M. P. Isenberg, supervisor of the
north half of the Cascade forest reserve,
has been suspended, and his case is
awaiting investigation on charges of
drunkenness preferred against him by
Congressman Williamson and Senator
Fulton, so stated Washington dispatch
es in Saturday's Oregonian. To the
Glacier, Mr. isenberg declares the
charges are made by his political ene
mies. He is willing to stand investiga
tion, but says the whole Oregon delega
tion is, of course, against him. Mr.
Isenberg says his official record will
show the duties of his office to have been
faithfully performed, and that nothing
about his work was ever neglected. The
Glacier is glad to add that Mr.Isenberg's
good work last season speaks for itself.
He conscientiously carried out his in
structions from Washington, and there
never was a summer with such an ab
sence of forest fires. Mr. Isenberg's ad
ministration of the reserve has also been
eminently satisfactory to the cattle and
sheep men. He has received nothing
but compliments from Eastern Oregon
cattle and wool growers for his square
dealings with them, a factor which has
assisted materially in making these peo
ple strong friends of forest reserves.

Norman Williams Held for Murder.
Norman Williams was arrested at Bel-
lingham,Waah., Monday morning, on a
telegraphic request trom Sheriff Sexton
at The Dalles, stating that he was want
ed there on a charge of murdering two
-i ir i W1 t
women at niwu mver iour years ago.
Williams was indicted 90 days since
by the federal grand jury in Multnomah
county for complicity in United States
land frauds, and is now nnder $3,000
bonds. While in Portland a month ago,
pleading to the indictment, his wife
died at Whatcom, of strychnine poison
ing, out wnetner taken with suicidal
intent is not known.
At the time Williams was indicted
by the federal grand jury it was hinted
that he was also wanted on the charge
of murdering Miss AlmaNesbett and her
mother, who occupied adjoining claims
to the one he is accused of defrauding
the government of in the Mount Hood
settlement. Details of Williams' sup
posed crime are that Williams and
Miss Nesbett were friends in Omaha,
Nebraska, . and came West together.
They took np homesteads at Mount
Hood and lived on adjoining . claims
for about a year. Miss Nesbett's mother
then came out from the East. One
ark, Btormy night in March, 1900,
Williams engaged a rig at a Hood River
stable for the purpose of driving Miss
NeBbett and her mother supposedly to
their homesteads about 17 miles from
town. The trio disappeared in the
darkness, and, according to reports, that
was the last ever seen of them.
Long after that letters from friends
and relatives in the East poured into
the Mount Hood post office, and this led
the officers to believe that foul play had
been enacted, as it went to show that
the women never returnd home. Wil-
am8' neighbors had such strong suspi
cions of him that he was forced to leave
the country. The people of that neigh
borhood have anything but compli
mentary remarks for Williams.
According to a report in the Oreeo-
ian, very damaging evidence has been
secured against Williams. A searching
investigation was made of the premises,
resulting in the discovery that the
ground under an old chicken house had
been broken. Digging, the searchers
found the well-defined walls of a grave
two feet wide by six feet lone, the around
giving evidence of having been disturbed
ithin a tew months. At the depth of
seven feet several gunny sacks were
discovered clotted and stiff with blood,
and two large bunches of human hair,
also blood-stained, one bunch gray and
the other black, answering the descrip
tion of the missing women's hair. A
broken dish with hair clincine to the
edges was also in the grave. Nothing
lurtner was found.
With these evidences of the crime he
feared, Mr. Nesbett returned to Hood
River and swore out the complaint be
fore District Attorney Menifee. It is
nts theory that Williams, becoming
alarmed about the suspicions ex
pressed concerning the Nesbetts' where
abouts, and fearing that his premises
might be searched, moved the bodies
ithin a year to another hiding place.

He considered time one of the prime
factors of the situation, and moved that

rred Bailey wanted to know if he did
not sign the 30 contract, whether, with
the water running by his farm as it had
for the past five years, the company had
the right to refuse to sell him water if
he should tender the customary pay
ment of $5 an inch. Mr. Wagnon gave
as his opinion the perpetual water-right
customers would have to be served first,
and if there was any left, the eompany
might let Mr. bailey have water if it
wanted to. The Question was propound
ed to Attorney Jayne, who, believing
the laborer worthy of his hire, passed
it up for the time being.
the subject of prior rights brought to
Mr. Benson's mind the agreement the
Valley Improvement Co. made with
number of the farmers when it took
control of laterals, built by the farmers
to get water from the Hood River Water
Supply Co., and arranged to furnish
water through said laterals at $5 an
inch thereafter. It was seen that this
is another question for the courts.
Several other questions were discussed
and finally Mr. Wagnon was asked what
his company considered the ditch worth.
He replied that before Mr. Chambers
and himself came up the last time they
didn't consider it so very valuable, but
since looking over the situation he
would say the ditch, as it stands today,
is worth $75,000. A Glacier reporter
wanted to know then why the company
couldn't put up its own money
for needed repairs and improvements,in
Btead of demanding that the farmers
foot the bill. He was 'politely told that

The committee went into executive
session, and before adjournment, Mr.
Jayne was retained as attorney to look
up points of law on securing a receiver
for the ditch company ; have the flume
repaired to furnish water this summer,
and in the meantime let the farmers
arrange to build a ditch of their own,
or invite outside capital to do it for them.
Farmers Inspect the Ditch.
The following party' went over the
course of the main ditch of the Valley
Improvement Co., Sunday: John
Moore, Roy (Smith, Andrew Sonnick
son, Nets Nelson, Milton Pealer, F". W.
Angus, Mr. Hoekins, C. E. Markham,
Charles Reed and Fred Bailey. At the
Glacier's request, Mr. Bailey prepared
the following report ot a careful inspec
tion made by himself and Charles Reed:
At the head of the irrigating channel
we found three log jams the first,
consisting of 25 logs ut the mouth of
the channel; the second, 30 logs direct
ly in the channel; the third, 10 logs
near where Hume begins. These logs
range from 16 to 32 feet In length, and
from 1 to 2 feet In diameter.
Repair work necessary from bead of
flume to 8. W. Arnold's place may be
segregated as follows:
1. From head-gate to bridge, i.aoo
feet of new flume must be built,
2. Bridge proper, 110-foot truss and
70 foot approaches, must be entirely re

out. At 3 p. in. Sunday, February 7,
1904, dirt was already sliding under 105
feet of flume. Repairs must Include
new legs and cross ties.
9. Where flume is torn out, 221 feet
of slashing has been done and ground

Death of Florence Cox.
Miss Florence Cox, daughter of S. H.
Cox, died at her father's residence, Fri
day, F'ebruary 5, 1904, after three weeks'
Buffering from typhoid fever. F'uneral
services were conducted Saturday after
noon at the M. li. church by Rev W. C.
Evans. The classmates of Miss Cox,
the pupils of Miss Schungcl's room, at
tended the funeral in a body. Fluch pu
pils presented a beautiful floral offering.
The young women of Hood River also
sent wreaths and profusions of flowers.
Burial was at Idlewilde cemetery.
Florence Edith Cox was born in Hood
River valley September 10, 1889. Her
mother died in 1899. She leaves four
Bisters, a brother and father to mourn
her departure. She was a bright young
girl, and at rational periods during bur
suffering, she assured those around her
she was prepared for the future. Friends
and neighbors of the family were kind
and thoughtful in their assistance and
the bereaved family is truly grateful for
all kindness shown.
W. R. C. Social.
The dinner given by the W. R C. at
Carmichael hall, last Saturday, was well
attended, and all hands were bountifully
supplied with eatables. The hall was
decorated with flags and Oregon grape.
In the evening there was a splendid pro
gramme consisting of songs, recitations
and tableaux. A little girl who was
present said to her grandmother:" Why,
grandma, every piece gets better.doesn't
it?" And this fully expresses all that
could be said, for all did their best and
the W. R. C. considered it a success. A
large audience was present, and after
the programme most of the young folks
stayed, and spent the remainder of the
evening playing games. . The only
fault to be found was the small price
the women charged for admission and
their delicious refreshments. This is
the first entertainment ever given on
the hill, but will not be the last, as
all expressed themselves as having en
joyed such a pleasant evening.
Pleasant Gathering at Catner Home.
