are in the hospital wounded as a re
sult of a battalion of the King's Own Borderers' firing into a mob.
The affray came aa a consequence
Of a gun running exploit of the Na

aided by a mob composed largely ot
women and youths. A consignment
of rifles, said to number 10,u00, was
landed at night at liowth, nine mllei
from Dublin, from a private yacht.
When the Dublin authorities learn
ed ot the landing they sent police to
seize the arms. The police were drawn
on both sides of the road along which
the volunteers were returning, with
soldiers In the center of the road.
When the volunteera saw the raobil
ixuiion, most of them got away with
their arms, scattering through the
fields. The police and soldiers tried
to disarm the remainder.
In the resulting affray several re
volver shots were fired by volunteers
and a corporal and a private were
wounded. The volunteers also uaed
their rifles as clubs
The soldiers fired and used their
bayonets freely, inflicting many cuts

A report from the County School
Superintendent ahowa that nineteen
out of a large number of applicants
for tescher.s certificates were success
ful. On sn average the examination was
about as easy as those of former years,
with the exception of geography, which
was baaed principally upon Oregon.
For one who is thoroughly acquainted
with all the phases of Oregon life the
questions would not have been hard
The tendency of the Oregon schools
is to braneb out from Oregon to the
rest of the world and it is very neces
sary for a teacher to be thoroughly
acquainted with Oregon.

"I have been up to my ranches get

ing attention to other personal busi
neas," said Mr. William Hanlev, candi
date for I'nlted State senator and one
of the leading cattlemen of Harney
county, who was registered nt The
Moore, over .Saturday and Sunday."
"and I have not heard much about
politics, but I guess there has been
no marked change since I left Port
land. Just at this mid-season, f.irmers
nnd ranchers are too busy harvesting
their splendid crops lo give more than
a casual moment to things political."
Mr llnnley came from his home
ranch, the Hell A, via Burns to .lu
tura by automobile, stopping off be
tween trains at Vale. He said that in
all of the years he had been In this
part of Oregon, he never saw the con
ditions better and the farmers bus
ier. "Why, alt along the route I no
ticed great actlvltv nnd as far as I
could tell the farmers are pretty well
al g wth their harvesting There Is
a world of activity. Certainly one
cannot see signs of the social unrest
that people are talking about, at any
rate not In this section of Oregon At
any rate the farmers of Malheur and
Harney counties haven't the same com

west -there seems to be no real scar

the homeslttadera. many of whi h I

to work In the fields, are helping to
solve this question for us.
"Anyway, Its deeds, not words, that
count In this or any part of the coun

the dog days, politics is at a stand
tall. It won't be before the first or
the middle of August that things will
