CHARGE OF MURDER
An indictment charging Paul Mnsa.
who was arrested at the Stanley-Smith
lumber carnp near this citv, with the
murder of Julius Kubn, the east side
saloon Tan, who was shot and killed
in his saloon on William avenue on
the night of February 17, was filed in
the cricuit court by District Attorney
Manning last week. The instrument
charges murder in the first degree.
Doth the police authorities and the
district attorney admit that they have
little confidence In their ability to
convict the young Uermau with the
evidence theyZhave, but lu view of
what they have they propose to make
him go before the court anyhow. Ibe
attorneys for the accused prisoner feel
confident that they wlil clear their
man without the necessity of going
Into any extensive defense. The still
maintain that they will produce evi
dence that will reveal startling facts
a-i to the Identity of the guilty par
It was at first planned by the police
to have Mnsa arraniged in the lower
court, but because of the small amount
of eivdenoe tbey possessed against
him, it was finally decided that it
would be better to file a direct indict
ment in the higher tribunal to avoid
exposing their testimony to the de
fense before the final trial.
"1 must admit.' said Captain of
Detectives tirulu. "that our elvdence
against Musa is rather weak and un
satisfactory. . If he is guilty we want
to hang him. ' If he is innocent we
want to turn bim loose. 1 don't be
lieve the evidence we have is enough
to convict him beyond the shadow of
a doubt," , ,
rheldutectires have endeavored to
trace Mnsa's movements from the time
lie is alleged to have purchased the re
volver a id cartrlgna at the Northwest
gun store, hut they have been unable
to do so. I he ouly evidence upon
which the olllcers are going into court
consists of the atlidavit of Joe Miluer,
the ludentlllcation or Musa by the pro-
pr etor or the gun store, the fact that
Musa knew Kuhn had a large sum of
money in the saloon and that he quit
ins joii suddenly after learning ttjl
The prisoner's attorneys say that
will prove positively that Musa was
not in the vioinity of the saloon at
the time the murder was committed.

Fruit LoMtes by Front In Malm.
The rnnt buds that are tstill alive
have made themselves so manifest now
that an exact estimate can lie made of
the damage resulting from the recent
oold weather. It Is gratifying to
know that there Is not a total loss of
the fruit crop, and tho estimates made
by the fruit men in the last few days
aie that theie Is something left of
every variety 1 1 fruit grown on tb
river, except ti,o apprioot crop, which
is a total loss, and that the loss is less
comparatively on the lower river than
in Lewlstou and Clarkson. being
greater here because of the larger pro
portion or tender early varieties
E. A. White, ot the firm of White
Bros. & Crum, has just made a oareful
comparison of the results on the river

gives out th extent ot damage as fol
lows to a Lewiston Teller reporter:
Ion per cent of the peaobes, 20 per
cent of thefpears and 25 per cent of
the cherries aie still alive. All the
apricots as far as known . aie killed
more is no loss at all on the prunes

light crop last year, which gave the
trees extra vigor. Last Oregon.
Fruit Not Hurt Much.
Investigations this week show thst
pears are not much hurt by the cold
snap, but peaches and early cherries
nre badly killed. The half dormaut
buds may yet make a partial crop, but
the prospect is that it will be short
this year. Fruit men are now begiu
uiug to think that the oold snap was
not much damage after all. It is
thought that it killed many of the San
Jose scale and while It may have kill.
