Nordstrom Jury Deliberates for
Twenty-four Hours.
gftU. the Negro Wife-Killer, m* the Bar
—Electric Street Railway Sued for
Damages— The Blotter.
The }nry in the case of Charles W. Nordstrom,
efcargt-d with tbe murder of William Mason at
Cedar Mountain, brought in a verdict of guilty
e{ murder In tho first degree at 5 o'clock yester
day sfternoon, after baring been out a little
«m twenty-four hours. During that time the
jorors bad no sleep, and were & weary looking
set as they filed into the court-room.
When their verdict was read and they had ex
pressed their approval of ita correctness, N. bo
tsrberg, attorney for Nordstrom, asked that tbe
jory be polled. At the direction of the court
HM prisoner stood up facing the jury. Then,
by one, their names were called off by the
elsrk, each man rising in turn to reply to tho
question, "Is this your verdict?" Each man
answered affirmatively.
The scene was a dramatic one, as the prisoner
Stood and watched each one of the twelve in
tarn (peak bis judgment, which was the fore
runner of a death sentence, yet he gave no evi
dence that he appreciated the gravity of the slt
astioci. He gave no st .'n of emotion, preserving
0» same stolid indifference that he has worn
fhiOQghout the triaL
Mr. Soderberg gave notice of his intention to
■eve tor a new trial, and at hi* request the
eoort ordered a transcript of tbe evidence to be
prepared by the steuograpber.
Ivans, the Negro Miner, Brought Be
fore a Jnry Yesterday.
Tbe trial of Jame* Q. Evans, the negro miner,
loi tbe murder of his wife at Franklin in De
cember, was begun yesterday before Judge
Barnes. The prisoner is a powerful, coal black
Itgro, whose face shows but few signs of in
telligence and yet is not that of a criminal. He
watched closely the proceedings in the selection
•Ujury, which occupied nearly all of the afier
toon, and occasionally whispered a suggestion
to bis lawyer. The attorney is himself a young
•olored man, Allen A. Garner by name.
Alter both prosecution and defense had ex
hausted their peremptory challenges the follow
loglUtof twelve jurymen was cuosen: J. 1L
Moore, E l Piummer, J. E. Carney, A. J. Ed

W. L Lindsley, A. Thnrlow, L. M. Garrlsou
James W. fcmart, George 11. Gross. ,
Deputy Prosecuting Attorney A. G. Mcßride
Bade the opening statement for the state. He
vas followed by Evans' attorney, who in his
address outlined the plan of deiense, with a
gsoeral synopsis of the evidence to be intro
duced. He told the story of the shooting, with
the events leading up to It, aa it would be pre
sented by the defence. Evans, be aaid, had gone
to Newcastle from British Columbia, where he
bad been with his wife. She was to follow him
to Newcastle, but instead she went to Franklin,
and was there living with a colored miner
aamed Jackson. Evan* went to Franklin to
persuade his wlie to leavo Jackson, and found
tar there In company with him. The husband
was very fond of his wife, and his feelings so
overcame him that ha became temporarily in
taoeand while in that condition committed the
elimination of Matters Covered by the
New State Rulea.
Special rules of practice, prepared by a com
mittee of attorneys to amend the rulea now in
nse in the superior court of King county, have
been adopted and will go into effect on next
Monday, January 18. The rulea of practice
which have existed heretofore In this court are
twenty-five In number. These cover considera
ble of the ground now covered by the general
roles for all superior courts adopted at the state
convention of judges and lawyers recently held
In this city. One important change to be
brought about under the new set of rulea is the
v.. elimlnation of considerable matter that is in
©orporated in the state rules.
Ferhai* the change of most importance is the
lule concerning the transferring of civil cases
from tbe civil department to the criminal depart-
Bent for trial.
Hitherto when the Judga of tbe civil depart-
Bent could not hear certain cases already set for
trial these cases were sent to the judge of the
Criminal department to be heard by him. Cu
ter the new arrangement tbe judge of the clvtl
department will set out a number of cases
Which he will not be able to handle. Theee will
be transferred to the criminal department, and
there set for trial by the judge of that dopart-
The bar of King county has gradually drifted

Ha Sollclta Charity by Writing Bogus
Letters About Himself.
Charitable people wilt do well to beware of a
young man, hardly more than a boy, who Is
working the sympathy dodge with more or leas
success, and who, besides being a skillful and
versatile liar and bunko man, ha* all the ear
marks of a dangerous criminal.
The young man's name is not known. One of
his many aliases is Steveu A. Lafferty, and an
other is Fred Stevens. He appears to be about
18 years old, but may be older. Ho is rather tail
and has rounding shoulders. His face is oval
and hia bronr is narrow and retreating.
He is fairly well dressed, but his ahirt front ia
anything but cleau, aud his necktie shows
a constant tendency to ride his collar. His
most marked peculiarity is a hesitation in
speech, which at times becomes painfuL When
asked loading questions about his past life he
stammers aud stutters. His memory also fails
him ou such occasions. He writes a beautiful
business college hand aud cau change bis stylo
of penmanship with great facility. Therein
lies his power for evil.
The young swindler first appeared at police
headquarters about a week ago. He gave Chief
Rogers a letter of introduction from somo per
son unknown to the chief, in which it was
stated that the young man'a father and mother
had died in San Francisco a few days before
aud that he had come hero to get work, but was
destitute. The chief was asked to assist him.
The boy told the chief he had beeu mess by ou a
man-of-war. Ho was locked up by Chief Rogers,
who sized him up as a swindler, and was kept
lu jail two days. The day he was released he
appeared at Grace hospital, where he presented
the following letter:
Superintendent Grace Hospital— Dtar Sir:
Pardon my addressing you, but beg to ask you
can you ndrnit this boy into your institution for
afewdavs? I found him ou tbe street at au
early hour this morning, wauderiug up and
down, and when 1 spoke to him he told me the
following: lie came hero from Chicago
Friday morning in search of bis brother,
but when he got here he found out
his brother was drowued. H:s parents died at
his home in Chicago a little over two weeks ago,
and he has nowhere to go aud has no money,
lie seems to hare goue through a great deal
lately ard Is going to work in a store next
Thursdav, aud he has no place to aiay until
then, ibope you will take pity on the lad for
he deserves it, aud oblige.
Machinist, Blake & Graves (Night Shift).
Superintendent Tremaine, in the kindness of
bis heart, took the young man in. At the ex
piratton of twenty-four hours he was asked to
sweep out one of the wards. He took the broom
and UTat was the la»t seen of him there.
Xthj young swindler had similar letters to
•(Take sympathy in several quarters. Thd sig
natures in each case were different, but each
man signed himself an engineer for some firm,
the name of winch does not appear in the direc
tory. Last evening he called at the Post-Intel
ligenckr editorial rooms. Ha had this letter of
don me in addresiiug you, but 1 beg to ask you
if you can g-ve tuts boy a position oi any k.nd.
I found him in the street at an early hour this

approached him, spoke to h m aud finally
eUcited t'se following story from him: He had
been living with botn his parents in Chicago.
Thev botli died there about two weeks two of
tvptioid fever. He came here expecting to find
his brother, but on inquiry found that he had
t*sen drowned a few day# before he came.
Ttie boy seems to have the worst of misfortune,
having had his tr iuk stolen while changing
cars at spoktme. He is entirely without funds,
and has nowhere to stay. His case ought to ex
cite pitv in any one who calls himself a man. I
offered him money, but he fiat.v refused it, say

When asked his name the young man was

of paper wrote the auswer in a beantifui round

called to the fact that no man named Lafferty
had been drowned here. To this he replied that

Monthly Report.
In the absence of President W. J. Colkett, J.
B. MarDougail presided at the meeting of the
board of education held last night, and Direct
ors T. W. Prosch, D. A. spencer, A. P. Burwell,
Superintendent F. H. Barnard, Secretary H. F.
W hitney and Architect John Parkinson were
The evening waa devoted to a discussion of
the question as to whether or not the salary of
the High school teachers, which had been re
duced irom $1,200 to 11,000, should be restored to
the old amount, and though the matter was de
ferred, it seemed to be the opinion of the board
that the or ginal aalary should be restored. The
janitors of the various schools were discussed at
length and were rather adversely criticized,
various month y reports were read and received
and the aecretary was authorized to draw the
requisite warrant* for the payment of audited
Alice U. Miller and Ella J. Caughey sent in a
communication asking that the action of the
board relating to the reduction of the salaries of
assistant lady teachers in the High school from
$1,200 to SI,OOO be reconsidered. They stated
that they did tbe same work as men and could
see no reason why there should b« any differ
ence in pay.
Mr. Spencer said that he believed in paying
teachers well, but too much distinction waa
given to what were called able teachers. With
all due deference to the teachers in the High
school, he felt that there were many in the
grammar schools who could do quite as well.
Superintendent Barnard was asked was this
so. He replied that there were perhaps some
who could, but they require higher salaries
than gra:nmar school teachers. He said that
high school teachers spent large sums of money
to fit themselves* for their work and that they
ought to receive good and sufficient salaries.
Mr. Prosch said that he did not see what harm
would result in letting tbe matter remain over
ai-other year; that he was in favor of keeping
the salary as it is, and that plenty of teachers
could be had at that salary.
Mr. Burwell said that he had said little on the
aubject, bat he felt that the salaries ought not
to be less than the work was worth. He seemed
to iavor restoring the old salary.
The matter was laid over (or consideration at
the next adjourned meeting.
The question as to who had authority over the
janitors of the school buildings aroused consid
erable discus doa. It was stated by Secretary
Whitney that this class of work was not as well
done as it bad been last year. One director
thought it would be a good idea to replace all
the janitori with new men. The secretary was
instructed to read the rules to the janitors,
which declare that they are under the control
of the principals, au 1 to report any neglect of
duty to the board at the next meeting.
The following communication, received by
Superintendent Bernard from Central school
teachers, was presented by him: i
We, as a corps, appreciate, among other Tali\
able "uggestions in your unnual report, that"

• To encourage the pupils and foster their
pride in the libraries I would suggest that a
certain sum be appropriated for each building
for Horary purposes, to be paid when the pufriiS
and teachers have raised au amount equal to"
one-half that appropriated by the board—li
braries purchased by pupils in the past to have
proper credit."
Setting aside the conditions of the last clause,
until the board sees fit to extend it taall the
other schools, we respectfully ask your con
sideration of the following:
First—That ail funds raised by pupils and
teachers of the Central for library, reading-room
and school organization be deposited with the
secretary of the board and be kuown aa the Cen
tral school fund.
Second—That for every dollar so deposited the
fund be credited with s:i
Third—That the secretary of the board honor
requisitions on the fund when sigued by the
superintendent, principal and teachers' and ail
purchases to remain the property of the Cantral
We would express our appreciation of your
efforts and the board's liberality and kindness
in furnishing supplementary aids, but there are
inmy improvements which we wish to make
that will have a silent, refining influence on our
pupils —little things whose value as educating
Influences far exceeds their cost, but which will
require more money than we can raise alone.

Conference of Ladies' Aid Committees
on Extension of Work.
A meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society of the
First Presbyterian church yesterday began a
movement for the extension of the work of
rescuiug fallen women, begun by Mrs. Noble
Mrs. Winnie Thomas appeared before the
society, over which Mrs. J. F. Trowbridge pre
■ided, and, in an able address, told of the work
that Mrs. Kyther had done in saving women
who had succumbed to sin, and of tbe necessity
which existed for added support to maintain
and increase the work. Mrs. Thomas said that
there were 3,500 fallen women in Seattle.
Mrs. Kyther's special fitness for the
labors which she has undertaken was
shown. Mrs. Thomas concluded her
address by saying that God worked through
human instrumentalities and thit it was nec
essary for the women to put their shoulders to
the wheel to save the erring, fehe said she
knew that many of the vicious were so steeped
in vice that they had no ambition to ba freed,
but among the thousands were many who
needed only a word, a smile of encouragement,
and such ought to be saved.
Mrs. J. C. McCuilough in reply said that Mrs.
Ryther bad ouca before ma le known that she
needed 12,500 with which to extend her
work, bui:d an addition to her house
and put in a lauudry, so ns to provide
the inmates with some work. She said,
however, that Mrs. Ryther did not wish to act
under the supervision of any one or any church,
and that the Ladies* Aid Society did not feel
like raising that money, but if Mrs. Ryther
wanted to make her work public and make of

After considerable discussion Mrs. Elliot W.
Brown moved the appointment of a committee
of three to invite similar committees of other
iadies' aid societ.es to confer upon the subject
and adopt a plan of procedure. The chair ap
pointed Mrs. J. C. McCullough, Mrs. Leander
Lodge and Mrs. David Myers. It is the wish of
the meeting that Mrs. Winnie Thomas assist in
the organization of the committees.
During the meeting it was suggested that the
building lately in use as a Day Nursery be se
cured for a home. A member of the board of
managers of that institution was seen after the
meeting, and aaid that the W. C. T. 0. would be
glad to rent the building for such a purpose.
The committee and Mrs. Taornas will get to
work at once.
Day Nursery Not in Condition to Care

The Central Woman's Christian Temperance

would like to place their children in the Day
Nursery, but could not pay, and that the soc.ety
in its present condition had not the means to

Mrs. i'arahurst, oue of the active members of
the Central W. C. T. U., is of the opinion that as
tho W. C. T. IT. is doing so mucn work of a
charitable character it ought to co-operate with
the associated charities.
The House of the Good Shepherd and the
Orphans* Home are in excellent condition, the
inmates of both institutions being well cared
for meutally and physically.
