Jury at midnight last night returned Its
findings in the supplementary inquest
over the body of Miss Adelaide Roper,
who was cruelly murdered at Blaine on
the night of January 19. The jury rec
ommended that William A. Dell, who was
night watchman on the night of the crime
be held for further Investigation. The
public was not admitted to the hearing
and officers refused to divulge what was
brought out. About 15 witnesses were
examined: many of whom were not at
the first inquest. The body of the young
woman was exhumed, and placed in the
courtroom and it took the jury less than
half an hour to reach a decision.

HANS HOLT is a wifebeater, but
then he had considerable temptation
to become one. Such was the verdict of a
jury which tried Holt in Judge Cleland's
division of the Circuit Court yesterday
afternoon. The jury recommended len
iency, otherwise Holt might have been
sentenced to the whipping-post.
The case revealed an unhappy domestic
state in the Holt household. Wife and
husband agree that a few mornings ago
the head of the family wanted to lace his
shoes from a comfortable nook in front
of the kitchen hearth. Mrs. Holt ob
jected to this, as she was preparing
breakfast 'at the time. There was an ex
change of words, Mrs. Holt threw a
handful of salt intended for the steak
into hubby's eyes and then
Thereafter their stories conflict. Mrs.
Holt says her lord and master arose and
blacked her eyes, striking her twice with
clenched fists. Holt says he seized her
to save himself from further salt and
that in getting away she struck her eyes
against the door-knob. There was no
third party to the affair and the jury
made allowances for possible deviation
from the truth by finding Holt guilty and
recommending the mercy of the court.
Judge Cleland will pass sentence on the
convicted man this morning.

Friction Shown In Olympia legisla
ture Governor Signs Bill Con
solidating State Funds.
Other Work Yesterday.
OLYMPIA, Wash., Feb. 7. (Special.)
This morning the Senators, most of whom
are city residents, calmly slaughtered the
bill which had passed the House increas
ing: the annual levy for state roads from
one-fourth to "not to exceed one-halt
mill," and this afternoon the country
members of the House defeated by an
equally decisive vote the bill designed to
allow the use of part of the county road
and bridge fund in improvements to
streets within cities which connect with
The chief argument against the Senate
action was along the line that it was
unwise to slap the House by indefinite
postponement when it was so easy to kill
the bill in committee. The argument the
city House members put up for the pass
age of the bill is that the cities have for
years contributed a majority of the county
road and bridge funds and have received
no benefit so far as improving any city
streets Is concerned, but the farmer mem
bers declared they have to pay their share
of maintaining courts and the rest of tne
county government, largely for the use
of the city, and that they wanted their
road funds for their county highways.
This was the first time this session the
House has killed on final vote one of its
own bills and the first time the Senate
has killed a House bill. The Senate in
cidentally killed by the vote of 6 ayes
to 32 noes the bill offered by Jones, the
President Pro Tern, which sought to re
peal the old territorial law prohibiting
enticing sailors from one ship to .another.
Consolidate All State Funds.
The Governor today signed the House
bill which provides for a consolidation
of all current funds in the general fund.

At the afternoon session the House
committee on rules reported back with
amendments the resolution passed by the

Legislature, while the original resolution
permitted the investigation to extend be

A resolution by Bassett of Adams was
passed authorizing the open river con
ferees to meet Oregon and Idaho legis

on motion of Reld, concurred in the Sen
ate amendments to H. B. 43, which creates
a State Board of Finance, consisting of
the Governor, Treasurer and Auditor, and
directs the investment of all permanent
state funds in bonds drawing not less
than 334 per cent interest.
There are today in excess of $670,000
cash to be invested under this bill, money
that has been accumulating in banks for
years with no return to the state. The
bill has an emergency clause and will take
effect when signed by the Governor, which
will probably be tomorrow.
Relatives to Help Care for Insane.
At the morning session of the House
18 new bills were introduced, two of which
provide different methods for requrrrng

care of patients in the insane asylum.
Another bill provides for the erection of
a statue of Isaac I. Stevens, first Gover

Four new bills were introduced in the
Senate, one of which, like a new House
bill, authorizes the state to purchase a
bridge across the Columbia River at Wen

limit for railroad employes and a bill
allowing Pomeroy to reorganize. That

COMMITTEE GETS TANGLED VP
Lively Session Over" Bills for Con
OLYMPIA, Wash., Feb. 7. (Special.)
Megler's House committee on con
gressional apportionment finally got
busy with the congressional apportion
ment matter today. It had one of the
liveliest sessions in the history of any
committee this year, and wound up in
a tangle. Megler, the Nestor of tho
Legislature, 'has some strongly im
bedded convictions and possesses to a
marked degree what friends call firm
ness and others, less charitable, desig
nate as stubbornness. Megler is op
posed to dividing the state at this time
into congressional districts, arguing
for one reason that there has been no
state census taken for years and that
an apportionment at best must be
based upon guesswork.
The committee got together this
afternoon to discuss the Gregg appor
tionment bill, and Halleman, of Stev

Discuss an Open River.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Feb. 7. (Special.)
Nearly 40 members of the Legisla
ture assembled this afternon in x re
sponse to a call for a meeting of "all
friends of the open river." A general
discussion was had of the situation,
particularly of the letter of Congress
man Jones, stating, in his opinion, the
bill before the Legislature providing
for a state commission, etc., was ill
advised. This expression of opinion was gen
erally commended by those present,
and the committee decided to frame
a new bill which would simply provide
an appropriation of $300,000, or as
much thereof as the Legislature will
appropriate, to be expended under the
direction of the United States Govern
men, as provided for in Jones' amend
ment to the rivers and harbors bill.
The bill will be drawn at once, and a

on entertainments. Without special dis
cussion, the faculty sustained the action
of its committee on the ground that a

have already been given, and the dance,
if permitted, would seriously interfere
with the work of the class in the prep

test over the dance has gone on for some

SUITS TO GET RIGHT OF WAY
Southern PaciTic Begins on Natron
EUGENE, Or.. Feb. 7. The Southern
Pacific Company has Instituted con
demnation proceedings in the Circuit
Court for Lane County against two
property-owners east of Eugene for a
right of way through their lands for
the proposed Natron-Klamath exten
sion. In the County Court yesterday the
railroad company, through its agent,
J. B. Eddy, right-of-way man, an
nounced its intention to erect a depot
at Springfield Junction, formerly Hen
derson Station, two miles east of Eu
gene. Springfield Junction is the point
where the Springfield cutoff branch, re
cently completed by the company, jo4ns
the main line, and is where all the trains
of the proposed Natron-Klamath exten
sion and the Natron-Ontario extension
will proceed on the main line to Port
land and San Francisco. It is probable
that a town will be built there, and
it is possible that a division point may
be established in that vicinity, with
tne consequent roundhouses, shops and
other terminal buildings.

made complaint to the railroad commis

liminary to ordering a formal hearing on
this complaint, the commission sent cop
ies of the complaint to the railroad. The
commission announced the receipt of a
notice from the railway, canceling the
