President Drops Bomb When He
Announces ltecess Appointment
Over Protest of Representa

OREGONIAN NEWS BUREAU, Wash
ington, Aug. S3. (Special.) President
Wilson droDDed a bomb In the midst
I of the Washington Democracy when he
announced today he had appointed Rob
I coe Drumheller. of Walla Walla, as Col
lector of Customs for the btate ol
Washington at $000 a year.
Mr. Drumheller was decidedly a aara
horse and until his appointment was
I announced it was not known his name
was under consideration. He waa put
forward as a compromise candidate by
ex-Senator George Turner and Hugo
Wallace, of Tacoma, and was appointed
over the vigorous protest of Represen
tative Dill, Washington's lone Demo
crat in Congress.
Drumheller's appointment occasioned
much surprise, especially In view of the
fact that the Drumheller family in
Eastern Washington belongs to the
conservative Democratic faction, the
Turner crowd, and is arrayed against
the progressive or llson Taction.
Drumheller's uncle. D. M. Drumheller,
of Spokane, was delegate to the Balti
more convention and with Turner neia
the Washington delegation for Clark
and from Wilson until the forty-sixth
and last ballot, after Wilson's nomina
tion had been assured.
Fight la Senate Due.
Governor Lister, who is in Wash
ington today, said he had taken no part
In the Collectorship- fight, but It is
known from Washington Democratic
sources that a fight will be made to
prevent Drumheller's confirmation
when his nomination is sent to the Sen
Drumheller. however, will take of
fice Immediately under his recess ap
pointment and that appointment is ef
fective until the end of the next ses
sion of Congress unless his nomination
in the meantime should be rejected.
Representative Dill, who passed sev
eral weeks in Washington, D. C last
June, strongly urged the appointment
of George K. Stone, or Spokane, un
his arrival in Washington state he
called a conference at Tacoma in an ef
fort to get an agreement among the
party leaders on some candidate lor
Collector of Customs. That meeting
showed the leaders hopelessly dead
locked and then, for the first time,
Hugh Wallace proposed Drumheller as
a compromise. His suggestion met witn
mlKhty protest, led by Dill, wno
served notice that if Drumheller should
be appointed he would make protest to
the Senate and undertake to have his
confirmation rejected, largely because
Drumheller had opposed him in ine
Democratic primaries last year.
f-enates Ceurse Foreseen.
Unfortunately for . Dill, the Senate
does not give ear to protests of mem
bers of the House in Presidential ap
pointments, and as both Washington
Senators are Republicans they are like,
ly to keep hands off and let the Sen
ate take Ita course. As between of
fending President Wilson, who now
stands sponsor for Drumheller, and of
fending Representative Dill there is
little doubt as to what the Senate
Up to today It was supposed ex-Sen
ator Turner still was backing Martin
Maloney. of Colfax, for the Collector-
ship, and that Wallace was keeping
out of the fight.
Much C Todd, former Democratic

Trial Cited In Controversy Over Juris

OREGON CITY. Or.. Aug. 23. (Spe

that Multnomah County lacks Jurisdic

spite a Portland paper which yesterday
called his attention to Domunick Pac

County to life imprisonment for a crime
alleged to have been committed in
Mr. Hedges calls attention to the
fact that Paccini's victim died in a
Portland hospital. "The crime was
completed in neither county," he said.
"Both Mu.tnomah and Clackamas had
equal jurisdiction in that case. -he
Paccini case is like the Roberts case.
The two youths shot by Roberts died

The Acting District Attorney is firm
in his opinion that Multnomah County
had no right to probe the Hill case and
believes the statute to provide either
county can take up a crime committed
within a mile of the boundary line only
when there is doubt as to the location
of the crime or when the location of
the boundary line is in doubt.

Sunday night, on his return home from

It was on the Cornell road, just out
side the city limits, that Judge Steven
son saw a dark object ahead of him,
running along the road. He endeavored
to steer clear of It, and as his lights
brought It into prominence, he noticed
a broad white stripe down its back. His
then frantic efforts to miss the animal
nearly resulted in ditching the auto
mobile and did result in running over
Followed by a pungent trail at" scent
Judge Stevenson crossed the city to his
home. Yesterday morning he opened
the door his garage. The smell of
gasoline was noticeable by its absence,
but there was something in its stead.
He turned the hose loos inside, but
later reported that it did little good.
"Whew, I'm sure sorry I hit that
animal," remarked the Judge when in
With him in the machine at the time
were his wife and son, and Bert Haney,
all of whom were soon aware that the
automobile had run over something.

DRY ACT CALLED INSULT
george: c brownell declares
it transfers saloon to home.
Demand Made for Amendment to Pre
vent Shipments of Liquor and
Church Audience Applauds. ,
OREGON CITY, Or., Aug. 23. (Spe
cial.) George C. Brownell, one of the
state's leading advocates of prohibi
tion, last night continued his attack on
the new prohibition law, when he spoke
from the pulpit of the First Methodist
Church. When he demanded that the
prohibition law be amended, his point .
was received with decided enthusiasm
by the congregation.
Mr. Brownell denounced the new
law, which will go into effect January
1, 1916, as a measure which would .
transfer the association of the sa
loon to the home. Ho declared that
it was framed to suit Portland V.quor
interests and that it would be next
to impossible to enforce the new meas
ure. He began his talk by explaining his
motive in making the attack on the
prohibitory statute. He would never
be a candidate for a public office
again, he said. He believed it his duty
to point out evils he has seen else
where in prohibition states.
"I was a County Attorney lor six :
years in Kansas when the prohibition
law went into effect there and I know
how the people takes these measures."
he said. "I saw saloons running wide
open during the time I was County
Attorney, and they were running wide .
open after I left that state. 1 know
how long it took Kansas before the
public spirit was sufficiently aroused
to enforce the statute, and I know that
human nature is the same in Oregon as
it was in Kansas."
Mr. Brownell read the state consti
tutional amendment, and declared that
it was the expressed will of the peo
ple to have prohibition, to sh'ut out the
use of liquor altogether. The Legis
lature, considering itself above the
people, he said, had ignored the wishes
of the voters and enacted a law which
was an insult to the intelligence of the
