Sheared Sheep Several Ma
chines in use in Benton.
. The shearing of sheep by machin
ery is largely coming into vogue in
Eastern Oregon, according to the
dispatches. Of 560,000 pounds of
wool sheared in Harney county,
most of it, a telegram says, was ta
ken off by machine. Several ma
chines are use in Benton, county
this season, and areaid to be econ
omical for the purpose. The ar
rangement is simple, with nothing
new or startling about it. The cut-
tine is done on exactly , the same
principle that a barber - cuts hair
with a pair of clippers. In the case
of the sheep, the power s supplied
to the operator of the clippers.
while in the hair cutting process
the barber's hand is the seat of the
motive power. In the first, a big
wheel with a crank to it is fitted
with 'cogs that operate on a smaller
wheel, which in turn moves a pli
able shaft which in turn is attached
to the clippers. One man turns
the crank and the other applies the
clippers to the sheep. Shearing by
the method, after a little practice
is said to be considerably swifter,
and far more humanitarian. By it
the sheep's hide is very rarely
broken, although the wool may be
clipped off much .closer. A dozen
of the machines are in use in this
county. Originally, they, were
designed for goat shearing, but they
are fast passing into use in the
wool industry. In Eastern Oregon
electric power or other power is
used,' and a dozen to 20 pairs of
clippers are operated with the re
sult that huge bands of' sheep are
sheared in a cbmparativly short

What Lawyer Morris Said
About it Since; the Case
Went to Trial.
There is deep concern in Corval
lis over the outcome of the Mitchell
trial, now in progress at Seattle. I
Tidings from the court room are gen
erally looked upon a encouraging.
It has for instance, been observed
in a great many cases where tales
men have been interrogated on the
subject during the examination by
the attorneys, they have almost in
variably declared it to- be their
opinion that Mitchell did right in
killing Creaeld. This means that
the knowledge of Creffleld's teach
ings has become widely dissemin
ated, and in the state of Washing
ton his doings are looked upon with
disfavor. It is known here also
that the attorneys for the defense
are not in any sense ' discouraged
with the outlook. In a letter writ
ten Wednesday evening to a friend
in this city, Mr. Morris, senior
counsel for Mitchell, said that up to
that time, the case had gone pretty
mucn along tne lines He nad ex
pected, and. that he had every hope
of an outcome favorable to his client
He added that the prosecution was
making a strong fight to secure a
conviction, and that the defense
was tneetiBg the assault with equal
vigor, and that he felt reasonably
certPin that those struggling in be;
half of the Mitchell boy would hold
their own in a legal battle.
All Monday, TuesdayWednes
day and Thursday, was spent in se
curing a jury. On the subject, of
jury; Mr. Morris stated in his letter
that he was very well satisfied, al
though most of the rulings of the
court in the process of selecting
them. had been adverse- to the con
tentions of the defense. It is. es
timated now that the trial will oc
cupy the . greater.- part ot next
week. Copies of the Seattle papers
received in Corvallis teem with ac
counts of the trial, to which large
space is given up to pictures, in
cidents and other details of the pro
The discouraging feature of the
trial is the attitude of Esther
Mitchell and Mrs. Starr, sisters of
thejdefen4ant. They are apparent
ly, still junder the Creffield influence
and claim to have a revelation that
u is ijroa s win mat mey oo not
give testimony to aid their brother,
whom they, insist, should suffer the
fall fenaltit of the law. If Mitchell
goes jfokfra gallows it will be be

m&owa sisters. Mrs. Starr went
tOjSeattlerletermined to aid her
brother; but after an interview with
her sister? Esther, changed her
"j Tfte jury was secured last night
and the 'taking of evidence is in
progres& today. The witnesses for
the prosecution are, Maud Hurt,
two policemen, two doctors, and a
Seattle newspaper ' reporter - v It is
expected that their testimony will
all be in today, and that the evi
dence for the defense will begin to
