CAW GALLAGHER'S VABfANCIES Witness Admits That His Mem ory Was Previously at Fault W HE SAW SPRECKLES He Did Not Want to Be the Last to Flee From Wrath to Come-The Daily Tilt Between Heney and the Counsel For the Defense. San Francisco. April 22. Picking his way carefully between the pitfalls of a grueling cross-examination, James L. Gallagher, chief witness tor the prosecution in the trial of Patrick Cal houn, finished the second day of his trying ordeal with a circumstantial narration of the arrangements whereby he and sixteen other supervisors of the gchmitz board -of supervisors es caped punishment for accepting the bribes paid them by Abraham RueJ. Gallagher displayed more emotion than ha J been noted in any of thiten inquisitfbns previously held, and it was evident the questions of A. A. Moore, who is conducting the cross-examination on behalf of the defense, had seri ously disturbed the complacency with which he has heretofore guarded him self in. his appearances upon the witness-stand. The subject of immunity granted the former supervisors, always a topic pro durtive of trouble, was under discus sion, an J Gallagher was being asked to describe the conditions that preced ed his interview with Rudolph Sprecck els in the presidio military reserva- tion. where, as chairman of the board, he obtained the assurance that he and his colleagues should escape punish ment. "You surely did not go there on a mere suggestion, with intent to con fess your participation in a multiplic ity of crimes?" asked Moore. '"I confessed to nr crimes at that time." replied Gallagher.

I had reason to believe that Supervisors Lonergan and Walsh had already made confessions and that Box ton had done so, or was about to con fess. II. M. Owens, who represented myself anj other membe rs of the board, told me that Boxton was cer tain to be convicted of bribery unless he made a statement." "Did Spreckels tell you that he had been engaged, with Heney, in this civic righteousness all his life, and that they were actuated by the love of munici pal purity, or love of God, as it were?" asked Moore. At this point Heney arose to object, saying: "I do not think that any case of this serious character, wherein a man is being tried to establish whether or not he is above the law, calls for buffoonery of this character. Moore's sole purpose is to cast ridicule upon these men who felt called upon to save their city from the corruption that ev ery citizen knows was rampant." The cross-examiner was reprimanded by the court for propounding such a ques tion, and the examination proceeded. The greater part of the day was de voted to a comparison of the testimony given by Gallagher on direct examina tion with his statements in previous trials. The defense contended, nt every disputed point, that they were able to show serious and vital discrepancies in his acccounts of how the various members of the Schmitz board were bribed. Gallagher admitted his ac counts of the matter were at variance, but he explained that his memory was at fault when he testified in the trials to which counsel made reference. THE LITTLE WHITE JUDGE ' HONORED IN DEATH The Funeral of Police Judge Austin, of Los Angeles. Los Angeles, Cal., April 22. The funeral of Police Judge II. C. Austin, who died Tuesday afternoon, was held this afternoon at 3:30 o'clock from the residence, 2.1 IS South Figuero street. Rev. J. P.

Judge Austin, known as "the little white judge" had been on the police bench of Los Angeles for the past twenty-six years. Health failing him, he was compelled to give up his of fice two months ago. He was a native of Plymouth, Mass. where he was born seventy-three years ago. When thp civil war broke out he became war correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.

THE CRISIS 0 Surrender of the Sultan te the Young Turks L There Will Be No Bloodshed I n Constantinople but There Is Danger of Massa cre and Religious War In the Asiatic Dominions. Constantinople, Aptfl 22. The young Turks .have won another victory over Sultan Abdul Hamid. The sultan will remain as sovereign, but he will place the affairs of the government entirely in the hands of ministers re sponsible to parliament. Tewfik Pasha, grand vizier, arranged a gom promise' with the chiefs of the consti tutional party, and this has been confirmed by the sultan personally to several of the constitutionalists, who with the utmost privacy were intro duced into the Yildiz Kiosk tonight. The sultan also has agreed to a change in the personnel of the troops guarding the palace and to replace the Constantinople garrison, with troops from the corps that has been investing the city for four days. The public will scarcely be aware of the change and it is certain it will be accomplished without violence. For the present there need be lit tle fear of bloodshed within the city, but there Is much to be feared from the riots and massacres that now are sweeping over the districts under Turkish domination. Fuver priests are seen on the streets. Many of them have left the city for Asia, threatening, to arouse the country and return with the faithful to rescue the grand caliph and save the religion from the unbelievers. Newspaper extras tonight announc ed that the crisis was past, and this caused general relief. Politics were discussed freely in the cafes, but the sultan was rarely mentioned. The reckless talk of a few nights ago about the sovereign was not heard. A correspondent drove to the Yildiz Kiosk, which so far as could be seen from the approaches, appeared to be unoccupied. Not a sentinel or soldier was in sight, even at the main gates. The fleet sailed this afternoon for the Mediterraenean, ostensibly for maneuvers, but really as a guaranty that the investing army would not be opposed. The sultan, or those acting in his behalf, has supplied the con stitutionalists with a list of the prin cipal members'of the palace group, who brought about the events of the past week. Jt is understood that there will he no reprisals, except in the case of the palace officials im plicated. The members of the cab inet today offered their resignations to the grand vizier, but he declined them. The chamber of deputies and some senator? met today at San Stefano, and are now discussing this question of desposing the sultan. THE ADANA MASSACRE. Adana, April 22. The immediate pretext for the disorders here was the shooting, by an Armenian, of three Turks, one of whom died April 10. The fololwirg evening a Moslem crowd beat the Armenian to death. Uneasiness Increased among the Ar menians and several of the most prominent urgently demanded that the governor preserve order. On the morning of the 14th the situation be came critical., The Armenians re peated their demand to the governor and he gave ' assurance that there would be no disturbances, whereupon the leaders of both sides went through the streets urging shopkeep ers to re-open their places of busi ness. At noon, however, Moslem crowds armed with club, filled the market places and the streets and soon the massarce began with looting and burning of shops and houses. The reign of terror continued for three days. Two American mission Rmrnn Bnd Maurer. were killed early in the fighting. The British J vice consul was wounuea wnne riaing through the streets attempting to re store order. It was not until the aft ernoon of April 18 that the govern ment offered protection. Troops were sent out to patrol tne streets anu guards were posted, but order was restored slowly. During the night, j conflagrations threatened the entire '. city and much destruction was wrought. Thousands of Armenians were killed and thousands are home less, penniless and starving. The de vastation in the outskirts of the city was inconceivable. -o PRAYER OF THE PAPERS Cam fina4i Ar-flUlAAMincA Ifl th House Rate on Pulp and Print ! Paper. n-c.

NEWELL AND HILL IM PRESSED BY PARKER'S SURROUNDINGS. Their Return Last Night From a Hur ried Inspection of Colorado Country. Frederick H. Newell, director of the United States reclamation service and Kngineer L. C. Hill, who accompanied Mr. F. M. Murphy and party to Parker, returned last night. Mr. Newell and Mr. Hill were both very much Impress ed by the irrigation opportunities which were spread out before them. On arriving at Parker the party took teams from Messrs. Drennan and Cur tis who accompanied them xtl the tour of the surrounding country; the mem bers of the party being Messrs. New ell, Hill, Murphy, Cruice, Drake and Dr. G. W. Vickers. They first visited the beautiful valley of more than 200, 000 acres which lies below the town of Parker waiting only for the touch of water which flows by and to waste. In abundance, to make it one of the most productive regions on earth. The visitors then drove back up the rivertto the rock head, the monument of a half carried out and abandoned Irrigation enterprise of long ago. After that the party returned to town and was shown what had been accomplish ed in the few months since the begin ning. Mr. Murphy expressed the be lief that Parker with the agricultural possibilities and the mining certainties which surround it. is destined to be come a great town. On the return to Phoenix, the party was joined at Bouse by O. Longacre who had gone out to inspect the Little Butte mine. He was shown every cour tesy by the management and in the brief time at his disposal he formed a favorable impression of the prop erty. Messrs. Murphy. Drake, Cruice and Longacre left last night for Prescott, where Mr. Murphy has an Important meeting today with Consulting Engi neer Dwight, who has come out from New York to inspect the needs of the Humboldt smelter, which it is thought will be in operation within sixty days.

Ft. Smith, April 22. Chancery Judge J. VT Boulard issued an order in court here yesterday that probably Is without precedent. In . appointing R. A. Young receiver for the Hia watha Smokeless Coal company at Coal dale, Ark., he ordered fhat the receiver employ none but union men in the mine or sell it.

A FRIENDLY FEELING In the Negotiations For a Settlement of Anthracite Differences. Philadelphia, April 22. The confer ence between National President Lewis, of the United Mine Workers, and the three anthracite district pres idents of the miners' union and the representatives of coal operators which began yesterday in the Reading ter minal building here, ended at" noon to day with a better feeling all around. Prospects for 'an early settlement of labor troubles continue to grow brighter. THE FLIGHT OF PATTEN Leftjlhe Bulls of the at the Mercy Bears COLLAPSE OF THE CORNER The Wheat King Howerer Had Taken Care of Him self Getting Out Before the Break Occurred-Resting In New Mexico Now. Chicago, April 22. That James Pat ten, hailed throughout the country as the wheat king, has withdrawn from the market after disposing of his heavy holdings of May and July wheat, was asserted In many quarters here today. To this assertion was ad ded the fact that prices have tumbled over nine cents during the last week, and Mr. Patten has sought rest on a New Mexico ranch. The session of the board of trade was sensational today. The bulls ex pected that after the six cent decline of the two previous sessions a recov ery would ensue. Taking the Patten viaw of the shortage as correct, and that wheat was intrinsically worth the price that has been paid for it in a purely speculative way, the reac tion was due, but the first quotations were a startling disappointment to the bulls. From nearly every point came re port of normal or even better crop prospects. Liverpool prices were down and the shipments from Argentine, Australia and other foreign countries were said to be greater than usual a', this time of the year. Bears filled the wheat pit in a dense mass and poured forth a swollen stream of wheat. The longs liquidated all along the line, and the execution of stop loss orders added to the confusion. Frequently It was impossible to make a sale within three-quarters of a cent of the price designated by a customer. While Patten, quoted as saying he was fleeing from the reporters, he was making for the ranch of his friend and partner, W. H. Bartlett, of New Mexico, dejection was pic tured upon the faces of many small speculators haunting the tickers. ' Many a fortune has been wiped out by the decline this week, and many a man who had a handsome profit on paper, but still hung on for more, now confronts a deficit. The regular daily bulletin Issued by Bart lett, Patten & Company after t he close of the market, said: "The real condition is unchanged. There Is no more wheat in the country than, there was before the decline. Our confidence in a high price is as great as ever." CUT OFF FROM COMMUNICATION Trinidad, April 22. Jas. A. Patten arrived at Vermijo Park, N. At., the ranch of W. H. Bartlett, his partner, tonight, after a drive of seventy-five miles through a mounta:n oiizzard that has raged for twenty-four hcu.'s. Vermijo Park, which is sixty miles west of Trinidad, is twenty-five miles from a railroad or telegraph station, and the servants of the ranch were instructed tonight not to repry to the telephone, the sole means of communication between Vermijo and the outside world. , A HURRIED CALL.

BENSON Government Not Allowed to Introduce the Alleged Bribe-Money. Washington, April 22. In the trial today of John R. Benson of San Francisco, charged with having bribed Woodford D. Harlan and William E. Valk, formerly of the ' general land office, to reveal the contents of a secret report of government agents in connection with western land trans actions, Justice Gould refused to ad mit in evidence the money which the government alleged had been paid by Benson to Valk. The court's ruling, will preclude a conviction upon one count of the indictment, charging bribery of one or two clerks said to have been bought up by the defend ant. William J. Bums, prominently iden tified with the San Francisco graft cases was a witness. The only evi dence allowed was his corroboration of Harlan's statement to Benson ask ing him to come to Washington. o TWO IN A DAY. Crushed to Death in Mine. California Chinese Camp, CaL, April 22.

NO RATE LAW THE SEA A Decision In the Japanese Case' THE COMMISSION'S RULE Stops With the Shore, but the. Order Holds That the Southern Pacific Was at Fault In Making a Reduc tion Below the Joint Rate. San Francisco. April 22. Interstate commerce regulations do not apply to ocean carriers operating to for eign countries, according to opinions handed down today by United States District Judge De Haven in the Japanese matting cases involving the Southern Pacific railroad and the Pa cific Mail Steamship company. s The court sustained the demurrers to an Indictment charging rebating so far as the steamship company was concerned, but held that an- infrac tion of the federal laws was clearly stated with reference to the railroad. The indictments charge that a re bate was paid to the defendant cor porations on a shipment of matting from Kobe, Japan, direct to Spring field, Ohio. It is charged in the in dictment that the reduction was met by the defendant company, which took the business at less than a legal quotation. Judge DeHaven held that the steamship company was privileged to do as it saw fit in making and re making itu rates,, but .that the joint rate was legal rate so far as the railroad- was concerned, and the latT ter placed uself In peril by viola tions oi the laws such as are set forth In the indictment which was declared sufficient. THE HAINS' DEFENSE A DIVIDED CAMP Flushing. April 22. A commotion was -caused in the camp of the de fense today at the trial of Capt. Peter C. Hains. It came from a declaration by Dr. L. S. Manson, an alienist retained by the defense, who declared that in his opinion Capt. Hains was not insane at present, and that the defense did not intend to raise such an issue, but would rest with the proof that the defendant was insane at the time of the shoot ing. The physician was seVereiy cen sured by Hains' lawyers for express ing this opinion, and afterward de nied, in part, having made the state ment credited to him. John F. Mclntyre, chief counsel for the defense, admitted that two of their alienists believed the prisoner was now sane, but said he did not agree with . them.
