Failing and Beekman Awards
at University of Oregon
Coveted by Students.
entrants Are Carleton Spencer, How
ard Zimmerman, Hilda Brant,
David C. Prickett and Rus
sell I. Calkins.
Or., June 14. (Special.) Student In
terest at the University of Oregon is
focused on the annual contest for the
Falling and Beekman prizes in oratory,
which will be held in Villard Hall
Tuesday night, as part of the com
mencement exercises.
Formerly so many spellbinders have
entered the lists that a preliminary
try-out has been necessary to reduce
the number in the finals to six. This
Spring only six seniors declared their
intention of competing, and therefore
the elimination contest was dispensed
with. Since the first announcement one
aspirant, Alexander Martin, has with
drawn. This leaves the following to take
part in Tuesday's controversy: Carle
ton Spencer, of Cottage Grove, whose
subject will be "Protection Which Does
Not Protect" ; Howard Zimmerman, of
Salem, "Education for Citizenship";
Miss Hilda Brant, of Portland, "The
Man of Progress Wendell Phillips" ;
David C Pickett, of Prineville, "Prob
lems of Immigration"; Russell D. Calk
ins, of Eugene, "Representative Gov
ernment." They will appear on the
programme In the alphabetical order of
their names.
Prize Easterly Souffbt.
The winning of the Falling and
Beekman contest is counted one of the
chief honors within reach of the un
dergraduates at the University, on ac
count of Its history. Twenty-three
years ago the Falling prize was es
tablished by Henry Failing, of Port
land. It consists of the Income from a
gift of $2500, "to be awarded to that
member of the senior class in the clas
sical, scientific, or the literary course
prescribed by the University who shall
pronounce the best original oration at
the time of his or her graduation."
At the same time the Beekman prize
was oftered by C. C. Beekman, of Jack
sonville, under the same conditions as
the Falling prize, for the second best
oration. It is the income of a gift of
$16u0 made by Mr. Beekman. The Fall
ing prize amounts to $150 and the
Beekman prize to $100.
Carleton Spencer, president of the
student body, is one of the best-known
orators ever turned out at Oregon. In
his sophomore year he won first place
in the state oratorical contest. His vic
tory disqualified him for further par
ticipation in this contest, but he made
the varsity debating team last year,
competing in the disastrous meeting
with Washington.
Zimmerman' Record Good.
Zimmerman made the debating team
In his freshman and sophomore years.
during which Oregon won the coast
championship. His absence last year
Undoubtedly figured in Oregon's poor
showing, but he re-entered and took
part in the defeats of Stanford and
Utah and the reclaiming of the coast
championship for Oregon. He also won
second place In the state oratorical
contest this year, and was awarded the
alumni medal for the best debater in
college at the local try-out.
David C Pickett is the third Failing
Beekman contestant who has made the
varsity team. Last year he duplicated
Spencer's performance ol the previous
year by winning the state oratorical
contest. He also made the debating
team, and this year was a member of
the team which unanimously defeated
Washington. While in Salt Lake to
represent the lt-mon -yellow against
Utah. Pickett contracted a severe case
of tonstlltls, necessitating the rushing
of a substitute to the scene.
Mlsa Brant In Dramatic Club.
Miss Brant is a member of the dra-
matte Club and has appeared in sev
eral local productions. Calkins has
never tried out for the debating team.
Ho is president of the Oregon Club, an
"rsranlzatlon of students who do not
live In fraternity houses and dormi
tories, and is known as a convincing
speaker. It is declared that his speech
nominating Henry Fowler for the edi
torship of the Emerald this Spring had
much to do with Fowler's election.

Valuable Patents on Xooksack River
Revert to Government.
SEATTLE. June 14. Patents to six
mineral claims on he Xooksack River
held by the Whatcom County Railway
Llsht Company, a Stone & Webster
corporation, were declared void today
by Judge Edward E. Cushman in the
United States District Court and the
land, which includes 300 feet of water
fall, reverts to the United. States Gov
ernment. The waterpower is estimated to be
worth several million dollars, and a
$500,000 power-house built by the com
pany below the fall, but on land whose
title is not involved in the present de
cision, is said to be now of greatly
diminished value. The company fur
nishes light and power to Bellingham
and other cities.
According to the testimony intro
duced, the six claims were laid out
along the Nocksack River, straddling
the channel. It was contended by the
Government that the sole object in
seeking them was to take the power
sites, and that no mineral deposits
veins or lodes ever existed on them.
Judge Cushman, In his decision, held
that patent to the six claims had been
issued by the Government when at that

ASTORIA, Or, June 14. (Spe
cial.) Herman Wise will soon
for the second time assume the
position of Postmaster at the
Astoria office. He held that office
for four years during the Cleve
land Administration, and has just
received official notification of
his second appointment by Presi
dent Wilson.

two successive terms and also

Escaped Convict Caught After Battle
ta y Be He Id at a s t ern
Oregon Asylum.
PENDLETON, Or., June 14. (Special.)
Local authorities are puzzled by the
peculiar case of Charles Pickett, an es
caped convict, who is alleged to have
killed a guard in breaking out of the
Arkansas state penitentiary at Little
Rock in November, 1910, and was cap
tured after a running battle with local
police and citizens a few days ago.
When Chief of Police Kearney placed
him under arrest, Pickett fought des
perately, declaring that to return to
Arkansas meant death.
It has developed that Pickett for some
time had been acting in a strange man
ner. It is said that several weeks ago
ho pulled a gun suddenly in a focal re
sort and frightened the inmates and
habitues. Patrolman Russell went to
the rescue. Later, Mrs. M. I. Johnson,
a widow, telephoned the police saying
she was standing at the telephone with
the receiver in one hand and a revolver
In the other, holding off an intruder who
appeared to be a madman. Patrolman
Manning rushed to the house as Pick
ett fled.
Other acts have made the possibility
of his being insane a matter of con
jecture, and, instead of being returned
to Arkansas, Pickett may be commit
ted to the Eastern Oregon State Hos
pital. Piciiett was serving a 20-year sen
tence for murder in the Arkansas prts
n when he escaped. An ex convict
who had served his time and knew
Pickett, recognized him in Pend.etor
recently. Pickett said to him, "If you
tip me off, I'll kill you." The et-con-
vict informed the police, and Pickett's
ai rest soon followed.

The Dalles Saloon Licenses
May Not Be Renewed.
"Votes of Seven Councilmen Need to
Pass Emergency Bill Which Is
Favored. by Only Five.
Liquor Men Puzzled.
THE PAT.T.ES, Or.. June 14. (Spe
cial.) The Dalles may be a "dry" town
after June 30, when all the local liquor
licenses expire. Judge W. L. Brad-
snaw has overruled the demurrer of
the city in the case of the United
Brethren, Christian, Baptist and Meth
odist churches of this city, who insti
tuted proceedings in Circuit Court
against the city with the object of pre
venting the Council from reissuing sa
loon licenses on June 30.
They alleged that on account of an
omission which was made by the State
legislature in 130o, when it re-enacted
a section of the local charter, the Coun
cil has no legal right to issue liquor
permits, and has been illegally grant
ing saloon permits since 1905.
Ordinance Held IllesaL
Judge Bradshaw held that an ordi
nance which the Council passed in 1909
providing for licensing and regulat
ing of saloons, is not legal, because
at that time the city charter did not
give the Council power to license.
The Council will hold a special ses
sion soon and attempt to re-enact the
saloon ordinance of 1909, or draft a
similar measure under the home rule
amendment to the state constitution,
which was passed by the voters in 1910.
In order to place such an ordinance
in immediate effect it would require
an emergency clause and necessarily
would have to be favorably voted upon
by seven of the nine Councilmen. It
is understood that only five Council
men favor such action.
Tnlrty-Day "Drouth" Likely.
If the ordinance were passed with
only five Aldf rmen voting for It, the
measure would not be effective for 30
days and in the meantime, at least.
The Dalles would be "dry."
That the home rule is not self-enact,
ing has been hinted at by the Supreme
Court and it is possible that the Coun
cil legally cannot pass an ordinance
under that amendment in view of the
fact that the local charter since 190
nas not given the Council the power
to license the saloon business. The
question of the effect of the home rule
law on a city charter which does not
delegate saloon licensing power to the
Council has never been acted on by
the Supreme Court.
Local saloon men are puzzled, not
knowing whether they will be allowed
to operate after June 30.
Kffort Is Made to Fix Tax Status of
Railway's Land Holdings.
LEWISTON. Idaho, June 14. (Spe
cial.) For the purpose of considering
the ways and means by which the scrip
and unsurveyed lands of the Northern
Pacific Railroad Company in Clear
water County can bejSubjected to taxa
tion, a call has been issued at Orofino,
Idaho, for a convention to be held in
Coeur d'Alene, June 30.
This action comes as the result of a
widespread protest inaugurated by the
taxpayers or Clearwater County, ex
pressing their dissatisfaction with the
present status of title of the lands of
the railroad company. Investigation
developed that there are 222,437 acres
of unapproved scrip and unsurveyed
grant lands in that county held by this
company, and that of this amount
taxes are being paid on only 7855 acres.
In the northern counties of this state
conditions similar to those in Clear
water County have been found, show
ing that there are approximately 2,000,-
000 acres now exempted, from taxation.
Rehearing in Malheur County Irri
gation Case Is Sought.
SALEM. Or., June 13. (Special.) A.
S. Fields today petitioned the State
Water Board, to urge a rehearing in the
Federal Court of the Willow Creek
water case, alleging that the decision
was unfair to him and several others

Landowners near the reservoir con
tend there is not more than enough in
it for their use. Mr. Fields contends
that the water is illegally stored and
sayH it should be shared by all. The
petition will be considered at a meet
ing of the Board tomorrow. More
than $1. 000. 000 has been spent on the
project, which is in Malheur County.

BOISE, Idaho, June 14. (Special.)
The Public Utilities Commission has

Many problems of local and state
interest have been considered by the
Commission. The first relief obtained
through it went to the village of
Kuna, on the Oregon Short Line, 20
miles east of Xampa. The railroad had
given orders to remove the agent and
abandon the depot. The citizens held
a mass meeting and protested. The
protest was carried to the Commission,
which requested the Short Line to
stay execution of the order pending
an investigation. Officials of that road
