}t the shortest possible answers to the
questions asked. When it came to de
ecrlbtng the visit in Halsey's Offlce.
howex'er. on the day the bribe was paid
Boxton's nervousness asserted itself.
He answered distinctly, but his face
\u25a0was flushed, he twisted uneasily in. his
oh air, his eyes were averted, time after
Time and his hands were tightly
Heney was merciless in his question
ing of the witness, and Boxton, earning
hJs own immunity from legal prosecu
tion by showing his true character in
all Its hideous nakedness and by his
words dooming others to. prison that
he may go free, tinderwent a torture
that probably the felon's term he has
thus evaded would not equal. Several
times he turned - appeallngly toward
Heney with the ghastly simulation of a
pmtle on his countenance, as though
to beg for a speedy ending of the pub
lic Inquisition, but Heney's stern man
ner never relaxed, nor did he answer
the attempted smiles.
During the interval between his con
fession and the adjournment of court,
while he was answering the first
questions put to him on croBS exam
ination, Boxton regained something of
his former composure,' and when'he left
the stand to hurry away In an auto-,
mobile to the headquarters of the
board of supervisors to preside over Its
»»p«cial session, much of his confident
bearing had returned. No hands were
outstretched to greet him as he passed
through the crowded courtroom and
30 \u25a0words of sympathy came to his ears
as he whirled away from the temple.
The cross examination was not fin
ished yesterday afternoon, and Boxton
will resume the stand this morning.
With the blockade of technicalities
which he had established "Wednesday
successfully surmounted by Heney dur
ing the morning session yesterday,
Delmas was forced to submit to the
direct examination of Boxton, but he
did so only after many objections,
arguments and wordy clashes with
Heney, and every statement made by
Boxton went into the record coupled
with an exception taken In behalf of
the defendant. Several impatient In
quiries from the office of the super-
visors as to when Boxton would be dlsr
missed from the stand, and the recom
mendation of District Attorney Lang
don that the witness be allowed to keep
ltls appointment there, finally led to
his being excused at 4:30 o'clock, and
court was adjourned until this morning:.
Following Boxton's cross* examina
tion today President Henry T. Scott,
Director Frank G. Drum and former
Auditor E. J. Zlmmer of the Pacific
telephone company will be called to the
witness stand In the order named.
Scott's testimony will have to do with
his own election as head of the com
pany, and will be relied upon to estab
lish the fact that at all the times dur
ing- which the Home telephone fran
chise matter was before the board of
supervisors the complete control of the
Pacific company's affairs was vested In
lx>uis Glass. Drum is expected to tell
of , the renting of the rooms In the Mills
building, in which. It is asserted by the
prosecution, most of the bribe money
was paid. Zirnmer will be the most
important witness, next to Boxton, of
any which the state will produce, for
it is expected to show through him that
sums aggregating more than $50,000
were given to Halsey at. the express
command of Glass, and that no account
was ever kept of such disbursements
in the regular books ol the company.
Delmas' tactics of obstruction, which
served to prevent any essential
progress in the case "Wednesday, \u25a0were
overcome at,.a single bound by . Heney
when the case opened yesterday morn
ing. Finding that his opponent had
cleared an opening in the mass of tech
nical difficulties with which he had
clogged the way to the establishment
of preliminary records, Delmas changed
his methods of procedure, stipulated
concerning the completion of the rec
ord and confined his subsequent objec
tions to the evidence proper as It was
developed. ..: ;: 1
.William Thomas, senior member of
the law firm of Thomas, Gerstle, Frick
& Beedy, proved the key to the situa
tion for Heney. He was placed on the
witness 'stand and supplied the sub
stance of the original application of
the Home telephone . company for a
franchise, which the state had made
an ineffectual attempt to obtain
through Clerk John H. Ryan of the
board of supervisors. In answering the
preliminary questions Thomas said that
he was admitted to practice as an at
torney just 30 years ago yesterday, but
the method of celebration of the anni
versary did not appear to give him
great pleasure.
\u0084 Thomas, who had drawn the original
application for the Home telephone
company, established its contents by
reading a copy which had been made
of it' for an application in the. town, of
Berkeley, inserting the necessary
changes as he read. In a like manner
the telephone ordinance as finally
passed was read into the record and
the papers were filed as an exhibit.
"To the honorable the board of su
pervisors." read Thomas in beginning

the application, and then in an aside he'
interjected: •
"That's the way It was addressed, but
I don't know, that I'd begin It that way
if I. had to do it over again." '
Thomas testified further that he ap
peared before the board of supervisors
while the application was pending in
1905, and that Boston was present.
This was entered over Delmas' objec
tion and after a long argument. Heney
Once referred to Delmas during this
argument as "the illustrious attorney,"
to which Delmas returned the -quick
and unexpected response:
"I'm not illustrious — only a very
humble member of the bar."
Clerk Ryan was recalled, but was
dismissed after saying -that he had
not attended the meetings of. the pub
lic utilities committee of the boar J
of supervisors, and it was at this point
that Delmas offered 'to ; shorten ; pro
ceedings by stipulation concerning the
publication of the various advertise
ments and notices of sale in the ofß
icial organs. The offer was accepted;
the stipulation' was drawn during the
noon recess and read Into the record
immediately after court reconvened
by Assistant District Attorney O'Gara.
"Call Dr. Boxtbh," commanded
Heney. '
| . Boxton was absent. In ; attendance at
the meeting, of the board of super
visors. Prank. G. Drum, called next,
also waa missing. .Then Heney se
lected B. ; J. \ Zlmmer . and was " ready; to
go ahead, when Judge La wlor , ob
jected to the piecemeal method' of put
ting.; !n the case and ordered I that
Boxton b« produced. It; took' ls min
utes for Boxton to reach , the court,
but . he .was sworn and ' placed -on * the
stand as soon as he appeared. During
the giving of Boxton's testimony Del
mas interposed .objections virtually to
every question asked, * and the record
was punctuated with his invariable
form of exception, "and the point Is
A long argued objection by Delmas
was that any ' conversations 'between
Boxton and Halsey, or any other third
person, were irrevelant and imma
terial, and that only conversations to
which Glass was a party could be In
troduced in evidence. Heney assert
ed that circumstantial evidence was
proper in establishing intent, ajid that
he purposed connecting Glass with the
substance of all such conversations by
subsequent testimony. Delmas' ob
jection was overruled and his. excep
tion was made applicable to all testi
mony of this nature given by the wit
ness. »
The preliminary objections disposed
of, Heney began the examination

A. — l'es, sir.
Heney made a fruitless .'effort to
draw from the witness a statement of
the substance of the. conversation be
tween himself and regarding
the standing. of the other members of
the board. Boxton either could not
or would not understand what Heney
was trying to , get act. and the latter
became irritated, especially- as Delmas
insisted on objecting to every ques
tion. Heney finally, accused Delmas of
Interfering with the witness and "a
lively tilt ensued, during which Del
mas referred sarcastically to Heney's
display of heat. \u25a0
"Thank God I haven't ice water In'
my veins. I'm Irish." retorted Heney.
• "Yes, and part Dutch, j too, I've, been
Informed," said Delmas.
"It seems you're ';neither," answered
'Heney. . \u0084 ',;*. J -

Delmas opened the cross examination
by going over, the ground covered by
Heney concerning activity in the
board^ of super-v'lsors; relative: to the
petition 'for a" franchise. He brought
out no new -points of significance, 'but
Heney entered -several "objections.^ One
of these he withdrew- a moment-after
making it,' saying that at Assistant.Dis
trict Attorney^O'Gara's suggestion -he
feared it might be error.' . v-.
"I rather believe the true motive: of
"your withdrawing ; the objection is that |
you ' knew it would be error,; and I no- j
tlced your nodiand: wink," responded
Delmas. .' ', < \u25a0\u25a0 .' •',:
"You'll oblige me not to question ;my:

"That is Immaterial. I haven't ques
tioned : your motive." . '
"Yes you' have, : sir. ; Perhaps——" -

tion to proceed,", said \ Judge; Lawlor,

some weight." " " r v "1 ' ' '. :
The storm passed and the examina
tion proceeded. , V
"Did not the board understand that
many of these , other applications | for
franchises, which were filed, had some
sort of a blackmailing scheme behind
them?" suggested Delmas.' :- /
; "We always understood that the pro
moters advanced' propositions ;• for ; the
purpose of selling. them out afterward,",
admitted "Boxtbn. '
; The examination continued a short
time longer, covering the time that the
old board was in power, and then* the
request that Boxton be allowed to dis
continue ;,hls i testimony Was renewed.'

than • that the government become ; a
small stockholder in, some of therV large
railroads of the. country, with a vie\y
to having a, representative/ placed Jon

cess the government would .1 become
thoroughly informed as to the /inside

might desire to make. i \
. If made at all; the recommendation of
the president will be that congress pro

of a : small numberfof /shares of i stock
in j certain railroads 'that "may,,; be

Our Large Department Stores
Every Available Clerk and Salesman Was Busy— Even Help
from the Wholesale Department Was Called
Upon to Wait on Customers
And No Wonder When You Take Kohler & Chase Quality
Into Consideration, at an Actual Saving of $75
to $200 on Pianos or Player Pianos
It is not the low prices alone in thlß
Srreat sacrifice sale of pianos to which
we particularly call your attention, but
the instruments themselves. * every one
of; which will stand the test of critical
examination ~ and j comparison. I ~ Our
"easy pay plan" makes buying like or-
dinary shoplng:— and you pay "a little
now; and a little each month — ;in small
sums you hardly miss, and at sacrifice
sale prices the'amount.of your indebt-
edness is so small In comparison with
regular prices the piano will soon be
paid for without feeling the cost.
Others are furnishing their homes with
pianos and player pianos at this sac-
rifice sale and saving from $75 to $200.
according to the instrument selected.
Why "not you? ' "We know ther6 ' are
hundreds of families In San Francisco
who are in need of pianos— that if they
come here ; during this sacrifice .sale
will arrange in some way to take ad -
vantage of . the opportunity to \u25a0_,' save
enough In the purchase of an Instru-
ment to educate their family fn mualc.
There is nothing difficult about buying
a piano or a player, piano "here, ex-
cept coming. Will you come today be-
fore some one else secures. Just, the
bargain you've been looking for?
We will not quote each bargain in
detail, ,buf as- an example of how the
