Mangold against the Adrian Irrigation com pany was started before Judge E. H. Sullivan and a jury in the superior court yesterday. Mangold demands $100,000 damages as a result of what Ihe charges was a scheme to defraud !him. ' He alleges that C. F. Berlet con : tracted to purchase 2773 acres of land in Douglas county from O E. ' Loving and M. R. McMahon. The j plaintiff contracted to buy the land from Berlet. The irrigation com pany, formed for handling such pro jects, and of which Mangold was a director, was. according to the plaint iff, to buy the land but failed to make ; first payment in time for Berlet to ; make his first payment to Loving and McMahon. For that reason Ber let's interest lapsed and so did Man ! gold's in Berlet's equity. Later the irrigation company se i cured the land from Loving and Mc- Mahon. Irrigation systems have been installed and the land is said to be | worth $1,000,000. Mangold says his i share of that should be $100,000. | The company asserts that plaintiff ! and Berlet were in collusion to sell the land for their own benefit to the company. For that reason it refused to buy Berlet's interest. It is denied that there was fraud on the part of the company. J. 0.

INVOLVE FOREIGN NATIONS Spokane, Nov. 15.—Officials of the Industrial Workers of the World, directing the "free speech" movement in Spokane, are bending every effort to involve the government in com plications with foreign nations as a result of the threatened deportation of aliens under the immigration laws of the United States. Vincent St. John, counsel for the union, has in structed the officials to Insist upon the return to Spokane of all persons cited Tor deportation, and i» is given out tbat this plan will be followed. The ranks of the "modern revolu tionists" as the champions of free speech call themselves, are sadly de pleted, following the wholesale ar rests during the last ten days, and a call has been issued for recruits. They have also enlisted several hun dred women from various parts of the northwest and elsewhere, who say they are "ready to go to jail to do their share of the work, so far largely done by men." The "hunger strike," self-imposed jby prisoners at the city hall and the jail in the Franklin school, has been i broken. This is a change of tactics by the revolutionists, who believe they have the best of the argument. Mayor Piatt and Chief of Police Sul livan are equally emphatic in their claims, declaring also that the city ordinance, charging curbstone orators with disorderly conduct, will be en forced in the future as in the past. Governor Hay. who stopped in Spokane on the way from Faribault. Minn., to the state capital, announced after looking the situation over with Secretary of State Howell, that there is no need for the presence of the state militia, as the police have the matter well in hand and no outbreak is feared.

Member of the Associated Press t BREWSTER DITCH PROGRESSING OKANOGAN POWER & IRRIGA TION COMPANY MOVING DIRT ON BIG PROJECT — WENAT CHEE PEOPLE INTERESTED. Work has begun on the big ditch at Brewster in which Marvin Chase and L. P. Horton, of this city, are interested. The project contemplates the watering of 11,000 acres of. rich fruit land along the Methow river, between Carlton and Pateros, and a large acreage of land on the Brew ster flat. W. J. Fleming, of Carlton, who was in the city yesterday, says that the work has begux near Carlton and a number of teams are now at work. Concerning the work on the ditch, the Pateros Reporter says: "Denny-Blain people of Seattle, with whom are associated Walter Granger and Marvin Chase, have com menced work on the high line project near Carlton. Last week the O. P. I. company filed a water right on the Methow river at Carlton for 1.000 cubic feet per second of time and the report comes down the line that at present they are hard at work throw ing dirt on the big project and are buying right-of-way for the canal and paying for same. We do not know J what effect this will have on the j Hunner-Cran# proposition or whether | they have sold out their interest to the O. P. I. people. All we know is j that there is dirt moving on the pro ject and that looks good. This pro-' ject when completed will water over i 11. 000 acres tributary to Pateros and assures us a good future. We have the assurance that this company will push the work to an early comple tion, if they are not hindred by court proceedings regarding water rights. "We are glad to see someone at work on the bigr can?" but we hope it does not mean a shut out for Messrs. Hunner & Crane, who have spent over two years time and con siderable money in promoting the project." OVER-RIDES RAIL ROAD COMMISSION GREAT NORTHERN NEED NOT OBEY ORDER OF STATE RAIL ROAD COMMISSION IN REGARD TO ACCOMMODATIONS. The order of the state railroad commission in reference to numerous improvements along the Great North-: crn railroad has been turned down by the superior court. Judge Wilson R. Gay, of Seattle, has given a deci sion by which the Great Northern will not be compelled to put on an additional day train between Ana cortes and Burlington and will not have to do a great many other things ordered by the state board of rail road commissioners. The railroad also was sustained in its appeal from the order to construct 200 feet additional team track at the town of Custer and the citizens of Sultan lose their fight for a removal of their present depot and a widen ing of the depot platform. The court saw no reason for com pelling changes in sanitation at Lea venworth, Wilson Creek and all other towns along the route of the main line, which preferred similar com plaints. The protest of the residents of La- \ mona, which was indorsed by the rail road commission, also did not appeal to the court. They wanted their de pot moved across the track. Another important ruling over threw the order of the railroad com mission compelling Great Northern express trains to stop at Blue Creek and Kulzer's Spur. Judge Gay gave a memorandum j decision and will follow this later, with a full opinion dealing with other! matters that were objected to by the I railroad when the commission made! its finding. Thomas Benton, a fruit grower of the Chelan country. Is in the city to day and will leave on No. 4 for a several days' stay at the National Apple Show In Spokane. C. R. Mohr left Saturday for his home in Butte, Mont., after spending a month here on business.

Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily NO HOPE FOR MINE VICTIMS CONCEDED THAT 300 TO 400 VIC TIMS OF ST. PAUL MIKE ARE DEAD IN GREAT MINE DIS ASTER. Cherry, 111., Nov. 15.—Shortly be fore noon hope was all but aban doned by relatives' of 300 or more men numbered as victims of the greatest mine disaster in the history of Illinois. That not one man in the hundreds entombed in the St. Paul Railway company's mine will be taken from it alive is the opinion of those at the scene. The rescuing party is unable to penetrate deep into the mine on account of the smoke and gases and no bodies have been re covered. The oxygen helmets of the rescu ers are useless in the smoke and gas choked chambers. Those entering the mines say it is still on fire and caving badly. That every bit of life giving air has been exhausted many hours ago is cer tain. The fact that no bodies have been discovered by the rescuers in dicates that when the imprisoned men realized they were penned hope lessly in a pit from which rhere was no exit they rushed to the further most end of the vein, where some air might have been found to keep them alive until help came, but in all prob ability this meagre supply of air was long ago exhausted, in the opinion of the experts who are on the ground. The St. Paul company, owners of the mine, will provide for the burial !of the victims and a commtitee* has I been appointed 'by President Earling to devise a plan of relief for the des titute. Another outbreak of the fire in the mine this afternoon prevented any efforts to take out the bodies of the fire victims. The mine was quickly sealed again, thus virtually ending all hope of any men being rescued alive. 816 PLANS FOR LAKE CHELAN PETITION BY GREAT NORTHERN TO OVEHFIiOW STATE SHORE LANS IN CONNECTION WITH POWER DEVELOPMENT PLANS.

Cook, inspector of the Equit able Savings & Loan association, of Portland, Ore., is registered at the Great Northern, on one of the semi annual visits here that he has been making for many years.

Spokane, Nov. 15. —Miles Poindex ter of this city, representative in con gress from the Third Washington dis trict, will be a candidate to succeed Samuel H. Piles in the United States senate. Declaration of the Intention of Judge Poindexter was made by some of his most intimate friends yesterday. To questions Congress man Poindexter replied: •'Many of my friends have been urging that I make the race, and I shall make an announcement of my plans ifl the near future." The congressman smiled genially when the subject was broached, but no amount of questioning would in duce him to commit himself further. But one of the congressman's most intimate friends and advisers said later in the evening: "Put it strong that he will be a candidate, and his friends are of the belief that the matter should be made public. His supporters contend that Spokane is entitled to a senator, and he is the man to fill the bill. With that end in view the vast portion of the state lying east of the mountains has been sounded thoroughly in his behalf, and is supporting him to a fin ish. A large number of the dissatis fied party men west of the mountains regard him as the logical man to step in and take the toga, thereby relieving the bitter strife that already is threat ening in King county because of the candidacy of John L. Wilson, Judge Burke and probably of Senator PMes Ito succeed himself, although the lat- S ter is in the peculiar position of not | desiring to announce whether he will I retire." Friend* are Active. Although Judge Poindexter has been busy shaping his affairs to re turn to Washingteon for the coming session of congress, his friends have been active in sounding :ne senator ial situation. They are satisfied thor oughly with the result of reports. Several meetings have been held in this city in the last three weeks, and it is said representation from ev ery county east of the mountains and from the cheif towns and cities in this territory was at at the con ferences, correspondence has been kept up with the local political lead ers in different communities, al though no press bureau has been es tablished. On the other hand, press. I bureaus are said to have been start ied by the Burke and Wilson forces in Seattle, but the Poindexter peo ple are of the belief that the Coast press bureau has proved of little value. The Poindexter campaign has been carried on as between friends in different parts of the state. The Poindexter men declare that i his brief record in congress clearly has proved him a fighting leader. On the other hand, these Poindexter men assert. Senator Piles has noi made pood in attracting attentioa either to himself or his state. They contend that as regards the other candidates. Judge Burke is an un tried quantity in the national erena and the same is true of Senator John L. Wlbon as regards present day problems, despite the fact that in past years Mr. Wilson had extensive experience in public life at Washing ton. It also is asserted that Senator Wilson is for harmony and the Joe Cannon leadership policy. while Judge Poindexter firmly is opposed to Cannon, is a militant worker in congress and seems destined to shine with such men as La Follette. It is known that some of the Poin dexter people have been active on the Coast during the last two weeks, and a report was current yesterday that a number of Coast papers and political leaders may espouse his cause within the next two weeks. The probabili ty is that a Coast meeting for Mr. Poindexter will be held In a few days. In Seattle, bitter strife is threaten ed between the admirers of Judge Eurke, John L. Wilson and Senator Piles. The King county forces are said to be divided among these three n.en. and reports that have reached the Poindexter people are that har mony in King county seems extreme ly remote as between these candi dates. Fair and ('old. Washington—Fair tonight and on Tuesday, ahd continued cold.
