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. Talk with Barton.

According to the witness the con versation then branched oft on to ruilroads and iie explained the Rialto company pro jected a "new sureties department" and suggested that Burton could act us the head of this, being In a position, as the director in a railroad board and having other financial interests, to investigate thoroughly and keep In touch with the securities In which it was proposed to deal.
