The Frazer river men say that the
Puget Sound trapmen maintain that

Three Washed Asltore Kecently Are
Thought to Be From Czarina. .
GARDINER. Or.. Feb. 6. (Special.)
The driver of the stage between here
and Florence yesterday came upon the
dead body of a man on the beach about
a mile north of the mouth of the I'mp
trua River. The body was wholly naked,
except for a pair of shoes, and was so
beaten by the waves as to "be unrecog
nizable. This is the third body found north
of the I'mpqua River within a week.
AH are believed to be those of seamen
from the Czarina, which was wrecked
off Coos Bay on January 12.

men Gohl would have no dealings, as
lie was possessed of a mania for union
ism. The union sailors coming to Ab
erdeen from the coast ports had noth
ing to smuggle.
Aside from that there Is practically
no place to dispose of smuggled goods
here and no good way of shipping them
to other cities.
Oohl's accounts as agent of the Sail
ors' Union of the Pacini- have been re
viewed by officers of the local union
and found to be correct. Members of
the union declare- that their organiza
tion knew nothing of Gohl's private
life, and while they are loth to believe
him the arch-murderer he has been
painted, they say that If he is proved
guilty In a fair trial they will make no
effort to sav him from the gallows.
The apparent magnitude of Gohl's
operations is making the case difficult
for the local authorities to handle. At
first It was believed that Gohl had
not committed more than three mur
ders at the most, and the sensational
reports that were brought to the police
and county officers were discounted and
thought to be only phases of the popu
lar hysteria that followed Gohl's ar
: rest. Investigation of many of these
stories has led the authorities to change
their minds, and now they believe Gohl
has murdered many.
Boasts Hard to Prove.
It is to get first-hand evidence upon
this point that the two men supposed to
have been members of Gohl's gang of In
timates are being urgently sought.
With the air filled with conflicting
stories and reports, however, and with
most of these reports dated back two or
three years and being based entirely upon
things that Gohl boasted of. It Is difficult
for the officers to get tangible facts.
Chief Dean was closeted with a man yes
terday from half past 5 to half past 9 In
the- evening, endeavoring to gain some
positive Information about the reported
killing by Gohl of four men on a sandbar
In the bay.
In spite of the four hours the Chief de
voted to this inquiry, he cannot yet say
positively whether this occurred or not.
He is Inclined to believe the story, how
ever. Aside from information of value, every
body working on the case Is getting a
vast amount of information that is purely
fanciful. Reports that Mrs. Gohl is a
cousin of Jessie James, the bandit; that
men have been going about the water
front warning all sailors not to talk
about Gohl and many other wild rumors
have kept the police' and others on the
Jump, and made the real work more
Gohl's record has been traced back to
his native home In Germany. When
serving in the army there, he killed a
fellow-soldier and escaped punishment
only by flight to Australia. There he also
got into difficulty and left. He was
mixed in criminal troubles at a long
shoremen's strike at Eureka. Cal.. before
coming here. At this point he obtained

coming trial.
Gohl gives his age at 35. but the police
say he-4s more than 40. He married soon
after oomlng here. His wife is seeing
him daily and transacting business out

and cheering him. The night of his ar
rest he was left alone in a dark cell and
soon began crying out In despair, so that
the police expected a confession. After
a visit from his wife he "braced up," and
since has busied himself entirely with
plans for his fight for freedom.
Oregon Agricultural College to
Teach Industrial Pedagogy.
Corvallls. Feb. 6. (Special.) The new de
partment of Industrial pedagogy created
by the board of regents last Summer
will take up regular Instructional work
at the opening of the second semester.
Announcement has Just been made' of the

ular class instruction was not begun.

training being about equal. A number
of county high schools, among others
Crook and Klamath, will Introduce agri
culture next year. The city schools of
Medford and Pendleton have done so this
year, both employing graduates of the
Oregon Agricultural College.

be made for teachers next year, plans
are being formulated to conduct a Sum
mer school for teachers. The regular
members of the faculty will be assisted
by able instructors, to be secured from
the East and from amorfg the leading
schools of the state. A college circular
is in preparation to be issued about Feb
ruary 15.

Annexation to Multnomah Op
posed; Eastern Clackamas
Wanted as District.
Commercial Club Declares in Faror
of Change Oregon City In
convenient as County Seat.
Ma Meeting Planned.
The Ertaoula. Commercial Club
has ceclared Itself against annexa
tion of that district to Multnomah
' County and has launched, a move
ment to form a new county out of
the eastern portion of Clackamas
County; and has called & mass meet
ing to Initiate the movement.
The Club holds that annexation, to
Multnomah County would be Injuri
ous to the school and property inter
ests of that district and expresses
the opinion that Multnomah County
will 'not take upon Itself the burden'
of maintaining a big district of un
developed country.
It is declared by the club that
Eastern Clackama County has been
discriminated against, has not been
given representation and that West
ern Clackama has been unfair In the
distribution of taxes. It declares
that a county can be formed In
Eastern Clackamas that will have a
population of 6000 and property valu
ation of more than 16.000,000.
Kstacada and the surrounding- dis
trict have started a movement to form
a new county out of Eastern Clackamas
and make Kstacada the county seat.
This plan took definite form within the
past few days and is evidently expedited
by the steps1 taken "at Oak Grove to
annex the northern portion of Clack
amas to Multnomah County.
A week ago a committee of citizens
went to Oregon City to ascertain facts
and figures on which to base the move
ment and at a special meeting- of the
Estacada Commercial Club the investi
gators submitted their report. As a
result, annexation to Multnomah County
was voted unwise, and the club de
clared itself in favor of the formation
of a new county. The following re
port was adopted:
Portland, as a county seat, is more to
be desired than Oregon City, as it is more
convenient to get to and mall communica
tion Is much better, for it takes two days
to get mail to Oregon City with the ar
rangements in vogue. While this Is true,
we flrmly believe in a short time Portland,
and what are now its surroutiding suburbs,
will be Multnomah County, standing aloof
from a county district. It wo united with
them now the same exsense would soon be
incurred again In ret ran scribing records, etc.
Al&o to make Clackamas River the divid
ing line between Clackamas and Mult
nomah Counties is impracticable, working
a detriment to our school district and prop
erty interests by placing them in two dif
ferent counties, and for the further reason
that ths City of Portland, the large factor
in suet, division, does not want us. They
do want and should have adjacent and
suburban territory, but will fight shy of a
long stretch of mountains and unimproved
country districts.

is inconvenient to get to and has discrim
inated against the rural settlements, par
ticularly Eastern Clackamas, by not giving
us the property representation and by treat

Southern Pacific's 2 0-Mile Track to
Klamath to Cost Heavily.
MERRILL. Or.. Feb. 6. (Special.)
It is practically certain that the line
of the Southern Pacific from Merrill
will go to Klamath Falls as its junc
tion point with the main line north
Rlgrht-of-way Agent Worden said last
night the line will cost $500,000 to
build the 20 miles, as the grade will
have to be carried over the flume of
the Government irrigation ditch and a
bridge across Lost River.
The spur to Merrill will later become
a part ofthe transcontinental short cut
to the Northwest, so in the building of
the proposed 20 miles between here and
Klamath Falls the construction work
will be done with "roadbed and rails
