BIZONA BEPUB GRQUCHY ON BOTH SIDES Displays ot III Feeling in the Trial of Calhoun HENEY DEFIED THE COURT He Had as a Witness a Ste nographer With a Quick Tongue and a Readiness to Volunteer Information Not Sought San Franzisco, Cal., June 2. A doz en witnesses who contributed diseon netted portions of the testimony pass til in review today before the jury in the case of Patrick Calhoun, president of the United Railroads. Virtually all of the testimony submitted was cor roborative or contradictor" of evidence already presented and it was appar ent that the case of the prosecution which was opened on April 15, is draw ing to a close. John H. Helms, formerly employed by the defense as a detective, identi fied a number of documents prevloury Introduced in evidence as reports stol en from the office of William J. Burns and incidentally precipitated the first of two angry conflicts that necessi tated the intervention of Judge Wil liam P. Lawlor. The first breach of decorum occur red when Helms testified that he had delivered to Calhoun copies of some stolen reports. Earl Rogers, attorney for the defendant intimated that the witness had committed perjury. Helms jumped to his feet, ignoring Judge Lawlor and the state's attorney, and defied Rogers to substantiate his charge and warning him not to re peat it. Before the wrangle was terminated kludge. La wlop threatened to--send to jail any attorney who addressed an in sulting Question or remark to a wit ness. Later in the day Heney declared himself willing to take a position an tagonistic to the court and accept the consequences resultant upon such an attitude. The impending storm blew over, but not until the prosecution had voiced his opinion of the treatment accorded some of the witnesses he had produced in court. Heney had called as a witness Miss Henrietta Harper a stenographer who transscribed certain documents for Helms while the latter was in the employ of the United Railroads. Heney was attempting to show that the work included some of the stolen reports, and asked: "Do you know Helms the gentleman with the light suit?" "Gentleman?" inquired the witness, with a rising inflection. "Well, we won't discuss that," said Heney. "Do vou draw a distinction between Helms and Abbott?" "A decided distinction," said Miss Harper. "So do- L" said Heney. and the sub . ject was dropped until Miss Harper, after appealing in vain to the court to uphold her refusal to testify on the ground that she was a guardian of confidential information, was asked: "Did you ever send Miss Doyle, one of your assistants, to Helms' office to do some work?" "I did send her on one occasion." said the w itness, "but I have never had any use for her services since." Heney took exception to this reply, informing Judge Lawlor that he would nc t proceed with the examination un less the witness was Instructed not to volunteer any information not called for in the question. It developed that Miss Harper was inclined to distrust Miss Boyle, after learning that her assistant had once Ik en a stenographer in the employ of W. J. Burns agent of the prosecution. It was at- this point that Heney was warned by the court to refrain from taking a belligerent attitude. Judge Lawlor finalh' ordered a record of the testimony road and the subject of the quarrel was eliminated by the dis covery that neither judge nor attor ney had grasped the full reply of the witness. Rogers of the defense, during the examination of Helms, reviewed every feature of the alleged affiliation of the witness with the Masonic order, and the resultant testimony was a primary education in the tenets of the order. In his furtrher investgation into the past of Helms, it developed that the witness had served In the American and British navies and armies, in the United States postal service as in spector and as a secret service agent. Heney added to the record state ments to the effect that Helms speaks seven languages; that he Is the recipi ent of a congressional medal for ex traordinary bravery and that he had been decorated by the czar of Russia. Raymond C. Shlndler. an agent of the district attorney's office was tell ing of his knowledge and connection with the reports alleged to have been stolen when the session ended for the day.

ARIZONA'S PLAGE III AGRICULTURE TERRITORY WILL BE IN THE FRONT RANK. Address of Professor McGee at University Last Night. tha Tucson. Ariz., June 2. (Special.) Prof. W. J. McGee, secretary of the national conservation commission and member of the board of governors of the national irrigation congress, was the principal speaker tonight at the university commencement exercises. In the course of his address Professor McGee devoted himself mainly to the agricultural possibilities of Arizona and he made a statement which he said would be received with surprise n som pjirts of the country. He said that it was now generally understood that Arizona was among ihe richest, if not the very richest of the m.neral regions of the United States. He would predict, though, that before long Arizona would be better known for its agricultural than for its mineral wealth and would become the richest agricultural region in the un ion. There was not of course, he said. such great unbroken areas of agricul tural lands as there are in some of the so-called agricultural states, but he said that the greater fertility of the soil here and the ability of it to pro duce so many crops a season would overcome the difference in area. o JAPANESE GIVE UP.

II MINORITY OBJECTION To Plan Id Facilitate Tariff Legislation STATE OF NO To Be Concealed by a Talka tive SenatorMr. La Toi lette Calls Attention to the Fact That Revision Means Revision Downward. Washington, June 2. With the adoption of a resolution providing for day and night sessions beginning to morrow, the senate heard today sug gestions of a policy for limiting dila tory motions which caused an earnest protest from Senator Bacon and oth ers. The vice president, basing his action t,pon a precedtnt made in the last congress when the Aldrich-Vree-land currency bill was under consid eration, held that the absence of a quorum could not be called to the attention of the senate if the senator occupying the floor declined to yield for that purpose. Mr. Bacon declared that this was one of the revolutionary rulings made when the currencyliH was under con sideration and that under it there would be a serious abuse of parlia mentary rules. He announced his intention to obtain a full considera tion of tills question by the introduc tion of a resolution to be considered by the committee on rules. A long speech dealing with the pledge of party leaders with respect to a revision of the tariff was be gtin by Mr. LaFollette and will be continued tomorrow. By numerous quotations - he maintained that no question could be raised as to the pledge of the party downward and declared that before he should con clude his speech he would demon strate that on the whole the pending bill placed the customs duties above the Dingley rates. Since the enact ment of the Dingley law until 1904, he said the control of the trusts had been extended to plants with a capital of more than twenty billion dollars. Mr. Nelson quoted numerous com parisons between the existing laws and the pending measure with the intention of showing that in the cot ton schedule rates had been raised from 20 to 50 per cent above the Dingley law by the substitution of specific for ad valorem duties. Mr. Gore quoted the dividends and surplus earnings of New England cotton and wool manufacturing com panies to sustain his contention that these corporations make large profits. o SPOILED BY RAIN In Other Leagues tha Schedules Were .

Street Car Strike Being Dragged Into Politics in Philadelphia. Philadelphia, Pa., June 2. An at tempt by the rapid transit company to run cars with non-union men resulted tonight In a number of serious riots. It was the first effort to operate lines at night and after several futile ef forts to get the cars through the mobs they were sent back to the barns. At least 100 men were more or less seri ously injured in rioting. In the Kensington district men, wo men and children pulled the motor men and conductors from their cars and beat them severely. In many in stances the cars were set on fire. The police were powerless to control the strike sympathizers. When they charged the mob separated only to form again in the vicinity of another car. Several policemen were injured. In West Philadelphia dynamite caps were plared on the tracks and crowds stoned the non-union workmen when they attempted to bring out the cars, forcing them to return to the barn. In the dpwn-town section conductors and motormen were pulled from the cars and their clothing torn off by mobs of strike sympathizers. In some cases the terrified men had to be taken to private houses and guarded by the police to save them from harm. The Central Labor Union has de termined to take advantage of the po litical features involved and tonight decided to issue a call upon all the members and sympathizers to cele brate next Saturday, which is primary election day here and "White Ribbon Day." The White Ribbon is an em blftm of .' le striking carmen. Their sympathizers are asked by the Central Labor Union to wear this emblem on election day and vote for D.

A CONFERENCE OF Excites European Diplomats to A Meeting in the Gulf of Fin land This Month Which It is Believed Will Contribute Much to Peace on the Con tinent. 1 St. Petersburg, June 2. A meeting between Emperor William and Em peror Nicholas has been arranged and will take place in the waters of the Finnish gulf. .The exact date is not yet settled but it probably will le on June 17. The German emperor will arrive on the imperial yacht Ho henzollern. Emperor Nicholas will be aboard the Standart, accompanied by M. Iswolsky, the foreign minister, and Admiral Voevodsky, minister of ma rine. News of the approaching interview between the sovereigns, coming so soon after the settlement of the Bal kan crisis, has aroused eager spec ulation among diplomats here. It was supposed in some quarters that Ger man mediation which had ended the crisis, had left a heritage of bitter ness that would estrange t.ie two monarchs and lead Russia to identify herseif more closely with Great Brit ain's continental policy. The meeting, which, according to some reports, has been arrangi on the initiative of Emperor Nicholas, is taken to mean that Russia prefers an amicable arrangement with Ger many to the doubtful issue of an antagonistic policy. If Emperor Wil liam meets President Fallieres also. as it is reported he will do, the Eu ropean situation may" he regarded as entering upon a decidedly peaceful phase. After meeting the kaiser, the czar will go to Stockholm, probably on June 26. Then he will return to J Peterhof and during the early days J of July and will receive King Fred jerick of Denmark.

Plans for this trip are held in the deepest secrecy, but elaborate prep arations already are being taken to prevent tampering with the railway lines to Poltva. Forty-eight thousand troops will be stationed along the route during the journey. The mili tary attaches of the various legations have been invited to accompany the czar. o CLEIISON'S STATEMENT AS TO FAMILY RELATIONS Alleged Wife Poisoner Said He and His Wife Went Separate Ways.

W QUEENS PROMOTERS Sentenced to a Year a Day and $500 Fine Spared the Imprisonment on Accounl of His Youth and the Bad Examples of His EldersJudge Snider's Absence from Arizona. Kansas City, Mo., June 2. (Spe cial.) Four of the promoters of the "Two Queens" gold mines in Arizona, Frank H. Horn. E. S. Horn, Raymond P. May and S. H. Snider, were sen tenced to one year and one day at hard labor in the federal prison at Leavenworth, and fined $500 and costs today in the federal court. John E. Horn, 22 years old, the youngest of the defendants, waa fined $500 and costs. All of the promoters except E. S. Horn were in court and were sen tenced this morning. E. S. Horn sent word that he was ill, but that he would appear this afternoon to take his punishment. At 2:25 o'clock he went to the federal court building in a motor car. Two men who accom panied him helped him into the build ing. He was taken to Judge Philips' private chambers and there sentenced. "The maximum fine for this offense is only $500," Judge Philips said to four of the promoters. "In viewing your whole case and considering the number of persons who were affected by your mining operations and the purposes of the law, it would be a travesty on justice to impose this fine. It is the order of the court that Frank H. Horn, Raymond P. May and Si. H.- Snider be imprisoned for one year and one day and that they pay a fine of $500 and costs. "And now as to John E. Horn, he is ony 22 years old; if he had had a better example from his older broth ers I believe that he would not now be in this trouble. He is not, how ever, to be excused for what he has done. He wrote a telegram to Mrs. Skaggs, a widow, and induced her to buy mining stock. He signed another man's name to his letters. However, on account of his youth I will not sentence him to prison. He shall pay a fine of $300 and costs." The case of the "Two Queens" pro moters was placed on trial in the federal court. May 10, and continued eight days. Circular letters, booklets and announcements sent through the mails by the promoters, were sub mitted to the jury and evidence was introduced to show that the repre sentations were not based on facts. About twenty purchasers of "Two Queens" stock from various parts of the United States testified. The trial of the case cost the government $2400. n BREWERS CONVENTION Rev. John H.
