Second Trial o! Land Fraud Case
30 BALLOTS WITHOUT CHANGE
Proposal to Convict Getner and Biggs
and Clear Williamson Wat De
feated by One Juror.
Portland, Aug 5. John X. William
son, Dr. Van Gesner and Marion K.
Biggswill have to face trial on August
28 for the third time, on the charge of
conspiracy to sultorn perjury. After
having strived for 45 hours to reach
some conclusion, the jury in the Wil
liamson case came into court, and upon
its own request was discharged by
Judge IV Haven. At only one time did
the government cause hold the majority
vote, that lning during the first three
ballots, when seven of the jurors voted
to acquit, the vote then changing to six
for conviction and an equal number tot
acquittal, where it hung without in
terruption through 30 ballots. At an
other time those voting to acquit pro
posed to their comrades to convict Ges
ner and Biggs, provided Williamson
should be acquitted, but Henry J.
Keene would not consent to the agree
ment, and no change was made in the
vote. George Kirk, after having votetl
for three times to convict, changed his
ballot to the other ham! and refused to
make another decision. According to
the story told by several of the jurors,
it was apparent early in the course of
the deliberations that no verdict could
be readied, and the sulueqiient ballots
were taken more as a matter of form
than with the expectation that any
change would le shown.
The bone of contention seemed to be
in regard to the existence of a contract.
and in the question of intention on the
part of the defendants to do wrong.

Nome People Much Exercised and
Threaten Drastic Measures.
Seattle, Aug 5. Advices received in
this city tonight from Nome by the
steamship Ohio state that the people of
Nome are up in arms against the gov
ernment officials and their actions in
filing upon valuable mining claims.
The Nome Nugget in a long article
charges the officials with using illegal
methods and taking advantage of their
position to possess themselves of many
valuable claims which are obtained by
relocating. The Nugget prints com
parative tables showing the number of
Claims held by the government officials
and their relatives or assistants, and

canal, according to the reports brought
to Seattle this afternoon by the steamer
City of Seattle, of the Pacific Coast
Steamship company's fleet.
Captain Charles O'Brien, master of
the Seattle, states that since the short
rains which served to extinguish the
forest fires which burned in that part
of the country a month or more ago,
the weather has been hot and dry, and
that the fires have started up again,
and are as bad as before.
The forests are on fire both on the
islands which till the inside passage
and along the mainland, and unless
rain falls soon it is feared that the tim
ber lues will be serious.

QUARANTINED ON ALL SIDES
Militia and Armed Pottet Block All
Travel Through South.
New Orleans, Aug. 4. The excite
ment in the country districts seems to
have grown more acute with the dis
covery of casB at various points. In
this connection the doctors are disposed
to question whether all the cases that
appear can properly be traced to New
Orleans. A whole train load of passengers on
the Iron Mountain road has leen held
up in Concordia Parish, removed from
any habitation, for some time. The
passengers have leen loud in their tele
graphic protests to the Railroad com
mission, declaring that they have had
neither food nor water, and that noth
ing has been done to relieve them from
a distressing situation. F.fTorts are le
ing made to move the train.
Monroe, I-a., with fever on three
sides of her, has put militia and armed
citizens on every road leading into her
limits. New Ileria, I-a., has decided
to guard against infection by the use of
titles. Many of the smaller towns are
passing mosquito ordinances.
Alexandria has completely liottled
herself up, but in order to save herself
and the parish from starvation she has
permitted the running of a train, thor
oughly fumigated, three times a week
to bring in provisions and other sup
plies. DISCHARGE LIKELY.
Second Jury In Land Fraud Catet
Seemt Likely to Ditagree.
Portland, Aug. 4. Afrter 33 hours
of argument and ineffectual endeavor
to agree upon a verdict, the twelve
weary men on the Williamson-Grtiner-Biggs
jury went to what rest could lie
gained in the crowded and stuffy jury
room last night at 11 o'clock. Seven
of the men, so it is rumored, hold that
the defendants have not been proved to
have committed the crime charged in
the indictment and wish to return a
verdict in accordance with their belief.
Five men hold the opposite, that crime
has been proved by the evidence of the
government, and wish to return a ver
dict of gulity. One other story has it
that the jury is evenly divided, six
men wishing to convict and six to
acqit. Whether or not either of these
stories is true, the fact remains that
there is a serious disagreement, and as
time has passed, the conviction has
growing around the Federal building
that there will be no verdict returned.
Tear Off American Coatt.
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 4. Advices
from Canton state that, when a dele
gate of the Chinese boycott movement
against America was explaining to stu
dents in Canton schools the nature of
the agitation, he pointed out that many
students wore tunics made of American
cloth. These were at once torn from
the backs of the students. Various
vernacular Chinese papers have given
notice that no American business no
tices or any news regarding Americans
was to be published in their pajicrs
after July 18.

result of the conference is to be the in
terstate investigation of all large insur
ance companies, so that alleged misap
plication of fundi and mismanagement

Only Fag Enda of Strike Remain,
Chicago, Aug. 4. Police have been
removed from the wagons of many firms
thatliave been strikebound for four
months. Correspondingly many union
