satl'tled that the "led book" Is com

Instead It fell fiom their lips that none

The ellstilct attoiney acknowledged
that none of the cleiks had ever seen
the book because it was the purpose
of the cashier In fuitlieilng tho con

er employes. In October, ISM, he said
the svstcm whereby the cleiks wcio
awaie of the transactions was changed
bv Hopkins lor the xe-ry purpose of
deceiving the cleiks and the "red

The- "iod book," he insisted. Is a pait
of the bunk books, and entiles In the

Mi Shields nsseited that not a single

He explained tills by saving that the

Tho witness admitted that the "led

months befoio and In most Instances
six months. In explanation of his an
swer tho witness said the calculations
weio made at the end of oveiv slc
mo'iths and, so lar as that time Is
cemccintd with lespect to tho tiansac
tlor.s, wns coincident with tho calcula
tions. 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.
Tho two amounts brought out by tho
crofs-examlnatlon, the witness con
tinued, can ho accurately tiaiod
through the other books of the bank.
Tho "rod book" he admitted did not
contnln any regular entries, and Is not
paged and Is In Die nntuie- of a mem
orandum He said there woie a num
ber of clerical errois In calculations of
Intei ert in the "led book" and one Im

from Mr. SIiIpUIh that "It must be ie
incinbeied that the- ted book wus not
yet In evidence, nlthough the Indirect
but Ingenious manner In which It Is
being exploited would give thut Im
pression." 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. He
refused to become i at tied and paused
when the- questions of Mi. Shields ap
pealed ambiguous to him.
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

The question was objected to, as tho
book speaks for Itself and Is not et
In evidence. Aigument between coun
