Vigorous efforts of Attor

Portland, Sept. i0. The sensational
feature of tho WiUiampon-Gesner-Bigga
case yesterday was the admission 'by
Judge Hunt of a ikioof testimony that
had been excluded tby .Judge Do Haven
in tho previous two trials, and wb
had also declined fk permit United
States District Attorney Honey to argue'
tho distinctions existing between the
various title papers. Replying to an
inquiry from tho court, Honey assured
Judge Hunt that he had mot been per
rnitted to "get beyond ike front door"
with any of his authorities bearing
upon the admissibility of tAie evidence.
Tho question came up in tho courso
of the direct examination of Benjamin
F. Jones, a government witness. At
torney Bennett, for the defease made a
vigoruos effort to exclude tho testimony,
and took an exception to the ruling of
The indictment charges that the con
spiracy was to Induce a large number
of persons to commit the offense of per
jury by taking their oaths that they
would depose truly that certain decla
rations and depositions by them to be
subscribed were true, which in fact
contained material matters which were
not true, and which they did not at
the time believe to be true, to the effect
mat certain lands wnicn tnese persons
would then be applying to enter end
purchase in the manner provided by
law, were not being purchased by them
on speculation, .but were being pur
chased in good faith to be appropriated
to tne use and oeneut 01 tnose personB
respectively, and that they had not, di
rectly or indirectly, made any agree
ment or contract, in any way or man
ner, with any other person or persons
whomsoever, by which the titles which
they might acquire from the United
States in and to such lands should in
ure, in whole or in part, to the benefit
of any pejson egxeept themselves, when
in truth and in fact such persons would
be applying to purchase buch lands on
speculation, and would have made ar
rangements and contracts with Wil
liamson, Gesner and Biggs to convey
the titles bo obtained by them to Wil
liamson and Gesner.

real attitude of Japan on the question
of maintaining the "open door" in
Manchuria. The secretary will ask
Japan for permission to locate a con'Bul

that country. He will make the same
request for a consul at Harbin, which

STRIPES TO BE DISCARDED.
Orescon Convicts Will Wear 'Uniform
.of Bluish Gray In Future.
Salem Stripso havo boon aoandonedj
as prison garb in Oregon, and soon as;
as thO'Cbango can bo effected without
throwing away good clothing, practical
ly all tho convicts will wear uniforms
of a bluish gray. Tho change has iboon
ordered tin tho interests of discipline
and reformation, and stripes will bo
placed upon a prisoner only as a moans
It is expected that the uniforms now
in use will bo sufficiently worn by Abo
end of thovyear to justify their boing
discarded. "Many suits havo already
boon cast away and all now prlsosors
aro given mixta of gray. When Uio
change has been perfected every prison
er will bo drossod in gray trousers
shirt, blouso and cap and this uniform
will bo worn .during good behavior.
For infraction of prison rules a con
Svict may bo .condemned to wear i
striped suit for .a -specified time or until
his conduct improves. This punish
went, it Ib thought, will bo sufficient
to reduce all ordinary violations of
rules to tho minimum. It is thought
that out of 350 convicts not moro than
a uoren will wear stripes at any ono
time. This system is in ubo in Now
York, and is said to give satisfactory
It has been suggested that prisoners
would moro easily escape U tlioy wear
gray suits than they could if dressed in
stripes. The prison officials say that
experience shows tliat convicts who es
cape manage to exchange their prison
garb for civilian clothing as soon as
they get out. so it will make no differ
ence what their uniforms are. At the
time of a break, if one were made, the
gray suits could be distinguished as far
as they could be seen, and this would
be all tho advanatce etripcd suits havo
over ordinary clothing.

firmed, that the few mission churches

The temper of the mob is shown by
the fact that there are now more than
200 badly wounded policemen in the
hospitals and more are being taken

of the 1,104 election districts of the
city, whose duty it is to place in voting

eral days. The secretary of the City
party tonight estimated that at least
48,000 names had been dropped.
Russia Putting Treaty Into Effect.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 8. The news
of the Bigning of the peace treaty re

the end that every provision of the
treaty shall be understood thoroughly
by each minister, particularly on its
bearing on the changes provided for by

France Ready to Act.
Paris, Sept. 8. The government still
awaits word from Fez regarding the
sultan's answer to the second ulti
matum to Morocco, the time limit of

Klamath Falls It now seems l'kely
that a limit will be set for the time on
which excess land holders in tho Kla

excees trust deeds. So far the Klamath
Water Users association has been un
able to get all of the large landowners
to sign up and become members o( the

Grants Pass The completion of the
assessment roll foi Josephine county
shows a total valuation on assessable
property double that of last year. In
1904 the valuation was 2,U34,u&;
this year it is over 4,000,000. This
remarkable showing is the result of
both the rapid growth of the county
and of Assessor Fallin'a policy of as
sessing all property to its full cash val
ue. This will mean a lowering of the
tax rate. The valuation of much of
the property of the county remains un
changed, but many of the mines, city
property and railroad landsjwere raised.

hopgrowers of Josephine county, have
sold their last year's crop of 60,000
pounds at 18 cents. They had an op
portunity to unload their crop last fall

Sonators Find Him Obstacle to Pro
gross on Canal Committee.
Washington, Sept. 0. Whon tho
committees of tho United States senate
are boing reorganized next December a
fight is to bo made to wrest tho chair
manship of tho isthmian canal commit
tee from Senator Mitchell of Oregon.
Because of the prominence which canal
legislation is likely to attain at the
coming session, it is desirable that the
sonato committeo should bo in tho
hands of some good strong man, fully
competent to conduct hearings, direct
tho work of the committeo and assumo
charge of whatover canal legislation
may bo reported to tho sonato. It is
recognized that Senator Mitcholl ran do
none of these things. Therefore there
is a goncral desire that a now chairman
Even though ho did not caro to re
sign his seat in the senate, Mr. Mitzholl
might relinquish his chairmanship In
order that there need bo no fight to pry
urn loose. This would simplify the
situation and mako way (or some other
and more active man. But it ia not
belioved that Sonator Mitchell will
pursue this courso. It will bo up to
the "committee on committees" to
solve this problem, and it would bo a
ong guess indeed to attempt to predict
what that committeo will do.

tho lava is solidifying on the surface.
