TWO MEN DKOWXEI).
Women and Children Reftcned From
South Bend, Wash.- 1. A. Lucas,
aged 51. who lives In Lake county,
California, and J. W. Rennels, aged
52, 217 East Fourth street, Albany,
Ore., were drowned and five others
had miraculous escapes from death
when a launch in which they were
riding Sunday struck a submerged
fishtrap piling in Bear river straits.
The rescue of two women and two
small children by F. A. Lucas, broth
er of one of the drowned men and
one of the owners of the townsite,
was as heroic as it was sensational,
Rennels and I. A. Lucas were seat
ed in the stern of the boat when it
struck and both were precipitated
into the water, in the widest part of
the straits, two miles south of the
town of Chetlo Harbor and away
from any available help. The two
men began to swim for a mud flat
250 feet away. When about 50 feet
from the mud flats Rennels sank.
Lucas reached the flats and started
for Chetlo, but fell into a slough and
As soon as the launch 'struck, and
F. A. Lucas, a brother, took In the
situation, he swam to the mud flats
and wawed in mud kneedeep to the
shore, then raced over the sharp
stones for three miles, barefooted
and naked, scaling a bluff and climb
ing through slashings to the mill,
where the rowboat was anchored.
It was then a pull of two miles
back to wnere the launch was pin
ioned with its human freight. Stead
ily the tide kept rising and each min
ute brought the two women, Mrs. F.
A. Lucas and her sister, Mrs. H. C.
Courter, and her two children, Lo
leta, 9, and Kermit, 7, of Portland,
nearer their doom.
As the water rose the women boost
ed the children a little higher up on
the bow of the boat and later upon
the nose of the launch. All the time
they kept their composure, the little
girl and boy praying that their uncle
might return in time.
In the distance, two miles away,
they saw Lucas land safely upon the
wharf. The children waved to him,
and he was encouraged. Faster and
faster he rowed and faster and faster
the tide kept rising until it had sub
merged the women and children to
their necks, when, exhausted and
bleeding from his terrible race over
stones and through slashings, Lucas
reached the Imperiled women and
children. They were safely taken off
and returned to Chetlo Harbor.
Lucas' 'feet, legs and body are a
mass of cuts and bruises. The water
was dragged all night by men who
came from Chetlo Harbor and other
adjoining towns. Rennells had come
north to take charge of some of the
work at the new townsite.

Gamblers Under Arrest in New York
Ieteraiined to Lay Bare Whole
System of Graft.
New York. Hereford Marshall,
counsel for "Jack Sullivan" (Jacob
Reich), the go-between between Po
lice Lieutenant Charles Becker and
Jack Rose, now held in the Tombs
in connection with the murder of the
gambler, Herman Rosenthal, an
nounced Tuesday morning Sullivan
was ready to tell all he knew on the
witness stand, and that his story
would prove more astounding than
any yet told. Sullivan, he said,
would not talk to either the police
or the district attorney.
The Indictment and arrest of Beck
er for the murder of Rosenthal, soon
after the confessions of "Bald Jack"
Rose, "Bridgie" Webber -and Harry
Vallon, revealed to District Attorney
Whitman the "police system" in all
"Bald Jack" Rose confessed that
Becker came to him and, fairly des
perate over Rosenthal's intention of
telling all he knew of his relations
with the police lieutenant, said:
"Rosenthal has lived too long. He
has got to be put out of the way."
Rose told the public prosecutor
and the grand jury how the murder
band was hired at the instigation of
Becker, and that after the killing
Becker met Webber and himself
promised complete police protection.
The confessions show that the mur
derers, members of the notorious
"Big Jack" Selig gang, plied them
selves with liquor and then went out
to shoot Rosenthal for a price said to
Terror-stricken, Rose, Webber and
Vallon spent Monday night in the
public prosecutor's office, fearing
that they would be murdered if they
were taken to the Tombs prison. Dis
trict Attorney Whitman believes his
case against Lieutenant Becker is
without flaw; that the confessions,
taken separately, dovetailed, and
from the testimony of other witnesses
the case against Becker cannot be I
"Bald Jack" Rose, gambler, who
says he was Becker's gambling house
collector, felt the ground slipping
from under him day by day. With
out money or friends, he realized
that he was being made to bear the
weight of the crime. His counsel ad
vised him to confess. Rose became
completely terrified. To his counsel,
James M. Sullivan, he said:
"If you see to it that my wife and
children are protected, I'll come
across and tell the truth about this.
I am afraid it will be the end of me.
No cell on earth can be strong
enough to keep the life in a man who
gives up about this killing."
Intimations were made to Rose
that an Indictment might be expect
ed against him, and then he con
fessed. Counsel for Webber and Vallon.
catching the drift of things, also ad
vised their clients to tell the truth
and become immune.
Rose told District Attorney Whit
man that for a long time he had
been Becker's gambling house col
lector; that Becker, as head of the
gambling house squad, smelled out
profitable Vaees. and that each
month collections were made Becker
did not get all the money, Ros;e says,
but some of it was distributed to
Rosenthal was a thorn in Becker's
side. Becker had pressed Rosenthal
to the wall, according to Rose, and
he threatened to "make things pub
lic." Six weeks before the killing. Rose
says, Becker sent for him and said
Rosenthal must be made away with.
Rose says he went out and saw
"Big Jack" Selig to make a deal for
his gunmen. Selig was under indict
ment for carrying concealed weapons
and the possibility of a stay in Sing
Sing prison did not appeal to him.
Consequently, Rose says, when a
promise was made to see that noth
ing happened when Selig came to
trial, there was no trouble getting
All the gunmen were Informed to
be ready to kill Rosenthal, who in
the meantime had been shadowed
day and night. A few days before
the killing, Rose says, he met Web
ber and Becker, and while the three
were talking it over Becker said to
"This job has got to be done and
Rose says they won't do it Tor him.
Now, Bridgie, you can get it done.
They all know you. You have got
the money and I have got the power,
I'll protect everybody."
Of the real murderers, Rose says:
"These poor devils did not know
what they were doing. They were
full of booze. They had been told to
kill and they went out and did what
they" were told."
Webber and Vallon in their confes
sions supplied many missing links in
the confession of Rose. Speaking of
Becker and his alleged connection
with gambling, Rose said:
"Why, of course, 1 was Becker's
collector. Everybody knew it."
Accident on Ocean Disables' Vessel
Boston. More than 300 returning
excursionists from Maine resorts
went through an ocean accident off
the New Hampshire coast amid fog
and darkness early today, when the
wheel steamer City of Rockland,
from Kennebec river for Boston, hud
her bow crumpled in a collision with
the collier Chisholm. The bulk
heads kept the Rockland afloat while
the fast Chisholm swung alongside
and enabled the passengers to be
transferred to the collier without
loss of life. At dawn the stetanier

THE OREGON ONION.
Com all is Senior Gives Information
on Soil and Fertilization'.
Corvallis. Although, onions win
grow in a large variety of soils, they
thrive best in a rich, mellow soil,
with plenty of moisture. Just what
fertilizers and soil treatment to use
is explained by J. C. Leody of Sher
wood, one of this year's seniors at
the Oregon Agricultural College, in
an article on "Soils and Fertilizers
for Onions" in the Oregon Country
man, published by the 6tudents.
"For commercial onion growing in
Oregon the beaver meadows are prac
tically the only ones given considera
tion, says Mr. Leedy. "These lands
are located mostly in Washington.
Clackamas and Marion counties.!
Theoretically these lands have re- I
Rllltari frnm Vw, ....... J . if
,,, ucoitis umuing up
streams and outlets to Ink
the name; but nature has played a
use pan in tne soil formation, in
many cases without the aid of beav
ers.". After a detailed description of the
soil and an analysis of certain kinds
of onions, Mr. Leedy continues:
"Barnyard manure is almost indis
pensable in the production of onions
in any except the beaverdam soils,
and is more used than any other fer
tilizer even on these soils. Indeed,
there is no fertilizer so well adapted
to the production of onions as a lib
eral amount of clean, well-composed
barnyard manure. It is important
that all stable manure used on onion
land be well rotted before applied to
the soil, in order that the weed seeds
may lose their germinating powers,
and that the danger of disease at
tacking the onions may be lessened.
A heavy application of fresh manure
may produce an overgrowth of tops
at the expense of the bulbs, and is
sure to bring in a large amount of
weed seed, increasing the cost of
weeding. It is difficult to make the
soil too rich for onions, provided the
manures are well incorporated with
the soil. The usual amounts, how-'
elve tons to the
e plowing n the
wed with the disc
evar, are ten or tw
acre, applied before
fall, fcnd then harrowed
before planting in the spring
"Where enough manure is not pro
duced on the farm, and where it
cannot be secured profitatbly from a
nearby city, commercial fertilizers
must be resorted to. They can sup
plement stable manure profitably,
especially on the beaverdam soils, al
ready rich in organic matter. In
some instances commercial fertilizers
are used exclusively with good re
sults. One great advantage over sta
ble manure is the fact of reducing
the weeds to a minimum, thus less
ening the expensive production. A
higher Initial cost than stable ma
nure tends to offset the disadvant
ages in weeding. As it is an inten-1
sive crop, yielding large amounts of
bulbs to the acre, growers are justi
fied in manuring heavily."

Monday during the close of the ses

connection with organized labor as

He spoke of his dealings with Mrs.
McManigal and George Behm, uncle
of McManigal, and said he asked
Behm to find out from McManigal
whether the stories printed in the
newspapers purporting to come from
him were true, and ' he said to tell
McManigal if they were not he would
defend him also. Darrow said he
never had a conversation with Berm j

to change his testimony.
Getting down to the present case,
Darrow in response to a question de
