Jectlon and the argument began which
lasted for an hour. In reply to this ques
tion Mrs. Rice will relate that Dr. Rustln
told her ho would release her from her
agreement to shoot him as he had secured
Charley Davis to do It. The man In the
next room, according to the theory of the
state, was Charley Davis, the defendant.
After Judge Bears had decided to admit
the answer to the last question court ad
journed until morning.
Many Women at Trial.
The largest crowd since the trial started
filled the court room almost to overflowing.
It Is estimated 500 people were in the room
when Mrs. Rice went on the stand about
10:30 o'clock. The number of women had
Increased, and modestly dressed women
from well-to-do homes rub elbows with col
ored servants from resorts In the proscribed
district In efforts to gain positions where
they can hear the witnesses. More- than
100 women were In the court room' -during
the forenoon. One of the spectators was
County Attorney Wheland of Holt county.
Dean Beecher of Trinity cathedral. Rev. T.
J. Mackey and Canon R. B. H.'Bellwero
also In the audience.
Mrs. Rice Is the eighteenth witness of
the thirty or more County Attorney Eng
lish will call to the stand. With the time
taken out for the arguments by the law
yers It Is believed It will take all of Thurs
day and most of Friday to finish her evi
dence. Court was late In starting and it was
almost ID o'clock when Don Moon, ambu
lance driver for Bralley fc Dorrance. was
called to the stand. He merely testified
as he was driving to Dr. Rustin's home
about 4:30 o'clock he saw a man walking
east on Farnam near Twenty-eighth. This
Is supposed to be the same man seen by
Dr. Dcrd. F. J. Stack, who was with
Moon, also testified to seeing the man
and described him as being . five feet,
seven or eight Inches In height, of portly
build, with dark clothes. He was walking
slowly down the street.
'Frank E. Salyards, a night watchman,
said he saw Dr. Rustln cross the Intersec
tion of Fortieth and Farnam streets, going
west, about 11:30 that night. About 1
o'clock, he said on cross-examination, he
passed near the porch of the Rustln home
and saw no one on the porch. Salyards
will be recalled by the defense to show
that no one was on the porch when he
Abble Rice Is Called.
When County Attorney English called
the name "Abble Rice," a ripple of sup
pressed excitement passed over the
audience, and nn and women craned their
necks to see the star witness of the state.
Mrs. Rice was dressed In a neat blue
suit, with a new hat, adorned with a large
blue bow. Her veil was drawn over her
face. When she testified she spoke In a
From the very first it was apparent the
defense was prepared to contest every point
on the admission of her testimony. Ob
jections were made even before the exami
nation came down to where she met Dr.
Rustln. A part of her life history before
sbe came to Omaha was ruled out by the
court as Immaterial.
Mrs. Rice detailed the story of meeting
Dr. Rustln at Grace Walton's resort De
cember 23, when he attended- her at two
operations at Clarkson hospital, of their
taking a room at the Grand hotel In Coun
cil Bluffs, then at 714 South Sixteenth
stieet until about the middle of August,
then at the luyal hotel. She said from
May 1 she saw Dr. Rustln almost every
day and that he spent most of the nights
with her. She said he was seldom In his
office and the more she knew him the
more he drank. Most of her answers were
admitted over objections and when County
Attorney English began to quls her as to
Dr. Rustin's financal condition the objec
tions were reneweu, ana tor a lime It ap
peared as If the main fight would be par
ticipated. Objection la Sustained.
Judge Sears sustained the objections of
Mr. Qurley to her telling hat Dr. Rustln
said to her about his financial condition
and she was held down to what she ac
tually saw of his want of money..
"What do you know outside of any state
ment of his about -his having money?"
asked Mr. English.
This brought out another objection which
the court overruled.
"I know he let bills run," said the wit
Asked to state specific Instances Mrs.
Rice said: "The woman at whose place
ws roomed had to ask him several times
for money. I read- bills that had been sent
to htm In letters. I was at his office
nearly every day and there was always
someone there for money."
"Did they get It?"
"How about other times?''
"He put them off."
"Calling your attention to a time thirty
days prior to the shooting, did you observe
any change in his appearance, condition or
demeanor?" asked the county attorney.
Another Debate Comes t'p.
This question precipitated another argu
ment of the objection of the defense to any
testimony tending to show Dr. Rustin's
state of mind. The state contended It
could do this as evidence of how he came to
his death and that statements he had made
to Mrs. Rice showing his state of mind
would be admissible.
"I guess we will save time by giving you
an hour to argue, this question and ths
other questions raised," said the judge.
The Jury was excused until 2 o'clock and
the arguments were begun as soon as
order was restored.
Attorney Woodrough for the defense led
off with an attack on the admission of
the evidence, declaring It was Immaterial
what Dr. Rustin's condition of mind was
and that statements he might have made
were mere hearsay evidence and Inadmis
sible. He was followed by Deputy County
Attorney Alfred O. Elllck. who made an
extensive argument and quoted many cita
tions to show the state could show the
condition of Dr. Rustin's mind and the
statements he had made prior to his death.
The attorneys for the defense have asked
for subpoenaes for these following wit
nesses: Charles Emery, Lee Greer, Daniel

TREASURY SHOWS DEFICIENCY
l nlted States Treasurer Bars Caase
Is Not Decreased Receipts, bat
WASHINGTON. Dec. 3.-Charlea H.
Treat, treasurer of the United States, In
his annual report calls attention to the
fact that owing to the disturbed relations
between the Income and outgo of the
government there was a deficiency last
year of $58,070,J01, as against a surplus for
the preceding year of $S4,2.T6.6SS, and points
out that the total revenues for 1308 exceeded
any preceding fiscal year except 1907.
Treasurer Treat declares that thus It Is
apparent that the trouble Is not decreasing
receipts but Increasing expenditures, which
situation the treasury was able to meet
with the excess of revenues which had
accumulated during the previous years.
"The steady flow of gold Into the treas
ury," the report says, "continues to excite
an absorbing study of the resources of a
country so favored In the distribution of the
precious metal. The amount of gold coin
actually used In the channels or trade Is
less that one-hilf the general stock of gold
coin In the country, owing to the Increasing
popularity of the gold certificates.
"The general stock of money In the coun
try at the close of the last fiscal year was
$3,378,764,02i', an Increase of 1:363,303,013. as
compared with that of a year ago. The
money In circulation for the last eleven
years has steadily Increased, the growth per
capita advanced from $22.87 In 1897 to 134.72
In 1906. Population has more than doubled
every thirty years, while the wealth of the
nation has more"than doubled every twenty
years. There Is legitimate demand for an
enormous amount of money In developing
the growing Industries and expanding trade
relations, but no method employed by which
that demand per capita can be measured.
The volume of currency should not be
based on the Individual man or per capita,
but on the volume of products produced by
man, measured by the market value
There were 2(iti,306,672 pieces of United
States paper currency In circulation Octo
"National bank notes presented for re
demption," the report adds, 'aggregated
tMS,649.20, equal to 62.7S per cent of the
average amount of notes outstanding dur
ing the year. The net growth In the bank
note circulation was J9t.&45,227. There was
1328,535,358 In lawful money deposited In the
treasury on account of transactions In na
tional bank circulation. USO.678,988 for the

Vice President of Standard Oil C'nm

iff FaTorlaar the Company
Is Mere Bosh.
WEW YORK, Dec. l.-Vhen the hearing
In the government's suit to. dissolve the
Standard OH company was resumed today,
John D. Archbold, vice president of the
company, testified that the Standard pur
chased the racifle Coast Oil company of
California In 1900 for $7(51,000. After that
Its capitalisation . was Increased by suc
cessive stages to 117,000,000 In 1906. when
the name was changed to the Standard Oil
company of California.
Regarding the loan of 17,600.000 to T. N
Bamsdale of Pittsburg, Mr. Archbold said
there waa no contract of the loan in tho
city, whereupon Mr. Rosenthal, counsel for
the Standard said he would telegraph the
escrow holders In Pittsburg to mall the
contract to tho master of the hearings for
Mr. Archbold said that aa far ns he
knew the Texas Oil eompsny waa not
owned or controlled by the Standard. The
Texas company sold some of Its output
the witness said, to the Standard.
Production of Crnde Oil.
Mr. Archbold said the first refineries at
the seaboard were not built by the Stand
ard, which' early rnallaed their value In
the export business and took them ovor,
Mr. Kellogg desired to know that If It
waa not a fact that In 1871, before the
Standard was formed, the percentage of
export and refined oil to crude produc
Hons was not greater than today, when
It la only 18 per cent.
"I could not say," replied the witness.
"Certainly since that there has been Rn
Immense production of low-grade oil which
Is not available for refining."
Moreover, Mr. Archbold said, the produc
tlon of crude oil In the early days was vory
small and while the percentage of export
might seem largo It would not Indicate
the amount of business. Mr. Kellogg asked
tho witness If the Devoe Manufacturing
company had not sold oil In cans abroad
before the Standard purchased It. Mr.
Archbold said the Devoe company did.
Replying to a question, Mr. Archbold
said the Standard had purchased oil In
Russia, but not now. The Standard had
Interests In Roumanls.
The Tariff and Oil.
The government counsel then took up
the question of tariffs on oil In the various
countries and Mr. Archbolu said the duties
In Russia were Just what that country
chose to make them.
"If they will let our oil In free they can
get their oils In free here. There Is no
favoritism among the. countries where
crude oil Is produced. If Prance has a
duty against American oils the same duties
apply to other countries."
Mr. Kellogg asked1, what were the Stand
ard's advantages with regard to the tariff,
and Mr. Archbold replied:
"All this talk of favoritism to the Stand
ard by the tarirf la 4osh."
Mr. Archbold salt khat In spite of the
Russian policy of protection, "we manage
to get a little In on ihem occasionally."
"So If Russia keepp out we keep them
out?" said Mr. Kellpgg.
"What do you mean by 'we,' the repub
lican party V broke In Mr. Mllburn. The
laugh that -follow! ended that line of
tariff Inquiry. ' '

One Mill Levy for ITnlrersltr.
It la evident the State university Is again
going to ask the legislature for a 1-mlll
levy Instead of a direct appropriation of a
specific amount for Its maintenance during
the coming blonnlum. Two years ago the
Board of Regents in making Its estimate
of the total valuation of the state uDon
which" the 1-mlll was to be levied missed
the correct figures by only 162.000.000. but
this lias not deterred the board from filing
with the state auditor an estimate of ex

Insurance Department rays.
John L. Pierce, insurance deputy for the
last six years, has made his report on the
business of Ms department for the blen
nlum, which will be Incorporated In the
biennial report of the state auditor. From
December 1, "1902, to the same date of 1908
the insurance department has turned into
the state treasury a total of $f9.847.t7 and
during that time has expended In the
maintenance of the office a total of $30,
540, leaving a clean profit for the state of
$539,307.87. For the six years previous to
this administration the receipts were $198,
70K.87 and the expenditures amounted to
$30,640. At this time there are Mt com
panies doing business In Nebraska.
Mr. Pierce makes a number of recom
mendations to the Incoming legislature,
among which is a strong plea for the seg
regation of the Insurance department. lit
says the work of the department Is fre
quently handicapped by this department
being an adjunct to another offloe and
he urges that It be made a separate and
distinct affair, whether by constitutional
amendment or by the selection of an In
surance board he does not specify.
In the matter of Insurance loglslatton Mr.
"Although there Is much needed Insur
ance legislation In our state, In the Inter
est of public policy, and for the protection
of policyholders, two measures affecting
Insurance should be paused at the coming
session of the legislature. There should
be a law prohibiting the sale of special
