After this tlip state rested , whereupon thu
cfemlants , b > their attorney , M. F. Harrlng-
on , moved the court to Instruct the Jury to
iturn a verdict of not guilty without requlr-
ng any cvldenco on the pirt of the defend-
nts , because no cvldenco wns offered on the
urt of the stnto tending to show the com-
iilsslou ot the crime ot murder In lloyd
ounty , and that no cvldenco was offered to
how that llarrett Scott wns strangled In

o the reputation of the accused being excel-
cut In Holt county

trojs the evidence of Mrs. Scott and proves

nents on the stand were true

SIOUX FALLS , S. D , June 21 ( Special )
Considerable Interest Is centered In the
coming trial of the case of the United States
against the Homcslako Mining company to
recover on a claim of $700,000 for timber
cut on government land and used try the
mining company. The case will be the prin-
clpil ono tried nt the July term ot United
Stiles court here It U estimated that oxer
,100 witnesses from the Black Hills country
will be here to testify In the case , that the
trial will occupy two months and that It will
require an outlaj of $30,000 to cover court
expenses during the trial. That the United
States proposes to prosecute the C1S9 thor
oughly Is evidenced from the fact that Judge
John 13 Cirland of this city has been ap-
pilntt'd special assistant district attornex to
assist District Attorney Miller In handling
the case The Homestake people will set up
as a defense that the timber vxas u ed for
mining , building and fuel , nnd will claim
that they are not liable for pay for the same ,
as there is n United States statute which
allows the use of government timber for
"manufacturing" purposes.

CHICAGO , June 21 Chancellor Muldoon
denied emphatically today that there Is the
least semblinco of truth In the slitement
published that Bishop Dunne of Dalli ? Tex ,
who arrived hero today , had Ineu appointed
coadjutor to Archbishop Feehan. "The re
port , " said the chancellor , "Is simply a
canard manufactured out of whole cloth A
coadjutor Is appointed only for one of txxp
reasons When the falling health of the
aichblshop renders an assistant ncce'-aiy , or
when the dloce e has outgrown his powers ,
in either of which cases , the archbishop would
alwajs bo the first to suggest the appointment
of a coadjutor
"The sole purpose of Bishop Dunne's visit
to Chicago , " the chancellor continued , "is
the acceptance of an Invitation from the
Jesuit college at Blue Island avenue nnd
Twelfth street to preacli next Sundiy , when
this college celebrates Its sllxer anniversary "

Judge Andrews , has fixed the bonds of
Major Stutenroth and City Attorney Gove
of Watertown at $100 for each Indictment
Attorney Gove Is under two Indictments and
lie furnished his own cash bond , although
manj friends came forward and offered to go
his surety There nre three Indictments
against the major , making It neci sary to
put up a $1,500 bond. The business men of
\\atertown , to show that they support the
major In his allowing the Faloons to run , in
slsted on going on his bond Sixty-eight
business men went his surety , making a bond
good for from $230,000 to $500,000. It Is not
thought that the charge of compounding a
crime In allowing the saloons to run In the
city of Watertown will be sufficient to con
vict the mayor and city attorney when the
time comes for trial.
