HOW HERMANN SOUGHT VIN.
DICATION AGAINST THE
GRANT AD MINISTRATION.

Attempt to Burn ' her own
v House Highwaymen " " .
Hold up Roseburg
i Stage Other
fi. -'i' l :': News.- ". :"-
1 Reseburg, May 8. The present
is not tbe first inataDce in which
Binger Hermann, after disrrissal
from "a federal office has appealed
to the vote of the people for vindi
cation, v tie took exactly the flame
course during the administration of
President Grant. He was a young
man then. At tbe beginning of the
seventies, he was appointed regis
ter of - the Roseburg land office.
While serving in that capacity he
made - cash entry . for himself on
large tracts of government land.
This was contrary to law, and for
the offense, Receiver Hermann was
dismissed after serving .' but two
years nd one month - of the four
years term for which be was -appointed.
... j ;
It was but & short time after that,
until there was a state election.
Smarting under his dismissal, Mr.
Htrmann joined the independent
movement, was nominated for the
legislature, and elected, defeating
tbe regular republican nominee for
tbe place. The vindication sought
was thus obtained, and the act of
the Grant administration in dis-
toisBiog . Receiver Hermann for
making entry on tbe forbidden
lands, was accordingly discredited
in this locality. His friends here
declare that he will be elected, and
that his election will, in tbe eyes of
the big men from all over the coun
try at Washington, be a rebuke to
Hitchcock for Hermann's latest dis
missal. -They say, too, that when
Roosevelt "dimes into. Oregon that
be will be required to ask tbe re
publicans of the district" to stand
by Hermann. These friends say
that since Roosevelt is planning for
a rcnomination in 1904, that be
will be compelled for party reasons
to eay something in behalf of Her
mann, even though the removal of
Hermann as commissioner could
not have been effected without
Roosevelt's approval. -
The law under which Mr. Her
mann was dismissed from offioe
during the Grant administration is
section 452, United States Revised
Statutes, and is as follows: "Tbe
officers, clerks and employes in the
general land office are prohibited
from directly or indirectly
purchasing or becoming interested in
the purchase of any of the publio
land, and any "person who violates
this section shall forthwith be re
moved from his office."
The lands filed on, were large
tracts in township 36, South of
range two East. A part of tbe
lands were by cash entry and a
part by Agricultural College scrip.
Albany,; Or., ; May 5. District
Prosecuting Attorney J. N. Hart to
day caused the arrest of Mrs. Hunk
ers on a complaint sworn to by
Councilman C. H. Stewart. Mrs.
Munkers is charged with arson in
attempting to burn tbe ; dwelling
bouse in which she lived. ,
The fire occurred on Wednesday
evening, April 29, and a disastrous
conflagration was narrowly averted.
Keroseue had been poured liberally
over seme portions of the house,
and fires were started in half a
dozen places. The near proximity
of other dwellings made it a dang
erous location for a" fire.
Mrs.. Munkers waived examina
tion and was bound over to answer
tbe charge at the June term of the
circuit court. Her bonds were fix
ed at $1000, which she put up in
collateral until bondsmen oould -be
She is a prominent teacher in tbe
public schools, and has resided here
several years. Her husband, Geo.
Munkers, died about a year ago and
left her about $5,000 life-insurance.
She has a daughter about 10 'years
of age, and has hitherto taken an
active part in school and church
circles. "-: v. , -
About two years ago her brother,
Clyde Vaughn, was convicted of
assault with a dangerous weapon,
and is now doing a term in the pen
itentiary. Her coasin, Hank
Vangho, was a noted Eastern Ore
gon character and bad quite a rep
utation as a bold, bad man.' The
attempt at burning and succeeding
events have occasioned an intense
excitement. . ..
Roseburg i Or., May 6. About 9
o'clock labt night the regular stage
coming from Myrtle point to Rose
burg was held up by two men near
tbe foot of Camas Mountain, about
20 miles from here.'
Driver J. A. Sawyers, who is
quite deaf, was compelled to give
up bis revolver, and the three pas
sengers, F. Les, of Ceylon, Wis.,
and William McGrath,pf New
Richmond, Wis., timber men, and
H. H. Scovel, of . the Lloyd-Scovel
Iron Company, of San Francisco,
were lined up on the roadside and
one robber 6tood guard while the
other rifled tbeir pockets, securing
over $130, most of which was con
tributed by Scovel. The mail and
other valuables were not disturbed.
The highwaymen were ' both of
medium size and wore white masks
Duriog the search the robbers kept
up a hot fire of talk, remarking that
it was a shame to take the money,
etc., McGrath remarking that it
was a shame to rob a poor working
man, and asked for nough money
to pay his hotel bill, and the robber
gave him $1 50. Then Lee asked
for his watch, which he said was a
present from hia mother. The rob
ber returned it with $150, remark
ing be could pa; his hotel bill also.
Then Scovel cut in, saving, "I do
believe you fellows would hate to
see me left out here without a eent.
Can't you give me a dollar out of
that little purse of mine? '
v The robber opened the purse and
handed Scovel what be thought
was a dollar, but what was really a
$20 piece, out of Scoyel's supply of
gold. He then returned Scovel's
watch and all three purses.- Then
going to the driver, he took his
gun, telling him that was a danger
ous thing for a boy to play with.
The mails were not molested. Both
robbers then disappeared in the
brush, and the stage came on to
Sheriff Parrott has gone, put to
investigate and, if possible, appre
hend the robbers. - Tbe same stage
and driver were held up within a
quarter of a mile of the same spot a
few months ago. This is tbe fifth
time that a bold up has occurred
within the vicinity, of Hoover Hill,
and it is thought there is an organ

Glen Cove, L. IM May 5." It re
quired just 20 minutes today for
the peerless eup : defender Colum
bia to demonstrate that in a light
wind and beating to windward she
is a better boat than the Herre
shoffs new cup yacht Reliance.
Starting from a point to leeward
and slightly astern to the Reliance,
the Columbia sailed through the
new boat's lee, tacked across her
bow, and in the next leg of a mile
and a half increased her lead to
nearly a quarter of a mile. Tbe
Reliance then withdrew. When
the Columbia went through her lee,
the Reliance kept off and .voluntar
ily gave up the advantage of her
wind position, but she was none
the lees decisively and emphatical
ly outsailed. This was the first
brush between tbe rivals. The sea
was as smootbas a pond. The Re
liance held her position only a few
minutes, for as the breeze freshen
ed the Columbia drew up on her
rival in astonishing fashion, ran
through ber leeward, and in ten
minutes was leading the new boat
by lengths. The Columbia heeled
easily, while tbe Reliance stood up
much more stiffly, though carrying
more canvas. The Columbia went
ahead and steadily drew away,
seeming to foot faster and sail clos
er to the wind. ; She was a quarter
of a mile ahead after 20 , minutes'

London, May 6. Foreign Secret

"I say without hesitation," said
the foreign secretary, dealing with
the subiect in the House of Lords.
"that we should regard the estab
lishment of a naval base or a forti
fied port in the Persian Golf by
any other power as a very grave
menace to Great Britain's interests.
and we should certainly resist it
with all the means at our disposal.
Lord Landsdowne preceded this
explicit enunciation of British poli
cy by a review of the situation s
there, as it affected British inter
ests, contending that so far as tho
navigation of tbe Persian Gulf was-
concerned Great Britain held a po
sition different to that of other pow
