fully realise that no man la above tho

Justify a trial, presumably guilty of any
Illegal act, I would bo tho first to proas
auto him, if- it lay -wlthlnr the duty of
my office to do ao. But, after havlng
carefully Investigated tho evidence upon
which thla Indictment waa predicated,
I find nothing agalnat Mayor Williams
that would warrant ma as district attor
ney of thla county, unbiased and unpre
judiced la every particular, to put tho
county to the expense of trying thla case
by a, jury, when I am satisfied that aay
Jury would and -ought -to acquit -the
mayor.:: And. furthermore, I believe that
a majority of tho grand Jury who had
Mayor Will lama Indicted did it without
giving proper attention to the testimony-
which waa submitted to them,
and, under the circumstances, I am com
pelled to recommend that the Indictment
agalnat tha Hon. George H. Williams,
mayor of our elty; be dismissed, and
that ho bo fully exonerated of any of-,
f enso charged in the Indictment."

Chairman Burton, continue to assert
that there wlU bo a bill of some sort,
but state that It possibly may aot carry
more than $11,000,009 actual appropria

of framing the blU which will aerva to

Two. masked highwaymen dressed in

laat night on tho Base Line road at the
corner of Forty-eighth street for the
coming; ao tho officers believe, of Tred
Van Kirk, who lives at thataorner. Mr.
Van Kirk, who la a member, of tha firm
ot Van Kirk ft. Bridges, of tha Yakima
market on. First street, has been in the
habit of carrying a aum of money home
on Saturday nights. .A few days ago
the firm sold the business, and thla gave
reason for tho supposition that ha might
have more money in hla possession than
usual. -
At 1:1S o'clock. Adna A.' Fogg, who

held up Mr. Fogg.
They - shot him
lng by the flash
of tha revolver, so it is believed, that
they had made a mistake In the selection
of their vlotlm, they auickly disappeared
without attempting robbery.
Mr. Fogg, carrying a .t-callber' bullet
in hla foot and bleeding profusely from
tha wound, made, hla way to hla houae
and - telephoned for a physician, who
later removed tho bullet. , The, ball en
tered at tha heel and waa taken out of
tha front of tho foot. Van Kirk arrived
half an hour afterward and notified
Sheriff Word. . ... ,
Mr. Fogg oould give only a vague de
scription of tha men.' There were two
of them, one a tail man and tha other of
medium height Both wore black cloth
masks, overcoats aad .atifx-hata, The
tall man a hat waa decorated with feath
