DOUBT IS CLEARED UP.
Following the Bull M Ihe . Btat of
Oregon, through Frank Hcae,-Bpeial
counsel apiMilnted by Governor. Weat
to bring proceeainga 10 escneai me
money of the estate of F. A. William
son to the estate, application for a
writ of review waa made Tuesday by
Fred Hargreaves, administrator of the
estate of Hernhardt lialst, who claimed
that the body of the man found three
yeara ago near Oswego waa that of
hla brother. Christian Halat

tlon of all concerned, though Mra.
Robinson haa all along cofitended that
the dead man was her father, F. A.
Wlllamaon, and llalst, now dead,
Claimed the body waa tnat of hla
brother. "
Former County Judge D4m(ck. after
hearing the evidence In the caae threw
both clalmanta out of court, and sev
eral weeka ago County Judge Peatle
reveraed Dlmlck'a decision and or
dered the money paid over to Mrs.
Robinson, who again qualified aa ad
ministratrix.
Hargreaves contends that the Coun
ty Court can only be reviewed either
by a writ of review or by appeal, and
that decreea cf the County Court can
only be aet aside for fraud or col-
lualon. He charges that Judge lieatie
tiassed on the facta In the case, with
out being acquainted with them, and
he aska that Mrs. Robinson be re
quired to return the money to the
County Treasurer. Mr. Hargreaves
seeks to have the order of Judge nes

something distinctive. The proposition

VISIT Wff HOOD
DEEP SNOWS ENCOUNTERED EN

ONE OF GREAT BEAUTY. -
diaries n.T" field "and two''Bons,
Raymond and Wallace, returned to
Oregon City Monday night, after mak
ing a successful trip to Government
Camp, where they had the pleasure of
viewing old Mount Hood with Its
heavy mantle of snow, a sight that
very few people In this city have wit
nessed In mid-winter. The boy, who
are attending the University of Ore
gon, and who had made a record two
years , ago of making the quickest
climb to the sumlt of Mount Hood of
any party that summer, have been en-
Joying their week's vacation In this
manner.
- They - left here In - company - with
their father on Tuesday morning of
last week for Government Camp. Tbey
went aa far aa Boring on the O. W. P.
and from that place staged It to
Welches, making the remainder of
the trip to Rhododendron, a distance of
about four miles on foot. They
reached the Tavern about 5 o'clock
that night, where they remained until
the following morning, starting on
their trip to Government Camp, which
is about eleven miles on skis. At
Rhododendron the snow was 18 Inches
In depth, but further up on the moun
tain In the Laurel Hill district the
ground waa covered with two feet of
fresh snow, which made It difficult to
travel on skla, but the party reached
Government Camp that evening about
8 o'clock, and states that the scenery
waa grand, as they traveled by moon
light part or the time. The following
morning Mount Hood showed up In Us
glory, and never before presented a
more attractive sight than on this day.
At Government Camp the snow was
five feet In depth. The party remained
at this place Friday and Saturday.
While at Rhododendron Raymond and
Wallace Caufleld accompanied the old
mountaineer, Mr. Yocum, to the Sal
mon River, where the latter Is engaged
by the Mount Hood Railway Company
to read the water gauge. The party
went on skis, and covered a distance
of 12 miles, six miles each way.
Thla U Mr. Caufleld's first trip to
Mount Huod on skis, but his sons made
a successful trip a year ago, and en
Joyed the sport. This Is the second
party that has made the trip In this
manner successfully this year. 1

an hour and a half prior to taking the

Had the bill passed It Is claimed It

8TONE WELL SHOWS OIL AND GAS
AND INDICATIONS FOR PAYING
... FIND ARE ENCOURAGING..
STONE, Or.. Feb. 14. (Spl.) Ev
erything is all activity around our
oil well again after a short period of
Inactivity. The well has been cleared
of debris since It was shot ten days
ago and just what Is In the well Is
known to the owners and operators.
Oih and gas were secured In the
shooting but the quantity was not sat
isfactory for the drill has been again
started downward. The Indications
are flattering, it Is said, and now that
the company knows that there is oil
they are encouraged to go on deeper
In the hope that it may be found in
paying quantities.
While there is no ' secret made of
conditions as they exist still those who
are in a position to know most about
the well are the ones who are giving
out the least information. Hopes are
high that the drill will yet pierce a
flow that will make things livelyabout
this burg.
