Brief Resume of General News from All Around the Earth. DANGER OF TIE-UP IS AVERTED jfallsCit^lbotel Bohle’ s Barber Shops ( 5 Oregon Victims Alleged to Have Lost $30,000 to Promoter Eugene — Officers of the United States government are investigating the reconi of K. G. Math ¡son, San Francisco real estate dealer, arreeted in Oakland, Cal., Monday, accaniing to a statement made here by District At torney J. M. Devers. Attorney Dovers also stated that the authorities believe that Mathison, who is charged with having obtained title to real estate in Lane and Linn counties worth from $30,000 to $40,000 in exchange for bogus abstracts of title to Texas Isnd, did not o|>erate alone and that other arrests revealing a conspiracy to de fraud on an extensive scale are prob able. District Attorney Devers prepared reqiustion papers for Mathison, to be signed by the governor. In the event a Federal charge is perferred the state will likely turn the prisoner over to the Federal authorities for trial, he said. In one of the letters in the posses sion of the officers Mathison is said to have written that he had "unloaded the Oregon stuff" and hod done very well. The "Oregon stuff" referred to is alleged to have been land to wihch he had obtained title in exchange for alleged worthless abstracts of title to Texas land. Attorney Devers stated that In the cases he hail investigated, the ab stracts of title which on their face were genuine and set up a clear chain of title purported to have Eieen made by an abstract company which did not exist. The records in the county in which the Texas land is located con tain no record of such abstracts. The land Mathison purported to con vey to the Lane county farmers alleged to have been swindled of their farms, belongs to Mrs. H. M. King, reputed to be a multi-millionaire, of Corpus Christi, Tex. It is part of ber ranch, which consists of a Mexican grant that has never been subdivided. Her agent. Attorney Robert Kletierg, in a letter to District Attorney J. M. Devers stated that Mathison was unknown to him. From Andrew Bossen. who swore to the complaint against Mathison, title to Lane county land worth $10,000 and $600 in personal property was obtained in exchange for an abstract of title calling for 320 acres of the Texas land. Bossen announced some time ago that he had sold his farm and that he was going to Texas to develop his newly acquired land. From Pierce & Dehel, of Pleasant Hill, titile to a 320-acre tract of Lane county land was obtained by Mathison. Marvin Martin, of Brownaville, Linn county, gave a deed for 378 acres of Oregon land and a note for $2800 for an abstract of title to 480 acres of Texas land. S. J. Johns, of Myrtle Creek, Doug las county, was about to complete an exchange of his property for Texan land offered by Mathison. He took Mathison’s abstract of title to an at torney. There was some question as to Texas law and letters of inquiry written to attorneys in Texas revealed that the abstracts of title were not genuine, it is stated. Baker Mill is Burned. Baker—Fire destroyed the sawmill of the Oregon Lumber company at South Baker Monday afternoon, caus ing a loss of $40,000, with no insurance. The blaze is believed to have started by Powder-like sawdust in the engine- room, igniting from the fire under the boilers. In an instant the entire mill was ablaze and burned rapidly. For a while the entire $100,000 plant and many other buildings were threatened, but the Baker fire department and 150 men worked heroically and kept the flames from spreading. Several cars of lumber were pulled to safety just in time. Klamath Realty T raded. Klamath Falls— Several important real estate deals were made in this city last week. The Rocky Point Summer Resort, conducted for the past few years by Mr. and Mrs. Charles D. Wilson w s h sold to W. W. Smith, of this city. The property is on govern ment land and Mr. Wilson held a 26- year lease qn it. Mr. Smith said that he would build a large hotel at Rocky Point, which is at the extreme north ern end of Upper Klamath lake, and will have the hotel ready for use when the tourist season opens next summer. Man IOO Years Old Dies. Salem — George W. Bennett, aged 100 years and 6 months, died Monday at the State Insane hospital.

He had no known relativies and the body is being held pending instructions from Bennett’s guardian, Captain J. A. Duchanan, of Roseburg. Heavy Rain Causes Loss to Growers, Sheridan—The showers of Saturday settled down into a steady drizzle, threatening wholesale damage to grain and hops.
