FIREWORKS (Continued from Pas© 1.) he would not answer questions of this nature, characterizing them as "rot." Attorney Rex said he did not intend to permit anybody to charge him with violating his duty as an attorney. Collins half raised from his chair and reiterated his state ment that he had come there to show the board where to obtain evidence of fraud in this land sale, and that he had done that and did not pro pose to "be persecuted about finan cial transactions. Attorney McEnroe objected to cross-examination cover ing anything but the land frauds that had been alleged. "I have shown you where to get the testimony —now you go and get it," shouted Collins to the members of the board collectively. "I won't answer any question of this kind unless I get into court." And the governor with I some warmth intimated that an op portunity would be given Collins to get into court when the proper time came. Attorney Rex began a motion to the board based on Collins' refus al to answer his questions on cross examination, and just then the board adjourned at the noon hour. Mr. Rex's motion was subsequently with drawn. AFTERNOON SESSION. The afternoon session started with Attorney Rex asking Mr. McEnroe if his client was going to persist in not answering any more questions and was informed that such was the case. Mr. Rex then stated that he would introduce affidavits to show that the reason given by Mr. Collins for withdrawing his petition at the former hearing—that pressure had been brought to bear on his finan cial condition to which he was forced to accede—was untrue and not the real reason. Mr. Rex then produced papers showing that Mr. Collins had been the defendant in numerous law suits and that in each instance judg ment had been entered. This Mr. Rex stated, was offered to show that suits were being brought by other parties than Lord, Thompson and McCanna, who Mr. Collins claimed was endeavoring to use the fact that he owed the former parties money to pull him off with his petition for a hearing regarding the sale of sec tion 16. Mr. McEnroe asked if Rex knew whether or not any of the men tioned judgments had been paid, and the reply was that he understood that one in favor of Geo. Duis had been forced to settlement, and as to the others he had no information. There was neither any evidence as to the present condition of Mr. Col lins' financial condition known to the attorney. Here McEnroe and Rex indulged in a verbal duel which was interesting to the spectators, but of no particular value as far as the in vestigation under way was con cerned, riere Mr. Rex introduced about fifteen affidavits, which he stated were introduced for the pur of showing that Mr. Collins' reputation for veracity and truthful ness was not of the best. When he had introduced these papers, Mr. McEnroe then asked if there would be any papers shown to prove that the affidavits as to the reliability of the men who made the first ones of fered. Mr. Rex replied to this ques tion with some heat, stating that he had been practising law for some time and it was the first time a sug gestion of that kind had been made to him. David McCanna of Minneapolis, but formerly a resident of Cando and Towner county, was then called and sworn, and upon examination by Mr. Rex stated the facts as to the sale of the land in question. He stated that there had not been at any time any agreement between him and Lord or Thompson, and that the sale was conducted as any other land sale of school lands which he had attend ed, and he had been present at a good many of them. HeH. told in a dramatic manner of the sudden death of his friend Lempke at sale and of the events immediately following it An affidavit was offer ed from Senator Fountain L. Thomp son, in which he stated t::at he did not believe there was any fraud in connection with the land and that Collins in bringing up the case was not actuated by a desire to do any, good for the state or the school chil dren, but with a desire to work out a personal spite which lie held against the parties who wculd be most affected if there was a cancel lation of the sale. Mr. Thompson is at the present time in Texas, where he was called on account of his fail ing health. Another affidavit was read from C. J. Lord, who at the present time is travelling in Europe, and it contained practically the same matter as was read from Mr. Thomp* son's affidavit. The matter of what is known as the "Harry Thompson quarter'' was then brought up. The receipt for the money was brought from the land department and showed it was for $10 an acre and was made out on Oct. 31 of the year of the sale, hut Collins claims the date had been al tered from January 1.
