Livingetope and oth- era told bow the fuel company en joyed a railroad rate about ooe-balf that of the public, and was thus able to crush out all competition. Tha government was particular to secure all the evidence available on tbi rebating evil, and propose to place it before the attorney general as material' in prosecution of the fuel company and the railroada granting the rebates. Byron Groo, former secretary of State Land Board of Utah, was questioned as to how title to thous ands of acres of land was passed from the state of Utah to the coal companies. He admitted that large tracks of land were so disposed of by the state land board, but said he could riot remember the amounts Pa or other de-alls of the transac tion George D. Halliday, of Salt Lake City, to of, his efforts to acquire title to a tract of coal land in Whit more Canyon, near Sunnyside. He organized the Halliday Coal Com DaDy and undertook to mine ooal Robert; Forester, geologist of the Utah Fuel Company: W. J.

Later, during . his ab- s-. c, armed men went in and took P t"r.-?ion ,of his property, to. which 8 man named Kobert Kirker set up a claim.

From tue time Kirker jumped the claim, he testihed, until he sold out his r'ght to the Pkasaot Valley Com- pany, he was not, permitted to go upon his land. . This land, which Halliday located in 1897, today is one of the most valuable coal and coking properties owned by. tbe v lah b uel Company.

Logan asked that tbe trial be set two weeks -ahead, stating that it would take thrt time to secure the evidence and get witnesses here. The date was first set for the 13th of the month, but whether due to a suLcrs'iti. . 3 fear of that date, or as a matter of convenience, the attorney for io defendant secured the hearing of the trial on tbe 10th.

Oregonian: For about ten minutes late yester day atternoon Mount Mood took: on the glistening pink glow of the sun set and held all spectators spell bound by the glorious beauty of its coloring. It is not an unusual thin' to Bee the mountain reflect-....... ing the pink and red of the sun, ' but there was a delicious shading aod mellowness about it yesterday which caused artists to gaze in ado ration, and common, every-day in dividuals to stop and wonder at the beauty of it. There have been no successful pictures of Mount Hood showing this wonderful coloring, as s repro duction appears grossly unnatural and lacks tbe transparent lightit ;;. At sunset the changes are rapid, and there will be brief iostancea when the effect is that of a spot light turned upon the peak. As tbe sun dropped below the horizon yesterday, the blue mists crept up irom ioo iimoer line, gradually en veloping tne mountain, until at last the glowing tip was submerged and1 old Hood again stood out in'r' tbeP- steel-blue cold Dees of a winter's day "Where in this country or anyi v any other country would one see such a sight as that!" enthusiastic ally sighed a nature-loving epecta tor.
