DRAWN BY PACKERS
Meat Inspection Dill Was
REPRESENTATIVE WAS IN CHICAGO
Member of Commltteo Submitted Sub
stitute to Packers Changes Ac
cepted In Full.
Washington, Juno 16. President
Itooeevolt has yot to play his trump
card against the men in congress who
are endeavoring to render ineffective)
the Beveridge meat Inspection amend
mont to the agricultural bill. It bo
came known today that the house com
mittee substitute tor the Beveridge
Amendment was actually drawn by the
Chicago packers and was reported by
the committee exactly as requested by
the men whom the president proposes
to place under government inspection.
The houo commltteo last Saturday
morning reached an agreement to ro
port its substitute and immedlatly Rep
resentative Lorimer left for Chicago
with a copy of the committee bill, lie
spent hall a day Sunday in conference
with the leading packers of his home
city, submitting to them the substi
tute drawn by himself and Chairman
Wain worth and accepted by the major
ity of the honse committee. The pack
era went over this proposed legislation
very carefully, wrote in many changes
which they desired, and asked Mr. Lor
imer to do his best to have their ideas
Mr. Lorimer hastened back to Wash
ington, submitted the packers' Ideas to
the committee, and the majority of the
committee actually adopted every sug
gestion that was made to Mr. Lorimer,
reporting a substitute for the Beveridge
amendment identical with that which
was endorsed by representatives of the
packers in Chicago on Sunday. These
facts are vouched for by two members
of the house committee, and they have
reported them to the president.
Such evidence as this is the strongest
kind of a club fjr the president, and
will do more than anything else to de
feat the committee proposition and
force the house to accept something
very similar to the original Beveridge
amendment; to do otnerwlse, the house
would have to acknowledge that it was
legislating at tbe direction of the beef
trust ana few congressmen care to go
Into tbe campaign this fall with any
such record to their credit.
WANT APPEAL TO COURTS.
Victims of Postal Fraud Orders Want
IS Washington, June 10.- Effort is be
Ingjcnade to curb tbe power exercised
by the Poatoffice department in issuing
fraud orders against mall. The house
committee on Judiciary has reported
favorably a measure granting appeal
from department fraud orders to the
courts, w lere the petitioner shall be
insured tbe right to a full Judicial
hearing on the facta and Judicial Judg
ment as to whether the postal laws and
regulations are being violated.
Department rulings on use of the
mails, especially on the point whether
fraud is being committed, have been
tbe subject of many sharp controversies.
The plenary powers of the executive
officials have been as frequently es
tablished. Accumulated disappoint
ment of those denied access to the
malls Is offered in explanation of tbe
present movement. Since the removal
of Tyner, there havo been no charges of
wilful abuse of tbe powers of the de
partment, but the purity of purpose
conceded to officials has not removed
tbe sting entirely for those who have
There is little prospect that the
mesaure will be passed by the bouse
this session, but assurance is had that
a serious effort will be made to put it
on the statute books before the close of
the Fifty-ninth congress.
Ready to Reduce Navy.
Rome, June 10. In the chamber of
-deputies today, Signor Brunialti Inter
rogated the government relative to the
proposal of the British government at
The Hague conference for reduction of
armament. Foreign Minister Tlttoni
replied that he was glad of the oppor
tunity to publicly express Italy's ad
hesion to the humanitarian proposal of
Great Britain, adding that Italy always
was ready to co-operato sincerely with
initiatives aiming at tbe simultaneous
reduction 'of armament to avert the
dangers and disasters of war.

DRIVE THEM FROM STATE.
California Dcclaros War on Dlshonost
Sun Francisco, Juno 16. -The olllclal
of California nre agreed, It is said, that
the Insurance companies which refuse
to meet their obligations and pay their
losses In full will not only bo driven
from the state, but ruined beforo the
world, If the widest publication of their
methods can accomplish that end. In
surance Commissioner 13. Marlon Wolf
Is backed by Attorney Oenoral Webb.
The attornoy general expressed himself
forcefully today regarding tno proposi
tion made by 00 companies at a meet
ing in Oakland Tuesday to pay only 76
per cent of adjusted losses.
"Under the law of California," ho
said, "tho stato Insurance commission
er can rtvoko tho license of any Insur
ance company for the state when there
Is causo. Certainly tho payment of
only 75 por cent of losses would bo
cause. And not only would It bo proof
of unsoundness and unfitness to do
business, but it will bo tho plainest
evidence of dishonesty. It would bo
cause for the commissioner to revoke
the state license of any company stand
ing for such a proposition, and I know
that Mr. Wolf, whoso heart Is in the
situation, will Uke such action toward
companies that enter such an agree
ment. "This is tho limit of his power of
punishment under the Calflornla law,
but he can go much further. The in
surance commissioners of all tho states
stand together. Through them, Com
missioner Wolf can advertise to all the
world the dishonesty of the companies
that refuse to meet their obligations.
I am certain that he will use that pow
er against those that give him cause."
There was no chango today in the
alignment of insurance companies on
the proposition to mako a general 25
per cent cut, but the companies that
voted for full payment still hope to
win over many of thoeo that took the
stand for a percentage settlement.
LIFE DISGUSTS DOWIE.
Aged Prophet Lay Down to Die Once,
Out Could Not.
Chicago, June 16. John Alexander
Dowie, on tbe witness stand in Judgo
Londis court today, tremblingly beggod
for death to relieve him of his sorrows
and his defeats, lie declared also that
should be die he would come back to
earth again as Elijah tho Restorer.
Dowie, in the course of his testi
mony, gave the following rules to guide
a man who is about to die: "Do
things in order even when you go to
die. Don't make a splash and meea of
it. Go to your death couch and await
triih Atirl In llYi "
Tbe occasion for the discussion
death camo when Dowie, fighting
tho ownership of Zlon City and
claiming possession, which Is now
in tho bands of Wilbur U. Vollva, was
telling of his first serious Illness as
part of the testimony on his present
competency to rule the city which he
built. iAwie made tbe amazing asser
tion that after bo was first stricken he
lay down to die, but awoke two hours
"I was never so disgusted 89 when I
awoke two hours later alive," he said,
"and I am still alive and disgusted."
MASSACRE AND PILLAGE.

Notice was served on Senators Kelson
and McCumber today by the steering
committee that the senate will not per
mit them to continue their hold-up of
this nomination which it is apparent to
practically the entire senate that Wlck
eraham has been unjustly accused and
that the fight against him is not being
made in good faitb. It is unusual for
the senate to tako such drastic meas
ures with its own members.

OREGON STATE ITEMS OF INTEREST
TURNS DOWN WOOL GROWERS.
Pinchot Says They Must Pay for All
Range In Resorves.
Washington Glfford Pinchot, chlof
of tho Forestry service, has overruled
tho protest of tho Umatilla County
Woolgrowora' association In tho matter
of charging a erasing feo for tho Bltto
mountain forest reserve tango this sea
son. Tho woolgrowcrs also protested
that they wero not assigned Individual
ranges. Tho department explained
that It was not customary to assign
particular tracts to Individual stockmon
when reserves were first created, and it
Is not yet determined what plan will bo
followed In tho liluo mountains.'
Tho association also called attentton
to recent decisions by the California
and Washington conrto to the effect
that tho secretary of agrlculturo Is
without authority to lmposo a tax for
tho uso of forest reserve range, and
without authority arbitrarily to regu
lato its uso. The forest ofllclals inter
nret these decisions to hold that the
secretary of agrlculturo bad not been
empowered to enforce any penal code,
but did have the right to keep tho ro
sorves clear ol stock or lease them on
such reasonable conditions as he should
prescribe. No appeal has been prose
cuted to a final hearing In either case
but the ofllclals believe their right In
the sphere Indicated is beyond all pos
slble question, and say that court deci
sions will have no Influence upon the
rules adopted for control of reserves.
Bands Want To Go To Salem.
Salem Almost every organized band
In the state has applied to the Salem
Fourth of July commltteo for an en
gagement. When the committee began

number of bands, probably 20, would
be employed If possiblo for tbe occa
blon. The responses came thick and
fast. Several days ago tho committee
had engaged all the bands that could
be paid from tho fund available. If
thero were a few thousand more dollars
in tho treasury tho committee would be
willing to work ovortlme engaging
bands. As it la the commltteo is satis
fied .hat there will be more brass band
music in Salem on the Fourth of July
than was ever heard at one placo in

Strong Insuranco Company Withdraws
H in Francisco, Juno 111. Tho (lor
