Sheep - Slayers Begin Their
Work in Klamath, Near
the State Line.
RAID MADE BY MASKED MEN
Herder Is Tied Up and Over a Hun
dred of His Plock Are Iiaid
Out Cold on the
KLAMATH FALLS, On, April 21
(Special.) News comes from. Lorella, in
the southeastern part of Klamath County,
of another slaughter of sheep and outrage
upon the herder committed by a band of
masked men, supposed to be working la
the interest of the cattle-owners.
On the 13th of the month nine men, with
their faces effectually concealed by masks.
rode tip to the sheep camp of Ivlum &
McKendree and covered the lone herder
with their rifles. The man was trussed
up so he could- not move," his head cov
ered with a sack, and then the slaughter
of the seep began.
Herder Gets Loose.
About 150 shots in all were fired, the
herder thinks. "When he finally managed
to wriggle loose from his fastenings he
found over 100 animals dead on the ground
and the remainder of the band scattered
almost beyond recall. Most, of these
frightened muttons will fall prey to the
coyotes before they can be brought back
to the safeguard of a shepherd.
This camp of Klum & McKendree Is
nearly down on the border line between
Oregon and California, and in the vicln
ity of Langcll's Valley.
Sheep Camp Burned.
After leaving the scene of the slaugh
ter the marauders rode to the sheep camp
of pave Elder, still further east, and
destroyed everything valuable by fire.
News -of the kiUIng has caused a great
deal of excitement among sheepowners
who have heard of it, and fear is ex
pressed that this marks the beginning of
another season of terror in Central Ore
gon. Already further north a band of
sheep was destroyed some weeks aco.
but it was hoped that this was only a
case of -spite, and not part of an organ
ized effort to drive the sheep from the
Great Loss. Last Xcarv
It will -bo remembered that last year
one man was killed and 6000 head of sheep,
valued at $20,000. were shot down or scat
tered in the mountains beyond redemption
by what appears to have been an organ
ized hand of sheepshooters. The counties
of Crook, Lake, Grant and Klamath were
last year evidently in the hands of an
organization that had planned a campaign
of terror and destruction.
"Creed" Conn, a well-known and highly
respected merchant of Silver Lake, was
known to have had definite information
that would have lead to the exposure and
probable punishment of the participators
in one of these outrages. Conn was shot
down on the outskirts of Silver Lake
March 4, 1904. Snow covered the body
until April 21.
Although the Governor has offered a
large reward for the murderers of Conn,
no one has had the temerity to come for
ward and claim It, for such information
would cost him his lire.
Killing or Thoroughbreds.
In the killing of a band of 1000 thoroughbreds-
belonging to Morrow & Keenan, of
Willow Creek, August 19, ISOi, a dozen
' men with blackened faces took part The
slayers knelt on-the ground, so that shots
from their S0:30s would pass through
more than one sheep's body at a time and
save the ammunition. One of the mem
bers of the gang openly boasted after
ward of the crime and wound up with the
"You're d d right, that sheepman will
never get within miles of our range again,
that's a cinch."

FORCE GOES AFTER A COACH
University of California Needs Man
in 190 G Team.
SAN FRANCISCO, April 22.-(SpeciaD-Captain
J. A. Force, of the University of
California football team, left today for
the East, his object being to make ar
rangements for a football coach to come
to California and train the 'varsity eleven
of 190S. Now, that the two universities
have voted to abolish the graduate coach
rule, the Berkeley men will make a des
perate effort to pull their football for
tunes out of the mire, and they intend to
find the best man available to lead them
through the next season.
Force goes East as the representative of
the executive committee pf the Associated
Students, and his choice will probably be
ratified by the committee when he returns
in a few weeks.
California has hoped to secure the serv
ices of Richard Smith, of Oregon, Colum
bia's former captain and fullback, and an
AU-American man, but his alma mater
wants his services, and ho will probablv
not find it possible to accept the offer to
come to Berkeley.
Several prominent Easten gridiron stars
are under consideration, and the selection
will probably be confined to these.

The Bteam schooner Sea Foam has start

One Instance in Which Oregon 3Iay
Profit by Russian Victory.
The British steamship Sandhurst left
down the river at i o'clock- yesterday
morning, reached Astoria at 2 P. M. and
two hours later croiued outbound for
Tsingtau. With her departure the busi
ness of supplying North Asiatic ports with
Oregon hay comes to an end. unless Ro
jesivensky succeeds in putting Togo out
Three big cargoes of hay and oats have
been forwarded from this Coast to the
Shantung peninsula In the past six
weeks. These cargoes were supplied by
ine Albers Bros. Milling Company, of this
city. The business was new and It was
thought It would be permanent, but de
velopments In the Far East put a new
complexion on the face of things and the
deal came to a close. Confirmation of
the common rumors that the forage was
intended for the Russians was never
given, but a variety of circumstances
have convinced shipping men that It was
no other than Russian business. In the
first place, there Is no market in German
Chinese territory for such great quanti
ties of hay and oats as have been sent
there, and In the second place, It Is known
positively that two agents of the Russian
government were here and Inspected the
feed before it was shipped. They declared
It superior to any they could buy else
where, and were entirely satisfied with
Whether or not the steamers that have
sailed will attempt to run the Japanese
blockade Is not known, but It is more
than likely that they will sail for the
port for which they cleared, Tsingtau.
How the forage If Intended for the Rus
sianswill get to the front Is also a mys
tery here. ,
The value of the three cargoes shipped
by Albers Bros. Is about $175,000. The
Sandhurst's cargo amounted to 23,545
bales of hay and 23,650 sacks of oats. The
Ras Elba, which preceded her. carried 9SSS
bales of hay and 34,000 sacks of oats. The
Ivydene, which loaded all her freight at
Seattle, took out 26,082 oales of hay and
53,025 sacks of oats. The oats on the Has
Elba and the Sandhurst were loaded on
the Sound, the vessels afterward coming
here to finish. It was the intention of
the shippers to put all the cargoes aboard
nt Portland, but lack of warehouse room
here made It necessary to ship part of the
lot from Seattle.
Even if the shipments cannot be re
sumed at an early day. the fact remains
that Oregon hay has been Introduced in
the Orient and has created a market
that is bound to become important in
time to come. It Is stated that the busi
ness will be pushed to large proportions
if Vladivostok Is opened to American com
merce by the Russians. Should the Jap
anese remain masters there, they will
continue to purchase their forage sup-.
piles In California, as they have in the
past. In this respect, at least, the inter
est of Oregon farmers and hay-raisers
would be promoted by a Russian victory
In Oriental waters.
