GONE TO THE JURY.
Hearing: of the Friedrich Case
Comes to a Close.
NO VERDICT YET REACHED.
A Whole Dsy Occnpled In Argument
A Real Istste Man Charted With
At 10:30 o'clock last night tbe Friedrich mur
der case, which has been on trial for five days,
was given to tbe jury. The entire day and three
hours of the evening were takeu up in tbe argu
ment of counsel. There was a large audience
during the entire day, and at night the court
room was filled to overflowing. Every seat was
taken and a row oi men standing ran clear
around the walls of tbe room. There was a
sprinkling of ladies among those present.
Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Mcßride
opened for the state upon the nonveniog of the
court at i»:30 am. His speech consisted mainly
of a detailed review of tbe evidence, drawing
out tbe strong points against the defendant It
wss twenty minutes of tbe noon hour when be
finished, but W. B. Tyier, junior counsel for the
defense, at onee started upon his argument.
When he was well under way the noon recess
was announced, but at 1:30 p. m. he resumed
and spoke ior two hours in the advancement of
tbe defendant's claim of an alibi aud a reply to
0. W. Tyler, senior counsel for tbe accused,
began speaking at 3:30. upon a line of defense of
which there had been no inkling, an ingenious
theory of suicide. He argued that from tbe con
ditions of tbe shooting this was the most plaus
ible explanation. The wound was just back of
theesr, the ball going straight in. Neither a
shot from the frout nor the rear could have
nade such a wound. Furthermore, the skin
was powder-burnt, and such a thing could
aot happen from a shot at three yards, the dis
tance at which Scherbriug said the man stood
who fired. Scherbring a conflicting statements
st different times also tended to establish a
suicide theory. The speaker then reviewed at
length the testimony in the case, with forcible
comments upon different witnesses and the
argument for the state. His address lasted
th« adjournment at 5 o'clock, and was re
turned at 7:30. It was ten minutes of 9 o'clock
when he closed.
After a brief recess. Prosecuting Attorney
Miller began the closing argument of tbe trial.
It was the shortest of the day, lasting scarcely
an hour, but it was carefully worded and appar
ently had its effect on the jury. It touched but
little upon the details of the evidence, but was a
strong appeal to the Jury for a conviction.
Judge Humes' charge to the Jury was thor
ough, concise and comprehensive. After defin
ing murder in tbe first and second degrees aud
■an'langhter, he explained minutely the
meaning of malice in tne eyes of the
lav. The subjects of circumstantial evidence
urtof motives for crime were also handled
completely. He instructed the Jury that they
ibooid rather adopt any reasonable hypotheses
sitstbe killing than that which would convict
fiie accused, and that the previous reputation of
tha defendant should have its weight in evi
dence unless overcome by testimony directly
beaiingonthe crime. He closed his instruc
tion with an explanation of the credit to l-e
given to the testimony of witnesses.
At tbe close of Judge Humes' charge, Bailiff
Bvron Brockway and E. Cookson wera sworn
in, and took charge of tbe jury. They at once
reared to the jury room, and at 1:30 tnia morn
ing were still deliberating.

ATTORNEI GRAAF SUED.
Be Ia Charged With Retaining Money
Due a Client.
J. Bamnel Graaf, the attorney who was re
cently under investigation with a view to his
debarment, was made the detendant yesterday
in a suit brought In the superior court by J. R.
Adams to recover |tt7s. The suit is the out
growth of the same trouble which caused the
movement to disbar Graaf. Adams claimed
that some months ago he gave the attorney two
uot*M ol f 1.5 for collection, that Graaf collected
the tnouey and appropriated It to his own use.
Adams had (Iraai arrested on a charge ol grand
larceny, and the latter had a hearing before Jus
tice Emerson, of Ballard, but was discharged.
Recently a committee was appointed by Judge
Humes to investigate GrHaf's conduct, and they
reported that the facts at command were not
sufficient to recommend Graaf's disbarment.
Adam* now brings a civil action to recover
of Graaf. He alleges that Graaf col
lected I.s" on the notes and sues for that amount

BOTH WANTED THE ROCK.
Two Men Quarrel Orrr m Bl( Gran it*
.•I**9"*®° * n<l amea Morenn aired a little
difficulty over a big rock at the meeting of the
ooara of public works yesterday. It seems that
me two men were out prospecting for ruble
, *® ne ln the northeast part of the city.
They came to a large round granite rock
higger than the one on Madison street. They
tV'th went away, but In a few days Morgsn went
back and commenced to drill into the granite to
find out what quality It was. He found it was
fine granite, and as the big boulder lay partly
on some lots he got written authority from
the owners to clear the rock away. Osten came
along about this time, and seeing the
fine quality of the granite, thought that
be wanted a share in it, so he went
to Street Commissioner Alexander and secured
a permit to clear tne street of the obstruction.
1 he rock was worth about $Wi, and to get rid of
Morgan, Osten promised to give him 175 to re
linquish his claim. Morgan went away
without his pay, but after three weeks
of waiting, he threatened dire consequences
if Osten did not pay him. Osten got scared and
appeared before the board of public works with
au attorney. Morgan also brought a lawyer
and the four men speut nearly an hour in
patching up an agreement between
themselves. About half of this time
was spent before the board and the rest out in
the hall, the parties getting so heated up over
the discussion that they were obliged to go out
in the hall to cool off. At the end of the hour's
ordeal they annoumcd that a compromise had
been effected, and that Osteu would would pay
Morgan |luo and they would call the quarrel
WEDDED TO A BRUTE.
Pitiful Tale of the Abused Wife of a
A half-starved looking woman, who had a
■till worie appearing baby, called on Chief of
Police Rogers yesterday and asked for protec
tion from her husband, John McSwain, a beach
comber, who lives on the Commercial «treei ex
tension over the tide fiats. The woman told a
pitiful tale of brutal treatment and said that
•be wanted to leave her husband, but was afraid
he would kill herself and child. The chle: Bent
the woman to the House of the Good Shepherd
and there the will be cared for for the present;
meanwhile the police will hunt up her husband
and investigate the woman's case.
A reporter saw Mrs. McSwain at the House of
the Good shepherd yesterday afternoon and she
appeared to be a truly pitiable object. Her
child, who is but three month* old, resembles
an Egyptian mummy and it would not appear
to be flesh and blood at all were it not for its
large, unnatural eyes, which shine with a pe
culiar lustre. The child when born weighed
nine and one-half pounds, and now, three
months old, it weighs but seven
pounds. The little one's skin is brown and
drawn and every bone stands out in painful
relief. .The condition of the mother, a girl of
about 19 years, is almost as bad as her child.
Bhe would not talk a great deal, but b'.tween
her sobs the said that she was married to
McSwain a year ago and that from afewjnonths
after their marriage he has abused her and
■ince the birth of her child his abuse has con
tinued with a tenfold increase; that from star
vation and beatings, she has beon compelled to
•eek another home.
fl'»i Jtot Guilty.
A. M. Fisk, the Pike street second-hand dealer
who was arrested a few days ago upon a charge
of violating a city ordinance in not keeping a
record of his purchases, was acquitted by Juds?e
Rivers yeaterday on the motion of Assistant Ciiv
Attorney Morris. The ordinance provides for
the punishment of pawnbrokers or dealers who
"loan money on chattels," oud inasmuch as
Fisk does strictly a second-hand business and
never takes any article in pawn, his case did
not come uudcr the terms of the ordinance.
Beer and Slw&ahea.
R. Jacques, who runs a boot and shoemaker
shop in the basement of the Arcade saloon, on
Washington street, was fined >3O by Justice Von
Tobcl yesterday for selling liquor to Indians.

get even." He paid his fine.

TO BE TOWED AWAY.
Steamer Emma Hayward Will
Go to Columbia River.
TOO SLOW FOR SOUND ROUTES.
He* Wheel Taken Out to Make the
Trip Safer—Steamship Passen
ger List—Water Traffic.
Among the latest changes In steamer* and
their runs made by the Union Pacific company's
new Puget sound port captain. E. R. Rathbone,
is the removal of the steamer Emma Hayward
from the Sound to the Columbia river. Borne
months ago the Hayward, while on the way
from Whatcom to Seattle, met with an accident
in which her shaft WHS broken. The steamer
WHS towed to Tacoma after a time, and
Port Captain Cianc ;y directed that repairs be
immediately made. Workmen took the wheel
out of the steamer and then the port car>tain
concluded to allow the repairs to wait a while
and no further action was taken with regard to
final disposition of the boat until a few days
ago. The Hayward was towed from Tacoma to
-eattle yesterday and she was immediately put
in shape for the ocean voyaee to Portland,
where she will be used the coining winter as a
tow boat for barges and ships on the
Columbia and Willamette rivers between
Portland and Astoria. The company's mam
moth Columbia river bar tug, Escort
No. 2, which has been on the ways at the Seattle
Dry Dock Company's works undergoing a gen
eral overhauling for the past mouth, will tow
the steamer around. The Escort Will leave Port
Townsend with the Hayward next Tuesday
morning, and she will then immediately put to
sea with her charge.
This will be the first time in the history of
Pacific coast steumboating that a stern-wheel
steamer has made the oceau voyage without
a wheel in place and without steam
up. It is the intention of the
company to complete repairs on the steamer at
Portland. The reasons for the company's tak
ing the boat around in such an apparently dis
abled condition are interesting. The Hayward
being, like all sternwheel steamers, a mere shell,
will be subjected to many severe wrenches and
twists from the ocean'* waves, and by the time
the treacherous Columbia river bar is crossed
the boat will be in a shaky condition. Should a
new wheel be put in the steamer here and the
boat be* allowed to propel herself around
the weir and tear on the frame
would be very severe, for in driving
along and keeping out of the trough of the sea
a uniform rate of speed could not be maintained
owing to the fact that a part of the time the
wheel, different from a propeller which is con
tinually submerged, would be out of the water.
Should a wave strike the bow the boat, instead
of rising with and mounting the wave, would
be driven head on into the wave, thus causing
great strain not only on the hull but on the
machinery, and the decks would
be flooded with water. In tow
ing all these difficulties of passage
are to a laree extent surmounted, and it may be
that the result of the experiment, if it proves
successful, will have the effect of causing steam
boat owners when shifting their shell built
boats from one district to another via the ocean,
to adopt the plan introduced by the Union Pa
ciiic Company with regard to the transferring of
The Hay ward is 175 feet long and thirty-two
feet Wide. She was built at Portland for the
Sound trade, end made the ocean passages from
the Columbia river about seven years ago. The
cause of the present changing ot the steamer's
run is due to the fact that *the people of the
Sound demand more elegant and faster means
of navigutlon than is afforded in steamers of the

New University Building to Be
NO CONTRACT WILL BE LET.
One Hundred Men Kept In Employment
for Eighteen Months—Bids for
The board of university land and building
commissioners yesterday decided to go to work
itself to construct the new main university
building without letting the contract In this
way tbe board expects to save money for the
state and to secure a better buildir.g than if the
whole work was let in one contract
The following resolutions were adopted at the
\\HKRKAS, The board has rejected each and
ah of the bids opened by it September 24, A. L>.
lhwi, for the construction of the mam university
building for the reasons: First that each of
said bids is conditional in respect to the letting
of the contracts ior the labor and material to
gether to one and the same bidder; and, second,
that each of said bids is by tbe board deemed
too high; and,
WHEKKAS, The board is satisfied, after con
sul ation with the architect, that it will be im
practicable to obtain upoi; an advertisement
(or like bids, an absolute, unconditional bid by
responsible contractors for the labor senaratelv,
ana for the materials separately, for said build
ing; and is farther satisfied that, if BUT such
bids were obtained, they would be at figures too
high for the work, by reason of such separation
of the bids; and,
WHERKAS, The board is satisfied, after careful
consideration of the subject with the architect,
that said building can be erected by the board,
under the immediate control and management
of the architect and superintendent 01 conduc
tion, William E. Boone, at a large saving oi
money to the state, and with a greufcr assurance
oi good and substantial wrk, by the board's
purchasing all the material thereof and employ
ing the uecessary labor in the construction
thereof; therefore. •'
Retolved , That this board shall not advertise
again for separate bids tor the labor and separ
ate bids for the materials for the whole build
ing, but instead thereof shall immediately ad
vertise for bids for all the stone, concrete stone,
sand, brick, cement and lime necessary tor said
building; and shall, upon procuring satisfactory
bids for the same, purchnse said materials and
proceed immediately with the construction of
said building, under the direct management of
said architect and superintendent oi construc
tion; and be it further
Ruolred, That invitations for proposals to fur
nish said stone, concrete stoue, brick, sand,
cement and lime shall be immediately pub
lished for four weeks consecutively in the Seat
tie Teltgrayh, the Tacoma Sew*, the Spokane Re
view ana the Walla Wall a Union-Journal, and
that the date of opening all such proj-osals shall
be 1 o clock p. m. on Thursday, the 29th day of
October, A. D. 1891.
Architect W. E. Boone says that the labor on
the building will employ 100 men for eighteen
mouths. Probably a good two years will be re
quired to finish the construction. The Seattle,
Lake Shore & Eastern railway, which runs
through the new university grounds, will ptit in
a spur track for unloading the materials that
will be required. As far as possible only Wash
ington materials will be put into the building.
Contracts for furnishing the stone will be let as
soon as possible.
The board will hold Its next meeting next
Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock.
