JACK LODER IS
BOY PLAY8 WITH A DYNAMITE
CAP AND WILL PROBABLY
LOSE RIGHT EYE.
CRIMINAL CARELESSNESS APPARENT
While Parent Are At Luncheon, Their
8on'i Childish Curiosity Cause
Him to Play With Pow
Jack Nxler, the only child of Attor
ney and Mr. John W. Loner, was
frightfully Injured Saturday afternoon
by the explosion of a dynamite cap
that the little fellow found on the
front porch of the lder residence on
Center street. The force of the ex
plosion severely lacerated tho right
side of -the boy' head and he will
probably lose the sight of his right
eye and may become disfigured for
life a a result of the accident.
Center street I being Improved and
the workmen have boon using dyna
mite In blasting out tho rocks. Since
thl work ha been In progres Mr.
Iodpr has been very careful and has
warned her son more than once not
to play In tho street or to go Into al
most certain danger.
At 1 o'clock Saturday afternoon,
while Mr. and Mrs. I)dnr were fin
ishing their luncheon, the boy Jumped
from the table and went out on the
wide veranda to play. He picked up
tho dynamite cap and with boyish
curlofilly took It Into tho basement to
Investigate. Mr. and Mrs. Loder
heard a hammer pounding, and sud
denly the boy uttered a terrible
scream and IiIb horror stricken par
ent rushed to the scene to find their
son In agony, but conscious, and able
to tell them where he found the ex
plosive. Dr. M. C. Strickland waa hurriedly
summoned and the Injured lad waa
rushed to a Portland hospital, where
his wounds received attention.
It Is apparent that some one has
been criminally careless In leaving a
dynamite cap where It would fall Into
unskilled hands. It Is not known how
the cap was brought to the porch, un
less It had previously been placed
there. There Is no susplcon, however,
that harm was intended and the un
fortunate occurrence is probably due
to the carelessness of someone.
FARE FROM PORTLAND
RAILROAD COMMISSION ORDERS
FOR DUNN CASE.
The Railroad Commission will have
a public hearing In Oregon City Feb
ruary 22, unless the date Is changed,
to listen to the complaint of M. E.
Dunn against the Portland Railway
Light & Power Co., in which Dunn,
who Is a merchant here, charges that
the fare from Oregon City to Portland
Is excessive. This fare is 25 cent3,
and Dunu thinks It should be not more
than 15 cents. The Railroad Com
mission evidently lost sight of Wash
ington's birthday in fixing the date of
the bearing, which may be changed to
Thursday, February 23.

ceived the following letter from the

There were several musical numbers,
with two short dialogues, after which
Prof. F. J- S. Tooze made a talk on
new methods in education.
Prof. Tooze spoke for over an hour
and those present were greatly Inter
ested In what he had to say. Among
other things he told of the new meth
ods that have been Installed, of others
that should be installed and of others
that have not been tested out as yet

HEIR 10 LARGE 81
SAYS JAMES PETTY
UNCLE LEAVES $750,000 TO BE DI
VIDED AMONG FIVE OF HIS
James Petty, one of the well-known
residents of this city, who resides on
the Clackamas river, has fallen heir
to a large amount of money. At the
time of the death of Mr. Petty's uncle
the will which be left was to the ef
fect that when there were five heirs
the estate was to be divided. At the
time of his death there were seven
heirs, and as the number has now got
ten down to five the estate Is now to
be divided to the remaining heirs. For
some time Mr. Petty and bis brother,
Joseph, resided at Astoria, but the
health of Joseph being poor he decid
ed to return to the East, and James
came to Oregon City, where he haa
made his home on the Clackamas river
near Stone ever since, following the
vocation of a horsetrader.
A short time ago Mr. Petty was ap
prised of the money left him, his share
of which will be 1130,000, as the estate
amounted to $750,000, and Is to be di
vided Into five shares. Mr. Petty has
been receiving remittances from the
estate during the past few years, and
his attorney wrote him that this would
stop pending the settlement of the
property. Mr. Petty Informed the at
torneys that he would prefer some of
the money now, amounting to about
$2000, and upon Its arrival he would
leave for the East, and assist In the
settlement. This amount was received
by Mr. Petty, who will start shortly
for New York,, and will Induce his
brother to return with him and make
his home in the West. .
