One namo had been erasod or blacked out before the pamphlet wa.s sold. Mr. .Seott made ef t'ort after effort to brlng into evldence that it was tlio name of Pollce Com mlssloner Mannlng. "Was not that name that of Mannlng, and was lt not erasod at thc requcst or b.v the dlrectlon of Marshall Atklnson?" he asked, and Mr. Meredith objected promptly nnd was sustained. Alr.

"Was not tlie name of Mannlng marked out at tho request 0f Atklnson under the hope that Mannlng would not further opposo the granting of a new llcense to the Park Hotel?" met with another objectlon, whlch was sus? tained. Mr. .Meredith took tho wltness in hand, and In nnswer to hl3 questlons Yoder asserted that he had not been actuated by malice in his publlcatlons. G.
