New Jury Drawn for Land
Fraud Cases.
' .
Benton county again had a
couple her citizens drafted for
service as jurors during the land
fraud trials in Portland, and these
gentlemen are W. A. Jolly,
county commissioner, and Walter
K. Taylor, who provides many
of our citizens with milk.
It was expected that Siletz
operations would be the first to
be investigated. Rumor also has
it that certain Albany men will
have to "explain." Regarding
all this talk and conjecture the
Portland Telegram of Tuesday
evening had the following:
It is believed tnat tne jury is
investigating today the Siletz
Reservation frauds, with a view
to renewing . the indictment
against Jones, : Potter and others,
which was dismissed because of
the faulty wording of the docu
ment. A number of Siletz wit
nesses are in rortland wno are
somewhat familiar with the
methods employed by Jones and
others in securing countryman to
file upon Siletz lands, and will
tell what they know to the grand
jury. .Fublisher borne, ot tne
Lincoln County Leader, at To
ledo, and Frank Stanton, county
commissioner of Lincoln, the
latter having done considerable
cruising on the lands said to have

been fraudulently obtained, are
among those who will testify.
F. Clark, an Oregon City
abstractor, and G. A. Heinz, of
the same place, are on hand in
response to summonses. ' They
wul probably tell what thev
earned of the Jones entries by
contests which they filed against
the fraudulent claims. Mr. Clark
is believed to have acted as at
torney for the contestees of the
claims. Colonel Robert A. Mil-
er, a Portland land office attor
ney, will appear to tell what he
knows about the Siletz filings, he
having acted as attorney for
several of the entrymen and for
some of the men who are under
stood to be subject to an indict
ment. W. S. U'Ren, of Ore
gon City, father of the initiative
referendum, has been summoned
and was on hand this moraine.
He left, after a conference with
District 'Attorney Heney,- for
Oregon City, to bring down some
papers to be introduced into the
testimony. His testimony . will
be to substantiate the fact that
Potter agreed to pay two soldiers
widows, Mrs. Mullin and Mrs.
Lehman, both of Milwaukie, Or.,
$200 for their filing rights, they

to collect the promised $200.
Potter, it is said, paid the riling
fees, but withheld the $200 be
cause the claims did not pass to
final receipt.
Investigation is to be made, it
appears, into the ways and means
used by certain Albany timber
speculators in acquiring lands
near Prineville. Albany men, it
is alleged, have succeeded in get
ting title to timber lands there
by equally doubtful methods as
were used in the Siletz reserve,
the modus operandi being al
most identical the en try men agree
ing to transfer title to the lands
to the promoters of the scheme
upon final receipt issuing. Kola
Neis, a - leading hopman of the
state, and manager of the Al
bany brewery, is here to tell
what he knows in connection'
with these transactions. This
at counts, it is believed, for the
presence here of .many Prineville
citizens who are to appear be
fore the grand jury.
A million pennies a day that
is the capacity of a . strange ma
chine which Uncle Sam used in
the Philadelphia mint to count
the coin of the smallest value
made by the government. The
machine, known as a counting
table, is exhibited in the Govern
ment building as a part of Uncle
Sam's $800,000 display on the
Peninsula in Guild's L,ake at the
Lewis and Clark Exposition.
The counting board is about as
large as a big kneading board
such as housewives use. The
surface of it is wide enough to
hold a row of forty pennies
When the pennies are -to be
counted, several thousand are
heaped onto the board, which is
placed above a hopper. . Then
an operator tips the board back
ward and forward and sideways,
so that the pennies slide about,
and finally settle in the grooves
made by the brass partition
strips. When the board is full.
there are 1, 000. pennies on it. It
is then dumped into a receptacle
just outside the hopper, and the
bennies which have slipped off
the boaid into the hopper are
caught by a box underneath
Pennies are coined only at the
Philadelphia mint, and the Gov
ernment finds the coining- of
them profitable, because the value
of the metal they contain is only

1 he uosettine macnine is
another interesting mechanica
contrivance. It is used for tnrn
n'e the edges ot coins. The coin
discs, of the proper size and thick
ness, but with their edges stil
are put into tubes to St
tnem. These tubes are placed
upright beside a round-topped,
revolving table. At each revolu
tion of the table, ne of the discs
drops into a groove between the
table and an outer shell, and the
pressure on the edges ot the disc
makes them smooth.
Stamping the coins is the last
- .
process and tuis is done Dy
means of a great machine which
weighs 15 tons and costs $15,000.
There are twenty-four such ma
chines in the Philadelphia mint.
The discs which are to be coins
are placed in a tube, as is the
case of the upsetting machine.
The steel fingers take hold of the
bottom disc, and move it over to
the die. - Then the die above
presses down on the disc, so that
the impression is made on both
sides. At the same time, the
edges of the disc are milled, and
when the upper die raises, . the
steel fingers push the finished
con out of the way and bring
a disc into position.
The machine at the Portland
Exposition, which is used in
stamping twenty-dollar" .... gold
pieces, has a capacity of 90 a
minute. A pressure of 180 tons
is neccesary to stamp a silver dol
lar, but 130 tons pressure will
stamp a double eagle. Smaller
coins require less pressure.
In connection with the exhibit
at the Western World's Fair,
coins of this year's make in all
denominatioiis except the silver
dollar are disrlaved. None of
the mints are now coining dol
ars, because the Government
has on hand 600,060,000 which
are being held tor the purpose
of redeeming silver certificates,
There is also on exhibition at
Portland the 1 hrst coining press
ever used by the United States
Government, a crude machine
which was operated by hand,
and was used in 1 79S for making
