Attorney W. H. Abel, of Montesano,
assisted the prosecuting attorney,
while the defense was conducted by
M. C Welsh, of this city. There was
a large representation present from
North River, most of whom were sub
penaed for the prosecution. The plain
tiff still bears evidence of the harsh
treatment alleged to have been admin
lsted by Frank Ross.
The assault grew out of - a contro
versy between Mrs. Vanderpool .and
Mrs. Ross over a valuable timber claim
which it is alleged Mra Ross "Jump
ed" during the temporary absence of
Mra Vanderpool from her claim. Brad
ley, who is the nearest neighbor to
Mra Vanderpool. and who assisted her
in Improving the property. was
thought to have been unduly officious
with Mra Ross and her sons when
they took possession of the claim.
The defense charged that Bradley
had made derogatory and slanderous
statements about Mrs. Ross. Bradley
was accosted last Sunday and pom
meled it is alleged, by Frank Kcaayho
was occompanied by his brothers. Earl
and Forest Martin. The trio were ar
rested two days later on complaint of

Official One of - Best-Known
Executives - in Portland.
J. W. Ransom, general agent iof the
San Francisco & Portland Steamship
Company, known as the "Big Three
fleet, leaves that service September 15
and after a short vacation will cast
his lot with another transportation cor
poration. W. D. Wells, of San Fran
cisco, formerly general agent of the
Alaska Pacific Steamship Company and
latterly superintendent for the Califor
nia ft Atlantic line, which recently dis
continued operations, is considered as a
possible successor to Mr, Ransom.
. No man holding an executive position
in the maritime sphere here Is more
generally known than Mr. Ransom, for
he bas held the position of agent. bf
the line for more than five years and
until two years ago bad dual responsi
bility in that he was agent for the
Portland ft Asiatic Steamship Com
pany. For nine years he has been
connected with fleets sailing from
Alnsworth dock and In fact his entire
transportation experience has been
linked with the O.-W. R. ft N.. or Har
riman system's connection with water
lines. Before going to Alnsworth dock
as chief clerk he was in the traffic de
partment In charge of cargo matters
pertaining to the Portland & Asiatic
fleet. In those days, when the well
known "Indra" steamers wcra on the
route, and later with four Hamburg
American - steamers, there was more
business handled than there has been
elnce, as Portland was a distributing
center for Oriental stuff and every
steamer brought large shipments for
transcontinental points. When the
Blue Funnel Included Portland in its
'itinerary the freight was also looked
after by the O. R. & N and Mr. Ransom
G. L. Blair, general manager of the
San Francisco ft Portland, who Is in
the city and received Mr. Ransom's
resignation, says that the matter of ap
pointing a successor has not been
acted on. Mr. Wells is said by steam
ship and railroad men to have enjoyed
wide experience In operating and traf
fic matters and it is assumed that only
a few days will elapse before It Is set
tied whether he is to come here.

Marconi Interests Plan Innovation
for Ocean Travelers.
As an accommodation to travelers at

provided for the transmission of "ocean
letters" at sea after tomorrow, and
messages of from 30 to 100 words can
be sent from one steamer to another
heading in the opposite direction to
be mailed when the receiving ship
reaches port. For the first 10 words
$1.10 will be charged and an added
charge of I cents will apply on let
ters ud to 100 words.
While the service will probably be
more convenient to persons traveling
across the Pacific, it will no doubt
often be used by those on Coast ves
sels, especial!) when Important busi
ness engagements are to be arranged
Communications destined for Interior
points can also be forwarded in ad
vance of the traveler reaching port
and the rate Is lower than now applies
to -ordinary dispatches.

Lecture in Southern Oregon.
ASHLAND. Or.. Aug-. 29. (Special.)
Sam Hill, apostle of the good roads
movement, gave an Illustrated lecture
here last night In the Chautauqua
building-. The Illustrations were pref
aced by common sense talks on the Is
sues Involved In the campaign for im
proved highways, though no mention
was made of the proposed bond issue
which is contingent upon the result of
a special election to be held Septem
The speaker, after Introduction by
President McCoy, of the Commercial
Club, made It manifest that the good
roads movement is not a mere matter
of sentiment, neither is it biased by
selfish motives In behalf of automo
biles, inasmuch as In a great majority
of cases more accessible markets and
reduced transportation charges would
be the major benefits derived. The
pictures accompanying the address were
