Disinherited Nephew of the IiHte Pio
neer, Touissant Chabot, Invokes
Aid of Court to Provide a '
Suitable Casket.
WALLA WALLA. Wash.. Oct. 28.
(Special.) After being named as benefi
ciaries In the will of the late Touissant
Chabot, receiving as gifts an amount
estimated at HO.fwO in his will and during
his lifetime, members of the Seventh
Day Adventist Church stood in a local
undertaking establishment Friday after
noon and haggled over the price of a
coffin in which to bury the old pioneer.
Mlssell Chabot. a nephew, cut off in
the will of his uncle with $1. protested
against his uncle being buried as a pau
per and Insisted that he be given a
funeral in keeping with his station In
life. The nephew P.nally won his point
over the protests of the church people,
having been advised by Judge Thomas
H. Brents, of the Superior and Probate
Court, that the estate would be respon
sible for any reasonable charge for burial
expense.-but the-chunrh -people drew the
line on furnishing carriages for the pall
bearers and members of the family.
Although Young Chabot succeeded in
getting a more expensive casket for his
uncle than the church people, who had
selected a cheap cofnn. were willing to
pay for. the latter insisted on burying the
old man in the College Place cemetery,
as a lot there would cost nothing, and
they had their way in this respect.
Mr. Chabot, one of the oldest pioneers
in this section, died at the. Walla Walla
Hospital Friday morning at 10:30 and at
4 o'clock In the afternoon his will was
filed and Mrs. Ince and Langdon were
appointed executors of the estate.
Superintendent Ackcrman Favors
; Change in Present Law.
3A1.13M, Or.. Oct. 2S. (Special.) That
the apportionment of p hllc school funds
should be made upon -the basis of the'
number of teachers employed, and not
1 upon the number of children in the dis-
miet. in one of the most Important rec-'
mmendatlons in the biennial report of
Superintendent of Public Instruction J. H.
lAckennan. which was made public to
day. This very radical change in the plan
(of distribution is suggested as. a means
'of enabling the sparsely settled district to
employ as efficient a teacher and have as
'many months of school during the year
i as the larger and more favored district.
This privilege, Superintendent Ackerman
says, is one to which the smaller district
Is entitled. California has such a law.
Among other recommendations made in
'the report are: That "the minimum length,
of the school year be increased from
three to five months: that the levy for
school purposes he. Increased from $6 t IS
per capita: 'that the inheritance taxes be
turned into the irreducible school fund,
and that a part or the whole of the cor
poration tax be turned Into the common
school fund to be expended each year for
' school purposes. In connection with the
recommendation regarding the length of
the school year, Superintendent Ackerman
says there are too many districts satisfied
to maintain school only the minimum
number of months required by law.
"There is no reason why a child in a
small, isolated district is not entitled to
as many months of school as is the child
In a more favorably situated district,"
said lie. "More location should not be
the test of the number of months' chool-
,ing to which a child Is entitled." The sug
gestion that the rate of levy be increased
Is founded upon the need of more funds
In order that longer terms of "school may
be maintained and higher salaries paid to
' teachers.
I'pon tile subject of teachers' salaries.
Superintendent Ackerman says: "There
is no greater problem confronting the
American people tliau that of teachers'
salaries, and honce It is one that cannot
and will not be. .settled in a day. With
the increased cost of living and ever-Increasing
educational demand for better
preparation, the regarding teaching as
more and more professional, more is de
manded in a social way. both as to living
and dress, and this carries with it. to a
certain degree, a demand that the teacher
shall give the whole of her time to school
work and her vacations to recreation.
"... Our statistics show that the
average number of months of school is but
little more than half the number of
months in the calendar year. In other
'words, the average teacher Is out of em
ployment really one-half the -time, during
which her expenses must be met: and, as
I have previously said, public opinion is
coming to be such that she loses casteas
a teacher to a certain extent if she en
gages In other work in vacation time.
Tlie salary question will never be settled
right until the teacher is paid a fair wage
for even.- month In the year."
Superintendent Ackerman also recom
mends that t'ounty Superintendents be
( paid salaries sufficient to warrant tnem in
devoting all their time to their official
duties, and that they be given clerical
assistance, so that some one may be in
the office while the fauperintendent is out
visiting schools. The report says that
the state course of study has been revised
and as much as possible of the subject
matter eliminated.
"i presume." says Superintendent Ack
erman. "there is no course of study print
ed that goes farther In the way of prun
ing the subjects of obsolete matter than
does tlie Oregon Slate course of study,
and I am of the opinion thnt when public
opinion is a little more educated along
this wtll be not only feasible, but
desirable, to eliminate still more."
He says that the course of study for
rural schools should include elementary
agriculture, and that for city schools
should include manual training.
Speaking generally of educational condi
tions In Oregon. Superintendent Ackerman
says: "1 think I am not too optimistic
when I say that the general school condi
tions of the slate are quite satisfactory.
They have not readied the ideal condi
tion, and they never will; but when I
yay they are quite satisfactory I mean
that the educational forces now at work
with the enthusiasm behind them, which
Is Increasing on all sides, and with the!
helpful co-operation of all the school fac
tors which now predominate. I can see
mighty changes for the better in the
school system of our beloved state. I am
firmly convinced that there never has
been a time In the history of the world
w..en toe children of the country were
better trained morally, mentally and
physically than is being done at the pres
ent time."

of a law that will compel parents to send
their children to scriool. - speaks in felici

Charged With Importing Girls for
Immoral Purposes.
- LEWISTON. Idaho, Oct. 28. (Special.)
Wanted on the charge of bringing French
girls to America for Immoral purposes,
leon Demoleler, a Frenchman, was taken
to Seattle this morning in custody of
Cnited States Immigration Inspectors A.
J. Ferrandini,.of . Bellingham. an4 .A..;F.
Richardson, of Spokane. Demoleler. who
was accompanied by a beautiful young
French girl, was picked up in Lewlston
yesterday by Chief Savage on telegraphic
Instructions from Seattle.
Immigration officers have had Demoleier
under suspicion for several years, and he
has been watched closely ever since his
arrival at Ellis Island, six weeks ago.
He is believed to have induced a number
of French girls to come to America. The
woman who accompanied him to this city
Is strikingly handsome, but unable to
speak English. She was taken by the
immigration officers to Seattle, where It
Is expected she will give evidence, against
Demoleler at his preliminary hearing in
the United States Court.
Mme. Lawre, a woman who has been
working in collusion with Demoleier for
several years, was taken into custody a
few days ago at North Yakima, while
officers were waiting for a Government
warrant for the arrest.

State Committee Gives Notice That
Work. Is Being Organized Lead
. Ing Up. to This Situation at
the Coming Election.
BOISE. Idaho, Oct. 28. (Special.) Secre
tary Arney, of the Democratic State Com
mittee, gave out the following statement
on behalf of the committee:
The Mormons of Idaho will be challenged
as to their constitutional right to vote 4a
Idaho. Hon. Charles H. Jackson will leave
today for the southern part of the state to
take charge of the organization of the work
leading up to these constitutional chal
lenges. The state committee takes the view of the
situation that under the sworn testimony of
the leaders of the church, given in the
Smoot case, no Mormon can vote under the
provisions of the Idaho state constitution.
The commlttee'-s views of the situation have
been augmented lately by the positive state
ments made In various campaign arguments
by Senator Heyburn, in which he has con
tended, vigorously that the constitution was
an effectual bar, without- the enactment of
statute, to any one voting who teaches
polygamy, plural or celestial marriage, or
who placed the ecclesiastical above the civil
The challenges now to be made will lay
the foundation for a contest In the Congress
of the United States as to the right of Mor
mons to exercise the elective franchise un
der the provisions of the Idaho state constitution,-
as provided in section 3 of ar
ticle 6.
The constitution of the state provides
that no person can vote-who practices
polygamy,- who teaches polygamy, or be
longs to an organization that teaches po
lygamy. It also provides that the Legls-
Llature may additional qualifications
lor suffrage. Under the last-named pro
vision, the Legislature of 1891 provided a
test oath to be taken. This barred out
all who ever had taught or practiced po
lygamy or belonged to a churchj tiiat ever
had taught polygamy.
That retroactive legislative provision
was removed, in 1893, in view of the alle
gation tnat the Mormons were dealing In
good faith in their manifesto abrogating
polygamy. In 1895 another change was
made, the constitutional provision oeing
removed from the elector's oath. The
point now made by the Democrats is that
the church, as shown by testimony of
leaders, is still teaching polygamy.
It is the purpose to contest the election
of Borah, if Mormon votes in the Legis
lature make his majority, and perhaps if
Mormon votes at the polls contribute to
majorities for non-Mormon members of
the Legislature. The election of Con
gressman French may. be contested on-
similar grounds, if his majority- fall with
in the figures of the Mormon vote.
Disaffection in King County De
mands Solid Organization to
Work at the Polls.,
SEATTLE, Wash., Oct. 23. (Special.)
United States Senator Samuel H. Piles is
coming back this week to take up his
local fight again, and there will be await
ing him a delegation of Republican politi
cians who will assert that Piles' Influence
must be asserted strongly in several dis
tricts. It looks as though the only uncertainty
existed in the Thirty-second and Thirty
fifth districts, but there are five rather
bitter Senatorial contests in progress.
Senaor Piles will probably dismiss one or
two of these with the conviction that the
candidates can take care of themselves,
but he will likely . dip into at least two
Democratic politicians have opened up a
nasty fight on Joe Lyons, member of the
House during two sessions.- The fight is
rather recent, -and does not seem seri
ously to threaten his prospects. Lyons is
being fought on the ground that he has
opposed the direct primary, is against tire
local optidh bills, and voted for Ankeny
ln.1903. . . .
George F. Cotterill, who is running
against Lyons, has been a member of the
Republican, Prohibitionist, Populist, Free
Silver and Democratic- parties, and had
strong socialistic tendencies at one time.
He bolted Turner two years ago, and was
one of the populist 'electoral candidates,
but was received back into the 'Demo
cratic fold again. . He is a. strong Good
The district is peculiar. The Sixth Ward
is a -strong saloon . section, while- the
Eighth is dominated by the church vote.
Lyons Is a barber of liberal tendencies.
He has stood well in the district hereto
fore, and fear of danger to him is a re
cent complication.
Senator Piles is going .nto -a district
on Friday night to -ellver a strong ap
peal for Lyons' election. At the same
time he is expected to say plainly that he
expects the election of the entire Legisla
tive ticket. This will be repeated again
at Renton on Saturday, and at a closing
political meeting here the following Mon
day, when Piles and Humphrey conclude
the campaign at home.
That there is disaffection in King Coun
ty has been conceded all along, but com
paratively few have believed the disaffec
tion serious. As a matter- of fact, the
interest in the campaign has oeen so list
less that there is absolutely no means of
estimating the extent of the disaffection
or of foretelling the election result. The
city election showed a fusion majority,
but that is not necessarily a criterion of
an independent, vote in King. The city
campaign was complicated by a munici
pal ownership sentiment that does not af
fect Fall- politics. Tn addition. coun
try is believed to be safely Republican.
Experienced country precinct managers
have written repeatedly that they do not
need help; that their districts are safely
Republican. In the city is it extremely
difficult to put a finger on the dlsauec
tion. There is talk of trouble, but It is
more of an elusive rumor. An uneasiness,
though, exists which makes the result
precarious enough to warn'' both parties
that good organization is necessary at the
polls. If the Republicans can get out the
vote they will certainly win.
Senator Piles' home-coming may have
the effect of stirring up parry workers
and solidifying the organization. It is
planned for that effect. Two years ago
his personality saved at least one impor
tant office on the ticket, and if Senator
Piles makes a direct appeal he can probably-
repeat- that trttmph. Irr any event,
politicians are going" to put it to him that

Natural Product Is Supposed to Have
Escaped From Leaky Main
and Accumulated in Houses
Until It Is Ignited.
TOPEKA, Kan.r Oct. 28. Two per
sons were killed, one is missing, four
were seriously injured and 20 - more
were more or less injured in a terrific
explosion of natural gas. which com
pletely demolished five two-story
buildings at Coffeyville, Kan., at noon
today. The dead:
Missing Young son of C. J. Clossen, gro
cer. Seriously Injured C. J. Clossen, grocer;
Cotton Ray, a cabman; Mrs. Pearl Keller,
S-year-old son of Mrs. Keller.
It is suposed that the gas escaped
from a leaking main somewhere in the
block, and that after a sufficient quan
tity had accumulated it became ignited,
causing the explosion. The buildings
were in a row on East Eighth street,
and were occupied by a real estate
office, three stores and a restaurant.
The second floors of all the buildings
were occupied by rooming-houses.
Neither Ross nor. Mrs. McDaniel was
killed outright by the explosion, but
both were frightfully injured and died
shortly afterward at a hospital. The
entire block of five buildings was lev
eled to the ground, and only broken
brick, scattered lumber and twisted
iron remain. The buildings and stocks
in them are a total loss, as none of
them were Insured against gas explo
sion. A fire broke out immediately after
the explosion, but the flames were
quickly extinguished and little damage
was done. Since the explosion, oil men
at Coffeyville have questioned the the
ory that it was caused by escaping
gas. They are all of the opinion that
it was a nitroglycerin explosion, and
the firemen who reached the scene first
declare that they smelled dynamite, so
far as can be learned, neither nitro
glycerin nor dynamite was handled by
any occupant of the buildings.
