that the act violates several sections
of tho constitution of tho state. Ho
says the appropriation is invalid, as
it violates section 7 of artlclo 9 of
the state constitution, which says
that "laws making appropriations for
salaries shall contain no provisions
as to other subjects," and also that It
violates section 20 of article 4 of tho
state constitution, which, provides
that "every act passed by the legisla
ture shall embrace but one subject.
Ho further contends that there is
no statuto or state law which provides
for the office of assistant attorney
general and, therefore, in contempla
tion of law, thero is no such office.
Ho says that, unless an injunction
is issued restraining the secretary of
state and state treasurer from tho
payment of the salary that they will
pay over the sum of $460 for the
quarter ending August 31 of this
year, and he desires them enjoined
from this, and that a perpe.tual in

Cazadero, Calif., Aug. 4." Tho
disappearance of T. A. Kendall and
his mother and father from their
ranch near here, followed by the
finding of . the charred portions of
human bones, 'resulted today, in. or
ders for a general round up of Jap
anese in Sonoma county, Suspicion
was directed toward the Japanese
last night when It became known
that Henry Yamagatl, a ranch hand,
bad been seen at the Kendall home
following tho disappearance of the
Kendalls and that later he had van
While Assistant District Attorney
G. W. Hoyle and Sheriff John Smith
believe that a triple murder has
been committed, they are bonding
their efforts today In attempting to
find Kendall and his parents, Enocn
and Ura. In addition to portions of
charred bone, which Dr. J. W. Jess9
declares once, belonged to a human
body, the Sonoma officials found
burned and fragmentary pieces of
clothing, bits .of jewelry and human
teeth In a mound of ashes near tho
Kendall home. A woman's specta
cles and hair comb were found in
the grate of the kitchen stove.
..-The Kendalls were last, seen alive
July 23 by neigh bore, Since then
none but tho Japanese was scon near
the place until Tuesday last, when
a second Japaneso was found by Mr.
and Mrs. Johnson and a boy who
are summering at Cazadero. Tho
Johnsons had visited the Kendall
farm house out of Idle curiosity.
Thoy found the placo deserted but
hiding under a cot was a Japanese,
who skulked away after telling: them
that he was Joking, pn leaving, the
Japanese picked up a, hunting knife
from a table. Tho officers bolleys
that tho murders, If compjltted, were
lone with that weappn.
Attention of tfie authorities was
directed to tho unusual conditions rt
tho Kendall farm house by nojgh
bora who found the horses and oth
er livestock In the barn and pens
starving. The sheriffs and his depu
ties searched the placo thoroughly
but not until they came upon, the
pile of ashes and4SebrIs in the yard
and discovered tha hones and relics
did they get tho first intimation that
murder had been done.
The heap of ashes disclosed cloth
ing, portions of human ribs, skulls
and smaller bones. A wedding rlnij
with "T. A. K." engraved on It wasi
found in the heap. The bonoe wore
gathered up In a paper and taken to
Santa Rosa for further examination.
Sheriff Smith jtnd hU deputies re
mained at tha ranch house last
night. They exprejMftl tha convic
tion that the Japanese knew a greo:
deal about Uis deaths of the Ken
dall and that rvange wae the mo
tive for the, crime.
HciiIoiih Crlino Committed.
Santa, Roea, Calif., Aug. 4. As
sistant District Attorney G. W
Hoylo said today:
"Wo bellevo that ono of tho most
dastardly murders in tho history of
Sonoma county has been committed
on the Starbuck ranch. T. A. Ken
dall,-his father, Enoch, and his mo
ther, Ura, probably wero stabbed to
death, their flesh fed to hogs on the
ranch and their bones burned In the
kitchen stove. Every attempt was
made by tho murderer or murdoror3
to conceal tho crime, and every ef
fort will bo mndo by tho authorities
to uncover it."
"I cannot discuss the1 leads wo
havo that probably will result In tho
capture of the perpetrators of this
terrible crime," continued Hoylo,
"but I will say that we havo good
clues, and whllo ono is strongest, wo
aro not overlooking others nnd tak
ing every precaution to run down all
"Unquestionably tho three Ken
dalls wore murdered. Nothing
shows that anyone was responsible
for tho deaths of tho others and
then fled. Tho bones, according to
surgeons, are those of at least thrso
persons. Thero was no motlvo,
olther of money, revenge, or evew
insanity, to account for a crime on
tho part of any member of the Ken
dall family. On the contrary, thero
Is plenty of motlvo b yothors for the
death of the Kendalls, but, of
course, 1 cannot reveal at presont
the Identity of persons who would
have sought tho death of the Kendalls.
"The bones of threo persons very
easily could havo been Incinerated
in the "stove. The flesh could ha)
been fed to tho hogs on the ranch.
I am not saying that this actually
was done, but tho murderer coull
not havo, burnqd both flesh and
bones In the stove.
"The attempt to destroy tho bones
shows that the murderer subjected
them to the fiercest boat. The frag
ments are very small and calcined
by the hot llro.
"The murders wero dono outside
the house. We have reason to be
lieve that one of the Kendalls was
struck with a heavy stono and that
two and possibly all three wore
stabbed. Tho theory is that tho
younger Kendall was struck down
from behind, while his feeble father
and mother wero butchered after
ward." Tho all-night vigil of Sheriff
Smith and a deputy at tho ranch
houso was not rewarded. Tho clew
that the murder was committed by
a Japanese resulted today In a gen
eral alarm to tho officials .of the bay
counties to seek put a certain Jap
anese answering descriptions given
by neighbors of tho Kendalls. Last
night additional bones were found
and these will be brought to Santa
Upsa .this afternoon to join tho grew
sorne relics at (he coroner's ofllco.

" Below Is given a- complete
niary of tho stops taken by the Salem
authorities in tho mattor of municipal
ownership of a first-class water sys
tem for tho city of Salem. . Tho corn
eal ttep and the acting, mayor have
worked diligently to bring this1 matter
before the people, and now submit
what has "been dono for tho informa
tion of all voters, j
Tho prlco agreed upon Is not a'
haphazard conclusion, but has been
arrived at by close application on.tho
part of tho city council committees.
In tho first placo It was decided as
hotter to arrlvo at a prlco by ap
pralsomost than by an arbitrary price
from tho water company. For this
reason threo competent engineers
wero appointed to nrrlvo at tho ex
act value of tho existing plant. The
city named J. H. Cunningham, tho
wator company named R. O. Donald,
and Instead of those two selecting a
third man tho governor named State
Engincor J. H. Lowls. Theso gcntlo
men nro all known to bo competent,
and their modo of proceduro was suc''i
as is adopted by tho engineering au
thorities of tho country.
First thoy made a complcto Inven
tory of tho wator company's property,
nnd Its valuo was arrived at by tak
ing tho cost of each Item and deduct
ing therefrom tho oxact porcontago
of dotorioration ns shown by its
actual' condition and by tho time it
had boon In service. This mado not
a lump sum, but an oxact valuation
of every portion of tho plant, based
upon Its presont physical condition.
In order to dotormlno tho condition
of tho plpos, for instanco, examina
tions wero mado by thoso engineors
at 30 different points In tho city. By
this process the exact status of tho
property was arrived at.
Noxf , on certain dates, tho pressure
wns gauged at 10 dlfforont places,
which gave exact Information as r.o
tho capacity of tho pipes and their
service. From thoso tests the en
gineers made their final deductions.
Tho iiejirocljitlqn totals compiled
tho engineers In nearly every lnstanoer
showed a very f material roductlpat
from tho original cost. ' ,
Next a comploto showing wak njajfr
of what It would cost to dupllcao
tho physical plant, and It was found
that this' wonld take $378,G28 To
this was added several Items such &s
a corporation should bo entitled to as
a growing concern. This brought thg
total sum arrived at by the arbitrat
ing engineors to $422,585. This,
award was submitted to . the- council
and tho wholo matter 'was finally ro
forred to special committees. These
committees labored long and Indus
triously to get tt better proposition.
They finally succeeding in ollralnatlngr
a lump sum of approximately
$48,000, still retaining all tho prop
erties oxcopt the water righton the
island, and that thoy secure for tho
nominal figure of fl per year. Tn
addition to this item the company
agrees to eliminate a further sum of
$44,000 on account of tho water
power, fo'ir the city roserves an. option
to lake ever this wator power at any
tlmo within a period of three years
at the or'plnal price agreed upon. In
tho meantime they pay an annual
rental of $3000 for the use of said
power. Tho engineers estimate that
a llko power produced by coal would
cost tho city $11,000 por year. Thita
it will bo seen that the special water
committees of tho council havo not
only hammered tho prlco down $48.
000 below tho arbitration award, but
have driven a closo bargain in tho
matter of retaining tho wator powor
If needed. Many othor points might
bo taken into consideration which
havo boon gained by tho committees;
for instance the real estato values
woro mado nearly two years ago, and
It Is conceded by tho best judges that
thoy have greatly Increased In that
In order to give a conciso idea of
what tho city will get when this plant
is taken over, the following statement
might bo submlttod:
Amount to bo paid wator company $205,000
Amount to cover maturing G per cent bonds 45,000
Amount to cover, at cost, nil possible, extensions and botter
ments to water plant from date of appraisement to' date" of
transfer ) .... ;.. 30,500
Tho city to assume tho outstanding 5 por cent bonds, which ma
ture in olghteon years
On this basis tho city will flnd itself with tho following annual account:
Present total annual Income of plant $, 55., 000
Intqrcst on,$361,00u at G por cent $ 18,060 '
Operating expenses, nnd depreciation .19,950 , 38,000
Annual profit for city , .j, $ .17,000
Tho charter nmondmont makes provisions for expenditures In addition
to the foregoing as follows: . ,
For purchase of wator power ', .$ 44,000
For futuro extensions v . . j . . 75,000
Total , , t $1,19,000
Should the council deem it to the Interest .of tho city to oxpend
, these sums It would lncroaso tho Interest charge by $119,000
at 5 per cent .' ... ,..,..'.$ 5,950
