SHERIFF OF DOUGLAS COUNTY
SAYS HE WORKED HIS GAME
FROM SEATTLE TO ASHLAND
WAS IN JAIL AT ROSEBURG
A man trivintr his name as Capt
Halliwell operated among the ranch
ers of this section last spring, taking
subscriptions for several farm publi
cations, has a bad record according
to Sheriff Quine of Douglas county
in a letter to C. II. Chandler, a ranch
er near this city.
Halliwell represented to some of
the ranchers that he had an auto
Jmobile at Roscburg and that ho could
not get his machine over the moun
tainsat that time so was making a
walking tour. To others he told
that ho was going t San Francisco
on the Elizabeth and to still others he
told different stories. Theso things,
however, were not so material as the
tact that ho was around getting the
peoples' money and giving them bgus
receipts for the same, and after wait
ing fr a long time for their p apers
the people began to look Into the p re
position. Mr. Chandler wrote to
Sheriff Quine of Douglas county who
is an uncle of Mrs. Chandler, and
Mr. Quine replied that the man Halli
well had beat everybody from Seattle
to Ashland and then came over into
this section. Mr. Quine said in his
letter that ho had Halliwell arrested
at Ashland and brought to Roseburg
where ho was in jail all winter for
the same offense that he was carry
ing on here, and that he had let him
out abut April 1st.
Imnjediately.,after his, release Hal-.
Hwell came over to Coca county and
began his operations again and after
some time dropped out of sight, and
the people who took hia receipts are
out their money.

better each year or deterioate, and
in harmony with this spirit plans are
being made that will make the 1914
carnival bigger and bolter than ever
before. There are three organiza

SEAMAN'S BILL WILL PASS
THIS SESSION OF CONGRESS
The seaman's bill will bo passed by
tho present session of Congress was
the news telegraphed from Washing
ton last week by tho president of the
International Seaman's Union of
America to San Francisco papers.
Aroused into activity by the Em
press of Ireland disaster, both the
Senate and the House committees
having under consideration the Lon
don treaty and the La Follctte sea
men's bill, have taken steps the past
week to enact the desired legislation.
The House committee on merchant
marine and fisheries on June 12 vot
ed to report fnvorably upon tho sea
men's bill and directed the chairman
to ask for a rule for its consideration
by the House of Representatives.
"This means that unless something
unforseen occurs .to prevent, that the
seamen's bill will be enacted into law
at tho present session of Congress,"
was the news wired to San Francisco.
"The passage of this bill will mean
freedom for the American sailor. It
will abolish the slave laws by which
the seamen of our country nro the
only persons who may bo punished
for violation of civil contract to la
bor, by being arrested as deserters,
detained and finally delivered back to
tho ship, or sentenced to a term in
prison, for the simple act of quitting
tho services of an employer. Under
tho present laws the seamen must
work until exhausted or go to prison
for 'disobedience of lawful command.'
Twelvo hours work every day, seven
days a week at sea is the minimum
often exceeded. In port fifteen to
eighteen hours a day, sometimes 30
to 40 hours at a stretch, are required
Then the vessel proceeds to sea and
without intervening rest, the men
begin their sea watches. With the
passage of the Seamen's bill nine
hours a day will constitute a day's
work for snilors while in port, except
in emergencies, and ats ca tho men
will Rave only watch and watch (two
on deck and three in fireroom."
Briefly stated, the objects of the
La Follette Seamen's bill are:
First T promote safety of life at
Second To give freedom to tho sea
men, to provide better conditions for
the seamen, and by sodoing inducing
a better class of men to follow this
Third To put the American ship
owner upon an equal basis in compet
ing with foreign ships by eliminating
the differential in favor of foreign
vessels in. the wngo cost of operation
when competing with domestic ves
sels in taking passengers and cargo
from American ports.
