The city engineer and Sir. Brown will
probably meet today for the purpose of
ueciding upon the third engineer to so
into me question. The council has out
ImeH the following two questions to be
arvauy determined:
"First Is It or Is It not a feasible
proposition to dig the proposed chan
ncl and. utilise the Columbia river
siooita for a sewer outfall, and will It,
ir constructed, make it a cafe nroced
tire from a s in 1 lar y standpoint to util
ise the slouah below the outlet of the
new channel aa a sewer outfall?
"Second If it Is not a practical plan,

proposed districts

Should the report of the outside en
rlneer be adverse to the plaa of City
Jr.nglneer laarxurd. the city will pay
j-.ngineer nmwn loon for his services,
but should Knpineer Laurgaard be sus
tained tn his views the city will not be
obliged to give Kngineer Brown any
compensation, under the terms of the
agreement made.
Under Mr. aurgaard's plans the city
proposed to construct a channel be
tween the Columbia river and the
slough at an approximate cost of
$250,000. and later construct lateral
sewers, as they are required, emptying
into the Columbia river slough at vari
ous points below the channel.
Should this plan prove to be Imprac
ticable it la stated that the only other
means of providing sewer facilities is
by construction of a main trunk sewer
extending to the Columbia river which
would cost millions of dollars.
II. C Merrill, lined for Hoarding

IJOS ANGELES. The numeral five

There were five attorneys In the
case, three for Merritt. and two for

of appeal was given and the defendant
was given until May 10 to file the pro
posed bill of exceptions.
When the matter of fixing the bond
pending the appeal came up. Assistant
United States District Attorney Lyndol
L. Young auggested that the new bond
be fixed at 125,000, but the "court
placed the amount at $15,000.
In passing J udgrnent. Judge Trip
pet said that to only fine Merritt the
limit provided by law, $j0u0. would cot
be sufficient, as the payment would
mean nothing to a man of the financial
standing of Merritt. It would not mean
as mush to him as the payment of $1 by
some men.
The court said he was convicted
that Merritt was guilty . aa 'charged.
and that the jury's verdict waa a right
eous one.
When sentence was pronounced.
neither Merritt nor his wife gave any
sign of distress. It was evident that
they had steeled themselves for the
expected shock. When Edwin A.
Meserve was arguing for a new trial
Merritt showed some feeling, but he
Immediately straightened up.
The financial standing of Merritt
came up when Assistant United

Palmer made the statement that Mer
ritt had claimed he was worth $60.
000.000, and that he had alleged that
he had accumulated money at the rate
or $1,000,000 a year ever since he had
reached the age of 34 years.
in support or tne motion for a new
trial Edwin A. Meserve followed
closely the lines of- his address to the
Jury that convicted Merritt. claiming
that the evidence connecting his client
ith a guilty knowledge of the pres"-
ence of the 500 pounds of sugar at 407
Olcoft place. Pasadena, was not pro
duced, and that the testimony furnish
ed by Miss Anna Hare, the cook, waa
hardly to be relied on nnder the cir
cumstances of the case.
Mr Palmer said that In his judg
ment -Merritt was convicted bv the
Jury without the testimony of Miss
Hare, and he spoke at some lene-th
of the various points made by the
government as set before the jury by
his associate, Mr. Toung, and himself.

Sheriff Has Many Friends AVben
Confiscation Is Known.
PARIS. Mo. Friends of Sheriff Nolen
of this city were under the Impression
the other day that he had a great secret
that he was particularly anxious to
keep to himself, as he was approached
a score of times by persons who were
soon engaged in earnest conversation
with him on the streets, but to all of
the importunities be was seen to hake
hla head. It waa not learned until
day or two later that the official had
been approached to let his friends in
on a ack of. liquor that the sheriff had
taken from a negro and which -v
stolen from a saloon in Hannibal. The
insistence of those who were "dry"
finally became so strong that the sher.
iff locked himself in his office and hung
out the nothing-doing" sign. "That
whisky was "Old Crow and 'Old Wood
pecker,' both bottled in sond and about
tbe best that can be secured here
abouts," vouchsafed the sheriff In dis
cussing the Incident later, "and it was
strange how thoset fellows who but
tonholed me would have been willing
to 'caw a little and 'peck a little at
the slightest provocation. Tou would
have thought they had Just come in

In a few terse sentences. Major X
W. Woolrldge of the 38th Infantry, who
arrived at Letterman hospital at San
"Francisco recently to recover from
wounds received at the front, took a
decided stand against the criticism of
the association work In France, which
the said was most unjust.
"A few Inefficiencies can he charged
to the exigencies of the war." said
Major Woolridge, "but the T. M. O. A.
men never failed by reason of their
own negligence or desire. They cared
for ninety-odd per cent of the army
who were well- Their work was not
mited to the wounded. They stretched
their resources to the utmost. The
criticism directed against this wonder
ful organization la unwarranted. '
Mjor Woolrldge paid a splendid
tribute to the boys nnder his com
mand, who he said were the finest
young men America ever produced.
Kahn'g Fight on Zionism May Cost
O. O. P. Votes of Jews.
CHICAGO. The next national elec
tion may find an issue in far-off Palestine.
A warning has been Issued to the
republican leaders by Habbt Hudolph

the republicans induce Julius Kanu of
the house military committee to cease
his opposition to Zionism, the demo
crats may secure SO per cent of the
votes of Jews in America, Rabbi Coffee
The Chicago rabbi .returned recently
from California, where he had been
visiting his motherless children and
relatives. They reside In Congressman
Kahn'n district. Dr. Coffee spent a
week there and he says the Jews of
San Francisco are bitter against Kaan'l
attitude. The feeling had become so
intense, be said, that indignation meet
ings, were planned, but cooler heads
prevailed and the meetings were aban
doned. -
Congressman Kahn has been justly
credited with vigorous action in con
nection with America's participation in
the war. President Wilson declared
his aid in rushing the selective draft
measure through congress was Inval
uable. His argument against Jews of
America favoring colonisation of Pal
estine is that they will hus be living
under two flags.
'"There Is only one flag for American
Jews," he says, "and that is ths Stars
.nd Stripes."

Rabbi Coffee said, "may be fine rhet
