In filing the motion Ruef states that

Children Reach Safety.
Now York, March 7. A special call
was sent into fire headquarters from
the public school on One Hundred and
NinOi street, between Amsterdam ave
nue and Broadway.
The children were marched from the
schcol without panic or disorder. They
were assembled in the yard and Bent
home.- Parents who rushed to the
building were prevented by the police
from closing in the exits and tent away.
The fire was on the top floor of the
building, which is five stories high.
The 2,000 pupils in the building were
engaged in their morning singing exer
cise when the fire -gong rang and they
continued to sing "America ' as they
marched out of the bnilding. There
wa no sign of panic at any .time.
SECRETS OF TORPEDOES.
Company Says Employe
Stolen Brass Models.
New York, March 7. The E. W.
Bliss company, manufacturers of pro
jectiles, secured the arrest last night of
William Esser, a mechanic, of Brook
lyn, who, it is charged, has stolen the
brass models of the principal parts of
torpedoes now in process of secret man
ufacture for the government.
Detectives engaged on the case assert
that other arrests will be made of men
who will be charged with offering for
sale to other governments Becrets of
projectile manufacture. The, Federal
authorities would be interested in the
prosecution, it was said, though just
how was not made clear.
William Eeser was held in $1,000
bail when arraigned in court to lay.
No representative of the government
appeared againgst Esser.

Contend Low Lumber Rato Will
vent New Construction.
Washington, March 6. Argument of
the Pacific Coast lumber case was re
sumed before the Interstate Commerce
commission yesterday. J. D. Kerr,
representing the Hill roads, frankly
stated that the Northern Pacific and
Great Northern have reached their ca
pacity for handling traffic. He said as
the development of the Northwest con
tinued, traffic would grow. Therefore
existing roads must increase their ca
pacity or new roads must be built, but
he declared no new roads would be
built to haul lumber unless they had a
guarantee of a rate that would be re
munerative. If the old non-compen
satory lumber rato is continued in
effect, money cannot be procured and
railroad building will stop, he said.
Mr. Kerr denied that the lumber
men would be injured by an increase.
They wonld still make a big profit, he
declared. The Booth-Kelly company
in Oregon, which is not operated under
favorable conditions, could, on the
basis of an advanced rate, still earn 31
per cent annually on ite investment.
Some companies could make larger
profits, others not so much. Relative
to the arguments that lumber cannot
move into competitive territory under
an advanced rate,Mr. Kerr showed that
the St. Paul & Tacoma Lumber com
pany, of Tacoma, paid 55 cents into
this district for years and made good
profits. This is higher than the pro
posed new rate.

is thought that tho lodge will widen

owners of tho claim aro C. 0. Cox and
Frank Keating, of this city, and M. T.

great copper values, and mining circles

The following statement suggests mo
tives stronger than "extravagance:"
The enrollment has increased but 23

of 300 per cent is requested; that tables
submitted by alumni are "pretended"

Has Shearing Record.
Pendleton A. T. Hill, who broke
the world's sheep shearing record at
Beardsley, Arizona, is coming to Uma
tilla and Morrcw counties to shear this
spring. He will join a shearing crew
at Heppner about March 15. Hill
sheared 325 sheep in nine hours at
Beardsley, breaking the former record
of 310 held by Jack Wyr.n, of Now
Mexico. The crew of 30 men in which
Hill worked on the record breaking day
sheared 6,572 head in nine hours.

Southwest and it is expected that Hill
will beat his Arizona record with the
Market Day Not Success.
La Grande La Grande's lirut mar
ket day was not quite tho success that
was anticipated, at least from the
standpoint of thoso who brought live
stock to bo auctioned. Prices offered
in most caseswero so low that the
owners "preferred to withdraw their
property from sale. But the merchants
of the city mado every effort, and wero
eminently successful, to give the visit
ing farmers much more than the usual
value for their money. Hargaitis
abounded in all tho mercantile estab
lishments. Hundreds of countiy peo
ple thronged tho streets.
Pendleton Wants Demonstration.
Pendleton The diversified farming
plan of the O. R. & N. officials haB met
with the approval of tho Commercial
association, which has appointed a
committee to confer with the officials

Pendleton The salo of the Cooley

Wholesale Lumber Dealers Approve
Policy of Government.
Washington, March 6. The conclud
ing ieature ol the lotti annual conven
tion of the National Wholesale Lumber
Dealers' association was a banquet at
the New Willard last night.
The principal topic of discussion yes
terday was forest preservation. The
report of the committee on forestry de
clared that the lumber dealers realize
the inevitable sbprtage in the timber
supply which must be felt in the very
near futuro and are doing more prob
ably than any other agency to promote
the cause of forestry. The report de
clares that with all the agencies at
work they are hopeful 'that our forests
will etill be preserved. Repeal of the
homestead law as applied to timber
lands is advocated, but the general for
est reeerve policy of the government is
Miners on Non-union Basis.
Seattle, Wash., March 6. A cable
dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer from
Fairbanks, Alaska, say: Nineteen
operators on Vault creek, formerly
operating eight hours and paying $5
resolved to go on a ten-hour $5 basis on
March 10, and havo eo notified their
employes. Many men aro arriving
daily over the trail and are being sent
out to work in the mines. More men j
are working on the nonunion basis than
ever, many union operators having
joined the Mineowner' association and
prospects are bright for a banner Beason.
Would Classify Banks.
San Francisco, March 0. Represent
atives of the San Francisco Saving?
Bank association appeared before the
special legislative committee on bank
ing laws today in order to make re
commendations for the amendment of
the existing laws. The chief recom
mendation was that laws bo passed
separating tho three different kinds of
banking known as trust business, com
mercial business and savings deposits,
so they can be better regulated.
Star Route Beats Train.
The Dalles According to E. L. Bolt
on, of Kingsjey, the people of that sec
tion of Wasco county1 are dissatisfied
with their present mail service. Tho
mail from The Dalles for that region
goes as far as Dufur by train. A peti
tion is being circulated asking that the
mail be taken from the Great Southern
and carried by wagon from The Dalles
to Dufur and then on to Kingsley, Tygh
valley and Wapinita. This mothod
would deliver the mail at Kingsloy al
most 24 hours earlier than according to
the present method.
Want Railroad Extended. '
Condon The farmers of the South
ern part of Gilliam courfty are uniting
in an effort to secure the extension of
the Arlington-Ondon branch of the O.
R. & N. as far south as the Buckhorn
country, a distance of at least 15 miles
from Condon. The reason ie that much
time ifl wasted every fall and winter in
hauling tho Buckhorn grain crop to
market, us it takes one day for the
Buckhorn farmers to make ono trip to
the station and warehouses.
Report of Insane Asylum.
Salem Superintendent R. E. Leo,
Stelner, of the state insane asylum, in
his monthly report submitted to tho
governor states that the new wing that

be completed within 30 days. Ho also
reports that the now ward for the crim
