being made by the A. C Hopkins es
tate. C. A. Hart, attorney for the es
tate, argued the matter before R. S.
Bean, federal judge, yesterday and
asked that the order of United States
Commissioner Cannon be set aside.
Commissioner Cannon ruled that the
estate could not recover the bonds.
According to Mr. Hart, the estate
bought $50,000 of bonds from Morris
Bros., Inx, on December 9, 1920, most
of the securities being in the bond
house at the time. Arrangement was
also made for the purchase of an addi
tional $10,000 worth of securities. De
cember 22 the bond house had gath
ered the $50,000 of bonds and received
a check for $61,000. The extra $1000
was to cover incidental expenses. Or
ders were given, it is alleged, to ship
the bonds December 24 and with them
a check for $800 of the $1000. John
L. Etheridge, president, had left the
city and Fred S. Morris was not fa
miliar with the business, so the check
was unsigned and the bonds were not
shipped when the house closed its

WASHINGTON, D. C, July 27. Ad
mission of Chinese coolie labor to the
Hawaiian islands to relieve the agri
cultural shortage was opposed before
the house immigration committee to
day by H. T. Oxnard, vice-president
of the American Beet Sugar company,
with factories in California, Colorado
and Nebraska. Beet sugar manufac
turers were selling their product at 5
cents when the cost of production was
around 8 cents a pound, he insisted,
and Hawaiian planters should not be
permitted to increase the sugar sup
ply with the aid of Chinese unless the
same labor was freely admitted to the
"All we want is a square deal," he
Oxnard said there was no danger of
the Japanese acquiring business con-
trol of Hawaii.
"Why, we could blow them up in
five minutes," he said, adding that he
meant the navy could go to the, is
lands and bottle up the Japanese.
Island Labor Alarmed.
A report submitted to the American
Federation of Labor today by G. W.
Wright and W, R. Chilton of the
Honolulu Central Labor union said
that if Chinese coolies were admitted
to Hawaii the Japanese, many of
whom work on the, plantations, would
be driven to compete in skilled labor
with the whites, who in turn would
be driven from the islands. They are
here to testify before a house com
mittee. No need for imported labor exists in
Hawaii, the report said, adding that
if the planters were forced to use
coolies they should reorganize their
industry. The report declared that
the . sugar planters were dominating
affairs of the territory and recom
mended encouragement for American
farmers in Hawaii, asserting that they
would build up a desirable middle
class of society.
U. S. Standards Urged.
"We have taken our stand for
Americanism for American stand
ards," the report stated' "and we be
lieve that the sugar industry, if man
aged intelligently, would be able to
maintain American standards. -If it
cannot we believe it has no place in
modern society in an American com
munity." FIDS TO . BE SHIFTED
ASTORIA TO TRANSFER MONEY
TO MEET BOXD INTEREST.
Suits Are to Be Brought to Get
Tax Money Due, Which Is Es
timated at $900,000.
ASTORIA, Or., July 27. (Special.)
As a result of the conference between
city officials, business men and the
board of directors of the chamber of
commerce, it was decided among other
To pay the interest on bonds due
August 1 from other funds now in
the hands of the city treasurer.
To file several test suits to fore
close liens on property upon which
taxes and assessments are unpaid.
To' consider the proposal to issue
short-time bonds to take up the out
standing warrants of the city and
place it on a cash basis.
The most pressing problem was
that of meeting the interest payment
due August 1. City Treasurer Zeig
ler had reported that he only had a
few hundred dollars in the fund for
this purpose, though there was suf
ficient money in other funds. He re
fused, however, to make a transfer
without authorization. In the opinion
of those present this was the only
feasible thing to do.
It developed at the meeting that
there is more than $900,000 due the
city in unpaid improvement assess
ments. City Attorney Mott expressed
the opinion that the liens on the
property which these assessments
constitute can be foreclosed and title
given to the city. It was the general
opinion that several such suits should
be filed at once.

STOCK IS SLEEK AND FAT
Horses of Grand Ronde Valley Are
LA GRANDE, Or., July 27 (Spe
cial.) The livestock of the valley is
in the best condition in many years.
Local stock is sleek and fat and' free
from disease. One factor leading to
the fine condition of the stock is the
excellent pasture which is found both
I in the valley and in the hills.
I have never seen things in better
shape, said Dr. Charlton, veterinarian
here for many years, "and tbe live
stock so free from contagion as it is
at the present time. The Grand Ronde
horse, famed far and wide, is still in
demand, and during the last week I
have received from several sources
inquiry concerning buying. Several
carloads are wanted here this fall.
A trip over the valley proves that the
horses as well as other stock ot Grand
Ronde valley are in fine condition."
BANKS REFUSE WARRANTS
La Grande Institutions Carrying
Limit of Union Connty Paper.
LA GRANDE, Or.. July 27. (Spe

longer being cashed by either of the
two local banks, the reason being
given that the banks are loaded up
with this class of paper. It is under
stood that the La Grande National
bank is carrying about $45,000 in
county warrants and the United
States National bank about $42,000.
. Officials of both banks say that if
the $400,000 bond issue had been sold
the county could have taken up the
warrants now held by the bank, but
as this issue could not be marketed
at satisfactory terms, the only re
course is to wait for provisions for
taking up the warrants by taxation.
This cannot be done this year.
