ROBNETT UP FIRST
Bank Clerk Charged With Sub
ornation of Perjury.
TRIAL IS TO BE AT MOSCOW
William Dwyer, Charged With De
frauding the Government of
Land in Idaho, WilJ Be the
Xext Man to Be Tried.
MOSCOW, Idaho, Nov. 9. (Special.)
i Clarence W. Robnett, bookkeeper of
the Lewlston National Bank, will be
the first defendant tried in what is
known as the land-fraud cases, which
are to come up at this term of the Fed
eral Court. District Attorney Kulck
this morning notified defendant's coun
sel to that effect. The second defend
ant to be tried Is -William Dwyer. Rob
nett is charged with subornation of
perjury and Dwyer is accused of de
frauding the Government out of land.
It Is supposed the cases against these
defendants are probably the strongest,
and for that reason the District Attor
ney has elected to try them first, for
the moral effect a conviction would
have upon the regaining cases.
Trial of the case of Robnett will be
gin Monday. The trial jury has been
summoned to report on that day, and
the grand jury, also. There is no spe
cial significance in the assembling of
the grand jury, which always convenes
with each term of court. Some rumors
are afloat to the effect that the jury
has been called ' for the purpose of
promptly dealing with any witnesses
who may not adhere strictly to the
truth in their testimony in the land
fraud cases. It Is also rumored that
there will be some probing as to land
dealing of some who are not now un
der suspicion in the public eye.

S. A. D. Puter, convicted land-fraud
operator, was made defendant in two
suits to quiet title that were filed in the

northeast quarter of the section described,
and received his certificate thereto on
June 3, 1890; that on the 2oth day of the
same month he executed a deed of con
veyance by which .the land was trans
ferred to Puter, who, on August 5 fol
lowing, transferred the property to Jones,
the other defendant. It is also alleged
in the complaint that on February 3, 1897,
the entry and certificate granted Gabriel
was cancelled by order of the General
Dand Office, and the land was transferred
to the plaintiff August 8, 19(1.

concerns the southeast quarter of the
same section, are: Nils Mike Watnee, S.

NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. Nov. 9.
(Special.) Henry H. Wende. the Demo
cratic Prosecuting Attorney-elect of Yaki

the whisky peddlers on the reservation
and the gamblers today by announcing
that he would eniorce the law to the let

Mr. Wende went into office without
promises. He did not receive the support
of the element above mentioned, neither

fulfill the law, and will carry out his oath
of office if he has the support of the
Sheriff and the law-abiding people. Traf

SUMPTER. Or., Nov. 9. (Special.) Just
208 cattle and sheep men, owners or their
agents, have been here for the past three
days In almost hourly conference with the
forest reserve officials, endeavoring to get
their allotment of range area adjusted for
These men represent over 400 owners.
whose holdings In stock and land exceed a
valuation of $10,000,000. Therange in this
division of the Blue Mountain reserve is
about 300,000 acres, and applications call
for almost as much more, even with the
previous announcement that cuts off from
10 to 40 per cent in the number of sheep
and cattle allowed for ne,xt year.
Cattlemen charge that sheepmen want
to "hog" the whole territory, and the
same charge is made by the sheepmen
against the cattlemen. The result thus
far is hot a single agreement has been
amicably made, and reserve officials will
probably have to take arbitrary action
next week in order to dispose of the mat
Owners of private timber lands
amounting to over 100,000 acres, are get
ting two and three times as much per
acre as Is stated to be the price of the
Government. Sheepmen charge that pri
vate owners are favoring cattlemen and
using their influence to get the Govern
ment owners to do the same.
Superintendent Sheller has innounced
that small owners and men who person
ally reside In the hills and have sheep or
cattle will be the only ones favored. The
only matter on which the two factions
are a unit Is the fight to keep out all who
were not in the range last year. .
The meeting will probably be prolonged
until next week, to await the presence of
Western Reserve Chief A. F. Potter, of
Washington, who is expected to settle dif
ferences that have arisen.
WRIGHTMAN SLATED TO GO
Benson Will Make Drennan Head of
SALEM, Or., Nov. 9. (Special.) Frank
T. Wrlghtman, head of the corporation
department in the office of the Secretary
of State, will not retain his position under
F. W. Benson, against whom "Wrlghtman
was a candidate for nomination. He will
be succeeded by Walter Drennan, who
was Benson's right-hand man in the pri
mary campaign last Spring. Though Ben
son has made no official announcement,
he has been in Salem for several days,
conferring with friends, and it is learned
from a reliable source that Wrightman's
term will end as soon as Benson's begins.
Walter Drennan is a resident of Port
land. For a number of years he was a
locomotive engineer on the Southern Pa
cific south of Roseburg but in 1901 he
wan caught in a terrific head-on collision
and lost his right arm. Since then he has
heen: traveling for a railroad insurance
concern. His large acquaintance and pop
ularity among railroad men made him a
valuable political supporter. In the pri
mary campaign last Spring he devoted
much of his time to Benson's cause, and
it is understood that Benson credits his
success to Drennan's work."
After the primary election in April, it
was found that in a number of places in
Eastern Oregon in which Wrightman was
supposed to be particularly strong in his
candidacy, he ran short in votes and Ben
son took the lead. This seemed to con
firm a report that gained circulation at
the time that "Wrlghtman made a trade
with Benson and telegraphed his friends
to support the latter.
Since Benson's first act will be to sever
"Wrightman's official head, this report
must have been erroneous. There have
been many aspirants for Wrightman's po
sition, whicu is a desirable one, though
the salary is but I1S00 a year.
RAN'DS MAY BE PRESIDENT
Three Washington State Senators El
igible for the Place.
SEATTLE, Wash., Nov. 9. (Special.)
Only four members of the next State
Senate have seen more than two sessions'
experience in the upper house, and ac
cording to precedent the President pro
tern of the Senate should be chosen from
their number. All four of these men
have been in the upper house since 1901.
They are: T. B. Sumner, Everett; E. M.
Rands, Vancouver; Lincoln Davis, Ta
coma, and A. S. Ruth, Olympia.
The Senate is overwhelming in its align
ment for the Piles-Ankeny interests and
it is probable that the President pro tern,
will be a Senator who belongs to that
faction. If this conclusion is held, Ruth
will be read out of the list of eligibles,

FEW BAGS FOR FARMERS

Lack of Material.
TACOMA, Wash., Nov. 9. (Special.) As
a result of neglect of the State Board of
Control to secure a supply of Jute for
operation of the grain bag factory in the
State Penitentiary, farmers in Eastern
Washington will be mulcted of $500,000 to
$750,000, possibly more, during the coming
The jute mill has been practically shut
down the past two months, running less
than one day a week, on account of lack
of jute. It Is announced today by Warden
Kincaid, who was chairman of the board
up to two weeks ago, that no jute had yet
been ordered. It will require at least 70
days for it to reach here, after being
shipped from Calcutta.
This will mean that less than a month's
run can be secured before the sack sea
son next year, and the output will be so
small that it will not affect the market
in the least. The Board of Control ex
cuses Inaction on account of not having'
money In the revolving fund.

Are Elected by Small Majorities.
SOUTH BEND, Wash., Nov. 9. (Spe
cial.) According to returns from all pre
cincts but one in Pacific County and dis
patches from Wahkiakum County on the
State Senatorial election, Kleeb loses by
82 votes and Collings by 36. The former

the first Democrats to the Legislature
from this county in the persons of H. S.
McGowan for the Senate and T. H. Bell
for the house.
Recount of the ballots will be asked
for, as there are a number of circum

that the result would thus be changed.

elected, except that J. J. Brumbach,
Dem., is elected County Attorney and
Mrs. C. A. Murdock, Dem., is elected
County Superintendent of Schools.

Delayed Train Helps O. R. & N.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Nov. 9. Delays to a
Northern Pacific train this morning won
an important point for the O. R. & N.
Co. against the Spokane & Inland Rail
road in the Supreme Court. The Spokane
road recently in the Whitman County Su
perior Court secured a decree authorizing
it to cross the tracks of the O. R. & N.
Co. at grade at a number of points. The
Portland line gave notice of a petition
for a writ of review by the Supreme
Court. At 10 o'clock this morning, when
the Supreme Court took up the petition,
the O. R. & N. counsel was on hand,
and after presenting his application a
writ was issued, ordering the Whitman
Judge to submit here all records in the
case for a final hearing January 17, and,
ordering all. proceedings stayed until then.
Will Graves, attorney for the Spokane
road, reached Tacoma In plenty of time,
but the train here from Tacoma was more
than an hour late, so he did not arrive at
court until the writ had been granted.
The same train brought Seattle attorneys
coming to resist a motion to dismiss
their appeal from the $1000 judgment, and
they also arrived too late, as the appeal
had been dismissed.

VANCOUVER. Wash., Nov. 9. (Spe
cial.) Private Simmons, musician of Com
pany H, Fourteenth Infantry, who de
serted from American Lake during the
encampment last Summer, was accident
ally shot in the back last night by Po
liceman Secrist about 9:45 P. M. Sim
mons, who is a morphine fiend, is about
25 years of age, and has served four years
in the Army, coming here from the East.
Simmons brought a beautiful girl with
him, whom he afterward married.
The police were notified as soon as the
troops returned from American Lake to
be on the lookout for Simmons, ut were
unable to get any track of him up till
last night, when he came over from Port
land to see his wife. He was arrested by
Officer Secrist, who started to take him
to Jail. Simmons struck Secrist, and
started to run. Secrist called to him to
stop, but Simmons paid no attention to
Secrist fired two shots in the air, and
the third he fired at the ground, the ball
striking a flat rock and glancing up struck
the escaping prisoner in the back. Sim
mons was taken to the post hospital at
once, where Dr. Flagg, military surgeon.
performed an operation, but was unsuc
cessful in finding the ball. The operation
lasted about three hours.
On the way to the hospital the prisoner
remarked: "I got just what I expected
when 1 started to run."
Chief of Police Bateman found the stone
that the ball struck this morning. The
mark left by the bullet can be seen
plainly. Simmons was also charged with
stealing Government property. The doc
tors say the wound will prove fatal.

if Incurable, many cases of pri
mary or Incipient baldness have
been completely cured with New
bro's Herpicide, the original remedy
that "kills the dandruff -Kerm." Of
course, the rational plan Is to save
the hair while there Is hair to save,
but even after It Is gone there Is a
"flghtinsr chance" If the hair fol
licles are not atrophied. Herpicide
stops itching of the scalp Instantly.
