Thc  halibut   she   brought   down   were     in  fine shape,  being so good  lhat out of  two  carloads  prepared   for  shipment  this   morning only  one cull   fish   was  discovered.    The   fish   averaged   over  thirty  pounds .in  weight.  Iu answer to an inquiry as to how  ho accounted for the better catches  secured lately, Mr. Grier Starrctt,  manager of the conipany, staled that  they were largely due to thc ��������� fact  that good rrcsli herring is now available for . bait,������������������ and the fishermen do  not have , to ti.se bait which hr.s -been  kept  in   brine   for months.  "And then, you .know, (ish have  tails and tliey swim," 'added Mr.  Sta_rctt, "and when they go out to  sea wc cannot find them. The fall of.  the year is always a poor season on  the halibut, banks, but the fish are  now becoming more plentiful." j  filial   witness   produced  by   the prosecution, i   and   ondiicct   exaniinati in  gave, a .straightforward and damaging  story     of the niairiagc and   married  life of the couple.    Collins   took her  in   hand     for   cross-examination.   It  vva.s evidently his intention  to   ',row-  lj-af.     her into some  flash  of au-rcr  which  would   win  him  sympathy    u-  oiig tlie jurors.  lie succeeded in exciting the woman's fury. He led her along lo ,i, confession of the.episode in which he-  drove lu-r and Thomas Ladd 'io ii  his house and pursued her, accom-  paniel by a number of friends, down  vaiio-.is crowded sticets until she was  finally intercepted by a policeman.  Finally 'having developed the tale for  the delectation of the. court-room ���������  throng,   hc  asked  triumphantly:  "You arc unfriendly to the defen-  (l::nt,   are you not?"  "I. am,"  returned the woman in a  repiessed but bitter fashion. "I'd like  to see you  go to San Quentin."  "Ah.  you  would   probably assist in  my   transportation?"   suggested   Collins, j  "I'd do anything I could lo send  yuii there," replied tho witness earnestly.  --Is that why you ate giving tins-  t.sliino'ny?''  '"Yes,  and   I'm giving this   lestimo-  nv in      the hope that  you'll, be sent  liicic.'" '     -  Collins   accompaii'id   almost   every  slalement  with  some   objection fram-  ul  to  impeach   the  witness   or       to,  a.oi.se the court.   To Judge Lennonls  i lost     casual remark's ������ie. jnsistcd.on  lecordiiig   exceptions.    Judge   Lennon  leaned over his desk at, last and said:  "Air.  Collins, your manner is offensive and  impertinent  and .intended.to  irritate me.   Whether  it  is the intention      or not  it must ��������� be stopped. If  not,  I shall  find  away  to  slop   it."  The general-impression is that Collins will not .be convicted  of perjury.  ���������:���������: :_   A STORMY  MEETING  olhei lc-adm-i v In <s.- markets, isthe  ..laiUniy statement made by _lr.

He asked  what  would    be     thought   when  a British  premier took his orders from the ene-.  mies of his country,   and  when  heusf  cd his high position to undermine the  constitution which he was there    to  support.  He then turned ,to  the fiscal matters', repeated his old arguments, and  contended   that  the .suggested taxation   would  be   practically   insignificant,  and would be compensated  for  in other ways.

Gotfred Hansen, of the Royal  Danish navy, and six seamen! The  boat was but, a stoutly built walrus  sloop :such as the Norwegians msc*hi  their hunts for ivory and biubi-cr.  Amundsen placed in thc little ship a  petroleum engine, which, under ravor-  abie conditions -would propel the ship  four knots an hour, but his main reliance, was upon thc sailing ability  and seaworthiness of his craft.  The estimated cost of thc expedition, which was to last four years,  was only $27,500. thc greater p-r.r.  tion of which Captain Aniundson defrayed '.out of his own pocket  This  was  the .expedition that c_us-  .ed Traf.     Schmidt,  of the university  'of Berlin, to     say:   "It is the r.iO'.t  important  scioii'tific  expedition   of thc  century."  The     re-iccation  of    the  magnetic  pole  was only a portion ctr the work  that Captain. Amundsen had laul  out,  I lor himself.

Last   .May    the news    -arrived that  Caj't Amundsen had ma'de highly impel taut discoveries and found tne  north.magnetic pole whose d'.pcovery  is originally credited to Ross in IS31  although many scientists doubt lhat  Ross really loc-ite'l .Ins elusive guide  !u the ,'onipasses of the world,  'lhc iiiji'lti 'magnetic* ,_pie 1ms been  ^fii un'.illy .-���������ssunicd by ceogralilK'i's ; s  '...'ing on l'oollu.i, Ibe lnosL mnlliMiy  -.ciiiiisiiia oi tlit* ������������������American continent,  mi! close !( bnig '.'-liiirii. ,' an.I It  is supposed lo be a'sliiftmg sphere of  influence, though its vai iations are  not great.

In     addition  to this^ discovery, the  pxpcihtiq-n    had   gone from Greenland  to   a point     south of   King    William  Land, and has jiiohib'y completed .a  notthwest   pass.u e   which   navigators  have heen      ui s cce'isfi.i  in, trying to  do .'or ,i\*cr  4no veirs  Amundsen, 'incident to these achieve  ments lias foi-pd th-* nionument erected j,y Sir John Franklin when, thc  great explorer and 139 of his men  were perishing in the ice.

Phone 20  HADDIES  Pickhd Pig's Feet  in KITs  AND  ADAM  CARLISLE  'PHONE  BLOCK,  2-4  FORBID  GIRLS  TO  PLAY  BASKETBALL.  By  a unanimous     vote shs faculty  of  the state university iat   a regular  meeting yesterday decided  to prohibit, says   tbe Seattle P.-L, the girls  from  playing basketball games,     on  the grounds of. propriety and health.  Little had  been thought that the faculty would take., such a decided stand i  against  the  sport,   and  a great  stir '  has been created among the stude-its ,  Last year the same qnes-tipn    was  agitateil  to some  extent,   but      the  matter, was dropped   before  anything _  was     accomplished,   and many were  expecting the.same result fi'om    this  iniv.estigration.   Upon the rec,omanen<la-  Uion  of the physical  directors at the  j university,   Miss   Iludberg   and     Dr.  I Roller,'who  say  the game  is 'detrimental to thc health of girls and is  apt to injure them  seriously for life,  besides bringing them .before the public in a way  that  is not" particularly  desirable,  the     faculty has based its  stand.  ���������Girls'-basketball  at the university  is now played under  the samel rules  used by men.   It is condemned on the  grounds of  being  entirely   too  rough  for  women.    The   faculty   considers it  contains   too   much   brutality,   which  must be eliminated.  |    It is to be inferred that  thc faculty  , will  be  in favor of the game if    the  i rules   are modified.    For  some   time  there  lms been  a movement  on    foot  ���������lietween Washington, Oregon and !.da-  universilies    to     change    the basketball  rules  for     the gins,   lint as. yet  the  negotiations have  not  been   concluded, and   the    points at issue arc  not ,certain.    It has been hinted that  |   a ,bmsket5-ali  league might  possibly  formed  between  thc three schools.  I     Basketball is played under differon  ' rules  for boys and   girls at some of  the eastern schools,  and   thc faculty  will   not object  to   the game if  it    is  made to conform to a woman's game,  under the present rules,  or the gins'  code   is adopted.      .It  is most likely  the latter course will be pursued.  All attempts to arrange a schedule  have been dropped ,and no trip can be  taken unless all of the schools adopt  the same rules as Washington.  Among -some of the teachers of\tho  cily schools the game for girls has  been severely censured and many of  them highly  disfavor it,  v ,"'���������������������������  TT  . vTIttJ-R^HTiTIME TO CHOOSE  YOUR XMAS GIFTS  'Is now, when you c_n examine at your leisure thc feast ot Beauty  thai; we' bjitve provided' (or   those who  wish  to1 choose  JEWELS  'and;iiRlt!H.'D'ESI_NS'lN JEWELRV.
