I l itlted States District Attorney. John
Hall was then notified that the jury
desired him to sppear before them as
a witness, and he went st once Into the
jury room. Mr. Hall's examination last
ed over half an hour. The nature of
the questions asked him Is not known,
but It Is regarded as significant that
( he should have been called as a witness.
It Is conjectured that Mr Hall has
knowledge of certain transactions In
which George C. Browhell was Involved
and which are now being subjected to
the grand Jury's scrutiny.
Since the conduct of the present In-
, vestlgatlon was taken out of Mr. Hall's

STOCKMEN EVADE LAW.
and Use Tancouver Perry.
Although steamboat men are not al
lowed to curry cattle from Oregon into
Washington unless ths owners have cer
tificates showing ths stock in a healthy
condition, they claim that this is done
regularly by those operating the Van
couver ferryboat. J. V. Harrison, agent
for the Kamra line of steamers, says:
'1 refuse to handle the stock, but ths
qwner usually drives the snlmnls across
the peninsula and takes them acroaa the
river on the ferryboat. He never stops
to have the animals Inspected. The mat
ter has been called to the attention of
the Washington veterinarian, and he has
promised to put a stop to the traffic.
And there the matter resta."
It is a Waahlngton law recently en
acted which It is alleged la being evaded.
It provldea that neither a hnrae nor a
cow may he taken rrom Oregon to waan
