did, he had a hilarious time. Wilson
came into police court to plead guilty
to speeding, but his conscience was
badly troubled by a warning Judge
Rossman had given him a month ago
during a hearing in which Wilson was
charged with appropriating an auto
mobile to his own use. At that time
leniency was extended by the court
with the understanding that Wilson was
to stay out of the city for six months.
I was just following Judge Ross-
man s advice. V llson said. "He told
me If I wanted to run a car I should
wait until I could get one myself. I
just came to town to purchase the ma
chine and was arrested as I was driv
ing back out of the city. It is the only
time I've been in Portland in a month."
Judge Ieich handed him a $5 fine.
and Wilson expressed his thankfulness
that Judge Rossman was on a vacation.
Other alleged speeders who were
fined yesterday were as follows: E. H.

Stockmen of the south end of Uma

years, have driven their cattle out for
the winter, will remain in the hills this
season ,it is- said here. Ever since the
heavy winter three years ago this sec
tion of the country, iike most others,
has been short of hay. The stockmen
were forced to ship their stock out and
buy hay at high prices.
After trying this fr three seasons,
the stockwien have determined to cut
down their herds to the size of their
hay stacks and stick it out. figuring
that they stand to lose either way till
they can accumulate syfficient hay to
carry them over and. they might as
well stay at home.
More cattle than ever before at this
season of the year have been sold from
the Pilot Rock eectiun and more will
go out.'
