Judge McPherson read the iudement-
He attributed the downfall of Balllet not
so much to criminal Instincts as to vanity
and his desire to" exploit himself. In pass
ing judgment, the court stated also that
Balllet could not be given a good defense
because under the statutes he was re
qulred'to deny the motion which had been
made that witnesses for the defense be
brought here at the expense of the Gov
ernment from California and Oregon.
The White Swan gold mine at Baker
City, Or., which was nothing more than
an abandoned shaft, was acquired by Bal
let for a mere song and constituted the
basis upon which he secured something
like 5250,000 by a get-rich-quick process.
The Judge In passing sentence said he
was convinced the mine was a worth'ess
holo in the ground. Much indignation is
expressed at the lightness of the sen
tence. PAETY IS EASLY ASTER.

I count It Indeed a privilege to have bad the
chance ot visiting this marvelous exposition.
I cannot sufficiently express my appreciation
of Its wonder and Its beauty. It is the great
est exposition of its kind we have ever seen
in recorded history. As I walked today
through and among the buildings and saw
what they were; what they signified In the
way of achievement at home; what they sig
nified in, the way of achievement among t&ese
great arid friendly nations who are represented
here, I had but one regret, and that was a
deep regret the regret that these could not be
made permanent the regret that It la impos
sible to keep these buildings .as they are as a
permanent memorial of the greatness ot this

dollar that has been spent here is not so far
sighted as he should be It Is & credit to the
United States that this exposition should have
been carried to such a successful conclusion,
and, of course, it Is a credit to Missouri and to
St. Louis on behalf of all the people of the
country. For each man In the country had a
personal stake in the success of this exposition,
for Its success resected credit upon the entire
country, and therefore, on behalf of the Nation
I will have to express my deep appreciation
of -the far-elghtcd, tireless, intelligent, disin

than by all others, by you. President Francis.
The country Is under a great debt of obliga

possible, even more highly than before. A
