The purpnse. of the teatlmony ln troduced was to show that Angle. both In hls own namo a'nd that "f tho Dry Fork Dlstllllng Company. and in some fnstancea under fk-tltious nnmes, had shlpped to Danvllle many barrels of splrlts which were not rerorded on the daily rcport shec.. and sworn statcments made to tho government. Tho conclusion drawn from tliis by the government Is thnt on the whls? key which it is nllegod he falled to record "Uncle Sahv" waa defrnuded out of hls assesament of $1.10 per gallon. This line of examlnatlon, lt is ex pected. will contlnue for sevoral days. and. according to the clnlm made by the government, beforf. the trlal ends i: will be shown that Mr. Angle and the company which he headed either overlooked or falled to pay the reve nue tax on hundreds of gallons of whlskey. .

The cheeks and records of Mr. Murphy. according to the calcula tlon of government experts, show that - Mayberry <fc Murphy purchnsed during the past severol years 151 barrels of splrlts from the Dry Fork Company, whlle records of the company show thls to be eighty-nlne barrels in ex cess of the amount reported to the govornment. The conclusion from thls is that Uncle Sam was defrauded oul of about $5,00n from the salcs to May berry & Murphy. Tclltnlc Frelght Rllla.

But Just as ho was onterlng Frank A. Munsey on the Business and Political Situation "1N the May Number of Munsey's Magazine, Mr. Munsey has an article on the panic and the causesthat brought ___ it about. He says some things and says them straight ??I from the shoulder. He hands it out good and hard to Wall Street and to the Grand Dukes who have been running things in this country with a high hand?running them as the Grand Dukes of Russia have run things over there. The title of the article is? There isn't money enough in the world today to do the world's work Mr. Munsey takes emphatic issue with Wall Street and the followers of Wall Street who hold the President responsible for the panic. It is not his pur pose in the discussion to acquit Mr. Roosevelt of blame, but rather to get at the facts, as the facts are nqcessary to intelligent progress in the recovery of our business activities. "If these facts," Mr. Munsey says, "acquit the President, he is, as a matter of common hon esty, entitled to the acquittal." What we want to know, and should know, is the truth. And the basic purpose with Mr. Mun? sey has been to lay bare the truth. Mr. Munsey in this article clears away a vast amount of the distorted and awfully befogged ideas about this financial crash. The article is clear, convincing, forceful. It is not a dry, ponder ous handling of the subject, but is swift and dramatic in ex pression, with all the sweep and picturesqueness of a novel. You cannot afford to miss reading it. No one who has any interest in the vital things of the day can afford to miss reading it.

Bmti th? ?j?^ Klnil You Hait Always BflunJrt The Bell Telephone? The "Busy" Report We have had people tell us that operators report tel? phones "Busy" ?when the telephone is not actually in use when called for. In every such. case we have been able to convince the coniplainant by positive evidence that such. an occurence is not possible as a matter of practice. "We have not simply assumed that such a thing did not occur, but we have investigated cases of the kind many timcs. We have proved conclusively that the telephone waa in use by a aervant or a neighbor without the knowledge of the sub scriber, that the line waa out of order or that the receiver had been left off the hook. It is easrier for the operator to test the line th,an to make a "Busy" report without testing. The supervision is so close and coustant that an operator cngaged in such a prac? tice would soon be detected. Then too, our operators take a pride in their work and have absolutcly no object for report ing a line "Busy" without first making the proper test. Oftentimes when you call a store or other businesa place and receive a ".Busy" report, the telephone is being used by Bome one other than the subscriber or his employes. Thisv is one of the resulta of penuitting the telephone to be pro miscuously used, and is sometbing we cannot oontrol, If you should receive a "Busy" report on a station that you tbink is not in use, do not argue the matter out with the operator. Report it to the proper department and we will make an honest investigation and a truthful report, Poor service hurts us worse than it does you. We are here to give good service and there are many ways in which you can help us.
