Introduction of letters Bhowlng that the accused had ordered counterfeit ing machines from the east, succeed ed yesterday In presenting before the Jury some damaging evidence against the defendants. Cross-examination of the govern ment's witnesses by Attorney W. W. Bank?, for the defense, had the ap parent effect of only strengthening the direct testimony. At least two additional days will be required for the government to close its case. During the afternoon the govern mnt Introduced three important witnesses whose testimony tended strongly to associate the defendants with the conspiracy with which they are charged. Edward A. Johnson, of the Watson-Stone company of New York City, was the star witness. He tfKtlOi that in 1904 his firm sold to Johannnen, one of the defendants, a hydraulic press, which Johannset said he wanted to ship to Idaho for the purpoF? of making coins. The business relations of the firm with Tohannnen were further estab- ' llehed by Introduction of letters from Johannsen to the firm. These were admitted by the court as evidence over rne vigorous objections of coun for the defendants.

The big traction engine and cars which are to haul freight and grain between this place and the railroad at Shanlko, left the latter place this morning on Its second trial trip out, saya the Madras Pioneer. On Its first trip, two weeks ago, It met with disaster in Cow canyon on of New York, testified to having fill ed order from the defendants for Implements such as would be used In coining money. William J. Flynn, a secret service ap-nt, was the last witness for the government yesterday and his testi mony was considered vital to the de fondants In that he declared the reed ing collar, recovered from the al lele panjr of counterfeiters, were of the correct size for making $5 and 120-goid coin and could not be used for any legitimate purpose. ...' James A. Graham, employed In an eastern steel manufacturing plant, wns on the stand In the morning, and told of having received orders from was compelled to turn back after get ting half way down the canyon, to await the necessary widening of the grades at one or two points in the canyon. . During the past 10 days a force of nearly a score of men and 10 or 12 teams have been grading up and widening the road down Cow can yon, and It Is now said to be In first class condition for the big engine and cars. Work Is also being done . on .the road this side ef the Lyle & Brown gap, which was the only other point where any trouble was anticipated. It Is expected now that the engine will encounter no further difficulties In making the trip out. ness, leaving hla wife In America. v hile traveling in France he was among the victims of a terrible rail way accident. Beside his body in the morgue was placed the body of another victim, a handsome woman whose satchel contained some of his visiting cards. The authorities suspecting nothing Irregular, cabled to the family in America to Inform them of the two deaths. The widow cabled back merely ordering them to send his body home for burial. A second cable was accordingly sent from France to say that a lady had been traveling with him, that one of his cards was found upon her, and that her bag contained letters signed with his name. ' A description of the lady and the name written on envelopes In her bag were also wired across the ocean. . . A prompt reply came back. The authorities were instructed to burj the husband at once, in France, but nothing was said about the unfortu nate woman., They were burled It French graves, side by side. It sub sequently developed that the woman had been a lifelong friend of the be reaved family. No one suspected any- tning between the two, but the facts pointed to a carefully arranged meet lng In Europe The letters from him found among her belongings afterwards fully proved mat the liaison had been go ing on for years. The man, whose name has been carefully withheld, Is said to have been prominent In the business life of one of the largest cit ies In the United States. When S. A. D. Puter, the land- fraud king, completes his sentence he Intends to see that the govern ment recovers thousands of acres of land obtained through fraud by his former conspirators in crooked deals. Puter does not say he Intends to be a reformer, but explains that If the government recovers the land Involved there will be great opportunities for making money legitimately. "The very best timber land In Ore gon has been obtained by fraud," complains the federal prisoner, "and the government should recover It, When I get out of jail I am going to urge the government to recover this land, or know why. Many Hold Land by Fraud. "One man alone secured 80 quar ter sections of the best timber land In the state through fraud. This represents 12,800 acres, and this land is worth from 88000 to 110,000 a quarter section, so, at the conserva tive figure, this fellow alone has tied up Umber land with a marketable value of 8640,000. . "This is but one of several Instances where the government received the worst of It When Heney made his investigation he showed the gigantic graft being perpetrated, and how th land had been obtained fraudulently. This resulted in holding up proceed Ings, and the government had ample proof of fraud. Now. If the govern ment recover this land, I am going ta find out why. "There Isn't much money In being crooked. I know that better tnan nnvnne. The last two years I have been In trouble have cost me a for tune. I have been missing the op portunity of a lifetime, for had I been free, with the way timber has been Increasing in value, I would be a rich man today. Instead of being In Jail nnd penniless. Easterners are Crooks. "I want to say, too, that those eastern men, the lumbermen in Min- neota, Wisconsin and Michigan, would rather be crooked tnan ctralght. They wijl take up a snaay proposition quicker than they will a legitimate deal. Intimate to them that there Is a scheme whereby tbey can defraud the government, and they will Jump at the chance. They will riietito the terms, too. These men are millionaires, and they accumulat ed their wealth by robbing the gov ernment. They consider the govern ment legitimate game an easy mark tc be fleeced at every opportunity. "I know all about these fellows, and I know their system. Being in JM1 isn't what It is cracked up to be, evtn though I have been taking on flesh until Jailer Frank Beatty has decided to put me In training. want to get out, and once I do you'll never see me behind the bars eating meals supplied by the officials. I'm in for two years, and will be out some time next March, if I'm not pardoned out before then. My family Is mak lng efforts to secure my pardon, but I don't know with what success."

STOP THE STRENUOUS LIFE. Weakens the Tissues and Lessens Or ganic Vitality. The stress and strain of the stren uous life In both city and country tends towards stomach troubles. The frantic rush for pleasure, mon ey and-excltement Is bringing serious results. Elaborate food, late sup pers, over-eating and too much drinking are some of the causes of stomach weakness for which the In dividual Is responsible. Five people suffer today where, one did 10 years ago with sick headache, dizziness, flatulence, distress after eating, specks before the eyes, bloat Ing, nervousness, sleeplessness and the many other symptoms of Indiges tion. All who are suffering with stom ach troubles, and that means at least two out of three In Pendleton and other towns, should use, Ml-l-na stom ach tablets. Nothing else Is as safe, yet effective; nothing else can be so thoroughly relied upon to relieve all troubles from Indigestion as Ml-o-na. It Is unlike any remedy heretofore known, and Is actually one ' of the most valuable discoveries In modern medical science. It Is not a mere digestive taken af ter the food Is eaten, but a true tonic, stimulant and strengthener for the muscular walls of the stomach, In creasing the flow of, digestive fluids and putting the stomach Into such condition that it does the work Na ture expects of It. It la an absolute and lasting cure for It banjshes all weakness and debility from the stom aoh and bowels. So reliable is Ml-o-na In Its cura tive action that Tallman & Co., with every 50 cent, box they sell give a guarantee to refund' the money un less the remedy does all that is claim ed for It. .
