VICTORY FOR DEFENSE DR.

When I say that I aS vised him about drinking I mean I merely stated my views on that sub ject. I thought it might be of help to Jiim if the views of others who thought slong different lines wore brought to his attention." • • Evidence Declared Improper . The evidence regarding the discus sions of Van Liew's character by other members of the faculty was opposed tjtrongly by the attorneys for the de ; Tense. ; • "This is very improper." said Attor ney Seymour. "Any official could be thfown out of office on this intangible and inchoate evidence. If thft other rnemhers of the faculty know of any thing to the detriment of Doctor Van C'.ew they should appear in person at rthlc board and give their testimony." • Seymour's objections -were overruled md Miller then was asked who were ihe members of the faculty who had liFcussed Doctor Van Liew. "I don't like to answer." he said. \u25a0:\u25a0\u25a0_ "I don't like to ask the question," " ..paid Webb. \u25a0- Miller smiled at the answer and was /.immediately called to task by Seymour. : V "You find tbie a laughing matter. • doctor?" said he caustically. • "The witness is not laughing," inter \u25a0\u25a0: posed Webb. ; \u25a0 "I tell you I saw him laughing," fair- j : ;.ly shouted Seymour. •= "Oh well — who were the members of :.. the faculty you heard -discussing Doctor : /,Van Liew's character?" • There was a moment's pause and \u25a0 |. amid an intense silence Doctor Miller i- replied that those whom he heard were .-Mrs. Miller, his wife, also a member of ../the faculty, and Miss Jones, a very close !. \u25a0-.friend. Statements Vague '; ' The attorneys for the defense went . : at the witness rough shod. v Their tone was scornful and their .<ruesrions were rurt and emphatically : ; to the point. On cross examination .Doctor Miller could not specify any • .particular instance at which he noticed the odor of liquor on the president's /..breath and the only definite occasion he : : - could remember seeing him drinking •'-was at his home, when he took a glass •. \u25a0'".\u25a0 o.f beer. \u25a0 -\u25a0':.-' .

Doctor Miller," \ rcontinued Seymour, "that the only oc '.lcasion you heard Doctor Van Liew ad ..-•yersely criticised was after you had an i : acrimonious debate with him at a meet . . :ing of the faculty and then by your • ."wife and Miss Jones?" >?: "The discussion was after that meet . ; ing," said the teacher. " \u25a0.'•* "Immediately afterward, in fact?" .•"".. •"". " "Why, yes. immediately afterward." := . 'And your. wife and Miss Jones were ••. : 'the only* members of the faculty wild so • diFcussed him?" >;. "I believe I also heard Doctor Stam > "per do the same." ;:.:"\u25a0• "Now, is it not true also that you \u25a0/.wrote recently to Doctor Jo.rdan asking •'•.him to secure you the presidency of • this institution?" "\u25a0' . .""I made a conditional application, - only a conditional application, to Doc- ; ' ."tor Jordan two weeks ago. Yes, I did ;"..-ihat." • - -. : ." "To whom el6e did you write or .: apply for aid?" '.. . "I spoke to some others at Stanford . university, to Assemblyman Costa, Ed Williams and Colonel C. C. Royce." Colonel Royce and Ed Williams are two influential citizens of Chico, the former having charge of the Biddle • estate and the latter being cashier of ' the Butte County savings bank. "Did you apply for the position to the "governor?" Denies Being Underhanded "So. I did not," said Doctor Miller. \u25a0 A pause followed this question and the • witness, after clearing his throat un ;easily, said: "I wish to say I have not .done anything underhanded in this af . fair." , "Who accused you?" shouted Sey \u25a0 mour. "Who accused you of that, sir?" | . Miller replied that the trend of the questions would give such an Impres sion. When Doctor Miller left the stand Attorney General Webb asked permis sion to introduce as evidence the let ters written by Governor _ Gillett to Miss Nona Lindley, asking "her for a .statement. The attorneys for the de fense objected. "You were so eager to get them a ' short time ago," said Webb, "and cre • ated such a disturbance that I see no - reason why you should want to keep •: ; them out now. The fact of the mat • . ter is that so much has been said about .these letters that they have come to ..' bw looked upon as being something - mysterious. I want to clear all doubts •'about them and to show Governor Gil ' lelt's attitude In regard to them." : "We wished to see the letters," said •Attorney Yell, "but It must be evident I to you that they are merely the opln •\u25a0 ions of the governor in the case, and '•worthless e« evidence. It Is irnmate • rial to this inquiry "what Governor GJl lett's personal views on the situation are." \u25a0: ; "You must know, general," added . Seymour, Vthat the letter, is not ad missible as evidence." "I know nothing of the sort," re plied-Webb. "Well. I won't take back any of the things I: have said regarding your ' ability as a lawyer, but I maintain that it ls.unjust and unfair.". / . . \u25a0** .

The expres sion wan la the form of a wet of resolutions which clearly set forth the attitude of.^ those who know him as a president and a man, and of the 45 present not one refused to place his name on the list. am unfair, Mr. Seymour." said Webb sharply. Governor's Letters The letters which finally were intro duced as evidence, were as follows: San Francisco; June 23, 1910.— Miss Nona Lindley, 1820 Green- Ttl 1 Btree t. San Francisco — Dear Madame: Your address was given to me by Miss Ada Clark of Black 6tation, Yolo county, who at tended school with you at the Chico Normal. She came to see me . the other day concerning a matter between herself and Doc tor \an Liew and stated to me that after she came out of his of fice she met you In the hallway and you spoke to her and asked her what was the matter and she told you what .had taken place and also requested her, I think she said, to go into the schoolroom and to get her books for her, as she would not go in herself and did not intend to continue at the school. Will you please write to me your recollection of what took place at that time? I am quietly investi gating this matter myself and de sire very much to have your state ment. Please let me hear from you as soon as possible. JAMES N. GILLETT. The second letter is addressed to Miss Lindley at 1619 Scenic avenue Berkeley. It follows: • " . ' Sacramento, June 29. — Dear Ma dame: Your letter of June 26 in reply to mine asking for informa tion concerning what Miss Clark said to you after coming, out' of Dr. Van Liew's private office has been duly received and I wish to ' thank you very much for the in formation contained. This state ment given by you is exactly what she told me she said to you. I be lieve that the young lady Is very reliable. JAMES N. GILLETT. Rev. C. Todd Clark, brother of Miss Ada Clark, was put on the stand late in the day, but his testimony did not de velop anything new, being in substance the same as given out In his published statements. While giving it the attor neys for the defense continually inter posed objections, declaring the state ments to be intangible and Inchoate. "I would not ask to have a dog con victed on such stuff,'? shouted Yell. Underestimated Value Rev. Mr. Clark explained that though his sister had mentioned the fact of Miss Lindley meeting her in the cor ridor after her interview with Doctor Van Liew, he did not look upon that as being corroborative evidence and for that reason did not mention the fact to the board of trustees when the matter came up' before them twice before. "It was not until I conversed with the governor," said he, "that it was made known to me how important Miss Lind ley's testimony was." On cross examination he said that he had been helped in his case against Van Liew by an individual known as "Bowling Alley Peary." "Did you know that this 'Bowling Alley Peary* had some trouble with Doctor Van Liew?" he was asked- "I knew there had been some trouble between the two men." "Did you know that the trouble arose because of Doctor Van Liew making a public effort to have Peary's bowling alley closed up, declaring that many' students of the normal school were, being ruined there?" "I did not know the cause of the trouble." Peary Is Blamed The claim of the defense is that much of the charges against Van Liew are based on rumor and scandal set afloat by Peary. In Mrs. Adeline Much, a witness for the prosecution, was found another who refused to answer questions. She declared Van Liew had a bad reputa tion, but upon being pressed for the names of those from whom she had gathered her opinion she refused to an swer. The matter, after a little dis cussion by the board, was allowed to pass. Once again the prosecution was hard put for witnesses and once again there arose the clash between the at torneys as . to whether the defense should start with Its witnesses before the prosecution had ' closed' its case. The board of trustees decided that this would be the best course to save time. During the day a large .number, of businessmen attended the hearing in a body to testify for Van Liew. They were brought In one after another, asked a few' brief questions, declared Van Liew to have an excellent character, and; left. Those who testified were Byron W. Case, Dr. Gilbert H. Taylor, D. A. Ben nett, a lumberman; J. F. Morehead, a farmer; J. R. Wood, dry 'goods mer chant; A.,.5. Jones,', druggist; . Harry Moyer, insurance; Joseph ! Rosenberg, cloak and suit business; Kenneth Mc- Kenzle, farmer; William Seydel, dentist- John A. McManus, real estate dealer and a wealthy property holder of Chico, and Harold Bernard, a medical student. Applause and Hisses The applause and hisses came with Bernard's testimony. After stating that Van Liew had a good reputation. At torney General Webb asked him In a sarcastic manner whether; r he knew "Bowling Alley Peary" and Harmon Mc- Garger, "two persons who have taken an exceedingly active "Interest in the proceedings." Such was the favorite question of the attorneys for the de fense, and Webb's mimicry brought the ready laughter.. "Yes, I know them,"- said the witness. "Do you know any good of them?" shouted Seymour. "No, I do not," said Bernard. At his answer there was a burst of handclapplng and cheers and hisses. Miss Clark- was recalled to the wit ness stand and went over portions of her testimony regarding the reason why she did not mention the corroborative evidence of Miss Nona Lindley when first telling the trustees her story. "Because I did not think that was corroborative evidence," she replied. "I realized it only after the governor-had informed me of its Importance." :. :\u25a0 The case will be" continued tomorrow morning. - ; When the 200 delegates of the Amer ican Institute of Homeopathy departed for home last Thursday- evening, ;they each c.arried with them; a bottle .of choice Tipo as a souvenir" of Califor nia's hospitality ;\u25a0; \u25a0 :\u25a0 ;-•"'-\u25a0 THE SAN FBA^CISCCyyC 1,000 WORKMEN LAY DOWN TOOLS Union Hoisting Engineers and Hod Carriers Quit, Demand ing Eight Hour Day Employing Contractors Stand Pat and Say Higher Wages Are Intolerable Differences between the union hod carriers and the hoisting engineers on the one hand and the contractors on the other came to a climax yesterday morn ing, with the result that 1,000 members of the two unions are idle, a large num ber of brick layers and plasterers have been forced to suspend work and .build ing generally throughout the city has been seriously crippled. The point at issue is the length of the working day of the hod carriers and hoisting en gineers. They have been employed on an B*6 hour schedule. The unwillingness of the contractors to accede to an eight hour day has precipitated the break. The unions term it a "lockout," the employers a "strike." The scale of wages for hod carriers has been as fol lows: . ' Men working with brick layers, $4 a day; the mortar men, scaffold men, etc., $4.50; men working with plasterers, '.ss." The hoisting engineers have been re ceiving $6 a day. The work of the hod carriers has con sisted of 8% hours, divided as" follows: From 7:40 to 12 noon, and from 12:50 to 5. It is the contention of the hod car-; riers that under the terms of a recent agreement they should quit in the morning at 11:40 and in the evening at 4:50.. This would make an even eight hour day. The contractors explain that it is necessary for the hod carriers to begin work ahead of "the brick layers arid plasterers in order that they may have' material mixed and ready by the, time the others report for duty. This the hod carriers are willing to do, but they insist that they shduld not be forced to work beyond the eight hour period. The contractors have united to con test the issue and announce that they will not yield. The hod carriers have the support of the building trades coun cil, which will stand with them through out the controversy. O. A. Tveitmoe, secretary of the build- Ing trades council, speaklngof the sit uation, said: "I have no knowledge of a strike or lockout. The business agents of the building trades council and the hod car riers' union have reported to me that the hod carriers and brick layers are working. As the representatives of the masons and builders, have stated re peatedly, both verbally and in writing to the building trades council, the con tractors are In favor of the shorter workday, I can not conceive how the inauguration of the eight hour day for. the hod carriers can be used as a pre text for a lockout. "The associated building contractors, the state building trades council, as well as. the local council and the hod carriers have tentatively agreed on a plan which would give the hod carriers a shorter workday without any incon venience to other trades of the building industry, or monetary \u25a0 loss either to journeyman, contractor, . architect or owner. "There may possibly be a 1a 1 few brick contractors who believe that an eignt hour working day is good for every body with the exception of the few hod carriers and laborers which these con tractors employ. - , "The hod carriers will have the full support of the building trades council of San Francisco, its affiliated unions and their membership, and the state building trades council of California." The associated general building con tractors, the Masons' and Builders' asso ciation of San Francisco and the Con tracting Plasterers' association met yes terday afternoon and decided, to stand pat. Each association appointed three members, and these nine will constitute a committee with full power 'to act. This committee met last night and gave out the following statement: Building operations are practi cally at a standstill today through out the city as a result of the de mand of the hod carriers and the hoisting engineers for a raise in wages. Committees representing the. Associated -General- Contrac tors' association, the Masons' and Builders' association and the Con- tracting Plasterers' association met in the room of the Builders' ex change late this afternoon for the purpose of considering the strike situation, and a strike committee was organized and will meet daily In the rooms of the builders' ex change until the controversy. is set tled. , - Employers generally are of the opinion that no raise in the present high scale of wages can be toler ated and all are prepared to resist such demands to the fullest ex tent. A statement covering in full the employers' side of the controversy will be submitted to the public in the near future. Charles A. Day ~i> J. J. Connolly - J. E. Steerc A. H. Berfrstrom Thomas W.

"I have seen Mr. Clapham in New York and Brooklyn hundreds of times, but always believed him the brother of the woman I had married.

July 25.— Senator J. T. Bristow declared tonight in an ad dress that Senator Aldrich forced an In crease in the cotton tariff schedules when the cotton manufacturers In thi3 country were not asking: for it. Sen ator Bristow charged that the increase was made to boom the stock market He said: It is interesting to know why Mr. Aldrich insisted upon increased • cotton duties when the mill owners and manufacturers testified in the hearlngrs before the ways and means committee that they were not needed. But an examination of stock issues of the United .. States for the year 1909 furnishes the reason. These increases were not made for the protection of any legitimate manufacturing enter-'--? prises In the United States, but to boom the stock market. Last year there were issued $90,000,000 addl- . tlonal cotton and woolen stocks, $64,000,000 that previously had been authorized but not issued, and $2f t 000.000 of new stocks. : ,How much of this stock repre sented actual Investment I am not advised, but under the impression that these Increased duties on cot ton goods and the maintenance of the excessive duty on woolena. would give at least a temporary Impetus to the business, these stocks found. a market. So .those increases, therefore, driven through by Mr. Aldrich. were in the inter ests of the stock gamblers and speculators and not in the Inter ests of legitimate manufacturing enterprises. The duty on cotton goods, valued at more than 7 cents per square yard, was Increased on an average . of 20 to 25 per cent in the face of the testimony of H. P. Lippitt. rep resentative of the Cotton Manufac- i turers' association of New England, before the \u25a0ways and means com-, mittee, that the cotton manufac turers did not want any increased schedule. All they asked was that the duties remain the same. In his- testimony Mr. Lippitt said: j "I am not appearing here to ask for an increase in the duties on the cloth clauses of the cotton sched ule,. I think that while there are Importations going on under them. the importations are not so large > that we feel justified in asking that the duties be increased; but we would not like to see them de creased, a* we believe that any de crease would certainly result in very much larger importations and a great deal more of our cotton being manufactured abroad and shipped back as finished goods."
