CINCINNATI. Nov. 17. When the Miller and Johns trial was resumed today, Jo seph T. Watson occupied the witness stand. Watson Is secretary to Fourth Assistant Postmaster General Bristow and was con cealed behind Brlstow's high desk at the time Miller was first confronted with the charges regarding the rulings for John J. Ryan A Co., turf commissioners, to con tinue the use of the mails. Watson read his stenographer's notes of the questions propounded at that time by General Ilobb and Chief Inspector Cochran and the re plies of Miller, the latter not knowing at the time that he was being fully reported. Charles T. Nolan of St. Louis testified to being Ryan's attorney, while the post office Inspectors were investigating him last November. Objection whs made to Nolan testifying about what Ryan said about Johns, showing a letter from Miller In Terrc Haute. After arguments , court reserved reclsion. In the afternoon Nolan was allowed to testify to what Ryan had told htm about the meeting with Johns at the Phllbreck hotel In Terre Haute. Many objections were overruled as Nolan testified as to what Ryan said about contracting with Johns after seeing the letter from Miller that directed Johns to see Ryan at once. When the defense asked Nolan If he had not received his subpoena today to corro borate the testimony of Ryan yesterday, the witness testified that he had arrived from St. Louis yesterday afternoon on business with Ryan. Nicholas Phllbreck of Terre Haute again produced his register and testified to Ryan registering at his hotel last November as George C. Rose. The principal witness of the day was1 George A. Chriatlaney of Michigan, who was first assistant attorney In the Post office department under Tyser, when Mil ler waa the second assistant attorney Chrlstlancy after testifying to all of the hearings and rulings in the Ryan case described the circumstances under which he had finally dismissed that case. He said that Miller had referred to the Arnold and other cases where the use of the malls waa allowed, after Investigations had been ordered and thought the aame should be done In the Ryan case. Chrlstlancy said that Miller, In suggesting the letter clos ing the Ryan case, had not advised him fully about the character of the latest reports of ths postofflce Inspectors which were unfavorable to Ryan, continuing the use of the mails. In his cross-examination Chrlstlancy identified his own Interview In the Washington Star after the chargrs were made against Miller, In which the witness said the Ryan rase was "as straight as a string." The witness stated that the facts In the article In tbe. Washington Star were pre pared by Mr. Huebner of the Pottofflce de partment and submitted to General and Mrs. Tyner. ,1 Adjourned until tomorrow.',', '.'y' lit V CIK.tfSr HbbM tU'.m ' An Ik v.lK.
