The witness compared an Item of SS.SVJ 10 In the- regular cash book dated Muv 'J I. 18-H, with an item for a -lnillar amount In the reel book.whlch Is enteiod In lenel pencil and dated Oct. S". ISO! The Item of fl,il9 was fuithor tiaced by the witness to the ltdger. Tho amount was enteiod on the latter, the witness said, to the ciedlt of tho poison who received the check, Tho "red bool." not being In ovldcnce Mr. Gold smith was not pot milted to mention tho person's name.

Mi. Shields hi ought from the witness the admission that there Is apparently a page missing from the led book which would seem to have an Important heal ing on the figures and entiles under discussion. The witness said that when be first opened the book he- dlel not con sider It a book of the bank. He con sldPied It such when tho calculations compaie-d with Hansactlons in tho other books. Ho explained this by sa Ing that pi lor to IS91 the calculations were enteiod lu the leelgcr, but since then the "ted book" had been substi tuted for pitch calculations, nnd that this book fullllts and llxcs the icstilt of tho two Incomplete accounts In the other books. An answei given b thu witness along the same line to the ef fect that an account book, no mutter bow bnillv II ma Unrtl If It tltn imd supplies the omission In other books ot a system shows that the- book Is peitlncnt to that system, led to a bril liant passage between the cross ex amlnois nnd the witness, with points slightly In fnvoi of the witness.

The- examination of the witness was resumed with a question by the dis trict attoino., the effect of which would bring befoio the juiy other ttaiisnctlons in the "icd book" coinci dent to transactions In tho other books.
