Sir, Pliant suddenly replied:

Lists Honest. ,
"I tried to mako the lists absolutely
noncst and square. I made them up witn
the assistance of my blockmoi, and 1
have every reason to believe the iniorma
tlon they gave me about tho Jralcra Is
correct. I could have given you much
more on the lists, but I cut out x lot bo
cause I was not quite suro of It and 1
jvantcd to make It absolutely sure,"
Attorney Edward I. Orosvcrior, for th
government, opened tho hearing In tno
iiiornlng by placing on record a vigorous
objection to the manner In which trie
general agents of tho International Har
vester company have prepared he lists)
of dealers in their territory an exhlo.ts
In tho case. Ho called attention to M
fact that tho names of tho dealers uro
Jiot arranged In alphabetical order, a'iti
that tho pages uro not numborco. He
lias been having a great deal of dlttl
cutty in finding names he wants In the
great unorganised lists for purposes uf
cross-examination. Iater tho wltne.s

Tho fact that the international Har
vester company has had its binders and
harvesting machinery on the floors of
Implement dealers for years, has been no
particular advantage to tho cotnpahy In
Introducing Its various new lines of Im

brought out In Mr. Pilant's testimony
Thursday. Pliant was on the witness
stand during a largo part of the after

lie testified that somo time after the
company was formed and after it had
taken over the Mccormick, Deerlng,
Champion and Piano binders, It began
manufacturing and selling successively
wagons, engines, spreaders, haying im
plements, feed grinders, Ullage Imple

"Now, after you began selling theso
new lines," asked tho prosecution, "did
tho largo per cent or control of tho har
vester business assist you In making
eulea to dealers in theso new lines?"
"Do you mean to testify that your
large business tn harvesting machinery
has been of no advantage to you at all
In placing tho n6w lines?"
'The only advantage," tho witness re
plied, ''Is that the old Hues bctiig there
gives us un opportunity to try to sell
our (low goods. It the dealer didn't wunt
them ho wouldn't buy them If ho had
all the binders on tho floor. That has
been my experience, and I have tried
