Continued Prom Pace One. either in tho open market or as an asset of the insolvent company. Mr. Krum argued that it was competent to show that Stock, as ono of the majority stockholders in the St. Louis Electrical Con struction Company, was llaWa to Mcysen- burg as a minority stockholder, and that , Meysenburg believed he hod a right to sell to Stock as a member of the Klnloch syn dicate wishing to relieve himself of his lia l tlllty. I Mr. Folk replied that Meyscnburtr had no claim against tho representatives of tho Suburban Railway, but against Stock, a third party, and even if ho had, the method he tock to collect It constituted bribery. Even If tho claim was a private and valid one. it had no concern with the caso on trial. Judge Douglas-said he wpuld hear evi dence as to the marketable value of the stock, and as to whether Stock was acting as tho representative of tho Suburban Rail way. Attorney Krum, resuming- his statement, said the defense would show that when tho assets of tho company were turned over to Mejsenburg as security- for money ad vanced, Messrs, Hanford. Kobusch and Sut ter, directors of the company, gave hlra their notes for $10,000. secured by shares representing $30,000 worth of stock of tho when the company was found In solvent. Charles B. Stark, as a represet ative of the minority stockholders, ex amined tho books and discovered that tho Klnloch syndicate. In which Stock and Tur ner were directors, as they also were of the construction company, had so juggled tho latter company's affairs that all Its assets had been turned over to the Klnloch. syndicate. Charles Stark Informed Stock that he would proceed against the syndicate to recover the valuo of his shares, and tho syndicate had therupon paid Stark dollar for dollar. Henry Gaus, another minority stockholder, also brought suit to recover his money, and the suit Is now pending. Meysunburg also had sought legal advice on th question of proceeding to recover the money he ad-anced. Thus, Mr. Krum s,ald, when Stock ap proached Meysenburg ln 1M1 with a propo sition to buy his shares of stock. Meysen burg assumed B9 he had a right, that Stock wished to relieve himself of hi3 liabili ty to Meysenburg as a minority stock holder, and ho had a perfect right to sell the stock. When Stock gave him the check for $9,000 Meysenburg had his own book keeper figure up the exact amount due hlra. as principal and interest, on the' shares, which amounted to SS,97i The difference between this and the amount of Stock's check Mcyscnburff paid over to Stock at once, and deposited the check In tho Boatmen's Bank to his own personal account. SAYS THAT SIEYSEADUHG opposed sunuimAX hill. Mr. Krum said that Meysenburg's whole attitude toward the bill was consistent. Ha had opposed It from the beginning, and hta vote is recorded against It en Its final passage. If there were arrangements mada to pass the bill, they were made long before the transaction between Meysenburg and Stock. It was not necessary to secure his vote at that time the necessary votes had already been provided for and secured, months before. In conolusion, Mr Krum called attention I a I' aaamnWwF (111111111111111111111 ii(IJiHv!ifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiW JaM y r BiifiiiiiiiiiiiiiiM Lfsh',irv JaiiiiiiaifiiiiiiiiBL f Q 4a : .4 i i sfc : J If..

Before calling- any witnesses Circuit At torney Folk offered ln evidence certain sec tions of tho articles In the statutes cre ating tho Council and enumerating- the pro visions for members) taking the cath.'tho manner of recording- the proceedings, etc. These were admitted without objection. Mr. Lehmann said the defense would admit that Meysenburg was a member of the Council during tho entire period referred to in the irdlctmcnt. and later on, to expedite mat ters, he also admitted that the defendant was a member of tho Railroad Committee for the same period. This admission precluded the necessity of examining Adolph Troll, clerk In the office of the clerk of tho Circuit Court, who ad ministered the oath to Meysenburg when he was sworn into office. George F. Mockler, sscretary of the City Council, was the first State's witness ex amined. Tho purpose of his examination was to show by the Journal of the Council the progress of the Suburban Railway bill, known as Council bill No. 44, from its in troduction on October 9. 1S00, by Mr. Car roll, by request, up to February S, 1301, tho date of Its final passage. The witness began reading- from the Jour nal, showing that action had been delayed on the bill through thirty-two sessions. Mr. Lehmann objected to the State show ing what was not done by the Council. Ho also objected on the ground that Mey senburg was only one member of the Rail road Committee, could not control the com. mltteo'H actions, and could not be held responsible for any commission or emis sion of tho committee. "If this bill was held-up ln the commit tee, it was not his fault." he said. "Tho other two members could have reported it at any time. There seems to be a disposi tion here to censuro somebody for delaying the bill and not rushing It through. I thought It was publlo policy not to rush through a bill givng away valuable privi leges, and that Counollmen should be com mended for pursuing thli policy. The peo ple should be thankful that bill wasn't rushed through. Judge Douglas overruled the objection, and counsel filed an exception. When Mr. Folk attempted to explain the reason for certain questions he desired to ask the witness Mr. Lehmann Interrupted him In a way that piqued the Circuit Attorney, and a spirited tilt ensued. Mr. Folk appealed to the Court to compel Mr. Lehmann to cease interrupting him. and Judge Douglas was constrained to rebuke Mr. Lehmann. Mr. Lehmann then locked horns with the Court In an endeavor to convince his Hon or that he was entitled to Interrupt the Circuit Attorney on a point of order. The Judge patiently heard him. and then ob served again that he thought it better for attorneys to speak to the Court one at a tlifle. He decided against Mr. Lehmann's point of order and Mr. Lehmann sat down after assuring his Honor that he had had no intention of laying himself open to rebuke. Tho witness was excused, nnd the Circuit Attorney then offerend in evidence Coun cil bill No. 44. PHILIP STOCK FIRST WITNESS FOR STATE. Philip Stock, secretary of the St. Louis Brewing Association, who was one of the most Important witnesses in tho bribery investigation, was called. After he had stntM his name and business, he was asked: "What connection did you have with the Suburban railway bill?" Mr. Lehmann immediately interposed an objection on the ground that the question was incompetent. The question and objection precipitated a lengthy argument. Interspersed with aide remarks of a sarcastic nature between the Circuit Attorney and Messrs. Lehmann and Krum. Mr. Lehmann contended that any connec tion the witness might have had with the bill or with the Suburban people could not connect the defendant with the transaction. The Indictment averred that the defendant had made a corrupt agreement with the witness, and the State had as yet not prov en that agreement, but was trying to In troduce evidence to substantiate the aver ment that such an agreement existed. The connection of Stock with the Subur ban people was a transaction between a second and third party, and "it was not shown that the defendant knew of that transaction. Such testimony, ha argued, was clearly Incompetent, and he quoted numerous decisions ln support ot his con tention. Mr. Folk replied that the tarHmony waa v.

He quoted decisions In support of this neir. Mr. Krum said tho State must first prove the agreement between Meysenburg and Stock before It could Introduce any evidence to substantiate that allegation. The State tad not as yet established the corpus delicti tho mala Issue of tho Indictment- It could xot. before this was established, introduco any evidence tending to substantiate the main issue, but which, standing alone, would not establish it. The point was argued at considerable length, and at the conclusion of the argu ments Judge Douglas announced that he would look up tho authorities quoted and render a decision this morning-. After the adjournment of court a confer, ence was held between the counsel and Judge Douglas to determine whether to dis miss the Jury or to keep It In confinement. It was decided to allow the Jurors to go home, and they were dismissed after being cauuonea Dy tne Judge. HORSE RAN INTO STREET CAR. Animal Instantly Killed and the Driver Thrown Into the Street.

An Interesting feature of the venture will be Its effect on the litigation now pending between the Government and the Muscogeo and Western Railroad In connection with the bridging of the river near Muscoge. The War Department at present has grant ed a temporary Injunction against the rail road, restraining it from bridging the river with any structure that would prevent nav igation.
