VERDICT NOT GUILTY
A flisseeri State Smtfr. Acntitte# el
Bribery Ckarft.
.Jefferson City. Mo., Aug. 7.—Stgle
Senator Frank H. Karri» was to<t»>
acquitted by a Jury in th« Circalt
Cour» on a char** of bribery in con
nection with a bill introduced at (he
session of the State legislature1 In
1901 to repeal the statute prohibit
ing the use alum in the manufacture
of baking powder, commonly knrtwn
a» the alum bit).
The triai bad lasted for a week,
the principal testimony of the state
being that of former Lieutenant Gov
ernor John A. I>»e, on whose testi
mony before the grand jury indict
ments were returned against Kacris
and former State Senator Smith Jt
is regarded that the acquittal of
Karris precludes the possibility of a
conviction ift the Smith case, as the
charges in each instance were identi
cal. It is announced that trie Smith
ca«e will be dismissed by the state.

Before leaving Los Angeles we vis
ited Uie island of Santa Catalina
which is reached by steamer twenty
five miles from San Pedro. This Is
land consists of about forty thousand
acres and is the property of Ban
ning Bros . and valued ar five million
dollar· ft is a delightful resort, Is
said to have the uio«M equable clim
ate of any place in the United States,
the temperature never poing higher
than sixty and never below flfty-tèo.
and is a great place for rest and rec
reation, The chief amusement being
fishing nnrt hunting the wild goats,
and i« al*n noted for i's beautiful
marine gardens which are seen from
glass bottom boats. After a visit to
Santa Cntalina one is prepared to l>e
|lfe\e any fish story that may be told
as they catch them there by the
; thousand daily and we saw manv
black ba-- weighing from three hun
dred to five hundred pounds caught
with a hook and Une I want inno
cence to stop talking about those lit
tfe fish down on the gulf as thev
would onlj serve for bait out here."
San Jose Is an old town with con
siderable new added on and in same
respects remind^ me of San Antonio,
Texas, having a population of about
twenty-five thousand and including
suburbs about forty thousand, the
population being decidedh cosmo

We are fift\ miles from San Fran

Just cool enough at this time to re
