As a platform man, Cooke, occupies
a unique and Interesting field, one In

public again, F. Hopkinson Smith goes
for only a few datea each year, and
the number of those who give success
ful author-reading la very small.
-Along with hla success on the plat
form, Mr. Cooke has won even greater
consideration as a writer. Cdoke set
about writing of his own time, for peo
ple of his owntlme. and he accom
plished his purpowe with great credit.
In such poems as "Don't You," "Plug"
and "How Did You Die r men recog
nized the spirit of the time, caught

has made men read poetry.

house by the ReVJ. O. Staats. It Is
unusual for- license to nmrry to be
Issued on Friday, Ann for one to be
Issued 'on "Friday the thirteenth" Is
something unheard of here. - Mr. and

were not In the least superstitious,
and they thought "Friday the thir

agreed with them. The bridegroom Is

written to J. F. Mclndoe, Major,
Corps, C Piled States engineers, In
charge -of the propoaed-wurk, that It
will be damaged to the extent of tl
000,000. The following Is a part of
the letter of President Hawley to Ma
"That the construction of proposed
canal and locks No. 1 would complete
ly annihilate our plant and involve
damage to our. company to the extent
of one million dollars; that) the con
struction of proposed canal and locks
No. 2 would destroy. our pulp plant
and make the value of the entire plant
worthless and Involve damage In the
amount, of one mlllon dollars; that.
aside from this, the government
should also indemnify our company
against all damagea that would be
claimed by the Portland Railway,
Light A Power Company against us,
arising from our Inability to take
water power for tbe ensuing forty-
five years under existing teases; for
which tbe Hawley Company would
convey to tbe government all title
held by It by deed, lease, or otherwise,
In, and to the land embraced wltnin
the side lines of plan No. 1 or plan
No. 2, as ahownn blue print sub
mitted; Water Would Be Shut Off.' 'v
"That the plan No. 1 would com
pletely shut off tbe watej aupply to
our power wheels and appropriate the
basin, which we need for iater craft
and aa booming grounda for logs, be
sides, appropriating, land' owned and
leased by ua, thereby absolutely des
troying our business.
"That the plan No. 2 would appro
priate the land leased by ua from the
P. R., L. A P. Company for a new
pulp mill site, upon which we are ob
liged for forty-five years, to pay a
heavy andual .rental for power, and
would appropriate our wharf and oth
er grounda leased by us for a like
period and would .otherwise damage
us so .is to prevent a continuation of
our business." , '
Hydraulic engineers who have been
going over the proposed routes on tbe
east aide, at the request of Interested
persons, have made a report of the
amount of the damages which may be
aaked in case the canal Is built. They
say the building of the canal virtually
would annihilate the water power of
the Hawley Pulp tt Paper Company
and the Crown-Columbia Pulp ft Pap
er Company, aa well as the enjoyment
and exercise of their rights and privi
leges obtained from the Portland RaiLl
way. Light ft Power Company under
their leases, covering a long term of
years, ending December 31, 1954, with
right of renewal of the righta and
privileges for a further term of years.
Tbe engineers say the plans guaran
tee no protection to Oregon City, the
mills and other property, including the
county road and tbe electric railway
between Canemah and Oregon City.
It is said all will suffer damage by
freshets and floods.
Navigation Is Threatened.
"This damage," aald one engineer,
"will be caused by the flood level
being carred down into the canal and
basin inside the high cribbing. This
cribblug forms an outside wall to
make navigation possible during high
water by keeping the canal level with
he river above; otherwise navigation
would be impossible during high wa
ter. As no guard lock Is provided, It
follows that tbe upper river freshet
will find its way Into the canal and
ImHin, along the county road and elec
tric railway from Oregon City to
Canemah, and at the mills and .the
lower end of Main street, doing great
damageto all property. On the other
hand, should the plana be modified
and a guard lock be built to protect
against freshets and flood water, the
guard must connect with the shore
and In doing so will cut off all water
supply, except for the operation of
navigation." ' .
With regard to the right-of-way the
engineers declare that the one pro
nosed cannot be deeded to anyone ex-
J cept aubject to the leasehold rights of
the Crown-Columbia Pulp ft paper
Company .and the Hawley -; Pulp ft
Paper Company. These corporations
hold both rights to property and wa
ter .nse from the Portland Railway,
Light ft Power Company, under leases,
which. It la said, will be seriously af
fected by the. canal, if built. ,

1 " SPECIALTY. ,
EVIDENCE AGAINST SUSPECT IN
. QUADRUPLE KILLING GROWS
'THIRD DEGREE' TO BE TRIED TODAY
Boy S'y They Ware With Prisoner
Morning of Tragedy And That
They Heard Woman '
The evidence against Leopold Holm
berg, a Swedish Bailor and roust
about, held a prisoner In Portland In
connection with the killing of tbe Hill
family at Ardenwald Station June 9,
waa strengthened Friday afternoots
when Harry Howard and James Haw
kins, the boy accusers, without assis
tance pointed out tbe Hill home. The
boye were taken to a point near 'Ard
enwald Station by Sheriff Mass and
deputy aheriffa of Multnomah county
and. told to find tbe house. The boys
passed the house., but. on the return
trip pointed It out One of them,
however, said he was In doubt, be
cause the house looked somewhat
darker tbe morning of the murder.
Sheriff Maas and the Portland auth
orities will pat tbe prisoner through
the "third degree" today, and will
again question the boys. It Is believed
If the sailor Is guilty he wlU confess.
Holm berg waa arrested at Tbe Dalles,
soon after he and the boys were seen
stealing potatoes. He denies he Is
guilty, and says he met on of the
boys only two days ago and the other
one about two months ago.
Screams of Woman Heard. '
It la declared by the accusers they
were with Holm berg tbe morning of
the crime, and that they left Port
land tbe night previous to rob a house.
The boys say they hid In the brush
near the Hill home while Holm berg
went to the house to rob It; that they
heard screams shortly after he left
them and when he returned his cloth
ing and hands were bloody. They de
clare that be had since refused to
allow them to leave him, and frequent
ly told them If they said anything
about the case he would kill them. It
was feir that he would carry out his
threat, they assert, that caused them
to keep silent tin til they were assured
be could not harm them.
he boya are- aomewhat hlzy In
their statements as to the dates they
went to Portland and as to when they
met each other, but they have been ao
long "on the road." and datea meant
so little to them that this la not con
sidered very material. Their story
also, fails to tell of the ax used to
commit the murder, which was stolen
from the house of a neighbor of the
Hill family, about one-fourth mile
It la possible, aar the "boys, that
Holm berg went out and stole the ax
while they were waiting, as he was
aiisent for five minutes or longer, and
tney think he visited some other house
In the neighborhood while he was
prospecting the ground. But they saw
Ax Probably Hidden.
AVhen Holmberg went to the house,
ttfey say, he carried a bundle, but it
was not long enough to contain an
ax. ' One theory la that he could have
concealed the ax under his coat, an
other that when he stole the ax he
secreted It sear the Hill home and
took it from the secret place after
sending the boys to the rear of the
house to wait for him. N
Evidence at the scene of (ae crime
Indicated that the murderer spent
some time in tbe house. The story of
the boya agrees with this theory. They
had no means of telling time, but be
lieve they waited half or three quart
ers of an hour for htm. The boya aay
they believe the crime was committed
between 2 and 4 o'clock In the morn
ing, which also agrees with tbe
theories heretofore worked out.
When Holmberg came from the
house, say the boya, his clothing was
