carelessness in money matters Is of in
terest. Trincess Louise literally- does not
know what : money . means. - Some -time
ago. during a stay she made in Paris, a
dress which she had ordered was brought
to her hotel. The girl who brought It
was pretty and charmingly dressed, with
that simplicity and grace peculiar to the
little work girl of the Rue de la Pabc.
Princess Louise admired the child and
told her so, and admired, too, a little
silver medal which the girl wore around
her neck. "Perhaps your hishness will
accept It," said the work' girl." "It is a
j medal of the Virgin of Prague." "That is
t too sweet of you," said Princess Louise,
j "and you must let me give you something
; in exchange to put around your neck."
? She gave a necklace - of- pearls, with
j which the girl went off in high glee. She

so, they were fine ones. But one day.

SEATTLE. Wash., iiay 7. iSpeciiti.)
The - members of tf-.e Seattle Civic
l'lans Commission, authorized by a
chaiter amendment adopted at the last
municipal election, have been appointed
by Mayor Gill and have JGO.OOu at their
onimaml, but they will not get ac
tively to work until lef;al proceedings
against them have been settled. Their
authority to act has been confirmed by
Mie Superior Court, and the question
may be appealed.
It is believed that the commission
will not act upon the central park
scheme and that it will oppose a new
seawall proposed to be built at an ex
pense of $17,000,000. The questions of
a civic center near Third and avenue
and James street and the development
C parks and boulevards have been a
fruitful source of contention since the
-South End lias felt that the North End
has been favored. It is expected that
The commission will be able to recon

classes. The list follows: R. H. Thom

rensus Jlay Show 220, 000.
With the llnal report of enumerators,
!t Is generally understood that the. cen
sus or Seattle will not exceed 220.000. One
of the disputed districts was in Ballard,
where the work was carefully rechecked.
During the closing days of the enumera
tion, the civic census bureau was ex
tremely busy, but R. W. Hill, Supervisor,
has contended that his men have made
few mistakes, and that the slips gath
ered by the civic bureau were mainly
Although Seattle's system of Btreet
names ttas been revised a number of
times. It is far from satisfactory. So
many mistakes are made, and there Is so
much confusion, that George F. Russell,
postmaster, has threatened to report the
matter to the Postmaster- ;eneral. If
this is done, the Government may force
the Issue on the basis of free delivery.
W. V. Paddock, chief clerk of the City
Engineer, and C. I. Lynch, chief of the
delivery system at the postoftice, are
evolving a plan. They would make First
avenue the north and south dividing line
and Vesler Way the east and west divid
ing line, with all streets to be named
Rnd all avenues numbered.
Sane Fourth Is Asked For.
If an ordinance prepared by Council
man Goddard Is passed, Seattle will go
on record for a safe and sane Fourth of
July. The bill, which will be consid
ered during the week, will forbid the
use of giant firecrackers, canes and
other dangerous noise-makers, but will
afford Young America an opportunity
to celebrate with due hilarity.
A grand jury called by Federal
Judge C. II. Hanford has objected to
its quarters as tinsanitary, and as a re
sult the inquisitorial body may be con
vened in Tacoma instead of this city.
Repairs to the Jury room, as stated in
the report to the court, will cost about
i I 2,000.
Preliminary work on the new Lake
I'nion belt line has begun with the raz
ing of buildings along the right-of-way
and the depot site on Terry avenue. It
is expected that the improvements will
be completed within a year.
Dos Owners Are til Terror.
Dog-poisoners, who continue to deci
mate canines, still go undetected, and
ow-ners of valuable animals are in a
state of panic. Most extraordinary
precautions have been taken to protect
1 he dogs at the show now open in
Mammoth Kink. The Queen Anne dis
trict has lost 60 dogs, Yesler Way 35,
and Rainier Beach 50, while from other
parts of the city come reports of fatal
ities. Tom Lloyd, of Fairbanks, will bo
called upon to defend his claim to hav
ing ascended Mount McKinley. Herschel
l". Parker, of the expedition which has
just sailed for Alaska, discounts the
report as a most improbable yarn.
"From what I have read," he says, "it's
just as probable that Lloyd reached th
summit as that Cook reached the Pole."
lIvles'Pokecl in Story.
Belmore Brown says: "I have Just
received word that Lloyd was backed
by a Fairbanks saloonkeeper and gam
bler named Heebie, who sent them
out with the understanding that they
were to bring hack the peak or the
story. Why, everyone knows that
Lloyd has been dead broke for a year,
waiting for someone to grubstake hiru.
All those fellows have dog teams, so
the trip probably stood them only a
couple of hundred dollars."
In an effort to prove the story false,

pole, four Inches In diameter, to the 1

"Of course, there is the chance that !
Lloyd might have been misquoted on i
this point," continued Professor Park- 1
er, "but there are a dozen other things !n I
rhe story which don't hold water. For i
Instance, it s absurd to say the moun- j

add a dozen other facts. Suffice It to say
that we feel confident that if we rea h I

Witnesses Tell of Furnishing Oil, of
Hearing Boat, and of Golil's An
ger When Hadberg's Clotli Was Put Away.
MO.STESAXO. Wash.. May 7. Cor
roborative testimony seklng -to - show
the presence of Gohl and Klingenberg
at Indian Crek the night the .'murder of
John Hadberg is alleged to. have oc
curred there, "consumed the afternoon
session- ot the Gohl murder trial here
Captain H. Smith, of the schooner A.
J. West, " aboard which Klingenberg
made his last trip, swore to Klingen
berg's' absence from the' ' vessel the
night of December 21,. when the killing
is said to have ben" done. !
He told'of meeting Gohl and Klingen
berg the next morning and testified
that Gohl. -had said that Klingenberg
had ben down the bay. lookins for a
stolen compass."
The captain Bai dthat Gohl made an
urgent plea that Klingenberg be taken
back, adding that if there had ben any
loss" by the.' sailor's' absence that he
Would'' reimburse" the captain. '-
Frank Farron- testified that on the
night of December 2t he gave Gohl a
can of oil to be used In the launch
Patrol. George Martello, then Deputy
Game Warden, said on the stand that
he went down the bay himself Decem
ber 21 to make an arrest and that he
met Gohl, who said he also was going
down that night. Patrolman Joe
Searles, of Aberdeen, testified to see
ing Gohl and Klingenberg in a. saloon
in South- -Aberdeen --the morning of
December ' 22, arid that ' the two men
had taken the" II ""o'clock" streetcar to
town. This latter statement was sup
ported by Motorman William Auer and
Conductor Johnny Neilson, of the 11
o'clock car on that day, who testified
to bringing the men to Aberdeen.
Waldemar-Neilson. a fisherman, tes
tified that- two days after the alleged
murder Gohl came down to his shack
and engaged him to take him down to
Hadberg's cabin, on ' Indian Creek.
Neilson said on the stand that Gohl
proceeded to take all of Hadberg's
possessions from the shack, but after
their getting into the sloop head
winds prevented the return to Aber
deen, anl they were forced to leave the
boat at Robinson Creek.
The next morning, George McDonald
and Jim Marshall, living at Robinson
Creek, took the clothes and placed them
in their, shack, fearing that the articles
would be stolen if left in the open boat.
Gohl, on coming down a day or so
later, displayed great . anger at finding
what they had done but cooled down
when they explained their motive. Mc
Donald and Marshall corroborated this
statement. "-'.-. ;. .' -.
Other witnesses were called to show
that Gohl had told .them that Hadberg
and Hoffman had 'both, gone to Alaska,
where he had secured jobs for them with
a lighthouse contractor. .'.-
Paddy McHugh, a saJoonman of Aber
deen, testified that the defendant told
him on December, 1909,. that he was go
ing down the bay to Indian Creek to
kill Hadberg and John '.. Hoffman. Mc
Hugh also testified that on December 22,
Gohl called him aside and said: "Well,
we landed those fellows last night. Hoff
man was pretty tough. John Kllngberg
was with me."
The defense asked the witness whether
Gohl ever left money for safekeeping in
his safe and the witness said that sev
eral times he left from $200 to $300 with
him overnight. The defense - . asked
whether Gohl had' deposited",$1900 with
him prior to his. arrest and that on de
mand he had refused 'to pay the money.
Tha witness denied this.
The defense went into detail in croBs
examlnation concerning the finding of
the body of J. !B.' Meers, a former tim
ber cruiser, taken from Wishkah River
near McHugh's saloon. . Meers disap
peared in February and the body was
found in; May. He had $1700 -when last
seen alive.
Oswald Betl testified to hearing shots
fired - from a gasoline launch which he
recognized -by .the exhaust as the launch
Patrol, tlie property of Gohl.
One feature of the trial is the fact
that Captain H. Smith, of the A. J.
West, one of the witnesses for the state.
Is a brother of Captain T. Smith, manter
of the Resolute, from which schooner
Gohl ;is "said to have stolen a compsss.
The Hesolute's master has been called
as a witness for the' defense and the two
brothers are on ' opposing sides, although
Captain T. Sin 1th declares - that he does
not know .why lie has been called.
