Prosecwtors of Miller aad Jehas Are
Allowed ta Dlgr Deep for
CINCINNATI. Nov. 17. When the Miller
and Johns trial was resumed today, Jo
seph T. Watson occupied the witness stand.
Watson Is secretary to Fourth Assistant
Postmaster General Bristow and was con
cealed behind Brlstow's high desk at the
time Miller was first confronted with the
charges regarding the rulings for John J.
Ryan A Co., turf commissioners, to con
tinue the use of the mails. Watson read
his stenographer's notes of the questions
propounded at that time by General Ilobb
and Chief Inspector Cochran and the re
plies of Miller, the latter not knowing at
the time that he was being fully reported.
Charles T. Nolan of St. Louis testified
to being Ryan's attorney, while the post
office Inspectors were investigating him
last November. Objection whs made to
Nolan testifying about what Ryan said
about Johns, showing a letter from Miller
In Terrc Haute. After arguments , court
In the afternoon Nolan was allowed to
testify to what Ryan had told htm about
the meeting with Johns at the Phllbreck
hotel In Terre Haute. Many objections
were overruled as Nolan testified as to
what Ryan said about contracting with
Johns after seeing the letter from Miller
that directed Johns to see Ryan at once.
When the defense asked Nolan If he had
not received his subpoena today to corro
borate the testimony of Ryan yesterday, the
witness testified that he had arrived from
St. Louis yesterday afternoon on business
Nicholas Phllbreck of Terre Haute again
produced his register and testified to Ryan
registering at his hotel last November as
George C. Rose.
The principal witness of the day was1
George A. Chriatlaney of Michigan, who
was first assistant attorney In the Post
office department under Tyser, when Mil
ler waa the second assistant attorney
Chrlstlancy after testifying to all of the
hearings and rulings in the Ryan case
described the circumstances under which
he had finally dismissed that case. He
said that Miller had referred to the Arnold
and other cases where the use of the malls
waa allowed, after Investigations had been
ordered and thought the aame should be
done In the Ryan case. Chrlstlancy said
that Miller, In suggesting the letter clos
ing the Ryan case, had not advised him
fully about the character of the latest
reports of ths postofflce Inspectors which
were unfavorable to Ryan, continuing the
use of the mails. In his cross-examination
Chrlstlancy identified his own Interview In
the Washington Star after the chargrs
were made against Miller, In which the
witness said the Ryan rase was "as
straight as a string."
The witness stated that the facts In the
article In tbe. Washington Star were pre
pared by Mr. Huebner of the Pottofflce de
partment and submitted to General and
Mrs. Tyner. ,1
