Trouble Looked for Over Siletz
OVER HUNDRED CLAIMS INVOLVED
Original Settlers Declare If Ejoctmont
Proceedings Fail Other Means
Will Bo Taken.
Newport, Or., Aug. 13. Proceed
ings to eject the alleged squatters on
the Siletz reservation claims of sever
al Lincoln county residents are to be
taken at once. If these are unsuccess
ful, the original settlers declare other
means to dispossess the contestants
will bo taken. Serious trouble is
Two of the claims in dispute were
originally taken by L. W. Williams,
and Frank Priest, of this city. W. S.
Copeland and V. Jiffcott are now on
these claims. They have been ordered
by the original claimants to move and
have refused. They declare that they
will stay until the cases are finally
settled by the land office.
This, it is declared, is the attitude
of all the contestants. The original
settlers declare they will not permit
the contestants to carry out this plan.
Homesteaders whose claims are thus
threatened do not know what to make
of this bold move by the "squatters."
They are certain that a hundred or
more of the best claims are now liable
to seizure any day. They are informed
by the men now squatting on their
places that legal advice has been ob
tained and that the squatters paid
large sum3 for the location and for
protection, but the. homesteaders are
in a fighting temper, because they
cannot see by what possible legal twist
they can be deprived of their claims
without a trial.
FIRES SPREAD TO BANFF.
Forests in Canada's Great National
Winnipeg, Aug. 13. The forest
fires which raged around Femie have
spread to Canada's national park dis
trict near Banff, in Pray valley. The
fire burned fiercely on the heights of
Goat mountain this week.
The government gang of men has the
fire in the valley under control, but
last night at several points on the
mountain eight miles away fire was
visible near the top.
A fire started at Castle mountain, 18
miles west of Banff last night under
strong west wind in a half hourjjhad
run over eight miles. Boats and sup
plies were forwarded from Banff. The
wind shifted to the northeast, and
with this in their favor the fire-fight
ers should be able to secure control.
No anxiety is felt at Banff about
this last fire, as it would be compar
atively easy to protect the town, even
if the fire came down the valley, owing
to the large area of open hay meadows
to the west, on which the grass is
yet green and on which water is yet

ORIENTALS AGAIN QUARREL.
Killing of Japanese Traitor Caught In
Pokin the Cause.
Pekin, Aug. 14. Tho killing in this
city early this month of a Japanese
army officer, supposed to bo n spy
and traitor, by Japanese soldiers at
tached to the Pekin legation, will re
sult in tho presentation by China of a
formal protest against tho doing of
police duty by legation guards outsido
of the legation precincts.
The officer in question was Captain
Kyhwata. Ho was in tho artillery
branch of tho Kiroshima division and
ho was formerly an instructor in the
Chinese military college at Pao Ting
Fu. He was charged with selling Jap
anese military secrets to a foreign
power and disappeared from Japan in
On August 1 he was discovered dis
guised as a Chinaman, hiding near tho
war office in Pekin. This knowledge
was communicated to tho legation
guards and a detachment was sent to
capture him. Ho resisted arrest.
whereupon the guard shot and wounded
the spy and he died two days later in
the hospital of tho legation guard.
M. Abe, the Japanese chartro d'af

importance of the prisoner in extenua

A NEW DOCTRINE.
Harriman Railroad Attorney Claims
' Roads Can Give Rebates.
San Francisco, Aug. 14. Peter P.
Dunne, attorney for tho Southern Pa
cific railroad in its defense against the
charge of illegal rebating before the
Railroad commissioners, today insisted
strongly that a common carrier could
not be guilty of unjust discrimination
unless the rate complained of was
made with "an evil intent." He held
further that the railroad was entirely
justified, the attorney general to the
contrary notwithstanding, in making
better terms to laree shippers than to
their small-fry rivals.
Mr. Dunne also touched upon the
matter of competition and held, in bp-
position to the arguments of Messrs
Benjamin and Cushing made the.day
before, that it was part of a company
inherent right of contract to take com
petition into consideration in making
He also argued that the railroad had
a right to consider whether it had a
chance to carry the same material
again in the form of a more finished
product and, when . there was such
chance, to make a lower rate on the
raw material. If any or all of the cir
cumstances considered made it good
policy to carry freight for nothing, he
could see no provision in the law to
OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
PRUNE GROWERS SMILE
Douglas County Promised Immenso
Crop This Season.
Roseburg Tillson & Co. have pur
chased a fine equipment for their largo
prune packing plant in this city, and
have begun work to enlarge and re
model tho plant to handle Douglas
county's largo pruno crop this year.
A now 30 horsepower boiler is now be
ing placed for tho steam plant, and
several now pieces of machinery for
grading nnd packing will be installed.
Nearly 200 enrs of evaporated prunes
will bo shipped out of the county from
various points, a largo portion of
which will bo handled by local firms.
In addition to tho new machinery the
building will bo enlarged to almost
twice its present size.
H. L. Giles & Co., of Salem, have
purchased tho Douglas County pruno
packing house of Receiver T. R. Sheri
dan, and will thoroughly overhaul and
make additions to tho equipment.
These two large packing houses are
kept running for from three to fqur
months every fall. Besides these two
plants, there is another packing house
at Myrtle Creek that handles from 20
to 50 carloads every season. There
will also be about 30 carloads of ap
ples shipped from Douglas county this
year. The Douglas County Fruit
growers' association will handle about
half of this crop of apples.
THE STATE FAIR.
WANT 6,000 STEEL CARS.
Harri'nan Lines Will Spend $6,000,
000 for Rolling Stock.
New York, Aug. 14. The Harriman
road3 are in the market for 6,000 steel
cars. No orders have been placed
but the car equipment companies have
been notified that this amount repre
sents the total of an early purchase by
the Harriman lines, and for more
than half the cars there have been
filed specifications on which the equip
ment companies may base their bids.
Competition between the companies is
said to be keen, for the orders, if
filled,, will be altogether the largest
since the panic.
The estimated cost of the 6,000 steel
cars ranges all the way from $6,000,
000 to $7,000,000. It is expected that
the lower figure will prove nearer cor
rect, for the reason that the competi
tion between the car equipment com
panics may result in a cut price.
Seize Another Steamer.
London. Auer. 14. Another cloud
has arisen between Japan and China,
according to a special dispatch re
ceived here from Hongkong, owing to
the seizure at Chin Chou by the Chin
ese authorities of a steamer having on
board 10,000 rifles and 2,000,000 cart
ridges. Japanese merchants have
protested, savimr that this cargo be
longs to them, and they threaten to
make another international question
out of it. This seizure is similar to
that of the Japanese steamer Tatsu
Maru in February of this year.

Thousands of Dollars Being Spent to
Mako It Success.
Salem For the state fair in 1907
the Southern Pacific railroad handled
215 carloads of stock and exhibits.
This year, while the fair is yet more
than six weeks away, 219 cars have
been ordered f6r hauling exhibits and
stock. Many favorable conditions are
working together harmoniously for a
great fair at Salem next month.
Several thousand dollars have been
expended in enlarging the permanent
exhibit building. The grand stand has
been enlarged so that it will accommo
date one-third more people. Men have
been at work on the grounds for some
weeks preparing them for the fair.
The shrubbery and grass is being cared
for and skeletons for decoration pur
poses are being erected. AH prepara
tions are starting early.
A feature that will greatly assist to
mako the state fair this year of more
worth and value will bo the co-opera
tion of the Portland Country club
which is offering attractive purses for
the livestock exhibitions and races.
BUILD BIG SMELTER.
Eastern Capitalists Will Do This If
County Builds Bridges.
"Snlcm Tho County Commissioners'
court at thoir last meeting heard tho
petition of Mining Engineer Gadsden,
representing Eastern capitalists, for
tho appropriation of $2,000 for tho
building of fivo bridges across tho Snn
tiam river, to mako tho Gold Creek
copper mines accessible. In return for
this investment, Mr. Gadsden guaran
tees tho erection of a smelter with a
capacity erf 100 tons per day.
It is expected that tho opening up of
these mines and tho building of the
smelter will result in tho location of a
refinery in this city. Tho Gold Creok
mines are located on tho head waters
of tho Santiam in tho cxtrcmo Eastern
part of Marion county.
A number of leading citizens appear
ed before tho court and argued in favor
of tho $2,000 appropriation.
Enlarge Salem Hatchery.
University of Oregon, Eugene Ac
cording to reports received hero, the
state salmon hatchery up the MeKen
zio river will not bo abandoned, but
extended, and arrangements will be
made this fall so that trout a3 well as
salmon can be hatched. Tho citizens
of Eugene will prpvide tho money for
the importation of trout eggs from the
East. It was rumored some time ago
that the hatchery would be abandoned,
but it is evident from a letter of tho
state fish commissioner that great im
provements will be mado in tho establishment.

Blow Out Beecher Rock.
' Eugene In the improvements which
the County court has authorized for
the Eugene-Mapleton wagon ccoad, the
most noteworthy is the order to blow
out Beecher rock, and Commissioner
Price will coon take up this big task.
Beecher rock, which overhangs . the
Siulslaw road, will be remembered by
every one who has made the trip to
Maplcton as the most dangerous point
on the trip. The rocK, which is a
mammqth one weighing thousands of
tons, will be blown to pieces and a
better and safer road cut out in the
aide of the mountain.
Enlarge College Campus.
Salem State Superintendent Acker-
man his returned from Corvallis, and
states that options have been secured
on land in the vicinity of the Agricul
tural college that will add about 16
acres to the campus of the Oregon Ag
ricultural college. It is expected that
at the meeting of the board of regents
at Portland on August 13 orders will
be given to buy the land on which op
tions have been secured.
Big Demand for Harney Ranches.
Drewsey William Dunlap of this
place" recently purchased the Howard
ranch, which is located about ono half
mile west of here. Tho ranch is a 160
acre tract seeded down in alfalfa. The
