Judge' Sandborn in the suit which
the attorney-began on December 27,
I9O4, to dissolve a combination be
tween the General "Paper Company
and' 23 other defendants, on the
ground that an agreement had been
entered into by the defendants in
restraint, of interstate commerce.
Attorney Kelogg1. for the govern
ment, and Attorney Flanders, for
the defendants, appeared before
Judge Sandborn, sitting as a circuit,
judge, and Mr. Kellogg moved that
the mandate from the U nited States
supreme court, affirming the order
that the witnesses must testify, be
filed. , .. -.,
The witnesses then appeared be
fore the United States examiner and
offered to testify, and the defend
ants withdrew their answers. Mr
Kellogg announced : that the gov
trnment did, not care to examine
the 'witnesses and moved for a de
cree in favor r of the - government
Judge Sanborn ordered that the de
cree be entered and be Bettled on
June 16, when the proceedings were

Washington, May xl . Attorney-
General Moody, upon being ques
tioned concerning the significance
of the action of the defendants in
withdrawing their action to the
government's bill in the papar trust
case today at St. Paul, said:
This action on the part of con
stituent companies tf the paper
truBt terminates the litigation by
the entry of a judgment for" all the
government demanded in its bill
and is a Complete" victory - for the
United States. They manufacture
substantially the sole supply 'of
news prist and fibre paper of the
district west of Chicago and East of
the Rocky Mountains. ' . -t ,
. During the summer and autumn
of I9O5 a large amount of testimony'
was taken which tended to show the
existence of the illegal combination
as charged in the bill. During the
taking of the testimony the ; de
fendant corporations refused to Bhow
their books and anawer questions,
on the ground that such evidence
was immaterial and that it would'
tend to incriminate them. Proceed
ings were thereupon- instituted in
the United States district court for
the eastern district of Wisconsin
agd in the United States circuit
court for the district, of Minnesota
to punish for contempt for refusing
to produce books and. answer ques
tions. -: These cases' were argued in
the 6upreme"" court' of" the United
States on January 2, 1906, with the
case of Hale'vV: Henkel, commonly
known as the Tobacco Trust case.
The same 'questions were involved
in the Paper Trust case as were in
volved in the Tobacco Trust1 cafe
and the.. decisions of the supreme
court in the two' cases were render
ed at the same time, '
Those decisions practically dis
posed of the defense in the Paper
Trust case, and: resulted in the pro
ceedings in the circuit court at St Paul

Joseph Jefferson bequeathed to
his wife, among other things, all his
pictures except those painted by
himself. The latter were to be di
vided equally between Mrs. Jeffer
son and tbe children. Subsequent
to making his will, however, Mr.
Jefferson bought a number of pic
tures and stored them in New York
as an investment. Shortly before
he d'wd he directed that these pic
tures be sold. They brought $229,
000 at a sale held after his death.
The children now claim that their
father's will did not contemplate
giving tbe proceeds oi the sale of
these pictures to their mother. They
contend that the amount realized
should go to them. The hearing is
the holding up of the
propriation bill by the
. Washington, May 7. Four white
women have been attacked by ne
groes within the last week in this
city. -Only one arrest has been
made. Residents of the suburbs
are greatly excited, , and many of
the-women go about their work
armed - with" pistols.
Mr;iFielda returning from mark
et ab.-ut $ o'clock. A,' M., found a
short, thick-set negro in the dining
room. .. He said he wanted some
thing to eat.? She ordered him out.
He seized her by . the ' throat, held
her at arm's length and rained blows
upon her "with a curtain pole, Mrs.
Fields screamed, and the negro threw
her to the floor. Then," with one
hand over her mouth to smother
her cries, he beat her with the oth
er. The negro caught sight of the
pocketbook which Mrs. Fields had
in her hand, and, wresting it from
her, ran toward thedoor. :
Mis. Fields, screaming, scram
bled to her feet and gave chase. As
sa2 attempted to grab him the ne
gro turned, knocked her down with
a blow in tbe face, and ran out.
Neighbors who heard Mrs. Fields'
screams ran to her home.; They
found her hysterical and suffering
from cuts and brnises. ,
The negro was traced to the home
of a, negro woman some distance
away,, where he demanded a suit of
clothes.' "v The woman ran "for . (he
police and the negro escaped, bu
the police, flay they will have him
within twenty-four hours. ;
that it would be vetoed unless the
emergency clause was stricken out.
Public land protection was also
given attention and the governor
spoke upon the untangling of the
web wnicb bad surrounded tbe land
ef Oregon and tbe restoration to the
people of 80,0c o acres. Another
strong point put before the people
was the fact that he has made a
loan of over half a million from tbe
irreducible school fond at interest,
instead of allowing it to lie idle in
the public treasury. He spoke at
length of Oregon's great prosperity
under present methods, and assured
bis bearers amidst a storm 01 ap
plause that those methods will coo
tinue under his direction.
Following the governor's address,
short speeches were made by Su
preme Judge Hailey oi Pendleton,
J. D. Matlock of Eugene and Rob
ert Miller. Bach speaker in turn
was warmly greeted acd tbeir re
marks received with the same en
thusiasm whieh prevailed through
out the entire evening.
It is ..feared that the woman's
mind will be permanentlylost. Jt
may be necessary in the morniDe
in an effort to quiet her to take her
to the cemetery to . show . her that
the grave has not been disturbed.
She declares that if ehe is not pres
ent at the resurrection she will be
punished for her infidelity.
At tbe morgue and at the ceme-
tary she showed no sign of sorrow,
telling the police matron that her
husband would arise Sunday.
The police matron, who is used
to insanity in all its forms, declares
that Mrs. Creffield's condition today
and tonight is the saddest eight ehe
has ever seen. . The woman has not
become violent, but it is feared she
might. The fact that Mrs, Creffield
has been in the insane1 asylum in
Oregon in the midst of the frantic
demonstrations of the Holy Rollers,
makes the officers believe v that her
condition may .become permanent.
For a time the police matron at
tempted to convince her that her
belief in her husband's resurrection
was ridiculous and .that there was
no use, of her - going to tbe cemetery
to witness his resurrection from
death. ' Mrs. Creffield, however,
would not pay any heed to the ma
tron's arguments. ' - She declared
she knew, as did all .Creffield's fol
lowers, that he could .not die; that
he was Christ and that it was fore
ordained that the Suuday after his
burial ne would rise again and
show himseli to the world that he
was really Christ. ,
Since the shooting Mrs. Cnf.
field has received letters from some
of the faithful in Oregon assuring
her that . . her husband would
again rise from the dead. The
names of the correspondents were
withheld from all the newspapers
at the request of the police matroo.
A letter from Distriet-Attomey
Manning did much to make unani
mous . the public sentiment tnat
Mitchell should be liberated even
without a trial. The declaration
of Prosecuting Attorney' Mackin
tosh that be would prosecute Mitch
ell as any other morderer is looked
upon as an unfortuoats .incident.
If Mitchell had been allowed bail
today a number of prominent citi
zens were willing to furuith securi
ty upwards of $30,000.
In tbe light of tbe fact that other
judges have allowed murderers boil,
it bas led the public to look with
disfavor on Judge Fiater's refusal
to allow Mitchell bail. It is very
certain that Mitchell if tried wnl
be acquitted by a jury. No m&n,
although many have tried,, has ever
been convicted here for murdern g
a seducer of his wife or daughter.
Mitchell's case is much-stronger
than that of the men already liber
ated for shooting down libertines.
The press of Seattle has taken his
side and created a public sentiment
in his favor that none of theee other
men had. Money will rr Eipplid
for Mitchell'd delenss by aiauv Se
attle men if it cannot be raised in
any other way.

notoriety, Mrs. Cieffield, widow of

Today she pleaded with Prosecuting
Attorcey Mackintosh to allow her
to be taken to the cemetery under
guard, 8o"ehe could see her husband
rise from the dead tomorrow morn
ing as she believes he will . The
request was denied.
Then the woman begged the po
lice matron to take her there. When
this was refused, she became hyster
ical and up to a late honr tonight
had refused to be quieted or take
any rest or food. Her, cries are like
those of a wild animal. She de
clares that if she la not in the cem
