ONLY BLOT ON THE NORTHWEST
Seattle City Jail Severely Condemned
by Great Physician.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Aug. 17. (Spe
cial.) "Seattle's City Jail is beyond
doubt the dirtiest place I was ever in
6r my life. It is unsanitary and un
clean. It is -a disgrace. It is worse
than punishment to put a human being
into such a hole.
'It's the dirtiest, nastiest place I
erer saw in my life. It is a shame and
a disgrace to the fair City of Seattle.
It's the only blot I have found on the
Northwest, and it should be abolished."
That's the way Dr. Carlos McDonald
sized up Seattle's notorious and filthy
City Jail after he had inspected it last
night with Dr. Lowrie. of this city. Dr.
McDonald was for years president of
the New York State Commission In
Lunacy, and was the man who exam

greatest expert on Insanity in Gptham,
and is one of the greatest physicians
in the states.
He had heard of Seattle's City Jail
and expressed a desire to see It. He

Idaho Railroads Ask That No In
crease Be Made.
BOISE. Idaho. Aug. 17. (Special.) To-day
s session of the State Board of Equal
ization was rather Interesting. The tax
agents of the four principal lines of the
state the Northern Pacific, the Great
Northern, the Short Line and the O- R.
& N, appeared before the board. They
each made short addresses, saying they
, would not ask for a reduction from the
asEcssmcnt of last yoar, but would request
that no raises be. made.. The old rates run
from 57000 to $9000 a mile on main line,
t After the railway men had submitted
their case, B. W, Johnson, momber of the
Legislature from this county, came for
ward., as he said, in the interest of the
public, and asked that the rate be raised
to $30,000 a mile. He said that would be
no more than proportionate to the rate
of assessment on other classes of property.
He read from the census report to show
the railway lines were worth $63,000 a mile.
Mr. Johnson criticised the railway com
panies for issuing passes to officials and
members of Legislature. During the ses
sion -of the Legislature, he championed
a number of railway bills, and In his ad
dress todayhe went over the ground, .he
covered in advocacy bf those measures.
In the Legislature, Mr. Johnson had a
very slim following, a circumstance which
is likely to render his effort tday futile.
The board has taken the assessment of
the railways under consideration.

killed his father, Gabrjel Jarvi. at the
family home in Unlontown early In the
year 184. Owing to the circumstances
surrounding the case he was permitted to
plead guilty to manslaughter at the fol

their terms. The Jarvl petition has been
numerously signed, but the one for Lynch

LACKING IN PROOF
Collins Calls Only on the Dead
HE VILIFIES . THE. LIVING
If Decision at Victoria Is Adverse,
the California Lawyer Says He
Will Carry Appeal to Privy
.Council in England.
VICTORIA, B. C., Aug. 17. The extra
dition case against George D. Collins, the
lawyer of San Francisco, wanted for per
jury, ws concluded this" afternoon, and it
is expected that Saturday morning Judge
Lampman will say whether Collins will
be sent back to San Francisco or not. If,
Judge Lampman decides against him,
Collins says he will appeal to a Supreme
Court Judge, and, if necessary, carry
his appeal to the Privy Council of Eng
land. In the argument for Collins. W. J. Tay
lor, K. C. recently retained to assist in
the defense, made a strong point of the
contract marriage with Agnes Newman.
In 1SSS. sworn- to by Collins, which he said
had not been disproved by the prosecu
tion, and held that If a subsecuent mar
riage took place with Charlotta Newman,
her sister, it was bigamous and void and
Collins could not be guilty of perjury in
denying such a marriage. He also dwelt
much upon the fact that the facts re
lated as to the perjury would not consti
tute perjury in Canada.
Mr. HIggins. for the prosecution, said
the evidence was convincing that Collins
had married Charlotta Newman, as at
tested by the necessary records and sworn
to by witnesses, and in making oath be
fore Notarv Henry, as alleged, the ac
cused had committed perjury. He re
viewed the case and said Collins evi
dence. In which he related absurd stories
of persecution and vilified all who testi
fied contrary to him. was unbelievable.
Col 11 as' statement of the placing of the
name of Charlotta Collins in the records
by mistake was incredible. It was notable
that wherever Collins mentioned the name
of anyone who 'could have proved a ma
terial fact that person was dead.

A weak stomach is most fre
quently caused by the over
worked and exhausted nervous
The power that runs the
stomach is the nerve force sent
to it from the brain through
the nerves. When the nerves
are weak or exhausted the sup
ply of energy is insufficient
and the action of the stomach
is impaired, and results in im
perfect digestion dyspepsia.
Dr. Miles' Restorative Nerv
ine increases nerve force. It
strengthens and builds up nerve
tissue, gives vigor to the nerves
and muscles of the stomach;
this produces a healthy activity.
Nervine allays the inflamma
tion, heals the membranes, and
makes the stomach strong and
healthy. There is nothing that
so quickly gives energy to the
whole system as Restorative
"I can't say enough for Dr. Miles
Nervine. I don't know what it will
do for others, but it certainly cured me
"of stomach trouble, and now I am as
well as I ever was. Two physicians
failed to relieve me. but In three or
four days after taking: Nervine I was
much relieved. Four hottles made ma
a sound man. at the cost of $4.08."
JAMES E. HART, Detroit. Mich.
Dr. Miles' Nervine Is sold by yrur
druggist, who will guarantee that the
first hottle will benefit. If it falls, he
will refund your money.
