might get liquor, and went even farther,
and asked that the, liquor be given them
as a courtesy to him.

P EXDLETON, Or., May 11. (Special.)
Having unbounded confidence in Major
McFatridge, and believing that the best
Interests of the Umatula reservation
and all those having any dealings with
it will be best conserved by the reten
tion of him as agent, the business men
of Pendleton held . a meeting tonight to
take sterfe In his behalf. As the meeting
was behind closed doors, it is not
known what action was decided upon,
but it is probable that a petition and
indorsement of McFatridge signed by
every business man in Pendleton and
every renter of Indian lands will be
wired to Commissioner Leup if he can
There was also some talk this morn
ing of sending a man to Washington
and this may be done. In addition,
Senators Bourne and Chamberlain and
Representative Ellis will be appealed
to in McFatridge's behalf.
Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Gardner, who
were industrial instructors and boys'
matron respectively at the Indian school
and who were transferred to Oklahoma
as a result of trouble with the agent,
resigned rather than make the transfer
and are now living in Pendleton. They
were evidently two of the employes who
have criticised the agent's management
of the school to the department, and
when seen this evening, Mr. Gardner
said neither he nor his wife had filed
any charges against McFatridge and
that they had simply testified as to the
charges already filed by McManus, the
Gardner confirmed to some extent the
accusation that the agent had been se
vere in his school management. He said
McFatridge inclined to be autocratic, dic
tatorial and overbearing.
McFatridge absolutely refuses to make
any statement. He has not received any
notice from Washington and does not
know whether he has been dismissed,
transferred or promoted.
AGEXT TOO SEVERE, IS CHARGE
Employes of School Make Complaint
as to Management at Agency.
OREGON1AN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington, May 11. Major E. McFatridge,
Indian Agent at Umatilla, has been sus
pended by Acting Indian Commissioner
Valentine because of dissatisfaction with
his administration of school affairs on the
reservation and the agency, and the
school has been placed temporarily In
charge of Supervisor .Charles E. McChes
ney. Commissioner Valentine is preparing
to' recommend to Secretary Ballinger
that McFatridge be transferred to some
other branch of the Indian service, where
he will not have jurisdiction over school
authorities.. Secretary Ballinger will take
no action until he investigates all facts.
Commissioner Valentine today informed
Representative Ellis that In the handling
of finances and land affairs of the Uma
tilla Agency. Mr. McFatridge. had given
entire satisfaction, but considerable fric
tion had arisen between the jwajor and
various employes of the Umatilla school,
which in Valentine's Judgment rendered
it necessary that a change of agents be
made, Four school employes at Umatilla
charge. McFatridge. with arrogance and
undue severity in his supervision of
school matters. These accusations were
first made, several months ago. When
Major McFatridge was in Washington in
February he talked with Commissioner
Valentine about these charges, and was
instructed as to how he should thereafter
deal with school employes. Commissioner
Valentine now holds that McFatridge,
after his return to Umatilla, did not fol
low instructions, and his alleged in
subordination is probably the direct cause
of Valentine's recommendation that he
be' transferred from Umatilla.
Friends of McFatridge at Pendleton,
TO BREAK UP A COLD IN
TWENTY-FOUR HOURS AND CURE
ANY COUGH THAT IS CURABLE
Mix one-half ounce of Virgin Oil
of Pine compound pure with two
ounces of Glycerine and a half-pint
of good Whisky. Shake well, and
take a teaspoonful every four hours.
It is claimed that this mixture is
most effective in healing any sub
acute affection of "the throat and
bronchial tubes, and will break a
cold quickly,, and cure any cough
that is curable.
, In case Whisky Js not conveni
ently at hand, it is said that the
mixture is just as effective when
prepared with five ounces of tinc
ture of Cinchona compound in place
ot Whisky. As the full formula
given here makes a quantity suffi
cient to last the average family an
entire year,- it is generally . consid-.
ered to be the least expensive as
well -as-, the most effective remedy
for coughs and colds.

they receive. They- admit the agent has
been strict, but Insist the circumstances

Representative Ellis will go over the

OCEAN - TO - COAST TRAINS
CContinued From First Paie.)
fic to and from the Northwest this
year promises to be intense on account
of the exposition at Seattle.
"All roads extending northwest are
preparing for additional train service.
The Chicago & Northwestern Railroad
and the Harriman lines will put on
the Chicago-Portland special May 16.
This train will leave Chicago at 10 P.
M., daily, arriving in Portland at 8 P.
M. the evening of the third day. The
Northwestern has also announced a new
train leaving Chicago at 6 P. M. for
Omaha, SJoux City and Des Moines.
"In connection with this it is rum
ored that the Interstate Commerce
Commission is preparing a decision in
the controversy between the Hill and
Harriman lines, which will open the
Portland gateway. At present the Hill
lines will not accept through passen
gers for the Northwest turned over to
them by the Harriman roads at Port
land. Should the decision go against
the Hill lines It is even then doubtful
if the gateway will be opened In time
for exposition business, as it is ex
pected ttiat the Hill management is
prepared to take the question into the
PLANS OF NEW TRAIX SERVICE
Portland Route Being Chosen for All
Announcement was made by Harriman
officials yesterday of an increased Chicago-Portland
service Sunday, May 16.
At the same time the running time is to
be cut two hours, making the time of the
Chicago-Portland special 70 hours.
The Harriman lines have evidently felt
tlx pur.of the new service promised by
the Hill lines on May 23 and have re
sponded with both an accelerated and an
increased service. In place of leaving
at 9:16 A. M., 4he Chicago-Portland spe
cial will, on May 16, pull out at 10 A. M.
and will arrive at Chicago at 12 noon,
in place of 12:30 P. M. From the fore
going dispatches it appears that this will
enable Immediate connection to be made
with the 20th Century Limited and will
cut the present transcontinental time ap
proximately 12 hours.
In .place of connecting with the Over
land Limited at Green River, the Chicago-Portland
special will connect with
the Los Angeles Limited at Cheyenne,
enabling the acceleration between Port
land and Chicago. The Overland Lim
ited will pick up at Green River what
will be known as the Fast Mail, a new
train leaving Portland at 8 A. M., which
will not keep anything like the schedule
of the new Chicago-Portland special.
Leaving Portland at 10 A. M., the new
special will comprise a baggage ear,
standard and tourist sleepers and chair
car, which will be connected with the
Los Angeles Limited. The train will
also haul an observation car and standard
sleeper for St. Louis, which will be
hauled by the Wabash, via Denver and
The Fast Mail will be essentially a lo
cal between Portland, Salt Lake and
Green River, where connections may be
made with the Overland from San Fran
cisco. The rumor that a decision would be
handed down on the question of the
Portland gateway - was not accepted by
local railroad officials as substantiated.
It was agreed that no decision could be
come to before the Exposition business
opened, and rates had already been
agreed jipon and tickets were on sale.
Should the new service place Portland
in. direct connection with New York, as
appears to. be the case, there will be a
tendency for Seattle travel going East
to pass through Portland instead of the
reverse being the case. Where Seattle
Is mqre and more being relegated to a
junction point, Portland seeems to have
established its claim to be the terminal
city of the Northwest. The action
taken by the Northern Pacific in routing
the North Coast Limited over the North
Bank road in place of via Seattle is a
move in the same direction. With the
avowed intention of the C, M. & St. P.
to build later to Portland and the known
plans of the Chicago & Northwestern to
the same end. it would appear that fast
travel will have to be via Portland. The
Great Northern is making Tacoma its
terminal point, as shown by recent an
nouncements, and the withdrawal of the
fast service of the Northern Pacific from
neglect of a c o m m o n cold." It
should be borne in mind that the
action of a cold tends to leave the
respiratory organs sore, and thus
weakens the natural power of re
sistance to attack. Bronchitis,
pneumonia and the dread tubercu
losis often have their origin in
neglect of a "common cold." At
the first Indication of a cold, steps
should be taken to check It at once.
