Attorney Del ma|^Attacks the Credibility of Mayor Boxton as a Witness in Trial of Louis Glass
Continued from Pajff*.!, Colnmn 6
pointnient by the board of super
visors and Boxtoivs sworn declar
ation of honest}- will niake a tell
ing argument for Attorney Del
mas when he attempts to vitiate
the effect of Boxton's charges by
showing that the sacredness of an oath
is nothing to such a man.'
The -defense did- not have thin gs all
Its'own Vay yesterday, however, for
Heney' scored strongly, despltV the fact
that countless objections prevented him
from bringing out the full force of the
testimony he. endeavored -to secure
from the officials of the telephone com
pany whom he placed on the- stand.
Hampered at ahnost'ev«ry -tarn, he still
succeeded in practically completing a
circumstantial case, ! against Glass,
svhich lacks but certain verification of
details, and he has yet to present the
most important of the state's wit
nesses. ' '
The responsibility of Glass for all
the a<HB of Theodore V. Halsey was cs
tahllshod by thP curtailed testimony
of the defendant's own fellow officials
of the Pad fir telephone and telegraph
company, who were forced to admit
that Glass was the acting head of the
company at the time- of the- bribery,
and that he alone could order any pay
ment of funds through Halseys hands.
Fj. X.' Zimmer, former auditor of the
ompany. has not yet been called, but
Ins testimony as given before-the *rand
jury is directly concerned witli the
tiirn'ln'g over large amounts of currency
to Hslpey at Glass* orders, and this,
vrith the" completion of the testimony
of the' other officials of the company. 1
will 'conclude the' essential features of
the state's case as outlined in Heney'tr
opening address. President Henry T.
Scott, Directors Homer S. King and
Frank G. Drum were the officials of the
company examined yesterday. ';
Several Utn^s" during the course of
his cross examination, which- occupied
all of the morning and most of the
afternoon session of the court. Box
ton's feelings exhibited themselves and
the tone of his voice, as well as his
words, indicated his realization of his
own debasement. In speaking of his
selection as mayor he quoted Gallagher
es urging him to accept- the. "honor/*
end the .inflection he put upon the word
meant volumes. Again in a response*
to* a question, as to his understanding..
of the length of his term of office as
chief execuUve._,he^ answered -. .q^uietb^
and almost sadly:'
"They promised after, ft few days to
select some honest citizen for the
lon ton was recalled to the stand by
l.r.as as soon as court opened at : ,l| %

<J," — When was tbe proposition made to yoa?
A.— -It was made by Langdon and Hesey the
first, night 81 liiy's bouse.
Deimas demanded a' copy,, of the im
munity contract, but Boxton declared
that Rudolph Spreckels had retained
the copy and Dcltnas at once demanded
that he be summoned. Heney offered
to produce, the contract and after some j
discussion a newspaper clipping, "con-;
tattling the substance of the agreement^
which granted Immunity from prosecu
tion so long as Boxton answered all
demands for his testimony,- was read
into the ; record, subject to rcvisloV
when the original should \be brought
into court. Deimas then turned to the
act] en brought by Langdon last October \u25a0
to prevent Rucf from stealing; the dis- :
trict attorneys office, and Boxton's affi
davit in answer to the original suit
was read into tbe record. It was in
this affidavit thp.i Boxton, swore to I the
fact- that, he bad. never . committed
a felony. On Heney's demand the or
iginal complaint.was also read and both
papers were filed as exhibits.
"A few days ago you were elected by
. the ; board of supervisors, were you
not?" questioned Deimas, branching
into' a new line of; inquiry.
* "Yes, ' sir," responded ' Boxton.
s'Tou were elected 1 mayor of this
- "Yes, but through no fault of mine.
F didn't want It, but somebody had to
act.? Wtt/B^f^VfßKKUßSt^ißm
"Who put.yoti in? Intact, .wasn't, lt"
this prosecution?"^' 7 • \
"No doubt about it— " began. Boxton,
when,He6ey interrupted, declaring that
such a statement included him and. that
as he had nothing to do with it he
didn't* want to be involved; Theanswer
was : ruled out. *-.^^^^^^^^^^^^i
, Deimas spent 'the remainder of the
forenodn session inquiring Into' the de-"
tails of" Boston's election to the office
of mayor.' The: witness told how, the
selection wag maiift without his!knowl
edge; how his £ bonds had' been pro
cured for'hlm by Langdon without ex
pense ,'to himself;; how. he was whirled
about' the 'city in I^angdbn's* automo
bile; how the :old-Sehmitz: old-Sehmitz -office had
been and the furniture re
mbv'e'd :to rooms. In the clty^hall and
finally as to, his understanding of, the
length of, tiitio r durlng,whlchhe' was to
officiate as mayor. .. ; ; . ','
Homer. S. KJng.presldentiQf the Bank
of California and', a , director of | the' Pa
cific -telephone compahy,.;was the "first
witness placed on the stand 'I In the
afternoon.' King testified that former
President,. John 1.. Sabln of the tele
phone company 'died In October, 1905,
and that from then, until the election
of President Scott Glass was. vice presi
dent and .general manager.. and as sueh 1
would have'Vpower to expend money. '
The question as to. whether Glass
had this power In 1905 was objected to
by Deimas, and Heney" declared he j
could not go on. with,-' the witness- until j
he had laid a. foundation for tfil* line
of testimony... King was excused .until
Monday morning. • but- not'.untll;; after
he > had . entered a -strenuous objection.
"He had planned to leave the city with
his family last night for an extended
trip and insisted that any other direc
tor could give the same testimony -he
could. Heney refused to dismiss him
entirely and Deimas would 'not con
sent' to allowing the" evidence to be.
taken -without further, foundation. -The
result was that King was ordered from
the stand under instruction* to return
Monday and left the courtroom 1 In*, a
rage. ; y) \u25a0\u25a0\u25a0 ' . .-' \u25a0.. vi
_ Boxton was recalled and asked a few
questions by \u25a0 Deimas -concerning his
conversations with Halsey in the Mills
building, but the examination did not
go further- than this into the details
of the story he told Thursday and he
was dismissed without redirect exami
nation by the state.
President Henry' T. Scott of the Pa
. cine , telephone company was the next
witness. Heney developed the fact that
Scott did not take up the active duties
of president until aftef the" fire In April,
1906. and that he did hotknow at -'the
time that the--' Home telephone fran
chise application ,r was "pending 1 .; He
said that he had hot signed any checks
for the company nor authorized Halsey
or any. one else to \u25a0. expend any money.
Tte 'admitted that Halsey is now onthe
payroll of. the .cp^npany . on . a:, pension
'per hiohth. Deimas' continued
objections to this line of questioning
led 1 Heney to make a statement of
what he Intended to prove, which
Deimas^at once assigned as miscon
duct, -i- "V
"I expect to show that after this deal
ilialsey^ivas pensioned and- sent tojthe
nal.d.^'HeneyX "m ' show
'that h^Stent ther«-."to work- for a conj-s
pany wjiich Olass^«ontrbls> and which
\u25a0this company has'; no. interest, In.
my pyrjjo^se further to ahow that "^he
was taketvout of the way so he wouldn't
have t6 pc a witness in court or before
the gr-aiid-'Jury, and that : he left here In
disguise. 1 : I'll also'-shoW- the relation
ship between him and Glass— -all of
which is good circumstantial evidence."
Unable, to secure all the testimony
he wis&Sd^'che'y: finally was. iforced to
allow tttfiwllfikis'to go. with the un
derstarfdTfilfttirra.t'.he. is to be -returned
to the stand Monday afternbon. "\u25a0 , \u25a0\u25a0

himself under": lndictment joiVai charge
of • bribing member? of the^board ,of
supervisors InVtanpectioh with the gas
rate ordinance^osiis next on the stand.
but proved an witness and ]
In several particulars went, back on the
testimony he .gave/ before the \ grand
jury. He declared' total Ignorance of
Halsey's affairs and relations to the
company, except that he described Hal
sey's visit to' him to secure offices in
the Mills building;. In this connection
he*' coujd : only remember "one' reason
advanced by Halsey for wishing to se
"cor^ fhe^rbdms", 'which was that ithere
was no room in the telephone building.
. j "Didn't -be" say' to you at that time,"
queried Heney, "that he didn't want it
to come out and that he wanted a plac*
where those people could come and
see him?*' . »
Si Drtjm'- refused-'-' to answer this quea
tlon affirmatively, although he had
;tnad«;-this -statement., himself when be
fore the grand Jury. He said yester
day- that h#>- couldn't remember. When
shown thfe transcript -of the testimony
taken before tbe grand jury he said:
•-••<- "If I should see that testimony
without being told what It is I should
say, If wasn't mine." " .
On cross examination Deimas made
a point of Oie- fact that Drum .hid
never 'communicated with any member
Qt the^counßel for. the defense nor dis
cussed what -his testimony would' be
with any. person connected with the
defense.'"; ;" ", '.. \u25a0 .r. r
Drum, was dismissed and .court ad
journed'until 10 o'clock Monday morn-
Ing, as Judge Lawlor will be unable
to sit .today. He is jslanning to ar
range longer hours for next week and
may possibly decide to hold ? evening
sessions.' The jury will remain today
and tomorrow In the Fairmont, but
will be taken to\the.^ park or \u25a0 seme
other resort today for an airing.

July 12. — Officials of
the -judge advocate general's office said
today they did not recall any statute
covering : - the act of an individual wjio
might be detected making drawings "of
a fort or other government bulldinica
in a. military reservation. 'The officials
said, however, that such reservations
were subject to such regulations as
the secretary of war promulgated. Any
one \u25a0on a reservation, without ; the right
to be there, if found doing something
that the regulations forbid. Is liable to
ejectment or any other punishment pro
vided. ""\u25a0\u25a0
These observations were suggested
as . a resul t of the reported arrest ! of a
Japanese at Fort Rosecrans. California,
while engaged in, making drawings of
the defenses there.
Major Gatchell; has not yet reported
such an arrest to the war department
and the Japanese embassy officials say
that; they have no information regard

men for drawing plans of Fort Rpse
