'rBummerdale, N. Y., Jan. 16. After
standing off Sheriff Anderson and 20
armed deputies since Wednesday, Ed
ward Bcardslcy agreed here today to
surrondor on his own terms.
Beardsley, a farmer, was a poor man
with a wife and nine children to sup
port. Poor Master' John G. Putnam of
Chautauqua county heard that the lit
tie ones were suffering for.food, and
called at Beardaloy's home to take
ithem to the poor farm.
Beardsley shot him.
Then he shut himself up in his house
with his family and vowed he would
lull anyone who tried to capture him
or to take his children from him. The
sheriff did not dare order the house
rushed for fear the woman and little
oues would be killed in the fight.
Suffering Mores Him.
It was the children's sufforing from
Lunger which finally forced Beardsley
to offer terms. Shouting from a win
dow to the sheriff, he arranged a con
ference. The sheriff approached the front
dour. The deputies were required to
jjrotip themselves at one Bide with their
lisn.ls in tlio air. There Mrs. Beards

The corporation department this
morning declined to admit the Sunset
Oil & Oas Company, an Arizona cor
poration, to do business in the state,
and returned a check for $95.75 offered
in payment, together with a statement
that the department would refuse to
admit the company until ' further in
formation was submitted.
In a statement today, the commis
sioner says that the Sunset Oil com
pany was1 organized in Oregon March
5, 1910, with an authorized capital
stock of $500,000 and a large part of
the stock had been sold to Oregon peo
ple. The officers are: W. M. Cherring
ton, president, Thomas B. Kay, vice
president; E. C. Armstrong, secretary;
its attorney is -Senator John A Carson,
and among its directors are D. B.
Cartwright and H. G. Meyer, all of
Salem. Its property is all in Oregon
and all of its operations must, of
necessity, be in this state.
Reviews History.
Commissioner Watson then goes on
to review the history of the company
and asserts, among other things, that
it is delinquent in tie annual fee for
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1914,
that there is nothing filed in the office
to show that if has transferred its
holding to the Arizona corporation and
that thore has been nothing filed to
show that the stockholders authorized
such proceeding."
Further it is asserted that complaints
have been filed with the department
in regard to the company's method of
transacting business and so it is the
policy of Watson to proceed cautiously.

"An Unmitigated
Liar" Says West
Governor Comes Back at Attorney
General in Strong Language for
Statement Regarding Lieu Lands
Governor West this morning, in un
diplomatic language, thus jumps onto
Attorney-General Crawford:
"In an interview given out at Eu
gent, Attorney-General Crawford had
the following to say a to my criticism
of the lieu land plank in his platform:
" 'The statement in my announce
ment that seems to be questioned re
lated to the following transactions:
" 'Two or three years ago the State
Land Commissioner used up about 50,
000 seres of what is called indemnity
school land base, being lands to which
the state was entitled, and for which it
might sol oct government lands in lieu
of the lands lost to the state or recon-
veyed to the United States. The land
commissioner selected in lieu of this
base lands in the vicinity of Albert and
Summer Lakes, in Lake county.
" ' Lands so selected were alkali
lands, worthless for any purpose what
ever, but were to be used, if at all, by
parties who were to endeavor to reduce
the sodas and salts and other mineral
values of the lakes.'
"It making this statement the attor
ney-goneral has proved himself to be an
unmitigated, if not a malicious, liar, for
he was in possession of all the facts
long before making any statement in
reference thereto, as will be shown by
a copy of a lottor sont him by the clerk
of the state land board under the date
of October 24, 1913.
"The letter 1 as follows:

If the ftrict letter of the law passed
by the last legislature authorizing tho
county courts of the state to Issue and

purpose of building good roods and
maintaining permanent highways is
to bo adherred to, thero i a doubt ex

whether or not the Marion county'court
pan legally call and hold a special elec
tion for tho purpose of voting on the
S."iO,0"0 bond Issue, now being con
sidered, until after the next gcnoral
election has been hold.
In support of this belief, section 7,
of chapter 103, of the 1913 session
laws, is referred to. The section reads
n follow:
"The county court shall have printed
to use at suc h special election lineup'

would be reuired by the election laws

Old Officers Out.
In the event a special good ronds
election Is culled iu this county, it per
haps cannot bo held for the reason the
judges and clerks serving at the lust
geneml election, went out of office on
the first of January ami, according to
the section just quoted, it is necessary
that they serve as such Judges ami
elec tions at a special election held for
goods mads purposes.
Although a new set of judges and
clerks hBvo been appointed Slid are
now subject to call nt future elections
lliii year, the section specifically says
thnt the Judge and clerks serving at
the next preceding election must act
at spncinl bond elections. Thus it can
be readily realized that Inasmuch as
the old officers of election have
resigned, and Hie last general election
was .held In 1912, there would be no
legally appointed judges and clerks to
conduct S special election for the pur-
DlHtrlcts Changed.
Another feat urn which would make
it almost impossible to use old clerks
and judges of election is that tho pre
iucts were changed the first of the
year. .More Jmlges aim cierm woun
