that have reached Spokane today from

Summed up in accordance with in

known to exist In Washington. Mon

and Alberta, the state of affairs in the
labor market presents a situation In
which this section of the country is
shown to be In rigid competition for

It Is declared that 60,000 men are
needed to handle the crops In the Rod

Free fare Is being offered for men

OREGON HEIRS ARE FOUND
Complication Arises in Everett Es

Alloa Howard, who died at Marysville
In 110. leaving a a estate of J 10.000.
but at the hearing which occupied the
ttme of Judge Bell in Superior Court
It developed that there are two aets of
heirs and a great legal fight was
waged as a result.
Cullom says he la the only child ol
James Cullom and an aunt's daugh
ter married M. W. Howard. That
daughter was Alice I. Ferguson and
shortly after the marriage the husband
died. At the end of a year after the
marriage Mrs. Howard died. But the
extra heirs appear to have popped up

division undoubtedly will recognize the
newly-asserted heirs, who come from

WOODLAND, Wash.. July ST. (Spe

operating the Marble Creek Lumber
Company sawmill, 12 milee above Wood

menced dismantling the. mill this week
preparatory to Its removal and con

under the same cover that he has used
for his planing mill at the northern
end of the town, and after he gets It
running he will be abl to manufac
ture completely at this point all classes

This enterprise means that there will
be several men added to the payrolls
of Woodland enterprises, and, in all

families to the population. He will
bring his logs from his timber hold
ings up the river and manufacture
-here, and in this way will b able to

cannot be used for lumber oan be sold

UNCLE SAM TO TEST LAW
Interesting; Land Case In Oregon to
Be Heard Next Month.
KLAMATH FALLS". Or.. July 27
fSDaclaL) A case which excites con
siderable interest in thla section Is
that of the United States against C A.
Bnntlnr of Merrill. Or for interf er
ase with the ditches of the Govern
ment. This case will establish a prec
edent In such matters. C. J. Ferguson,
of this city, has been appointed a spe
cial commissioner to take testimony
In the case, and the hearing has been
fixed for August 12. This course will
save both sides much expense, as oth
erwise all attorneys and witnesses
would be compelled to go. to Portland
and appear before the United States
The history of the case seems to be
as follows: When the Government
opened the Klamath project It found
here a private irrigating system,
known as the "Adams Canal," which
it purchased, but on examining title
found that the rights of way were not
all deeded. There was held back from
the purchase price $5000. to assure the
completion of the title. Bunting's land
Is In this class, and he and the owners
of the canal have not been able to
agree on the terms of settlement.
The Government charges that he has
eut the banks of a lateral on his place
at points other than the regular turn
outs and thua Interfered with the dis
tribution of water to his neighbors.
In this state the law gives title to
land held 10 years in undisputed pos
session.; and the owners of the canal
probably rely on that to some extent.
When the canal was built the land was
worth very little, but now values In
that section run from 75 to 10 per
acre. In the olden days men traded
land about as they would dogs, one
instance being cited where two men
traded parts of their farms without
writing of any kind and now own the
land by virtue of the law oited above.
The testimony will go to the court

Labor Scarce in Klamath Country.
KLAMATH FALLS, Or.. July 27.
(Special.) Labor is scarce in the
Klamath region. The beginning of
work by the Reclamation Service, the
starting work In the logging camps
and various mills and tha opening of
the harvest season hava absorbed all
the available labor, and farmers have
advanced their wages from 1.50 per
day with board to 82.00 per day and
are not yet getting a full supply of
help. The prospects are that there
will be good demand for ordinary la
bor here until December 1 and perhaps
longer. This will be determined by
the weather conditions in the late
Fall. Some seasons work of all kinds
can ba continued until the end of the
year and sometimes the weather pre

Moved by the recent drowning at Gear

appeal to the Counoll for safeguards to
bathers. Drownings at Seaside have
been comparatively few In recent
years, but as a protection to foolhardy
bathers who persist In taking unrea
sonable chances for the sake of the op
portunity to show their prowess as
swimmers. It is proposed to ask that

pistol shots. Howard Dllley, son of
Mrs. Saunders, was arrested for shoot
ing firearm within . the city limits.
Police Judge Allen dismissed the
charge when the circumstances were
related, though Dllley admitted the
shooting. Mrs. Saunders testified that
on account of ill health she has often
contemplated suicide. Being alone
much, she kept a revolver in the house
at all times. The son said he objected
to this and that this morning he took
the gun and fired the shots so that
his mother would not have anything
