SAYS ATTENDANCE 89.286.
SEATTLE. Wash.. June 1. -The
first day's attendance at the Expo
sition, according to figures Riven out
by the management tonight, was
R9.2SR. The greater part of this
was In the daytime, more than 79.OU0
persons passing through tbe turnstiles
hetween the opening hour and 6
o'clock tnnlght. The night attend
ance was cut down by a severe rain
storm. SEATTLE), Wash., June 1. (Staff Cor
respondence.) Seattle came into her own
today, and in spite ot threatening skies
opened the exhibition that has been the
dream of her existence for the past two
years. Aside from this. Seattle demon
strated to the world that she had be
come a full fledged city, capable of caring
for exposition crowds as well as airy of
the more Eastern cities that have wrest
led with !he problem. In fact Seattle
surprised herself, as well as her thou
sands of visitors today, and acquitted her
self well in everything. ,
Crowds on (.rounds Early.
The gates at the fairgrounds opened "at
g o'clock this morning and there was a
crowd on hand to rush in them, though
there was nothing on the day's pro
gramme until 10 o'clock. But the crowd
didn't care, it surged through the gates
at a rate that promised well for the at
tendance figures, and it kept on surging
in Just that way for the rest of the day.
At 10 o'clock the military and naval
pageant commenced, soldiers and sailors
ot the Union as well as the Washington
guardsmen acting as escorts to the Kx
posltlon officers and visiting naval Japa
nese officers in a parade about the
grounds. The parade pleased all. and
passed the reviewing-stand in the best
Amphitheater Filled With Gaiety.
Long before this, however, the crowds
had flocked to the amphitheater w here the
foimal opening exercises were to be held.
Its tiers of seats, se-t on the natural
slope of a wide gulch in the midst of
wild forest on all sides, were soon packed
with men and women all dressed in Sum
mer attire and most of them carrying
American flags, which they waved on the
slightest provocation, turning the great
amphitheater into a mass of blending
colors. Estimates by those seated in the
lower portion where the full crowd could
be seen, ranged from 17.500 to 26.0(h) as to
the number present. The former num
ber Is probably more nearly correct.
Crowd Is Over-Anxious.
Regardless of the number, the crowd at
the amphitheater was In no sense a
serious one. It was there to celebrate
the opening of the Fair that was ready
and it intended to do it its own way. It
kept reasonably quiet during the invoca
tion b' Bishop O'Dea. of the Catholic
diocese of Xlsqually and it applauded
wildly the brief address of Dlrector-Gen-
ral Nadeau. of the Exposition.
With the close of the director-general's
addre. the bandsmen under the direc
tion of Loader Innes struck up "Gloria
Washington." This set the crowd in such
a humor that it wanted more. It wanted
things to begin, wanted the guns to go off
and the huge flag to fall as a signal that
the Exposition was open.
Mob Heaps Insult on Hill.
Therefore, when James J. Hill got up
and faced the audience with a roll of
manuscript in his hands, that represented
three columns of closely-set agate type,
the audience was not exactly happy. It
listened to Mr. Hill with respect at first,
then It looked at its programmes and
fidgeted, then it commenced to make re
marks. Mr. Hill was advised to lessen
the length of his speech. Finally he' was
asked to "cut it out," "break it off."
Mr. Hill paused and looked at the Im
patient ones, and then went on with his

FOR HORSE'S LIFE
PREACHERS OFFER FERVENT
Think They Will Cure Billy's Lock

CHICAGO. June 1. (Special.) Prayers
for the recovery of a sick horse at Elgin
were begun today by four Methodist min
isters -who are visiting that city to at
tend a conference of clergymen. As yet
no change for the better has been ob
served in the condition of the animal.
The object of the parsons' prayers is the
property of Byron Bean, 628 Lincoln ave
nue, Elgin. It is a big brown horse named
Billy, and it has lockjaw. It has had
lockjaw since Sunday and many of the
old residents of Elgin, despite the prayers
of the ministers, are of the opinion that
it will continue to have lockjaw for the
rest of its shortening span of life.
The four ministers do not think so. They
think that a little piety will cure Billy and
return to hira the ability to indulge in a

ASHEVILLE, X. C, June 1. (Special.)
George W. Vanderbilt maintains that
the head of his forestry department, Dr.

hunting rights on SO.OOO acres of his
Pisgah forest to X. F. Addicks, Jr.. of
this place, who assigned the lease to
James A. Pugh and J. M. Chiles, of Chi
cago, who paid two years advance rental
required by Dr. Schenck, and negotia
tions are now in progress between them
and Mr. Vanderbilt's attorneys for a con
firmation of the lease with modifications,
or a new lease.
The lessees declare the lease executed
in Mr. Vanderbilt's name by Dr. Schenck
is valid, but they are willing to make
concessions to please Mr. Vanderbilt, who
first consulted counsel here and then
went to Xew York to consult his at

Gagged and his hands bound behind
his back, William Parker was found in
a gutter of Kern Park, on the Mount
Scott line, at 1:30 o'clock this morning.
Upon being revived he stated he had
been waylaid by two men who evidently
after beating him into unconsciousness,
had placed him in'the position in which he
was found. The victim of the highwaymen
asserts he was robbed by them of $15
and a gold watch.
Parker is still in a serious condition,
and it was with great difficulty that the
police gathered snatches of his story,
as he would lapse in to . a state of coma
after the slightest effort to speak. He
was unable to tell his place of resi
dence, his occupation or anything about
his experience. save that he was
pounced upon in the dark by two men.
The highwaymen's victim was found
in his precarious condition by a resi
dent of Mount Scott named Gunn, who
took him to his home. Parker, though
badly beaten, is not thought to have
fatal Injuries. -Detectives have been
detailed on the case.

IN LEWISTON BANK
Books Show Loss of
FORMER EMPLOYES ACCUSED
Names Clarence Robnett and
J. E. Chapman Drawn In.
BANK MAKES LOSS GOOD
Stockholders Come to Rescue Soon
as Shortage Is Discovered by
Bank Examiner Claude Gatcli.
Capital Is Not Impaired.
LEWISTON. Idaho. June 1. Defalca
tions amounting to $137,00fl have been
found in the books of the Lewlston Na
tional Bank by National Bank Exam
iner Claude Gatcli.
Clarence Robnett, former teller, and
J. E. Chapman, former bookkeeper, are
accused of responsibility for the al
leged shortage. Robnett was convict
ed of Idaho land frauds three years
ago, and is said now to be in St. Paul.
Chapman is thought to be in Tacoma.
Pittsburg dispatches about ten days
ago accused Robnett of passing worth
less checks to cover land deals near
Spokane. It is alleged that his short
age in the bank is due to speculations
in irrigated lands.
Shortage Dates Back Five Years.
Beyond the statement that the stock
holders of the bank have made good the
alleged shortage. Bank Examiner Gatch
refused tonight to discuss the situation.
The shortage was discovered some little
time ago by the bank and when the
matter was placed before Robnett it is
stated he made a complete confession,
and while Chapman is said to have ad
mitted doctoring the daily balances to
cover the shortages, he denies having
profited by the transactions. Immediate
ly after the condition became known to
the bank officials, a meeting of the di
rectors was called and the entire defal
cation made good.
Examination of the books . show the
alleged embezzlement has been carried on
for the past five years and has been made
possible without detection only through
the alleged conspiracy between the teller
and bookkeeper, and, the manipulation- of
the adding machine used in computing
the daily balances.
Bank's Capital Is Ample.
The Lewiston National Bank and the
Idaho Trust Company were consolidated
about a year ago, and at that time the
capital and surplus of the Xational Bank
was $200,000 while the capital and surplus
of the Trust Company was $400,000. The
aggregate deposits at the present time
are about $900,000, of which amount $450
000 is subject to check. The cash on hand
is $280,000. The earnings of the bank
for the. past year were $60,000, of which
amount $32,000 was divided among the

fully resisted today, for the moment
at least, their removal to the District
of Columbia to stand trial for criminal,
libel for publishing articles intimating
there was enormous graft in the Pan
ama Canal purchase.
Lawyers for the publishers denied
malice in the stories and editorials com
plained of. They gained from Judge
Anderson a ruling that evidence should
be introduced to this effect. The de
fendants had committed no offense for
which they could be removed to another
district for trial, they said. Attorneys
for the Government vigorously resisted
the introduction of testimony, but were
Civil Malice Differs.
Judge Anderson, in his ruling, -declared
that malice in a civil action was
different from malice in a criminal
case. Implied malice in a newspaper
publication might be sufficient to justi
fy a judgment for damages against the
publisher, but in a criminal action . a
different degree of malice was required
It must be express malice, he said.
"Of course, tlrere 1a back of this the
intent." said Judge Anderson.
"The owner of a newspaper might well
be held civilly for anything that appeared
in its pages, because the men who put it
there are his agents, but when it comes
to a question of criminal liability for
publication of an article it is different.

Should he be held criminally? It does not
occur to me that he could be held crim

If the owner is not present, he actually
knew nothing about the publication and
could not possibly be held guilty of the
crime." - - - . -
Questioning Charles R. Williams, editor
of the Xews, Assistant United States Dis
trict Attorney McXamara drew out that
Mr. Williams had not written the edi

had .made no personal Investigation

and he did not know personally that
C. P. Taft was interested in the Penama
