Oregon Begins This Montbthe
Experiment' Re
form of Convicts.
Sentences May Be Pronounced in
Three Different Ways. Gov- .
crnbi Will Be fcHeVcd of
3Iuch Itesnonsibility. .
SALEM. Or.. May $. (Speciki;)-pre-gon'n
experiment -with the parole- "system
in the punishment and reformation of
criminals will begin on the 19th of this
month, when the acts of the last Legis
lature upon this subject will take effect.
Two acts were passed, one authorizing
the Circuit Judge to parole a prisoner at
the time- of passing sentence, and the
other authorizing the Circuit Judge to
sentence the defendant for an indefinite
period and empowering the Governor to
parole hfm for good behavior after he
lias served the minimum time prescribed
by law. An indefinite sentence will ex
pire by limitation of law when the pris
oner has served the maximum time pro
Aided as a penalty for the offense.
The new laws are expected to accom
1 lii-h two results encourage men to re
form, and relieve the state of the burden
of maintaining them in prison. The pa
role system is- intended, of course, to be
resorted to only whore the offender Is not
a confirmed criminal and will probably
not violate the law jgain ,if given his free
dom. A large proportion of the men now
in the penltentlarj- are confirmed cflml
rals, and many have been sentenced to
terms in prison two or three times. There
are many, nevertheless, such as those now
on the trusty list, who would be safe if
turned loose to go where they please.
Hereafter, when a man Is found guilty
of a crime for which he may be punished
b imprisonment in the penitentiary from
two to ten years, for example, the Judge
maj pass sentence in ene of three ways.
He may sentence him to a definite term
of imprisonment. He may sentence him
to a definito term of Imprisonment and
then make an order pardoning him dur
ing good bf-havlor. He may sentence him
t' an indefinite term of Imprisonment sind
lraie the matter of parole to the discre
tion of the Governor after the minimum
term of two years has been served.
Governor Chamberlain says that his ex
perience as a prosecuting attorney leads
lilm to believe that about one In twenty
persons who are convicted of a crime
would be suitable persons to be paroled
bv tuc Circuit Judge when they are sen
tenced. If the Judges exercise fully their
power of parole, there will be compara
tively few who will be suitable for parole
by the Governor. Those paroled, he
thinks, will be nearly all young men.
Attorney-General Gives Opinion lo
School Board.
SALEM. Or., May S. (Special.) That
a school district has power to with
draw bonds from sale in the same man
ner that it places them on sale, was
decided by Attorney-General Crawford
today in an opinion rendered in answer
to a request from the Treasurer of
Klamath Ceynty.
Klamath Falls school district had
-voted bonds in the sum of $13,500 for
the purpose of erecting a school build
ing, and the bonds wcro placed in the
hands of the County Treasurer for sale,
as required by law. The bids for the
construction of the building were about
S20.000. and the School Board desired
to discontinue the sale of the bonds.
The matter was referred to the Attorney-General,
and he' holds that the
law Is mandatory in requiring him to
proceed with the sale unless the dls-fl'-t
revokes Its order. He holds that
this rescinding of the order to sell
bonds cannot be accomplished by the
School District Board, but must be by
the vote- of the people of. the district
at a meeting called for that purpose.
Tie says that, although there Is no law
expressly authorizing the voters of a
school district to rescind their "order,
there Is an Implied power on the part
of a public corporation to repeal any
order it has power to make, provided
ro person has acquired a right to have
the order carried out.
The question has also been presented
'whether the Board has authority to
proreed with the construction of the
building, paying therefor the amount
of money received from the sale of the
bonds and issuing warrants for the
balance. This question has not been
answered," but will probably be decided
in the negative.

PRAIRIE CITY, Or.. May S.-(Special.)
VT. H. Lucy, City Marshal, who was ar
rested, on the charge of killing Ernest
Hickman In Lcn Woods' saloon, on the
morning of April 29. at 2:45, was exam
ined before Justice J. TV. Mack, this city.
May 3 and 4. and bound over to appear
before the grand jury on the charge of
manslaughter. He Immediately furnished
$2000 bonds. The three women witnesses
were held under $230 bonds each, which
they furnished in cash.
The Justice, in rendering the decision,
stated that although the evidence pro
duced by the state was far from satisfac
tory, owing to the Intoxicated condition
of the witnesses at the time of the af-
fray, mid the mystery concerning the
shooting which had not beep cleared, or
explained away by any of the cvldonce,
still, as the defendant waived examina
tion, he would hold the defendant, not on.
the charge of murder but only that of
Eleven witnesses were produced by the
state (nohe by the defendant), of which
eight were present at the time of the
shooting. In a much intoxicated condition,
who all agreed that Marshal Lucy, the
defendant, did the shooting that killed
Hickman: that the trouble between the
women and interference by one of the
men created an Impression that serious
trouble was pending, which the Marshal
tried to prevent, but which Hickman ob
jected to, by placing his flat hand upon
the Marshal's breast and pushing him
back (so he fell on the floor, one of the
witnesses testified), saying that he was
running the house. When the Marshal
got on his feet the shooting occurred, by
which Hickman was killed and Halght
was wounded In the leg.
This In brief Is the evidence by the eye
witnesses. However, there Is a mystory
connected with the shooting which was
not explained. The Marshal was facing
Hickman at the time of the shooting, ad
Halght was standing eight or ten feet be
hind the Marshal, according to the 'evi
dence; still the bullet went through the
body of Hickman, Just below the ribs, and
the spent bullet must have struck the
wall, bounced back and struck Halght In
the leg. which Is an utter Impossibility, as
the bullet was found on the floor of the
saloon the next morning, and was not the
least dented Or flattened.
Special Constable T. M. Bay, who had
charge of the prisoner, snld that the
prisoner had been cut in the hand by
some sharp Instrument, about an Inch
long, and that blood was on his coat
where the hand had been touching.
John S. Hughes, an old resident of this
place, says that he has known the defend
ant, A. H. Lucy, for about 00 3ears and
has never known him to have been In
trouble before. The father of the defend
ant, who died In 1M3, had been a respected
and honored citizen of Umatilla County
for many years. He was County Judge
of that county from 1SH to 1SSS. Mr. Lucy
was Deputy Marshal and special Consta
ble for this precinct for about a year, and
whenever any criminals were to be found
he always brought his man. and has
served as a very efficient officer.

The deceased was born in New York

city until he came West In 1SS3. He was
a graduate of Williams College, and at
tended the Columbia Law School. He

miseries ef Indlgeatioa.
Thousands of sufferers know that tho
reason why they are irritable and de
pressed and nervous and. sleepless is be
cause their food does riot digest, bnt how
to getrid of the difficulty is the puzzling
Good digestion calls for strong diges
tive organs, and strength comes from a
supply of good rich blood. For this
reason Mr. Baysson took Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills for the cure of indigestion.
" They have been my best doctof," he
says. I was suffering from dyspepsia.
The pains in my 'stomach after meals
were almost unbearable. My sleep was
very irregular and my complexion was
sallow. As the result of using eight
boxes of Dr. Williams Pink Pills, about
the merits of which I learned from
friends in France, I have escaped all
these troubles, and am able again to take
pleasure in eating."
A rery simple story, bnt if it had not
been for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills it
might have been a tragio one. When dis
comfort begins with eating, fills up the
intervals between meals with pain, and
prevents sleep at night, there certainly
cannot be much pleasure in living. A
final general breaking down must be
merely a question of time.
Mr. Joseph Baysson is a native of
Aix-les-Eains France, but now resides
at No. 2429 Larkiu street, San Francisco,
Cal. He is oue of a great number who
can testify to the remarkable efficacy of
Dr.Williams'PinkPilLsiu the treatment
of obstinate disorders of the stomach.
If yoa wonld get rid of nausea, pain or
burning in the stomach, vertigo, ner
vousness, insomnia, or any of the other
miseries of a dyspeptic, get rid of the
weakness of the digestive organs by the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. They
are sold by druggists everywhere.
Proper diet is, of course, a great aid in
forwarding recovery once begun, and a
little book, "What to Eat and How to
