Witnesses Called to Washing

BROWN AMD WEST LEAVE
Others Included In List of 150 Ap
plicants for School Lands As
signed Hyde and Associates.
Will Appear April 2fl.
fiALEM. Or., April 17. (Special.)
(subpoenas have been Issued and wit
nesses have been summoned to appear
at Washington. D. C, April 22 and May
1 to give evidence In the celebrated
Benson-Hyde land fraud case, which
is to come up for hearing directly af
ter the conclusion of the Hermann trial,
which, it is believed, will be concluded
this week. Among the most prominent
of those subpoenaed in the Hyde case
are Clerk G. G. Brown of the State I,and
Board, and Oswald West, railroad com
missioner end formerly State Land
Agent, who will leave for the capitol
tomorrow to be in attendance April 22.
The others subpoenaed are included in
the list of about 150 applicants for
state school lands which were assigned
to F. A. Hyde and bis associates. These
will start some time next Week.
The history of the Benson-Hyde land
operations Is pretty well known to the
general public. All of the land to
which title was secured by Hyde and
his colleagues is situated In lie Cas
cade Forest Reserve, which was created
In 18R3. The lands were purchased in
J!8 at $1.26 per acre, upon certificates
obtained from 150 applicants. Hyde
and his associates attempted to use
them as the bases for the selection of
valuable timber and other lands outside
of the reserve, but, upon a ruling made
by the Commissioner of the General
1-and Office, Blnger Hermann, they
were abut out.
Conspiracy Is Alleged.
It was then, through the alleged con
nivance of Hyde, Benson and other In
fluences. Congress enacted the lieu land
act wiilch validated the certificates
and deeds and a reversal of the previ
ous ruling of the Commissioner was se
cured. F.ach of the certificates repre
sented an average of 320 acres of state
school land, all situated in the Cascade
Reserve and aggregate about 48,000
Commissioner West and Clerk Brown,
of the Land Board, departed from here
this afternoon, and expect to embark for
Washington tomorrow morning. Brown
was assistant clerk of the board under
M. L. Chamberlain at the time the lands
were taken up, and is subpenaed as cus
todian of the offlce records. A complete

MORE LOGS THAN MILLS NEED
Timber Land, Therefore, Becomes
Drag" on Market.
SEATTLE. Wash., April 17. (Special.)
Because of the car shortage, the market
for timber lands has collapsed and timber
operators claim that It Is practically im
possible to dispose of their timber hold
ings. There is now accumulating a sur
plus of logs, despite the fact that the
logging camp capacity for the past Win
ter has been far below the average. This
circumstance has a tendency to depre
ciate the value of timber holdings.
Loggers assert that the logging output
during the Summer will be above the ca
pacity of the mills and that there will be
difficulty In, maintaining existing prices.
It is not expected, though, that any
serious break in the market will follow.
In the meantime timber holdings must
remain an Impractical property for trad
ing purposes and timber speculators
do not believe that the market will pick
tip until the car situation permits a free
movement of lumber and shingles.

as Vagabond at Seattle.
SEATTLE, Wash., April 17. (Special.)
Robert Charlton Lee, Oxford graduate,
minister of the gospel for a score of
years, and a man of much brilliance and
eloquence, was arrested last night while
on the verge of delirium tremens and
was locked up In the City Jail to sober
up. Picked up from the gutter by a
former member of his church choir and
started on the straight path again. Lee
has fallen so many times lately that his
friends have ceased to forbear and have
caused his arrest. Incidentally, he Is
also held for pawning a watch which
did not belong to him to obtain liquor.
Three years ago, at the time of the
death of his wife at Coos Bay, Or., a life
of great promise was blasted by strong
drink. So low did the former minister of
the gospel sink in the social scale that
he was only a piece of flotsam In the
murky waters of the lowest tides of hu
manity In Seattle, when he was rescued
from one of the lowest dives - of the
city last July by L. K. Nichols, a for

bois. of Idaho, Is engaged in an attempt
to make political capital out of the re
port that Senator Borah has been in

It was Mr. Iubols who circulated the

certain employes, whom It wished to

refused, and alleged that in consequence
pickets were placed about the entrance

Work of Compiling State Laws '
Greater Than Ever Before.
SALEM, Or., April 17. (Special.)
The body of the session laws Is now
printed and covers 538 pages as against
4KB in 1905. It will be ready tor the
binder as soon as the index can be
completed by Frank Davey, who is
workins; at it industriously, but the job
is necessarily tedious, and could not
be done until after the printing. The
laws will probably be ready for dis
tribution early in May, and the journals
of the Senate and House a short time
There has been no time for several
years when the work of indexing the
session laws has been so laborious and
important as it io this year. The past
session of the Legislature enacted en
tirely new and complete codes on sev
eral very important subjects; notably
the laws governing assessment and
taxation, railroads and transportation
and banks and banking. The
school laws were extensively amended
and rewritten, including long chapters
covering union high schools and county
high schools, their organization and
government. The Port of Columbia bill,
and the bill putting tn operation for
cities and towns the initiative and ref
erendum, are also extensive in their
provisions and require elaborate index
ing. Mr. Davey's system of indexing al
phabetically by subjects, sub-Indexing
each provision under the head of each
subject, and then cross-indexing, as to
each separate provision of an act under
different heads, is very thorough and
comprehensive. The index of the laws
of the session of 1905 covered about 60
printed pages, while that of the laws
of the last session, as prepared by Mr.
Davey, will take up more than double
that amount of space, giving an idea
of the immense volume of acts adopted
by the recent Legislature.
The Senate journals have been
copied, compared and sent to the print
er, and the House Journals will be fin
ished this week. The Senate journal
will make the larger book this year,
proportionately as the Speaker almost
entirely eliminated the rollcalls on first
and second reading of bills, which re

OREGON CITY, Or., April 17. (Spe

says that the cost of printing would be

than have ever been printed. He s?iys the

The experience of Mr. UTten stands
him In good stead in. figuring on this
matter. He bases the cost of addressing
and filling 100,000 envelopes at 4 per
thousand, totaling 400. The envelopes
can be supplied and printed for $5 per
thousand, or J500. and he believes that
the cost of securing the names and post
office addresses of 100.000 voters will not
exceed $1500. Mr. U' Ren's figures sum
marized are as follows:

"The publication of proclamations is not
required by the new law of 1907, and the
item of 15000 for that purpose must be
eliminated from the cost. Mr. TJ'Ren be
lieves that his estimate is conservative.
