.Portland, Ore., Oot. 4 Willard
N. Jones, Thaddeus S. Potter and
IraC Wade,' charged jointly with
having conspired to defraud the
government of public land, are
now on trial in the Federal court
before a; jury thst was Belected
with but little difficulty yesterday
It is a' case that was easy of com
mencement, though it will be bit
terly contested by M. L. Pipes and
S. B. Huston, who represent Jones
and. Potter, atd by J. R, Wyatt of
Albany, attorney for Wade. - Yes
terday afternoon the testimony of
John L; Wells, the first witness for
the government was repeatedly in
terrupted by Mr. Pipes and Mr.
Huston, who desired to nter, arid
argue pleas covering: the -different
lines of the testimony about to be
offered by 1 the governmed. Mr.
Pipes said that if he made all his
objections the casp, though at first
eIow would proceed more rapidly
once the techmcil points were out
of the way. -
The Jones case is remarkable for
one thing, the shortness of the time
taken by the attorneys for present
ing their cases to tha -jury. Mr.
Heney .occupied about 20 minutes
in his presentation while Mr. Hus
ton for the defense was even more
In opening his" address to the
jury Mr.; Heney said that the gov
ernment would prove that before
the Siletz Indian reservation had
been opened to entry in 1905, prac
tically all the agricultural lands
had been allotted to the Indians
so that what remained was for the
most part valuable alone for its
heavy timber. - . -
The government would show, Mr
Heney said, that the defendant
Jonss had concsived the idea of
acquiring this timberland by pro
curing a number of soldi-rj' widows
to file and prove up, as under the
law they did not have to reside
upon land. "
In pursuance oi this fcheme, ac
cording to Mr. Heney, Jones and
Putter, who had alto been one of
the originators of tha plan, , hired
Joho-L. Well?, an insurance and
real estate man of the East side,
he himself an ex-soldier, to hunt
up the required number of widows.
For this work Wells was to receive
a commission of $5 a head.
It would be further proved, Mr.
Heney said, that the defendants
had prepared a written contract,
which was given to the womeu to
sign. By this agreement they were
to pay Jones a location fee of $185.
In addition they were to pay $100
for clearing the land and $175 for
cultivating it. They were to be
charged in all $420 for expense" of
all kinds. This money was to
furnished by Jones, the claimants
mortgaging their claims to th :
fendant for $200 more than
amounts advanced them. '
$200 was the profit made by the
claimants. f y .
Mr. Jones soon found," so ; Mr.
Heney said, that there were not
enough widows, so Wells was again
caller into requisition and told to
hunt up ex-soldiers", who had.serv
ed two years or longer. These men
under the law could receive resid
ence credit from the department
for a length of time equivalent to
their service in the army.
The government would show
further, LMr. Heney announced,
that some of the men who had filed
upon the land had never been on
the claims and that none of them
had resided upon the claims as de
manded by law. Oh the contrary
Jones would round up the band
every &ix months and take them to
their claims, paying all expenses
of traveling, in order that the claim
ants might be able to swear that
they had not been absent from the
land for six months. It would al
so be shown that Potter had gone
to the land office with the claimants
and had coached them in. their ans
ewers, eo that no mistake would be
made in their filings. -
yM. Hasten on behalf of the de
fense, epoke but a few minutes for
bis client?. ; He contended that the
defendants had a right to make the
contracts with the men and women
Jones had no criminal connection
as all the interest he had in the
plan was the location fees which
he. secured from the people. The
attorney did not think that Wade
was connected with the case by any
f At the conclusion of Mr." Hus
ton's address the prosecution open
ed the trial by calling John L.
Wells to the stand. Wells is the
man who drummed up the'claim
ahts. He testified ' that Potter
came to his office one day and told
bim that Jones wished to see him.
He had called upon Mr. Jones and
the scheme to enlist the euprort of
the widows was explained to bim.
He bad then gone out' and secured
a'number of women.. When the
supply of these ran short Mr." Wells
again was called by the defendants
aod told to hunt .'- up veterans
which he did.. :'"',::r
The witneEB told of his trips to
Toledo with the other men who fil
ed. He said a number ot the men
procured by him were taken to the
land office to file. Some time. af
ter they went to Toledo, and from
there by teims to the claims, by
team. The visit at the claims was
very shoit. They had stayed in the
woods one night, sleeping out in
the open, and returning to Port
land on the folio wiog morning. -
The jury was chosen in a very
rapid manner, there being bat a
few who were not acceptable to the
the attorneys for the one side or the
other. There was a little difficulty
ever the selection of the first man,
Frank E. McEldowney, a farmer
from Portland. He declared him
self: prejudiced and was challeng
ed for cause by the., defense. The
prosecution asked bim a few ques
tions"aridrthe"rrJudge Hunt took a
hand, after which he pronounced
the man qualified to serve. The
prosecution submitted to the. rul
ing of the court without offering to
use a peremptory challenge.
The other members of the jury
as fioally selected are, C. P. Bishop
merchant, Salem; G. W. " McLane,
farmer, Lyons; L. C. Marshall,
clerk, Albany; Henry Hewitts in

Lincoln, Neb. Oit. 4. Dressed
in trousers and otherwise disguised
as a man, pretty Mrs. James Gif
ford a young woman of 22, was
captured last night at Hallam,
Nebraska, trying to rob a store.
According to the woman's story,
her career. as a bandit was a short
one. She came to Nebraska " three
weeks ago and bad successfully
held up stores in three different
towns, getting away with a total
of about $1i0. Her husband ac
companied her to keep watch and
warn her if offispr' " came in sight.
At uanarr sue watcnea an op-portun'ty-
nd entered the store
when nobody was in sight but the
clerfc. Waiting up to - bim in a
business-like way, she pointed the
gun at his face and asked for the
cash in the till. Her coming how
ever was anticipated and as the
clerk walked to the till an officer
stepped out and disarmed her.
' It appears that she had been fol
lowed from the town of Cortland,
where she operated a few nights
ago, and when she arrived at Hal
lam an officer was immediately
placed in the only store in town to
await her. Her husband was ar
rested and brought to Lincoln.
