DR. BUCHANAN fcLECTROCUTED
A Determined Fight. Made to Save

BDokane. Wash.. July t Two sensation
al arrests were made tttr today In con

fraud the government by Issuing illegal
Chinese registration certificates. Those
arrested are James Graham, register of
the land office, Coeur r Alene City, and
Edward Rick. Warrants are also in the
hands of the deputy United States mar

and Harry Tolton, formerly of thl city,
but now of Kendriek, Idaho. The com
plaints are sworn to by F. D. Schuyler,
the Chinese Inspector recently sent out
by. the treasury department at Washing

It has been known for some time past
that a conspiracy existed and tout begun
certificates had been issued by persons
in this section of the state and In Idaho,
and the treasury department detailed Mr.
Schuyler to come here' and investigate
the matter. Three hundred bogus cvrt
tllicates have been printed by the con
spirators, bat how many have been put
in circulation has not yet been ascer

Graham Is one of the chief Instigators

having the certificates made, and that
Rick was employed to engrave the seal
from a sketch made by Pollard, and that

several others not yet arrested, did the

Graham said: "I wUs astonished today

New York, July 1. Seldom, if ever be
fore in the history of criminal procedure
In this country, has there been such a
determined and untiring legai fight made
to save or prolong the Jlfe of a con.
demned murderer as that which was
made to behalf of Dr. R. W. Buchanan,
the convicted wife poisoner, who was
electrocuted today. Buchanan has prac
tically been on the 'threshold of the death
cell no less than three times since he
Dr. R. W. Buchanan, began business as
a drug clerk in Halifax, N. S. He was
a graduate of the College of Physicians,
Chicago, and also of the University of
Edlnburg, Scotland. He marrkd Miss
Helen J. Patterson, and they went to New
York to live. He soon became dissipated
and they separated. After a divorce he
married Annie Sutherland, a wealthy
sporting womUiii old enough to be his
mother. She became 111 in April, 1692, and
two witnesses saw t'hke doctor give his
wife two spoonsful ot medicine and the
next night she died. At the funeral he
laughed and joked and told many people
that the dead woman had left him $10,000.
In one month he secretly re-married his
divorced wife In Halifax, N. 8., and they
returned to New York under tan assumed
name. As the facts leaked out through
the papers Buchanan became frightened
and spread the report that the deceased
woman, was addicted to the- morphine
habit. In a burst of confidence he said
to a friend: ''I wish to God I had cre
mated her; then the newspapers and
authorities could go to hell." On June 6th
the body was disinterred and an autopsy
held. The following day Buchanan was
arrested on a charge of murder. His trial
cost the county about $30,000.

Trial of the Suit Against II. W.
NOMINAL DAMAGES ASSESSED
Jury Examine the Property and Af
ter Hearing Witnesses Assess
- Damages at $75.
The suit of the Astoria and Columbia
River Railway vs. H. W. Corbett et. el.,
for right of way through the lUtter's
dock property below, tha Parker House
occupied the entire attention of the cir
cuit court yesterday.
A special jury was selected from resi
dents of the surrounding country in Clat
sop county and the larger part of the
day was consumed la the examination of
witnesses as to the value of the property
ind the'benents to be derived by its own
er from the building of the railroad. A
large number of witnesses were examined,
among them Dr. A. Kinney and D. K.
Warren, for the road; and Mr. Corbett in
his own behalf and Mr. Glllett, of Port
land, for the defense. The evidence for
the defense largely showed that the prop
erty in its present condition was not
worth a largo sum land that it was not
producing much Income; ' that it would
undoubtedly be mode valuable and a' pro
fit producer with the advent of the rail
road. The jiuy went In a body about
noon and examined! the property, through
which a fifty-foot: right of way Is (asked.
Mr. Corbett in his defense claimed $,000
damages by reason of tho loss of the
fifty -foot strip.
In the late afternoon counsel made their
arguments. C. W. Fulton and Judge Tay
lor appeared for the railroad and Judge
StrUhan for Mr. Corbett. Judge Taylor
opened the case by arguing the points
of law and citing the authorities in sup
port of their suit. He stated to the Jury
the bearing of the law upon the matters
at Issue and the points of evidence ad
duced in the trial. In .terse and well
chosen language he drew the naturul de
ductions to be made from the evidence
and the law and rested his argument.
Judge Strahan replied and pointed out
some difference of opinion in the authori
ties and In his talk to the Jury stated that
it was not possible to reullze the rosy
hued picture of prosperity drawn by some
ot the witnesses and that while he heartily-wished
alt of the prosperity and
happiness, mapped out by the projectors
of the railroad might be realized, yet the
cold foot remained the mere building of
the little road to Goble to connect with
the defunct Northern Pactflo would not
accomplish the desired result. He con
tended - tlitit the measure of damages
to be awarded his client must be guaged
by the market value of the property and
that other considerations did not much
enter Into the problem.
Mr. C. W. Fulton, for the railroad, then
made his argument In rebuttal. He show
ed the property through which right of
way was desired was only a whUrfage
privilege and not a fee simple title; that
the property was on the Columbia river
below low "Water tide mark and to which
all had a certain right; that Mr. Corbett
held Ian undivided one-half Interest in
same; that the other owner had donated
his interest to the railroad, in the strip
claimed, and that it was a question which
half Mr. Corbett owned. He further
stated that the evidence showed that the
wharf was In ta. dilapidated condition and
had been standing since 1867, that It, had
cost the owner much money In repairs
ana taxes, out had brought in no com.
mensurate income and never would un

Mr. Fulton further said that Mr. Cor
