INVESTIGATED BY THE COMMITTEE
Nothing Improper in Ihe Conduct of
the Senatorial Candidate at
Salem In 187.
The direct testimony of such men
aa Hen Selling, Kdgar jj. Piper, . H.
U'Ken and Judge Ileury K. MoCitin,
who waie frequently iu and around
Jonathan Bourne's headquarters ut
Salem and saw nothing at all Improp
er, caused tne special committee ap
pointed by tbe Municipal Association
to Investigate anonymous charges
circulated against Mr. Isonrne to
make public a report that the charges
were not sustained.
The testimony of these witnesses, as
well as others, such aa Vtiillaoe Mc
Oaniant, V. V. Hanks, A. A. Ittiilcy
aud John Ulll. who wereu-t political
ly allied to Mr. llotirne and are not so
now, was all favoruule to tutu. Hen
Selling, a member of tbe senatu in
lHy7, occupied a room across tbe cor
ridor from Itotirne's headquarters
during the entire light of tho holdup.
lie testified that he saw nothing Im
proper, saw uo women around the
quarters and that bad there lieen any
be would most likely have seen them.
ihe trench chef, who worked in
tbe oulluary department of tho quar
ters, was a witness, lie declined that
tbe only women around the quarters
were his wife, who helped him do the
cooking, and his mother-in law, who
visited tbe place to sell eggs, and lie
was there day and night.
Judge MoOinn testilled very poal
lively that Mr. Bonnie's conduct of
tbe platt was highly pi oner in all re
spects and he, like all the rest of the
witnesses, said that bad there. Iveii
auy evidence of improper conduct on
tbe premises he would certainly littte
known of it.
The committee's renort savs the
oharges weie not sustained and that
seveial witnesses testified quite the
contrary. Complaint is made that
several persons professing to have
knowledge of the common repute of
the place were unwilling to appear be
fore the committee and that it wax
hampered to the extent ot being with
out power to compel the attendance
of witnesses. The report is:
Kxeoutive Committee of tho Munic
ipal Association: Oentluuien We,
your committee appointed to investi
gate certain charges made dining the
primary nominating campaign Unit
Jonathan Bourne, candidate for Uni
ted States Senator, did, during the
sesacions of the Oregon Legislature of
lKHi and VMl, maintain at Salem
headquarters wheie he was attended
by various classes of outlaws and
where it was sought by the use of dis
solute women and drunkenness and
debauohery to influence aud corrupt
legislators, bog to submit the follow
ing report :
i our committee undertook the work
assigned to it with extreme reluc
tance, foreseeing the ditllculty that
would Inevitably attend securing or
evidence bearing upon matters of the
nature involved iu the olmrgos, ami
tbe result of our efforts has proven
that such anticipations wero well
The following witnesses appeared
before tbe committee and gave their
testimouy under oath, namely John
i. Ualy, Jienry K. Mod nn, Will u. i
King, W. 8. U'Ken, John (Jill, A. A.
Bailey, Wallace McCamiiiil, Men Hell I
ing, Kdgar It. Piper, Frank C. Mid
dletou, William W. ISa'iks, II. 8. Hud
son, J. (,'. Bayer and David I Povoy.
All Testimony is Preserved.
The testimony of each of said wit
nesses was taketi by an otllciuj cour'
reporter and a transcript of tho whole
thereof vorilled by said rcpott is here
with transmitted to your body as a
part of this report.
Numerous othei witnesses wero per
sonally requested to appear before the
committee anil give evidence, who ex
pressed their unwillingness to attend
tho hearing or give any statement for
tho reporter. Ptiblio notice of the
bearing waa given with the request
that any person having information
that might bo of assistance to the
committee appear aud give the com
tnittee the lienellt of their knowledge,
hut uo witnesses other than tliime
above-named were obtained.
The evidence adduced shows that at
both the sessions of 1W7 ami that ot
l'.KU headquarters were maintained by
Mr. Bonnie lu what is l uown as the
Uilridge block iu Salem, wheio lavish
hospitality was extended to all visitors.
Tho testimouy adduced does not show
that the charges aforesaid were found
ed iu fact or that letvd women were
ever about Baid headquarters oi that
said place was tho rendezvous of in
toxicated or d sreputahle persons; in
fact, several witnesses testilled that
such a state of a Hairs did not exist.
Various rumors that hearsay reports
of the nature of said charges have
been oouimuuio. ted to the members
of your committee outside ot the sit
tings, and ell ort s, as diligent as pos
sible within tho time at our disposal,
have been made to secure evidence
as to said rumors that could be em
bodied in this report, but such elt'uils
have been fruitless, as witnesses dis
claiming personal knowledge as lo
facts, but professing lo have know
ledge as to common repute have been
unwilling to testify before the com
mittee. Mil Willi Some Hindrances.
The work laid upon your committee
has involved the expenditure of much
time and ellort, with many hindrances,
and wo respectfully submit this report
as embodying all that in your com
inittce is ah e to accomplish in the
absence of any power to require the
attendance to witnesses.

mit some facts concerning the pro
nosed sale of the Biiihuv toll road to
tho State of Oregon for fJI.OUU. 1 be
lieve it should lie voted down because :
it is not worth the money. The
promoters have an option ou tho road
from the owners for ?H,lRH) and will
make Hi,iK.i, if they can sell it to the
state. No fanners in t'lackaiu.ts
county are obliged to pay a toll to get
their products to market. Very few
farmers live near the road. Tho seven
miles of loll load between the moun
tains and the end of tho public road
was ollernil to Clackamas county as
a free gilt about three years ago and
refuse '. No provision is made in
the law fur an examination of the t itle
of the alleged owners, nor requiring
the title lo be free from incumbrances.
There is very little travel on this
road. I drove over tho road across
tho mountains and back seven years
ago and did not meet an average of
one team a dav.

soliciting subscribtion this week.
I Finest Banker Aulersou bas built
about four miles of the road, from
j Mr. Stone's homestead south, and
1 the appropriation running out, be had
to quit, but says that he can give as
sistance still if money is raised to
complete tne roan, ine route oi tne
wagon road runs over a tract that bas
been burned over several times, so
that tho old logs that were lying thick
on the ground, aud an impediment to
travel, even ou horse back, are about
all burned up. The new load makes
an easy grade, aud by cutting a tench
on the side of a mountain an easy
grado can be obtained, and also tbe
d istauco shortened from three to four
miles over the old trail. A little work
by the county between Tucker's aud
.Maple Dell, would make a line auto
mobile route to the lake, aud one of
tho most popular trips for summer
tourists in this part ot the country.
Tho wagon road has been pushed
forward a mile or two each year by
the campers, and this year the money
just raised assures the completion of
tho road to the lake. Many of the
old residents of the valley have never
been to the lake, owing to trouble to
get there. It is the same distance
lrom Hood Kiver that Trout Lake is
from W hite Salmon, and thousands of
toutislH go to the latter place ou ao
oount of its easy access, while for
beauty of scenery, its Hue llshiug,
general siiirouudiugH, Lost Lake is
far superior to Trout Lake.
The new Mt. Hood railroad 'now
runs about half way to the lake, mak
ing the journey a comparatively short
one. From W iuaiis to tbe lake the
grades are nut heavy, aud a few of the
bad places lu the road should be fixed
by the county. It .would also assist
uititeriully iu tho development ot this
part of tho valley. Nearly all tbe laud
up to the reserve bus been taken up
by settlers, aud Iho.road is a necessity
to the settlors as well as to tourist
travel iu summer.
