ATTORNEYS ARGUE AT LENGTH Witnesses on Either Side Scored by Opposing Collate! in Plraa for or Against Man Accused of Jury Tampering;. Whether Al Keenan goes free or la to ttsnd trial In district court will be an nounced by County Judge Lrf-slle at 10 O'clock this morning. The hearing of evi dence and argument was concluded yes terday afternoon. County Att-rney English summed up for , the state at the afternoon session, follow- ' Ing the closing remarks of A. W. Jefferls for the defendant, Jfferls having con tinued after the noon sdjournament his i analysis of the evidence of Barrett and Van Cleve against Keenan. English argued that a considerable quantity of Irrelevant material had been Injected Into the case by the other side and he paid considerable attention to the address of J. J. O'Connor, scoring ' that lawyer for calling Judgea Kennedy and Day "grandstand players." "Mr. dross' testimony with regard to the promissory' note Is Irrelevant to the main Issue here as Jefferla has said," de clared English, "but It Is no more Ir relevant than Barrett's about the purpose for which he sought money from Keenan." It was on this point that Barrett at an afternoon session withdrew statements he had made In the morning about paying hla mother's Insurance, though admitting he had not told Keenan the truth. Then English read the testimony of Gross on cross-examination with regard to the promissory note and contraated it with the testimony of Bhotwell that Kef nan hawed him the note made payable to Keenan by Ores for $100. Juror's Ktldeuc Attacked. Jesse O. Barrett and J. V. VanCleve ere depicted In highly unflattering colors at the morning session, and Attorney Henry C. Murphy came In for a share of the denunciation. Thla occurred in the arguments of J. J. O Connor and A. W. Jefferla In behalf of Keenan, while previously County Attorney English had served notice that If this hap pened he "would be prepared to discuss their witnesses at some length." English had attempted to nullify the on slaught on his witnesses in his opening address, but It was doubted If he succeeded In completely neutralising the vigorous grilling Barrett and Vsn Cleve received at the hands of Jefferls. That attorney devoted himself to an an alysis of their testimony at various times and was more sparing of epithets than O'Connor. The latter called them "lying scoundrels, black as hell's self." Jefferls dubbed them 'lame ducks" and "these In nocent virgins." Before argument began the state re Introduced Van Cleve for brief testimony and then called Clinton Brome to testify ss to the date of the conference In Judge Bears' office. , Ahotweli w the Note. The next witness waa Attorney Frank A. Bhotwell. He testified Keenan had shown him the night he was arrested a promla aory note signed by Arthur Gross in favor of Keenan. Gross, when testifying, de nied that he had ever Issued any note in Keenan'a favor. The county attorney spoke with compara tive brevity In opening the argument A considerable portion of his remarks con sisted of an attempt to fortify Barrett and Van Cleve against the attack certain to come, and he also declared with regard to Henry Murphy that "his conduct hss been entirely praiseworthy and an honeet at tempt to set right the district court of Douglas county." "How little," continued English, "they will e:iy with regard to the material por tions of Barrett's testimony and how much with regard to the insurance. If N they do we may feel called upon to diacuas some of their witnesses." J. J. O'Connor In reply declared that "the recent outcry against jury-fixing la nothing but an attempt to prejudice the public so that verdicts may be secured against the street car company In 'hold-up cases.' " O'Connor declared that "It aeems this case had lta inception on the 25th of April when Barrett visited Murphy the first time. Then was the adder's egg hatched." I tterly I urt saonsblr, He Says. The attorney then urged that It was ut terly unreasonable to believe that the street car company would attempt to Influence jury In a case like that of Stewart when the case of the plaintiff waa weak. "Corporations," said O'Connor, "do not buy that which has no value." Next he urged that there had been dis courtesy shown Judge Day In his not being Invited, as the lawyer asserted, into the Conference in Judge Sears' office, when Judgea Bears and Kennedy and a number of attorneys and the two jurors were present. "There Is honor among thieves, among lawyera, among gentlemen, and courtesy should have been ' shown Judge Day In this matter, since he presided at the trial." Then the attorney went on to call the present case "part of such a conspiracy as we have had before to Influence public sentiment so that verdicts can be secured against the street car company In hold-up cases. "They do not go to Judge Day, but to the other judgea, and half a dosen of them, Henry Murphy among them, de termined to Invoke the power of Douglas county that a movement should be worked up to create a public sentiment against the street car company." . Compares Him to St. Peter. O'Connor closed with a similitude of Bar rett to St. Peter. He waa led Into tt In thla way: "On Barrett this case must stand or fall. He Is the rook on which this case rests, just as St. Peter Is the rock on which the Catholic church rests." A. W. Jefferls followed In an- address, analysing and attacking the testimony cf Vancleve and Barrett. Inconsistencies be tween the two and between each man with himself at different times, ware pointed out to the court. The chief point which Jefferls made had to do with what he called "the development" of their testi mony. Tsklng the affidavits which each made before Attorney Brome for a new trial In the Stewart case, Jefferla showed that the teatlmony of both on the stand was much more ample, and he asserted that they had been drilled by Henry Mur phy with a view to Inculpating Keenan, the testimony in the affidavits, Jefferls said, not being sufficient to do this.

I'ntll two years- sgo Gill rode the range In the Casper country and while a resident of this section by Improper treatment compelled his first wife to abandon him. He left Casper to Join the Buffalo Bill show and was with that or ganisation when he committed the alleged New York crime. PARIS, May 21 Continuing his letters In Figaro Signor Ouglelmo Ferrero, the Italian historian who recently visited the I'nited States, undertakes to explain today the moral upheaval In America of the last few years against some "methods of high finance." He says that Europe, to comprehend America and the crises pre paring there should not confound the antl plutocratic movement with European so cialism. After reviewing the Immense sensation caused by the crusade of In dividual writers and official Inquiries and prosecutions Into matters of Industry and finance, which hs says have made Europe believe America was a seething caldron of moral corruption, Signor Ferrero Insists that a close examination compels a dif ferent conclusion. He gives It as his opinion that the antl-plutocratlo movement was festered by the Jealousies of the middle claases against the rich and that it borrowed many catch words from social ism. Its fundamental Idea, however, was to prove that America, so often accused of materialism, was still strongly Inspired by purttanloa.1 tradition and democratic instincts.
