OROVILLE. CaL. Aug. 2S. (Special.)
Unless a more definite ruling can be
obtained from Dr. Wiley relative to
what constitutes a green orange, tha
rich holiday trade of the Eastern mar
kets may be closed to the orange-grow-
ers of Northern California. This waa
the statement made today by D. O.
Hills, secretary of the Butte County
A serious situation has developed as
a result of the Indefinite character of
Dr. Wiley's ruling.
Dr. Wiley has decreed that green
oranges must not be sold. He recog
nizes, however. In his ruling, that the
fruit of tha orange tree may be ripe
enough for market while the color of
the peel Is yet green.
The growers fear that they may send
fruit to the East, only to find that each
inspector has a different opinion, and
that, aa a consequence, unless the
oranges are allowed to fully mature
upon the trees, there win be a heavy
loss by reason of tha actions - of the
pure food Inspectors.

Tale of Son-ln-I.aw's Illness.
Prisoner Faces Strain.
CHESTERFIELD COURTHOUSE, Va
Aug. 28. Paul D. Beattie, cousin oi
Henry Clay Beattie, Jr., who stands in
dicted for the murder of his wife, tes
tified late today that the accused had
told him 24 hours after the murder how.
sorry he was that "he had done it," a
circumstance relating to the crime that
the witness hitherto had suppressed.
Coming as dramatically and as unex
pectedly as the pathetic tals an hour
before of Mrs. R V. Owen, mother ot
the dead woman, as to the domestic In
felicity of her daughter as a result ot
the husband's disease, the brief but
thrilling testimony given by Paul BeaU
tie created a profound sensation.
Paul Beattie, at the Coroner's In
quest a nervous wreck, but today
strong and determined, poured out a
tale which confessedly had troubled
his mind not only because he pur
chased the shotgun for Henry, but be
cause he had not until today told all
he knew of the case.
Duty Forces Revelations.
T hated to testify against my own
flesh and kin," he murmured, "but my
wife, my child, and the duty I owe
to my city forced V6 to do so. Henry
himself told me that he wanted me to
stick by him. but I said to him: Thia
looks mighty black to me, and you've
got me Into a lot of trouble."
"Henry told me I wish to God I had
not done It. I would not have done It
for 81,000,000, but she never loved me.
She only married me for my money." "
It was late when this stage of tha
trial was reached and adjournment waa
taken until tomorrow morning, wheq
cross-examination will continue.
Mbther-ln-Iiaw Forgets Pride.
From early morning, when a motheiy
Mrs. R. V. Owen, stifled her pride and.
in a choking voice, almost a whisper at
times, told the jury the sordid details
of Henry C. Baettie, Jr.'a alleged phy
slcal ailment. ' which caused his wife
heartrending grief and hours ot an
guish, the prisoner faced the hardest
strain thus far witnessed in his fight
Through the testimony of the mother
of the dead woman the prosecution en
deavored to define the motive for tha
crime the fear that the news of fhe
alleged ailment might reach Henry
Clay Beattie, Sr., and cause a rupture
between the son and the father, upon
whom he depended.
To reinforce this theory the prose
cution put on the stand Mrs. J. Bin
ford, mother of Beulah, "the girl In the)
case," and Henrietta Plttman, Beu
Tale of Childbirth Told,
Their testimony brought to the sur
face a story of Beattle's four years o4 '
acquaintance with Beulah Blnxord. oi
alleged numerous Indiscretions, of tha
birth and death of the child named
Henry Clay Blnford and how. Just
prior to the murder, this relauonsnip
Confusion Seen in Courtroom.
There was confusion in the court
room when Paul Beattie was sum
moned. Tbe gun with which Mrs,
Beattie was killed was produced.
"Look at that and tell the Jury when
was the first time you saw It," said
"The first time," Beattio answered
quickly, "was at the pawnshop when
I bought It, on a Saturday Just before
the murder, and the next time was at
the Coroner's Inquest."
"How did you come to buy the gun?
'Thursday, in the week before tbe
murder, I was at home with my wife
and baby," Paul replied. "The tele
phone rang and Henry Clay Beattie,
Jr., asked me to meet him in 15 min
utes. I dressed and went to Short
and Main streets, three squares away.
Purchase of Gun Told.
"My cousin came a few minutes later
In his automobile. We went to a sa
loon and had a drink and as we left he
said to me: "Paul. I want you to buy a
single-barreled shotgun." I said 'All
right." He took me home In the ma
chine and gave me 82 to pay for the
gun and 5 cents for cartridges. He
told me to call-up a girl for him Mrs.
Fisher and tell her he would ba
around for his wife's dress. I called
up Mrs. Fisher and told her this."
Previous testimony had been given
to show that Beulah Blnford was
known as "Mrs. Fisner."
