MUST BE CONCLUDED TODAY. The Close of Erastus Wiman's Trial. The Defendant on the Stand in His Own Behalf. Ha Trie* to Hbow That the Alleged Forgeries Were Simply Orerdrefta. The Case to Go to tha Jury Xhla Afternoon. By tbe Associated Press. New York, June 14.—The testimony for the defense in the case of Wiman, on trial for forgery, was closed this after noon, and tbe caes is expected to go to the jury at the close of tomorrow's tea ■ion. The defendant himself was on the stand most of tbe time, and made many admissions under cross-examina tion of the repeated use of funds belong ing to B. G. Dun & Co. These were •ailed overdrafts by the witness, and be produced a letter written by himself to Dun January 14, 1893, in which letter Wiman explained bis financial condition at length, and informed Dun that if he had held 25 per cent of the profits in January, 1889, instead of 17 per cent, the additional increase to him would bave covered the overdrafts. It waa January 1, 1889, tbat the agreement be tween Dun, Wiman, King and Douglass was made, in accordance with which Mr. Wiman was to get 17 per cent of the yearly profits, instead of the 20 per cent he had hitherto received. The letter was introduced to show more clearly ibat Dun knew all of Wiinan's over drafta. General Tracey tried to show tbat Dun, by arresting Wiman, prevented a financial move on Wiman's part which would have helped to extricate him from bis difficulties. Jndge Ingrabam ruled out all tbe questions, saying they had no bearing on the alleged forged heck in tbe suit. Mr. Wellman then arose to cross-ex amine the witness. He began by get ting Wiman to say that be had been the braina of B. G. Dun & Co. "Why it it, then," said Mr. Wellman, "that of all tbe businesses in which you have been interested tbe business of B. G. Dun & Co. has been a success, while the others were total wrecks?" "Perhaps because I waa better suited to the mercantile business than to any other." Mr. Wellman's questions caused Wiman to brace up and retort with vigor. Mr. Wellman referred to tbe state ment of profits of K. G. Dan & Co. sub mitted by General Tracey earlier in the morning. Tbe statement showed that in 1885 the profits were $345,780. They increased steadily until in 1892 they were $525,000. The total from 1885 to 1892, inclusive, was $3,410,500. In reply to Mr. Wellman, tbe defend ant admitted several instances in which be had written and telegraphed to the firm's agents, urging quick remittances on one pretext or another, and then bad applied tbe money to his own use. Mr. Thurber, the well-known whole sale grocer; Robert K. Kimball, stock broker; F. 8. Gannon, superintendent Of tbe Staten Island Rapid Transit Co.; J. J. Withrow, president oi the indus trial institute oi Toronto, Canada, and Dennis Stafford of Staten Island, testi fied to Mr. Wimau'a high reputation for honesty and integrity, after which Gen eral Tracey Baid: "That is our case." Mr. Bullinger was then recalled by Mr. Wellman, who asked him, "Is it true tbat you were in the habit of loau ing money ?" "It was not," answered Mr. Bullinger. "Did you ever lend any money to Mr. Wiman?" "Only once," said he, "that is all."' "That is all," eaid Mr. Wellman tri umphantly. Mr. Dun was then called to the stand to tell tbe circumstances of tbe $45,000 vote and tbe $100,000. He asserted he knew nothing about these until they were called to his attention by his associates. Before this he thought Wimau's over draft amounted to 124,000. Mr. Dun admitted knowing that Wiman bad overdrawn his accounts for tbe Inst two or three years, but jever suspected that the amount in volved wan co large. Mr. Duu denied ihat the pros3culion waa prompted by t>cy feat of Wiman, aa intimated by Mr. lioardman in hia opening address to the jury. "When the time comeß to charge tbe Jury," Eaid Justice Ingrabam, "I shall tell them that Mr. Dun would not have done bis duty ai a citizen bad he not Aided iv the proeecution of Mr. Wiman." At this point court was adjourned until tomorrow. Judge Ingrabam Baid be should limit each aide to 90 minutes in their address to the jury. "The case muat go to the jury before Bight."

Upon the ar rival of a representative of the Chinese minister, Yung Yue, who is to accom pany the party, the ambassador and hia auit will proceed to the City of Mexico. Thia is expected to occur during tbe next 10 days. Tbe treaty in question was prepared by a San Francitco lawyer and has al ready been submitted to both powers. It ia now certain tbat the ratification of the treaty by both nations is only a matter of form, and within a short time it will be in full force and effect. It is understood tbat Lai Yung You, who will negotiate tbe treaty, will, upon ita ratification, receive the appointment oi mi mater to Mexico, and will nu.™ enter upon the duties of his uflj.ee, mak ing bis headqusrtera at the Mexican caoital. It was for this purpose tbat be has remained in this country since the arrival of bis successor, Cheung, tbe present consul-general at tbis port. The treaty provides tbat the Chinese residents of Mexico ehall have the right of becoming naturalized citizens, witb all tbe rights which belong to the na tive citizens. There will be no laws of registration or excluaion of Chinese laborers, but, on tbe contrary, tbe doors are to be thrown wide open and a cordial wel come extended to the Mongolians to come and go as their business or pleas ure may require. In all matters of commerce the Chi neae will be permitted to enjoy tbe same privileges granted to all other foreign nations; in fact, in all things they are to be treated alike. For tbe return of all these favors to be enjoyed by the Chinese who settle in Mexico, the Chinese government will extend the same privileges and courte sies to citizens of Mexico who may go to China or engage in commerce in that country. The treaty is liberal in every respect, and no favored nation could ask for more. It is reported that the adaption of tbe treaty will reault in a large exodus from San Francisco's Chinatown to Mexico, and tbat Chinese of this city and China are already organizing and preparing to take advantage of thoir opportunities in Mexico. There is talk of an Asiatic steamship line from Mexico. A FALSE ALA KM, Thousands Waiting to Sea a Negro Lynched.

Prominent Sngrsr Men and Finan- ciers on the Stand. The Kxemlaatlon ol tha Senator. Will Begin Today—How Mr. Searles Came to Talk to Sen ator Jonas. By the Associated Press, Washington, June 14.—The investi gating committee will begin to examine senators tomorrow. Every senator will be aaked whether he bought or sold sugar stock, furnished information con cerning tbe tariff legislation on sugar, or in any way was improperly influenced by the trest. Today Charles Coster of Drexel, Mor gan & Co,, testified he knew of no specu lation in stock by senators, or of any effort to influence legislation by tbe augar trust. Mr. Searles followed and gave the cir cumstances under which he met Senator Jones, and discussed with him the sugar schedule of the tariff bill. Mr. Searles told tbe committee the circumstances under which be met Sen ator Jones and discussed with him the sugar echedule of tbe tariff bill. t Mr. Searles' position was that at 2.' i cents as the price of 80 degree sugar, a tax of 1 cent a pound or 40 per cent, the pres ent rate, waa excessive. For refining sugar, be argued the tax should be 1.00 per 100, instead of 1.40. "Tbat ig true," quoted the senator, aa replying, "but our committee will not give more than 1.40 per 100. That can not be done. The committee will not tax refined augar above 1.40." "I said," continued tbe witness, "the only other thing to do is to begin with 80 degrees, and tax that augar at eight tenths of a cent. That will bring you 1.40 on refined sugar." Senator Jones replied: "Yea, but tbe Louisiana sugars will not take eight-tenths of a cent for 80 degrees augar. They want a cent. They bave put iv a peg at 80 degrees a cent per pound. Tbe committee have put another on refined at 1.40, and there we are." "Very well," I said; "if that is the case, you are simply guilty of putting before the senate a schedule which ia indefeniive according to your own ad missions, and it does net seem to me right tbat a great industry like the sugar refining industry should be put in any such position aa that." And with that the interview closed. Senator Lodge—Would you prefer the present schednle to a schedule which carried 40 per cent ad valorem on raw and 45 per cent ad valorem on refined ? Mr. Searles—l would prefer the 45 per cent. Senator Lindsay—lt is to the interest of the sugar refiners to bave this bill take effect at once in view of this fact, •r to postpone it until the first of Jan nary. Mr. Searles—My own pereonal view would be that there wonld be nothing gained by postponing it. I have always supposed tbat that concession of the first oi .1 annnr- -erne rev Uie benefit Ot ..Vie producers of thia country. Senator Allen—Yon may state briefly what difference in your judgment there ia between tbe McKinley act and the pending act as the senate proposes to amend it, or haa amended it, to tbe American Sugar Refining company. Which is tbe better act for you? Mr. Searlea—Tne McKinley bill, by far. Senator Allen —How much? Mr. Scarier. —I think one-half. I think tbe protection in the margin to tbe re finer in the proposed echedule is not over one-half of what it was in the Mc- Kinley bill. A COMPLETE JOB.

The Industrials are Tired and Do Not Want to Walk. Trouble Anticipated by the Railroad Offlelala—What the Armies are Doing at Other Points. By the Anoelated Press. Omaha, June 14, —At 2:30 tbe special train crowded witb 150 heavily armed deputies eped oat ef the Union depot, via the Union Pacific, for the scene ef tbe trouble with the 'Wealers. The deputies were armed with revolver!, shotguns sad rides, and thoroughly un derstood before that there might be fighting to be dene. Chief Deputy United States Marshal Coggeehall, who is acting marshal during the absence of Marshal White in California, impressed the men with the necessity of being cool and that no violence should be shown unless it was necessary. Mr. Coggeiball and Deputy Liddard have charge of the deputy marshals. It was said at the office of General Manager Dickinson thia morning that the 'Wealera would allow no one near them. They asserted tbat they could take care of themselves. It ia believed tbat tha reason for refusing to allow a stranger near them was to prevent spies from asaociating with them aud ascer taining their movements. The men were unanimous in their declaration that they would not walk east, and boldly asserted that they would capture a train and ride. There has been con siderable excitement about Union Pa cific headquarters, tbe government build ings and army headquarters. Superin tendent Nichols and Assistant General Solicitor Kelly of the Union Pacific were closeted with Jnstioe Brewer and Judge Dundy this afternoon. Tbe entire subject waa thoroughly discuesed. The men in charge are reticent, but each would acknowledge that he anticipated trouble, as tbe Common wealers were growing restless and des perate, and would as soon as possible make a break with a train for the eaat. If they five up peacefully there would be no difficulty, but if they make a re sistance a conflict might ensue. Just what will he done with the men if captured is not definitely known, or at least if it has been decided upon it has been kept secret. The piobabtltty is that tbe men will be brought to Omaha and placed in the colieeum until they could be brought before tbe United States court. Later telegrams from from Julesburg say the Commonwealers are divided in two factiens. One is composed of those inclined to be peaceful and the other of desperate men and the men who are determined to secure a train and come east at all hazards. Denver, June 14,—Herb George, a Coxeyite agitator, today eaid there were 2000 Commonwealers on their way to this city. Tne men are traveling in squads, most of tbe large bodies being on tbe road.
