liquor Gill, Beckingham et al, "Not Guilty"
After a trail lasting more than three weeks the noted bootlegging bribery trial in Seattle came to end last Saturday by the verdict of "not guilty.: given by the jury, thus freeing Mayor Gill, Police-chief Beckingham and four detectives of bribery charges preferred against them in the federal court
Evidence resting on the statements of bootleggers and proved lawbreakers such as the Bellingsleys is poor material on which to convict men of good reputation and yet there are many who are still convinced that a lot of bribery was carried on.
In the meantime the mayor and police force are continuing their war against illegal booze selling in Seattle, and all unite in saying that liquor is not so easy to get except through the regular permit system.

letter to editor A Statement
To whom it may concern:
I just was told today by a party from Marysville that when I left home Sunday afternoon, June 11, that Mrs. John Olson went with me. She did not. I did not see her after I left Saturday night from John Olson's place and do not know anything of her, and did not know that she intended to go. I know she had trouble, but she never said a word to men and what I saw of her while there, she was a lady in every respect. I got onto a job that day when I got started for home, of a camp at Black Diamond, out of Seattle, so went right on to Everett, that afternoon and got on the car for Seattle and over to the camp to start work Monday morning; stayed there until the first of November, then went to Portland and stayed there until January, then went to work in the steel plant in Seattle, where I am now at work, but expect soon to come back home to my family.
I write this to right a mistake that was made. I do not know if Mrs. Olson is at home or not, but would like the mistake to made right as any man would. She too much of a lady to go with any man and I never thought of such a thing. W.P.GOODMAN
