premier, who carried this district by
a small vote, ln a public statement
today, said that the- friendly relations
between the United States and Canada
are unimpaired. He said Canada by

George Lindgren last night tender
ed his. resignation as deputy sheriff to
Frank P. Childers and today Is out of
office. His successor has not b;en an
nounced at this tims. .
The hasty withdrawal from the corps
of deputies needed to handle the vol
ume of work in the sheriffs office by
Mr. Lindgren came as a surprise to his
many friends In this city. He was ap
pointed to the office at the time Mr.
Childers was elected to his first term
and has served continuously since
that time, devoting his entire time to
office work aside from the tax collect
ing department. Service of legal pa
pers and transaction of clerical busi
ness In. connection with all matters
pertaining to the sh'-riff came within
1118 tlUUBB. VV line- iltt H iS,
mines ln the Cornucopia country, he
is at present without a position and
has not had time to look about for a
permanent position. . .
; Removal Is Admitted
Thr retiring deputy today admitted i
that he had been removed In a round
about way, presumably to make room
for a more faored deputy. Mr. Lind
gren said today that he was not asked
to resign by Sheriff Childers but emis
saries for the sheriff had approached
him with messages from tb sheriff to
hand ln his resignation. This was
done Immediately.
Successor Yet to Be 'nW. v
Though the sheriff himself has not
made any ' announcement, people in
touch with affairs , look to Deputy
Huffman at Union as the man who
will -be called ln from Union to take
the office duties. However, this Is
only a street rumor and may not bs
substantiated . by . ultimate' develop
ments.. " . '
During his four years as deputy
Mr. Lindgren officiated as turnkey and
came to be an adept in the handling
of prisoners In the county Jail who
were almost continually under his di
rect supervision. Then, too, Mr. Lind
gren made warm friends In La Grande
and all will regret It If he Is to leave
the city permanently. It is probable
he will remain ln the city for a time
at least. -. ; , ' ....
Heavy Damage Done to Engine 300
When Empties meet In Tnrds. f
Two big engines came together in
the local yards this morning with 1
damaging result to Engine 360, a good
deal of torn up track and several hours 1
blockade on the main line which was'
felt by the passangr trains, all mark
ing the effects of the broadside colli
sion. i
Engine 253 with Engineer Pete Bel
ver at the throttle was pulling down
to take the turn, table tracks after
having been -unhooked from No. 10,
the fast mall. This was shortly after
5:30 this morning. , At the same time
Engine 360, Fred Jasperson engineer,
was approaching from the tast end
of the yards to take a round house ap- j
proach. ,
The freight engine had left the main
line with- the front wheels when the I
fast mall engine struck her broadside
from the left, smashing the piston rod
and frame, and throwing the .big mon
ster off the track and burying her nose
in the ground. The damage to No.
360 was quite extensive, though Mr.
Bclver's engine escaped with little
damage except to her s nose. The
wrecking crane wag called out and by
9 o clock had the mall train engine
out of the way but found difficulty ln
clearing the track of the other engine.
A special crew of men laid a new sid
ing allowing the main line passenger
trains, after some delay this morning,
to pass the wreck.
An Investigation to fix the blame, If
any existed, will likely be held soon.
From a cursory Investigation It ap
pears that the fireman on 360 was of
the Impression that Mr. Belver's en
gine was standing still and notified
Engineer Jasperson that there was
time enough to make the siding before
the fast mall engine started. Both
engineers, were on the right band side
where It would be difficult to gee. Con-
t'seqaently there wasn't time enough to
get ln the clear in that the eastbound
engine wag moving slowly, rather than
standing still as the fireman believed.
