To the many questions that will be sub
mitted to the voters of Lake fount y,
alonr with the rest of Oregon, under the
Initiative and referendum provision of the
constitution of Oregon at the comiirs: elec
tion in June, may be added the question
of removing the county seat from Lake
view to Paisley. For many weeks the
people of the northern end of the county
have been endeavoring to secure signa
tures sufficient to have- the- question of
removal placed on the ballot for the June
eieetlon, and now it Is reported . that their
effort s have been FueceasfuJ. and that
.mh a ttitlon will be presented to the
County Court at Its May term. While
there is little probability of such an effort
ending In success, the contest therefor
w'H precipitate a spirited fight.
The county is po large in area that it
can he a tjuestion of b.it a few yeara
until the county will be divided. The log
ical place for division is just north of
Paisley, the proposed location of the new
county seat, and after divison Paisley
would be so close to the nor:h line of the
county that a movement to reTocate would
attain start. Also, the bulk of the popula
tion of the county is tributary to Lake
view at the present time, and these facts
will insure the retention of the county
seat where It is for the present.
TespJte the talk of moving the county
seat to Paisley, work on the new Court
house is .progressing rapidly at ?Akeview.

and much -needed home for the county

foundation of heavy granite rock from
the near-oy hills Is being placed. The
building will be of brick manufactured
near town, and will be modern In every
detail. When completed. IjRke County's
Courthouse will be one of the finest struc
tures of the kind in Orefion.
The May term of Circuit Court will be
held In a local lodge hall. But it is
planned to have the new Courthouse com
pleted for the term which convenes in

ington. April 25. Although the sundry
civil bill does not carry the full amount
recommended by Army engineers for
either the mouth of the Columbia or the
Celllo Canal, It appears from the commit
tee hearings that the Chief of Engineers
stated that the amounts actually carried
in the bill will be ample to continue both
projects up to March 4. 1909. when the
next sundry civil bill will be passed and
new appropriations will become avail
able. As r matter of fact, while the
present estimates for the mouth of the
river state that $1,700,000 will complete
the jetty. It is well known in engineering
circles that $.100. 00 to $500.0110 n-ore will
be necessary because of deterioration of
part of the worK heretofore (lon result
ing from delays. Pcfore the next bill is
reported, this final estimate will be sub
mitted and sufficient money to complete
the Jetty will be appropriated next year.
The sundry civil bill carries $1.4.r.o.
000 for continuing improvements at the
mouth of the Columbia River, and
$:fii.00i for continuing work on the
Celrlo canal. The estimate for the
former was $1 70 i.OOO, and for the lat

PFATTt.K. Wash.. April 25.-(Speei:il.)
.Mis. Mary Vinnette was convicted in
tire S-rperior Court totiny of conspiracy
to defraud the Seattle Electric Company
out of $5n0u. The story of the case i? a
reinarkai.le one. Carl Windoll. a boy 13
years old. was slightly injured In a street
tur collision last November. The boy's
parents brought suit against the company
The boy's mind, it was alleged, had been
affected as a result of the collision. A
commission was anpoiritcd by the court,
which subjected the youngster to the
most severe tests, pins were thurst Into
liis body and under his tingcr nails, yet
lie made no outcry and gave no evidence
that he felt the' pain.
A second hearing was held and then
the boy. under cross-examination, told
that .Mrs. Vinnette, a neighbor, had
coached him to sham insanity. He again
allowed pins to be thrust under his nails
to show that he could sham insensibility
Mrs. Vinnette was tried and the jury
disagreed. The second trial today re
sulted in a verdict of guilty. There has
been no evidence that the boy s patents
were concerned In the attempted fraud.
