strongly to Vienna, according to a Ge-

Section 13 over which the house

bring to an end a remarkable series of
i legal contests in the state and federal

The session today was occupied by
Wm. Howard in his closing argument

Solicitor Dorsey, who took issue with
statements as to what had been

tacked the testimony of state witness
es and sought to convince the governor
of the alleged inconsistencies and con

davits of Jim Conley, the negro who
served a prison term after the trial.
He asserted Conley's testimony was
the invention of his own mind and
designed to divert suspicion from him

Howard declared that by the testi

"We contend the evidence shows the
yellow- paper on which one note was
written, was in the basement of the
pencil factory,: said Howard; "and
that Coniey got it there, and wrote the
notts there. The record shows no or
iginal pieces of paper like the order
blank on which the notes were written
were in Frank's office or in the fac
tory's store. The records show that Mr.
Pecker, a former employe of the fac
tory, before he left his position, bund
led up all the used order blanks, in
cluding the series of which this par
ticular yellow sheet appeared and
sent them to the basement to h.

On Note Good In Berlin
ASSOCIATKD PKES3 DISPATCHl
WASHINGTON, June IS. Ambas
sador Gerard cabled the first infor
mal report of how the last American
note to Germany was received in of
ficial quarters in Berlin. Ho spoke
of its reception as friendly and
teous arid said the unanimous
ion seemed to be the document af
forded a basis for diplomatic nego
tiation and settlement.
Long extracts from German news
paper editorials, most of which had
already been published here, were,
transmitted by the ambassador. There
was a friendliness of tone in them
and an absence of the bitterness,
which previously characterized some
newspaper utterances "The ambas
sador's own' comment was brief anil
of a general character, hearing out
cour-the press reports of' the favorable
opin-1 impression made by the note, ts-
pcially because published reports had
leached Germany that the I'nited
States would send something in the
nature of an ultimatum. Gerard gave
no intimation as to when a reply
would be received, or what its spe
cific character would be.
