HINDU FEARS KNIFE
Prefers Death to Amputation
of Shattered Leg.
NO FAITH IN SURGERY
Ilnrnam Singh in Dangerous Condi
tion Makes Statement That the
Woodcutters, N'ot Milllianris,
Did Shooting at Boring.
Rather than submit to tlie order of
lr. C. C McCornaik and permit the
surgeons to amputate his shattered leg,
Harnam Singh, a Hindu who was set
upon and shot by two woodchoppers
near Boring Thursday night, declares
he will die, If necessary. With but

try, and without knowledge of modern
surgery, Singh says he prefers death
to the loss of the limb, anil thus far no
amount of persuasion has availed to
change his mind. He has but a faint
hope of recovery, if he holds out and
refuses to permit the amputation.
Through M. Ham, a Hindu, -who was
educated in the. British school at
Lahore and who has been in America
two years, a statement was yesterday
secured from the wounded man and
his brother as to the shooting of Har
nam Singh In a shack at the Jarl &
l'agh Bros.- mill, near Boring. The
shots were fired, Singh declares, by two
woodchoppers. and not by white men
.who were working at the lumber mill,
as was at first thought.
"When the shooting began, Sporan
and Harnam Singh were asleep In their
beds," said Mr. Ram, the interpreter.
"They invoke and saw plainly two
white men. both armed with guns.
Neither wore a mask and their faces
were plainly seen by the Singh broth
ers, who can identify the men If they
are caught. The men were recognized
as woodchoppers who had been at
work near the mill. They fired 17
shots Into the cabin, then ran away."
After their assailants fled into the
darkness of the night. Sporan Singh
called in the Pagh brothers, who noti
fied the authorities. The wounded

CREDIT TO PACIFIC COAST
November Pacific Monthly Kxcellent
In the magazine world any one starting
from the Pacific Coast must go over two
thirds the way across the United States
to Chicago before he finds an equal to
tho Pacific Monthly published in Portland;
and he must Journey to New York City
itself, the home of the greatest maga
zines in the world, before he finds a su
perior. In size, quality of paper,- press work
and general physical features, the No
vember Pacific Monthly holds its own
with any magazine published.
Magazine Illustrating, like advertising
was 20 years ago. Is In its Infancy, but in
this all-Important quality the Pacific
Monthly, at least In the November issue,
stands abreast of McClure's Everybody's,
Success and Munsey's. and is exceeded
only by those publications that make a
specialty of pictures. The November
front cover, by Lute Pease, is also the
equal of those of the standard weeklies
and monthlies. Mr. Pease's Illustrations
for the new serial story, "The Last Stand
of the Argonauts," by John Fleming
Wilson, a well-known and able Portland
writer, has seldom been equaled, and but
few times exceeded, in the history of the
American magazines. Good illustrations
are not always pictures, and good pictures
are by no means thereby adequate illus
trations: but the pejicll art by Lute Pease
are both pictures' good In their own right
and drawings that really illustrate the
reading matter, a too rare, accomplish
ment in magazine publishing. It can
truthfully be said of the present number
of the Pacific Monthly that this magazine
is aa well Illustrated from cover to cover
as any publication outside those devoted
to- art productions.
In the quality of reading matter -in the
November number the Pacific Monthly
stands in a high class. Excepting only
such serials as those by Kipling or Conan
Doyle, no magazine today Is running a
continued story that promises better than
