KEW TRUSTEES FOR PACIFIC

Kantner, of the First Congregational
rVinr-v Sniim. and Senator x.
Haines, of Forest Grove.
ThfiSA new members Indicate an ac
tual increase of lour In the numbnr of
trustees, raising It to 18. Senator
Haines fills the vacancy caused by the
death of Hon. Benton Klllin. The elec
tion took place at the' regular July
meeting of the board, but the- names
were not made public until today, when
it was announced that all had accepted.
The board now lacks only one name of
the full quota permitted by the charter
of the institution.
All the new trustees are well known
to the people of Oregon, and have beon
nrominent in public life for many years
President Ferrln and other members of
the faculty are especially gratified
because several of the men chosen come
from sections of the state that have
not been represented heretofore.
"With the addition of these men to
the Board of Trustees, are other fav
orable circumstances which promise a
wider .field of usefulness for the uni
versity in the future. The recent gift
of 510,000 from the daughters of the
late Henry Failing, raises the actual
invested funds of Pacific to 3220,000.
This is the largest endowment pos
sessed by any educational institution in
the state, aside from those which are
supported fay public funds. It Is ade
quate to meet the expenses of the col
lege as they have been in the past, but
the' faculty and trustees are hoping for
a still greater increase to provide for
the larger work before them. Efforts
are now being directed towards secur
ing the $20,000 bonus, necessary to ob
tain the $20,000 offered by Andrew Car
negie for library purposes. Besides the
new members the following men are
now on the Board of Trustees:

SALMON ARE OF GOOD SIZE
Some Heavy Catches Are Reported
ASTORIA, Or., Aug. 8. (Special.)
Although not yet reaching the propor
tions of what is termed a "big run'
the increased amount of fish in the
lower harbor continued today and some
good catches are reported. Several of
the gillnetters delivered a ton to the
boat today, and the seines on Sand
Island made fair hauls.
The Tallant-Qrant grounds, which
secured 12 tons in two hauls yesterday,
caught eight tons today. In fact, near
ly all the gear in that section of the
river report good catches. On the oth
er hand, the gillnetters drifting along
the middle river did not average over
100 pounds last night, and the seines
above Tongue Point did little better.
Those who watch the "signs" claim the
present spurt is the advance guard of
the long-expected run, and predict big
catches tonight and, tomorrow. The
fish Are of good size and the quality is
fairly good, although a few whitcfish
are making their appearance.

At the meeting of the commission today.
Fish Warden VanDusen reported that the
Golden Drift Mining Company has re
moved defects in the flshway so that fish
can cet over.
Mr. VanDusen finds that the DeoDlo in
the vicinity of the dams are so little in
sympathy with enforcement of the law
that they will not aid in the discovery of
violations and it is difficult to secure con
victions. In one recent case six nets used
in Illegal fishing near the Golden Drift
Company's dam were solzed and stored
for safe keeping In the office of Justice of
the Peace Furman, at Grant's Pass.
Someone broke In and stole the nets.
The members of the Fish Commission
expressed their determination to see that
all proprietors -of dams observe the pro
visions of the law requiring the construc
tion of fishways and that fishlnir within
600 feet of a fishway be prevented.
The disastrous results of the conditions

Confession Made in Pine-Land
Case in California.
GO-BETWEEN ON THE STAND
H. L. Coombs Turns Stato's Evidence
Against G. W. Bruce, on
Trial for Perjury
EUREKA, CaL, Aug. 8. The promised
sensation in the George W. Brace per
jury case was early forthcoming this
morning when the examination of Brace
was In progress only a few minutes.
Hugh L. Coombs, who was arrested
recently with Brace in connection with
the alleged fraudulent location of pine
lands in Trinity County several years
ago. took the stand and turned state's
evidence against the man who, he says,
employed him to testify falsely on many
locations and also persuaded others to
adopt the same course for the remunera
tion of ?50.
No less damaging testimony was given
by Ola Mulford, one of the many, it is
alleged, who were located on lands
through the instrumentality of Brace
and his go-between, a position held by
Coombs, according to his own testimony.
The action of Coombs as well as the tes
timony of Mulford came as a surprise
to everybody in the courtroom of United
States Commissioner Ford.

Phenomenal Find of Gold Near

annears to be a phenomenally rich gold
district has been discovered 12 miles north
east of Idaho City, on what Is called the
Hay Fork of More Creek. The find was
made last Fall and the" rock was so rich
that the prospectors making the find were
afraid to let It be known, as they wished
to get their claims securely located. Defi
nite news of the find has just been se
cured. There were three ledges, several hun
dred feet apart, the ore In all of them
running high. C E. Jones, editor of the
Idaho City World, who has "been a real-
dent of that section since the gold placer
days of the basin, states it Is undoubtedly
the greatest strike ever made In that
part of the state. Chunks of ore taken
from the ledges are so rich, he says, that
they would be called nuggets, were they
found in placer ground. Assays of several
thousand dollars a ton are common.
