MURDER TO BE THE CHARGE While on His Way to Home of Hay woods, Enemies of Baumann, Two Portland Boys Are Assailed and One Falls, Fatally Wounded. "While celebrating Halloween Adolph A. Burkhardt was shot and killed by Samuel Baumann, near Bertha, late Saturday night. Baumann, -who says he fired the fatal rifle shot to scare away boys bom barding his house with a fusillade of bul lets, came Into the city and gave himself up early jesterday morning. He will be charged with murder In the first degree. Harry Fuller, the companion of Burk hardt, and the only witness of the shoot ing, tells a story of intentional murder. His account Is weak in many points. To determine the truth an Inquest will be held this afternoon. It Is expected that a tale of a long-standing feud will be un earthed. Baumann, tho man who- fired two rifle shots at Burkhardt and Fuller, had. It appears, been in constant trouble with the sons of H. D. Haywood, the farmer for whose house on the Garden.Home road the young men were headed. Dogs had been killed by Baumann and by the Hay wood boys In return. That Baumann in tended to Injure some one seems certain from the testimony of Fuller, and from the position of his house and Burkhardt's body w hen found. "Whether the shot was Intended for the Haywood brother, or for Burkhardt, or was fired to scare away maraunders, Is the question the Coroner's Jury must decide. Dead Man a Portlander. Burkhardt, who was 20 years of age, was the son of J. J. Burkhardt. 934 Bast An keny street. Together with Fuller he roomed at the stable of James Lyons at Union avenue and Bast Alder street. He had been driving a team for C ilorris. News of th& killing reacpx' the city about 1 o'clock yesterday mcrnlng. C IL Skewes, as representative of Coroner Flnley, -went out before daylight to re cover the body. He met Baumann driv ing into the city to surrender himself. "With Skewes was Fuller, who had walked Into the city. He said last evening that at the time of the shooting he had recog nized Baumann 100 yards away in the moonlight. But when. In the Coroner's buggy he did not recognize Baumann' In davllght, though he was but a few feet distant. "An Accident," Cries Baumann. Baumann was then much excited and cried: "It was all an accident." Fuller, knowing him then, contradicted him, de claring that Baumann had tried to kill Burkhardt. Baumann Is now In the Coun ty Jail, and by the orders of Sheriff Storey no one is allowed to see him. "We left town at 8 o'clock," said Fuller last evening at the Coroner's office. "We went up the rod from Corb'ett street, and .walked slowly up the hill. "We were going to Haywood's house, where we go almost every Saturday night. We had, one small pistol with us and we fired It off occasionally. "When some dis tance up tho hill we heard other shots further on and answered these. We kept this up for several minutes. I always fired the pistol straight down Into the gulch. which was covered with brush. When not far from Haywood's house, it was about 11:30 I guess. We had not heard the other shots for several minutes then." "Suddenly I saw something in the moon llgnt fully 100 yards ahead of us. Then I saw that It was Baumann and that he had a gun. At once I heard him shoot, and felt the bullet pass near me. We both started to run back down tho road, In tending to climb the bank and escape Into the brush which grows on either aide. Story of the Eye-WItness. "Baumann fired again and I heard Burk hardt cry out loudly, I was nearly up the bank then, and Burkhardt was a few feet behind and not yet up tho steep bank. Then I saw Baumann turn back toward his house, which Is about 100 yards further1 back from where ho shot at us. We had not run more than 20 feet before Burk hardt was shot "I pulled Burkhardt up on the bank. He was gasping but was able to speak once 'I'm. going,' he cried. That was Baumann,' I told him. Then ho fell back and seemed to be already dead. I ran along the bank to Haywood's house- nearly half a mile away. H. D. Haywood, an elderly roan, and his daughter, Mrs. May Dickson, went back with Fuller to the spot where Burkhardt's body had been laid. Either in his deaths spasm or from some cause he had moved fully 20 feet, but was dead when his com panion reached him. Fuller then came to tho nearest tele phone In Portland and called up tho cor oner's office It was then 1 o'clock. As Depaty Coroner A. L. Finley was absent on another case, C. H. Skewes made the Investigation. Baumann's house is on tho other side of the hill which flanks the Garden Homo road over which the young men wero trav eling. The place is about three miles out side the city limits. The road there run3 In a curve along the hillside. Mrs. Haywood told Mr. Skewes that she had seen the flash of the second shot from her window. The exact spot where Bau mann must have stood is hard to determine. The accounts are extremely contradictory, and It Is believed that there la more In tho affair than appears on the surface. "Why did you and Burkhardt flro those shots? was asked of Fuller, t X. , Were Celebrating Halloween. "Oh, we were Just celebrating Hallo ween," he replied. "Were the Haywoods expecting a visit when you reached there a little beforo 12 o'clocj.i" "No, they had given us up and had gone to bed." Mr. Skewes had asked him If he had shot the pistol after Baumann had fired T the fatal shot which struck Burkhardt's back. "No, well, yes, I Baw something white near Haywood's house and took a shot at IL But it was a pig." Burkhardt's brother married Haywood's daughter Edith. The young men were ac quainted in the neighborhood and fre quently went to the Haywood residence. "How did you know It was Baumann who shot at you?" was asked of Fuller. "I have seen him a few times, but never to speak to," was the reply. Baumann's Feud With Haywoods. It appears that Baumann and tho Hay wood boys Del and Roy, had been in con stant trouble. One killed a dog belonging to tho other family, and the compliment was returned In kind. Baumann told the ofllcers that a short time before he went out into the road and shot Burkhardt that a band of boys had shat several times at hlsjjouse and that he had heard the bullets strike the side of the bulldlng.j He had gone out to frighten away the marauders whom he feared would kill some calves In a nearby pasture. In the dim light he had mistaken Burkhardt and Fuller for members of the gang, whom they had heard a short time before shoot ing In the vicinity of Baumann's house. According to Fuller the nlrst shot from his 44-calIber rifle came close to Its tar get. The second killed Burkhardt, striking him in the back and penetrating the body. Tho shots do not appear to have been fired with the sole Intent of frightening away any one. Murder In First Degree Charged. "Baumann will be charged with murder in the first degree," said District Attor ney Manning last evening. "It seems that if he didn't get the man he was after he certainly tried to kill some one." Mrs. Baumann told the coroner's repre sentative that her husband had not gone, outside the yard, that he had stood near the dwelling and fired in the air at the boys who had been shooting at the house. CHINA BEGS FOR AID. Helpless Against Russian Occpuatlon of Mukden. PEKIN, Nov. L The Chinese govern ment is greatly disturbed a the reoccupa tlon of Mukden, tho capital of Manchuria, by Russian troops. The Foreign Office Is appealing to friendly foreign Legations for help and advice, admitting its own helplessness in the matter. The Russians returned to Mukden on Thursday or last week. According to ad vices received by the Chinese government, 1500 Russian soldiers took possession of the -official buildings there, and barricaded the gates. There are between 15,000 and 20,000 Chines troops In and about Mukden. The Communication relating to Mukden is as follows: "THe Russians employed a noted brigand, who was accused of many crimes against the Chinese, as chief of one of tho Ir regular bands of police that are organiz ing in Manchuria. The authorities re peatedly requested the surrender of this man, and the Russians recently consented to give him up. "Thereupon a Chinese officer decapi tated the brigand without giving him a trial. When this became known, -th,e Rus sians demanded the execution of this of ficer within five days, giving as an alter native the seizure of Mukden. ThL Chinese Forcln Ofllre was nego tiating with Paul Lessarf the Russian Minister, on the matter, and offered to banish the ofllcer, pleading that he had exceeded his instructions, and to remove the Taotal, his superior, from office. "There was a misunderstanding as to the time limit set for these negotiations. Tho Chinese thought It expired yesterday. Before the negotiations were completed the news was received here that .. Russia had fulfilled her promise to reoccupy Muk den. Alexleff Leaves Port Arthur. PEKIN, Nov. 1. The fact that Viceroy Alexleff has removed his headquarters from Port Arthur to Vladivostok has caused great surprise In Pekin. It is gen erally, conjectured that he was unwilling to risk passing the Winter at a port which the Japanese undoubtedly would make a strenuous attempt to blockade In the event of war, thereby preventing the Viceroy from communicating with his government. ANGRY, BUT STILL LOYAL. Commissioner Says French-Cana. dians Will Abide by Decision. BOSTON, Nov. 1. A. D. Aylesworth, one of the Canadian members of tho Alaskan Boundary Commission, arrived here today from Liverpool on the steam ship Mayflower. Speaking of the decision ho said: "I think the decision was most unjust and unfair to give all to the United States and nothing to Canada. Sir Lewis Jett and myself held the opinion that the decision was wrong while the others held they were right." When asked what effect he thought tho decision would have on Canada's future Mr. Aylesworth said: "I don't think it will have any politi cal effect. The Frenrfh-Canadlan people are the most loyal subjects that England has In Canada. There Is no more loyal British subject In Great Britain than Sir Lewis Jett." Anvil Printing Plant Destroyed. PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 1. The large plant of tho Anvil Printing Company, In West Philadelphia, was destroyed by fire tonight and much surrounding property damaged. Tho loss was estimated at $200,000.

SHIPPING TIMBER OCT Act for bidding it should be amended o as to give the Secretary of the In terior discretionary powers in ex ceptional casos. OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash ington, Nov. lV-If Congress will carry out a simple recommendatic-Yx contained in the annual report of Commissioner W. A. Richards, of the General Land Office, made public today, one of tho greatest evils growing out of the forest reserve system will be checked, and the Government -will be In a fair position to proceed with the extension of reserves in forested areas of tfte West, Commibsionet- Rjchard3 deals with the lieu land question .In an alto gether new manner, and offers a most simple solution of what has heretofore been regarded as an Involved und vital question. "I recommend that the act of June 4, liST, as amended by the act of June 6, 1S00 the law authorizing forest reserves and providing for their administration be further amended so that only non-timbered land may be taken In lieu of land within a forest reserve." That Is the whole thing In a nutshell. Continuing, the Commissioner says: Unfair to Government. "In the exchange of land within a for est reserve for other public land. It fre quently occurs that land from which the timber has been cut Is exchanged for land heavily timbered. This is manifestly un fair to the Government, but cannot be pre vented under the law. While It Is consid ered to be impracticable to require that only land of like value shall be taken In exchange for land In a reserve, it might be provided that timber should not be se lected In lieu of such land, just as mineral land Is now excepted from such selection. "There would be no hardship In this re strlctlon, as the timber can be taken off the land In the reserve before the ex change is made, and. In fact, this Is gen-" erally done. In addition to this Is the fact that these exchanges are optional with the owners of land in a reserve. He is not obliged to make the exchange." The commissioner sas thero were 5504 forest lieu land selections pending on the first of last July and they involved an approximate area of 1,263,136 acres. Creation of Reserves. For the first time, the Commissioner officially declares his policy as regards the creation of new reserves, and as to changes In the method of administering reserves already or that may hereafter be established. At the present time, when so many temporary withdrawals pending, and final action not yet In sight. Commissioner Richards' views on the qdestlon of forest reserve extension are doubly interesting. "The work of forest reserve extension has been pushed forward as rapidly as I IN CONTEST FOR SAN 'FRANCISCO MAYORALTY H. J. Crocker, Republican. possible during the past year," says he. It has, however, been greatly retarded by a lack of. authentic information respect ing many of the regions under considera tion, which hns prevented recommenda tions being made, as yet. In many cases. "It Is undout'edly a matter of first Im portance that the reserves thus far es tablished should bo supplemented by such additional ones as are needed to form a comprehensive series, such as will Insure full protection to the water and timber supplies of both the Rocky Mountains and Pacific Coast regions. As yet, neither of the two great ranges of these regions has a sufficient chain of reserves protecting Its entire length, nor has the matter of reserving as many sources of water sup ply as may be needed in connection with the Irrigation movement been fully deter mined. Would Limit Withdrawals. "While Impressed -with the urgency of losing no further time In protecting all needed watersheds and other Important- areas, I deem it of equal Importance that no hasty or Ill-advised action should be taken in connection with a measure of public policy that Involves withholding extensive areas from settlement. The forest reserve system Is simply one of the features of our general land policy, and requires to be so administered as to be made to serve the main purpose and intent of that policy the settlement of tho country by home-builders. "I am of the opinion that any admin istration of the forest reserve sys tem that results In unnecessarily with holding areas from settlement should be avoided. Only such areas as are absolute ly required to preserve a supply of tim ber for present and future needs, and to protect Important sources of water sup ply, should be withheld from the general area available, for settlement. Acting upon this principle,. I have proceeded slowly In tho matter of recommending the setting apart of new forest reserves. Careful expert examinations are deemed essential in considering all cases. A gen eral scheme of reserves ha3 been mapped out, and thorough field examinations will be made before final action Is taken. In any case. "Jn the meantime the precaution Is tak en of securing the lands from speculative appropriation by temporarily withdraw ing them from settlement and disposal of all kinds." Forest Reserve Fires. Commissioner Richards highly com mends tho work of forest rangers in sup pressing forest fires throughout the West. Tho effectiveness of the present fire protection system is shown by the constantly decreasing number of fires in reserves. Whereas In 1001 1335 flres were discovered; in 1002 there were 10S3, and in 1003 only 597, while the area in reserves, and for which fire reports were made, was materially increased each year. The ex cessive fires reported last year were in the Cascade reserve, Oregon; Balnler re serve, Washington, and the Teton and Medicine Bow reserves, Wyoming, where location, weather and wind conditions ! made it practically lmpojslble to control tho flames, once they got under way. " Free Use of Timber. There is a growing- demand for the free use of forest reserve timber for domestic purposes, and In the development of mines within forest reserves, but as yet the ag gregate amount of timber so used is com paratively small. Commissioner Richards, in his report, endeavors to correct an impression that obtains to some consid erable extent among residents in and near forest reserves, that they are entitled to free use of timber to supply fuel or other needs Incidental to conducting business or commercial enterprises. Persons conducting hotels, road ranches, way stations and similar places are not among those who are permitted tho free use of reserve timber, nor can settlers make use of free timber In th manufac tur of crates, boxes, etc., for the ship ment of the product of their land, or for fencing, corrals, or otheruse In further ance of grazing or any other industry conducted as a matter of speculation upon other lands than those owned or claimed under the public land laws by tho stock grower,, rancher or settler. Timber Shipments. Commissioner Richards declares the forest reserve act of June 4, 1S37, Is de fective In requiring 7that all timber pro cured from forest reserves shall, without exception, be used In the state or ter ritory In which the reserve lies. While such limitation Is undoubtedly well In some Instances, yet he says cases arise In which It results In working a serious hardship. It is pointed out that persons living in Wyoming, near the Black Hills forest reserve, and In Montana, near the Big Horn reserve, and In Southern Wyo ming, near the Uintah reserve, are com pelled, by their necessities, to violate the law, since they live on prairie land, and can only secure timber from the reserves lying across the state line. These re serves contain their natural sources of timber supply, and yet they are deprived of It. The same conditions exist in Ore gon, Washington, Idaho and California.

SHERIFF KILLED IN FIGHT Fear of a General Uprising on the Rosebud Agency, THE INDIANS ARE STARVING Have Been Violating State Law In Killing Wild Game Said to Have Stolen Cattle to Fill Hungry Stomachs. CHEYENNE, Wyo , Nov. 1. Governor Chatterton has been advised of a fierce battle that was fought late yesterday af ternoon on Little Lightning Creek, 50 miles north of Luck, in Eastern Wyoming, be tween Sheriff W. H. Miller, with a posse of six men from Weston County and a band of Crow Indians on the way to the Sioux Agency at Rosebud.
