Hermlston Farmer Grows Belligerent
Yates Would Prevent Federal
.Employees Digging Ditch '
i, Across Land. "
- Hermlston, Ore., June 1. Armed
with a shotgun and reinforced with a
foreman aicd wlt'a a hawserFred
Yates is holding the fort at his fana
on the outskirts of Hermlston and
defying the forces of the government.
So far the beligerent farmer has held
the government forces at bay but it is
presumed that he will be compelled
by the courts to withdraw from his
warlike attitude and permit the fed
eral employes carrying out their in
tentions which are to open a dith
across the Yates farm.
It seems that the old Maxwell com
pany which disposed of its rights and
holdings to the government when the
reclamation service took charge of
the project, had a ditch across th
particular piece of land and that this
ditch, together with the remainder of
the company's possessions, was turn
ed over to the government. Nothing
was done with it, however, and acting
on the assumption that it had been
abandoned, Yates filed it up, set out
his fruit trees and proceeded to till
his farm, Just as though there were
no ditch. Recently the reclamation
service engineers decided that it was
necessary to open up the ditch and so
notified Yates who Bent back word
that It would not be opened up. This
morning a crew of laborers was sent
out to perform the work whereupon
they were met at the Yates boundary
line by the belligerent owner who is
still in possession, with the ditch un
opened. It Is believed the next move of the
government will be to secure an In
Junction preventing Yates from inter
fering with the work of opening vv
the ditch.

Careful Analysis of Churches through
out the United States. : .,
Washington. June 2. Special Re
ligious census are being completed
at a rapid rate. Among some of the
data complied Is the following:
The cities Bhowing the largest pro
portions of Protestant communicants
are Memphis, 84.4 per cent; Toledo,
70 per, cent; Washington, 66.9 per
cent; Kansas City, Mo., 66.2 per cent;
and Indianapolis, 62.1 per cent.
The cities showing the largest per
centage of Roman Catholic communi
cants are Fall River, 86.5 per cent;
San Francisco, 81.1 per cent; ' New
Orleans, ,79.7 per cent;. .New York,
76.9 per cent; Providence 76.5' per
cent; St. Louis, 69 per cent; Boston,
68.7 per cent; Chicago, 68,2 per cent;
and Philadelphia, 51.8 per cent.
' In the five leading cities the pro
portion of communicants to ' popula
tion was: New York, 41.7 per cent;
Chicago, 40.7; Philadelphia, 38.8; Bos
ton! 62.6; and St. Louis, 46.6 per cent.
It is stated that, in general, cities
which have a relatively large Roman
Catholic population show a higher
percentage of church members than
cities Jn which this body has a com
paratively small representation. In
Fall River .86.5 per cent of the total
number of members reported wer?
Roman Catholics and ithe church
membership represented 67.8 per cent
of the population, while In Memphis,
where 84.4 .per cent of the communi
cants reported belonged to Protes
tant bodies, the church membership
was only 30 per cent 6t;the popula-
Of the Roman Catholic church's
total membership there were 1 3,375,
453 or 27.9 per cent, in first cla3s
cities; 1,351,132 or 113 per cent In
the second; 1,570,944 or 13 per cent
In the third and fourth classed com
bined;, with 5,771,613 on 47.8 per cent
outside the principal cities. ; ;
It is seen, therefore, that the num
ber of members of the Roman Catho
lic church reported in " cities of the
fiFiaf . class . was considerably more
than double the number. reported by
all the Protestant bodies, while out
side of the principal cities the num
ber reported by the Catholics was
only a little over one-third of the
number credited to the Protestants.
It is pointed out In the report that
the strength of. the Protestant, bodies
aa compared with the Roman Catholic
church, is greatly understated,
Only two of the Protestant, bodies
reported a majority of their member
ship In the principal cities; t e., the
Church of Christ, Scientist, 82.6 per
cent," and the Protestant . Episcopal
church, 61.2 per cent; while of the
membership of the Jewish congrega
tions, .88.7 per cent are ?ln the prin
cipal cities, and : of the .Eastern Or
thodox chrirches, 76.7 per cent.
Of the total-number" of commur!
cants or members reported for ttr
principle cities by all denomination'
6,307.529 or 60 'per cent' belonged' t'
the. Roman Catholic church',-' and -,-935.341.
or 37.4. jo Protestant. bodlcr
Corapared with" the report for 18!"
shows that in general there has beer
aa Increase In the proportion of com
municants or members In the princi-1
pal cities as compared with those out
side of these cities. In 1908 the per
centage of the total number of com
municants In these cities for all de
nominations was 31.9 as . compared
with 25.T In 1890. ' .
Of the total number, 10,511478,; of
communicants or members in the
principal cities in 1906, there were
7,343,403 or 69.9 per ' cent reported
by the 38 cities of over 100,000 popu
lation, and, of these, 2,432,630, or 33.1
per cent, belonged to Protestant bod
ies and 4,736,535 or 64.5 per cent to
the Roman Catholic church. The lat
ter denomination had in these cities
about 75.1 per cent of its entire mem
bership Ih cities of over 25,000 In
habitants. r
In thirteen of the cities more, than
one-half of the communicants or
members reported belonged to Prot
estant bodies, while In 23 the majori
ty belonged to the Roman Catholic
church. . V " ' '-' ' "
