"This work la a part of the contract

of the tunnela opened before It encoun
tered financial trouble. This contract
extended from Uraln 14 mllea weatward
and Included a large amount of earth
work and tunnela."
Mr. Hansen said there Is practically
nothing doing In tunnel work at the pres
ent time. Contractors Cole Sweenv,
who subcontracted from the Loss com
pany, are camped at tunnela 1 and
T. J. Owana, another subcontractor, is
camped at tunnel No. a. They are
availing action by the Southern Pacific
company to proceed with the boring.
A crew of Southern Paciflo engineers
' are In camp at Elkton and are running
lines west from that point. From ap
pearances the survey Is not finally lo-
: cated. It waa at one time regarded aa
complete, but the field notea and other
data were destroyed in the San Fran
Cisco fire and It la now necessary "to
make all turveys over again, which may
result In some changes..
"The country through which the line
runs to Elkton Is a fins agricultural
and fruit region," said Mr. Hansen.
"There are prune orchards, grain fields
and much good timber. Toward Scots

the river are several successful salmon

Work , on - the consolidated railroad
lines embracing tha Med ford aV Crater
Lake railroad and the Rogue River Val

Ledge, will be delayed a few weeks on
account of complications arising from
suspension of the Oregon Trust aV Bar
tngs bank, but it is aald this , tempo
rary setback will not seriously affeot
the enterprise. Considerable delay has
been experienced from lack of laborers
and Inability to secure supplies .from
the east, and any settlement in con
nection with the bank will therefore be
not seriously Cstlt. -'
-It . Is said the company carried a de
posit of working capital amounting to
about 140,000 In the suspended bank,
and this sum will be tied up a faw
weeka pending a settlement by the re
ceiver. - Should a settlement be not
reached by ths time tho-road la ready
to continue construction, additional cap
ital will be forthcoming from the fi
nanciers bsck of the project to extend

"There Is plenty of money where ths
first capital cams from for this enter

torney for the company, when asked
to . state . the condition of Its affairs
relative to the bank suspension. "We
are not troubled in the least as to the
outcome of the bank matter so far as
it concerns the rallroadf- But little pro

A strange turn was given the Inquiry
today when there appeared a witness In

wife of Mr. Venderbllt that amased ths

that the publication of the name would
be regarded as contempt' of court and

Identity Is tearaea.
It wae not until near the end of the
afternoon session that ber identity be
came known. Then it was learned that
shs was Miss Caroline Boynton UarrU.
IS years old, of New fork.
The attorneys rfor Mrs. Pspper and
Vanderbilt made vigorous objection to
the introduction of the woman's testl
monv. but Mr. Rosenberg said he would
prove by the witness that Mrs. Pepper
was a woman or Dad cnaraoter, ana tns
commission admitted It.
The woman in blue said sh had first
met Mrs. Pepper In 1804 and had been
quit intimate with her. She Identified
a photograph shown her showing Mrs.
Permer in sn unconventional Dose. -
the witness .then testified that sh
had often seen J. Edward Allan, a mar
ried man of Providence, in company
with Mrs. Pspper. The witness said
that Allen, who was a man about (0
years old, told her he had made a will
In which he left all .his property to
Mrs. Pepper and that mt had given her

Ths woman In blue teatlfled that sh
also saw Mrs. Pepper in the company
of a man named Markwell and of an
other old man named Wells, who seemed
to have an .earthly affection for the

Continuing her testimony the Strang
witness described a fight that took
f lace between May Pepper and her sls
er, Hattls Bcannel, the latter charging
that her unfortunate poaltlon in life waa
due to the example and teachings of
Mrs. Pepper. The medium resented this
assertion and a fist fight followed be
tween the sisters.
Mrs. Pepper, ths witness said, told
her sh did not believe in th Bible
nor In marriage and. according to the
witness, declared that she wsnted no
married life, but would Ilk som nice
old man with lot of money.

a woman called on Mrs. Pepper to get
some spirit Information as to her di
vorce case, and Mrs. Pepper said rfh
hoped the details would be highly
spiced, ss Bright Eyss was very fond of
that sort of stuff.

said, told her shs believed sh had th
right to lovs ss many men as shs
