not offered the use of them
and I did not ask to use them. I
paid all the bills of the household.
One particularly I noticed was the
liquor bill. This usually amounted
to $60 or $70 a month. I am a very
moderate, user of liquor and my wife
also is of temperate habits."
