Twelve Indictments Against Senator
Clark's Alleged Agent.
Both Released Under Heavy Bonds-
Fraud Denied by All
Special to The Journal.
Helena, Mont., June 29.— R. M. Cobban,
a prominent real estate man of Mis
soula and Butte, has been indictedby the
United States grand jury on a charge of
subornation of perjury in connection
with timberland entries. There are
twelve indictments against him.
Cban is cnarged with inducing entry
men to make a falee oath respecting their
intentions with timber land filed upon,
the law requiring them to swear that
they are not taking up the land for spec
ulative purposes. The government con
tends that Cobban boug*it many thousands
of acres of timber land from these entry
iUen and turned it over to Senator W.
A. Clark. The hitter says he was an in
nocent purchaser. Cobban was released
upon $10,000 bonds.
John B. Catlin, formerly an official in
the Missoula land office, was also in
dicted. The indictments charge perjury
and subornation of perjury. He was re
leased on $3,000 bonds.
Many more arrests are expected as
there were about seventy-five people in
dicted in connection with the timber
frauds. The indictments have created a
sensation. Both Clark and Cobban deny
any fraud.

an Old Feud.

result of a bitter neighborhood feud,
G. D. Guild and his 19-year-old son

into Guild's corn. Bricker claims Guild
struck him with a hammer. Bad blood
lias existed between the families for
months, brought on originally by a dis
agreement over land. Both the Brickers
■were arrested.

•would meet a violent death, but said that
Bo one should take him from his land ex
cept in a pine box.

federal Judge Hanford Will Let No
More Conic In. ,
Seattle, Wash., June 29.—Judge C. H.
Hanford of the federal court has handed
flown a decision on a habeas corpus case
in which he made some pointed comments
on the past methods of bringing in Chi
nese aliens as American-born Chinese.
The court said he believed American wit
nesses had been bought to testify falsely
as to alien Chinese having been born in
Seattle and stated that hereafter he would
consider that all Chinese born in Seattle
prior to 1890 who had gone to China had
come back. He proposes to let no more
Chinese in on this claim. It is alleged
that a regular system has existed in this
city of hiring men to swear that Chinese
are known to them as having been born
in Seattle.

New and Important Work of the
Agricultural Department.
For These and Other Thing;* We
Will Become Independent
of Foreigners.
Washington, June Secreatry Wilson
reported; on the work of his department
at the cabinet meeting. Afterwards he
said:. -„. ...
I told my associates what we are doing now
in tobacco. This country sells $30,000,000
worth of tobacco, and . buys $13,000,000 of
high „ priced varieties. We have to pay
$5,000,000 for Sumatra wrappers. Our de
partment is teaching the American people
bow", to produce that in the . Unite"d. States.
We took the gold medal at the Paris % expo
sition for the finest Sumatra tobacco. We
have been paying $8,000,000 for filler tobacco,
mostly Cuban. We are conducting experi
ments now in this' line of production, with the
result; that we hope to see most of the filler
tobacco produced in the United Stales.
We have been importing wheats to improve
our own crops in "the United States. Ameri
can-made macaroni has been thought inferior
to the imported and" the reason for this was
that we did not have suitable macaroni
wheats. We have corrected this, so that
300,000 bushels will be grown in this coun
try this year solely for the macaroni mills.
It will be only a few. years before we make
all our own macaroni.
The agricultural department is now send
ing a man to the rice-growing countries of
the east. ■ -A. scientist who has already re
turned "from Japan has brought specimens of
rice so much more suitable for the gulf coast
than what we formerly had that we are now
producing most of the rice that we need,
and shall soon produce all that we use. There
will be over forty beet sugar factories in
operation this year. They have thrown out
the imported machinery already, both in field
and factory, and are using American inven
tions that are so much superior that we
expect -a great development in the business.
The sugar men have borrowed an idea from
the oil companies. At one of the oldest fac
tories in the United States, in Utah, they have
built three mills around the factory, one of
them | twenty-three miles away, from which
they run the juice from the factory in pipes
to the central station. Eastern capital is
rapidly developing the beet sugar industry in
the arid states through irrigation. In the
Arkansas Valley, for instance, $1,000,000 fac
tories have been put up.

Insufficient Evidence to Call for a !
Warrant Against Bank
New York, June 29.—United States Com- \
missioner Shields said to-day that the
evidence submitted ,by certain persons
looking to the prosecution of officers of;
the Seventh National bank was not sum-|
cient to justify him in issuing a warrant. !
The attorneys for the applicants for the j
warrant were given until next Monday to i
present additional advice.
At a conference of a number of the lead- ■
ing stockholders of the bank, it was decid- !
ed to. reorganize and to continue business, i
provided such action met with the appro- j
val of the stockholders. It was decided j
to send out a statement outlining the plan |
and calling upon the stockholders for an
assessment of 100 per cent.
The complaint on which a warrant was
asked alleged over-certification on a check
for $300,000 drawn on the Seventh na
tional bank by Marquand & Co. to the
order of the National Park bank.

Ruler of Guam Said to Indulge in
Language Unnecessarily
Mow York Sun Sooclal Scrvlca.
Washington, June 29. —General Hey
wood, commandant of the Marine corps,
has officially protested against the
violence of language employed by Com
mander Seaton Schroeder, the governor
of Guam, in a naval order which he issued
in regard to ihe misconduct of certain
marines at that station. Heywood is in
receipt of a number of applications from
marines-stationed at Guam who were
anxious to be transferred from that sta
| tion. They qomplain that they are not \
able to remain longer under Schroeder's
command and say that officer is unjustly J
■ severe in his methods of punishing by
I wholesale for the misdemeanors of a few.
General Heywood says that no more j
than three men have been guilty of mis- I
conduct, and Schroeder's command is in i
so demoralized a state that he is unable j
to ascertain offenders and punish those i
who are culpable. His system of deny- !
[ ing liberty to all the men of his command •
has produced a serious state of affairs.
The navy department'has received a full
j report of the situation from Schroeder,
I but nothing has yet been given out on the |
| subject. The navy department does not
I approve of Schroeder's action, and it is I
! possible the secretary of the navy will |
: send a letter of admonition to the gov- I
I ernor of Guam and may, at the instance of j
. General Heywood, detail a court of in
quiry which will investigate the whole !
; situation on the island.

on those accounts' are much better than ,

Famous Steel Head Salmon of the
Pacific I Is a New Home-In- i
terestin& Experiment by the V.
S. Fish Commission.
, Special to The Journal.
Duluth, Minn., June 29. —An Interesting
experiment has been Under way for the
past four years by the United States fish
commission at the station here. It has
now resulted in the successful planting
and acclimatization in Lake Superior of
a new food fish. This is the famous steel
head salmon of the Pacific, a salt water ;
fish exclusively heretofore.
It was believed this fish would thrive
in the cold, fresh waters of Lake Su
perior, where so many other salmonidae
grow. Four years ago, therefore, the
I commission sent several thousand fry
here and planted them on the north shore
of the lake, near Port Arthur, and at Sil
ver inlet, both points on the Canadian
side. The following year a larger number ,
was planted off Isle Royale. and since
then the planting has been kept up.
Now from time to time the catch of an
occasional steelhead is reported and from
the size of those found it is evident they
are growing about a pound a year in these
fresh waters. It is also evident, from cer
; tain modifications of some of those speci
! mens caught, that they have been propa
gating and are increasing naturally. Fish
of this kind five pounds in weight have
J been caught the past few days. These
i salmon are now spawning, and notices
are being sent out asking all fishermen
who find them in their nets to throw them ',
back in the water, in order that the work ]
of the government may be aided as far as j
j The salt water steelhead salmon, as
! modified by existence in Lake Superior, is
said to have a most delicious flavor, to be ,
; well shaped and firm, and to have a flesh
of a beautiful red.
I The planting of these fish will now pro
ceed with much greater rapidity, and with
this and the natural increase It is ex
pected that it will soon become a common
j fish in this lake.
"Never cross question an Irishman from
the old sod," advises one of the foremost
railroad attorneys of the age. "Even if
he does not think of an answer he will
stumble into some bull that will demoral
ize the court and jury, and whenever a
witness tickles a jury his testimony gains
vastly in its influence.
"Yes, I'm speaking from experience.
The only witness who ever made me throw
up my hands and leave the courtroom was
a green Irishman. A section hand had
been killed by an express train and his
widow was suing for damages. I had a
good case, but made the mistake of try
ing to turn the main witness Inside out.
"In his quaint way he had given a
graphic description of the fatality, occa
sionally shedding tears and calling on the
saints. Among other things he swore
positively that the locomotive whistle was
not sounded until after the whole train
had passed over his departed friend. Then
I thought I had him.
" 'See here, McGinnis,' said I, 'you admit
that the whistle blew?'
" 'Vis, sor; it blewed, sor.'
" 'Now, if that whistle sounded In time
to give Michael warning the fact would be
ia favor of the company, wouldn't it?'
" 'Vis, Bor, and Mike would be tistifyin'
here this day." The jury giggled.
" 'Never mind that. You were Mike's
friend, and you would like to help his
widow out, but just tell me now, what
earthly purpose there could be for the
engineer to blow that whistle after Mike
had been struck?'
" 'I presume thot the whistle wore for
the nixt man on the tnrack, sor.'
"I left and the widow got all she asked."

London, June 29.—Alice Xielson's op

Start the Day Right.
The breakfast is perhaps the most im
portant meal of the day. Europeans usu
ually eat a very light breakfast. Many
Americans have stomach trouble because
they eat too much, or food of not the
; right sort for the morning" meal. An ideal
breakfast is a baked apple or some other
fruit, a dish of Grape- Nuts Food with a
little cream, and a cup of Postum Food
Leave off all meat, hot biscuits, etc.
Grape-Nuts and Postum both furnlah th«
phosphate of potash together with other
i food elements that go to make up brain
and nerve centers as well as muscle and
tissue, and both can b« digested by the
stomach of an infant.
It is the part of wisdom nowadays to
use food especially selected for nourish
ment and that can be easily digested.

Mrs. Riley, 125 Chestnut St., Camden,
N. J., says she formerly breakfasted on
chops, hot biscuits and coffee. "After such
■ a meal I would have severe pains and they
would laat sometimes far into the night."
She finally determined on a change in her
diet and had for breakfast only Grape
■ Nuts Food and a little cream with Pos
tum Food Coffee. She says, "In a very
' few days the Intestinal trouble all disap
-1 peared. I have regained my old-time
weight, lost the irritability and nervous
ness, and life takes on a new aspect.
"When I feel a little exhausted in the
. day I simply drop everything and stir a
spoonful of Grape-Nuts in a little cream
or hot milk, and in ten minutes I have re
, gained my vigor and freshness."
Grape-Nuts Food is the beat when
served just as it comes from the package
without any cooking whatever. The food
has already been cooked ten or twelve
i hours in the process of manufacturing it.
i When made up into puddings, pies and
; other desserts it does not hurt it to be
