District 44 and Vicinity.
The weather the past month has
been steady cold and the 6cveu inches
of foundation enow that came early
has been made heavier by frcqnent
light snowfalls and sleighing today is
good and if steady cold weather con
tinues two weeks longer we would
recommend boats for the lowlands,
when the break comes. The snow ly
ing npon the fields is good for the
wheat during this very cold weather
and although we have not examined
the fruit bnda we are of the opinion
that peaches have not been materially
injured as it is admitted by some
authorities that the buds will 6tand
more cold when the ground is white
with snow than they will when the
ground is black and bare.

take advantage of the instruction off
ered, for the knowledge gained will
ot only enable young farmers to get
better returns from their land but
will also help them Have money in
carrying on farm work.

Returns Three Indictment in Oregon
Land Cases Congressman Binger
Herman and Agents of Michigan
Lumber Company Also Named.
Portland, Ore., Feb. 1. After many
days of silence the federal grand jury
returned three indictments in con
nection with the investigation into the
land frauds which, it is alleged, have
been perpetrated upon the United
States government.
The first indictment is against
United States Senator John H. Mitch
ell, Congressman Binger Hermann. S.
A. D. Puter. Horace G. McKinley,
Emma L. Watson, Daniel W. Tarpley,
Elbert K. Brown, Nellie Brown, his
wife; Henry A. Young, Frank H. Wal
gamot, Clarke E. Loomis and Salmon
B. Ornisby. They are charged with
having conspired on Feb. 1. 1902, to
defraud the United States government
of public lands located in township
11 south and range 7 by preparing
and signing affidavits as to the occu
pation and settlement of these lairds.
Senator Mitchell is specifically
charged with having, at Washington.
D. C on March 3, 1902. unlawfully
prepared an affidavit for Emma L.
Watson to sign, in which Mrs. Watson
untruthfully swore that she was a
bonafide settler on a portion of theso
lands. It also charges that Senator
Mitchell prepared unlawfully an affi
davit for S. A. D. Puter to sign, in
which Puter is alleged to have sworn
that he knew the contents of the Wat
son affidavit were true. The indict
ment charges that Mitchell received
as a compensation for bis alleged
services the sum of $2,000, paid to
him by Puter. The indictment goes
on to state that in pursuance of the
conspiracy Senator Mitchell intro
duced Puter to William A. Richards,
assistant commissioner of the general
office at Washington, stating that Pu
ter was one of the most honorable cit
izens in the state.
The second indictment is against
Henry W. Miller, Frank E. Kincart.
Martin G. Hoge and Charles Nickel!,
late of Medford, Ore. It charges that
these persons on Aug. 31. 1904, unlaw
fully conspired to procure 100 other
persons to commit perjury by making
false oaths that certain lands in the
Medford land district, known as tim
ber and stone lands, were being
bought in good faith and not for pur
poses of speculation. These persons
falsel; swore that they had not con
tracted to sell these lands, when in
fact they were buying them on spec
ulation. The third indictment charges Mayor
William Davis of Albany, Ore., with
1 having uttered a false affidavit.
No specific charge is made against
Mr. Hermann, as is done in the case
of Mr. Mitchell. The indictment has
the twofold object of connecting El
bert K. Brown and his wife with the
case and removing any illegality that
might have occurred when Messrs.
Mitchell and Hermann were first In
dicted. At that time Mr. Heney was
assistant United States district attor
ney and for fear that he might not
be vested with ample authority to, of
his own volition cause a legal indict
ment, it was thought best to reindict
under the same charges. Kfhcart
and Miller, named in the second in
dictment, are said to be agents of a
lumber company in Michigan.

about seeing two torpedo boats. He
said: "I first saw a strange craft

searchlights convinced us that it was
a torpedo boat. At the same time
the signal officer reported another
boat which almost collided vith us.
We ' maneuvered to avoid a collision
and escape the torpedo which might
be discharged. The searchlights then
disclosed a torpedo boat fifteen cable

much better than the other, as the
searchlights lighted it up. The tor
pedo boats gradually drew off."

Ezra Mahaffey is lying at death's
door, shot through by n bullet from
Joe Wells' revolver. A young wife
ana mother is sitting with her child
at tho bedside of her wounded hus
band, awaiting the outcome with the
anxiety that only a yonng mother can
feel. The perpetrator of the deed,
once one of the most promising yountr
men of Columbus, energetic, talented,
wealthy, lies in jail, a physical and
moral wreck, as a result of a life of
excess and dissipation.
Three shots were tired. One entered
Mnhaffey's breast, barely missed his
heart and lodged near his spine, jnst
under the skin. The second bullet
entered his forearm, shattering his
elbow and lodging in his wrist. The
third shot barely missed Mnhaffey's
head and the ball imbedded itself in
the wall of tho room where the shoot

Drs. Mnrtyn and Evans in a difficult
but successful operation removed the
two bullets at noon today and loft the

The surgeons snid after the ojwrn

Wells' custom, Muhaffey paid, to in

at times when Wells was on one of his
frequent sprees. They had never had
any quarrels and were nlways good
friends. This was the occasion of his
piesence at tho Wells home last even

room that Wells calls his bedroom.
They were drinking and having a
friendly talk, though Mahaffey says
he was not intoxicated himself, hav

Wells' whiskey, while Wells was

bv his bed and Mahaffey was sitting
on a chair dictly in front of him and

ho w he had scared his neighbor Bar

Finally in desperation he threw him

door and fell headlong on the walk,
where he was fonnd by Mr. Hollen

was taker, down by the officers at ten

assertion that none bnt friendly words

the gun was going on, Wells said,

Mahaffey was trying to get ont of the

the victim.

The Tacmna Washington News of
January 7, contained a story about
Dr. F. J. Schug, at one time a Co
lumbus physician, partner of Dr.D.T.
Martyn, which will be read with in
terest by his Colnmbus friends. Mrs.
Schug is a sister of M. H. Wnite and
a cousin of Mrs. E. J. Young of Co
lnmbus. Following is a copy of the article
refercd to : "To woke in the morning
and find oneself heir to a fortune of
considerable proportions, the exist
ence of which one had no previous
knowledge, is an experience that falls
to very few. But that is just what
occurred to Dr. F. J.Schng of this city
and he is now enjoying the anticipa
tion of soon coming into possession of
wealth which he never dreamed. Dr.
S hug, who is one of the surgeons of
tho United States Marin9 hospital,
takes his good lack and tho congratu
lations of his many friends modestly.
Tbo knowledge that he is one of the
heirs to a fortune now in the hands
of the Swiss government came to Dr.
Schug last summer and it was by
chance only that he learned of the fact.
Seen in his offices in the Equitable
bnildiug, the doctor was loth to dis
cuss the probable nine of his inherit
ance. "I am much in the dark regarding
the matter at present, and as to the
valno of the legacv I know abso

"That I cannot say," replied the
doctor. "It may be and it may fall
far below these figures. All I know
is that I am one of the heirs to a for
tune left by my great grandfather on
my mothers side and that the heritago
consists of money and personal poper

ment. "

yet to establish in order to prove the
