the mail, and after remaining until noon
returned with passengers. I received a
telegram by mail from Seattle sent to me
on July 2nd by Dist. Atty. Harlan - who
arrived here in person and with his family
on the 14th! - five days ahead of his
telegram - also letter today from him dated
July 1st! Good letter from Darrell but
no official mail whatever. No boat from
down the river yet: Court at a stand
still until the boat does come: but today
I overruled defendants motion in U.S. vs.
Puckett, et. al. for continuance & set the
case for trial tomorrow morning.
Trial U.S. v. Sam Puckett, Ole Anderson
and Walter B. Allen, for assault & battery,
verdict guilty: Fine $200. each. = $600.00
Allen is son of Lawyer Allen of Seattle - he
is too smart & brought on trouble thereby.
