srntntlon of Testimony and
Case Mar Go to Jnrr
This Week.
ST. I.OT'18. Nov. 22. Rapid progress hss
been made in the trial of Vntted States
Senator Burton of Kansas, charged with
rendering services as an attorney before
the Postoffice department at Washington
In violation of the federal statutes, and It
now appenrs probable the case will go to
the Jury not later than Saturday.
The government has taken several short
cuta In Its presentation of testimony and
Judge Vandeventer has saved time by his
sharp, decisive rulings and his admonitions
to counael to confine themselves strictly to
the matters at Issue.
When court opened today Judge Vande
venter announced that he overruled the ob
jection made by the government late yes
terday to certain questions asked by coun
sel for the defense In the cross-examination
of Witness Thomas B. Harlan, former
attorney for the Rialto Orain and Securi
ties company, who was placed on the stand
by the prosecution.
At Senator Burton's former trial Harlan
was a witness for the defense and the ob
ject of Attorney I.ehmann's cross-examination
was to bring out the testimony elicited
from Mr. Harlan at the former trial, when
a witness for the defense. Attorney Leh
mann took up the letter written by Harlan
to Senator Burton accepting the latter's
proposition to act as attorney for the Rialto
company for a salary of 5i0 a month,
which was Introduced yesterday and ques
tioned the witness regarding the events
leading up to the writing of the letter.
This was the point on which the govern
ment based Its objections.

He .aid Senator Morton had little time at

over matters on the train, which proposi
tion was accepted.
Witness said he described to Senator Bur

company was Involved through the ani
mosity . of a former business partner of
Major Dennis, president of the Rialto com-
puny, who the witness declared, had caused j

civil suits, twenty I

and iie explained the Rialto company pro

suggested that Burton could act us the

Thirty years ago our present constitu

well enough for the eight-year-old Infant
commonwealth whose people, then few In
number, were struggling against poverty
and famine. But that constitution Is as

able regulations with respect to the ad-
ministration of law. as are swaddling
clothes to a full-grown man.
