While there is much discussion

is generally conceded that a disagree

been so conflicting that it will be a

his associates conspire together to

fact were the penalty in this case less
than death the state might win but

forestry service were better in the west
than he had expected to find them.
"The complaints from settlers," he

All the members of the party that
arrived today are members of the In
land waterways commission. They are
studying conditions of waterways in
the west. This commission was ap
pointed by President Roosvelt a year
ago and has for ita object the study of

fitted for navigable purposes. The care

taking up part of the time of the vari

said his only object in coming to Port

party was because he had more work

consultation with forest supervisors
going over the conditions in Oregon. 1

II SENDS HIS

Nag and Sells It
George Marshal, an Indian living on
the Umatilla reservation, pleaded guilty
this morning before Judge Wolverton
in the United . States district court to
stealing his son's horse and was sent to
the county Jail for six months.
Marshal stole a horse once before
from his son, Harry, and was warned
the next offense would result In the ar
rest of the wayward parent. The
temptation of whiskey beset the path of
the errant father, however, and he pur
loined the second steed, on which he
rode to Pendleton one Saturday night
He sold the animal end proceeded to Im
bibe on the proceeds of the sale. He
imbibed too much and was arrested.
The next day Harry looked for his
horse and learned his father was in
jail. He immediately arrived at the con
clusion that his father had stolen the
horse and got drunk on the money. . His
conclusion proved correct and he swore
out a warrant before the United States
commissioner for his arrest.

Posey betrayed Mrs. Bowie's daughter,

Washington. D. C July 12. President
Roosevelt is considering the advisability'
Of making a recommendation to the next
congress on the railroad question that
will excite general comment and atten

that the government become a small
stock holder In some of the large rail
roads of the countrv. with a view to
having a representative placed on each
board of directors. By this process tho
government would become thoroughly
inrormea as to the inside facta or every

If made at all the recommendation
of the president will be that the con
gress provide an aDoroDrlation for the

It was decided today that hostilities
may immediately follow the declara
tion of war by one nation against an
other. The Dutch proposition to require
an interval of 24 hours between the
declaration and hostilities was, voted
down by the committee. It is probable
that thep revelling war rules will-be
changed to require a declaration' of war
before hostilities opened. Japan created
a sensation when M. Taudiukl emphati
cally favored the French proposition re-
?ulrlng a formal declaration of war be
ore hostilities opened. In the recent
war Japan blew up s Russian, warship
without a formal declaration. i.n..
