E. J- Dawne Wants Share in
Divorced Wife's Money.
SHAM DOCTOR - PREACHER
After Being Appointed to Alaska
"Judgeship, the Discovery of His
Numerous Forgeries Made
v Him a Fugitive.
SALEM, Or., Aug. 4. (Spec!al.)-If E.
J. Dawne returns to Orogon to claim a
husband's interest in the estate of his
former wife, Mrs. Frank Kellogg, he will
have an opportunity to plead to grave
criminal charges now hanging over him.
Though his crimes were committed
more than 20 years ago, prosecutions have
not been barred by the statute of limita
tions, for the reason that Indictments
were filed within the time required by
law, and thus the running of the statuto
was. Btopped. The forging of mortgages,
upon which he secured loans, is the- of
fense committed by Downe, the resource
ful doctor, lawyer, pfoacherv and gam
bler. The publication of dispatches today an
nouncing that Dawne is still alive and
contemplates claiming a husband's in
terest in the $80,000 estate left by the
late Mrs. Frank Kellogg, has recalled the
career of a man who came to Oregon
entirely unknown, and who secured rec
ognition and high standing in three pro
fessions, though qualified in none. "With
out a dollar's worth of property, he se
cured money in abundance, and is re
puted to have procured 540,000 in all upon
forged mortgages. Without any claim
upon any political party, he secured a
strong indorsement for appointment to a
Judgeship in Alaska, and was appointed
by President Cleveland. It was Dawne's
recommendations' that called forth from
Grover Cleveland one of the severest
criticisms ever written by a President of
the United States.
Jjaivyer, Doctor and Preacher.
Dawne came to Salem in the early '70s,
claiming to be a graduate in law and
medicine and a Methodist reacher. He
claimed to hold a diploma from the med
ical school at Little Rock, Ark., and
when the medical department of "Willam
ette University was organized he was
elected to fill two chairs. His lectures
to his classes were above criticism, hut
it is said that he copied them from med
ical text books and journals and read
them to the students. He practiced med-
Mclne and never got into trouble because
of his ministration of drugs. His good
fortune in this respect was probably due
to the fact that he was always careful
not to give medicine that would injure.
and if he found a case to be serious he
managed to make a plausible excuse for
turning the patient over to a good physi
His Fine Sermons.
Dawne was pastor of the Methodist
Church, South, in this city, and delivered
sermons that were models of excellence.
He always read his sermons, and it be
came known in the latter part of his ca
reer that he copied them from the print
ed sermons of a well-known Methodist
Though he practiced law here he never
-took the leading "part 1n the trial of
cases, and. therefore, did not disclose his
-ignorance of 'the principles of jurispru
dence. He was above the average as a
speaker, and was in demand In "Western
Oregon as an orator at public celebra
Ben Hayden. the pioneer lawyer, Indian
fighter and farmer, used to take delight
In flaying Dawne before Juries, for he
could easily see through the thin dis
"A doctor without a patient, a lawyer
without a client, a preacher without a
congregation, and a broker without a
dollar," was one of Ben's famous de
ecriptions of E. J. Dawne.
Wrote Mortgages on Farms.
It was as a broker that Dawne mado
his great success. "When he needed
money, or wanted It, rather, ho would
write put a mortgage on a farm In Yam
hill County, or some other prosperous
locality, and go to some local capitalist
with the story that his client wanted to
borrow $3000 to $5000 on it, as tho case
' aiight be.
The farm, the owner and the name
were all fictitious, perhaps. Dawne would
not only make a mortgage, but would
back it up with an abstract of title that
was perfect His client was always will
lng to pay usury, and he had no trouble
in finding men who would yield to tho
tempting rate of Interest, and loan money
without spending a few dollars to have
fhe title thorougmy Investigated.
"When the time came to pay. the In
terest, Dawne always had It ready. "When
the time came to repay the principal his
alleged client wanted an extension of
time, and was ready to pay a bonus.
After Cleveland's .election in 1SS2, Dawne
secured a recommendation for appoint
ment to a Judgeship in Alaska, and had
on his petition the names of some of the
best-known Democrats in Oregon. One
of the signers wrote a personal letter to
Cleveland after the appointment had been
made, telling him of Dawne's incompe
tence, and asking that the appointment
he revoked. In reply. President Cleve
land wrote a long letter denouncing the
treachery of the man who signed the rec-
. ommcndatlon knowing the applicant to
. he incompetent. This letter was given to
the press and was published throughout
tha united states.
' Soon after Dawne went to Alaska his
forgeries were discovered, and he fled to
parts unknown. His wife, who was the
estimable daughter of the late William
Miller, secured a divorce and later mar
ried Frank Kellogg, now deceased. Her
father left her his fortuno of $80,000, and
It is to secure a share of this that Dawno
Is now supposed to be preparing legal
proceedings. It Is asserted that Dawne is
In Madagascar, and that he wrote a let
ter to his former wife after her father's
death, when he learned that she had
fallen heir to his property. Dawne al
leges that the divorce proceedings are
void, because there Is no proof of publica
tion of summons.
Will Respect His Clulms.
The facts In the matter have come to
the notice of Claud Gatch, executor of
the Kellogg estate, and W. H. Holmes,
his attorney is of the opinion that, al
though it is improbable Dawne will ever
come back to Oregon, yet his claims arc
- such as the executor must take into con
sideration in managing the property so
as to protect himself.

SECOND RUX OF SOCKEYES
Packers Predict 800,000 Cases Will
Be Put "Up.
SEATTLE, "Wash., Aug. 4. Within tho
next few days the secondhand final spurt
of the sockeye salmon run on Puget
Sound should commence, unless the pack
ers have placed a wrong estimate on the
run. The first spurt has Been gradually
falling awny the past few days, and yes
terday the canneries of the Sound failed
to secure a sufficient number of salmon
to operate to any extont.
The first half of the season, as the
last ten days may be termed, was fully
up to the expectations of the packers,
and the number of cases of sockeye sal
mon packed on the Sound to date is esti
mated at 300,000. On this basis, if the
second run should prove to be the heavier
of the season, as now predicted by trap
operators and cannerymen, the total pack
should reach the 00,000 mark. This Is the
opinion that is being expressed by local
people interested in the fishing Industry,
and some of the more sanguine are even
estimating the total pack at 900,000 cases.

Second Line to JJoos Bay Said

GREAT REJOICING THERE
General Opinion. Is Expressed That
Southern Pacific Will Build to
Forestall Invasion of Ter
MARSHFIELD, Or., Aug. .-(Special.)
The announcement that the Southern Pa
cific would build from Drain to Coos Bay
was received here with a broad smile by
those who have studied the railroad situ
ation here. The laugh does not come
without doubt or syniclsm. but on the
other hand it Is an expression of confi
dence the announcement Is taken to mean
not only one, but two railroads.
It is the belief of many that this news
that the Southern Pacific would build was
precipitated at this time to head off an
other railway's movement. It Is said
within the month announcement would
have been made of another road to build
to Coos Bay. The belief is Just as strong
that the new line will be a reality, that
the Southern Pacific has waited too long
and that two roads will be in competi
tion. It Is pointed out that for more than
30 years the people have been praying the
Southern Pacific to give an outlet to
Southwestern Oregon, and that its cor
poration has always turned a deaf ear to
the needs of the state.
Tho fact is cited that the company nev
er builds except to protect its own terri
tory, and that it would not extend at this
time except for some such reason. There
is apparently no greater need now for a
connection with the main line at Drain
than there was 20 years ago. and the well
known policy of the Harriman people la
not to build branch lines until there Is a
prospect of other roads entering the Held.
Has Boomed the Country.
Others take no stock In the rumors that
Coos Bay will be the terminus for more
than one railroad, and say that the
Southern Pacific is and has been the only
one substantial promise for relief in the
way of railway transportation. Be these
questions as they may, everyone Is re
joiced that the railroad will build. The
effect upon the community is marked.
Th coming of the railroad has been Its
one topic of conversation on the street
since the announcement was made. It
has greatly stiffened real estate prices.
and several deals under negotiation were
quickly closed. The most important was
the sale -of the Lyman Noble tract of 120
acres, two miles west of Marshfleld, to
Charles Hilton, of The Dalles, for J15.000.
Wires have been received from persons
in Spokane and Seattle withdrawing all
their property from the market.
Concurrent with the railroad news Is a
rumor that Frank B. Walte. of Roseburg.
has secured an option on the. property of
the Southern Oregon Company of 100,000
acres. Mr. "Walte declined to be inter
viewed on the subject, but there Is strong
ground for belief that a deal is in way of
Mr. "Walte said: "I am fully convinced
that the Southern Pacific Intends to build,
but the owners will make a mistake by
Inflating real estate values. Prices are
already high enough, and what we want
Is more people.
What Bankers Think.
J. W. Bennett, president of the Flana
gan & Bennett Bank, said: "I think the
bullaing of the road from Drain to Coos
'Bay will be a profitable Investment for
the railroad company, whose line will bo
fed by the rivers and bar harbors on -the
coast, and its construction will stimulate
the development of the vast resources In
the territory through which It passes."
"Cashier McFarland. of the First Na
tional Bank, said: "The announcement
that the railroad will build is cood news.
I have heard nothing but expressions of
approval and confidence. The road will
greatly stimulate developments, and I
think direct railroad communication will
benefit Portland even more than Coos
Cashier Wlnsor. of the Bank of Oregon,
said: "The announcement Is all right.
Tho building of the railroad Is what we
want It will enlist foreign capital to
help develop our resources."
Manager Robertson, of the Pacific
States -Telephone Company, said the an
nouncement means a city here of 25,000
people by the time the railroad is built.
Dr. McCormas said: "I think l has been
the deliberate plan of the Southern Pa
cific to build In here, and that this was
the intention two years ago. when the
survey was started. I have looked for no
other road. The main line of the South
ern Pacific from Portland to San Fran
cisco will be through here."
Mayor Sengstacken said;. "It is good
news that we heard. I have every reason
to believe that the announcement means
business. It will be a great benefit to
Coos Bay to have railway communication
with the interior."
Attorney Seabrook said: "I have seen
only the press reports. If It is true that
the Southern Pacific means to build in
here, it means a great thing for this sec
tion, and also for the Willamette Valley.
In fact, the whole state will be benefited."

Governor Mead then took up the matter

Kees the Governor says. In part:
"The doctrine that bodily residence Is a
place coupled with an Intention to make
such place a home Is generally recognized,
but here these men, while actually bodily
resident In their quarters at the Peniten

a place apart from there, and by methods
that do not indicate good faith.
"They might have thought they had Jus

Impudent, nnd showed a disposition to

Such conduct and such an attitude, on the

Mrs. A. Hill, residing at 33 First street,
says: "I suffered considerable for a year
or more from aching pains in my back,
extending down, through the loins and in
the region of the kidneys. I had to be
careful in doing any work about the
house which required stooping or lifting,
for If I moved suddenly I used to suffer
severe twinges of pain In my back. I
used planters and several remedies, but
found little relief until I got Doan's Kid
ney Pills. They helped mo from the first
and finally cured me."
