DETECTIVE ON STAND
Says He Was Employed to Watch

LAWYERS ENGAGE IN HOT ROW
Evidence Involves Names of Several
Identified With San Francisco
San Francisco, May 20. Into the
trial of Patrick Calhoun, president of
the United Railroads, there was inject-
late yesterday an extraordinary
chapter dealing with the uses and
methods of detectives. John Helms,
at one time the head of a private de
tective bureau in this city, narrated in
detail, as a witness for the prosecution,
the secrets he claims to have learned
during his term of employment as an
agent of the United Railroads. His
testimony, which relates to an early
period in the history of the graft pros
ecution, already involves the names of
several persons more or less prominent-
identified with the defense, and
there is a promise of more revelations
when he resumes the stand today.
Helms had scarcely started his nar
ration when there ensued a legal
wrangle that has had no parallel in the
hve months that have elapsed since the
trial was commenced. Five of the de
fendant's attorneys protested against
the admission of Helms' testimony and
counsel on both sides, with flushed
faces and voices raised to an angry
pitch, were engaged in a legal battle
that was waged for nearly an hour.
Judge William P. Lawlor finally ad
mitted the evidence.
Helms testified that he had come to
this city in response to a request by
Attorney Louis Hoeffler early in May,
1907, at which time the first trial of
Tirey L. Ford, counsel for the United
Railroads, bad been commenced. Mr.
Hoeffler, he said, instructed him to
watch everything done by the prosecu
tion ana report tbe information bo
gathered. Assistant District Attorney
Francis J. Heney attempted to learn
what persons were shadowed by Helms,
but the court sustained an objection.

CZAR PARDONS TWO.
Sentences on Admiral Nebogatoff and
General Stoessel Revoked.
St. Petersburg, May 19. The czar
today ordered the release of Admiral
Nebogatoff and General Stoessel, who
were confined at the fortress of St
Peter and St. Paul, under sentences of
life imprisonment. Nebogatoff surren
dered his fleet to Admiral Togo and
Soessel surrendered Port Arthur during
the war with Japan. They were tried
for cowardice, and imprisoned for life
after the close of the war. Stoessel is
believed to be dying and Nebogatoff is
very sick. While the illness of the
pair was given as the reason for the
czar's pardon, it is known that popular
agitation along other lines had a cer
tain bearing upon the case.
There has been an unusually strong
undercurrent of unrest for some time,
and the imprisonment of the officers
was used as a shield by certain agitators.
Another line of attack made on the
government is criticism over the recent
appropriation of 80,841.000 roubles for
improvement of the army, while no
steps have been taken for the relief of
the thousands of persons who are starv
ing to death in the Kieff district. Dis
patches are received every day telling
of frightful famine conditions in that
district, but as yet no action has been
taken by the government. .

The hew rates will be based upon

Young Turks Plan to Alter Succession

Constantinople, May 20. If legisla

According to the present law, on the

Sleuths Flock to Spokane in Search
of Train Robbers.
Spokane, May 18. Responding to
the biter of rewards aggregating $66,
000, offered by the Federal authorities
and the railroad company for the cap
ture and conviction of the robbers who
held up and plundered a Great North
ern train near Spokane, detectives are
gathering here from many places. Sev
eral arrived from Denver, and the
Pinkerton force here has 'been increas

Spokane police believe the robbers
made.their way into Spokane and a
close watch is kept on the saloonB and
lodging houses. A number of detec
tives are working on the theory that
the desperadoes are hiding in the
mountains back of Colbert.
Police and railway men say they do
not believe that Charles McDonald,
the notorious train robber who broke
jail in Helena, Mont., while awaiting
trial for holding up a Great Northern
train at Rondo, Mont, shared in rest

Extravagance of His Welcome Angers
Vienna, May 18. This city is echo

nection with the visit of Emperor
William. It is agreed that the wel
come of the august visitor was out

were on a scale quite disproportionate
to the brief and incidental character of
the visit. Indeed, the extravagance of
the municipal authorities has aroused
the indignation of the already overbur

Despite glowing panegyrics of the
Viennese newspapers and their assev
erations of gratitude for Germany's
support in the dark days of the Balkan
crisis, coupled with declarations that
the future interests of the two empires
will be still more closely united, poli
ticians are afraid that Austria has
given Germany a heavy mortgage on
her future. Austria may be forced to
join Germany in any foreign policy the
latter chooses to adopt.
