Plan to Rid Jackson County of the
San Jose Scale.
JACKSONVILLE, Or.. Sept. S. (Special.)
At the' meeting of the Rogue River
Fruit Growers' Union held here today, S.
1 Bennett, president of the union, was In
the Chair. A. H. Carson, commissioner for
the Third Horticultural district, was in
troduced and spoke at length on the neces
sity of a broader and more perfect union
of the fruit industry, to. meet the. influence
of other associated industries. His ad
dress was plain, simple and practical and
listened to with much Interest.
Professor E. R. Lake, botanist and hor
ticulturist of the "State Agricultural Col
lege, spoke on the subject of fruitgrow
ing from a business and scientific stand
point, and showed the necessity of an In
telligent selection of stock to meet the
demands of the market. He said the best
quality of fruit, though much, higher in
price than the ordinary goods, sold more
readily, and that the demand for first
quality was practically without limit, and
that It would constantly increase. Mr.
Lake's address was both scientific and
practical and covered pretty generally the
whole field of horticulture. The professor
concluded by saying from his observa
tions that the one' Important demand of
the valley was -a suitable cannery for 'the
preservation of a large amount of fruit
which now goes to waste.
Professor A. B." Cordley, entomologist
of the State Agricultural College, called
attention to the great good that had been
accomplished in California by the intro
duction of the Australian Lady-Bird
beetle which had cleared the orange and
lemon orchards of the destructive Cushion
scale. He then spoke of the general dis
tribution of the San Jose scale In this
country and the world-wide search that
has" been made, under the auspices of the
United States Entomologist for the orig
inal home of the scale, in the hope that
some similar Lady Bird might be found
to feed upon and destroy it, and told of
the success -which has attended the
search. The professor said he had suc
ceeded in o"btalnIng through Dr. Howard
some .of these beetles and. exhibited them
at. the meeting. The professor stated that
he: wished to introduce them here If he
could find ,a suitable place where they
would not be disturbed by spraying.
The Lady Birds were placed In Peter
Brltt's orchard, In Jacksonville, and their
growth and. operations will be watched
with much Interest.

Oyster planting and gathering on Shoal

a great many visitors come in over the

remaining less than 1000 visitors" at the

will hie themselves to their city homes

satisfactory service this season, trains

Extra launches have been used to carry
returning visitors to Astoria, so that none
have been compelled to stay longer than
they desired. This new departure has
been generally appreciated, as hereto

MRS. TROMLEY IS ARRESTED
Wife of Tarred-and-Feathered Man
Accased of Larceny ls Bailee
Was About-to Leave Town With.
HILLSBORO, Or., Sept 8. (Special.)
The residence occupied by Mrs. Lizzie
Glshweiler-Tromley, the wife of the man
who was tarred and feathered, burned this
morning between 6 and 7 o'clock, and Mrs.
Tromley was for many hours in charge of
the local Constable, being examined be
fore Deputy District Attorney E. B.
The house had been awarded 'to Sylves
ter Vaughn, an aged man from Sea.ttle,
who sued for possession In the Circuit
Court on the ground that the women had
defrauded him out of the property. In
July of this year the woman married
Tromley In Vancouver, Wash., and came
back to Hillsboro to reside.
Then commenced riotous scenes about
tho place. Tromley would become Intoxi
cated on the wine kept In the house and
then go out and abuse neighboring wom
en, threatening to kill, and making a gen
eral nuisance of himself. This conduct so
exasperated the citizens of the town that
Tromley was treated to a coat of - tar and
feathers, and upon his return was lodged
In Jail on a charge of threatening to kill.
Tho firm of H. Wehrung & Son had a
chattel mortgage on Mrs. Tromley's house
hold effects, and after the tar-and-feather
incident instructed their attorney to col
lect their claim or sell out the property.
The matter dragged along until last week,
when Tromley and the authorities agreed
that he and his wife were to leave the
city, and the charge was to" remain over
his head. They were to have decamped
As they had not settled the Wehrung
claim tho Constable went to the house
yesterday and notified the woman not to

gage. He watched all day and part of the
night As soon as he had gone the val
uable piano and other furniture, all mort
gaged, was hauled to a barn In East
Htllshnro. n.t 2 o'clock this mnrninjr. The
climax came when a fire alarm was turned"
In this morning. The house was ruined
by the blaze, and several old sofas, bed
springs and chairs were visible in the
When "asked where the piano was." she
stated to the attorney for the Wehrungs
that It had burned, and showed where it
was supposed to have stood. Pitchforks
were procured, and the entire floor care
fully searched, but no wire or other me
tallic substance could be discovered. This
led to an Investigation, and the piano and
accompanying furniture were found.
Charles Stewart who knew nothing of
the chattel mortgage, stated that the
woman had hired him to haul the piano
nnd furniture to his barn, and that she
was to pay him $25 for the service of se
creting the load and shipping it to her
after she had left Hlllsboro. The woman
was placed under arrest late thi3 after
noon on a charge of larceny by bailee, and
her bonds fixed at SS00.
The first question Mrs. Tromley asked,
after the fire, was whether or not the In
surance was yet covering the property.
She was told that the policy had been
canceled several days ago, when she was
notified to that effect Although the coal
oil can was found in the center of the
sitting-room after the fire,, no charge of
arson has been preferred. Mrs. Tromley
alleges she slept in her clothes all night,
and gives this as explanation as to why
she was fully dressed at so early an hour.
ROAD SUPERVISORS HOLD OVER.
JndKe Boise Decides Legislature
Did Not Contemplate Vacancies.
DALLAS, Or., Sept. 8. (Special.)
Judge R. P. Boise, sitting at an adjourned
term of Circuit Court for Polk County,
Department No. 2, today rendered a de
cision to the effect that Road Supervisors
elected In June, 1902, are entitled to hold
ofllce until January 1, 1904. The case at
Issue, that of E. C. Kfrkpatrick vs. John
Middleton, Supervisor of road district No.
17, has attracted considerable attention in
Polk County and elsewhere, not becauso
of the amount involved, but because of
legal questions which affected not only
the defendant but also every other Road
Supervisor in Oregon.
Ever since the passage of the road law
by the last Legislature there has been
much contention as to whether the law of
1903 repealed the act of 1901, and legislated
out of office the Road Supervisors holding
under that act The case of Kirkpatrick
against Middleton was brought in order to
test this question in the courts.
A few weeks ago Middleton demanded
of Kirkpatrick the payment of $3 road poll
tax. Kirkpatrick refused to pay the
amount, on the ground that he held
legal claim against Folk County for a
sum equal to or greater than the amount
of the tax. Middleton refused to recognize
or accept Ktrkpatrlck's claim and Imme
diately began an action in the Justice
Court for the tax. A trial was had and
the Justice rendered Judgment against
Kirkpatrick for the amount of the tax
The case was then taken to the Circuit
Court for review, tho principal conten
tentlon raised by Kirkpatrick being that

and that by reason of said repeal Middle

After hearing the arguments of counsel
Judge Boise decided this afternoon that

new bids much lower, as now a great
portion of the work must be done during
the Winter months. The bids opened to
day were as follows:
