Youth Confesses to Accident That
Injured Crutch and Limb.
CHEHALIS. Wash.. Sept 2. (Special.)
Last Sunday afternoon, Clifford Picket,
Clackamas Farmer Is, Per
haps, Fatally Injured..
Humphrey Jones, Farmer, Picked
T3p Unconscious His Daughter
and a Girl Friend Have
Broken Bones.

OREGON CITY, Or.,. Sept. 2. (Spe
olal.) Humphrey Jones, a prominent
farmer of Carus, this county, -was per
haps fatally Injured this morning In
attempting to drive across the South
ern Pacific Railroad track in this city
in front of an approaching overland
train. The other occupants of the
wagon were Miss Kate Jones, a daugh
ter of the farmer and Miss Edna Irish,
a neighbor. Jones was picked up in
nn unconscious state and taken to
Portland, where his condition Is re
ported alarming.
Mr. Jones and companions "were on
the way to this city and were descend
ing Singer Hill, at the base of which
the roadway crosses the railroad track.
The second section of the northbound
California overland was Just pulling
out of the depot yards as the team
noarod the foot of the hill. Mr. Jones,
whose sight and hearing are impaired
because of his advanced age, he being
past 60, neither saw nor heard the ap
proaching train, and before the daugh
ter, who observed the danger, could di
vert the team from its course, the
wagon was on the track, when the col
lision followed.
By tightly applying the airbrakes,
the momentum of the train was
checked sufnclentlv by the enelneer to
prevent what would have certainly re-.
suited in the Instantaneous death of
the three occupants of the vehicle. As
It was, they were thrown violently
from the rig which was entirely demol
ished, one of the horses being so badly
injured that it had to be shot. Miss
Jones sustained the fracture of a leg
and Miss Irish escaped with a broken
cheek bone.
The scene of the accident Is a dan
gerous one and the wonder is that
more accidents do not becur, since the
railroad company has provided no pro
tection, not even stationing a flagman
at the dangerous point.
William E. Curtis Pays Tribute to
Southern Oregon Freak of Nature.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or.. Sept. 2. (Spe

agent of the Southe'rn Paclflc, and daugh
tor. atiss Marie Fee, of San Francisco, and
A. L. Craig, general passenger agent pf
the O. R. & N. a. Portland. Mr. Curtis
was very much Impressed with this part
of Oregon. Speaking of his trip he said:
"The drive over from the railroad was
delightful, and the forests were as fln
as I have ever seen. You have a beauti
ful lot of timber around you. The water
supply of this country surpasses any I
have ever seen.
"It seems to be a god farming country
here; the soil Is exceedingly rich, and
wherever the water is you can see what
can be done with It if it was irrigated.
"We are all going to help get an appro
priation through Congress to improve
Crater Lake National Park. Crater Lako
has not been very much advertised, and
Congress is entirely ignorant of the at
traction of this beautiful and wonderful
"When you get a railroad in here, we
expect you to improve your roads and
get ready to -accommodate tourists. As
soon as you provide easy access to and
suitable accommodations at Crater Lake,
crowds of tourists will visit It every
Summer. Next to the Grand Canyon of
the Colorado and the Ycsemlte. I think
Crater Lake has the grandest scenerj' In
Besides Mr. and Mrs. Curtis and Messrs.
Fee and Craig were: James Horsburgh,
Jr., assistant general passenger agent of
the Southern Paclflc; W. E. Travis, of
Portland; F. D. Judah and G. Hassel, of
San Francisco, and E. D. Burrows, of

TACOMA, Wash., Sept. 2. (Special.)
Judgment for $100 was given in the
Superior Court to the Pioneer Bindery
& Printing Company against the In
vestors Mutual Reserve Company, .a
"get-rlch-qulck" concern.
Ellis & Fletcher, attorneys for the
printing company, will ask the court
to appoint a receiver for the company.
Attorney J. W. Quick, representing
"Young Pole, who took out a bond in
the company, will Join forces with El
lis and Fletcher In an endeavor to re
cover money for his client from the
men behind the Investors Mutual Re
serve Company. Thaddeus Hill, presi
dent of the company, said today that
the reason Poole couldn't get his money
was because the bond was not due.
"The money is not in the treasury
to pay him, but will be by the time his
bond is duo," he said, "and the reason
there is no money in the treasury is
because we pay it out for the matured
bonds as fast as they come in."

confessed that he accidentally discharged
the gun he carried and It was the bullet
from this that entered Picket's leg.

Late Captaia. of the Goard Kees Doe
Not Get Expected
Soft Berth.
OLYMPIA. Wash., Sept. (Special.)
A dispatch sent out from Walla Wal
la yesterday that a soft berth had been
provided by Warden Kees for C B.
WopJ, the captain of the guard at the
penitentiary, who was ordered dis
missed iby the Governor, by the ap
pointment of Deputy Assessor E. G.
Rourkc, traveling guard, was proved
inaccurate by the Board of Control to,
day, who, after a consultation with the
Governor, directed the appointment of
A. B. Estabrook, of Belllngham, trav
eling guard, to succeed J. D. Smith,
who gets Wood's place.
According to Walla Walla reports
Wood was to get Rourke'a place. The
statement emanates from the executive
department that there is no clash of
authority, however, and that Kees fully
understands that Estabrook Is to have
Smith's place. Estabrook Is an old
friend of the Governor and was Sheriff
two terms of Whatcom County when
the Governor was Prosecuting Attor
ney. He was given a position as guard
at the penitentiary early -in the year,
but did not like the work and resigned
after a few days.
The law gives the warden the ap
pointive power of his subordinates, but
as the warden is appointed by the
Board of Control and the Board of Con
trol Is appointed by the Governor, the
desires of the executive as to appoint
ments are weightier than those of the

Hundreds of Settlers on New
Irrigation Projects.
Those Proposed by tho Land Compa
nies Were Rejected Sonic Time
Since by State Board for
Various Reasons.
8AL.EM, Or.. Sept. 2. (SpeciaL) The
adoption of rules and regulations gov
erning the distribution of "water to
settlers by Irrigation companies who
have reclaimed land under the Carey
act, is one of the Important duties tho
State Land Board must soon perform.
Two large areas of arid land in tho
Deschutes country, in Crook County,
have been put under Irrigation and next
Spring hundred of settlers will begin
using water from tho Irrigation sys
tems. As yet no rules have been adopted,
though the State Land Board has had
the matter under consideration once or
twice in an Informal way. The state
law accepting the terms of the Carey
act, provides that the reclamation com
pany shall adopt rules, with the ap
proval of the board, which virtually
means that tho rules must be adopted
by the beard also.
The Three Sisters Irrigation Com
pany, now owned by the Columbia
Southern Irrigation Company, submit
ted a set of rules more than a year
ago but, the board rejected them, on
the ground that some of the regula
tions were unreasonable, unfair to the
settler and not within the Intent of the
reclamation laws. One of the most ob
jectionable rules was that requiring
payment of annual water rates In ad
vance, with the privilege of shutting
off the water if the rate be not so paid.
This the board thought unreasonable
because the settler gets his money
when he sells his crop and It; Is most
convenient for him to pay at that time.
Another objectionable provision was
that which gave the company the
double remedy of shutting- off the
water and bringing suit to foreclose
tho lien for the amount due. with at
torneys fees. The board was of the
opinion that If the irrigation company
has a lien on the land this is security
enongh and there should be no au
thority to snut oft the water supply In
case the company and the settler dis
agreed concerning the amount due or
the company had not been paid all It
claimed. The provision regarding- the
payment of an attorney feo was also
thought unreasonable.
There were provisions in the pro
posed rules fixing a maximum amount
of water to which the settler should
.be entitled and authorizing the com
pany to apportion the water pro rata
In caso there should be a shortage.
Concerning these provisions the board
was in some doubt and desired further
Information before giving- the rule its
approval. The irrigation company has
not submitted other proposed rules and
the whole matter remains Jn abeyance.
The state now has a State Engineer
who will Investigate subjects of this
kind and advise the board. Whether
the companies will concede tho right of
tli. boatfl to JTtCt lLBJHtlrfjEtQrX xulux
remains to bo seen. It is contended by
some who have read the law that since
the companies are. given power to adopt
rules with the approval of the board,
the beard has no power to adopt any
rules except those that may be pro
posed by the companies.
