JURORS SWOHN IN.
Niw Trial Ordered In San Fran
clsce Graft Case.
APPELLATE COURT FINIS ERRORS
Louis Glass, Convicted Telephone Of
ficlal, Must Be Tried Again
i on Bribery Charge.
San Francisco, April 16. By a deci
sion of the District Court of Appeals,
handed doom today, the conviction of
Louis Glass, cx-vlco presldont and gen
eral manager of tho Pacific States Tel-
ephono company, found guilty of having
offered a bribe to Supervisor Thomas
F. Lonergan to influence his voto on
the granting of a franchise to the Home
Tel ephono company, is reversed and a
new trial ordered.
The reversal is based upon two
points: First, tho admission into evi
dence of matters pertaining to certain
transactions in relation to tho Home
Telephone company franchise at Oak
land, held by the appellate judge to be
irrelevant to the case on trial; and sec
ond, that Judge William P. Lawlor re
fused to instruct tho jury as requested
by the defense, not to allow the refusal
of E. J. Zimmer, an official of the Pa
cific States Telephone company, to tes
tify to Influence their minds, nor to
view his refusal as an indication that
be was withholding evidenco which
might incrlmlnato tho dnfense.
The decision of the appellate justices
sustains the indictment under which
Glass was tried, though after an ex
haustive discussion of its text, they
declare it to be "not a model," while
sufficient for its purpose.
The verdict against Glass was
brought en August 30, 1907, and on
September 6, 1905, ho was sentenced
by Judge Lawlor to serve five years in
the state penitentiary. The health of
the prisoner was very poor, and he was
liberated on ball on that account, pend
ing the result of bis appeal. The first
case against Glass resulted in a mis
trial, and his conviction followed tho
aeeead presentation of the evidence.

The fighting occurred when the jefe

sponding to a mayor, attempted to stop
a religious procession beaded by the

such parades. A thousand parishioners
followed the priest, wishing to witness
the annual burning of Judas, and the
mob, becoming enraged, stoned and
later burned the bouse of the jefe.

Oregon Already Owns Sand Island,
Says Governor Benson.

Washington, has written Governor Ben
son, of this state, in regard to the
boundary question long pending be
tween tho two states. It Is understood
the Washington authorities favor an
arbitration commission to consider the
Governor Benson has acknowledged
the receipt of the communication from
the governor of Washington and bos
taken the matter under advisement.
While ho will say nothing as to the
merits of the matter, it Is gathered
from other sources that the Oregon au
thorities may not bo anxious to hand
the matter over to a commission, since
the Supreme court of the United States
baa already rendered a decision in favor
of Oregon's contention in tho matter.
The principal! ground for litigation
is Sand Island at the mouth of tho Co
lumbia. Tho Washington people are
now making on effort to have the caso
reopened by the United States Supreme

a more extensive scale than ever bo-
fore. Besides an excellent literary and
musical program, a big horse show will
form a part of tho festivities. This
was last year an Important part of the

ready owned in tho county, and places
them at about 18,000, or more than
one-seventh of tho entire number in

very fine this year, and the outlook
