"The committee, consisting of John
Pemherton, H. J. Zercher, H. 8. Gile,
W. E. Way and J. F. tlanchard, which
waa appointed at the lav meeting to
make all arrangement for organizing
and commencing business a soon as
possible, reported favorably and outlined
a plan of organization, which waa adopt
ed. "The regulations and by-laws of the
Farmers' Fire Kelief Association, of
liulteville, Oregon, was taken as the
frame work upon which to build the
by-laws of the organization. Those by
laws were read article by article and
adopted with such change aa were
deemed necessary to adapt them to the
needs of the new association. It will
conform in almost every particular to
the Hutteville Association.
"The association will be known as
the Prune Growers' Fire Relief Associa
tion of Oregon. For the present, at
leat, the association will insure only
prune driers, prune warehouses, fixtures
and prunes. The plan ol assessment is
based upon the old line insurance rates
on prune driers. Each assessment. which
may be levied whenever the association
is in need of money, will consist of 20
perc- itie assessment of the ola line
"The delegate elected a board of di
rectors, consisting of Bruce Cunning
ham, John Pemherton, A. W, Mizs, L.
M. Gilbert and Lloyd T. Reynolds. Im
mediately after the meeting adjourned,
the board of directors held a meeting
ami elected temporary oflicees as fol
lows: President, L. T. Reynolds ; vice
president, Bruce Cunningham ; secreta
ry, J. r. lilanchard. The headquarters
of the association will be Salem, and the
by-law provide for an annual meeting fo
(be association. The bosrd of directors
will meet again next Saturday to perfect
the business of the association andget
solicitors in the field.
"A committee, consisting of. John
Peraberton, W. E. Way and L. M. Gil
bert, was chosen to dralt article of in
corporation and file them with the sec
retary of atate. ' According to the state
liw the association cannot transactbuei
ness until $300,000 in stock has been
aubscribed, or applications made for
risks covering that amount. This will
be about 300 prone driers and ware
houses, counting the average insurance
on each at $1000. The state law also
regulates the amount of insurance to be
carried; no property to be insured for
more than $1000, nor for more than
two thirds it actual value.
"The object of the association is purely
for the benefit and protection of the
prune-growers of the state, and there
are to be no pecuniary profit or divi
dends paid to any member or stock
holder. WILL COMPLETE ORGANIZ ATI0X.
At a meeting of the Willamette Valley
Prune Growers' Association last week
the matter of insurance on prune drier
was brought up and discussed, and it
was finally decided that the rates
charged by the old line companies weie
too high, so it was proposed that a com
mute be appointed to investigate the
workings of the Butteville Hop Growers'
Mutual Association, with a view to or
ganizing a similar mutual association,
says the Salem correspondent to the
Portland Telegram. Thi committee,
after due investigation, called a meeting
Inst Wednesday, made a favorable re
port, which was adopted and a tempor
ary association was organized and a
board of director appointed with in
struction to complete the organization
The Board of Directors of the Prune
Growers' Fire Relief Association, how
ever, held a meeting on Saturday even
ing Inst, and decided not to complete the
organization of the association, but to
accept instead a proposition made them
by the Oregon Fire Relief Association, of
MuMinnville, which was considered very
fair and favorable to the growers.
Under the state law it would have
been necessary for the association to se
cure $300,000 worth of risks, the maxi
mum amount to be carried by any one
man to be $1000, before they could do
business. This would require the pa
tronage of at least 300 growers within
the state, and to secure this amount of
business in time to insure before prune
drying begins wonld require the employ
ment of about a dozen solicitors, at con
siderable expense to the association, the
fund for which would have to be ad
vanced by the promoter.
In the Oregon Fire Relief Association
the same plan and proportion of rate
will be charged as in the old line com
panies, but only 50 per cent of the old
rate will constitute an assessment.
AS EXITRSIOX TRAIN WRECKED.
Chief of Folice Iinrns on Train And
An excursion train on the Northern
Pacific, consisting of an engine and seV'
eral coaches, en route to the Elks' clam
bake at Olvmma. was wrecked at 11
o'clock last Saturday morning, two
miles south of Chehalis. Washington.
Two people were killed and about thirty
The train left Portland about 7:30
Saturday morning, crowded with promt
nent Elk, their friend and families.
The train was running at a good rat of
speed when the rails spread throwing
the engine down an embankment forty
feet. Three coaches piled on top of the
engine, and to add to the horror of the
scene, the boiler of the engine exploded,
throwing scalding water and steam lor
several yard around.
The fourth, fifth and sixth coaches left
the track, but only the front end of the
fourth car went over the bank. The
seventh coach did not leave the rails.
Nearly every one in the first coach
wa injured, the most of them having
fractured limb. Those who escaped in
jury started in to assist the Injured and
pull them from the wreck. Several doc
tor were on the train and within a abort
time were at work on the sufferers.
A messenger wa hurried to Cbebali
with the new and a train of flat cart
waa tent to the scene of the wreck to
bear the injured to the hospital. Every
doctor in Chehalis and Centralia hurried
to the wreck and a special train was sent
from Tacoma with doctors and nnrses.
C. B. Farleman, who was killed in the
wreck, conducted a cigar and confec
tionery store in Portland, and wa the
oldest living member of the Portland
lodge of Elk. T. E. Daniels, son of Ex-Lieutenant-Governor
Daniels, of Wash
ington, and a reporter on the Oregonian,
had an arm broken, band crashed and
leg fractured, but wa able to telegraph
the news of the accident to bi paper. The
other person killed outright was a tramp,
who wa helpiog on the engine.
OaBGOIf CITY PI0PLB WEE TH8BK.
Chief of Police Cbas. Burns, was the
only Oregon Cityite who was a passenger
on the Northern Pacific Elks' excursion
train that was derailed Saturday near
Chehalis. Chief Burns, Mr. and Mi. W.
Cole, Dr. W. E. Carll and E. J. Deal
ton, all of this city, went to Portland to
join the excursion, but of that party Mr.
Burns was the only one to reach the de
pot in time to take the excursion train,
the other member of the party being
fiassengers on the regular overland that
eft afterwards. For a time following
the announcement of the accident there
was considerable anxiety among the rel
atives of the members of the party here
a to their safety.
At the time of the accident Chief
Burns, in company with a traveling
man. wa standing on the platform of
the rear coacb of the train, and it is a
co-incidence that they were discussing
the possible extent of the damage that
might follow il the train should leave the
The first intimation Chief Burns had
that anything was wrong was the sound
of the boiler exploding, which was
plainly heard above the roar of the train
that was going at the rate of more than
fifty miles an bour. This disturbance
was followed almost instantly by a fear
ful lurching of the train, the rear coach
almost leaving the track. A second con
cussion caused much confusion in the
last car, where all of the passenger
were thrown violently from their seats.
Chief Burns hastened to the demolished
cars and gave a helping hand in caring
for the injured. He gives a graphic de
scription of the scenes ot the accident,
and ay the railroad company is in hi
opinion entirely responsible for th acci
dent, because the train crew proceeded
with the engine in its evident unsafe
and dangerous condition under protest.

THERE iS NO SUBSTITUTE
REFUSE TO SELL
Owners of Falrclough Mine
mil Hold Property.
Rejected an Offer or $20,000 One
Ton of Ore to be Nent to
It I reported that Fairclough Bros., of
thi city, who together with Portland
parties own one of the most promising:
claim in the Molalla mining district,
this week refused an offer of $20,000 for
their property. While the rumor could
not be confirmed, it is known that the
owner of tbia claim have received sev
eral flattering offers all of which have
been refused. It is the parpose of those -holding
the property to prospect the
claim for all it is worth and if the pres
ent promising prospects hold oat, it is
their purpose to put in a plant.
3. W. Grace and B. Lee Westover, of
thi city, returned last Friday from Ogle
Creek on the upper Molalla where the
Faircloagb claim i located. They re
port that nearly thirty of the claim are
being worked by prospector while many
other claim have been staked oat ana
the locators have returned to their
homes. Many new people are going into
the mining district daily and the excite
ment that followed the first substantial
discovery a month ago does not diminish.
The owners of the Fairclough mine are
daily sending out a quantity of the de
composed gold-charged ore and when a
ton ha been brought to thi city, it will
be sent to a reliable assayer in San
Francisco aad upon bis findings largely
depends the future operations in this
district. Sample of the ore have as
sayed $42.20 to the too. It is the belief
of mining men that if a ton of the ore
assay proportionately with the samples
that have already been tested, that the
entire region of the Molalla in the neigh
borhood of Ogle Creek is rich with de
posits of tbd yellow metal.
PREPARING FOB A LOG IiOOX
VT. P. & P. Co. Is Constructing a
Weir Will Sot Cause Orerflow.
The Willamette Pulp & Paper Com
pany, having recently acquired title to
Rock Island in the Willamette river near
New Era, is building a weir that extends
from the lower end of the island to the
mainland on the east. By means of this
obstruction the company expects to pro
vide a enitable place for the booming or
if lo6s during the winter months.
People residing on the east side of the
river in the vicinity of the island are
alarmed that the building of the weir
will eauBe the overflow of the river dur
ing the high water season with the result
that damage to property will follow.
They have intimated that injunction pro
ceedings may be resorted to, that the
further building of the weir may be de
feated. The management of the mills
explains that the weir will not exceed in
height the highest stage reached by the
river last winter and say that it will be
so constructed that damage to property
cannot follow. The weir is being con
structed of twelve foot planks set four
inches apart. All water that will not
pass through the weir in the east chan
nel will be diverted to the main channel
which will be sufficiently deepened to
accommodate the increased volume. In
this wav the company expects to avoid
all possibility of any back water result
ing from the construction of the weir.
