SUIT FOR LIBEL.
(rants Pass Councilman Sues Man
Who Accused Him of Gruff.
Grants Pass., Ore. One of the
most sensational suits filed in the
circuit court in some time is one
brought by Ernest Everton, a mem
ber of the city council, against Frank
Leet for libel in the sum of $ 10.000.
Some time ago the city council sold
the old city hall to Frank Mashbum,
a leading merchant, for $10,000. and
the complaint alleges that following
the sale, Leet, in the presence of the
plaintiff and others, said that tae
council had given away the city hall,
adding: "There was boodle in it,
and the council got the boodle."
Everton also charges that later in a
barber shop the defendant said:
"You and the rest of the council
stole money and accepted boodle from
Frank .Mashburn in selling him the
city hall for $10,000. You are a set
of grafters. I know that you accept
ed a bribe."
Leet is also accused of having
charged that the buyer of the city
hall had offered $19,500 for the
property, and that the difference be
tween the bid and the $10,000 paid
to the city was grafted by the plain
tiff and his associates.
Both men are socialists and in the
employ of the Southern Pacific, Ever
ton being an engineer and Leet a sec
tion foreman. I.et owns one of the
finest ranches in southern Oregon,
considerable business property in
Grants Pass, and has quite a sum out
There has been considerable talk
that the city council sold the city
hall too cheap, but there had been no
intimation of graft, and the case will
be watched with considerable inter
est, as many prominent people will
be brought into the case. Leet has
transferred all his property to bis
wife, but not until after the com
plaint was filed.

Orville Wright are overruled by the
board of directors of the Wright
Company, the secret plans of the late
Wilbur Wright, father of aviation, to

was announced at the offices of the

a conference with Orville Wright.

not greater, importance than the

The county registration books have
been open twice and closed for a

on the rolls.

STEEL AND CRATER LAKE.
Why ( ongress Did Not .Make Appro,
pi-iatioii fop Roads.
Will C. Steel submits a statement
to the Oregonian relativ? to congres
sional appropriations for Crater Lake
roads, which, with certain needless
abuse of the Washington correspond
ent of the Oregonian eliminated, is
"Your Washington correspondent
this morning says that the appropria
tion for roads In the Crater Lake Na
tional Park was rejected because at
a hearing before the committee last
winter, I acknow ledged that our com
pany had a lease for hotels and that
the committee at once concluded that
we wanted roads in the interest of
"Any man of sense knows that con
gress is not going to construct roads
in a national park, unless there is
positive evidence that when finished
there will be suitable hotels to ac
commodate the visitors. In my inter
view with the committee this ground
was thoroughly covered and one of
the first points to be considered was
whether or not there would be hotels
available when these roads were fin
ished. My entile work in the interest
of ('niter Lake for the past many
years was canvassed, and I assured
the committee that we would keep
the hotels a little ahead of the roads,
and if l lie members would come to
the ;nk in l!Ur 1 would guarantee
to satisfy them on that point. "How
ever,' 1 said, "we cannot be expected
to 'i nsti iict expensive hotels unless
there is assurance of first-class
"Such matters are regulated by
the government itself, which grants
leases for a term of years, without
which no man or combination can
secure funds for such improvements,
and the same identical plan applies
to all national parks, and in all the
others similar leases have been
granted and are now in full force.
The members of the appropriations
committee are not fools, even if your
correspondent so supposes. They un
derstand this situation, and appreci
ate the necessities for such regula
tions by the interior department.
"Pardon me for a digression.
There was never one cent spent to
secure the Crater Lake National
Park, that did not come out of my
pocket, and there has never been one
cent spent to develop it in the line
of hotels and other accommodations
that I did not cause to lie invested.
I have been 2S years working on this
proposition. I have been defeated
hundreds of times, but 1 am not a
quitter. If we fail on the matter at
this time, we will be right after it
again next winter. Such efforts are
supported by at least three members
of the president's cabinet and by a
vast majority of the people of Ore
gon, to say nothing of the Oregonian
itself, which has been a tower of
strength, and we propose to get this
appropriation sooner or later." Ore

Re-Running of County Line Presents
Boise, Idaho. The re-running of
a survey between Blaine and Lincoln
counties in this state has developed
the somewhat novel claim that in
stead of being in Lincoln county the
town of Minidoka, the metropolis of
the big government reclamation pro
ject by the same name, is in Blaine
The dispute as to the true location
of the town came up last week when
government surveyors, re-running
surveys near Minidoka to establisn
lines for incoming settlers moving
onto the project surrounding Mini
doka, assert they discovered that the
boundary line between Blaine and
Lincoln counties runs about three
quarters of a mile west of Minidoka
instead of to the east, as had been
believed, with the result that Mini
doka is part and parcel of another
county instead of Lincoln, and in fact
is in Blaine.
In many respects the exact location
of the boundary line between the two
counties is of paramount importance
and the government will make every
effort to establish the permanent
boundary line whether the result
swings Minidoka into another county
or not. Since learning of the dis
covery of the surveyors, Blaine coun
ty has been claiming Minidoka. Lin
coln county refuses to accept the sur
veyor's claim and an Interesting con
test is on to ascertain in which coun
ty Minidoka really is.
Rising above all issues that have
come up since the discovery is that
of the "wet" and "dry." Lincoln
county, in which Minidoka has been
supposed to be, Is "dry." Blaine
county is "wet." There are said to
lie many thirsty people in Minidoka
who welcome the opportunity of get
ting back into "wet" territory again.
Liquor men who have been active
since tlie alleged discovery are said
to have made; all the necessary prep
arations to go into Minidoka with
completely outfitted emporiums to
supply the thirsty.

ANNUAL SCHOOL MEETING.

miiiiler for .lime I 7.
Salem, Ore.. ,1 une 7, 1 912.
To the Patrons of Oregon Schools:
We do not attach sufficient im
portance t( our annual school meet
ing. This year our annual meeting
occurs June IT. On this day one di
rector and the clerk are to be elected
in every school district in Oregon. I
should be very glad, indeed, to find
that many of the Oregon school dis
tricts were making the day of the
annual school meeting an important
occasion, and at the same time tak
inir advantage of being together to
talk over the problems of the schools.
The voting for director and clerk
will take place at the school house.
It should be remembered that women
already have the privilege or suffrage
in school elections. If all the wom
en of the community will pack their
lunch baskets and assemble at the
school house on the morning of June
17, I am confident that the men will
be there also when the sun reaches
the meridian. Of course, the mem
bers of the family under voting age
will have to have dinner, so all will
spread out. their lunches under some
pleasant shade, and enjoy dinner to
gether. After a good dinner till will be in
the right, frame of mind for selecting
the officers and discussing school af
fairs. The patrons will have this op
portunity to investigate the condi
tions of the school house and
grounds and see what repairs are
needed; whether the school house Is
properly heated, lighted and venti
lated, 'and what books and pictures
are most needed. Let us make June
17 a red letter day for our district!
Yours for better schools,
