Prices of j crude oil and petroleum products on the west coast are controlled by the Stand ard Oil company, the federal trade The last of the trials for this term of court before Judge Farrington took place today, winding up one of the busi est sessions ever held in this district. andi approximately 95 per cent of the cases were for violations of the federal dry law. The grand jury, which met early in October, brought in sixty-two indict ments, which included ninety-eight de fendants, for in several instances three, and in one case, four, were included in the indictment. On October 17th the trial jury was summoned with forty jurors; before the term ended fifty-five additional jurymen were summoned, and some of the originals from the first venire serv ed through the term to date. During the term twenty-six cases were tried for dry law violation before a jury. Of this number twenty-four were found guilty; there was one dis agreement and one acquittal, the lat ter including three defendants. In many of the twenty-six jury trials more than one defendant was included in the in dictment. Twenty-seven entered a plea of guilty and were either fined or sentenced1 to jail term or both. This, like the trial cases, commonly carried more than one defendant. There were two dismissals on ac count of faulty indictments or arrest warrants. It will be noted that the ac quittal of but two cases makes a rec ord for this term of court. Word received at the federal mar shal's' office indicates that the next grand jury for the January term will have as many, if not more cases, to handle, for already over thirty cases for dry law violations are on hand. There is hardly a day passes but that the office is informed of arrests at Mrd Session Held In Federal District Court insisting on their other proposal for the abandonment by America of its Pacific island fortifications.

The fines imposed by Judge Farring ton during the past six weeks from de fendants make a tidy sum, for roughly estimated in the clerk's office it will run over $15,000 for fines, with uossibly $3,000 for court costs. This, it is con tended, more than pays the cost of court, and it may be stretched far enough to cover the expense of arrests, together with costs of transportation and commissioners' fees. When it is considered that a score or more of attorneys have been employed by the defendants the expense of boot legging has reached a sum that makes it look like big business. In talking of the enforcement of the dry law and the growing work in the office of the federal district attorney, M. A. Diskin, deputy federal attorney, stated it was fast getting beyond con trol, as the Volstead violation trials have taken precedent over important civil cases involving large sums of money and requiring adjustment through the Federal court. He stated that many cases which could have been taken up and tried have had to go over owing to the demands made on the of fice for immediate prosecution of dry law offenders. He is confident that the office will have to find relief in this matter in order to clear the docket. Following the sentences and fines by Judge Farrington, the clerk's office has been doing a regular banking business. In several instances defendants have produced a roll of bills) that looks like a bank. It has been noted that in most instances the fines are paid in bills of large denominations, the $100 bill be ing the favorite pocket piece.

FORMER CARSON LADY DIES IN CALIFORNIA Word has been received in this city announcing the death of Mrs. Eva Fel lows, widow of the late Fred Fellows of this city. Following the death of her husband several years ago Mrs. Fellows went with her children two daughters and a son' to Santa Rosa. Calif., where she has since made her home. During her residence in this city the deceased made a large circle of friends who will regret to learn of her death. From the few details fur nished, she was ill but a few days.

A LIVELY WIND The heavy wind of yesterday after noon and evening,' while it failed to bring any material amount of moisture, did scatter everything loose in town to many quarters. A number of signs, some awnings, benches and tree limbs were wrecked, while gates and old fences were pros trated. Enough rain fell during the af ternoon to lay the dust, which helps some, Several inches of new snow has been deposited on the summit between here and Glertbrook, while it is reported that more snow is now on the riacerville summit. eral instances bills of larger amounts have been handed in, while in no in stance have shin plasters been offered the clerk for fines. There are very few cases where the fines are hot paid, and where possible the defendants ask for fines instead of jail sentences ; in such cases the money was forthcoming immediately. It is presumed the lawyers also re ceive their fees with the same alacrity, for in many of the cases they come for ward with the cash for the defendants. During the six weeks of trial from twenty-five to forty jurymen have been in this city, together with lawyers, de fendants and witnesses, making one of the busiest sessions in court history ever held in Carson. Must Retain Army I returned filled with confidence of the conference's ultimate success. France must retain an army large enough for its own defense unless given guaran tees. If such guarantees are forthcom ing France is ready to listen to all suggestions for limitation of its army. The premier added that France must retain her present proportionate strength. His sons here issued a statement de claring that Morse did not go to Europe to escape facing the charges. Request French Order of Deportation By United Press HAVRE, Dec. 2.

The Ameri can government has requested a French order of deportation as the only means os securing his return unless he comes voluntarily. MINERAL COUNTY HELPS IN BIG DEVELOPMENT With- the two undertakings accom plished, which at the outset were de clared by many to be impossible, Min eral county has placed herself on rec ord as being progressive and far-seeing. The secenic road on the west side of Walker lake, which converted moun tains of solid granite into a beautiful all-year route from Reno to Tonopah and Los Angeles, was no more than fin ished when the people of the county got back of the movement to buy the power system and extend it to Mina and Simon and evntually to Cande laria. Last Tuesday electricity began turning the wheels and moving the ma chinery of the Simon mill, thirty miles east of Mina. It is expected that with in five months a similar line will be running at Candelaria, for money has been raised and plans made for its completion in that time.
