SEATTLE, Wash.. Aug. 23. (Special.)
James J. Hill's rejoinder to R. L. Mc
Cormlck, the secretary of the Weyer
haeuser timber syndicate, who was sent
East to ask the Great Northern mag
nate whether the railroads really In
tended to put into effect the 10-cent ad
Vance In lumber and shingle rates from
this Coast, was an emphatic and un
qualified statement that the -roads not
only Intended to make the rate effect
ive on October 1, but that they are con
vinced It can be made to hold against
an attack before the Interstate Com
merce Commission and the courts.
Mr. Hill declared the western roads,
because of the Increase In every Item
of railroad operation, can show the
lumber cannot be handled at present
figures. Within the past seven years
the cost of transportation of freight
per ton per mile on the Great North
ern, which contributes the lumber traf
fic, has always had to be supported by
the - east end.
Ex-Senator John C. Spooner will not
be engaged by the lumbermen for the
combined attack of the Pacific Coast
mlllmen against the transcontinental
railroads. Instead, It Is probable Frank
Kellogg, who has been aiding the Gov
ernment's fights against the railroads,
will be given an attractive offer. It Is
understood Rllogg has been wanted
to continue the Interstate Commerce
Commission's inquiries Into rebating,
but the mlllmen will offer him far more
than the government can pay.

was immediately followed by the first
heat of the race, and then the horse
was driven up and down the track for
a time before the second heat. In the
scoring, the horse had cut one of Its
front feet and in addition was breath

had been overworked and told Vaughn
so when he started to get ready for
the second heat. As his suggestion was
not heeded, West told Vaughn that
if the horse was put Into that heat,
then he would have the driver arrested
for cruelty to animals.
A few hot words followed and In a
moment there was a lively fist fight

DIES OF A BROKEN HEART
PATHETIC ENDING TO LIFE OF
MRS. PETER SENFTEN.
Denlcd by Will Her Husband's
Property, Aged Woman Brutally
Robbed Just Before Death.
HILLSBORO, Or.; Aug. 23. (Special.)
Denied by her husband's will the right
ful enjoyment of a small fortune sne
herself had, by hard work, helped to
attain, and a few weeks ago brutally
robbed In her lonely home of the few re
maining dollars, Mrs. Peter Senften died
of a broken heart.
Her story is a pathetic one. Thirty
five years ago Peter Senften and wife,
then but recently from Switzerland, set
tled on 40 acres of land near Cedar Mill,
about eight mffes from Portland. They
had but little money left after paying
$400 for the tract. By frugality they
built a little home, and in 1904, when the
husband died, the 40 acres was valued at
$1000, and he had accumulated, besides,
the modest sum of about $5000, whl'h he
had in money, notes and securities.
At the death of the husband his will
was entered in probate. The widow was
dissatisfied with the terms of the will,
which gave her only $100 In cash, the
household furniture, and a life lease of
the land, she to pay the taxes. The bal
ance of the estate was willed to a few
personal friends, these little legacies
amounting to $860, and the residue of
personal property was bequeathed to the
American Tract Society, New York;
Christ's Mission, New York and Goss
ner's Mission, B.erlin, Germany. The
real estate was to be sold after tha
death of the widow, and Rev. Abraham
Hager. of Alberta. Canada, was to have
one-third: the Orphans' Asylum, founded
by Dr. Edward Blosch, at Berne, Switz
erland, one-third, and the other third
was to go, share and share alike, 'to the
three societies participating in the per
The testator willed that the money to
go to the Gossner Mission was to be
spent fti missionary work on the tribe
known as the ".Xohls," in East India.
Christ Zuercher. a prominent Swiss resi
dent of Cedar Mill, was named as exec
utor, and he made an attempt to save
some of the personal property for the
widow, who vas then 72 years of age
and very feeble. He entered into an
agreement with the three societies, which
were willed the personal property, paying
them $500 each. This was accepted, and
the widow was gainer several hundred
dollars. The widow agreed to permit
the real estate to pass as willed.
On August 5, of this year, a masked
man entered Mrs. Senften's home, where
she lived a secluded life, and robbed the
old woman, 76 years of age, gagging her
so she could make no outcry. The thief
secured between $60 and $100.
After the robbery Mrs. Senften went to
a neighbor's to remain nights, and the
last week of her life was induced to go
to the home of Mrs. Robert Thompson,
whom she and Senften had reared. The
aged woman was badly shocked over the
robbery. She grieved over leaving the
home where she had lived for 35 years,
and died the- first of the week of a
DOUBTS INDIAN WOMAN'S AGE
Agent Eells Says No Definite Way of
TACOMA, Wash., Aug. .3. (Special.)
While the death of the aged Indian
woman, Mrs. Julienne Custolock, an Fox
Island Sunday at the reputed age of 120
years attracted much attention, there
seems to be some doubt as to whether
the woman had attained such great age
as was told by one of her acquaintances.
Edwin Eells, who vai the Indian Agent
for many years and who took the cen
sus of the Indians on Puget Sound In 1890
and 1900 says Mrs. Custolock was proba
bly a member of the Gig Harbor band
of the Nisqually tribe. Mr. Eells says
he found It very difficult In taking the
census to get at the age of the Indians.
They kept no written records and the only
way to fix any date was to compare It
to some Important event and he doubts
if Mrs. Custolock could be 120 years old
as even 100 years Is an unusual age for
Indians on the Sound.

not so pronounced elsewhere as It Is
here in Oregon. Though Hughes has
not been discussed in the newspapers
so much as Taft, there is a very strong

ALBUM HAS UNIQUE HISTORY
Astoria's Mayor Gets Back Old Ap- j
plication for Political Job.
ASTORIA, Or.. Aug. 23. (Special.)
Probably the most unique application ever
filed with the Postoffloe Department was
the one sent by Mayor Herman Wise in
March. 1893, prior to his appointment as
Postmaster at Astoria. The application
was addressed to ex-President Grover
Cleveland. It was In the form of an
album containing views of this city and
points of interest pn the Pacific Coast,
many letters of recommendation and a
long list of signers to the formal petition
requesting Mr. Wise's appointment. In
this list are the names of the most prom
inent Democrats in the state, many of
whom have since passed away. After this
album had been made a record of the
department it attracted considerable at
tention and descriptions of it were pub
lished in a number of Eastern papers.
The rule of the department is that the
application of an appointee shall remain
on file. ut Mr. Wise has been success
ful in bringing sufficient influence to bear
to have this rule set aside and the album
was returned to him today. It bears evi
dence of having been handled by thou
sands of people, as It was one of the
curiosities of the department, but is still
in a good state of preservation.

Disease Spread Over Whole Body
Face Was in Awful Condition
Itched So that Baby Could Not
Sleep Doctors and Home Rem
edies Failed Mother in Despair.
CURED IN THREE WEEKS
BY CUTICURA REMEDIES
"1 take great pleasure In dropping
you a line to tell you what a Godsend
dies were for my
baby. He was
that terrible tor
ture, eczema. It
was all over his
body in patches,
but the worst was
on his face and
head. His face
was awfully bad;
the eczema ex
tended up to the
lower eyelids and I was just about sick
for fear it would get into his eyes before
I got it stopped. He cried and scratched
all the time and could not sleep night
or day from scratching. I took him
to the best doctors, ana one of them
Bald that he would keep the disease till
he got all of his teeth; but if I had de
pended on the doctors, I guess my boy
would have been laid at rest by this
time. My friends told me to try many
kinds of remedies, and I pestered the
child to death with all . the different
things, but could see no improvement.
Finally I got discouraged, and was just
about to give up all nope of his ever
getting cured, when I read about the
wonderful Cutlcura Remedies, which
came just in time to save my baby
from tne terrible torture. I used Cutl
cura Soap and Cuticura Ointment, and
gave him Cuticura Resolvent, and I
saw an Improvement in three days,
and in three weeks his skin was as
clear as it eould be. , That was six or
(even months ago, and I have not
seen any return of the disease since. I
should nave written long ago, but I
waited to see if it would return. I shall
recommend the use of Cuticura from
one end of the world to the other. Mrs.
