THE SUNDAY OREGOXIAX. PORTLAND, JUNE 13. 1913. PRIZES IN ORATORY SOUGHT BY FIVE Failing and Beekman Awards at University of Oregon Coveted by Students. CONTEST WILL BE TUESDAY entrants Are Carleton Spencer, How ard Zimmerman, Hilda Brant, David C. Prickett and Rus sell I. Calkins. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, Eugene, 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.

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 EX-POSTMASTER AGAIN TO ASSUME POST AT ASTORIA Herman Wise. 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. Mr. Wise has Tesided in Astoria since 1880. He was Mayor for two successive terms and also served as treasurer. He was one of the Oregon delegates last year to the Democratic National con vention In Baltimore. time a protest was on file with the Interior Department from the acting forester. Shortly after the pTotest had been made the patents were issued. FUGITIVE MAY BE INSANE ARKANSAS MURDERER AT PEN DLETON MAY STAY. 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. SHERIDAN WILL BE PAVED Couneil to Make Awards for Two Miles of Hard-Surfacing. SHERIDAN, Or June 14. (Special.) Sheridan soon will have paved streets. Work has been commenced on the contract let for Main street and streets tributary thereto. At a special meeting of the Council Wednesday night measures were passed providing for paving the principal streets on the East Side 01 the itiver." The county road. Bridge street. East First street Monroe and Railroad streets will be hard surfaced for several blocks. In all there will be about 20,000 yards of hard-surface pavement under construe tion soon. There has been considerable opposi tion to some of the proposed work, but with the exception of Railroad street the Council has issued orders for the work and. the contract will soon be let. Property owners on Railroad street are still conferring with the members of the Council. The new administration believes in good streets and will let contracts for about two miles of pave ment. LAND OFFICE IN NEW HOME Receiver and Register at La Grande Now In Federal Building. LA GRANDE. Or.. June 14. (Special.) After seven yeare' occupancy of the Foley building, the United States Land Office has been moved to the second floor of the new Federal btllldinfC. Receiver F. C.

" IS LIKELY The Dalles Saloon Licenses May Not Be Renewed. 'DRYS'WIN COURT DECISION "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. IDAHO TAXPAYERS ACTIVE 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. WATER BOARD PETITIONED 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 owning 3000 acres of land below the reservoir. 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. rne water master was enjoined from letting out more than 240 acre-feet of water upon application of the trustee in oankruptcy of the Willow River Land & Irrigation Company. EUGENE DEPOT BIDS ASKED More Elaborate Station Than at First Planned, to Be Built. EUGENE, Or., June 14. (Special.) Copies of the plans and specifications for the proposed Oregon Electric pas senger station ror Eugene, just re ceived here, indicate an even more elaborate building- than was first pro posed.
