ESTHER Mil CELL
NEAR DEATH'S DOOR FROM
" TYPHOID FEVER.
Murderess Tossing on Prison Cot
. for Four Days Reduced to a
Shadow of Her Former .
Self Other Newe. ;
Seattle, Wash., Aug. 11. Esther
Mitchell is lying close to death on a
cot in the county jail and may, by
th Intervention of dfaih. ba saved
I from the trial for murder in tbe
firet degree for slaying her brother
tieorge. n ot lour days me girl nas
tOEsed delirious upon a fevt r-et rick
en bed, but not until yesterday af
ternoon did tbe jail physician de
clare that she has typhoid fever.
Even now be refuses to state defin
ately that this is her ailment, but
he admits that all the symptoms of
the disease are present. Esther
Mitchell, since' her confinement in
tbe jail has enjoyed fairly good
health until about a week ago. At
that time she complained of the
Jnriann farn nnrl nf hnr inahilitv tn
" - - - j
'C Four days ago she took to her
cot, and has not been able to rise
from it since. Tbe girl murderess
ia but a shadow of her former eelf.
Always hail, the confinement has
worn ber down to a mere shadow.
When she was first taken ill the
jail physician firBt thought that it
was simply a case of indigestion,
but when her. ten peratura continued
to climb the visits of the physician
increased in frequency.
Now he visits the girl some six or
eeVen times i a (Jay. The cell of the
jailor's office in which ehe is con
fined is fitted op as a sickroom and
the girl is given the .best of ca e
The jailers, who ste the mostof her,
ere candid" in Baying that trey
doubt if she will recover. The girl,
however, laughs at tbeir feare aqd
declares that ber Bickt'esB -will all
rarcverin a few days and tbatrBhe
will be ready for trial early in Octo
ber, when the prosecuting attorney
deires to try the case. The liners,
however, are not so hopeful as tbe
girl. If she dees not improve during
the day judge i f the criminal court
will be asked toorder her senttothe
county hospital, wbeie she can be
given better attention than at tbe
county jail. During her deliiicua
moments, the girl does not make
any reference to tbe killing of her
brother or Creffield. Mot once dur
ing her illce-s baa ehe shown any
disposition to discuss these matters.
Several religious workers who vis
ited the jail tried to ingratiate
themselves with the girl, but they
failed. She treated them as well
aa ehe does the most casual curiosi
ty eeeker and no better.
When told that she was ill and
should now think of the wrongs that
she had done, ehe declared that ehe
was prepared to die, as she had
never wronged nny one. Prosecut
ing Attorpey Mackintosh does not
think the girl will be in condition to
stand a long trial for several weeks.
During her illcesa she has been vis
ited by. ailenisls in the employ of
the prosecution, but they refuse to
divulge the result of their invtsti
ga'ions. St Pelersburg, Aug. li. Nearly

ior complicity in the attempt today
to assassinate the Grand Duke
Nicholas ia ' the summer camp.
That the grand duke escaped with
his life is due to the fact that the
men who used ball cartridges in
stead of blanks, while at drill, be
gan firing at too great a distance
and in their haste aimed badly.
It is not doubted that the whole
affair was the outcome of a deeply
laid plot and it is strongly believed
that some of the officers are involv
ed. ',- . .
So great is the panic caused ' by
the incident that the czar, who in
tended to visit the camp the com
ing week, has suddenly changed his
plans, owing to a well-defined be
lief that his life will not be 'safe,
with the troops. The men were
advancing by rushes in . extending
order when tbe shots were fired and
for a time it was difficult for those
with the grand duke to tell which
way the bullets came from when
they began to whiz by the head of
Nicholas and his staff. . r. -'
An order to cease firing was giv
en at once and then it waa found
upon investigation that the' bullets
were from the rifles of the first- hat-
talion of the life guards, the crack
regiment or tbe ttuasian army.
It was learned that more than
loo shots were fired, but the militn.

that the officers were In the plot.
Boise, Ida., Auk. 11.- Chief Tub-
tice Stockalager, of the Idaho su
preme court, who was recently nom
inated for governor by the demo-
crate of Idaho, received an immense
ovation on his return to Boise to
night. Early in the evening Judee
Stockslager addressed a large gath
ering at Nampa, a special train go
ing from this city to attend.
Two special trains brought tbe
entire paity to Boise, arriving at
8:30 o'clock. A parade formed at
the depot, with bands from Moun
tain Home, Weiser and Boise, and
marched to the Capitol hotel, from
tbe balcony of which addresses were
made by Justice Stockslager, Judge
.Perky, probable chairman of tbe
state central committee, and others.
The speeches were received with
much enthusiasm, and Justice
Stockslager wad hailed aa "the
Chamberlain of Idaho."
St. Peteisbure, Aug. 11. Count
Heyden, in a letter printed la the
Novo-Vremya today, givea the lie
direct to the czar in connection
with the recent attempt of Premier
Stolypia to form a cabinet. Count
Hej den says he and his associates
refused to enter the cabicet becauee
their plans for reform were rejected
and Premier Stolypin demanded
that they become bureaucrats.
The letter is bold and frank aod
has created a sensation 1 1 declaring
tbat the czar is deliberately trying
to regain his full authority by only
admitting as ad vie era those favor
ing despotic rule.
The general impiesti n is that in
driving the Heyden party from
him the czar has done tbe most in
his power to hasten a crisis.
" Two regiments have notified their
officers it will be useless to order
them to shoot the peasants they
have been sent to subdue. General
Oassoff hastened to tbe camp at

STANDARD OIL CO.

O her News.
Jameutown, N. Y , Aug 10. The
Federal grand jury for the Western
dietriot of New York today reported
indictments against the Standard
oil company of .New York, the
rennsy Ivania railroad and tbe Va
cuum Oil Company, which has re
fineries at Ulean and Kochester, N.
One indictment is found against
each of the defendants and in all
there aie 22 counts. The indict
ment against the Pennsylvania rail
road charges tbat it granted rebates
on oil shipments to the Standard
Oil Company, and the indictment
against the Standard charges that
it aecepted lebates from the Pen
The evidence showed that the
Vacuum Oil company made ship
ments over tbe Pennsylvania and
tbat the Standard paid the freight
bill. The indictment against the
vacuum Oil company charges spe
cifically that it shipped oil from
Olean to Rutland, Vt., at a tariff
rate lower than any published by
tbe Pennsylvania railroad or on file,
with the interstate commerce
commission showing its rates
and chargea for tbe transportation
The indictments were drawn un
der tbe direction of Special United
States District Attorney O. E. P-.
gin.,' Bach of the 23 counts cot -stitutes
a separate offense and the
penalties, if the defendants weir
convicted on all points, woulu
amount to $l,4oo,ooo.
The indictments specify tbat the
shipments were made under a com
mon arrangement among tbe Penn
sylvania, the New York Central
and the Rutland railroad companies.
Chicago, Aug. 10. It developed
at today's inquiry by the Federal
grand jury into charges of rebating
against tbe Standard Oil company
that there is in existence on the
Chicago & Eastern Illinois railroad
a tariff on shipments of oil from
Dolton, 111, to points south' which
is very low. Tte Standard Oil
company has its refinery at Whit
ing, Ind., a ehort distance from
Dolton; and could easily avail it
self ot this low rate, while other
shippers wishing to reach Dolton to
participate in the low rate south
must pay the switching charges in
Chicago district of $5 a car. which
makes the total rate prohibitive aa
far as competition is concerned.
According to tbe testimony, the
Standard Oil company shipped ita
oil from Whiting, Ind., to Dolton,
111., over the Chicago Terminal
Transfer Railway company . for
about $2 a car in switching charg
es. Although the shipment was
between two states, it was not in
terstate, because it was within one
shippicg district. The same con
signment was then shipped south
on the Chicago & Eastern Illinois
from Dolton in the low late from
that point. This latter road
carried tbe shipment. to Otter Creek
Junction, w; er it was transferred
to thej Evansville & Terre Haute
road which took it too Evansville,
Ind. It was then taken to
Grand Junction, Tenn., over tbe
Illinois Central, connecting with
the Southern railroad at that point,
and distributed through the South
by tbe latter road.
Ii is declared tbat by this condi
tion tbe Standard Oil company was
able to reach Grand Junction, Tenu.,
with its oil on a through rate of 13
cents for 100 pounds, whereas no
"other shipper was able to take ad?
vantage of the same privilege. The
city of Grand junction is thus des
ignated as the gateway to the south
east for the Standard Oil company,
giving it, it ia charged, a monopoly
of the oil businesa in that section of
The witnesses questioned concern
ing this matter were J. P. Saabrook
an agent of the South railway, and
L. D. Butts, of the auditing' depart
ment of the Illinois Central road. -
