"What we want Is a well-regulated

Medford.Ore., Sept. 25. Two do
Anjou pear trees on the old Solls3
place, on Griffin creek, which made
a passing record two years ago by
producing something like ?S0 worth
of fruit for the tenant now on tho
place, this year eclipsed all records
by yielding no less than 67 packed
boxes of pears, which sold to a local
dealer for $2 per box, making a rec
ord of ?134 from a single crop from
two trees. The joke of it Is that a
little manipulation to give tho
grower the benefit of the actual
value of tho fruit would have
doubled the price. No fruitman lu

for choice do Anjou pears. This will
attract no little attention to tho sec

Silverton, Or., Sept. 25. The peo

turmoil for several days, with Inci
dent animosity engendered, occa
sioned by tho alleged violation of the
Sunday closing ordinance by C. N.
Matlock, a saloonkeeper of this city.
Tho conditions seemed to have
reached the limit Monday evening,
when the city council voted not to
prosecute the case pending and to
sustain the marshal in his refusal to
serve the warrant which had been
placed In his hands. Tho hostility
between tho temperance and saloon
elements is apparently irreconcilable.
It Is understood that the matter will
be taken up before the district at

It seems the marshal raided Mat
lock's saloon a few weeks ago and
found the barkeeper disposing of
liquor. Matlock was requested to
appear before the municipal judge
i.ionday morning following, but for
some reason unknown he failed to
appear. A warrant was later Issued
for his arrest and placed In the
hands of the marshal, but this ho
failed to serve and indignation pre
vailed among tho temperance people.
It Is understood that an effort will
bo made to havo the marshal arrest

one of considerable Importance.
