Dowie becoming . general overseer.
Four years afterward Dowie, before
a large audience in tbe Auditorium
Theatre, announced that he was
Elijah the Restorer. ...
Previous to this Dawie bad mark
ed out his plans for Zion City, the
crowning effort of bis life. . Six
thousand acres of land were pur
chased, and in .August,, 19ol, the
first building was erected in Zion
City, which a year later bad a pop
ulation of 10,000.: In Zion
City Dowie was supreme. The ti
tle cf the 6,000 acies, bought with
the money of the sect, rested in him.
Lots were leased, not sold. Run
ning for 999 years, these leases were
filled with the following restrictions:
The premises shall never be
used for a slaughter house, saloon
or beer garden, tobacco store, opium
joint, theatre, ; gambling establish
ment, dance ball, circus, pharma
cy, drugstore, office or residence of
a practicing physician or surgeon,
piace for selling pork or secret
meeting place."
In December, I903, Zion (Jity was
placed under the control of a Fed
eral; receivership, which was dis
solved a week later on Dowie s pre
sentation of ability to pay dollar for
dollar on all indebtedness. , At that
time Dowie estimated the value of
his holdings in Zion City at $25,
000,000. iugnteen,, montns ago
Dowie began the promotion of a
second Zion City in Mexico. While
engaged in this undertaking his
health failed and ne went t Jamai

thoroughly familiar.
Six years of denominational ac
tivity w aried Dowie, who longed
for a wider field of operations. He
forsook h's church in 1887 and went
to Melbourne, where he set up a
Free Christian Tabernacle, the first
of Us kind, and organized a divine
healing association, which after

Will Be Taken to Caldwell to Tes
tify in the Trial of Moyer, Hay

Wallace, Idaho, March 8. "Just
That is Steve Adams' view of the
iemieeal of the jury which declared
aet evening it was unable to decide
whether he was guilty or innocent
of the murder of Fred Tyler.
Adams appeared in court this
morning, waived the right to ask
for release on bond and returned to
jail. The state aesertB that the
caee will be tried again, presuma
bly at the October term of court
next, but the opinion expressed
here is that he will be tried on this
charge again. He will probably be
taken to Caldwell, Idaho, in a few
days, to testify in the trial of Moy
er, Haywood and Pettibone, accus
ed of the murder of ex-Governor
Stunenberg, and in caee they are
convicted ne may ne tried later as
an accessory to this assassination.
Should they be released, the idea
is advanced here that Adams will
be tried for the murder of Settle
Boule, rather than tried again for
the murder of Tyler.
The trial just concluded is estr
mated to have cost this county
about $25,000, io which must be
added the expense borne by the state

. The prosecution declares Adama
will be tried again for' the murder
of Tyler, bat not - sooner : than tha
next term of court, which begina
in October. Attorneys for the . de
fense openly state their belief that
Adams will never be tried again oa
the Tyler charge. 1 They point, to
the expense to the county of Sho
shone, estimated to reach $25,000
for this trial alone, and say" that
prosecution will, in their opinion,
ultimately announce that the case;
is dropped.
Practically every one in ;Wallace
was prepared for a hung jury, and
the . news which was spread by
newspaper extras came aB no sur
prise, ibe chief interest was in
earning how each juryman voted.
Attorney Hawley, leading coun
sel for the state, made the predic
tion immediately after tbe jury
went out, that it would hang. At

The jury for many hours stood at

in referring to the request made by

The friends of Adams are delight

tqual to an acquittal. As this is a
mining town, the general sentiment
seems to favor Adams.
