George E. Saunders Quoted
on Rogue River Bonds.
MEDFORD CASE GOES- ON
Superintendent FljTin of Public
Corporation Can't See Value of
$13,000,000 in Ilellgate.
MEDFORD, Or., Sept. 30. (Special.)
Analysis of a statement issued by
George E. Saunders, president of the
Rouge River public Service corpor
ation, setting forth the development
possibilities of various power, irri
gation, real estate and Industrial
projects in southern Oregon, in some
what glowing terms, for the benefit
of prospective bond buyers, occupied
much of the attention today at the
Federal Trade commission hearing
into the charge that the Utah-Idaho
Sugar company is a combination in
restraint of trade.
The witness was A. A. Flynn, su
perintendent of the Rogue River pub
lic corporation, who was questioned
by the defense counsel at great
length. Judge Stroup, counsel for the
sugar company, read a paragraph
from the Saunders circular, placing
the valuation of the Hellgate canyon
power prospects at $13,000,000.
Laughter Causes Remarks.
Mr. Flynn became convulsed with
laughter, which resulted in 4 Assist
ant Government Prosecutor Sane re
questing Judge Dunham to "take note
of the facetiousness of the witness."
The spectators also giggled and
were included in the request. This
incident precipitated a rather heated
tilt between counsel for the govern
ment and the defense, the latter re
marking "that it was enough to make
anybody laugh" and that it was "by
no means sacrilegious."
To further queries Mr. Flynn testi
fied that he knew of nothing to cause
the Hellgate canyon rights to be
Surplus Put at $23,000,000.
The "corporate surplus" when all
undertakings were in full orperation
was placed in the statement at $23.

either the witnesses or spectators, as
did the Hellgate canyon project val

The last witness of the day was
Paul Klrker of Toppenish, Wash., who

mission covering the business of the

ending June 30, 1915. Alexander Nib

MAN MARRIES WITNESS
State Deprived of Testimony in
Iiiquor Case by Marriage.
At the preliminary hearing yester
day af ternoon"of William Mann, ar
rested Tuesday on a charge of operat
ing a still, it developed that Mann on
Wednesday had married the chief
witness against him, Rertha Fahey, In
whose house at 5'J5 East Alder street,
the still was found.
The still, with a large quantity of
mash and nearly 50 gallons of moon
shine, was located in the attic of the
house and Bertha Fahey, now Mrs.
Mann, was arrested, as the only oc
cupant of the residence at the time.
iiince a woman cannot testify
against her husband, Mrs. Mann's tes
timony cannot now be used.
Mann admitted his guilt and said he
alone had been responsible for the
moonshining operations. The com
plaint against Mrs. Mann was dis
missed and Mann was bound over "to
the grand jury under $500 bond.

Both are graduates of the Universal

duced more stars of the first magni
tude, than can be claimed by all the
other motion-picture companies com

from Mary Pickford down, made their
early appearance in Universal films,
which continues to develop high-class
talent each year.
Leonard Clnpham, who is a Ken

fine physique, was introduced to the
Universal studios by his schoolmate,
J. Warren Kerrigan, when he was

Man," then appeared in the leading
role in "Her Five Foot Highness,"
opposite Edith Roberts, and now he
is considered ripe for featured parts.
Virginia Faire is a 16-year-old miss
who halls from New York and who
last fall won the fame and fortune
contest conducted by a leading motion
picture magazine. Her beauty and
dramatic ability won the highest
praise from the judges, composed of
leading screen stars, writers, critics
and publishers. Carl Laemmle, pres
ident of Universal placed Miss Faire
under contract and for the past nine
months she has been given a course
of training which has developed all
her beauty and talent. "Under

Star only until Tuesday midnight. On

stage setting as she had during the
first part of the week, but when "The
Jack Knife Man" came on she
changed her. vocal selections. Many
Oregonians are finding lb Miss Lid

SMOOTH LIPFREES MAN
Sleuths Baffled When Prisoner Ap

Shavine of a moustache sometimes
works wonders in changing: a man's
appearance. The case against three
men, arrested two mon t ha ago for
soiling1 "fcoft drinks" which contained
6.2 per cent alcohol, yesterday in
municipa 1 court was dismissed upon
failure of two internal revenue offi

After the dismissal Pete Christoff

between the arrest and trial.
Chamberlain, Stan field, According
to Text, Should Be Opposed Be
cause of League Stand.
Dr. J. S. Hardy, secretary of the
Hayes for Senator club, has prepared
a statement showing why Thomas A'.
Hayes has become an independent
candidate for .United States senator.
The burden of the statement is that
Mr. Hayes is for the league of nations
just as President Wilson wants it.
whereas Senator Chamberlain voted
for the Lodge reservations and R. N.
Stan field, republican candidate for
senator. Wants to scrap the document.
Dr. Hardy's announcement follows:
Since a lare majority of the elec
torate of Oregon favorable to the rati
fication of the peace treaty and covenant
to prevent war, as agreed upon at V'er- 1
sailles, had no one of choice on the bailot
for UniLed States senator, a movement
was inaugurated to place the name of
Thomas A. Hayes on the ballot by peti
tion aa independent candidate.
Our candidate is a progressive, of dem
ocratic faith and believes in the tenets
of Jefferson, Lincoln and Wood row Wilson.
He is opposed to compulsory military
trnining and great armament - and known
that it will be unnecessary when we haVe
ratified the Versailles treaty. He beileves
that time and money spent irt those pur
suits would be better employed in produc
ing things that the world needs.
Instead of makinu people burden-bearers
of non-essentials of civilization, our
candidate believes in collective bargaining
and that labor in manual or mental fields
is not a commodity for sale or trade and
that he who works is worthy of his hire.
He believes In free speech and free press
and in free patriotic assembly.
Mr. Hayee, by training, observation
and study, understands the needs of Ore
gon and Its people and can gain recogni
tion in the halls of congress.
Finally, the independent candidate
stands four square on the Versailles agree
ment and w hole-h Parted ly supports t he
covenant to prevent future wars and, when
elected, will at iirst opportunity vote for
its ratification. He is bolstered in this
opinion and position by the facts that
the eight other nations, our allies in the
war, ratified the treaty on presentation
to their governments promptly, amid the
glad acclaim of the populace and the
further fact that up to now 41 countries
have obtained membership in the league
with Germany and Austria on probation,
having asked admission when signing the
treaty. Altogether embracing more than
three-fourths of the civilized population
of the globe, leaving outside of the league,
revolutionary Russia, the terrible Turk,
Mexico and our own country, which a
recreant senate has labeled a slacker and
quitter, a stain upon our nation's es
cutcheon that can only be removed by the
enlightened electorate in November.
Mr. Hayes' contestants are George E.
Chamberlain, who by his vote helped to
engraft upon the peace pact all of the
silly and nullifying Lodg reservations
and amendments; including article 10,
which ex-President Taft so highly ex
tolled In his auditorium speech here more
than a year ago, because it had teeth In
it, and that President Wilson says is the
heart thereof. Another choice is R. A.
btanfield, republican candidate for sena
tor, who has taken one of the ten po
sitions of the republican candidate for
the presidency on the league of nations
and is in favor of scrapping the whole
Under these political conditions, pecu
liar to Oregon, the candidacy of Mr. Hayes
will appeal to all those who believe that
the covenant will help -to promote stable
peace. They will share in his sincerity
and view with much concern the tragi
cal suffering, death and despair from
lack of food and raiment for innocent chil
dren and peoples and view with alarm the
portentous clouds rising on all horizons of
Our candidate ( knows that the league
contains nothing that endangers our gov
ernment, its sovereignty or its constitution
and that all such claim is unadulterated
camouflage to bolster wrongs and to dis
guise intrigue and for partisan and per
sonal expediency ana tor tne lurther pur
pose of dragging from mountain tops of
Information and world honor a man far
above them by the cores of envy and
hate and betrayal, regardleae of human
suftering and death in the world. In this
knowledge, Mr. Hayes is sustained and
buttressed by the American Bar association,
William Howard Taft, George W. Wicker
stia.ui, ex-attorney-general appointed by
Taft; Professor Lowell, Woodrow Wilson
and other millions of Intelligent uconle.
It the treachery of the opposers ot the
league for peace is not vlaloned now, the
future historians win place their names
on the scroll of dishonor in letters large
enough that he who runs may read, that
37 round robins, 13 irreconctlables and
four or five apostate democratic senator
combined in their perfidy to discredit s
great president in the eyes ot the world
and through their actions dishonored our
nation, betrayed our allien and broke faith
with our soldier dead. The printed . nasi
will say that when our government was
naked for succor and for bread for the
dying. the misrepresentatives of our
country gave them a stone instead and
left a bleeding world on fire.
