After instructing the Jury as to what
they should look into Judge Benson cau

Judge Benson also explained that the
law enjoined secrecy to the extent that
all matters coming to their knowledge as
a grand Jury should remain s*-ui<*d within
their breasts. He warned them not'todis
i iirts the fact that an indictment had been
found against any person for felony who
was not in custody or under recognizance,
until such a person be arrested. lb
iurtte r told the Jury that notn* of their
numb- r would be allowed to state how he
or another voted on any matter and that
It to«)k the Vote of at bast twelve of their
num;*T to find an indictment.
Judge Benson instructed the Jurors th.it
if a witmss Mwort falsely before them
that they should Indict him forthwith for
perjury, tirst takit g the advice of the
prowcutor as to its being an actual case
of perjury. The Jury was further charged
to bring an indictment against any one
who attempted to corruptly or Improperly
influence their action. The Jurors was
further instructed that they must he pres
ent at all of the sessions of the jury; that
the special prose utors would draw up
the proper papers for th.< foreman to sign
In case u conclusion is reached; that
when a bill of indictment is Ignored they
arc to find whether the prosecution is
malicious or frivolous and whether the
complainant or the county shall pay the

to de» ;• water. This property is practical
ly in the heart of th • city and is worth sev
eral hundred thousand dollars, as tilings
are going at present.
Five or six yeai ago Hopkins owned the
property on which th> S. A. building is
located and the other iots enumerated. At
tha: tiru* John Parkinson was a prominent
architect In Seattle. Parkinson desired to
put base and improve this property. He
made a contract with Hopkins f u r the
property, by which he (Parkinson) was to
pu: a bri.-k building, to cost not less than
PJu.xnt on lot T. fronting on First it venue,
and to give Hopkins back a mortgage for
W1.a02.ir.. This mortgage was to be a first
mortgage on ail the property, except lots 7
ar.d s. Parkinson was to have the privilege
of mortgaging lots 7 and S In order to raise
monej to buiid a brick block on lot 7. This
bio k is now known as the S. A. C. build
Hopkins' mortgage was not only to be a
first mortgage on all lots except 7 and S,
but was to be a second mortgage on kits 7
and v Hopkins ac ordlngly made a deed
of the property to Parkinson and Parkin
son gav. a mortgage back to Hopkins.
1 totH instruments with a bond that Park
inson would put lip the brick building as
agreed, were put iu escrow in the National
Hank of Commerce.
A month later Parkinson, having made
arrang. ments to borrow PmJ.OOO from Hai
four, Guthrie & Co., had a mortgage pre
pared covering wll the property and ig
noring Hopkins' mortgage. Hopkins'
deed was taken out of escrow without
his knowledge and recorded. The mort
gage to Halfour, Ciuthrie &. Co. waa r<-
corded at the «ame time.
The first notice Hopkins had of this
was several days later, when he saw an
Item in a newspaper concerning the deed
and mortgage. As soon as Hopkins
found out what had be*n done he pro
j tested, and notified Halfour, Guthrie &
j t'o. that his mortgage was entitled to be
j a first lien on all the property, except lots
■ 7 and >. At the time of this notice front
Hopkins, Halfour. Guthrie & Co. had put
up only of the and It was
in the National Hank of Commerce with
iln th» r reach. Hut they paid no atten
tion to Hopkins' claim, and insisted that
they should claim a first lien on the prop
. erty, and continued to advance money t<j
Parkitis n until the entire KM, <WO had been
j raid In.
Th" came into court through the
effort of Halfour, Guthrie & Co. to fore
close th« :r mortgage. Parkinson ami
Hopkins were named as defendants. At
torney Harold Preston appear.nl for the
complainants and Judge Thomas ISurke

ln-al fraternity and business men. The

lnt»r->. a!.-o tended to make it a fa

The doubt hitherto existing ns to wheth
er criminal cases arising in what Is Known
an the north half of the Colville Intlian
res. rvation. in this state, came under Fed
etal or state jurisdiction, wan settled yes
terday afternoon by Judge Hanford in the
Federal court. He :uld that the land in
volved had been restored to the public do
in.tin, thereby becoming part of Stevens
county, and that the Federal authorities
had no more authority within its confines
than they did in any other part of the
The decision Is of gnat importance to
Stevens county, as ::o later than last No
vember the department of the interior no
tified the county officials that the north
half of the reservation was still a reserva
tion, notwithstanding the fuct that it wa>
open to mineral entry, and that they had
no right to assume control over it.
Under Judge Hanford's deck-ion it would
naturally follow that Stevens county can
now proceed to extend county roads and
do other work In the nature of public im
provem< nts. The north half of the Col
ville reservation now being acknowledged
t J be under the control of Stevens county
adds a territory to the county almost as
as that portion of land hitht rto rec
ognized as Stevens county.
Up to the present time the Federal au
thorities. through an Indian agent and In
dian police, have assumed to exercise au
thority in the disputed territory. So it was
that when A. Mlshel, a full-blooded Indian.
w.i> accused of assaulting another Indian
named Whil Ochen. in th<> north half of
the Colville reservation last December, a
warrant was sworn out for hl.s urrest be
fore United States Commissioner Marshall
in Spokane. The technical charge was as
sault with intent to commit murder. Mishel
w is arrested and taken before Commis
sioner Marshall, who held that he had jur
isdiction. Mishel was remanded to jail to
await the action of the Federal Jury, which
will meet next spring.
A short time ago Mishel'* friends placed
the case in the hands of F. C. Robertson,
formerly assistant United States district
attorney. Mr. Robertson is now resid
ing in Spokane. He looked up the law
and became convinced that the Federal
authorities had no more right ti» exercisa
authority in criminal cases in the not!
haif of what is known as the Colvlll
Indian reservation than they did in othei
parts of the state. If his position wis
correct, it then followed that the au
thorities of Stevens county were the
proper persons to proceed in criminal
Yesterday afternoon Mr. Robertson went
before Judge Hanford in the Federal
court in this city and applied for a writ
of habeas corpus for the release of
Mishel. He argued the case at length,
tracing the course of events since con
gr<--- in July. IW, opened the north half
of the reservation to mineral entry, but
withheld the right to make homestead
entry. He spoke of the cas-> of Collier
vs. Halib. wherein the Federal court held
that a settler could not be removed from
the land in question. He argued that
the land had been restored to the public
domain, and that being the case, it did
not remain as a reservation, and the Fed
eral authorities had no more jurisdiction
than in any other part of the state.
Jud»re Hanford decided that the Fnited
States commissioner who had held Mishel
to await tho action of the grand jury
exceeded his authority. He ordered that
Mishel be turned over to the shi riff of
Stevens count}' on demsnd. but if the de
mand wis not made within live days,
then Mishel should be given bis liberty
under the writ of habeas corpus.
.Attorney Robertson was «e. n by a Post-
Inteillgencer reporter last evening a short
time in-fore he left for Part Townsend.
