N A SIGN
Treaty Regarding Outer Mon
golia Is Made Finally.
RUSSIA IS TO DOMINATE
Pckin and PetrogTad Guarantee Au
tonomy, Conditioned on Right of
Larger Governments to Ap
prove Internal Relations.
LONDON, June 7. A Reuter dispatch
from Petrograd says that the special
envoys of Russia, China and Mongolia
signed today at Kiakhta, Siberia, the
triparte treaty regarding the autonomy
of Outer Mongolia. This treaty was
agreed on after a conference that has
lasted for nearly a year.
By the terms of the agreement China
will retain a nominal suzerainty over
Mongolia, but neither China nor Rus
sia will interfere with the administra
tion of Mongolia's internal affairs.
WASHINGTON. June 7. The signing
today at KiakJita, Siberia, by repre
sentatives of Rucisia, China and Mon
golia of a treaty establishing the
status of Outer Mongolia marks the
removal of one of the main obstacles
to a complete understanding between
China and Russia, according to views
in Washington diplomatic circles.
The prolonged negotiations, lasting
nearly a year, have been watched with
closest interest here. According to
some diplomatists from the East, the
new treaty really provides for a return
to conditions that existed for nearly
a century in Mongolia, and up to the
revolution of 1912. whereby Mongolia
secured recognition of her independence
by formal treaty with Russia. The
substantial difference between the new
and old order of things lies in the
formal acceptance of Russia's dominat
ing influence in the external relations
of Outer Mongolia.
The new convention provides for a
Joint guarantee by China and Russia
of Mongolian autonomy, conditioned on
the recognition of the right of China
and Kuseia to be consulted In all ques
tions affecting the external relations
of Mongolia. A Chinese representative
with his staff is to remain in Urga,
capital of Outer Mongolia, which is
to have the privilege of maintaining
a Chinese guard of ample proportions
to protect his mission. The "Living
Buddha" is recognized as the head of
the Outer Mongolian government, cor
responding in the exercise of his func
tions to the Grand Llama in Thibet.
The treaty does not in any way af
fect Inner Mongolia, which remains
under Japanese Jurisdiction, which was
confirmed in treaties recently signed

None should feel their cars are not

has been so great. We can take care
of all decorated cars entered, and the

the floral display.
'Portland women, through the execu

in creating early interest Jn the floral
parade. The result is that we have
many entries and the success of this
feature is assured. The parade will

Including C. V. Cooper, Candidate-

ing instructed the .new grand jury to
investigate charges by Judge McGinn
tbat the entire 116 Jury panel of more
tban 2000 names was "hand-picked-"
The new Jury probably will begin this
investigation next week.
The charges made by Judge McGinn
were that the 'method of drawing the
Jury panel was illegal because the
County Commissioners had delegated
the task to D. G. Tomasini. Judge
McGinn alleged from the bench on two
different occasions that this method
had resulted in the selection of men
on the Jury who were inimical to the
interests of plaintiffs in personal In
None of the other judges concurred
In Judge McGinn's remarks, but the at
tack created considerable comment and
resulted in at least two Jurors asking
to be excused from further service.
New jurors flocked to the Court
house yesterday morning when the
Jane term of court opened. . Many
well-known men were In the panel,
which, on this account, had been
designated the "highbrow Jury."
From the list of 60 names the new
grand Jury, which will serve during
the months of June. July and August,
was drawn. Under the direction of
Charles C. Hindman. deputy District
Attorney, the new jury organized and
adjourned until next Monday. The
grand jury, as finally selected, con
sists of the following:
Foreman, A. E. Ganbenbeln, 261 East

Independent Cracker Company.
Secretary, J. 1.-Cass, 206 Seventeenth

The name of C. J. Franklin, an elec
trical expert for the Portland Railway,
Light & Power Company, was at first

Franklin entered a strong plea and
A number of bankers and other
prominent men drawn for Jury -service
appeared in court yesterday and served
as Jurors without a murmur. The
name of William M. Ladd was called,
and Mr. Ladd was excused from ser
vice on account of both firemen and
militia exemptions. -Charles E. Ladd
also was excused because he lives out
side of Multnomah County.
O. V. Cooper, candidate for City
Commissioner at yesterday's election,
was drawn on the Jury. Judge Uavio
excused Mr. Cooper for one day, say
ing tbat on account of the election he
probably would be in no frame of mind
to sit on a jury anyway. Robert Wake
field, a well-known contractor, was ex
cused on account of defective hearing.
The June term of court lasts until
the second Monday in September, and
these jurors will have to serve until
LOCATORS ARE INDICTED
sew charge: brought against
K. 10. ALLEY AND C. L. BYRON.
Accusation Is That Settlers Were Led
to Swear Falsely to Value of Tim
ber Clima Takea.
Frank E. Alley, prominent attorney
of Roseburg, and Charles L. Byron, a
Seattle timber locator, were reindicted
by the Federal grand jury yesterday in
connection with the charge made by
the Government that they induced tim
ber locators to give wrong estimates of
the value of timber claims with intent
to defraud the Government.
The new indictment charges Mr.
Alley and Mr. Byron with having en
tered into a conspiracy to commit
subornation of perjury.
It is alleged by the Government that
the defendants induced approximately
50 land locators to appear before the
register and receiver of the E-oseburi
land office and to swear, first, that
they had made personal examination
of the claims in question, and, second,
that they knew from personal examin
ation that the claims were, worth only
$425 each. The Government asserts
that none of the locators had exam
ined the lands, and that instead of
being worth only J423 each the claims
averaged more . than $5000 each in
An indictment on these charges, re
turned last February, fell .through j
few weeks ago when Federal Judge
Bean sustained a demurrer to the in
dictment on the ground tbat a timber
claim is not a claim against the United
States. as contemplated under the
Yesterday's indictment for conspiracy
to commit subornation of perjury is
the Government s next step in the case.
