Two Spanish Brothers Des

Men. Threats and Long
Ride Through Hills.
Talk of Ropes and Trees Not
Pleasant to Ears of
Twp Prisoners ,
story of the raid at Inglewood on
April 22 last iWas related today by
the victims in the trial of 37 al
ieged Ku Klux Klansmen who
are alleged to have taken part in
the affair.
Fidel and Matias Elduayen,
brothers, testiried they were
dragged f rpm their house partly
clothed late, at night, carried
about in an automobile , for two
hours, threatened, and finally set
free she iles from their home.
She Cries for Kleagle.
The testimony, given through a
Spanish interpreter, was twice; in
terrupted by unusual incidents,
the first being the clearing, ot the
court room because of a burst of
laughter from the spectators over
a'n 'answer by one of the witnesses.
The trial bad j nst been resumed
when a young , woman spectator
began to sob violently. As a
bailiff was leading her from the
room she became hysterical ' and
screamed: :
"I want to see a kleagle."
Matrons who examined her at
the county jail said they found a
package containing a habit form
ing drug in her, handbag. She
was, sent to the psycopathic ward
of the county hospital for observa
tion. ,
Says Revolver! Used. ,
Matias Elduayen's testimony
was to the effect that three, men
seized and bound him at fhe door
of his homeland forced him into
an automobile at the point, of a
revolver, Fidel being taken in the
same machine on the ride ; about
the countryside; which included
visits to two police stations and
futile attempts to have the pris
oners locked up. Matias' cross
examination consisted largely of
negative answers to question
whether he had sold liquor to his
captors before they bound him.
Matias also denied he told bis
captors that he had paid' 1 500 to
a federal official for ,protection,,
$1200 to a county official and
1700 to, en. unnanied person for
the same purpose. , ;
Bedroom Entered.
;! Elduayen said t. he , was
aroused the night of the raid .by
the, entrance , oi "many masked
men" Into the bedroom where he
and his wife were asleep. The
intruders, he said, " pointed re
volvers at him and asked him to
get up. He was taken .out clad
only in overalls, he declared, and
bound, after which he was. taken
on the trip previously described
by his brother
i "During the trip," Fidel said,
"the men who were with us asked
me where my boiler was. I told
them I had none and they could
go back and search my ranch from
end to end tor one it they wanted
to. . Then they threatened to kill
me. I heard them talking about
a rope and said; 'that tree won U
; $Q
The other tree is higher.
After that they took us back to
Inglewood, then to the hills, where
they let us go."
1 Both brothers said they under-,
stood, English slightly but could
not. express themselves - in that
language- Matias?was questioned
closely about his knowledge of
English while under cross-exaina-
tion but insisted he knew pnly a
tew words. He said he, knew, what
his , captors meant . .when they
asked him f'where Is the still? be
cause of the resemblance ot the
word rstill" to Us Spanish equival

equivalent for the word "boiler

Department ' of Agriculture
Requests that Charms no
' Longer be Purchased
the Associated Press.) Don't buy
elk teeth for watch charms, stick
pins or . other ornaments, is the
plea ot the department of agricul
ture, for the price of each pair
of such teeth is the life of a mem
ber of the country's smalt and
fast diminishing herds.
They are very pretty ornaments.
and for many years have been
used by Indians, especially the
squaws, for. that purpose; but the
difference Is that the " Indians
need only the teeth from animals
slaughtered for food and their
hides, while the white man kills
the elk, extracts the two teeth
and waste3 the rest.
Thousands of bull elk have
been killed In the Yellowstone
park region by hunters who il
legally . poach upon the govern
ment preserves, and, despUe the
vigilance of rangers and guards.
shoot down the elk in all seasons
merely for the teeth. The fash
ion of wearing these bits of bone
as watch charms, cuff links, stick .
pins, and bat pins has been stead
ily growing as the once vast
herds of elk dwindle and vanish
and are threatened with entire
extinction, according to the bio
logical survey. The. hunters re
ceive high prices for the teeth. ,
A few years ago the wearing
of aigrettes for hat trimming
threatened the annihilation of one
of the most beautiful birds, but
through aroused public opinion a
halt was caused in time" to save
the birds. Unless the market for
elk teeth is curbed before it is
too late, it is declared, it will
mean -the t extermination of elk.
A fuller understanding of the his
tory and price paid tor elk teeth
will have an influence In depreci
ating the market and thus remov
ing the incentive for, this wanton
slaughter, the department feels.
Structure to Cost $50,000

Salem Indian school is soon to

.$50,000, and' to accommodate be

school officers have been looking
almost every day for the arrival
of the call for bids on the new
structure. They hope to have the
work begun In time for the build

The historic cid Brewer hall,
named after Davd Brewer, for so
many years the (tactical main

Independence Citizens Again
Challenge Rights of High
way Commission
DALLAS, Or., Aug. . (Spe
cial to The Statesman.) An
other chapter in the now famous
road case between the city of In
dependence and the state highway
commission and the Polk county
court has been begun with the
filing ot another injunction by
citizens of that community against
the highway commission and the
county court, petitioning for an
injunction against the court from
selling $40,000
worth of bonds
to raise funds
to pay for the
grading of the West Side hlga
way between Yamhill county and
Benton county Jines.
Irregularity Claimed
The plaintiffs allege in their
complaint that the special . elec
tion called by the Polk county
court in 1919 for the purpose of
voting bonds for hard surface
road work in this county was not
done in a proper manner.
The sale Of the bonds was sup
posed to have been made at the
term of court on . August 2, hut
owing to a small. Irregularity in
the publishing of the notice ask
ing for bids on the bonds, the
sale was called off.
Salem-DallAA Road Sean Finish
Just what will, be the outcome
of the affair Is-ard to determine,
but it certainly looks that, as far
as the West Side highway is con-
jcerned in 'Polk county, it may be
years before it is completed. The
injunction, however, does not af
fect the Dallas-Salem highway,
which is rapidly nearing comple
tion, and it will be but a week
more before that stretch of road
Way is completely hard surfaced.
A few weeks ago a suit was de
cided by' the supreme court In a
case brought by Independence
citizens whereby they enjoine
the county court from using mar
ket road money for paying for
the grading on the West Side
highway, and the case was decid
ed in their favor. The decision
not only affected the road situ
ation in Polk county but in seve
ral otber counties in the state.
Dallas Well Satisfied
In the several cases filed
against the highway commission
and the Polk county court the
citizens of Dallas have taken no
part, their interest in the road
situation ceasing when the legis
lature gave the highway comrais

routes which should be hard

PORTLAND, Or Aug. 9 Extensive irregularities indi
cated late today 'during the recheck' of Republican gubcrna

nomination of Ben W. Olcott for governor, threw 34 votes to
the Olcott side and caused District Attorney Stanley Meyers
to announce that an immediate investigation of the election
count in precinct 201 of Multnomah county would be mado
for possible grand jury action. . . . u - , . . ;
- The disclosure gave Olcott aMotal gain in Multnomah

Attorneys . examining the ballots also said that John B.

i least 49 votes in the precinct,

The count turned in by the election board for governor
was : Olcott 31, Kail 81 The recount was: Olcott 40, Hall

16 votes, a net gain for Olcott of 34" votes. ; s
John A. Collier, attorney for Hall, asked for an official irv
vestigation as soon as the tliscrepancy had been disclosed '
Jay Bowerman, attorney for; Olcott, joined in the request.
"We shair start the investigatibn at once,' said Distdcf
Attorney Myers, "and if anything improper is' found, the
