    THE MORNIXO OKKtiCmiAl, THUKSDAT. JUNE 16. 1910.
GIRL IS VICTIM OF"
FIENDISH TORTURE
Oakland Maiden, Stolen From
Bed, Gagged and Her Limbs
Cut and . Burned.
CRIME'S MOTIVE UNKNOWN
Anaesthetic Keeps Mary Delgado
Unconscious Until Brother, in
Morning, Stumbles Oyer Her
Cody, Stiff From Cold.
OAKLAND, Cal.. June 15. Bound and
Fragged, and with her feet, arms and legs
turned and her body badly mutilated,
Mary relgdo, 17 years old, was found
half dead on the front porch of her home
in this city early today. Rendered un
conscious by the administration of some
powerful drug or anaesthetic, the victim
is unable to say how long she lay ex
posed to the night air.
"When picked up by her brother, Frank
XeIgado, who stumbled over the pros
trate body as he left the house to go to
work this morning, the girl was stiff
and blue with the cold, and splotches of
.blood from the wounds on herarms and
feet covered her nightgown and a sheet
'matched from her own -bed by the un
known assailants which was wound
round the lower part of the body.
Mystery Veils Assault.
' Deepest mystery veilw the assault and
tk reason for the outrage is assigned
ry either the girl or the members of
her distracted family. Nine-year-old May
Delgado, who was sleeping in the room
with her sister, was left undisturbed
while the older girl was securely bound
and gagged and dragged from the bed.
When discovered by her brother, Mary
Delgado was lying face down on the
small piazza which runs across the front
tf the -Campbell street house. Her hands
were securely tied behind her with one
of her own etockings. which were taken
from a chair beside the bed, while the
mate, tightly bound around her throat,
prevented her regaining consciousness.
Feet Burned With Acid.
The nature of the corrosive acid used
in burning the girl's feet, both of which
are literally cooked, is unknown. A hot
iron was apparently used on the soles
of the feet and holes have been bored
clear through the bone of each of the
toes, on both feet by a sharp instrument,
also used, it appears, in inflicting a deep
hole the size and shape of a silver dol
lar In the exact center of Miss Delgado's
left foot.
In addition to the other injuries in
flicted, the girl's front hair was sheared
and torn from her head.

GENSUS SCANDALBREWS
BOISE FIGURES PRINTED, BUT
"LEAK" IS DENIED.
If Announcement Is Correct, City
Has More Than Trebled Popu
lation In Ten Years.
BOISE, Idaho. June 15. (Special.)
Through the publication of an unoffi
cial estimate of the population of this
city as 20.250, together with 5000 In
habitants enumerated in the suburban
districts not included within the cor
porate limits, and with the assurance
that the fgures were absolutely correct,
although they had not been secured
through a "leak." In the local state cen
sus office, Boise. In all probability, will
develop a census scandal similar to that
of Salt Lake.
The confidence with which the local
newspaper heralded the figures as ac
curate has forced a demand that it be
ascertained where the "leak" took place.
After making- its announcement of the
figures, the newspaper declared that no
"leak" existed in the Idaho bureau,
but it had "authoritative Information"
to the effect the census it quoted was
corect.
Supervisor Joseph Perrault, Jr., who
had charge of the Idaho census, has
declared that he Is absolutely certain
no "leak" has occured and that there
are but two members of his force,
himself and Craig- Pettlngill, his as
sistant, who know the population of
Boise.
"My department is not allowed to di
vulge any information relative to the
census," said Supervisor Perrault. "Fig
ures reputed to cover the census of this
city never came from this office, nor
from the employes. I know that we
understand our duties too well to give
out information of thia character. We
have taken care that nothing- could be
given out from our department that
would in anyway disclose the real fig
ures." Boise's population in 1900 was only
6000.
"TWISTING" IS CONDEMNED
Insurance Commissioner Believes
Practice Is Violation of Law.
SALEM, Or., June 15. (Special.) In
an open letter to the life insurance
companies and their agents doing busi
ness in Oregon. Insurance Commis
sioner Kozer severely arraigns the
practice of inducing persons Insured
In one company to change their policies
to other companies.
This scheme of the agents is called
twisting. The letter says that "com
plaints have been received against
agents who Insist on attempting to
twist' the policies of other authorized
companies held by citizens of this state.
This practice is so reprehensible and
contemptible that no agent of character
and standing will resort to it." The
Commissioner also says that he believes
the practice is contrary to the law pro
hibiting discrimination and that the
Commissioner would be Justified in re
fusing to renew-the license of any com
pany permitting its agents to practice
these tactics. .
Commissioner Kozer says that there
have been other violations of the anti
discrimination law that have been re
ported to the district attorneys in the
localities In which the violations are re
ported to have occurred, and that all
future violations will be reported
promptly for the consideration of the
Prosecuting Attorneys and grand juries.

$30,000,000 for Irrigation. '
SUCCESS IN HOUSE LIKELY
Project Is Made Amendment to Con
servation Measure, and This Cir
cumstance Is Expected to
Help It in Lower Body.-
OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, June 15. Senator Borah, who has
done more than any one man in Con
gress to promote the t30,000,000 irrigation
bill, is- delighted that the bill, by a. vote
of 67 to 3, was today made an amendment
to the conservation bill. In that form
it goes to tne House for approval.
"My. opinion la that this action makes
reasonably certain the final adoption of
the $30,000,000 bill," said Senator Borah to
night. "Friends of the withdrawal bill
in the House are those who would na
turally oppose the $30,000,000 bill. and
friends of the $30,000,000 bill are those who
are naturally opposed to the withdrawal
bill.
"I feel very certain that both measures
will be adopted by the House, for in view
of the overwhelming vote of the Senate,
one proposition cannot be accepted with
out the other. Furthermore, President
Taft has the assurance of House leaders
that the $30,000,000 amendment will be ac
cepted by the Housa."

INSPECTION LAW NEEDED
STATE WOULD PRESERVE STAT
UTE OX GRAIN SALES.
Washington Supreme Court Asked to
Modify Decree That Opens Way
to Crookedness.
OLYMPIA, Wash., June 15. (Spe
cial.) State Inspection of grain and
hay has been practically wiped out by
recent decision of the State Supreme
Court, is the assertion in a brief filed
by the Attorney-General asking a re
hearing of the case-and a modification
of the original decree. In this brief
the Attorney-General reviews the his
tory of the grain business in Washing
ton, and the abuse's that grew up which
inspection ru designed to cure.
It points Out that for many years
most of the crop was sold for export,
and that the terms of purchase were
subject to terminal or coast weight
and grade. Disputes arose between
shipper and purchaser both as to quan
tity and grade of the grain sold, and in
1895 the Legislature passed an act pro
viding for state weighing and grading.
Later the business changed, as mills
were established throughout the state,
and the millers engaged in competition
with exporters in purchase of the grain,
so that. Instead of the grain being
shipped direct to the terminals, much
was purchased at interior warehouses.
But with this change another abuse
grew up. It was widely charged that
warehouse men gave preference to
wheat tbey had purchased over that
simply stored in their warehouses,
which resulted" in a law being passed
in 1909 giving the Railroad Commission
jurisdiction over . warehouse charges.
The same law gave the Commission
charge of grain inspection.
The state, in its brief, admits that
the court is correct in holding no in
spection fees should be charged for
grain or hay consigned by the owner
to' himself. But it does contend that
the history of the legislation bears out
the contention that there is good rea
son for other inspection to protect the
seller. Under the state's contention all
wheat or hay sold subject to weight
or grade, at a point where the seller Is
not personally present to check with
the purchaser, should be inspected.
The Supreme Court may act upon this
petition within a few days or it may
be left over for months.
