Tells ol Granting United Rail
reads Overhead Franchise,
Defense In Sun Francisco Graft Case
Gets Admission Franchise Would
Have Passed Anyway.
Ban Franclmsco, Sept. 20. Twice
jesletday during the Tirey L. Ford
trial, wherein the chief coansel for tho
United Railroads is charged with brib
ery of public officials, it was affirmed
that confessed bribe-takers, members of
the boaid of supervisors, would have
voted to grant tho United railroads n
franchise for an overhead trolley sys
tem without tho usoof tho money which
Is alleged to Iiavo been so lavishly dis
tributed. James L. Gallagher, ex
chairman of the board of supervisors,
explicitly declared his belief that the
franchise could have been secured with
out any attempt to Influence the opln
I Ions of the member!). Supervisors
Samuel Davlr, the only other witness
of the day, reiterated this assurance on
his own account.
Gallagher occupied tho stand during
four hours of Uio session, and every
scrap of testimony he gave wns thresh
ed out by tho attorneys for either aide.
To Davis scarcely an hour was devoted.
It doveloped that Gallagher had ar
ranged immunity for himself and tho
other members of the board In tho
course of two or three Interviews with
Jtadolph Spreckels.
Gallagher admitted having had sever
al conferences with Foid. At one
timo he carried a noto from W. M. Ab
bott, ono of tho United Railroads' at
torneys, to Abraham Rnef. Afterward
he took the note to Ford, who permitted
him to see tint It contained a hint that
an attempt was being made to trap the
Judge Lawlor U considering what
form of punishment ho will administer
to the people connected with the de
fense of Ford, who were" caught by De
tect! vo Burns In the act of settings trap
to spirit away former supervisor Thom
as F. Lonergan, chief witness apainst
the defendant. The offense of seeking
to take a witness out of tho Jurisdiction
of the court Is clearly provided for in
the code, and somo punishment will bo
meted out to serve as a warning against
such tactics.
Anything to Secure Immunity Money
Advanced to Dummies.
Boise, Sept. 20. Tho first sensation
in the trial of United States Senator
William E. Borah came late yesterday,
when Albert Klanop Nugent, the sec
ond witness produced by the govern
ment, admitted on croes examination
that he committed perury in taking
out a timber claim, admitted that ho
had been promised absolute Immunity
by an officer of tho Federal government
for testifying, admitted that at the re
quest of tho Federal officer he had
Bworn to a complaint against a man
whom he did not know, and last pro
claimed that he believed it to bo a part
of his bargain for Immunity that he
should swear to any comlalnt against
any person, regardless of any know
ledge that ho might have as to the per
conn's guilt. When the name oi the
Federal officer who induced hltn to
sign the comlalnt was asked by Borah's
counsel, the witness swore positively
that be could not remember it.
The day was given over to tho Intro
duction of a mass of papers on file In
tho land effico at Boise relative to 31
alleged fraudulent claims, and to the
evidence of two men who said they re
ceived money from John It. Wells,
with which to prove up on their timber
land claims. Wells Is one of the men
indicted with Borah. Counsel for the
latter did not object to this testimony,
on the understanding that tho trans
action In question would ultimately be
connected in some way with tho sen
ator on trial.
Another Alaska Strike.
Tacorna, Sept. 20. Private advices
from an authentic source report a rich
gold discovory on Valde creek, in the
Suahltna valley, 76 miles from Copper
Center, which Is on the Valdez-Fair-banks
trail, 300 miles from Vajdez.
Fetor Monaban, the discoverer, took
out $30,000 two years ago and during
the past summer, with machinery to
work the bench above tho creek, took
out ono nugget valued at $040 and sev
eral running from $200 to $300. It is
predicted the stampede will result In a
mining town equal to Fairbanks.
Snow Storm Over Lakes.
Cleveland, O., Sept. 20. A terrific

tho lower lake region for more than 21
hours. So far as known no da ma go to
nMnnlnir has occurred. With the
ainrm camo a heavy drop In tho tern-1
perature and this morning there have

President Roosevslt to Approve
Washington, Sept. 27. President
Roosevelt announced this afternoon
that he had decided tc apptovo the Ok
lahoma constitution, which menus that
all doubt regarding the addition of an-
othor stnt to tho national ting Is re
moved; that two nioio Democratic sen
ators will soon tako seats In tho upper
branch of congress; that four Demo
crats and one Republican will bo added
to tho rolls of tho houso and that seven
bran now votes will bo added to tho
Democratic column, In all probability,
In tho next electoral college.
Announcement that Oklahoma's con
stitution is to receive formal cxecutlvo
approval comes as a surprise to many
of those moat directly Interested, for
the tip had gone out that tho constitu
tion would bo rejected.
Undoubtedly It would linve been re
jected, too, had tho president felt freo,
after consultation with his legal advis
ers, to act upon tho merits of tho document-as
they appeal to him, or had tho
convention's work not been so over
whelmingly ratified by tho voters of
Oklahoma and Indian Territory.
It was stated at tho White House
that tho tremendous majority for tho
constitution at the recent election was
tho impelling force. Furthermore, It
was pointed out that tho executive
Judgment was, generally speaking, con
dued to tho question of whether tho
provisions of the enabling net liad been
observed. Tho final decision followed
n contercncc witu Attorney ucnerai
Bonaparte this noon. Approval, as ap
plied to tho president's action In con
nection with tho constitution, Is tech
nical and does not express tho execu
tive s real pee, t Ion. Ho does not ap
prove of tho constitution at all, but
simply signs his name In response to
tho will of tho people who must the
under It, for the reasons above stated.
Mr. Roosevelt's actual opinion of tho
constitution, according to those who
are In his confidence, would hardly be
fit for publication.
Thirteen Dummy Entrymen Tell of
Sale oT Claims.
Boise, Sept. 27. After having spent
all of the previous day in bringing out
the testimony of 13 persons who ad
mitted they hsd taken claims to timber
land for the express purpose of selling
them to members of an alleged land
grabbing conspiracy, the government
attornoys In the trial of United States
Senator Borah yesterday turned the
lino of evldenco into new channels,
which they say will tend to affect the
defendant senator. Tho testimony ad
duced np to until now has been con
fined to the activities of John I. Wells
and Louis M. Pritchard, two of tho
men under Indictment. Nono of the
"dummy" entrymen examined was
cross examined and the testimony that
they received from Wells the money
with which to provo their claims and
from Pritchard tho $250 bonus for sur
rendering their titles went uncontrc
verted. Just prior to adjournment the prose
cuting attorneys Identified the signa
tures of ex-Governor Frsnk Steunen
berg and William Sweet to a document
said to havo been a contract. It( is al
leged that Stennenberg and Sweet
Jointly furnished the monoy with
which the first alleged faudulent trans
actions were carried on.
Tho government has divided its caso
into three sections. The first deals
with the claims which were turned
over to Albert K. Palmer, of Spokano,
who is said to have acted as "dummy"
trustee for the Barber Lumber com
pany. All the testimony bearing on
these claims, it is alleged, was handled
through Horace S. Rand, of Burling
ton, Iowa. The third and last set wero
handled by George 6. Long, who, tho
government promises, will oventually
take the stand as the moat important
witness for tho prosecution.
Chemicals Produco Life.
Paris, Sept. 27. Remarkable experi
ments in the chemical development of
life havo been effected by Professor
De Lage, of tho Corbonno. Profoesor
Do Lage placed the unfertilized eggs of
the sen uraliln and the'star fish in sea
water, adding a solution of sugar with
a few drops of ammonia and tannin.
In about an hour, segmentation began,
and the eggs produced larvae. Tho
great majority of these larvae soon
died, but constant care has brought four
of tho urchins and two of the star fish
through tho larvao stage.

Walla Walla Valley trolley lino via

affairs has heretofore been unknown In
this city, and of cocrse tho shippers
appreolato It.
The apple crop la a pool one and top
notch price havo already Deen ottered
and accepted. The applo trees have
been well sprayed this year and the
good derived thereby Is already showing
Itself by tho absence of scale. There
will be over 100 car loads of apples
from this point. Hay shipments are
becoming general, tho ranchers con
signing their hay to points on Fugel
sound whero prices are good.
Harvesting has begun on the third

Money In Clover Ssed.
Albany Local dealers are building
up a lucrntlvo business In handling tho
clover seed produced by the growers
of this section. Carter A Robton, of
this city, have made a specialty In sup
plying alsyko and red clover seed to ono
of the largeet seed concerns In Wlscon
sin. Should it be possible to obtain
tho cars, a total ol 240.000 pounds will
have been sent to Milwaukee by the
end of this week. Tho local Htm reeks
to purchase sulllclent revd to mak out
a shipment of seven carloads with a
total valuation of about $25,000. This
opens up a new market for tho clover
seed raised In this section and will
havo a tendency to strengthen the local
market and bring the top price to the
valley growers. It Is said that tho
supply Is not equal to tho demand and
tint a lucrative business awaits grow
ers who will specialise in tho growing
of clover for seed purposes.
Freighting at Klamath.
Klamath Falls An averago of ISO,-
000 pounds of freight every five days Is
being hauled into Klamath Falls by
the J. M. Mclntyre Transportation
company. Other freighters ate curry
ing smaller amounts. Tito merchants
are stocking up for winter trade, as the
freight rates are higher during tho bad

is keeping 13 teams on tho road, each
making a round trip every five days.
After October 1 the freight will bo un

thero will be any change in tho present
