So Will Come to Oregon.
SA1.KM. March .V Senator Gearin
will return home immediately to regis
ter. Some of his friends discovered Satur
day that in nil probability objection
would be made to his name going on the
ollieial primary election ballot, for the
reason that he was not a registelvd
voter as the law reipiires. This objec
tion was to have been made, so it was
hinted, at the' lust moment, so that it
would have been impossible for him to
come to Oregon in time to correct the
His registration in Washington by a
special deputy clerk will not hold in
case it should be questioned, so some
of the Senator's legal friends advie.
That there may W no quest ion., and
that his petition for the Senatorial nom
ination may be circulated and filed
with the Sccivtary of State on or before
March :10th. he has decided to register a
second time, in Oregon.

fession clears up the mystery surroun i
ing the disappearance of J. W. Harney,

miner, during the trouble at Tellurid?
in 11)02. What Adams told is not known

Sends Deacon Instead of Doctor
to Aid Sick Woman.
Neighbors Hear Woman's Outcries and
Notify Police, Who Send Doctor
to Her Relief Authorities
Had Right to Interfere.
CHICAGO, March 4. According to the
opinion of Corporation Counsel Lew is the
city health authorities are justified in
forcibly interfering in cases of extreme
sickness where the seiices of a physician
aro refused. Mrs. F.lla Turner, one of
Howie's followers, was suffering for
over twenty-four hours and her life
was in imminent peril and her condition
called for an immediate operation. In
stead of calling a physician, one of
Dowie's deacons was sent to pray for
her. 'flic woman's pains increased so
much that her outcries attracted the
neighbors, who reported to the police.
The health aulhorties appealed to the
city's counsel for adiee and as a result
of which a physician attended the wom
an and her siitVei'ing was stopped.
