LINE FROM BOISE TO COOS BAY
Governor Brady Pledges Support to
Movement for Opening Door
From Interior to Sea.
Boise. Feb. 27. A state-aided rail
road from BoJbo to Coos bay is the
chief object of tho Oregon-Idaho De
velopment congress, which oponcd to
day, attended by 100 representative
men from Eastern and Central Oregon
and Southeastern Idaho.
The object of the congress was heart
ily endorsed by Governor Brady, who
welcomed the delegates. He said he
would pledge h:a support for any ac
tion which would give Idaho better
mean3 of transportation and open its
doors to reach the seaports of the Fa
cific. He spoke of the growth of tho
state, its wonderful develoDment and
ts creat resources, stating that it
would continue to crow and, even if
walled in, would continue to develop,
as it had all the resources needed if
left to stand alone.
"But," he continued, "we want to
extend our resources into Idaho. When
the Panama canal is completed it will
mean one of the greatest freight rate
reducers for the West that it could
possibly have, for at that time the
great steamers from the East will un
load cargoes at San Francisco, Port
land, Seattle and Coos bay."
He spoke of the situation of the city
of Lew is ton and stated that ho expect
ed to live to see the day wehn it would
have an open waterway to the sea and
the products of Idaho would float on
the bosom of the Snake and Columbia
to the Pacific and the commercial ports
of the world.
The governor stated that he would do
all in his power to further the move
ment and that some action should be
taken at once before the one line which
dominated the state had secured all the
best valleys and left nothing but those
of second class for a new roa3. He
closed by praising the Commercial club
and the citizens of Boise and stated
they would all understand the real
meaning of hospitality before they re
turned home. His address was well
received and he was given hearty ap
plause at the close.
GIVE RIGHT OF WAY.
Secretary of Interior Opens Route for
Central Oregon Road.
Washington, Feb. 27. The Harri-
man railroad will be built up the Des
chutes river to a connection at Kla
math Falls with the road now building
northward to that point and the right
of way will be approved by Secretary
Garfield before next Thursday. These
facts were brought out' at a hearing
before the secretary of the interior
It was stated by a representative of
E. H. Harriman that out of the $82,
000,000 raised by bonds recently float
ed by the Harriman system for new
railroad construction, $40,000,000 had
been set aside for the construction of a
railroad up the Deschutes river into
Central Oregon, terminating at Bend
and for an extension of the new Shasta
division, now nearing Klamath Falls,
northward to meet the Deschutes road
at Bend, thus completing a new route
from San Francisco to the Columbia
The construction of the Deschutes
road will be commenced, it was Baid.
as soon as the secretary of the interior
approves the right of way application,
and Secretary Garfield said he expect
ed to do this before he leaves office
next Thursday. He is waiting only
the adjustment of a few minor details.
as outlined yesterday, and knows of
nothing that will likely delay his action
All material obstacles that have here
tofore delayed the approval of maps of
location of the Deschutes road have
Check Traffic in Opium.
Shanghai, Feb. 27. The Interna
tional Opium commission has virtually
completed its work here by the adop
tion of nine resolutions suggesting
means of fighting the opium traffic.
The commission declared that unre
stricted morphine traffic constituted a
grave danger, and that the morphine
habit showed signs of spreading, and
urged upon all governments the im
portance of drastic measures to control
tho manufacture, sale and distribution
of morphine and other noxious deriva
tives of opium. ,
Treasure of Guerilla Days.
. Danville, Ky.. Feb. 27. Buried
-treasure comprising $22,500 in gold
and silver coin, $3,000 worth of dia
monds, a revolver and several thousand
dollars in Confederate money was louna
today by H. S. Hensly and Albert Paw
Joy in an old residence of the late Nath
'an Ross, near Paint Lick. Tho treas
ro was hidden during gueriija warfare
time, when "One-armed" Sam Berry
an&his gang terrorized the inhabitants
of Central Kentucky.
REDUCES REBATE FINES.
Judge Anderson Makos Possible Max
Chicago, Feb. 26. A reduction from
Judgo Land is' fine of $29,240,000 to
posaiblo maximum fine of $720,000 is
admitted to bo tho meaning of a ruling
mado today by Judgo Anderson in tho
retrial of tho Standard Oil company of
Indiana for rebating. The ruling waa
informal, but it almost certainly wi
Tho Court of Appeals in ruling out
Judge Land la' great lino eliminated tho
viow that each carload of oil on which
a rebate was accepted constituted
separate offense. Thero wore 1,462 of
these carloads, tho freight charges for
which were paid in 86 diffcrnent set
Judgo Anderson interpreted the de
cision, which, he said, Borved as h
guide, to imply that tho rebates ac
ceptcd after each of tho 86 settlements
constituted the units of offenso.
Judge Anderson's ruling was a so
vero blow to District Attorney Sims
He and his assistant, James H. Wil
kerson, had argued that each of the
500 shipments, making possible a max
imum of $10,000,000, constituted nn
offense. This view Judgo Anderson
declared ho could not understand. He
saw no reason why, if a trainload or
carlot were regarded as a separate
offense, the matter might not be fur
ther divided, making a hundredweight
or a gallon, a unit, greatly increasing
tho number of offenses and magnify'
ing the punishment.
Mr. Wilkerson argued that tho fin
possible under the court's ruling would
serve merely as a license to a great
corporation. On this Judge Anderson
said in effect:
"That is a consideration which has
no weight with me whatever. I am
not concerned with the effectiveness of
the statutes, but with their interpreta'
tion and application. If the view that
I have taken has the effect you stated
that is a matter for tho lawmakers to
consider. If the laws are inadequate,
get them to supply a remedy."
TROUBLE IS FEARED.
Unrest Prevails at Trial of Calhoun
in San Francisco.
San Francisco, Feb. 26. There is an
undercurrent of unrest at the Calhoun
trial. Various reports are heard every
day to the effect that trouble is mo
mentarily expected. Heney and hiB
bodyguards are on the alert all the
time, and no person comes into the
courtroom who is not carefully scroti
The examination of Holzberg, which
was to have been continued this morn
ing, was postponed until this after
ooon, so that his ex-partner, Parry
Kallman, who is a witness for the
prosecution, could be produced in court.
The prosecution claimed that Kallman
would testify that Holzberg said when
he heard of the shooting of Heney by
Haas that if he had been Haas h
would have done the same thing. It
has further developed that Holzberg is
a ptockholder in the united Railroads,
This alone is taken as being sufficient
ground for his disqualification.
The morning session was slow. Dur
ing the first hour and a half Judge
Lawlor examined a new venire of 0,
and retained 35 for examination by
SEES WAR AHEAD.
Russia Expects Austria Will Invade
Servia in Fortnight.
fat Petersburg, neb. 26. The pes
simism with regard to the Balkan cri
sis is steadily increasing in diplomatic
circles, where it is believed that Aus
tria's action against Servia may bo
expected within a fortnight unless a
solution to the present grave problem
is soon arranged.
Foreign office officials state that
Russia is not disposed to consider an
invasion or servia aione as a casus
belli, but there is fear that the gov
ernment's hapd may be forced by pop
ular feeling. The beginning of hostil
itics" will throw thousands of Russian
volunteers into the Servian "ranks.

Tried to Get Graft Photo.
Pittsburg, Feb. 26. At the trial of
Councilmen Klein, WaBson and Brand
and Banker Ramsey on charges of con
spiracy, growing out of the recent
graft charges, Detective T. S. Huff-
ling testified that he had seen Detec
tive Wilson pay William Brand, presi
dent of the common council, and Coun
cilman Klein each $500 to influence
their support for legislation. Detec
tive Huffling told how he had also seen

Now Orleans, Feb. 26. A. P. Scheli,
special United States inspector, who
recently ran down tho alleged Chinese
smuggling conspiracy on the Gulf coast.
declared his disbelief in the report that
the Chinese were sent in a government
