TOO OLD TO STEAL
Aged Pioneer Declines Pension
as an Indian War Veteran.
TRICKED BY HIS INFIRM MIND
William R. Reynolds-Believed for a
Time He Fought in Mounted Vol
unteers in t855-56, but
Finds He Is Mistaken.
SAL.EM. Or.. March 2S. (Special.) Mis
taken -2n his own identity Is the reason
William. R. Reynolds, of Gold Hill, Jack
son County, gives for his having filed ap
plication for compensation as an Indian
Wax veteran and later refusing to take
the money. He was allowed 5126, and no
objection had been made to his receiving
the money, but at his own request Secre
tary of State Dunbar did not Issue him a
warrant for the money.
In July, 1903, Anderson made application
for payment under the appropriation
made by the Legislature of 1903 for vet
erans of the Indian wars of 1S55-56, and
swore that be was a member of Captain
Ben Hayden's company in the First Regi
ment of mounted volunteers. His state
ment was supported by the sworn state
ment of Squire Griffln, of Sam's Valley,
Jackson County, who says he was a mem
ber of the same company, and also by the
sworn statement of Thomas Carr. who
says he was a member of Company E, of
the same regiment, and was with Reyn
olds during the war and knows him to be
the same man.
The muster rolls of the regiment show
that there was a "William R. Reynolds In
the regiment, and upon the showing made
Adjutant-General Gantenbeln approved
the claim for the amount due.
Reynold? has recently written the Sec
retary of State, saying that he has found
that be is not the man entitled to the
money, that he believed the witnesses who
swore he was. the right person, and there
fore made the application, but, having
discovered his mistake, desires to correct
it. He. explains Tils error by saying thai
he is 71 years old, of feeble memory, and.
subject to attacks of mental derangement.
He says he has never done a dishonest
act. and Is too old to begin now.
His application was made upon blanks
furnished by the late T. A. Wood.
CODE IS CHANGED.
Last Legislature Repealed or Amend
ed 260 Sections.
SALEM. Or.. March 2S. (Special.)
''Bellinger and Cotton won't recognize the
code that bears their names," said a
prominent lawyer today, when he learned
that the last Legislature amended or re
. pealed 260 sections of the code. Three
cessions of the Legislature have taken
a turn at amending the laws since the
Bellinger and Cotton code was compiled,
and probably four or five sessions more
will have a chance at It before another
compilation will be made.
The authorized W. Lair Hill code was
published In 18S7. and this compilation did
service for 13 years, though thore was an
unau"thori:jd compilation made In 1S32,
which largely supplanted the S7 compil
ation. It the Bellinger and Cotton com
pilation remains in use ten or fifteen
years there will apparently be little of
It left In its original form.
Lawyers, Judges and public officers all
over the stale will find the Index of the
published copy of the sessions laws of
1905 of Invaluable service to them In
making pen annotations in their codes,
for Attorney A. O. Condit. who prepared
the index, has made a complete list of
all sections amended or repealed, to
gether with the chapter and page of the
cession laws upon which the new law
will be found.
Heretofore each attorney has had to
search the session laws page by page to
find the changes and then note them on
the margin of his copy of the code. The
published copy of the session laws has
never contained a list of sections amend
ed. The work of annotating a code has
been such a big task that many attor
neys left It undone. With the old of the
list prepared by Mr. Condit an atorney
or public officer can In a few moments
note on the margin of his code every
change made at the session of 1003.
The session laws will be ready for dis
tribution In about two weeks. As the
laws do not go Into effect until May 18,
this will be In time for lawyers, judges,
justices of the peace'and public officers
to find out what the new laws are be
fore they must observe them.

While lying in bed in the Salem Hos

SWEENY SELLS OUT
Stock in Federal Company
Goes to Guggenheims,
PROPERTY IN C0EUR D'ALENES
Rich Idaho Mining Section Produced
Last Year Half of All the De
silverized Lead .in the
SPOKANE. "Wash., March 2S. (Special.)
Advices from New Tork say that
Charles Sweeny, of Spokane, has sold his
stock in the Federal Mining &. Smelting
Company for J2.660.0). There seems little
doubt that Mr. Sweeny has sold his stock,
although there Is some uncertainty as to
It Is believed control of the Federal
has passed to the Guggenheim Interest,
which dominates the American Smelting
& Refining Company. The annual meeting
was held Monday. March 20, in New York
City, and there was not apparently much
of a radical change In the personnel of
Federal common stock, which carries
the voting power, disappeared off the
New York Stock Exchange the same day.
The Inference Is that It has been picked
up by- the new control. Its disappear
ance from the stock list Is the climax
of an extraordinary boom In Federal
common, during which the stock has been
forced upward from about 540 to Jllfl a
share. Tho nominal causo for the ad
vance was the change in the dividend
rata on common from 6 to 10 per. cent.
It has been felt here, however, that the
explanation was not sufficient.
. "With the closing of Mr. Sweeny's con
nection with .Federal, the last important
vestige of Interest In the big Coeur
d'AleOT combine passes away from Spo
kane. There are 10,000,000 shares of pre
ferred and 5,000.000 shares of common
