Mrs. Cannon," Her Son and

When End Came.
Mrs. A. fihouldlce, of Ban. Ffanclsco,
now visiting Mrs. W.M. Kapua In this
rlty, who was a room-mat of Mra. and
Mlsg Cannon., says that the last ah saw
or mem on me iiumoii was wnvu me
three mother, son and daughter were
standing on tUo . deck .with Jhelr arme
about each other. Miss Cannon was tbu
first In the stateroom to get up, and had
put on her wrapper and wag looking put
of the door waiting for her brother,
after th first" shock-of the collision bad
awakened the ra.. A man came by and
said there was no danger, but in a mo
ment m "cabin boy came ahoutlng to all
to hurry and get on life preservers,
Mlaa Cannon helped her mother to
gt up and Mra Shouldlce Is sure that
Mrs. Cannon had on a life preserver,
end bad it en" right, .Mlaa Cannon told
her afterward, when they were In the
earn hotel at Eureka,- that It was the
force oi the explosion which threw them
all off Into the water, where they were
separated. She Is -herself, she says not
able to tell anything about that, for she
was In th lifeboat being rowed to th
San Pe4ro, and In the darkneas and the
crowded boat she could not see .what
Just beiore they rowed off Mrs. Shoul
dice saw the rear of the Columbia high
ebov them like a hill; th forward end
was already- under -water. On h San
Pedro th crew and th captain did all
that they possibly could, but the ex
perience was fearful. The were on th
rear of the boat first, then when that end
aank Into th water and the waves were
washing over them they clambered onto
a pile of lumber and sat there shivering
the rest of th night until th Elder
cam along about I o'clock In th morn
ing. , ..... .. v ..
Those who were brought on absolutely
nude and th unconscious were wrapped
in blankets and put Into th berths. All
who sai there on the lumber In the dark
ness, wet to the skin, slightly cold and
most of them seaxlrk, tried to be brave
and hopeful, bat when the lights went
out on toe Ban reuro, nop was at a

1 Tit -stewardess of th Columbia was
badly hurt when the mast fell on the
Man Pedro, and ah was taken to th
hospital when they reached Eureka.
Mra Shouldlce say that too much can
not be a a. a n praise of the care and
atte.itlon they were given In Eureka. A
committee . of relief waa formed; one
young laay gave Mra snouidice a puree,
and a man whose name she does . not
know put 15 Into It.
Of' the kindness of passengers and
orew on th Elder, too, she speaks most
enthusiastically. Some wealthy ladies
from Los Angeles .divided all their ex
tra clothing that they had with them
among the sufferers, and th stewardess
end crew worked heroically to resusci
tate ...e injured and to make th other
' ''It waa a fearful experlenne," said
Mra. "houldlc. ."but my part of it was
tnatgnlnrant compared to that of some.
I lost all my clothing and money, of
course. In the scramble and confusion
of getting into th boats I tried to tak
a In. Us boy with me. but he lay down
on the deck and cried for' 'mamma' so

Secretary Garfield and Fran.
cis J: Heney to Attempt at
San Francisco to Straight
: en Out Oregon's Tangled
Land Situation. -v ;
. Oregon's tangled land fraud trial situation-
will be straightened out before
ths week i over by a conference be
tween ' Francis1 J. "Heney and Secretary
of h Interior 'Oarfleld -at .San Fran
cisco. Th secretary Is now In tha Bay
City and will hold an extended con
ference -with Mr. Heney, 1 at which 1 It
will be definitely determined whether or
not th trials will b resumed- at one
in Oregon, whether. Thomas. B. Neuhau
sen and 'his assistants' from tbe -land
of flc department will; return, to the
federal . building to assist ths "district
attorney In ths preparation of tbetland
cases -and a number of other detail
which are now vary -much In th fog.
Th. conference Is the result of .the
recent visit of the secretary to Portland,
at which tlm h went Into the land
trial situation with Olatriot - Attorney
Bristol and became .convinced of the
extreme. congestion of ease In Portland
and the need of sora hnmedlat action
being taken. - ...
During the past week a eonrerenoe
waa held between Mr. Bristol and Judge
Wolverton in regard to th future trial
now ponding In th federal court At
that time It wa decided .by th coutt
that no Jury, would be called before tbe
first Monday In October for- the trial
of any criminal caaea put upon th
docket by th action of th last grand
Jury. This delay was agreed upon be
cause of tha busy harvest season pre-
ya-ujnafltrtjMaignoujt.inestaie just at
.thUrtiAaud i4.iellng on th part
of theJcouVt thatltVould b an Injus
tice to th juryman to be required to
corns to-th -city- and wait long, days
wnu cases were oeing wieov - -A
different declalon was reached In
renrrf to ratlins- a -arand lurv or iurv
for the trial of th pending land fraud
cases, however, It being determined that
either of these Juries would be called by
the court aa aoon as th department of
luetic .decided It was ready.' for th
Th way la open therefor for an Im
mediate reaumptlon of the land caaea
In the event that the conference between
Mr. Heney and Secretary Garfield re
sult in such a determination.
Th hands of th district attorney
seem to have, been tied In so far -as
any land fraud prosecution If concerned.
It has been the general supposition
that T. B. Neuhausen, special Inspector
ef the Interior department and hla men
who assisted Mr. Heney In. bis land
fraud investigation and triala, has been
working In -conjunotion with th dis
trict attorney" of flc for th past year
In preparing land caaea for trial. -This
however. Is not th case, as It haa been
nearly a year sines the two offices have
worked In harness; None, of the cases
which hav been followed up by th
Inspector's office and prepared for sub
mission to the grand Jury have been
turned over to 'the district -attorney's
offlc for his action.
Mr. Neuhausen baa - been transferred
to ths custom house and la now work
ing entirely separata from -the district
attorney's office. The question of
whether of not he and his men will be
sent back to collaborate with th dis
trict' attorney during the pending eases
ls another matter which will . be deter
mined - at - the -oenferenea 4o be held
within th next two days tn San Fran
