SO NEW TRIAL FOR MITCHELL
Court Bales Agaimt Oregon Senator on
Everj Point Eaisei
FIXING SENTENCE IS AGAIN POSTPONED
Judge DeHaven Allow Attorney
Week to Prepare a Bill of F.l
centlon and Writ of
PORTLAND. Ore., July 15.-Th motion
for a new trial of the case of United
States Senator John H. Mitchell was over
ruled by Judge DeHaven In the United
States court this afternoon and the at
torneys for the defense asked for a week
In which to file a bill of exceptions and a
writ of error. Senator Mitchell was not
present In court. Judge DeHaven an
nounced that he had been too busy to
prepare a written reply to the motion and
gave a verbal decision.
The motion for arrest of judgment was
th first point takJb up. Judge DeHaven
announced that h?''hiid carefully consid
ered the opinion of the lata Judge Bel
linger, .jand while he . believed that the
court had jurisdiction to set aside the
opinion In relation to tne pre a for abate
ment he did not feel Justified in taking
such action and therefore overruled the
motion to arrest Judgment. Jue De
Haven held that he. did not consider him
self In error In giving his Instructions to
th jury nor In the admission of legal
In regard to the sixth count In the In
dictment concerning which It was con
ceded by the government that no evidence
had been submitted to Justify th Jury
In returning a verdict of guilty, the court
referred to a precedent which sustained
the Jury. As to the claim of the -defense
that District Attorney Honey s explanation
that an Indictment could have been re
turned for subornation of perjury had
prejudiced Mitchell'a case with the jury,
'Judge DeHaven held that his instructions
to the Jury to take no cognizance of th
tatement had been sufficient. Motions for
a new trial were overruled on every point.
Apparently Judge DeHaven was on th
point of pronouncing sentence on the de
fendant when ex-Senator Thurston, for th
defense, requested time; in which to pre
pare a bill of exceptions and writ of error.
This, h assured the court, he would have
ready for submission to the district at
torury early next week.

LOUISVILLE-. Ky.. July 15.-A large
array of ' witnesses, chiefly grain shippers

Frank N. Hartwell, a member of a firm

business In the southeastern territory
against the Louisville dealers.'
"Don't you often buy grain out of the
elevator in 8t Louis and insist on an ex

Stone of the Louisville A Nashville.
"Yes, sir, regular customers are allowed
this privilege," replied Mr. Powell.
"It does not matter in whose nam the

ST. PETERSBURG, July 15. M.
Witt had another audience with Em
peror Nicholas today. Investigation in re
liable quarters enables the Associated Press
to positively announce that the reports
current here last night that M. Wltte might
not go to Washington wer Incorrect. M.
Witte'a Instructions, It can also be stated
authoritatively, name him as first plenipo
tentiary and clothe him with plenary pow
ers. The Instructions ar couched in gen
Attitude of Hossla Defined.
The Bviet, which sometimes Interprets th
views of the military party. Indignantly re
ject the interpretation put on M. Witte'a
appointment abroad, namely, that it Is
equivalent to th acceptance of any peace
terms Japan may choose to offer except
leveling the fortifications Of Vladivostok.
The paper calls attention to Emperor
Nicholas' marginal notes on varloua ad
dresses expressing his determination to con
tinue the war, and especially refers to his
telegram to Lieutenant General Llnevltch,
June 14, which the commander-in-chief read
to the army and which has Just been pub
lished here, in which the emperor pledged
himself to do everything possible to lighten
the heavy task of the army and expressed
confluence that all obstacles would finally
be overcome and that the war would end
happlli for the Russian army, as proof that
the emperor has no intention to make
peace at any price. As further evidence
th Svlet draws attention to th unusual
note attached to the official announcement
of M. Wltte's appointment. Being Intimately
acquainted with the situation, M. Wltte un
doubtedly will be equal to the high and im
portant mission with which the emperor
has graciously charged him and know hour
to protect the Interests of Russia.
The Slovo thinks that the desire of the
powers, especially of Great Britain, in view
of Emperor William's attitude toward
France to see Russia rehabilitated In order
to preserve the balance of power In Europe
should become a strong diplomatic weapon
In the hands of th Russian plenipoten
tiaries for the restoration practically of the
status quo ante-bellum.
The Bourse Qaaette says that Inasmuch as
Japan appreciates M. Wltte's desire for
peace the ground at the outset Is cleared
bt distrust and suspicion. At the samo
time th paper adds, Japan will find that
while M. Wltte will be reasonable he wilt
mak no disgraceful or humiliating con
cessions. The Bourse Gasette considers It
likely that th negotiations will result not

China's Possible Role,
China's possible role in the Russo-Japanese
negotiations Is attracting more atten
tion. China's notification that It would de
cline, unless assent was previously given to
it to send a representative to the peace
conference, to consider the Washington
treaty binding If lu provisions affecting
Chinese territory were regarded as preju
dicial, was sent to all the powers In the
form of a circular note. Russia, according
to the Foreign office, sent no reply to
Peking, but It may be stated that some pa
pers which have occasionally Inspiration,
like Prince Outktomskyin Vledomostl, look
with complaisance If hot satisfaction upon
the prospect that China may try to havu
a voice In the terms of peace. Their argu
ment Is that any action on China's part
will necessarily be in the direction of re
stricting Japan's war spirit and that tho
other powers, possibly the United States,
In support of the principles of the Chlrse
territorial integrity, will be compelled to
a greater or less extent to support the Chi
