BOOM IN ORCHARD LANDS.
PRIMARY LAW CONSTRUED.
Boise, Idaho, March 3. The States
man says this morning:
"The Statesman is authorized to an
nounce that Steve Adams, arrested at
Haines, Or., on February 20, in con
nection with the Steunenberg assassi
nation, has made a full and sweeping
confession. This second confession is
far more important than that made by
This is the statement made ior pub
lication last evening by James McPar
land, the detective, in the presence of
Governor Gooding and J. H. Hawley,
who is in charge of the presocution.
Mr. McParland added that AdamB
confeesion fully and exactly corrobo
rated that made by Orchard at every
point touched upon by both. More
over, Mr. McParland continued, Adams
knows far more of the workings of the
4 'Inner Circlo" than Orchard did and
was able to give a mass of detailed
informatin that Orchard's confession
did not cover.
The confession of Adams, he said,
corroborated that given by Orchard in
every substantial point connected with
the assassination of ex-Governor Steu
nenberg. Adams, however, was not at
Caldwell at the time of the assassina
tion, nor was Orchard at the time of
the unsuccessful effort in November
The man who assisted Orchard on the
latter occasion, aa set forth in Or
chard's confession, waa Jack Simpkins
Still another statement made by the
detective was that the Adams confes
sion gave the details of a large number
of murders that were not referred to in
any manner by Orchard. It was fur
tber stated that the confession had been
reduced to writing, signed and acknow
lodged. It was a voluminous docu
ment, covering a greater field and in
more detail than that made by Orchard

Room for Settlers in Umatilla.
Pendleton Tho rapid manner in
which Umatilla county is being settled
has drawn attention of late to tho fact
that there is much good wheat land left
on what was once the Umatilla Indian
reservation. A tract of this land was
bought by tho government in 1807 and
sold in parcels at low prices to settlers.
In many cases 80 acres out of a quarter
