CHICAGO, Jan. 28. The trial of the Im
munity plea of the paskers indicted for al
leged conspiracy In restraint of trade was
commenced today before Judge Humphrey
in the federal court. Louis C KrautboTT,
formerly general counsel for Armour & Co.,
was the only witness examined during the
day. lie described In detail his interview
with Commissioner of Corporations Uarlleld
which prepared the way for the commis
sioner's Investigation of the packing indus
try and during which, tho packers allege,
he promised Immunity to the packers pro
vided they would allow him to have access
to their books. lie declared that Commis
sioner Garfield told him that the Informa
tion would not be used in any criminal
prosecution, ' and that his department had
no connection whatever with the Depart
ment of Justice. Acting on these state
ments from the commissioner Mr. Kraut
huff declared that he advised his clients, as
well as Nelson Morris A Co. and Swift and
Company, to accede to the demands of the
commissioner and give him such Informa
tion as he desired.
in th afternoon Mr.. Krauthoff was cross
examined by District -Attorney Morrison.
The examination was slow, ss the district
attorney continually objected to the an
swers of the witness, dec-luring that they
were argumentative rather than respon
sive. The court ruled, however, that the
witness had a right to explain his answers.
When court adjourned tonight District At
torney Morrison had not completed his
cross-examination and Attorney Krauthoff
will take the witness stand aguln In the
Teatimway la Detail.
, The first witness was Louis C. KraullioS
of New York, formerly general counsel for
Avoour ft Co. lie was placed on the stand
to narrate his lutervlew with Commissioner
of Corporations Garfield at the Chicago
club April 12, ltu. when, the packers allege.
Mr. Garfield said curtain things the import
of which was that if be received the in
formation for which he asked the packers
should' never be prosecuted criminally.
Judge Humphrey ruled that If It were
true that the packers had divulged evidence
themselves under pressure from the gov
eminent it would be competent to show the
nature of the legal advice under which the
deteiidUwtS' aertagv - "-" "
Attorney Miller 'then asked the witness:
"Did you advise your clients as to the
power of the commissioner to compel test!
"I did, fully." .
"Did you advise them to comply with his
requirements In case he should cull for
"That was the principal subject on which
I advised them." ,
Witness then described his meeting with
'oinmlssloner Garfield as follows:
"Charles O. Dawes telephoned to me and
ail that Mr. Garfield was la the city and
.mked If 1 desired to meet him. I said that
I would, and In company with Mr. Samuel
M.Robcrts, I calcd at Mr. Dawes' bank and
vA: went to the Chicago club."

mentioned during the meeting of the Joint
scale committee of the coal miners and op

today. The discussion was confined exclu

which at times was spirited, but no progress
toward the settlement of either of these de
mands was made.
Admission to the sessions of the scale
committee for 'members of the Joint scale

John Mitchell. Mr. Mitchell proposed that
the miners and operators of that conference

tee as guests, who might take part In the
sessions without having any vote for settle
ment. This wss denied by the committee
by a strict partisan vote. Adjournment for
