LIFE OF JUDGE BEARS.
Born at Concord, N. C-. September
4. 1852, and educated at Philltpi
Bxeter Academy, Dartmouth College,
Harvard, and Boston University of
Married In 1ST6 at Bridgewater,
Miss., to Mlas Ellen P. Carver, who
Came to Oregon in 1879 and served
as president of the Portland Council
from 1882 to 1884.
Elected to the circuit bench in
1885, which position he filled to the
time of his death.
Had been president of Oregon Bar
Association, was active in work of
Prisoners' Aid Society, prominent in
Masonic circles, president of Ore
gon Humane Society, and professor
In Oregon Law School.
Judge Alfred F. Sears, Jr., of the
Etata Circuit Court, one of the fore
most Jurists of Oregon, died of apo
plexy at his residence, S90 East Madi-
"ejon street, shortly before 4 o'clock yes
terday morning;. Death was altogether
unexpected, for not the slightest warn
ing to members of the family foretold
the end. The funeral will be held
; Tuesday. ' '
Judge Sears was In his usual health
Saturday. He was about the city, and
to many of his friends and associates
teemed In the best of spirits. He re
tired about 10 o'clock Saturday night,
rather earlier than usual, and it was
not until Mrs. Sears stepped Into his
room at 4 o'clock to see If he was
sleeping well, that It was known he
had passed away.
Dr. A. J. Gieey was immediately
called, but the Judge was past all med
ical aid. He had ceased breathing when
found by Mrs. Sears, and the opinion
of the physician is that he had died but
a short time before. No sound was
heard from his room, and this leads
to the belief that the 'end was peace
ful and painless.
Retired Early Saturday.
Of late Judge Sea re had been trou
bled with Insomnia, and it had been his
wont to spend much of the night read
ing, which was his favorite pastime.
That he retired earlier than was his
custom is the only unusual circum
stance noticed by the family.
Saturday afternoon Judge Sears
called on Judge Gantenbein and spent
nearly two hours in his chambers. He
discussed affairs generally, and was
particularly anxious that the law de
partment of the State University, of
which Judge Gantenbein is dean, allow
him more lectures in the course in
equity. At his home he seemed all
right up to the hour of retiring.
News of Judge Sears' death spread
rapidly, and many expressions of regret
were heard on every side. During his
long career in Portland he had earned
high standing with the bench and bar
of the state. He was a scholarly man,
and his reading covered a wide range
of subjects. He was always prominent
In public affairs, and did not cease his
actlvjtles In matters of a non-political
nature after his election to the bench
11 years ago.
Active in Many Movements.
Aside from his judicial station. Judge
Sears was prominent In Masonic circles;
had been president of the Oregon State
Bar Association; was active in the work
of the Prisoners' Aid Society; was presi
dent of the Oregon Humane Society, and
professor of equity in the law department
of the University of Oregon.
Judge Alfred Francis Sears. Jr., was
born at Concord, North Carolina, Septem
ber 4. 1S52. His parents, Major Alfred F.
Sears, 'C. E., and Mrs. Augusta Bassett
Sears, are still living in this city. Fol
lowing his earlier education, he prepared
for college at Phillips Exeter Academy.
Leaving this institution in his freshman
year, he entered Dartmouth College,
where he received the degree of A. B. In
1S75. He attended Harvard for a year
and studied law at the Boston University
of Law, from which he graduated with
the' degree of LL. B. in 18T7. He con
tinued the study of his chosen profession
In the office of Hosea Kingman at
Bridgewater, Mass.. and was admitted to
the bar at Plymouth In 1878. He then
came to Oregon, arriving here in 1879, and
began the practice of law.
In his profession Judge Sears formed
several partnership associations. His first
connection was with George G. Gammons,
now the law partner of Dan J. Malarkey.
Later he was associated with Henry B.
McGinn and N. D. Simon. Just prior te
Jiis election to the Circuit bench tie was
a member of the firm of Paxton, Sears,
Beach & Simon.
Was President of Council.
Shortly after taking up his residence in
Oregon, Judge Sears became interested In
politics. He was elected to the Portland
Council and served as its president from
18S2 to 1884. In 1896 he was elected to the
Circuit bench for four years to fill an un
expired term. He was a candidate for re
election in 1900 and was nominated by
acclamation. At the expiration of this
term he went before the people at the
primaries a year ago last April, defeating
Robert G. Morrow for the Republican
party nomination and vOgelsby Young, the
Democratic candidate, at the general elec
tion in June. At the time of his death
Judge Sears presided in Department No. 2
of the Circuit Court.
Judge Sears' prominence as a jurist re
sulted in his being talked of as a candi
date for the Supreme bench of the state,
and it is regarded as not unlikely that he

SUCCESSOR TO BE APPOIXTED
Governor Will Fill Vacancy Caused
by Judge Sears' Death.
The death of Judge Sears creates a v.
cancy on the Circuit bench of this dis
trict, that will have to be filled by ap-
polntment by Governor Chamberlain. The
appointment will hold until the next gen
eral election In June, 1908, when a. succes
sor to fill the unexpired term will be
Governor Chamberlain will make no ap
pointment until after Judge Sears' fu
neral, and whom he will appoint Is as
yet not known. That he will select a
Democrat is regarded as highly probable.
Already there are candidates for the va
cant place and the campaign for the
honor will be warmly waged until the
Oregon Executive acts. It Is regarded
as certain that the appointment will be
made very soon. In view of the Tact that
court will convene after the Summer va
Among those whose names are being
mentioned as aspirants or possibilities
are : Oglesby Young, who ran against
Judge Sears on the Democratic ticket at
the last biennial state election; Richard
W. Montague, Councilman "W. T. Vaughn.
Judge Thomas O'Day, ' ex-Senator
Gearln, Mark O'Neil, Newton Mc
Coy and Thomas G. Greene, member
of Mayor Lane's Executive Board. Owing
to the shortness of the appointive term.
there are several Democratic lawyers
who would be disinclined to break-up-
their private practice and associations to
accept the place, unlejs they intended
to run for re-election. Without these,
however, there will be plenty of appli
cants for the Governor to select from.
WILL APPOINT A DEMOCRAT
Governor Believes Judges Xot Be AH
of One Political Party.
SALEM, Or.. Aug. 25. (Special.) The
successor of the late Circuit Judge Sears
will be a Democrat. This much Governor
Chamberlain freely announces in answer
to Inquiries, but further than that ie is
not prepared to give ! any information.
When seen tonight the Governor said
that he had given scarcely any thought
to the matter of appointing a successor
to Judge Sears, and unless something
should occur to make immediate action
necessary he will not make an aonolnt-
ment until after the funeral.
"I have always believed that where a
court Is composed of more than one Judge
all of the Judges should not be of the
same political party," said the Governor.
This was my position regarding' the Su
preme Court when I appointed Judge
Halley to succeed Judge Wolverton.
There are four circuit judges In Multno
mah County and all have been Republlc-
ns. I believe it is best that there
hould be a Democrat on the bench there
and I shall appoint one. I have received
no applications or recommendations con
cerning the Ailing of the vacancy."

ONE MAN LOSES HIS LIFE
Freight Train Runs Over Trackless
Gap Brakeman, Engineer and
Fireman Ail Have Narrow
Escape From Death.
HATTON, Wash., Aug. 25. (Special.)
Before a movlns wall of water .oven f.t
high, and varying in width from 25 to
ou ieeL, me roaaoea or tne Northern Pa
cific between Hatton and Connell crum
bled away yesterday afternoon in the
coulee so suddenly that a freight train
coming West ran over the trackless gap
unawares, and H. A. Piegner, riding on
top of the cars, lost his life.
The track is destroyed in spots for a
distance of several miles. Freight and
passenger trains are stalled on either side
of the washouts, and the Northern Pa
cific main right of way may be useless
for this section until Tuesday. The
water swept down upon Connell and
caused some property damage there,
moving structures 50 feet from their
foundations and scattering debris for
miles. So far as known, no lives were
lost at Connell. although there doubtless
were some narrow escapes.
Second Cloudburst Follows.
The havoc was intensified by another
cloudburst following the first, although
the greatest quantity of water was car
ried by the first deluge. At 2:30 o'clock
In the afternoon the first cloudburst dis
charged its rivers of water about, a mile
and a half south of Hatton.' So resist
less was the s-reat welcrhf nf vnta. an
BO swiftly did It fun that noiearth-mada
ngnt or way could hold, and the roadbed
literally melted away. The water then
was four feet deep In the coulee.
It was Just after the havoc had been
wrought that a freight train that pulled
out of Mesa at 2:10 o'clock and had gone
about a mile was overtaken by the flood.
Engine 1637 was ditched, dropping more
than 20 feet, but the tender remained in
such a position that the. cars following
pressed upon the obstruction and nine
were telescoped. On the third car back
of the tender sat Piegner, who had been
warned not to get aboard tne train, as
it was not due to stop at Hatton. His
car was loaded with ties and timbers, and
the man was tossed to the ground in an
almost lnextricabie mass of heavy wood.
One leg was torn off and the other leg
broken and mangled in Buch a manner
that the bone protruded.
Brakeman's Narrow Escape.
The head brakeman. who was. near
Piegner, was hurled for a distance of 50
feet, his body clearing the coulee and
a barb wire fence, and alighting In a
grain field. He escaped, as If by a
miracle, with hardly a scratch. When

engine struck the ground the cab broke
loose, the engineer got clear and landed
on his feet.
The fireman meanwhile had gone out
by the gangway and landed on his hands
and knees, also unhurt. The fireman
was immediately sent back to flag an
other freight train coming behind. By
reversing his engine, the second train
was brought by the engineer to a stand

WASHINGTON, D. C, Aug. 25. (Spe

the President and leaders in Congress

has given his hearty approval to the

more at the next session of Congress

flclals that Congress should authorize an
Increase In the strength of the Army, not
so much by Increasing Its strength
numerically at this time, but by provld

plans for Increasing the artillery and
engineer corps by giving each regiment
three-inch guns and for other improve
ments to Increase the effectiveness of the
Army, but at present it seems that all
these must be Indefinitely postponed. At
least nothing along this line will be
done at the next session of Congress.

pleasures to go with his stay In Seattle.
He has announced a perfect willingness to
attend a round of entertainments and

he comes on September 8. . But the See-
retary has warned everybody not to
broach politics. Theoretically his big
speech in the Grand Opera House is to
be as Innocent as though he were lead
ing a Sunday school class. And his
receptions at the Rainier Club, Univer
sity Club, Athletic Club, and with the

There are now more than 600 members

General Allen Urges Strengthening
of This Division of Army. .
WASHINGTON. Aug. 25. Brigadier-
General James Allen, Chief Signal Officer
of the Army, in his annual report, urges
a considerable strengthening of the arm
of the service in his charge. He says it
Is believed that by the development of
the power of accurate control upon the
field of battle through perfect lines of In
formation it would be possible for the
commander who first utilizes it to the
limit for tactical purposes to gain as de
cisive victories in the future as any that
have ever been gained in the past. Gen
eral Allen points with regret to his inade
quate forces, saying that there Is a short
age both In officers and men throughout
the service, and submits a scheme for a
general Increase In the corps so as to
have laOO privates and a proportional
number of officers secured in part by de
tail from the line.
