WltncHso Before the SiTlnrr FVderul
.Grand iirr. Rave . Returned Willi
Few Exceptions. .
Ijite yesterday afternoon all of the
witnesses summoned to Portlan ! ' to
appear before the federal grand jury
In. the Scrlber case, were excused with
the exception of County Judge Henry,
who late In the -afternoon was sum
moned to appear before the body for
the second time today. It has been a
matter of considerable comment as to
what the' federal grand jury would do
and what its scope would cover.
The government cannot prosecute
for forgery, the reason that all of
these witnesses have been subpoenaed
before the federal jury, whose names
were forged, being to establish the fact
of falsifying the records. It is under
stood that very little time, was -required
to obtain this Information; the
witnesses were simply handed a note
bearing their signature and, as was
naturally expected, upon being Baked
If that was their signature, replied in
the negative.
New Forged Paper Seen.
There were a number of surprises,
however, some witnesses found that
their names had been more extensive
ly used than they were aware of.
There is much speculation as to
what the grand jury will do, or what
course Mr. Scrlber will take. Since
Banker Neal of the defunct bank of
Boise city, was discharged by a jury
a few days ago, Scrlber may think he
can escape. Again, it Is predicted that
Scrlber and his friends are doing all
In their power to have thri federal
grand Jury bunch all of the counts
Into one Indictment, and that he will
plead guilty through his attorney, who
will at the same time make a strong
lico. to 'Cuts cuuii. iy clemency, uitil
take his sentence with the hopes of
either securing: Immediate parole or,
after serving a few years, be pardoned.
There Is another element of specula
tion In the above program, and that Is,
what will District Attorney John Mc
Court do? Will he sit silently by and
make, no reply at the conclusion of
the appeal for clemency, or. will he
op'posc clemency and go into the cas
and ask that the usual sentence, V. 3
passed ? '
There Is no question but what the
government has unlimited evidence,
and what will be the policy Of the
prosecution will not be known until
the grand jury brings in Its report and
how many Indictments. Some think
that the Jury cannot help but bring In
two; one for falsifying the records and
for embezzlement, covering the short
age of cash, which amounted to 112.

S. S. S. is tlie best treatment for Catarrh because it ta a perfect tlocxl

the trouble. As long 03 the mucous membranes and tissues are k,q;t iuflamed
and irritated by this impure and infected condition of the blood CatatTh will
remain. I U disagreeable and dangerous symptoms, of ringing noises in the
ears, mucus dropping back into the throat, headaches, watery eyes, difficult
breathing, and even etomach disorders and weakened health, cannot be perma
nently relieved until the blood is purified. Nothing etjuali S. S. S. fur this
purpose. It goes down to the very root ot the trouble, and removes every
particle of the catarrhal matter from the blood and enriches this vital fluid so
that all the mucous surfaces are 6upplied With nutritive, healthful qualities, in
stead of being constantly irritated and inflamed by impurities ia the circula

purified the blood. Catarrh is permanently cured and the general healt 1
