and the wheels of justice began to
rotate slowly. The defense refused
to use any testimony. The prosecu
tion argued a document introduced,
that stated arsenic had been found
In the viscera of Decker. The de
fense objected on the grounds of In
competency. A long argument pro and con en
sued before the judge, who gazed out
of the window and swatted malicious
ly at some flies with a blotter.
"The evidence is accepted," he an
nounced. "I ask that this woman be bound
over to the circuit court," concluded
the prosecution in its final argument.
"The prisoner is bound over with
out bond," announced the judge.
"Hold . on!" shouted Ben Neal.
"Aren't we going to have the oppor
tunity of showing why she should
have bond in order to enable her to
prepare her defense?"
"You can make some speeches if
you want to, but you can't change
my views," replied the judge. "Any
way, it's almost lunch time."
The arguments were advanced by
the defense, but the judge stood pat.
"Clear out! The morning session's
over," announced the sheriff.
The crowd filed out of the court
room. Many, unable to get through
the crowd, had used a ladder to get
on the roof. The ladder had been
removed during the case and a shout
went up from those who found them
selves marooned on the slanting tin
covered structure. Finally someone
found the ladder and the spectators
were enabled to land safely. The
ladles' church guild sold out their
stock shortly afterward.
In the afternoon King Bruce was
arraigned. The little courtroom was
like an oven in full blast. The prose
cuting attorney discarded his coat;
the sheriff rapped for order, and the
case began. The testimony was a
mere repetition of the morning ses
sion. The judge worked in perfect
harmony with the prosecution and
Bruce was bound over without bond.
He was taken to the little stone jail
followed by a crowd of women and
men. The defendant gazed in wonder
at the curious, shook hands with sev
eral and remarked:
"Pretty nigh supper time, ain't it,

Informal gathering, the crowd that
attended the preliminary hearing of

here. In a little stuffy, box-like room
the crowd gathered. They stood
shoulder to shoulder, packed like a
"boss" meeting before opening time.
The overflow extended into the hall,
down the stairs and into the court
yrd. Many of the men looked as
if they had left their plows a few
minutes before. Children whined
peevishly and snapped the suspenders
of their fathers. They crowded in

the dust-covered attorneys' tables and

programme replete with many
vocal excellencies and some artis
tic surprises. Miss Leah Leaska, dra
matic soprano, formerly of this city
and now of New York city, won a
pleasant triumph in concert last night
in the public auditorium. Her piano
accompanist was J. R. Hutchison, who
played with rare sympathy and in
vested his keyboard work with sin
cerity of tonal presentation that was
remarkable for music beauty.
Miss Leaska. who in private life is
Miss Leah Cohen, born in this city,
was cordially received by an audience
numbering 735 people.
Another factor that entered into the
musical pleasure of the occasion was
the superb playing of the Ampico re
producing piano. It played by itself
aa If directly by a living artistic pres
ence, and played softly and tenderly,
or stirred up a baby tempest as the
expressions marked by the music
score changed. It was actually an
uncanny experience to come under
the spell of those ghostly fingers at
work somewhere on the white end
black keys. Twice the duo piano
played piano solos and afterward
played fine accompaniments to four
songs sung by Miss Leaska.
It was a nerve-trying task that Miss
Leaska set herself to accomplish, to
sing as an artist to a home audience,
but she did this with satisfaction. For
her hard work, her perseverance in
the proper preparation of such a
splendid programme, she deserves
Miss Leaska is remembered in this
city for the steady improvement she
has made since the days when she
was a young, untried singer. She
graduated from temple choir and
concert to New York city, where she
now emerges in maturity. In 1920
she sings with fine vocal finish that
is pleasant to hear, and she displays
excellent, distinct, story-telling dic
tion. She lives the scenes she de
picts in her songs, and by voice and
facial expressions conveys what her
songs say to her audiences. She is an
Oregon song queen worth hearing.
Miss Leaska sang last night in Yid
dish, Italian, French and English. Her
best sung numbers, for impressive
dramatic effect, were "Ritorna Vinci
tor, from Aida; "Eli. Eli" (Schindler),
and "Cry of Rachel" (Salter). A
favorite song that made a deep im
pression on the audience was the late
Tom Dobson's "The Rivals." The pro
gramme was sung as printed, except
that in place of Fourdrain's "Le Pa
pillon," Miss Leaska sang "My Man
agerie" (Fay Foster). s
SAN FRANCISCO, July 3. (Spe
cial.) If there is to be any such
thing as prediction, we must frankly
take into account the fact that most
of the convention strategy, as re
spects candidates, is based on the
assumption that President Wilson has
a right to expect and may indeed
actually expect the nomination himself.
Nobody here expects that Wilson
will get it, but of this aspect more
later. All the more important candi
dacies are being managed with this
fact, and all the conditions which
must arise from this fact, in mind.
The way this condition will work
out- involves some difficulty of state
ment, but if venturing Into the field
of prediction at all, this is the only
sound .approach to it.
First, from the point of view of
Wilson. If it were not for his illness
and the consequences of his illness,
he would have reason to expect the
nomination, and there could be no
doubt whatever that he would get it.
It is nothing whatever but his health
that stands between Wilson and the
Session Friendly to 'Wilson.
In its every act this convention Is
overwhelmingly friendly and defer
ential to Wilson, and the convention
would carry that friendliness and
deference, in spite of minor inharmo
nious elements, all the way to the
point of nominating him by acclama
tion, but for that one impediment
the state of his health now and since
last September and the consequences
that flow from his health. President
Wilson would be fully justified in
expecting the nomination but for hi
health, and it is not at all unreason
able for him to expect it now, if his
own notion of the present and prob
able future state of his health differs
fiom the notion held by the public
ana retiected In the convention.

leaders and friends and associates

but they know equally well that Mr.
Wilson may have a different view
and has a right to think that he has
more accurate knowledge of his
health than the public has. The con
sequence is that in all their relations
with Mr. Wilson they have never
ventured to ask him for his Judgment
about the nomination, for the reason
that the mere asking of the question
would imply expressing their Judg
ment that he himself could not have
Mr. Wilson, on his side, has- never
expressed any opinion or intention
about the presidency nor alluded to it
in any way. He has always confined
his conversations strictly to the plat
form. For this silence Mr. Wilson

cacy, because of himself, because of
Mr. McAdoo or otherwise. But the
