TERNOON AFTER SESSION".
. ' OF DAY AND HALF. ) V
Investigation by Grand Jury The
Loggers' Case Dismissed
County Tax Suit Argued
After a session of only a day and
a half, the March term of the cir
cuit court for Benton came to an
end shortly after one o'clock yes -
terdav afternoon. Judge Hamil
ton left at once by private convey
ance for Albany, whence he goes
to Portland. The last act of the
court proceedings was with refer
ence to the suit of Benton county
against the Oregon Pacific Colon
ization Company -for taxes six
years delinquent. The case was
argued and submitted, and in due
time a decision will be announced.
Of court, there was a brief
pemilinary session Saturday morn
ing, at which all business left over
from the November term was cleared
up Monday morning the regular
term convened with a grand jury
in attendance. The latter investi
gated the logger cases in which
Baker Brothers and Clarence Pow
ell were accused of cutting and re
moval of timber from lands, of an- j
other, on bmith Island.- ".Not a
true bill" was returned. An indict
ment was returned against R. H
Fawcett for larceny from a dwel
ling, and the disposition of the case
is told elsewhere. The grand jnry
examined witnesses with reference
to the unsuccessful effort of the as
sessor to secure from the president
a list of the deposits in the First
National bank, but tbok no action
in the matter.

"Washington, March 15. Joseph
i. Bristow, fourth assistant postmaster-general,
is pushing his in
vestigation into the practice in the
' -office of the assistant attorney-gen-'
ral for the post office department.
-He expects to get results this week.
T. C. Campbeil, the New York
'lawyer, formerly of Cincinnati, who
filed explicit charges against that
2 office, will be in Washington Tuei
.j.. - Wonoartdir and will ao Dear
before Mr. Bristow in support of
his charges.- ,
ramnhll oUimn to have docu
. -mentary proof that certain lawyers
fV.fi Assistant at-
torney-general for the postoffice de
partment, in collueion with that of
fice, have collected large sums from
get-rich-qucik concerns in various
parts of the country and particularly
from one Cincinnati concern, for le
gal opinions from the office of the
assistant attorney-general for the
postoffice department, that allowed
- them to use the mails for the circu

paring their circulars and advertise
ment in each form that., they .. were
passed by the law officers of the
I o.-t office department.
The turns of money it ia claimed

large. One man in Cincinnati says
he paid $25,000 down aLd ?2,0Q0 a

Buffalo, March 2o. It would not
surprise those who have been watch
ing the latest developments in the
Burdick murder case if Mre. Bur
dick, wife of the man who was mys
teriously murdered, should be plac
ed under arrest at any moment.
The finding of the letter from
Arthur Penitieli in which the latter,
acldres-ing Mis. Burdick, said that
he would be compelled to kill oar
j dick, furnished the police with an
imiortant clue wnicn mey nave
been following energetically.
Mrs. Burdick, whether or not she
knows anything of her husband's
murdtr, was undoubtedly the di
rect cause of , the Buffalo triple
tragedy in which Burdick, Pennell
and Mrs. Pennell were killed.
The expected arrest was not
made today, which leads to the be
lief that there is no foundation for
the report that Burdick was killed
by a policeman in Penny's em
ploy. Intpret now centers in Mrs. Bur
dick's forthcoming testimony wheD
the inqne-st is resumed.-
Redding, March 2 j. After sur
viving a desperate duel with knives,
in which he killed hi- opponent,
and was himself terribly carved,
Ie Barnes has been laid low by a
plain, 'ordinary blackberry pie.
Birnea is dying from the effects
of eating au entire pie yesterday.
Shortly after finishing the pastry
he was seized with violent cramps,
stitches which had been taken in
bis lungs and abdomen broke aad
th3 surgeon says his recovery is im
possible. A few weeks ago Barnes fought a
terrible duel with Bill Silverthorn,
in which the latter was killed.
Barnes was almost disemboweled,
and was at first supposed to be
dead. He regained consciousness,
however, and was on the high road
to recovery when he went against
tho blackberry pie, which has ap

8EVERE ATTACK OF GRIP.
Cured by One Bottle of Chamberlain's
. - Cough Remedy.
"When I had an attack of the
grip last winter (the second one)
I actually cured myself with one
bottle of Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy," says Frank W. Perry,
Editor ot the Enterprise Shortsville
N. Y. "This is the honett truth. I
at times kept from coughing myself
to pieces by taking a teaspoonful of
this remedy, and when tne cough
ing spell would come on at night
I would take a dose and it seemed
that in the briefest interval the
cough would pass off and I would
go to sleep perfectly free from cough
and its accompanying pains. To
say that the remedy acted as a
most agreeable surprise is putting
it very mildly. I had no idea that
it would or could knock out the
grip, simply because I -had never
tried it for such a purpose, but it
did. and it seemed with the second
attack of coughing the remedy
caused it to not only be of lees du
ration, but the pains were far less
severe, and I had not used the con
tents of one bottle before Mr. Grip
had bid me adeiu," For sale by

ATTACK PORTAGE RAILROAD
Says the Road Will Cost Half a
Million and Prove Useless ;
Real Estate men at Albany
Disturbed Other ,
Baker City, March 20. - ? The
Democrat an influential journal of
this city, scores the Portage rail
road appropriation made by the
last legislature. It says:
The enthusiasm is widespread
throughout Biker City and Biker
county over the invocation of the
referendum of the people for the
repeal of the recently enacted cor
poration tax law and portage rail
way bill. Every body is singing
the petitions, and word comes from
Union county and from Southern
Oregon that the enthufiasm re there
just as great as in Baker county.
1 he people ,are harnin tbattbelar-t
legislature is not one which entire
ly represented them. Many ' laws
are passed which are objectionable
to the ma?s?s.
It is desired, and it is almost ob
ligtaory, that the merchants and
ordinary business men sign thesi
petitions. Iheinterestsof theeafWu
pari of the state are at stike, Cip
ital 'will not come here and invest
when it isburdenedby such laws. The
lact is perfectly apparent that the
largest industry of Eastern? Oregon
is being cinohed-forr the purpos of
building a.tov thrown as a. eon, at
some of the-politicians-and grang
ers in the' middle Colombia river
ctuoties. There.is as much use
for a poitige railroad as them is
for a fifth wheel oa a wagon. Tue
United States government is now
at work building a canal between
The Dalles and Celilo, which isthe
only true solution of river trans
position to the inland Empire,
When you use a portage railway
and have to break bulk twice in
transit from, the interior to the
po nt 01 shipment, you destroy the
profits gained by river transporta
tion over rail.
Then why take $165,000 irom
the mining interests and -throw it
into a hole at The Dalle?, when it
is known to every responsible en
gineer that $165,000 will not build
one half of the projected road? The
bill, futhermore, provides nothing
for , the operation of the road
when it is completed. By the time
two or'three successive legislatures
have convened and have appropri
ated money for the deficiency in the
construction of the proposed road
and some $500,000 of the people's
money will have been spent and
the road put in operation the Uni
ted States canal will have been
completed. The mining men of
this state are a unit in their opposi
tion to both bills, swiDing " money
out of one industry' to support
another. ., ; '
It will . be seen when the next
general campaign comes on in the
state of Oregon that the people will
take a hand in the distribution of
their own money.
The Dalles, March 2o. Governor
Chamberlain, Secretary of State
Dunbar and State Treasurer Moore
made an inspection this morning of
the proposed route of the Portage
railroad which is to be constructed
by the state around the rapids of
the Columbia at Celilo.
The three officials came up from
Portland last evening and a special
engine and oar took them to Celilo
this morning. They were accom
panied by a number 01 prominent
citizens of The Dalles-
.The appropriation made for the
Portage railroad is $1 60,000. The
inspection made today is the first
step toward carrying the undertak
ing into execution. ' " j
"We are here simply to look over
the route," said the governor. "No
work can be done until ninety days
have passed from the adjournment
of the legislature, ?o as to give the
lenuired onnortunitv for invoking
the referendum. Our first step
then will be to obtain a survey and
estimate by competent engineers
and then bids for construction , of
the road will be received. We must
find out, of course, whether the
road can be built for the amount of
the appropriation." V
: The length of the fbad will be
about eight and a half-miles and it
is the generally - accepted opinion
that the most feasible route is 'be
tween' the O. R. & N. trcks end
the river, starting at the big eddy
four miles from The . Dalles and
ending abdVe the Taffe tannery.; at
Celilo. The route was carefully in
spected and frequent stops made in
order to allow closer, examination
of the topography. It is estimated
that for at last two miles the road
-must he, built, ,,oo,HresileS.wWch

Th:s question is a very important
onevfor if the bids exceed the a p

Albany, Or. M-.r 21 Several
Harriman immigration agents and
others in the employ of transcon
tinental railroad companies are
attempting to work a skin game on
tbei 0eg'jn real estate men and on
intending settlers. Several months
ago the citizens of Albany ente'
tained a number of the Harri
man agents, and at the meeting
a committee was appoin'ed to col
lect funds j and publish 75.000
copies of a pamphlec describing
Linn county. The money about
$800, was paid by Lion county
people tnd the books were to be
distributed free of charge ; by the
Harriman immigration agents in
the East. Both pariies to the con
tract have cnmplied'with it so far
as known, but now the immigra
tion agents who are paid a reg
ular salary by the ra lroad com I
1 anis. ' demand one half of all i
commission? collected by the real'
estate men. or threaten to plcej
the in'ending settlers in other
towns. A few weeks ago a real !
estate exchange was established in
this city through the eff irts of ' the j
Fame immigration agents and it
now transpires that their motive in;
pprfectiog thi? organization was to'j
centralize the real etate business
f a that it wnoli be easier to deal
with one central body in collect
ing, their part of the commission,
instead of watching a number of
Whethpr the railroad is a partner
to this scheme is uaknown, but we
think not. The transportation
lint-s have received fare from the
intending spflers and when . they
locate on their lines they pay daily
tribute to the same companies. If
the railroad companies should now
attempt to exact additional money
from the settlers and real estate
men it would be a just cause for
retaliation. The immigration
agen's have also requested the real
estate men to raise the price of
lands listed, so as to cover their
commissions. The Albany real es
tate men recent this undue ' inter
ference in their business and will
take up the matter with the head
officials of the Harriman lines.
Portland. March 21. The Port
land Telegram says editorially:
those who believe in the doctrine
of prosperity by means . of tariff
onl v must be surprised by the
growth ol trade Between rorro
he United States. Sta
tistics issued by the Treasury JJe
nartment show that in i8q7 the
imports into this country from the
island were less tnan $2,030,000.
In 1902 there were $9,634,176. In
1897 we sold the Porto Rican pro
ducts worth a little more than $2,0
ruvnnn. Tn TQ02 we' sold them
$12,000,000 worth. In view of
these ngures the question naturally
n i-isfva. if our exnorts to Porto Rico
can be increased sixfold in four
years by free trade, why would
not a more reasonable tariff expand
our exports to all the rest of the
world.' As has been well said, com
merce follows the line of less re
sistance, like all other kinds of
motion. Stimulus . of freedom

Sanger of Colds and Grip.
The greatest danger from colds
and grips is their,,- resulting in
pneumonia. " If reasonable care is
used, however, and Chamberlain's
Cough Remedy taken, all danger
will be avoided. Among the tens
of thousands who have used this
remedy for these diseases we have
yet to learn of a single case having
resulted in pneumonia, wnicn snow
conclusively that it is ; a certain
preventive of that dangerous disea

other treatment. ' It is pleasant

HANDY UOOK OF INSULTS.
Thonianda of Fl8rht-Ca.uliB Cptthetia
Put Into a. Special Dictionary
by a German. '
Herr Schuch, a German author, has
compiled a dictionary of 2,500 insulting
expressions, carefully tabulated, in
dexed and classified. The work, on
which Herr Schuch has spent years of
labor, is called the Schimpfworter
Lexikon and is divided into five general
heads insults for men, insults for
women, insults for either sex, insults
for children and collective insults for
syndicates, groups and corporations.
Herr Schnch, with that minute discern
ment Of the searching German, has
subdivided these classes into smaller
ones, so that wfcen one wishes to call
his friend or enemy a name it needs,
but a short consultation with the book
to find the exact epithet or phrase
which will fit the case. This work
would have been invaluable to Mis
sissippi river pilots in the old days,
pnd even now the teamster may regard
it as a welcome addition to his library.
