OREGON CITY, Or., -July 29. (Spe
cial.) The divorce market was brisk
today and three suits, emanating in
Multnomah County, were filed In the
Circuit Court. Wilbur F. Brock was
married to ila Brock in Tacoma,
Wash.. April 18. 1893, and he charged
her with desertion June 26, 1905. They
have one child, Wilbur Wesley, aged
13 years. Mrs. Brock appeared at the
courthouse immediately after the com
plaint was filed and accepted service.

SH1XGLE MEX SUPPRESS XEWS
Keep Fact Secret Regarding Pricee

SEATTLE, Wash.. July 29. (Special.)
A confidential circular sent out by the
Shingle Mills Bureau declares that the
fact was known In April to officials
of the bureau that the Great Northern
would move empties to this city in
June to handle shingle shipments. The
news was suppressed, the circular

The circular says the Shlngrle Mills
Bureau has not griven any single mar
ket quotations because in the earlier
part of the year labor would have mis
interpreted them and made extravagrent
demands for higher 'wages, the prices
would have been copied by Eastern
trade journals and have led retailers
to bear the market and delay ordering
because they did not agree with whole
saler's quotations, and because In May
the quotations would have shown the
beginning of a price decline and would
have oeen widely advertised by whole
salers in a bear campaign. Credit Is
claimed by the bureau in its confidential
circular for compelling wholesalers to
pay not less than $2.25 for stars and
$2.50 for clears, despite an effort the
wholesalers were making to get the
shingles on the basis of $1.75 and $2.
Many of the wholesalers were loaded
up with orders at cheap prices taken
In an agreed movement to keep the mar
ket steady last Winter. The market at
that time showed every indication of
going wild and wholesalers steadied
it by their contracts. When they sought
to buy shingles on the rate tacitly
agreed upon, the manufacturers in
sisted upon higher prices.

FARMERS ENTER A PROTEST
Movement at Walla Walla to Resist
Advance In Warehouse Rates.
WALLA WALLA, Wash., July 29. (Spe
cial.) Fifty-nine representative of the
Walla Walla County Graingrowers' Asso
ciation met Saturday and discussed the
warehouse difficulty, with a view to pro
viding ways and means to compel the
railroads and warehousemen to reduce
the exorbitant charges now Imposed upon
them for the storage of their grain. The
additional charge was announced last
week when the combination of ware
housemen gave notice that the storage
charge would be Increased from 50 cents
to 75 cents a ton, and that, after January
t an additional charge of 10 cents a ton
per month would be placed into effect.
Prosecuting Attorney Rupp appeared be
fore the meeting at the request of several
members of the association. Mr. Rupp
stated that he was powerless to take ac
tion against the warehousemen, inasmuch
as there is nothing under the state laws
which would justify him in going ahead
with the case.
A committee consisting of Messrs. W.
H. Stlne, Thomas Ennls, Richard Thomp
kins, Edward Reser and Archie Donohue,
was appointed by the association to work
in conjunotion with the Commercial Club
and to thoroughly investigate the present
condition, apd if possible, bring relief to
the grain growers of Walla Walla County.

Trouble Was of Long Standing.
Henry's wife, in an interview, said this
trouble dated from the last anniversary
dinner of her marriage. She declared that
on this occasion her sister-in-law spoke
ill of her to her husband.
"I ean never forget," Mrs. Huntington
went on, "that my husband broke with
his family rather than permit me to be
insulted in his presence."
Major Huntington was one of the best
known Americans In Paris, and he and
his family have long been taking promi
nent parts in the social and official gaiety
of the French capital. He was a retired
Army officer, and prior to taking up his
residence abroad lived in Chicago, where
he was an associate of those prominent
in Army and business circles. In Paris he
became well known for his after-dinner
speeches at the American Club, of which
he was one of the organizers. He was ex

Edith Huntington also abjured her

and fired one shot each at the brother
