It was always a matter Ot contention
between the corporations and the Dis
trict government whether or not the Com
missioners hail any authority to make mi
order such as lhat or December, 1803, to
charge $1 lor each pole to be set or
replaced, and not lmg ago the Western
Union Telfgrapli Company renewed lis
objections to the payment of the fee In
a case where jiIkiui $10 was collected.
The company did not object to paying a
fee rora permit, because its issuance in
volved somo extienre. which, in the judg.
ment "of the officials, should be reimbursed,
but where a single permit embraced more
than one pole it was the liablt of the Dis
trict government to add a dollar to the
cost for each pole above one, and this the
company rcgnrded as a tac.
The Commissioners finally came to that
view, and on the IStli instant amended the
order so that but ?1 should be charged
for each penult, whether It shall authorize
the erection or replacement of one polo
or twenty or one hundred.
This modiflciit ion Is made retroactive, cov

Tho sixth week or the lloltwill trial be
gan In Judsb Bradley's court at 9 o'clock
this morning. Each day's session will lieslii
at that hour during the remainder or the
trial, and, lr necessary, the court will not
adjourn until 5 o'clock or later.
The cross examination or Miss Josephine
Throckmorton wus continued by Mr. Wortli
ington. It had progressed but a few min
utes when it was suspended and Detective
Henry Laccy was called by Mr. Darling
ton. The detective testified that he accom
panied Julius Truesdell, a reporter, to
the home of Secretary Carlisle, to see the
latter's coachin.ui, George Johnson, who
was formerly in the service of Judge
Holt. He heard Johnson tell Mr. Trues
dell that Judge Holt had repeatedly said
none ot bis properly should go to his rela
tives. Miss Throckmorton took her place in the
witness chulr again, and Mr. Worthing
ton began by trying to fix dates on which
tlie witness had visited Washington and
Judge Holt. Coiicernliigull or Miss Throck
morton's visits to Judge Holt's house,
she did not rcmemLcr anyone now living
whom she hail seen there, save the ser
vants. She had never seen any of tho
hcirs-at-law until site met them In court.
"In 1880 yoa were lu Washington, were
you not?" askc I Mr. Worthlugton.
"I was here the whole year."
"You visited Judge Holt every week,
probably several times?"
"Yes, sir."
"And in that time you saw neither Mrs?
Ifciy nor Miss H ynes, thouga they may have
been Ihere two weeks?"
The witness wo'Jld frequently confound
the words "recollection" and "Impression."
nnd Mr. Worthiiigton would as frequently
try to untangle her phraseology.
"What do you mean by Impression?" ask
ed the attorney.
"I mean Just what I say," replied the wit
i.ess, 'wltli some severity-
"Were jou In Washititon In June, 1837?"
"Ills my Impression that I was-"
"Oh, you say your Impression, your Im
pression," said Mr. Worthlugton, Impa
tiently. "Well, I think Judge Holt was here-"
Miss Throckmorton had an "impression"
tiiat her god-father was In Washington In
the Tall of 18S7. She was not iicsltive.
however, that Judge Holt did not go to the
Hot Springs at that period.
The witness recalled again her visit to
thlscity in 1891 and of her meeting Judge
Holt at the Center Market.
l'rom January to April, 1891, Miss
Throikinorton visited the Judge very fre
quently. She had no recollection ot Judge
Holt ever summoning a servant to see her
to the door on her departure. He would
alwaysaccompany her to the door when he
was able.
Major Ilutttrwortb questioned the wit
ness, on croR-s-evamlnation, but his queries
were curtailed to a considerable extent be
cause of the objections of opposing coun
sel, sustained rrequcntly by'the court.
"Willi the retirement of Miss Throckmor
ton from the wltncs3 chair Mr. Darliugtun
stated that It had been the Intention or the
cavcatees to close their case with th;-t
witness, but they now felt compelled to
summon Wjclirr Throckmorton, the brother
or Miss Throckmorton. He could not be
here until tomorrow. With that cccept'oa.
the evidence ot the beneficiaries was all in.
As the first witness in sur-rebuttal Mr.
Worthlugton called George Johnson, the
coachman. The witness tcstllied as to tho
little account books kept by Judge Holt
and In which the Judge Jetted tils daily ex
penditures. He was very regular in the
matter and would make entries after each
Upon Mr. Darlington's questioning the
witness admitted he had never seen Inside
the books before today. Still he always saw
the judge make cntrlesln them uftcrevcry
Martha. Scott, another former servant of
Judge Holt, was recalled and asked about'
theIIttle account books. Whenever the
Judge would go away he would Instruct
the witness to keep account of all market
expenses during his absence. On his re
turn he would copy these In a small book,
which Martha identified In court as one of
the account bocks-
The servant testified that she never Raw
Miss Annie Tully until she saw her In court.
Miss Tully is a young white girl in the serv
ice of the Throckmorton family, who stated
on the witness stand that she had accom
panied Miss Throckmorton to Judge Holt's
house on two occasions. On the latter ot
these visits she sat down in the hall and
waited an hour. The servant testified that
the hall was only about three feet wide,
very dark and had no seats In It.
The servant admitted to Mr. Darlington
that the front of the hall was more than
three feet wide. She still Insisted, how
ever, that It was not large enough to com
fortably seat a person in a chair, although
the large casket In which the remains of
Judge Holt lay after death was carried
through the hall.
Fred. Schradcr. a reporter, was recalled.
He had previously testified concerning a
conversation with Luke Devlin the day
after the will turned up. In answer to Mr.
Worthington's query the witness testified
that Mr. Devlin had told him that he had
no doubtas to the genuineness ot the signa
tures ot the three witnesses to the will.
He also said the will was doubtless drawn
and signed when Gene.SLennanaudGrant
and Mrs. Sherman were guests at the
Holt mansion. Mr. Devlin had denied on
the stand the conversation which Mr.
Schroder testified as having occurred.
Judge Holt's expense account book was
again the subject of consideration when
Charles Strothers, a colored man-servant
in the Judge's house, was recalled to the
staud. He remembered distinctly that
his employer kept such a set ot books.
The only furniture in the hallway or the
Holt mansion was a hat-rack. If peo
ple wanted to sit down, Strothers said,
it vould be necessary to sit on the steps
leading to the secobd floor. There was
never a chair in the hallway, though, lie
witness acknowledged, it was ut one place
eight feet wide.
Miss Mary licit was alo a witness In
rebuttal. Uprn enc occasion she told the
judge she Intended to keep an expense ac
count. He iVIsed her not to do so because
it did net pay. The witness Identified the
becks in evidence as the same her gre.it
uncle kept.

Stocks Affected by Political aud For
elunNews. New York, June 22. Professional op
erators, who loaded up with stocks last
week, on the adoption ot the gold plank
by the Republican party, experienced a
change or heart this morning, and were en
deavoring to get out of their holdings.
Some ot tlie sellers ot stocks professed
to rear a combination of the Populists,
Tree silverites, and Democrats, but It can
be said that actual owners ot securities
were not at all alarmed by this theory.
In fact, the great bulk of the buslncssdurlng
the past hour was for the account ot the
trading element. Tobacco, after Its early
break, recovered to 60 7-8a6G 1-2, and
was taken by brokers supposed to be act
ing for Insiders. Talk ot early dividend
action by the directors and the retirement
of the scrip recently Issued was revived.
At 11 o'clock the market was somewhat
steadier in tone.
Speculation at the Stock Exchange after
11 o'clock was extremely dull. TLe de
mand for securities was extremely light,
while the bears were not disposed to follow
up the advantage gained at the opening.
The gold engagements for shipment to
Europe tomorrow were increased to
$700,000, but even this failed to revive
business. At midday the market wus
dull and weak In tone.
