priated for that purpose at the last ses
sion. West V ast Money Back.
The Governor sprang a surprise on
the board by announcing that
since the appropriation had been ex
hausted he had spent $1500 personally
In the conduct of the work, and intro
ducing a resolution providing that a
deficiency be created to reimburse him.
This was denied and then a motion
was made that the board recommend
that the next Legislature make an ap
propriation reimbursing the Governor.
Treasurer Kay Insisted that the Gov
ernor had spent the money without
warrant of law. and If the Board cre
"ated a deficiency to reimburse him It
would be violating the law. He con
" tended that the reimbursing of the Gov
ernor would virtually be creating a
deficiency, despite the fact that the
money had been spent in advance with
out authorization of fhe Board. Mr.
Kay also declared he would not be a
party to asking the Legislature to make
an appropriation to reimburse the Gov
ernor for money which he believed was
spent in violation of the law.
' Executive Tell of Plot.
President of the Senate Malarkey
and Speaker of the House McArthur
said that while they had no doubt the
money had been properly spent they
wished time in which to examine the
vouchers and receipts. Mr. Malarkey
Insisted that the proposition lie on
the table until the next meeting of the
board. After much wrangling the mo
tion carried, whereupon the Governor
spoke most dramatically of what ho
bad done since his inauguration and
bow he had been harassed.
Governor West charged that an at
tempt had been made in connection
with vouchers relating to his moral
crusade, to collect evidence on which
to send him to prison. He did not
mention the names of those implicated
Jn the alleged plot, and other members
of the board told the Governor he
was laboring under a delusion.
Governor to Quit Loser.
Continuing, Mr. West said in part:

money than I had when I came in. I

Attracted by Carcass of Whale Fish

Several Bullets Take Effect.
NEWPORT. Or.. Sept. 27. While out
halibut fishing yesterday Captain Cor
ner, of the Ollie S. captured a 14-foot
man-eating shark.
About five miles west of Taqulna
Heads the carcass of a large whale was
sighted and Captain earner went to tow
It close to the entrance to the harbor
as an attraction for excursion parties.
Running down near the huge carcass,
Carner and some of his crew went
alongside with a dory and found the
water around it swarming with sharks.
One immense shark rushed between
the whale and the dory and seized great
mouthfuls of the riesh. While it was

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27. According
to estimates today by Treasury experts,
425,000 American residents must report
to the Income Tax Collector next Spring
exactly how much they owe the Gov
eminent under the new income tax law.
The tariff bill, in which the law is
embodied, will not be signed until next
week, and the first returns do not
have to be made to the Internal Rev
enue Collectors before March 1, 1914.
When the returns are made they will
cover the incomes of citizens from
March 1, 1913, to December 31, and the
first payment of tax will be for money
received during this period.
Details Mast Be Reported.
Every single person (citizen or for
eigner) whose annual income exceeds
13000 and every married person with
an Income above $4000 is expected to
report his or her receipts in detail
to the Government agents March l oi
each year. The estimate completed to
Hav indicates that the Income tax will
produce $82,298,000 from the . 425,000
persons taxed. To this will be aaaea
the $35,000,000 or more produced by
the present corporation tax. which Is

"WALLA WALLA, Wash., Sept. 27.
(Special.) The final day of Walla Wal
la Frontier Days came to a close as the
sun sank in the west tonight, with 23,
000 people shouting themselves hoarse
to acclaim a new world's champion
bronco buster, Bob Gavin, Chief of Po
lice of Caldwell. Idaho. Had the mat
ter been left to the audience the prize
would have hung in the balance be
tween Gavin and John Spain, but the
judges were better prepared to see the
intricacies of the riding than the audi
ence, so no douDt their verdict was fair.
What wonderful riding there was in
the finals of that event, or rather the
semi-finals! There were ten singled
out by the judges for the day's trials
and all but one or two drew horses that
were really buckers. Not a man was
thrown, not a man "pulled leather," not
a man showed the least streak of yel
low. Prise Is $500 and 9750 Saddle.
After the ten had ridden the Judges
selected John Spain. Bob Gavin, Tex
McLeod and Red Parker to see which
should get the first, second and third
prizes. As said. Bob Cavin won the
coveted prize, which carried with the
championship $500 in cash and a won
derful saddle, valued at $750. Spain
got JJ50 as the second prize.
It is doubtful if any wild west show
ever staged a greater show than that
given here today Not only the quality
of the sport but the excellent manage
ment called forth the encomiums of all
with whom I fell in contact
In a former dispatch it was mentioned
that great credit should be given Presi
dent Brents and Secretary Johnson.
Without detracting or retracting it can
be said that for the staging and execu
tion of the events and for arranging
for the male and female participants
and the great array of cattle and
horses, great credit, in fact, the sole
credit, is due to George and Tom Drum-
heller, who handled the amusement end
of the affair.
23,000 See Final Day.
In estimating the number present to
day at 23,000 I think the figures are
fair. I took pains to pass around
through the stands and count the rows
of seats and the number In each row.
The figures are not a mere guess. Some
will undoubtedly say there were 30.00C
and others will place the number below
20,000, but my figures are fair.
Let it be remembered, in figuring on
the attendance, that this was an ex-
Derlmental show, that not a special
train was run into the town during
the week. The railroads did not great
ly boost the show. It was a new venture
and the railway officials were skepti
cal as to the results, which was per
fectly natural and proper.
Another year the railway officials
will undoubtedly take pleasure in
giving the show all the assistance
possible. The trip from Portland,
especially over the North Bank road, is
a pleasurable one even at night In the
daytime the road up the north bank

There is no possibility of beef prices

The supply in this country is not
available and cannot be made so on
short notice. As for bringing in cattla
from Australia or Argentina to make
up the shortage in the United State, It
is a question whether a large enough
supply is obtainable in those countries,
and even if such were the case Aus
tralia and Argentina prices would nat
urally advance because of the enlarged
demand, and all prices would again
be on a parity.
Demand Exceeds Supply.
Conditions are the same in the Pa-
cific Northwest as in other parts of the
country. The demand is greater than
the supply, and prices ure going up
steadily. Prime beef steers in the local
market are worth 8 cents a pound as
against 7Vi cents at this time last year
and 6V4 cents two years ago.' Five or
six years ago cattle were selling at
cents, so there has been a gain
of almost 100 per cent in prices In that

Packers Declnred Helplras.
"The packers cannot be blamed for
the present conditions, as they are en

local packer yesterday. "They are mora
Interested In cheap cattle than in high
priced stuff. They have twice as much
oney invested in cattle now as they
had a few years ago. There is also
a greater shrinkage in high cost beef
than in the low-priced article. 1' ur
thermore, it is easier to do business
when prices are low than when they
are high.
Radical Action May Follow.
"Some efforts are beinpf made now
to check the rise by promoting the
cattle-raising industry, but It will take
a long time. It may require radical
action by those In authority, such as
prohibiting the killing of calves ana
females under a certain age, and sim
ilar methods.
"This is a world-wide question and
we cannot hope to get entire relief
from abroad. There is much talk of
bringing large quantities of Australian
beef to America. This may check the

only for a short time, as prices in
the two countries are bound to be
