the defense, Peter Breen of Butte.
Montana can scarcely do anything other
than make matter worse. . Ha is being
paid by the Butte Miners' union and it
la aald that he was sent for to recon

fense. - But Mr. Breen hasnot borne any
great reputation- for reconciliation. He
ia a fighting Irishman all over. Florid,
nuggetty and restless he sat In court
today when It waa being adjourned
until 11 o'clock on Monday, looking as
though he wanted to Jump into tha fray
and show the rest of them the 'only
real . way to light thle case. He la tha

Then again Haywood has been taking
a course in law on the "correspondence"

that 'IA man w-o 1 hi own lawyer
haa a fool for a client' ao that taking
on ining wun anothar It is easy enough
to understand Haywood's temporary col
lapse., c - r ,, -. ., .,;,. .
Fifteen lawyers contending for tha de
fensa of a man -who is himself "a aort
of a lawyer," would be excellent ma
terial for a farce comedy but It la con

They are estimable gentlemen and

He need . Just . now "saving from hla

aa many or them. There la no shadow
of doubt at all but that ha will get an
abaolutely fair trial.. The court haa al
lowed the defense the widest liberty.
Tha people of the city sbow the great-

The Oregon A Washington Lumber
Manufacturers' association haa filed lta

pularly known aa the "Portland Gate

The cave will be called for" trial in
Washington on June 11. The Washing

and the Oregon association will be rep
reaented by Mr. Buchner, Mr. Dixon and
other members, and by 3. N. Teal as
counsel. .'. 1-'v--. ' ;'-;'' ;'-'''
.Briefly, it is a suit brought by the
Washington lumber associations not
only to put in the same rate on lumbrt
from Sound points, via - Portland to
point In Idaho, Utah, Wyoming, Colo
rado, Kansas and Nebraska aa : from
Oregon points, but ru compel the Oregon
Railroad & Navigation company, , the
Oregon & California Railroad, company
and j their connection to;,-j establish
through routes an Joint Tas with the
northern roads, aa well a tofumlsh
equipment for the Washington products..
The Oregon lumbermen object to thl
being done on several grounds. They,
assert tha congestion on the Oregon
road 1 wqrse now than on the north
ern roada, that they are getting less
cars than their northern neighbors, that
they have a greater stock of lumber on
hand, and to turn a4 great flood of
freight this way when the roads can't
handlathe local offerings in the terri-f
tory they were built to serve would b
not only, folly, but unjuat to the Ore
gon mlllsv- . i
, - For more than a year there has been
both car ahortage and congestion, and
a the northern: roada are now furnish
ing all the car the;- have,: of which
Oregon get none, the only possible re
ault if anything' . were accomnlished.
would be ta take car Which ought to
be m ust here, and for which there la
an enormous demand, and give them to
Washington mill, who are now getting
more man tne muis or m state.
Beside this, all the Washington mills
can now reach thl territory by the
northern roads, aiid at the same rate
paldv from Oregon.' But, they are pot
aattafied with this, but want to get still
another outlet, without any regard aa
to tne errect on their neighbors.
It is apparent the disadvantage ' the
Oregon mills will labor under It. this
should be done. It would not only af
reet mem, nut a:i business interests, a
lumbering is one of our state's greatest
Industries. Inatwd r of lea car, wa
want more. :hfi- f-; :-.'U:., -;-; ..;'-; .
All the railroads directly concerned
are against the proposed acbeme, and It
will be fought to a finish. In view of
the situation respecting lack of - ears
and other facilities in fhis state and the
utter inability of the roads to handle
the local traffic it is not a matter for
surprise that not. only the lumbermen
but all shippers view with alarm this
attempt to still further aggravate what
is now a bad situation. .

HATFIELD AT WORK.
From Two Towers He Vibrates Air
'v and Draws Clouds,: l,: .
; (Special Dtapateh te The looratt)
" Wasco. Or., June 1. Hatfield, the
celebrated rainmaker from Loa Angeles,
arrived In Sherman county May SB and
Immediately proceeded to "And- a high
elevation. He selected a point on Gor
don ridara and erected two ' towers 25
feet high. These are built of common
lumber, the corner pieces being by 4
timbers, braced with J by 4 stuff. About
live feet from the top of the towers are
temoorary floors surrounded ,wlth can
vas walls, which reach to the top. The
tops are ?ptlrely exposed. . Within these
lnclosures are conceaiea Hameias mo
dus operandL His apparatus partially
consists of electrical contrivances and
225 trays containing ehemlcala. The
former are In constant motion, throw
ing out vibrations Into the atmosphere.
These vibrations attract the . clouds
from a distance of 300 miles. When
condensed' these precipitate rain. The
area over which the storm continues
ana its duration depend upon the air
currents and their prevailing direction.
After active operations are begun' it la
usually from 24 to 4 S hours, and never
mora tnan nve days, before rain falls.
Hatfield is a very pleaaant and Inter
esting young man, and although no vis
itors are admitted to his towers or al
lowed to pry into the secrets of his
wonderful discovery, he very graciously
receives them and .is very willing to ex
plain and give Information. He has de
voted nine years to the study and de
velopment or his present methods. His
nrst experiment was conducted at St
Helena, California,, and was successful.
as were 42 others following, he claims.
The work of the young scientist is
attracting world-wide attention. Last
year he was sent for by the , Alaska
miners, there being a scarcity of water
for sluicing. , He came 4o ' Sherman
county under contract, guaranteeing to
produce six lnche of rain between May
28 and July 25. For seven years past
statistics show that the maximum rain
fall during this period haa been less
tnan on inch. '
All Sherman county Is watching the
experiment, - a a copious rainfall will
assure abundant crops and double the
