a thorough investigation of the Interior
department and the general land office,
He eulogised It, R. Glavls, former chief
of the field division of the land office,
who brought charges against Balllnger.
He almost exhausted the supply of
Invectives- In describing' tlie Guggen
heims and their alleged attempts to con
trol the Alaskan mineral fields. He
declared Glavls was discharged ' be
cause ha jealously protected the gov
ernment against frauds. -
The climax of his speech came when
he declared that confidential letters and
copies of secret papers had been freely
given to fraudulent claimants on Alas
kan coal lands. ... v
Beferring to, Glavls, Hitchcock; said:
''1 pity thd helpless subordinate.
forced to choose, between . holding - his
position in silence, and endangering it
by protesting against frauds entrenched
In power and backed by influence."
He severely condemned the rules com
mittee of the houoe for failure to take
definite action.. He said; ,
It baa i been known for .years thtU
gross frauds have been perpetrated In
the puhllrt domain and that, millions. f
aores 'of puhli latijj have been grablt.

propriated $1,000,000 to prevent the
lariy. known about the ' buffets, came

trance and found three women and three
men In the curtained boxes drinking.
Several botlea of beer and glasses of
cocktails were'found befora them.

At the time of the arrest. Sergeant

most damaging testimony yesterday to
jonnson, was that of Louis T rummer.
agent for a St. Louis beer. He testified
that some months he delivered to John

Late developments in the reported
purchase of the Portland Gas company
by the Electric Bond & Share company
of New York remove alt doubt as to
the ultimate transfer of the control of
the .plant to the New York corpora

to consummate the deal being a meeting
of the stockholders of the gas com

One of, the large shareholders In the
local company said this morning that
less tjian 10 per cent' of the stock re

there are $750,000 In B per cent bonds
outstanding and $500,000 In 7 per cent
convertible notes. At $130 a share the
cost of the plant to the New York pur
chasers will amount to $2,535,000. Over

Rapid growth of their business here
Is the. reason given by E. H. Dodge of
tha H. 3. Dodge company of San Fran
cisco, for opening offices In t Portland.
Temporary offices have been opened by
Mr. Dodge In the Lumbermen's building
until permanent quarters can be found,
and he will remain here for the present
as local .manager. ' Ai X . C- ., '.'-.
v Report has It that tho' Dodge com
pany has established local- offices here
In order to compete with, the Richard
son Steamship company, -which runs a
line of steam schooners to Oak street
dock and ha a branch office here, and
it la moro or less borne out by Mr,
Dodge himself. - : .
1 '-'We are going-to do a lumber and
shipping business here," said Mr. .Dodge,
and our steamers "will all run to Couch
street dock. Our business has been In
creasing to such atrextent that we have
found It necessary to open up a local
office to take care Sf It. For tba pres
ent I shall remain here as manager, and
tn a very short time we expect to move
from eur temporary quarter into per
manent ones in this building."' I
"When asked If -their steamers would!
run In connection with -the Richardson
line, Mr. Dodge said that they would
not, but that they would run In connec
tion with the steamers operated by Gray
ft Holt and those of the Pollard line,
and i that they' would land at Couch
street dock. This ia considered as equiv
alent to saying that there wll be a
combine -"Of . these companies, and that
they will, operate In opposition -to the
Richardson . line, which runs between
this port and San Francisco.
The steam schooners owned by the I
Dodge company are the St. Helena and
the Northland.! The former was In port I
a short time ago, after being all sum-
mer on the Alaska run, and the latter
makes this port .regularly with , freight
and passengers,' and the- South Bar.

On November 29, the day that the

Martin disappeared. An aged aunt, Miss
Virginia ,Wardlaw, was arrested and
charged with the murder of her niece.
, More than a week. later-Mrs. ..Martin

she had stayed -out of sight . because U
was deemed best for - the - Interests of
Miss Wardlaw to have Mrs. Martin

The lawyer, also gave it out .that Mrs.
Snead had committed, suicide because of
a disease that was slowly killing, her.
