SEEKS TO PROVE
ITS SURVEY PRIOR
Oregon Trunk's Contention Set
Forth by Argument in In
CAREY SPRINGS SURPRISE
Counsel for Hill Line Submits Affi
davits From Two Men Repudiat
ing Their Previous Affidavits
In Interest of Harrlman.
Included In the counter affidavits
tiled In the Federal Court yesterday by
counsel for the Oregon Trunk In tha
hearing In the Deschutes Injunction
suit, were two by Scott E- Gordon and
Georse Alexander. These young men
. also had subscribed to affidavits In the
! Interest of the Deschutes Railroad.
certifying that no part of the survey
! for the Oregon Trunk was made be
' tween February 24 and April 3, 1908.
These affidavits were read In court
Tuesday, but yesterday Judge Carey,
of counsel for the HU1 road, sprang
' something of a surprise when affl
davits from both of these men. exe
cuted subsequent to the date of their
first statements, were submitted. In
these, the young men, who were mem-
. bers of the original surveying crew,
which operated for the Oregon Trunk
in the Deschutes Canyon, declare
their positive knowledge that a 'great
deal of the surveying was performed
by the Oregon Trunk officials during
the months of February and March.
1906. This constituted a complete re
pudiation of the essential fact to
which they swore In their first affi
davits. Judge Carey spoke for over three
hours yesterday and presented the con
tentions of the Oregon. Trunk people,
who assert a priority of right for
their survey In the southerly 60 miles
of the Deschutes Canyon. He charged
that the Deschutes Railroad Com
pany, the Harrlman road, was not
organized until February, 190.6. or
after W. F. Nelson. one of the
Incorporators of the Oregon Trunk,
had completed his surveys up
the Deschutes River. The southerly
60 miles. , explained Judge Carey,
were surveyed first, the work being
done between October, 1905. and Jan
uary. 1906. while the survey for the
first 40-mile section was made early
in 1906. Later this survey was checked
over, between February H and April
Oregon Trunk Surveys Appropriated
In support of his application for a per
manent injunction against the Harrlman
road. Judge Carey pointed out that the
maps of survey of the Oregon Trunk for
the 60 miles Involved In the suit had re
ceived the approval of the Secretary of
the Interior, while tTie maps of the Har
rlman people for the same distance have
not been acted upon. For this reason he
charged that the Harrlman operatives
were only trespassers and properly should
be enjoined from interfering further with
the survey of the Oregon Trunk. In view
of the fact that if had received the ap
proval of the Interior Department.
Judge Carey insisted the approval by
the Secretary of the Interior of the maps
of survey for the Deschutes Railroad was
essential before that road could have any
standing In the Federal Court. Counsel
took the position that the findings of the
; Secretary of the Interior are final and
' conclusive and not subject to modlfica
f tion. The position of the Harrlman peo
! pie was declared inconsistent, for the rea
son that1 H had no right to appear in a
court of equity when the Issue Involved
in the hearing was pending before the
General Land Office. Replying to the
: charge that the survey of the Oregon
Trunk Is Irregular. Judge Carey said that
mistakes in a survey are not regarded
' vital when a bona fi1e Intention U shown
by the company to build a line of rail
road. This evidence of good faith, al
leged counsel, alwayR had been manifest
ed by the Oregon Trunk from the time,
of its incorporation.
Legality of Corporation Discussed.
Judge Carey argued at considerable
! length to show that the Oregon Trunk
i was properly incorporated and entitled to
! transact business in this state. He said
.' the company was formed under the gen
; eral Incorporation laws of the Slate of
j Nevada, and that the articles of lncor
1 poration were wide as to the scope of
' business activities authorized. Answer-
ing the charge of the opposition that the
Oregon Trunk was not entitled to do busi-
ness in this state at the time It made its
j survey, nof having filed Its articles of
i incorporation with the Secretary of State.
Judge Carey said there was nothing to
: prevent a railroad company from acqulr
i Ing a survey that had been made prior to
: Its organization so long aa the actual
' time indicated for making the survey,
when suhmltfed to the Interior Denart
' ment, did not conflict with Intervening
Defending the regularity of the Oregon
Trunk survey, Judge Carey said that the
grant to public land does not attach to
a railroad until ltf map of survey haa
been approved by the Interior Depart
ment In the case of the Oregon Trunk,
he pointed out that Its maps covering the
SO-mile section were approved by the
Secretary of the Interior in the Summer
of YjOS. over two years after the company
had filed Its articles of incorporation
with the Secretary of State and was
qualified to do , business in this state.
Counsel Insisted that the Deschutes Rail
road was without any rights In the court.
The question of the legality of the In
corporation of the Oregon Trunk and the
regularity of the proceedings by which It
acquired the grant of Its survey, he said,
should bo raised by either the United
States or the State of Oregon and not by j
the defendant Harrlman road.
Cotton Concludes Argument.
W. TV. Cotton concluded his opening
argument shortly before noon yesterday.
He alleged that the Harrlman interests
were the only people who seriously con
templated building a road into Central
Oregon. He charged that the survey for
the Oregon Trunk was so irregular that
If adopted as final. It would be impos
sible for any other company to construct
a railroad up the Deschutes River. He
questioned the legality of the Oregon Trunk
Incorporation and its authority to operate
lnthis state, declared that the survey for
the 60 miles which r.ad been approved by
the Interior Department was not made
during the time represented In the af
fidavits of the officials of the company
and charged that fraud was practiced by
"the Oregon trunk in securing the ap
proval of Its maps by the Secretary of
Judge Carey expects to conclude hla
argument before the noon ' adjournment
today. He will be followed by his asso-
') elate, J. B. Kerr, and 2tr. Cotton will
conclude for the Harrlman road. It la
not likely that the argumenta will be
concluded until late tomorrow.

Court Takes Charge of lilt-'

The mysterious disappearance of Harry
E. Hallock. formerly of Astoria, with
Mildred Waldorf, the 6-year-old daughter
of Mrs. Bessie Brown, of Astoria, who,
with the child left that place four weeks
ago en route to Boise, Idaho, where the
little girl was to be delivered to her
grandmother, was cleared up yesterday
morning. ' Hallock appeared at police
headquarters and gave an explanation,
which exonerated him of any wrong.
According to Hallock's story he la well
acquainted with Mrs. Brown and agreed
to come to Portland with the child and
work until either he or Mrs. Brown ac
quired sufficient money to defray the
child's expenses to the Idaho city. Since
that time, he said, he has been employed
as night cook at the Hotel Portland and
the little girl has been under the care
of Mrs. J. Oliver, of 690 Fourth street.
Two Japanese, L Kinona and F. K.
Nobuye. who were commissioned by Mrs.
Brown to get the child from Hallock,
will return to Astoria without her as a
result of Hallock's refusal to turn her
over to them. Acting Chief of Police
Moore ordered the girl sent to the Juve
nlle Court after Hallock's statement that
her mother Is not a proper custodian.
Patrolman Barze, who was detailed by
Acting Chief Moore to Investigate Hal
lock's care of the child, reported that
from what he could learn the little girl
had been treated In the most considerate
manner, being dressed well and pro

Something more than an ordinary tonic Is required to restore health to
a weakened, run-down system; the medicine must possess blood-purifying
properties as well, because the weakness and Impurity of the circulation is
responsible for the poor physical condition. The blood does not oontain
the necessary quantity of rioh, red corpuscles, and is therefore a weak,
watery stream which cannot aSord sufficient nourishment to sustain the
system in ordinary health. A poorly nourished -body cannot resist disease,
and this explains why so many persons are attacked by a spell or
sickness when the use of a good tonio would hare prevented the trouble.
In S. S. S. will be found both blood-cleansing and tonio qualities combined.

fore Impossible for any Individual to master
the treatment of all human ills. The man
who attempts to do so Is able to cure only
the most simple ailments. The ordinary
physician Is like the man who attempts to
master every branch of mechanics, from
watchmaking to shipbuilding. Such a man
becomes neither a pood watchmaker nor a
successful shipbuilder. The general medi
cal practitioner knows aa much about one
disease as he does about another and he
has no Intimate knowledge of any. The cures

I AM A SPECIALIST I7f MEJT'S AILMEXTS.
My practice Is confined wholly to the ailments of men. and the fact
that 1 invariably cure every case that I accept for treatment PROVES
that my methods are correct. Indeed. 1 have for twenty-five years
made a specialty of men's ailments and have so closely studied them
that I am able to meet-every phase and condition of each individual
case, and to effect a permanent cure in a very short time. I am never .
for a moment In doubt as to my course. I know just WHAT to do and
WOW to do It, to obtain satisfactory RESULTS. This explains why
my practice has grown to be by far the largest In the western part of

Binding GUARANTEE TO CURE VOL', AND YOU NEED NOT PAY ME
A DOLLAR UNTIL YOU ARE WELL.
Bear In mind that I could not afford to do this If I did not KNOW
that my treatment would not fall. I am the only doctor who dares to
make such a proposition. Under no circumstances do I ever take cases
for treatment that are doubtful. Hence, if I accept your case for treat
ment you may absolutely rely upon it that I will cure you.
MY METHODS ARE ORIGINAL.
My methods are entirely original with me, and are the result of
many years of special study and experience. Instead of filling my pa
tients up with powerful drugs and stimulants, as do other specialists, I
apply snothinp, healing and absorbent medicines DIRECTLY to the
DISEASED REGION, and thus aid Nature in overcoming the trouble. The
best that human skill can do is to ASSIST NATURE. It is Nature that
performs the cures. Powerful drugs taken through the stomach do not
cure. They merely set up a new disturbance in the system, which, for a
time, diverts the energies from the old disease to the new attack. This
process is invariably attended with a reaction, and in consequence leaves
the patient In a worse condition than before treatment. Another method
employed by another class of physicians Is to dose the sufferer with
tonics, which exhilarate the patient so that he actually believes himself
Improving under such treatment. But after a very short time these
stimulant medicines cease producing the desired effect, when the dis
ease gains a new and firmer grip upon the patient.
HOW I CURE.
My method of treatment overcomes Inflammation and congestion by
