cial.) Repeated attempts have been
made by the citizens of Wood River
Valley, in the Fort Klamath country,
:t5 miles from here, to have the Gov
ernment take up the matter of making
Wood River navigable and dyking it so
as to reclaim the adjacent land from

has reached this city that the Govern

Fort Klamath has always been
handicapped in its efforts to get trans
portation facilities from Klamath

steamer cannot get nearer than 10
miles of the town, but if Wood River
can be made navigable, it will give
these people freight and passenger
transportation. Tf this stream can be
dNked. it also will reclaim many hun

make it tillable for any kind of crops.
At present it is only fit for wild hay.

Copper Man and Banker Re
frains From Testifying.
Question of Good Kaitli Turns on
Real Value of United Copper
Stock Morse Partly Re
sponsible for Loans.
NEW YORK, May 11. The case of F.
Augustus Heinae, ex-president of the
Mercantile National Bank, accused of
misappropriation of the bank's funds
and overeertlflcatlon of the checks of
Otto Heinze & Co.. his brother's firm,
will go to the Jury tomorrow evening.
The taking of testimony came to a
close late today and the summing up
and the court's charge will close the
trial tomorrow.
Surprise was occasioned by the de
fense today when it rested its case
without calling Heinze to the stand.
Prosecutor Wise in turn rested his case
without any attempt at rebuttal. Un
der the ruling of Judge Hough confining
the charges to the single transaction
of a $500,000 loan on October 14. 1907.
made by the Mercantile National Bank
to Otto Heinze & Co.. the defense con
fined Itself to one line of attack on the
Secret Resources Told. "
The only testimony offered was as to
the value of the collateral offered by
Heinze to secure this loan. To prove
the stability of the United Copper
Company, whose stock was pledged in
security, the secret resources of the
Heinzes were made public. Witnesses
today were questioned along lines de
veloped yesterday to prove that com
panies controlled by the United Copper
Company gave it a substantial footing.
Emil Kloln, cashier of the Mercan
tile Bank, was questioned with a view
to relieving Heinze of a part of the
responsibility for the $500,000 loan. It
had been testified that Charles W.
Morse had promised to take half of
this loan.
Morse Partly Responsible.
Klein testified to receiving checks of
$126,000 and $40,000 from Morse on
October 15, 1907, in part payment of
the loan. At the time, he said, there
was a deficit against Heinze in the
bank of $76,000, making the amount of
the loan after these payments only
Albert Frank, a former Heinze em
ploye, was cross-examined at length toy
District Attorney Wise. who tried in
every possible way to break down his tes
timony. Mr. Wise was prompted by a mining
expert and his questions oame so fast
that the witness grew confused and ap
parently welcomed a respite when counsel
for the defense Interrupted with objec
tions. Frank said that he wanted to
correct some of the testimony that he
gave yesterday, saying that ore he testi
fied to having sold for 30 cents had never
sold for more than 14 cents and a frac
tion. This reduced considerably the esti
mate he had given of the value of certain
ore-bearing lands.
Chester Glass, a director of the United
Copper Company in 1907, and now presi
dent of the New York and Pittsburg Coal
Company, was another witness for the

berg sat on the seat with Kltngenberg
pushing- on an oar as Klingenberg
facing him pulled, Hadberg naturally
had his left side toward Klingenberg.
Gobi's Movements Traced.
By referring to various witnesses he
showed how it had, in the mind of tha
gtate, been proven conclusively that
Gohl had personally gone down the
bay the night of -December 21. as al
leged, adding, "Gohl was there because
he told James Marshall that the launch
had broken down. He said to another
man on the same day that he was go
ing down to fix the launch and he went
straight to the point on the beach
where it had been tied up, as Klingen
berg testified it had."
He further contended that Gohl did not
tell John Hoffman and Klingenberg that
he (Gohl) intended to kill Hadberg on
that particular night, but that instead he
had informed the two men that their
mission down the bay that night would
be to get a sloop and pull her off the
shore if possible, but If not, then to take
the sails off her. This story, said the
prosecutor, was repeated to Hadberg the
next morning and explains why Hadberg
brought down the big anchor to the
launoh, Hadberg naturally thinking that
if a sloop was to be floated it would of
course be necessary to have an anchor
Argument Is Deductive.
"Cannot you picture that scene, when,
after Klingenberg had fired only two or
three Bhots, he stood facing Gohl, who
also held a. revolver in his hand? Can you
not understand the feeling within those
two men when Gohl said, We have no
more use for these guns,' and standing
with hands raised over the water, hold
ing the weapons, they gave the signal
and dropped them at the same time?"
The prosecutor also brought out another
line of deduction when he pointed out to
the Jury that, strange to say, the launch
had been tied to the piling after it had
broken down by a stern line instead of
at the bow. This the attorney declared
was for the purpose of swamping the
craft, as the "launch then made a splen
did washtub to obliterate the blood."
"I will give the defendant credit." ex
claimed Attorney Campbell, "for being
one of the finest schemers In Chehalis
Gohl's Stories Punctured.
Campbell also spoke of the several
stories, all at variance, which Gohl told
in Aberdeen regarding the absence of
Hadberg and Hoffman, referring particu
larly to Gohl's statement to Chief of Po
lice George Dean, of Aberdeen, that
"Hadberg and Hoffman had gone out
over the bar to Alaska." The State's At
torney derided the fact that any man
would thus leave for Alaska, particularly
in mid-Winter. Thus, point by point, he
wound up the case for the state, closing
by stating that he expected each man to
do his duty and that he asked for a ver
dict of murder la the first degree.
Within three minutes after he had
closed the Jury had been sent out and
the wait commenced- Mrs. Gohl ap
proached her husband, who stood with a
Deputy Sheriff and Sheriff Ed Payette,
awaiting return to his ceil, and as she
came up Gohl turned to her with a smile
and exclaimed; "Don't worry, no mat
ter what the verdict is. Be cool and
"Oh, I'm not Worrying any. and. I will
be all right. I am prepared for a verdict
of guilty, and i the verdict is not guilty
I will have a pleasant surprise." ,
Interest Shown for Jensen.
"Get a lawyer for Lauritx Jensen (the
Weasel)," Gohl then continued. "And
keep him from .
At this point Sheriff Payette took
Gohl's arm and pulled him away, con
fident that Gohl was about to say "and
keep him from saying anything about
me," as these instructions had been given
by Goal yesterday to Harry Lundberg,

Gohl sent for Father Gribben, the
Catholic priest here, and the father met
the accused man this morning. After
the case had been sent to the Jury Father
Gribben went into Gohl's cell.
"Oh," said Gohl, "I shook hands with
you this morning. That's all I want of
you. You can't get any confession out
of me."
After the Jury had retired, Mrs. Gohl
stepped outside the Courthouse and kept
up a continual pacing back and forth.
The entire city tonight is discussing
nothing but what the verdict will be.
If Great Twirler Is Xot Trying Ruse,
His Ann Has Gone Completely
Back on Him.
WA SHTNGTON', May 11. (Special.-)
There are many fans in Washington will
ing to testify under oath that Walter
Johnson, star pitcher of last season. Is
trying hard" to get his release from the
Washington ball team. The work of
Johnson this year has been eo bad that
it is believed by some of the wisest fans
of this city that he hopes the manage
ment will become disgusted with him aJid
trade him for eome other player.
There Is another coterie of fans in
Washington who believe that the great
twirler Is all through and that his arm
has actually gone back on him. There is
good grounds for the fans to think that
Johnson's arm is going bad. He has
been working himself too hard during off
seasons and his arm has not had the
proper rest. He kept pitching during
last Winter, and this Spring when the
training trip started he was still at it,
pitching for some Western team, and re
fused to report for practice with the Sen
ators until late in the trip.
