Attorneys for the defense conspmed nearly all of the day sessions with a review of the evi dence. In his argument Special Prose cutor Frank H. Kelly of Tacoma said: "I want you to believe as I do, that no thought by this woman of bringing about the death of Claire Williamson was conceived before the dead woman and her sister had been for at least two weeks under the personal control of this defendant. "However, the element of lust for wealth of her patients' jewelry, ready money, funds in the bank and An es. tate of large proportions was greater ,than she could ,withstand. And cotn mencing with the date of February 10 she left no effort undoneothat would bring about the death of both patients, that she could acquire their pose.-. slone. "In the hands of this designtin pa* son they were treated like it bua.le of soiled linen, run through a wri'ger and made to produce every atom of financial nutrtment the circumstances could supply." The Motive. Going into the motive for ClAsre Williamson's death, Mr. ItelyS pre Vented the prosecution's claim that It had traced the defendant's culpyhllity from the time of ti.

Throughout the denunciation the defendant eat with eyes closed bft with jaws set firmly as though in de fiance of all that could be said against her. It will require several hours for the jury to read the judge's Clharge and the documentary evidence.

Pitifuli storlestncontinue to be recelved of 'people of small means ilnvesting .verything they pos ses.ed in the 7 per cent bonds. Late Thursday afternoon, after a re. celver had been appointed for the Washington Orchard Irrlgation and I~rult company, J. G. Wilson and wife Igve a deed to 40 'acres of land In Walla Walltta county, nashington, In exchange for $5,000 of the blnds of the Columbia River )rchard company, the bonds being then utterly w~orthluss. The exchange was conducted through the Coast Realty company. Wilson and wife began suit yesterday In the superior court to cancel the deed, Which was madr, out In blank. Thu defendants are Carl M. Anson. D. (' Ferris and Johnt Doe, doing business as the ('oast Realty company; .Ieorga P. Rogers and J. W, Todd. Acord, Ing to Wilson's attorney, all the Irre sponsihle real estate, firms In the northwest had "orehiard bonds" for sale. They evidently got theon from headquarters and sold them for what they would bring, taking money, landl or any other propelty that could be convertid inmn money. Of late the ad vertisement "Wanted, house in ex-! change for orchard bonds," has been a tfmtllhr one in tthe newspapers. A person wishing to dispose of his house would find the advertiser willing to give him 7 per cent guaranteed bonds ant! let the housne wner eot his own price on the hoIl, . This was very tempting. A yaung mlan who tried to find the Columbhia River Orchard colm pany'p office thlday and who would not give his naml' said that he hsad ex changed $7r,000 worth of property In Montana for I,,und and was ruined. A Faverite Ruse. The attorney for a bondholder says that a favorite rnae of the 'rbond seller was to hint to someone that a certain man .in Hpokane was buying the bonds at par. The man who recelved the 'hint would send a bond to the Spokane In vestor and, sure enough, $10 wuukl be forthcoming. The lucky man would then spread the news and there would he a stampelde to 7y bonds below par to resell to the s'pokane enthusiast, but he never mu~( tnore than one pur chase...
