Harry "Floyd, Wealthy Society Girl,
Shocked Her Friends by Mar-
rlage to Man Ylx Worked
on a Street-Car. ,
LAKEPORT, Cal., July 24.-(SpeciaD-Judge
M. S. Sayre thl. morning handed
down an opinion In the Superior Court In
the celebrated case of the Gopcevlc will
contest, which has been under considera
tion for more than two months. By this
decision the 51,000.000 estate .left by the
unfortunate heiress. Harry Augustus
Lyons Floyd Gopcevlc goes to her
husband, lilos Mltroy Gopcevlc ap she
Intended when she drew her last testa
ment on her deathbed.
It was alleged by the relatives who at
tacked the will that Elsie Prltchard. a
friend of the dead girl, had a complete,
an almost hypnotic influence over the
heiress, and used this controlling force to
further the conspiracy in which Harry
Floyd was unwillingly married to Mllos
Mltroy Gopcevlc, a gripman on the Sacra
mento street line who afterward man
aged, with her assistance, to acquire "the
whole estate by influencing his wife's will
before her end.
Husband Not an Adventurer.
This theory is absolutely exploded by
the court. The suggestion that Mllos
Gopcevlc was an adventurer and schemer
is also set aside by Judge Sayre. who
bellevea the romantic story o'f his court
ship and secret marriage as Gopcevlc said
Unsoundness of mind on the part of
the testatrix was the principal allegation
on which the contestants based their
case. They went hack to the very na
tivity of Harry Floyd, the heiress, and
alleged she had been ralwd into a man
ner tending to turn her mind Into intro
spective channels and develop a sort of
dementia, which took the form of im
personating characters in fiction. Loom
ing large among these was Dumas"
Raoul de Bragelonne In. thq "Three Mus
keteers," as well as the Compte dc La
Fere and other Imaginary personages.
Amused Herself With Impersonation
Harry Floyd was said to have lived and
moved In these figments of fiction, cos
tuming herself and governing hor words
and actions to suit the character, until
she actually became oblivious to what
was passing In the real world about her.
s Judge Sayre admits that she Imperson
ated such characters, but evidently be
lieves it was only In the way of amuse
ment and recreation, and that it never
became a v controlling factor in her
thoughts. He declares that the was of
perfectly sound mind at all times and
that'the will which she drew when she
lay dying, and which she wrote entirely
In her own hand, Is a sound legal docu.
ment not to be broken by any recital of
facts In evidence or law
The case is one of the most sensational
in the history of California. The roman
tic marriage of the wealthy society girl
to a gripman first shocked society and
her death nine months later won its

RIGHT TO DECIjARE FORFEITED
CERTIFICATE OF SALE.
Oregon Supreme Court Passes on
Case Where Purchaser Is Delin
quent In Payments.
SALEM. Or, July 24. (Special.) The
right of the State Land Board to declaro
a certificate of sale forfeited when pay
ments have become delinquent for the
time specified by law was upheld by the
Supreme Court today in the case of C. A.
Sehlbrede against the State Land Board.
The court, in an opinion, written by
Justice Bean, holds that when the pur
chaser has defaulted for the time men
tioned, the certificate of sale becomes void
unless the state, though the State Land
Board, waives the forfeiture. No "waiver
was alleged In this case. The decision to
day affirms the decree In the lower court
rendered by Circuit Judge R. P. Boise, of
Sehlbrede applied for the purchase of
320 acres of land in 1892, making a first
payment of one-third of the price. . He
made payment of another one-third of
the principal and wveral payments ot
interest, but in 1902, when he tendered the
balance due. he was three and -one-half
years in default. The Board refused to
accept hl6 money or issue a deed, and
he brought this mandamus suit, which
was dismissed In the lower court on de
murrer. The statute provides that "if any inter
est should remain unpaid for one year
after the same becomes due, thp sale and
certificate shall be void and all payments
forfeited and all the land shall be -deemed
vacant and shall be subject to -sale as If
it had not before been sold." The Su
preme Court says that this statute plainly
makes time the -essence of the contract.
"The land offered for sale belonged to.
the state. It -had a Tight to' $el it upon
such terms and conditions .a$ It might
deem advantageous! No one was com
pelled to accept Its terms, or to make a
purchase 'unless he -desired to do so, and
If he did. his act was voluntary .and be
cannot complain of the conditions Im
posed. . 4 ."
"Under the law and the terms of his
contract, the court is powerless to relieve
him from the consequences of his default,
assuming for the purpose of this care,
but without deciding, that mandamus
will lie to compel the State Land Board to
issue a deed or patent and deliver it to a
purchaser of state lands who has com
plied with his contract."

PROTEST GUI RATES
Other Companies Decline to
Ship Flour at $4.
HAD AGREED TO REDUCTION
Portland & Asiatic Announces Cut
"ext 3Ionth,, and Immediately
Puget Sound and Califor
nia Are Heard From. . -
Earlv yesterday the Portland & Asiatic
Steamship Company announced that flour
rates from Portland to the Orient would
be reduced to J4 a ton after August 15,
and that the other lines operating from
Pacific Coast ports would declare the
same rate. Late in the afternoon, how
ever, telegrams were received from other
companies protesting against the cut In
rates, although at the last traffic confer
ence it had been agreed by all concerned
that the reduction should be made.
Flour exportation are far irom lively
at present- Little flour is moving east
ward from any of the Pacific Coast ports,
and the Harriman line managers thought
it advisable to cut the rate in tjrder to
keep up the shipments Muring the slack
sjason. The Japanese are waiting for
Autumn to buy much more flour, as con
ditions In the Orient are generally un
settled. The 31.000 barrels of flour which
went out on the Aragonia Saturday is the
largest shipment for some time.
At present the flour rates to Yokohama
and Hongkong are J3 a ton. Soon after
the rate xas rals?d to that figure several
vessels were chartered to carry flour.
The Forndene was the latest. With the
larger shipments going by private char
ter, the liners carried far less flour than
formerly, and the receipts showed It. If
the rate can be reduced to II a ton, and
maintained at that figure. It Is expected
that the greater part of the flour going
to the Orient will go into the holds of
the liners Instead of aboard chartered
The companies Interested In Tegular
flour shipments, besides the Portland &
Asiatic Company, are the Pacific Mail,
the Great Northern, the Boston Steam
ship Company, the Ocean Steamship
Company, and the Canadian Pacific. It Is
these companies which have protested
against the Harriman line inaugurating
the $4 a ton rate.

ELDER MAY FALL INTO RIVER
Said Thnt Wreck Will Drop From
the Supporting Ledge.
With the fall of the water In the Colum
Ma in a few weeks, the wreck of the
steamer Elder will los its balance upon
the rocky-ledge at Goble. tumble over and
go to the bottom of the rtver. Such Is
the opinion of shipping men. who have
been watching the Elder. J. H. Peterson,
who bought the' wreck from the under
writers, has done .nothing toward raising
the vessel. The cofferdam built by Cap
tain MacFarlane while, he "was trying to
save the steamer for the underwriters is
still In position. .
The United States Engineers have been
looking at the Elder, as she has been
reported as a menace to navigation. The
wreck is very close to the ship channel,
and at this point the current sweeps a
tow dangerously near the steamer's bones
unless great care Is observed.

ASTORIA. Or., July 24. (Special.) Dur
ing every afternoon of the past week the
Government telegraph, line between this

to "go down for a few hours, when it
would "clear" again. The cause has been
a mystery until yesterday, when Line
man George New made an Inspection trip
over the railway trestle along which the
wire runs. He found that a grate-cleaner
which had fallen from a passing locomo
tive had caught on the wire, and the Iron
handle, which was several feet in length,
was submerged at high tide, causing the
wire to ground. When the tides receded
the wire-cleared again.
