Trouble Looked for Over Sllctz
.Reservation Contests.
Original Settlcrt Declare if Ejectment
Proceeding Fall Other Means
Will De Taken.
Newport, Or., Aug. 13. Proceed
ings to eject Uio alleged squatters on
the Silotx reservation claims of sever
al Lincoln county residents arc to be
taken at onco. If those are unsuccess
ful, the original settlers declare other
means to dispossess the contestant
will be taken. Serious trouble is
Two of the claims In dispute were
originally taken by L. W. William,
and Frank Priest, of this city. W. S.
Copeland ami V. JltTcott are now on
these claims. They have been ordered
by the original claimants to move and
have refused. They declare that they
will stay until the cases are finally
settled by the land office.
This, it is declared, is the attitude
of all the contestants. The original
settlers declare they will not permit
the contestants to carry out this plan.
Homesteaders whose claims are thus
threatened do not know what to make
of this bold move by the "squatters."
I They arc certain that a hundred or
more of the best claims are now liable
to seizure any day. They are informed
by the men now squatting on their
places that legal advice has been ob
tained and that the squatters paid
large sums for the Vocation and for
protection, but the homesteader are
in a fighting temper, because they
cannot see by what possible legal twist
they can be deprived of their claims
without a trial.
Killing of Onpaneso Traitor Caught In

lVkln, Aug. 14. Tho killing in this
city early this month of a. Japanese
army olllcer, supposed to be a spy
and traitor, by Japauese soldiers at

sult in the presentation by China of a
formal protest against tho doing of
police duty by legation guards outside
of tho legation precincts.
The olllcer in question wns Captain
Kyhwatn. He was in the artillery
branch of tho Hiroshima division ami
he wns formerly an instructor in the
Chines? military college at l'ao Ting
Ku. He was charged with selling Jap
anese military secrets to a foreign
power and disappeared from Japan in
On August 1 he was discovered dis
guised as a Chinaman, hiding near the
war otllce in IVkin. This knowledge
was communicated to the legation
guanfc and n detachment win sent to
capture him. He resisted arrest,
w hereupon the guard shot and wounded
the spy ami he tiled two days later in
the hospital ot the legation guanl.
M. Abe, the Japanese charge d'af
faires, has urged lack of time and the
importance of the prisoner in extenun
tion of the action of the guard in not
notifying the Chinese authorities be
fore arresting the captain. He ex
plains further that the resistance of
the prisoner was unforeseen and that
his consequent shooting ccukl not bo
The Chinese government is not sat

incident has created a good deal of
feeling on both skies.
Forests m Canada's Great National
Park Burning.
Winnipeg, Aug. 13. The forest
fires which raged around Fsmie have
spread to Canada's national park dis
trict near Banff, in Pray valley. The
fire bunted fiercely on the heights of
Goat mountain this week.
The government gang of men has the
fire in the valley under control, but
last night at several points on the
mountain eight miles away Are was
visible near the top.
A fire started at Castle mountain, IS

strong west wind in a half hourhad
run over eight miles. Boats and sup
plies were forwarded from Banff. The
wind shifted to the northeast, and
with this in their favor the fire-fight-

No anxiety U felt at Banff about
this hut fire, as it would be eempar
atively easy to protect the town, even

to the large area of open hay meadow

Harrlman Railroad Attorney Claims
Roads Can Give Rebates.
San Francisco, Aug. 14.- Peter F.
Dunne, attorney for the Southern Pa
cific railroad in its defense against the
charge of illegal rebating before the
Uailroad commissioner, today insisted
strongly that a common carrier could
not be guilty of unjust discrimination
unless the rate complained of was
made with "an evil intent." He held
further that the railroad was entirely
justified, the attorney general to the
contrary notwithstanding, in making
better terms to large hipers than to
their small-fry rivals.
Mr. Dunne also touched upon the
matter of competition and held, in op
position to the arguments of Messrs.
Benjamin and Cushing made the day
before, that it was part of a company's
innerent right of contract to take com
petition into consideration In making
freight schedules!
He also argued that the railroad had
a right to consider whether it had a
chance to carry the same material
again in the form of a more finished
product and, when there was such a
chance, to make a lower rate on the
raw material. If any or all of the cir
cumstances considered made it good
policy to carry freight for nothing, he
could see no provision in the law to
forbid it.
Douglas County Promised Immense
Crop This Season.
Kcsebunr Tillson & Co. have pur
chased n line equipment for their large
prune packing plant in this city, mid
have begun work to enlarge ami re
model tho plant to handle Douglas
county's large prune crop this year.
A new 30 horsepower loiler is now be
ing placed for the steam plant, ami
several now piece of machinery for
grading and packing will lie installed.
Nearly 200 cars of evaporated prunes
will be shipped out of the county from
various jniints, n large portion of
which will be handled by local firms.
In niklition to the new machinery the
building will be enlarged . to almost
twice its present site.
H. L. tides & Co., of Salem, have
purchased the Douglas County prune
packing house of Receiver T. K. Sheri
dan, ami will thoroughly overhaul ami
make additions to the equipment.
These two largo packing houses are
kept running for from three to four
months every fall. Besides these two
plants, there is another packing house

Strikers Paid and Discharged.
Winnipeg, Aug. IS. The employes
of tho Canadian Pacific railway were
paid in full today, and all striking me
chanics were notified that they bad
been discharged. The officials of the
company took this means of announc
ing that the railroad will fight the de
mands of the union to a finish. Vice
President Whyte, of the railroad, ar
rived here today from the Pacific coast.
He declined to discuss the strike or
state what is being done to fill the
places of the strikers. Strikebreakers
.are being imported.
Harri-nan Lines WW Spend 58,000,
OOO far Rotfng Slock.
New York, Aug. 14. The Harrimaa
roads are in the market for 6,000 steel
ears. Iso orders have been placed,
but the car equipment companies have
been notified that this amount repre
sents the total of an early purchase by
the Harriman lines, and for more
than half the cars there have been
filed specifications on which the equip
ment companies may base their bids.
Competition between the companies is
said to be keen, for the orders, if
filled, will be altogether the largest
since the panic.
The estimated east of the 6.000 steel
ears ranges all the way from $6,000,
000 to $7,000,000: It is expected that
the lower figure will prove, nearer cor
rect, lor in reason that the competi
tion between the ear equipment com
panies may result in a cut price.
