HOMICIDE NEAR. MERLIN
Jeff Gibaon Shoots Schon Bach-
ler Through tha Heed with
(x Winchester Rifle.
On Friday evening between 5 and 6
o'clock, Schon Bschler who lived on
Rogue river just below the mouth of
Jump off-Joe creek, about four mile
from Merlin, was shot and instantly
killed by Jeff Gibson, a young man who
was living upon aud farming the place
adjoining B.ichler'f, known a the "Old
Man Si ni pk ina' place." Tbe tragedy
wa tlio culmination of a dispute of
many year duration over the boundary
line between the two farms.
The only witness, lo the shooting wai
Char. Van ltorn, who lives just seme
the river from Bach ler ' and bii testi
mony is deficient in that lie waa able to
see only one of the parties at the time
when the shooting took place. Van
Dorn, according to bis testimony given
at the coroner' inquest, was on the
other side of the river and tome 400
yards distant from the scene of the
tragedy. He taw Gibson coming down
toward the river, armed with hit gun,
a 30-30 Winchester. Gibeon had a
canoe on the river, but it was fattened
on the Bachler bank and Van Dorn
supposes that Gibson was coming t
a-k him, Van Dorn, to get the canoe,
not wishing bimeelt to go on Bachler'
ground alter it. Van Dorn heard Gib
son call to so mo one, apparently to
Bachler. lo "put down that gun," cr
worda ol similar import. Gibson waa in
plain sight of Van Doin but Bachler as
not, there being tome tree Intervening.
The men were tome 200 foet apart.
Almost immediately after calling to
Hachler, Gibson fired and Bachler fell.
Van Dorn being then able to distinguish
the prostrate form beneath the interven
ing trees. Gibson then turned and
walked some distance, paitly around
bia vic'ini, and fired a second time. He
then called to Van Dorn to come over,
but the latter was tinalilo to crost the
river until a boat waa sent lor him.
Gibson immediately tin rendered him
self to Ihe aiithoiitiet and wai brought
to Giants Pot. The body of Bichler
waa found on the line between the two
farms. Both shot had taken effect;
one in the center of the forehead, the
bullet tearing away nearly all the back
of the head, the other wound waa in the
shoulder. From the position of Ihe
wounds, it appears that tbe first shot
was the instantly fatal one. Bachler'a
gun waa found lying acruea hi body.
It is an ancient single barrelled, niutz'e
loidiug shot gun and wa loaded with
a light charge of bird sbnt.
The circumstance which caused the
dispute and led up to the tragedy are
tome hat peculiar. Many years ago,
when the riimpkins homestead was
taken up, there was a small fragment of
land, a "lot," to which no title was
acquired. This piece of land lay next
to Ihe river and the Siiupkins farm
completely enclosed it mi three sides.
Years afterwaid, it waa discovered that
the SimpkinB place enclomd a piece ol
government laud and Bachler spore pri
ated it for a home. Kver since that
time lliore lias been friction between
Bachler and the occupants of the K Hop
kins place. The lines were, in dispute,
Bachler claiming a strip about two rods
wide beyond the boundary conceded to
It is claimed that Bachler waa a man
of nnairelsome disposition and that
there wai constant friction between him
and hi neighbors. Uu the day before
he shooting, he waa in Grants Past lo
see what could he done toward settling
tht boundary question, but had it seems,
teceived little eatirfacliou. Returning
borne in Iho evening through Merlin,
angry anJ smi iiiU uu lor the iuflutnc
of liquor, he made threats against
Gibaou'a life in tlio presence of several
wilnesret. Gibson was warned and was
in ail probability worked up to a high
pilch of nervousness and xciteuient by
the ihrea's of Bachler. Bachler was a
native of Get many and about 00 years
of ago. He haves a wife. Gibson came
here recently from the Willamette
valley. He Is a man held in good
esteem by his acquaintance!, He hat a
family, a wife and two small children.
Information agaimt Gibson was filed
in the circuit court on Tuesday and bis
trial will probably be held on Thursday

WaMUNQTON, April 14th, 1902.
Ever lines the passage of the oleomar
garine law the senate bat devoted itself
to the Bubject of Chinese exclusion and,
while it is assumed when the measure
wai called up that two or three days
would suffice to dispose of the matter,
no vote will be taken until Wednesday
and the outcome it siore problematical
than it wat a week ago. Senators Hoar,
Dilliugham, Uallinger and Cullom
have all declared themselves opposed to
tbe present measure ou one ground or
another and It is regarded at quite
possible that the result will be the
adoption of the amendment offered by
Senator Piatt and which consists of
tuhelituting the Geary law for the
present bill and re-enacting that.
On laat Tuetday the house tegan its
consideration of the Cuban reciprocity
bill and bai been debating Ihe subjact
ever since. A the debate hat pro
ceeded the opposition ha dwindled and
it iB generally conceded that the measure
will pas without amendment. Tbe
policy of the friend of the bill in pre
venting Ihe setting of a date on which
to vote ha been proven judicious as
tbe member who opposed the bill have
wearied of the long debate and have
lost interest. It U now predicted that
a vote will be taken on Thursday of this
week. So far the discussion ha been
characterized by tome very able speech
es, nolably those of Messrs. Payne,
Grosvenor and Long and it ha been a
matter ol interest that Ihsse speeches
have been a'most entirely directed at
the opposing factious ol the republican,
little attention having been paid to the
democrat of their contention.
An interesting aession in tbe senate
last Friday wa precipitated by Senator
Depew who had. during the morning
ncwirs on liiurtday, taken occasion to
express bit view on the proposed
amendment to the constitution provid
ing that senatora shall be elected by
popular vote. Mr. Depew gave notice
that he would move an amendment
providing for lederal supervision ol
elections of senator . and in to doing
criticised the election laws in some
outbern states, mentioning by name,
Mississippi and Kentucky. On Friday
afternoon Senator Blackburn of the
latter state, replied to the junior senator
roui New York and hi remark were
tarcattic in tlia extiame but he at all
time confined himself to purely parlia
mentary utage. Wishing to d.my
certaiu statements of the New York
enator be laid, "It goe without saying
that the truth it Innocent of any a p.
pearanca Jn that lalement." The
passage at arm between the senators
imply demonstrated that men possess
ing a fine command of English need
retort to no profanity or Billingsgate to
express their difference of opinion in
most forcible terms.
General Scbofleld appeared before ti e
senate committee on military allam
ons day last week and presented Ins
testimony in regard to the proposed
army reorganitalion bill. Among othir
things he dated that the present general
of the army, Mile, wat not on speaking
term with the pretidanl ol the tecre-
tary of war and clearly demonstrated
the (utility of exacting the beat ad m in-
istratiou of tha army nnder a system
which made it practically compulsory
upou the president to retain as hit chief
subordinate a man with whom he could
in no way sgiee. According lo General
Scbofleld, the staff would serve to te
lieve the secretary of war of the admin
istration ol many detail for which hit
tual civilian training hat not lilted
him and the selection of a thief of stall
by the president would insure har
monious action between the commander-in-chief
and the first military ollicer.
The chancet of Pretideut Itoustvelt'l
occupying the pretidental chair for some
weekt longer, during hit first term, than
any of hit immediate predecetsori t tin
to bs growing. The nslional coinuiiHee
appointed to consider the advisability ol
changing the date of inauguration met
here recently and determined upon the
last Thursday In April at the most
favorable dale. There are now forty
three governor of state who hav
accepted their appointment to the com
mittee aud it seeuis probable that, by
their combined tlfort, the necessary
change In the constitution will be ac
complished. Ai hat been pointed out,
it is not only the danger to lbs health ol
the oflicial who take part in an in
auguration which will be ohv.atrj by
the change to a date w hen the weather is
more clement, but the health of many
thousands of visitors who fl ic ta Wash
Ington, and who, baing away from home,
are often tbe most exposed.
The president hat found in the pet
Ion af Mr. Kohert J. Wynne, a lung
time newspar correspondent of Wash
ingtun, t first assistant postmaster gen
eral and It it upecud that Mr. Wynne
will assume the dutie of hit office by
the first of May, Mr. Kooeevel. has
also selected a succetsor to Tension
Commissioner Kvant, Mr. Kugene K.
Ware being the appointee, Mr. Ware
il a resident of Tepeka, aud bis ap
pointment will be a eource of gratifica
tion to the Kansas delegation.
Tbe President and Mn. Uoosevelt
bave returned from their trip lo Ihe
Charleston tipoailioo and the former
declare that he is much rested. There
are few people ho And inch a journey
rettful but it seems to be one of the
president's characteristics that all he
requires in the way of a rest 11 a change
of activity. It It hoped that the presi
dent'! visit may result in an Increased
attendance at the exposition which has
been falling far behind eipenses no-
witlittaniling tbe eicelienc ol the et
hibiti and the general arrangements.
Mia Roosevelt alio, bat returned from
ber v.tit to Mrt. I-eonard Wood iu
It il the intention of Mrt. Roosevelt
to give a atrit-t of fete chainpetres on
the lawn ol lb While House. The
contour of tho White I loose ground la

tainment a high land next to the fence

Homeseckere to Colonize.
Scandinavian to the number of about

erative plan, are raid to be due to arrive
in Portland from Minneapolis forOregon
the latter part of next week for the pur
pose of settling in the ttale. .
They are in possession of considerable
meant and it it laid, have bargained for
a large tract of cultivated land in tbe
Umatilla wheat belt. G. Debrilx, a
land aijt'nt it looking after Ihe colonist
interests at this end of the hue, and it
wat through Minneiipolit agent that
the emigrant headed for the land ol
Mr. Debrilx gays that be hat secured
option on shout 8oH) acre of the very
best of wheat land in Umatilla county
for the colony, and that there it little
doubt that it will be bought outright,
at the lioincBeekers are well fixed finan
cially, they having disposed of their
well established farina in Minnesota.
The colony it mid lo be neither lbs
result of religion or political principles.
but simply a system ol farming on the
co-operarivs plan iu which all ehars
alike in profit or loss. Among the set
tler! will be craftsmen, such ax carpen
ters, blacksmiths, harness maker and
tailors and each one will be assigned
his particular lino of work, the whole
governed by a ruler or president and an
executive committee, or a body similar
to a hoard of trustees. Thin body alio
acts in Ihe capacity of a board of arbitra
tion, before which all grievance! uiubI
be laid, and its decision ia final.
To Hart with, only tlio heads ol the
families will come out West, but lo soon
us they have properly lo -aled, the ret
of the colony will be sent lor, and so Ihe
population of the country will receive
an addition of at leoal over 500 person p.
It Is estimated that Ihe colony will
bring into lb stale about (IHM.OOJ, the
larger portion ol which will go to pay
for tin laud, ami immeillil'e alterations
and improvement to buildings.
Mr. Debrilx also expect to locate
