he was unable to bring his boat to the

between the three starters was an ex
hibition affair and was witnessed by an
enthusiastic crowd of launch owners and
followers of sport. 1
The start was made from the Morrison
street bridge at 2 o'clock and 51 minutes
later the Kittie finished. Tile Flirt and
the Vixen crossed the line within a min
ute in the order named. The Vixen was
the only scratch boat, the Flirt having
two minutes' and the Kittie three minutes

The race between the Van and the
Kittle was first scheduled for Sunday,
April 12, but a few minutes before the
start the Van broke a crank shaft. The
race was for JiOO a side. Van Datta was
given two weeks to get in shape for the
race. He was unable to do so and the
time was extended to 2 o'clock yesterday
afternoon, at whch time the money was
to be forfeit if the boat was not at the

PREDICT ; GREAT ' FUTURE
BUSINESS MEN SPEAK WELL OF
Portland Excursionists Say It Will
One Day Be Center of In
That Lewiston U 'destined to be the
commercial center 6f the Inland Empire
was the opinion expresse'd by several
members of the party of Portland busi
ness men who returned yesterday from
that city, where they participated In the
celebration of the opening of the Riparla
cut-off. To many of the visitors the en
terprise shown by the Idaho city Was a
revelation, and they were outspoken in
their praise of the Iewiston country and
their belief in its future.
It is said thit the location of Lewiston
points to that city as the distributing
center for the Inland Empire, and that
only the delay In the improvement of the
Snake and Columbia Rivers defers Its
commercial supremacy. The visit of the
Portland business men. It is believed, will
result in establishing closer relations be
tween the two cities with consequent ad
vantage to both.
J. N. Teal said yesterday In ' speaking
of the trip: "This excursion will have a
strong tendency to renew old ties that have
not been exactly severed, but anyway,
badly strained. This Is to be brought
about by the Improvement of transporta
tion facilities. Lewlston has suffered from
the lack of these. This new road is
bound to work a revolution.' The in
evitable result will be to bring Portland
and Lewlston into a closer relationship.
"I expect to see a large city at the
junction of the Snake and Clearwater
Rivers. The people of Lewlston show a
very progressive spirit. They are par
ticularly strong In their attitude toward
anything in the nature of public improve
ments. The business men appear to be
very much alive and there are evidences
of prosperity that one could not fall to
notice. The people have always worked
very closely with lis In river matters.
This visit Is merely the renewal of the
old ties that have always existed.''
"I certainly have a very clear idea of
what the future, has in store for Lewis
ton," said Isadore Dang! a member of
the excursion party.
"I thoroughly believe that Lewiston is
destined to be the greatest city of the
Inland Empire. When we have an open
river from Portland to Lewiston I think
it is going to mean the development of
the Idaho city, as the largest commercial
center in that section. It will give her an
advantage as a distributing center over
any other city in that part of the country.
Her development has been retarded
through lack of transportation facilities.
The completion of the Riparla cut-off into
Lewiston will be followed by the settle
ment of the lands in the vicinty. That
country is wonderfully productive one of
the most productive probably In the
President C. Frf Swigert, of the Cham
ber of Commerce, was much impressed
with the possibilities of the Idaho city.
He said it was apparent-that the people
of Lewlston were aware of the Impor
tance to them of the visit of Portland's
representative business men. ,
Dr. Henry Waldo Coe also commented
favorably on his observations while at
Lewiston. "Lewiston is booming," said
Dr. Coe. "It is going to give Spokane
quite a little race. It nas the appearance
of having a solid foundation and sterling
worth. The people are very progressive.
Our reception was most cordial. The cry
was; 'Deep waterways.' "

Heretofore It has been the custom of

VOICE FROM PRISON CELL
Ex-Surveyor-General Charges Erst
while Feiend With Maligning
Him Through Perjured Affi
davits Turns on the Light.
Henry Meldrum, " ex-Surveyor-General
of Oregon, has added an interesting
chapter to the history of the Oregon
land-fraud prosecutions, and more par
ticularly to the causes for the dismissal
KITTIE, WHICH WOX
V VAN, WHICH
of the Indictment against George C.
Brownell, ex-State Senator from Clacka
mas County. In a letter to his son, Don
E. Meldrum, at Oregon City, Meldrum
charges Brownell with having procured
false affidavits in support of his plea
for exoneration. The specific instances
cited are the sworn declarations of J.
VV. Draper and H. L. Patterson.
Several weeks ago Meldrum, who Is
now serving a sentence at McNeils
Island for complicity in alleged fraud in
making land surveys. Issued a statement
in which he admitted having signed
Brownell's name to various survey ap
plications and field notes. On April 1
and no particular significance is said to
attach to the date Brownell caused the
statement to be published. At the same
time he included affidavits by both
Draper and Patterson in corroboration
of Meldrum's so-called confession.
Draper made affidavit that he had desk
room In the law offices of Brownell In
1901 and 1902 and that Meldrum frequently
entered the office in the absence of
Brownell and used Brownell's seal, at
taching it at divers times to what
Draper believed to be field notes or ap
plications for Government surveys.
Draper further affirmed that at the time
he remonstrated with Meldrum, who re
plied "that it did not amount to any
thing, .that it would- do no one any
harm." This affidavit was made Feb
ruary 2. 1902.
The date of the Patterson affidavit is
October 10, 1907, and in it Patterson
swears that in June, 1904, Meldrum told
him that he (Meldrum) frequently had
gone into Brownell's office and signed

Brownell's name to field notes of Gov
ernment surveys and - applications for
surveys and attached Brownell's notarial
seal to them. - ,
In his. letter, which Is appended, Mel
drum reiterates that he does not consider
Brownell guilty of any crime in connec
tion with' the land frauds in this state,
and further says that his confession was
written for the purpose of supplying the
basis for a reasonable excuse on which
to ask for the dismissal' of the indictment
against Brownell. Meldrum denounces
as false the affidavits of both Draper
and Patterson and declares they are the
production of Brownell's political genius
and were designed, not for the purpose
of corroborating Meldrum's confession,
but to furnish Brownell a legitimate ex
cuse for not going to Washington as a
witness for the Government against
This was possible, writes Meldrum,
only when Brownell could convince W.
C. Bristol, then United States Attorney,
that he (Brownell) did not know any
thing about the forged survey applica
tions and field notes.
The falsity of the affidavits, asserts
Meldrum, . is further apparent from an
investigation of the records In the Surveyor-General's
office, which show that
the only field notes signed by Brownell
and filed between July 1, 1901, and April
14. 1903. the dates covered by the affida
vits, were those involving the contract
of. R. S. Moore, which was performed
faithfully and to the satisfaction of the
Text of the Letter.
Mr. Meldrum's letter vwas written April
20, and follows:
In regard to those affidavits of JT. W.
Draper and H. L. Patterson, which were
RIVER MOTOR BOATS
THREE-CORXERED SUNDAY RACE, AXD
published recently in connection with a
statement signed by myself and forwarded
to George C. Brownell, last November, will
say that the affidavits of both DTaper and
Patterson are unqualifiedly false and utterly
without foundation whatever so far as I
am concerned therein.
At the time my statement was written.
George C. Brownell was under indictment
in the Federal Court for subornation of per
jury, it having been alleged that lie had
suborned John Howland and Fred Sievers.
while they were witnesses before the Federal
grand Jury. Brownell h endeavored to
give the impression that he was indicted be
cause his name was signed to certain field
notes of survey, which was untrue.
My statement was written for the purpose
of furnishing- a base upon which to ask for
the dismissal of the indictment against him
and was substantially correct so far as I
was concerned. Brownell's understanding
with Heney. however, was that In consid
eration of the fact that Brownell was to
furnish for Lhe Government material evi
dence in the trial of John H. Hall in Jan
uary, also in other .cases, presumably my
own. subsequent to that time, the Indict
ment against htm was to be dismissed,
which was done.
When my statement was published, and
this was done at my own request, there ap
peared attached to the same, apparently as
corroborative evidence, the affidavits of
Draper and Patterson and therein appeared
the fine Italian hand of George C. Brownell,
as these affidavits were originated for a far
different purpose. It (will be noticed that
Draper's affidavit, sworn to before E. Jj.
Moulton. Brownell's stenographer, bears date
of February 2. 1907. and be it rem em be rd
that on that date subpenas had been Issued
commanding certain persons to appear as
witnesses at the trial of Binger Hermann, at
Washington, D. C. and among others was
one for George C: Brownell,
Knows BrowneU's Reasons.
For reasons best known to himself, but
which I could furnish if I so desired,
Brownell wished to avoid appearing as a
witness In the Hermann trial and was at his
wit's end for an excuse, short of sudden
death, which would be available with W. C.
Bristol, at that time District Attorney for
Oregon. It was then that that genius,
which has so many times In his political
battles, carried him safely out of what
seemed a hopeless fight, came to his aid and
the Draper affidavit was tne result. With
this In his possession he was able to con
vince Mr. Bristol that he "had no knowledge
whatever of his name having been signed
to certain applications of survey, field notes,
etc., and that he wouWnot te a competent
witness In the Hermann trial.
There was not a word of truth In the
Draper affidavit so far as I am concerned
as can be proved by the records of the Surveyor-General's
office in Portland, which
will show that between July 1, 1901, and
April 14, 1903, the dates covered by the
affidavit, the only papers signed "George C
Brownell' and placed on file were the field
notes of the single contract of R. S. Moore.
Speaking of the Moore contract it Is high
time that the veil of falsehood and mystery
that has been made to envelop this con
tract, by Special Agent Greene and others,
should be torn away and let the truth be
known, as it Is known to but few. In
newspaper Interviews, Agent Greene was
made to speak of the Moore field notes as
fraudulent field notes. Tnis was repeated
by him frequently although he knew it was
false. Mr. Heney has also more than once
spoken of this survey as a fraudulent sur
vey. Now, b the report of an examiner of
surveys sent by the Interior Department in
1003 to Inspect this work in the field, the
work was found to have been' In all respects,
faithfully and properly executed according
to law, and the monuments properly estab
lished. This report has been known to
Agent Greene and Mr. Heney since 1004,
also that the field notes of the Surveyor
General, were a faithful record of the work
as actually performed and nothing more and
it is fully time that , the public, or so much
of ft as care anything about the matter,
should know the truth.
To the affidavits o the chalnmen and
axmen, who performed the work, is at
tached the name of George C. -Brownell,

notary public, showing on their face that
the parties- named were sworn before him.
About one-half of these, were signed by
Brownell and one-half were not. I am re
sponsible for the portion not signed by
him. His name was not signed with any
purpose of defrauding any one nor could
any such result occur from his name having
been so signed.- What the Government on
one hand and the settlers or owners of land
on the other wanted to know, was whether
or not the survey actually and properly was
executed In the field, and the question of
who signed the affidavits of the assistants
after the work In the field was completed,
looks Important only when bound up in the
red tape of a department clerk, or a spe
cial agent like A. R. Greene.
But to come back to Brownell, who, with
his usual desire to leave no stone unturned,
also volunteered to Bristol the Informa
tion that H. I Patterson would be an Im
portant witness against Hermann. This was
no doubt as much a surprise to Patterson
as it was to Bristol, but It furnished a sub
stitute for Brownell, and Patterson went
to Washington while Brownell remained at
home. The statements made by Brownell
to Bristol at that time explain the blttei
personal animosity, exhibited by Bristol to
ward myself Just prior to my departure
for Washington about February 4 and for
which, at that time, I was unable to account.
Not knowing the man, I charged it up as
showing -what I then believed to be his
natural disposition. -
When Mr. Hermann was. cleared by the
jury in Washington, things looked all right
for a time and then a date was finally set
for the trial of th remaining land-fraud
cases in Oregon, firsr with a great blare of
trumpets by Mr. Heney. The date was
fixed for April 13, fl008 and then at some
time In May. but God only knows when they
will be tried, and they may keep even him.
Become Source of Trouble.
But when the dates for these trials were
settled the Draper affidavit, which appar
ently had served its purpose, became a
possible source of trouble for. when the
cases against xnynelf, two In number, ap
pear for trial this affidavit would appear
as evidence against me and again Brownell
was In a quandary. He finally concluded to
corroborate his first affidavit with another.
Patterson and myself In 1904 had taken
a trip together, looking over some timber
lands in the Slletz country. This was known
Now here were two men alone in the
mountains for days together, and three
years after. In October, 1907, Patterson
.makes an affidavit corroborating; Draper's
affidavit. There was not a word of .truth
In Patterson's affidavit, no such conversa
tion having occurred between us on the
Siletz or any other place. The affidavit,
like the story Itself, was originated by
Brownell in 1907 and for a double purpose;
the first being as given above, to corrobor
ate Draper's affidavit and the second be
ing that in the Fall of 1907. Brownell knew
that he must be a witness against John
H. Hall in January, the time having almost
arrived when he must deliver to Heney the
evidence he had so long promised.
In the Hall trial Brownell knew that he
would be confronted with his signature
upon certain affidavits and, while all prepar
ations had been made to deny all knowledge
of the same, still it would be necessary for
him to give an approximate date as to
when he first learned that the signatures
were not his own and also the name of an
Informant who furnished him with that in
formation. The actual truth would not do
for him at all. as it might at least show
him to be an accessory after the act so that
the Patterson affidavit solved the problem
by fixing the date as 1004 and Patterson
as the informant.
Carried Matter Too Far.
The actual facts In the case were that T,
myself, while Surveyor-General, had point
ed out to Brownell on the field notes them
selves just which he &ad signed and which
had been signed by some one else. The
publishing of my statement gave to
Brownell the opportunity to bring forth his
affidavits, apparently in corroboration of my
statement, evidently expecting that I would
remain silent about the matter and that
through them the public confidence, which
had been largely lost to him. would be re
stored, but he has carried the matter Just
a little to far to set well on. my nerves.
Brownell was not guilty of any land
frauds so far as attempting to secure either
for himself or for others any land what
ever, but he is guilty of all that I charge
him with and then some. And the very
worst of all. the men who have been lQ
dicted fot those frauds would compare
favorably with him In morals. He seems to
show no hesitation whatever, under the
guise of friendship. In committing that most

"Legend of 8leTy Hollow"
despicable act of kicking a man when he
la down. '
, Among critical persons this reckless jug
gling with false affidavits will be regarded
as most criminal. But among Brownell's
best friends, the more charitable view will
be taken that, owing to his enforced po
litical seclusion of the last two years, a vent
was necessary to ease his pent-up' forces and
that his Internal machinery was merely
working off an overcharge of his political
steam, which he was unable to work off In
the cause of reform.
This Is the explanation of these affidavits
which puzzled you and I trust you will make
the explanation as widely public as were
made the affidavits.
