JUDGE MADE A SPIEL
Tried to Bake ■ Thief Believe
Ho Was Not Much Gailty.
Took Hair An Hour of IIIh Valuable
Time in Trying to Convince
Mini of It.
Judge llcDooald tried very hard Tues
day morning to prevent a man from
breaking into the penitentiary. A few
days ago Charlie Maynard of Pallman
bad b $44) saddle stolen from him. Dep
uty Sheriff Steward Boon captured the
thief riding the saddle. He proved to
be Ira Frailer, a man of about 30years.
When Frazier wan brought before the
*uperior court Saturday on a grand lar
ceoy charge, which in a penitentiary of
fense, lie pi. aded guilty. Then tbecoart
postponed sentence and inquired of
Sheriff < anutl the particulars of the
crime. The sheriff told him of the stolen
waddle am! Frazier's claim that May.
nanl owed him |15. When passing the
ranch Frazier found no one at home and
.'M'pri>i riated the saddl ■, leaving an old
ouein its place. The judge remarked
then that he had a notion to have
Frazier redu< c bis plea of guilty of grand
larceny to guilty of petty larceny only.
When Frazier came up for sentence Tues
day morning the judge made one of his
characteristic spiels of half an hour*
length in an attempt to induce the prie
oner to withdraw his plea of guiltj (.f
the higher < rime and gain the consent of
the prosecuting attorney to his little
scheme to save the man his citizenship
and lijh vote.
Hnr Frazier would Dot withdraw his
plea ior the Btated reason that be would
have to lay in jail until June fur trial,
and then, in all probability, be tonvict
•<! <>f grand larceny, uh the prosecuting
attorney refused to reduce the charge,
and it would only be time wasted. He
preferred to receive his sentence and be
gin serving it out an soon as possible.
rhen the court took a new tack. lie
asked R. 1,. McCroskey, who was in the
room, if he would act oh Frazier's at
torney. Mr. McCroskey (said he did not
want to d) so, but was, of course, Riib
]•<•' <o the order of the court in the
matter. The judge appointed him and
the prisoner and attorney went out for
a private conference. The prosecuting
attorney still refused to consent to a
plea of guilty of petty larceny only, and
tor this reason Frazier would'not with
draw the plea already made, even to
please so great a man as the judge.
Frazier was finally sentenced to one year
Hi the penitentiary.
Two Oilier Sentences.
Frank Leonard, who was brought
down from Tekoa last week on a charge
of Belling liquor which he had stolen
without a lie. use, entered a guilty plea
and was sentenced to four months in the
county jail. Joe Casey, his partner, was
Kent up for three months and thirty
days for carrying concealed weapons.
Another Case Against Clifford.
W m. Clifford, who is charged with the
big wheat steal from the Shawnee ware
house, and who was already in jail
awaiting trial, was given further trouble
Monday afternoon. He was arraigned
before Justice kirkland on a separate
charge of larceny by embezzlement of
805 sacks of barley from the warehouse,
the property of J. I). Evans.
Clifford waived examination on this
charge and was remanded to jail. (has.
De France was held in £700 bonds and
Ross Rupert in $500 to appear as wit
nesses in the case.
Another information was filed against
Clifford Wednesday morning, charging
larceny by embezzlement of the Strieb
wheat. This is a part of the wheat
originally charged as taken. Other
cases will lie filed from time to time,
until there will probably be ten or
twelve segregations of the original
charge. The date of pleading on the
Streilt charge was postponed until
March 28.
The <). U. &. N agent has been Bum
moned to produce the shipping records
from the Shawnee warehouse in court.
A Cnll'ax Boy.
A. C. Kciser, a Colfaz boy, was arrest
ed at Kendrick, [daho Saturday morn
ing on a complaint tile*! in the court of
Justice McDowell at Oakesdale by J.
\\ oolever. a hotel proprietor, who
charged him* with obtaining money
under False pretenses by securing his en
dorsement of a draft for (35 which was
worthless. Keiuer waived his extradi
tion rights and came to Colfaz with
Sheriff Canuti Sunday, where he was at
once set at liberty on (500 bonds, fur
nislied by his father, J. L. Keiser, and I.
Lefrancis. .Monday he was taken to
Oakesdale for trial and quickly exoner
ated and turned loose.
Reiser say.- the draft was drawn upon
a Chicago firm for which ho wan travel
ing upon telegraphic authority of the
hi.use, and that it was good and would
be paid. There was no evidence that it
had been dishonored, and that Mr.
Woolever had been frightened into mak
ing complaint by a Mr. Schwaub, an
agent for a coffee and spice firm for
whom lie had formerly worked, and with
whom lie had trouble over a settlement.
The complaint was made only two days
after the draft had been cashed, before
it was half way to Chicago, where it w .s
to be paid.
As soon as acquitted of the first
charge, Keiser was again arrested on
complaint of Mr. Sehwaub, the agent of
Dieter A Co., who charged him with
utterance of forged orders for goods,
upon which commissions for their sale
were drawn. Of this charge, Mr. Keiser
says he left the employ of Dieter k Co.
about December 1. The house claimed
then that he owed it £ISS for money
advanced, while his accounts showed
that the house was indebted to him £115
for commissions on goods sold. The
tirm demanded the $185, which he re
fused to pay atid asked for his £lir>.
Now the company charges him with
forging orders for goods which he sent
ip, which he protests ie untrue.
McDonald's Arraigned.
Jnmts and Dan McDonald were ar
raigned in the superior court Tuesday
morning on a charge of burglary for the
theft of a load of wheat from John
IfcCanee. I. D. Kimball of Pullman
was appointed attorney for Dan. James
will be represented by E. K. llanna.
They were given until Friday to plead.
Stole Beer and Egss.
The bright weather has brought with
it the hobo and the tramp and the bur
glary mason is again opened. Gentry
of this Btripe broke into the 0. R. & N.
freight depot Monday night, effecting
entrance through a window. A case of
bottled beer and a ca-e of eggs were
Btolen. While searching for the plunder
Sheriff Canott Tuesday morning found
hidden under the wagon bridge near the
I residence of Wm. (odd a box each of
j dried apples, dried prunes ami raisins.
| These were not stolen either from the
freight house or from a car on a Rifle
track which had been broken open, and
the officers are at a loss to know where
they came from. One box of these goods
was marked for Tort Ben ton, Montana,
and this plunder was no doubt thrown
j from a through train. Though the hid
ing places in a large radius of town have
been thoroughly searched for the beer
and eggn, no trace of them or the thieves
I nan been obtained.
Lecture on Africa.
Chas. A. Barry, professor of modern
languages at the Agricultural college,
waH greeted with a full house and an ap
preciative crowd at hi* lecture on
"Africa, North and South,'' last Satur
day evening. He dealt historically with
the South African war and in nn'enter
taining manner. As a noted linguist,
Prof. Harry in familiar with the Boer
language and pave his audience the
proper pronunciation of the barbed wire
words ho often Keen in the dispatches.
While at Colfax, the professor organized
a class in French, which will meet each
Saturday afternoon at the Main street
school building.
PARE TO EIiLENSBUKG.
Delegates to Stale Convention Given
a Reduced Hate.
J. W.Lysons, secretary of the republi
can state central committee, has notified
Chairman Pickrel! of the county com
mittee that for the republican state con
vention at Bllensburg April ."> a round
trip rate of one and one-fifth fare lias
been secured ov-ir the principal railroad
lines of the state, for the benefit of the
delegates. This rate can be obtained
only upon the certificate plan. That is,
those going to Elleusburg to attend the
convention must purchase single trip
tickets going (not more than three days
before the date of convention), paying
full fare, but obtaining certificate-re
ceipt therefor,from the agent from whom
ticket in purchased. This certificate
must be countersigned at Elleneburg by
the eerretary of the state central com
mittee, and will then on presentation to
the Northern Pacific agent at Ellens
burg, entitle the holder to return ticket
for one fifth the regular fare. It is im
portant to obtain this certificate at
time of purchase of ticket to Eilens
burg, as without it full fare must be
paid for return ticket.
Those delegates residing on other lines
than the Northern Pacific will purchase
one-way ticket in the same manner from
their station to junction point with the
Northern Pacific, taking receipt as
above; then purchase v ticket from the
Northern Pacific agent to Ellensburg,
and proceed as outlined above, taking
certificate receipt in each instance.
ASSESSMENT NOTES.
One Deputy Has Thrown Up His
HI Paid Job.
\V. A. Wyer, field deputy assessor for
Tp. Hi, R. 38, 39, -10, 41, has resigned
his position. No appointment has yet
been made to the vacancy and probably
none will be made. Some one or more
of the other deputies who first get
through witli their assignments will
probably be sent to this field, as it is
becoming too late to break a new man
in.
Since the refusal of the commissioners
to confirm the appointment of (ieorge
W. Case, Jr., as superintendent of the
field work of assessment it has been
necessary for Assessor Siler to leave his
office work frequently to answer the
calls at different point* of the field depu
ties and keep their work up to the ellii'
ient and equal standard laid down.
.Monday he went to Garfield and Tues
day evening was called to Uniontown.
There is small wonder that the t oard
of equalization often finds complaints of
unequal assessment when there are 25
deputy assessors in the field, all with
different ideas an to values. For in
stance, Deptuy I. N. Nye of the Whelan
country reported that he was listing
wild oat land at a reduction of $ 1 an
acre, while J. V. Crisp of Garfield says a
man should be assessed £1 higher as a
line for permitting the wriggly things to
overrun his fields.

COLFAX (iAZKTTE, COLFAX, WASHINGTON, MARCH 23, 1900.
TWO RUNAWAY BOYS
Slole Horses from their Fathers
and Skipped (Mil.
Captured Tuesday By the Sheriff
of Lincoln County at
Davenport.
Napoleon Baynes of near Johnson was
at Colfax Monday endeavoring to get on
the trail of two runaway boys—his own
Hon and Charlie Henderson, a neighbor's
boy. Roth are about 16 years old.
They left home Sunday at noon oh
horseback, but their flight was not dis
covered until 'A o'clock Monday morn
ing. The parents of each thought their
boy was at the home of his friend. The
Hay Dee boy's mother worried so great
ly, however, over the failure of her son
to return home that Mr. Haynes went
over to Henderson's at ."} o'clock in the
morning, when it. was found that they
had gone out into the wide world to
Htk their fortunes.
Captured at Davenport.
The boys were heard of Monday even
ing from St. John, which town they
panned through at 10 o'clock Monday
morning. The sheriff's office was noti
tified Tuesday aiternoon by Sheriff Gard
ner of Lincoln county that he had the
runaway pair in jail there and the horses
taken from their fathers in a livery
stable.
.Mr. Haynes and Mr. Henderson were
at Colfax when the nous came and Bent
a deputy sheriff after their sons, with in
structions that when they arrived here
to jail them. They propose to give the
boys a wholesome leesonand to let them
sweat for their misdeeds and the anxiety
caused their parents.
The runaways were last Bummer taken
by their fathers on a trip to Lake Che
lan, and they were undoubtedly headed
for that country.

UNIONTOWX KEPUBIjICANS.
Preparing lor the Organization of
a Stronjj Club.
In the earlier days of Whitman coun
ty Uniontown was a great democratic
stronghold. Not until 1898 did the
people there take kindly to the light of
republicanism, casting 2.'{ republican
votes in the city and .'SO in the country
precinct, as against 12 in the city and
20 in the country in 1896.
While the two precincts gave thefunion
ists on the state ticket a few votes the
best of it in 1896, the republicans of
that vicinity are a wide awake and en
terprising lot and propose to give the
democrats a race for their money, as
the following announcement from there
shows:
"There was an enthusiastic meeting
of republican voters in I'niontown last
Saturday evening for the organization
of a republican club. They elected tem
porary officers and there was much in
terest taken at the meeting and arrange
ments made for an organization of a
permanent republican club there next
Saturday evening, when every republi
can of the vicinity is requested to be
present.
"Uniontown, although the center of
the stronghold of the democratic party
of this county, has a nnmber of thor
oughly wideawake republicans who cal
culate to look out for the interest of the
republican party in this part of the
country.'"
Times Are Changing.
The number of farmers' institutes be
ing held throughout the country and
the general trend of discussion at the
gatherings, argues well for the agricul
tural industry in this section, says New
West Trade. The conviction is gaining
a hold on all minds given to serious con
sideration, that wheat raising is not the
profitable pursuit that it once was and
that farmers will have to look to some
\ thing else. The institutes and the ex
periments at the agricultural college
have been instrumental of late in dis
seminating much valuable information
among the tillers of the soil. The influx
| of eastern farmers is also making itself
felt. With the improved methods that
i will before long be in vogue, it is not un
' reasonable to predict that the next two
or three years will find the farmers of
| the inland empire supplying the home
market with most of its needs and the
people of our towns and cities do longer
i dependent upon the somewhat stale
products of the east.

CURRENT PERIODICALS.
i In the March Century, Ernest Seton-
Lbompson begins a story of "The Na
tional 'Zoo' at Washington," in which
he shows wild animals to be as interest
ing in captivity as in their natural state
of freedom. Dr. Weir Mitchell, in "Or,
North and His Friends," presents the
opening chapters of the most important
serial be has written since "Hugh
Wynne." Frederick A. Cook, continuing
bis account of the Belgica Antarctic Ex
pedition, writes of "The Ciant Indians
of lierra del Fuego." No one will be
surprised to learn that even this race of
remote and hardy aborigines is dying
out before the advance of civilization
and the rilK
The nineteenth century will leave be
hind a great legacy of 'mysteries which
it could not solve, and which probably
remain mysteries to the end of time.
Fhe most notable of these are to be re
called in detail in the April Ladies-
Home Journal in an article on "The
Mysteries of the Century." Each oue
set the whole world agog with excite
ment and speculation in its day, but
has faded almost completely from the
mind of the public.
Keliet lor Puerto Rico.
Washington, March 10— After a de
bate, at times spirited, extending over
parts of two days, the senate passed the
Porto Rican relief appropriation bill. As
passed, the measure carries $2,095, 000,
the president being authorized to use
that sum "for public education, public
works and other governmental and pub
lic purposes," in Porto Rico. Mr. Allen
of Nebraska, offered an amendment to
the bill, declaring that the constitution
extends over Porto Rico by its own
force, but it was lost by the decisive
vote of 3G to 17. Mr. Jones of Arkan
sas, withdrew a free trade amendment
offered by him, and that proposition,
therefore, did not reach a vote. Other
efforts to amend the bill were fruitless.
It ie very hard to stand idly by and
see our dear ones suffer while" awaiting
the arrival of the doctor. An Albany
(N. V.) dairyman called at a drug store
there for a doctor to come and pee his
child, then very sick with croup. Not
finding the doctor in, he left word for
him to come at once on his return. He
also bought a bottle of Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy, which he hoped would
give some relief until the doctor should
arrive. In a few hours he returned, say
ing the doctor need not come, as the
child was much better. The druggist,
Mr. Otto Scholz, says the family has
since recommended Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy to their neighbors and friends
until he has a constant demand for it
from that part of the country. For
