Pendleton E O: Saturday, at The
Dalles, Oeo A Darscy and Edward V
Allen, claiming to bo represcnatives of
the Field Columbian Museum of Chi
cago, were arrested ou (lie charge of
robbing (he Indian graves ou Meuia-'
leuso Island, in the Columbia river,
near that place. At their trial they
set up (he plea thut they were working
solely In the Interest of science. This
brought about their releaso and Ihe t!0
Indian skulls aud other relics of the
hurrying ground iu their possession
were returned b the sacred resting
place of the Indian dead.
(t Is stated that ludluu skul's com
mand a price of $10 each In Eastern
museums, hence the 82 which these
gentlemen gathered up represented a
cash value of $820. This would lead one
to believe, says Tho Dulles Times
Mountaineer, that these Innocent
"professort" had soma other motive In
view than that of collecting relics for
aclentillo purposes. This vandalism
was ou a little too extended a scale to
admit of even a liberal construction
being placed upon their motives.
