NATURALIZATION FRAUDS
SECRET SERVICE OFFICERS SAV
MANY SEAMEN RECEIVED
BY BOGUS PAPERS.
United States Attorney Expects That
Arrests Contemplated Will
Soon Follow.
Naturalization frauds in this state
are assuming alarming proportions,
and it is believed by secret service
men investigating the matter that it
will take several weeks before the var
ious cases under consideration are
cleaned up. Arrests are expected
daily by the office of United States
Attorney Jesse A. Frye, and when they
come they will be sufficiently sensa
tional to rank with the frauds un
earthed in California, says the Seattle
Times.
It has developed that dozens of cases
started on Puget sound during the
Spanish-American war. Steamship
lines engaged in carrying government
supplies and wanting men in a hurry
officered their vessels with men who
were rushed through the naturaliza
tion mill without proper investigation.
Vessels Officered by Aliens.
It is stated that several vessels were
entirely officered from Puget sound by
men who were not entitled to natural
ization at that time. A majority of
these men are now sailing on the Pa
cific, and the investigations as to their
records are being made, of course,
from this end. Some of the best
known officers of the merchant marine
which centers in Seattle and adjacent
Sound cities are under suspicion of
fraud, and almost conclusive evidence
has been secured against many of
them.
While Capt. B. W. Bell, chief of the
local secret service office, refuses to
discuss the results of his work So far,
it is known that he has made some
startling discoveries. Recent orders
from Washington directed Capt. Bell
to spend ten days on the investigation,
but it is more than probable that this
special work will be prolonged into
weeks.
Magnitude of Frauds.
Such effective work are he and his
men doing that even those aware that
there have been many frauds here are
surprised at the magnitude of them.
While the cases here are not as
numerous as in California and other
states both on the Atlantic and the
Pacific, their importance is as great, if
not greater, than most of those here
tofore brought to light elsewhere.
Where the California frauds mount up
into the hundreds 0 n Puget Sound they
are to be found only in scores. But
those here are believed to involve
more well-known men than the Cali
fornia cases.
Capt. Bell is receiving information to
assist him in his work by private in
dividuals who have long been aware
that frouds exist. Such information
as he receives from these sources he
is keeping secret and is not allowing
those furnishing him with information
to become involved in the matter.
Dressed as a Man.
LINCOLN, Oct. 9.—Mrs. Ritta Gif
ford, attired in man's clothes, was a
prisoner today before Justice Greene
on a charge of burglary. The woman's
husband, James Gifford, was arraigned
upon a similar charge.
The man had been detected breaking
into a schoolhouse in the town of Hal
lam, ten miles south of Lincoln. When
he emerged he had a bundle of school
books and stationery under his arm.
His wife was awaiting him on the
outside and appeared to be his accom
plice.
Gifford was bound over for trial. He
insisted that his young wife was inno
cent and the justice dismissed the ac
cusation against her, but sent her to
jail to hold her as a witness.
The couple was married in Chicago
a year ago, going from there to Denver
and then deciding to travel as tramps
back to Chicago.
More Money for Moore.
WASHINGTON', D. C, Oct. 9.—On
the eve of a probable inquiry by con
gress into expenditures which now foot
up about $1,500,000, articles in praise
of Willis Moore, chief of the weather
bureau of the agricultural department
are appearing in various newspapers.
A recent article quotes Mr. Moore as
saying the weather report contributes
to the "value of American industries
to the extent of $500,000,000 annually,
and perhaps several times that
amount."
It is evident that the weather bureau
is to make another raid on congress
as soon as the present storm blows
over and that it will request further
appropriations for expanding this huge
machine.
MEETING IS POSTPONEO
GOOD ROADS ASSOCIATION CON
VENTION WILL NOT BE HELD
UNTIL NOV. 9-10.
Many Speakers Cannot Come Until
That Date Reason Assigned—Pres
ident Hill Sends Out Letter.
Auditor Honeycutt, secretary of the
Walla Walla County Good Roads as
sociation, was notified today that the
annual meeting of the Washington
State Good Roads association, schedul
ed to be held in Walla Walla next
Thursday and Friday has been postpon"
ed until November 9 and 10. The let
ter announcing a postponement of the
meeting was mailed Auditor Honey
cutt by Secretary J. B. Meikle and
is as follows:
"The annual meeting of the Wash
ington Good Roads association has
been postponed from October 12-13
to November 9-10, at Walla Walla, as
some- of the speakers cannot be there
until November. New notices have
been sent out. Please try to help us to
o have a large meeting at that time
y pending a list of the names to ln-
He and by indusing your friends
o go."
Samuel B Hill, president of the
Washington Good Roads association
is addressing the following letter to
hundreds of good road advocates
throughout the state urging them to
attend the annual meeting of the as
sociation at Walla Walla in Novem
ber.
"Seattle, October sth, 1905.
"Dear Sir: —
"You are respectfully invited to at
tend and participate in the proceed
ings of the Washington Good Roads
association at the annual meeting to
be held in the City of Walla Walla.
Washington on the 9th and 10th of
November, 1905, and to becomea mem
ber of the association by signing the
constitution thereof.
"The Washington Good Roads asso
ciation consists of public-spirited cit-
izens who are willing to devote a
small portion of their time and ener
gy to the promotion of one of the most
important interests of the people of
the country. The officers and com
mittees receive no compensation for
their work, except the satisfaction
they feel in promoting the public wel
fare, and the association has no ex
penses to pay, therefore, there are no
dues, fees or assessments to be paid
by the members.
"As this is a matter of the utmost
importance to the people of the state
of Washington, we earnestly desire the
presence at this meeting of all those
who are particularly interested in
road improvement. To that end we
ask for your assistance and co-opera
tion.
"You are earnestly requested to at
tend, and invite others to do so. Let
us have a large meeting and push the
good work along.
"Very respectfully yours.
"SAMUEL HILL. President."
FROM NORTHWEST PAPERS
After Licenses to Sell Liquor.
As a result of the announcement of
the decision of the circuit court of ap
peals, which, in effect holds that liquor
can be freely introduced and sold in
the reservation, under such regula
tions as the state laws may require
Sheriff Foresman expects to have ap
plications filed with him for at least
20 licenses to conduct saloons in the
territory which in the past tolerated
only the elusive "bootlegger."
The sheriff yesterday received one
application from an 110 resident and
he has been advised that other appli
cations will follow as soon as the full
text of the court's ruling is known.
The license fee under the state law
is $300 annually to conduct a saloon
in a village, precinct or hamlet where
the voting population is less than 150
and where the vote is greater than
150 the license is $500. —Lewiston Tri
bune.
Diphtheria at Starbuck.
The new town of Starbuck has start
ed off its municipal government with
bad luck, for diphtheria has broken
out there and one death has occurred,
that of Mrs. E. M. Davis, wife of a
brakeman on the O. R. & N. Mrs.
Davis died Tuesday last, aged about
23 years, and two of her children are
now down with that disease, and one
is hourly expected to die.
Owing to the presence of diphtheria
in that town the schools have been
closed as a precautionary measure, in
the hope of preventing its spread, but
it is feared that the disease has had
too good a start. The Davis residence
was quarantined on Tuesday.—Dayton
Courier-Press.
Car Famine in Clearwater.
"There is again a ear famine in the
Clearwater country, and this fact is
delaying the shipment of grain," said
E. W. Evans of the Vollmen-Clear
water Grain company, yesterday. "Only
local cars, after unloading, are avail
able. This fact has a tendency to
make the market dull for the reason
that the purchase of grain that cannot
be promptly moved does not appeal
strongly to grain buyers. For a period
there was a strong tendency among the
farmers to hold for a higher market,
but a considerable amount of grain is
now being sold in small lots."
Mr. Evans estimated that 60 per cen 4
of the crop of this region has been de
livered to the warehouses and that of
the total crop about 40 per cent has
been sold.—Lewiston Tribune.
INDICTED FOR MURDER.
Mrs. Jennie Pratt and Her Hired Man
Charged With Giving Poison.
ROCKWELL CITY, lowa, Octfl 9.—
An indictment has been found against
Mrs. Jennie R. Pratt and William
Persing for the murer of Mrs. Pratt's
husband, Cyrus M. Pratt. He died
suddenly and neighbors suspected
that the wife and hired man had pois
oned him. An examination of the
stomach revealed that he died of pois
oning.
It was found that Mrs. Pratt had
purchased strychnine at Tetter and
said that she wanted to kill rats. Mre.
Pratt was formerly a schoolteacher
near Rock Rapids, lowa, and her par
ents still live there.
Persing was engaged to marry a girl
in Fonda, lowa, when he was arrested
several weeks ago. Mrs. Pratt will be
arrested today.
Indians in Nation?,! Convention.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash., Oct. 9.—
The first national convention of repre
sentatives of the various Indian tribes
of the United States convened here
today. All the tribes of Washington,
Idaho, Oregon, Wyoming, Montana
and Utah and many tribes of the mid
dle eastern and southern states are
represented in the convention. Cap
tain Aneas of the Yakima tribe is pre
siding and Lancaster Spencer, of the
same tribe, is acting as secretary. The
object of the convention is to organize
a national association for discussing
questons of vital interest to the In
dians. After the convention the del
egates will be entertained with a big
"potlatch" and other special features.

EXCURSION TO GARDENA
SPECIAL CARRIED 75 WALLA
WALLANSTO NEW IRRIGATED
TRACTS.
Crowd Spent Three Hours Looking
Over Gardena—General Verdict
Was That It Is Good Property
The special excursion train over the
O. R. & N. yesterday carried about
75 Walla Wallans to Gardena, where
prospective investors spent several
hours looking over the irrigated tract
being placed on the market by the
Walla Walla Irrigation company
through White & Buchanan, the real
estate agents.
The train left the O. R. & N. depot
at 9 o'clock and made the run to a
point a mile this side of Touchet
in an even 4"0 minutes. The passen
gers disembarked and walked a mile
to Gardena, passing through the
richest part of the Gardena tracts.
About two hours were spent inspect
ing the canals and nature of the soil
and the general opinion was that the
Gardena tracts offer excellent oppor
tunities for the investor or small
farme?.
The party arrived in Gardena about
noon and had dinner at the new Gar
dena hotel lately erected. At 1 o'clock
the crowd boarded the train and re
turned to Walla Walla, arriving here
about 1:40. The special was gotten up
