Washington, Oct. 29. Upon fur
ther investigation into the timber
land frauds lecently unearthed .in
Oregon, the Secretary of the Inter
ior finds that in the quarter endin g
September 30 there .were in all
Oregon . land districts 625 "more
timber entries, covering loo.ooq
more acres, than were reported in
the quarter ending June 3i, while
the cash receipts fer the lastquar
ter exceed those of the preceding
quarter by $244,469 5o, If this
pace had not been checked the pub
lic timber lands in : Oregon would
goon have become a thing of , the
past. The Secretary has figured
out that if there was the proportion
ate activity in timber entries "in
each of the states as suddenly de
veloped in Oregon, there would not
be an acre of vacant timber land in
a year's time. ! . c s;
Not- only .'are ' these extensive
frauds injuring the general Govern
ment, but their successful perpetra
tion would throw ' into'- the hands
of private owners the best remain
ing public lands in Oregon and the
state would be deprived of; valuable
tracts under its grants. - To a cer
tain extent it is expected that the
state will 8S3ist the department in
bringing to justice the violators of
the timber land law. -. The Oregon
frauds are not dissimilar to those
discovered in Idaho and' Montana
two, years ago, which resulted in art
large nurhber of prosecutions. - -The
discovery of these wholesale
violations of the present law- will
a3t as an inducement to the Secre
tary to urge upon Congress at this
coming session tne necessity 101
the repeal of the timber and stone
act. " :. v; : '- ' - V

Washington, Oct 28 The fear

Manila Chief Quarantine Officer
Perry makes a conservative Lesti
mate that the caaes of choiera that
have actually occurred in the Phi
lippines since March 2oth last ag
gregate 75,000 with a mortality of
75 per cent. He says, under date
of September J 9, that the disease
has practically disappeared; from
these provinces first infected but
those most recently affected " are
suffering severely. The proxince
of Ilo Ilo and the adjacent island
of negroes, - ahd the " situation is
alarming.' Some of the towns in
these provinces have : lost ten per
cent of their population and ' the

there have been 4329 - cases and

Washington, Oct 28 The sec.
retary of the interior has just re
ceived positive evidence of "exten
sive frauds being perpetrated in
Oregon under the timber and stone
act, whereby, certain persons are
seeking to acquire absolute coutrol
of the richest timber lands in the
puUic domain of the . state. The
most flagrant violations of the law
have occurred in the Raseburg,
Lakeview, and Dalles - land districts-..
According to the secretarys
advices people are being shipped
into these districts, by carloads and
are immediately entering : the for
rested lands under the timber and
stone act." In other 5 instances,
large tracts are . being denuded of.
their timber by parties who are do
ing assessment work on what they
assert to be mineral developments.
There is strong prfloT that a large
number of the alleged mineral lo
cations are non-mineral . land and
have been made purely for the
purpose of acquiring the timber.
So positive and convincing is the
evidence now in the secretary's
hands that immediate steps are to
be taken to prosecute every one of
the fradulent entrymen. As a first
step Secretary Hitchcock today or
dered that all entries in Oregon ub.
der the timber and ' stone act be
suspended pending specific inves
tigation and directed that each
timber entryman be served with a
notice to show cause why his entry
should not be cancelled. :
London, Oct. 29. The efforts of
the promoters of the Morgan "tube"
railway schema to procuie the re
establishment of the parliamentary
statue of ' their " original franchise
bill, as a whole led to an hour's de
bate in the house of Commons to
night, the only result of which was
the withdrawal of the endeavors.
The Morgans intended to ask later
fortherecommitialof the bill grant
ing rights for their proposed "tube,"
but which was privately bought up
by the Yerkers interest.
Thomas G Ashton, who moved
the recommital ot the Morgan bill,
accueed the London United Comp
any of a dishonorable 'transaction,
and said he doubted whether so
"dirty a transaction" had ever been
entered into bv oarties coming be
fore Parliament. He said also' that
the House should resent these -actions
by passing the Morgan bill,
thus giving the Morgans a' chance.
Mr Ash ton's pioposition was gree
ted with "No, no." ' :
Mr Ashton's motion was opposed
by Sir John Dixson-Poyndal, ... who
said the Morgan scheme was now
a truncated affair, and" that it was
not within the province of Parlia
ment to intervene in the dissension
of rival speculators. James G Low
ther agreed that the Morgan promo
ters had been badlyused, but he
said their enemies were those of
tfieir own household. Sir Lewis
Mclvor. chairman" of -.the '. house
railroad committee, and others also
opposed the motion, which was fin
ally withdrawn. " ' . .

Portland, Oct,- 28. Unusually
tragic were the .circumstances- of
fhe death of John;B. Gilbert, killed
'banuay nigbtby a vicious boar.
I fXIL "I'll 1 I ... .
I a.uu vniiuoiua iiyo uu buo uui till
side of the Base Line road.' The
family consists' of the wife and three
children.", ; Mr Gilbert made a sp&
ciaTfy of raising hogs," and peris are
within sight 01 the. house, one can
see all over ; the pens, excepting
inside 01 the shed. The main pen,
about 30 by 50 feet, in which are
kepi the' vicious boar and a small
white one, is in plain view It was
here that the death ' struggle took
place. " Mr Gilbert "left the house
about 6 o'clock to do the chores. He
complained that the big boar J had
attacked the small white one and
nearly cut the latter tp pieces, and
said that he was going to separate
them: The big boar weighs about
300 pounds and has laige, sharp
tusks. " ' ' .7 ' ;
- When Mr Gilbert left for the pen
Mrs Gilbert laid down to take a
nap." Shortly afterward she awa
kened in a startled state of mind.
She ' looked around outside even
going as far as the peris, but it was
to dark to see anything. ' The nei
ghbors were aroused. The men sear
ched the pens with a - lantern, - but
discovered nothing. The next morn
ing the j.-w'ife telephoned to - her
brother, at Troutdale. He arrived
at the place at noon.- - Previous to
this the pens were serched again in
broad daylight, but the body was
huddled in a corner of one of the.
smaller pens and covered with mud,
so that it escaped observation. Mr
Edward3.said that he felt within
his inner consciousness - that ' the
man must be in" the pens some
where;' and began a - systematic
search. He soon found the body. '
A trail of blood told how the acci
dent had happened. When the boar
ripped open the leg with his tusks,
the blood spurted on the fence. J he
man evidently put his hand to "the
injured part as anyone would nat
urally dc, for the bloody imprint of
his hand is seen in several places
on the fence. -He walked about 10
feet along the fence, leaving the
marks of his hands, and then threw
himself over the low fence into an
other part of the pen a small in clo
sure about 20 by 25 feet. Here he
tried to rise to hia feet by grasping
the fence, as his hand marks show,
but loss of blood evidently caused
him to drop", exhausted into a cor
ner of the pen. : ".'-
:The infuriated : boar " continued
to try to get at it3 prey, for the
boards seperating it from the body
are pierced by several holes from
its' tusks. ' A sow and litter of pigs
had entrance from the sheds into
where the body was found, which
accounts for its mutilated condition.
While the right leg had been partly
devoured, this in itself is evidence
that the artery was severed," for it is
the nature of hogs to begin in such
cases where the blood attracts
them. - . .-
Butte, Mont, Oct. 28. James
Conn, a wealthy ranchman on Wil
low' Creek, was found shot to death
in his home today. His mother lay
upon the floor with her skull crushed
in and cannot live. The murderer
is believed to be the lone ' bandit
who held up the North Coast Lim
ited Friday morning. ---.A
memper of a threshing crew
on an adjoining ranch had occasion
to visit the Conn ranch. . When he
entered the farmhouse a terrible
sight presented itself. Ori the floor
with ihe brains ' oozing' from his
head, lay James Conn dead with a
ragged bujlet hole through his tern
pie.' Near him lay his mother, her
head crushed in with a blunt instru
ment presumably the butt of a re
volver. . ' . "
At the time of the hold-up of the
Northern Pacific train bloodhounds
were put on the trail of the robber,
and the dogs followed it for sever
al miles in the direction of the Wil
low. Creek "district, but lost "the
scent. Those familiar with, the
country declare that at the time of
robbery that in all probability c iha
outlaw would attempt to escape that
way as the country ia such as to af
ford an excellent opportanity to
evade capture being heavily tim
bered,. The discovery o the crirn
was made at i 4 tjilockthis after
noon, and officers are now , on the
scene. Near the stablea the thre3hT
ing men met a demented ' woman
who had lived with the Conn family
for some time. - This woman killed
her husband, about 20 years ago,
and it is suggested : that perhaps
she committed the tragedy. h
scene of the crime is also about 39
miles from Bearmouth,remot9 from
the wires, and details are. meager.
Portland, Oct 28 The numbar
of Mennonite arriving at the grand
central depot during the past few
months has occasioned considerable
comment. These people travel ia
groups and are inclined to settle m
communities where they can enjoy
their own society.. They are re
cognized as quiet, laM abiding citi
zens' and it is one of their boasts"
that a lawyer wonld starve to death
in anexclusive Mennonite commuu
ity. U ',";.--'' :'.::: r'-r: T'-
Last evening at the depot, Rev
David Hilty, a Mennonite evangel
ist, rested, awaiting the departure
of the train for Nampa, Ida. - His
somber black garb and broad-brim9
ned hat gave him a Quaker appear'
ance aud his sons were dressed as
plainly as he, and his wife wore tke.

the old style sunbonnetj and a dark' -
shawl thrown over : her shoulders."
Mr Hilty said he just returned
from Albany, . Oregon, four milea
east of which place a colony of
Mennonite farmers" flourished.
'Our religion dates back from
1649," he said, ' when Men no Si-1

established a sect in Germany. . A
colony of Mennonites 'started in
Pennsylvania - in William Penn's

we consider such to be vain and

- "The farmery who was irritated, -'

man, instead of striking-Jback, im- :
