PLANT FOUND ON ISLAND Secret Service Agent Believes Tale of Prisoner, Who Says This Is His First Offense and Refuses to Name Accomplices. ALBANY, Or., Aug. 6. (Special.) Charged with being a member of a gang of counterfeiters who have been operating on Kiger's Island, in the "Willamette Klver, sx miles above Cor vallls, L F. Morris was arrested today by William A. Glover, of the Govern ment Secret Service. He was placed in the Linn County Jail and a deputy United States Marshal will arrive here tomorrow to take him to Portland to appear in the Federal Court. Morris came to Albany three months ago and has been working steadily as a sign painter. In his shop when he was arrested were found three spu rious dollars. Several weeks ago the Government Secret Service learned of attempts at counterfeiting on Kiger's Island. Some counterfeit coins and moulds were found by Glover In an old cabin on the Island. All of the counterfeits found were of small denominations. An in vestigation implicated Morris. At the request of Glover Albany officers have watched him for several weeks, the Government officers gathering evi dence in the meantime. When Glover arrived today Morris surrendered with out trouble. Glover intimates that at least one of the others Implicated will be appre hended soon. Morris denies that ho ever passed or attempted to pass any counterfeit coins, but admits he knew the men at work on Kiger's Island. For six weeks. Just prior to coming to Albany, Morris says he was cutting wood on Kiger's Island, and during that time he was involved in some experiments at coun terfeiting in a cabin, where the coun terfeit coins were found. He asserts that the experiments were a failure and no coins suitable for passing were manufactured. He says he never tried to pass any himself, and so far as he knows none of the others who worked with him did. He refuses to give the names or number of the men who worked at the cabin. All were ama teurs, says Morris. "The 83 found In my shop were kept as curios," says Morris. "I never dreamed of any trouble, as I had never tried to pass a single coin." Glover believes the work on Kiger"s Island was an experiment of amateurs. Morris asserts this is the first time he has been in any trouble. He is 28 years old and is unmarried and formerly lived at Hood River. His parents re side In California.

Owner of Machine, "Who Was in Charge, Says One of Companions Made Grab for Wheel. ROSEBURG, Or., Aug. 5. (Special.) That either Fendall Sutherlin or Mrs. Helen Wllbanks grasped the steering wheel of his large touring car and thereby detoured it from the road through a near-by fence was the sub stance of a written explanation made public here today by James Hildeburn, owner of the ill-fated car and one of the nine persons who sustained injur ies as a result of an auto accident this morning. While openly accusing Suth erlin or Mrs. Wllbanks of interfering with the steering wheel, Mr. Hildeburn says that the one responsible is ex cusable on the grounds that they were excited and probably thought that he had lost control of the machine. While numerous theories as to how the accident occurred have been ad vanced, Mr. Hildeburn insists that he was driving along the road at a speed not to exceed 15 miles an hour when his dog Jumped from the running board and in front of the car. Mr. Hildeburn says he turned the car slightly to avoid striking the dog, when either SutheTlln or Mrs. Wilbanks grasped the steering wheel. An instant later the car darted off the road, crashed through a fence and, after ploughing through soft dirt for some distance, halted in an or chard SO feet from the right of way. As the caT left the road the occupants were thrown to the ground violently. Gertrude Hildeburn is suffering from a fracture of the nose and concussion of the brain. She will recover. Fen dall Sutherlin sustained a fractured shoulder blade, a broken jaw. sprained ankle and bruises. Herman Marks was injured about the head and spine. Mrs. Wilbanks, whose recovery is doubtful. sustained a puncture or the cnest cav ity. Others slightly injured were Roy Rhoadman. James Hildeburn, Maud Wilson and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Brand. The party was returning from drive to Oakland at the time of the accident. All are prominent locally. Mrs. Wilbanks' mother is expected here tomorrow from California. The car is badly damaged.

Refuses Assistance of Social ists and Apparently Willing to Leave, Says One of Criti cised Officers,' COQUTT.TiK. Or.. Aur. . 6. fSoeclHl The threat of Governor- West to insti tute an investigation into the attitude or Coos County officers in the deporta tion proceedings and to remove from office those who were lax in official duties comes as music to the ears of Sheriff W. W. Gage. The Sheriff today siaiea -mat ne courted a full and com plete investigation and only feared tnat the Chief Executive would not carry out his promise in the matter. Sheriff Gage says he stands pre pared to convince the inquisitors that ur. jLeacn refused protection at Ban don on the day of his deportation and also tnat Leach further, declined the good offices of Socialist friends who desired to telephone the Sheriff in this city for protection upon his arrival here by boat. The Sheriff says Leach paid his own fare from Bandon to Co quille, which he says would indicate that Leach was willing to take his de parture Immediately. Lpon Leach's arrival Attorney E. L. Cannon, of Salem, wired Sheriff Gage to meet Leach at Mrytle Point, as he desired to return to Bandon forthwith, and give him all necessary protection To this the Sheriff replied that he would enforce all laws for the protec tion of persons within the scope of his duties and would give Leach the same protection accorded other citizens, but that he found no warrant of law oblig- ng him to act as an escort to any per- son. Cannon advised Leach to have any persons threatening him placed under bond to keep the peace. The Coos County officials want the Governor to make a personal investi gation of the so-called mob rule. 2 PORTLAND MEN CHOSEN C. V. Dyment Joins Department of Journalism J. P.

STRAHORN TELLS PLANS OREGON COAST TIMBER COUN TRY TO BE TAPPED BY ROAD. Bellfountain Branch Will Be Ex tended in Time Into Alsea. River Territory, Thence to Waldport. EUGENE, Or, Aug. 6. (Special.) A hitherto almost inaccessible section of the Oregon coast ultimately will be reached by the Portland, Eugene & Eastern, according to President Stra- horn, who announced while here yes terday that the Alpine branch of the Portland, Eugene & Eastern will be extended seven miles and the Bellfoun tain branch ten miles this year, reach- ing almost to the crest of the Coast Range. It Is the Bellfountain branch which Is, in time, to be extended into the Alsea River territory and thence to Waldport, on Alsea Bay. The imme diate purpose "of the extensions Is de. velopment of timber territory, for even now ten carloads of logs a day are be ing carried on the Bellfountain line and seven cars a day of piling and ties an the Alpine branch. When Stephen Carver built his Cor vallis & Alsea south from CorvalHs he intended to cross the mountains, which at this place are comparatively low, into the Alsea territory, and the line Into Monroe was a sort of branch for the accommodation of the Wilhelm flour mills. This little branch from Alpine Junction to Monroe has now become a link in the Portland-Eugene line of the Portland, Eugene & East ern. The plan of reaching the Coast country, however, has not been given up, and in the course of time the rails will reach one of the rich dairying and fishing sections of the Coast coun try and one of the prettiest vacation spots imaginable. CHEAP LIGHT INSPECTION Proposed Reduction Will Cut Cost on Outside of Buildings. Reduction of the fee for the inspec tion of electric lighting on the outside of buildings, on marquises and for the Installation of motors and generators, will be recommended to the City Com mission by a committee appointed re cently to revise the city's electric code. The committee practically completed its work yesterday and will prepare a code in written form at once. If the code is adopted by the Com mission there will be a reduction from 5 cents to 3 cents per outlet on fixtures for the decoration of buildings on the outside, for the installation of lights in marquise entrances and for the in stallation in certain specified places of motors and electric generators or dyna mos. No reduction for lignts on tne inside of buildings or residences is con templated. Another change in the code will be the regulation of the number of cir cuits on a basis of floor space Instead of by the number of outlets. At pres ent six outlets are permitted on each circuit. The size of the lights used often overtaxes the wires and increases fire danger. Under the present ordl nance It Is impossible to control this. By changing the basis to that of the amount of floor space to be lighted the problem, it is thought, will be solved and fire protection will be greater. M.
