CHARGED WITH MURDER OF
HIS FATHER IN CROOK
Had B en on Bad Terms With Hia
Father Was Buried Only

Prineville, Or., Sept. 20. C. M.
Doukel, ot D.-scbutes, was arrested
in Prineville, rnday afternoon, by
the sherm ot tnis county, and is
sow in the county jail at this place
charged with th9 murder of his
father sometime between the 13th
and 17tb of September. The time
for the preliminary examination
has npt been pet.
Quite a feeling has been arous?d
again s i. the young man by the peo
ple living in the vicinity of the mur
der. The young man himself while
not denying that he had frequent
troubles with his father, says becan

the time he was away irom camp
between the l3th and the time he
was present wnen they found - his
Inquiry at tbe snerin a office as

tb-v crime brought the ii formation
, that as the coioner's jury say a
Duarder has been'comoiitted, his of
fice in connection with the district
attorney have the matter in hand
and have nothing to say regarding
it at present. ", :.'..'. v:.-.
S. P. Donkel was shot behind the
left ear, and bis body was then bur
ied in a grave about three feet deep.
Over this a fire was built for the
purpose of either obliterating all
trace of the newly made grave or in
hopes that tbe heat from the fire
would cause tbe disintegrating of
the body. DjnktTs utory is that,
upon missing bis lather, he insti
tuted a search for the . body. ?" He
was attracted to the spot where the
fire bad bten built. v - -
, In prodding around through the
, sslfcs he noticed that the earth uo- j
der.ne.ith was not firm, and, upon I
i&TCeiigating, discovered that it
Bad been freshly, dug. He dug j
- down some dictat es when he came
to a boot which he recognized as
belonging to his father, and then
' made the discovery that the buct
. incbaed the foot. While stopping
to investigate further, he immedi
ately came to Prineville and in-
. &f med the coroner, who went to
tba soer e and finished exhuming
" Djnkel's money was found to
tave disappeared, and the theory is
that the murder was committed for
tbe purpose of robbery. The coro
ner's jury decided that the deceased!
came to his death at the hands of
persons to them unknown, and that
t& cause was from the desire to
... conceal tbe crime of robbery.
, St. Helens, Or., Sept. 20. S. P,
Donkel. who was recently murder
ed in Crook county, was a- well
known resident of this county un
til a coupla of years ago. For ma
ny years he lived near Mist, in the
lower Nehalem Valley, and vwas
held in high f steem by .a wide cir
cle of friends. ;
- Baker City, Or., Sept. 19. A
particularly distressing ecene was
enacted at the parish house of Fath
er Uesmereas of tbe congregation of
St. Francis at noon; The principle
trouble was caused by Biebop Chas.
J. O'Reilley, Deputy Sheriff Hem
pie, Father Desmereas and bis de
mented sister. "
' Deputy Sheriff Hemple went to"
the parish home to serve papers in
a suit of ejectment againtt -Father
Desmereas. The ejectment was
caused by the orders of Bishop O'
Reilley, the authority in the y dio
cese. Father Dasmereas resented,
disputed and opposed the deputy
sheriff. He drew a gun and stood
the officer cff. Deputy Hem
ple is a small man, , but .he took
charge of the resisting priest and
finally, with assistance, landed the
warlike priest in jail.
The demented sister of Father
Desmereas was arrested later.
Charges of insanity were filed, a
gainst her this afternoon and now
she,, with her brother, is also an in
mate of the county jail. V
Father Desmereas created no lit
tle excitement as he was being plac
ed in jail by the deputy sheriff. He
shouted and raved in his agony:
"My God, don't put me in jail with
out letting me see an attorney. My
sister, I must see her. I must go
back and get her."
First street was lined on both
sides with people who were attract
ed by the excitement of the scene.

Dr. Darrin, the specialist at Al

his cures are eloquent tributes to
his ability.-Independence Enterprise
Judge J. J. Whitney, of this city
has been taking treatment from Dr.
Darrin for his hearing and is sur
prised himself at . the quick and
complete restoration of his hearing,
Hi letter to the public speaks
much for the successful treatment
of this specialist. Herald,, Aug. 3O,
As will be seen by an article on
the first page of this paper, the em
inent physician, Dr. Darrin, is a
gain in this part of the Willamette
valley, being located at Albany to
remain until the first of December.
During the doctor's stay in .Salem
last Summer he made many mar
velous cures, and. the sick, and af
flicted of this section can congratur
late themselves upon being able to
take advantage of his remarkable
ek 11 in the treatment of ? disease.
There' has always" been a preju
dice against advertising doctors,
but Darrin, now at Albany, has ov
ercome this prejudice and has , re
ceived patronage from ! the most in
fluential citizens ,, of tbe , county.
When, such men as W. W Parrish,
of Sodaville, and Judge Whitney,
of Albany, tes ify to his merits : as
a healer he is surely entitled to the
consideration of the suffering pub

Street Cars as Disseminators of In

Vitiated Air and Expectorations Rea.

... fnl Source of Co-ntnsrlon

In the larger cities' of this country
the street car is as potent a factor in
the dissemination on communicable
diseases as many of those usually cata
logued in the standard works of hy
giene. In these larger centers of popu
lation 'the condition is one of an ex
cessive number of passengers crowded
into a limited, number of cars. In some
cities, this continues throughput thf
entire day, and in all of them during
the morning and evening hours. Dur
ing the period of congested traffic, the
cars are crowded -to the limit, every
seat being occupied, and the aisles and
rear platforms literally, packed with
oil classes of pur variegated popula
tion, says the Interstate Medical Jour-
nal. ' .J' ;.: 'j,''
The ventilation of these cars is in
ferior, both on account of inattention
to this important matter on the part
of the builders of this class of rolling!
stock, and. also because the passenger
differ so widely as to the proper tem
perature' and - circulation . necessary!
to their comfort. , .
- Tuberculosis is undoubtedly propa:
gated through the medium of . these
cars, which become' infected by the
promiscuous expectoration indulged
in by consumptives, notwithstanding
notices of warning. Hannum.of Cleve
land, recently examined 25 specimens
of sputum found in street cars (15,
from the interiors and ten from the)
rear platf orms) : the tubercle bacillus
was present in three instances. Other
specimens showed the pneumococcus
and the bacillus influenzae.
' These conditions, the persoij-to-per-
son contrn-et, and b .hwpthjnsr ft
vitiated air frequently laden with
contagious exhalation and with dust
from dried sputum, re most favora
ble to the distribution of contagious
diseases. Of course it is only prob
lematical as to the number of small
pox cases which were infected
through these conditions during the
recent epidemic, but it is certain that
but: few better opportunities of -infection
are offered than through the
street-car contact -of all ' classes.
Other transmissible diseases can
very easily be, and no doubt are, Com
municated in, the same way. i ..
; The solution of this problem istnot
easy.. ' Street railway companies are
not inclined to- relieve the present
situation without compulsion. Fiealth
officers, however, have authority over
the sanitation of these' pubjfo con
veyances. This - authority-- inj most
municipalities gives- sufficient i power
to prevent.' unduer .overcrowding' of
cars , when such prevention wo.uld be
for the "protection of public fiealth.
When necessary, as in times '. of a
general epidemic, such, autliority
should be exercised.' . Under alt cir
cumstances regular " disinfection of
street cars should be practiced Ci an
efficient manner. In this way'- the
cars can be made biologically clean,
and the health of the community bet
ter protected. There is Just as much
occasion for this procedure- ss there
is for - the disinfection of Pullman
cars, now energetically practiced at
di fferent points; Investigation - has
developed the fact that there, is but
one city in the . country, Philadel
phia where any pretense is made of
d'infectipn ,.of street cars.. , The
Union Traction, company of that city
dvnfects its cars with carbolic acid.
This possibly answers for the killing
of bacterial Jife pn the floors and
wrlls of the cars, but does no good
for the contaminated places where
dust has settled, and which- nothing
but a gaseous agent lyould reach.

out of the banana business. Revenues
do ,'noi accrue alone from the sale of
the. fruit, for the leaves are used for
packing; the v juice,-being strong in

The snipe, properly Wilson's snipe,
Gallinago Delicata, .. but- commonly
, known as Knglish snipe and wrongful
ly called half a dozen other names, is
a widely distributed species.' It visits
every slate at some season; its north
ward migration extends within the
arctic circle, while it is known to go
southward to northern South America
and the West Indies. Comparatively
few of the: birds which move north
ward from February until May breed
south of the international' line. - It is
quite . true . there are breeding grounds
at various points of the northern,
states, but the- great breeding, range
extends ' from latitude 42 degrees
north to some undetermined point
much nearer the pole than most
sportsmen will venture.
; Some time in September the first
south-bound birds : pass below the
Canadian grounds, and soon most of
the suitable marshy bits of east and
west have their share ' of long-billed
prizes. Then begins, an astonishing
attack which extends from .ocean to
ocean and generally sweeps south
ward from .Canada 'to California.

ben condemned through the bad faith
of a third person, through false testi

which condemned him ' is not respon
sible), the indemnity will , be less, but
at least-he will have. the WherewitJial to
