light, I will say, in the first place
that I did obtain the loan of (ho pa
pcrs in question, but not for the
purpose which it is tho object of
the article to imply.
Since parties here have recently
caused charges to be preferred
against Mr. Swenning in the forest
sen-ice, in an effort to have him re
moved, and had brought about his
suspension pending investigation, I
was asked by him if I would not pro
cure and mail to him a copy of all
mntter on record against him, as he
was some distance away and he
wished to make an answer to the
U)on calling at tho county clerk's
office I was informed that to obtain
a copy of nlMho matter on record
would bo very expensive to me; but
it was suggested that if I was not
perticular about the same being cer
tified I might do the copying myself,
andvlwas asked to wait until per
nussion""cQuId be secured by tele
phone from the circuit judge at Ash
land, allowing me to take the pa
pers." This I did, and upon taking
the papers was given to understand
that it had been permitted by the
As to the papers destroyed, I will
fcay the only pnrt of the evidence
not returned was the shorthand notes
which at thattime I had not yet
transcribed, andwhich I was assured
by the county clerk were of no fur
ther use, as he assured 'me that m
cases of default the shorthand noten
were never transcribed and as he
said, "no one could read them."
Tho statement that tho complaint
was "tampered with" was through
no fault of mine. It was returned
as I found it. However, in case this
is found to bo true, I wish the coun
ty clerk would please recall that he
informed me himself that others had
also had the papers out, and anyone
else might have at any time taken
away a part of the evidence, and he
will also recall that I told him I was
not aware that the papers were al
lowed to go out promiscuously.
I obtained my divorco from Mr.
Swenning upon a charge of cruelty
and non-support, and was unduly in
fluenced to take the step by mv at

ASHLAND TO HAVE
WILSON SHOULD RECOGNIZE THE NORTHWEST,
A MOVEMENT is underway to secure the appointment
of .1. N. Teal as secretary of tlio interior tit Wilson's
cabinet. JsTo more fitting choice could bo made.
Mr. Teal is not apolitie.ian, but a type of public spirited
citizen who takes an active interest m public affairs and
faithfully serves tlio people without a selfish end in view.
4 To &v. Teal, more, than any one, is duo the improve
ment of the Columbia, river and its restoration as a water
way to compete with the railroad, the construction of the
(Jelilo canal mid the Portage, railroad. He is tho author of
the railroad commission law and is largely responnsible for
.he code governing water rights and power. Numerous
beneficial measures, enacted into law, bear testimony to
his untiring activity in the public's behalf.
Mr, Teal is probably tho best informed man on public
questions in tho northwest. lie knows the northwest's
needs and realizes the possibilities, lie is familiar with all
the public problems that the interior department solves,
reclamation, conservation, national parks, Indian affairs.
Alaska, rivers and harbors and internal improvements.

partnient and the northwest has suffered much in conse-
ouenec ol having no one familiar with its necessities, ft is
high time the northwest was recognized and Air. Teal is
the ideal man for the place.
WOMEN SHOULD REGISTER.
Ashland is to have a mausoleum in
Mountain View cemetery to cost
from $75,000 to $100,000 and to con
tain from 250 to 500 tombs. Steps
were taken at tho council meeting

consists of what i known us section
five in Mountain View cemetery, and
is a tract forty-Jive by one-huudrcd

ikWc are at peace with the world and prosperity dwells
among us." It is true we can stand more prosperity, but
mayors and citv councils don't create prosperitv though
they can disturb it. Petty issues only are involved and it
is hoped no factional bitterness that endangers the har
mony of tho community will be evolved.
But some of the little tilings are of vital interest to the
women. The maintainance of the public market along its
present efficient lines, the beautification of the city, the
cleanliness and sanitary arrangements, all these are at
issue and the women should be interested sufficiently to
Insure satisfactory settlement.
Medford's city council should be the first in Oregon to
recognize women by appointing them to the registration
board, which will enroll the voters. The appointment will
go a long way to insure a

$500 bail bonds as a result of his ar
rest on the charge of aiding the
Tfoseburg Brewing and Ice company
in breaking the locnl option laws. The
arrest of Mayor Micelli was due to
the activity of Governor West, who
ordered him to either resign or sev
er his connection as stockholder in
the brewery concern. Micelli re
fused to do either and in his fight
against West was upheld by the city
council of Iloeburg. He states his
arrest is a "frame-up."
AT STAR THEATRE
Sarah Bernhardt In La Tosca, Is
tbo unusual announcement tho Star
Theater makes for today and Satur
day. This picture has met with tho
greatest reception ever accorded a
film play and the state rights to It
are worth thousands of dollars. The

docs not often come to American
people and tho Star should ho crowd

Tosca who tries to save her lover's
life. Two features coming to tlio

This deals with recent press storios
which connected McCoy with a rob
