SPOKANE IS GETTING GOOD Yesterday was "banner day" on the Oolden Rule tab at the police head qusrters and as a consequence the clothe* of the "coppera" nre uome what tighter today. Met ween the hours of 1.10 yester day morning aad 11 59 in the eve | Southern Pacific road to undertake his present duties. It la said that he Is responsible more than any other man for the existence of the new transcontinental project. Bad to Have "Yankees." i It was early discovered that the new Canadian road could not he built | without American brains, skill and labor. The projectors of the road recently struck a snag due to the Im portation of about 50 civil engineers and surveyors to lay out the lire. The Canadian engineers invoked the 1 alien labor net (which, by the way, was passed in retaliation against the I United States for the law excluding 'Canadian laborers), and the whole batch of engineers was seized nnd deported. They quietly slipped over the border afialn, nnd plunged Into : the woods where their duties lay. The [ Canadian authorities found it difficult to follow them Into the virgin forests lof the northwest. Meantime, ull the I money nnd inlluence of the railway -000. and to Imprisonment for not I more than two years. It Is alleged that on June 30, 1902, ' the defendant conspired to suborn 100 persons to commit the offense of per i Jury by making fnlse declarations In the filling of land near Prineville. Marion R. Biggs was at that time ' United States commissioner, and it Is alleged that 100 persons went before him and swore that lands about to be filed upon under the timber and stone act were be ing taken in good faith hy them when in fact the entries were being made at the solicitation and under the direction of the defendants, who were to receive the lands, once patent had been Issued on th«m. The lands It Is alleged were to be aoqulred by Williamson nnd Van Oes ner, partners In the sheep business near Prineville, and to be used by them for sheep range. The opening day was consumed In the selection of a Jury. The case promises to be a most stubbornly contested one and to occupy as much If not more time in the hearing than the Mitchell case. More than 100 ning hut six arrests were made and durinir the early hours of this morn ing there was not a single arrest. This, tlie police say, is remarkable, for during the hours between 12 o'c lock midnight and C o'c lock in the morning there is usually something doing, Of the six nrrests yesterday two of them were women, while tho rest were merely "drunKS" or dis orderly persons.

Vice President Hays estimates the area of the wheat belt of the Canadian northwest as 171,- --000,000 acres. The average yield per i acre is 20 bushels from this virgin soil, which new agricultural wealth is expected to furnish plenty of traffic for the new road, when It is cum- J pleted, years from now. witnesses are present for the prose cution who hope to prove by their evidence that the allegations of the government are true, while a small army will testify in behalf of the de fense against the indictment and Its charges.
