Washington, an. 30. The interior de
partment and the department of agri
culture have reported adversely to con
gress on the joint resolution introduced
ly Senator Lewis, of Illinois, proposing
In effect to confirm the title of all per

the Lewis resolution, but Senator Lew
is, in introducing the resolution, marked
H for the junk pile when he indorsed it
as being "introduced by request" a
term used in congress to indicate that
the author of the measure intends that
It shall not receive consideration.
The introduction of the resolution and
the attitude assumed by the depart
ments, however, serve once more to at-,
tract public attention to the activities
of the locators, and it now develops
that it has been the purpose of the in
terior department and the department
of justice for moro than six months
past to procure evidence against the
locators who have been active in plac
ing people 'on or inducing thorn to file
on Oregon & California grant lands,
with a view to prosecuting those of

The records of the government de
partments disclose the fact that be
tween 14,000 and 15,000 claims to
Oregon & California lands would be ap
proved if tho Lewis resolution were
passed by congress, and the only re
quirement would be that the claimant
pay the government $2.50 an acre for
eacli acre filed on.
It moreover appears that profession
al locators who were instrumental in in
ducing the filing of nearly 15,000 claims
"have reaped a fine harvest, their lo
cating fees to date having aggregated
more than $1,000,000 in the Oregon &

electrocuted at the Ohio penitentiary
tonight, without ever having had a
trial by jury. Humphreys is a self
confessed murderer. He pleaded guilty
to the general charge of homicide and
waived his right to a trial, hoping for
clemency from the court. Because of
the nature of his crime, the judge gave
him the limit of the law. Humphreys
gained the confidence of a comrado
and learned where this friend had $400
hidden. He got his victim to get the
money, lured him from West Virginia
to Columbus, took him to a deserted
part of the city, and cut bis throat.
He shot the man afterwards to make
sure of the job. Then Humphreys fled
back to the West Virginia mountains,
abandoning his wife and two babies.
It was through his own little boy that
the crime was finally fastened upon
Humphreys. A few days after the
murder the child found a bloody revol
ver in an old stove in the yard. - The
police were notified and Humphreys
finally captured. Confronted with sev
eral of the murdered man's belongings
found in his possession, Humphreys
broke down and confessed.

Charging that the defendants have
declined to make physical connections
of their lines at Albany, John Wills, W.
L. Chambers and E. A. Chambers, of
that city, have today filed a complaint
with, the state railroad commission
against the Southern Pacific, the Cor
vallis & Eastern and the Oregon Eloc
A law compelling physical connec
tions of railroads within the discretion
of the commission was passed at the last
session of the legislature, and it is .be
lieved that the larger companies have
awaited the filing of complaints with
the commission before filing suit to test
An old state law provided in general
terms for an interchange of traffic by
railroads, but the United States court
held that it applied to interstate as
well as interstate' commerce and was
void. The new law was passed to rem
edy the alleged defect. The large lines
fought the attempt to make the inter
change of businoss compulsory under
the old law, and there is reason to be
lieve as determined a fight will be
made under the new one.
It is alleged in the complaint that
the defendants have not furnished the
proper facilities for the interchange of
traffic at Albany, and, as a result, the
complainants are suffering damage.
The Oregon Electric, it is said, doos
not oppose the physical connections. The
complaint is the first of numerous ones
which the commission may have to con
sider, and if the large railroads are of
the same attitude as they were when
the old law was attacked, a bitter court
fight will result. ' '
The complainants ask that the de
fendants be required to answer the
charges, and that an order be mado re
quiring them to provide the connec
tions. It is charged that their failure
to make physical connections is unrea
sonable and unjust and does not permit
of adequate intrastate commerco bo
