In 1890 and 1891. Buch was a special

in Portland, now the Orpheum. His duty
was to keep the gallery gods quiet. It

and lost his l-cg.

himself. The bullet passed above the
heart and he lived. He was a hard
drinker and when in liquor many thought
he was insane. It is said he attempted
to kill his whole family several years
ago. He was a bartender here for years,
and established the Banquet saloon. A

WASHINGTON, June 23. No sooner
had the Senate disposed of the postal
savings bank bill than there ensued a
spirited contest among Senators for,
precedence in the Interest of other
Among the Important bills before the
Benate there were three candidates for
first place on the calendar. These were
the Appalachian forest reserve bill, the
Irrigation and reclamation bill and the
campaign publicity bill.
Senator Brandagee, in charge ofthe
Appalachian bill, was the first to cfo
tain recognition, and on a rollcall his
bill was made the unfinished business.
Satisfied with the attainment of this
advantageous position, he graciously
gave way for the presentation off the
other two measures, and both of CTiem
were passed within 30 minutes.
Committee to Adjust Conferences.
The reclamation bill, authorizing the
issuance of $20,000,000 In certificates of
Indebtedness to aid in the completion
of Government irrigation projects al
ready under way, was called up by Sen
ator Lodge of the committee on finance,
from which it was reported. Senators
Lodge. Smoot and Bailey were ap
pointed conferees on the bill to adjust
differences with the House.
The campaign publicity bill was pre
sented by. Senator Burrows, chairman
of the committee on -privileges and
elections. This bill requires the pub
lication, 30 days after election, of all
contributions made in National or Con
gressional committee In the election of
the members of the House of Repre
sentatives. As it passed the House, it required
publication of contributions before
elections. The measure met with great
favor in the Senate. Senators Bailey
and Beveridcre thought the measure
was not as inclusive as it should be
but they consented to accept the bill
as it stood rather than risk a fight,
which would mean delay and perhaps
Ante-Election Publication Hit.
Mr. Bailey's objection was to the
elimination of the House provision re
quiring the publication of. campaign
contributions in advance of elections,
while Mr. Beveridge thought state
committees, having to do with election
of members of the House and Senate,
should be required to publish contri
butions made through them. The only
rollcall was on the committee's amend
ment, striking out the ante-election
publication. This was granted on a
demand of Mr. . Bailey, but the com
mittee's action was sustained by a
vote of 37 to 30.
The negative vote was cast by Demo
crats and eight Republicans, the nega
tive Republican vote being cast by
"'Beveridge, Brown, Borah, Bristow,
Clapp, Cummins, Flint and LaFollette.
There was no rollcall on the bill as
a whole and it was passed unanimously.
The publicity and reclamation bills
are House measures and both will go to
conference before being finally acted
The Appalachian bill will receive first
attention from the Senate after the dis
posal of the routine business tomorrow.
Mother Wants Back Property She
Deeded to Her Son.
VANCOUVER, Wash., June 23. (Spe
cial.) After deeding her property to her
son, M. O. Brace, uporl his promise to
care for her the remainder of her life
and give her a Christian burial when she
died, Mrs. M. Brace, 87 years old, has
become dissatisfied with her bargain and
has brought suit to recover her property.
In the complaint Mrs. Brace says that
on April 8, 1908, she entered Into an
agreement with her son and deeded to
him lot 6, block 21, in Vancouver. For
the property he was to support her, buy
her clothes, giving her medical care, if
she needed any. He was to treat her
with kindness and consideration consis
tent with her advanced age of 85 years.
If these conditions were not fulfilled, it
is alleged, the deed to the lot was to
become null and void.
Besides alleging that her son has failed
to support her, Mrs. Brace alleges that
he has been unkind, cruel and abusive
and has heaped Indignities upon her to
such an extent that she was forced to
seek a home with friends. She asks in
the suit to have the home restored to her.
Davles Says Facts Alleged in Reso
lution Are False.
SPOKANE, Wash.; ' June 23. (Spe
cial.) Branding the Poindexter reso
lution in Congress for the investiga
tion of the Edward Rutledge Lumber
Company as a cheaply woven fabric of
falsehoods, concocted for political pur
poses, Frank J. Davles, manager of the
company today denies in toto the al
legations of fraud and facts set forth
in the resolution, and especially resents
the statement that he was one of the
, principals who hired assassins to mur
der Marble Creek settlers.
."If Congressman Poldexter had been
anxious to find out the real facts in
this matter he could have satisfied
himself after a half hour's examina
tion of the records at Washington that
a majority of his allegations were
falsehoods," stated Mr." Davles. "I do
not think that more than a half hour
of his time would have been required."
On the legal phase of the Marble
Creek controversy the settlers have
lost out at every turn, which Is a mat
ter of record.

At a meeting of the board of directors
of the Portland Automobile Club held
last night, it was decided to hold two
official club runs on July 4. One run

the other to Tillamook. Invitations were

wide, affording one of the finest straight

B. French, of the Astoria & Columbia
Railroad will put up a 100 cup as a
Some members of the club will ship
their cars to Astoria and drive from
there to Gearhart, while others are
planning to make the entire run from
Portland to the beach. Those who drive
from Portland plan to leave Portland on
the . morning of July 3, and will reach
Gearhart the same evening.
A big reoep'lon will be given those who
go to Tillamook, including a banquet and
a boat ride on the bay. Two days also
will be required to make this run.
The proposed boulevard from Medford
to Crater Lake, which is being promoted
by John M. Root, of the latter place, was

State Senator Stewart, of Kelso, Dis
cusses Political Situation Any
body's Fight Just Now.
State Senator F. L. 'Stewart, of
Kelso, Wash., was- at the Oregon Hotel
Wednesday night, on his way home from
a business trip to Eastern Oregon. Re
garding the Senatorial campaign,
around which political interest in
Washington now centers, he said:
"There are six candidates in the field,
but I have made no selection. Neither
would I try to pick the winner at this
time. .General James M. Ash ton, of
Tacoma, is now In the fight strong.
With four candidates from King Coun
ty and only one from Pierce, his
chances are bettered. Judge Thomas
Burke, I believe, is making the most
active campaign of any of them and
seems to be gaining strength. John L.
Wilson, of course, has his friends and
his enemies. Representative Poindex
ter is an insurgent and will likely get
a large voteffrom that element. The
regulars will not vote for Poindexter
and I doubt If he will get a heavy vote
from the East Side, because that part
of the state does not want to lose Sen-
ator Jones.
"Senators Jones- has made a good
record in Washington, stands high
among his colleagues, and Is recog
nized as a strong" man. To nominate
Poindexter would endanger the future
of Jones, because of the -common un
derstanding that the east side and the
west side of the state should each have
a Senator.
"Judge Humphries is becoming rath
er socialistic and is bidding for sup
port through appeals to prejudice. He
will get many votes in King County
from the element he represents, and
will also add to his- strength on the
east side by his methods.
"I believe our district wants to re
turn Representative McCredie to Con
gress, and it might be possible for
Ashton to strengthen himself by throw
ing Pierce County to McCredie in ex
change for support from Vancouver
and the southwest part of the state."

Aero Club of America Nucleus of
One Faction, While National
Council and Aeronautical As
sociation Are Others.
NEW YORK, June 23. Instead of t,he
harmony aviators hoped for, delegates
representing aviation clubs In different
parts of the country only widened the
breach that has separated them last
night. v
A Joint meeting of the Aero Club of
America and the Aeronautical Associa
tion, held here tonight, broke in hostile
factions and a fight for the control of
the new sport Is threatened.
The Aero Club of America, which
hitherto has dominated domestic avia
tion by virtue of Its membership In the
International Aeronautic Federation
and its agreement with the, Wright
brothers, is the nucleus around which
one of . the organizations will be
formed. ' Opposed will b,e the American
Aeronautical Federation, organized last
night from a bolt from the Joint con
vention. Conference Is Held.
The bolting delegates, representing
iS clubs and a membership of 3000,
later held 'a conference and decided to
launch the National Council of Affil
iated Clubs of the Aero Club of Amer
ica. An organization will be effected
today. ...
The National council was authorized
by the directors of the Aero Club at a
meeting last night. A resolution adopted
confirms the Aero Ciub as the repre
sentative In this country of the Inter
national Aeronautical Federation, but
provides that all National affairs are
to. be referred to the council, which
consists of one member from each af
filiated club. The Aero Club will name
the chairman.
Council Will Decide Meets.
The selection of sites for Interna
tional meets will be vested In the Na
tional council after 1910, and a com
mittee from the council is to deal with
questions involving the sanctioning, of
National meets.
After the retirement of the faction
supporting the Aero Club, the American
Aeronautical Federation elected Hudson
Maxim president, Thomas E. A. Hill,
secretary, and R. C. Northwood, treas
urer. Separate, meetings of the federation
and association were held yesterday
morning, when temporary officers were
named by each.
The trouble began when the two
organizations met in a joint conven
tion yesterday afternoon. The rights of
delegates from the Federation to sit in
joint convention was challenged by t .s
Aero Club,' and a four hours' wrangle
followed. Eventually, all were seated
and the convention took a recess, but
when it reassembled the temporary of
ficers resigned and led the march of
bolters from the hall.

second anniversary of the date on which
they fir at met. Miss Bertha Bradbury, a
beautiful young, woman of Chicago, and
Arthur C. Hupp,- cashier of the Bank of
Southern California, were married here
Miss Bradbury, who is a daughter of
Martin Bradbury, of Chicago, was visit
ing in Seattle two years ago, when she
first met Mr .Hupp, who was then a
resident of that city, and it was a case
of love at first sight. Although the young
woman returned East and Mr. Hupp
came to Los Angeles, the attachment con
tinued and the marriage today was the
culmination of a long engagement.

It appears that when the term "Japan"
is used It includes not only the original
islands, together with Formosa and Sa

is similar to that of the colonies named.
In Importance the new colonial board is
equal to the Department of State.
George Huthmann, Contractor,

George Huthmann, 23 years of age, a

quarters without bail. Huthmann admits
his guilt.

Under Tonic Treatment Her Appetite
Was Restored and Every Symptom
of x Her Trouble Disappeared as
Her Blood Wa Built Up.
Weak, pale, nervous, ambitionless peo
ple have their' most trying time in the
spring and early summer when the effect
of the shut-up, inactive life of the past
winter shows itself. To be strong, active,
energetic, hungry may seem impossible
to the sufferer with thin, sluggish blood
but it is not as the following case shows:
Mrs. L. H. Litecher, whose husband is
a grocer, of Dayton, Ore., has found
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to have so much
merit that she gives them hearty praise.
She says :
"About fifteen years ago my blood
became thin and I was generally run
down owing to weakness common to my
sex. My heart bothered me, my stomach
was weak and I had no appetite. I was
Bubject to dizziness and headaches and
felt tired and without ambition. I was
nervous and could not sleep well. This
was my condition every spring as the
confinement indoors during the winter
seemed to impoverish my blood.
"The doctors said that I needed some
thing to build me up but they never
seemed to help me. It was not until I
tried Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that I
found a medicine adapted to my case.
The pills helped me in a few days. My
appetite picked up and I grew stronger.
By the time I had taken six boxes my
blood was in good condition and I waa
"I take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills every
spring and am in good health as a result.
I have taken the pills after childbirth
and I hare found nothing better to
strengthen me. They are good for the
nursing mother and child. I can hardly
find words to express my gratitude for
being restored to good health."
Our valuable booklet,-"Plain Talks to
Women," will be sent free to any suffer
ing woman upon request.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are highly
recommended for anaemia, chlorosis, de
layed development, after-effects of child
birth and leucorrhcea.
Dr. Williams Pink Pills are sold by all
druggists, or will be sent, postpaid, on
receipt of price, 50 cents per box ; six
boxes for $2.50, by the Dr. Williami
Medicine Company, Schenectady, N. Y.
East Side merchants.
Confronted with the bogus script last
night, Huthmann broke down and con
fessed. When the officers were4 about to
take him to Jail there was an affecting
scene enaeted between Huthmann and
his young wife, whom he married less
than a year ago.

the Pythian Sisters.. Astoria desired the

made a part of the centennial celebration
now being prepared by the oldest town
in Oregon.
Portland delegates to the session of
the grand lodge were responsible, vir
tually, for the selection of Astoria as
the meeting place. The sentiment of
members from some of the smaller towns
of the state was in favor of continuing
the session in Portland. The outsiders
are alive to the attractions of Portland
and desire to come here, while the Port

once in a while. The vote of the Port
