(Special.) -The Benton County grand Jury in session has one of their busiest terms at hand. Chief Interest lies in the case of the state vs. Chester Dickey charged with the embezzlement of 11490 from the Corvallis State Bank, while he was an employe of that Institution. President Moore, of the State Bank. first noticed February S of this year that there was something wrong with the books and kept an eye ora n, in the meantime trying to locate the trouble City Treasurer Davis Issued to Frank Francisco a check for S11.&9 July 1 1314. Someone had since raised the amount so that it read $811.99. About the middle of July Mr. Davis committed suicide, but about three days prior to this Francisco had cashed the check at the Occidental Hotel and the hotel cashed the check at the State Bank the day after Mr. Davis' death. Mr. Moore. not familiar with the Oregon law to the effect of cashing the check after the death of the writer, called an at torney and was advised that it could not be cashed. On looking up the books Mr. Moore found that the books did not tally with the check issued by Davis for 811.99. Mr. Moore called for the stubs of Davis' checkbook, oare fully went over the amounts and found that the check had been raised. Mr. Moore had the auditors brought to Corvallis May 10. 1915. to go over the books. The morning of May 11 Dickey called the bank and said tha he had the mumps and would be un ble to come to work. On May 11 Dickey again called the bank and said that he had the appendicitis and would have to go to Portland. As the auditors worked evidence was brought to light that there was a shortage somewhere. A warrant was issued for Dickey and Portland was searched carefully over, but no Dickey could be found. Finally he was lo cated at Spokane, with his sister. tSher iff Gellatly went after Dickey and brought him back to Corvallis. After several cross-examinations he is al leged to have confessed to raising Da vis check, along with several others. to the amount of 81490. Dickey was arrested and placed in Jail, where he has been waiting the action of th present term of court. GOVERNOR IS RACKED EXTRA SESSION OPPOSED BY REP RESENTATIVE IRVIN.

Samuel U. Irvin, State Representative for Lincoln and Polk counties, who re sides at Newport, heartily opposes an extra session of the Legislature to con sider the Oregon and California Rail road Company's land grant. In his reply to Governor Withycombe he said: "It is simply a business proposition to be adjusted in an equitable way. The Government made the land grant to the railroad for a specific purpose and stip ulated certain conditions in the grant. If the railroad company had complied with the conditions the , Government would have accomplished its purpose, but it has only complied partly with the conditions. Consequently, the Gov ernment has not received Its full benefit and has a right to change its contract to realise the desired result, so long as such a change does not inflict hardship on other parties concerned. "The interest of the railroad is $2.50 per acre and the traffic derived from the development of lands. If this is made safe to the company there should be no complaint. If conditions have changed so that the lands are much more valuable than at the time of the grant, the increase should go to the Government. According to the stipula tion in the grant the Interest to the railroad could not exceed $2.50 per acre. "If the railroad had complied with the agreement the actual settlers on the land would have received this in crease in value, which would have been Just and in accordance with what the Government Intended the development of the country." , R0SEBURG RAILROAD SURE Southern Pacific Officials Koad-Builders Agree. ihd ROSEBURG BONDS LEGAL County Judge Skipworth Decides Election Was ' Proper.

Approval of Governor Wlthycombe's suggestions for ' settling the Oregon and California land grant problem Is given .n numerous letters received to day by the Executive from Slate Sen ators and State Representatives in the Legislature. Ail of them oppose a spe cial session of the Legislature until a refinlte and final plan of procedure is outlined. C. Scnuebel. Representative, of Ore gon City, says: I So not see inr afcuian fop r.llln, the Legislature tovrtlicr to take ertlon on the decision of the supreme Court In connection with the railroad land. Before th state could purchase the lands. It would be neces- sary to have a constitutional amendment. nd It Is doubtful whether Conrress would pay any attention or would provide the necessary legislation to authorise the state to purchase the iantie. If It were possible for the state to pur chase the landa for $-' .'.O an acre. I believe It would be a rood thine, as the lands could be sold at a ressonable nrlce and vet make a food profit that could be turned Into the flrreduclble school fund. If a special session or the (legislature should be called. In ell probability nothing except polltlca would be piayea. and it mlcht be more of a detriment to the state than a benefit. seantor Smith Gives Opinion. J. C. Smith. Senator, of Grants Pass. says he would not oppose the calling of a special session of the Legislature after a definite method of settling the case had been devised. He writes In part: It seems to me that uMn the eomnletlon of the road as required and the patenting oi mff lanas ry an art or Cong-res, con gress has ended Its rights In the rase. The clause, requiring the sale or the land at the price specified, being enforceMble, It is now up to the courts to see that the railroad company sells these landa to the actual set tlers when audi settlers make the demand and comply with their part of the provision of this act. Whatever value now eststlng In these landa above an acre baa been created by the people or this state who have built the cities and t--ns and Improved the ad jacent lands, and should of a right belong to the stste. and If Congress could devlee some method whereby the state might be made the beneflt-lary of these values. 1 think It should do so. and In that way re imburse the slate for the garfV HH or !.fwvi.ono nst ,h diversion of the part rightfully belonging to the state In the reclamation fund. County hare la Pro fit freed. Senator Smith says the counties in which the land is located should re ceive one-half of the profit In case it reverts to the state and la sold. w. H- Ragsdale. Senator, of Moro. writes: V Hermit me to say that I am not In favor of calling a special session of the Ik1Ih ture In connection with the Supreme Court's decision In this matter, but I am heartHr In accord with lour views, and approve of yoar proposal as lo the disposition of this grant. Ora H. Porter. Representative, Rose burg. says: t agree with you that there la no need of calling the legislature In apeclsl session. There la nothing that our Legislature can do at this time to change matters In the least. If the purchase price of these lands Is raised from .'.. -rf an acre to Its market value, then It would be profitable If the state might In some way fall heir to this ra I sc. But I believe It would be far more profit able to the state to have this land sold to actual settler at J.M an acre and thereby put at least lOOO families en this land. But the land should be sold upon such terma and conditions that only actual settlers qnuld get a deed, and then after a residence of at least three years op the land. ParrkSM Held Impracticable. Thomas Brown, Representative, of Salem, writes: I regard the purchase of these lands by the mme as Impracticable aid a special seaslon of the legislature to consider the matter as absolutely uncalled for.

Represen tatives, suggerT that the Governor name a delegation of prominent cltt sens tc asalst the Oregon delegation In Congress when the land grant Is con sidered. After snnounring his oppo sition to the calling of a special ses sion of the Legislature Mr. Cobb says: I nave given the matter special thought. out at nrsl glance it seems to me that Ore gon nas a special interest In the matter. It la true, those lands were given by the government to me railroad company for specmc purpose, nut tney come In a great measure from witnin the borders of our s and It would seem to me that In view of the ract that we have contributed large sums of money for Irrigation purposes through trie Government of the l nlted Stales, that It Is only rair mat we should be reimbursed In some manner for such money so expended.

My understanding further Is that much ef the land cow held by the railroad company la not the land originally granted to them by the United titalee Covernment. but la Ilea land taken In the place of that con tained In the original grant.

It would be an additional reason for ua to receive the benefits oter and above the amount that the roliroaa com pany Is justly entitled to and the use of thlw money so received, as stated br you. should be held In trust and the Interest thereon ap plied for the benefit of our school, road and rrlgatlon runoe. aa inmcateo.
