.THE JONES-PATRICK PLOT
MILLIONAIRE RICE'S VALET
TIXUES HIS STORY.
Hott the Lavryer Tested His Forgr
- cries The "Witness Proved to
NEW YORK, April 3. Charles F. Jones,
who was the valet-secretary to William
Marsh Rice, the aged millionaire, who,
according to Jones' confession, yesterday,
was murdered by the use of chloroform In
September last, finished, his testimony to
day on direct examination In the proceed
ings before Justice Jerome, charging Al
bert T. Patrick with murder. The story
of the murder and conspiracy which Jones
-outlined Tuesday he today filled In with
a wealth of detail, and with a coolness
end nerve, which, under the circum
stances, was almost overwhelming.
According to the story of the valet-sc-retary,
he and Patrick had drawn up the
bogus will, and, were waiting with what
patience they could for old man Rice to
die, when a mill burned down In Texas.
Rice's connection there -desired to rebuild
it, and he epoke or advancing 5100,000 or
r?155,000 required to replace the burned
property. "Patrick told me to use all my
Influence with Rice," said Jones today,
"not to rebuild the mill, as fhls would
take out all the ready cash from the es-
tate.' But Rice Insisted on advancing
the money, and presently authorized a
draft for 525,000 from one of bis corre
spondents in Texas. Word of the draft
arrived In New York Saturday, and Jones,
in accordance with his compact, told Pat
rick about It. It was only 525,000, but.
nccordlng to the valet, Patrick felt that
-"- " "
he could not spare even this much out of
the millions that he was already count
ing as his own. "He then said," testified
Jones, "that he would have to do some
thing to get Rice out of the way before
Monday, when the draft would arrive."
Even more illustrative of the caution
and thoroughness of thealleged -plot con
ceived and carried out by these men was
another instance related by Jones. The
manager of Rice's estate In Texas a man
named Cohen was in the habit of send
ing to Rice monthly a check made out
,in his name for his salary. Rice paid him
by signing the check and mailing it back
to him. When one of these checks came
along and after Rice had signed it and
given it to Jones to mail, he turned it over
to Patrick, in order that the latter might
practice on the signature. The next check
that came from Cohen was signed with
the forgery of Rice's name and sent along
in order that they might test the merit
of their forgery. The experiment was an
entire success, and gave them great con
fidence in the greater -forgeries yet to
There was one point today at which it
was confidently expected Jones would
give some sign of emotion. It was even
anticipated that he might "break down.
ThlB was when he was asked about the
effort he had made at suicide In the
Tombs, but expectation was again disap-
pointed. It was on cross-examination
that Jones really demonstrated that he
was emotion proof. Robert Moore went
about the cross-examination In a spirit
of thoroughness that would have dls-
jnayed- most men. Gradually he felt along
the outline of Jones' story until he had
Csat&fied himself that there was nothing
to be gained by a patient siege, and then
he attempted to storm Jones' position.
"When he spoke of the killing of Rice he
called 3t murder, and he kept the electric
chair in the mind of the man on the -witness
stand, who answered everything as
calmly and quietly as if the thing was
,-ffnerely a perfunctory rehearsal. It was
Impossible to shake the testimony of the
witness. He had a memory like an al
manac, and his replies were phonograph
like in their brevity. Perhaps the only
pbint where the attorney for Patrick even
appeared to shake the nerve and .confU
dence of Jones was when they extorted
from "him that he hoped by 'telling hit
present story to escape the death penalty
Patrick's defense will be a general de
nial. It will not be revealed in detail
until the actual murder trial takes place,
which will probably not be until October
next Jones, according to the defense,
wasthe arch conspirator, and Patrick was
only the innocent tool of the valet.

of citizens of New York against the
wholesale slaughter of birds at the tourn

MONEY-ORDER RATE LOWER
Betvreen Offices in the United States
WASHINGTON, April 3. An arrange
ment has just been concluded between the
United States and Canada under which
all postal moneys sent between this coun
try and Canada will go at the domestic
rate of .3 of 1 per cent Instead of the in
ternational rate of 1 per cent as 'at pre,
ent This concession Is regarded as more
important to the money-order business
than any action taken since the Incep-
tion of the system. Negotiations have
been In progress for some time between
the respective postal administrations
looking to the further unification of the
postal systems of the United States and
Canada with respect to the money-order
business. The money orders annually
sent to "Canada now aggregate about
52.000,000, and In the United States direc
tion a little less than that amount The
exchange of these orders Is now restrict
ed to 4000 offices in this country, but under
the new arrangement will be extended to
30,000 offices in this country, and money,
order offices in other countries, being thus
authorized to Issue or pay them. It is ex
pected that the radical reduction In the
rate will treble the business. It. is. prob
able that similar arrangements will be
made with the Philippines, Cub'a and else
where. w , , ,
Want to Try Independence.
WASHINGTON. April .Representa

just returned from a two weeks' trip to
Cuba, saw the President today and talked
with him about conditions there. Mr.
Dalzell. said that he thought there was
hardly a man in the island, except poli
ticians, who did not favor the acceptance
of the conditions of independence imposed
by the Piatt amendment. "But the poli
ticians are disposed to play a waiting
game," he said. "I believe they will stand
out until Congress meets, and then, End
ing that we will not modify our terms,
they will accept the conditions. The bet
ter element in Cuba favorn ultimate an
nexation to the United States, but I be
lieve a large proportion agree that it
would better come after a trial of inde
pendence has been made."

the date upon which the commission
would meet, but no agreement was

BOSTON, April 3. In the will of David
Hitchcock, filed in the Probate Court,
appears the following clause, referring to
a contingent 'bequest of $100,000 to the
Wellesley Female Seminary to establish
scholarships for worthy young women:
"I exclude Roman Catholics and colored
persons, because I feel Introduction in
to said seminary of pupils who differ es
sentially in race and religion from the
others may prevent the best interests
thereof. Such girls to be selected as the
beneficiaries of this fund by the officers
of said seminary as would be unable to
afford the expense of an education at
said Institution without such assistance,
and I request said officers to limit the
benefit of said assistance to such girls
as appear to them to be bright and in
telligent and likely to profit thereby."
Minnesota Primary Election Bill.
ST. PAUL, April 3. By a vote of 45 to

House primary election bill, providing for
the nomination of all candidates except
for state offices and for election boards

Candidates for Bvery office, including
town, city, county and Congressional, are
to be chosen on the same day at the prl.
maries, electors voting with such party
as they -may desire, and not being com

ALL BUT INDEMNITIES
NEGOTIATIONS OP THE MINISTERS
AT..PEKIN ARE PROGRESSING.
The Only Claims Not Ready Are the
British, German and Japanese
General Claim Favored.
PEKIN, April 3. As soon as t the Gen
erals 'of the powers notify the 'Ministers
as to what disposition Is desired of ar
ticles eight and nine of the protocol,
everything will be practically conclude'd
except the indemnities, the only claims
not ready being the British, German and
Japanese. The Germans say they can
be ready at, a moment's notice. Private
claims, however, can be filed- until May
14,. A majority of the Ministers "are In
favor of making a general claim as soon
as the German claims are In, making al- j
lowances tor a iew tnousanas ior possmie
future claim's, although it Is believed that
all private claims are now .filed.
The Ministers' are considering proposals
submitted by financial experts for the
raising of a sufficient sum. for the payment
of the indemnity. It is probable that some
arrangement .will he arrived at on the
basis of the scheme of Sir Robert Hart,
Director of the Imperial Maritime Cus
toms, .which provides for handing over
tlje salt and llknen taxes to the marl
time customs administration and the levy
ing of a public tax equal to half of one
month's rent, which It Is calculated will
provide sufficient to' pay 5 per cent Inter
est on 250.000,000 taels and clear the whole
of the, principal In less than 40 years.
Two hundred and fifty mllllpn taels is
equivalent, roughly estimated, to 36,
000,000. but the total amount of the in
demnity Is likely to- be much more. Some
of the powers are greatly adverse-.io com
pelling China to contract a loan for the
payment of the .Indemnity. It is thought
that the increased cost of raising the
money required In that way is likely to
hamper the commercial development of.
China and It Is, therefore, believed to be
desirable to have the money raised intern
ally In China. -,
Russia's Intentions Toward the Mnn
WASHINGTON, April 3. The St Pet
ersburg dispatch to the Associated Press
printed this morning has aroused inter
est ln official circles here. Forthe same
reason that prevented the correspondent
,from quoting any authority in the Rus
sian Government as a source of the sug
gestion contained In his dispatch. It is
not possible to cite official authority for
the comment that has been passed here
upon the suggested Russian plea. This,
In brief, is that the action of the powers
in opposing the Manchurlan agreement
will make it Impossible for Russia to leave
Manchuria at all. The , comment upon
this suggested plea Is that Russia de
liberately proposes to commit a greater
offense In the permanent seizure of Man
churia if the powers will not connive
at a lesser one In allowing her to make
a secret and private agreement with
China. This plea, It is said, would be
laughed out of any court of Interna
tional law. Russia Is displeased because
the powers discouraged China from sign
ing the agreement, yet Russia herself
joined with the other powers in under
taking to avoid any such private ar
rangement Involving' the acquisition of
Chinese territory. Even if she persists
in trying to force China to sign the Man
churlan agreement, there Is no obliga
tion upon the powers, and certainly not
upon the United States, to whom this
Russian pledge was given, to look upon
it as binding at any point. By the same
reasoning should Russia, falling to secure
an agreement, continue In Manchuria be
yond a, reasonable, time, there, is no obli
gation t upon any power .to respects her
title and it . may be predicted that, this
subject will lead to a controversy of
the graveBt character:
Although no official -notice has reached
here of the reported departure of tPrince
LI Hung Chang from Pekin for Shanghai,
the officials are inclined to believe It Is
true that Li Hung Chang Is really leav
ing Pekin for good and because the Em
peror Is displeased with his conduct of the
negotiations. It was known here that
when LI Hung Chang was made one of
the peace envoys he was pro-Russian
In sentiment, but there was no cause
for complaint on that score until the
Manchurlan agreement came up for con
sideration. Now it is believed by officials
here that Earl LI has proved so earnest
an advocate of the Russian cause and
has so strenuously worked for the sign
ing of the agreement that his own gov
ernment, has felt It necessary to deprive
him of power to further the agreement
If this understanding is correct, It Is be
lieved that an effectual check has been
administered to Russia In her designs
upon Manchuria, for It Is thought the
Emperor of China would scarcely have
acted in this summary fashion had he not
recelvd assurances of support from some
of the other powers.
Mr. Rockhlll has not acquainted the
Government with the exact language of
the agreement reported to have been
reached at Pekin as to the Chinese forts,
but taking thepress accounts of the Min
isterial meeting as accurate, it Is gath
ered that Secretary Hay's views have
formed the basis of the agreement. The
original proposition, strongly backed by
most of the European powers, was com
pletely to destroy the Chinese forts In the
Gulf of Pe Chi Ll and on the 'road from
Taku to Pekin. The State Department
felt that It would be lnexpdlent to pro
ceed so far and Ieavo China naked to at.
tack. Therefore, the powers were urged
to content themselves with the simple
dismantlement of the forts, leaving them
In condition to be again mounted with
guns In a reasonable time. It Is be
lieved here that this project has been
accepted, for It appears from the lan
guage of the press dispatches that the
only'fort ordered fo be "destroyed" Is
one on a point in the Pel River, which is
to be removed simply because It forms an
obscructlon to navigation.
5A cablegram has been received at the
State Department from the United States
Minister at Seoul stating briefly that the
McLevy Brown difficulty has been satis
factorily adjusted. Brown, an English
man, was charged with the management
of the Corean department, and it was re
ported, he had been removed under Rus
sian Influence. Although Mr. Allen does
not state directly the basis of settlement,
It is known that his sympathies were
strongely with Brown, so it is believed
that this official must have been rein
stated. Japanese Are Bellicose.
LONDON, April 4. "The Japanese
press continues very bellicose," says the
Yokohama correspondent of the Daily
Mall, wiring yesterday. "Count Okuma,
ex-Premier and now leader of the oppo
sitlon, declares In the course of an In
cisive article that Japan must assert
herself or the work of 30 years will be

chattel ands Russia's action is a direct
challenge to Japan."

MAt OF PHILIPPINES.
Has Been Drafted by the Govern
WASHINGTON, April 3. The United
States Coast and Geodetic Survey has is
sued an atlas of the Philippine Islands,
which is by far the best publication of
the kind that has been prepared. The
only drawback to it Is that the publica
tion Is very limited, and.lt Is almost Im
possible to secure copies for any purpose
whatever. The atlas la part 3 of the
Philippine Commission report, and Is the
most interesting part of the report in
When, the Philippine Commissioners
reached Manila, they found that a series
of maps, of the more Important islands
of the archipelago was being prepared at
the Jesuit observatory, under the super-'
vision of Rev. iJose Algue. The commis
sioners made an Inspection of the maps
and found them superior to anything that
they had seen, and at once made arrange
ments to complete the work, and to se
cure their publication. The technical
work of the maps -was done by native
Philippine draughtsmen. The maps in
the atlas are not absolutely correct, and
it is stated that the islands can never
he acurately mapped until there is a com
plete survey of all the islands.
One "value of the publication is In the
fact that the names given are correct.
They were first prepared by the priests
and churchmen of the Islands, the men
who were best equipped to have knowl
edge of the names, and who were the only
people in the Islands of the educated
class who could do the work. These
names have been approved by the Board
of Geographic Names of the United States.
The work has been done by the Coast
and Geodetic Survey, whose officers are
very skillful, and who have faithfully
reproduced the drawings of the Jesuit
draughtsmen. The scarcity of the publi
cation may be appreciated when It is
known that only two copies each have
been given to Senators and members of
the House. Rev. Mr. -rvlgue, In the Phil
ippines, was given 1000 copies, and It is
said he was holding them at $20 each.
For those who must have acurate knowl
edge of the geography of the Islands, the
price is not considered too high.

Show the River to the President.
Pendleton East Oregonian.
The most significant fact noticed by
the members of the Chicago Commercial
Club, during their recent visit to the
Pacific Coast, was that the claims of the
Columbia River Basin before Congress
have not received the advocacy deserved.
The president of the club, Mr. Fuller, said
to the East Oregonian that he and all
his fellow travelers had had their eyes
opened as to the character of the "open
river" proposition, and that they would
return home with a better understanding
of the North Pacific Coast's needs than
they had before making the Western
It Is reasonable to assume that upon
President McKInley and his friends who
will accompany him would be wrought
exactly the same effect. They would have
their eyes opened to the needs of the
North Coast, and the strength of th'e
clatas for the Columbia River Basin.
Whatever may be the plans of the va
rious towns through which the Presiden
tial party will pass, let this idea be kept
In mind. To see the river and to be In
formed of the country tributary will do
more to Interest the Nation's Chief Ex
ecutive than 100 Congressional speeches
or a dozen years of. faithful committee
work, on the part of North Coast Rep-
Thjs question must be hammered away
at throughout all of the vast extent of
country embraced In the Columbia River
Basin. It will require years In which to
make progress to the goal. Therefore, let
the hammering be kept up. Some day this
hammering' will hammer away the ob
structions at Celllo, or be the cause of the
construction of a canal around the rapids.

Gold In Rubber Forest.
LIMA, Peru, April 3. The government

concession in Carabaya, when he noticed
that th esoll was auriferous. He found
two gold nuggets, one weighing 100
grammes, and the other 90 grammes. The
gold was found at the lower part of the
Sangabanes River. It proves the existence
of the precious metal even in the rubber
forests of Carabaya.

VERY BAD HEALTH
RESULT OF STOMACH DISEASE
A COMPLETE CURE
Mr. Charles Herzogr, Portland ad
dress. 63 Third street. North: When I
began treatment at the Copeland Medi
cal Institute I was In very bad health,
the result of a serious catarrhal trouble
of the stomach and bowels. I had pain
In the stomach all the time. Nothing I
ate agreed with me. It caused bloating,
belching and cramping pains In the bow
els. I was hungry all the time, but
nothing would stop -the gnawing and j
"all-gone feeling." My bowels were soro
and tender, and for four, months before
beginning my treatment I had diarrhoea
constantly. I lost 25 pounds, and became
so weak and generally enfeebled that
even a few hours' work would exhaust
Mr. Charles Herzogr, G3 1-3 Third
street, North, Portland.
I took all kinds of medicine, but it
did me no good. As I had heard so much
of the Copeland Medical Institute, I de
cided to try these doctors. The disease
had been wearing on me for 18 months,
and had got a firm hold of me; so I was
not greatly surprised when I did not Im
prove right away. I was under treat
ment nearly three months before I saw
any change, but from that time my im
provement was rapid. Now I am aa well
as I ever was In my life. My stomach
and bowels are In first-class shape, and
I have regained my normal weight.
