VAN RIPER CLAIMS THE STOCK
Alleges Tender He Made to Bond

BOISE. Idahoi June 21.(Special.) L. C.
Van Riper alleges a tender of $160,000 he
made the bondholders of the Pacific &
Idaho Northern road in April, entitles him
to a majority of the stock of the com

a majority of the stock upon such pay

furnished. The tender was declined as
being Illegal, and the bondholders elected
their own people as directors and officers.
Van Riper has now revised his claim.
On the streneth of this he has proceeded
to. elect a new board for the Idaho Con
struction Company, and has served notice
on Manager Heigno not to proceed fur

GREAT DAY AT BEND
Settlers' Association Holds
GOVERNOR GUEST OF HONOR
Remarkable Growth of Town and
Development of the Country Is
Noted With Pleasurable Sur
prise by State Officials.
BEND, Or., June 21. (Speclal.VWith
the boom of giant crackers and the pop
and hiss of exploding rockets, one of the
most successful days in the history of
Bend and vicinity was brought to a close
Tuesday evening. The occasion was a
farmers' Institute which was held under
the auspices of the Deschutes Settlers'
Association, the leading feature of which
was a visit from Governor Chamberlain
and other state officials. Besides the Gov
ernor, the party consisted of State Treas
urer Charles A. Moore, Attorney-General
A. M. Crawford, State Engineer John
L. G. Adair, Who on July 1 Will Be
Retired on a Pension for Faithful
Service bj the Southern Pacific
Company. Mr. Adair Has Been in
the Employ of the Company at
Eugene for 29 Years.
H. Lewis, State Land Agent Oswald West,
and F. 8. Stanley and Jesse Stearns, of
Portland, men prominent in the manage
ment of the Deschutea Irrigation & Power
The day's programme was opened with
a grand trout barbecue on the banks of
the Deschutes River. People from adjoin
ing towns and the country for many miles
around gathered at this spread, at which
1500 brook trout were served, besides many
other good things to eat. This number of
fish is only about the average weekly
catch from the Deschutes in this near-by
vicinity, and shows with what great num
bers of this toothsome fish this famous
river is stocked.
At the Institute in the afternoon the
Governor was the principal speaker. . The
keynote of his address was the wonderful
development of this part of the Deschutes
Valley during the last two years. At that
time the Governor and his party had
visited thie region. Where then he found
practically a desert waste fit for nothing,
today he finds prosperous homes and
ranches by the score.
The party had made a careful examina
tion of the irrigation projects being devel
oped by the Columbia Southern Irriga
tion Company, whose segregation lies on
the west side of the river in this vicin
ity, and the Deschutes Irrigation & , Power
Company, which has a large segregation
contiguous to Bend and Redmond. The
Governor expressed himself as especially
pleased with the work of the latter com
pany, whose ditches and reclamation
works showed the marks of permanency.
After thoroughly inspecting the entire
reclamation work in this region, the Gov
ernor remarked that he had not expected
to find the half of what has really been
Two years ago Governor Chamberlain
found at Bend a few flcattering cabins
along the river and a building or two on
the townslte. Today he was entertained
In what he styled a "prosperous little
city." with well-laid streets, beautiful
lawns, a fine gravity pressure water sys
tem, a handsome new sctiool building and
many comfortable homes. Especially was
the city's water system, with Its pure,
cold water from the Deschutes, a surprise
to the official party. Not many towns of
the size and age of Bend can boast aa
good a system.
The Governor laid stress on the Import
ance of co-operation between the settlers
and the Irrigation companies, and pleaded
for united action in making this region
one of the garden spots of the state. The
possibilities of a great and prosperous
commonwealth were here, and united ef
fort and tenacity of purpose would ac
complish such a development.
State Treasurer Moore spoke further of
the necessity of harmony between the
settlers, and Engineer Lewis told of meas
ures being taken to secure legislation for
proper Irrigation laws in Oregon.
In the evening a reception was given
the Governor and his party at the home
of A. M. Drake. Mr. Drake s large and
handsome lawn, with its river frontage
and magnificent mountain view, was beau
tifully Illuminated for the occasion.
The state officials held a conference with
the settlers in a public meeting at Laid
law. which lies in the Columbia Southern
segregation. The visit of the State Land
Board to these segregations was in order
to study conditions as they exist. Gover
nor Chamberlain announced that the
board was determined that the rights of
the settlers as well as the interests of
the Irrigation companies should at all
times be protected.
An exhibit of grains and vegetables
grown In this region was made and at
tracted much attention. Sheaves of oats,
wheat, barley and millet standing to a
man's shoulders, rye more than six feet
tall, vetch, alfalfa, timothy and clover
showing a fine growth, with a fine display
of all kinds of garden truck, showed what
the fertile Deschutes Valley can do In
supplying food for Oregon s growing pop
ulation. The desert has only needed
water, the irrigation projects are supply.
lng that, and every day shows the won
derful productivity of this soil.
CONTRACTORS ARE TOO BUSY
No Bids Received on Construction of
KLAMATH FALLS. Or., June 21. (Spe
cial.) Supervising Engineer Lipplncott
and Project Engineer Murphy, of the Rec
lamation Service, met this afternoon to
open bids Jor building 19 miles of main
canal and 27 miles of laterals, but no bids
were received. This condition is pre
sumed to be caused by the large amount
of railroad construction that is absorbing
t " j . x

the attention of contractors and the scar
city of labor.
It Is probable that the work will be dona
by the Government, and that other con
struction camps will be equipped at an
early day to do work under the direction
of the engineers of the service.

Argument In the Le Doux Case.
STOCKTON, Cal., June 21. Assistant
District Attorney George McNoble fin
ished his part of the argument for the
prosecution In the Le Doux murder
trial shortly after 11 o'clock; this morn
ing, having1 addressed the jury for
more than five hours. He showed that
a great many statements of the woman
to the officers after her arrest were
entirely at variance with the known
physical facts and contended that the
murder had been premeditated for at
least two weeks, the motive being to
get McVlcar out of the way, that he
might not meet her other husband,
Eugene Le Doux, as such a meeting
would expose her double life and cause
her arrest for bigamy and perjury.
Attorney Charles Crocker began the
opening argument for the defense at 1
o'clock this afternoon. It is not be
lieved that the case will reach the jury

S HIS LIBERTY
Prisoner Files Demurrer That
Meets Court's Approval.
INDICTED FOR ASSAULT
A. B. Trillwood Had Recently Served
Seven Years In Penitentiary for
Attempt to Wipe Out the
Adams t amliy in luamatn. i
KLAMATH FALLS. Or., June 21.
(Special.). An unusual Incident oc
curred in the Circuit Court here Tues
day, when A. B. Trillwood, under in
dictment for assault with Intent to
kill, was practically released from the
charge upon a demurrer filed by him
self and on grounds which his attor
neys did not deem worthy of serious
Trillwood was convicted on a similar
charge seven years ago and sentenced
to a term of years in the penitentiary.
His crime was the attempted murder of
J. Frank Adams, a leading ranchman
of this county, Mrs. Adams, and a son
of Mr. and Mrs. Adams, as the result
of u. slight difference with Mr. Adams
as to the amount due for work.
Good behavior and other credits
shortened the term of servitude, to a
little, more than seven years. - When
discharged from the penitentiary offi
cers from this county were on hand
to arrest the ex-convict on the indict
ments still hanging over him, and he
was returned to jail here until the
opening of this term of court.
Judge Burnett, of Salem, is sitting at
this term, having exchanged benches
temporarily with Judge Benson of this
district. When the case of Trillwood
came up It was the desire of the de
fendant that Judge Thomas Drake and
Charles F. Stone act as his counsel.
These lawyers demurred from accept
ing the case, because, they stated to
the court, the defendant was opposed
to Introduction of the only grounds
upon which they could hope to clear
him. This plea Is understood to have
been insanity. The court insisted upon
the attorneys acting as attorneys for
the defendant, however.
When the case was called the de
fendant asked permission to file a de
murrer himself, which request was
granted, and he filed a carefully pre
pared demurrer in proper form, setting
forth that the complaint erred in fail
ure to state an exact date when the
alleged offense was committed. Ap
parently the counsel both for the state
and defense regarded the demurrer
with little seriousness. After due de
liberation the court declared the ground
well taken, which was in effect the
release of the prisoner from the charge.
The District Attorney then requested
that the defendant be held in custody
until proper steps be taken to have
hira examined on a lunacy charge, as
the prisoner was considered a danger
ous man whose freedom might prove
the cause of further trouble. The
prosecutor finally succeeded in having
the prisoner remanded until the Grand
Jury may be acquainted with the fact
in the case, and It is believed that a
"not true bill" might be obtained to
insure the retention of the ex-convlct
until the other cause may be pre
pared It developed after the previous trial
of Trillwood and his conviction that
he came of an excellent family and
that his true name is Newton Rich
ards, but he always refrained from
telling anything of his past to either
his associates or counsel. He came to
Klamath County in the late '93s, and
his past history is one of a remarkably
bright youth, insane through excessive
labor in literary pursuits and confine
ment In the three asylums of Illinois
from 1S75 until 1881, when he escaped
from the Northern Illinois Hospital for
the Insane, and his whereabouts from
that time until 1898. when he showed
up at the Adams ranch and almost did
murder In a fit of anger are known
only to himself. It is believed, how
ever, that ho traveled extensively dur

that if released he may again attempt to

After the court had been appealed
to by the prosecutor to hold the pris

strong plea for liberty. He declared
that seven years of servitude at Salem
had expiated whatever crime he might
have committed, and that he longed for
freedom and desired to harm no man.
