claim of the Chickaaatr Indlame prr-

WASHINGTON , May 15. Wilson
continued hla address to the atar route
jury thla morning , in behalf of Gen.
Brady. Taking up petitions , ho
asked how Brady was to know that
the heads of petitions had been writ
ten by D jrsey'a employes , as ho could
not have known their handwriting.
Then It made no dlflarence who wrote
the heads ( the court Itself said Doraoy
had a right to do It ) , BO long aa the
signatures were genuine , and that waa
beyond question. Thla case shonldbe
tried upon the evidence that Gen , Bra
dy had before him , and not that caught
In the proseontlon'adrag-not and sifted

Wilson , in hla addrota to the jury ,
referred to the Bismarck Tongue river
route aa confirmatory of hla assertion
that a route was not valuable eolely In
proportion to the amount of receipts
at the termini. The letters passing
daily over that route bore a stamp to
the amount of $100 , yet the balance
sheets of the oih'cea on the routes did
not ahow the Bales of stamps to that
amount. That tended to prove the
mutual dependence of the routes.
When John Doraey wont out to es
tablish that route he was forced to
accept military escort , yet that
same section ia now settled ,
oven Caster's battle field
has been occupied by thrifty
emigrants , yet the prosecution would
have the jury to believe the service
cost too much. Brady refused to dla
continue the service and the contrac
toraloat $40,000 or $50,000. But
that made no difference with the
prosecution. If ho had let them out ;
if he had granted their request to dla
continue the service , the government
would have instanced that In proof of
conaoiraoy. In reality Brady's course
in regard to the Bismarck route , was
the boat proof that there was no con
spiracy. Co-conspirators did not
usually force one another to lose
The court adjourned before the con
elusion cf Wilson's address.
