iThe attorneys for Sidney Boll, the
highwayman, now serving a sixty-year

that the indictments on which Bell was
guilty were not good, having been al
lowed to lapse and the cases to drop
from the calendar. Tills was due to a
murder charge which was hanging over
the prisoner, on which it was expected
ta evcure conviction. The prosecution
was disappointed in this, and then
charges of rohlery wore taken up and
pressed. It is behoved among lawyers
that the conviction of Bell en a charge
of murder would be extremely difficult,
so that if the technical point is sustained
the footpad will be at liberty in the near

Governor Hughes of Arizona has hod
an important conference with Minister
Komero oi Mexico touching lmprov
ments of the Colorado river, which
would add to its importance as a chan
nel of commerce. The Governor pre
sented to Romero that the Colorado was
the second largest stream of the Pacific
Coast. He suid with secure jetties at its
mouth and with some dredging along
the course of the stream it could be
made navigable 000 miles, far up into
Arizona and Nevada, tapping rich min
eral deposits in the mountains and a
tine agricultural and horticultural re
gion in the lower country. He pointed
out that Mexico along the Gulf of Cali
fornia possesses large forests of one tim
ber and immense deposits of coal, in
both of which the Southwestern portion
of the United States is deficient. Gov
ernor Hughes thinks the government of
the United Stales would make I tie im
provements necessary within its bound
aries if the Mexican government would
undertake to do as much within the Mex
ican territory. The lower 150 miles of
the river is in Mexico. Minister Komero
was very much Impressed with the
representation made by the Governor.
He said he would recommend that hia
fovernment give the matter attention,
le thought the best way to proceed
would be for the two governments to
join in the apointment of a cotnmiesiou
to investigate the entire question.

fraudulent. The detained Chinese took
tlio matter Into court, where it is still
pending under writs of habeas corpus.
and further made complaints to the
Minister, who brought the matter to the
attention of tho State Department.

'aiiiHle for information, and received a
