Aururn, S. Y., Dec. L— When the conn
reconvened at 11 o'clock yesterday morn
ing. Stone was placed ou the stand. The
cross-examination brought out nothing
new except that he bad shown Haines'
answer to Stone's letter of Jane 3D to Me-
Quire, a clerk in hU office, and LyUle,
deputy collector.
McGuire was caTed, but refused to testi
fy to more than seeing a letter some time
In the summer, whicfc he did uot read and
which Stone said was from Haines. There
was no cross-ex amiuat ion.
The government failed to call Lyttlc,
who evidently "fell down" on the story.
The remainder of the government's case
was devoted to proviug Gardner's move
ments in Chicago leadiug to his arrest, and
made a complete chain of evidence con
necting him with the opium. All during
the trial Haines' counsel waived all techni
cal points.
Judge Brundage opened the case for the
defense in a masterly manner, going over
all the points in detaiL Hit eloquent de
fense of Haines and his scathing remarks
regarding the conspiracy against him,
elicited round# of applause iu the court
room. which could only be checked by the
bailiffs after great difficulty. He stated
that he could show to the jury by some
of the mo*t prominet citizens of Washing
tou Territory aud Chicago, the cnaracter
and standing of his client, his social posi
tiou, prominence in hi« profes«ion and his
worth a« a tnan.and that he would show the
utter fallacy of the charge agaiu*t him and
the motUes which led to them.
Turning to the Lost of petty special
agents aud detectives who were huddled
around the district attorney, with a superb
gesture of disdain he exclaimed: "You
arc houudiug and persecuting a man. the
latehet of whose shoes you are unworthy
to unloose."
The defense first called Gov. Squire, Jas.
McNaught, D H. Oilman, W. W. Newlin,
J. H. McOraw and I»r. L. Q. R. Dawson,
who all testified to the high standing aud
good character of the defendant Haines.
Waltham Jamieson, a prominent hanker
of Chicago, and Captain Buckley, for 30
years chief of police of Chicago, who had
known Haines intimately during h.s rcsi
deuce in that city, testified to his good
character. The probate court case referred
to by the Seattle papers regardiue his ap
propr.atiou of trust funds was completely
exp'aiucd and exp.ode<l.
Other wituess> s were called, but the court
said n<> Mirtber testimony as to character
was needed.
Haines *hen took the stand and related
minutely all the circumstances surround
ing the employment of hi* firm as Qtrd
ner's attorneys in the Ogden-burg cast,
and what he bad done in that raw. He
denied alt knowledge of a conspiracy, or
of the letter in evidence, which be *aid he
first i>rw In the coqrt room. His testimony
wan frank and Impress* d tbe heart rs with
Ita candor and truthfulness. The cross
examination rather strengthened hi» teati
Maurice McMicken was then railed and
testified to the employment of his firm in
the Gardner rase. A retainer and fees were
charged, pasm* nt made and services ren
dered. He aisostated that (iardmr brought
in a letter while Haines was oat of the
office (which was offer* d in evidence aud
read; upon which he Sold Gardner to get
the letters on Haines' desk. Hesupj*>s»d
they were the letters in evidence written
by Btoue.
The evident e lor the defense closed by
railing six of the most promiuent citixen*
of Ogdeasburg.who had known Stona for 15
year?. Bach testified that be would not be
lieve Mone on oath, that his moral char
acter was exceedingly bad.
The rule* of the court would n>t allow
the calling of more impeaching witnesses.
No defense was offered by Garduer. His
counsel aeemed to rely on the technical
points rained in the trial.
Judge Brundage iu an eloquent ar?e
ment summed uptho ease fur the defend
ant, Haines. The case had excited greai
iuterest, aud the court room was crowded.
The sympathy of the spectator* seemed
with the defendant.
Lock wood. Cleveland's mascot, summed
up the case for the government in an ab;e
manner, and made all that was p<«#s;Meof
the government's ease.
The charge of of Judge Coze occupied
nearly an hour, sud wvut fully over all
the evidence off*red in the cas The
charge was very full and impressive, and
thoroughly analyzed tbe facts lu the? caae.

ford the people of the state the greatest
satisfaction to we chosen. The i«on
Uoa. however, was Dot asked for and uot
offered. Tbe congressmen are unwillinf
t»> say who their choice is. but the conver

that Gov. Ku*k is the m«n they woald tike
to nee recognised. It also comes from a

Government I'nion Pacific
Directors' Report.
The Comptroller of the Curreaey
KeeommeatU Itest ruction of the
Remaining Greenbacks.
Viiit!9stos. Dec. I.—The joreniTatßt
director* of the ("nion Pacific raiirwad. in
their annual report to the secretary of the
interior, under date of Not. 19, isss say
they hare assumed as a premise now be
yoad the aeope of discussion, the neces
sity of ar. adjastment between the govern
ment and the railroad company far the
payment of funds heretofore advanced at
a subsidy for building the road. These
moneys wii! be due, says the report, oy the
term* of the agreement between the par
ties. in a faw year*. It is manifest tfe
road Is not now. am. will not then be, in a
condition to satiefv its obligation. It is
equa.iy manifest the; should such an art
ju-*ment not be effects, the government
will be compelled to take possess'on of ite
road and operate it, a result so mil of dan
gers, embarru«etDer>t». and difficulties, that
it should not be allowed to enter Into dis
cussion except AS a Us? and unavoidable
solution of a problem not othe; wise to be
•oired- The government director* are
still of the opinion that it wot'd 1* better
for the Ttiited States to loae every dollar
of its debt »nd execute a release to the
company, than undertake the dalles of a
common carrier of goods and passenger*,
thereby establishing a precedent which
won.d surely create mischief far beyond
the benefit to he reaped from so hazardous
an experiment.
It inutt be clear, too, says the report,
that every rear that is allowed to pa»s
without liquidation and settlement of the
debt facte—es to a serious extent the diffi
culties of the situation. The debtor com
pany is necessarily uuder a disadvantage
compared with its unfettered rivals. it
a large debt to the supreme power of
the laud- It cannot deal a: arm's length
with it* creditor, for the ordinary consider
ations that operate as between individuals
or < orporations do not. st least may not,
apply. The meani by which a settlement
is finally to be made of the questions be
tween it and the govern men . the report
says, are to be passed upon and determined
by a large body of the country, actuated,
it may be. in some instances by houeat
f>r» judice founded upon iroj>erfect know
edge or distorted representation of the
facts, or not uafrequently by the convic
tion that some punitory measures should
be adopted by the corporation, even at the
risk of diminishing the ability to respond.
That body of men meets only at intervals,
and it* attention is generally engrossed
witn other more important subjects upon
which legislation is urgently demanded.
These and other elements of uncertainty
embarrass the movement* of the com pan y
andparaUzc its freedom of action. It is
as important to the government as to the
company, says the report thafc all ueces
sary liberty should be given the managers
of the corporation to develop the resources
upon which the fu.nre solvency of the
road must depend. It is not possible, it
says, that e railway company such as is the
Union Pacific 6hall remain for any con
siderable length of time iu the same con
dition. It must move in one direction or
the other. It must improve or deteriorate.
The government directors "assume that
some settlement should now be made, aud
command the conclusions of the majority
report of the commission appoiuted under
the act of March a, lv*7, as sound, judicious
and practical, and they earnestly hope
they will meet with the approval of con
frees. My adopting these conclusions they
are of the opinion that the government
will secure its claim beyond any reason
able Hjkk. Its lien, they assert, will *»e
placed In such as will make enio:ce
ment possible Iu case of default iu the
payment of interest, and every year in
future will make the ultimate payment of
the principal more probable
Concluding their report, the govern
meut directors say tnat so far as they have
been able to ascertain the Union Pacific
has been in the past managed with fideli
ty and intelligence and everything that
could reasonably be expected has been
done to keep the road in the line of ira
provement and satisfy the just require
ments of the government Tne report is
signed by A. C. Ilsskill. Mr. A. Hanca, F.

CHICAGO. Dec. L—The Transcontinental
representatives yesterday iurth-r con
sioered the proposed revision of Pacific
coast freight tariffs. The question of
grading rates, or. in other words, making
rates from Chicago *0 per cent, of the
rates from New York, took up most of the
time Representatives of the Rock Island
aud Rurkngton tried hard to obtain con
General Traffic Manager Stubbs, of the
Southeru Pacific, strougiy oppwed the
proposition. He showed that the present
methods inakiug rates from all points to
the Missouri river the same as from New
York was rather for the benefit of Chicago
than otherwise, and be could not com
prehend why representatives of Chicago
lines were "trying to bring about the
adopt ;ou of the graded sy*!#-m. The Ist
ter, if adopted, he said, must l»e general.
Under the system St Louis. Omaha. Kan
sas City and'ali manufacturing points west
of Chic ago would be entitled to iower rates
than Chicago. By adopting a Hat rate
from all points east of the Missouri river
Chicago would be on an exact equality
with St Louis, Kansas City, Omaha and
more westerly poiuts, in which exeut
Chicago's unequalled facility would give
it command of the situation Its compe
tition nas not from New York or New Eng
land, but the business centers west of
Chicago. The present rates were certainly
low enough sud satisfactory to shippers,
as he had heard uo complaint and did not
think Chicago people desired to have the
graded system adopted. It would give
v\ esteru competition a material advautage
in rates.
CHICAGO, Dec. I.—The lines in the trans
continental Association to-day practically
agreed at their meeting here to make a
change in rates to the Pacific coa«t. in ac
cordance with the desires of shippers,
who have complained that the rates from
Chicago and other western points are too
high, iu fact, too near the New York basis,
so it is to be expected that the new rates
will be put into effect by Jannary. The
rates will be graded iu the following or
der. From Missouri river point*; from
Mississippi river poiuts: from Peoria, from
Chicago; from Detroit; from Cleveland
and so ou. The rates iu detail will prob
ably be agreed on Monday.
CHICAGO. I>ec. I.—The general managers
of East-bouud railroad lines agreed at a
meeting to-day, to restore rates on all
classes of dead freight, including grain
and provisions, and to advance dressed
beef rates to a basis of £0 cents a hundred
pounds, and live stock rates to 2 l 3 cents.
The se*siou lasted all day. The restora
tion of rates is delated five days longer
thau expected, the time for the change to
take place being December 17, instead of
December Li.
