ofnclally that actual overtures hove now been made by the Great Northern for a magnificent terminal site on the water front made possible by the destruction by fire of the Hastings lumber mills CRlSIIKD BY A ROLLING LOG A Yonnar Man Carried Dwa an Embankment in Oregon GRANTS PASS Or November 23 - A man about S years of age was this morning crushed to death near Wolf creek by a log rolling over him There was no one near when the accident occurred but the Indications are that he loosened the log to let It down a steep embankment and In so doing slipped A small limb catching In his clothing carried him over and over several times as If rolled down He claimed to hall from Mexico but did not give his name No papers of identification were found on him TERRIFIC WINDS SWEEP SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SnsiTX November 25 A novel case Involving fine legal points and the first of its kind ever tried In California has been decided by Judge Buckles of Solano county The question Involved was whether a man could scqulre property by his own crime The nature of the case la best told by the decision which In part Is as follows Louie Prank Arthur Thomas and Sule Belew were brothers and sisters Louie and Susie were unmarried and each possessed estates In their own right The father and mother were both dead Frank was without means and possessed a family with whom at the time he was not living He murdered Louie and Susie with no apparent motive other than to succeed to a portion of their respective estates He pleaded guilty was sentenced to be hanged and his execution took place in the State Prison at Folsom on June 16 IMS The petition for the distribution of the estate of Susie and Louie Belew asks that the said estate be distributed in t - oua I shares to the surviving brother and to the estate of Frank Belew One of the brothers filed an objection to any distribution being made to the estate of Frank Belew on the ground that he having murdered his brother and sister could not succeed to any of the estate left by them To this objection a general demurrer Is Interposed The objection is basei upon a case determined in October 1SS9 decided by the Court of Appeals of New York and reported in 2 N T R page 188 Rlggs vs Palmer That was a case where the grandfather made his will bequeathing to his grandson Elmer the residue of the estate Elmer was 16 years of age and knew - of the bequest mads to him For some reason the grandfather had manifested an intent to revoke this part of hia will Of thin the boy had knowledge and to prevent It being done and to secure the residue of the estate according to the bequest he murdered his grandfather The Court held that the act of murder served to revoke that part of the will and that Elmer could take nothing The statutes of succession or of descent contained no express provision by which one who murders his ancestor or one from whom he Is otherwise entitled to Inherit Is precluded from inheriting or of succeeding to his victims estate nor does the statute which provides for the revocation of wills make the murder of the testator a revocation of the will But the Court said In substance The laws of New York relating to the probate of wills and the distribution of estates will not be construed so as to secure the benefit of a will to a legatee who has killed the testator in order to prevent the revocation of a will This ruling has been criticised by Other courts of other Jurisdictions on the ground that the New York Court con strued something into the statutes which plainly the Legislature did not Intend to and had not put there In this State the Code has provided as follows Civil Code section ISM When any person having title to any estate not otherwise limited by marriage contract dies without disposing of the estate by will it Is succeeded to and must be dis tributed unless otherwise expressly provided in this Code and the Code of Qlvtl Procedure subject to the pay ment or his debts In the following manner Then follows the order In which the estate is succeeded to and there is not here nor In this Code or the Code of Civil Procedure anywhere any provision that In any manner forbids the mur - Gerer from taking an estate that would otherwise descend to him In this case I am ra effect asked to so reform section IMS by adding a proviso thereto in about this language - Provided that if the heir murdered the deceased be shall not succeed to any of bis estate Of that I must say mat tne legislature intended to Include such a proviso Unless this Court can do this the estates of Louie and Susie Delew must be distributed in equal parts to the estate or the murderer Frank Belew and the two surviving brothers In order to give the law such a meaning aa Is here suggested I mutt first find that section ltti is not clear In its terms is uncertain in Its directions Is ambiguous and does not express fully the legislative Intent But a simple reading of the section at once brushed away all thought - of am - blruouxneas and shows the certainty of every word ana sentence ana at once Impresses the reader with the certainty that the foil Intent of the Legislature as to the succession or property is ex creased therein 1 Therefore having no legislative newer whatever and not being con ceraed as to the policy of the law this Court Is unable to speculate aa to inm real or fancied legislative In tent which has been floaUnc about for all these rears since tne aaoption or tne Code The meaning now is clear and Veil defined This U not a parallel n -
