SATURDAY. JANUARY 2S. 1913
Dr. Harrison was puked to ro
to Andrews last Sunday to see
an old gentleman who had both
feet badly frozen but could not
leave his patients hero for that
length of time and therefore
asked that the man be brought
to town. He has heard nothing
since. It was reported the feet
were in such condition that
amputation might be necessary

Lane Elected U. S. Senator.
Harry Lane was elected United
States from Oregon by the legis

o'clock today, receiving 28 votes
in the senate and 69 votes in the
house, says a Salem dispatch of
The onlv members failing to

Senator! Bean and Calkins of
Lane county, and Representative
Meek of Washington county, who
voted for Ben Selling. A faint
swan song of protest was heard
from several members, but only
these three went so far as to veto
the instruction of the people of
The election of Dr. Lane was

Tomorrow the two houses will

of Dr. Lane will be finally de
clared. Some Legislative Bills.
The Times-Herald has received
from Senator Stewart some of
the bills introduced in that
body of the legislature. Many
of them are not of particular
interest to the people of this
county but one or two are such
that all are interested. One in
a bill giving incorporated cities
and towns exclusive control and
jurisdiction of county roads with

streets. This will eliminate con
fusion In respect to the work on
such places and define definitely
where road tax should go.
Another provides for a limited
use of the ballot for initiative
measures which should have con
sideration for tiiat privilege is
I certainly abused under present
conditions and the ballot is bur
dened by measures that are not
!of sufficient importance to the
1 entire electorate to justify.
A bill authorizing the county
treasurer to deposit public funds
in National and State banks, to
be equitably distributed and to
draw interest on daily balance is
j another bill that would have a
1 tendency to eliminate some bit-

As yet no bill respecting irri

what they provide we have not

MAN CHARGED WITH
MURDER AND ARSON
Man Found Murdered Near Doable 0 and
A. C. Yelmer't Barn Willi Seven Head
Hortei, Feed, Farm InplesMsU, tic,
Burned-Man Thought to be Demented
Accused of the Crimes.
Robt. Scheibe was brought to
this city yesterday and lodged
in jail accused of both murder
and arson. News was 'phoned
In Thursday that C. A. Volmer's
barn on his place near Iron
Mountain had been burned to the
ground together with 7 head of
horses, two wagons, harness, a
seeder, plow, hay and farm im
plements, the (ire having occured
early in the morning and that
the tracks of a man were traced
from the scene to a cabin some
distance away and that it was
t brought he was demented. The
information was also to the effect
that the man would not permit
any one to come to the cabin and
threatened them. Later it was
found that an old trapper was
dead in his camp wagon about a
mile and a half from the Double
0 ranch and upon investigation
it was found he had been mur
dered. Authorities left here Thursday
night for the scene, Marshal
Owsley going out to make an ar
rest of the man, who it was said
would not allow any one to ap
proach h i tn, Coroner Cleven
ger to hold an inquest. In the
meantime it seems Gus Bardwell
and S. S. Smith had gone to the
cabin and succeeded in getting
the man from the cabin and
brought him to. the Double O
ranch. It was rumored the man
had admitted setting fire to the
barn and had also said he killed
the old trapper, but this seems
to have been only rumored as it
is now said the man denies any
knowledge of the murder or the
The authorities came in last
night bringing in the accused
man and also the body of the old
man who was murdered. Some
are of the impression the man is
not demented at all but is rather
a bad one. He admits having
served time in the Illinois pent
tentiary for shooting at a man
Build Up Your Own Town And Community
By Purchasing Your Goods at Home
through a door. It seems he
came to that part of the country
last October but had gone away
again returning only a few days
ago. He was seen in the vicinity
of the place where the old man
was murdered on the day he was
supposed to have been killed but
there is no direct evidence that
he committed the deed.
Coroner Clevenger empaneled
a jury and made an investigation
of the murder. The dead man
was 0. II. Webster and about 66
years old. The body was found
partially on the bed in his camp
wogon where he bad evidently
been sitting at the time he was
shot and had fallen forward his
head and arm resting on a box.
He had been shot at least four
times and possibly five. Both
legs had been broken by shots
and one had passed through his
arm and there were two bullet
holes in his body.
It was found he has $127.32 in
money, three firearms, some 50
steel traps and a quantity of
hides and furs, besides some
gold nuggets, showing the crime
was not prompted for robbery.
The coroner brought all these
effects in with the body and has
some papers which he has not
yet examined which may throw
some light on whether he has
any relatives or not. He had been
in that vicinity for about two
months. The jury brought in a
verdict of murder and accuse
Scheibe of the crime. From the
evidence it was thought the man
was killed either on the 20th or
21st and the body was found on
the 33rd. The old trapper was
comfortably fixed for his busi
ness, having a convenient camp
While the evidence is all cir
cumstantial respecting the murd
er it seems the charge of arson
is more strongly fixed on the ac
cused man, as he was tracked
from the scene of the fire to the
cabin in which he was found.
It was a severe loss to Mr. Vol
mer as it was all his work horses,
machinery, feed, etc. He is a
hard working man and had been
at great expense improving his
dry farm and preparing to make
a home. Just what his loss is
we have not learned.
No doubt there will In- an in
vestigation by the procr authori
ties as to the man's sanity but
nothing had dcveloed in that
respect this morning.

stick pretty close to the cash system, for in no other way
can prices of houses who see your money before they

have a big department store right at home and the rate

a 10 lb. package will cost $1.10 from Chicago, while from
