Three-Year-Old Roy Dying as Result
of Seattle's "Sane" Celebration.
SEATTLE. July 5. Ten persons were
more or less seriously injured in acci
dents incident to the. Independence day
celebration here yesterday. One of
these, .the 3-year-old son of C. M. John
son, was so badly burned in an explo
sion that he is not" expected to live.
Little effort was made by the police
to enforce the recently-passed "sane
Fourth" ordinance, it having been dis
covered that the law was deficient in
several vital parts. A new ordinance
will be introduced in the Council im
mediately, and it is believed that next
year's celebration will be on a much
quieter scale than the one this year.

out In the laundry of Wan Lee, on lower
Main street last night, and before it was
under control swept away the entire row
of frame buildings on the west side of
the street between Island and Upton
streets. The- whole town at one time
seemed to be in, danger. The fire is
thought to have been caused by fire

was soon brought under control. Good
work was done by volunteers with

In Letter, Executive Says He Will
File Declaration of Candidacy In
Few Days Health Better.
SALEM, Or., July 5. (Special.) A let
ter received this morning from Governor
Frank W. Benson, who is now in San
Francisco, bears the news that the Gov
ernor is preparing to file his daclaration
of Intention to become aindidate for re
election to the office ot Secretary of
The letter also says that the Governor
is rapidly improving in health, that, he
has not felt better for several years and
that he is getting anxious to return to
the state. It is expected he will return
about July 20, when he will probably
resume the duties now being taken care
of by Acting Governor Jay Bowerman.
Many friends of the Governor in this
city had become alarmed at reports from
San Francisco and believed he would
retire from the political arena this year
altogether. They took his request to
Bowerman to act as Chief Executive' in
his stead, as a tacit understanding that
Benson had retired from the field.
The letter; however, sets this idea at
rest and plainly states that the petition
for his re-election win be filed within a
few days, probably before the Governor's
return from the South.

Petition Out to Kill "Use of Xcts by
SALEM, Or., July 5. An Initiative peti
tion for an act to make it unlawful for
persons to nsh In the Rogue River with
anything: but a line and hook was re
ceived by the Secretary of State today.
It was prepared, by a majority of anglers
residing in the district several miles
above the mouth of Rogue River, and is
mainly for the purpose of protecting the
smaller fish from being caught and
thrown aside by commercial fishermen
along the lower river. Riparian owners
to the shore land along Rogue River
use fine-mesh nets under the present fish
lawn, and owing to several large fishing
concerns controlling In the neighborhood
of 20 miles of shore land on the lower
river, a great quantity of small steelhead
salmon are being caught and thrown
aside because they are too small for can
ning purposes. These fish. It Is claimed,
take the hook on the upper river readily
and are a very sportive fish, and for this
reason should be protected from the mesh
nets of the commercial fishermen.

ciation will meet in .his city at the time
of the cherry fair, later in the week. The

bers from various parts of the Valley,

sideration twill be that of fighting fruit
pests. A move was begun in this city

tion of the Oregon Agricultural College
and the Federal Government. It is hoped
to secure an appropriation from the Leg.

be asked to bear the burden and ways
and means will be devised to ascertain
how this may best be done.

Twenty-One Prize-Winners Find On Investigation That Prices Are Much
Lower at Eilers Music House. Bring in Your Checks
We'll Allow Full Face Value.
The winners in a, recent publicity contest (?) conducted by an obscure Michigan factory are fairly pour
ing into Eilers Music House to take advantage of our splendid offer. We've announced that we would accept
all prize checks whether they be for $1.00 or $125.00 as a bona-fide off our regular established lowest retail
prices. This arrangement is made possible through the co-operation of nine of America's largest and fore
most piano factories. .
This result is not surprising in view of the questionable method of juggling prices in which these small
and unknown dealers are indulging. Altogether 21 cireful and shrewd buyers, after an investigation, turned
their checks into Eilers Piano House toward payment of a fine piano. This certainly is conclusive proof.
The purchase of a Kimball, Story & Clark, Haddorff,
Hallet & Davis, Lester, Hobart M. Cable, King1, Schumann or
any other one of our list of over thirty celebrated high
grade makes is not a matter of experiment as to the piano's
tone, durability and lasting qualities, nor of speculation or
conjecture as to what the price should be. Our makes of
pianos have been sold in this territory for so many years
and the prices are so well established that to buy one of
them carries with it the assurance and satis
faction which comes only with a knowledge
and experience of years.
It makes no difference to whom
your check is made payable, it
will be accepted by us. You are
the owner of the check and are
free to make any disposition of it
you may see fit.
Each and every piano leaving
this store is guaranteed for from
five to ten years by an old-time
honored manufacturer, as well as
by ourselves, and in addition
thereto, each purchaser of an in
expensive piano is made doubly
secure by receiving our two
years' free trial exchange agree
ment. Shop all around, visit the other
piano stores if you wish, but by
all means make a rigid compari
son of our values with those of
fered you elsewhere before mak
ing your final decision. You will '
then do as did these twenty-one
people whose checks are photo
graphed herewith, by purchasing
your piano of the old, reliable

Lingenfelter's Retirement Not
Due to Original Accusations.
Intention to Resign Not Mentioned
Before Trip to Washington to
Hold Conference Xew Man
Agreeable to Borah.
Boise. Idaho, July 5. (Special.) That
an ' opportunity was given to United
States District Attorney C. H. Lingen
felter to resign from office or accept
the alternative of suspension or re
moval following: the conference he
held last week at Washing-ton with
the Department of Justice is evident
from authoritative reports In Federal
circles, as well as Washington dis
patches received here. Mr. Lingenfel
ter is now en route to Boise from the
East, and a statement from him may
serve to clear up the speculation rela
tive to his sudden abandonment of the
Federal office he has held for two years.
There is a growing belief among
those familiar with the sudden turn
of events in the district attorney's
office that the Department of Justice
has determined to place the lid on
what occurred in Washington between
the Attorney-General and District At
torney Lingenfelter. Federal officfals
here have knewn that charges had
been made against the district attor
ney and that the Department had taken
much pains to investigate them. The
resignation will take effect as soon
as the -new appointee. S. L. Tipton, has
had an opportunity to become familiar
with the wishes of the Department.
It was learned today that the graver
accusations against the district attor
ney are not the general charges pre
ferred when he first took office, re
lating to the connection with a land
case at Lewiston before he became
district attorney, but instead involve
his action in becoming attorney in
other land cases after he was in office,
and doing so without the permission
of the Department.
The attempt that has been made to
draw special government agents with
headquarters in Boise into the Lingen-v
felter episode is denied by these agents,
who, while familiar with some of the
facts in connection with the departure of
the District Attorney for Washington,
knew little of its possible outcome.
Prior to the sudden trip of Mr. Lin
genfelter East, attention of the De
partment of Justice was called to the
evident aonflict that existed in the
Idaho district- For several months
these questions were investigated.
Later, according to reliable reports.
Senator W. B. Heyburn and Senator
XV. E. Borah were consulted. They
were asked if they had any objection
to the removal or resignation of the
present district attorney. Both said
they had none, and preparations were
then made to select his successor,
S. L. Tipton being appointed. His ap
pointment is agreeable to Senator
No intimation ever has been given
In Federal circles that District Attor
ney Lingenfelter wished to resign to
engage in private practice, and this
statement, coming from Washington
after his reported removal, was a sur
prise to Federal officials. He left a
good practice in Lewiston to enter
Federal employ when N. M. Ruick was
left arm near the elbow, tearing away
the flesh to his wrist and then imbedding
his teeth in Simpson's hand and fingers.
When the monkey was pulled away.
Simpson was bleeding profusely, his flesh
hanging in shreds from his forearm.
Simpson recently acquired the monkey
from Charles Hunt, also with the show,
and the animal was not familiar with the
ways of hi new master.
