ins Judgment was latoxlcated and was
smoking a cigar.
The Attorney-General took the matter
up with the Prosecuting Attorney of the
county where the crime for which Smith
was convicted occurred, and has received
an explanation that is considered com
plete and conclusive that Smith a only
one of the many in Walla Walla who are
endeavoring to find some means of escape
from just punishment. The name of
the county where the conviction was ob
tained is withheld.
The Prosecuting Attorney asserts that
Smith and two Americans were accused
of burglarizing a boxcar; that the goods
were found in their possession; that the
evidence, though circumstantial, was
clear and convincing; that an attorney of
years of experience was appointed by the
court to defend the men; that the so
called British subject was tried along
with the two Americans, and certainly
had as fair a trial as they. The Prose
cuting Attorney concludes by saying:
"There was absolutely no smoking by.
any one while the court was in session,
and the Judge was at no time during the
term of court under the Influence of liquor
in the slightest degree."

ployes of state institutions and persons
furnishing supplies tor state Institutions
must either hold their claims against the
state until after June, 1906, or sell them
for 90 cents on the dollar. Those who do
not need all the money their claims rep
resent can borrow 85 per cent of the face
value and pay 8 per cent interest on the
When it is said that the claimants must
wait until June, 1906, it is assumed that
-the people will sustain the legislature Dy
approving the appropriation bill by their
votes. If the people should vote down
the appropriation bill, as many believe
will be done, the claimants must wait for
their money until 1907, when the Legisla
ture can make another appropriation.
Brokers are discounting claims 10 per
cent upon the ground that the Legislature
may never authorize the payment of In
terest on the claims. The money may
be available for the payment of claims 13
months hence. In which case the brokers
would make 10 per cent on their money In
tliat time. Should the people disapprove
the appropriation bill, the brokers must
wait two years for their money, and
would make 5 per cent a year by discount
ing the claims. If, however, the Legisla
ture should authorize the payment of 6
per cent interest on all these claims, the
brokers will make 5 per cent on the dis
count and 6 per cent as interest, or 11 per
cent a year, in all.
The profits of the brokers would really
be more than 12 per cent, for In buying a
5100 claim the broker pays $90, and this is
the amount of his investment. The profit
of 55 a yearv represented by the discount,
added to the 56 received as Interest from
the state, would make a profit of 511, or
12 1-5 per cent on the investment.
The loaning plan offered by the banks
seems to be a better one for those who
can get along with a part of their money.
A man who holds a ?100 claim can borrow
at a bank 5S5, giving his claim as secur
ity. He must pay S-per cent Interest, or
$14.60, in two years. If the state pays In
terest on his claim, he will receive 5112 and
must pay back to the bank 5S5 plus 513.60,
or 598.60, leaving him 513.40. By that
method he would get out of his claim
$98.40, but would be out the use of 515 for
two years. If, however, the state should
not pay interest, the man who borrows
on his claim would get $S3 now and when
he cashes his claim two j-ears hence he
would have Just a little more than enough
to pay his debt, with interest at 8 per
cent. He would get 5S6.40 for his 5100
"Whether the state will ever pay Interest
upon these claims is a question which no
man can answer now. The board of trus
tees of the state institutions tried to In
duce the banks to purchase the claims at
par, and assured them that if they would
do so, the board will do all In Its power
to Induce the Legislature to alow 6 per
cent interest. It Is quite certain that if
the claims were bought at par, the Legis
lature would allow interest, but if the
brokers discount the claims 10 per cent. It
is doubtful whether any interest will be
paid. The banks declined to buy the
claims at par, and are not buying them at
any price. Banks have adopted the policy
of loaning 85 per cent of the face of a
claim, whllo brokers buy, paying 90 per
cent of the face. Somo of the brokers
borrow money from the banks and use It
to buy claims, so that In reality it is bank
money that takes up many of the pur
Some of the employes of state Institu
tions are getting the face of their claims
by transferring them to merchants from
whom they buy groceries or clothing. In
the Illustration given above, the compu
tation was made from a claim of 5100. As
a matter of fact, the salaries of state em
ployes generally range from 525 to 530 a
month, with board, laundry, etc A ma- i
Jorlty of the employes "live up' their
salaries as fast as earned, and many have
spent their earnings In advance. Local
merchants, cither In order to get the trade
or In order to collect what might other
wise be bad debts, take the claims at par,
and will take chances on the Legislature
appropriating money for interest.
The claims from state institutions make
a very convenient and absolutely safe in
vestment for the. small "capitalist. The
man or woman who has 5100 or 5500 saved
up may invest it in state claims at 90
cents on the dollar. The claims will cer
tainly be paid, and the investor will make
per cent interest on his money. If the
state should also pay Interest, he will
make 12 per cent. Many residents pf Sa
lem will Invest their savings In state
claims, knowing them to be safer than
ordinary securities and probably as prof
itable. Those employes who draw larger sal
aries and who have economized are In a
position to carry at least a part of their
claims without resorting to either the
broker or the banker. Employes of state
institutions, however, are not generally a
class of people who save their money, and
most of them are in Buch financial straits
that they must get cash -for their claims
at the best terms possible. Many have
families to support, while- a few have
bought property on the Installment plan
and must keep up their payments.

Albert Wilson and Peter Curry, tho two
Tcnlno men convicted of cattle-thieving.
and whpso trial was attended by an at
tempt to bribe three members of the Jury
to fail to agree, were today sentenced to
three years each in the penitentiary oh
the cattle-stealing charge. This followed
a scene said to be unparalleled in the his
tory of legal procedure in this state.
In the presence of a crowd that packed
the courtroom, their attorney. George C.
Israel, made a strong effort to secure an
order for a new trial on the ground that
the bribery matter had been Improperly
ulscussed by the Jury, and had Influenced
certain members to bring In a verdict of
guilty. Israel acknowledge that he was
unable to secure an affidavit from any
Juror that the discussion took place, but
leaded that the court summon the Jurors
before the bar and question them under
oath. This motion was denied, and Israel
then asked the court to dictate to
stenographer a statement of what had
transpired in the Judge's private room
following the trial.
Judge Linn acceded to tho request and
told hov the foreman of the Jury had
asked a private audience with the Judge
after the verdict had been handed In.
Tho foreman told the Judge that it had
been stated In the Jury-room that three
members of the jury had been offered a
sum of money to hang the Jury; that the
offer had been made by W. M. Welch, a

In that case; that no statement had been
made to him that the discussion occurred

Money Paid for License to City Does
Not Protect Them.
SEATTLE, Wash., May 20. (Spe

license from fortune-tellers. The state
law declares such persons are vagrants
and may be punished as such. It was
decided by the courts today" that if a
fortune-teller pays -ihe city's license
and is subsequently prosecuted under
the state-law he cannot recover ills
license fee. The payment to the city
constitutes something of a bunco game.

weeks ago under the , slate law as a
vagrant and paid a fine for the offense.
Prior to this Massery. who is recently
from Portland, took out a city license
and paid $50 for It.
When the city refused to allow Mas
sery to practice under a license which
the municipality had given, he brought
suit for the return of 550 he had paid
for that license. The case was heard
last Tuesday and Justice Gordon with
