Witnesses for the Railroad Snffer
Greatly Under Maiinie Martin's
. Merciless Cross Examination
After the noon rece sij yesterday, Mr.
Pillans was again placed on the stand
and the Oklawaha Valley case was
continued. Mr. Pillans testified that
the road did a net business of $1600 in
June 1921, ?2110 in July 1921 and
$2834 in August 1921, and that they
hiid a balance of ?50Ji).01 on hand on
Aug. 31, 1921. He, Htated that the
road had made a good increase in bus business
iness business in the past few months, due, he
thought, to better bu.ii.ness conditions,
reduction in operating costs, lower
labor and material Costs. He said
that the business of the Rodman Lum Lumber
ber Lumber Co. was' turned over to the road
in August and that it also helped the
road to a certain extent. Upon direct
examination Mr. Pillans stated that
the con4ition of the 0. V. was much
better than it was when it was turned
over to Mr. Cummmgs. He stated
they had spent considerable money on
. bridges and had put in between 30,000
and'40,000 new crossties. He said
that when Mr. Curamings took charge

spent by the receivex was in the way
of betterments. Mr, Pillans stated
that although the Rodman Lumber Co.
is the chief patron on the road, there
are many other people on the route
who are benefited by; the service. He
said there were three stores in Orange
Springs; one in Kenwood, one in Bur Bur-bank,
bank, Bur-bank, three in Fort McCoy and that
these as well as people in the country

press Cypress Company's use of the road, Mr
Pillans said there was a considerable
amount of available hard wood along
the route and that it is being shipped
a little at the time with prospects of
larger 'shipments to wood workers in
Palatka.,. The Arlo Box Co. has a
spur to the O. .V. and used the O. V.
tracks into Orange Springs. Besides
these users of the road there are three
naval stores plants shipping over the
O. V. tracks. On further questioning
Mr. Pillans stated that there was
some farm produce shipped over the
load but does not know about stock stockmen
men stockmen using the O.-V. In addition to
these sources of revenue, Mr. Pillans
stated that the O. V. has a mail con contract

. express contract bringing $80 a
month. He stated further that the
" Wilson Cypress Co. ran its own trains
and paid rent for using the track at
' the rate of $2.75 a car, and that the
Wilson Cypress Co. has to repair any
damage done to the track on roadbed.
.. Mr. Hilburn then turned the witness
over to Mr. E. H. Martin for cross cross-examination.

to go over all the statements made by
Mr. Pillans and made every effort to
verify by actual figures whether the
O. V. was paying expenses or not,
whether it is paying expenses exclus exclusive
ive exclusive of the hauling done by the three
sawmills on its route and whether
: when the mills cut out their timber
(as will happen in the course of a few
years) the road can then pay ex-

tin Mar-tin found a good many discrepancies
in the direct testimony of Mr. Pilans.
Quite a number of figures quoted in
. his testimony were far from corres-
ponding with the reports sent in from
time to time by the receiver, which
reported were compiled by Mr. Pil
lans. Mr. Pillans was at a loss to
account for these discrepancies, but
promised to return to Rodman and
look further into hiis books and see if
he could locate them.' Many of the
questions asked by Mr. Martin in
cross examination that dealt with ex exact

answer from the data he had brought
.to Ocala. A list of these questions
was made and Mr. Pillans has return returned

Mr. Martin's line of questioning was

to keep the road running because of a
personal benefit to himself at Rod Rodman,

of all concerned.
He proved by cross examination of
Mr. Pillans that between 60 and 75
per cent of the receipts of the road
came from the three mills, none of
which will be using the O. V. for any
permanent period. That left only 25
to 40 per cent of the income to be ob obtained

route and it is evident that this small
per centage wiil not pay expenses.
Another piea put up by those want wanting
ing wanting to continue the service of the O.
V. is that it would leave the Wilson
ind Rodman companies withdut any
means to move their logs and lumber.
Mr. Martin showed that the Wilson
company had direct connection with
the Seaboard at Silver Springs and
that the Rodman company had only
been using the O. V. since August
1921, previous to that time it having
shipped over the A. C. E. and a side sidetrack
track sidetrack of its own to Verdun. Mr. Mar Martin

again. Mr. Martin several times seem seemed

Mr. H. M. Hampton also cross ex examined

tically practically the same ground as his col colleague,

into some of the points.
The next witness called was Mr, A.
N. Corcoran, secretary of tne Wilson
Cypress Co. He stated that the O.
V. was of great value to Bis company
in getting its cypress out of the Ok Oklawaha
lawaha Oklawaha swamp and shipping via Sil Silver
ver Silver Springs and O. V. to Palatka. He
stated they had about a year's supply
of timber in the swamp and that there
is considerable hard wood there. He
said there were other lumber ship shipments
ments shipments that his company might throw
to the O. V. and that he would use
his influence to do so if the Q. V. is
continued. He stated that he had had
some experience in lumber railroads
and that the O. V. was in good shape.
On cross examination his testimony
was pretty well torn up by Mr. Mar Martin,:
tin,: Martin,: His statement that his company
had another year's work in its present
location held fast, but .the fact that
trey had never used the O. V. for lum lumber
ber lumber shipments and that Mr. Corcoran
had no authority except his influence
and could not give any guarantee of
future shipments, somewhat destroyed
tne strength of that direct testimony.
Mr. Martin made fun of him for
saying the O. V. track was in good
condition when he admitted that he
had only examined it from the rear
of a moving train and could not tell
hew many rotten crossties there were.'
He admitted that the Wilson company
could connect its logging territory
cither with the A. C L at Candler
or with the S. A. L. at Silver Springs
and was not dependent on the O. V.
Mr. H. M. De Montmollin of Palat Palat-ka,
ka, Palat-ka, was the next witness. He testi testified
fied testified to a great deal of statistics as to
what the O. V. could do towards mak making

because it had the shortest haul. He
said the reason the road has never
been patronized is that it has charged
the long distance rate instead of
availing itself of its short mileage.
He said the O. V. was now in posi position

the G. S. & F. at Palatka and that
this would put it in connection with

latka Palatka is inaugurating. He said that
the Palatka wholesalers are anxious
to get this through in order to im improve
prove improve their rates to the points on the
S. A. L. sout hof Ocala! He promised
that the Palatka merchants would
give the O. V. a large volume of
freight if it is continued and will
adopt the short haul rate. In cross
examination Mr. Martin admitted that
the witness talked too many technical
terms for him to follow, but he want wanted
ed wanted to know why the A. C. L. would not
meet the O. V. low rate should it be
inaugurated. Mr. DeMontmollin said
that the A. C. L. would cut to the
lower rate but that "the people thru

low rate would continue to ship by the
O i V, routing. Mr. Martin seemed
to think this a rather far-fetched
Court then adjourned to meet at 9
o'clock this morning.
The O. V. hearing today brought
cut some unexpected points and some
startling statements as to the value
of the road to this section.' The first
witness was Mr. A. H. Sells of Palat Palatka,

and testified that he obtained large

Rodman Lumber Company and Mr.

-Mr. Lee Miller of Ocala, was called
as a witness and brought forward
some testimony that was a surprise
to th'e court. Mr. Miller testified that

and that the money was in hand to
build a large brick and tile manufac manufacturing

that Barrett Brothers of Missouri,

Fort McCoy district. 'Mr. MHler said
there was a deposit of brick and tile

sufficient to run the proposed plant
for 100 years. The plant under plans,
drawn was to have a capacity of 300, 300,-000

Miller stated that the plans as outlin outlined

there was some assurance; that the O.

said there is enough wood there to run
a plant of the size they had planned

asked, as his voice sank again. A
shabby old Bible always stood at her
father's bedside; she reached for It,
and making a desperate effort to
steady her voice, began to read. The

and opened at the chapter he seemed
to desire, for as she read he seeraed

legal reason that the lawyer and Dr.
Younger made clear, Anne could not
fully Inherit, but her share would be
only a trifle less than her cousins'.
Things had reached this point when
Justin Little calmly and confidently
claimed that Anne's share was t be

doctor and the lawyer agreed with
Martin that it looked as If Anne was

again, and had had the time te digest
the matter, they felt as If a thunder thunderbolt

"That Anne could do It!" Alix said,
over and over. Cherry seemed dazed,

met Justin sternly. "Pm not thinking

that there should be no quarrel. "If

but I shan't be happy unless things are

",B-but the worst of It is, Alix!"
Cherry stammered, suddenly, on the

return to Ked Creek, "I I counted on

"Why, my darling" Alix exclaimed,
