FLORENCE CLARK, a witness called on behalf of the defense, being duly sworn, testified as follows:
Direct-examination by Mr. Greenthal:
Florence Clark: I know the defendant, Bennett, yes, sir, I do.
Mr. Greenthal: Can you state where Mr. Bennett was in the month of December, 1902?
Mr. Ely: I object to that.
Mr. Greenthal: If you know?
Florence Clark: I think that he was in Chicago, at that time. I had letters from him there.
Mr. Ely: I object to that and move to strike it out.
The Court: Strike it out.
Mr. Greenthal: Did you receive any communication from him from Chicago, at about that time?
Florence Clark: I did.
Mr. Ely: That is objected to and I move to strike it out.
Mr. Greenthal: Let me put my question, first.
The Court: Well, you know that it is an improper question. Why do you put it? Strike out the answer.
Mr. Greenthal: That is the defendant's case.
The Court: Is that the case on both sides?
Mr. Ely: Yes, sir.
Mr. Greenthal: Yes, sir.
The Court: Then go to the jury.
