MORE LAND FRAUDS

moval of the United States Com
missioners H. W. Reed of Bend,
Crook county; J. O. Haymaker of
Bonanza, Klamath county, and J.
VV. Haymaker of Bly, Klamath
county, says the Journal. Persons
more or less acquainted with the
operations of land agents ' say that
their shady transactions are old
stories not alone in Oregon, but in
every timbered state in the, Union.
The removal of the three commis
sioners, however, sets the machine
ry of justice moving, and it is ex
pected that before many weeks,
fraudulently inclined persons en
joying government positions will be
severely dealt with by the Federal
Tbe three men removed, by Judge
Bellinger yisterday are creatures of
bis own appointing, and it is said
today that no more than a sugges
tion on the part of the inspectors
now working under the direction of
the department of the interior was
necessary to cause the Federal
judge to oust these men whom he
appointed from then jobs.
It cannot be ascertained the na
ture of the charges filed against the
three commissioners, but at tbe dis
trict attorney's office it is suggested
that serious complaints have .been
Last October Secretary of the In
terior Hitchcock determined to have
investigated the many 'complaints
made by citizens of Oregon, Wash
ington, Idaho and California to the
effect that outrageous frauds were
again being practiced by land com
missioners in their respective states,
It was openly charged at that time
that gross fraud in taking acknowl
edgements was being practiced
Several pertinent cases were point'
ed out where persons desiring to lo
cate were not required to prove up,
but by paying certain sums into
the hands of commissioners delay
and trouble w.ere eliminated. One
instance is cited where a resident
of an Eastern city gained land in
Curry county, Oregon, without ev
en the formality of visiting its lo
cation. Another practice of fraud
particularly lucrative to the gov
ernment schemers was to accompa
ny a person on a certain piece of
land on which he desired to locate
and then tell himby paying $50 or
$60 further trouble in the matter
would be unnecessary. That is, the
prospective locator would not be
required to make another visit to
bis possession as blanks already
filled in would be furnished him
These and many ,more'violation8 of
the law were reported to the gener
al land office and it is eaid that
Binger Hermann was called into
council and suggested that an in
vestigation was unnecessary, as
charges of similar character ' had
been made for years. Mr. Her
mann's, dilatory proceedings after
the matter was brought to his no
tice were not approved by the ad
ministration ' and it is said that
without regard to him or his advice
an investigation was begun by
sending special agents into Oregon,
California and Washington. Since
last fall these agents have devoted
all their time to inspecting 'the va
rious land offices in the various
states, with the result that some
very startling transactions of a
fraudulent nature have been
brought to light.
Bringing the subject home to Or
egon and Portland, it has been as
certained beyond question of doubt
that so brazen have become some
commissioners that they have tak
en acknowledgments of posses
sions to Portland in person. The
law states that all who have taken
up public land must appear in per
son before the land commissioners
and show their right to the proper

Miss Marie Ware, the United States
commissioner - at this place, has
been under the .displeasure of
the general land ' office has
has been known for two or three
weeks. Her resignation is no sur
prise to those on the inside of re
publ can politics. It has been op
enly stated several times during
the last few days that Miss Ware's
position would soon be vacant. She
was courteously given the oppor
tunity to resign, which at first she
hesitated todo. Whetherjthe charges
against her were of a very serious
character is not known here, but
the developments recently made in
the land office leads many o be
lieve that Miss Ware was mixed up
in some -unusual transactions,
whether, knowingly or innocently,
cannot be charged. . Those who are
in full possession of the facts in the
matter will not talk and so the
matter rests. .
Paris, April 5. A paper publish

bilist, as saying that Count Zboro

very nervons since a fortune-teller
four days ago advised hin not to
start in to-day's race, predicting
that it would prove fatal to him.
" Figaro's correspondent at Nice
confirms the report that Count
Zborowski had a presentment that
something was about to befall him.
He says the Count hesitated at the
start, saying to several friends 'I

however, that jno ordinance is to be

Buffalo, April 9 Justice Mar
phy and District Attorney Coats
worth held a conference today on
the Pennell inquest which will be
gin Friday afternoon. ' The course
of the public inquiry so far as it
could be discussed beforehand, was
settled. The inquests on Mr. and
Mrs. Pennell are to be held jointly
Tbe last known statement of Pen
nell in his own defense in which
he says a woman killed Burdick at
midnight is to come out.
The question of suicide or ac
cident is not to be tried out, so far
as the district attorney is concern
ed. That part of the case will be
directed by Justice Murphy.
The letters Pennell wrote, the
statement he left behind, and all
other papers that in any way touch
upon or pertain to the affairs of
Burdick are to be brought out, if
the authorities can get at.them Pen
nell 's detective reports on the
shadowing of Burdick, also to come
out, unlass they have found their
way into hands beyond the reach of
the court. - The inquest will prob
ably two days.
It was intimated today that in
the event that those interested in
the Pennell estate are called upon
at an official inquiry todivulge any
information as to Pennell'a finan
cial operations in the East an ef
fort will be made to show that the
money which he obtained from
his friends and relatives was in the
nature of legitimate loans.
In other words it may be as
serted that funds to the amount of
about $200,000 were advanced to
him without any security what
ever, His ! attorney, .Wallace
admits that Pennell had no se
curity to give for such loans.

of the warning of a fortune teller,
two deaths resulted here today in
an effort to reduce at auto records

automobile hill climbing race be

The accident occured during one
of the trials along the Cronicha
The automobile rushing along at
a speed of fifty miles an hour, struck
a small rock in the road at a sharp
turn, swerved and threw Count
Zborowski and Baron de Pallange
against the wall.
Witnesses of the start of the race
say Zborowski, wore white kid
gloves which prevented him from
having a firm grasp of the brake.-
ine acciaent occurred at tne nrsc
turning of the road. The shock
was terrific, and Zborowski was
shot from his car and struck the
wall beside the road with his head
about six feet from the ground. He
fell to the ground dead with his
arms outstretched, his skull smash
