TRY HERMANN IN QRECjON
Will Have to Answer Portland Indict
incuts First.
Washington, Nov. ,101 has
been decided by the govern
ment to try Congressman Bin
ger Hermann-first under the in
dictments brought against him
in Oregon, speciilo date
has been set for the trial, which
will take place in Portland, but
it is thought by Secretary
Hitchcock and District Attor
ney Francis J. Honey that the
trial will bo sot during the ear
ly part of December.
It was at first contemplated
to try Hermann in Washington
under the indictment found
against him alleging destruc
tion of government records. The
local district attorney, however,
has several cades on hand grow
ing out of the alleged frauds in
the postoflice, wnich have prec
edence, and must be heard be
fore Hermann's can be reached.
So it has been decided to try
fltMinann under the Oregon in
dictments first.
Attorney Henpy will leave
Washington the latter part of
the week for portjarid.
The three indictments pond
ing in this stajte are known re
spectjvely as the "Butte Creek
Caoe," the "Blue Mountain Con
spiracy" ana tne "11-7 Uase."
In the first named Congressman
Hermann was indicted jointly
with W. W. Stoiwer, Franklin
Pieico Mays, Edwin Mays, John
II. Hall, 0. E. Loomis, H. IT.
Hendricks and others, on the
charge of fencing government
lands. It is generally supposed
that the case will not be the
first one to be tried, though Dis
trict Attorney Heney has as yet
given no indication its to the or
der of trials.
The Blue Mountain caRe is
one of the most famous of all
the indictmonts returned in the
course of the Oregon laud fraud
investigations. Senator John
II. Mitchell, Congressman Her-
V W t
mann, uongressnan William
son, State senator jy. Jr. Mays,
Willard N. Jones and George
Sorenson weire indicted on the
charge of conspiring to defraud
the government of 200,000 acres
of land within the boundaries
of the Bine Mountain forest re
serve. Tne indictments alleged
that the fraud was to be accom
plished largely by means of
fraudulent purchases of state
school lands in Crook, Grant,
larnoy, Malheur, Baker, Union,
Umatilla nnd Wallowa counties,
such lands Ivinr within the
boundaries of the proposed re

SJuite an excitement was in
evidence Saturday evening, and
it was railroad talk. Upon the
arrival of the train some cross
eyed follow (we Would suggest)
made his way from the depot
up town with the news that a
private car had arrived with a
bunch of railway moguls who
wore on their way to Central
Oregon to build railroads. We
are not sure whether p.rine.ville
received the news or not, but it
is said the neonle of Madras
were out to see just which way
the cars were coming. After
things had quieted down some
what a reward was ofiere d for
the man who started the report,
for after a olose investigation
Mr. Jlarriman's private car prov
ed to be only a boxcar loaded
with the bridge gang.

arrangements to run a daily
auto between Redmond and
Prinoville. The three seated Olds
which he is using for his cross
country runs m,akes the trip
in an hour and forty minutes,
and this is the machine which
ho will put on the regular sched

now headed that way and an
auto line with quick service
would serve as a public as well.

Grass Valley Journal: It is

VV. H. Cook, J. G. Hardy and Jim
Maddron have been at Heisler during the
week cutting up feed for the horses at the
stage station. Forty-two head of horses
go in and out of the Heisler station each
day, and they consume a large quantity
of grain each month, they were using
Jack Hardy's chopping machino, which
will chop about 30 tons of grain in a day.
It cevtayily loos now as
though the Great Sonthern Rail
road will be the first to build
into Central Oregon and tap
the rich grain district of this
section of the state. The pres
ent terminus of the road is Dn
fur, but there has been no ces
sation in the activities of the
engineering department of the
road, and it is now announced
that grade stakes are being set
south of Dufur, and that the
new contract for 22 miles of con
strucon will be under wy as
soon as the cross-section stakes
are set.
President John Heimrich has
frequently declared that the
road would not stop at Dufur,
and there is every indication
that the program will be car
ried out just as announced by
him. On last Thursday, W. F.
Nelson, the vice-president of the
company and who had charge
of the construction work, loft
Portland with a corps of 12 men
who are going to the territory
south of Dufur to take up the
field work. A conference was
held at Tygh with a number of
land owners of that sectioh, and
the right of way for the road is
beiug obtained. In fact, it is
definitely stated by those in
authority that the right-of-way
for the greater portion of the
road has already been, sepured.
Engineers who have been over
the route which will probably
be taken by the Great Southern
say that an easy grade can be
had, and that the road will not
be expensive in building. The
grade down Warm Springs river
will be very light, and from the
mouth of Warm Springs river
on up the Deschutes to Willow
Creek and thence on up through
this wheat district an easy
grade without any heavy work
can be obtained.
