books witness continued: "The loss was
$723.80 during this time and the amount of
her loss from August 7, 1902. to the time
of Mr. Llllle'a death waa $1,025. Thla In
cludea everything up to this time. All of
these transactions were made on tbe Chi
cago Board of Trade through me. Nearly
all of these transactions were made by tel
ephone. The day bsfore the death of Mr.
Lillie ahe called me up. She wanted me
to sell her aome corn. I do not remember
all that waa eald. I told hr It would take
1200 In marglna If the market stayed there
and if the market went up it would take
more. I think ;hls is the oply positive
amount, and ahe told me she would have
the money for me that night or the next
morning, and I presume I told her all
right. I do not think there was anything
said as to how or where she would pay
the money. I understood that and ao did
she. She always mailed the money to me
throuah the Dostofflce. Thia 5200 waa not
Included In tbe 31,025. She told me to keep
my business to myself and not to say any
thing to Harvey about It."

the net losses during the whole period of
four years would not exceed i00.
"Harvey Llllle never talked to roe about

In any amount whatever; if any, it waa
very small. "I have no record prior to
November 18. 1901. The record prior to
thla date was Just sheets kept by me."' I
presume they were destroyed;, some of
them I know were." The defendant then
filed a motion to dismiss and discharge
the defendant, for the reason that tbe
state has not made a prima facie case.
Judge Miller argued the motion earnestly
and endeavored to point out to the court
wherein the atate had not Introduced evi
dence tending to prove that the defendant
committed the crime, asserting that the
exhibits Introduced In evidence could not
be considered by the court.
Attorneys for the state argued with force
that they had a good strong case of cir
cumstantial evidence, pclnting out tbelr
strongest points. Judge Miller closed the
arjjment by quoting some of the testimony
Judge SkMes declined to discuss the testi
mony, but overruled the motion, to which
ruling the defendant duly excepted.
Upon request of the defendant court ad

WASHINGTON, Jan. 6. In an opinion
handed down by Justice Brown today the
I'hlted Statea supreme court decides In the
Bownea case that the money paid by tbe
Russian government on sugar exported la a
bounty and that the collector of customs at
New York waa Justified In levying a coun
tervailing duty on Russian sugar under the
terms of the Dlngley law.
The case came to the supreme court on
a writ of certiorari brought to test rulings
of the lower court and ot the board of gen
eral appraisers holding a cargo Imported
Into Baltimore from Ruasla to be subject to
a countervailing duty liable upon merchan
dise upon which a bounty is paid on west
ern transportation. The court today con
firmed these rulings.
Justice Brown aald under Russla'a method
of fostering its augar Industry, free sugar
which could be aold In Russia at the nor
mal excise of 1 75-100 roubles per pound
might be exported under a permit from the
excise office upon the return ot a free augar
certificate with the custom house export
mark, the excise then crediting the ex
ported quantity of augar to the free surplus
of the mill which la subject to the double
tax of 1.75 roubles.
Discussing tbe effect of thia certificate.
Justice Brown eald:
In practice the market value of these
claims must vary according to the demand
and supply, but the theory underlying the
transaction Is always this, that the ex
porter shall suffer no loss because he has
exported his free sugar Instead of oelllng
it In the home market. It Is practically ad-
j mitted In this case that a bounty!
to the value of these certificates is paid
by the Russian government, and the main
J argument of the petitioner Is addressed to
msumeni 01 me petitioner I ni
the proposition that this bount

upon exportation must to a certain extent
operate as a bounty upon production, since
nothing can be exported which Is not pro
duced and since a bounty upon exporta
tion, by creating a foreign demand, stimu
lates an Increased production to the extent
of such demand. Consequently the bounty
on production operates to a certain extent
as a bounty upon exportation, el nee It opens
to the manufacturer a certain markt for
his merchandise produced In excess of de
mand at home. Where regulations exempt
suiiar from excise taxation altogether we
think they clearly fall within the defini
tion of an Indirect bounty upon exporta
