BULLETINS CHEER
GAYNOR'S FRIENDS
Doctors Insist Depressing Ru
mors About Mayor's Condi
tion Are Not Correct
BEST DAY SINCE HIS INJURY
Public Impatiently Awaits An
nouncement That Wounded
Man Is Out of Danger
(Associated Press)
NEW YORK, Aug. 17.—Officially
nothing but good news came from St.
Mary's hospital in Hoboken today and
tonight concerning the condition of
Mayor Gaynor. AccorUine to his phy
sicians this was his best day since
being shot in the neck last Tuesday.
This statement was contained in the
following bulletin, both positive and
optimistic, issued at 9:15 o'clock to
night instead of 9:30 as heretofore:
"Today has been the best day the
mayor has experienced since his injury,
and this evening he is stronger than
at any previous time. There is no
foundation for the alarming rumors
which have been in circulation. If
conditions continue as satisfactory as
they are now only two daily bulletins
will be issued hereafter.
"ARLITZ,
"BREWER,
"STEWART,
"DOWD,
"PARISH."
niBLTO DOUBTS RErOBTS
Reports from the hospital that the
bulletins from the mayor's bedside
were masking the whole truth were
widely current this afternoon and even
ing with considerable basis for cre
dence beneath them.
Robert Adamson, the mayor's secre
tary, is said to have stated that the
mayor's condition today was as serious
as at any time since he was shot.
Other reports had it that the glands in
the mayor's neck had begun to swell,
indicating the development of dreaded
blood poisoning; and from this it w;is
reasoned that if the swelling increased
pressure on one of the blood vessels
abraded by the passage of the bullet
might Induce a hemorrhage with fatal
results. •
Mr. Adamson had answered all these
statements which found their way
into print with a flat denial. None of
the doctors in attendance would even
discuss them.
>O PROMISES OF RECOVERY
There remains the fact that there has
arisen a conscientiousness among those
In touch both with the public and with
the sick room that the official bulletins
are rigorously confined to the stated
symptoms, and at no time have they
ventured an assertion that tjie mayor
is out of danger or any definite promise
of his ultimate recovery.
Counterbalancing the disquieting ru
mors, the mayor was able to eat milk,
toast and egss, the nearest approach to
solid food since he was wounded. The
immediate members of his family still
Bee him only for brief intervals, and
nobody else but the doctors, Secretary
Adamson and the nurses see him at all.
GOVERNOR IS DEBATING
SPECIAL SESSION CALL
SACRAMENTO, Aug. 17— Governor
Gillett is still debating the proposal
made by the San Francisco Panama-
Pacific exposition management to call
a special session of the state legisla
ture for the purpose of submitting to
the people a constitutional amendment
so bonds of $5,000,000 may be voted for
the furtherance of San Francisco's
claim to the l'Jls world's fair.
The governor is known to favor the
propositions and he was expected to
issue a call to the legislature today.
But he had this to say:
■'I have been so busy since receiv
ing the letter from the San Francisco
people that 1 have not had time even
to consider their communication. I
had hoped to be able to go to San
Francisco and talk the matter over
with them, but have been unable to
do so. I shall arrive at a decision
soon and take the necessary action if
I think it best to call the legislature
together."
IDAHO FOREST FIRES ARE

SPOKANE, Wash., Aug. 17.—Lnte re
ports indicate that the forest fires in
the Clearwater forest reserve, Idaho,
are gaining headway. The iires are
■aid to extend'a length of 30 miles

person being known to have perished.
Fire in the lower district extends
from post 23 to post 31, a distance
or nine miles, while fire on the hills
extends from camp 62 to Boulder creek,
a distance of 20 miles.

INDIANS' MILLIONS
ENRICH LAWYERS
Commissioner Submits Amazing
Statement of Fees Collected
from Several Tribes
FEDERAL GUARDIAN IGNORED
Instances Cited Where Charges
Amounted to Quarter of In
volved Property Value
[Associated Preasl
SULPHUR, Okla., Aug. 17.—1n re
sponse to a request from Cofnmls
sioner of Indian Affairs Valentine, the
special congressional committee in
vestigating- land affairs, forwarded to
day to Beverly, Mass., a Statement
covering the amount of attorneys' fees
paid by the Indians. It is said to
be for the use of President Taft.
The statement covers a period of 20
years and embraces money paid out as
contingent fees. It shows the total
money so paid was $3,893,304.54.
Among the largest fees was $75!>,000,
paid by the Chlckasaw Indians to re
cover $2,858,798. The New tfoik Indians
paid $204,543 to recover less than $2,
--000,000. The eastern Cherokee* paid
a fee of $720,000. In some instances
the fees paid were as high as 25 per
cent of the property involved.
The request of the committee for the«
figures is taken as indicating that
President Taft has decided to interest
himself in the present investigation
which grew out of Senator Gore's
charges of attempted bribery.
VAST PBOSIX FOB LAWYERS
The contracts now held by J. F. Mc-
Murray call for a 10 per cent fee for
the sale of $30,000,000 worth of land
in this state. In presenting the rig
ures before the committee Representa
tive riiillip P. Campbell of Kansas
said:
"It is a rather startling condition
of affairs that such an amount of
money v.-as paid by the Indians to
American lawyers when the govern
ment itself is the guardian of the In
dians."
Indians have so much legal business
that they have to employ lawyers by
the half dozen, according to Douglas
H. Johnson, governor of the Chicka
saw tribe of Indians, who testified to
day before the congressional commit
tee.
Johnson testified that he was unable
to state for what service some of the
lawyers were paid. They were em
ployed previous to the existence of the
present contracts, which provide for
the sale of $30,000,000 worth of land
with a 10 per cent fee to McMurray.
SUMS FOR LEGAL SERVICES
Here are some of the expenditures,
which, according to Governor Johnson,
were made by the Indians £ot legal
services, most of the lawyers being
employed simultaneously:
Paid J. P. McMurray's law firm $5000
a year with $5200 expenses; paid Mc-
Murray's firm another $5000 a year at
the same time on another contract;
paid McMurray $750,000 as special fee
in the citizenship cases with an ex-'
pense account of $300,000; paid four
other attorneys an aggregate of $10,
--000 a year.
It was the belief. Governor Johnson
testified, that without the employ
ment of so many attorneys, the Indians
would have lost millions of dollars.
Johnson said that in the sale of In
dian property in Mississippi it had
cost the government $6,000,000 to sell \
$2,000,000 worth of land.
In reply to questions put to him in
his previous examination, in which he
was asked to explain how he came to
deposit $75,000 to his personal account
after McMurray had been paid the
$750,000 fee, Governor Johnson declared
he never possessed $75,000.
SECRETARY OF INTERIOR
CONTROLS INDIAN LAND
Law Gives Cabinet Officer Un
usual Powers
PORTLAND, Ore., Aug. 17.—Accord
ing to Judge Robert S. Bean of the
federal court here, the act passed by
congress June 25, appears to have de
prived the United States courts of
jurisdiction in all Indian matters, with
the possible exception of criminal pro
ceedings. Judge Bean's announcement
to that effect today was received with
great Interest and it was pointed out
that the law is of special moment to
the oklahomans who recently have
been declared to have an undue inter
eat In Indian lands. The fact that,
under the new law, the secretary of the
interior apparently has been give au
thority heretofore vested in the federal
courts has also excited comment, Let
ters setting forth the contention made
by Judge Bean will be sent to the
congressiuii.il committee now taking
testimony in Oklahoma.
The issue was railed by Judge Bean
today when United States District At
torney MoCourt asked for decrees in
a number or cases involving titles to
lands in all allotments and distribu
tion among heirs. Judge Bean de
clined to assume jurisdiction, citing
the act referred to as his guide. Ho
stated that he had Just discovered the
act among the "pamphlet laws" sent
out by the department of justice.
The act of June 25 confers on the
secretary of the interior the right to
determine what Indian lands .^-liall be
awarded, to search out and determine
what heirs shall be recognised, and to
whom patent shall issue, also the
right to approve or disapprove the
gale of any allotment.
The act is of more far reaching ef
feoi in other western states than in
Oregon, for In Oklahoma, Colorado,
Arizona, New Mexico and Montana
large tracts Of land are being held in
trust by the government, the tribes
not being able to secure titles.
PREPARE INDIAN LAND
DATA FOR PRESIDENT
WASHINGTON, Auk. 17.— The in
terior department is preparing data for
dent Taft in regard to the five
civilized tribes in Oklahoma. The in
formation will embrace all the fact!
in the department's proposition relat
ing to the lands and funds of tin In
and the amounts paid by the red
in ii In counsel fees.
The statement will cover a number
of years. It is not known for what
specific purpose the president Is seek
ing the data.

LAND OPERATOR DIES
WHILE CLOSING DEAL
Willard G. Halstead Succumbs to
Heart Disease in Trust
Company's Office
While closing a big leal estate deal,
Willard Ci- Halstead, a pioneer of Los
Angeles, sank back in his chair in the
office of the Title Insurance & Trust
company yesterday morning, and died
of heart failure. Just a sigh—a sud
den relaxation of the muscles, and all
was over—not a sound coming from his
lips as he died.
Mr. Halstead was a native of Rome,
N. Y. He served two years In the
Army of the Potomac during the Civil
War, enlisting in 1861 and retiring
from the army with the rank of lieu
tenant and the honor of membership
in the Loyal Legion.
In 1867 he came to California and
ever since had been actively identified'
with the development of Southern Cali
fornia. For many years he was su
perintendant of the Banning Interests
at Wilmington and San Pedro. In
the last sexenteen years he had made
his home in Yuba county, northern
California, where he was president and
manager r'. the Excelsior Water and
Mining company.
He was married to Florence P. Bent
of Los Angeles, daughter of the late
H. K. W. Bent, in 1877. Among his
acquaintances, he was known as a man
of sterling integrity, and always oc
cupied positions of large responsibility.
BELLINGER RETICENT ON
CALIFORNIA PRIMARIES
Secretary Still Determined Not to
Resign Until Requested
by Taft
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 15.—0n his
arrival here from Klamath Falls to
doy, Secretary of the Interior Uallin
ger said that he still was determined
not to resign until requested to do so
by President Taft. He refused t.> dis
cuss the result of the California pri
maries and when he was asked for his
opinion on the nomination of William
Kent for congress from the second Cal
ifornia district he merely smiled.
Accompanied by Chief Law Officer
Plnney of the reclamation service, the
tary is impeding the various
rnment Irrigation projects in the
west. Friday he will leave for Yo
aemite valley, where he will spend four
days. He will return to Seattle be
fore going to Washington.
Referring to his conservation pol
icy Mr. BalUnger declared that it was
d on his experience as a westerner
of the needs of the -.sent. Among the
improvements which lie will advocate
on his return to Washington will be
better roads and increased hotel ac
commodations for Yosemite valley.
SCHULTZ EXAMINATION
SET FOR AUGUST 29
Self-Confessed Murderer Is Study
to Officers
Otto Schultz, self-confessed slayer of
Mrs. Freda Schultz Castine, will have
his preliminary examination before
Justice Summerfleld August 29. That
date was set yesterday by Justice
Stoele, sitting in Justice Summerfleld's
court. The complaint against the
prisoner was sworn to by Deputy
Sheriff Martin Aguirre.
Schultz apparently evinced no inter
est in the legal formality when the
warrant was read to him though he
knows that the penalty for the crime
which he committed may be death.
To members of Sheriff Hammers
force, the man is a study. He appears
to be contented with his surrounding
though through all of yesterday after
noon he lara on his bunk and stared
up at the ceiling. He readily admits
his crime and recites the details with
out a show of emotion. As he cannot
speak English, he does not associate
with the other prisoners in his "tank."
DECLARES LOCAL HOTEL
EQUALS BEST IN PARIS
San Franciscan Tells of Visit to
Large European Hostelries
J. C. Furness, a well known hotel
man of San Francisco, with many
friends and acquaintances in Los An
geles and Pasadena, having resided for
three years in the latter city, is at the
Alexandria. After a five months' trip,
in which time he has circled the globe
inspecting all the best hotels along
his route with the view of picking up
knowledge that may help him in con
ducting hjs business in San Fran
cisco, he makes the following state
ment:
"Paris la the only city abroad that
has hotels ranking with the Alexan
dria of Los Angeles and the St. Fran
cis of San Francisco. Of all the places
that I visited, Melbourne, Australia,
next to Paris, was the only city having
hotels ranking with ours on the Pacific
coast."
Mr. Furness expects to return to
San Francisco in three days.

POSTPONE EXAMINATION
OF BELL UNTIL SEPT. 6
l-Yank M. 8011, the Texan who killed
Attorney O. P. Widaman at ArtMla
station several weeks ago, was taken
Into Justice Summerfleld's court yes
terday morning and his preliminary
examination postponed until September
6 by Justice Steele, who was on the
bench.
Deputy Constable Benjamin placed
handcuffs on Bell on the trip from the
county Jail to the courtroom though
Bell said:
"I am a gentleman and will give you
no trouble. Please do not submit mo
to the humiliation of the cuffs."
Bell again made this request when
he was ready for the return trip to the
jail and Constable Cohn acceded to It.
HARBOR TERMINAL RATES
EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 10
New Railroad Law Known as the
Taft Bill Goes Into Ef
fect Today
Terminal rates to Los Angeles har
bor and Redondo Beach will not become
effective until October 10, when they
will be filed with the Interstate Com
merce commission. It was at first an
nounced that the new schedule would
go into effect yesterday, this notice
having been given out several weeks
ago by the Transcontinental Freight
bureau of Chicago, which has charge
of the preparation and filing of the tar
iff.
The new railroad law, passed by the
last congress and known as the Taft
bill, goes into effect today and the rail
roads filed the new tariff yesterday, in
order to have it done before this new
bill should be effective.
The filing of the tariff before the
Taft bill becomes effective was made
necessary by a clause in the new law
which provides that no tariff filed after
it becomes effective shall . give a rate
between two points that is lower than
rates given to intermediate points—ex
cept by special permission from the
interstate commerce commission after
careful investigation.
The terminal rates from the east
to this coast are lower than the rates
from the east to interior places back
from the coast, therefore, had not the
harbor rates been filed before today,
they would have conflicted with the
Taft bill.

BEQUEATHS NEPHEW $20;
CONTESTS AUNT'S WILL
Former Jockey Claims a Large
Share in Estate of Mrs.
E. M. School
Claiming that Mrs. E. M. School, late
proprietor of the Marlboro hotel, who
died Monday, August 8, leaving an
estate estimated at $75,000, was not
mentally competent to make a will.
Jay Ransch, a nephew of the deceased,
has engaged counsel to contest the will,
he having only been bequeathed $20.
Jay Ransch is a former jockey, once
prominent in racing circles on both
sides of the Atlantic. He believes that
Mrs. School should have left him a
large part of the estate. With the ex
ception of the small amount willed him,
the estate was bequeathed to the de
cedent's granddaughter, Kissie Ransch.
During the latter part of last May
Mrs. School caused the arrest of Jay
Ransch, she alleging that he had
threatened to kill Kissie Ransch.
Mrs. School was very ill at that time
and the preliminary examination of the
Jockey was held in her apartments by
Police Justice Rose. Owing to the
woman not being able to testify as to
the threats made by the defendant, the
case against him was dismissed.
The jockey's attorneys are now pre
paring for the contest, which will be
heard in the superior court next month.
