.U r?ruUr meeting" adopted , resolutions en
- matters of Importance to the grange
membership at large. This organisation
, Is composed of 11 granges In Linn
i county and three In Benton county.
. Ths council by resolution thanked the
press and people of eastern Oregon, and
specially Hudson Bay grange No. SL
for prompt and earnest support of the
movement lor invoking the referendum
of the University of Oregon opproprla
tlon of 126,000 annually. A similar

, Initiative Sill Wanted. "
It was further resolved that "ws urge
ur delegates to the state grange, whloh
convenes at Hood River on May 10, to
use every endeavor to assist In formu
lating an Initiative bill to regulate the
appropriations lor- ths Stats - normal
schools, the O. X. C and ths State
university, with , thV purpose of finally
settling these vexed questions snd to
stop ths present method of log rolling
ju our state legislature."
Ths enthusiasm regarding the matter
of scouring the necessary number of
electors to insure the final submission
of tne university of Oregon appropria
tion to ths people ran high, In view of
me indications that more than enough
signatures will be on file within the
time fixed by law. The workers Were
edmonished to put forth their best ef
forts so as to have as large a list of
petitioners as possible.
Tax Commission Proposed.
A resolution was passed in regard to
securing a more equitable tax law. The
council complains of the burden of taxa
tion and askSv that ths law be so
amended as to effect Its more equal dis
tribution. Ths council propones to have
Us delegation to the stats grange exert
, every effort to obtalr a definite expres
sion of that body. It asks that a special
commission of five members on assess
ment and. taxation shall take up the
problem of equalising the taxes, Its
. findings to bs submitted for discussion
4 snd review at the various Pomona
granges snr county councils during the
, year and Its final report to be mads at
the annual meeting of ths state grange
In 1808. , ,,...t. ,.
Ths Oranges' Baa) Position.
Feeling that their position In regard
to the university appropriation has been
misconstrued and that, an erroneous Im
pression prevaUs ,ln regard to their mo
tives and objects in promoting the. ao
ttve work of the referendum t resolution
explanatory was adopted as follows:;
"Resolved. That, a false Impression
having obtained in some quarters as to
--the grange's attitude toward, higher
educational institutions, ths counoil
moat emphatically protests against ths
idea given to the public by the friends
of . the university appropriation that we
are against higher education; we favor
such education, but hold that our public
schools ars of paramount Importance,
snd until appropriations ars given them
proportionate to those granted to the
higher educational Institutions we will
oppose giving such extravagant sums to
the latter." , ' , ':

R. 8. Henley, a veteran of the civil
war, appeared at the court house yes
terday afternoon and complained that
W. Graves, anotner veteran or tne
civil war, who lives at Union and Kll
llngsworth avenues, was Insape and
that , Graves . ssrvice for bis country
many years ago entitled him to be
oared for by the state at the Insane
asylum at Salem. . . f
Deputy Sheriff H.Bulger was given
a warrant with authority to bring Vet
eran Graves to the county Jail to "be
held for examination by the alienists.
When Bulger arrived at Graves' house
he found a feeble, childish old man, In
comfortable, little home, cared for
by ma wire and two daughters. . Ths
women protested vigorously when ths
aeputy sheriff announced the purpose
of his visit and declared that the old
man was neither Insane aor did hs
neea tne cars of ths state.
Bulge- left Graves at his horns and
returned io report that the old veteran
could harm no one and was bslng cared

ter , than the state oould do It . It Is
believed r that Henley's complaint
against uraves was inspired by a de
sire merely to see Ms old comrade get

New York, May 7. The-United States
Express company etocxnoiaers commit'
tee has Issued a circular In which It
takes issue with Senator Piatt, presl
dent of ths company, on his assertion
that the company cannot Increase Its
dividend rate, on account of restrictive
legislation in various states. The tock

mittee points out, receive 10 per cent
and upward. It is contended thst ths
company can well afford to pay 7 per
cent and that there., la no possibility
of such a rate inciting hostile legis

Indian Commissioner on His Way
to Oregon to Investigate
Reserve Scandal.
Inspector Davis Has Made Report of
Findings and Head of Department
Conies West to See the Conditions
for Himself.
rWaihlnrton Boreas of The Journal.)
Washington, D. C. May 7. Commls
sioner Leupp of the .Indian office has
gone westward, to remainor several
months, and to visit the many reserv
tlons of ths Indians and the schools
maintained by the government Mr.
Leupp undoubtedly wilt go to the Uma
tilla Indian reservation at Pendleton
and look personally Into the questions
which were raised there concerning ths
administration of Superintendent O. C,
Edwards. Inspector Davis has made his
report to ths commissioner, and the lat
ter has had It In his possession for sev
era! weeks. He haa never given out any
Information beyond this, and It Is the
opinion at the office here that during
his western tour he will take occasion to
see for himself what are the conditions
in Pendleton which were set forth In
Mr. Davis' report
Serious charges were mads against
Superintendent Edwards, and the Indian
department apparently purposes to go
into them thoroughly before making any
statement as to its findings.
(Journal Special Scrvtee.t
London; May 7. The farce or an
nouncing that Prince . Edward, the eld
est son of the Prince of Wales, has
passed his examination for the Osborne
Naval College and had acquitted him
self very well was solemnly gone
through recently.
As a matter of fact if he had not
been Prince Edward be would have
failed to en Oar, as he Is not so forward
In his books as his brother Henry. At
the me time he has already mastered
the 'art of being royal," and for a boy
of his age is extraordinarily tactful.
