Portland, Juno 13. Under flrn be

II. Mitchell of accepting a fee for serv
ices performed while United Hlnten
senator. Severe in their denunciations
of the ihxniructit which sets forth the
government cane wero tho altorneyn for
the defense. Serene in hln denials that
Haws roiihl bo picked in lino after lino
of the government's nceiisatlous was
United States District Attorney Hcney.
(I rave, dignified and attentive, while
the attorneys unmasked their legal bat

who now has tho power to bring tlio
enso of tho United Statcn agalunt Senat
or Mitchell to a sudden termination,
for a 1 1 nit at least, or to can no tho trial
to proceed to Itn conclusion and conse

statutes. The Isniio yesterday was the
legality of the Indictment Itsoli, und
the principal arguments of the defense
wore that tho document was loosely
drawn, that If tried on its Indefinite al
legations Senator Mljchcll might bo
ngalh placed in jeopardy, and above all,
that tho Indictment did not oven nllego
that Mr. Mitchell was a senator at the
time of the commission of too crime
At tho conclusion of tho arguments,
Judge Do Haven took tho matter under

Chicago, Juno 13, Tho Fanners'
Packing company lias been organized
fur tliu purKno of eompetinp with tho
local aud other packers. Its capital
stock was placed at (l,r00,000. The
organisation is composed of livestock
dealers, retail butchers aud farmers.
It is the intention of tho company to
operate in Chicago and it ban secured
an option on ten acres ot land and a
lacking plant near tho Hawthorne race
track, which it will oerate, and ox
pects to purchase 300 acres on which to
erect a mammoth plant.
Dying Natural Death.
Chicago, Juno 13. The teamsters'
strike ban como to the stage where it
will die a natural death unless new
lilo Is Injected into it by tho strikers.
During the past 24 hours nothing of
any lmortanco has developed, neither
side to the controversy having mado
any aggressive move. According to
tho employeaa involved In tho trouble,
they have succeeded in getting their
business almost back to normal condi
tions. Tlio teamsters aro doing abso
lutely nothing In tho strike, not a move
being made for peaco.
Not All Plain Sailing Yet.
Paris, Juno 13, Opinion in official
and diplomatic quarters heio is becom
ing rather pessimistic as to tho out
come of tho caco movement, owing to
tliu St. Petersburg dispatches showing
the reserved attitude of llussla and the
activity of tho war party. A special
dispatch to tho ecml-olllcial Temps says
tliu influential ltusslans font) lug the
war element aro fnaklng a Btrong rally,
being reinforced by protests against
peace telegraphed from tho Held by
(loueral I.lnlevitch aud all tho division
Generals Eager to Fight.
St. Petersburg, Juno 13. Russia's
generals in command of tho forces nt

tlio czar n strong protest, signed by nil
of Ids generals, against peacemaking nt
tho nrseent moment. Ho stated that.
after hearing of tliu opening of negotia

CALIFORNIA LAND FRAUDB.
Honey 8ayi They are Worse Than
Those of Oregon.
San Francisco, Juno 12. Grave
charges havo been mndo against the
officials of tho state land olllco by
Francis J. Heney, Tho government
attorney linn reported to Washington
that conditions In California are oven
worse than those In Oregon, in connec
tion with whhih United Mates Senator
Mitchell and Representative Hermann
wero Indicted by n Federal grand jury.
He ban mado accusations against men
in state offices, asserting that they have
lceu In leagtib with tlio speculators,
such as John A. Ilenson and Frederick
A. Hydo, who havo fraudulently ac
quired vast tracts of the public lands in
"The trouble lien In tho state land
officu itself," said Mr. Heney. "The
olllco has Ixurn hand in glovo with the
ring aud any pretense of ignorance In
regard to the schemes of graft which
have been carried out is absurd. The
ring has received favorn from tho office
over since the last election, and as a re
sult two-thirds of tlio stale's valuable
timber lands have been stolen. The
speculators havo been in possession all
along of advance information. This
has been especially noticeable in the
matter of tho creation of forest re
servos. Two suiKirintcndcntn have con
fessed that they wero bribed to make
tho reserves cover as much vacant
school land as po'slbln. This land was
practical 1 worthless, all tho good
school land having been taken up.
Some of it lies on tho top of crags and
wan useless for any purpose except the
creation of scrip. Hut those who filed
on tho land for $1.25 an acre could dis
pose of their holdings for $4.50 an acre
an soon as they wero Included in a for
est reserve. And they often could do
even better than that, by taking tip
lieu lands in tho best part of the timber
WILL ASK GUARANTEE.
Japan Would Bind Russia to a Strict
Observance of Treaty.
Toklo, Juno 12. On tho ability of
llussla to offer a sufficient guarantee
that site will live up to any treaty of
pence arranged hinges Japan's willing
ness to bring the war to an end. This
statement is mado on the authority of
one of the best known Japanese states
men, on condition thut his identity be
"Japan wants peace," he said, "but
she will not bo made a fool of by Rus
sia. That nation must agree to keep
her hands off the Far Kast for a long
term of years, and her treaty must con
tain some clauses which effectively pre
clude her resuming hostilities when
her army and navy aro rehabilittated,
and such clauses must be of such char
acter that they cannot lightly bo dis
regarded. Kven at tho present time,
when her navy has been entirely
wiped off the face of the waters and her
army bus Wen disrupted and placed on
tho defensive at all points, wo hear
from our secret agents in St. Petersburg
that tlio advocates of a war policy urge
tho czar, if he feels that ho must sub
scribe to peace terms, to refuse to com
mit Russia to any policy of disarming
that would prevent tho execution of
contractu for new warships of all classes
which wero made with German and
American firms of shipbuilders.
SWEDISH ANGER RISING.
Norway Accused of Ignoring Rights of
Sweden by Her Action.'
Stockholm, Juno 12, It is impossi
ble to forecast Swedish policy in rela
tion to tlio Norwegian rebellion but
signs aro lacking of any willing acqui
escence therein. Tho king, crown
prince nnd many others, official and
unofficial, aro disposed to regard the
acta of Clulstlania an thoso of a rebel
lious cotiere of politicians which can
not bo considered as necessarily repre
senting tho will of tho Norwegian peo
ple. However, it is difficult to see
how an official protest can bo mado,
slnco nothing short of a successful war
is likely to restore tho situation. In
all, responsible men hesitate to com
mand such a course. That this hesita
tion will survive tho heat of a parlia
mentary session may bo slightly doubt
ful. Butte County Canal Open.
Grldley, Cai., Juno 12. With the
opening of the headgates and tho turn
iiii on of tho water into the llutto
county canal today, what is probably
tho most Important irrigation enter
priso In Northern California is now in
working order. There wero no hitches
or accidents, the river pouring its water
into the canal as tho gates wero raised.
Tho canal is 14 miles long, 30 foot wide
on the bottom and carries 25,000 Inches
of water, equivalent to 500 cubic feet,
a second, and will Irrigate 80,000 acrea
of lino land,
Great Drydock Launched.
Italtimoro, Juno 12. Tho govern
ment drydock recently built by the
Maryland Steel company at Sparrow's
Point, which will bo towed to Manila,
was successfully floated today. Miss
Kndlcott, daughter 'of Rear Admiral
Ktulicott, christened tho new vessel
"Dewev." Tho Dewey is tlio largest
floating dock in tlio world. It will lift
25,400 tons and cost $1,125,000. Its
construction required 500 men con
stantly at work.
Gasoline Cars the Thing.
Chicago, Juno 12. The management
of.tho Ilarrlman lines Jias ordered six
additional ' gimollno motors to boused
on tholr branch lines. Tho original
motor has proved such nn emlnonUsuo
ceaa that it has been decided to use
t motors eventually on all brancbjline

EWH..BF3 mm m W-
Tlio now railroad bridge over tlio Mississippi Ulver at Thebes, III., is
not longer nor more picturesque than other railway bridges across tlio Ml
slsslppl, but It Is one of Uie moit important. It wan planned and constructed,
not by tlio manager of ono railway, but of several, and was located not
with ono railway In mind, but with the trade of two great section In mind.
Tho structure recently completed In ono of the fifteen great railway
bridged crossing the Mississippi, and In probably the moat substantial struc
ture ever thrown ncroM the gnat river. Tho fact that tho approaches nro of
concrete contributes greatly to the scrvlccablenesn of the bridgo. The experi
ence of the Inst ten years has shown that concrete stand against floods
bettor than stone or any other material, and in this particular nnd in tlio
character of tho structural work the bridge at Thebes represents tho best
results of modern experience and engineering skill.
Tho bridgo was placed whore tho engineers directed nnd the railway Jn
torstcd nro to come to It It waa built to accommodate a great freight traffic,
ami In tliUi particular has advantage over bridges built at nn earlier date.
It open a now line of direct communication between Chlcngo and the South
wost by way of southern Illinois, and la to atand for all time holding open
tho doors to a growing trade with the Southwest.
