LOTAN AND SEID BACK
BOTH FOUND GUILTY
The Jury Agreed at Midnight, The
Collector Very Much Surprised,

Ex-Collector James Lotau and 8eid
Iltick, the Chinese merchant prince,
who have been on trial In the U. S.
court durlug the past week, for con
splracy to smuggle Chinese, were
found guil'y by the jury last night.
The verdict was unexpected. The de
fense asked until Tuesday morning to
file exceptions, and will doubtless
move for a new trial. Tbe court
granted tbe request.
Tbe jury reached a verdict about
11:30 and anuounoed to the bains' that
they were ready to report. Judge Bel
linger was immediately sent for at his
borne In Holladay's addition. Mean
while tbe attorneys In the case had
been roused from their hotels and
slowlv assembled. Mr. Lotan was
amtiflg the earlier arrivals, and chatted
for a while In the distrlet attorney's
office with some ot the attorneys. He
way visibly nervous, but appeared
very confident of an acquittal, remark
ing that a verdict of guilty could
hardly have been arrived at en prompt-
When Judge Brllenger arrived, and
the jury filed into the courtroom,
everybody neotssary was present hut
Beid Hack. ; He was being sought for
high aud low, but he appeared to have
gotten so far atvay I hat forty deputies
could not utiearl h him.
At last (.lie door opened. "There he
le," said Attorney Fulton. The judge
took his seat and the jury was polled.
Tbe court axked tbe jury if it had
agreed upon a verdict. The foreman
nodded and handed the typewritten
verdict to the court, who glauced at it
aud banded it to the clerk, aho read
"We, the jury iu the cose, And the
defendants, Junius Lotan and Beid
Back, guilty as charged In the indict
ment." Lotan sat perfectly still during the
reading of the verdict. Afterward he
said to Attoruey Fulton that it was
the greatest surprise of bis life

Eveniug Telegram eays: W. J. Ingalle,
cue of Clatsop's large realty-holders,
gives an inside version of the hilch oc
curring between Mr. Hammond and
the subsidy couimitlee at Astoria,
which has resulted in a stoppage of
negotiations ou the building of tbe
Astoria & Uoblc roud, for tbe time be
ing. Mr. Hammond bos Insisted on ab
stracts of tbe subsidy deeds being
made aud submitted to him. The
committee did not like' this and held
back until told by Mr. Hammond that
unless the abstracts were made, not a
aud would be turned on the road so far
as be was conoefired.- As tbe Bonner
people bad withdrawn from the field
and the Hammond proposition was
their last chance, the subsidy men
Dien gave in aud tbe abstracts were
made. A meeting was arranged at
which .the committee was to meet Mr.
Hammond and tbe deeds be presented.
All weut well at tbe meeting until
some flaw came up which interested
Mr. C. H. Page. Au argument ensued
ended by Mr. Page declaring himself
as "not oaring whether the road went
through or not. He had gotten In on
the former boom and was pretty com
fortable." To this Mr. Hammond replied:
"Well, Mr. Page, if those are your
sentiments, let me iuform you that I
have got lu ou several deals before
now aud am feeling pretty comforta
ble myself. Your road is a side Issue
anyhow," and taking his hat Mr.
Hammoud left the room, slnoe when
the 'committee buve seen him no
The AsUrla people, however, are

It has been discovered that tbe

Moore aud Thomas Cooper, the recent

Mr. Moore is but one of several re

Is that thousands of dollars of short

Oregon Mills May Compete. .
Representative Hermann has ob
tained valuable concessions from tbe
navy department in favor of Pacific
coast blauket manufacturers. Hereto
fore all contracta for blankets (pur
chased for use on our naval vessels ou
tbe Pacific coast, and at the U. S.
navy yards at Marc island and those
to be used ou the new war vessel, the
Oregon, all provided a first class de
livery In New York, which practically
gave a monopuly to Eastern woolen
mills. Now Mr. Hermann makes pro
tests lu the name of the Oregon woolen
mills against this distinction, and has
Insisted that contracts should be let ou
teims permitting delivery at San
Francisco, which would favor the Pa
cific coaBt mills at least to the cost of
transportation, wiiicb is quite an Item.
At tbe next letting the department
will change tbe rule If Pacific coast
mills desire to bid. The rule formerly
required provisions and stores for Pa
cific naval uses to be delivered In New
York, but this changed a few years
Signal Triumphs Won.
.Two signal triumphs have beeu

award aud diploma at the World' Co

secured tbe highest award and tiold
medal at the California Midwinter
fair of 1SU4. At both fairr it surpassed
all competitors in every respect. Tbe
award, iu each Instance, was for the
strongest leavening power, perfect pur

sustained by the unanimous vote of
the Judges. The victory at Chicago
establishes the supremacy of Dr.
Price's as "tbe foremost Baking Pow

THE FIRST PRACTICAL' STEP
TREATY OF MUTUAL BEflFIT
AU Differences Between Them to Be
Settled by Arbitration and
the. Interest of One
That of All.
WASHINGTON, May 2o.-NeW
treaties of fur reaching importance
have recently been nnide between Nic
aragua and Honduras, official copies' of
whicli have just been received at
Washington. They are tbe first prac
tical steps toward the formation of a
Central American nation out of the
several small republics of Nicaragua,
Honduras, Guatemala, Salvador and
Costa Rica. Tbe first treaty forms a
defensive alliance iu ease of a foreign
alliance against common enemies;' It
obliterates commercial frontiers, so
that foreign goods once admitted to
one country are free to enter theothers.
An express provision is made against
the possibility of war between the
countries by an article requiring dif
ferences to be adjusted by arbitration
by some government on the American
content. Article No. 63, the one'look
lng to union in a single nation, is as
"The high contracting parties sol
emnly declare that they cannot aud
will uot consider as foreign other Cen
tral Amerioau countries, that they
will labor constantly to maintain
family bonds, the greatest cordiality
in their relations making a common
cause with them in case of war or dif
ficulties witli foreign countries and
mediating in international relations,
"To this end the present tresyWIII
be su!init4ed to their consideration,
inviting tbem to subscribe to It as a
common Central American treaty utt
til the arrival of the day when they
shall ke Incorporated In a single na
tion." Ejecting Settlers.
PENDER, Neb., May 24.-Indlan
Agent Beck has positively commenced
tbe ejectment of settlers occupying the
lands of tbe Flournoy Laud company
on the Winnebago reservation. Three
settlers in the vicinity of Wakefield
were removed yesterday by sixteen
Indian police heavily armed. Captain
Beck has served notice that other set
tlers must go, and will continue the
evictions. It is thought there will be
an attempt to put off tbe cattle ou
Kelly's ranch, If tbe attempt is made
there will surely be bloodshed, for
Kelly lias threatened to shoot the first
redskin that comes inside his pasture
for that purpose. Those who have
been ousted by the police were merely
told to get off, and, when they refused,
were uot molested.
An Air Line. . .
TACOMA, May 25. Tbe project of
building an air-line broad-gauge rail
road between Tacoma and Seattle has
been revived by Henry Bucey, who
will start at once to secure tbe right-of-way
aud land subsidies. He ex
pects then to float bonds. Tbe line
would be thirty miles long, a saving of
twelve miles over the present route.
The grade would be one per cent, and
the cost of building aud equipment
$600,000. The Tacoma & Seattle Air
Line railroad was incorporated five
years ago to build tbe line. The de
pression caused a postponement of the

Was it the Lone Highwayman?
A guard of the Klamath Falls-Aycr
stage line reports that, on one of the
trips siuce the last robbery, he saw a
manorouchlng behind the bushes and
apparently iu tbe act of stopping the
stage. Suddenly the man turned on
his heel and began making his escape,
three shots were fired by the
guard after the flying robber, which
only helped to increase his speed. It
is thought that the reason another at
tempted hold-up was not made was on
account of tho large crowd of passen
