JACKSONVILLE. Or., July 31. (Spe

here to the effect that the Pacific &
Eastern Railway Company, is making
preparations to build to the coast, 150
miles, to a terminus not yet selected.

outlet over the Jackson Creek divide.
From what can be learned. It Is the in
tention of the company to build up Jack
son Creek to the Lower Applegate, when
a turn toward the Blue Ledge district
will be made In order to get as near as
possible to that rich mineral section.
In all probability the road will strike
the coast at a point below Crescent City.

HORSETHIEVES ARE CAUGHT
Two Members of a Gang Lodged In
PENDLETON. Or., July 31. (Special.)
Roy Connell and Jim Price, two members
Df the gang of horsethleves which has
been terrorizing the southern end of the
county for several months, are now lodged
In the county Jail. The former was
picked up in this city a few days ago
by Sheriff Taylor and the latter was
brought from Baker City this morning
by that officer. The officers are also In
possession of strong evidence against
a third rustler, who has apparently made
tils temporary get-away. Two othei mem
bers of the gang are known, but so far
there Is not sufficient evidence against
them to warrant their arrest. This gang
of thieves became so bold in their oper
ations last Winter and Spring that many
of the ranchers in the Alba country be
came intimidated by them and were
afraid to make complaint to the officers.
The present arrest of Price and Con
aell Is the result of their stealing a small
band of valuable horses and driving them

HONOR JUDGE BOISE'S MEMORY
Memoirs and Resolutions Presented
to State Circuit Court.
SALEM, Or., July 31. (Special.)
The memory of the late Judge R. P.
Boise, Jurist, legislator and statesman,
was honored yesterday when memoirs
and resolutions on his death were pre
sented to the State Circuit Court for
Marion County. Today the same tes
timonial was presented to the State
. Supreme Court, and copies were sent
to the family, of the deceased. The res
olutions were drafted by a committee
' from the Marion County Bar Associa
tion, consisting of Tllmon Ford. R. S.
' Bean, W. M. Lord. John B. Waldo, and
George H. Burnett.
By his associates. Judge' Boise was
recognized as one of the state's most
honored pioneers, and a. prominent fac
tor in shaping the destiny of the com
monwealth. In 1857- he was Repre
sentative from Polk County to the Con
stitutional convention, where he took
a leading part In furnishing Oregon
with its fundamental law. The reso
lutions refer to the fact that the de
ceased for 50 continuous years offi
cially served the people of his state,
without a single tarnish on his record,
and evinced a high order of legal abil
ity and conscientious regard for hl
duty. In conclusion, the following high
tribute was paid the dead Jurist:
"He was a model Oregonlan and was
: regarded as such by his fellow-citizens.
In the course of the long career of
' Judge Boise, not the slightest doubt
Of his integrity ever arose. As an hon
est, incorruptible Judge, hl life Is one
that should challenge the admiration
and emulation of every lawyer and
good citizen. Judge Boise was one of
. the few men of whom it can be truth
fully said: 'He was Incapable of doing
a wrong act intentionally." "

WASTEWAY TO PROTECT ROAD
O. R. & X. in Danger From Canal
on Umatilla Irrigation Project.
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington. July 31. Authority has been
granted to the engineer in charge of the
Umatilla irrigation project in Oregon to
construct a wasteway on the storage feed
on the canal about three-fourths of a
mile below the town of Echo. The point
at which this structure will be built con
trols the operation of the canal through
out a section about four miles long where
the canal very closely parallels the O. R.
& N. Railroad.
This section has been considered as
threatening the safety of the railroad,
owing to its close proximity. Its loca
tion on a steep slope directly above the
tracks and also to the fact that a ditch
which has not been on such substantial
lines as Government work lies immediate
ly above the projected canal through
most of . this distance. The estimated
cost of the waterway is $3750. It will be
in readiness for operation next Spring.

Complaint for Better Service

men at Salem Also Object to
SALEM. Or., July 31. (Special.) Now
that the subject of the passenger train
service, so far as No. 12, northbound, is
concerned, has haji Its hearing, and an
order is pending before the Railroad
Commission, the attention of this body Is
being called to northbound Overland No.
16 by Southern Oregon patrons, wno de
pend solely upon this . train for local
service. Only one formal "complaint has
been lodged in writing and this Is an
anonymous communication bearing-the
signature of "A Commercial Traveler.
This complainant represents that this
train, upon which the whole of Southern
Oregon has- to depend, has not been on
time nor within three hours of schedule
time for the past six or eight months, and
when it does show up It comes In two sec
tions, the first carrying only through

Is over an hour late,, to run a stub train
between Ashland and Roseburg The
Commission is not disposed to take Offi
cial cognizance of anonymous communi
cations and has been endeavoring to as
certain the author of the complaint.
As a particular Instance for complaint
the author, who writes from Grant's
Pass, cites the conditions existing on July
24. He Bays the first section arrived at
that point two hours late, carrying- only
through sleepers, .when there were 10 or
12 traveling men waiting and requesting
sleeper accommodations, but not one
could secure a berth, and there were be
tween 30 and 40 local passengers, among
them . several women and children, who
were compelled to wait for the second
ection, carrying day. coaches.
- Complaint nas been filed with the Rail
road Commission by various draying
firms against the alleged inadequate and
inconvenient freight depot and freight-
handling facilities at Salem. ' They ask
that the Southern Pacific be required to
employ more help to assist in handling
the freight and to utilize Its abandoned
warehouses for depot annexes to provide
shelter for goods.
The Southern Pacific has commodious
warehouses at this station, located close
to the freight depot. These were for
merly used for storing hops and house
hold goods but, since the Interstate Com
merce law went into effect prohibiting
railroads from conducting a warehouse
and storage business, they have been
