EUGENE, Or, June 8. (Special.)
William Landees, foreman of the Lane
County grand Jury, that Tuesday voted
an indictment for manslaughter against
Dr. John W. Harris, pioneer and prom
inent physician, whose body was found

WALLA WALLA, Wash . June 8.
Special.) "A grave situation Is brought
to a head by the high-handed action of
the authorities here," declared George
P. Hampton, director of the National
Farmers' headquarters at Washington,
D. C. in expressing resentment at the
action of the citizens in barring the
grangers from tne high school. "The
Administration is tired of having local
organizations take it upon themselves
to decide questions of loyally or disloyalty.-'
Hampton asserted that he is
a personal friend of the President.
Most of the grangers left Walla
Walla last night and the remainder
went today. Indications are that a bit
ter fight will be carried into all the
subordinate granges of the state.
Hampton, who took over the running
of affairs after the trouble Thursday
night when grangers were ejected from
the High School, put Grange Master
William Bouck into the background and
did the talking. He will visit' most of
the subordinate granges in the next
few weeks.-. The 75 so-called loyal
grangers, those who repudiated the
Non-Partisan League, have agreed to
stay in the organization and will carry
their fight to the locals, in an effort to
weed out the Non-Partisan sentiment.
His death is supposed to have resulted
from a mental and physical collapse,
following the action of the grand jury,
No inquest was held. Mr. Landees says
that he makes his statement in justice
to Dr. Harris.
In part, it is as follows:
"Even though the grand jury heard
only the testimony that was offered
on behalf of the prosecution and as
foreman I was denied the privilege of
calling other witnesses than those who
were brought before us. enough came
out to convince me that the charge was

Use Cocoanut Oil
for Washing Hair
If you want to keep your hair in good
condition, be careful what you wash it
Most soaps and prepared shampoos
contain too much alkali. This dries the
scalp, makes the hair brittle and is very
harmful. Just plain mulsified cocoanu
oil (which is pure and entirely grease
less) is much better than the most ex
pensive soap or anything- else you can
use for shampooing, as this can't pos
Bibly injure the hair.
Simply moisten your hair with water
and rub it in. One or two teaspoonfuls
will make an abundance of rich, creamy
lather, and cleanses the hair and scalp
thoroughly. The lather rinses out easily.
