(Special.) The Indictment by a Federal grand Jury of the officers and agents of the Medbury Land & Investment Company, of which C. W. Thompson, of Lewiston, is president, on the charge that they conducted a lottery and used the mails to promote it in the sale of the Med bury. Idaho, townslte, has Involved others in its train. William Dwyer, also of Lewiston, one of the most bitter enemies of Thomp son, has been summoned to appear here before the Federal Court to answer the charge of contempt, and it is believed this will prove the sequel to one of the most bitter political and business feuds known in Idaho. Dwyer must stand trial 'on the charge of contempt September 3. When the case of the Medbury Land A Investment Company was before the special grand Jury In this city, George IV Fletcher, president of the Idaho Na tional Bank, of Boise, was a member of that body. He is the man over whom the feud originally started. Dwyer, who was opposed to Thompson and knew that his actions as president of the company were being Investigated, took occasion to send a telegram to Fletcher in which he said: Dwyer Sends Telegram. "The party that brought the first gumshoe brigade Into Idaho to fur ther his political interests is now be fore a grand Jury-in your city. Ion know the facts." This telegram was delivered to Mr. Fletcher while he was serving on the grand Jury and he called the court's attention to It. asking that he be ex cused. The officers of the company, through the Medbury Land & Investment Com pany, promoted a drawing of town lots at Medbury, in Southern Idaho, and extensively advertised the drawing through the mails. The officers of the company claim they deeded the prop erty outright and that the purchasers later held a drawing and divided the property; that they had nothing to do with the drawing. The hearing on the motion to quaBh Is set for July 29 and sensations are expected In connection with the hear ing, for It Is claimed that political In fluence claimed to exist will be ex posed. Many Are Caught. It is asserted to be a remarkable fact that nearly all of the men prom inent in the political feud which orig inated in Lewiston in 190J have met with reverses. In 1903 George W. Fletcher was a prominent business man of Lewiston. engaged in the hardware business. He was brought out as a candidate for Governor on the Repub lican ticket and secured the indorse ment of Nes Perce County. It was at this time that the Kester-Kettenbach-West faction combined against the Thompson faction. The indorsement secured by Fletcher was taken from him and John T. Morrison was nom inated and elected. Special agents of the Government started Investigation Into the manner In which timber lands had been se cured In the Clearwater country. As a result a grand Jury at Moscow in dicted George H. Kester, William F. Kettenbach, William Dwyer. Clarence W. Robnett and others. Fletcher who sold his hardware business' and came to Boise. He engaged in the banking business and has made J75.000. Kester, Kettenbach and Dwyer were tried at Moscow for timber conspiracy, convicted and appealed to the Circuit Court, where they secured a reversal and were later acquitted. The Government next Instituted a probe against the Lewiston National Bank. Kester and Kettenbach were found guilty on the technical charge of falsifying reports to the control ler of the Currency. They appealed to the Circuit Court of appeals, where their case Is now pending. Robnett, who was indicted with them, pleaded guilty to the Indictments charging the abstraction of about S137.000 of the bank's funds. Thompson Has Opponents. Then the Government turned Its probe to the Medbury Land & Invest ment Company, and G. W. Thompson, the leader of the faction opposed to Kester-Kettenbach-West, a wealthy man. prominent politically, was ln-i dieted and his case Is pending. Thomp son contested the appointment of C. H. Llngenfelter, present United States Dis trict Attorney, who presented the Med bury evidence to the grand Jury that indicted him and who disqualified' him self In the Kettenbach bank cases, be cause of his long residence at Lewis ton and the fact that he had once been attorney for the Kettenbachs. District Attorney Llngenfelter was recently brought Into the" limelight over the tiling of charges against him by Van H. Hasbrouck, also a former resident of Lewiston. alleging the dis- trict attorney pushed to patent a min ing claim after taking office.

Commissioners anger Constituents by Starting Work on New $150,000 Courthouse When Injunction Fails. THE DALLES, Or.. July 27. (Spe cial.) Angered at the action of mem bers of the County Court In proceed ing with the erection of the new J150,- 000 courthouse after they had failed to enjoin officials from going ahead with the work, the courthouse op ponents today filed petitions with County Clerk F. R. Angle demanding that a special election be called, when the voters of Wasco County will have a chance to say whether County Judge A. E. Lake, of this city, and commis sioners C. H. Stoughton, of Dufur. and H. C. Rooper, of Antelope, shall be re called from office. County Court members have decided to oppose any attempt to call the pro posed recall election. They will file an Injunction restraining Clerk Angle from ordering the election on the ground that the recall law Is not operative in Oregon, a point which has been raised by District Attorney Cam eron, of Portland., and which Is now pending a decision in the Oregon Su preme Court. The petitions bear signatures of only 653 voters In the county, and most of these are residents of country dis tricts, principally Dufur. The petitions demand that if three officials do not resign within five days that Clerk Angle call an election in ac cordance with the constitution and general laws of the state. The charges against the officials are that the officers have been "extrava gant, unbusinesslike and careless." Judge Lake answers the leaders of the opposition ana cnarges inai mtj misrepresented the situation to many who signed the papers. He said: "I do not intend to resign, nor will Messrs. Stoughton and Rooper with draw. The County Court has not ex ceeded Its authority In any matter during my term of office. Further more, we do not intend to allow the county funds to be expended for a useless election and will file an in junction enjoining the Clerk from call ing such an election on the grounds that the recall law is not operative In Oregon. I feel satisfied that many of the signers of the recall petitions did so when they were ignorant of what the petitions were. It has been proved to me that misrepresentations were made by petitioners, which further In duces us to oppose a recall election."
