Story That Spread Over Two

A telegraphic dispatch was receiv
ed at the otflce of The Evening News
at 9 o'clock this morning stating
there was a rumor in circulation in
Portland to the effect that ex-President
Roosevelt had been - killed In
the jungles of Africa, that the news
lacked confirmation. That Us readers
bhould have the Bubstance of the dis
patch as soon as possible. It was past
ed on the large window of the busi
ness office on Jackson street, and
the telegraph asked to send details,
at earliest possible moment.
Shortly thereafter came this dis
"WASHINGTON, D. C, Nov., 5.
The rumor that ex-President Roose
velt was killed In Africa is wide
spread all over the country, but dil
igent search here fails to disclose the
slightest foundation for It."
Then comes a cable dispatch from
London, which reported:
"LONDON, Nov. 5. A rumor is
preveltmt here that ex-President
Roosevelt had met his deajth on one
of his hunting trips In the jungle
of Africa, but how or when was not
included in the rumor. Diligent
Inquiry gives no confirmation to the
Another dispatch received at 3
o'clock this afternoon thought the
authorship of the rumor had been
traced to a Wall street firm, and
NEW YORK, Nov. 5. Officers of
a Wall street corporation, having
interests in Africa, is believed to be
the source of the rumor of ex-Presf-dent
Roosevelt having been killed
Iu the jungles circulated nil over the
United States this morning. The
United Press has been unable to get
into immediate communication with
its correspondent with the Roosevelt
party, but inquiries at Nairoli
brought forth denial of the story.
The last dispatch was from Wash
ington and came this evening:
"WASHINGTON, Nov. 5. The
State. Department has not received
anything indicating any truth ill, or
basis for the rumor that ex-President
Roosevelt had met death In Africn.
lnnuliies at the Smithsonian Insti
tute and- all other places where In
formation of such an accident would
be sent, failed to reveal any reason
for the rumor."
Everything goes to prove that the
rumor was started by some ono for
a purpose, and whether It came from
the Wall street firm as alleged or nSl
may be taken with a grain of salt,
for it does not stand to reason that
ex-President's death could effect any
Wall street Interest In Africa.
That Roosevelt Is not dead the pre
ponderance of testimony shows, but
that there is nothing to the rumor,
who can say. It does not look reas
onable that a rumor which has
spread over two continents could be
mnde of whole cloth, and there may
be something to It after all.

Court Reaches Agreement
SIMONDS IS CHOICE
Nichols Advances the Motion In
Seconded by. Hyan Carries by ,
Vnaiiil'iious Vote To 1ms
Shipfcd at Once.
Late yesterday afternoon the mem
bers of the qffeuty court arrived at a
satisfactory agreement relative to the
purchase of a rock crusher, and ac
cordingly the, same waa ordered
through T. J: Patterson, represent
ing Beale & Company, of Portland.
Upon final consideration Commis
sioner Nichols advanced a motion
authorizing the purchase, the same
being seconded by Commissioner
Ryan. Upon being placed to a vote
all three members of the court cant,
ballot in the affirmative. The crush
er is of the Simon ds manufacture and
is considered by expert road builders
as the best machine of Its kind oh
Aside from the purchase of the
rock crusher the court also contract
ed for several heavy dump wagon,
such as are necessary in handling
rock and gravel at an advantage.
These wagons are similar to those us
ed by the Warren Construction Com
pany and will no doubt answer their
purpose for many years to come.
Although the court has as yet not
fully dpclded as to what course they
will pursue in the Improvement of
the county roads during the coming
year, It Is hinted that they will in
stall the crusher In North Roseburg
at the quarry recently abandoned by
tho Warren Construction Company
Immediately upon Its arrival. With
a competent crew of operators the
court believes that they will be able
to crush sufnclnt rock during the
winter to Improve a number of the
roads in tho spring. Other highways
will receive attention just as fast as
the rock enn be crushed and hauled
to the different sections of the coun
ty where needed.
To say the least, the indications
point to considerable road building
during the coming year.
