Hearst'." fight against the Coal Trust
was Indorsed snd his i-xi-ninle was cited
as one -worthy of emulation.
This resolution uaa Inserted In the plat
form only after a long straggle In the
committee, and at lat was gained. It Is
dd. by tl:o graco of David oVemn-ycr.
Each faction of the contention, the
Hearst and anti-Hearst, from the begin
ning to the end, was on the lookout for
possible tricks.
While the committee was wrestling with
the commendatory resolution, time was
hanging heavy on the floor of the con
vention. The temporary and permanent
officers were of the anti-Hearst clement,
and when s. motion waa made to call up
on speakers the "antls" thought they t;
la It a plan to rtarnpede the convention

apalnst The Republic occur-i'd the atten
tion of the Lincoln County Circuit Coiirt
all of to-day. Adjournment was taken at
S o'clock until 9 a. m. to-morrow. It Is
probable that all of the teitlmony will
be linishrd by the middle of to-moriMv

Ivo Meriwether was on the stand until
afternoon, when he told of the publication
oi thi? editorial In The Republic, In which
he was characterized as an ally and friend
of Edward Butler and as a trickster. He
said that Rutlcr had often approached him
and made money piopoiltions for political
fivers, but that he had alna! refused
them.
There was much contention over the ad-niK-"ibillty
of some of the testimony.
Other wltnsses for the plaintiff to show
lK effect of The ltepubllc's classing him
with liutler were Richard O'Neill, a for
mer nominee for Clerk of the Criminal
Court on the Public Ownership tiiket.
Trank S Kowalkl. well known as an as
sociate of Meriwether, and former nom
inee for Recorder of Deeds on the Public
Ownership ticket, and James T. Robert's,
who Jiirured prominently In the Blair cass.
and who is an attorney in this case.
The defense began Us testimony with
Andrew Schneider Janitor of Druids' Hall,
who tented the hall to Butler for tt
bolting convention of 15&7.
Albert Gebhardt, whom Eutbr offered
51.0 to get off the Public Ownership
ticket as nominee for Marshal; his father.
Viator Gebhardt, who told of Butler's corn
ins to him for his intluence with his eon,
and the depositions of former Consres
inan Charles K. Joy and Democratlo State
Chairman Will A. Rothwe'l, followed for
the dtfense.
Joy told of glvinsr CAM for a. place on
the Public Ownership ticket. Rothwell told
of Butler" cominjj to him, claiming to
have llrst conferred with L Meriwether.

ICanoas Cltj-. Mo, April 7. ITnil.J i-tates
Stnatcr Wlll'ain J. Stone this afternoon
was en the witness stand in the law olllce
of Frank 1. Walsh, siting his deposition
in the cae of Stone s. Chrimar. wherein
the Senator is endeavoring to reco r from
(leorge Lie Chrlman the sum of SIO.'A)
which ho put in the Kansas City Times
bomo j-rars ago.
The Senatot alleged in his petition that
when h- bought the stock al Us fact- value
or 510,ln) he was told that the controlling
interest would be held b- hlmslf. Judge
ChrHman. the then Secretarj- of State, A.
A, I.eueur, and a man named Groves.
Afterwards, so he alleged, he found thnt
corporations controlled the Times, and lie
demanded his monej- back, unwilling to
work with corporations.
TEDIOUS EXAMINATION.
Judge Chrisman was riprser.ttd b
Frank Walsh. John Welborn of L.eington
ard John Sea of Independence Stnatur
Stone v.as accompanU-d by Mr. O. 11
Dean. From 10 until 4 o'clock, tha Sena
tor was on the stand, with two hours."
interval for refreshments. Throughout the
proceeding., the distinguished witness was
treateJ with much consideration and. in
return, was affable. Only once did he show
a flash of the fighting spirit. That was
when Mr. Walsh, after enumerating a list
of companies the Senator had repreienid
in his professional capacltj-, inquired:
"Are there any ifcther corporations. Sen
ator, j'ou have not told us about?"
"No, I think not," was the laconic replj-,
"And I might add, for the benefit of
counsel, to gratify his- ambition and per
sonal regard, that he has been fairlj- dili
gent In this particular at least."
ATTITUDE TOWARD CORPORATIONS.
The mala point in tho examination was
to prove that Senator Stone's alleged dis
approval of corporations; on which grounds
he ! demanding the return of fio.oco. 1
nothlrg more than a tachnlcal one. Ac
cordingly, Mr. Walsh, conducting the ex
amination, asked him If It was not a fact
that lie had undertaken to buy the Times
for a corporation. Senator Stone answered
promptly that he had not.
"When f.rnt I tried f uy the Times,"
he said, "I rprefctnted I II. Jones of St.
Loula. I marie a bid cf JirB.o. for It. Mr.
Cox, then owning- It, held out for a higher
Ceure, and Hie negotiations dropped."
"But jou did rprnt corporation! nt
othT llmee, did ou cot?" the Senator
wan aiked.
He admitted that he had officially rrp-rox'-nted
