The Carnival Program f of the WeekThe Roman Stsdlum
and Other Features.
Tho queen's committee, comprised of
seven of Rosoburg's most prominent
young men, have selected Miss Willetha
Reed to act as queen of tho Roseburg
carnival, commencing Monday, June
22, and lasting six days.
A more beautiful or gracious queen
could not havo been selected from
among all of Rosoburg's popular and
beautiful young ladies, and wo are
proud to bo among tho loyal subjects
that will pay homago to Queen Willetha
1st during tho carnival.
Miss Reed has selected the following
young ladies to act as hor maids of Jion-,

Another Threatened Strike.
San Jose, Calif., is probably on the
eve of the greatest labor agitation it
has ever known. It will be precipitated
by the grocers' teamsters' union, which
will go on a strike tomorrow morning un
less its demands arc complied with
i lie drivers ask the employers to sign
a wage scale of $40 a month for driver
of one-horse wacons and 50 a month
for drivers of two horses. Tho employ
ers woukl willingly pay the slight in
crease, bat they are bound by the action
of the Merchants' Association, to which
most of them belong, not to sign any
agreement with any union, and there
fore they refuse to sign the wage scale.
Tho Federated Trades Council has in
dorsed tho demand of the drivers
union, and there is good reason to fear
that if the merchants do not recede
from the position they have taken, a
great sympathetic strike of all trades af
filiated with the council which are di
rectly interested, will bo ot once or
dered. Tho laundry workers' strike has
also been indorsed by tho Council.
Leper Divorce and Jlarriage.
As a result of recommendations by
the United States Committee, which
visited Honolulu last fall, and local agi
tation, the Board of Health is trying to
arrange for about GO divorces at the
leper settlement on Molokai, and tho
assistance of the Attorney-General lias
been invoked. The Legislature had be
fore it a law to provide for divorces free
of cost for lepers, but it failed to pass,
and tho boarJ will undertake to act and
ask tho courts to remit costs. The rea
son for securing divorces is to permit
the parties in tho settlement to marry
again, in all the cases under considera
tion tho husband or wife is at the set
tlement, while tho other party is away.
The separations have resulted in condi
tions at tho settlement which the Sen
ate Commission strongly condemned.
and it is tho opinion of many that the
moral situation would bo greatly im
proved if the lepers were free to inter
marry at Molokai. Tho plan has
aroused some local opposition, chiefly of
a religious nature.

Mink, age 21, shot Newton W. Harris,
and then shot his own stepmother.
Newton was shot in his bam yard while

armed posses are pursuing Mink for a
number of hours, and his death alone
will satisfy tho infuriated citizens. The
trouble is said to havo been the out
growth of Harris' refusal of the hand of

Mink, and of an alleged long-standing
enmity between tho slayer and his step
mother. Appeal for aid has been made for the
