E. L. Stiff & Son,
A special train carrying three rail
road presidents and a number of other
officials stopped for a few minutes in
j Salem Saturday, and the result was a
revival of talk relative to the building
of various lines of railroad which have
been discussed at divers times hereto
fore. But the talk was based entirely on
conjecture. None of the officials, eith
er while at Salem or at other points,
gave out any information warranting a
belief that any immediate building op
erations are to be begun.
The train, which came in over the
Oregon Electric, carried a party con
sisting of I.ouis W. Hill, president of
the Great Northern; J. AI. Hannaford,
president of the Northern Pacific; L C.
ttilm&n, president of the S., P. & a.;
Thomas Cooper, assistant to President
Hannaford; . R. Budd, assistant to
Hill; W. P. Davidson, a St. Paul lum
berman; William Ha nicy, of Burns, and
A. M. Lupfer, chief engineer of the
P. & S.
On the arrival of the train at Albany,
the party left immediately by auto for
Cascadia, "to spend a quiet Sunday,"
as Mr. Hill stated to representatives of
the press. The party returned to Al
bany last night and left at once for
Portland, and will go today to Glacier
Mr. Hill denied statements that have
been published in regard to extensions
of the Oregon Electric south of Califor
nia and east from Salem to connect
with the Oregon Trunk at Bend. "There
are enough railroads in the Willamette
valley now," he said, "and we are hav
ing trouble enough as it is without
New York, July 24. Speeding
automobiles and the terrific
surf took their toll of lives
among New York pleasure seek-,
ers Sunday, eight persons being"
killed and over a score injured.
Five swimmers were dragged to
death at Coney Inland, and an
other drowned Tit Jamaica Bay.
Two persons were run down and
killed by autoists.
Drowns in Willamette
Raymond Bliven, age 18, was
drowned in the Willamette yesterday
afternoon at about two o'clock. The
accident occurred at Spong's landing,
near the Keiser school house, six miles
north of the city.
The drowning followed an attempt
on the part of the boy to swim to an
island in midstream. He was apparent
ly taken with cramp when half way
across. His companions were unable to
Teach him before he sank, and nearly
twenty minutes elapsed before the
body was recovered. Dr. Pomeroy, who
was with a picnic party in the vicinity,
directed the efforts at resuscitation
pending the arrival of the pulmotor
from the Salem fire department, but
without avail. The pulmotor was used
for an hour.
Mrs. Walter Burnett, wife of nn Ore
gon Electric luotormau, is a sister of
the drowned boy.

Three Found Dead by
Big Girls Out Riding
Lake Forest, 111., July 24. Side by
Bide in the little morgue here today
lay the body of a man of 24, a woman
of 22, and a babe of six months. They
all died of pistol shots, apparently
fired by the man. Tje bodies were
found Sunday on the grounds of the
Onwentsia club, war here. Two young
society girls, taking pn early morning
horseback ride, made the grim discov
ery. The authorities derided that the
man came from Flint, Mich., as his hat
contained a Flint, Mich., dealer's
name and bore the initials "L. A.
C. " Early today the police had not
received word from Flint giving any
idntification, but believe that the
man had been employed by the Buick
Mjotor company at that place.
llanna Jensen, keeper of a boarding
house, said the three came to her as
boarders a few days ago. They were
known to her simply as Lloyd, Norm
and baby Arthur. There was little to
indicate their relationship, but they
quarreled over the baby, which was ap
parently hated by Lloyd. When the
bodies were found, the man and wom
an lay beside the road three feet apart
About twenty feet away the baby was
found, it bad little clot lung on, and
had been shot through the head. A
pistol was found in the. man's hand.
The trio had apparently been shoTt
of funds, as all the money found was
two fl bills in the man s pockets.
building any moro roads south of here.
As to the road east, we have mountains
enough. The Cascades are too steep to
cross east of here." He followed this
by saying that his lines will do no work
in the way of colonizing Oregon until
the people show a disposition to assist.
"If the people want cities instead of
a built up country, I should worry,"
he said. "We will do no more work
toward colonizing Oregon until tbey
wnnt it." .
Despite the assertions of Mr. Hill,
however, it is known that the party de
voted their time to an inspection of the
big timber belt along the South San
tiam river, much of which is owned by
the Oregon & Western Colonization com
pany, of which Mr. Davidson, a member
of the party, is president. The fact
that this timber is now ripe and ready
for market is one thing -that leads to
the belief that a branch of road may bt
built up the South Santinm.

was found a-few duvs ago in Gilbert
creek by a boy while fishing, and is
now on display at Demaray's drug

amander found in the warmer spots of,
the Rockies, and south to Mexico. The
axolotl is something like a lizard, hns1
a flat tail and bushlike growth for
gills, and measures almost eight inchest
