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. C. A.

Five Hundred Men Engaged in the Buicinenn on Shonlwater Bay. NAHCOTTA. "Wash., Sept & (Special.) Oyster planting and gathering on Shoal water Bay is last growing into a large and profitable Industry. Fully 500 men and more than 100 boats are engaged In the business. The natural beds are south of this place on the bay and at Mena Flats. .The bivalves are taken from these boils' with grappling tongs, loaded Into boa"t3 where -they are "sorted, ' the large or matured are sacked and the young ones are transplanted In beds at Bay Cen ter, Oysterville and.Toke Pointy These beds belong to Individuals and companies, and are growing more valuahle every' year. At Toke Point and Oysterville, a great many carloads of young Eastern oysters have been shipped In and trans planted. These youngsters grow very fast and become finer and fatter than in their native warmer waters, they have a richer flavor and are considered a finer table delicacy than the far-famous Bluo Points.

ILWACO. Wash., Sept. S. (Special) Notwithstanding the fact that the Sum mer has been cool and the season for sea side pleasure short, the number of visi tors at Long Beach, the Breakers and Ocean Park has been large. Superintendent Smith, of the I. R. &. N. R. R., says that up to date his com pany has handled about 18,000 people with out taking any account of children, but as a great many visitors come in over the mail steamer Reliable from South Bend and from Chinook, it is Impossible to obtain at this point the exact number that has taken their Summer outing on this part of the coast. Thero are now remaining less than 1000 visitors" at the hotels and cottages, and most of them will hie themselves to their city homes before the 15th. Many will leave Monday and the hotels expect to close on that date. The I. R. & Nv has given a very satisfactory service this season, trains ijeing run as often as the travel demanded. 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 fore the regular steamer, plying between this point and Astoria, was frequently unable to carry the crowds. The L R. & N. is doing a good "business now hauling sawlogs from Shoalwater Bay to the Columbia River, where they are towed to Portland. This business has but recently been developed, but it Is taxing the rolling stock of the road- to accommodate It. TO PROPAGATE THE! SOCKEYES. Commissioner Kershaw "Will Try to Fix Ternur'WIth Canadians. WHATCOM, Wash., Sept. S. State Fish Commissioner Kershaw left today for Washington, D. C, where he goes to urge upon Secretary of State Hay the neces stly lor diplomatic action between the Washington and Ottawa Governments which will permit the State of Washing ton or Puget Sound canncrymen in their private capacities establishing sockeye salmon hatcheries on the Fraser River, the exclusive spawning ground of that fish, and which flows entirely through British Columbia Territory. Steps taken by the British Columbia authorities looking to the establishment of these hatcheries by Americans have in the past been disapproved at Ottawa. The extremely short runs of the past two years have convinced American and Brit ish Columbia canners alike that the sup ply has nearly been exterminated, and that artificial propagation alone will re store it. They have placed the case before the Canadian Minister of Marine and Fisheries in the strongest possible way, and that gentleman has invited Commissioner Kershaw to call on him in Ottawa after finishing with Secretary Hay, and to gether they will try and agree on a draft of a bill which will accomplish the desired result, and" which the Canadian Minister will urge the Canadian . Parlia ment, then in session, to-pass. SWEDE DRINKS CARBOLIC ACID. An Ounce and a Half of the Poison Kills Instantly. OLYMPIA, Wash., Sept, 8. (Special.)

A valuable constitutional tonic KENNEDY HAS FRIENDS HILLSBORO CLERGYMAN IS BE LIEVED INNOCENT BY THEM. It 1 Alleged that Mrs. Mackinder Sworn Testimony Is Far From Convincing. FOREST GROVE, Or., Sept 8. (Spe cialsRev. R. H. Kennedy, who was held in Hlllsboro on a charge of burglar izing the Warren home, but has just been released on a bond furnished in the main from here, is far from giving the Im pression of one who could be a house breaker, even though the victims claim their despoller was gentlemanly and well educated. Gentlemanly he certainly Is and well educated, too, for ho Is a Har vard man of the class of '93, and after ward for three years In the divinity school at Cambridge, but anyone who sees his frank glance and feels his hearty hand clasp will hesitate to believe him a mid night marauder without convincing evi dence.

This was given under the pledge of secrecy, only to be- made public as speedily as the con fidant could get to those who were prose cuting the case, and while Mr. Kennedy's case was not Jeopardized by the disclos ure, he feels deeply the betrayal of confi dence by a brother clergyman, especially as the story gained a misleading color in the telling.

MRS. TROMLEY IS ARRESTED Wife of Tarred-and-Feathered Man Accased of Larceny ls Bailee Was About-to Leave Town With. Obnoxious Spouse. 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. Tongue. 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 this evening. As they had not settled the Wehrung claim tho Constable went to the house yesterday and notified the woman not to pack up any of the furniture under mort 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 ruins. 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 and costs. The case was then taken to the Circuit Court for review, tho principal conten tentlon raised by Kirkpatrick being that Middleton had no iuSa2BtSrSa?IS,e,i?w lower court for the reason that the law RELIEF No. 211 North Limestone Street, Lexington, Kt., May 19, 1903.

The menstrual flow became more anamore painful and I became a burden to myself and family, instead of a help and a pleasure. Wine of Cardui cured me within four months. I soon began to feel a change for the better and at the time of my next period I noticed a great difference. The pain gradually diminished nntil I was entirely well.

After hearing the arguments of counsel Judge Boise decided this afternoon that Middleton is a duly elected, qualified and acting supervisor; that no "authority Is given the court to appoint before January, 1901; that the road districts remain Intact and that the present Road Supervisors hold office under the act of 1901 until Jan uary 1, 1994. The cpurt holds that It was not the intention of the Legislature in passing the law to abolish road districts or to allow any vacancy to. occur In the office of Road Supervisor.
