Counsel for Thomas H. Matters,

President Luebben of the First Na
tlonal bank of Sutton to issue cer

Theodore Miller kept out of the trial.
United ' States Attorney Hdwell ques

on the various certificates or aeposu
which the government Is offering In evi

Attorney Vllson for the ' defenie. ' . ' On
the first question which Mr. Howell asked
the cashier and which had t tTf"rtth one
of these alleged false entries, Mr. Wilson
made a lengthy speech In which - he
argued thatth bank's books; having
been admitted as evidence, must be con
sidered to be witnesses, even as though
they were' human witnesses. As such
tbey must be presumed to be telling the
truth1 and If the government shows, that
these books contain false entries, the
books thereby prove themselves to be
false witnesses and not to be believed.

At another time when Mr. Howell In
questioning the witness referred to "the
two top lines on the, page," counsel for
the defense objected besauae "there can
not be two top lines on a page.'1 Mr.
Howell amended hla question by direct

line of the page and the line Immediately
below it," which waa satisfactory.

Mr. Howell asserted that- the defense
had' secured an order, from Judge. Morris
that it . should have . free ' access to ail

of the world at peace waits upon this
government," Senator La . Folletts told
the enat today, speaking on his reso
lution to authorise th president to call
a conference of all neutral powers to co
operate In restoring peace. In Europe.
"Neutral rights demand a clearer defini
tion. Delay Is filled with menace," he
"Who can say at what moment the dark
curtain that veils so much of the- struggle
tnay be swept aside by ' uncontrolled
forces that will fasten upon th peaceful
nations and draw the whole world Into
the vortex of war?
"Great Britain "assumes tha right to fly
our flsg for self-protection. We are
warned) that Germany may not be able
to determine whether our flag designates
a neutral or an enemy. England from
day to day enlarges its Hat of contraband
and Imposes condition and exactions
which well nigh paralyse commerce.
Germany declare 'war soncs' to block
ed English port.
"There are two or three proposition
which the highest authorities agree are
fundamental to permanent peace. The
first, perhaps, 1 the limitation of arma
ment, and the nationalization of the
manufacture of all equipment and aup.

naval purpose. Another Is the prohibi
