The jury at 7:15 tonight returned a ver
dict finding Lauth guilty ol murder in tho
first degree. The prisoner betrayed signs
of nervousness but received the verdict
without comment. Counsel for the de
fendant Immediately applied for a new
trial, and were given until Saturday, De
cember 3, to perfect the application. On
the initial ballot the Jury stood nine to
three for conviction Jn the first degree.
The case went to the Jury at 4 P. M.

the conduct and actions of the defend
ant Lauth. on the night preceding the
shooting, as "well as the morning on
which the crime was committed, -were not
those of a sane man, the purpose being
to show that Lauth was temporarily in
sane and not responsible for the shooting
it was admitted he had done.
Judce McBrlde gave the Jury lengthy
instructions with respect to insanity as a
defense. He said in part:
"The law presumes every man to bo
sane until he establishes in the minds of
the Jury, beyond a reasonable doubt, the
fact of his Insanity. In other woras, tno
burden is upon the party claiming in
sanity as a defense to make out that de
fense beyond a reasonable doubt, and if
you have any reasonable doubt as to
whether the prisoner at the time of the
commission of the alleged homicide, if he
did commit it, was sane or Insane, the
state Is entitled to the benefit of such
doubt and you should reject such de

City on the Bay Will Have to Econo
mize in Order to Meet Expenses
TIIXAM0K. - Or., Nov. , 23. (Special.)
This city nas three saloons, eacn or wmcn
has been paying 5400 a year license
"When prohibition becomes effective Jan
uary 1. $900 -will have to be refunded to
the saloonkeepers. The loss of the reve
nue from the liquor traffic will have to
be made up either by a higher tax levy
or a special tax on business enterprises.
The general opinion is that the city
will bo able to get along without tho
saloon licenses though It will have to
economize. The total levy In Tillamook
City this year was 45 mills on an assessed
valuation of $183,000. 6 mills of which
went into the town treasury, about 51000
in all. The charter does not permit
more than 2 mills for general purposes.
The debt of the town will be about
$1500, at the first of the new year and the
Council to be elected next month will
have to deviso means for meeting the
Nehalem. a town of 50 persons, has a
saloon which pays $400 a year license and
which will have to go out of business.
The town incorporated so as to be able
to collect the license for public improve
ments. Early In the year Nehalem had
two saloons and Tillamook five, but there
was not enough business for that num
ber. The present disposition of the people
of Tillamook -County Is to give the law
a fair trial. To this end prominent citi
zens have formed a nonpartisan law-enforcement
league. Tho local option law
and prohibition carried In the county be
cause the people wanted violation of ihe
gambling and liquor laws stopped. Sa
loonkeepers and gamblers now see that
they themselves were to blame for the
county'c going "dry."
Hitherto both county and city authori
ties have been lax in enforcing the laws
against gambling and illegal liquor sell
ing. Last week the grand Jury Indicted
several saloonkeepers .and gamblers,
hauled Sheriff Woolfe and Constable
Marshall over the coals, and Instructed
the District Attorney to explain to these
officers their duties. There Is every rea
son to believe that prohibition will be
enforced in the county.

Fish Warden Would Have
More Stringent Laws Made,
Take by Rod or Net Should Not Be
Permitted Wlthin-Five Miles of
Obstruction In Any Ore
gon Stream.
SALEM, Or., Nov. 23. (SpeciaL) The
dam as a menace to the fishing industry
in Oregon Is one of the important .sub
jects discussed in the biennial report of
Master Fish Warden Van Dusen, and con
cerning which he recommends the enact-
ment of stringent laws. He would not
only require builders of dams to construct
fish ways in accordance with plans ap
proved by the Fish Commission, but would
also forbid fishing In the vicinity of a
dam. Six hundred feet, the limit under
the present law, Is too close, he thinks,
for fishing with a rod and line, and he
would not permit other kinds of fishing
within five miles. Upon this subject he
says In part:
From the experience had with dams and
such obstructions during the past two years, I
am fully persuaded, that any one being privi
leged the right to harness and take the waters
of this state for power, irrigating or other pur
poses, can, without Jeopardizing their Interests,
well afford to put In and maintain good and
easy passageways for fish directly through
their dams so that fish will have no trouble in
ascending or descending the stream.
The law should set out clearly what sort
of a flshway should be provided, and require
of all persons desiring to obstruct any of the
waters of this state by a dam or otherwise,
that they first prepare plans and specifica
tions of the dam or obstruction contem
plated, together with the proposed flshway.
and secure the approval of the State Fish
Warden before being allowed to put In such
obstruction, for it is much easier and less
expense to have the passageway built right
In the first place.
The principal trouble arises where dams
have already been built and fishways must be
put In afterwards; the owner thinks the
passageway he has provided is good enough
and does not like the additional expense
when required to make a change. My opin
ion is that a party rfhould at all times be
required to maintain and keep free the pass
ageway for fish, which should, in the first
place, be constructed according to the stat
utes, and if ho fails to maintain such a flsh
way and to keep the same free and easy for
the passage of nsh at all times he be deemed
guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to pros
ecution by any peace officer or any other
The matter of fishing in the flshway. or
within COO feet thereof, should be modified,
and made so that It would be a misdemeanor
to fish within a specified distance of the
dam as well as that of the flshway. for the
fish ore sure to be stopped and their ascent
of the stream interfered with to a great
extent by the dam no matter how easy a
flshway may be provided, and while they are
stopped and shut off In this way they should
be left alone and protected to the fullest
extent. The limit, that is. 600 feet for hook
and line fishing. is altogether too close, es
pecially for large streams, and other than
rod and line fishing should be limited to at
least five miles, or restricted entirely.
The dam is, without doubt, one of the most
serious affairs that we have to contend with
today, for they are invariably located on the
best salmon-breeding streams that we have,
and stop and Interfere with the salmon as
cending the stream to their spawning grounds
or the hatchery, and if concessions are not
made In the matter of fishing streams, on
which these dams are located, it will only
be a -question of a few years before the
salmon product will be lost entirely to the
stream, for they are sure to collect In great
numbers below the dams, where they will
remain for days before taking the flshway.
and? are a great temptation to the unscrupu
lous fisherman. It Is a well-known fact by
those familiar with the subject thatno dam
that has stood the freshets, and has proven
to have been a complete obstruction to
salmon for a period of years, has ever been
constructed across any of the streams of this
state without completely ruining the stream
forever thereafter as a salmon-breeding
stream. ,
To guard against this tremendous destruc
tion stringent laws should be passed, and
the people themselves, that is the"wner or
occupant of the dam. should be required to
maintain a bailiff continually on the prem
ises to see to it that the salmon and other
fish are not molested In any way. and that
the said owner or occupant be held person
ally liable and guilty of a misdemeanor it
they neglect to do this. The waters. In the
first place, rightfully belonged to the salmon
product, which has brought millions of dol
lars into this state, and will so continue tp
Ao long- after the mills and mines are a
thing of the past. If it is rightly fostered.
Be that as it may, they are entitled to the
right-of-way and should not be shut off or
Interfered with from ascending the stream
to the hatchery or to their spawning grounds.

tion In Court at Oregon City.

Linn against F. E. Linn. Mrs. Linn to

fense to the suit.

the suit for divorce, which he said he
would not prosecute, as he desired again

night of November 18 last, and on the
following morning appeared In the Circuit
Court and obtained a decree dissolving
the marriage relations existing between
them and by his fraudulent facts obtained
from the court the care and custody of
their minor child.
Judge McBrlde granted the 'decree of
divorce last Saturday on charges of Infi
delity preferred against the wife by the
husband, and for the further reason of the
nonappearance of the defendant at tne
hearing of the case.
The motion to vacate the decree of the
court is supported by the affidavits of Mrs.
Linn father, B. L. Commons, and "War
ren Charles, who depose as to the reia
tlons that existed between the husband
and wife during the pendency of the
divorce suit. Mr. and Mrs. Linn are both

today. In leading up to the arraign
ment of Rockefeller, Dr. Mathews,
who was lecturing on "The "Wealth of
Altruism," began talking on the self
ishness and corruption of the capital
ists in this country, how they use their
immense wealth In securing privileges
that a poor man could not get; how
they get the immense throngs of
church people under their influence by
donating large sums of money, and
then expecting- and securing the sup
port of the church people in carrying
out private enterprises that bring them
far more than they gave.
