been organized with a capital stock of
312,000 and will begin the erection of a
large salmon cannery at once. The com
pany comprises W. W. Kurtz, his wife
and several business men of the city.
among them some well-known fishermen.
The cannery will bo 112x64, two stories
high, and the building will cost $5000. All
modern up-to-date machinery will be In
stalled. The dock will be 120x128, and
work will commence at once.
The advantage of a cannery on Gray's
Harbor Is better than at other places
owing to a long run of fish. The salmon
run Is from August 15 to October 15. In
addition to this the famous quintault sal
mon runs for 60 days, so this will give
five months a year for the canning of
fish. This will be the only cannery on the
harbor, since the Aberdeen cannery
burned last FalL

EFFORTTO SAVE HIS NECK
LEVY'S ATTORNEYS THROW SUS
PICION ON A MERCHANT.
Said to Have Been Indebted to the
Miser Found Murdered
BOISE, Idaho, April 7. (Special,) Be
fore the board of pardons today a re
markable showing was made in behalf of
George Levy, under ientence to hang Fri
day of next week for the murder of Davis
Levy, an aged miser of this city. In Oc
Attorney Fraser for the condemned man
asked the board to hear some evidence In
secret session, as he wished to show that
the crime may have been committed by
another person. The board declined to
cioso the doors. Mr. Fraser then intro
duced witnesses showing the relations be
tween Harry Watklns, a furniture dealer,
and the deceased. Though Levy was with
out friends, Watklns paid him a great deal
The fact was brought out that Watklns
owed Levy $500 at the time of the killing.
A certain will which turned up soon after
the murder was next taken up. This will
made Mr. Watklns the principal beneficiary-
It was mailed to tho county ad
ministrator from a box near Watklns'
A typewriter agent testified he had cop
ied a portion of the will on a typewriter
found in Watklns' possession and the writ
ing was Identical. An employe of Wat
klns testified that his employer had Levy's
signature on a piece of paper In the cash
The evident purpose of the line of In
vestigation was to show that Watklns'
may have committed the murder or that
he employed some one to make way with
tho old man. The matter has aroused a
great deal of interest and It Is thought the
board will commute the sentence.
TACOMA ELECTION DEDUCTION
Chaotic Condition Among . Pierce
County Republicans Palpable.
TACOMA, Wash., April 7. (Special.)
There is an Interesting comparison to be
made of tho Tacoma City election figures
and a deduction to be drawn that has at
least the merit of being possible.
George P. Wright, the Democratic Mayor-elect
of Tacoma, carried all save one
of the "saloon" precincts of the city. Hl3
majority over Campbell In these districts
was 830. Campbell carried the residence
districts by a majority of 169. giving
Wright his majority of 66L
The saloon vote in Tacoma Is confined
largely to what is known as "Old Town,"
the territory lying along Pacific avenue
and C street and on Puyallup avenue and
C street and on Puyallup avenue and up
per Center street. There are precincts
outside these limits where there Is one or
more saloons, but their Influence Is felt
principally In the district outlined.
Old Town was the only saloon precinct
that gave Campbell a majority, and he
had but a margin of. one vote there. In
South Tacoma, where saloon and carshop
votes control, he l03t heavily. In the 14
precincts taken as the "saloon districts"
Campbell received 1077 votes and Wright
1907. The 27 other city pr.eclncts gave him
2501 and Wright 2332.
It was claimed durlnjr the campaign a
fight In which contradictions were the
rule that Campbell was a McBride man.
The closest man in his administration to
the Mayor, R. W. Clark, declared he was
opposed to the Governor. Yet the secre
tary of Campbell's campaign committee.
Jesse Jones, is a McBride advocate, and
his chairman, Ralph Metcalf, is a lum
ber manufacturer whom Ed Hamilton did
not regard two years ago as a friend of
The anti-Campbell districts are those
that were wit Fawcett in the primary
fight, the general rule having a few nota
ble exceptions. In themselves they would
not cut a big figure In the County Con
vention, but the McBride following counts
upon an ability to control the 25th dis
trict and to bring in support from, the
26th, which, with a sufficient city follow
ing, would give them the convention.
It cannot be figured that the municipal
election Indicated the McBride following
would carry Pierce, but It demonstrates
conclusively that Pierce County Republi
cans are In a more chaotic condition than
they have been at any time In ten years.
This Is the result that Is really the men
ace illustrated by the election.
WHERE THE TRAIN BANDITS MET
Seen at a Deserted Cabin at Nigger
REDDING. Cal., April 7. The large
force of Wells-Fargo and Southern Pacific
detectives working here on the Copley
train-robbery case, has found where the
three bandits stayed for five days, pre
vious to committing the crime and have
practically established the Identity of the
highwaymen, but have no Idea of their
While planning the hold-up the men
who killed O'Neil In carrying It out were.
It Is thought, rendezvoused In a deserted
mining cabin at Nigger Hill mine, one
mile west of the town of Keswick. This
cabin belongs to H. G. Dunn, agent for
Wells-Fargo at Redding.
The detectives learned of the rendez
vous from a lineman who sought admis
sion to the supposedly unoccupied cabin
a couple of days previous to the train
robber. He found three men In the shack.
One of them opened the door slightly,
gave an evasive answer to his question
and closed the door.
When this suspicious circumstance was
reported, the detectives examined the
cabin and found that the bandits must
have stayed there for five days before the
night they donned the masks and went to
Copley, five miles north to hold up the
Oregon Express and must have returned
to the cabin after compelling Engineer
Joeslnk to haul them to Keswick station
from tho scent of the hold-up.
At the bottom of a 50-foot shaft the de
tectives found the clothes the men wore
while holding up the train and in the
cabin they found a strap from which a
piece was cut to form a shoulder strap for
the bas; In -thlch dynamite was carried.
A San Francisco paper of five successive
Issues previous to the date of the hold-up
established in the detectives' minds the
length of time the men were at Nigger
The lineman who put the detectives on
the scent gave a good description of the
man who opened the cabin door for him
and the officers are satisfied that he was
a man who formerly lived near Whisky
Town and who with two bachelor neigh
bors was suspected of having held up the
Weaverville stage last June.

Ciine Butte Contains Mass of Gold
BEND, Or.. April 7. (Special.) CUne
Butto, 15 miles north of Bend, has been
found to contain a large raas3 of gold-"
bearing rock. The whole butte Is supposed
to be of the same character and there has
been quite a rush this week to locate
claims there. There Is room, however,
for less than a dozen mining claims on
this butte, but a similar geological forma
tion extends through a string of hills to
the wostward and prospecting Is in prog
The rock Is porphyry and quartzlte and
It carries about Jt In gold and a little sli
ver to the ton. This for surface outcrop
Is considered very promising. The ease
with which this rock can, bo mined gives
it value, even at this low grade. It Is
estimated that at least half Its value will
be profit. The rock Is of the same kmd
that Is found In the Ochoco mines, north
cast of Prlnevllle.
This discovery was made by Otto Retz

spent a year and a half on the Yukon,
where he became acquainted with gold
mining. Steps are being taken to develop

been concealing the tragedy.
The story has Just been related to Con

TWINS AGITATE INDIANS.
Unusual Occurrence Considered a
HOQUIAM, Wash., April 7. (Special.)
Mrs. Ocella Grade gave birth to twins
Wednesday, two boys. They are the first
twins that have ever been born on the
Qulnault reservation within the recollec
tion of the oldest Indians. All the old
Klootches are working their tumtums
overtime to discover the meaning or sign
of so unusual an occurrence.
Among the Indians of the Northwest for
many years no greater disgrace could ever
happen than for a woman to bear twins.
In the savage state these two little lives
would have been sacrificed to the Indian
superstition. This would have been the
case If she and her husband happened to
belong to- the Tomanowls portion of the

WORTH OF TRACTS FIXED
STATE LAND BOARD NAMES
PRICE ON IRRIGATED LAND.
Rates Run. According to Amount
Tillable In 40-Acre Divisions,
From S2.50 to $14.75.
SALEM, April 7. (SpeclaL)rrThe State
Land Board today made tho official appor
tionment of the Hen on the 27.004.S3 acres
of land held by the Three Sisters Irriga
tion Company. This apportionment fixos
the price which settlers must pay In order
to secure the land from the state.
Under Its contract, the reclamation com
pany has a Hen for 127,700 on the entire
tract, or a little more than 510 per acre.
This lien is apportioned to each 40-acre
tract according to the relative value of
the tract. The value depends chiefly upon
the amount of tillable and waste land in
each tract. Settlers secure the land from
the state by paying off tho lien.
The apportionment was made upon the
recommendation of State Engineer A. E.
Hammond, who has recently visited the
tract held by tho Three Sisters Company
and Investigated the conditions thatdxist.
His apportionment was based largejy upon
the estimates of the company, but he ex
amined numerous tracts in different por
tions of the company's segregation, verify
ing and correcting their estimates and
revising his prices until he was satisfied
that the valuations submitted arc as fair
as could be made without incurring a
large amount of extra labor and expense.
Mr. Hammond's report places a valua
tion upon each separate 40-acre tract. It
shows the amount of tillable and waste
land In each 40 acres, the value per acre
and the total value of the whole 40 acres.
Out of the whole segregation of 27,004.83
acres, ho finds there are 18,754.03 acres
tillable and "50.80 waste. The highest
price fixed is $14.75 per acre, where the
whole tract Is tillable, and the lowest Is
52.50 per acre, where It is all waste.
This is the first apportionment of a Hen
made under the provisions of the Carey
act. From this apportionment, persons
desiring to take land can learn exactly
what each 40 acres will cost.

Hotel, rescued from drowning In a most
heroic way. The young woman cap
sized a small rowboat In water beyond
their depth, and only the cool heads of
two of their number and a timely res
cue by Captain George Gourley, of the
local pleasure fleet, prevented a catas
trophe. The ladles were Mrs. J. Rus
sell, of Portland and Ashland. Or., and
her boautiful young sister. Miss F. Nu
nan, of Portland, and Miss M. Dough
erty, a tall and handsome society girl
of San Jose and San Francisco.
Mrs. Russell Joined her sister hero
yesterday, and today she was shown
the pleasures of the beach. Tho horse
back ride preceded an hour In the tepid
waters at the bathing plunge, and then
came a row. From Plaza del Mar the
young women, gowned all In white and
wearing brilliant headgear, were great
ly admired as they rowed hither and
thither. Suddenly a huge wave broke
far out beyond the surf line, and after
resting upon Its crest for a moment the
frail rowboat was thrown almost out
of water and capsized In the air.
Screams from Miss Nunan and pretty
Miss Dougherty rang across the water,
but nowhere could Mrs. Russell be seen.
She was under water. Captain George
Gourley plunged into the water with
out removing his clothes, swam to the
upturned boat and righted it, disclos
ing first a dripping red hat and Mrs.
Russell, who was in a half-drowned
"It was really a serious matter," said
Mrs. Russell. "I can't swim a stroke,
and when I came up choked with sea
water directly under the boat I thought
my end had come."
