C. M, Miall Appointed By
Judge Kelly to Take Charge
of Salem Fruit Uniorr t
C. M. Miall was appointed re
ceiver of the Salem Fruit union
by an order of Judge Percy Kelly
yesterday,' under motion of The
Phex company. He placed a bond
of 15.000. f
V In., an. answer to the application
for the appointment of a receiver
the Salem . Fruit union admits
that its attitude la ' such that it
cannot reasonably be ' expected to
undertake to collect the 10 cents
per crate penalty from any of the
other defendants In the case. The
answer states that "the reason for
'this attitude is . that . there is no
legal liability against any of the
growers for. the payment of said
penalty, or any other sum, to the
defendants the Salem . Fruit
Union." ; . ,
Admission is made that the
stockholders sof the. union are
handling their products through
other sources, but it is stated that
the reason for this action is that
on account of the pendency ot this
suit the credit of the Fruit Union
has been such, that it could not
handle business of that character
for its stockholders or others.
. "The Salem Fruit .Union ad
mits,"; the answer states, "that
the United States government had
made a claim against it for an in
come tax, and admits that said
claim has been partially paid, but
alleges that it did investigate and
protest .the, payment of the claim,
but that in the opinion of the
Salem Fruit union there is no
means of defeating - or , lessening
the claim except by showing that
the earnings on which said claim
is based were not in fact earnings
of the defendant, but were un
distributed portions of fruit and
berry pools which : actually be
longed to the growers Interested
in such pools, upon whom, it has
been the attitude of the defend
ants, rests the duty of taking1 the
Initiative la having the ownership
J-of said apparent earnings determ

President Coolldge will offer
Charles B Warren a recess, ap

the event that his nomination is
rejected a second, time by the sen
ate, it was announced officially, to
day at the White House. The sen
ate deferred a vote on the nomina

ter, democratic" . leaders had de
clared the senate must meet fear
lessly and decisively the challenge
to its - constitutional authority
which they said the executive had
thrown down.
The ; White House pronounce
ment, made on the president's be
half by Secretary Sanders, came
as a complete surprise to leaders
on both sides in the senate who
had received ' word earlier in the
day that the executive, was con
sidering the selection of another
for the post. - ' ,;" - .
Reports to this effect were cir
culated generally in the chamber
after Senator Curtis, Kansas, the
republican floor leader, had re
turned from a conference with Mr.
Coolldge at the White House and
had consulted with " a "number tf
his colleagues' In an effort to ob
tain an agreement to- defer action
on the nomination until Monday. ;
Senator Warsh, democrat, Mon

the appointment, refused, to con
sent to that arrangement and de
bate was opened.
Senator Robinson of Arkansas,
the democratic leader, declared
the president thus had challenged
the power and right of the senate
to do its duty under the constitu
tion, that of advising and consent
ing to nominations for high, of

"The executive must be taught
to recognize," he added, "that no
assumption must be indulged In
that this body,' in performing its
constitutional duty is transcending
its authority and violating the
rights of the executive." -
Expressing the opinion that not
in all the annals of history had
there been such a defiance of sen
ate, Senator Walsh said that body
was confronted, with the question
of whether it shall be disregarded
by the president in the future in
the matter of selection of men for
high office-.

Motor Bus. Associations At
tack Heavy Fee Placed
Upon Carriers
Preliminary steps on the refer
endum of house bill 413, the buss
measure as it is known,, were
taken Saturday when representa
tives of the Oregon Motor Stage
association asM the Auto Freight
Transportation association filed
petition forms with the secretary
of state.
Upon approval of these by the
attorney general, the next step
will be to Circulate these, the
names being required by May 27.
. The petition will have the effect
of Btopping the enforcement of
the law until the next general elec
tion after the people of the state
have had an opportunity to regis
ter their-views.
. In the meanwhile, it la under
stood, the bill will be attacked on
the ground that it is unconstitu
tional. - ' . . -. - ; ; , :
In brief, the measure in ques
tion places a heavy fee upon motor
busses and freight trucks operat
ing between fixed terminals and
also places these under the juris
diction Of the public service com
mission as are other utilities of a
similar nature. Because ot the
high fees, motor bus men declare
that the rates are almost confis
catory. The bill was bitterly op-,
posed during the legislature but
backed by the railroads, who held
that ' unless the carriers on the
highways were forced to pay their
share of maintenance as the rail
roads are the railroads would be
forced out of business.

Several officers who viewed the
remains expressed the opinion that
it might have been suicide,, while
other events of the - past, fsw
months are regarded as suspicious
and the foul play theory, is advanc
ed. The premature explosion t
a charge he was placing is accept
ed at present as the cause ot his
death.- ... , i
Swartz -is survived by his wife
and two children.. Miriam, 22.. and.
a son, 13 years old. The body
was taken in charge by Coroner
Lloyd T. Rigdon.
- According to the story told by
Mrs. Swartz to Coroner RIgdon,
District Attorney, John . Carson,.
Sheriff. Oscar Bower and Deputy
Sheriff. Bert Smith, Mr. Swart
prepared special . fuses for hlj
blasting, operations Fridays nighf
In order t get the work trot of the
way hefore heavy traffic: thronged
the' highway- Saturday morning.
The blasting-was done close to- the
highway and along a fence. - In
order to Insure a quick shot after
ascertaining if the highway was
clear, Swartz had placed the fuses ,
on sticks about four feet long, pre
pared with a cap and five-inch
fuses. After boring a hole be
neath the stump the fuse was then
lighted and the stick thrust down
the hole, giving him About 20 sec
onds to get away.
If a defective fuse was used, or'
one of this nature substituted, the
time elapsing between the lighting
ofnhe fuse, and the blast would
not be sufficient to enable him to
get away.
- As a result of the death of
Swartz, criminal proceedings insti
gated by Swartz against Oeorge
Slaughter, a neighbor. Will be
quashed. r Swartz charged undue
intimacy. ' Since the alleged sep
aration, Swarts and bis wife had
been living together.
' About a year ago Hugh Kuen
zil, a brother-in-law, was found
dead In his barn; a bullet hole in
his head, the wound being in such
position as to make suicide prac
tically impossible. . Neighbors
blamed Swartz for the affair at
the time in a special letter to the
governor, but. a coroner's rerdict
was that of suicide. An effort was
made by means of a petition di
rected at the Marion county grand
Jury to have- the Investigation re
opened, but this fell by the way
side later?, ; i - .
Swartz was known as an expert
powderman and had been accus
tomed to using the short fuses In
his work. -The inquest-will bring
out anything that tends to show
that-these, had been tampered with
in any form. Funeral arrange
ments have not been completed.
