Hiram Maxim, the scientist and
electrician, says it is a mistake to
HU)xso that the discharge of a
rillo loaded with smokeless jwwder
is noiseless. There is, says he, no
such thing as noiseless gunpowder.
Tho rojwirt from a discharge of
smokeless jiowder is much sharper

Secretary Tracy has mid in an

thu tirst day of tho session, or as
soon thereafter ai possible, 1 shall
reintroduce my amendment and
have it referreil to tho committee
on privileges and election." The
senator made an exhaustive speech
during last congress upon popular

willing to prepare another if it i

An anarchist meeting in Chicago
was effectually quelled by t lie
police last Thursday evening, and

no ono was killed, or seriously in

that tho United States is a free
country, but freedom does not sig
nify n right in every one to act or
even talk as he thinks in harmony
with his conscience. In monarch'

upon individual sjicoch, and to in

THE HEPPNER WAREHOUSE
Has been enlarged to accommodate
the increasing business. The wools
of this section which accumulate at
Heppner, attract all the leading
Western buyers to that point, and
make it the best market in which
the grower can dispose of his clip.
Last season over 1,000,000
pounds of wool was sold in Hep
pner at prices which averaged the
grower more clear money than was
! realized by sales of similar wools
j in other western markebsmore dis
tant from the manufacturing cen
ters ol the East.
Teamsters charges advanced on
written orders. Cash advanced on
wool in storage.
