IN RAID Oil STILL
Surprise Party Staged by
Coos Bay. Authorities.
MANY BELIEVED INVOLVED
Evidence Said to Have Been Ob
tained Implicating Number
of Prominent Residents.
MARSHF1ELD, Or., June 6. (Spe
cial.) The greatest haul made in this
county of moonshine apparatus and
material was made today by county
and city officers at an isolated spot
in the coast region between North
Bend and Empire. In the raid the
officers walked in upon a woman i
who was operating the two stills, I
which were used by the owner, hold-J
ing a two-quart syrup bottle beneath
A contractor named Kirkland, a
resident of North Bend, was met on
the trip and kept in the party, under
the belief that he was operating a
still in the vicinity. The officers re
fused to give out the woman's name,
saying they had evidence to obtain
Two Lodsed In Jitll.
Kirkland and the woman were both
taken to the county jail by Sheriff
Gage on the afternoon train. The
stills were being operated in a tent
and were the most complete and had
the greatest capacity of any yet dis
covered. The raiding officers said
they were hidden in a retreat diffi
cult of access, and had once before
been almost discovered by officers
who said they had been within 50
feet of them.
The country is heavily wooded
with interwoven salal and other
brushes and criss-crossed by ravines.
At times the searching party had to
crawl to make progress.
Mnfth In Ripe.
The two st'lls were joined into one
outlet and 360 gallons of mash made
from raisins was ripe and being run
The woman, on seeing Sheriff Gage,
entered the tent and poured out sev
eral gallons of liquor before he could
stop her, he said, but he had seen
the method of obtaining the fresh
liquor and held the two-quart bottle
under the worm long enough to pro
cure sufficient evidence for his pur
pose, and the officers then poured out
the mash and burned the apparatus.
The officers declare they have evi
dence that a number of prominent

the present administration, the de
partments at Washington- have be
come a beaureaucracy out of touch
with the people and unapproachable
except through members of congress
and attorneys resident at Washington.
We demand a reform of these abuses.
The officials and employes in the de
partment are the servants of the peo
ple. A proper letter of inquiry written
by any citizen should be answered
within a reasonable time by the fed
eral employe to whom it is addressed,
and a failure to answer should be
ground for discipline and discharge of
the employe responsible therefor.
Another resolution by K. J. Adams,
which would have the convention
pledge the republican party to the ex
tension of federal aid for road con
struction in the western states in lieu
of the taxation lost through the large
areas of public lands withheld by the
government from the tax rolls, also
went to the same sub-committee. At
the same time this sub-committee is
called upon to consider a resolution
offered by Walter L. Tooze Jr. urg
ing the convention to indorse the
woman's suffrage amendment and to
demand that the republican governors
of states which have not yet ratified
call special sessions of their legisla
tures to complete ratification in time
for the elections in November.
One Delegate In Absent.
On motion of Mr. Tooze", the Mc
Camant sub-committee also received
authority to pass on the filling of
vacancies in the list of alternates, it
being discovered that D. J. Cooper of
The Dalles, one of the delegates elect
ed from the 2d district, was not pres
ent and unlikely to come. M. Z.
Donnell of The Dalles, who was runner-up
in the 2d district delegate race,
-was chosen to act in Mr. Cooper's
place, at least until Mr. Cooper ar
rives. Sanfield Macdonald, who is contest
ing the right of Wallace McCamant
to sit as a delegate in the convention
because of McCamant's refusal to
support Hiram Johnson, who received
the Oregon primary preference vote,
occupied a seat in the rear of the
conference room and questioned the
right of the delegation to name the
alternates, holding that such was the
province of the credentials committee
of the convention.
National Committeeman Ralph E.
Williams here disclosed that, irpon
his resolution last Tuesday, the na
tional commitee had made up a tem
porary roll of the Oregon delegation.
including as alternates those losing
candidates for delegates who recfived
the highest vote. Mr. Macdnald was
advised that his name will be includ
ed in this temporary roll as an alter
Temporary Roll Made lTp.
The temporary roll as made up for
Oregon, subject to the approvol of
the credentials committee, follows:
Delegates - at - large Wallace Mc
Camant, Conrad P. Olson and Charles
H. Carey of Portland, and John L.
Rand of Baker. First district Wal
ter L. Tooze Jr. of McMinnville and
K. J. Adams of Eugene. Second dis
trict W. H. Brooke of Ontario and
D. J. Cooper of The Dalles. Third

Lebanon and Frank T. Wrlghtman of
Salem. Second district Frank S.
Curl of Pendleton and M. Z. Donnell
or The Dalles. Third district David
M. Dunne and Daniel Kellaher of
Lodge Note Mentioned.
Delegate Tooze called the' atten
tion of the convention to the fact
that the voters of Oregon had In
structed the delegation to vote for
Senator Henry Cabot Lodge of Massa
chusetts for vice-president. He said
that, no plan having been made by
another state to nominate Senator
Lodge for vice-president, it was the
duty of Oregon to place Mr. Lodge's
name before the convention. He
moved that Judge Carey be author
ized to nominate the Massachusetts

on the grounds that his voice was
not in trim for such a stupenduous
On suggestion from Judge Carey
that the matter of nominating Sen

. Veterans Are Doorkeepers.
National Committeeman Williams
announced that Oregon's three door
keeper appointments had gone to ex
service men, the appointees being Pan
J. Malarkey Jr., Edgar B. Piper Jr.,
and Lynn E. Coovert, all of Portland.
Mr. Coovert, it was learned, will not
be here, consequently the vacancy
will stand until some ex-service man
from Oregon appears on the scene.
Mr. Williams announced that it ap
peared possible to apportion certain
days among different guests to give
every Oregon - visitor in the "city an
opportunity to see the convention.
The Oregon national committeeman
has 58 guest tickets and he called
on delegates this afternoon to notify
him of the presence of any Oregon
residents in the city in order that
provision may be made for their -attendance
at the convention. Of the
alternates on the temporary roll, it
was disclosed this afternoon that
only four are present, Sanfield Mac
donald and William I. Harrison, dele-jgates-at-large,
and Dr. Joel Booth
and M. Z. Donnell, district delegates.
An effort will be madei however, to
fill all vacancies.
FATHER YOUTH'S ACCUSER
ALLEGED SLAYER DELIVERED
Alaska Mar. "Mushes" 450 Miles
to Bring Factor In Recent
Tragedy to Justice.
SEATTLE, Wash., June 6. (Spe
cial.) Jimmy Maguire, son of James
H. Maguire. northwest Alaska super
intendent of the United States bureau
of education, alleged slayer of Rev
A. T. Hoare in a lonely Episcopal mis
sion at Point Hope in April, has ar
rived at Nome in custody of his father
and a United States deputy marshal
after "mushing" 450 miles over north
ern ice and snow from the scene of
the tragedy, according to advice re
ceived here today.
Trial of the youth, who is said to
be demented from long isolation in
the north, will be set within the next
few days. Then the details of the
mission tragedy and events which led
up to the shooting will become known.
Broken in spirit and visibly de
pressed over the tragedy, Mrs. Ma
guire, mother of Jimmic, sailed Friday
on the steamship Victoria on its first
trip of the 1920 season into Nome.
Mrs. Maguire, who was in Los Angeles
when news of the murder was flashed
from the Alaska radio stations, left
immediately for Seattle, but was com
pelled to wait here several weeks un
til the first sailing to Nome to see
her son. Mrs. Maguire scorns the
reports that her son is demented.
Although the slaying of Rev. Mr.
Hoare at Point Hope, the northern
most mission of Alaska and inside
the arctic circle, occurred on April
27, news of the tragedy was not
known until early in May. Since then
only meager advices have reached
here, but it is known that the shoot
ing occurred after Mr. Hoare returned
from a long trip by dog sled to
Point Barrow. Jimmie Maguire, who
was assistant to Mr. Hoare and had
charge of the Point Hope, mission
while the latter was absent, shot the
minister a few minutes after his re
turn from Point Barrow.
The boy's father was the first white
man to reach the scene, and he placed
his son under arrest. The father,
with son In custody, then mushed the
trail for six days to Candle, where the
son was turned over to a united
States marshal. After accompanying
the marshal and prisoner to Nome, the
father mushed back over the snow to
his work of supervising Eskimo
schools. Rev. Mr. Hoare's body was
buried near the Point Hope mission.

companies that there is a shortage of
gasoline, a system of gasoline ration

oil companies, and a great injury Is
being done to all business in the
Pacific coast states. However, evi

that the present propaganda will be
followed byan increase in price.
"We appeal to' you to have insti
tuted an Investigation' or hearing In
California, to the end that full pub
licity may be given to the facts and
justice be assured to all.

has characterized the Ladd & Tilton Bank ever since its organization sixty
one years ago. As a small bank, in a pioneer community which had the bar
rier of the Rockies between it and the East, it met many difficulties, had
serious problems to solve.
That very fact made it peculiarly one with community life; caused
officers 'and directors to realize keenly that the interests of the
Ladd & Tilton Bank and those of its customers must be identical ; that
as their business expanded, so must the facilities of the bank.
Accordingly, as rapidly as was consistent with good banking policies,
new departments have been added, space has been increased, and
everything that would facilitate the handling of business quickly and
satisfactorily has been adopted.
Deservedly has the Ladd & Tilton Bank gained a reputation for
coupling the experience brought by age, with the pulsating strength
engendered by keeping in close touch with modern methods old in
experience young in spirit, it stands as the ideal banking institution.
The Ladd & Tilton Bank, on this, its sixty-first anniversary, solicits
your patronage on the basis of efficient banking service. Whether you
desire to open a savings, checking or commercial account; are consid
ering broadening out into foreign trade channels, or wish investment
advice, its officials will welcome an interview.
