CINCINNATI. Oct 1.-The trial of D.
V. Miller and J. M. Jones for alleged con
spiracy to extort a bribe was resumed be
fore United States Judge Thomas today.
District Attorney Sherman McPherson con
tinued the cross-examination of Johns, who
was on the witness stand yesterday.
To a question put by McPherson aa to
why Johns did not mall the decision en
closed In a letter from Miller to his client
(Ryan) rather than arrange for a meet
ing with Ryan in Cincinnati, the witness
replied that although he had written con.
tracts with Ryan he went to see him and
make sure of getting his money. He de
nied that payment was contiguous on get
ting specific rulings. The witness was
closely questioned as to how Ryan could
make him any trouble, also as to why he
did not give Ryan the Chrlstlancy decision
of December 6, when they first met on the
night of December 6 at Cincinnati and
withheld the same until Ryan paid the
balance of the S4.400 the next morning,
Johns was again questioned as to what he
had read on postal laws and his special
qualifications for practice before the Post-
office Department where the Ryan case
was the only one In which he participated
He denied that Miller was the one who
was expected to revise Ryan's literature, or
that his friendship with Miller was his
special qualifications. He said his telegram
to Miller reading: "Our first proposition
accepted," did not refer to the written
contracts with Ryan but to another mat
ter. Johns was again questioned as to his
bank books and checks but nothing new
waa brought out-
As to Johns Record.
A telegram was presented, showing that
Johns had offered his services before the
postofflce to Secretary Smith of the Na
tlonal Security company of St Louis and
then the witness was closely questioned
whether he considered It professional to
Albert M. Adams, an attorney of Rock
vllle, Ind., with offices adjoining those of
Johns, was examined aa to his relations
with Johns and some business he had
transacted for him, and also as to Johns'
calling Miller by the name of "Jim."
W. H. Nichols, cashier of the Rockvllle
National bank was examined as to Johns'
business and produced records of the bank
Thomas. Aldelotte, sheriff of Parke
county, Indiana, and brother-in-law of
Johns, testified to accompanying Johns to
Cincinnati December 16. He did not hear
Johns tell Ryan: "Here, I brought you
the goods," or "It took clever work to
get that signature of Chrlstlancy," or any
thing of that kind. He saw Ryan settle
with Johns on that occasion by paying the
balance of 11,000 In checks and cash.
Miller a Defense Beajran.
The defense of Johns then closed ard
Chief Postofflce Inspector Cochran of
Washington was called a the first witness
for Miller. He testified to an Interview
with Miller, In which he charged that
"Ryan had been held up," and wanted
Miller to explain it Inspector Cochran
also testified to wltholdlng Miller's mail.
Francis Huebner, a clerk In the office of
the assistant attorney general for the
Postofflce at Washington, testified that
Chrlstlancy thought It would be better
to have Ryan St Co. revise their literature
so as to comply with the postal require
ments than to Issue a fraud order and
so Instructed Miller.
D. W. Miller then took the stand. He
stated he advocated that a fraud order
issue against Ryan,' but on the presenta
tions of Outcalt of Cincinnati, counsel for
Ryan, that Ryan tt Co. would eliminate
all objectionable features of their turf
commission and guarantee enough deposits
to pay all certificates, Chrlstlancy allowed
the concern to continue on the observance
of certain stipulations that were made in
writing. Miller also testified that the
much disputed supplemental report of the
postofflce Inspectors on the Ryan case
was delivered to htm December 9, when
Chrlstlancy waa with him In their office
and that the latter read It and said there
was nothing new In it and directed Miller
to write a letter on the Ryan case, sim
ilar to the ruling In the Arnold case, hut
to write It with "a airing to It"
Letter with, a String to It.
The witness read the letter and explained
that the first part was the ruling and the
lost part was the "string." He explained
that Ryan was not then paying on dr
mand, but on thirty days' notice, on ac
count of being ruled off the turf at New
Orleans. Miller aald the "string" waa In
tended to prevent Ryan from using the let
ter for promoting or advertising his betting
In the afternoon Miller testified to order
ing Ryan's mall held up at 8t Louis for
violations of postal laws after the Chrls
tlancy ruling had been mailed to Johns,
and produced copies of those orders.
Miller aald he had mailed the ruling to
Johna because the latter had so requested
as Ryan's attorney, and thouggt It the
same as sending thoae documents to Ryan.
He denied receiving anything at any time
from Johns that would Influence his offi
cial action. He also denied any under
standing with Rysn, Johns or any one else
as to his official action. After a direct ex
amination of an hour and a half the cross
examination was begun at 2:30 p. m. by
Assistant Attorney Darby, who questioned
Miller about previous lntervlewa with Brls-
tow, Robb, Cochran and others in Wash
ington during the Investigations, when he
sent letters to Johns he addressed the en
velopes himself. This waa the esse with
the decision In the Ryan case, although It
was not customary for the assistant at
torneys In the department to address their
Denlea Arenrney of Rotes.
The stenographic notes taken by Watson
when concealed In Brlstow's office during
the Robb-Cochran interview with the wit
ness were again produced and the witness
waa clotely questioned about his state
ments that be had sent tho decision to
Ryan and not to Johns and many other
statements differing from subsequent re
plies. Miller said the notes of Watson were
not complete and did not give hla response
to Ro-)b and Cochran In full.
When Miller waa confronted with the
atenographlo reports of the Interviews In
the offices of Generals Brlstow and Robb
he aald he did not know that Watson was
concealed In a corner at the first Interview.
He was closely crostexamined as to discrep

Railroad Places Special Detectives
I'pon Trail of Men Who
' Did the Work. "
MILWAUKEE. Wis.. Oct. 16. Special de
tectives of the Chicago. Milwaukee & St.
Paul road have been assigned to Investi
gate what may prove to be a most ex
tensive series of forgerios. The forgery con
sists of a duplication of the official check
of the company, according to statements
of officials. A few days ago, according to
the story told by John A. Hlnsey, who Is
at tho head of the detective service of the
company, a check was received at the pay
masters office In this city, that had been
cashed at an Interior point. The check
waa made payable to "Jack Dillon" and
was for ICS.
It waa on a form similar to that used
by the company, being an exact duplicate
of the railway check, save that Is was
printed instead of engraved. It bore what
purported to be the nlgnatures of the two
officials of the auditing department that
are necessary to make the check valid.
and that of the assistant paymaster. The
check bore the endorsement of the sup
posed "Jack Dillon" and others through
whose hands it had passed. Special de
tectives of the company are now engaged
in an effort to trace It buck to the per
son who originally received It. It la con
sidered by the detective to be Incredible
that only one check was printed, filled
out and signed.

WASHINGTON, Oct IS. (Special Tele
gram.) Evidences are at hand that a
strong effort will be made at the coming
session of congress to secure the repeal
of the timber and stone act, desert land
and commuted homestead laws. The move
ment hae been formed by Interests Identi
fied with Irrigation associations. Its pur
pose Is said to be to prevent land exploita
tion by corporations and encourage the set
tlement of the public domain by homeei-k-
era. There are Indications that eftorla to
repeal the desert land laws will be vig
orously resisted. Senator Hahsbrough of
Nort Dakota, chairman of the public land
committee, waa In conference today with
Interior department officials concerning this
matter. Bona tor Hansbrough believes that
the timber and stone act ar.d desert land
laws should be amended in some Important
particulars, but condemns any movement
having for Ita purpose the repeal or amend
ment of the commutation clause of the
homestead laws. The senator said today
that, he was preparing and will present

"If my amended bill prevails," said Sen
