MARSHFIELD, OREGON, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1907.
Dispute With Daughter Re
garding Her Name Costs
RESIDENT OF MARSHFIELD
Bailey Was at One Time Partner of
James Ferry lit Blanco
Ten thousand dollars will change
hands, according to the daughter of
Steve Bailey, the wealthy mining and
realty man of Seattle, formerly of
Spokane, and It will change from her
father's hands into her own fair
hands when a program of the Ladles'
Matinee Muslcale of Spokane arrives
with the "Stephanie Bailey" thereon.
On the name "Stephanie" hinges
the transfer of the cash, and if Steve
makes good his offer and he usu
ally does he will soon be $10,000
poorer, for Miss Bailey played a
harp solo for the Ladles Matinee
Muslcale, and on the program,
printed letters, her namo appears
The banter, according to informa
tion gleaned from Spokane friends,
arose one day at dinner, when Mr.
Bailey and his talented daughter,
now Mrs. Schnecker, failed to agree
on her right to possession of the
"Wlen did you take the name
Stephanie, my dear?" said Mio
father. "It must be something you
picked up when abroad."
.Insists Nnme Is Hers.
"I have always had the name,"
rejoined his daughter, who thought
she ought to know.
Father still insisted that ho knew
the name of his own daughter.
"Why, I was known as Stephanie
Bailey In Spokane years ago," the
daughter went on. "My name ap
peared on the program of a recital
by the Ladles' Matinee Muslcale and
if a copy of that program can be
found I will prove It to you."
"Produce the program and I will
give you $10,000 if it proves your
statement," was the reply of Mr.
Bailey, according to the information
given by his daughter to friends she
commissioned to find the program.
Thus was the compact made.
Now on the next day Mrs. Sch
necker, nee Miss Bailey, being an en
terprising woman, wrote to William
H. Smiley of 530 Peyton building,
who had been her father's counsel In
bygone days, giving him directions as
to how he could obtain the necessary
proof. So, after a few days exhaus
tive search of old records and files,
he came upon a program of a musl
cale given by an organization, known
as the Ladles' Matinee Muslcale, now
the Wagner club. It was a program
of a concert given on the afternoon
of December 28, 189G, and at about
the middle of the program appears
the announcement of a harp selec
tion, with the name plainly set forth
Miss Stephanie Bailey.
Only One Program Evists.
This old program, the only one In
existence, was pasted to a page in a
hook of programs kept by a member
of the club, and was clipped out, leaf
and all, by the lawyer, who then se
cured affidavits from two women
who took part in the program
who pprHflprt to ltd nuthfentlcitv and
toheTac tXfthfnSSWSn SS
nrmrnn. wn thnt. hv whio.h Miss
the program was that by which Miss
Bailey was known.
Today the program, the affidavits,
and some newspaper clippings con
firming them will bo sent to Mrs.
Schnecker at Eugene, and It will
then be up to papa, who, being
known as a man of his word in mat
ters of this kind, Is confidently ex
pected to come through with a check
for the required amount.
Miss Bailey a Musician.
While the Baileys were in Spo
kane Miss Bailey was almost as well
known for her musical activities a
was her father for his betting pro
clivities and his eccentricities in
backing his own judgment with largo
sums of money. In the state election
of 1904 he backed George Turner for
governor, losing an amount sup
posed to have been close to $30,000
on the result of the election. Whllo
election bets were his strong point,
ho would bet on almost anything
that excited his Interest, usually
coming out ahead. After moving
from this city to Seattle he made n
good deal of money in Seattle real
His daughter married Profesor
Schnecker, a teacher of the harp in
a Now England conservatory of
mu&ic. They moved to tho east.
Mrs. Schnecker is uo.v teaching
music In the Oregon college town.
Mr. Bailey was a former resident
of Coos county and, with James
Ferrey, opened the Blanco hotel In
187 4. They were partners for the
ensuing eight years, when Mr. Bailey
went to Seattlo and took charge of
the New England hotel, which fu
ture prover remunerative, and gave
him a good financial start. Mr.
Ferrey, who visited the Lewis and
Clark exposition In 1905, roadj a trio
to Seattle purposely to see Mr. Bailey

Vienna, Oct. 14. After visit
ing the emperor tonight, the
doctors gave out the following
statement: Catarrh continues;
cough Is stronger; fever is less;
nourishment taken Is sufficient;
general condition not unsatisfactory.
During the visit, Mr. Bailey slid he
had been succetpful and had accu
mulated property worth at a low es
timate, $500,000. Before going into
the Blanco venture, Mr. Billey was
cooking in a logging camp on Haines
Inlet, but thought he saw a better
opportunity in the hotel business and
so prevailed on Mr. Ferrey to join
him. Among the properties which
Mr. Bailey now owns Is a large block
in Seattle and also a block
in Portland. The Blanco at the time
Messrs.-Bailey and Ferrey took it was
a structure 24x40, and was at the
border of what was then mud flats.
STARVING MAN EATS
Xativcs of Labrador's Wasto Made
Desperate by Cold and
Winnipeg, Man., Oct. 14. J. A.
Osborne, the veteran editor of the
Fort Francis Times, has just arrived
from a trin of exploration around
' the shores of James Bay and brings
with him wonderful tales. Were the
stories told by Osborne related to
any one else, they would be set
down as false, but Osborne's record
for veracity stamps them as unde
niable. At Moose Factor Osborne met a
young man who had fled in terror of
his uncle, who had killed and eaten
eight human beings. At the same
place he saw a woman who killed
and ate her two children owing to
the great scarcity of food, brought
on by the absence of deer and rab
bits. From other reports he re
ceived, Osborne Is of . the opinion
that cannibalism is practiced openly
among the Indians nnd half breeds
In the northern portions of Canada
between James bay and Labrador.
Last winter a frightful tragedy
overtook a Cree village located on
Main river. The snow was excep
tionally cold and excessively severe,
even for that country. As the wint
er advanced the snow became deeper
and game became scarcer. ' For days
together not a rabbit could be found.
The Indians in this village virtually
starved to death by degrees with the
exception of some" young men and
women, who decided to attempt to
make Hudson Bay Fort, 150 miles
down the river. After a terrible
journey they arrived at their des
tination and told of the fate of the
village, but tho relief expedition sent
out found nothing but thirteen
Two brothers killed another hunt
er disguised as a bear. Relatives of
the dead man went out and killed
five members of tho slayer's family
In revenge. Friends then took up
tho case and wiped out the family
of murderers, and in all thirteen
people lost their lives as the result
of an unfortunate accident.

FISH HOT ON
Enjoins Voting of Stock at
Wednesday's Meeting of
I. C. Shareholders.
ALLEGES BIG CONSPIRACY
Claims Harriman Seeks Monopoly of
South and West Traffic, Against
Chicago, Oct. 14. Stuyvesant
Fish, through "his attorneys, today se
cured a, temporary Injunction, which
If made permanent, will restrain the
voting at the Illinois Central meet
ing on Wednesday of 286,731 shares
of stock of the Illinois Central which
would otherwise bo voted In the in
terest of E. H. Harriman. The writ
is directed against the Union Pacific
railroad, the Railroad Securities com
pany of New Jersey and the Mutual
Life Insurance company, which corn
bind, hold the above shares of stock,
In addition to the temporary injunc
tion sought, a final decree was asked
that the Union Pacific and Railroad
Securities company have no power
under the laws of Illinois to own
stock in the Illinois Central? It Js
also asked that these companies be
directed to sell their stock within a
Illegal to Vote Stock.
Tho petition charges an unlawful
scheme of the Union Pacific to con
trol the commerce of tho United
States by buying large blocks In
prominent transportation companies
which own and operate parallel lines,
both in and outside of Illinois. It Is
charged that It Is unlawful for tho
Union Pacific to own and vote stock
In such parallel and competing lines.
It is charged that in an effort to con
trol the Illinois Central that the
Union Pacific acquired stock of the
Railroad Securities company, whose
only asset Is 95,000 shares of Illinois
Central stock- It is charged that
15,000 shares of this stock was trans
ferred to Harriman and 18 employes
of Harriman whom he controls by a
sham transaction. The bill declares
that Directors Peabody, Auchlnloss
and Vanderbllt of the Illinois Central
are trustees of tho Mutunl Life In
surance company and have combined
and conspired with Harriman nnd
the Union Pacific to aid the Union
Pacific in getting control of tho Illi
nois Central and to that end propose
to vote 5,500 shares owned bv the In
surance' company at tho coming elec
tion. It Is claimed that under the
laws of Insurance of Illinois, an In
surance company cannqt vote stock
In the Illinois Central. It Is alleged
In tho petition that the object of the
Union Pacific is to perfect and per
petuate its control of the directorate
of tho Illinois Central so as to have
the Illinois Central operated to its
irreparable. damage, as 'a, me'rer feeder
to the Union Pacific through Its con
nections at Council Bluffs and at
New Orleans 'to the Southern Pacific
which the petition alleges the Union
Pacific controls absolutely.
Proxies Sent to Fisli
'It Is the law and public policy of
Illlonols that neither the Union Pa
cific Railroad securities or the- Mu
tual Life can own and vote stock In
the Illinois Central. It Is believed
that Harriman friends tomorrow
will seek destruction of the injunc
tion and it Is not possible at this
time to state whether the argument
will be completed in time to allow
Judge Ball to make a decision before
the day of the annual meeting. Fish
said today, after granting of the
temporary injunction, that he has
all along been setisfled with tho man
ner in which things have been mov
ing.. Ho says ho has never been
obliged to see': proxies and shall not
do so. No one, ho declares, can
fortell the results of the contest,
but that the stockholders both at
homo and abroad aro alive "to tho
situation and are sending their
proxies in by tho hundreds. He says
he has every confidence in tho out
come of tho Injunction or tho pro
ceedings. OKLAHOMA WILL

Vancouver Private Turns Out To
Be Black Sheep of Prominent
John Sharp Williams, Democratic
leader of the house senator-elect
from Mississippi and presidential
possibility, will not have to bear tho
disgrace of having his son an Inmate
of the Washington ponltentary.
Standing up in tho little court
room yesterday afternoon R. W.
Williams, son of the famous Demo
cratic leader, tremblingly listened to
the clerk's reading of the verdict
that meant either vindication or
prison and shame for him.
"We, the jury, find tho defendant,
R. W. Williams, not guilty of pass
ing worthless checks and obtaining
money under false pretenses, ns
named In the complaint,'" read tho
"Quick, let my father know that
its all right," he whispered to his
counsel. Representative C. W. Cush
man of Washington, and tho con
gressman hurried across tho court
house grounds and down to tho tele

vindication to the Senator-electWll-Hams

Until Henry Van Atta, proprietor
of n restaurant frequented by tho
private soldiers stationed at Van
couver barracks appeared at the po
lice station in Vancouver and made
a charge of passing a bad check
against young Williams, no one
guessed the Identity of the well ed
ucated young southerner, prlvato In
Uncle Sam's army.
Van Atta claimed that Williams
had passed a worthless check signed
with his own name and drawn on
tho Vancouver National bank. Ho
said that when he presented young
Williams' check for payment ho was
told by the cashier of the bank that
Williams had no account there.
"I want him arrested and kept in
jail until I can appear against him,"
said Van Attn.
The police went out to the bar
racks and made a demand upon tho
commandant for Williams. Ho was
turned over to them and placed In
jail under charge of Sheriff Snap
plngton. Then It was that the prisoner told
the sheriff that his father was Sena
tor Williams of Mississippi, and
asked permission to communicate
with him and ask him ror neip to
get out of tho scrape.
Father Answers Wire.
Although ho doubted tho talo told
by the soldier the sheriff gave him
permission to telegraph the Demo
cratic leader. Great was his surprise
when Representative Cushman of
Washington, a personal friend of
John Sharp Williams, came into tho

As soon as John Sharp Williams
received his son's telegram ho com
