LINCOLN'. Mass, March 20. Charles
jrrancis Adams, widely known as a
soldier, railway president, historian and
publicist, died today in Washington
from grip. He was 80 years old and
his age Is said to have militated against
his recovery from the Illness which a
week ago confinea him to his bed.
News of his death was received at his
home here today.
Charles Francis Adams was a great
jrrandson of President John Adams, a
xn-andson of President John Quincy
Adams and a son of Charles Francis
Adams. Minister to Great Britain in
the Civil War period. A biography of
his father, which included a review of
the diplomatic negotiations between
the United States and Great Britain
over Civil War problems, was one of
Mr. Adams' best known books.
He served in the Union Army through
the Civil War, rising in rank from First
Lieutenant to Colonel and Brevet Brigadier-General
of Volunteers. After the
war he was identified with railroad af
fairs for many years, serving for si
years as president of the Union Pacific
Railroad and for 10 years as a member
of the Massachusetts Board of Railroad

when he gave high praise to General
Robert li. Lee and suggested the erec
tion of a monument to Lee at Washing
ton, and at Richmond in 1908, when as
an "independent Democrat" he urged
the election of Taft over Bryan, at
tracted wide attention.
GROWTH OP PORTLAND AIDED
Sir. Adams Once Interested in De
velopment of City.
Charles Francis Adams was closely
ronnected with the growth of Port
land. He helped form the Irvington
Company and was one of the group of
capitalists who had faith in Portland's
future in earlier days before suburbs
had become popular and investment in
that class of property was as certain
of profits as in later years.
The late C. H. Prescott, of Portland,
who was associated with Mr. Adams
in various projects, formed the Irving
ton Company about 25 years ago and
interested Mr. Adams in it. The big
gest stockholders in the company were
heirs of the Weld estate, Boston. Mrs.
Prescott was a member of this family.
Irvington in those days, before street
car lines were run to distant parts of
the East Side, was thought to be a
long way from the city. The men be
hind the company, however, believed
firmly that Portland would grow so
that the property would be In demand.
To be ready for the growth they felt
was coming, extensive improvements
were made. sidewalks laid, trees
planted and streets graded.
It was 17 years that original Irving
ton was carried by the backers of the
project before anything was done with
it. On the death of Mr. Prescott in Au
gust 1895. the property was sold as a
whole to J. C. Costello, of Seattle, who
came to Portland on acquiring the
company's holdings in their entirety.
Those who formed the company re
alized some profits from the project,
but they sold out before the real ad
vance in Portland property values
came and it was left for their succes
sors to reap the harvest that came
later as the result of their business
Mr. Adams was a frequent visitor to
Portland, particularly during the
period that he was interested here.
B. C. Mears is among those who knew
him well. He saw Mr. Adams in Port
land about four years ago, which was
probably his last trip to the city. He
had interests in water projects in the
Lewiston. Idaho, district, and one of his
eons lives there now.

the German battle line in Russia the
next evening. .
Just now Posen is the headquarters
for all the forms of activity directed
against Russia. The brains are here
under Von Hindenburg's short pompa
dour; the taciturn general staff which
works out the devisings of that brain
is around him and here is the principal
point of departure for tne new troops
daily being sent eastward into the
little valleys and the woodlands lying
between Bolimow and Warsaw.
Posen. in other words, is "the works."
On the wall of the breakfast room of
the Hotel de Rome hung a wooden
shield carved in high relief with a coat
of arms that seemed to me Russian, and
I could not understand why it was dis
played 'n this German city.
One of the cadets of the house of
Bismarck explained. "I noticed that you
were studying that coat of arm3 on the
wall of the breakfast-room when you
arrived here yesterday morning," said
he. "Naturally you were puzzled. Well,
I must tell you about it- You see. one
of our officers took it down from the
City Hall of a Russian town we had
captured and in a frivolous mood he
brought it back here and hung it up in
Pennants Flaunt Victories.
That phrase "in a frivolous mood"
has stuck in my mind; I don't know
Also "in a frivolous mood." I suppose,
there have been hung on the walls of
the breakfast-room pennants of red and
blue and green bearing the dates of the
important German victories won since
the first of August Liege. Tannen
berg, Namur, Antwerp, Maubeuge, and
"I suppose Warsaw goes up next,"
said the cadet of the house of Bismarck
as he gazed reflectively at the pen
nants embroidered with oak leaves. He
was wrong. Soissons went up next. In
the meantime Posen has made ready for
eventualities that might cause its name
to "go up" on Russian pennants of vic
tory. It doesn't anticipate any such
eventualities, but, having been ' im
pregnated with German caution since it
became a German possession, the an
cient Polish city has taken measures
with an eye to the uncertainties of
war. The floors of its beautiful Em
peror Frederick museum have been
cleared of statuary and in its place rise
10-foot pyramids of tinned meats and
vegetables. All the plain to the east of
Posen has been cut up with an elabor
ate system of entrenchments and out
works connected by telephone and over
looked by signal towers hidden amid
the pine trees. This work has been
done mostly by a class of young Poles
whose idling habits were their periL
They are welj paid and are beginning
to look with a favorable eye upon toil
as a means of livelihood.
Poles Regarded as Friendly.
It is the feeling of the German popu
lation of German Poland that on the
whole the Poles have shown a good
attitude towards the government in
this war and the continued evidences
of that well-disposed state of mind
pleases the Germans more than a vic
tory does. The best proof that the
Poles are loyal and the Germans grate
ful lies in the fact that the archbishop
ric of Posen is now filled for the first
time in 21 years. When the old arch
bishop died the activities of the
Catholic party in German Poland were
of such a nature that the government
determined not to permit the filling of
the vacant post. For 21 years the work
of the archdiocese has been done by
the auxiliary bishop, LikowskL But by
way of recognition of the attitude of
the Polish clerics he was lately ele
vated to the full archieplscopal dignity.
The loyalty of the people also finds
expression in minor ways some of
them the usual petty signs of chauvin
ism and some of them springing from
a general spirit of reconciliation in a
time of trouble. Of the latter nature
was the decision of a highly esteemed
Polish actress to appear at the German-controlled
municipal theater of
Posen, where she had never consented
to act before, and of the former is the
refusal of the people to buy an Amer
ican safety razor because tbey think' it
is of English manufacture. The Amer
ican manufacturer of a hair tonic has
been cleverer than the razor man and
has put a picture of an American flag
on the wrappers of his product.
Prisoners Considerately Treated.
While German soldiers are streaming
out of Posen for the front Russian
soldiers are streaming in en route to
the prison camps in the' interior of
Germany. At the main railway station
they were treated with undoubted con
sideration. One sees them marunmg down the
platform hugging the loaves of bread
which had been thrust into their hands
as they left the train. Under one arm
they carried their soup bowls. When
they lined up in front of the soup ket
tles and the bowls were filled, most
of the prisoners had lost their spoons
and had to drink the soup from the
bowls. When they had finished the
first bowl they stood before the ket
tles, the hungry look stiU In their
eyes but their minds uncertain as to
whether it was fitting to ask for more
German men and women who were
doing Red Cross work at the station
passed them and said: "Well, children,
have you had enough? The poor pris
oners could neither understand Ger
man nor make themselves understood
So there was no answer.
Work Trying; on Women.
A German army surgeon came that
way. He wasted no words, but just
filled tne dowis asn.
His language the Russians under
stood. ' ... ,
The work at the railway station is
trying for the German women, espe
when it involves the care of the
German wounded. The hungry eyes of
the Russian prisoners loucn ineir
hearts and the suffering of their own
people tears them. The consequence s
that they go home at night worn out
in body and spirit. A German woman
of birth who had served a week amid
these scenes got in such a state that
she could neither eat nor sleep. Her
husband took her in hand.
1 cannot allow this to go on," he
said. "Too will kill yourself."

in a passion of weeping. "I can bear

But after a week's rest she. was

ATTORNEY-GENERAL TO INVESTI
GATE HARXEY COUNTY CASE.
Pacific Livestock Company Contends It
Is Innocent Purchaser of
SALEM, Or.. March 20. (Special.)
While the members of the State Land
Hoard have decided that the suit filed
by the state against tne t-aciric live
stock Company to recover about 26,000
acres of land in Harney County should
be dismissed, announcement was made
today that formal action would not be
taken until Attorney-General Brown
had made an investigation of the litiga
tion. The suit was started by ex-Attorney-General
Crawford upon instruction
of ex-Governor West. Circuit Judge
Bfegs recently overruled a demurrer to
the complaint, and unless dismissed the
suit will be. tried soon upon its merits.
Lawyers for the company several
days ago asked that the suit be dis
missed upon the ground that it was
barred by the statute of limitation.
They also contended that the company
was an innocent purchaser, the land
having been held by several concerns
prior to the present ownership.
It was charged that the land origin
ally was obtained through the use of
dummy entrymen. C. B. McConnell, of
Burns, has filed on the water rights in
the tract, and has aided the state in its
legal fight. Asked by Mr. West, then
Governor, at one of the meetings if he
would relinquish his water claims if the
state won the suit, Mr. McConnell said
he would not. but that he would sell
them for a low price. "
