Salem, Feb. 31. Eight bills passed by

'Bobwhite" ftail Liberated
Cottage Grove, Feb. 21. J. W. Baker,
State Game Warden, has been busy for
the last week liberating a large quantity
of "Bob White" quail. On Friday he re
ceived a shipment of over 100 birds and
tnrned them loose near this place.
Under natural conditions these birds
will increase very rapidly, and it is to
be hoped that they will be protected.
He expects to receive more if they can
be caught. They come from near Jef

Mckinley and Marie Ware, whoa
names have become familiar to the
public thiough the exposure of the
colossal land frauds in Oregon, desired
to view the inside of a prison and last
night were escorted to the citv jail by
Acting Sergeant Carpenter.
At police headquarters they were
able to stand on tside of the jail prop
er and gaze through the steel csges,
which they did for several minutes.
"I was anxious to see what a jail
looked like," said Mis Ware, smiling.
"Mr. Mckinley and I have been pretty
close to jails of late, and may be clover
some time, bat we just wanted te sea
what the are like. This jail doesn't
frighten me at all. It really looks
quite comfortable. Indeed, I ahoald

McKinley remained silent on the mat

was in a talkative mood, and comment

OF THE BEST QUALITIES
Washington, D. C . Feb. 21 United
Stales Attorney Heney is engaged today
answering a point in the Hyde-Benson
m, upon the determination of which
the success or failure of many of the
recent land fraud suits in Oregon hinge.
The point raised by the attorneys for
the defendant is that in acquiring lieu
lands from the state by frand the
nited States has not been injured or
defrauded, inasmuch aa the title to the
lands it secured in exchange for those
obtained by the defendants is perfect
and not impaired. The defendants con
tend that, while the state might have
remedy against persons unlawfully ac
quiring state lands, through their ex-
hangs for those in the reserve, the
United states has no recourses, not hev-
ng been injured, and that the United
States courts are without jurisdiction
Heney contends that the defendants
engaged in-conspiracy to defraud, and
the fact that the United States was not
defrauded or injured, does not consti
tute on adequate defense. He contends
that the United states it trustee for all
of its citizens, and is bound to see that
the public lands, which belong to the
people, are disposed of lawfully.

pear for Hyde and Benson.
Mr. Heney states that it will probably
be June before it will be practicable to
begin the trial of the convicted mem
bers of the Oregon delegation , as the
month of April will be consumed in
finishing .the investigation before the
grand jury, and during the month of
May the federal court will be busy

Portland, Feb. 18. While some three

Japs, comprised of men too short stature
to pass the examination required of vol

Three Jtondred cars of new heavy

As Mother Used To N.
GOVERNOR APPOINTS HARRIS
He criticised bar puddings and he found
unit with her cake,
Me wished she'd make such biscuits a-
mother used to make :
She didn't wash the dishes, and she
diem t make a stew,
Nor even mend his stockings as his
mother used to do
His mother had six children, bat by
night her work was done ;
His wife seemed always drudging, yet
she only had the one.
His mother always was well dressed
his wife would be so, too.
If she would only manage as his mother
used to do
Ah, well '. she was not perfect, though
she tried to do her best,
Until at length she thought her time
bad come to have a rest ;
So one day he went the same old
rigmarole all through,
turned and boxed his ears just aa
hie mother used to do.

Washington, Feb. 20. District attor
ney Heney said today that the Mitchell-

will probably not be tried before June.
He talked the matter oyer with Judge
Bellinger at Portland, and the Judge
thought April a bad month to get a

Washington, Feb. 22 In connection
itb Mitchell's letter to Tanner, it de
velops that Max Pracht, who delivered
the letter to Robertson, tnrned a sharp
trick to his own advantage. Pracht re
cently resigned as special agent of the
Land Office and came to Washington
seeking an appointment in some other
department, but bis closest friends, Her
mann and Mitchell, were indited and
could not help him. When Mitchell de
cided to write Tanner, he did not trust
Robertson either to write or to knowing
ly carry any word to his law partner,
and had Pracht hand the fatal letter
to Robertson to throw him off the scent.
Pracht was shrewd enough to surmise
that the letter was important and on
the quiet he informed the secret service
people of the Treasury that Robertson
was carrying an important paper to
Tanner. Pracht'e tip led to the capture
of this very important document in the
Government's case, and a few days later
Pracht was appointed special agent in
the Treasury Department.
Harry C. Robertson, Senator Mithell's
private secretary, whoee testimony .be
fore the grand jury and before Judge
Bellinger in Portland was anything but
favorable to Senator Mitchell, has not
lost his position, as was anticipated, but
has resumed his duties at the Capitol.
Senator Mitchell declines to say whether
or not he intends to dismiss Mr. Robert
son, but it appears that for the present
nothing will be done.

were the ones arrested Monday on sus
