MONEY IS TRACED
TO 1EFS HANDS
Witnesses Saw United Rail
Roads Official Pay Gold
LARGE SUMS FROM MINT
Only Ten Days After Disaster Bribe
Money Was Provided Whole
Sheaf of Indictments Is
Due ThU Week.
-PAX FRANCISCO, May 4. (Special.)
Sensational testimony was Riven be
fore th irrartd Jury today by Vnited
Htats Treasury officials. whih laid
bare the details of tne bribery of Abe
Ruef, Mayor Schmtrz and the members
of tbe Board of Supervisors by the
t'nited Railroads. Through the testi
mony of Superintendent laeh of the
Mint, Assistant Treasurer Julius Jacobs,
of the San Francisco Sub-Treasury, and
others. $22."..JO of boodle was traced
from the hands of the United Railroads
to the city officials. several of Acta is
f the I'n't ted Railroads were also
railed as witnesses, but invoked their
ronatitutional right and . refused to
Ore of the most startling pieces of
testimony was that of Mr. Leach, who
told tht grand jury that he personally
iad seen Thorn well M it 11a lly, assistant
to the president of the I'nited Rail
roads, pay foO.'M to Kuef. This was
only the beginning. Other witnesses
completed the ciinin of evidence, which,
Jt is predicted, will result in the indict
ment nt some of the most prominent
officials of the local traction trust.
Saw Huef Keceive Money.
According to the testimony of Mr.
Jjeacli and Cannier Thomas P. Burns
of the Mint. $22".000 was deposited in
the Mint to the credit of President
Iat rick Calhoun, ofvthe United Rail
roads, on April 2S, 1906, just ten days
after the big disaster. All the banks
were closed and the Mint was used
generally for commercial purposes. On
tne very dny that the money arrived
from tiie Enrt Mr. Leach testified today
lie saw Mullally pay over to Ruef $000
in gold. Mr. Leach said there could be
no mistake, lie bad seen the trans
action and had noted it closely.
Following this came the testimony of
2Ur. Burns that early in May, 1906, Mul
lally and Tirey L. Ford, chief eonnsel
for the United Railroads, drew out $50.
. This, it is contended, was part of
the sum which was to go to the Super
visors. A few weeks later, according to
the testimony of Mr. Burns, Ford and
Mull-ally drew out another $50,000.
It was at this point that the testimony
ot Nat Selig became . of interest. Mr.
Srlic is at present employed In the Mint,
but in -the days following the Are he was
employed toy the relief committee. He
wajs stationed in the Mint and received
the relief contributions. Munh of this
money was in currency. Mr. $elig tesli
' fieri that Mullally and Ford came to htm
and offeed to exchange SjO.OOO in gold
for $n0,000 in currency. Mr. Selig testi
lied that he had a great deal of currency
at the time and made the Exchange for
them. The money passed to the Super
visors was currency.
Bought Bonds to Give Grafters.
One of the most interesting features
of the case centers about the balance of
5120.000, which wan then left In the Mint
to the credit of Calhoun. This sum. ac
cording to the theory of the prosecution,
was paid over to Ruef and .Sohmitjs in
the form of bonds of the United Rail
roads. Charles Sutro. a broker, is ex
pected to testify that he purchased bonds
at this time for Calhoun, which sub
sequently found their way into the
pockets of Ruef and Schmitz. Mr. Sutro
wan called to the stand yesterday, but
aked for more time before giving his
testimony. It is the theory of the
prosecution that the deal In regard to the
bonds was arranged at the home of Mul
lally .in this city.
Among the representatives of the Untt
' ed Railroads called by the grand jury
today were William Abbott, an attorney,
Mr. WilHeut. the secretary, and Miss AIc
Iermott. a stenographer. Ford is in Los
Angeles and has been served with a
Grand Jury to Act on United ITail
ronds Case Tuesday.
SAN FRANCISCO. May 4. Following
the refusal yesterday of President Cal
houn and General Manager Mullally to
testify and the subpcnalng by te'egraph
of Chief Counsel Tirey L. Ford in Los
Angeles. If was learned today that it is
the intention of the grand jury to vote
n the returning of bribery indictment?
against certain officers the United Rail
roads some time next week, probably not
later than Thursday.
The number of the prospective Indict
ments to be voted upon next week
with reference to United Railroads of
ficials Is 57. comprising the alleged
complicity of three men in the bribing
of 18 Supervisors, and another and
higher municipal official; and that at
the same time the grand jury will vote
on the returning of IS other indict
ments, charging a political boss with
the same crime in the same deal. The
amount of money, part cash, part
bonds, alleged by the . prosecution to
. have been expended is approximately
When Mr. Calhoun and Mr. Mullally
were before the grand Jury yesterday
the prosecution scrupulously refrained
from asking them any questions touch
ing the bribery charges, after they had
Mated that they would refuse to an
swer, the implied ground Reiner danger
of personal incrimination. The same
. course, it is stated, will be followed
"by the prosecution when Mr. Ford
takes the stand next week. In case he
declines to oe interrogascd.
On Tuerday morning the grand jury
will meet in Judge Coffey's department
of the Superior Court, when William
Abbott, of the United Railroads' law
department, Miv --Francis and Miss Mc
Dermott, stenographers in that depart-
ment, and Secretary Wilcutt. will be
reported to the court as having re
fused to submit to interrogation in tho
urand jury chamber, and the court will
be asked to order them to answer all
questions excepting such as in " the
court's opinion might call for an in
orlrninative answer. All these persons
were before the grand Jury today and
declined to answer questions on The
ground that by answering they might
incriminate one another and some ottl
cials of tne company.
SHOW HOME TELEPHONE BOOKS
Adams Promises Evidence Which
Will Expose Bribery.
AN FRANCISCO, May 4 (Specials j
Another great victory was gained by the
graft prosecutors today when J. H. Ad
ams, of the A dams-Phil Hps Company, of
Los Angeles, the concern that floated the
Home Telephone Company, announced
that he had the books of the company In
his possession and would produce them.
The Home Telephone Company gave it
out a few weeks ago that the books could
not be found. F. J. Heney has spent the
last two weeks in an endeavor to locate
these books, which contain the secrets
of the bribery transactions. Mr. Adams
promised to produce the books In court
when Mr. Heney so ordered.
Mr. Adams Is a millionaire and has been
before the grand jury several times dur
ing the telephone inquiry. .Mr. Heney had
made preparations to begin an action
against the company to force it to pro
duce its books:
HISTORIC TRIAL TQ BEGIN
(Continued from Flmt Pap.)
it became known that the men were
In-custody ' .-
"This is what, has been designated as
the kidna. ins' of the men. It has
been insisted by the friends of the
defendants that tney should have been
permitted to consult rounsel in Den
ver and resist removal by appeal to
the courts. The l tte. on the other
hand, has insisted that' it Is not the
duty of officers to thus in' ite' legal
proceedings after having made an ar
rest on regular extradition papers. Out
of these conflicting contentions ' grew
the legal proceedings which delayed
tin trltils a year. In this connection
it will be interesting to present the
law on the subject, over which there
has been so much ciscussion. or. rath
er, to state the conditions which con
fronted the star-
In the Supreme Court at Washing
ton the cas-s were set for hearing on
October . At that time they were ar
gued, and in December decisions wero
rendered against the petitioners.-' In
conclusion, all the members of the
court concurred excepting Justice 51c
Kenna, i o held that the men had
been kidnaped and were entitled to
their liberty. The majority opinion
was to the effect that nothing im
proper had been done by the officers
and that the state had a perfect right
to remove the men secretly if it could.
Why 'Trial Was Delayed.
The three men were indicted on
March 7, and on March 16 they were
arraigned and pleaded not feuilty. The
next term of court opened on Hay
29. It was expected the cases would
then be brought to trial, as both sides
professed to be ready; but a snag had
been discovered by the prosecution. A
statute of the United States provides
that, when a case is pending on ap
peal from a Circuit Court on habeas
corpus proceedings involving a con
stitutional right, any action of the
State Court In the interim shall be null
and void. This, it was found, had been
construed in the dictum of an opinion
of the Supreme Court as meaning that
the state was prohibited in a case un
der sucli circumstances. It was there
fore held jy the prosecution that it
could not proceed with the trial, -s a
conviction, it wps cortended, would be
set aside, even thoug-. the accused men
should lose in their habeas corpus case.
The state asked the defense to dis
miss It : apper.l from the United States
Circuit .Court and stand on the one
from the State Supreme Court, but the
defense could not see Its way clear to
Therefore, when the court met on May
29. this, --condition was called to the at
tention of Judge Smith. It was . argued
at length but Judge Smith held he was
prohibited from proceeding, and the cases'
went over until after the Supreme Court
should have passed upon the habeas
It has always tbeen insisted' by the de
fense that it was not1 necessary to post
pone the trials and that the action of
the state amounted to denial of the con
stitutional right, to a speedy trial. On
the other hand, the state maintained it
was prohibited from taking another step
and, further, that the defense itself, by
refusing to olsmiss the one appeal which
acted as a bar. relying upon the other
covering just the same ground, has itself
been responsible for the delay.
When -the men appeared in court May
29 their counsel filed two motions, one
asking for a chanee in judge, the other
praying for a change of venue. The
latter motion especially was supported
by a great number of affidavits designed
to show that such prejudice existed in
Canyon County that the accused could
not' get a fair trial there.
As the decision of the Supreme Court
in the habeas corpus cases was not
rendered until December, and as the
claimed bar stood until after the lapse
of 60 days, during which a petition for
rehearing could foe filed, no further pro
ceedings could be had until tho opening
of the term of court at Caldwell on March
12 of this year. In the meantime an
election had been held and Judge Frank
J. Smith was defeated by E. L. Bryan.
The latter had been appointed to defend
Harry Orchard, a circumstance which, in
many minds, made him ineligible to
preside at these trials. Therefore, on the
opening of court. Judge Bryan announced
that, though he was not satisfied he was
disqualified, he had determined to call in
Judge Fremont Wood, of Ada County.
Judge Wood took up the application for
a change of venue. After presentation
of the affidavits and the arguments of
counsel, the Judge announced he was
disposed to make a change, but he wished
to know if the defense would insist upon
the right to again move for a change
after getting into another county. He in
dicated he would move the cases to Ada
County, and when the defense had an
nounced its consent to having them coma
here, an order to that effect was made.
Date of Trial Elxctl.
At the opening of the term here,
Judge Wood, after consulting counsel
on both sides, fixed the date for the
first trial to begin, naming May S. It is
assumed the trial, that of William D.
Haywood, will then begin.
The accused men are confined in the
Ada County Jail in this city. When
they were brought here from Colorado
they were held at Caldwell. The jail
there was entirely inadequate, there
being no proper provisions for the
comfort of the men, and they were
finally settled In the jail here, where
they had as good treatment as possible.
Though they sleep in cells at night,
they have much liberty during the day.
A comfortable room is used by them,
while each day they are outside for an
hour or more. There they can be seen
most any day pitching quoits or walk
ing up and down with their wives, or
rather two of them. Mrs. Haywood not
having been here. The latter is an in
vaWd, but she has now arrived to be
with her husband during his trial.
Harry Orchard, the star witness, has
remained as a guest of Warden Whit
ney at the penitentiary. He is in good
health and has been engaged in writ
ing a book. The murder case against
him has been postponed from time to
time and will stand so until the other
cases have been disposed of.
There have been two interesting
branches of the case which should be
touched upon to make the story com
plete. On February 18. 19(16. Vincent St.
John ww arrested at Burke In this
state and brought to Boise. Nothing
was found against him. however,' and
on March 17 jie was turned over to the
Colorado authorities on & warrant
charging him with murder at Tel
luride. He was afterward freed.
Steve Adams, a man who is said to
have figured conspicuously in -the Col
orado troubles, was arrested at Haines,
Or., on February 20, 1906. On March
1 he also made an alleged confession,
in which, it is said, he covered much
of the same ground as that gone over
by Orchard, adding many stories of a
startling character. He also remained
as a guest of the state at tbe peniten
tiary. In September he had an inter
view with his father-in-law, and sub
sequently ex-Governor John T. Morri
son, acting as his attorney, asked for
a writ of habeas corpus for him. The
state found Adams had determined to
"go back" on his statement, and took
steps to prevent his gaining his lib
erty. In his confession he had nar
rated that he had killed a: man named
Fred Tyler on the St- Joe River, in
Shoshone County, in August, 1904. The
death of the man had always been
somewhat of a mystery, though it had
been charged to 'ack Simpkins. Adams
said the man had been made away
with because he had jumped -Simp-kins'
Adams further said he had gone up
there to consult with - Simpkins about
the proposed murder., of Governor
Steunenberg On that charge a war.
rant was issued and brought here by
Sheriff Sutherland, of Shoshone Coun
ty. He reached Boise before the. application-
for the writ of habeas corpus
had been made, and on September 15
had served his warrant and left with
the accused man. The trip north wae
made overland, as they feared they
would be interfered with by writs of
habeas corpHS if they should take the
railway route through Oregon and
"Washington. When the writ whs is
sued the man wanted could not be

WASHINGTON. May 4. Official in
formation reached the Interstate Com
merce Commission today of the cancel
lation of a traffic agreement entered
into June 18, 1903, between the South
ern Pacific and the San Pedro, Los An
geles & Salt Lake Railroad Companies.
In the opinion of the Commission the
abrogation of the agreement is of the
highest Importance. The facta con
cerning it were developed at the recent
inquiry into the relations of the South
ern Pacific Company with other cor
porations. It was the opinion of sev
eral Interstate Commerce Commission
ers that the agreement was in restraint
of trade and might subject the officials
who entered into it to a prosecution
under the Sherman anti-trust act.
Notification of the abrogation of the
agreement was received in a letter
from R. S. Lovett, of New York, gen
eral counsel of the Southern Pacific
Company. Mr. Lovett assigns as the
reason pr the action the enactment by
the California Legislature of a law
which prohibits contracts restricting

terials This Week.
The Sensational Sale of Millinery From the
Manufacturers and Importers
Some of the "big stores" have skurried 'round their atties and
basements with a fine-tooth comb, raking out their millinery, memories
of former decades, marshaled them all in solid phalanx, and pitted them
gainst this sale in order to meet the prices we've made on the
GRAND CONVENTION OF MILLINERY FASHION AND BEAUTY
Which goes to make up the vast stock of the
ST. FRANCIS MILLINERY CO.
Of Paris, New York and San Francisco,
Now on Slaughter Sale at 326 Washington St.
Next to and over Goddard & Kelly's Shoe Store. Portland women
folk are wise, however, and know the difference between the antedilu
vian styles of competition and the fashionable beauties charming crea
tions and exquisite confections shown here at so trifling cost less
than actual first cost of materials ; and the crowds keep coming. Thou
sands of hats have been sold and tens of thousands more will be sold to
fortunate buyers the eoming week.
$50,000 Worth of Magnificent Millinery
Must Be Sacrificed This Week
LAST CHANCE TO BUY NEW MILLINERY AT FACTORY PRICES
AND LESS! THE END DRAWS NEAR!
All remaining stock must be closed at once sacrifices in prices
slaughtering values condensing lots and compelling massacre is the
order of the day ! "Ignor Cost or Value! " comes now the order from
the owners that's the ultimatum. Phrasing is powerless to describe
the unapproachable bargains ! Thousands of happified customers testify
to having bought for years ahead ! To those who have not availed them
selves of tbe golden opportunity, we'd say "You have your inning
now tomorrow ! "
