j UNION, Or.. June K. (Staff Corre
Krondfince.) The openinj day of the
fifth annual stock show of Union has
j passed and all records for high-class
stock, for track Bports and attendance
for opening day have been eclipsed.
Tonight the rood people of this com
ins little city, from the president of the
show association down to the -humblest
'and lowliest, are happy and Jubilant.
The weather has been simply perfect.
Indeed, a fairer day never dawned and
Insert over this picturesque and pro
lific valley than was enjoyed today.
Shortly after noon, through streets
"thronged with people, the affair opened
. with the parade, headed by President
George Benson, followed by the Union
band. Then came the beautiful float of
the queen, Miss Tenona Cross, and she
looked as lovely as any real, queen ever
looked. With her were her four beau
tiful maids. Misses Carnle Vandervan

Then came the horses, the ponies, the
women and men mounted, the North
Powder band, other equestrians and
.equestriennes, boys riding and driving,
Shetland ponies, cowboys and cowgirls,
Imported and thoroughbred horses, led
and driven.- Then, but why repeat? It
was a great parade, over half a mile
long, a parade In which the horse was
At the fairgrounds on the edge of
town the grandstand of former days
has been doubled in capacity; the shed
and stables nearly doubled and the
track has been put In fine condition.
The fun there began faat and furious.
:The first event was the judging- of the
equestriennes, nine contending for
prises. Beauty of costume, the paces
and style of the horses, the pose of the
rider all of these counted.
After thorough Inspection Miss Exer
White, Mrs. R. C. Klngsley and Mrs.
Myrtle DeLay took first, second and
third prizes in the order named. Then
a silver cup, presented by the O.-W- R.
X. Company, was awarded to Jack
McCarthy, of La Grande, for the -appearance
and action of his Morgan stal
lion, Dan. . .
Burkina; Exhibition Given.
In this contest grooming, behavior
and the general action of the animals
only were taken Into consideration.
Then came the high jumpers, the Shet
land pony race, an exhibition of buck

two in three. This was won by Ro

A flve-elghtas ralle dash for the win

three, more bucking, then the chariot
and relay races. The 12H-mile relay,
each rider having six saddled horses,
a change from horse to horse every half
mile, was bitterly contested for 14
rounds between Fred Spain and Alton
Jleneford, but Spain quit cold at that
point when Heneford headed him for
the first time. He said he and his
mounts were all in.
Another relay race of three rounds,
IVi miles, between Misses Ollle Osborne
and Genevieve Pierce, was won by Miss
Osborne. This was, up to that time,
the most exciting contest of the day.
Miss Osborne won out by less than a
The chariot races were also very ex
citing. There were two of theBe, two
teams of four horses each In each race.
The lust heat was won in 69 seconds by
less than half a length.
Taken in Its entirety it was an aft
ernoon of "some" sport, and tomorrow
promises Just as much fun. There were
probably 2600 people on the grounds
today, but tomorrow will see a much
larger crowd. About SO automobile
loads are coming from Baker and large
delegations from La Grande and all the
other nearby towns.

MEDFORD. Or., June 5. (Special.)
Medford ranchers called in the local
police force today to aid them In se
curing laborers. Headed by Chief of
Police Hittson a dozen ranchers made a
circuit of the saloons and rounded up
about 20 hobos who promised to lead a
hand. Many were sick, others were
poor at farming, still others were bound
for other climes until the chief an
nounced that any of them who hadn't
a dollar In their pockets that night
would be gathered up and put to work
on the rockplle. This had the desired
effect. Medford ranchers are busy
pruning and thinning their orchards.
Appropriation by Congress of Lump

According to Strength In

ORBGONIAN NEWS BUREAU. "Wash
ington, June 6 To provide pay for
the organized militia of the several
states and to make the state militia
available for service In foreign coun
tries are two reforms which Secretary
of War Garrison has set out to accom
plish, with the aid of CongresB, and he
is now at work on a bill or bills which
will make these changes, otherwise Im
prove the militia of the several states
and make It mnr fffAivD .
Jum-t of the Regular Army.
i. uere nas peen considerable talk dur
ing the past year or two about the ad
visability of passing a militia pay bill
and such a bill was fairly well matured
during the last Congress, though it
failea of passage. Never has Congress
given serious consideration, however, to
the question of allowing the state mili
tia to serve In a foreign country. Sec
retary Garrison believes the time has
come when both these things should be
provided for by Congress, and he so
declared at a conference recently held
at the War Department.
Fund Proposed for States.
Secretary Garrison proposes to en
large the present Dick militia law in
such way that the Federal Govern
ment, through the states and not by
direct appropriation, shall pay the
members of all state militia organiza
tions. He proposes that Congress shall
appropriate a lump sum annually for
the pay of the militia, this lump sum
to be apportioned among the states In
proportion to the strength of the re
spective militia organizations, as the
present appropriation for equipment,
etc., is made and apportioned. The
states will then take the fund, and see
that it Is properly disbursed, relieving
the Government of this much of the
In order to make the state troops
available for foreign service in time of
war, the Secretary has found a way of
meeting the constitutional provision
that the mllltla can only be used to re
pei invasion. Heretofore this has been
held to render It impossible for the
Federal Government to call on the mill,
tla, as it would have done had it the
authority during the recent Mexican
trouble, and as it would have liked to
do had Intervention been found neces
sary. But as there is no law under
which the mllltla, as such, can be sent
to a foreign country, the Secretary and
his legal advisers find that they can
automatically transform the mllltla Into
United States Volunteers, If Congress
will provide the necessary machinery,
and when this is done, the militia can
be sent abroad, the same as the Regu
lar Army In time of war or emergency.
Laws Seed R .-vofli ligation.
In addition to this, Secretary Garrison
finds that an entire new codification of
the laws relating to the state mllltla
should be made so as to clear up the
status of the- state troops, and clearly
define their relation to the Federal
Government. Some of the existing laws
are not suited to present day conditions:
others are not clear as to their mean
ing, and It is found that a number of
important changes are necessary In
order to bring the state militia up to
the standard which It is hoped ulti
mately It will attain.
"In my opinion," said Secretary Gar
rison, discussing the need for militia
legislation, "the Federal Government
should either enact legislation which
will make the militia a real
ond line of defense or it should
witnaraw the support which it is
now giving to the organized militia
of the several states. Under the Dick
law there has been a great improve
ment In the character of the National
Guard, but the state authorities, as well
as Army officers, recognize that the
mllltla is not now a military foroe to
be depended on In the event of war.
Some of the organizations have gotten
up to a fairly good state of efficiency,
but that is not true of all the states,
and the paper strength of the National
Guard does not represent its actual
strength In the event of war. I be
