lEXPLODES ONE' STORY

! Heney Shows Mclney From
Mint Was Not to Pay
- \u25a0 .-
The smoldering fires of the .Ford
trial broke into flame yesterday af ter
\u25a0noon, when the prosecution called
•William M. Abbott to the stand.
iAbbott who is assistant general coun
sel of the United Railroads, took the
witness chair amid the protests of the
Attorneys for the defense, and an ar
<gtitment followed which consumed the
of the session. The argu
ment which the action of the prosecu
tion precipitated led to heated clashes
between Heney and Attorney Lewis
F. Byington of the .defense. Heney;
Sung in Byington"s fsce his failure to \
prosecute Abe Ruef -while district at- j
torney, and Byinjrton. retorted with
spirit that he defied any Tna # n to ftnd ;
a. flemish on his reqord. Judge Lawlor 1
calmed the rising: storm and announced
that he wouM decide today \u25a0whether;
Abbott could refuse to testify on the:
grounds* that 'he had been Indicted "with
Ford.
The other . sensation of the day oe- <
curred ivhen the prosecution exploded !
the* remarkable theory which the de- :
fense attempted to set- up. to the effect
that the $200,000 withdrawn from the
mint by Ford had been shipped baj?k?jLo
Kew Tork'to pay Iturrest onth? bptds
of the United Railroads.' With a' few.
well directed questions Heney shovreij
chat the interest on the bonds had
cever been paid in currency and that
the-. 5200,000 which passed Into Ford's
possession was neyer uted for that pur
pose. '
ABBOTT REFUSES TO TESTIFY
Xt was clear at the outset that the ;
prosecution had called Abbott with no
expectation that he would testify. The
prosecution contended that the fact
that Abbott had heen Indicted did not
In. Itself disqualify him as a. witness. '
&eney arsrued. that a* Abbott •was riot '
c defendant in the tase - at \u25a0 i»=sue he;
CouJd "«ritb all propriety be called as a
ip-itneM. The object, of couirseJ was to
force Abbott to admit that his refusal
to testify \u25a0was based on the irround*
th&t b« might Incriminate himself. Had
fee uxg«d this plea that would have
peea the end of the matter. -The de
ibeasa receynlred the danger of *ucli
ts admission and urjzed desperately the
tiis.t Abbott could refuee to an
frwer clmply 'on the: grounds that he
t*.d beea Inflicted on a charge 'identical
trltb thtt assJnrt Ford.
| Abbott answered the first questions
$jfiilreseed to him, which had merely to
td with hl» name and occupation,
tlesey then aEked:
! "T>ld you, cm the tßth diy of May,
ISO 6, ct> "with Tir»y L. Ford, to the
telted States mintr . '
1 22&rl Hogers was on his feet in an
fcisiaxt
\ -I adrise Mr. Abbott, not to an-"
fyer;" be said- * •
(•ffZ refuse to answer,**, repeated Ab
\itt-
•On wbat arounds?" inquired Eeney.
- "Vn advice of counsel," snswertd Ab
tett. , ,
•TThat is not sufficient, your honor,"
laid H«ney, addressing Judge La.wlor.
The court then called on both side*
md a, torrid debate ensued.
"TTe have been denounced by the de-
for not calling Abe Ruef to the
Jtand,** said Heney, "and he was ln
ticted, together with Abbott and Ford,
Vbe calling of Abbott lsidenticaJ."
V MUST GIVE TRUE REASON
Reney then cited the «Stice case in
kt;ch the supreme court of California!
leH thst In an action 'where two men
Ud>«en. separately indloteH for a sim-;
tar Vffense. one could be called ; as \
trltntW against the other, each, Jof
teurse^ reserving his constitutional
{Ight to.refuse to answer on the ground
he inlght incriminate himself. The
tendudin^ paragraph of this decision
4ays that \n a ease where the two men
kad been jointly ' Indicted "it would
weem** that \he same rule would 'apply.'
The defenje cited a Michigan deci
lion which contradicted the California
ruling. Judge Lawlor\ reserved-; his
tecision until mdajvbut; intimated that
ke would follotr »the Ca.ilfornla. prece
lent. This wlll\ force Abbott to shift
vis position and^fveas-a reason for
kis refusal to answer ar admission
2iat he might incriminate himself. •
This admission Is. all' that the prose-.

.NEW YORK, 0ct.. 30.— F0r.-, the "first
time in- ten" days ; of extreme tension in
-Wall; street there were ' material evi
dences of relief "today: While bankers
had repeatedly /said the 'outlook was
brighter "during this thefe
"were no developments which 'eased \the
minds of k those who needed -m,oriey, the
\u25a0life of Wall street business, in" addition,
there, were distrust and a great- de
mand for" funds by institutions and per
sons who wished to be' prepared
any emergency/ This tension eased to
day ' and'. the;. lmmediate result, was a
sharp rebound in the security market.
/The main relief came f com' within
the market, where flrstwas noticed an
absence of ;the "heavy liquidation forced
upon, certain brokers and 'others .* who
had 5 been borrowing money. :'- There was
-also: a' slightly better, condition, among
the banks^;,The^drain by:.the publfcihad
