Officers of the f!nghip Beaver, of
the "Rig Three" fleet, were Impressed
with a coincidence In connection with
the first information they received of
the death of Captain William Kld
ston. who was the first tiklpper of the
ship' and who died last week near
TtalhrM. while In command of the "a-a-lflo
Msll liner Pennsylvania. The
news was megaphoned to the Reaver
by Capt.ifn Cousin. of the steamer
Oovernor. as the Beaver was bound
aouth from Portland and the two
vcscela passed off Tolnt Reyes, the
Tieaver being then over the approxi
mate spot where she struck and sank
the Norwegian steamer SeIJa a year
ago In November.
It wa said that Captain Kldston
lied of heart disease, but his friends
feel that worry over the sinking; of
the FeIJa had much to do with his
rapid decline, aa he lost command Im
mediately on the Beaver returning to
fan Francisco and was succeeded by
Captain Nelson. After Captain Cousins
bailed Captain Nelson with a mega
phone and Imparted the sad storv. he
confirmed It by wireless. The officers

VVILLEY IS SCORED
County Commissioners Now
HIGHWAY PROBLEM CITED
Man Engaged to Expert Official's J
Books rails to Kecogiilxc Dirfcr
enco Ilctxxeen Square and
Cubic J Vet.
DeclarinK that J. 5L Wllley. an ac
countant who is checking the books
of county officials. Is showing; extreme
antagonism to tho officials by making
premature statements regarding his
work, the County Commissioners pre
pared a statement yesterday explaining
the actions of the accountant and show
ing the attitude of the court In regard
to Warrenlte. a new hard-surrace ma
terial which the Commissioners are ex
amining. WUley Is declared to be acting very
peculiarly In his Investigation, and Is
Maid to be violating his pledge to make
no statement to the public until he re
ports to the commtttee, which was ap
pointed by. Governor West at the Insti
gation of the County Court to examine
the workings of the Commissioners.
The statument of th Commissioners
and County Judge Cleeton follows:
Articles Are Mlaleadlaa?.
"Inasmuch aa there has been some
opposition raised against the announced
plan of the County Court to use. If
practical and economical, a material
known as Warrenlte on the roads of
Multnomah County, we wish to present
the plan to the public In a fair manner.
Tnless statements which have ap
peared in certain of the newspapers,
and which are antagonistic to whatex-er
la done by the County Court, whether It
is for the good of the community or not,
be refuted, there might be some ground
to question our actions In regard to
this Warrenlto material. Commissioner
L.ightner, after Investigating the mate
rial, reported that he thought It would
be the menns of saving money to the
county, and recommended a trial of tho
"Warrenlte Is nothing new. It is used
on many highways already. Including
one which Is being built between Seat
tle and Taeoma. Commissioner Llght
ner made the statement that he thought
the material could bo laid for $1 a
yard. This would Include 55 cents to
tho contracting company for furnishing
the bitumen and the mixing plant and
materials. The balance of 45 cents. It
was figured, would prodtico the rock to
place In the material.
Yxllley Falls to lavtlgate.
'"Without investigating. J. M. Wllley.
an uccountnnt who at our request Is
checking up he books of the county
officials under the direction of a com
mittee appointed by Gox-ernor West,
made statements to the press which Is
antagonistic to the County Court. These
figures are absolutely misleading. It
waa shown by him that It costs the
county at least tl to produce a yard of
rock, and ho contended, therefore, that
the Warrenlte surfacing could not be
laid for Jl a yard. In this statement
It was apparent that no thought was
given to the proposition before such
statements were made. As a matter of
fact It docs cost over II to produce a
yard of rock, but this Is a cubic yard.
It happens that the Warrenlte surfacing-
we are Investigating Is but two
Inches thick, and. therefore, a yard of
rock costing us the $1 or more to pro
duce is spread over 18 yards. Mr.
Wllley would lead the public to believe
that we placed tho rock on the road
three feet deep, which shows that he
is not conscientious In his statements.
"We wish to say that there la noth
ing secret about our dealings with any
company owning any rights on road
surfacing. We are investigating this
material because It has been found suit
able for road-building elsewhere, and
our only Interest Is to use this or some
similar material If It will reduco the
cost of maintaining the county roads,
which Is the prime cost in road-bulld-Ing.
The Initial Investment In building
a road Is but a portion to be consid
ered, and if .by a reasonable expenditure
It Is possible to reduce the cost of
maintenance and ultimately save money
for tho county, we consider It our duty
to Investigate. We have closed no deal
with any concern.
Wllley Scored for Staad Taken.
"As to Mr. Willey's Intentions. It Is
hard to say, but It would appear that
at the outart he Is antagonistic to the
County Court and the County Commis
sioners. Why, we do not know. He
has been sent here to Investigate the
county books and Is being paid $15 per
day. It waa our understanding that
he was to remain silent about his work,
and we thought that he would not Join
tho ranks of certain of the press which
is sparing no effort to oppose the Coun
ty Commissioners on whatever turn it
"It looks bad at the outset that such
a man should investigate our books. If
he Jumps to such wild conclusions as
he did on this rock proposition, failing
to see the difference between a square
yard and a cubic yard. It wonid seem
that he would not be a fit man to oc
cupy the position of accountant. It
would seem that he could Juggle figures
to suit himself.
"He announced that he was making
the statement as a taxpayer. Unfortu
nately for him his record as a taxpayer
baa been looked up. ajld it la found
that bis tsx for last year amounted to
I3.S0, which amount has not been paid
and is shown on the delinquent rolL
lie has taxes of 14.8 on household
goods against him this year, which
amount has not been paid. The tax
rolls do not show that he owns any

BAKER. Or., March 19. (Special.)
Worry and inactivity in the County
Jail is believed to be the cause of thu
insanity of Walter Fletcher, who was
today Judged insane and will be sent
to Salem at once. Fletcher was
charged with breaking into the store
of J. J. Chute, of Durkee, and takinc
some articles and a few dollars in
money, about a month ago. Hn was
indicted by the grand jury and pleaded
not guilty, his trial being set for next
month. He worried constantly over tho
arrest, and his actions became so vio
lent that the examination was held
