The annual session of the National
Good Roads Association commenced
in Portland last Wednesday, June 21.
It is comDosed of representative men
(and some women) from nearly every
State in the Union, including Federal.
State, County and Municipal officers,
and public spirited citizens, who take
and interest in this subject, which is
of ereat importance to the whole
country. There are many ways in
which improvements and betterments
in the present order of things might
be made, and the construction of bet
ter roads is one of them. It is more
prominent in the public mind than
many other important subjects, be
cause it is a physical necessity, visi
ble to the naked eye, and appeals to
the senses.

If all the people of Douglas county

Some of the papers are putting the
fact to the front very emphatically
that W. W. Cotton, the new district
judge is a great corporation lawyer
that he has been a corporation at
torney for years and that all his in

Perhaps the President was aware of
the fact. Most of the President's big
appointments, the secretary of the
navy and others have been corpora

Miss Lucille Mulhall is a most
unusual type of a girl, twenty years
of age. She owns and manages a
10,000 acre ranch in Oklahoma, and
her horse-feats and steer-roping abili
ties have made her the pet of the
plains. Some time ago she won a
prize of $10,000 in a cattle-roping from Kribs from

Judge A. S. Bennett, Senator Mitchell's
counsel, put words into the mouth of
Judge Tanner, the government's star
witness against Senator Mitchell, his
old law partner, Saturday, bringing
out that when Tanner entered iito
the agreements with Kribs to expedi
ate his claims, services by Mitchell
were not mentioned: that it was not
stipulated that the money paid by
Kribs was to go partly to Mitchell ;
that Mitchell had warned his partner
not to mix him up with cases before
the departments of the Government,
and not to take pay for any services
the Senator might perform before the
The defense showed by Tanner's
evidence that the contracts between
the two of 1901, referred to a prior
contract, made in 1897, at which
time Mitchell was not a Senator, and
that it provided for a division of the
fees earned by the two, either before
the Government departments or else
where. The testimony showed that
at the time this contract was changed,
Mitchell was in a hurry to get to
Washington and was busy both then
and thereafter.
Questions elicited the fact that up
on Mitchell's return to Portland in
December, 1904, he was met by Tan
ner, who told him of rumors that the

and had promised immunity to Pnter
and others if they would testify
against Mitchell; that Hitchcock was
after bigger game than the members
of the Puter gang, and expected to
"get" Mitchell and Hermann. This
caused the Senator anxiety. He said
he knew it was a case of persecution,
and that any means were justifiable to
defeat his accusers. He urged Tan
ner to stand by him, which the latter
agreed to do.
Tanner made a good witness for the
defense. He said, upon being ques
tioned, that Mitchell's half of the
firm's earnings was paid to the credit
of "John H. Mitchell, trustee," be
becaase, for years, Mitchell had been
trustee for others and bad started an
account in that way during his trustee
ship, and had since maintained it. The
checks from Kribs were placed by
Tanner personally in the bank and
credited to the firm, and divided at
the end of each month. Tanner said
he believed Mitchell never saw a check
the time it was is-

He testified that, with the exception
of one payment of his half of the
monthly earnings of the firm, all such
payments were shown to his credit by
duplicate deposit slips, sent on to him

a chance to know of the items enter

when a copy of the firm's books were
sent to him at Washington last winter.

It is observed that thus far in the
trial of Senator Mitchell not one
word has been uttered during the ex
amination of the government's wit-
ssee to implicate Mr. Hermann.
Letters of Senator Mitchell to his
law partner, Judge Tanner, proved
that those Kribs and Puter claims
were held up over two years in the
general land office by Mr. Hermann
while he was awaiting the reports on
the investigations as to the legality
of these entries by special agents of
the general land office, regardless of
the fact that Senator Mitchell, who
believed them to have been acquired
through the usual process of the
timberland laws, was urging their ex
pedition to patent. No one has ever
intimated that Mr. Hermann was paid
or received one cent for expediting
any claims to patents, in fact, Com
missioner Richards, who was Mr. Her
mann's assistant, stated upon the
witness stand at Portland that when
the claims of Puter and Kribs finally
passed to patent, Mr. Hermann called
him to bis office and requested that
he give the papers a final critical in
spection and see if there were any
reason why they should not be passed
to patent. Mr. Richards stated fur
ther that after examining the docu
ments carefully he thought the re
quirements of the law had been fully
complied with and that he issued the
patents himself. It is not at all prob
able if Mr. Hermann had been impli
cated in any conspiracy he would
have turned those claims all over to
Governor Richards for his thorough
investigation as well as all of the
findings of the special agents. A
mountain has been made of a mole
hill so far as the Ex-Commissioner
and his connections with the land
frauds are concerned and there never
has been, and we predict never will be
any evidence introduced to prove
' him knowingly guilty of any unlawful
connections with these land frauds.

E. Gostlieh, representing the Associated
Press, the three wheelmen who are
making the trip overland from Califor
nia to Portland to attend the Iewis and
'lark fair, reached this city Friday
evening just two days ahead of their
schedule. They state that they have
had a fine trip so far and bnt few acci
dents. They complain considerable of
the bad roads they have found so far in
Oregon and state that since crossing the
state line they have found but 5 pec
cent good roads while they claim that
90 per cent of the Tali forma are
number one. They believe that Ore
goniaos lack the energy to construct
roads and believe that we have tine soil,
rocks and gravel for road building. But
two accidents have been experienced by
these travelers and, strange to say, one
occurred on the good roads of California
near Eureka, where Mr. Farley broke
the frame of his wheel and was com
pelled to take the train for - miles. .The '
other accident occurred in Oregrn just j
oath of Canyonville in the cany in and j
on one of Oregon's worst roads, where i
the forks of the wheel ridden by Mr !
Hampton were broken and he was forced
to walk a distance of six miles to Kiddle
to take the train into this city where hi
wheel was repaired by Mr. Ilodson.
Mr. Gnstlieh, the press representative,
baa ridden the entire distance without
accident. These gentlemen left this
city Saturday noon, one day anil a half
ahead of their schedule. They dined at
