Campaign on Foot to Give
State's Municipalities
More Power.
Purpose of Home Rule Association
Inspiring, Xow Having Member
ship of Over 40,000 Amend
ment Is Under Way.
Corporations may bo formd under gen
eral laws, but shall not be created by the
Legislative Aassembly by special laws. The
Legislative Assembly shall not enact, amend
or repeal any charter or act of incorpora
tion for any municipality, city or town. The
legal voters of every city and town are
hereby granted power to enact and amend
their municipal charter, subject to the con
stitution and criminal laws of the State of
Oregon, and the exclusive power to license,
regulate, control, or to suppress or prohibit,
the sale of Intoxicating liquors therein is
vented in such municipality; but such mu
nicipality shall within its limits be subject
to the provisions of the local option liquor
law of the State of Oregon.
- The foregoing is the amendment to the
state constitution proposed by the Great
er Oregon Home Rule Association, which
filed Its petition containing 14,322 named
of representative business men of Oregon
with the Secretary of State last Friday.
Although the law requires only 8000 sig
natures, the association, in its state
wide campaign, procured almost double
the necessary number In eight days.
The association, officered by leading
business men who have the business in
terests of the state at heart, were ma
terially assisted by the hotel men, who
first suggested the formation of a pro
gressive organization to foster the growth
of industry and commerce in Oregon. The
purpose of the association was so inspiring
and laudable that the membership Is now
more than 40,000, and the movement for a
greater Oregon Is not yet a month old.
The business interests of the state have
been so responsive to the suggestions
embodied in the by-laws and constitiution
of the association, that It has already
eclipsed the expectation of its most en
thusiastic promoters. The business men,
who agreed to sacrifice a portion of their
valuable time to become officers and
launch the movement, tind themselves so
deluged with routine matters and detail
Incident to the ponderous growth of the
organization, which is still in its nucleus,
that it is necessary to appoint a manager
to assume those duties in order to take
care of their own personal affairs.
The vim and energy injected into the
movement from its inception charact
erized the speed with which the petition
was circulated and filed, giving the
amendment 15th place on the ballot. As
there are so many initiative petitions
now In circulation the Greater Oregon
Home Rule Association believes that it
has accomplished a political advantage
In getting its petition .close to the top
of the long list of amendments to be
voted on, which insures a large vote for
the measure.
"There should be no misunderstanding
about the purpose of the Greater Ore
gon Home Rule Association," said M. C.
Dickinson, president of the Oregon Hotel
Keepers' Association, and one of the
originators .of the movement.
"The Greater Oregon Home Rule As
sociation is not a liquor dealers' organiza
tion. On the' contrary, it will fight
abuse of licensed liquor traffic the same
as it Is fighting state-wide prohibition.
It stands for temperance, not intemper
ance. The men at the head of the as
sociation and its most ardent members
certainly are not men who would tolerate
intemperance. The i association stands
for all that is good for Oregon, every
thing that means a greater Oregon.
"It so happens that this fight against
state-wide prohibition is its lirst in be
half of the business Interests dT the
state. The association rec Denized the
state-wide prohibition movement as inimi
cal to the best interests of the state, and
has started out to prevent a threatened
disaster. It will take similar action
against any other measure that would be
detrimental to Oregon, and will boost for
all that is good.
"The proposed amendment Is very clear.
It simply means that municipalities shall
have the right to license, control, regu
late and proiiibit the sale of liquor within
their boundaries."

High-Grade Quartz.
NATIONAL Nev.. June 12. (Special.)
Two robbers held up three miners In
the stope above tunnel No. 3, of the
property of the National Mining Com
pany, of Nevada, locally known as
"The Mint." on account of Its great
wealth, about 11 o'clock last night,
and carried oft one sack of high-grade
gold ore weighing 100 pounds and
valued at $3000.
Sheriff Lamb and number of
deputies hurried from Winnemucca to
day and are now Investigating the
robbery. This is considered one of
the most daring crimes committed In
the state In recent years.
At the time of the robbery, the night
shift, numbering about 75 men, was
busy at work, all the men within 3000
feet of tunnel No. 3. Under cover
of darkness the desperadoes succeeded
in getting past the various armed
guards and hid near the mouth of the
tunnel. Just at 11 o'clock a carman
rolled a car of ore from the tunnel.
He was promptly covered with guns
by the robbers. In accordance with
instructions, he led the way to stope
4, where the shift boss and another
miner were working. This necessi
tated climbing a small manway, 60
feet long.
One of the desperadoes stood guard
over the miners, while his partner de
scended the manway with the sack of
exceedingly rich ore, telling the miners
that any move on their part meant
death. The second man then descended
the manway and disappeared with his

and search of the mountains began.

HOOD RIVER, Or., June 12. (Special.)
A party of i-isitors at the Devil's Punch
Bowl, on the East F"ork of Hood River,
were horrified Saturday to see a man fall
from the cliff 60 feet above and plunge
into the icy pool. The victim of the ac

dent of the ve.lley, who, on coming to
the surface of the whirling water, by
heroic efforts managed to reach some
stones- above the falls, where he was res
cued by the spectators.
Blagg, who was almost insensible and
numbed by the Intensely cold water, was
quickly divested of his clothing and
wrapped in l horsa blanket. On recover

Matrimony by Clergyman With
Scruples Against Divorce He
Seeks Justice of Peace.
WASHINGTON, June 12. Brodie L.
Duke and Miss Wylanta Roschelle were
married Saturday at Camden, N. J.
Frustrated here yesterday in his at
tempt to take unto himself a fourth wife,
by unexpected and most unwelcome pub
licity and by the antipathy of a Presby
terian minister to the marriage of di
vorced persons, the tobacco magnate, of
Durham. N. C. and his protegee and
would-be bride vanished from this place
and were gone until late today, when they
returned to the local hotel where Mr.
Duke was staying before his disappear
ance, and the name of "Mrs. B. 1. Duke,
N'orth Carolina," was added to the reg
ister. "Just sey I'm married," said Mr. Duke
to the newspapermen who beset him
upon his arrival.
"Where, when, how?" wes asked.
"None of your business," retorted the
bridegroom, none too genially, and bolted
The statement that the pair were mar
ried, today at U A. M., "somewhere in'
Xew Jersey," is credited to William Has
kell, a friend of the tobacco man. This
was rendered more specific subsequently,
when a newspaperman Induced its cus
todian to show the wedding certificate,
which revealed Camden as the place
where the ceremony was performed.
Mr. Duke is 62 yeans old and his bride
28. Miss Roschelle is a daughter of a
Durham merchant and was a student at
a private school here conducted by Mrs.
Mary G. Hosier.
Mr. Duke arrived in the capital yester
day, but despite carefully laid plans, was
unable to have the nuptial knot tied here.
He made arrangements with Rev. Don
ald C. MacLeod, pastor of the First
Presbyterian Church, to perform the
ceremony. Everything went well until
Mr. MacLeod learned that the prospec
tive bridegroom hajj been married three
times and there had been two divorces.
There was the "rub," the minister re
fusing to perform the ceremony because
of the divorce record.
Mr. Duke's first marriage, yntracted
early in life, was a happy Aie. Two
daughters were born to him by that
marriage and they are now married and
have children. After the death of his
first, wife, a second marriage ended
in the divorce courts and his divorced
wife now lives in California.
His third wife was Alice Webb, from
whom he also secured a divorce. A
sensational feature of his union with
Miss Webb was Duke's incarceration
In a private asylum on Long Island
as Insane, through the efforts of his
wife. His release was secured by rela
tives. The ceremony today was performed
at Camden by a Justice of the Peace,
H. F. Garrison, and the witnesses were
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Hill.
Alarm Given at Headquarters, but
Parade Squad Appears at Crisis
and Rowdies Flee.
A riot call was sounded at police
headquarters Immediately following
the parade Saturday night.
Patrolman Johnson placed John
Lundh. a painter, under arrest for cre
ating a disturbance at Fifth and Wash
ington streets. When hfe- undertook to
march his prisoner to headquarters, a
few blocks distant, a crowd of 600
hoodlums attempted to take Lundh
from the officer.
When the officer with his prisoner
had reached Third and Oak streets the
mob made a final effort to rescue the
painter. Just at this Juncture the
platoon of police which had partici
pated in the parade swung Into Oak
street from Fourth under command of
Sergeant Keller.
The hoodlums were observed in their
tactics and an order waa given to dis
perse them. In a moment the latter
were scurrying to shelter and safety,

Is said to have been sought by night
riders, was drowned while swimming
in Reelfoot Lake, near here, today.
Harris, with a party of friends, was

Relatives Employ Counsel to Save
"Bones" 'Wiley, but Detectives
Suspect He Is Impostor.
LOS ANGELES, June 12. (Special.)
Frank F. Pratt, a prominent lawyer,
formerly of Chicago, tonight appeared
at the Jail to consult with "Bones"
Wiley, the college mm and athlete,
who waa arrested last night while
trying to rob the Yankie residence on
Bonnie Brae street. Pratt said he had
been retained by telegraph and pre
sented the following telegram dated
Chicago as his credentials:
"Wiley family. New York, joins me
asking you to take care of R. M. Wiley.
Spare no expense. Am wiring draft.
(Signed) Wiley."
Mr. Pratt said he did not know who
had sent the telegram, but that the
draft had been wired and another ur
gent message had been received tell
ing him again to spare no expense.
Mr. Pratt saw the prisoner and after
wards refused to discuss the case be
yond to say that he hoped to clear
Wiley of the charge of burglary. Pratt
confirmed young Wiley's statement
that he had been engaged at one time
to a daughter of Judge Hanecy, of Chi
cago, but said that he did not know her
first name.
"Booze did it. This is the finish, I
These were the first words Wiley said
when asked why he .became a burglar.
"Booze drove me out of college and
the best .girl in the world jilted me
because of booze.
Wiley declared today that he had
embarked upon hla brief career of
burglary after a quarrel over finances
with the proprietress of a seaside hotel
at Venice, Cal. He became desperate,
he declared, and resolved that he must
have money, even though he had to
steal to get it
So many discrepancies have appeared
In the various statements made by Wiley
that the detectives are now in doubt as
to whether he is the former college ath
lete or an Impostor who may have a long
criminal record.
Few of the statements made by Wiley
thus far have been verified. He insists
that his name is "Wiley," while ac
qaintancc3 of the Rutherford, N. J., fam
ily to which he claims to belong say that
"Wyley" would be correct. His state
ment that he was too drunk to know
what he was doing when he entered the
Yankie home last night is disputed by
Mr. Yankie and the arresting officer, who
declare that the burglar was not under
the influence of liquor and plied his trade
Wiley's appearance would bear out his
claim that he was once an athlete of
note. He is extremely muscular, with
the clean-cut figure of a sprinter.
Mrs. Margaret Leavitt Smollen
Comes Home From Europe to Die.
Husband Corbett's Chauffeur.
NEW YORK, June 11. (Special.) Mrs.
Margaret Leavitt Smollen, daughter of
G. Howland Leavitt, the railroad man
and banker, and said to be worth
SI. 000,000 in her own right, died Fri
day night at Miss Perigo's private
hospital in this city. Last January
she was married in Jersey City to
Joseph -F. Smollen, Mr. Leavltt's
chauffeur, who was formerly employed
by James J. Corbett In the same capacity.
Her family was not aware of her mar
riage until some time afterwards. She
lived with her husband only three
When they separated, the husband
declared hs wife had been weaned
away from him. " They did not meet
again except for an appointment in a
lawyer's office. Mrs. Smollen asserted
her irrevocable intention to live alone.
She sailed early In May for Europe and
returned last Sunday. When she reached
New York she went to live at the Hotel
Lorraine. She was taken 111 Thursday
night, after a day spent in shopping, and
was taken to a private hospital.
Mr. and Mrs. Leavitt were notified that
Mrs. Smollen's illness was desperate and
they went to the hospital early Friday

in consultation, but neither he nor other
doctors could do anything to save the
young woman's life. The specific - cause
of death given to the Board of Health

Accused Lawmaker's Lawyer
Will Grill Witness.
Counsel for Lee O'Neill Browne In
Illinois Bribery Case Plan to
Combat Scandal With Scandal.
Case Will Open Monday.
CHICAGO.' June 12. (Special.) An in
timate inside Btory of the workings of
the various cliques that make up the
Legislature la to be drawn from Charles
A. White, the lawmaker, whose confes
sion brought about the present Senatorial
scandal when he submits to cross-exami
nation at the hands of Representative
Lee O'Neill Browne's lawyers. If ' the
plans of the accused legislator's at
torneys work out. White may be com
pelled to add details to his confession
that he never intended should see the
light of day.
New Details to Come Out.
After a conference in the - offices of
Attorney Charles A. Erbsteln in the First
National Bank building, which was not
concluded until sunrise today, Represen
tatlve Browne's counsel considered .them
selves ready to "tear that White to
pieces." The tearing process, however.
will be confined to personal matters in
which White is declared to have been
connected at the last session of the Leg
islature matters that he did not mention
In the first detailed confession of the
bribe offer he insists was made to him
and carried out by Representative
It was- learned during the day that
every detail of White's life as a labor
leader in East St. Louis and as a legisla
tor has been subjected to a searching
scrutlng during the past few weeks and
that his cress-examination will consume
considerably longer than the direct ex
amination during which he will repeat
nis cnarges against Browne.
Witnesses May Be Excluded.
The finishing touches were put on this
investigation by Attorney Patrick O'Don
nell who made a hurried trip to White's
old haunts in Southern Illinois, Friday,
returning today. Browne is basing his
hopes on the fact that his lawyers will
make a determined fight to exclude the
testimony of Representatives H. J. C.
Beckemeyer and Michael Link on the
ground that they did not witness the
financial transaction declared to have
taken place between Browne and White.
Should the testimony of these two men
be ruled out and White's story be dis
credited by bringing up other stories In
which he will be pictured in an un
favorable light. It Is hoped to leave his
charge of bribery without sufficient cor
roboratory evidence to make a case.
It was said that Attorney. William, S.
Forrest had changed his plans and would
not make an opening statement awaiting
the conclusion of the case of the prose
cution to make this address. Tn the
event that this plan is carried out White
will take the wltneas-stand before 12
o'clock Monday.

Decatur and his men boarded the

The Trlpolitan gunboats chased her,
and the shore batteries of 115 guns
opened fire, but the Americans got
clear away with but one man wounded.
The Philadelphia blew up. .
