LAND DEEDS FORGED

PORTLAND, Ore., Dec. 4.— A special
dispatch to the Evening Telegram from
Sales states that State Land Agent
West has discovered evidence that state
land board ! deeds have been forged by
the land frauds conspirators. Should
West's suspicions prove correct an even
worse condition in the public land con
spiracy in this' state will" be "revealed.
It Is believed that state deeds have been
placed on record in every county in the
state. . ' V . .. '• . ';■ ■■--• ,-. ;;
It will require a long period to ascer
tain the true extent of the latest phase
In tha frauds, as the only sure way of
tracing the supposed fraudulent deeds
is when the victims of the conspirators
offer to pay .taxes on the land. When
two or more persons offer to pay taxes
on the same piece of land the county
officials will be able to discover the
fraud, as was the case when two or
more claimants offered to pay the land
board for the same piece of land for
which they held- certificates of sale,
thus giving the first inkling to the state
authorities that a conspiracy of gigan
tic proportions had been perpetrated by
which It is possible the conspirators
may have secured many millions of dol
Mr. West believes that if the certifi
cates of sale could have been so cleverly
forged the conspirators may readily
have found a means of counterfeiting
state land deeds.

Task of Forming New Government.
Rosebery Will Be Com.
By Associated Press.
LONDON, Dec. 4.— The political crisis
In the United Kingdom reached a cli
max today, when Arthur J. Balfour, the
premjer, formally tendered the resig
nations of himself and the members of
his cabinet to King Edward, who ac
cepted them. His majesty has invited
Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman to an
Interview tomorrow morning, when he
will offer him the task of forming a
new cabinet. Sir Henry will accept,
and within a few days, may bo few
hours, a new government will be
formed. A brief official announcement
was made tonight that the cabinet had
resigned, that the king had accepted
the resignations of Ills ministers, and
that Sir Henry Campboll-Bannerman
had been sent for.
It would now appear that the entira
program has been cut and dried for
Home time,' and it Is even probable that
the Liberal leader has already selected
his cabinet, though this, like every
thing else tin connection with British
officialdom, must be left to surmise.
It may be stated as certuln that Lord
Rosebery will ,be entirely Ignored in
the make up of the cabinet, and that
John Morley will be one of the chief
advisers of Sir Henry In drawing up
the list of his official family, which
will be presented to his majesty.
Mr. Morley Is considered likely to go
to the Indian office, and it is probable
that Herbert Henry Asqulth will be
chancellor of the exchequer. The for
eign affairs portfolio will go either to
Lord Elgin or Sir Edward Grey, though
the latter Is considered likely to be
made secretary for the colonies. ',':,'"
Privy Council Meeting Postponed
The meeting of the privy council,
which was set for tomorrow morning,
has been postponed. It Is understood
that the king will leave town tomor
row afternoon to be tho gueßt at Lord
Alllngton's house party at Crichel,
Wlmborne, but this 1s still indefinite.
A partial list of the honors usually
conferred on. the. retirement of a gov
ernment wag issued tonight. It includes
a peerage for Sir Thomas Sanderson,
the retiring under secretary of state
for foreign affairs, and a' number of
minor honors.' -It Is expected that the
honors to. be conferred pn prominent
members of . the i retiring government
jvJtt -,be fitunounend s-Hortly; ■<~ ; '--> ■.#«■**«
•uOne thing is ' certain— that Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman has explained his
attitude on home rule for Ireland .to
those j Liberal < leaders who are known
to be opposed to home rule on the lines
of the last bills Introduced in parlia
ment.. Slnoe his speech at Stirling,
which raised such a furore, Sir Henry
has not made any statement, but It is
confidently asserted In the Liberal
clubs that he is ready i with a policy
which will secure the adhesion of the
nationalists and at the same time avoid
raising the issue as one of the most
prominent planks In his platform.
There is an uncertainty as to when
the dissolution of parliament will be ef
fective, but it is not considered proba
ble until after the new year.
An Interesting feature of the political
situation Is the prospect of a closer al
liance between the Irish and the Labor
parties In the new parliament. James
Keir Hardle, the Socialist and inde
pendent member, in a political speech
tonight, frankly invited such an alli
ance. He pointed out that 45 labor
members, combined with 75 Irish mem
bers, would provide a voting strength
which no government, however strong,
could afford to ignore.

amount of Jf>2,988 for money loaned, now
clue and which the defendant has ad
mitted his Inability to pay. The de
fendant company was declared to have
heen solvent prior to July 7, 1904, on
which dnte It came under a different
controlling Interest, and assumed large
obligations, one of these being the pur
chase of 110,000 shares of Pere Mar-

Attorney Stevens nt once presented
the answer to the company, explaining
that It was sworn to by Vice President
Brownell of the Cincinnati, Hamilton &
Dayton railway, on the authority nf
the bonrd of directors. Insolvency Is
admitted, the statement of a deficit of
more than $6,000,000 with various suits
threatened being made In the answer.
Jurlpo Lurton was reluctant, he said,
to mnke tho appointment, but under
nil the circumstances he felt It wus for
the Interest of nil concerned, but he
said that while he would agree to a re
ceivership he wanted to say thnt .he
would not agree to the naming of any
railway man who might run the prop
erty In some special Interest, but would
prefer to appoint some one who was In
no way connected with railways or with
this proceeding. The suggestion of the
name of Judson Harmon was accepted
by attorneys for both plaintiff and de
fendant, nnd was approved by Judge
Lurton, who thereupon named him as
receiver, fixing the bond nt $100,000.
An ancillary application was then
made by Mr. Maxwell on behalf of Wal
ter B. Horn of New York, a creditor of
the Pere Mnrquette to the extent of
$345,368, for the nppointment of a re
ceiver nlso for that property, which
was alleged to be insolvent.
An answer similar to that filed In the
first and main procedure was presented
by Attorney Stevens, admitting insol

served by the action proposed. The
court thereupon ordered the placing of
the Pere Marquette. In so far as it wns

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4.— The assem-'
bllng today of the members 'of ■ the
Fifty-ninth congress for their first ses-^
slon was marked by no unusual | lncl-^ :
dcntu, but it attracted to the capital"
crowds of spectators who took a. lively^ 1 .
Interest . in the proceedings^ The day'
was beautiful. The sun shone brightly
and the air was keen. Society was out'
in force and filled the reserved gal-r ;
lerles, while visitors unable to ; find ,
seats roamed - the - corridors to catch ' :
glimpses of public men.' . :.
In the senate the proceedings were
brief, but most of the spectators seemed
to find as much to' interest them ;in" ■
observing the senators who remained^/
on the floor after adjournment as they V
could have experienced had the ses
slon continued longer.
■ The house was in session for more,
than three hours, and while the pro- }
ceedings followed the program that had '•"■'■.
marked, the opening of congress "for, V,
many years, there was enough of inter- V
est to hold an, exceptionally large au- ; .
dience during the entire time. . , ; %.!
' One. notlcoable . feature was the ab-V
sence of flowers which heretofore have. '
been common in both ; chambers; OnV. :
opening . days , the ' display ] had been so I .
great that the. exhibition, alone 'would '",
have .'been.' sufficient" to. 'draw great' -
crowds, and the ,, absence of floral f.
tributes,., due to a resolution' adopted* \"
imrifediately bythe" senate" and -to "ah" 3 "
order of the speaker, robbed the occa- ;
Blon of much of its plcturesqueness. ;* *
During the session senators and . rep
resentatlves. visited, the galleries' and'
chatted with friends.
