For Third Time.
San Francisco, June 24. On the
afternoon, of July 1st the mem-!
bers of St. Ignatius' College will,
for the third time since a branch
of the Jesuit order was established in
this city, break ground for a new
edifice. The first church here to
bear the name ot St. Ignatius was
begun in I8f5 and was located where
the ruins of the Emporium now stand,
Father Mataschi was in charge of
the exercises at that time.
Twenty-five years later Father
Varsi presided at the function which
marked the beginning of the great
St. Ignatius' Cathedral, at the cor
ner of Van Ness avenue and Hayes
street, which was destroyed by the
The new building, which will' con
sist of a church edifice, with quarters
for the Jesuit college attached, after
the plan of the burned cathedral, is
,j to be located at the corner of Shrader
and Grove streets. The exe-cises
will be conducted by Rev. John Erie
den, who will consecrate the work of
turning the first shovelful of earth.
The almnni of the Jesuit College
will meet at 1918 Eddy street on June

Washington, June 23. On being
asked concerning the action of Judge
McPherson at Kansas City Friday,
in his decision against the Armour,
Swift, Morris and Cudahy packing
companies, the Uurlington Railroad
and the individual defendants, Tag
gart and Thomas, the Attorney
"The conspiracy was for obtaining
rebates on a large scale, making dis
criminations to shippers highly in
jurious to the public welfare. The
method adopted in concealing the
true nature of the transaction show
ed clearly that the defendants will
fully, knowingly and deliberately
sought to defy the law and was a
gross contempt of its prohibition.
After giving it careful consideration
I concluded thai the extent of the
discriminations practiced showed
that it was a case wliere the sentence
of imprisonment was especially de
sirable, and I directed the District
Attorney to urge on the Court, in
case ,of their conviction, the desira
bility of such a sentence.
"I regard the outcome of this case
as of the first importance. The sen
tence of imprisonment imposed for
the first time on persons guilty of
rebating will, in my judgment," have
the most potent effect in checking
the widespread practice of unlawful
Attorney-General Moody has al
ways been of the opinion that if a
person guilty of rebating could be
imprisoned for it, the practice would
soon be broken. As, however, the
Elkins law contained no provision for
such a sentence, it became necessarj
for Moody, in order to put it into
effect, in this case, to find some other
means for doing so. On an examina
tion of the authorities Moody discov
ered that under the authority of the
Supreme Court of the Uuited States in
the case of Cune vs. the United States
a conspiracy to commit crime against
the United States is self-punishable
by fine, and the defendant might also
bo punished by imprisonment. He
directed the United Stales Attorney
in each district that in the event of
obtaining a conviction on a charge of
conspiracy of this kind, "you are
directed to present to the Court the
desirability of inllcting the penalty of
imprisonment, to the end that unlaw
ful practices, which have received
almost universal condemnation, may
be discouraged and prevented, as far
as existing laws will accomplish that

vacant room cf the hotel.
The room in which the body was
found was one used for the storage of
rubbish. At 8:1" P. M. her daughter
Lizzie was passing along tho con idor
and for some unaccountable reason
she entered the room. She says that
she had no errand there and does not
know why she went in, but on open'
ing the door she saw what appeared
to be a body under a pile of waste in
one corner. She called for assistance
and on examination the body was
found to be that of her mother. She
had been gagged by a handkerchief
thrust Into her mouth and then
strangled, as finger marks on the
neck showed plainly, Iu addiliou she
had been beaten upon the head and
her face was covered with blood from

his room to the waOerootn were
marks as if a heavy body had been
dragged along the floor.
Jones was at once arrested on sus
picion. He loudly protested his inno
cence, said he had been work ing with
a man named Johansen until 3 o'clock,
when they went tor a drink, and re
turning had worked until nearly 5
o'clock. The man Johansen was lo
cated, and said he had not seen Jones
after 11 o'clock in the forenoon.
Harry Capplund, a friend of Jones,
and who is said to have been in com
pany with Mrs. Hrandrup about 11
o'clock, was placed under arrest also,
and both he and Jones are now de
tained in jail pending the result of
the Coroner's inquest, which has
been postponed until Wednesday.

appendicitis at her residence, 11200
