CALAIS, Me., Mny 24.-Happy above
all others in this sun-kissed, throat
parched, water-cursed state are the
citizens of Washington county who live
along the Sunrise line, across whlcl
lies the English land, flowing rich with
the tender Julcea of the rye and whosa
air Is fragrant with the uncensured
drafts of the distillery.
The lid Is down in Washington coun
ty. But not too hard. In fact, the lid
Is closed here with a very gentle and
susceptible spring, permitting it to rise
at the touch of a child.
Close at Hand
Right across the St. Crolx river is the
town of St. Stephen In New Bruns
wick. The first building across the
bridge is the custom house, the second
a saloon and the red-eye dispensary
has got the government annex lashed
to the rigging so far as business is
' At early morn the law abiding citizen
of Calais arises from his couch, and
before he has complained to his wife
about the coffee is reminded that ho
has pressing business In St. Stephen.
He saunters forth to join the innum
erable caravan which moves to the
abode of the tinkling glasses and the
home of the frabjeous bun.
He may have gone across the dark
and rolling river with sadness gnaw
ing at his heart and sorrow clutching
at his appendix, but anon, also later,
he Teturns singing joyful tidings, and
with a small bunch at his rear pocket

are sometimes wont to carry a wicked

Other Ways to Get It
But to those who either by distance
from the bridge or home duties are
unable to take the trip across the
river there are other and scarcely less
easy methods of obtaining a glorious,
gladsome slant. Washington county
teems with peddlers able to deal out
the ardent from all sorts of queer re
ceptacles. Of course, there is the
ancient book and cane devices, but not
so much in favor now because of the
notoriety which they have gained.
But with the spread of information
new and better contrivances have been
made necessary. It was not long ago
that a stranger drove Into town with a
mammoth load of squashes, for which
he charged the stupendous price of 75
cents each. The housewives were as
tounded at his audacity, with squashes
retailing at 2 cents a pound. Every
squash had been cut open in a notched
circle, all but the shell scooped out,
and Inside lay. a pint flask of a chem
ical combination which could be
drunk for whisky. The load of
squashes was disposed of in short
In His Hat
A clerical looking gentleman, "on a
walking trip to study the geological
formation of the state," made quite a
mint of money. He was quite dis
tinguished appearing, never being
seen without his silk tile.
■As the farmers began to get better
acquainted with him he took off his
hat to them, turned a tiny faucet In
the tin compartment which filled the
upper part and let out the desired
Never In the history of the state

Five. Legged Calf
One versatile man drove a "five
legged calf" all over the county, os
tensibly endeavoring to sell the ani
mal. Not for weeks did the sheriff dis
cover that, the reason the calf was
never sold was because Its fifth leg
had been nicely plastered and strapped
on, then covered with hair, and was
no more than n receptnele for about
two quarts of that which made John
B. Oough famous.

TO BE RETURNED
YOUNG AND BURTON TO MAKE
CLAIM BANK TO BE SOLVENT
They Declare There Are Sufficient As
sets to Liquidate Institution's
Indebtedness — Cashier
By Associated Press.
SAN FRANCISCO, May 24.— 1t was
announced today that J. B. Young,
former president, and E. L. Burton,
attorney for the collapsed Goldfleld
bank and trust company, would re
turn to Goldfleld, Nev., without re
sisting extradition. They were ar
rested here last night on telegraphic
warrants from the sheriff at Gold
fleld, charging them with embezzle
ment of funds for the bank.
Young claims to have brought $27,
000 in securities here with which to
negotiate a loan, but said all the se
curities had been returned to the dis
trict judge at Carson City, pending the
application of a receiver. Young said
this morning he cannot make any
statement of the condition of the bank
at present, but claims it Is solvent.
He blames the cashier, J. R. Boal, for
loose bookkeeping methods and says
he never could get a trial balance
"If Boal had stuck to the bank we
could have borrowed $20,000 down here
and got through the trouble."
"I am still president of the bank, al
though I had sold my Interest under
certain conditions and I nm anxious
to get back and make application for
the appointment of a receiver."
Francis L. Burton, the attorney,
claims that instead of his owing the
oank it owes him. He claims he should
have a credit of $6000 on the books.
"And if it ia not there," he said, "It
Is due to poor bookkeeping."
ARked for a statement of the bunk's
condition, he said he could not give
one. But he added: "Take the item of
$78,000 which it Is claimed the bank
owes depositors; against this we have
$27,000 In securities returned to the
district judge, $35,000 In gold collateral
left In the bank, real estate valued at
$15,000 and $6000 In a new hotel build
ing in Goldfleld.
"This makes $82,000 and besides we
have 100,000 shares In a mining com
pany, worth fifty cents a share, and
numerous small outside holdings."

Served Term In Prison — Got Officials
to Invest in Mine
By Associated Press.
BOSTON, May 24.— Chief Inspector
Watts of the lioston bureau of crimi
nal Investigation says Francis L. Bur
ton was arrested In Beaumont, Colo.,
in 1904, and brought to this city on a
charge of defrauding the New York
Central railroad out of 12500 here. The
money was collected by Burton, It is
alleged, on his claim that he was In
jured in a railroad accident. It de
veloped that Burton was, hurt In a
dispute with miners In Colorado.
He was sentenced to serve eighteen
months in the Duer Island house of
correction. The officials say Burton
was a model prisoner. Superintendent
Garrlsh was much Impressed by Bur
ton's account of his own reported mis
fortunes. Just before Burton left Deer

Deputy Superintendent Bates $5000 in
mines said to exist in the west. The
venture proved unprofitable to . the
prison officials, they assert.

TELLS WHY HE CHARGED THE
BENNETT ESTATE $2500 -
IS IMPATIENT TO TESTIFY
Nebraskan Declares That He Is Tired
of Hearing Insinuations and
Wishes to Clear the
By Associated Press.
NEW HAVEN. Conn., May 24.—Wil
liam J. Bryan appeared In the probate
court today at a hearing on the ac
counts of the estate of tHe late Philo S.
Bennett, of which Mr. Bryan is admin
istrator. During the examination Mr.
Bryan was submitted to a rapid fire of
questions from Judge Henry Stoddard,
counsel for Mrs. Grace I. Bennett,' the
widow, and at times considerable im
patience was shown by both the ques
tioner and the witness.
Attorney White was first put on the
stand as counsel for the administrator
to explain the accounts, but Mr. Bryan
interrupted so frequently that Judge
Stoddard suggested that Mr. Bryan
wait until he was on the stand before
he attempted to explain matters.
Mr. Bryan then said: "Your honor,
I object to the insinuations thrown out
by Judge Stoddard. For eighteen
months I have heard these insinuations
and I am tired of It. I am willing
to testify. I want, to testify."
Mr. Bryan went on the stand and
was questioned by Judge Stoddard.
Judge Stoddard took up the item of
$2500 for Mr. Bryan's own services.
"Mr. Bryan, what did you charge
"For usual and extraordinary ser
vices as executor," replied Mr. Bryan.
"What. were the usual and what were
the extraordinary services?"
"The usual services were those per
formed as executor, and the extra
ordinary services were those in con
testing the attempt to remove the exec
utor and in defense against the attacks
upon the will itself."
"I ask you again, what have you
done In settlement of this estate?"
Discharged Duties of Executor
Mr. Bryan replied: "I have dis
charged the duties of executor to tht
best of my ability, and while I have
told the attorneys to put into the ac
count what they thought to be a fair
charge for my services, I intend to
use a part of that money to carry out
the desire of Mr. Bennett for which he
set apart certain trust funds. The in
heritance taxes have reduced the trust
funds, and I shall use about $1300 to
make up the deficiency."
The wish of Mr. Bennett was that
prizes be given in about forty colleges
for excellence in essays on the topic,
"Free, Principles of Government," and
the money for the prizes waß provided
for in the will,
Afterward Mr. Bryan was questioned
as to the items included In his own fee
for services of $2500. He was asked
whether it Included pay for any trips
from his home In Nebraska to New
York or New Haven for himself or
New Haven in connection with the he
quest of $50,000 for himself and family
contained In the sealed letter left by
Mr. Bennett. He replied that it did
not include these trips.
Mr. Bryan expected to go to New
York tonight and return here tomor
row, when the hearing will be con
Soon after the close of the session
today Mr. Bryan paid a call on Mrs.
Bennett, the widow of Phllo S. Bennett.

Cannot Be Secured — Moro
Men Sworn In
By Associated Press.
CHICAGO, May 24.— Final rejection
of union demands, especially those of
the express drivcro, was officially an
nounced today by the employers. They
demanded practically unconditional
surrender. Neither side in the strike
made a direct step toward peace and
each was apparently waiting the next
move of Us opponent. The employers
sent their goods all over the city un
der police protection without encoun
There was one peace effort today and
It was enveloped in mystery. It was
said that "a prominent business man"
was making efforts to Induce the man
agers of the express companies to
make terms satisfactory to the striking
drivers and that he had promised them
"good news." Nothing came of the
attempt, however, and there was no
good news tonight for either side.
The strike in the lumber district
spread today with great rapidity and
practically all business of that kind is
at a standstill. Some few lumber yards
are still In operation, but their volume
of business is so small as to amount to
practically nothing. A number of
planing mills and sash and door fac
tories were compelled to shorten oper
ations today and by Friday at least
will be compelled to close entirely If
the supply of lumber Is not largely in
creased. The lumber yards made little
effort to transact business today and
were awaiting, for drivers to be sent
them by the Employers' Teaming com
pany. A number of these, it is ex
pected, will be at work tomorrow and
business will' be resumed In a small de
gree at least.
Could Not Get Protection
One cause for the lack of energy on
the part of the employers in the lum
ber district today was that the city
was not able to afford them police
Mayor Dunne provided against this
contingency tonight by issuing a call
for 1000 extra policemen, who will be
sworn in as rapidly as applications are
filed by suitable men. This will be the
second 1000 extra policemen sworn in
since the commencement of the strike.

of the Express Drivers' union; Bernard

and John H. Donohue, a member of
the same union, will appear before
Judge Kohlsaat in the United States
District court tomorrow morning. At
torney Mayer, acting for the Employ
ers' association, will ask that the men
be sent to jail on a charge of contempt
of court In refusing to answer questions
before Master in Chancery Sherman,
which questions they had previously
been ordered to answer by the court.
The men were ordered to make
an answer on Tuesday, although they
claim a personal privilege in refusing.
Today they were asked the same ques
tions, and when they again refused to
reply Attorney Mayer announced that
he -would make a motion that they bo
arrested for contempt of court.

In the injunction proceedings have
everything prepared awaiting an or

have been busy and are ready to file
