tire Sol Van Praag was put on trial in
Judge Blodgett's court on a charge of
conspiracy and subordination in connec
tion with naturalization frauds before

an uncle of the two Murray boys who
were concerned in the case, testified
that one of them bad been in the conn
try four years and the other two months.
The eldest bad declared his intention of
going down and taking out papers. Cal
lahan went down as a witness, and the
brother accompanied them. At the
court house they met Van Praag, who.
on learning they were Democrats, told
tho brothers that they would havu to
say they were here five years. He
then took them to the Democratic
headquarters, where papers were
given them and they went back to
Judge Driggs' court. One of the boys
made a mititake, saying he had lieen
here only since 180. Then they seenred
another blank aud went before Judge
Waterman, where the papers were se
enred. Pat and John Murray told snli
stantially the same story. They de
clared Van Praag put them . np to all
the perjury they committed. Pat said
Van Praag cautioned him about answer
ing questions of the jndge and told him
that if he made any mistakes he would
be thrown down stairs. Pat said he
didn't pay for the papers, the expense
having been met by the Democratic
naturalization bureau. . For the de
fense, John Balleutyne, clerk of the
bureau, testified that be remembered
the Murray boys very well and was
positive that Van Praag was net with
them. State Representative Mclneruey
testified that Callahan had a very pour
reputation for veracity.

money from Mrs. Pillow only in liqui

never bad a final settlement with Mrs.
Pillow, who still owed litio large sums
of money. Witness declared timt Mrs.
Pillow and her son-in-law, Mr. Shields
of Birmingham had entered into a con

would kill him if he did not withdraw
certain charges made in the cross bill
filed in the case.
Witness testified that there was noth

warranted the scandal coinpluiued of in
the cross bill. Witness remembered
with absolute certainty what trans

NOT A SALOON WAS OPEN.
Tacnaia, Wh., Oaee Dry for tbe t'lre!
Time la Ite Hist err.
Tacoua. Wash., June 10 Some timt
ago tbe Anti-Sunday Saloon associa
tion, a religious organisation composed
of clergymen and church members, be
gan prosecuting saloons which kept
open Sundsy when a state law said they
should not. Conviction was obtained
against a saloonkeeper a few days ago
and last Sunday for the first time in the
history of the city not a saloon or gamb
ling house was open.
: After the conviction the saloonkeep
ers decided to rnb in the state law and
give tbe people plenty of. The law for
bids any kind of "business beiut done
except that of undertakers, livery
stables and hotels. The Saloonkeepers'
Union sent out a formal notice and not
a restaurant, cigar store or newstand
dared to open. One or two confection
ery and fruit stands, defied the notice
and they are expected to be prosecuted
by the saloonkeepers.
. it is thought the effect of this whole
sale closing will bring about a reeal of
the State law and defeat the Snnday
closing movement. The hotels could
not accommodate the hungry crowdn
used to got meals at restaurants.

upon matters relating to their removal

the early expected visit of a Sioux com

This removal is of great importance to

On June 11 Sir Julian Panacefote
communicates Lord Salisbury's reply to
the last proposal of Mr. Wharton in
which be says: "His lordship states
that the president's refusal to adopt his
suggestion with respect to Russia -, ren
ders the proposed modus Vivendi much

tne urgency of the case, bis lordship is
disposed to authorize me to sign an

not left in doubt, and that your govern

what permanent measures are neces

Under date of June 11 Acting Secre
tary Wharton says be is directed by the
president to say that the government of
the United States, recognizing the fact
that that full and adequate measures
for the protection of seal life should em
brace the whole of Behring Sea and
portions of northern Pacific ocean, will
have no hesitancy in agreeing in con
nection with her majesty s government,
to the appointment of a. joint commis

to; such an agreement to be signed

understanding that the joint edmmis
sion will be appointed withont delay.
On that understanding, therefore, I
shall be prepared to attend at tbe state

rects me to say, in response to yonr
note of this date, that his assent to tbe
proposition for a joint commission, as
expressed in my note of June 9, was

to adjust the remaining points of dif
ference in the general correspondence
relating to arbitration and to agree
upon the definite terms of a submission
and the appointment of a joint commis

glad that an agreement has finally been

era Board of Commissioners la
Session at Chicago.
Chicaoo, June 16. Trouble is likely
to grow out of Chairman Finley's de
cision, by which he authorizes the
Atchison and otber lines to establish
summer "wurist rates from Kansas City
to east ' n points by issuing through
ticketsr way of Chicago at a rate
equal to the sum of the locals by way of
St. Louis. In doing this the chairman
coolly replied to the Alton's threat by
giving it a slap in tbe face.
The Alton urged that the equality
could only be obtained by a reduction
on tbe round trip rate between Kansas
City and Chicago, and that tho fact of
the boycott, the sale of tho through
tickets to eastern points aud return at
reduced rates would place the Alton at
a disadvantage, bnt the chairman saw
fit to brush the argument aside, and he
baa been notified by the Alton people
that as a measure of self -protect ion they
will at once reduce the round trip rate
between Kansas City and Chicago suffi
ciently to put their road on an equal
footing with its competitors. Unless
the other roads decline to avail them
selves of the. authority given them by
Finley a rate war is imminent, for it
cannot be doubted that Finley and the
Alton people are equally determined to
maintain their positions.
