Delay Injunction Proceedings.
Baker, Dec. 28 No action has been
taken by the Baker Commercial club
in regard to protesting against the lo
cation of the branch asylum at Pen
t leton. Owing to the poor physical
condition of Governor F. W. Benson,
who is now in California for his
health, It is doubtful if he will be
asked to Interfere in the case. Unless
there Is some legal recourse to secure
a square deal It is not likely that any
action will be taken. It was expect
ed that a meeting of the club direc
tors would be held this morning but
owing to the absence of some of the
attorneys In Portland the meeting
was postponed. It is not known how
6oon the attorneys will be home, but
no action will be taken until that

"There are 10 counties that may be
considered tributary to Umatilla,
four to Baker and two to Unlonj and

by iaw to be accepted.
"Pendleton,- too, has competing
railroad service, which Is an advan
tage not held by Baker or Union. In
addition to this, the city is a shorter
distance from Salem than either of
the other two. It should be remember
ed that the law . provides for the
changing back and forth of patients
between the two asylums In the event

"Railroad transportation is an im
portant factor and was given the con
sideration it openly' merits. The cli
mate too, at Pendleton was looked
upon as the most suitable for the
general class of Insane patients. The
winters are short and mild and the
summers are bright and dry. .
"Prices of tracts available for the
site were not a controlling factor. The
330 acres selected at Pendleton will
cost the state $32,200. This is less
than similarly located land of equal
fertility and accessibility could be se
cured at Baker and a little less than
at Union. The site Is right adjoining
town and many persons who will wish
visit friends or relatives In the
asylum will not be compelled to pay
carriage fare after arriving in Pen
"The land in the tract is fertile. Last
season it produced more than six
rloads of apples besides a good crop

a large tract of good bottom land
and one of the oldest water rights on
the Umatilla river.
John D. Cochran was paid ?47 by
a resolution of the board for a week's
work in examining sites and procur
ing options for the state. State Senator-
C. W. Nottingham of Portland
drew $36.75 for his connection with
the locating of the branch asylum.
C. G. McCarthy was paid $279.55 for
services rendered in connection with
the location of the branch asylum and
H. D. Scudder, soil expert of the ag
ricultural college was paid $79.65.
Dr. R. E. Lee Steiner, superintend
ent of the asylum at Salem, was op
posed to the selection of Pendleton
as the site for the branch asylum. It Is
understood he was in favor of Baker
but he made an open protest against
Pendleton, although not coming out

Money In Railroads.

000,000,000 and jprobably worth more.
They collect $7,000,000,000 a day from
the people, wich is $127 a year for .each
family and have earned In the last 10
years '$6,600,000,000. .
