Register E. "W. Bartlett has been absent
from the city and was supposed to be
attending the State Fair. A literal read
ing of the telegram conveys the impres
sion that this order practically removes
Mr. Bartlett.
Register Bartlett returned this evening
from Portland, where he had taken his
daughter for treatment by an oculist.
"The telegram sent out from the Gen

Commissioner Richards Decides
Great Area Is Xon-Mlncral.
WALLACE, Idaho, Sept. IS. W. A.
Richards, Commissioner "of the General
Land Office, has rendered a decision to the
effect that a large area of alleged mineral
lands in Shoshone is nonmlneraL The case
Is that of the Northern Pacific Railroad
protesting against tne classification of
mineral lands made by the Mineral Land
Commission. A great part of It has been
considered mineral in character for the
past 10 years, and many mineral claims
of worth have been located in the district,
but this decision of the Land Office, unless
Teversed. will invalidate all mining loca
tions that have been made on odd-numbered
sections. The decision has caused a
sensation, and indignation is rife.
The territory affected by the decision
consists of 27 townships, containing an
area of more than 30 square miles, or 35,
000 acres, lying south of Wallace in the
Coeur d'Alene mining region. The lands
were classified an mineral by a commis
sion composed of ex-Governor Black, of
Utah; Colonel Ryan, of Rathdrum, and
State Senator Davis, of Idaho, who visited
this district for that purpose In 1899, 1900
and 190L The hearing of the Northern
Pacific Company s protest 'was held a
Coeur d'Alene last December, and United
States District Attorney Cozier, of Mos
cow, appeared on behalf of the Govern
ment, It Is alleged that Cozier agreed to
the evidence produced by the railroad com
pany without attempting to protest, and
that the three years' work of the Govern
ment Land Commission was reversed by
witnesses of the railroad, who swore to the
non-mineral character of the land.
If the present decision of the General
Land Office Js not reversed, the Northern
Pacific Company will get every odd-numbered
section involved, and persons own
ing mining claims thereon, whether quartz
or placer, will be compelled to purchase
the same from the railroad company or
forfeit their rights.
Defense's Strong; Point Is That CniiKe
of Death Is Not Proven.
SAN FRANCISCO. Sept. 18. Further
hearing of testimony in the case of Mrs.
Martha E. Bowers and her sister, Mrs.
Zylphla C Sutton, was continued before
Police Judge Cabanlss today, in order to
strengthen the contention of the defense
that the actual cause of the death of Mar
tin L. Bowers had not been proved, the at
torneys for Sirs. Bowers and Mrs. Sutton
placed Autopsy Surgeon Bacigalupl on the
witness stand.
The doctor testified that he had only re
moved the stomach at the autopsy and
two portions of the brain for analysis by
the city chemist. So far the prosecution
has not proved the cause of death of Bow
ers to be due to arsenical poisoning.
Patrick Lervy. alias O'Leary, was put
on the witness-stand by the prosecution.
His examination disclosed nothing of ma
terial value and the attorneys for the de
fense declined to cross-examine him.

Only Four Days for Colombia to Act
in Panama Matter.
WASHINGTON, Sept lS.-Only four
days remain In which the ratification of
the Panama Canal treaty must be ex
changed. Dr. Hermann, the Colombian
Charge, transmits promptly to the State
Department such details of proceedings
in the Colombian Congress as come to
him, but what their nature is he declines
to reveal.
He realizes the severity of the situation,
but he has not had any instructions to
request any extension of the time for
ratification nor has the American Govern
ment intimated so far as known that It Is
anxious to grant It. The State Depart
ment is simply waiting. It -was stated
today that official advises received here
contain certain facts which It Is said
put an entirely new light on the. obstruc
tions which have been placed in the way
of ratification by the Colombian Congress
It was also said that these advices are
to the effect that the object in introduc
ing the radical amendments to the treaty
was not with the hope of heir being adopt
ed, but In order to force the concession
of certain minor amendments. It can
not be learned whether there Is any foun
dation for these claims.
In some quarters the suggestion Is made
that a real stumbling block to the rati
flcation of the treaty might be removed
if the new Panama Canal Company would
consent to the payment to Colombia
of a stipulated portion of the $40,000,000
which It Is to receive from the American
Government for Its rights, franchises and
property along the route of the proposed
canal. According to the bill reported to
the Colombian Senate that government
wants $10,000,000 of this money, but It is
believed by some persons familiar with
South American affairs that a compro
mlse might be reached whereby half that
amount would be accepted by Colombia.
The latter government thinks she Is
entitled to some portion of the money. It
Is also suggested that Colombia might be
willing to forego insistence on some of the
other important amendments which have
been proposed if she were compensated by
the Panama Canal Company.
Little Hope for the Treaty.
NEW YORK, Sept. 18. General George
Roa and Dr. Rufino Guitterez, both for
many years prominent in the politics of
Colombia, have arrived in this city from
Bogota. Despite a decided reaction at
the time they left the capital In favor of
the canal treaty. It Is not likely to be ap
proved, they say.
As to reports that, in the event of the
treaty not being ratified, the Department
of Panama will secede from the republic
and organize its own national government,
Dr. Guitterez said:
"I think thatUhe people of Panama will
abide by the decision of the majority.
They are too patriotic to sever themselves
from the mother government."

Women Paint Houses to Bent Union.
NEW YORK. Sept. 18. The women of

subsequent extension 'of the vast irrigation
projects. It recommended the appoint
ment of a commission by the President
to investigate and report such further
amendments or extensions of the land
laws as may promote the actual settle
ment and development of the public do
main. It urged that the Government
should supplement its present -policy of
levee construction by a comprehensive
reservoir -system; the allotment of Indian
lands; protested against contract coolie
labor In connection with the beet-sugar
Industry; favored statehood for New Mex-v
ico, Arizona and Oklahoma.
The minority report-was then presented.
It simply struck out 'all reference in the
minority report to the desert land act,
timber and stone act and the commuta

The report was made a special order lor

A recommendation that Congress ap

building at Portland was also made.
Before debate on the report of the com

the afternoon session an amendment to the
majority report was made commending
the plan of state commissions such as exist
in Utah to work In conjunction with the
Government in the great Irrigation

General Donovan, of Montana, In favor

the formal debate. Under the five-minute
rule, W. T. Johnson, of Colorado; G. L.

D. Clark Gapen, of Wisconsin, Colonel
Graves, of Minnesota; Congressman Reed

Montana, spoke in its favor.
Congressman Needham, of California,
offered a substitute for both reports as
"Whereas, The timber and stone act,

Congressman Brooks, of Colorado, of
fered several other amendments to the
majority report relating to state and. Na

on the ground that they are Inconsistent
with the National Irrigation laws. The
majority report, as amended, was then
carried by a viva voce vote.
Mrs. Gilbert McClurg, of Colorado
Springs, offered a resolution favoring In

of America. It was adopted.
After the usual votes of thanks had
been passed, the convention adjourned,
and the 11th National Irrigation Congress
came to an end.
Many delegates left for their homes to
night, although several hundred will go
on an excursion tomorrow through Cache

Chief Forester Holds Any Opposition
Arises From Misunderstanding.
OGDEN, Sept. 18. GIfford Plnchot, Chief
Forester of the United States, in address
ing the National Irrigation Congress on
forest reserves today, spoke as follows:
"President Roosevelt has said that the
principal object of the forest policy of the
United States Is and must be to make
prosperous homes and keep them pros
perous. The object of the Government In
dealing with the forest reserves is, there
fore, to give them their greatest perma
nent usefulness to the settler and the
home-maker. Wise forest administration
is Impossible without a knowledge of local
conditions and local needs, and without
the careful adaptation of the forest re
serve rules to meet those needs;
"In the delicate and important task of
administering the forest reserves, which
are so vitally necessary to the well-being
of industries and communities throughout
the West, the Government is constantly
met by tae demands of conflicting Inter
ests. In each case It is essential that the
administration of the reserve should meet
the needs of ths people, and that each re
serve should be given its i highest possible
present usefulness, while protecting, with
the utmost care. Its continued utility to
the community. The Idea of permanent
usefulness is fundamental In every case.
"The four great timber-using industries
lumbering, building, mining and trans
portationare peculiarly dependent for
their future prosperity upon a sustained
supply of timber from the Government
forest reserves, and special provisions
must be made to meet their needs. The
use of the mature timber is often essen
tial and almost universally advisable in
a healthy, growing forest, and provision
Is made by the law for Its disposition to
those who need it. This use of the re
serves will grow steadily greater and
more essential as time goes on, and every
care should be taken to safeguard the
young growth for the future.
'For the present much the most Impor
tant use of the forest reserve is to sup
ply water to the irrigator, and its utility
In this respect should be safeguarded in
every possible way. This, too. will in
crease with time, and It will become more
and more evident that the foundation of
the irrigation development of the West
lies in the wise administration of the for
est reserves. Not only can the present
supplies of water be conserved by the
right handling of the forest, but there is
no question whatever that In many lo
calities they may be largely increased.
From this point of view, as well as from
many others, protection against Are is the
first duty of the Government toward tho
reserve. "
"Opposition to the forest reserve policy
has arisen chiefly from three sources
first, misunderstanding of the Govern
ment's policy in the creation of reserves;
second, vexatious and unnecessary delays
and restrictions, certain to disappear as
the reserve management improves, but for
the present d serious hindrance to the use
fulness of the reserves; third, the sudden
disturbance, of business conditions when a
reserve is created has sometimes in the
past occasioned serious losses to legiti
mate business enterprises.
"When, as sometimes happens, the con
tinued use of an area set aside as a forest
reserve as it was used before Is no longer
compatible .with the public Interests, then,
unless the public good absolutely demands
sudden action, which is but rarely the
case, these, private enterprises should be
given time to adjust themselves to the
approaching change.
"When ignorance of the objects of for-,
est reserves disappears, opposition to
them disappears with it. The sentiment
in favor of the protection of water and of
other Interests in the West, through the
protection of Its forests, awaits but the
adjustment of a- few differences to become

Just to require the gamblers to contrib

bridge had already fallen down, a man

horses crippled and .killed. Numerous

against us on these accounts. The peo

"I told them that I would be my own
judge as to the manner of enforcing the
laws of the city, and that there were
more ways than one to enforce the laws.
"I said that I was doing the best I
could for the best interests of the city,
and that at no time within 10 years had
the city been so free from crime, pick
pockets and hobos, notwithstanding all
that had been said to the contrary by
those who were opposed to my adminis

had been stopped, and that while these
public women could not be killed every

Warm Words With Dr. Hill.
"I had some warm words with Dr. Hill.
I denounced his letter which was pub
lished in The Oregonian as an infamous
outrage and an insult to me and to my
family. I stated to him that no pure
minded man would say that because I
did not prevent gambling I would com
promise with a man who might outrage
any member of my family.
"It was suggested that as I had an hon
est administration there would be no
grafting, even if gambling were closed. I
told the committee that the reason I have
an honest administration is because there
is no reason whythe gamblers should pay

"No Blame for Chief Hunt."
"I told them that no blame could be at
tached to Chief Hunt, that he was act
ing under Instructions, that I believed him
to be honest, capable and conscientious.
and that the responsibility for gambling
rested elsewhere.
"These gentlemen said they represented
a large portion of the people, a fact which
I did not dispute. But I stated that in my
judgment a very considerable portion of
the business men and taxpayers are in
favor of compelling the gamblers to help
In providing for the present exigencies of
the city.
"I know that the people are divided on
