Fighting the Injunction Suit Brought
by Oregon City Taxpayers.
OREGON CITY, Or., Nov. 2. (Special:)
In fighting the injunction suit that has
been brought by Interested citizens to
prevent the passage of an ordinance
granting to the Southern Pacific Company
a perpetual franchise to Railroad avenue
in this city, the Council will have the co
ooeratlon of the railroad company. Mr.
lielter. representing the railroad company,
attend'ed the meeting of the Council -last
night and advised the members of that
body of the desire of the corporation to
be represented by Its legal department In
fighting the injunction proceedings, with
the understanding that If successful In
dissolving the injunction, then. In event of
the passage of the ordinance granting the
franchise, the railroad company will file
its acceptance.
The offer was accepted by the Council,
which instructed City Attorney Story to
co-operate with the railroad company's
representatives In conducting the cltys
defense. The Council also made an order
directing the payment of all costs Incident
to the court fees on behalf of the city's
Previous to this action, an ordinance
was Introduced appropriating $12,500 from
the first money received in the general
road fund for the immediate completion of
the South End Road. "Without a single
exception the members of the Council ap
pear to favor this Improvement which has
been so generally petitioned for by the
people of Oregon City. This action will
probably permanently dispose of this bone
of contention which has been a disturbing
factor in municipal affairs In this county
for years.
A communication from the members of
the citizens' committee requesting a con
ference between the City Engineer and an
engineer representing the railroad com
pany for the purpose of determining the
best possible plans for the proposed Im
provement, was promptly tabled on motion
of Straight
Movement on Foot Amongst Mining
Men of Eastern Oregon.
BAKER CITY, Or., Nov. 3. (Special.)
There is a movement among the mining
men of this section of the state to bring
about the repeal of the Eddy corporation
law. A petition Is being circulated asking
the Legislature to repeal the law. If It
Is not possible to secure the repeal of
the law then It Is hoped the Legislature
will so amend the present law as to reduce
the fees charged mining corporations. The
mining men also object to the annual tax
to the state, which ranges from 5125 to
$200. It is pointed out that often a mining
company Is obliged to incorporate for a
large sum and await the sale of stock be
fore the work of development can be
pushed. Mining men say that It not In
frequently happens that a mine is in
corporated and several years elapse before
it becomes a producing mine, yet under
the present law the corporation is obliged
to pay an annual tax to the state which
ln some Instances becomes a heavy bur
den, especially to the poor prospector.
The petitioners argue that an exception
should be made In favor of mining cor
porations for the reason that it Is neces
sary to Incorporate undeveloped claims in
order to raise money to exploit them. A
strong lobby will doubtless be sent from
all the mining districts to work for the
repeal or amending of the present law.
Surveyor McCall Leaves Ashland In
Charge of Party.
MED FORD. Or., Nov. 3. (Special.) Sur
veyor J. A McCall, of Ashland, and party
left here this morning for Butte Creek
Falls to make the final survey of the pro
posed railroad from the Butte Falls Mill
ing Company's plant to Eagle Point, a
distance of 15 miles. Preliminary survey
has already been made between these two
points and a permanent survey will be
made In order to get everything ready for
grading, which will begin when the sur
vey is completed.
Construction work will commence about
April 1 next. There are two feasible
routes from Eagle Point to the Southern
Pacific Railroad, but so far as known the
choice has not yet been made. The route
from Eagle Point to Medford Is probably
three or four miles longer than to Central
Point, but the fact that Medford Is the
commercial center of Rogue River Valley
and Jackson County will go far toward
making it the terminal of this road.

Temporarily Insane.

Miss Lillian Farrar, a popular young wom
an, aged nearly 20 years, daughter of
1. H. Farrar. superintendent for the
TJmpqua "Water, Light & Power Company,
of Roseburg, committed suicide by hang
ing herself to a pear tree near the family
residence during the night.
Temporary aberration of mind, occa
sioned by continued suffering with acute
Indigestion, Is the cause assigned. The
young -lady suffered from -a severe sun
stroke In Kansas City when she was 12
year of age, and this may have been a
contributing cause in the final tragedy.
The Jury brought in a verdict accord

Gooding Replies to Dubois.
BOISE, Idaho. Nov. 3. (Special.) At
Montpelier. in the heart of the Mormon
country, Frank R. Gooding. Republican
candidate for Governor, addressed a
large meeting last evening. "When he
came to the question of Mormonlsm he
showed where Dubois had been very neg
ligent of his duty In all the long years
he had served the people, because Dubois
had not taken any public or ofllclal step
to maintain the honor of the homes of
Idaho which now he (Dubois) seems to
take so much to heart.
Mr. Gooding said even when Dubois
had a chance to espouse an adultery law
at both Welser and Lewiston he showed
that he was opposed to it or any other
law that did not apply to the Mormons
alone, and that this, with his other acts
too numerous to mention, would bring
about his everlasting Waterloo on No
vember 8. The speaker further told the
people that if elected 'Governor he would
use all the efforts In his power to pass a
law against adulters'.
Mr. Gooding said that he would not be
a party to passing laws which applied to
any one class of people as against an
other, but that all laws must apply
Brownell No Longer Governor.
SALEM. Or., Nov. 3. (Special.)
George C. Brownell is no longer Act
ing Governor of Oregon. Governor
Chamberlain crossed the state line from
California this afternoon, and will be
in Salem tomorrow morning." No busii
ness was presented during the Govern
or's absence which raised a question as
to the right of Private Secretary Gatens
to act for the Governor in his absence.
Mr. Gatens transacted the business of
the office and whether he did It as a
representative of Governor Chamber
lain or Acting Governor BrownelJ,
makes little difference now. Brownell
appointed no new private secretary so
It may perhaps be assumed that Gatens
held office for a few days under the
acting Governor. At any rate he will
draw his salary for all the time of the
Governor's absence.
Plenty of Wood for Salem.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 3. (Special.) That
there will be plenty of wood for fuel
In Salem next year, is indicated by the
bids now being received for furnishing
wood for the state institutions. Though
the state boards will receive bids for a
week yet, there are already more of
fers on hand than were received alto
gether last year. As all the state insti
tutions here are controlled by practi
cally the same state officers, the bids

A Jadidoss Isgolry.
A well-known traveling man who visits
the drug trade says he has often heard
druggists Inquire of customers who asked
for a cough medicine whether It was
wanted for a child or for an adult, and
if for a child they almost invariably
recommend Chamberlain's Cough Rem
edy. The reason for this Is that they
know there is no danger from It and
that It always cures. There is not the
least danger In giving it, and for coughs,
colds and croup it is unsurpassed. For

Seattle Man Finds Broker
Ready to Take Chances
Scott Calhoun Gets $90 for $500-to-'
$100 Wager That the Republican
Candidate for President Will
Be Elected.
SEATTLE, "Wash., Nov. 3. (Special.)
Ninety cents On the dollar was paid here
today for a bet on Roosevelt. Scott Cal
houn, who stood to win $100 If Roosevelt
carries Washington, cashed his bet for
J90 with a warrant broker. A few days
ago Calhoun bet $500 against $100 with
"William Sutherland, a saloonkeeper, on
Roosevelt, Calhoun betting the President
would carry Washington.
Today Calhoun was offered the chance
to sell out at a $90 profit and took the
money. The warrant buyer who paid $30
for Calhoun's chance stands to lose $590
to win $10, unquestionably giving the
greatest odds of the campaign.
The Parker end of the Calhoun bet was
taken by Sutherland, who figured the odds
were attractive. He expected to sell a
part of .the bet, but failed to Interest any
one in the proposition. Even the Demo
cratic State Committee concedes the state
by a majority to Roosevelt and the war
rant broker who purchased Calhoun's bet
figured he was merely discounting a good
piece of commercial paper.
There has been practically no betting on
the National election here. Roosevelt
money has been posted at odds of 4 to 1
and 5 to 1 without takers. An unlimited
amount of Roosevelt money was offered
today by a commission house at 4 to 1. but
none of It was taken.
A $1000 bet was made today on the out
come of the state election. Sam David
son, a Portland travollng man, took half
of the Turner end of the bet.
Turner Dally In Seattle.
SEATTLE, "Wash., Nov. 3. (Special.)
S. S. Bailey, who has bet $19,000 on
Turner, today began the publication of
a daily campaign sheet which he calls
The Issue. This publication devotes Its
entire attention to the Gubernatorial cam
paign In "Washington. It contains in the
initial number a repetition of the Demo
cratic arguments of the contest.
One interesting feature of the campaign
sheet Is a declaration that James J. Hill
promised the lumbermen a 40-cent rate
and failed to grant It. This promise was
made months ago and applied to St. Paul
territory. That rate has been In effect
ever since the promise was made.
Bailey's campaign paper Is Issued for
free circulation and is designed to help
the heavy bettor's chance of winning.
The free distribution of city papers Is a
feature- of the campaign a week old.

Victoria Combine Will Come Out of
It About Even.
VICTORIA. B. a, Nov. 3. The sealing
season of 1904 has ended and with the
return of a majority of the fleet engaged
In the hunting it is found that thero have
been no losses of schooners other than
the ill-fated Triumph, lost with all hands
In the Spring cruieing. whije all out have
made good money. The fact that policy
dictated the use of but a third of the
fleet will, however, depreciate the profits
to the sealing trust.
So far as known, the schooner Umbrina,
Captain Blackstad, Is topllner for the
Behrlng Sea season, with 1100-odd skins.
As her expenses will approximate but
$4000, she will have at least $10,000 clear
profit. The winnings then taper down to
$500,. or thereabouti.. for the low-mark
The most serious mishap recently re
ported to any of the sealing vessels has
sent the Zlllah May to Yakutat Harbor,
she having lost much of her rigging In a
heavy gale. This news Is brought by the
Jessie, just In with 678 skins, she also
reporting the Victoria with 753 and the
Fawn with 450. The Ida Etta, Captain
Jacobson, Is home with 4S7. Seals were
never more plentiful, according to the
reports of all the hunters, but the weather
as a general thing was too rough for low
ering, for fortunes would have been made.
The scaling combine, into which all the
vessels of the Victoria fleet were brought
some few years ago, will Just about even
expenses this season, which Is more than
It had hoped to do. The majority of the
members' craft are mere hulks now, and
although the upper harbor la filled with
them. It Is doubtful If many of them
could safely make a 100-mllc cruise. The
trust Is loklng hopefully forward to eome
International Interdiction of pelagic hunt
ing that will enable them to get the old
tubs off their hands at fancy figures. It
Is with this hope that they are being
kept afloat, although one veteran, the
Ada, keeled over at her moorings a night
or so ago, from sheer decrepitude.
