MITOISTS HOLD
FIRST MEETING
COMMITTEES APPOINTED TAKE
CHARGE OF ORGANIZATION
and membership.
Association Has "Good Roads" for Its
Motto—Will Work On Line s of
Similar Organizations.
With but few members present, the
first meeting of the Automobile asso
ciation was held last night in the Com -
mercial club rooms and in addit'ion
to electing temporary officers, vari
ous committees were appointed for
different purposes. Timothy Paul will
fill the choir until a regular election is
held but it was not considered ne-'
ce-snry to elect any more officers.
T.vo committees —one on organiza
tion and one on membership—were ap
pointed by t"he chair and these will
start work at once. Those who will at
tend to the work of organization are:
W. W. Baker, Tim Paul and Robert
Moore while the enrollment of new
members will be made by a commit'
tee consisting of Oscar Drumheller,
Ray Brackett. Arthur Lutz, Dale Pres
ton and Charles Dement*.
The primal object of this association
will be "Good Roads" and with this
aim in view, it is expected that it will
accomplish many things. The rules of
the Portland Auto association will be
closely patterned after and when the
organization is working smoothly, s
membership of from 150 to 200 is ex
pected to be enrolled from this county.
USED TUNG'S PORCH
FOR HIS CUSPIDOR
C. D. Herring ls*Arrested on Complaint
of the Head of the Local Chinese
Colony.
Not wishing to run the chance of
having some one enforce the ordin
ance prohibiting expectorating on the
walks and floors of public places,
not to say private, Charles Tung this
morning lodged complain against C.
D. Herring, charging him with hav
ing expectorated on the porch of
Tung's residence, West Rose street,
and the arrest was made this morning
at 5:20 o'clock by Officer Thomas
Doyle. Herring deposited $10 bonds
for his appearance in court this af
ternoon. and was released.
According to the story told the
police by the complainant. Herring
has for three weeks past, indulged in
the liberty of using Tung's veranda
for a cuspidor, until diplomatic rela
tions became so strained that patience
ceased to be a virtue. The case will
be heard in Justice McKinney's court
tnis afternoon at 4 o'clock.
SCANDAL IS RIPE
(Continued From Page One.)
$25,000 in fees has been misappropri
ated. In the deal are the cases of
several insurance companies which
have gone into bankruptcy, notable
the Walla Walla Fire Insurance com
pany, of Walla Walla, and the Pacific
Livestock Insurance company, of Spo
kane. In addition, there is the case
of a fake life insurance company which
did business in Seattle for a year and
the courts are now trying to settle up
its affairs with old notes, one of which
is for more than $100,000, signed by a
man who is said to be bankrupt. In
stances of different sorts are reiterated
showing discrepancies and inability on
hte part of the management of the in
surance department.
The Charges.
The 'specific charges against J. H.
Schively, insurance commissioner, are:
"That on April 16, 1907, Sam H.
Nichols, and John H. Schively received
from the Walla Walla Firfe Insurance
company $200 for examination, and on
July 29, 1907, they again received $200
from this company, of which no ac
counting was made, to the state, where
as the examination and expense need
not have exceeded $50 each.
"That on July 31, 1907, John H.
Schively, demanded of the Washington
Hardware and Implement Dealers, Mu
tual Fire Insurance association, of Spo
kane, and of the Western Live Stock
association of the same city, $200, and
compromised in $100, whereas the nec
essary expenditures need not have ex
ceeded $60.
"That in 1905, 1906, 1907, John H.
Schively purported to examine the
Guardian Life Insurance company, of
Seattle, charging a fee of $50, whereas
the actual expenses could not have ex
ceeded $15.
"That on December 22, 1906, Schively
examined the Columbia Life and Trust
company, of Portland, Ore., receiving
$160, whereas the necessary expenses
could not have exceeded $50.
'"That since 1905, John H. Schively
has made three examinations of the
Seattle Fire and Marine Insurance com
pany, charging $200 for the first and
$50 for the subsequent examinations,
whereas the necessary expenses in any
case need not have exceeded $15.
"That between July and Octobei/
1906. Sehively, as deputy insurance
commissioner, drew as salary as such
from the state. That on July 10, 1906,
he was elected trustee and president
of the Pacific Live Stock' association,
and from that time until October 3, he
gave practically all his time to that
company, receiving as a salary $2.-
597.35. That during all this time the
company was insolvent, and Sehively
knew it.
"That for four years Sam H. Nichols,
as insurance commissioner, and John H.
Schively, as deputy, collected from a
large number of insurance companies,
at least eight, money to cover exami
nations to be made in the future, which
examinations have never been made.
"That since his election as insur
ance commissioner, John H. Schively
has collected money to cover exami
nations to be made hereafter, such sums
being arbitrary and not for the pur
pose of applying upon any expense in
connection with future examinations,
but purely as an arbitrary sum.
"That there are more than 250 in
surance companies doing business in
the state and that the arbitrary fee has
been charged each of them each year
since entry, that there were entered
during the past two years in addition
to the companies whose certificates of
authority were annually renewed 87
companies, which were charged $200,
and in addition thereto there was en
tered 18 fraternal societies.
"Upon information .and belief, I
charge that the said Sam H. Nichols
and John H. Schivelv have collected
and received during the four years pre
ceding 1 January 13, 1909, in such arbi
trary demands for the alleged purpose
of paying expenses in making examina
tions of insurance companies a sum
exceeding $25,000 in excess of require
ments."
Opposition Strong.
Since the convening of the legisla
ture there has been an uneasy air about
the state offices, and it has been pre
sumed by many that an investigation
would be made before the final adjourn
ment. But the opposition has been
well organized and strong. Acting
Governor Hay has been active in urg
ing a thorough Investigation, and he
has gained the dislike of several influ
ential persons on account of his ac
tivity.
It is currently reported that an inves
tigation will implicate others than
Schively and Nichols, and as a reason
is given the fact of the active opposi
tion of practically all the state officers
to any interference with the insurance
department. Whether the resolution
demanding an investigation can be
passed through both houses is still in
doubt. However, the open charges
made against the insurance department
by Senator Paulhamus, outlined above,
have had the effect of forcing the issue
almost to the breaking point.
Paulhamus, tomorrow will call up
his original investigation resolution.
The governor will likely send a special
message to t"he senate asking it to in
vestigate the insurance commissioner's
office. If the senate refuses it is the
present intention of the governor to
call a special session immediately on
the adjournment of the present one.
It would be the first' legislature to
make an investigation.

RICH STRIKE OF
local corny
Walla Walla Copper Company Finds
Great Vein of Silver and C°pper
Ore at Keller.
J. King, manager of the Walla Wal
la Copper company claims at Keller,
on the south half of the Colville reser
vation, announces a big strike in the
lower workings of the Surprise mine
in this group of claims. The reported
strike was made in the lower tunnel
nt a dep.'h of 100 feet. The tunnel is
now 150 feet in. but the ledge, which
is said to be from 30 to 50 feet wide,
was tapped at the 100-foot mark and
it ,- s stated copper and silver ore was
found which runs from four to five
per cent in copper and $10 a ton in sil
ver. In speaking of the strike Mr.
King says:
"The tunnel which we are putting
into the lower workings is to go in
700 feet, at which point we expect to
find the hanging wall. This str:ke was
made on the footwall. On the upper
workings we made a good strike last
summer from which we took ore run
ning from 10 to 12 per cent copper.
We have not shipped as yet', but have
about 40 tons of ore from the first
strike on the upper workings on the
dump, and this we will ship in the
spring. We are not stopping any as
yet, but are merely developing the
mine."

NORTH COAST j
NOTHING NEW
LOCATING ENGINEER E. S. CLARK
OF THIS CITY IS HERE, BUT
TALKS LITTLE.
Knows Nothing of the Future of the
Mysterious Railroad After it
Hits Walla Walla.
Locating Engineer E. S. Clark, of
t»ie >&>rth Coast railroad, is in the city
on a few days' furlough and reports
excellent progress on this road. Mr.
Clark has been working for the past
few weeks locating a line from Kiona.
which is the headquarters of the road
at present, and also one across the
Columbia river at the Ringold bar.
heading in the direction of Spokane.
Several branches are being located
from Kiona and when the work is
completed the entire country around
there will be tapped by the branch
lines.
Nothing concerning the future of
this road could be learned from Mr.
Clark, but he hinted that it was more
than likely that two separate lines
would be run into this city. One will
come from Wallula and the other,
crossing the fenaka river at Lyon's
Ferry, will enter here from the north.
The bridge across the Snake will be
276 feet in height, thereby eliminat
ing a heavy grade such as is encoun
tered out of Starbuck on the O. R.
& N. railroad. No double-headers
will be necessary and this fact alone
will save the company a large sum of
money each year.
When asked as to the direction of
the road after passing through this
c-ity i Mr. Clark said: "I have sur
veyed a preliminary up Mill creek but
further than that can say nothing.
I am in the dark myself, concerning
the future movements of the road;
and if I did know, I would not be at
liberty to divulge any secrets."
It is rumored that a tunnel throe
miles in length is to be built through
the summit of the Blue mountains,
but no verification of this fact can
be obtained.
Two crews are at work now near
Kiona doing grading and construct
ing and in all a force of about 300
men are employed.
Remodeling Bui'ding.
Carpenters are this week engaged in
making repairs and alterations on the
building owned by Water Superin

During their stay in Germany, Mr.
