LAND CASES DRAG SLOWLY.
Three Out of a Hatch of 75 Nearly
Done Nctt Contests.
OREGON CITY, Or., Nov. 7. The tRking
of testimony in the contest of Charles K.
Hays against 75 applicants for timber land
In Tillamook County drags slowly along.
Three cases have been taken up, and In
no case has the contestoe appeared per
sonally. The attorney acting for the en
trymen cross-questions the witnesses of
contestant at tedious length, but offers
no testimony in opposition. Three of the
cases, those of Sollie Smith, Mors H. Lar
sen and Lavina B. Coates, are expected
to be concluded this week. That of Lar
sen will probably be ended tomorrow.
The contest filed by G. O. Nolan yester
day covers the same ground as that of
Hays, now In progress. While this new
contest could not be rejected, the appli
cation to give it precedence over Hays
was not allowed. G. O. Nolan is a brother
of Oak Nolan, who is cashier in the bank
of the Thayers at Tillamook, and among
the contestees is G. O. Nolan's own
brother. Oak. Just what Is desired to be
accomplished by this new contest 1b not
quite clear, if It Is made in good faith.
MOT FIGHT FOR MINING CLAIM.
Of Peculiar Interest, Because It In
volves Boundary-Line Question.
VANCOUVER, B. C, Nov. 7. A case
of peculiar Interest In connection with the
boundary line dispute at Mount Baker
will be in the courts shortly. It appears
that several Americans from Portland
cwned a valuable claim, and had It record
ed on the American side of the boundary
l.ne in the American office at Sumas.
Hardy Bros., of Chliliwack, jumped their
stakes, and also recorded on the American
&lde. Later It was found that the claim
was on the Canadian side of the bound
ary, and the Canadian jumpers restaked
it and recorded it in the Canadian office
at qhllliwack. A few days later the
American owners on the original record
tame along, and also restaked and re
corded on the American side. Now the
Americans are suing for the possession
of the property, a finding that the Cana
dians have no right to the claim.
Other claims in the seme district are
In much of a similar position, and the de
cision In this matter is being locked for
ward to with eagerness.
BIG MIXING SUIT OX.
Question nt Issue Is "Whether a Deed
Was Not In Reality a Mortgage.
BOISE, Idaho. Nov. 7. At Weiser today
the trial was begun of the case of Gran
ville Stuart vs. A. M. Holter, Massena
Bullard, Samuel Hauser, Charles W.
Whitcomb, J. C. Rogers, F. W. Sharp and
Eugene T. Wilson, receiver of the First
National Bank of Helena, Mont. The
value of the property In dispute viz., a
seven-sixteenths interest In the Peacock
and White Monument, and eleven-thirty-seconds
in the Helena, is alleged to be
$1,000,000. Ex-Governor Hauser is the
defendant principally Interested. Wilson
Is brought In as a sort of intervenor rep
resenting the interest in the bank, and
denies in his answer that Hauser ever
settled the indebtedness of Stuart to the
bank by paying over to the bank a por
tion of the consideration for the alleged
deed given Hauser by Stuart. Stuart
Meeded the property to Hauser. It Is al
leged by him that he did so to secure
an Indebtedness due the bank. The other
side alleges that It was an out-and-out
transfer. The main point at Issue is
whether the deed was not in reality a
mortgage, though there are many others
of importance. The transaction dates
back to 1890. Today was occupied In tak
ing the testimony of Mr. Stuart, and he
had not finished w"hen court adjourned
EASTERN OREGON MINE SOLD.
Timber Canyon Group "Will Asrain
Be a Scene of Activity.
BAKER CITY, Or., Nov. 7. The Tim
ber Canyon group of mining claims have
been sold by Jacob Thompson to Thomas
Carlck Burke. This has long been known
as one of the most promising gold propo
sitions in the Virtue district, and there
has been done on It between 1800 and 2000
feet of work. The ledge has an average
width of 3 to 12 feet throughout the en
tire length of the nine claims in the
group. This property was once worked in
a small way by an arastra, from which
values are said to have been obtained as
high as $40 to the ton. Heretofore the en
tanglement by reason of a multiplicity of
owners deterred the operation of this
property. All these difficulties, have now
been quieted, -and Judge Burke has al
ready let a contract for resuming work
on the upper tunnel, which will cut the
ledge about 200 feet In depth with about
40 .feet of additional work. Arrangements
have been made to begin this work at
once, and soon work will be resumed on
the lower tunnel, which will cut the ledge
on a different claim about 1600 feet In
This Is considered by mining men as one
of the most important transactions of the
season. The property has a splendid
showing, is situated on the other side of
Lookout Mountain, and has plenty of
timber and water, with a good mill site.

MONEY STOLEN" DURING A FAIR.
Soldier at Fort Cnnby Is Suspected
of Arson and Robbery.
ASTORIA, Nov. 7. About 11 o'clock last
night fire was discovered at Fort Canby
in one of the unoccupied buildings for the
officers. The officers and men turned
out and the fire was extinguished be
for It had done much damage. It was
developed later that some one had forced
an entrance into the. kitchen of the build
ing and had started a fire on the floor.
During the excitement of the fire the of
fice of the company's headquarters was
broken Into and $150 stolen. After this
theft had been discovered It was believed
that the flro had been started to attract
attention so that the money could be
stolen. After an examination of the sit
uation Captain Pearce, In command of
the post, ordered the arrest of an en
listed man by the name of Sutherland,
and he is being held pending a charge
against him for having committed the
crime. Sutherland is known to be a de

Old Price of Logrs Restored.
The closing down of several of the
larger logging campa on the lower Colum
bia River district and the refusal of the
owners to sell their holdings at the re
duced rates, have had the effect of put

ures, and first-class logs are in good de
mand now at $6 per thousand. The .strict
system of scaling that was in practice
at the mills, and which equalled a re
duction of at least 50 cents per thousand
in the price, has been abolished.

TKe Oregon Fruit
The fine fruit exhibit at tho Tan-American Exposition, shown In the accompanying picture, was altogether the best In vari
ety of product and general excellenco and attractiveness shown at Buffalo. It secured the much-coveted Wilder medal, award
ed by the Pomological Association of America, some of the fruit that won the prise appearing in plates on the front row. The.
exhibit was awarded altogether by tho exposition 14 gold medals, 15 silver medals, 45 bronze medals (80 in all) and 14 hon
orable mentions. Considering the small amount of fruit sent to Buffalo, this showing is remarkable. The Buffalo Review, No
vember 2, contains an appreciative write-up of the entire Oregon exhibit, saying, among other things:
"From a standpoint of merit, tho collective exhibits from the State of Oregon equal any that were made, and surpass tha
majority. From no single state has there come such a variety. The wealth of the mines, the products of the field and forest
and the Industrial products of the state were all shown In profusion. Public opinion concerning tho state 'where rolls the
Oregon has been well molded by the various exhibits made at the Pan-American.
"Not the least interesting were tho wonderful exhibits ot fruit. Apples, pcare, grapes, apricots, prunes and all the smaller
fruits were shown in great quantities and in such quality as to put the state foremost In tho ranks of the fruit-growing
Btates of the Union. Of the apples, the Kings, Alexander, "Wolf River Baldwins, Spltzenbergs, Yellow Newtown Pippin, Red
Cheeked Pippin, Oreron Red, Jonathan, Kay, Romanite, Northern Spy, Arkansas Black, Black Twig, Glorl Mundl, the Ben
Davis and Gano, predominate.
"Of pears, the varieties, Idaho, Beurre de Clalrgeau, Doyenne du Commice, B eurre de Anjon, Louise Bonne do Jersey, Fall
Butter, Kieffer, Pound Pear, Bartlett, Sickle an4 "Winter Nellis ate the more common. There are. however, some 12 or 15
other varieties of pears, some of which are totally unknown in this country. K
"The display of grapes includes Niagaras, Concords, Wordens, Sweetwaters, Delawarcs and Malagas. Quinces twice the Btze
of th two flsts are common, and are of very fine quality, despite their size, which Is very unusual. Small fruit, such as cur
rants, peaches, prunes and apricots are Bhown in the preserved state.
vThe greater part of the fine fruit came from the Hood River Valley section of the state, a section noted for the produc
tion of fine fruits. To this section, however, the Willamette Valley section Is a close second when It comes to fruit-growing,
and a great many of the finest aps and pears are from the latter section. Some of the ilnest fruit in the exhibit "was
sent by E. L. Smith, president of the State Board of Horticulture.
"Colonel Dosch, as superintendent of the Oregon exhibits, Mrs. Edyth Tozlcr Wcatherred, commissioner, and Mr. George Slo
cum, in charge of the horticulture exhibit, have been thoroughly competent representatives of the Pacific Coast State. They
have made numbers of friends, who will regret their leavctaklng."
Portland on the transport Rosecrans for
the Philippines on the same date. It is
probably that Colonel Mott Hooten, now
In command of the regiment, will not be
sent to Manila on account of the early
date of his retirement for age. In that
event. Lieutenant-Colonel John F. Stretch
will command the troops to go on the
Grant. This command will number about
1000 officers and men.
As the First and Third battalions of
the Twenty-eighth U. S. Infantry, now at
Vancouver, are to sail on the transport
Grant, from San Francisco for Manila, on
the 15th, It will be necessary for them
to entrain on the Southern Pacific In
Portland on November 12. Bids have been
asked for from the Vancouver car line
and the various steamboat lines for fur
nishing transportation for the two bat
talions from Vancouver to this city, so
that they can get away Tuesday.
The plans were to send the First and
Second battalions of the Twenty-eighth
Infantry on the Grant from San Francisco,
and to transport the rest of the regiment
on the Warner or Sheridan. Those two
last-named vessels are disabled In the Ori
ent, and are not available, and this Is
probably the reason for the selection of
Arrangements are being made for a
musical and literary entertainment next
Saturday evening for the benefit of the
Twenty-eighth Infantry library fund. The
entertainment will also be In the nature
of a farewell to the Twenty-eighth In

Idaho played a scoreless game. Horace
McBrldc, who plays right halfback and
is regarded as tho fastest ground-gainer
on the team, had his shoulder broken In
the third scrimmage, and "Pat" Murphy,
the cool-headed quarterback, was car
ried off the field .with a broken collar
bone early in the second half.
It is especially unfortunate that these
accidents happened to the backs, as only
one substitute was taken along for the
back positions. In the game tomorrow
with Washington Agricultural College,
Adams will play quarter for Oregon and
Watts, left tackle, will take McBrlde's
place at half. Goodall will bo shifted
from left guard Into Watts' position, and
Penfand will play guard. Although the
team la materially weakened, the Ore
gonlans ought to hold their own. How
ever, tho friends of tho Oregon team
have a grave apprehension concerning
the Whitman game next Tuesday, and
It 13 the general opinion that the crip
pled team from Eugone has little chance
against the stalwart Sons of Marcus,
although tho Oregon boys can be de
pended upon to fight gamely to the bit
The following Important football game3
are to be played tomorrow:
Multnomah vs. Chemawa, at Portland.
Stanford vs. University of California, at
University of Oregon vs. Washington
Agricultural College, at Pullman.
Harvard vs. University of Pennsylvania,
Yale vs. Orange Athletic Club, at Now
Princeton vs. West Point, at West Point.
Cornell vs. Lehigh, at Ithaca.
Columbia vs. Syracuse, at New York.
Exeter vs. Andover, at Exeter.
New York University vs. Trinity, at
M. A. A. C. nntl Chemawa.
The Multnomah football men are hard
at work, getting Into shape for the, game
with Chemawa tomorrow. It is 'rumored
that Chaunccy Bishop, Salem's fast half
back, will play with the Indians. Bishop
has been acting as coach at Chemawa,
and, if he plays tomorrow, the Mult
nomah forwards will have their hands
full stopping him, for Bishop Is recog
nized as one of the best ground-gainers
in the state.
Multnomah to Play In Seattle.
Manager Buckenmeyer, of the M. A. A.
C. football team, has arranged for a
gamo with the University of Washing
ton, to be played in Seattle November
16. The Washington team is not very
strong this year, and Multnomah ought
to win out by a handsome score.
Football Game Is Off.
FOREST GROVE, Or., Nov. 7. The foot
ball gamo scheduled with Newberg to be
played here next Saturday Is off, at New
berg's request. Their men were consider

CONFIDENT OF VICTORY.
Ruhlin Believes He Is the Coming
SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 7. It Is a rare
thing to find a pugilist In training to meet
the champion confident of victory, but
such Is the case with Gus Ruhlin, who Is
getting in shape at the Six-Mile House
to contest with Jeffries at Mechanics' Pa
vilion in this city on the night of Fri
day, November 15. Naturally Jeffries is
a favorite in the betting, but this does
not disturb Ruhlin In the least.
"So Jeffries is the favorite in the bet
ting," he said today while being rubbed
down after a long run, "well that's only
natural, for he Is champion, while I have
yet to obtain that prominence. I was
looking over the records last night, and 1
was surprised to learn the number of
short ends that win in San Francisco. I
never was more confident of victory in my
life, and why shouldn't I be? Jeffries
hasn't Improved mUch; I fought him a
draw when I was only a novice four years
ago. If on that occasion I had the same
confidence I have now. I should certainly
have won, as It was I who had by long
odds the better of the contest. But there
Is another way to dope me out. Jeffries
met Sharkey twice and failed to put him
out in- 45 rounds, while I put a quietus on
the hearty sailor In 15 roundE. Moreover,
I am better now than I ever was In my
life, and, mark my prediction I will be
champion on the 16th day of November."
Ruhlin's stock Is going up every day.
His appearance, confidence and strong de
sire to train faithfully have made for
him many friend3 and backers during the
past week or two.

have found that the use of Mother's Friend during pregnancy robs
