"Is the defendant in court?"
Senator John 11. Mitchell was not in
court when Judge Ie Haven ptonouriced
the words quoted from his division in
answer to the motions made latt week
by his attorneys. Senator Mitchell
was represented by Judge Bennett and
ex-Senator Thurston, and while Judge
De Haven did not say that he would
have rendered judgment upon the
senator, had he been in court, it is be
lieved from the fact that he asked if
"the defendant was in court," that he
would have done so. Senator Thurs
ton, when Judge De Haven put his
query, rose and stated that he wished
further time in which to draw up a bill
of exceptions, and he was given until a
week from Monday morning to present
This means another ten days before
Senator Mitchell will have judgment
pronounced upon him. The senator's
counsel informed the court that bv to
morrow they would have their bill of
exceptions ready and in the hands of
United States District Attorney Heney,
so that he might in turn have his
answer ready by the time that the case
will again be taken up by the court.

grant the delay, and as there was no
objection from Mr. Heney, His Honor
set Monday, July 31, as the day for re
ceiving the exceptions.

TIMBER LAND DEALS LEGITIMATE
Testimony of Witnesses that Implied
Contracts Had Been Made Is
BIGGS TESTIFIES FOR DEFENSE.
Vigorously Denies Any Thought of
Portland, July 16. This coming
week, unless some unforeseen accident
should occur, will see the end of the
Representative "Williamson, Dr. Van
Gesner and Marion R. Biggs trial.
Yesterday Marion Biggs, who is the
United States land commissioner, took
the stand in his own behalf, and when
Judge De Haven adjourned court until
Monday morning, he had passed through
the hands of the district attorney. On
the whole, he made a fair witness for
himself, and the two defendants charg
ed jointly with him in the alleged con
spiracy. Lnder the skillful hands of
Attorney Wilson, Biggs told a plausible
story, but District Attorney Henev,
during the course of an extremely rigid
cross examination, tangled the witnesss
up several times.
From the beginning of his testimony
to the end, Biggs contended that he
was innocent of any wrongdoing, and
he denied having any part in the alleg
ed conspiracy of suborning entrymen to
Portland, July 15. Dr. Van Gesner,
partner of Representative Williamson
and Marion li. Biggs, United States
land eomissioner, two of the defendants
in the cane now on trial before Judge
De Haven, testified yesterdav in their
own behalf. Dr. Gesner passed through
the rigid cross examination conducted
by District Attorney Heney, and, al
though his original story was not shak
en much, he was forced into several
admissions that will le used when the
government comes to make its argu.
ment. This morning Marion Biggs
will he subjected to cross examination
and unless court should adjourn at
noon, it is possible that Representative , he argument, in order that it
DIES AT BOISE.
Commander-in-Chief of G. A. R. Was
Boise, Idaho, July 16. General W.
W. Blackmar, commander-in-chief of
the Grand Army of the Republic, died
at 5 o'clock this evening of intestinal
nephritis. His wife was with him
during his illness. The body will be
embalmed and taken to the home of
the family in Boston.
The general arrived here on the 10th
on a tour, during which he intended to
isit Grand Army posts throughout the
Northwest. He was ill when he arriv
ed and gradually failed. The serious
ness of his condition was kept from the
public at the request of his wife.
General Blackmar was bora July 25,
841, at Bristol, Pa. He enlisted in
the Fifteenth Pennsylvania cavalry and
subsequently joined the First west
Virginia. He served with distinction
throughout the war and at Five Forks
was promoted on the field by General
Custer to the rank of captain. Through
the three administrations of Governors
Long, Talbot t and Rice he was judge
advocate general of Massachusetts. At
the last National encampment of the
Grand Army of the Republic he was
Williamson will take the stand
at. Meaner, in answer to the ques
tions asKeti ny Attorney Wilson, gave
his version of the way in which he had
started out to obtain the timber lands
which since have involved him in the
case at bar. He admitted having made
the loan to a number of the entrymen,
out saia teat ne did so in order to pro
tect the property he already had in
that section of the country. Dr. Ges
ner denied that be had any contracts
with the various entrymen, and stated
there had been no conspiracy with Ma
rion Biggs and Representative William
son The witness gave a history of
the war between the sheep and cattle
men, in which the now famous "30-30"
men played such an important part in
the Horse Heaven country. The entry
men, he testified, had first approached
mm anu asxeo mm to Jend the money
with which to file on the claims. He
stated that he agreed to furnish them
me money, providing they would give
him the use of the land for a range for
his sheep. For the use of the range he
had agreed not to charge them interest
on the loans. He said that the sheep
shooters had established a dead line
and in order to protect his property he
was forced to secure more range and
thought that he had gone the right
way about it, when he made the loans
to the entrymen who came to him, and
asked for financial help
Before agreeing to furnish the money
to the entrymen, Dr. Gesner stated that
he had first consulted Biggs and had
engaged him as a lawyer. He also
consulted Attorney Barnes, and had
been assured by both that what be In
tended to do was legal, provided he did
not enter into a contract with the en
trymen before they made their filings.
Judge DeHaven Refuses to Dismiss
Land Fraud Cases.
Portland, July 14. The case of the
United States against Williamson,
tiesner and Higgs will not be dismissed
by the court, nor will the jury 1m In
structed to acquit a prayed for in a
day-long argument by Judge Bennett
and 11. S. Wilson. Hut by the ruling
of Judge De Haven the case will have
to 1h fought out before the jury to the
end. According to the opinion of the
judge, the prosecution has furnished
sulhcient evidence against Williamson
and his associates to warrant his sub
mitting the case to the jury.
Judge Bennett opened the case for
the defense yesterday morning with a
motion to dismiss, owing to insulllcient
evidence to connect the defendants or
to convict them. He asked that the
case be not submitted to the jury, or,
II such had to be done, that the court

hear the positions taken by toth sides
in the controversy. This, it is alleged
by some, was a mistake in the strategy
of the trial, as the influence of the re-

would twul to throw assistance to the
side of the government.
STORM WRECKS TOWNS.
MONOPOLY IS AT AN END.
Destroys tveryming in its Path on
Fairfax. S D., July 14. One of the
wotst Btorms that ever visited the Rose
bud reservation struck the towns of St.
Elmo, Burke, Herrick and Gregory, re
sulting in the death of one person and
the injury of 11 others, two of whom
At St. Elmo three buildings were de
stroyed and Roy McFadden was killed.
At Burke, a few miles north of St
Elmo, ten buildings were destroyed
The home of Mr. Jensen was demolish'
ed and Mr. Jensen, his wife and baby
seiously hurt. Mrs. Jensen and her
child may die.
At Herrick, near by, the entire town
was damaged. Two livery barns, three
stores, a saloon and 21 residences were
entirely destroyed and five persons in
Three large buildings were unroofed
and seven smaller ones destroyed at
Gregory, but no person was injured.
rhe storm was severe over the entire
reservation and several inches of water
fell at the points which suffered most.
Much damage was done to crops and
wries, and most o! the details of the
havoc wrought have been brought in by
messengers from the different towns.
Yield Will Not Be Large, But Quality
Will Be Above Average.
Fruit conditions are now favorable
throughout Oregon. While as a general
thing no fruit will yield a iccord break
ing crop, the quality of the fruit bills
(air to be good and the yield will be
satisfactory from the market stand
point. Apple in all parts of the state
will yield only half a crop, but on ac
count of thin very fact the fruit will he
of much better quality and a more
marketable product than were it a full
crop and the tiees heavily loaded.
In the eastern part of the state,
peaches, pears, prunes and plums will
all yield a crop full, lit Southern Ore
gon and the Wil amette valley, either
of which sections produocs more fruit
than Eastern Oregon, prunes and
plums will yield 70 per cent of a crop,
peaches about (H) per cent, and pear
half a crop. These figures are based
upon careful estimates and ate reliable.
Cherries are everywhere yielding about
75 per cent of a full yield, while small
fruits are yielding a full crop in all
parts of the state.
(rowers and dealers figure o?i 1 20,
000 bales as Oregon's probable hop
yield for 1!'05. This is an increase of
one-third over last year's yield. A part
of this estimated increase is duo to a
larger acreage, but the crop is at least
50 per cent better in amount of growth
now than at this time last year. The
foliage is very heavy, and the hops are
blossoming out now in splendid sha
Of course, everything hinges on climat
io conditions, and the estimate of 120
000 bales, which will be the largest
crop Oregon has overproduced, is hase
upon the supposition that weather con
(Utions will le favotable until the croi
is safely harvested.

Costly Dirt in New York.
New York, July 17. From the ex
empt tax list, as published today in
the City Record, some idea of the value
of earth in that part of the globe cov
ered by New York City may be gath
ered. The total estimated value of
real property which pays no taxes is
more that $1,000,000,000, and it is
safe to say that the real worth of the
property is more than $2,000,000,000.
Adding to this more than $5,000,000,
000 of real estate which was taxed, the
actual value of the city is more than
Rain Ruins Indiana Wheat.
Indianapolis, Ind., July 17. Reports
to the News from all counties of Indi

prevented almost entirely the threshing
of wheat in this state so far. Two
weeks ago Indianians apparently had
the greatest yield of wheat in many
years, but since harvest there has been
rain practically all the time. Returns
so far indicate a yield of 20 bushels to
the acre. The Indiana corn crop will
