Chicago, Mar 22. Testimony that
the books of Allert C. Frost and com
pany had been changed while they
were in the hands of a receiver, to
day halted the trial against Mr Frost
and his four associates charged with
Alaskan land frauds, and directed the
Inquiry into other channels: In the
words of Judge Landis. before whom
the trial is being conducted. 'the
question of the United States against
Mr. Frost and the other defendants
is a small offense compared with the
chr.rce just made."
When A. C. Frost and company
failed three years ago. George M
Seward, one of the defendants in the
land fraud charges, was appointed
receiver and the hooks were turned
over to him
A C Frost and eompan. a corpor
ation, is distinct from Mr Frost s in
terests In the Chicago and Milwau
kee electric railroad and the Alaskan
Central. On examination by D. B
Townsend, special asistant nttorney
general, W. F. Wandtkc. a bookkeep- ,
er for Frost, testified thai since the
hooks had been turned over to Mr
Seward as receiver, certain names 1
had been erased.
Among the names which had been
erased was that of Richard A Ballin-
per, former Fnlted States land com- i
mlsgioner and secretary of the In
terior Judge Lanrils questioned the1
witness himself
"At whose direction did yu erase
the name of Mr. Balllnger? " asked
the judge
"At the request of Mr Seward and i
Mr FroBt."
Judge Landis ordered the bailiff to
summon several Fnited States dep
aty marshals. They appeared a mo- j
menl later and arrayed themselves i
befcre the door of the courtroom
The jury was excused and Mr Se- :
ward was called before the bench.
The depot v marshals entered
"Go to Mr. Frost's office." said the,
nidge, "and seek out and brine into j
rourt every hook of Mr Frost's that

receiver "
Attomev for the defense objected
to the proceedings
"Your honor has no right to give
such an order, ' protested Amor R.
Marston. "This issue Is entlreK
aside from the trial of Mr Frost and j
his Assistants for land fraud? We
haven't been called in here to defend j
this case."
"Go get the books" what arc you
waiting for" ordered Judge Landla,

New York. March 22 Trading was
dull throughout the four days of bus-
iness on the stock exchange this j
week. Movements of the standard
stocks were narrow, with a heavy,
dragging tendency which resulted in
tin establishment of many new loan
records for the protracted decline. I
Wildest fluctuations occurred among
the specialties, which suffered from
the effect of further liquidation.
Stocks recently listed were the
heaviest losers, owing to dlscrlmlna
tlon against this class of securities as
New England railway stocks also
were hard hit by liquidation due to
poor statements of earnings recently
and talk of ponslble dividend reduc
tions. The KOld export movement contin
ued and money rates, which had
shown a allghtl) easier tendency ear
lier In the week, stiffened again on
il ye of the three-day holiday.
