Johnstone, of Chicago, both young
men, lost their live in the interna

Hoth accident revealed the frailty
of the machine in which the aviators
were gliding about the air with
scarcely a pause.
Badger, a wealthy young man, came
to hi death in a pit in the aviation
field. There had been a flaw in one of
the wing of the propeller of the Bald
win machine he drove.
Centrifugal force broke the propel
ler and unset the delicate equilibrium
of the machine, and Badger dashedJ

not brounht to the aurface until an

PEST WORSE THAN FIRE.
Forett Suffer Million of Dollars by
Intect Onslaught.
Med ford Presenting the fact that
nsecta do more damage in the forest
than do forest fire, B. I. . Shannon,
secretary of the Jackson county fire
patrol association, secured the assist
ance of the Medford Commercial club
n working for the establishment of a
ocal field station here by the bureau
of entomology.
'There i more than four and one-
half billion feet of good commercial
timber tributary to this little valley
tif 30,000 acres, to ay nothing or the
immense acreage of yellow pine on
the east slopes of the Cascade," aid
Mr. Shannon. "Beside that amount
there is nearly 2,000,000,000 feet
readily accessible in West Josephine
county and on the West Siskiyous.
'The damage done by the insects
alone, now, in the National forest is
equal to the loss by forest fire, and in
private holding this is also true,
There are variations of from 400 to
400 feet in elevation in this district
and there is the wet, warm climate of
the west slope contrasting with the
cold, arid condition of the east slope,
making the investigation cover a
lartre field. An entomological station
here would mean a saving of thousands
and perhaps millions of dollars in tim
ber destroyed in the Crater National
forest and private holdings.
NATION TESTING APPLES.
Keeping
Soldier and Mobs Hava Pitched
Battles in Streets.
Liverpool A reign of terror exists
ere and trooos are pouring into tne
it v to out down disorder. A specia:
guard has been detailed to protect the
anding stage of the trans-Aiiantic
steamers which, it is asserted, the
rioters have planned to destroy by
re.
Five nrison vans escorted by 50
soldiers who were carrying not pris
oners from the police court to Walth
m iail were attacked by 3,000 mem
her of the rouirheat class in Vauxhall
street. The mob threw missile oi
every description and in defending
themselves the hussars fired.
At first blank were used by the
soldiers, and then ball cartridges
One man was killed and many persons
were severely wounded. The troops
then charged with drawn sabers and
cleared the street. So daring were
the rioters that one of them tried to
unhorse an officer, who was obliged to
use his revolver, wounding the man
severely.
Another less serious affray in wnicn
the troops were again compelled to
fire took place in Bond street. Only
a few persons were injured.
Government Experts Try
Qualities of Fruit.
Hood River After having spent
Thursday afternoon and Friday morn-
ing obtaining data on local storage
conditions, B. B. Ramsey and H. J.
Pratt, experts from the pomological
offices of the United States depart
ment of agriculture, left for White
Salmon, where they will conduct the
same work.
The experts, who have been in Cali
forna for the last few years working
on system of refrigeration for citrus
fruits, say that the government is
planning to make extensive experi
ments in fruit storage and transporta
tion in the jNortnwest. xney win
visit all of the principal apple sec
tion of the Northwest between now
and picking time and make a study of
the different soil conditions of every
locality.
ADDles will be obtained from every
district by the experts and will be
subjected to tegta to ascertain tneir
Qualities. This season's
work, it is said, will merely De pre
liminary. The experiments next year
will be on a lartrer scale.
The government experts inspected
the Union warehouses and were pre
sented with Yellow Newtowns grown
last year. The fruit was in perfect
state of preservation and of excellent
flavor.
NEW RAIL LINK SEEN.
Articles Are Filed for Lin Prom
Dallas to Toledo.
Salem Articles of incorporation
filed with the office of the secretary of
state indicate that there is move on
foot to construct a railroad line from
Toledo, in Lincoln county, to Dallas,
in Polk county. In event this railroad
should be constructed it would give
new railroad line from Portland to
Newport by making connections. This
would be so at least when the balem,
Falls City & Western, which operates
from Blackrock to Salem, through
Dallas, completes its bridge across
the Willamette river at Salem.
The new company is capitalized at
$1,000,000. The incorporators are C.
R. Vrosno, Ed J. Avery and John
Kenta. The road is to be called the
Toledo & Siletz Railroad & Naviga
tion company, and its principal place
of business will be at Toledo. The
company also desires to operate a sys
tem of boat lines on the Yaquina
river, according to the articles.
Should the new line become a real
ity, tourists from Portland could come .
to Salem either on the Oregon Electric
or Southern Pacific, transfer to the
Salem, Falls City & Western to Dal
las, transfer to the new road at Toledo
and from there take the Corvallis &
Eastern to Yaquina.
PHONE WAR END IS LIKELY.
Subscribers' Committee to Examine
Company's Books.
Enterprise The committee having
charge of the fight against the recent
advance in rates by the Home Tele
phone company has secured permission
from the directors or the rlome com
pany to have a committee appointed by
the subscribers examine the books of
the company and from their finding re
commend a reasonable and just rate
to be charged for the use of the phone
lines.
Committees from Wallowa county
and Union county met at Wallowa and
agreed to co-operate in the examina
tion of the books, and to work to
gether afterward. The committee
was authorized to obtain estimates on
the cost of construction of a new line
under the co-operative system, which
information will be used both as a
basis in arriving at a settlement with
the Home company and for the con
struction of a new line if nnaily de
cided on.
CUT COST OF LIVING.
mmense Fruit Crop Will Bring Prices
Way Down.
Chicago Stop eating meats and
vegetables and live on fruit. This is
one wav to decrease the cost of living.

prospect for bumper crops in all var
ieties of fruit, say commission mer

prices: Concord grapes, 16 to 18
cenU a basket: peaches, za cents a
one-fifth bushel basket; apples, $1.76
to $3 a barrel (all varieties); pears,
$1.50 a bushel; plums, $1.50 a bushel.
s.ith Water street merchants esti
mate th.t fully 10.000 carloads of
fruit will be shipped from the Michi
ean fruit belt this fall. Not only
from Michigan but from eastern vine
yards and orchards, come the same re
ports of bumper crops.
The first of the Michigan peaches,
the early Alexanders, were shipped
from Ludington August 4. fully two
weeks earlier than in the previous
years. This is not the best variety,

Engineers to Lay Permanent Line for
"Shoestring" at Ontario.
Ontario Active work has begun on
the permanent survey of the Ontario
Nyssa irrigation project, sometimes
called "the Shoestring" ditch. A
corps of engineers left here with camp
supplies and will run the permanent
lines of the canal, which will irrigate
10,000 acres of fine orchard land.
The preliminary lines were run last
winter, and the permanent survey will
cover more land than at first intended.
The officers of the company, headed by
Mayor Trow, have already received
bids on the pumps and electric motors
and will award a contract for the ma
chinery late this fall. No one thing
