THE chain gang system, under which

Every able-bodied prisoner committed to
the cltv Jail must work; otherwise he does
not eat. Each night after the prisoners
are brought In from their dally toll they

J. H6MER BIRD CONVICTED.
Alaska Homioide Found Guilty of
Mnrder at Jnneau.

Moat Sensational Trial InHtstory of

oaer Unmoved by Tor diet, bat
Breaks Dowa Ipon Meeting Hie
Wife, Whom Re Had Deserted
for Aaother la New Orleans.
The sensational trial ot J. Homer Bird,
of New Orleans, charged with the foul
murder of his two mining partners, J. H.
Herllng and R. H. Patterson, on the Yu
kon, eighty-five miles above Anvil, over
a year ago, has terminated In a convic
tion of the accused. The trial was had at
Juneau before Judge Johnson, ot the Uni
ted States district court The Jury re
turned a verdict of guilty, Tuesday night,
Bird heard the verdict with stolid Indif
ference. He betrayed not ihe slightest
emotion. Throughout the long trial, which
aroused extraordinary interest In Juneau,
the prisoner maintained an outward display
of almost'unparalleled coolnese. He Is re
ported, however, to have broken down
completely on meeting his faithful wife,
when she, accompanied by their child,
visited him IQ his cell after the announce
ment ot the verdict. The meeting Is said
to have been most pathetic.
Though Rlrd had to all intents and pur
poses deserted his wife for a woman nam
ed Noma Strong, upon whose testimony,
mainly, he was convicted, the wronged but
faithful wife followed from New Orleans
to Juneau, where she was In attendance
on the trial from the day of Its beginning.
Jealousy of the Strong woman and a
quarrel with his partners regarding a di
vision of their outfit and other property is
supposed to have led to the murder. The
evidence tended to show that a thlry part
ner, Charles Sheffler, had supplanted Bird
In the affections of the woman.
Sheffler was also a witness against the
accused. He. too, it Is said, narrowly es
caped being murdered by Bird.

She claims to have a good defense, but
the very men who have advocated rebel
lion the loudest, It Is said, are the first to
obey the command.
Once since the chain gang was organized
there was a refusal on the part of the
prisoners to work whereupon I'orbett drew
a "blackjack," which he carries, and bold
ly attacked the crowd, distributing blows
right and left. The prisoners changed
their minds and concluded to go to work.
The first week after the establishment of
the system the prisoners were kept at work
around the city hall and jail, sawing wood
and cleaning up the yard. This week,
however, they have been at work cleaning
the mud off the Lake Union bridge. Each
night when they come In they have a be
draggled appearance, and many of them
have avowed their determination to leave

Trne Bills Against Eight of Business
Officers of the steamers City of Seattle

Kalem and Harry Eastman came out
over the new "cut-off" or overland trail,
recently established by the Canadian De
velopment Company, for the Dominion gov
ernment. They were the first travelers to
use the trail, coming this way, after Its
completion. This route, which saves about
160 miles of travel, Kalem says, Is compar
atively level for sixty-five miles, the rest of
It belnc rough and hilly. At stations alone
the route the constructing company, Kalem
say», is charging K a night for lodgings,
notwithstanding the agreement made with
the Dominion government, which, accord
ing to Kalem. was that the company should
not charge In excess of $1 per night for a
single bunk or bod.
At Selkirk Kalem and Eastman overtook
five Klondlkers with whom they traveled.
It was fortunate that the party was over
