WANTS FULD EXAMINATION.
Governor Mead Would Probe Peni
tentiary Election Frauds.
OLYMPIA. "Wash.. July 7. (Special.)
Governor Mead will Investigate the
charges that certain employes of the
state penitentiary near Walla Walla
fraudulently registered for tho city elec
tion and that on preliminary examina
tion before magistrate were discharged
because of the fact that the registration
oath they had taken had been improperly
administered. The Governor today issued
the following statement:
"I regret that there was not a full
and complete hearing on the capes-. In
asmuch as these state employes were
charged with violating the state laws, I
think they phould have waived all techni
calities and insisted on a full and com
plete Investigation and trial. They havo
not done so, and consequently I have
called upon the County Attorney of Walla
Walla county and the superintendent of
the penitentiary for a full report of all
the facts and circumstances. I consider
that the people of the state are entitled
to complete knowledge of the whole mat-
"Employes at a state insrtituflon have a
right to continue their resldonco at their
former place of abode or to change their
legal residence to the place where they
are employed. That Is a matter to be
settled by their own sense of right. The
state, however, cannot tolerate any at
tempt by Its employes to violate the elec
tion laws. If Investigation shows that
any such attempt has been made by any
employe of the penitentiary he certainly
will be relieved from service.
Mr. A. F. Kecs has been making an ex
emplary record as Superintendent of tho
Penitentiary and has surrounded himself
with men who are proving their com
petency. His success at the head of the
institution is apparent to all who are
familiar with it. I cannot but feel there
fore that when the facts- are presented
they will not reflect on him or his ad
ministration." H. C. BOYD KILLS HIMSELF

JUGGLE WITH ASSESSMENTS
County Assessors in Washington to
Disregard State Commissioners.
OLYMPIA. Wash.. July 7. (Special.)
An opinion filed by the State Board of
Tax Commissioners today, advises County
Assessors to make their assessments at
a uniform rate upon all classes of prop
erty, regardless of any classification by
the State Board of Equalization. The
"It is not generally understood by the
taxpayer at large that the equal lzatioc.
made by the State Board, or In other
words, the values placed upon all classes
of property by tho State Board, are not
the values upon which the rates of taxa
tion are computed. Such values are fixed
by the. State Board solely for the pur.
pose of determining what sums of money
shall be paid by each county Into the
several state funds. Such sums being
ascertained, the rate necessary to raise
them is computed and extended by tho
several County Auditors upon the values
fixed by the County Boards. The rais
ing or lowering of the value of any class
of property by the State Board does not
in any way affect the amount of taxes
that such property Is required to pay."

OLYMPIA. Wash.. July 7. (Special.)
Dispatches sent out from St. Paul "yes

Governor Johnson this morning that ho
had taken no action.
Deputy Sheriff George Loth, of St.

tion to Governor Mead at his home Just
before the Governor took the train for
Prosser last Monday. Loth was Informed
that he would have to wait until Gov

not filed until today, and a formal hear
ing will be held tomorrow, when a Seat

Mrs. Johnson, to resist extradition. Mrs.

It Is undoubtedly true that there is
hard feeling toward Governor Johnson
of Minnesota because, of the Allen requi
sition Incident, and, although Governor
.Mead Is said to have expressed surprise
at Governor Johnson In expecting cour
tesies from the Governor of this state.
It Is asserted that Minnesota requisitions
will be honored in proper form.
Miss Allen was accused of killing her
Infant child In Douglas County. She was
located In Minnesota, and A. A. Lvttle
was sent after her with requisition pa-
pors. The requisition was denied, accord
ing to the official return, because .of de
fects in the papers. Governor Johnson
did not reply to a telegraphic inquiry
from Go-ernor Mead, asking whether
Miss Allen would be held until the de
fects could be rectified, nor did he deign
xo repiy to a telegram from the Attornev-
General of this state, citing decisions or
the Minnesota courts, which squarely
hold his objections to be groundless.
vv nat particularly Incensed Governor
Mead was the fact that Governor John-
son afterwards gave an Interview to St.
"aul papers. In which he said he had
turned down the case because, upon In
vestigation, he found the charge was duo
10 a lamuy rcud. The requisition Issued
by Governor Johnson, now under mn:M.

tect that was given as the official reason
for denying the Allen extradition vis..

United States Court today Judge Beatty
heard the application for an order of sur
vey made by the Federal Mining & Smelt
ing Company in its suit against the Bun
ker Hill Company to quiet title to tho
Republican mining claim at Wardner. Tho
order was denied by the court.
A feature of the proceedings was the in
troduction of an affidavit hy F. W. Brad
ley, president of the Bunker Hill Com
pany. In which ho alleged his belief that
the Federal Company was paying divi
dends In excess of its earnings, and that
the suit had been brought to force tho
Bunker Hill to sell out the mines at a
low price, the Inference being that tho
property would be secured for the Federal
Company and enable It to earn dividends.
Mr. Bradley was recently reported to have
been appointed manager of tho Federal
Company, and his declination of the posi
tion has aroused wide comment In tho
In the affidavit Mr. Bradley set forth
that the American Smelters Securities
Company owns a majority of the common
stock of the Federal Company, and there
by controls the management of the Fed
eral; that It owns all the stock of the
Tacoma Smelter Company, and tho Selby
Company; that since March 1 It has In
duced the Bunker Hill Company to enter
Into a contract to ship all Its ores for 23
years to the Tacoma smelter at an agreed
price, the contract requiring the Bunker
Hill Company to operate Its Dronertv ao-
itively, at all tlcacs. ad to jsiilp the

believes that this suit Is brought In bad
faith and for the purposes above set
Judge Beatty held that the showing so
far made convinced him that the Federal
Company had a right to the great ore
bodies In question. He further held an
examination was not necessary at this
time, as the questions at Issue had been
litigated in his and other courts In other
cases, and that the testimony to be given
by other experts was not likely to change
results previously reached.

cording" to the statement of L. E.
Crouch, who appeared for the defend
ant when the case was called before
Judge Cameron yesterday. The case
was not ready for trial, and the ques
tion of ball was under discussion.
'I think the defendant will appear
for trial and that It would be perfectly
safe to let him go on his own recogn-
nlzance." said Attorney Crouch. "He
came here as soon as he read In The
Oregonlan that he was wanted. He is
a well known man: Judge Williams has
known him for 20 years. Schlesslnger
has no money, for ho gives all he earns
to help the poor."
"If ho Is so well known and so high
ly respected so philanthropic why Is
it some of those he has known for 20
years can't put up J50 ball for him?"
asked Deputy District Attorney Haney.
Judge Cameron decided that Schles
slnger would have to put up $50 ball
or go to Jail, and the bail was secured.
The case will be heard today.

"Six months In tho County Jail." -was
the sentence uttered by Judge Cameron
yesterday after he heard the evidence In
the care against Kittle Gray, charged
with robbing Edmund Reeves, a logger.
Attorney Alex Bernstein, for the de
fense, aroso and appealed the case.
Judge Cameron remarked at th
close of the case that aside from the
actual testimony of Reeves, which was
very convincing, the fact that the ac
cused woman was found immediately
arter tho robbery hiding under the
house showed her guilt.
Kittle Gray Is a colored woman of
the North End district, and has fre
quently been In court. Patrolman Rob
erts testified that when he went to
make the arrest of the woman he found
Jier hiding under the house. Two other
colored women were with her, both o
whom were fined $10 Thursday on
charges of vagrancy.

Chandler was fined $25 and the oth
ers, all negroes, were fined $10 each.
All the fines were Immediately paid.
"I have agreed to this because I
think it the best way to handle the
cases." said Deputy City Attorney Fitz
gerald. "But It must be understood
that this game must close. It will not
be allowed to run and these defendants
must not understand that they are to
be permitted to run the game."
"We understand that we cannot run
now," said W. M. Davis, counsel for
tho defense. "At any rate we have just
been running a-little game for pas
time." Leo Gong was fined $100 by Judg
Cameron for conducting an opium den
at 147 Second street, in which seven
white men were found Thursday night,
when Sergeant of Police Hogeboom and
Patrolmen Galbralth and Daly made a
spectacular raid. Numerous excuses
were given by the white men for being"
found In the establishment, but all were
found guilty with one exception. He
was released and the other flvo wcra
sentenced to serve 10 days In jail.
Deputy City Attorney Fitzgerald
stated to Judge Cameron that citizens
had called attention to the opium den,
paying they had seen men and women
entering there, and that once they saw;
two young girls go In.
"When Informed of this," said Mr.
Fitzgerald, "I went to the Captain ot
