Governor West, Commenting on School
iuno, Hits Those Who Have Per
mitted It to Be Stolen.
A statement prepared bv Mm stii..
liind,office, at the request of Governor
nest tor the use of the Oreson conserv
ation commission, shows approximately
j,i.u,ouu acros of land, derived through
grant from the federal government, to
nave uecu sold. For these lauds tlio
stale received $(i,08,G00. or a little less
than $2.15 per acre. There remains yet
unsold 5,)0,000 acres of surveyed, and
230,000 acres of unsurveyed lands. The
governor, commenting on this says:
"Hod the same protection h,,
thrown around the school fund in past
.M'ors as is now being thrown around it,
3e iuinLwouKUiave amounted rn H,;,.
ty or forty millions of dollars, instead
of a little more than six and ons hnlf
millions, the amount now in the fund.
The handling of our school fnnl
stands as an objoet lesson iu plunder
ana waste. It shows how public offi
cials will often stand idly by and per
mit such a sacred trust as the school
fund to be plundered by selfish inter
ests without raising a hand in its defense."
Weiser, Idaho, Aug. 28. Within the

The fight was brought to a close by
the arrival of the sexton.
Relatives of tho man whose body
was to oecunv tho crave on the fol

This was the dictum todny of
one of San Francisco's lending
woman's tailors who has returned
from l'oris, where he has lieeu
studying fall styles.
"This fall's skirts will fit like
the wrapper on a cigar," mi id he,
"Women will have to abandon
the custom of pulling 'em on over
their heads, and will have to
crawl into 'em like a man does
into his trousers. Home skirts
will require the use of a shoe

San Francisco, Aug. 28. While wait
ing to bo called to the witness stand in
the F. Drew Camlnetti white slave
trial here, Marsha Warrington and Lo
la Norris, involved with Caminetti and
Diggs in the Reno escapade, are being
flooded with proffers of marriage
from all over the country.
Grey-haired old men and romantic
youths, farme boys and urbane men
of profession are offering heart and
hand to the girls whose court confes
sions have been of such character as to
require police to keep back the crowds
in the federal building corridors. The
ardent proposals in manv. cases are ac-
compauied by photographs of the more
or less handsome senders.
A number of letters of this charactor
have even been sent to the girls in
care of cjurt officials, and several, it
is declared, have been delivered to
Judge Van Fleot's chambors
Letter heads indicate that some of
the missives come from theatrical
agencies in the East. Without distinc
tion they have found their way to the
waste basket.
One New Witness.
With the exception of Peter J. Te
nancy, secretary of the state board of
control, under whom Caminetti for a
time was employed at Sacramento, the
witnesses today woro the same as those
who laid the foundation for the prose
cution in the Diggs case.
All efforts of the government to re
veal Caminetti 's domestic affairs
thronph Tehnev were frustrated at this
time Theodore Roche had announced
that tho prosecution intended to show,
through this witnoss, that Caminetti 's
resignation from the board of control
clerkship indicated his intention of
leaving Sacramento and his family per
manently. The defense had maintained
that tho trip was only to have lasted a
short time.
Caminetti 's resignation was admit
ted in evidence. It directed the Vato
controller to turn over his salary war
rant, calling for $lii to tho Sacramento
Valley Tiank, to cover checks he had
issued the night of the flight of the
quartet to Reno. It was written on
tho stationery of Austin & O Bnen's
saloon. Tehaney also will be called as
a witness by the defense later.
More Women Present.
Ho hnd been preceded by E. W. Mil
ler, Reno grocery clerk, who again told
of delivering produce to Diggs and
Caminetti and tho two girls, who rep
resented themselves as husbands and
Perhaps more women than have ap
peared thus far at oither trinl were
present when court opened today. Sev
eral young girls with books under their
arms gave the impression that they
were "playing hookey" from school.
They started up hastily when the 12
o'clock whittle Mew, and hurried on'.

The weather permitting, one of Hip

Socialists Few.
Although there were but 739 people
registered under the ne wlnw, the
majority of voters being exempt from
registration at this time, the records
show that out of the numbor of appli
cants for registration since June 3
there are 121 Prohibitionists to 117
Democrats, while the Socialist party
is represented by but 14 voters, and
387 Republicans registered. Tho Inde
pendent voters registering total 72,
while 9 Bull Moosors declared them
selves. The county dork accented the
applications of 19 persons who would
not divulge their polities.
For the first timo in the history
of Marion county's registration it is
now possiblo to secure a rnrriw.1
and expedient report of tho registra
tion prior to elections. County Clerk
Oehlhnr has systematized the registra
tion problem to the extent that he can
turn to an index file, and within a few
soennds give any inquirer tho exact
copy of the record of registration of
any voter. Under tho old registration
law, this was imposisble, due to the
fact that there was no system by which
tho clerk or his deputies could find
certain names of those registering. Al
though tho new system requires much
more work and timo, it is thoroughly
efficient in every respect, and when
the registration books are onco closed
future reference to them is but a mat
ter of a minute's interview with the
county elerk 's office.

Washington, Aug. 28. CBble ad
vices today from John Lind, President
Wilson's special peace emissary to
Mexico, indicated there is still a strong
probability of Provisional President
Huerta accepting President Wilson's
peace suggestions. Llud's latest note,
however, did not confirm reports that
Huerta had accepted the peace plan in
full, but the fact that Lind announced
that ho would continue his stay In
Mexico indefinitely is considered en
couraging by Washington officio!.
The state department this afternoon
made public the gist of the lastest
cable from Lind. It said:
Request Withdrawn.
"The requost for an exchange of
ambassadors is withdrawn, but Huer
ta hopes the presidont ambassadorial
personnel in Mexico City will continue
until after the October election."
It is reported here that nuerta ar
gued that Presidont Wilson's request
that Huerta not be a candidate for
the presidency in October constituted
a recognition of nuerta 's provisional
government. The administration, how
evor, repudiates such an Interpreta
tion. .
Huorta's latest note to Lind, it is
said, virtually reopens nnirnHntinn. -
Huerta's counter proposals.. The pros-
went, nowovor, is not building any
false hopes on the latest turn In r.i.

Wilson Insists ho Is perfectly familiar
with the Mexican constitution. alh
with the fact that It is enstoinnrv for
Mexican presidents to

thinks Huerta is seeking a roundabout
way of giving his pledge not to rim
