Heney and Burns nave Evidence
Against Mayor and Boss.
WILL INDICT THEM AND OTHERS
Mayor Schmltz and Boss Reuf Impli
cated In 3700,000 Railway
San Francisco. Oct. 25. That tho
evidence they have gathered is sufH;
cient to send Abe Ruef, Mayor Schmita
a dozen or more supervisors, a coterie
of commissioners and a score or moro
of petty officials to the penitentiary
Is the news which has leaked out from
tho inner councils of Attorney Francis
J. Heney and Detective W. J. Burns,
who, working In conjunction with Dis
trict Attorney Langdon, have uncov
ered graft in San Francisco on a scale
that would make even "Boss" Tweed
sit up and take notice.
Trolley franchises sold for $700,-
OOO: retail liquor dealers held up for
thousands of dollars: theaters forced
to give up a third of their profits; con
tractors made to pay tribute; paving
contractors allowed to fatten off the
city treasury; wholesale liquor dealers
compelled to pay monthly royalties;
French restaurants mulcted for gigan
tic "fees," and even women of the ten
derloln coerced into dividing 'the earn
ings of their shame. This is some of
the moral rottenness laid at the door
of the present city administration.
It is said that among the first Indict
ments to be asked will be one for
Mayor Schmltz, who is now in Europe,
with his wife, and one for Abe Ruef,
the city "boss."
"We shall get the crooks," they say,
and then they add, ,rWe are going to
get the big ones as well as the small
First In Importance of all the sub
jects that the two men have Investi
gated comes the trolly deal. Shortly
after the earthquake and fire last
April the "United Railroads was given
a blanket franchise by the supervision
to convert Its cable roads Into an over
head electric system: Before the fire
the "United Railroads was refused such
v. franchise. For the blanket fran
chise tho corporation paid the city
nothing. Traction experts value
concession at $5,000,000.
It is stated that Heney and Burns
have secured confessions from mem
bers of the Board of Supervisors ex
posing a gigantic graft in this connec
The amount the United Railroads
paid for the privilege of converting all
its cable roads into electric lines is
said to have been 5700,000, and. ac
cording to the written and signed con
fessions of sunervlsors. said to
he now In Heney's possession
only $72,000 was turned over by Ruef
for distribution among the 18 members
of the board.
President Calls on People to Observe
Washington, Oct. 24. Tho president
has issued a proclamation naming
Thursday, November 20, aa a day of
thanksgiving. Tho text of the procla
mation is as folio wa:
"The time of the year has come
when, in accordance with the wise cus
tom of onr fathers, it becomes my duty
to Bet aside a special day of thanksgiv
ing and praise to the Almighty becauso
of blessings we have received and of
power prayer that these blessings may
be continued. Yet another year of
widespread well-being baB passod.
Never before in our history or in the
history of any other nation baa' a peo
pie enjoyed moie abonnding material
prosperity than has ours; a prosperity
so great that it should arouBO in ub no
spirit of reckless pride, and least of all,
a spirit of heedless disregard of onr
responsibility: but rather a sober cense
of our many blessings, and a resolute
purpose, under Providence, not to for
feit them by any action of our own.
"Material well-being, indispensable
though it is, can never be anything but
the foundation of true national great
ness and happiness. If we build noth-'
ing upon this foundation, then our na
tional life will be as meaningless and
empty aa a house where only tho found
ation has been laid. Upon our mater
ial well-being must be built a super
structure of individual and national life
lived in accordance with the lawa of
the highest morality, or else our pros
perity Itself will in the long run turn
ont a curse instead of a blessing. We
Bhould be both reverently thankful for
what we have received and earnestly
bent upon turning it into a mesni of
grace and not of destruction.
"Accordingly, I hereby set apart
Thursday, the 20th day of Novtmbsr,
next, as the day of thanksgiving and
supplication, upon which the people
shall meet in their homes or churches,
devoutly acknowledging that which
has been given tbem and to pray that
they may in addition receive the power
to use these sifts aright.
"In witness whereof I have here cto
set my hand and caused the peal ot the
United States to be affixed.
"Done at the city of Washington this
22d day of October, in the year of our
Lord, 1006, and of the independence of
tho United States the 131st.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
DISTILLERY TO BE BUILT.
North Bend Will Probably Socuro Do
natured Alcohol Plant.
North Bend Tho Coos bar country
has secured the establishment of a
plant for tho manufacture of denatured
alcohol and tho distillery will bo ready
to receive potatoes from tho far mors
gS. T. Clover, of tho American Alco
hol company, Now York, camo to the
Coob bay country about two weeks ago
in an endeavor to interest tho farmers
in denatured alcohol. Ho was accom
panied by Dr. Withycombe, who con
ducted Bovoral farmers' institutes in the
county and at these meetings tho sys
tem of conducting denatured plants was
explained to the farmers. It was ex
plained that if 75,000 tons of potatoes
were promised the company it would at
once proparo to begin operations. The
distillery could easily handlo twice tho
quantity named, but was willing to
start on a small scale.
Contracts were entered into with a
number of farmers on a basis of $8 por
ton for three years, tho distillery to
take potatoes of all sizes. It 1b esti
mated that at this price farmers will
receive nearly $100 por aero for their
It waa explained by the promoters of
tho enterprise that when the distillery
was running at its full capacity
would require 87 tonB of coal per day
for 10 months in the year to convort
the tubers into alcohol, and this would
prove a great stimulus to coal mining
Furthermore, a number of by-products
wonld be manufactured that would
greatly increase the payroll.
Although the Bite for the dietillory
has not been definitely announced
will probably go to North Bend.
CHANGES IN CABINET.
MOODY FOR SUPREME BENCH.
Roosevelt Will Appoint Him Despite
Washington, Oct. 25. While no of
ficial statement is obtainable, unofficial
advices confirm the report that the
President will appoint Attorney Gen
eral William K. Moody, of Massachu
setts, to the vacancy in the Supreme
Bench, made by the retirement of As
sociate Justice Henry B. Brown.
The announced Intention of the Pres
ident to appoint Mr. Moody came as a
surprise, as it was generally under
stood that he eliminated the Attorney
General from consideration In that
connection because of the fact mainly
that Massachusetts already had a rep
resentative on the bench in the person
of Associate Justice Holmes.
Mr. Moody's nomination will be sent
to the senate when congress convenes,
but the general expectation Is that he
will not take his seat on the bench un
til about January 1. i
Demand Eight-Hour Day.
Chicago, Oct. 25. The Brotherhood
of Railroad Trainmen, on behalf of its
switchmen, today presented demands to
all the railroads entering Chicago for
an eight-bout day. The Brotherhood's
action follows that of the Switchmen's
union, which preeented similar de
mands some time ago. The railroads
will be obliged now to deal with prac
tically the whole organized strength of
the Switchmen's union. In this re
epect the movement ia the most exten
sive attempted by the railroad organ
izationa in many years.
Missionary Association Finance.
Oberlin, O., Oct. 25. The sixtieth
annual meeting of the American Mia
sionary association began here today.

that the reset ve legacy account for cur
rent work 1000-7 will he $65,723 and

Forbids "Tho Clansman."
Philadelphia, Oct. 25. Mayor Wea
ver today issued an order .suppressing
the further production here of the
drama, "The Clansman." The mayor'?
action waa prompted by the demonstra
tion last night at the theater by several
thousand colored citizens.
General Shifting of Positions to Take
Washington, Oct. 24. Tho follow
ing statement regarding prospective
changes in President Roosevelt's cabi
net waa made pubile tonight:
"On the retirement of Secretary

es will be made:
"Secretary of the treasury George
"PostmaBter general George Von
"Attorney general Charles J. Bona
parte. "Secretary of the navy Victor H.
"Secretary of commerce and labor
Oscar S. Straus."
The general understanding for some
time has been that Attorney General
Moody will retire on January 1 and
that Secretary Sha'w will follow him on
March 4 next.
Mr. Meyer, who will become post
master general, is ambassador to Rus
sia, lie 18 a native of Massachusetts
and has been well known as a business
The appointment of Mr. Straus
caused considerable surprise, as it will
be the first case where a citizen of the
Hebrew faith haa been made a member
of the president's cabinet. He was
born in 1850 and is well known aa a
merchant, diplomat and author. He
represented the United Statea aa minis
ter to Turkey on two different occa
sions and was appointed by Pesident
Roosevelt to fill the vacancy caused by
the death of ex-President Harrison as
member of the permanent court of
arbitration at The Hague.
Mines Fabulously Rich.
Lakeview W. I. Fleck, member of
the firm of Fleck & Snowgoose, mining
experta and assayors of Bidwell, was i
Lakeview recently on his way home
from the Windy Hollow mines, in
Warner valley, known now aa tho Lost
Cabin mining district. Mr. Fleck is
enthusiastic over the prospects of tho
new mining camp, and believes firmly
that it will develop rich diggings. He
stated that he took samples of the rock
indiscriminately around one of the por
pbyry dikes on one of tho claims, and
also the dirt for several feet from the
dike, and fonnd it to assay $50 to the
ton on an average. These tests, were
mado from rock and dirt from the top
of the ground.
Reserve in Southern Oregon.
Salem A proclamation creating the
Siskiyou forest reserve, comprising
about one-half of Josephine county and
two or tbreo townships of Douglas
connty, has been received by Governor
Chamberlain from President Roosevelt
This is the reserve concerning which
strong protest was made a year or two
ago by residents of Curry county. As
originally planned, the reserve included
about three-fifths of Curry county, but
the proteeta were so strong and persist
ent that the linea of the temporary
withdrawal were changed and in finally
creating the reserve no Curry county
lands are inclnded. The reeerve covers
over 700,000 acrea.
Modern Road In Coquille Valley.

on the road between Myrtle Point and
Coquille, ia about to suspend work, ow
ing to wet weather. The result of the
work which has been done thus far is
the graveling of the entire road between
Coquille and Myrtle Point. This road
ia laid on a good grade, and the cover
ing oi crnsnea rocK mates it as good a
road as any Oregon can boast of. It is
an excellent quality of rock for this
purpose, which is quarried where the
cruBber is located.

and imnosod upon tho county troasur-
nr. 1h ono of tho rccommondatlons con

itself of consldorablo Importance In the
innnnonmnnt of county nffalrs, but It
nnHiimea nartlculat interest to sheriffs
ami trpARiirors when coupled with tho
suggestion that this chaugo will mako
neceesaiy.a reduction of tho salarloa of
ahetifls and a raleo of tho alarlca of
treasurers. Tho commission concludes
tho sublect by toinarklng that tho leg
islatnre, if it makes tho chnngo, should
not overlook tho salary matter.
Thnt tho handling of public funds is
moie particularly tho work of n tress
uror and not of a shoriiT, Is tho princl

Tho commission is of tho opinion that
tho accounts could bo just sa accurately
checked if tho monoy woro paid direct
y to county treasurers as it could bo if
it were first paid to tho shorliTs and by
them turned over io tho treasurers
There would be ono toss opportunity
for mismanagement. The commission
does not baso its recommendation so
much upon its own reasoning, however
ah it does unon tho reasoning of a sher

Lane Prune Crop Is Big.
Eugene Prune drying in Lane coun
ty has been about completed, and It is
foundthat tho output this'year is much
larger than last year. Rains at tho
