A. Pdid not.

A. No.
A. I wasn't.
A. Yes, sir.
A. I was not.

Mr. Tracy R. Bangs: The gentleman, evidently, has gotten up with
another grouch.
Mr. George A. Bangs: We will wait until this effervescence has blown
off and somewhat subsided and then continue our conversation. On these
three incidents you did not see any indication that Judge Cpwan was
under the influence of intoxicating liquor?
Q. Taking up the incident at the stock yards, you say you were at
torney for Mr. Carroll in the matter of this horse sale?
A. Mr. Carroll and Mr.. Hubbard together.
Q. The matter in which you were engaged by them was connected with
the sale itself?
A. Yes, nothing connected with Judge Cowan.
Q. What I want to get clear in my mind is what your business there
was, in the performance of your duty as attorney employed by Carroll and
A. No, that is not correct, I was looking after their property, and at
the same time I wanted to buy a pony for my boy.
Q. Did you make any effort to buy the pony for the boy any other time
than at the time you did?
Q. How long did it take to make that effort?
A. I should judge about three minutes.
Q. During the time you were there did you devote any more time to the
purchase of the pony?
Q. Except these three minutes what detained you?
Q. You went there when?
A. 2 o'clock.
Q. When did you leave?
A. Good companyj. Mr. Kennedy and Mr. Burdick, we were bilking
Q. What portion of the time was devoted to your attorney business for
Mr. Carroll?
A. About 15 or 20 minutes after we got through with the sale checking
over with the clerk.
A. I should judge between and half past 7.
Q. You were there between 4 and 5 hours?
A. Yes.
Q. Three minutes of that time was devoted to the pony business, and
fifteen or twenty to Mr. Carroll's business and the balance to good
A. Yes, there was a lot of it there too.
Q. You have been a judge haven't you?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Tried cases?
A. A good many.
Q. You have heard witnesses interject remarks like this?
A. Yes, also attorneys.
Q. How many days?
A. Two.
Q. Until how late?
Q. Were you there on any day connected with business for Mr. Carroll
other than the day you speak of?
Q. Do you know of your own knowledge the sale extended over more
than one diy?
A. Of my own knowledge I don't know, from the records that Mr. Car
roll presented to me I do know.
Q. Did the sale extend over one day?
Q. Was this day that you were there the first day or the second day?
A. It was the second day, the last day of the sale.
A. I can't say.
A. I do not.
Q. When was the day that the horses had been bought by Mr. Cowan?
Q. You don't know whether that was the same day or not?
Q. Were you at the sale any other time than this particular day?
Q. So that the only time you were at the sale was on .he afternoon of
the second day?
A. This is my recollection, I am sure of it, in fact, it was the after
noon of the second day.
Q. Did you sec Judge Cowan on the day preceding?
A. I wasn't in town that day.
A. I have not.
Q. As to what his condition was on that day you have no knowledge
or information?
Q. Did you see him later on the evening of the second day?
A. I spent the evening with he and Mr. Carroll and Mr. Hubbard
trying to straighten out this car load of horses.
A. I presume 10 or 11 o'clock perhaps.
Q. Do you know whether Judge Cowan returned to Devils Lake?
A. I saw him the next morning and tried to get the matter straightened
out for him, and when we couldn't I told him about a bunch of good
horses that Mr. Rice had obtained and he had better see Rice and get them.
1 think that was about 10 or 11 o'clock the next morning.
Q. During the time you saw Judge Cowan in Minot did you see him
or know of his taking any intoxicating liquor whatever on that occasion
or that trip?
A. Well, sir, I can't say whether I did or not.
Q. On this night when Carroll and Hubbard were there did they have
drink at the room whrre you were?
A. No, sir, they may have drank before I got there or after I left
Q. Their actions and conduct gave no indications that they had been
A. Yes, sir.
A. Yes, sir.
A. No.
A. No, sir.
A. No, sir.
A. Yes, I have.
Q. Frequently?
A. No, I don't remember.
Q. Don't recall it?
A. No.
A. Not a bit. Not the slightest unless the fact that Mr. Cowan was very
sore about this horse deal would be an indication. He used some pretty
strong language to Mr. Carroll and Mr. Hubbard both about mixing up
this car load of horses with the balance of the bunch.
Q. They had agreed prior to that time to see him in tiie afternoon?
Q. Apparently lie had just discovered the fact that there had been a
shift in-the horses at the time that you saw him?
A. It appeared to me that he had just discovered it because 1 found
him looking for sonic grey mares.
Q. It was a fresh incident in his mind?
A. It apparently was.
Q. When you left the stock yards did you go home?
A. I went home.
Q. And then went to the hotel after supper?
Q. And there were the same gentlemen?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. You remained there until 10 or 11 o'clock?
Q. Not later than that?
A. It might have been.
Q. Later than midnight?
A. I stayed there for two or three hours and I imagine it would be 10
or 11 o'clock.
A. It might have been after twelve. I don't remember.
Q. During the entire period that Judge Cowan was in Minot you do not
remember of observing him, you did not see him take a drink or see any
indications in his conduct or actions of having drank intoxicating liquors?
A. You have asked a question that I can't answer by yes or no, I
wouldn't say I didn't see him take a drink because I don't remember, but I
didn't see any indications of his having indulged in intoxicating liquors.
I may have seen him take a drink, I may have taken one with him but I
don't remember.
Q. Taking up the Kelso incident your recollection in that agrees with
Mr. Kelso as to the time when the incident occurred as being sometime
along three or four o'clock in the afternoon when Kelso was in the office?.
A. I fixed that by the fact that he did not have time to finish up the
beer and get to the train.
Q. There is no doubt but that it took place in the afternoon?
A. Not a bit of question about it.
A. I have.
Q. The reason I asked the question was their cross examination seemed
to indicate that it occurred earlier in the day.
A. There is no question about it because Judge Murray came up to
the office and said, boys you can't stop any longer if you want to go on
this train because it is nearly train time.
Q. Have you talked with Judge Murray concerning the incident re
Q. Was there some dispute between yourself and Judge Murray as to
what you drank?
A. Not a bit, but there was some dispute as to whether Judge Murray
got the beer.
Q. Is that practically, is that all the talk there was?
A. Yes, I thought Judge Murray went to his house and brought up
these six pints of beer and he tells me he didn't and he seems to think
it must have come from some other place, but I know someone brought
it there and that I didn't myself.
Q. It wasn't whiskey that was talked over between yourself and Judge
Q. The fact of whiskey being brought there wasn't discussed between
yourself and Judge Murray?
Q. Or whether Judge Cowan drank whiskey in Judge Murray's office?
Q. After they reached your office?
A. Yes, there was mention of that. Judge Murray told me he didn't
know whether this young fellow drank a little Scotch and soda in there
or whether Judge Cowan did that morning we talked that over last week
or week before last. Didn't know whether Cowan drank anything there,
but seemed to think someone drank a Scotch and soda.
Q. That is your collection of the conversation between yourself
and Judge Murray?
A. It is my absolute recollection of what the conversation was, be
cause it only happened last week.
Q. Well, did you see anything, Mr. Palda, in your office, that looked
like Mr. Cowan putting his hands on the shoulders of Mr. Kelso?
A. Why, I may have I don't remember. I paid no particular atten
tion to the incident. It was so frivolous I didn't notice it even. It may
have happened. He may have put his hands on his shoulders. He usually
does that with a young fellow. He did with me when I first got acquainted
with him.
Q. And with respect to the statement Mr. Kelso states that Judge
Cowan made to him at that time that were called to your attention, that
if he ever was called into his district he would get a fair deal from him,
or words to that effect?
A. I don't remember it, but it sounds like Judge Cowan's talk.
Q. You have heard Judge Cowan give to you assurances of a simi
lar nature, you mean?
A. Why, no. I know when I first came up there he said that to me:
"Young man, you needen't be afraid of this court. You will get a fair
show." That braced me up, too. I was scared to death when I first got
acquainted with bim.
Q. And did you ever bear him make that statement to others than
yourself and Mr. Kelso?
Mr. Tracy R. Bangs: You heard the question that he included Mr.
Kelso in that, did you Mr. Palda?
A. I didn't notice the question particularly. I don't remember him
saying that to Mr. Kelso, but he may have said it. It sounded like Judge
Cowan to me, those words, when I read the record.
