a signal victory over the sheepmen of
Idaho today when, by agreement, the
case of the United States against Ed

ter in the end of the state, and his herd
ers. Ham Sieffert and William Wallace,
wa settled In the United States Clr
cult Court here by the payment, by the
principal defendant, of 1300 for illesa
grazing of Federal forest reserves. Last
June Newman placed four bands of
sheep on the Pocatello National Forest,
in defiance of the authority of the
forest officials and proceeded to range
there for the Summer. The herder
were arrested and the flocks removed.
In the settlement effected today New
man was assessed $175 for the feed con
sumed and $100 punitive damage un
der yesterday's decision of the United
States Supreme Court upholding the
constitutionality of the forest service
regulations. Each of the three de
fendants were fined an additional $25.
The case is one which bas attracted
wide attention and aroused deep in

Idaho and Its compromise settlement,
pending by the Department of Justice

Remarkable Increase In School At

SALEM, Or., May 2. (Special.) Re
turning from a .trip through Central
Oregon, Superintendent Alderman re
ports an activity In school affairs there
which Is surprising to him. He de
clahes that the school facilities are
keeping pace with the active devel

exceptional Increase in school attend
At Prlneville, where the Crook
County High Sclteol is located, the at
tendance has gone up 60 per cent In
the last year.
"This is an exceptionally fine high
school," stated Superintendent Alder
man. "The old Courthouse has been
removed so as to adjoin the hand
some school building and is being used
as a portion of the school. A teachers'
training department, a class in agri
culture, a commercial course are a few
of the departments in high school work
which are proving to be practical.
"The students In Central Oregon. I
find, are willing to undertake anything
and are live and enterprising. They
are'decidedly loyal to their Institu
tions and are aiding materially in de
veloping them, as well as their section
of the state.
"At Redmond the school children are
planning a spelling math with the
planning a spelling match with the
future. At the laymen's meeting,
while I was there, one of the business
men made a remark that the children
could not spell, and the pupils imme
diately extended a challenge and in
tend .to 'show them.'
"I was at Prlneville, Redmond,
Madras and Latdlaw and find that the
work of the schools Is remarkable.
"Redmond has three times as many
pupils as last year and It is necessary
for the town to hold school in halls
above stores, so rapid has been the In
crease. The Oregon Trunk has proved
to be a godsend to the schools as well
as to the country."
