J- ' ILLEGAL INDICTMENT IS CLAIMED District ntiorney Hsney Contends the Document Ii Valid Court Takes Matter Under Consideration. Portland, Juno 13. Under flrn be fore Judge Do Haven yesterday morn ing wan tho Indictment accusing John 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 teries, was Judge Do Haven, tho man 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 quent verdict of guilty or not guilty. Spectators crowded tho courtroom to hear tho attorneys for the defense, Jtidgu A.S. Ihrnnctt, of Tho Dalles, arid ex-Senator John M. Thurston, of Ne braska, attempt to riddle the indict ment which accuses tholr client, and to listen to Mr. Honey's defensa of the document. The alleged crlrno for which the gov eminent Is endeavoring to placo Hcnnt or Mitchell on trial consists In accept ing a feo from Frederick A. Krlbs for expediting claims before tho general land olllco while a United Statcn ronat or. This is contrary to tho Federal 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 charged. At tho conclusion of tho arguments, Judge Do Haven took tho matter under consideration, stating that lie did not know Just how loig it would require for him to arrive at a conclusion, but that he would consider both the writ' ton arguments interposed with tho do murrer and the oral statements made In court, handing down his decision at his earliest opportunity. Tho court wan then adjourned until this morning at 10 o'clock. RIVAL TO BEEF COMBINE. Farmers of Illinois Ready to Duild Dig Packing Houie. 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 commanders. Generals Eager to Fight. St. Petersburg, Juno 13. Russia's generals in command of tho forces nt tho front aro violently opposed to an cndllig of tho war. General I.lnlevitch, in supremo command, last night wired 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 tions with Japan for n termination of hostilities, ho called n council of war of all hla generals. Philadelphia Mint Closes. Philadelphia, Juno 13, More than 200 employes of tho United States tnlnt wero today suspemlod indefinitely. Tho coining dopartiuont and the melt lug room wero olsoed down becauso ot a lack of sllvor bullion. Tho order clos ing theso departments camo from Washington. 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 California. "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 beit." 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 kept unknown. "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 worn. ; GREAT THEBES RAILROAD BRIDGE. fti f" V 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. AT ELLI8 I8LAND. Orotcxiue Immigrant and Chans:) Mud by Year' Uealdence. mils Island that gateway to New York through which this year will enter about a million refugees from tho Ignorance, despotism, poverty and hopelessness of tho old world in one of the most Interesting places In tho metropolis. There the student of hu manity Is never In want of an en grossing subject. There he may see "In the raw" tho peasantry of sunny Italy, of Ice-hound Finland, of Idthu anla, of Poland, of all the many land of Kurope and western Asia tie Jew, tho Catholic, the Mohammedan, the Protestant, the adherent of the Greek Church each attired in tho grotesque and semi-barbaric garb of his natlvo Tillage and speaking a rudo dialect which the educated from even his own land can scarcely comprehend. Heavy, stolid faces product of cen turies of toll, poverty nnd Ignorance confront him, but he will detect llttlo of vlclousness. These ox-llkc men and women nro not criminals, Only rare- CONTUABT AT 1XL1S ISLAND. ly among the tens of thousands of in comers is there ono lacking tho simple virtues of tho peasant, and tho excep tion may bo detected as easily as may a wolf in a crowded sheepfold. Of tho 812,000 men, women and chil dren whom tlio ships brought to Ellis Island last year less than one lu a hundred wero rejected, and only tho smallest sprlukling becauso of n crimi nal record. Thoso who were sent back wero refused admission becauso they wero In HI health, wero likely to become paupors or wero contract la borers. Tho motnmorphosls which a year's residence In the United States causes In theso uncouth Immigrants Is some thing astonishing, particularly if the newcomer Is n woman nnd has spent tho year In the metropolis. When tho Immigrant lands nt Hills Island ho or she Is nn outlandlsh-looklug ob ject, outlandish ns was ever no stnge clown. Invariably ho has a bundle, nnd Ida wife has n buudlo a bundle done up In anything from tho slzo of n pocket handkerchief to a largo tn blecloth. If tho bundle- Is n small ono It Is carried lu tho hand or slung across n stick over tho ahonlder; If It Is n largo buudlo tho woman ties It across Uer back, leaving her hand free to balnuce, perhaps, n small paper trunk on her head with one hand, and with tho other to drag n load of precious and nrchnlc pots nnd pans to which sho has clung like grim death since tho eventful day when she left her hovel far behind. Tho children, or such of them ns nro not babes at the breast, follow In line, each bearing his own llttlo momento of old world house keeping a tea kettle, a pot, n wooden spoon. They see nothing to bo ashamed of in all this on tho contrary, they nro Inordinately proud of this public pa rndo of their worldly possessions, nnd It is hard for them to understand the shniuo nnd mortification which their gauchorlo causes their Wing and eager friends who come to welcomo them. If tho Americanized friend Is n woman, especially If she be a young woman, one may depend upon it that her unsophisticated countrywoman has got to be amazingly "prinked up" be fore they set off together. Not infre quently a "lady friend" gifted with forethought will have brought with her un entire new wardrobe all a la mode for the newcomer, and it In a common occurrence to see one of them ambitious kinswomen literally forcing her dazed peasant friend to lay nslde her picturesque klrtle and bodice, her gay headdress, her long pendant ear ring beloTcd treasures and don In their stead, In such privacy a can be secured in the door ways of tho long exit corridors, cheap and tawdry black skirts and a white shirt waist and a picture hat laden with flowers and feathers. In a few months the peasant girl becomes habituated to wearing cor set about her strong young waist, and sbo blushes to think of the night she must have been when she landed, with a bundle on her bncic, and when irtie In turn goes to meet some ono of her friends it Is difficult to realize how radical has been the transformation. A J)Ucourna;lnc- Outlook. Tho weekly New York paper which chronicled gay doings not only In that frivolous metropolis but In England and other foreign ports as well, afford ed Mrs. Emmons keen enjoyment, and gave her many an excuso for righteous wrath. This fact bad been fully ap preciated by her son, who sent her a year's subscription. "Listen to this, MJe Emmons," sh commanded one night, the paper trem bling In her bands. "It's tho account of a grand reception In London, and this Is what It says: The Honorable Winifred Cowles was In black velvet, studded with Jewels, tho low-cut bodice nnd slecvo straps being en crusted with sparkling gems. The Honorable Prances Ilathbone wore deep blno velvet with garnitures of rich lace. "Now you mark what I say," nald Mrs. Emmons. "If our young fellows that go over to England get to wearing such clothes as this paper describes, what's going to become of our coun try? A fellow that'll submit himself to bo rigged up In any such way aa that Isn't likely to know how to bandto a gun In tlrao o' war or a hoe In time o' peace!" He Wasn't a Legislator. A traveling man who "makes" Kan sas City frequently wns dining lu tho cafe of ono of tho large hotels when ho thought he'd play a trick on hla waiter. "Sea that man nt tho next table, Georgo?" ho said. Tho waiter nodded assent "That's Dr. Alouzo Tubhs. tho Missouri Legis lator, who Is trying to stop all tipping." Tho waiter grew interested nt onco. "Well, nln't ilat too bad," ho said. "Ah'a been waltin' on him, too. "Well, you won't got nny tip there," said tho trav ellng man. "Ah suttlugly treated him right," replied tho waiter. "A fow minutes later the man nt tho other table loft nnd tho waiter return ed to tho traveling man. "Well." said tho drummer, "what did I tell youT" " 'Xcuso me, sah, hut nh thinks you tole mo cr fabrication," said the waiter, grinning. "Dat man nln't a loglslatah ho's n gentleman." Tho man had given him a quarter. Wants to Get Even. Church If a man Is going to b struck by an automobllo, what's the dtfforenco whether the machlno is go ing ten miles an hour or fifty? Gotham A good deal of difference. How la a man who Is knocked down going to tell a chauffeur what he thinks of him If ho.'s going at fifty miles an hour? YonUers Statesman.
