FUN WITH GUESTS
(Coi.tlnued from Fsge One)
Sensational testimony 'came Into the
Thomas H. Matter .rial In federal court
yesterday. Friday, United State Attor
ney Howell aaked to have the jury re
moved from the court room, while he In
terrogated Cashier Theodore Miller, of
the Sutton bank, on certain question, dis
closing proof. . He presented this testi
mony while trje jury was absent. Th
defense made objertlon to having this
"brought before the Jury on the ground
that it Involved operation not alleged

that, time, sustained the objection of the
Scarcely had the trial proceeded again
before the jury, when Attorney Burkett
question witness on transactions, which
opened the way for tiie prosecution to

The United State attorney allowed
him to proceed and then sprung a re
quest to introduce the testimony which
Judge Toumans had ruled out before.
The Judge ruled that It was now rendered
Cashier Miller Tells Story.
Cashier Miller then told how he' had
come to Omaha and had called at thaxi
office of Matter with 112.000 in notes,
which could not be collected.
"I told hlm that the bank coudn't
stand bis "kiting his checks any longer,"
said Miller. "I said. Mr. Maters, this
1 an awful thing and if anything hap
pen to the bank you and Luebben will
be held criminally liable.'
"Mr. Matter said, "Before I would
stand trial I'd blow my brain out.' "
Preceding this testimony the govern
ment introduced copies of two letters
written by Cashier Miller to Matters.
These, showed the nervous strain the
cashier was laboring under at the time.
"I have stood this as long , as . my
nerves can -stand it," aald one letter.
"For many year I have, helped .you
to carry Luebben'a affair. I must quit
it soon If I wish to remain In this word
little longer." . ,

trial will resume Monday at a. m.
United States Judge T. C. Munger was

Certificates Are Traced.
Seldom do attaches .of a federal court
and attorney practicing before a . fed
eral court and Juries trying cases in
federal court, see such a businesslike us
made of the well known and precious
golden hour as la being made of them In
the trial of Matter.
It Is-a big trial with core of wit
nesee. hundreds of exhibits, and esti
mates of Its probable . length have run
as high a six week.
When .Judge Youmans denied defense
a continuance last Tuesday and ordered
the trial to proceed he instituted sessions
thst extend .from a. m. to noon, and
from 1:30 p. m. to 6 p. m.. Instead of the
usual 10 td 12 and 2 to 6 o'clock sessions.
He also ordered 'court to continue all
day Saturday Instead of adjourning - at
noon. When attorneys today asked to
be allowed to catch a 4:10 train Judge
Youmans ordered court to . adjourn - at
1:50. To make un In some degree, for
this he ordered the afternoon session to
tart at 1:15 o'clock.
Certificates of Deposit Traced.
Tlie government Dy means oi several
witnesses traced four of the certificate
of deposit of the defunct bank for (2.600
each. Issued December 2, 1912, to the
time when they were paid, showing that
Matters exchanged these for notes of
the Iowa Mausoleum, company. Ira
Hoover of Waterloo, la., testified that he
bought two of these certificates from a
Chicago broker. Other' witnesses were"
then examined to complete the chain of
evidence in the effort to show that Mat
ters had had use of this money on the
Sutton bank's credit during the three
months from the time of Issuance of the
certificates of deposit until they were
finally paid In March, 1913.
The defense brought testimony to show
that Matters made deposits in the Mer
chants' National bank of Omaba, to trie
'credit' of the .Button bank and that
credit was not given ' him subsequently
for these deposits on the Button bank's
verse which made up the evening's en
tertainment. As usual, the opening chorus wss sung
In darkness. Then, as President : Snyder
Uttered a few cordial words of welcome,
the electric gridiron was riashed and the
fun .commenced. As Soon a the oyster
were served president Snyder , was Invested-with
the Jeweled gridiron .which
is the Insignia of the president office.
His Inauguration was made the occasion
of all the members of the dub gathering
In the space between the tables-th,.
space which the Gridiron men cal the
well and there . they stood while , i",r.
Snyder was neatly roast4 Into offla.
The fact that Mr. Snyder-has more Uian
once Impersonated Vice President Mar
shall in club stunts was duly empha-
alsed. There was some question a to
Mr. Snyder's eligibility until he solemnly
swore that he would rather associate with
the Gridiron men than with the senate.
After that C. C. Brainerd of the Brooklyn
Eagle; Arthur J.. Sinnott of the NVwark
Evening News, and Harry J. Brr i of
the Portland Oregonlan, were initiated
Into membership with appropriate cere
monies. Presidential Candidates os Trial.
Twenty minutes of good fun were pro
vided' when half a dosen presidential
candidates were put on trial. The Judge
sat on a high bench, wearing a wig and
gown, and the representative of tho
common people was noticeable for an
abundance of whiskers. The first three
defendants were Charles B. Whitman.
Myron T. Herrlek and William E. Borah,
against whom Woodrbw Wilson "com
plains and ssys thst the republican party
has not had an Idea for thirty years.-'
Each of the accuse.! said that his occu
pation was "presidential ' candidate."
Whitman's examination then proceeded:
"What, if any. idea have you had In
the last thirty years?"
"I want to be president."
That Isn't your own Idea. That' tho
Ides, of William Jennings Bryan."

stumbled Into Thompson, Utah, in an
exhausted and famished condition Thurs
day, after posses had searched the bar
r a sand trails In vain for him. He was
verging on madness, according to re
porta received here today.
Mr. Baker and M. J.' Gill of Denver
were on their way to Salt Valley, twenty
two mile southeast of Thompson, to In
Ict some radium property.'
Mr. Baker, provided only -with a light
lunch, hired a horse and set out alone
across the desert. Saturday night be
reached a sheep camp and In absence of
fcej turned the horse out to graze. Th
herse when freed galloped off to .Thomp

find the boras, started 'out' on' foot to
search for th animal. He reached the
uranium claims, but, continuing his
search for ths animal, became hopelessly
lost. ' , " '
From Sunday morning until Thursday
morning when ha found his way back to
town Mr. Baker was without a drop- of
witer to drink. He fd no bed and only
the coyote for comply. A small quan
tity of milk which bs bad carried soon
was exhausted and hi hunger and thirst
became so Intense he had great difficulty
In retaining consciousness. His walk had

"What Is It? Be short, but. brief.'
"The governorship of New York Is the
stepping stone to the presidency."
"That idea isn't yours, either. It was
used over thirty years ago -by Grover
Herrlek, when cross-exsmlned, asserted)
that his Idea was that distinguished dip
lomatic service la the road to political
preferment. He was told that this Idea
had been exploded by Ambassador Ger
ard. When he claimed that It would be
a new idea to have a millionaire In the
White House, the reply was made, that
Roosevelt had plenty of millionaires In
the White House. Then this dialogue
I'm an Ideal candidate.
Common People Aren't' you from Ohio?'
.Herrlek Yes,, but that's no handicap.
.Common People Didn't William H.'
Taft hail from Ohio?
. Herrlek No, he only sprinkled. ' . .
After Senator Borah had tried to give
his Idea of an Idea In a sentence as long
an the moral law, tho Judge decided that
a an Idea was an Intangible thing, the
corpus delicti could 'not be produced In
court, and the defendants were there
fore discharged. .
Clark aad McAdoo Answer.
Democratic presidential candidate In
the persons of Champ Clark, Secretary
McAdoo and Secretary Bryan were then
brought into, court.. When asked to. give
a definition of hard times, Mr. . Clark
promptly responded, "the Baltlmoro con
vention." Mr. McAdoo, was closely ques
tioned as to the deficit In the treasury,
. "In the first place,'' was McAdoo' re
ply, "there is no .deficit; secondly', .'if
titers is one, the last administration Is
to blame; and, thirdly and lastly, I-
gard your question as Insulting. I appeal
"Ah," aald Common People,. Vyou, want
protection. Wouldn't a little protection
cure your deficit?" ' . . ; t
The witness waa spared the necessity of
replying by being hustled off to his scat.
and then Mr. Bryan was brought before
the bar. He was asked where he was on
or about the 4th of March, 1897.
"At Lincoln, Neb.," was the reply.
"Now tell the court where you were on
the 4th of March. 1901."
"At Lincoln, Neb." v .
"How was tho weather at that timers
"'Twas bitter cold."
o Did I," gays Bryaa. '
Then the examination proceeded this
wise:, f -
Common People Now, Mr.' Bryan, let
your mind travel a little further along.
Where were you on March 4, 1900?
Bryan (savagely) At Lincoln, Neb.
Common ' People That appears to be
your permanent home.
Bryan It was.

Common People Let's get down to mora
recent history. Where were you on

Bryan J was in the White House.
Common People The White House. Mr.
Bryan? Pray, what-were you doing
Bryan I was eating luncheon with the
president of the United States: ',

There was an outburst of laughter- at
the last reply. Finally the judge de
elded that all of th accused had but a

Tha Pirates of Politics. '.
The chief musical stunt of the evening
waa a parody on Gilbert and Sullivan'
"Pirates of Panaano,' which was girea
under the title, "The Pirate of Poli
tics, or the Slave of BoUy." There was
- coiei, a prontDiuon jttrate, a
uffragette pirate, a progresses plrl
ana a democratic-re publl can-old-time
Urate. Tha plrata chief, announcing that
tha band which be beaded waa as fins a
lot of political plrata as aver boltau a
convention or scuttled a political party,
also asserted Jhat bo was going to leave
tbem forever. " I have been." lie said,
"the vl tlm of a fatal error. 1 should
have been apprenticed to the corpora
tion counrel. but 1 was apprenticed In
stead to the counsel tor a corporation.
Having discovered this awful mstsk,
he badded. "I feel it now my duty to de
"Gee! exclaimed on of the I Irales,
"your , name must be Wickersham."
There was some merry had i nose about
some people thinking tnat pirates and
prohibitionists go together, and then the
prohibition pirate sang this song. --
Hall, oh hall, the water wagon.
Kill, oh fill, the crystal glass.
We're resolved the i-erry flagon.
To our lips shall never pass.
We have Joined the Hohson Union,
la good standing, t no and all:
No more will we hold communion
With the devilish high-ball.
' At ' this point tho pirates Joined In
gleefully with a rousing chorus:
Don't you think that we had ought'er
Always quench our thirst with water?
"This -song.' said the pirate chief.
"touches my heart. Mr. President, will
you kindly order all the glasses removed
from the table?" i
"Not on your lire,"- ahouted the chorus,
with tremendous emphasis.
Candidate Bona- Makes a Hit.
The progressive pirate, who ' wore a
khaki uniform and a Rough Rider hat.
made a hit with a song which waa a.
parody on the pirate king's song in the
opera. The fh-st vers waa as follow:
Oh better far to live r.nd die
Under the spotlight's Klarlng eye, .
Than play a simple quiet part.
With a modest mien and a shrinking
Out of the country I may go.
To find where doubtful rivers flow, ,
But I return. I'm free to state.
To live and die a candidate.
For I am a ranlldate,
' And I never, never hesitate.
To be a candidate.
The chorus came In strong on th re
frain, "Hurrah for the candidate," and
a burst of applause repaid the soloist
and the singers for their efforts.
'""Then Naffrasrett Also Rlaars.
' The suffragette pirate, becomingly at
tired In what the society reporters call
a fetching gown, warbled sweetly a de
sire to vote, as follows:
I want to vote,
Give me the ballot soon.
,- Then will I find. :
. True peace of mlnfl,
"" '. O, grant me this on boon.
Then from the chorus came these en
Take heart, patient and true.
Some day 'twill come to you.
In response to, which the suffragette
pirate sweetly sang.
Yes, yes, I'd have you know,
I apon to the polls I'll go.
' A Ballot Box Paradox.
Another number to score a big success
wa a trio, which followed the sugge
tion that if women really wanted to vote
they ought to be allowed to stuff the bal
lot boxes. "I am sure," one of the
pirate ' remarked, "no gentleman would
object, to that" Here are the verses of
When women are allowed to vote.
And thus enact reforming laws.
We'd like to have them make a note

Sosae Mssik Center Observations,

Items from the 9iuash Center Oracle for
the edification of th company. One of
the paragraph was to Hi effect that

A personal Item: wss to the effect thst
"Charlie Hilles, ' the well known cam
paign manager. Is In town visiting old
friends from Vermont and Utah." An
announcement that McAdoo la a candi
date for president, was discovered In the
funny column. One of the advertisements
read a follow: "If you fox trot don't
fall to try one of Ham lewla" speeches
on your V.letrola.". . .
Before the Squash Center cttlxens fin
ished reading from the newspaper some
reference had been mado to nearly every
body In the room and each sentence was
punctuated with laughter.
Speakers Imtrodaeed with Sanaa.
Each speaker was Introduced with a
topical aong, to which personal and ap
propriate words had been adapted. Mr.
Depew wss reminded of the ancient
stories which he had Imposed upon the
club In former days, while Mr. Borah
was suggested as a presidential candi
date whose boom ought to be started
Immediately If it ever was to get any
where. The song for Bryan referred to
his efforts to find places for "deserving
democrats" and ended with a refrain
which asserted "I am sure to get a Job
from "Bryan." As a compliment to th
vie president, the chorus of his favor
ite college song. "Dear Old Wabash,"
was sung, and then he was welcomed
with another college melody, the last
verse of which was as follows:
He'd like to speak both night and day,
But wo won't let him do it.
We'll let him have a little say.
do let nim now go to it.
For tonight we'll merry, merrr be,
For tonight we'll merry, merry be.
For tonight we'll merry, merrv be.
we re going to hear Tom Marshall.
The songs served a texts for the
speeches, and Mr. Bryan's allusion to '
lame ducks occasioned much laughter.
There were more speeches than usual at
a Gridiron dinner, but they were Inter
spersed through the program and were
all brief and thoroughly enjoyable. In
fact, the dinner was undoubtedly one of
the best ever given by the oluh, and
every one regretted when the four hours'
entertainment came at midnight to a
close. The flowers were allowed to re
main In th room In order that they
may be distributed today among the city
hospitals. . , .
