on four of the six counts in the Information-

by . Judge Button In . his argument Mon

of hla trial for contempt. Once ha waa In
the -midst of a humorous story about a
colored Justice o( the peace In Arkansas,
when Judge Button said:. .
"I object to having this court compared
to any colored' Justice of the peace In Ar
kansas. We are here to decide this case
und not to hold the court up to ridicule.'1
County Attorney ngllsh made an argu

few minutes. Then Attorney Btout spoke

during the trial of the "Coal trust" case
waa the personification of earnestness as
ha stood looking the court straight In the
eyes and pleaded for the vindication of his
professional ' reputation. Several tlmea
Judge Sutton had to interrupt and remind
the attorney that the court was not on
trial. ' .
Comedy or Tragedy.
'The curtain lr about to be rung down
on mis comedy or', tragedy, whatever it
may be," said Mr. Connell. "It may be
llher, or, as your honor has designated It,
a vaudeville performance. For the first
time in my life I am charged with a crime.
For the first time my liberty la Jeopardised
by the threat of a fine or Imprisonment
For the first time. In my thirty yeara' ca
reer I am charged with conduct unbecom
ing an attorney.
"I will not g( to the extreme of my coun
sel, Mr. Stout, and aay that 1 have never
overstepped the bounds of exactly exem
plary action before the courts. I may
have done, so unintentionally at tlmea In
the earnestness of argument. But this Is
the first time a court has ever Intimated
that, I was guilty of contempt."
Mr. Connell dwelt at considerable length
upon the fart that he waa already con
victed before the trial began. He referred
to the atatementa of Judge Sutton that the
Information waa filed merely to give him a
chance to go on record, and declared he
was In the powitlen of the horse which en
ters the race already beaten. Then he took
up the several counts of the Information.
Comparleoa with Bible,
"You can prove by the Bible that there la
no God, for the Bible expressly says so,
said Mr. Connell. "But the statement must
be taken with Its context, and that Is, The
fouL hath said In hla heart, there Is no
Ood.' So In the charges made against me.
He referred to one of the counts, where
It Is charged Connell stated that he did not
believe any law he could -present would
have much effect on the court. He showed
that the court. Immediately preceding this
statement,'-had said he had lost faith In
the kind of law Connell presented.
"I merely reiterated your honor's state

ment," said Connell. "Can the court be In
contempt of Itself?"
Regarding his remarks to the court when
the witness, Griffith, was excluded during
the coal case, Mr. s Connell reiterated
strongly his contention that he had made
his objections to the exclusion of the wit
ness before the court had positively or
dered him from the witness stand. -
Two Aaatnat Seven.
Mr. Connell In the afternoon pointed out
that only two baillfTs had testified that he
used the words: "Why was the grand Jury
called Just before election to get Judge 81a
baugh elected county attorney," while
seven witnesses swore positively that he
did not use the words. He ended his argu
ment with much feeling, declaring that he
never had Intended dlsreepect to any court
In hla life.
"I thank Ood." ho exclaimed, "that what
ever charge may be brought against me,
the charge of having too little regard for
my client has not and never can be brought
My voice Is naturally high and In my
earnestness I, sometimes raise It In defense
of my clients. But I would rather ten thou
sand, times pay any fine or rot the reat
of my days In the darkest dungeon of the
county Jail than to be even suspected of
betraying the Interests of my clients."
In replying. Judge Button denounced the
conduct of Mr. Connell In unsparing terms.
"I agree with Mr. Connell," he said, "that
a lawyer's reputation is his most valuable
esot and the .court has no desire to injure
the reputation of Mr. .Council In Omaha,
If he has one. Neither Is the court looking
for a chance to send Mr. Cormell to Jail.
Tn the trial of the Coal trust case every
thing was pleasant until the court refused
to quash the Indictment. Then Mr. Con
nell was offended and every time the court
happened to disagree with him he tried to
make the Jury believe that the court waa
working against his clients.
Conrt Did Not See the Joke.
"When Mr. Connell said to the court that
he did not think any law he could produce
would be of much effect, the court did not
take that tn the nature of repartee. It
may have been pleasant to Mr. Btout and
It may have been fun to Mr. Connell, but it
waa no fun to the court. It waa sneering
and Insinuating In tone and there was a
sickly smile passed around among dim
of the other defendsnts in the Coal trust
case, as though they, thought he had gotten
back at the court by that remark..
The dignity of the courts cf the country
must be preserved so that rich and poor
alike, can get an Impartial trial, and these
remarks of Mr.. Connell did not respect the
court as it should be."
Judge Sutton reviewed the fifth ami sixth
counts of the information, in which only
the two bailiffs swore that the language had
been ueed, and on these two counts found
Mr. Connell not guilty. These were the In
stances where It was charged Mr. Connell
said: "Why was the grand Jury called Just
before election to get Judge glabaiigh
elected county attorney."
A full finding in the case will be spread
on the records thla afternoon. Though Mr.
Connell has ben now practically found
guilty. Judge Button declared positively he
would be given every opportunity to give
a bond until he could get hla case Into the
supreme court.
"I want to give Mr. Connell every chance
to have hla case reviewed by .the supreme
court." said the Judge. "He has sworn
that I Intend, to Imprison him without any
chance to get a aupersedeaa bond. He may
have special divination to discover what the
court Intends to do, but such is not and
never haa been my object."
Mr. Connell will take action Immediately
to get the caae to the supreme court.

A new ruling of the Western Trunk Line
association will go Into effect February li.
which promises to bring protests to the
Interstate Commerce commission from Job
ber all over the association's territory. It
permits the loading of prise packages,
which has so far been confined to cereals
and certain other food producta, with all
kinds of freight, the rate to be 110 per cent
of what It would be without the prlxe.
Local railroad offices have received, notice
of thla ruling. i
The prise package plan waa originally de
signed to cover the shipment of cereals con
taining spoons and other cheap articles to
make the purchase attractive to house
wives, but the privilege haa been extended
until a man can place a amall quantity of
cereal In a box with several times Its value
in other goods and get a rate on the whole
not Justified by the classification of the
premium articles. He can ship a piano as
premium on some cheap article and thus
get a low rate on the piano. There seems
to be nothing to prevent him from placing
a few bales of ailk In a shipment of cheap
goods and getting the silk transported at
a ridiculously low rate.
This matter was brought up In a meeting
at Chicago Saturday of the commissioners
of commercial organisations in the western
trunk line territory, at which John M.
Guild of Omaha was present, and It was
the unanimous opinion the rule should be
abrogated. It wts said the rule would give
the dishonest merchant a chance to get the
beet of his competitor.
. Opponent 8ce4e Victory.
The opponents of the plan scored a vic
tory at the meeting two weeks ago of the
western classification oommittee, when the
committee refused to make a classification
on package premiums. This, however, does
not prevent the western trunk line roads
from naming the rate.
The object of the Chicago meeting was
primarily to talk over the merchants' meet
ings at Jobbing centers, the railroads hav
ing objected to the practice of the com
mercial clubs In allowing others than re-
tall merchants to ride on the reduced
rales. It Is alleged that some of the clubs
O. K. the certificates of lawyers, bankers,
grain men and others whom the railroads
do not Intend to Include under the name of
merchants. This practice haa never pre
vailed at Omaha, but at some of the other
markets. The verdict was that the offend
ing cluba should be more careful not to
abuse the privilege.
Reciprocal demurrage was discussed, but
no action taken. H. C. Barlow, executive
director of the Chicago Commercial asso
ciation, announced that his association had
decided to oppoee the Madden bill. Com
mlasloner Guild of the Omaha Commercial
club says the Omaha Jobbers are In favor
of the railroads paying the demurrage in
cases of - unreasonable delay, but as yet
they suggest no definite plan for arriving
at this consummation. r

With the conclusion of the term of th
federal courts at Lincoln the United States
circuit and district courts have resumed
business In Omaha. There Is a prospect
that a special Jury term of court will be
called to dispose of a large number of dis
trict court cases, where the Indicted par
ties are either In Jail or under bond and
are anxious to have their cases disposed of.
This matter Is now under contemplation by
the court authorities and It Is said to be
likely that a petit Jury will be empanneled
during February to dispose of these cases
before the heavier work of the May term,
at which both a grand and petit Jury will
be empaneled.
Several of the big land cases remain to
be tried, including those against Thomas
M. Huntington, J. C. Reld, Ami B. Todd
and Fred Hoyt. which were Included In th
Richards and Comstock Indictment, as Well
the "Chicago ranch" case. In which
Policy King Pat Ryan of Chicago figures
as one of the principal defendants.

It now skgtns to look as If the hearing on
the motion for a new trial In the case of
Bartlett Richards. W. O. Comstock, Charlea
C. Jamison and Aqullla Trlplett will not be
taken up next Monday, but that It may go
over for several weeks. The record In the
case has not yet been completed owing to
tho nines of Mr. Pearsall, the stenogra
pher who reported the big trial lasting over
a month. It will take some ime after the
record has been completed for the attorneys
of the defendants to go over the record In
order to make out their full bill of excep
tions, so It Is porslble that the hearing may
go over until some time In March.
Bartlett Richards Is now In California
with his family and W. G. Comstock Is
visiting in the east. New Tork or Pennsyl

The county commissioner are discussing
whether the county should be bonded for
