HOW THE BARONET CHEATED THE PRiNCE.
llaironr Dellvrrs n Speeuh In Liondon
in Dclenso of th CrlniuH Act
Why ! ) ( ( iliuln Plod
Lovnov , Juno 3. There was still the snmo
crowd of fnshlonnbto people present this
morning when court opened to continue tbo
trial of the baccarat case Tbo urlnco of
Wales sat In tils usual placo. Sir Charles
Husscll , leading counsel for the defendant ,
commenced his address on behalf of his
Sir Charles slid : ' 'Tho brccos brenos
which had been drawn up In regard to the
baccarat scandal said that the plaintiff
should ho watched. Beyond the marked
table , however , there was no concert of
action of any kind , but all who know the
story of the previous day's plav and Sir
William Gordon-Gumming repeated tbo
actions complained of. "
Henewcd Interest was shown upon the part
of the always most attontlvo audlonco gath
ered In the court of quean's bench when Mr.
Arthur Wilson , son of the millionaire owner
of Trunbycrof t nnd one of the leading stock
holders of the well known Wilson line of
steamers pljlng between Hull , London , New
York nnd many other ports , entered the wit
ness box as the llrst witness for the defense.
Mr. Wilson testified to the fact that on the
first night of the baccarat plav Ing nt Trnnby-
croft Septembers ho saw n red counloi
representing JC5 on a piece of paper In front
of Sir William Gordon-Gumming. When the
latter's tableau won Sir William hud his
hands in front of htm and ho also had an
other 5 counter In the palm of bis light
band. The baronet , according to this wit
ness , looked at Sir Edward Somer's hand and
seeing that bu had a "natural" and u couit
catd , ho ( Sir William ) at once chopped the
5 counter from his right hand and was paid
on both of the counters he had thus placed on
the table. The evidence was given by Mr.
Wilson without any hesitation and in a man
ner vvhlcn seemed to impress the Jury and
which decidedly impressed the nudionco and
caused a gicat. . sensation In the couit room.
Continuing , Mr. Wilson said that ho saw the
same thing repeated by Sir William
the same evening and ho then told
Mr. Lcavitt that the baionot was
cheating at cants. Mr. Leavltt bald that it
was "Impossible , " that the witness must bo
mistaken. Mr Wilson added that ho then
told Mr. Lcavitt to watch Sir William. Mr.
Leavitt , said Mr Wilson , followed bis advice
and ho also saw the baionot cheating , as al
ready described. Mr. Lcavitt , upon oeing
convinced by poisonal observation what Mr.
Wilson said was tiue , exclaimed , "Ibis is
top hot. " Mr. Wilson said that ho saw Sir
William cheat again. Cumming had n 5
counter on the table and if thu card tuuied
up was favorable to him ho pushed a J
counter forward with a pencil which ho held
In his band and was paid. The witness then
detailed tbo uuhsequcnt conversation which
ho had with'MivLeavittin tbo latter's bed
room , saying that when bo told the latter of
what bo had seen Mr. Lcavitt exclaimed :
"My God , to think of Lieutenant Colonel Sir
William Cordon-Oummlng being caught
cnoating at caids. " Continuing the wltnosn
said : "I risked whaton cat tli aio vvo to dot"
To this Miv Loavitt replied : "For goodness
sake , don't ask mu Ho is In tcv own regl-
nlput nnd wns my own cuptam. What
nin I to dol" Later on Mr. Wilson sold , "I
then told my mother of what I had done , and
motbor sold. 'Por goodness sake don't ' have
n scandal hero. ' I then told her that I would
have a piopor table pieparcd for baccarat
pla > ingso that a lopotltlon of tbo conduct wo
bad obsuivod would bu lundor d impossible "
Referring to a question on the subject , joung
Mr. vVllson said that there was absolutely no
agreement to watch Sir William plnv on" the
second night September 9. The table used
on that occasion was a long pantry table cov
ered with green baize. As upon the pro-
vlous night , the prince of Wales occupied the
position ol banker and Gunoial Owen Will
iams that as croupier. Tno witness believed
that tbo plaintiff again had a paper and some
of his counters on tbo table. Ho had other
counters In the breast pocket of bis dress
cout. The plaintiff , added the witness , bud a
long , thick carpenter's pencil in his hand. In
this pencil the word "Tranbjcroft" was
stamped. Sir William staked a 5 counter
and the prince of Wales gave cards to
Lady Coventry , who tooK a seven ,
which was considered a good card ,
from the plaintiff. According to the wit
ness , ho looked over L.ady . Coven
try's ' hand. The witness then saw
Sir William go out mid gradually
advance toward the w bite line marked oil
the baccarat table Continuing. Mr. Wilson
said , amid suth breathless silence on the
part of everyone In tbo couit room that
literally the diopplng of n pin would have
been heard , that it then came around to the
prince of Wales' turn to take a card and he
took ono and said , "I am baccarat , " the caul
being bad. Immediately upon homing this ,
said the witness , Sir William pustied just
over the line a 110 counter , four inches away
from the oilginal counter. The plaintiff's
tableau won and the , prince ofales paid
htm "liver " the ether
n , overlooking counter
which the plaintiff had pushed over the line.
Thereupon Sir William exclaimed , "Beg
pnidon , sir , thuro Is another 'tenner' which
jou have forgotten. " This 11111103cd the
prince of Wales , who said : "I wish jou
would put jour stakes forward more con
spicuously , " pa ) Ing the additional 10.
Later In thu game , said the w Itncss Sir
William Hipped another counter ever the
line with bis pencil. When the disclosures
were made the piinco of Wales questioned
the witness , Mr. Berkley Leavltt and Mr.
Lycott Green in regard to what they
hud been of a vviong nature dur
ing the playing and Mr. Green asked
con flouted with thu plaintiff. Replying to
further questions Mr. Green bald from the
tlmo the action brought for damages against
the defendants wa-s commenced ho had never
said a word In connection with the affair.
Upon cioss-cxamlnation ttio witness said
that ho hud no occupation and that ho had
been ut Cambildgo unlveislty for u year ,
"but , " ho added , "my father thoaght It only
u waste of time my staying them" Uo.ir *
of laughter at Mr. Wilson's expense followed
this admUslon. In answer to further ques
tions Mr Wilson said that baccarat was
placed at Tmnbjciuft In IbS'J , "but father
objected toll and it was not plnvcd tbuio
again until upon the occasion of the piincu
of Wales' visit in t-optomber , IbOO. "
Sir Charles Uusscll hi scathing terms denounced
nouncod Sir Gordon Cutnmitm for testing
under sudi nn odious Imputation us thU ,
adding "I tuns bald that this was done In
older to avoid n scandal which would involve
tlrb prince of Wales , but n man of honor , if
there wt.ro llltj princes in tbo case , would
not have allowed nU honor to be clouded for
any such consldu.-atlon. No , this won't do.
The only way in whldi this scandal
uffectod the pilnco of Wales was that ho was
playing u Irlandly game of bnccniat In n
IioiHO where there was a client Sir William
Clgrdon-Cuniinlng's explanation far ibis

bavo seen him In thn witness box , cool ,
