Government Officials on
the Trail. ;
BIG DEAL IS UNCOVERED
Conspiracy to Acquire300,000
Acres Is Investigated.
$500,000 PROFITS PLANNED
It Is Alleged That Senator Mitchell,
BInger Hermann and F. P. "
Mays Were Partle3 to
the Scheme. .,
Will Senator Mitchell have to face an
other indictment for fraud against the
Government? It is rumored, and the ru
mor seems to have firm foundation, that
he will, and that perhaps it will be not
one additional indictment, but twotwh!ch
will yet come out of the hands of the
Federal grand Jury.
Mention has been made of thc Blue
Mountain Reserve and the conspiracy to
defraud the Government out of lands sit
uated In Its confines, and with this con
spiracy the names of Senator Mitchell and
Representatives Williamson and Her
mann havo been linked.
But it is another deal which is now
claiming the attention of those, who are
supposed to know something o what
will happen, and this time it is a larger
one than has yet been mentioned, more
far-reaching and all-embracing. In Its
conception it contemplated the acquisition
of more than 2CO.000 acres of land situated
In all parts of the state where the finest
timber was to be found. It meant, if 1
carried to completion, the accumulation
of more than $300,000 by those who engi
neered the scheme.
In this deal, it is alleged. Senator
Mitchell, BInger Hermann, F. P. Mays
and others yet to be named were to. and
did. take a prominent part. It was car
ried through partially and large sums
were realized from the transaction and
still large amounts are yet due. unless
stopped In transit by the uncovering of
It Is said that this conspiracy is along
similar lines with those already brought
to light. It flourished In the. vicinity of
Roseburg. in Southwestern Oregon,
through Middle Oregon and to the east.
And It Is also supposed thc knowledge
that this matter is being probed by the
Government officials has a great deal to
do with the homecoming of Oregon's
senior Senator at this time. It is called
to mind that Senator Mitchell was ap
prised of a telegram of the indictment
impending In the first Instance, and It Is
said that a similar circumstance has in
tlon of the coming indictment on this now
conspiracy charge has been sent to Seit-
! ator Mitchell and that he is coming hero
to see what can be done in that direction

mediate trial between now and April 10.
the date set for the opening of tho Spring;
In relation to the story that the Senator
would return to demand the trial llr.
Heney has written the following state
ment explaining his. attitude on the ques
tion: Portland. Jan. 21. iTo the FVHtor.j Ye3ter
dny'o OreKiinlan contains a tiatrment from
Washington to the effect that Senator Mitchell
will retunj here to Insist upon-an early trial
because information has reached him that
the. prosecution 1 la no hurry to hrlns hint to
trial, and that an official very closely- connect
ed with the prosecution of the land-fram
cases Is raid to have advised friend's In thl.
city that Senator Mitchell would not he
brought to trial for at lat a year. If anr
person made such a statement. It Is utterlr
rrlthout foundation. The prosecution refrained
from causing the arrest of either Senator illtcbr
ell or Congressman Hermann becauas both of
them expressed anxiety to reach Washington,
to attend to public business. As the next,
term of court will commence on the 10th da t
of April. 1905, and aa neither Senator Mitchell
cot Congressman Hermann Indicated any de
sire to return hero for trial prior to the next
termxof court. Judge Bellinger discharged tho
Jurors In attendance upon this term of courts,
on January 19. The newspapers had pre
Tlcvs'jr announced that Senator Mitchell might
take his seat, and that Congressman Hermann
i.ad already taken his seat. As prosecuting
officer. I concluded to await the adjournment
of - Congress before pressing their cases fot
trial. I am ready and more than willing to
lve.each of these gentlemen a speedy trial,
and the prosecution will urge the trial of
their eases at thc earlist day the court can
take them up In the next term, commenctn-c
Apih 10, 1SW5. and no postponement what
ever will be asked for by the Governments I
am more anxious to complete the trial of these
aets and return to my own private business
than Senator Mitchell, or any other defendant
can possibly be to obtain a trial.

that the decision was not reached until
after-the court had dismissed the jurymen

that it would be necessary now to have a

officers of the Government, the grand jury
