REPUBLIC SPECIAL.
New York. Nov. E. Official 4 announce
ment was made late this afternoon that
the price of steel billets had been cut J4
a ton by the United States Steel Coropora
tion. At lite same timo it was stated that
there would be no change In the price of
steel rails. '
Heavy speculative selling of the United
States Steel shares by Western houses
to-day, together with some liquidation In
them; produced a demoralized market for
these stocks and they sold at the lowest
prices on record Just before the closing
of the exchange
Pressure against the steel shares start
ed at the opening of the market when
7,000 of the preferred sold from 57 to 57
compared with yesterda's closing price

The stock continued to slump as largo
blocks of it were thrown on the market
and without any Important rallies sank
steadily to 64 and closed at W-X. This
was a net loss1 for the day of 2ft points.
The stock previously had sold as low on
October 13 as CPU.
The decline In the common stock was
equally conspicuous. After it had opened
down, at 12H.,lt sold at.10 and closed
at 11. a net loss of'19
A new low record, was also made for the
bonds, which sold under 67.
It was natural that, with the -heavy de
cline In the stocks, there should be dis
cussion of the future dividend policy of the
corporation, and that statements should
be made that the rate on the common
would be passed at the next meeting.
Soma were so confident of this that, they
offered the next dividend on the curb at
16 cents, and it sold at that- figure. The
rate now being paldtis EO'cents'quarterly.
The trading in the Steel Issues dom
inated the entire market. The transactions
in them -amounted to 210,000 shares, or
more than 40 per cent of the total busi
ness of the day.
In case the "price of. materials is reduced
it Is believed that there will be a general

checks and certificates from the bank
showing the deposit and,' withdrawal of the
sums named In Its accusation on the ilatej
charged.
It has proved that Farrls was at the La
clede Hotel on the date mentioned by Lee
and that minor circumstances on which
Lee was asked to prove his story have
been shown to be correct.
The defense, on the contrary, has Intro
duced fiat denials by Farrls and six Sena
tors of the charges Lee made against
them on the stand. It has Introduced doc
tors' testimony to the effect that Senator
Smith, one of those mentioned, was at
home in bed on the day prior to that on
which Lee states he saw him elsewhere,
and Doctor Wilson of St. Louis testified
that Smith was in no physical condition
to go downtown the following day.
It has read letters in court in which It
claims that Lee's statements are im
peached, and it pointed out the foregoing
letter to eviuence the fact that Lee
claimed while writing It to have sent 57,000
back to Kelley on the very day he claims
hi- distributed it to the Senators.
It also has introduced witnesses to tes
ify to Farris's character and has put
other witnesses on the stand who swore
-.hat they heard Lee make eulogistic state
ments about Farrls, denjlng the charges
of corruption at times subsequent to the
ipread of rumors about briber' In the
Senate.
CROW TASGI.ES
DOCTOR PCSMSCTOX.
In rebuttal the State has tangled up at
least one w Itness Doctor Pennington as
to sundry details and has made the point
that if all these witnesses of the defense
nre so sure what occurred at the close of
tho session of 1901, they ought to be Just
as sure about matters at the close of other
sessions. Jlr. Crow tripped up several
witnesses and secured admissions that
.they were not certain what occurred in
detail een of last winter's session.
He has also questioned an entry by
which Doctor Wilson kept record of his
isit to Senator Smith's house and asked
why it was written In the book In differ
ent kind of ink from that In which other
entries on the same page appear.
After a brief continuance of this rebut
tal to-morrow morning, each attorney will
rresent his case, and Mr. Crow and Mr.
Jeffries both believe that tho matter will
bo In the hands of the jury soon after
court opens to-morrow.
More than (thirty witnesses "were exam
ined and cross-examined in the course-of
the day, the testimony of John A. Lee
and Frank Ferris being the features.

Farrls was called early In the morning
and made his answers in a loud voice

LEE O.V THE
STAJfD AGAI.
John A. Lee was tho next most Im
portant witness of the day. Upon direct
examination he testified that he had
dealings with the Sugar Trust representa
tives for publishing articles in one of
his papers; He claimed to have received
,000 for Oils.
He went ocr his testimony of the day
before and was not to be shaken on any
point He also Identified a check for $1,000
presented In court as the one that had
been turned over to Attorney General
Crow for use before tho Cole County
Grand Jury.
Another check, dated February 1, 1902,
Indorsed by Jenny A. Lee, was one he
claimed he had cashed for Kelley. Lee
said that he did not have time to deposit
It before getting the money on it, so he
cashed it for Kelley and turned the check
over to his wife.
In the production of letters In the after
noon the defense tried to show the con
nection between this check and one of
those mentioned in the correspondence
read beforo the Jury.
Upon cross-examination, he said the
J1.C0O, which he claimed to have received
from President Havemeyer of tho Amer
ican Sugar -Refining Company by mall,
was for his campaign fund, and that It
was to help him in his race for Governor.
Detective James Tracy was called im
mediately after Lee, but he has had his
tfjp from St Louis for little purpose. Ho
,liad .with him requisition, papers for D. J.
Kelley that had been made out some time
ago, but the objection of the defense to
these papers was sustained by the court
Tracy was on the stand for only two or
three minutes.
rHESIDEXT HlLL,
first witm:ss.
The day opened with President Walker
Hill of tho American Exchange Bank on
the stand. He was followed b Lee, and
Tracy came next.
W. J. Chambllis, who has appeared sev
eral times to testify to records of tho
Senate, was called for a few moments to
identify Senate bill No. 110, and to verify
one or two dates mentioned by the State
In Its reference to this bill.
Senator Emmett A. Dowell was then
called, but remained on the stand only
while he testified to records of the Sen
ate. His testimony was unimportant on
these matters.
John A. Lee was then recalled and again
testified to the check for $100 presented to
hlra before. He had Identified another
check for , handed him by the defense,
as a check he had received from Kelley
for personal services. Asked to explain
some Indorsements on the back, he said
that he had not cashed It In St Louis, as
he was sick In bed at Jefferson City at the
time.
Upon cross-examination by Attorney
Jourdan, Lee adhered to this Btory. He
stated that he was in Jefferson City when
he received another check, and that this
latter was received Just ten days before
he became Lieutenant Governor.
TARRIS TESTIFIES
I.V HIS OWS BEHALF.
Farrls followed to the stand. His ac
quaintance wkh Kelley. he claimed, was
made In the lobby of the Planters Hotel
in St Louis in December. 1901.
Farris's testimony wiis a flit denial of
all charges. He asserted he had no con
nection with Lee or the alum bill, nor did
he bae any but official conversations as
to the matter with the then Lieutenant
Governor.
he denied he knew Kelley at the time
the bill was passed, or that he had even
heard of him at that time. He denied the
episode of the telegram Lee claimed to
have given him, and said that on the
night on which this Incident was said to
have occurred, he had been stricken with
fainting spells in Senator Morton's room.
He went to the Senate the next day, ho
said, but had to be sent home in a car
riage. Senator Haynes followed, and then Doc
tor Pennington took the stand. Mr. Crow's
success In confusing this witness as to
dates and figures made it appear as if his
presence wap rather a point for the State
than for the defense, by whom he had
been summoned.
Doctor Pennington's testimony was In
troduced by the defense to prove that Sen
ator Smith was sick In bed at his home In
St. Louis tho day following the adjourn
ment of the Legislature In 1901.
Upon questioning by Tarrls's attorrey
he said th.it he had accompanied a Doctor
Wilson of North Seventh street to Smith's
home on that occasion. He said that he
did not see Smith the next day.
Attorney Crow then took him in hand
for the cross-examination and questioned
him rauidly and severely for half an hour.
He elicited the statement from the wit
ness that he did not recollect Smith's ex
act address on that occasion, bat believed
he lived somewhere on Nebraska avenue.
He was also uncertain as to Doctor Wil
son's address, but believed the latter lb cd
-somewhere on North Seventh street.
Mr. Crow then secured statements to the
effect that the witness was not certain
who introduced him to Doctor Wilson:
that the witness never treated Smith pro
fessionally, and 'that he did not go to
Smith's house thereafter.
- He said he had -visited Doctor Wilson to
borrow; a- book, but had forgotten 'what
book It was; upon being questioned as to
STATE BUILDING IS
who had told him Doctor Wilson had the
book he needed he raid he did not know.
Asked why he had not secured the book
from the library of tho Marion-Sims Col
lege, it which the witness was a student
at the time, he responded that he did not
think the library had that "ptcinl book.
Mr. Ciow again asked him about the
date. The witness responded that It was
the day after the Legislature adjourned.
Asked how he knew this, he said ho be
lieved he saw It In the papers. He admit
ted that he did not know of his own
knowledge, through any personal Interest
In the affair.
Attorney Crow emphasized this point
and Anally secured an admission that the
witness probably Ivad heard the Legis
lature had closed the previous day through
those with whom he had been conversing.
The witness could not recollect dates on
which other sessions of the Legislature
closed, and Mr. Crow emphasized this
point also.
SMITH CAME TO
I'OM.NGTO.VS HOUSE.
llr. Crow seemed to attain his point of
shaking the witness on his remembrance
of the order In which events occurred,
then demanded suddenly:
"Did you see either Doctor Wilson or
Smith after that time?"
"Yes." responded the witness, slowly.
"Did they come to see you?" asked Mr.
Crow.
"Yes."
"Did they talk to jou about your visit
to Smith's home?"
"Yes," said the witness, hesitatingly.
"That will do," said Mr. Crow, and
the witness was released for the time.
Mr. Crow scored several points through
out the day, so far as tangling witnesses
up was concerned.
Tho defense Introduced Senator Haynes,
who denied' all connection with Farrls,
the alum blllVor.-any recompense for his
vote on legislation.
He stated details of the day In Jefferson
City Just prior to his departure in 1901
and was cross-examined by Mr. Crow,
who secured admissions that though ho
recollected details of that session he wa3
not so sure about previous assemblies or
the session of 190.1.
President Walker Hill of the American
Exchange Bank was the first witness
called and identified the check of $7,000
as being upon his bank and as having his
signature thereon. On cross-examination,
he stated that he did not know Tar
ris, although he believed he had once seen
him.
TESTIMONY REGARDI.tG
LEE'S SIGNATURE.
Paying Teller Hettel of the American
Exchange Bank followed with testimony
as to Lee's signature. Attorney Jourdan
showed him several letters. Including
some Identified by Lee as his own hand
writing and others that Lee claimed not
to have written.
One of these last, Mr. Hettel said,
seemed to him to be In Lee's writing, and
he stated he was quite sure as to the sig
nature. Letters he said he thought he
could identify as being in Lee's writing
were those of November 17 and Novem
ber 25. 1901, which laBt was one that Lee
had claimed not to nave written, and of
April 9, 1902. This last letter, he thought,
was in Lee's handwriting. He was not
sure about the signature. He had thought
that letters dated December 20 and 29,
1902, and March 20 and 31, were In Lee's
writing.
On cross-examination, Mr. Crow merely
asked him if he were positive he could
identify the writing, and received a neg
ative answer. He had asked whether it
was not possible to be mistaken on let
ters and telegrams written In pencil. Tho
witness said that he might be. Mr. Crow
said that was all he cared to ask and the
witness was excused.
Judge W, N. Evans, Circuit Judge of the
Twentieth District, was then put on tho
stand and testified to seeing Orchard in
Jefferson City the early part of March 19,
1901. This Is the day on which Lee said
Orchard wss in St Louis. It was In tho
Governor's office at the Capitol that he
saw Orchard, he said, and he believed that
Orchaid remained In the city, although he
ilmself went to St. Louis on an afternoon
t aln.
MORTO.V RALLIES
TO FARRIS'S SUPPORT.
Senator John F. Morton was then intro
duced, his testimony being a denial of all
charges made by Lee. He testified that
Farrls was In his room at the Madison
Hotel on the day Lee claimed to have
brought a telegram there, but he denied
that the then Lieutenant Governor visited
the room at all. He said Tarris was seized
with illness there and that the latter was
tjulte sick next day. He testified that Far
rls had to be taken away from the Capiol
in a carriage the next day.
J. T. Bradshaw, editor of the Chlllicothe
Democrat, was asked by the defense If he
had not spoken to Lee about Farrls when
Leo was In Chlllicothe on the occasion of
the funeral of Mrs. Dockery. He said he
had and that Lee told him then that he
disbelieved all charges of corruption
against Farrls. Witness said Lee told hitf
U. Senator Farrls had accepted any bribe,,
he knew nothing of it v
CHARACTER WITNESSES ?
TESTIFY FOR FARRIS.
It was here that editorials from The
Republic .-ero introduced once more.
Bradshaw was asked if it had not been
insinuated in editorials of that paper that
Farris was responsible for the defeat of
the alum bill, and he responded that be
believed such was the case. Bradshaw Is
a newspaper editor of Chlllicothe, and is
distantly related to Farrls.
Judge Evans was then recalled to tes
COMPLETED.
tify that Senator Orchard had tried cases
before his court. He did not mention the
dite.
R. P. Goodal! of St. James, Sheriff of
Laclede County, stated that he heard Lee
rpeak, and that the latter had spoken well
of Farris.
Doctor Thorpe of Jefferson City testified
that lie had attended Farris at the Madi
ton Hotel. March 17, 1501, and tint he
seemed too sick a man to do much run
ning around.
Charles Ward,' editor of the Rolla Her
ald, stated thnt ho had henrd Lee make
speeches which referred favorably to
Farrls.
J. W. Pool, also of Rolla. gave the
same testimony.
Seven witnesses were then Introduced to
testify to Farris's character. They were
Judge R. A. Holt, R. D. Walkinshaw, H.
T. Wright, J. D. Laney of Lebanon, and
W. R. Taft, Sheriff of Crawford County;
J. M. Eaton, a farmer of Crawford Coun
ty, residing near Stcclvllle, and A.'H. Har
rison, Prosecuting Attorney of Crawford
County. AH were Introduced by the de
fense and spoke well of Farris's character.
Mr. Crow did not cross-examine them.
Paying Teller Hettel was recalled to ex
press an opinion on the telegram signed
"James Sergeant," advising Kelley to take
a pleasure trip. He testified that he
thought the writing was Lee's. Ho was
not sure, however.
SENATORS DEW
ROODLE DEALS.
Senator Buell Matthews of St. Louis
County was on the stand and denied all
knowledge of any boodle transaction. He
was closely examined by the defense and
his denials resembled those of Farris.
Senators Smith and Costelio were called
In the order named and each denied the
charges flatly in every particular. They
said that they did not meet Lee In St
Louis, had no talk with him other than
conversations at Jefferson City, in the
course of their regular routine work, and
that they had never received money from
Farrls, or any one else, for alum legisla
tion. Senator Orchard was also firm In
his denials.
Doctor W. H. Wilson of St. Louis was
on hand with the account book he kept of
his cases and In which the note that he
visited Smith at his Nebraska avenue
home was set down. He stated that he
performed a slight operation on Smith
early one morning, the forenoon of March
IS, and that Smith would have been In
Buch condition tho following day that he
could not have gone downtown.
Attorney General Crow asked that the
book be kept as evidence, after cross-examining
the witness as to why the entry
about Smith appeared In a different color
Ink from that On the rest of the page.
Attorney Jourdan objected to the book
or even tho page at which It was open
being used or retained. Judge Graves
overruled this objection and had the pages
turned over as part of the evidence.
Charles Noble of St Louis testified to a
visit to Smith's house when the latter was
sick and said that the Senator was in bed
at the time.
LEE'S LETTERS ARE
READ IN COURT.
Then came the reading of the Lee let
ters. Attorney Jourdan spent the latter
part of the afternoon reading the epistles,
one or two, which Lee had stated were
not In his hand writing, being admitted as
evidence by the court on the testimony of
Hettel, who thought' there was a resem
blance to Lee's writing in them.
References to former Governor Stone
were frequent In these letters, sometimes
by name and sometimes, it Is believed, by
the mention of "S." One of these, which
Lee admitted having written, was dated
January 20, 1901, and contained the follow
ing sentences mlxed with some details
about his buying the St. Louis Grocer:
"I am told that House bill No. $8 is
making progress. Llghtholder Is back of
the first, and will vrobably have more
favorable report mauc. When It is en
grossed, it will be referred to the Com
mittee on Eleemosynary Institutions, and
there I can guarantee results. Governor
S. Is to take the matter up."
After some reference to an unnamed,
whom Lee claims he has to pay $100 at
first and J?j0 later for his work, the let
ter proceeds:
T will confer with Walker. I will have
to promise tho Senator who Introduces It
something. Promises are not very ac
ceptable up here. Stone savs Phelps has
employed a young man on the other side.
It seems S. wants to go. before the com
mittee to talk on the bill. Haynes has In
troduced a similar bill, and there seems
to be something doing."
In a postscript this letter says: "Stone
docs not appear to like the idea of my
writing to you direct so don't mention It
to him."
MONEY SEEKING
WITH ITCHING PAUL
This letter had never been mentioned
before, and is not one of the original Kel
ley letters previously published a few
months ago. Another letter, dated August
24, 1901, says that Crow and Cook are his
strongest opponents, tnrough their efforts
on the Equalization Committee, to enforce
the law against large corporations. In this
letter Lee tells Kelley that a certain sum.
contingent on the nomination, could be
used very acceptably, and that there are
means by which it could be paid ti-V
within one year. Other letters, that have
already been published. In one of which
Lee refers to himself as a "growling,
money-seeking fellow with an itching
palm." and in-another. of which he states
that there is a chance to beat Stone for
the senatorship by running Dockery him
self, against him, were also introduced.

TUB DEFEASE
CLOSES ITS CASE.
Letters about another J. A. Lee, about
Phelps believing that Republicans in tho
Senate were cheaper than Democrats, and
that Carroll was a better man to handle
things than Phelps, and finally a letter
dated March 31 of the present year. In
which he asks for money under the name
of "Sam Sergeant." cautioning Kelley to
send it with the bank as the only con
signor, were all road to the jury. The
telegram signed "His Wife" wound up
the list.
Attorney Jourdan then announced that
he rested his case. As Mr. Crow had pre
viously stated that the State had rested
its case after his second examination of
John A. Lee, it was reported that the mat
ter would go over until the nest day for
charges to the jury and for the attorneys
speeches. This caused the report that the
case would go to the jury to-night.
Mr. Crow rose, however, and announced
that he wished to introduce some testi
mony in rebuttal the first thing to-morrow
morning. Judge Graves- accordingly made
the announcement of adjournment until
to-morrow morning.
