Citizens Again Petition Gorcrnment
for Protection Governor Geer "
Take Up TJxelr JCane,
-8AX.T2M. -Or- April $0. Six petitions
were received by Governor Geer today, I
signed by a majority of the citizens of
.."Wallowa County, asking that Indians
from" ihe Lapwal, Umatilla and Colvllle
reservations be prohibited- from enter
ing "Wallowa County. -These petitions
have, the same object as a- petition re
ceived some time ago, but they state more
reasons in support of their requests.
Three -of the petitions are addressed to
Secretary of the Interior Hitchcock, and
the other three are addressed to the Gov
ernor, asking him to use his influence
with the Government officials.
It is alleged by the petitioners that the
Indians from these reservations come into
"vjreSlowa County in Jarge numbers, early
acb Spring, and remain until late in the
Tbllf 3hat they bring large bands of horses
infected with Texas mange, and ther In
fectious diseases; that they cut down
fences, spread the Infectious diseases and
Injure the stock business in Wallowa
County; that they erect dams across the
jstnsams, so as to prevent food fishes from
passing up; that by killing game during
She nesting season they have nearly ex-
jtermioaied the game from Wallowa Coun
ty, that because the country is sparsely
settled the people cannot watch the In- J
dlans.to, secure eidence .sufficient to -conr i
"vlpfc iham, and -that the Indians, by their
dcinklag and lighting, terrorize the, citl
jsens to such an extent that they feel un
safe to leave their families alone while
eway attending to their usual, duties.
Governor geer wJH forward the pe
tltlpns pf the Department of the Interior
with the request that the department give
4hp matter early and careful attention, 1

A: -GltAND JVbSU FOR CHAMPOEG.
All Salem Preparing to Witness Un
Tcilixifj of Slomimcnt.'
SALEM, April 30. A letter received by
Governor Geer today from George H.
Hlmes, secretary" of the Oregon Histori
cal Society, announces that extensive pre
parations are being made at Champoeg
' for "the unveiling of the monument there
on Thursday. The letter says In part:
"The dry bones of Champoeg are be
coming instinct with life, as becomes the
Dceasidn. and a flag-polewlll be erected
end a platform and scats will be arranged
so that the. visitors may be fairly com
fortable. The "Bonlta, Captain Hosford,
shas arranged for a special excursion from
McMlnnvllle and DaFayette, and return
the ame -day'
Two boats will leave alem for Cham
Sjoeg Thursday morning, and, most of
those solne from Salem -will go by -boat.
3t3i.e O. R & JZ. Company will .have a boat
leaving down river at fc o'clock A. M. op
the regular trip, at regular fares, and the
Oregon 'City Transportation Company's
bbat will leave at S o'clock A. M. It
"Will charge excursion rates. Returning,
ihe O. R. & X. boat will "leave Cham
poeg in the course of Its regular trip, and
the O. C. T. Company's boat will leave
at 3 P. M.
The present prospect is that a large
crowd of residents of this city will attend)
the ceremonies Thursday. Many will go
on bicycles, both ways, while others will
go by rail to Aurora or Hubbard, and
thence to Champoeg by wheel. The Al
bany local leaves here at 7:54 A. M., ar
riving at Aurora an hour later, thus giv
ing plenty of time for a wheel ride to
Champoeg. Returning, a, bicyclist can
leave Champoeg at 5 P. M. and reach
Aurora In 'time to catch "the Albany local
on the return trip.
Great Interest Is manifested here In the
event, and should the weather "be good
tomorrftw and Thursday, there "will be
general exodus of people to the norh
end of the county. The opportunity to
participate in the commemoration of "an
event of so great direct Importance In the
Salstory of Oregon, will not be presented
again In a lifetime, and all the old-timers
and their descendents are anxious to be
present. The. roads are In good condition
and should there be no rain, distance
will present no. obstacle to those who
cither xbftve pr ride a,, "wheel. The road
from here to Champoeg and return rep
resents "a day's journey." according to
modern methods of travel,, and this in
cludes a three hour's stop at midday.

Tiext Fiscal School Year Dates From
June Instead of March.
SALEM, April 30 The next fiscal year
In public school affairs will be 16 months
long. This Is a break in the usual course
of school events, and one that will oc
casion many misunderstandings and some
minor difficulties. The last Legislature
changed the end of the first fiscal year
from the first Monday in March to
the-. v third Monday In June, and the
change will take effect next. year. This
year the school election took place in
March, and all the school statistics were
computed to that time. School statistics,
showing population, receipts, expendi
ture, etc. IH riot be computed again
until the third Monday In June. 1902. They
wllj therefore cover the period beginning
5n March, 1ML and -ending In June, 1902.
The statistics for next year will conse
quently form no basis for comparison
with former years.
in city districts, tho change "will prob
ably occasion no trouble, but In the coun
try communities It will probably be differ
ent. District clerks will be sending In
their reports In March, or will send them
in -June with statistics for the year end
Jmj livMarch, or avlll cover .a, period be
ginning In June. But the change is one
that meets a general demand that the
fiscal j ear should correspond with the
school sear. The great majority of the
schools close by the third Monday in June, 4
and tnrder the new law the annual re-J
ports will co". er one complete school year,
rather than' parts of two school years, n

Fish Commissioner Little, of Washing
ton, has had considerable trouble, this
Spring with Indians who persist lnplac
lng their traps lh fish hatchery streams.
The Commissioner has recently been
obliged to remove traps from the Methow
River, which effectually blocked the pas
sage of the fish up the stream to the
fish hatchery. Commissioner Little asked
the Attorney-General to give his opinion
as to whether, under the present law,
the rights of the Indians are the same as
those of white fishermen. Mr. Strat
ton holds that the Indians are as amen
able to the law of the state as anyone
else, and in these fish-hatchery streams
the law expressly prohibits fishing for
salmon by any other means than by
angling with a hook -and line.

'OREGON CITY, April 30. Charles Wil
son and his alleged wife in boy's clothes
are still occupying separate apartment?
in the City Xair. Information was- re
ceived from the Chief of Police at Van
couver-today that no persons'under the
names: given had secured a marriage 11-,
eense at Vancouver, but people" answer
ing the description of the couple in Jail
here were,seen In a saloon there on April
27. No word has yet been received from
Samuel P. Hockett, the Condon man,
who has been searching for a, runaway
girl, although the Chief of Police thinks
ho in in the vicinity of Clatskanle. Un
less the girl makes a confession there Is
no way of establishing the Identity of th
peculiar-acting' couple until the arrival of
Hockett. Responsible people here who are
familiar with Hocketfs search for his
daughter and her abductor, gave out the
One year ago last November, Hockett's
only child. Rasa, aged 13, ran away with
a Russian, Who had been discharged from
his employ. Mrs. Hockett went lhsanp
over the affair, and Is now In the Stat
Asylum. Hockett has spent the greater
part of hia means In the search, and Is
said to be almost demented f rom con
tinued" disappointment resulting from fall
lirft to find his daughter. The couple
have been traced to various" points In the '
Northwest during the past year ana u
half, and privato detectives, aa well as In
dividuals, have been employed In the
search. It Is believed that 'they were
bQth in Oregon City some time ago. , The
few people here who were aldirig the fath
er in keeping a- constant watch for any
clow that would lead to the apprehension
of the fugitive couple kept the details pf
the affair to themselves, and U was only
within the past twoor three days that
they gave out any Information to the offi
cers. In appearance the girl Is about 17 year3
old, and or athletic build. Her hair is
cut short and she shows the effects .of her
wandering lfe. To better maintain the
deception she has learned to chew to
bacco, nhlnf nr, Pollco Burns has obtained a
picture ot the girl who Is wanfed In East
ern Oregon. The picture bears a striking
resemblance to the young woman who is
under arrest, with tho difference that the
picture shows, a noa and tidy schoolgirl
with long, flowing hair.
There does not seem to be much doubt'
that this young 'woman Is the missing
daughter of Samuel P. Hockett. It has
been- learned, thht she used to 'ride horses
In races, dressed as a boy. At a fair she
won $50 in a race and the spectators did
not know It was d" girl riding untilthe
Wind" blew her hat off and her flowing
hair toll over hft ghyulders.
