Senate Probers Regaled With
Testimony Offered by
George S. Shepherd.
CAPRON OFFERS TO FIGHT

fieers Now In Charge.
After hours of routine testimony in
the Inquiry of the Senate committee on
the Oregon Naval Militia, held in the
office of General Finzer last night, the
committee passed a half hour In truly
Jlomeric laughter over the recital of
George S. Shepherd, who was among
the- last of the witnesses called and
who rehearsed his grievances against
the organization from the beginning.
Shepherd was no respecter of persons
or place, and whacked indiscriminately
at the present officers, of the Naval
Militia and the Oregon National Guard,
selecting A. J. Capron, of the Naval
Militia, as his particular object of at
tack. He objected to the fact of Mr. Cap
ron's having served on the board of
Inquiry in his controversy with Captain
Blaln. General Finzer explained that
Capron had been placed on the board
because there existed two factions and
he was regarded as neutral.
"He was more than neutral," snorted
Shepherd. "He double-crossed both
Objections Are Made.
He complained that the board of in
quiry had asked him if he "supported
Bowerman for Governor," which he re
garded as foreign to the discussion in
hand, and said, "I always got along
well with General Finzer when we
were both together, but things hap
pened to me when I went away." Pay

of the board of Inquiry, he objected to

Capron and General Finzer preserved
their good humor and the Senate com
mittee rested in Its chairs and roared
with laughter as the recital went on.
To the query whether he had any
objection to the naval militia in Its
present organization he declared that
he had and proceeded to enumerate

Capron pointed out that this was In

thereby drew upon himself another
volley from Shepherd.

over on us," insisted Shepherd.

Ft. L. Whitcomb, the last witness, be
ing called. Senator Joseph, who con
ducted the Inquiry, rang down the cur
tain on the comedy and resumed the
serious business of the session.
The testimony of the entire evening,
in which a -score or more members and
ex-members of the Naval Militia were
examined, showed little that touched
fn any way the present officers or the
organization as it now stands. The
testimony relating to rumors of mis
management on the part of former
Captain Keynolds was not distinct for
the most part and consisted chiefly of
hearsay Information. Most of the wit
nesses were called last night at the in
stance of O. H. Staron, who was dis
qualified in recent examinations in the
Organisation la Flavored.
B. B. Montag. Chaplain Olson, John
McXulty and others declared their con
fidence in the Naval Militia as organ
ized and said that they believed the
organization was superior to minor in
ternal troubles, which had been magni
fied by parties not fully informed. Mr.
McNulty declared that he believed much
credit for aid In beginning the organ

The principal adverse testimony
dealt with personal delinquencies of
men who had at one. time been mem

Judge McGinn said that he will not

Judge Morrow said that he will hear

Judge McGinn declared that he would
not tie himself down to a definite pro

It was agreed that in pressing cases
the presiding judge may take charge at

Division Superintendent or Pacific
Company Tells 'Why Free Serv

Wholesale denial to the charges of
A. M. Crawford. Attorney-General, that
the Bell telephone system is trying
to break up independent companies in
the state, was made yesterday by W.
J. Phillips, division commercial super
intendent of the Pacific Telephone &
Mr. Phillips explained that he has
not read a copy of the Attorney-General's
communication to the Senate in
which he was quoted as declaring that
the Bell people, in order to kill com
petition, is giving free service in vari
ous towns of the state, but added:
"Corvallis is the only town in the
state where free service is given even
to a limited extent. This free service
is given for the purpose of building
up our own business at Corvallis and
was instituted only after our competi
tor had gained control of the business
there and had led in a movement prac
tically to boycott our company. It is
a well-known fact in that community
that the telephone companies have
been engaged in a struggle for busi
ness and as far as this company is
concerned, it has only been fighting
for a square deal and for the right
to give its service to any persons who
wanted it without subjecting him to
a boycott. .There has been no attempt
to cripple independent lines. In the
State of Oregon we have connecting
agreements with 106 independent com
panies, controlling 26,84 teleptiones.

"In many places consolidations have
been brought about, generally as the
result of a demand therefor from the
public, and after consolidation, the telephone-using
public has received the
benefit of a more extensive and con
venient service. It is also true that
where such consolidations have been
effected there Tias been no effort to
restrict the service, but the same con
nections have been maintained as were
in effect at the time of consolidation.
This is directly In line with the an
nounced policy of the Bell system. The
Home Company at Corvallis has suf
fered no inconvenience or financial
loss by reason of our effort to obtain
business. They have much the larger
subscription list and as conditions are
the same as two years ago, they prob
ably are not living in fear or dread of
the Bell company. Recently, when
the telephone exchanges were consol
idated at Bellingham, Seattle and Ta
coma, long - distance connection was
maintained to and from these ex

Sound and Northwestern companies,

Verdict for $1045.08 Returned by
Jury Against August Klockner.
GOLDEXDALE. Wash., Jan. 31.

colony of Finnish settlers in the Klick

eral years ago leaving a large landed
estate and considerable money. Mrs.
Klockner was past 70 years old and it
was alleged by the heirs that John
Talonen, a farmer residing near Cen
terville. Wash., beguiled her into let
ting him have a large portion of the
money left -her by her husband. .
Mrs. Klockner began suit against
Talonen before her death to recover
$932.15. which she alleged she loaned
him at Astoria in December, 1910, to
pay off two notes for a like amount
that he owed the Bank of Centerville,
which were held by the First National
Bank of Astoria for collection. The
heirs presented a check book stub for
the amount and the canceled notes,
which were found among the woman's
effects, together with depositions made
by bank officials. Talonen denied that
he used the money to take up his notes
at the other bank.

The vote was reached after an ani

whose reinstatement of the officer was

The reinstatement of Colonel De
Clam by M. Miller and was in fulfill
ment of a promise made the officer by
M. Millerand's predecessor in the War
Ministry, M. Messimy. The resigna
