At the last session of the county court
the will of Perry Watkins was probated.
The will specifies the administrators
preferred, but owing to various condi
tions they all resigned, and there were
appointed by the court, C. E. Bayard
and Frank Watkins, who will act as ad
ministrators jointly. The following is
the text of the will.
In the name of God, amen, I, Perry
Watkins, of the age of 69 years past, re
siding in Wasco county, Oregon, mind
ful of the uncertainties of mortal life,
and being of sound and disposing mortal
life and memory, and not under the mis
representation or undur influence of
anyone, hereby make, publish and de
clare this my last will and testament,
that is' to say :
1. I desire that all my just debts,
funeral expenses, expenses ot my last
illness, and expenses of administering
my estate under this will, be first paid
out of any money or property of which
I shall die, seized or possessed.
2. All of my residue and remainder
of my property, of whatsovever kind or
nature, wherever situated and of which
I shall die seized or possessed, I give, de
vise and bequeath as follows :
To my son, Geo. Watkins, one-fourth ;
to my son Frank Watkins, one-fourth ;
to my daughter Rebecca Bayard, one
fourth ; and one fourth to my grand
children, Genevieve and Bessie Watkins,
infant daughters of my deceased son,
Perry Watkins, jr; it being my inten
tion and desire to treat all my children
alike in the disposition of my property.
my said grand children to have and to
receive the one-fourth part, which I
should give to their father had he been
living, and I farther desire and direct
that in the event of the death of either
of my said grandchildren before arriving
at full age, and while single, then the
survivor is to receive the one-fourth
part, hereby devised and bequeathed to
them equally. - '
The third clause names George and
Frank .Watkins, Rebecca Bayard and
Frank . Menefee joint executors of the
will ; and that Frank Menefee specially
represent the grandchildren Genevieve
and Bessie Watkins.
The will is dated September 24, 1895
Accompying the will was a petition

C. E. Bayard and Frank Watkins as ad'

tioned by Perry Watkins deceased, had

Wm. Lane Waived Examination This
Afternoon Before Justice Fllluon.
A large crowd assembled at JuBtice
Filloon's court at 2 o'clock this after
noon in anticipation of having the pre
liminary examination . in the case of
State of Oregon vs. Wm. Lane for rape, !
alleged to be committed on the person
of a little girl of 12 years. The
large number of people who thronged
the court room and sidewalk in front,
overflowing even .into the street, was
doomed to disappointment in their
quest for the sensational, for other
than the sight of the defendant and ac
cuser being brought face to face, it was
not vouchsafed them this time to follow
the details of the alleged crime through
the testimony, for the defendant waived
examination and was bound over under
$300 bonds to appear. before the grand
jury at the next term of court.'
The father of the girl was ignorant of
the real nature of 'the case until yester
day morning. He had been much ag
gravated of late by the persistence of
Lane in seeking his young daughter, be
ing powerless to prevent his meeting her
by anything he could do. While yet not
suspecting any intimacy between them,
he determined to place the matter be
fore the attention of the authorities, and
yesterday he .appeared before Re
corder Phelps saying that before resort
ing to the shotgun to keep Lane away
from the house he had decided to see if
the law could not be made to serve the
same ends. He was informed by the
officer that there was nothing criminal
in Lane's going to his bouse nor his per
sistence, and that if he could not keep
him away, the officers could not, unlees
some breach of the peace was committed.
The father left, but iu the meantime
other disclosures were made which led
to Lane's arrest on the charge of rape,
and later the father appeared and swore
out a warrant in the regular way.
It seems that the girl's older sister
had shortly after the father left' the
bouse, found a letter upon her person
signed "Willie," which is so ob
scene an to be unfit for publication. The
letter contained a proposal for a meeting,
and a threat against her father for his
impertinent interference between them.
Whoever was the author is possessed of
a very debased and criminal mind, for
the suggestions are coached in the most
indecent language, and the threat
against the life of the girl's father to his
daughter betrays a very brutal mind.
The girl was then taken to the re
corder's office. For a while she main
tained an attitude of reserve, but later
broke down and made . a complete con-,
fession. ." '
The child is more sinned against than
sinning herself. She is but 12 years old
and has been a prey to the passion of
another, rather than possessing a desire
herself to wander from the path of
virtue. ..For such child victims the laws
of Oregon have protected them in every
way post ible by fixing the age of con
sent at 16 years. '
