That Thomas Huffman was absolutely unconscious when the will was read to him and when his hand was held that he sign it, that he spoke not at all nor made any motion when asked if he agreed to the terms of the will and that he was dying at the time was. the testimony of Miss Ottillie Lindeman, trained nurse, who was in the room atthe time the will was signed. , The case, which was resumed yester- cay, passed rapidly and yesterday af ternoon the rebuttal testimony by the proponents of the will had virtually ended and the court adjourned with the statement that W. J. Woods and Dr. Standard would be recalled as witness for the proponents today. The testi mony of Miss Lendeman and Miss Pen son, the nurses, was the most striking of anything thus far brought out in the case. Miss Lindeman said ehe first saw the aged Durkeo rancher on September 9, when he came to the hospital in a dying condition. She said he was weak, his hands and feet were cold and he was blue. He said nothing and continually fell asleep, she testified and that night there was a rattling in his throat. He gradually grew weaker, the witness av erred and it was impossible to arouse him. Albert Hindman, the wealthy neighbor who is the beneficiary in the will, came in the morning, she said, and after a consultation with the physician injoctions of strychnine were given. Will Bead to Huffman. When Mr. Woods, the Justice of the Peace, at Huntington, Dr. Standard and Mr. Hindman came in, she declared, they at once prepared the will and she went into the room and heard Mr. Woods read the will to Mr. Huffman and asked him if he agreed to it. He did not answer, she declared, and made no motion, but dropped over to one side. He was then propped up, she Bald, and a pencil was handed to him, which he dropped four times. Then, she tes' tified, Mr. Woods took the pencil in his hand and wrote the name for him holding Mr. Huffman's hand all the time. Throughout, the witness averred, Mr. Huffman uttered not a word and she declared that he was utterly un conscious at the time. Mr. Hindman left, Bhe testified, as soon as the will was signed, witnout saying good bye to Mr. Huffman, and didn't come back until after his death She testified that Dr. 'Standard said that if Mrs. Darby would donate the property to the hospital he would be a good witness for her. f Other Nurse Heard Conversation. Miss Jensen, tho other nurse, who was not in the room at the time, said that from the next room, through a thin partition, she had heard tho will read and did not hear Mr. Huffman iiinke reply. She said that when Miss Lindeman i-nine from the room sho saiil "I think it's a Bhame. They put that poor man in a chair and made him sign a will, Ho didn't know a thing. ,: Mrs. Mary Helen Darby, the contest ant, Mr. Huffman's sistor, testified how she had arrived too late and had taken care of the funeral. In ri-Wittal several witnesses told that Mr. Huffman, several years ago, had told them of his intention to leave all his nronertv to Mr. Hindman on his death. J. E. Cannon said that Mr. Huffman had told him of a quarrel with his sis ter, 15 years ago, and had said that ized by a municipality,' operates as s mortgage on all of the taxable property in that town. It is a blanket mortgage involving every home, and, in the event of default in payment of principal or interest, the property may be sold and the debt discharged out of the pro ceeds. Citizens of Salem, shall we add to our burden of taxation, which is already weighing too heavy npon our people t Or shall we turn a deaf ear to the further fawnings of promoters, and thereby protect our homes in the hope that we may again become free men, instead of continuing bondmen t . Let us stop and take a breath before plunging further into the night of bonded indebtedness. LIBERTY.

Editor of The Capital Journal: Tour reporter, he of the vivid imagination, has annoyed and humiliated me by publishing a garbled and untruthful account of an incident which happened in the justice's court yesterday. I simply objected to an improper question directed to a witness for the sole pur pose of humiliating and annoying him. I was well within my rights and in no way gave offense to the court. I never shook a "trembling" finger at any body, and the only coat I took off was an overcoat, which was removed simply because the room was so warm an over coat could not be worn with comfort. In all fte days of my life, no man ever invited me out of a room to fight, and in this case no person expressed any desire to fight. If I were to write what I think about that article your reporter would probably whip me, and being a man of peace I refrain from publically expressing my feelings. L. H. M'MAHAN WANTS WALKS NOT HIGHWAYS, Editor Capital Journal: Allow me to say in the open forum, that the dents on North Commercial street are not as much concerned in the road bond matter, as we are in a short stretch of sidewalk, or rather the ab seuce of said walk. About two months ago a petition, signed by many resi dents residing on North Commercial street, most of the signers being ladies, praying for a sidewalk of some kind on the west sido of Commercial street from Belmont to the walk leading to the cement arch over North Mill creek. was presented to the council. Said paper was duly read at council meeting, Some member of the council promptly moved that the petition be allowed. Councilman Stolz bobbed up like a jack-in-a-box and moved that it be referred, and it was, and it looks as though it would ocntinue to be. A part of the walk was put in soon after, but the portion around the curvo where th6 old 'car-barn, or caskot fac tory stood, remains a pilo of mud. I do not know who claims this proporty but have boon told that it was owned by one of tho bankers of the city. Tod- estriaus are compelled to take to the middle -o! the streot around this curve, and after night, with automobiles and motorcycles, going at 25 miles an hour, which is a frequent occurrence, mako it dangerous, as well as dirty. Why is this condition not rolievedt Four or five years ago a walk was ordered on both sides of Market stroot. for many blocks and was forced down by tho city, a Btroet with not one-tenth tho traffic Commercial street has. Com mercial, at this point has no walk on either Bide. A few days ago the writer noticed a lady leading a small child wading through tho slime' around this curve. An auto going at a two forty clip came around the bond and com menced to skid and had the lady and child not taken to the pool of water standing next to tho curb they would Mrs. Dnrhv had robbed him in a mining! have been run down. She said nothing, deal at Mineral. OPEN FORUM. CLAIMS IT IS UNWISE TO ISSUE COUNTY ROAD BONDS Editor of the ('Bpitnl Journal: Salem haB paved her streets, and they aro attractive, but they are not paid for. The bonds that secured tho mon ey to build them aro drawing interest, payablo annunlly, Salem built a bridge across tho Wil lametto river which was washed away In the flood of 1890. This bridgo was built with borrowed money, and the principal remains impuid. Salem bonded herself to build the present Iron bridge. Those bonds are still drawing Interest, and the bridge is said to be ready for tho scrap heap. Now, after wo have paved our streets and built two bridges, for which we are still Indebted, we aro invited to join the rural districts in adding another bonded indebtedness of $850,000 to hard surface or pave tho country roads, Fellow townsmen, what do you think of it l Salem's total indebtedness la nearly $1,500,000, all of which is drawing in terest. This Is an everngn of about $100 debts for every man, woman, and child In our city. Salem's debts amount to 10Vj Pr cent of the total assessed value of all her listed property. When can we pay out T The proposed bond isiio would add another two per cent to our present bonded Indebtedness, making a total of 12' rr "'"t ' "ur present valuation for which we would be liable. In other words, bond issue author- that I could hear, but I vonture to say The Journal, to print it, would have to put dashes for what sho thought. The city will havo a dainngo suit to pay one of these fino days that would build a lot of walks.

Of tho saved they Biiid 31 wero pas sengers and 53 members of the crew. The missing include 23 passengers and 24 of the crew, FLIGHT OF BIO BAND OF HAWKS CAUSES SPECULATION While on his way down to the store this morning, U. O. Shipley was aston ished to see a large flock of hawks swiftly winging their way across the city in a southwesterly direction. There woro several hundred of thorn, and they traveled by twos and threes, screaming querulously among themsolves as they passed. It is not unusual for hawks to fly in bodies, and some people that saw them at a distance thought they were crows, but Mr. Shipley insists that they were hawks. There is considerable speculation as to whether tho band wns composed of I. W. W. hawks, or wheth er they had scon tho storm signals dis played on tho north coast and were on thoir way south to escape the cold wave that Is said to bo approaching from British Columbia.
