Suit Instituted at Pendleton
Under New Irrigation Law.
STATE IS MADE A PARTY
Plaintiffs Are Farmers and Fruit-
raisers on Oregon Border VTho
Use the Flow of the Little
TTalla Walla River.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Aug:. B.
fSneeial.) The flrst suit under the new
Irrigation law of the State of Oregon
was today filed in the Circuit Court of
Umatilla Counts', and In the matter of
Interests and people involved Is prob
nhiv thft lareest suit ever filed In a
court in the state. The case Is brought
for the purpose of settling the disputed
water rights along the Little Walla
Walla River, and the plaintiffs are
farmers and frultralsers living near
the "Washington state line, who use
water for Irrigation purposes out of
the Little Walla Walla. The defend
ants number 400 individuals, six irri
gation companies, the town of Milton
and the State of Oregon.
The necessity of bringing the suit
has grown out of the fact that the
country has settled up in a wonderful
degree, and the demand for water has
greatly Increased In the last few years.
The Peacock Mill Company, of Milton,
last Summer filed a suit against the
town of Milton and about 200 other
defendants, but since then and during
the present Irrigating season many
disputes have arisen between the set
tlers below the mill and above the
lands of the plaintiffs in this suit,
which is the direct cause of this pro
ceeding being' Instituted. It was de
cided that it was better to settle the
rights of all, and thereby prevent end
less litigation In the future.
The object in making the state a
party to the suit Is for the purpose of
settling the rights of every user of
water along the stream, and also to
procure the services of the State Engi
neer for the purpose of making hydro
graphic maps and gathering the neces
sary data for the proper determination
of the conflicting Interests. He will
measure all of the stream, the amount
of water flowing in the channel and
the capacity of all the ditches which
take water from the stream. He must
report on the character of the lands,
amount of water required for different
kinds of lands, and furnish a plat of
the entire stream system. Including an
outline of all the various ownerships
of lands using water therefrom.
It is expected that this will enable
the court more accurately to adjust the
rights of all the parties and forever
settle the water question of that sec
tion. Under the new law passed at the
last session of the Legislature, which
provides for the appointment of a State
Engineer, the latter is required to
make hydrographlc surveys of all the
streams In the state, beginning with
those most In" use for irrigation pur
poses, and file plats and data in his of
fice for future reference. The state is
given control of all the surplus waters
In the state, and the law provides that
when the state Is made a party to a
water suit the court shall call in the i
State Engineer, who shall at once pro
ceed to make a hydrographlc survey
and gather all the available data'Ho V
used in the consideration 'and trial -ijf
the suit, and such information shali be
kept on file in the office of the EnylMeer
lor future use. ;
The law further provides that apon
the adjudication of the rieht to the
use of the water of a streax. cystem, a
certified copy of the decreo hall be
prepared by the clerk of the court
without charge, and filed in the office of
the State Engineer. Such decree shall
in every case declare as to the water
right adjudged to each pftrty. whether
riparian or by appropriation, the' extent,
the priority, amount, purpose, place of
use, ana as to water used for irrlga
uon, tne specific tracts of land to
which it shall be appurtenant, together
witn such other conditions as may be
necessary to define the right and its
different manner and to a greater extent
than the property of residents of the
state of Oregon, and taxes one class of
stock and not another. Reser prays for
a restraining order preventing Stock In
spector Goff from collecting the tax.
WANTS HIS WIFE ARRESTED
Xorth Yakima Man Writes -a Letter
to Seattle Detectives.
SEATTLE, Wash.. Aug. 5. (Special.
John H. Bruff. a lawj'er at North Ya

Florence Bruff. It is not likely that
any action can be taken in the caso.
Mrs. Bruff 1b the young woman who
suddenly left Seattle the same day that
Lester Richardson, the many-times-
over burglar was arrested for a series
of hotel burglaries. Mrs. Bruff had In
her possession a fine diamond ring
stolen by Richardson and given to her.
Fearing that she would be Involved in
the trouble she left Seattle and went to
her home In North Yakima.
The police have no charge against
the young woman although they made
an effort to arrest her to force her to
return the ring that was stolen. When
Bruff, the lawj'er, heard that his wife
was back In town he wrote to the Seat
tie police offering the reward for her
arrest and conviction.
Bruff cays Jn his letter that he was
married to the girl a year ago and
Hvd with her but one day. Since that
time he intimates that her conduct has
been exceedingly bad. He docs not say
why he Is anxious to have her arrested
but plainly indicates that it is revenge
for an alleged wrong done by her to
Richardson is still In the City JalL

LONG FIGHT AGAINST SALOONS
Head of Washington League Plans
Out His Campaign.
SEATTLE. Wash.. Aucr. 5 rsneeial.t
Ernest H. Cherington. the new super-J
mtendent of the Anti-Saloon League of
Washington, will immediately Inaugu
rate a. campaign to eniorce the Sunday
closing laws against the saloons, com
pel them to close up during restricted
hours anl to obey other provisions of
the code that have been dead letters
since their enactment. This is the an
nounced policy of the successor to J. C.
Thomas, who has Just come to Seattle
to make this his headquarters.
"It may take ten years to carry out
our plan, but we will win in time." de
clares Mr. Cherington. "So long as the
saloon is recognized we remember Its
legal right to exist and will fight to
have present laws enforced. But we are
going to carry our fight into the Legis
lature and ask for new legislation.
"We will apply for the Ohio system
of local option. This permits, In the first
place, townships to vote upon the li
censing of saloons. Then municipalities
are granted local option and another
right of voting-to exclude saloons ex
tends to the residence districts. Under
the township act three-fourths of the
Ohio townships were cleared of sa
loons; between 900 and 1000 saloons
were driven out of 21S towns and 55ex
purgated from residence districts."
SUTT AGAINST TRAMP SHEEP
Walla Walla County Owners Bring
Action at La Grande.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., Aug. 5. Rep
resenting about 25 owners of sheep In
Walla Walla County, William P. Reser
today commenced suit at La Grande, Or.,
to test the migratory sheep law passed by
the last Legislature of Oregon. Under
the law sheep taken into Oregon during
' the Summer and Fall for grazing are sub
ject to a tax, and 20 cents per head la
now being demanded by the Sheep In
spector. As the owners of the sheep are
compelled to pay a tax on their sheep in
the state of Washington, they claim that
the tax sought to be collected In Union
Couny is double taxation. About two
months ago a similar suit was Instituted
In the Circuit Court at Pendleton to re
strain the Stock Inspector from collecting
the 20-cent tax. W. P. Reser was tho
complainant "jn that suit also. At the
present time Walla Walla sheepmen are
pasturing about 50,000 head on the range
In Union County.
The grounds for the action, according to
the complaint prepared In Walla Walla,
is that the law is unconstitutional because
the tax is not uniform, and is not a tax
upon valuation, but on numbers; that It
is unlawful interference with Interstate
commerce, and therefore a violation of
the Constitution of the United States; that
it taxes the property of nonresidents in a
Investigation of Blare In Dormitory
Faults tke Guilt on Two
OLTMPIA, Wash., Aug. 5. (SpeclaU
Investigations Into the cause of the
recent fire In the Chehalls Reform
School have fastened a charge of In
cendiarism upon two girls, inmates of
the Institution. The fire started in the
attic of the girls dormitory, which is
a part of the administration building.
The culprits are under the age at which
minors may be sent to the penitentiary.
Inmates of the Reform School are not
sent to tho Institution for a definite
period, and as any legal proceedings
would not aid the cause of Justice, the
punishment was left to the authorities
of the Institution. Corporal punish
ment and solitary confinement, it is
said, were meted out to the girls.
UNEARTH COUNTERFEIT MOLDS
Shlnglers at Mc3HnnviHe Find Them
in an Old Residence.
M'MINNVILLE, Or.. Aug. 5. (Special.)
While the residence of John Newell was
being reshlngled yesterday a complete
outfit for making spurious coin, evidently
left by a former occupant of the house.
The house has been built for CO years.
and In the remembrance of the oldest set
tlers here It has not been reshlngled for
40 years. Since then it has been occupied
by a photographer and a jeweler before
It became a residence. The jeweler, dur
ing his stay here, bore the suspicions of
the entire community, and now .the late
find fastens greater suspicion . upon him.
His whereabouts now are not known.
The outfit, which consists of three 5
molds, dated 1837, 1SI6 and ISoi; one 110
mold, dated 1S47, one $2.50 mold dated
1651, are now In the hands of the Sheriff.
The molds were in a shot sack, which
bears the letters. "H. G. B., McMlnn."
In the pioneer days H. G. Burns owned
a store here, and evidently the bag was
procured from him.
From all appearances, the' molds have
not been used much, and no ono remem
bers ever seeing any counterfeit gold coin
in circulation in this community.

rylng Out the Wishes of
Ills Eccentric Uncle.
SANTA CRUZ, Cal., Aug. 5.-Peter Paul
Hartman, late Socialist candidate for the
Assembly from this county, and grand
nephew of the late George Kohl, an ec
centric miser, Is contesting the distribu
tion of his uncle's estate.
Hartman alleges the estate was left In
trust only to F. A. Hlhn. a land-owner
and millionaire of this county, "with tho
understanding that after all Kohl's debts
and funeral expenses were paid, the bal
ance should go to the Schulehelss and the
Burgomaster of the village of Rechten
bach, Bavaria, in trust for the poor of the
village where Kohl was born. Hartman
claims Hlhn has not fulfilled the terms,
which It Is admitted was left out of tho
will at Hihn's suggestion, on account of
legal technicalities, Hlhn promising faith
fully to execute the old miser's wishes.
Kohl sent for Hlhn while on a sick bed
and had him wrlto(his will, being of the
opinion that no ono but a multi-millionaire
could be trusted to execute the will
of a aoor man. The will was written In
July, 1S0L and Kohl died the following
Previous to the probating of the will,
Hartman declares Hlhn admitted that he
was only a trustee, and alleges he has
taken no steps to wind up the estate or to
send the money to the Burgomaster of
Rechtenbach. The petition asks that Hlhn
be declared a trustee under the will for
the poor of Rechtenbach, and that Hart
man be declared the only hclr-at-law and
that two-thirds of the estate be set apart
to himself and a third to the Rechtenbach
The estate consists of valuable real es
tate In this city and about $3000 cash In
the bank. Hartman worked for his uncle
for some years, during which time he

at him with a rifle, several shots taking
effect In his foot, the result of which has
been to cause him to bo afflicted with
lameness ever since.

FIRE HAW VERY CUMBERSOME
Objection Made to Lapse of Time
After Permit Is Given.
OREGON CITY. Or., Aug. 5.-(SpeciaI.)
While more than a score of permits to
burn slashing have been granted In this
county, there exists much dissatisfaction
here with the now law relating to forest
fires for the reason that the provisions
of the measure are considered cumber
some. The main objection to the law as
It now stands Is that provision requir
ing the making of application on which
the permit is Issued, ten days before the
fire is to be started, the Are not to be
set In case there Is a strong wind blow
ing at the time.
It Is considered a physical Impossibility
for the settler to predict the probable
state of the weather that distance in
