How the bonds of the Columbia Uivef Oreh aids Company were sold and resold throughout the Pacific northwest, was described today by C. I.. F.urton, a witness ut the trial of A. J. Dlehl, charged with having used the mails to defraud. Burton said he became interested in the project of the com pany and bought some of Its bonds. When he found that they were worth less, he "unloaded them as fast as he could." Burton testified that other brokers bought and sold the bonds, in some cases paving- a few cents on the dol- ,,!..., (lar for them and anerwaiu them for as much as par. At the tune, he testified, when the bonds could be bought "by the bale" in Seattle for 50 cents on the $1,000, there were some "brokers and innocent pur chasers trading in them for prices as high as J800 on the $1,000." Following the testimony of Hurton, there was an Intimation from the federal district attorney's office that his evidence would be used as a basis for extensive prosecutions of brokers and bond dealers throughout the 1 a cific northwest. i .T. Wright, a Seattle attorney who formerly acted as counsel for W. K. di I.aini and Blehl, and who drew up some of the incorporation papers of the socalled de Uirm companies, testified that ho withdrew as their l.iwver when- they were arrested.

Mediation has advantages from the Turkish viewpoint. The tendency of such an arrangement always is in the direction of a compromise. In the second place, mediation would save tne 'tuiKiHn government's prestige In tne eyes oi the people by making It appear that Turkey concedes the sacrifice that she must inevitably make to the pressme of all Europe Instead of at tne men tion of the Balkan states. I'he first consideration, Irom the standpoint of the allies, is opposed to ; their interests. Such a solution as mediation offers would be of further disadvantage to them, In that certain powers Austria and Italy could not be considered as disinterested arbitra tors. The Turkish design in present ing counter proposals, wnicn leu an enormous gulf between them and the ullies' proposals, was to create a situ ation In which mediation wo'tild Hp pear Justifiable even necessary. Their argument is that never has a mediator given a verdict entirely fa vorable to one side, without compen sation to the other. And the capital argument remains that whatever Tur key would be forced to cede, her Mussulman population, particularly the semi-barbarous tribes of Arabia and Anatolia, would swJllow the bit ter pill with fewer gr'maces, if con vinced it was ndniinlsltred by a coali tion of Europe. In the cui,i of the allies the proposal for median. ' has been received with varying degi. , s of dissatisfaction. All are agreed that mediation would be possible of acceptance only If the authority, entrusted to the mediators, were of such limits that it would be impossible to deprive the Meters of ' rightful conquests: that It must be mediation taking into account the present status of the belligerents, not the ante-bellum status and thai It must he Uielliaiiou- tralloi:.

From the bench, Federal Ju.lgo An derson read in connection with sen tencing the men, a statement in which he said: "The evidence shows some of these defendants to be guilty of murder."

' An elaborate, but apparently prac tical plan of endorsing selected ones of the many applicants for appoint , ment to federal office In the state, was yesterday adoted by the state executive committee of the democra tic party In session here, Felix Mar tinez, of Colfax county, was endorsed for appointment as ambassador to Mexico, and A. A. Jones, of East Uia Vegas, was endorsed for appointment as secretary of the Interior. These endorsements were so made as to eventually place them before the president', If all goes i(s expected, In the light of strictly party measures. The patronage distribution plan contemplate the endorsement of the dllfeteiit applications by the statu chairman, the slate member of tho democratic national committee and Ihu congressman. , To reach this trio of party leaders, however, each application must go through a series of hands. The reso lution embodying this plan Is quite lengthy, but 11 develops each step logically and carefully and tho Plan has c very appearance of practicabil ity. The plan Is essentially uu fol lows: The executive committee, through the' slate committeeman from each county, will Invite the county central committee to recommend for ap pointment to the federal office such men aa it deems proper, taking Into consideration first; those offices pri marily arising in that county; and second, offices not Included In tho ilrst category. The state committee man will have the light to make rec ommendations of his own and send them In with the rest. Thesa recom mendations will be mado to the Mats central committee. The state central committee, without meeting to pass upon inch application will Puss " each application to tho execu tive committee.
