A citizen was in a critical frame
of mind yesterday. The city, he
said, had required barbed wire tor
use in protecting hedges along the
side walks to be taken down.
Much st -ess had been laid on the
enforcement of the law in that par-J
ticular, and in many cases wire
was actually dragged out of hedges
that by growth bad completely ;. erj- (
veloped thern. At the same time:
he concluded, ths city park is com
pletely fenced with wire, and there
l he wire is allowed to stand un
challenged and unforbidden.

Corvallis is in the embrace of a

tsmptuously disregarded. . Finding
that he could eecuie no capital, do
rates and no cars, Mr, Sweet said
that he finally disposed of bis claims
to J. H Judeon for $4,000 and they
soon afterward passed into the
hands of tbe coal company.
But this did not end Sweet's
troubles. He said that he secured
employment 00 the Rio Grande
Western railroad, but wrs discharg
ed through' the influence of the cial
company officials, who also exerted
pressure ou a New York bonding
company to have his bond canceled.
He said that, while be was working
aa agent and operator in the office
of the Pleaeant Valley Coal compa
ny at Colton, Utah, be bad instruc
tions to copy from the commercial
wires of the Western Union Tele
graph company all messages affect
ing tbe icterests of the coal compa
ny. The attention of the president
of tbe Western Union wbs called to
this practice and the wires were re
moved from the office.
Slate Senator George B. Whit
more told of the-armed occupation
of George D. Halladay.B property
by Robert. Kirker and other armed
men. Mr. Whitmore eaid he bad
coal land of his own, but did not
work it, Uciuse the railroad com
pany demanded $3 a ton for haul
ing it to market. ... .
"They said." Mr. Whitmore tes
tified, "that they could sell me the
coal cheaper in Silt Lake."
,. N-rth Yakima, Wa3h., Dec. 1.
Becoming desperate over the failure
of the Northern Pacific to place coal
on the siding here for the relief of
the people without fuel, a raid was
made on a 1 oil t;ai 3 this Luoroit.g
as it wa' passing through the city.
When the train stopped a score or
more of the people who had " beo-n
waiting in line tor three days for
their turn to get coal boarded' the
coal cars and began ti load the fuel
into their wagons, drawn . up along
side of the track. TrainmeD , came
along to 'stop t them, but , alter a
threat to bodily barm, the trainmen
left the men tak'mg the coal. Of
fers were made to pay for it, but
there was no one on band to receive
tb price - - -
Three trainloads of 100. cars
parsed through during the day,
and late this afternoon only four
carloads were set in here. This was
done after the superintendent of the
division had been notified that there
was a movement on foot to hold up
the trains and rob them of the fuel.
The situation is critical here.
There is no fuel at the City hall,
and many of tbe school districts are
out and will have to close. Only
f.iur carloads have been received
here eince Wednesday.
