A disputed from Portland, Ore,
sny.s: S. A. I). I'liU-r, recently con
victed in this city with Horace G.
McKinley, D.inicl T. Tnrpley and
Mrs. Kiiuim Watson of conspiracy
to ik-fniud the United States gov
ernment of lands, made a statement
today in contradiction of statements
issued by United States Senator
Mitchell, indicted on Saturday last
by n federal grand jury on evidence
similar to that presented at the
criminal trial of the persons re
"When I said that I gave Sena
tor Mitchell $2,000 to use his in
fluence with Dinger Hermann to
expedite those claims in 11-7,".
said Putcr, "I told the truth, and
Senator Mitchell knows it.
"I gave Senator Mitchell $2,000
to get those patents through, and I
will say that I never regretted tell
ing anything so much in my life as
the fact that Senator Mitchell took
the money, I never toldv a living
soul in my life till I gave the details
to Mr. Heney. I never told it to
McKinley or Tarpley, my partners
in these deals. I kept an entry
book in which I made entries of
every cent spent in connection with
getting these lands to patent. All
the costs of filing were entered, as
well as railroad fares, etc. The
only entry I made of this money
given to Mitchell was '$2,000. L.'
McKinley may have had an idea of
his own where that money went,
but I never told him.
"Mitchell had no intimation
from me as to the fraudulent char
acter of the entries to this land. I
never so much as intimated it to
him. But when Hermann gave
me to understand that the land was
down and out, and that the matter
would have to be referred back to
Oregon City laud office, I went to
Senator Mitchell, and told him that
these patents would have to tro
through for the reason that if they
were referred back to the Oregon
office the whole thing would be
lost. I told him that the entry
men were scattered, and that it
would be impossible to ' get them
"I laid two $1,000 bills on the
table. Mitchell said that it was too
much I was desperate over a de
sire to get the patents through, and
told him to take it and do what he
could to influence the commissioner
(Representative Hermann) to take
the claims up and get the patents
issued. I knew that as a United
Slates senator Mitchell would have
a lot of influence with the land
office, and I was willing to pay
tha't amount to have the patents
"I knew the special agents had
made a report from the lands, but
from the nature of the report I had
no means of knowing, and I was at
a loss to know why Commissioner
Hermann threw the claims out. I
do not know to this day why he
did it, but when he told me the last
time I was before him that the
lands would have to go back to the
Oregon City laud office, I went to
see Mitchell at once. All I know
of Mr. Hermann is that after the
money was paid to Mitchell, and I
had given him inducement to make
a good hard talk, that Hermann
changed his mind. Why he did it
I did not know, and would not pre
sume to say."
Tux on Cati.
There arc 30,000,000 cats in the
United States, and they are owned
by 30,000,000 women and girls.
The reason the remaining 10,000,
000 women and girjs in the country
don't own cats is because there arc
not cats enough to go round. It
is possible, however, that the

Massachusetts, which takes the
lead in mosh matters of novel legis
lation, is trying to secure the pas
sage of a law putting n tax on cats.
Dogs arc taxable property, why
not cats? The Massachusetts wo
menmarried and spinster; have
taken up the cats in arms against
the tax proposition. The women
may win out. They have n habit
of doing so in most things.
It is much more than barely pos
sible, however, that the women in
this cat-tax matter see as darkly as
puss sees in the daytime. The
woman's cry always has been that
the sister who pays taxes should be
allowed to vote, 1 even though the
other sister were shut out of the
polling booth. No woman would
sacrifice her cat to save a two-dollar
tax. Consequently we should
have, if the other states do what
Massachusetts is trying to dor 30,

The dog is a faithful creature.
It clings to its master though evil
betide. The cat hasn't an ounce
of affection for anything but the
saucer of milk, the house of its
birth and the nearest backyard
fence. Its mistress may go to
China and the cat cares not. Care
for the person who feeds and fondles
it never killed a cat.
The dogs kill an occasional sheep
hence the tax. The cats kill
millions of song birds yearly no
tax. The dog bites rarely; the cat
scratches often. The dog bays at
the moon at midnight; the cat
caterwauls at other cats. Tax the

The Government wireless station

place where it will not be a help
less target for the guns of possible
hostile warships. The Navy De
'partraeut has rejected the proposed
site for the government wireless
telegraplw station on this island.
The site which it had been planned
to secure, was located in the vicinity
of Kahuku Point and was admir
ably situated from the standpoint
of the operation of a wireless sys
tem. It could communicate with
vessels approaching from almost
any quarter. The department de

of this decision will be that a new

Birds Kill Mosquitoes.
The nhwspapers announce with
considerable trumpet blare that
Mr. Helen Gould has "discovered"
a noted ornithologist in Col. Isaac
W. Brown, who believes that for
every insect dangerous to animal
life a bird has been created to ex
terminate it, and that after listening
to Mr. Brown, Miss Gould has sent
the colonel to Texas at her ex
pense for the purpose of making
investigations and learning, if pos
sible, what birds naturally feed
upon and destroy the boll weevil.
Townships and the United
States Agricultural Depart
ment have spent thousands
of dollars in endeavoring to find
out some way to exterminate the
mosquito. Nonpareils, if reason
ably plentiful, will clear any local
ity of flies and mosquitoes, and
they stand our northern climate
The nonpareil is unequaled for
beauty, and living almost wholly
on insects, our Agricultural Depart
ment cannot use money better than
by insuring the multiplying of this
beautiful and useful bird. Crows
are universally hunted and destroy
ed by farmers, although they are
invaluable in keeping down the de
structive cutworms. Blackbirds are
everywhere considered a nuisance,
but they are exceedingly useful to
the farmer in destroying insects.
