an Incendiary Started
PENDLETON, Or., Sept. 3. (Special.)
Pirc early this morning partly gutted the
!MaUock-Taylor building on Court street,
causing a loss of between 525,000 and
530,000. The Are was discovered y the
night clerk of the Golden Rule Hotel,
who was startled by a terrific explosion,
and upon making an Investigation he
found smoke Issuing from the rear of the
building. An alarm was quickly turned
In, and the Are department did heroic
work In saving the ontlrc block, finally
getting the flames under control between
4 and 5 o'clock.
Fire started in the room occupied by
the Pendleton Cigar Factory, and It is
believed to be of Incendiary origin. Mayor
Matlock, one of the owners of the build
ing, is of the opinion that the fire was
the work of an incendiary, and officers
are now making an investigation.
The architect office of Howard &
Swingle was totally destroyed, with &
loss of over 52000, covered by only 5500 in
surance. A. J. McMullan. owner of the cigar fac
tory, estimates his loss at 53000. with 51000
The room and fixtures occupied by the
Woodmen of the "World were also de
stroyed. Nearly as much loss was caused
by waer, which seeped through the floors
and damaged, the stocks of the Model

ELECTION ' TO HIDE FRAUD
Defaulting: School Director Made Re
turn That 33 Votes Were Cast.
NORTH YAKIMA, Wash.. Sept. 3.
(Special.) W. R. Laidlor. the defaulting
school director of the Topponlsh district,
is to the front again in a sensational case
that has Just come to light in Yakima
Centy. He has been In jail for the past
three weoks on the charge of having is
sued fraudulent warrants against the dis
trict, being unable to procure bail. An
investigation by the Prosecuting Attorney
rovoals the startling fact that Laidlor
hold an election in the district July IS
last, for the purpose of voting 512,000 bonds
te liquidate the warrant indebtedness of
"the district. This election proves to have
boon fraudulent in every particular. Laid
lor returned 33 votes as having been cast
at the election, and the Issue carried,
whon in fact no votes but his own wore
April IS last an eloction was held to vote
bonds to pay off the indebtedness of 512,000.
It turned out that when it came to sell
the bonds they would be illegal, for the
reason that the warrants existing at the
time were nearly A per cunt of the total
value of the school district. Another elec
tion was necessary to approve and vali
date the warrants in question. Nothing
was known about the last election at Top
penlsh. July 19. a certificate was .ed with the
County Treasurer, alleging that an elec
tion had hoon held at Toppenlsh, July 15.
and that the warrants were ratified and
validated by a vote of 33 for and none
The Investigation of the Prosecuting
AXtornoy showed that Laldler had held
the olection himself, without giving no
tice to the public, and made tho returns
July 19 to the County Treasurer, as re
quired by law. The whole thing proved to
have, been fraudulent,, and was done, it Is
stated toy the Prosecuting Attorney, by
Laldler to attempt -to cover up his Illegal
dealings In the warrants to the district.
It is said that he has issued something
like 56000 wbrth of these warrants. On
"the strength of the election, bids were
submitted for the bonds of the district,
but they have all since been withdrawn.
ANXIOUS TO BEGIN ON DITCH
Too Long Delay in Klnmath Would :
Mean Loss of Money. '
KLAMATH FALLS. Or.. Sept 3. (Spe
cial '"It has begn decided to start the
wok on the first ten miles of the main
canal for the irrigation of Klamath Basin
In a -very short time," said Project Engi
neer T. H Humphry, who has Just re
turned from Portland, where he attended
tho Irrigation Congress,
"I-believe," continued Mr. Humphry,
"that we are more anxious to start the
work than 4 the people themselves are.
The reason for this Is that we realize
the seriousness of the situation better
than they do. The money has been set
aside by the Government for this work,
but. as there are so many projects clam
oring for money, tho Reclamation Service
cannot afford to let this money remain
idle "'much longer. Therefore we must
start the work here at once or else allow
the money to be used elsewhere."
The first section of this canal will cover
about 10.000 acres of very fertile land
lying, south and east of Klamath Falls.
E. R. Reams, who, it was alleged, was
partially responsible for the delay In
work by not signing up his large hold
ings. It Is now stated, has promised to
sign up. He Is now in Portland, however,
and his absence is causing some delay,
but it is given out by the Reclamation
Service men here that as soon as he re
turns and signs the excess trust deeds,
bids will be advertised for to commence
the work on this first ten miles of the
Secretary Elmer I. Applegate, of the
Klamath Watorusers Association, stated
today that over 20,000 acres of excess
lands had been signed since last Monday
morning. He also stated that at this rate,
which he believed would be kept up,
the 76 por cent of the entire excess hold
ings on the lower project would do
signed up within the next ten days. Then
the Government can proceed with-active
work on the lower project.

FLYER RUNS INTO A WHARF
Four Tugs Pull Her Oft and Only
the Bow Is Injured.
SEATTLE. Wash., Sept. 3.-SpeclaL)
The steamer Flyer, perhaps the best
known water craft In North Pacific wa
ters, and which has for the past 13 years
made four round trips dally botween Se
attle and Tacoma, while attempting to
dock at trie completion of her third round
trip of the day, ran Into the Commercial
wharf. She cut through great timbers
two feet thick, and rammed her bow into
the wharf and street, piling a distance of
30 feet There were 200 passengers aboard
and that no one was killed seems little
short of a miracle.
Captain E. B. Coffin, master of the
vessel, ascribes the accident to a failure
of her reversing gear to work. She was
going at the rate of about four knots an
hour. Many of the passengers aboard,
as well as some of those ashore, say
the Flyer was racing up the bay with
the steamer Port Orchard, which was
returning from the Puget Sound Navy
yard. Four tugs pulled away at the Flyer for
nearly five hours before they could ex

Grim Relics From Quinault Reser
vation Said to Be Shown In
ABERDEEN. Wash., Sept. 3. (Special.)
Visitors returning from Mocllps report
that the Indians on the Quinault reser
vation are muoh Incensed o;er the per
sistent robbery of the graves of tholr rel
atives and friends. In the past year at'
least a score or more graves have been
despoiled of skeletons and valuables. In
some cases only the skulls wore taken,
and the articles burled with them, includ
ing money. The Indians assert that In
one grave 5300 in silver coin was taken
by the ghouls.
Tho Indians the past week took precau
tions to preserve the remains of their
kindred, and tho bodies of oight persons,
all of one family, were taken up and re
burled in a secret and much more secure
place. Forty dollars in silver was takon
out of the coflln of one person exhumed.
The silver was nearly all dated 18S4.
The statements of the members of the
tribe are undoubtedly true, as at least a
dozen Indian skulls may bo located in cer
tain homes in Gray's Harbor.

HDP MIRE RAGING
Tactics Adopted by Bears to
TRY 10 CAUSE STAMPEDE
Unusual Concern for Growers' Wel
fare Expressed by Professional
Short Sellers Circulars
Flood the Country-
GRANT'S PASS. Or.. Sept. 2. tTo the Edi
tor.) The bears and abort tellers are becom
ing desperate, but of all the ridiculous man
euvers resorted to In order to mislead the
grower this latest accusation of the shorts Is
undoubtedly the most absurd. Net content
with misrepresenting conditions to the grow
ers through tho newspapers, they have re
sorted to sending out anonymous circular?.
The latest. August 31, signed, "A True Friend
of the Growers." Of coume the growera are
beginning to open their eyes and giving all
suoh statements and advices the little cre
dence they deserve. One point, however. Is
certainly remarkable; that Is. bow many "tree
friends" the growers' have when the short
sellers and bears have orders to nil up.
Only one thing tends to make the picture
incomplete. The signature la missing. The
growers note this ommUslon with, regret.
Growers are somewhat Inclined te be suspi
cious, consequently as the hopgrower and
holder of 1904 hops have begged the authors
of these circulars to do me the favor of sign
ing their names and addrtcoes la their next
circular, so I may be convinced of their sin
cerity. These letters and circulars I notice are all
Istued from Tacoma and Portland, and I mutt
say are nothing but a bundle of contradictions
and lies. Each In turn urges the grower to
dispose of his hops at once. Each exagger
ates the market and crop conditions to such
an extraordinary extent that even Taooma's
devoted bear editors hold their breath when
asked to publish them.
One of these bear circulars of recent date,
efgned "An Eastern Brewer," however, let
the cat out of the bag when he advised, the
growers to make a point of setting each year
during October or November. Of course, we
understand the suggestion was prompted by
a purely unselfish motive.
I should like the growers to ask themselves
the following questions: If, as bears pre
dict, 1965 bops will not be worth 10 cents,
then wby are the growers urged to contract
l&Nis at 14 and 15 cents? Way do the bears
and disinterested partita urge you to soli?
Why should It concern thea 'whether you get
2 cent or 16? What do you suppose hops
would.be worth If the growers made a point
of setting during October aad November?
Again. It there is no truth in Messrs. Smith
and Durst'6 statements, why do not some of
our "would-be friends" and advisers oome
forward and ehow them up? Why do not
the bears take up the Smith and Durst wager
regarding the 1905 crop? Why do they send
out anonymous circulars roastlag Durst,
Krebs and Smith and The Oregonlaa contrib
utors? They don't sign their names, for they
do not dare. Again, if there was the least
prospect of the "bumper" crops existing that
la being dinned In our ears, what weuM be
the present price of .bops?
Of course, when the short Miters and the
little bear Journals Jump on The Oregoalaa
well. It Is amusing, to say the least. It re
minds one forcibly of the fable of the mos
quito and the elephant.
Personally. I do not Name the bears so
muoh for giving The Oregonlaa a dig when
opportunity affords. That they have causo
to la apparent to the. most casual observer. In
the flm place. The Onrgonlan is one" of the
very few papers thai publishes' the growers
opinions as well as the bears', which Is an
unpardonable offence In the estimation of the
bears. In the second place, it reaches more
farmers than any three of the Urgent publi
cations on the Coaot. Consequently, one can
readily understand why the bars feel sore
and attempt to fling mud at The Oregoalan.
The market has again asramed a firmer
tone. Instead of declining, as the bears are
fcboutlng. the market has advanced. I do not
isee the least cause for apprehension or alarm
regarding the 1905 bops, and eaaaot see why
lOOfr should not command a better price than
ever 1904s did. Time will tell, however, and
I trust time will aim put an end to the spas
modic affection and advice of ew "dear bear
friends." Tours truly.

ENGLISH EXP0BT8 AND IMPORTS.
Comparison of Present Movement "With That
of Last Year.
The lateet mail advices from London say
of the bop movement in Eaglaad:
Again, the official returns mark a great
falling off in the quantity of Imported hops.
In June the figure was 1S21 cwt.. but last
month It dwindled down to 522 cwt, of which
America sent in only 43 cwt.. and other
countries 479. Comparing- July. 1906, with
the same month in the two previous years, we
find that the most recent figure is a little
more than one-sixth of that returned in 19d4.
and less than one-tenth of the figure of 1903.
Our total Imports for the first seven months
of this year are 32.S6S cwt.. against 9S.7P0
cwt. In corresponding period of last year and
52.816 cwt in 1993.
Turning to our expert'. I find that we
shipped last month 608 cwt. of English and
207 cwt. of foreign hops, ro that our out
goings exceeded our arrivals by 522 cwt. Fur
ther examination of our foreign transactions
for the seven months ending July 31 shows that
in the current year we have exported 11,507
cwL, against 11,085 cwt. in 1604 and 7.S9S
cwt- in 1903. the net additional supplies being
for seven months in 1903. 45.31S cwt.; 1994.
67,745 cwt; and in 1905, 21.001 cwt. These
figures prove that foreign reserves must be now
reduced to the lowest possible point, and sug
gest that whatever may be this season's yield
of plantations abroad, the bulk will probably
be required to meet the demands of local con
The Borough is waiting farther develop
ment. Trade Is quiet, but there are Indica
tions in frequent inquiries that consumers are
wanting hops. Of course, values of available
stocks are being lowered by eome holder
who are witling to abide by their past firm
ness, and to refuse to accept the very low
offers that are being made. In another week
or two we shall be better Informed as to
actual prospects; In the meantime, it is wise
to abstain from too certain anticipations, and
to be prepared for the Issue of event, what
ever it may be.

TO TAP THENEZ PERCES
Northern Pacific Company Has the
Choice of Four Hoads.
TACOMA, "Wash., Sept. 3. Special.)
Just what route will be decided upon
by the Northern Pacific Hallway Com
pany for Its proposed new line tapping
the rich Nex Perces country, la Idaho, will
bs decided within the next few days,
according to officials of that road who are
in a position to speak with authority,
although It is not considered probable
that the construction of the new line,
which la to terminate at Grangevlllc, will
be commenced before next Spring, owing
to the lateness of the season and the
arclty of labor.
Engineers In the employ of the com
pany have been busy nearly all Summer
making surveys, four different routes
having been gone over. In Northern
Pacific official quarters it Is no longer
denied that the road will be built.
The plan of the company. It is under
stood, is to use the men now engaged In the
construction of the Rlparia branch to do
the work on the G range vllle branch just
as soon as the former line is completed.
The report of the engineers who have
beten at work la the Nez Perces country
during the Summer will contain four
routes for reaching Grangevlllc.
One plan Is to build a line from Stites
to Grangevllle. While the mileage would
be much less than other routes sur
veyed. It would require grades over which
It would be Impossible to haul heavy
loads. Still another plan, and what Is
believed to be a more practical one. Is
to build a line down from Peck, from
which point the prairie country could
be reached by a much more gradual de
ration, although the distance Is consider
The two remaining propositions pro
vide for lines which would have a much
easier grade, but which would also be
much greater In length. One of these
would be a line from Culdesac. and the
other a lino all the way out from Lewis

If we were to assemble all
those who have been cured of
heart disease tjy Dr. Miles'
Heart CureJ and who would
to-day be in their graves had
not Dr. Miles' been successful
in perfecting' this wonderful
heart specific, they would pop
ulate a large city.
What a remarkable record
a breathing, thinking, moving
monument, composed of human
lives, that for which every
other earthly possession is sac
rificed. The Miles Medical Co. re
ceive thousands of letters 'from
these people like the following:
T feel Indebted to the Dr. Miles'
Heart Cure for my life. I desire to call
the attention of others Buffering as I
did to this remarkable remedy for the
heart. For a long time I had suffered
from shortness of breath after any
little exertion, palpitation of the heart;
and at times terrible pain in the region
of the heart, so serious that I feared
that I would some time drop dead upon
the street. One day I read one of your
circulars, and immediately went to
my druggist and purchased two bot
tles of the Heart Cure, and took It
according to directions, with tho
result that I am entirely cured. Since
then I never miss an opportunity to
recommend this remedy to my friends
who have heart trouble; in fact I am
a traveling advertisment. for I am
widely known In this locality."
