Matches, who was ouoled by: the latter in testimony as having' stated that lVIletier was to get $3,000 of the $20,500 fee paid Coakley to avert protwutioh of the Emerson Motors company, was permitted by the court to make a statement. Carroll said: ,"I have never in private conversation or in anv other way intimated thut I thought or had been informed that Pelletier got- 0,000 or any other t.um of monev." Carroll asked the court if it would care to hear the contents of corre spondence he had had with Matches. the court stated it did nut consider the correspondence imporant as the only matter it cared to hear concerned the testimony of Matches about the division of fees. The court adjourned until Monday ith the announcement that arguments would begin at that time. The court granted a request of coun sel for Pelletier to lie permitted to urge, in connection with argument next week, that all testimony ns t acts and declarations of persons madn outside the presence of Pelletier ad- tmitted during the trial on the state's promise to connect them with Pelletier, be stricken out. Formal motion to thi effect waa contained in a brief filed with the court. The court made no comment in al lowing three of the bank transactions, cited by the prosecutions, to go into the record while excluding the complete schedule. Three items accepted by tho court were. Withdrawals of $l,Oti by Coakley June 10. 1010 and a deposit of that amount by Pelletier June 1.1, 1;S; withdrawal bv Coakley of f.'I.OOo, July 13. 1917, and deposit of $.1,lKK) by Pelletier July IS. 1017. and withdrawal of $1.2,0 by Coakley November 1", 1917 and deposit of this sum by Pel letier Xovember 1-4. 1017. The ruling excluded also a transcript, of Pelletier a visit to his safety deposit vault, but this was allowed to go into the record by Pelletier'a counsel. In permitting-Carroll to. make a statement, the court announced it was granting him the privilege as a mem ber of the Boston bar, and that his statement was not to lie considerred a part of the evidence in thei-ase. tonferenoe between counsel led lo out of an automobile accident wliich or. j ue announcement inai annimenia ior curred in Irashurg in September, lf-. aide would be held to approximate- came 'up in Vashiiton countv court j ly f'w hours, altbmufli the court on lhurlav. when a hearingon the stated that owing to the-tact that, evi- f..,-. r.,w,r ... brl.l he for Jo, i-. rtence la neen.oiicrea in more man Sherman R, Moulton and Side JiMipes ; "" of instances of allcped miaron- tK. ! .....V,. ih. .k..,.H Iw. ii.
