Both the Powells and the engineers

There is every indication that the Har

of attacking this end of the work and
with the idea of staying with it until
completed.

message to the Legislature today, which

Hay, besides advocating the passage of
a direct primary law to apply to the
filling of vacancies in Congress, touches
upon other matters of legislation.
The arrest of Ortis Hamilton, ex-
BY GEORGE PALMER PtTN'AM
MORO. Or.. Aug. 17. (Special.) The
announcement that Hill is the force
behind the Oregon Trunk activities has
created a feeling closely akin to ela
' tlon in the minds of the Central Ore
gonlans who for so Jong have been suf
fering from "railroadltls." All the
Deschutes country is echoing with '.'1
told you so," for It Is nothing short of
remarkable how r.nr.y of Its citizens
knew all about the "Wizard's" plan
now.
But whether It is Hill or the Porters,
or both, with whom the Harrlman
forces will contend from now on there
is every Indication that they mean to
bend every endeavor to the fight. In
ded, so evident is the substantiabillty
of their prepartions and work that two
roads Into Central Oregon now seem
almost a surety, Insofar as such uncer
tain fartors as railroads can ever be
reckoned with. But "Hide on your
railroads before you count them" has
become the official proverb throughout
the "railroad reserve."
In the lower stretches of the river,
where there are no conflicts of right
of way. is the chief Harrlman activity.
l"p to the present it can be said that
the Porters have for the most part con
fined their work to disputed points,
there attempting to make the greatest
possible showing, with the evident in
tention of securing strong rights to the
disputed grounds.
Twohy Crews Are Busy.
The lowest point on the river at
which the rights of way conflict is
immediately below Horseshoe Bend
tunnel, some 31 miles from the mouth
of the Deschutes. Here, and for seven
miles above, the Porters are restrained
from work by an Injunction granted on
the grounds that their men were un
warrantedly Interfering with their
rivals' work. About 175 Harrlman men
are at work on this piece, grading and
preparing for the tunnel. But the
four construction camps are practically
cut off from enlargement, for the
present, owing to the fact that the only
road of access, passing through the
Gurtz ranch, is in the hands of the
Porters. Indeed, all camp supplies
have to be brought in by circuitous
routes on pack trains. But, thanks to
the restraining order granted by Judge
Hendricks, of Moro, opening the Gurts
road, suffficlent supplies were crowded
in during the few days It held good
to keep the camps stocked for some
weeks to come.
Incidentally, perhaps, as a return to
the Porter lead in shutting off the
Gurtz road and taking their hard
made grade from them, the Twohys
have fenced In a half mile of their
right of way Just above the tunnel. In
view of this, it seems probable that
If the withdrawal of the injunction al
lows the Porters again to take up
work, there will be even greater com
plications in the fought-for territory.
At all events, immediate operations
at this point and at several others un
der dispute must depend entirely upon
the action of the courts. Certainly it
will be Impossible for either of the
two lines to accomplish much at con
flicting points until all the rights have
been positively determined.
Human Pack Trains Carry "Grub."
At the foot of the grade leading
down from the Gurtz ranch is a Porter
camp containing about 30 men, and
further up river, beyond the limits, of
the injunction, two t more engaged in
grade-building. These latter are for
the most part kept In provisions by a
"human pack train" whose Italian
members take small consignments of
"grub" along the steep trails, pending
the arrival of pack horses. An In
stance, this, of the enterprise which
characterizes the first camp-locating
of both sides.
"You bet." said Tony Scarpelll. who
has charge of these camps. "We're
building straight through to Califor
nia. It's not timber, but those green
figs that we want."
This certainty of building is as pro
nounced in the Twohy camps, and on
both sides the prevailing sentiment
among the rank and file is one of con
' fldence. not only in the success of
"their side," which may be put down
as unavoidable optimism, but in the
certain continuance of their work.
Camps Placed on SidehiH.
Testerday Porter officials announced
the Immediate location of eight new
camps between Tree Bridge and Hills,
on the west side of the river. Peter
Fleck, who has charge of camp-locating,
was out looking over the ground,
and as far as - could be ascertained,
made no definite choice of sites.
From a point about three miles be
low Hills, already reached by the Por
ter wagon road to one several miles
above the bridge, the river is hemmed
in by mountain-like hills, rising 2000
feet and more at angles impossible
often even for pack trains. Also, in
many places, the loose rock formation
adds difficulty to the already arduous
going, and the few available canyons
offer small promise.
Altogether, taking Into consideration
the topography and the determination
to locate these camps. It seems more
than probable that hillside sliding tac
tics will again be resorted to. Cer
tainly now that the rival forces are
fairly under way and sailing: under

Adjutant General of the National Guard,

In his recommendation of an appropria
tion of $36,6SO for the miltary forces of
the state.
In addition to asking for one new Su
perior Judge and greater leeway for the
State Highways Board in acquiring rock
quarries, the Governor recommends that
$16,000 be appropriated to continue the
survey of the State Capitol granted
lands, that are to be sold, and from
the proceeds of which a new capitol to
cost between $1,000,000 and $2,000,000 is to
be built in Olympia.
Income Tax Is Favored.
The Governor also recommends the rat
ification of the proposed Income tax
amendment to the Constitution of the
United States. Speaking of lobbyistu,
Governor Hay writes:
"During practically every session of
the Legislature since Washington was
admitted to the Union, special agents of
one kind or another have had paid lobby
ists at the State Capital for the pur
pose of defeating or rendering impotent
legislation distasteful to their employ
ers. The presence of these paid agents,
sent for the purpose of corruptto.i, has
been an insult to the Legislature and a
discredit to the State.
"They seek to, and frequently have suc
ceeded in preventing a free expression cf
the popular will. and. boldoiied by their
success, they not only direct their forces
to defeating good and wholesome laws,
but have brazenly loaned their support
to vicious legislation.
Would Have Lobbyists Register.
"Obnoxious Influence such as this
should no longer be tolerated, and I
especially recommend that you enact a
law placing a check upon these people,
providing that when a paid lobbyist shall
come to the capitol he shall first be
compelled to register with the Secre
tary of State and shall file a statement
with him showing by whom he is em
ployed, with a brief description of the
legislation in which he is Interested: that
within 30 days after the Legislature ad
journs he shall file a sworn statement
with the Secretary of State, showing in
detail all expenses paid or incurred,
promised directly or indirectly in cjn
nectlon with the legislation pending nt
the late session."

PROBE TO BE MADE SECRETLY
Hearings on Supreme Court to Be
Behind Closed Doors.
OLYMPIA, Wash.. Aug. 17. (Special.)
The bill restoring the nomination of Su
preme Court Judges to the primary sys
tem was a feature in the legislative
proceedings of both houses today, the
Senate, by a vote of 22 to 18. refusing
to reconsider the vote by which the bill
failed In July, and the House enemies
successfully securing further delay by
filibustering tactics. In the House,
where the committee again reported fa
vorably on the bill, Palmer of King
raised the objection that the draft of
the measure failed to observe the rules
requiring amendatory words to be under
scored. By a vote of 39 to 17 the bill was
sent to a special committee to report to
morrow. The House today decided to shut the
Supreme Court investigating committee
behind closed doors during its delibera
tions. It refused to adopt a resolution
offered by Representative French, dis
solving the committee on the ground that
the publicity given the proceedings was
an Injury to the good name of the State
and the court.
Chairman Halsey, of the committee,
asked that the House give the commit
tee authority to proceed with Its work,
but the question was deferred until a
later time.
The prospect for the summoning of an
other extra session of the Legislature at
the close of the present one faded away
when the Attorney General furnished the
Governor with a positive opinion that
the Senate had the right to continue sit
ting as a court of impeachment after
legislative adjournment. Both houses,
however, to preserve the status of the
House board of managers adopted a
concurrent resolution continuing the
board in existence during the progress
of the trial.
The Income tax was before the Senate
this afternoon under a committee report
recommending the adoption of the reso
lution ratifying the amendment. Some
of the more enthusiastic friends of the
measure attempted to get the resolution

Retired Capitalist Found Terribly
Beaten in Los Angeles.
LOS ANGELES,. Aug. 17. Detectives
of the city are investigating the death
of W;illam Saulters, a capitalist, 74 years
of age, who was found dead in an alley
here last Sunday night. It was at first
believed heart disease causesd his death.
An autopsy held Monday showed that the
aged man had sustained an injury which
caused 14 of his ribs to be torn away
from his breast bone, and that one of
the. ribs had punctured his liver.
It is now the belief of the authorities
that Saulters was murdered by some per
son who knew of his habit of carrying
a considerable amount of money on his
person. He came here from Tacom.i
some years ago, after converting prop
erty he owned fhere into cash and se
curities. When the body was found there
was but a small sum of money on It.

"I have been a coffee drinker, more

a few months ago I became more and

I could not sleep at night for I was
horribly disturbed by dreams of all
sorts and a species of distressing night
mare. ". inally, after hearing the experience
of numbers of friends who had quit
coffee and were drinking Postum, and
learning of the great benefits they had
derived. I concluded coffee must be the
cause of my trouble, so I got some
Postum and had It made strictly ac
cording to directions.
"I was astonished at the flavor and
taste. It entirely took the place of cof
fee, and to my very great satisfaction,
I began to sleep peacefully and sweetly.
My nerves improved, and I wish I could
wean every man. woman and child from
the unwholesome drug ordinary coffee.
"People really do not appreciate or
realize what a powerful drug it is and
what terrible effect it has on the human
system. If they did, hardly a pound of
it would bo sold. I would never thiiik
of going back to coffee again. I would
