Mail Order Houses Affected
The mail order business is hit hard
by the sudden postal increases,
order business is not limited to the
few widely known houses, but is con
ducted by a multitude of small mer
chandisers, located in cities, in towns
and even on rural routes. They sell
concievable kind of articles,
from pilis, lingerie and card games
.to stoves, tractors and houses. They
! elicit by mail, ship by mail, collect
j by mail, even visit by mail. A 50 per
j cent increase in the cost of mailing
j is a serious thing. It means millions
of dollars to mail order houses, with
j their "fliers", or circulars, which test
'be market; and to big publishers of
{books and popular magazines, which
out tens of millions of circulars

I the Lincoln permit. The first witness
I called was Gladys Moore, a former
I stenographer of Gordon Campbell's
j who testified she had typed the list
of all Campbell's holdings, which was
given to her by Mr. Bishop, who was
Mr. Campbell's land man. This list war
to be sent to some one in the East, who
was trying to assist Mr. Campbell in'
raising some finances. Her testimony
was not damaging to the defense.
The Government next introduced a
stipulation entered into with the coun-1
sei for the defense, regarding what
Mr. L. V, Beaulieu of Los Angeles,
California, a former attorney of
Gordon Campbell, would testify to and
what he had testified to before the!
Senate investigating committee. Sen
ator Walsh read most of the testimony
given before the Senate which was
very favorable to Senator Wheeler.
Mr. Beaulieu staling that Senator'The
Wheeler was to represent Mr. Camp
bell only in the state court. The next
witness was L. J. Wertheimer a Jew
stock salesman. It was brought out
that Wertheimer had been indicted and
plead guilty to using the mails to de
fraud in Texas in a stock selling cam
paign. It appeared from his testi
mony that he was in Great Falls at the
time of Wheeler's employment by
Campbell and trying to get to sell
stock for Campbell and was not sue
ceasful. It also developed that Wert
heimer was a friend of Jack Kearnes
j and Tex Richards, the fight promoters,

Washington, and that he went from
California to New York with Kearns
and others and was entertained by
Rickards and later event to the De
