. trict Attorney to have stated on a
' visit to St. Helens shortly after the
killing that Gardiner, by threats, com
pelled her to sustain relations with

BAKER FACES COAL FAMINE
INDUSTRIES STILLED BECAUSE
OF LACK OF FUEL.
Railroads Still Unable to Fill Orders
and Suffering Is Feared Unless
, Supply Is Secured.
BAKER CITY, Or.. July 30. (Special.)
The question now uppermost in the
friinds of Baker City people is wheti.er
or not they will be able to secure coal
this Winter. A few days ago press dis
patches from New York announced that
the Harriman lines had secured a re
duction on the freight rates on coal that
the local dealers might lay in their sup
plies of the precious material during
the Summer months when cars were to
But after all has been said and done
by the railroads Baker City continues
to be without coal, and . there are no
prospects of securing a supply for this
Winter. Very little coal is passing
through here and still Kss is oeing re
ceived by the local dealers.
The question is one that affects nearly
every industry in this part of the state
and many of the large mines are now
lying Idle because of their inability to
secure coal to furnish power to run
them. Several mines are being equipped
with electric power to avoid the neces
sity of waiting for coal.
The local dealers are now receiving
coal for which they had orders in more
than a year ago. At that time one
dealer had a standing order for a carload
every five days and during the last
year has received in the neighborhood
of six cars. The other dealers have fared
no better and the people are anxious that
something should be done to relieve the
situation. If coal, and a large supply
of It, cannot be obtained thl3 Fall, there
will be a great deal of suffering in
Baker City for many of the business
blocks and hou.es are equipped with coal
furnaces and cannot use wood. Even
wood Is unobtainable in the Winter time,
because of the great demand.

What the Pupils Are Taught.
The school is known as the Salem Indian
School, and In It we are taught the domestic
arts and mechanical Industries, as well as
receiving a common school education.
It 1b the aim of the onea In charge of In

doing- these things, and not toy reading about
Our boys are taught farming, gardening,
dairying, baking, tailoring, printing, painting.
carpentry. wagon-making, harness-making.
blacksmlthing, plumbing and engineering.
They raise all the fruits and vegetables
used by the school; they do all the milking,
butter-making and caring for the stock. All
the cooking and baking is done by the boys
and In the tailoring department they make all
their clothes. The publishing of the Chemawa
America, our weekly newspaper, has been done
mostly by the boys, and the things made by
them in the different shops are turned out
for the use of the school. They also take
care of their own rooms and keep their build
ings In order.
Work in Domestic Science.
Our girls are taught the domestic arts, such
as cooking, sewing, laundering and general
housekeeping. They are also taught nursing.
In the dressmaking department they make
all the dresses for the girls and In the laun
dTy they do all the laundering for the school.
In the hospital the patients are cared tor
by the girls who are training to become
nurses. They also keep their rooms and
buildings neat and clean. McDrlde Hall, or

the state for their skill In all sports.
We never lack for pleasure during the school
months, as there Is a series of parties, so
cials and entertainments given by the differ
ent clubs and societies.
But pleasure Is not the object that the
young Indian who enters Chemawa as a
pupil has in view. He comes here to work and
study and better his chances for the future,
and with this object In view he Is sure to
succeed, as there Is everything hers for one

OREGON CITY BEGINS FIGHT
Inaugurates Crusade Against Open
Gambling at Mllwaukie.
OREGON CITT, Or., July 30. (Spe
cial.) Four Protestant churches of this
city have leagued together in an ef
fort to have the Mllwaukie Club closed,
and has presented written requests to
District Attorney Gilbert Hedges
and Sheriff Beatie. The former is out
of the city and Sherif Beatie said this
afternoon that the authorities were not
at this time in possession of sufficient
evidence to proceed against the
gambling resort. The county officials
seem to take the view that this is a
matter for the municipality of Mll
waukie to decide, as the club is within
the corporate limits of that town. It
has not been the policy of the Clacka
mas County officials to Interfere with
the government of the small towns of
the county, but District Attorney
Hedges last Saturday said that he in
tenled to enforce the - Sunday-closing
law in Canby, Barlow and Estacada,
all incorporated towns, and the church
people evidently believe that this Is
an opening wedge."
"It is a matter of much regret to us
that Clackamas County should be made
the dumping ground for the evils of
Multnomah," said Rev. R. C. Blackwell,
pastor of the , Methodist . Episcopal
Church, this afternoon. "The gambling
place should unquestionably be closed,
to Improve the moral atmosphere not
"only of the town of Mllwaukie, but to
remove the stigma that has been cast
vupon the wholer of Clackamas County
by the operation of such vile joint. We
have not placed ourselves In the posl
ton of condemning the county of
ficials, who have authority to close the
plade, but have merely asked them, to
end this deplorable condition."
In the Methodist, Baptist, Presby
terian and Congregational churches
last Sunday resolutions were presented
and unanimously adopted by a standing
vote on the part of the people present.
The clergymen say that by this action
probably 1000 residents of Oregon City
have asked the officials to act. The
"We, the members of the Methodist,
Baptist, Presbyterian and Congrega
tional churches of Oregon City, having
been Informed that there Is a notorious
gambling club In operation at Mllwau
kie, consider, tnls a disgrace to Clacka
mas County. As citizens of this coun
ty, we request you. In your official
capacity as executive officers, to en-
force the law in regard to this insti
tution." Ever since the Milwaukie Club
was opened quiet murmurs of protest
from the traveling publio have been
heard in condemnation of the place
and of the presence of a large number
of gamblers and race-track touts on
th farm whn iiKTinllv travel In Hunches
and discuss their nefarious vocation In
tne hearing of passengers.

CAPTATX MAKES COMPLAINT
AGAINST PETE ANDERSON.
Wants Law to Protect His Vessel
From Bombardment at
ST. HELENS. Or., July 30. (Special.)
The captain of the tug Wauna, of .lie
Shaver line, made complaint before the
District Attorney here today of the ac
tion of Pete Anderson, who owns some
land on Sauvies Island at Willow Bar.
It appears that Pete has something of
the Viking about him and believes In
taking the law into his own ..ands, and
when the Wauna's waves washed away
some of Pete's real estate he considered
himself Justified in opening fire upon the
boat, putting several shots through dif
ferent parts of its woodwork without re
gard .as to whether the bullets found hu
man targets. As men are scarce, and this
is not Pete's first offense, the captain
intends to ascertain whether the law can
restrain the belligerent Swede.
