held here under sentence of death is
also feared. Batteries of searchlights
swept the desert around the prison all
night. An unsually heavy guard was
maintained there today.
Quiet prevails in Phoenix, but Sheriff
Adams is ready for eventualities. A sig

opened up the largest and what is ex
pected to be the woMiest conlerence
that has ever been called in this state.
What the effect of the conference will
be is all a rantter of conjecture. The
conference will draft resolution's, relat
ing to the disposition of the Innd, which
will be forwarded to congress but out
side of this state little interest is
aroused except in railroad circles and
the effects of the resolution to con
gress will doubtless be considerably
tempered bv the personal opinions and

congress when the final disposition
of the lauds comes up for a final vote
in the chief, law making body us? the
It is certain", however, thnt there will
be approximately 300 delegates present
and tnere will be several well formed
ideas as to the disposal of the lands
present also. The Farmers ' Union,
Oregon State Bankers', association,
State Press association, -and the South
ern Pacific company will all be rep
resented by delegations and it is likely
that a few other state organizations
may attempt to sent delegates on the
floor of the conference. The committee
on credentials will be tho first com
inittce to meet and this body will de
cide upon the right of any delegation
not already known to sit at the confer
No definite plan of procedure is sug
gested by Governor Withycombe. who
says that the conference must draw its
own conclusions and have froe rein to
make its own resolutions as fur as he is
concerned. Several enterprising law
firms of Portland, however, huve nl-
ready issued circulars informing the
delegates as to tiie best methods of dis
posing of tho lands, one of these cir
culars was received by Secretary of
State Olcott tiiis morning and it is cer
tain thnt others will be circulated nt
