PLEA FOR PALOUSE SCHEME
Can't Be Granted In Justice to Rest
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Aug. 24. The Director of the
Geological Survey Is in receipt of a pe
tition signed by residents of "Washtucna,
"Wash., in behalf of the acceptance of the
Palouse irrigation project.
While the desires of the jeople and the
favorable features of scheme will be given
clue weight by the engineers, the most
conservative estimates place the cost of
the system at more than double "the
amount of money available for construc
tion In the state of Washington. It
would not be fair to the people of the
State to enter upon a work which would
be sure to remain unfinished for many
years, when there is a prospect remaining
that the available fund could be expended
where early completion and quick returns
might be assured.

RICE'S COSTLY DICE GAME
Robbed by Confidence Men in Salt
Lake on Way to Portland.
SALT LAKE, Utah. Aug. 24. James
Rice, a commercial man from Stevens
Point, Wis., has been made the victim
of one of the boldest robberies ever
committed here. Rice was on his way
from Wisconsin to the Portland Fair.
and stopped off for a few hours in Salt
Lake. He had in his possession $400
and a railroad ticket.
A stranger claiming to be a resi
dent of Rice's state engaged him in a
friendly conversation, and proposed
they adjourn to a near-by saloon and
get a drink. They were joined by two
other men. A game of dice was pro
posed, but Rice insisted that he did
not want to play. However, he de
dared that he had the money, if he
wished to take part in the game. He
pulled out his roll, and had no sooner
got it fairly In sight than one of the
men grabbed it and passed it to one
of his confederates, who ran out of a
back door and escaped. Before Rice
could recover himself another man
rushed in from behind and grabbed
him, claiming that Rice had been gam
bling, enabling the other three to es
cape. Rice still has his railroad ticket, and
will go on to Portland while the po
lice here endeavor to recover hla J 400.

JAPAN TO DEVELOP SAKHALIN
Policy Adopted for Settling Island
and Mannging Seal Rookeries.
VICTORIA. B. C. Aug. 24. The steam

a distinct and practical policy has been
Inaugurated by the Japanese government
with respect to the colonization of Sak
halin with Japanese agriculturists and
fishermen, who will bo attached as re
servists to the armies of Japan. Govern
ment aid "will be granted in the first es
tablishment of the settlers in the recov
ered property of Japan, and the former
convict Inhabitants will be deported, it
having been decided by the Japanese gov
ernment to refuse naturalization to any
Russian convicts of Sakhalin, political
prisoners or otherwise. The development
of the fishery interests of the island will
be in the hands of private capitalists, by
whom a substantial lease fee or bonus
will be paid the government. A similar
system is foreshadowed with respect to
the exploitation of the wealth" of the seal
ing islands, recently taken possession of
by Japanese warships, and including prin
cipally the Copper and Robbcn Island
rookeries. Strict protection will be af
forded these as against both Japanese and
foreign poachers, and it Is probable that
the government of Japan will farm out
the privileges of sealing much as the Rus
sian government has done in past years.

NEW BURTON CHARGES.
Now Denies Making Them, but Mos
by Says They Are True Bur

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, "Wash
ington. Aug. 24. Considerable mystery Is
Injected into the case of Senator Burton,
of Kansas, by the denial of the Interior
Department and the Department of Jus
tice that they had been making an inves
tigation of Burton's connection with In
dian cases In Indian Territory and Okla
homa. Special Agent Mosby, of the De
partment of Justice. Just returned from
Oklahoma last night, made statements
alleging that Burton bad committed ir
regularities not mentioned in his indict
ment, viz., had received fees from Indians
aggregating J14.C0O for services rendered
after he had entered the Senate.
If Mosby made this investigation (and
he Is extremely free to talk on his work)
he must have done so by order of the
department. Yet the department dis
claims all knowldge of the investigation.
The only conclusion reached is that the
department did not want its Investiga
tion to become known, and since It was
prematurely announced, has followed the
common Governmental practice and de
nied all knowledge of it. Mosby Insists
that his statements are correct.
