Judge Frazer Accuses
"FLAGRANT CASE," HEMS
Jury Returns Verdict of Guilty
in Gambling Case.
THEN -COURT GIVES HIS VIEWS
rie Informs Deputy District Attorney
That Manifest Perjury of Defend
ant Should Be Called to At
tention of Grand Jury.
"FEEJUKY," SATS JUDGE FRAZER.
Mr. Mosber: I wish to eay to you as
Deputy District Attorney that I think
the manifest perjury committed by the
defendant In this case In the course of
bis testimony should be brought to the
attention of the grand Jury. I would
have preferred to speak of thla to Mr.
Manning, as be Is familiar with the evi
dence, but since he is not here I will
ask you to say this to him: I have never
known more flagrant and rank perjury
committed or seen clearer evidence of
perjury than in this case. Men should
not be permitted to come into court and
commit such perjury with Impunity.
Judge Frazer made the foregoing re
marks yesterday immediately after the
jury, which heard the evidence in the
cose of Eugene Blazier, on a charge of
conducting and operating a roulette- game,
had returned a verdict of guilty.
Blazier made defense that he sold out
the gambling implements three years ago
to one Heillery, and yesterday the attor
neys for the prosecution. District Attor
ney Manning and Henry E. McGinn,
called three witnesses, T. W. Vreeland,
ex-Justice of the Peace; Fred L. Olson,
Clerk of the Municipal Court, and H.
Dcnlinger. an attorney, to testify that
Blazier conducted a gambling house
within two years.
Olson testified that Blazier paid monthly
fines in the Municipal Court up to July
Vreeland said he had sued Blazier on
behalf of a client who had lost money
gambling, and that a settlement had been
effected within the past few months.
Denllnger testified that he had gone to
Blazier on a similar errand and had met
both B. J. and Eugene Blazier. He did
not know them by their given names, but
he had been directed to the younger one,
whom he supposed was Eugene, as the
proprietor, by the older brother. The
claims he presented amounted to $1,600.
and were settle out of court. Their
clients were a man named Maas. who lost
$160, and Lewis, who lost $1,400.
Denllnger &aJd he could tell the man to
whom he was referred as proprietor if he
aw him. Eugene Blazier was not in
court when Denllnger was on the witness
stand, and his attorney explained that he
was away on business.
The evidence of these witnesses, as com
pared with the testimony of Blazier, that
he sold his gambling interests three years
ago. was the basis of the remarks made
by Judge Frazer concerning perjury.
Manning Sends McGinn Away.
"When Judge Sears's court convened in
the afternoon and the case against Au
gust Erlckson was taken up. another sen
sation was sprung. Henry E. McGinn
arose and stated tht he had been request
ed by District Attorney Manning to with
draw from the gambling cases as pri
"May your honor please," said Mr. Mc
Ginn, addressing the court, "the District
Attorney has informed me that my ser
vices are no longer required or desired.
I wish It to appear of record that I am
relinquishing them against my will."
"Am I right in stating that you de
sire my withdrawal?" said Mr. McGinn,
turning to the District Attorney.
"Tou are," answered Mr. Manning.
"You came into these cases not at my re
quest, but at the request of Sheriff Word."
Judge Sears said it was for the District
Attorney to say. and Mr. McGinn quietly
Object to Marion Johnson.
Ed Mendenhall and S. C. Spencer com
plained to County Clerk Fields that in the
Blazier case his deputy. Marlon Johnson,
handled the Jury box in such a way that
names of Jurors always came out known to
be favorable for a conviction, and that
he did not shake up the slips containing
the names in the box, as he should have
done. Mr. Johnson denies that there was
any attempt at favoritism. County Clerk
Fields, to avoid any controversy in the
matter, requested Chief Deputy Herbert
C. Smith to act in the Erickson case.
The attorneys for Blazier, Ed Menden
hall and S. C Spencer, say they were not
expecting evidence in rebuttal about
Blazier having paid fines, or they would
have had him present In court to show
why his name may have been used after
he no longer had any Interest in the
gambling games over his saloon.
In his charge to the Jury in the Blazier
case. Judge Frazer instructed the Jury
that it had nothing to do with the policy
of the law. and must find the defendant
guilty if the evidence pointed that way,
and the court also instructed that the
jury must decide if the alleged sale to
Heillery was sham or real. The instruc
tions were full of Interesting features,
and were as follows:
Judge's Charge to the Jury.
Gentlemen of "the Jury: The Information filed
by tbe District Attorney against this defend
ant, and upon which he Is now being tried,
charges that on the 21 et day of July. 1JKM, in
tbe County of Multnomah and State of Oregon,
the defendant then and there being did then
nd there wilfully and unlawfully deal, play
and carry on, open and cause to be opened, and
conduct as owner and proprietor thereof, &
mm of roulette, said game being a banking
game and being then and there played for
money and checks as representatives of money
and value contrary to the statutes la such caes
made and provided, and against the peace and
dlgntty of the State of .Oregon.
In thla rase, as In every ether criminal -care,
the -defendant is presumed to be Innocent and'
It is your duty to acquit him unless you find
from the evidence that he is guilty beyond a
reasonable doubt. If you are satisfied from
the evidence beyond a reasonable doubt that he
la guilty of the crime charged In this informa
tion then It is your duty to bring In a verdict i
of guilty, but it you are not satisfied beyond a
reasonable doubt. If yon have a reasonable
doubt as to his guilt it Is your duty to bring
In a verdict of not guilty.
The word reasonable doubt you understand I
without any explanation does not mean every
teeslble doubt, we 5o not mean, when we say
you should be at!:fled beyond a reasonable .
doubt that you should be satisfied that he Is
insiltr beyond every possibility or every pos. j
Zt does not mean every possible doubt; it j
simply means what the words themselves mean,
and that I think you can 'understand better
than any definition given In the Jaw books. Tbe
doubt must be a reasonable one. I will not at
tempt to give you any definition. I believe ths
phrase itself "reasonable doubt" is clearer and
more easily understood than any definition 1
could give you.
It is alleged in the information that this
man conducted and operated as owner a
roulette game oa the 21st of July. There baa
been some evidence introduced here as to his
carrying on other games where it Is alleged
this game of roulette was carried on. Tha
purpose of thla evidence was only to assist you
in determining from the drcumstancea of the
case whether tbe roulette game was being car
ried on. Your verdict must be as to whether
or not the defendant is guilty of having con
ducted 'as owner this roulette game only. He
cannot be r convicted on this Information of
earning on' any" other game. '
Date Is Not Material.
The date, however, on which it Is alleged
that thla took place is not material; that la,
it la not material that you should find It
happened upon thla exact date. If you find
'from the evidence in this case that this de
fendant 'conducted- and operated as owner a
roulette game within this county at any time
oa or about the 21st day of July and prior to
the filing of the Information In this case, then
you will be Justified in finding him guilty.
Even if you find that be conducted and operated
as owner this roulette game aa charged In the
information at any time" during a year or
within two years of the time of the filing of
the Information in this case you would be
Justified In finding him guilty. I say this by
way of illustration. Of course, you would not
be justified in finding that he conducted a game
at some other time than is proved by the
evidence; you should be governed solely by the
evidence in tbe case.
Wat the Sale Real or Sham?
On the part of the defendant here It has been
contended that he Is not the owner or pro
prietor of any roulette game at this date or at
any other date within three years, and it Is
asserted in hla behalf that if this gaiqe was
carried on he had nothing to do with It.
There was some evidence introduced tending to
show that this defendant executed a bill of
sale to some other man referred to as "Kid
Heillery" about the first of last January, and
It has been stated by one of the attorneys for
the defendant that If you believe the bill of
sale was executed you could not find the de
fendant guilty. I will instruct you, however,
gentlemen of the Jury, that that is not the
law. The bill of sale may or may not have
been a genuine conveyance. It may or it may
not have been followed by a change in posses
sion or change in ownership or change In
management. A bill of sale might have been
executed aa a mere pretense, another man
might have been held out to the publlo as
owner or to part of the public as owner of this
place aa a mere sham and pretense. Another
man might have been allowed to employ the
laborers about tbe place as a mere sham and
pretense. On the other hand the whole thing
may have been genuine. I simply say this,
gentlemen, on account of the argument made
by the attorneys for the defendant. In order
that you may not be mislead In any way. It
la for ycu to say, considering all the evidence
la the case, the evidence for the defendant
and the evidence for the state, whether or not
there was an actual bona fide transfer of this
defendant's Interest in that gambling-house to
this man. Kid Heillery, or whether the de
fendant ceased to become the owner and man
ager of the place. If he was the real owner,
the person who really owned the property and
these games, and you find this game war
operated an alleged in the complaint, then he
is guilty, although it might hare been done In
the name of another person.
Law Itself Not on Trial.
Gentlemen of the Jury, the rules of evidence
in a case of this kind are just the same as In
any other criminal case. It Is not necessary
that 'the ex-idence to convict a man of gam
bling should be any more exact, any more ex
plicit than the evidence should be to convict a
man of any other crime with which he might
be charged, Tou may consider the circum
stances as well as the direct evidence. In this
case It is only necessary that you be satisfied,
as in any criminal case, beyond a reasonable
doubt of the guilt of the defendant in order to
Justify you In bringing In a verdict of guilty.
And in this ca.rc aa you have already been
cautioned In your questions as to your quali
fication to sit as Jurors, and as It has been
referred to by counsel and tbe court before dur
ing this trial, we have nothing to do with the
policy of the law. It does not make any dlf
ference whether any one of you or the Judge
of the court believes this law la a good law or'
believes In Its strict lnforcement or anything
of that kind. We are here, you are here. I
am here, for the purpose of deciding whether
a man is guilty or not. and for the purpose ot
punishing him if found guilty of an Infraction
of any law placed upon the statute books. The
Legislature makes our laws, and If the law Is
wrong the remedy Ilea with the people who
elect the members of the Legislature. Tou
are sworn to decide this case according to the
evidence and according to the law, and I have
the same oath as to my part In the trial of
the case. Tou cannot find the defendant guilty
on suspicion or prejudice. He is being tried
on the evidence. You cannot find him guilty
In this case of operating as owner fz proprietor
or playing any other game than roulette; and
you cannot find him guilty of that If you have
a reasonable doubt as to his guilt or innocence.
Jury to Judge of tbe Facts.
If you find that a game of roulette was
played at the time alleged, but that the de
fendant did not own It or If you have a rea-
- Tjfc.& .'fmeif aV
Eugene Blarler, Convicted ot !
sonable doubt as to who owned It, you must
find the defendant not guilty.
The direct evidence of one witness who is en
titled to full credit Is sufficient for proof of any
fact at issue In this case.
A witness is presumed to speak the truth.
This presumption, however, may be overcome
by the manner In which he testifies, by the
character of his testimony, or by evidence af
fecting his character or motive, or by contra
dictory evidence. You are the exclusive Judgea
ot the credibility of a witness.
You are also, subject to the control and In
struction of the Court, Judges of the effect and
value of the evidence, except where evidence Is
declared to be conclusive.
Your power of Judging of the effect of evi
dence, however. Is not arbitrary, but Is to be
exercised with legal discretion and In sub
ordination to the rules of evidence.
You are not bound to find In conformity with
the declaration of any number of witnesses
which do not produce conviction, in your minds,
against a less number, or against a presump
tion or other evidence satisfying your minds.
A witness false In one part ot his testimony
is to be distrusted In others.
To recapitulate: If you are not satisfied be
yond a reasonable doubt that this defendant
conducted and operated as owner this roulette
game within this county and state as alleged
In this Information, and on or about the date
alleged- In the Information or the date referred
to by the witnesses and within two years prior
to the' time of the filing of this information,
your verdict should be not guilty. And It you
are not satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that
he owned this rpulette wheel or was proprietor
or had an interest as part proprietor In thl
place, then your verdict ehould be not guilty.
But If you are eatlafled. gentlemen of the Jury,
beyond a reasonable doubt, that this roulette
game was conducted and operated as alleged In
this Information, and that this defendant was
the owner, real owner, or the real owner of a
part Interest in the game, and that this bill
of sale which has been alluded to here by the
witnesses and counsel was a tha in and a pre
tense then, gentlemen, it Is your duty to bring
In a verdict of guilty as charged.

Senator Booth Says No Stringent Forest-Fire
Law Will Be Asked.
There were far fewer fires than might
have been expected during the past dry
Summer, and for that reason the lumber
men are not so active as two years ago in
preparing bills for the Legislature for fire
protection. They Intend making some ef
fort to regulate the time for slashings, but
will not attempt stringent rules. They
believe the settlers themselves are begin
ning to appreciate the folly of setting
brush on fire at a season when a match in
the grass means a loss of millions of feet
of lumber and danger to life, and will
not make such a determined effort to per
suade the coming State legislature to
provide a closed season for settings fires.
"There has been no thought as yet In
the direction of such a law," explained
State Senator R. A. Booth, of the Booth
Kelly Lumber Company, yesterday. Mr.
Booth Introduced the fire bill in the last
Legislature. "There is not the crying
need for it- Last year, outside of one
fire on the Santiam, there was Uttle
standing timber seriously Injured by fire.
The settlers have learned the danger, and
campers stand in too great dread of the
Fire Wardens. Considering the length of
the dry period, more of a loss was to
have been expected."
"My Idea of a forest fire law." contin
ued Mr. Booth, "Is to allow fires to be
set only after a permit has been ob
tained from some authority1 to whom the
power has been given. This method would
be better than providing for a closed sea
son, for then, if weather permitted, slash
ings could, be made any time, whether in
the middle of Summer or not. And no
fires would be permitted to be set at any
time unless the danger were small.
It will not do to be too stringent. The
brush must be burned, but the time for
burning should be regulated. The
-rancher's only way of claiming land, and
the loggers only way to protect himself
from greater danger of fire is to burn the
"But It Is not generally understood that
the best time to slash is when there has
just been a rain. When the ground Is too
dry. the fire skims along the top. running
along through the grass and leaves, but
not burning even the larger twigs, until
Jt gets into the green timber Itself. But
a fire that Is set after a rain bums slow
ly and cleans the land clear. The at
tempt In the way of a forest fire law this
time will not have any provisions which
will interfere with slashing' at such
times, but will try to put a stop to the

ARTIST JKURPHY ATTENDS THE LAND FRAUD TRIAL
WIFE'S LONG SEARCH
Tracks Truant Husband From
New York to Portland. ,
SHE MEETS HIM ON STREET
E. H. Goodwin Arrested After Heart
Breaking Chase Over Continent
by Spouse Whom He Had De
serted for Another.
Edward H. Goodwin, a scion -of one of
the first famines, has graced Chief Hunt's
jail because he is charged with deserting
his wife and child and traveling over the
country with another woman.
Behind the arrest of Goodwin, who at
the time of bis arrest was a guest at the
Hotel Portland with a woman who passed
as his wife, is the story of a good wife's
heartaches, a long-fruitless search for a
departed husband, and almost tbe biting
pangs of hunger and want. It is ,the
world-old story of the society young man
who grew tired of his wife and sent her
away under a false, pretext. In order that
he might enjoy the society of other
women. But Goodwin had a woman to
deal with, a woman of rare character and
one of indomitable will.
When Mrs. Goodwin, who met her hus
band quite by accident on the streets of
Portland and had him arrested, was de
serted by him, two years ago, she did not
sit calmly down and pine her heart away.
Instead she started In search of him. This
search took her across the continent,
from city to city, but always too late. He
first met her In the East while she was
going to school and in 1895 wooed and
won her for a bride and carried her off to
WIFE TRACKS HUSBAND ACROSS CONTINENT
TO CAUSE HIS ARREST
New York. - But he was traveling down
the road that has a turning and the fates
brought them face to face on the streets
ot Portland, the wife reduced almost to
the charity of her friends, while he, with
his companion, was enjoying the luxuries
of one of the best hotels In the city.
Mrs. Goodwin came 4o Portland, tired
and weary ot her search for her hue band.
and was forced to seek wcrk In order to
live. She little dreamed that she would
meet up with her husband, but she did,
and when he tried to buy her off by the
offer of a paltry $100 she refused and had
him arrested on a charge of adultery.
Goodwin was taken before Justice Hogue
and the case was continued until today.
The story of the heart throbs in the
case dates back to 1SS5. Mrs. Goodwin
was the daughter of a San Francisco cap
italist. While she was receiving her edu
cation in the Fast she met and fell in love
with Edward H. Goodwin, a son of Ed
ward Goodwin, who until his death was
of the firm of Perkins & Goodwin, owners
of one of the biggest paper mills In New
York. His parents were of the first fam
ilies, a sister having married Charle
magne Tower, formerly Ambassador to
Germany. Edward Goodwin, when he died,
was very prominent in business circles
and was a life-long friend of Seth Low,
who was an active pallbearer at his
funeral. For a time the young people
lived happily. A daughter was born to
the union, but shortly after she was born
Goodwin grew tired and the neglect be
gan from which Mrs. Goodwin was to suf
fer during the years which followed.
"Under a pretext of having her examine
-some mining property in Nome, as much
at her husband's solicitation as that of
her mother-in-law, Mrs. Goodwin made
the journey to" Nome. When she returned
she discovered that she had not only been
deserted by her husband, but by her
mother-in-law as well. For a time she
struggled in the East, but later returned
to friends in San Francisco, for her
mother and father had both died. Good
win's mother had considerable property in
San Francisco and was equally well ac
quainted there, and the social set who
had known the wealth of the Goodwins
was surprised when the deserted wife re
turned. Shortly after she went to the
Bay City Mrs. Goodwin was taken sick,
and while she was in the hospital her hus
band sent a paper for her to sign. She
was too ill to note closely the contents
of the paper and was not aware until she
had left the hospital that she had signed
a paper giving over to her mother-in-law
and her husband the custody of her only
As soon as she was able to travel sho
again set out In search of her husband.
At last her money was exhausted. She
came to Portland and secured a position
and was saving money with which to
again search for him when she met him
on the street. At first Goodwin tried to
bluff her with the statement that ho did
not know her, but when she would not
be put off he offered her 5100. The arrest
followed, and he was held under $16CS ball.
Through her attorney, B. S. Pague, she
had demanded $2500 and will sue for a di
vorce and alimony.
Mrs. Goodwin, the mother, is exceed
ingly wealthy, and It is believed that the
deserted wife's demands will be met with
out trouble. Mrs. Goodwin Is Ih posses
sion of letters, both from her husband's
mother and from a number of women be
has. taken up with since he left her. The
woman with whom he was' living in Port
land has disappeared, but the attorney
knows who she is, and will make an effort
to find her.

stolen the publtc domain and to put some
poor homesteader in the Penitentiary for
the crime, now that the land is all gone."
At the conclusion of Judge O'Days re
marks the first witness, Charles B. Moores
of Salem, was called by the prosecution.
Mr. Moores took the stand at 11:30 and
had time to say that he had been Regis
ter of the Oregon City Land Office from
October. 1897, until May, 1903, before the
deadlock occurred between Judge Pipes
and John HalL
Mr. Hall had some 16 sets of land affi
davits which he wished to have Identified
by the witness. They were the prelim
inary certificates and all intermediate
papers up to the final proofs which had
been made in the cases of Emma L. Wat
son and others interested in the case now
at issue. Mr. Moores certified to the sig
nature of himself and Judge Galloway, at
that time receiver ot the office, and the
first document wa3 offered by Mr. Hall as
"Your Honor," interrupted Judge Pipes,
putting on an extra pair of glasses. "I
have not had a chance to see those
papers, and we would ask for time in
which to examine them. All we want is
the noon hour."
"I think it will take but a few minutes,"
suggested Judge Bellinger.
"But the charge is forgery," insisted
Mr. Pipes. "We want to look at the sig
natures. The prosecution has had experts
at work on them night and day. I would
like to see the papers before I object to
their submission as evidence. The defense
desires to object to them on the ground
that they are dated prior to three years
preceding the date of the indictment in
this case; that there Is no statement in
the indictment showing them to prove
false or fictitious signatures: that there
is no charge in the indictment that such
papers were to be used in evidence."
The Judge, In making his argument,
took as a main point that the statute of
limitations threw the papers out as evi
dence In the case. They might show
crime or conspiracy, but the action had
commenced too late for them to be used In
the present case. Numerous citations
were given to support the contention. The
indictment was attacked because it did
not show by what means the conspiracy
was to be proved and for many other rea
sons apparent only to a lawyer.
Mr. Hall, In replying, said that the chief
objection made was to try to show that
the conspiracy was consummated three
years prior to the Indictment. He, how
ever, wished to show by the evidence that
there was an intent to defraud. Plan3
had been laid more than three years ago
which had since that time culminated in
In the afternoon the discussion was
taken up once more and argued for the
greater part of the time. Judge O'Day,
Judge Pipes and Mr. Hall occupying the
attention of the court alternately. Judge
Bellinger, in ruling on the question, said'
that he had considered the question both
at this time and formerly.
Judge Admits Evidence.
"The crime Is in the conspiracy," he
said. "The means involved Is not neces
sary in the indictment. It Is not neces
sary to hold the affidavits false, but it is
necessary to prove that the signatures are
falj. The exhibit is desired for the ln
foKnatlon of the court and to show that
a conspiracy was planned. I will there
fore admit them as evidence and will over
rule the objection."
Later Judge Pipes objected to the admis
sion of the affidavits of Harry Young be
cause he was alleged to be a fictitious per
son in the indictment. '
"The Supreme Court of the "United
States," said Judge Pipes, "has held that
a title Issued to a fictitious person Is void
able and of no effect. Therefore the title
Issued to Harry Young, If he does not
exist. Is voidable and of no effect; is not
material and cannot be used as evidence
to show conspiracy. In that case there
is no conspiracy, for the Government Is
not defrauded of title and so does not lose
the land and is not injured. It might be
deprived of possession, but not of title."
"I am loth to believe that people all over
this country," said Judge Bellinger, Inter
rupting the speaker, "can engage in con
spiracy to defraud the United States of
land but cannot be punished, however il
legal their means, because there can be
no conspiracy owing to the fact that they
can secure no title. I think, as I under
stand it, that your proposition is that no
one can enter into a conspiracy to de
fraud, however immoral his method, be
cause he cannot defraud the Government
"That is the cold proposition," replied
"I overrule your objections," said the
At '4:35 the examination of Mr. Moores
was completed by the prosecution and
the defense waived the right to the wit
ness. The court then adjourned until 10
o'clock this morning, when Judge William
Galloway will take the stand for the
Hard Wrestle -With English.

WEDDED IN SECRET
A. J. Clark and Cecilia E. Duke
BOTH MISSED FROfa HOME
Anxious. Search Is Started and Mys
tery of Their Disappearance Is
Solved Only When Marriage
Licenses Are Scanned;
"Lost, strayed or stolen." might ha
been the heading for a lost notice Issued
by the relatives and friends ot Albert J.
Clark, who lives at East Forty-fif th-'street,
near Mount Tabor, and Miss Cecilia E.
Duke, whose parents live at 347 East
Twefth street, had not they discovered
their names among those who had secured
license to wed Monday. But before this
discovery was made yesterday there was
some concern as to what had become of
At Mr. Cfcrk's home at Mount Tabor
It was feared that he had been held up
and robbed, and perhaps made way with,
and his sister came early to town and
Instituted a search, but without success.
Tke same thing happened with the friends
of Miss Cecilia, now Mrs. Albert J. Duke,
but no trace of either was found.
Nothing had happened toIther. They
simply went away somewhere Monday and
were married without making their inten
tions known. After failing to discover the
whereabouts of the truants the marriage
licenses were read over, when the names
of the couple were found.
"They are old enough to know better,"
said a sister. "And we don't know where
they are now. Of course they are mar
ried, but we don't know where the cere
mony was performed, or where they have
gone. They could have been married at
home. There was no opposition tb their
marriage. They think they are very
smart, now don't they? This is no boy
and girl affair, and they are old enough
to take care of themselves."
Mr. Clark Is a highly-respected business
man of Portland, and a membe of the
firm of Clark Bros., florists, and his wife
(formerly Miss Cecilia E. Duke) Is also
well known and respected. It Is confi
dently expected that Mr. and Mrs. Clark
will show up after they have finished
their honeymoon, and, in the course ot
years, tell the story of their exciting and
romantic elopement to their grandchil

ENFORCING PURE FOOD LAW
Collector at New York Asumes a Very
NEW YORK. Nov. 22. Collector of Cus
toms Stranaban, at the Port of New
York, has assjmed the aggressive for
the Government in Its attitude towards
the enforcement of the pure food law.
'with especial reference to the labeling
of all Imported products with the formu
la, noting the use of coloring or pre
serving substances of whatever kind,
such as sulphate of copper, boraclc acid,
That the, authorities have decided to
show no more leniency toward importers
and foreign manufacturers falling to com
ply with the law Is evidenced by the
faci that a large quantity of "egg-white'
a pasty preparation used extensively by
bakers and confectioners, found to contain
a dangerous amount of boraclc acid, was
ordered transshipped to France. At the
same time importers generally were noti
fied that hereafter the policy of the Gov
ernment would be to force the transship
ment to the original point ot shipment
of all goods brought here without proper
labels. This was the first intimation the
Importers had received that radical meas
ures were to be resorted to at once to
enforce the law. They quickly sought
cover by cabling the manufacturers in
Europe to hold up further shipments in
definitely. From official sources it Is learned that
hereafter little or no attention is to be
paid to the analyses furnished by im
porters themselves or those attested by
officials of other governments, and that
no other labels are to be passed until
after a sample of the goods has been
analyzed by the Bureau of Chemistry of
the Department of Agriculture.
Several large consignments of cherries
preserved in glucose or "grape sugar"
will be ordered returned to the manufac
turer for proper labeling probably today
and the practice of allowing importers
to remove a portion of a shipment under
penal bond is to be discontinued for the,

INTERESTING, IF TRUE
You Caa Try It for Yourself aad Prove It
One grain of the active principle in
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest
3,000 grains of meat, eggs or other whole
some food, and this claim has been proven
by actual experiment which anyone can
perform for himself 'in the following man
ner: Cut hard boiled eggs Into very
small pieces, as It would be if' masticated,
place the egg and two or three of tablets
In a bottle or Jar containing warm, water
heated to 98 degrees (the temperature ct
the body) and keep it at this temperature
for three and one-half hours, at the end
of which time the egg will be as com
pletely digested as tt would have been In
the healthy stomach of a hungry boy.
The point of this experiment is. that
what Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will do
to the egg in the battle it will do to the
egg or meat In the stomach and northing
else will rest and Invigorate the stomach
so safely and effectually. Even a little
child can take Stuart's Tablets with
safety and benefit if its digestion is weak
and the thousands, of cures accomplished
by their regular dally use are easily ex
plained when it 13 understood that they
are composed of vegetable essences,
aseptic pepsin, diastase and Golden Seal,
which mingle with the food and digest it
thoroughly, giving the overworked stom-
ach a chance to recuperate.
Dieting never cures dyspepsia, neither
do pills and cathartic medicines, which
simply Irritate and inflame the intestines.
When enough food is eaten and prompt
ly digested there will be no constipation,
nor in fact will there be disuse of aay
kind, because good digestion means good
health in every organ.
The merit and success of Stuart's Dys
pepsia Tablets are world wide and they
are sold at the moderate price ef 59 cents
for full slsed package Ik every drug store
in the United States and Can3a, as wU
