The East Oregonian of Monday says:
The Pendleton Roller Mills, 500 "bar-j
rels capacity, owned by W. S. Byers, are I
a thing of the past.
No more, unless the mills are re-built,
will Pendleton people congratulate !
themselves upon the success and mugni-
tude of such an industry in their midst. !
No more will admiring reporters speak
of the big ehioments made to China,
Japan, Australia and South America.
No more will the handsome fac simile of
the premium ribbon won by "Byers
Best" at the World's Fair, adorn the
many sacks of this splendid flour turned
out at the mill.
All that remains of tbe Pehdleon
Roller Mills is a heap of ashes, a deso
late pile of smoking ruins, an immense i
heap of burned wheat, vast quantities!
of broken stone. When one turns his
face to the east from the business center
tbe sight of a large building no longer
greets his eyes. The musical hum of
the mill, telling of industry and pros
perity and employment for many people,
no longer pleases his ears. Lost are
these things through the agency of that
awful demon of destruction, fire spar
ing higher, higher, in a frenzy of desire,
to reach the moon.
Fearful was this fire in its intensity
and destruction. Someone said that it
did more damage than all the fires of
the past together in Pendleton, and tbe
remark does not fall far short of the
truth. It destroyed an . enterprise that
was the. pride of this city and of large
benefit. It consumed property va'ued
at fully $150,000 and protected by only
$50,000 insurance. It blaeted at a blow
the labor of a man who has worked for
years to build it up, and whose life and
energy were centered in its success.
There is no one in the community, in
the county, in Eastern Oregon, but who
will sympathize with W. S. Byers and
his business daughter, Sophia.
The fire started at 3:30 o'clock this
morning, and it was 5 o'clock before the
flames were under reasonable control.
To the fact that there was no bisk wind
blowing may be ascribed tbe fortunate
circumstance that the fire was confined
to the mill and warehouses. The court
house, woolen and scouring mill's, Byers'
residence, and other property near,
were seriously threatened.
The mill was a modern and expensive
oi)e, and cost in the neighborhood of
If 50,000 all told. Its present worth was

praise. The manufacturers of this Range pledge them
selves that all parts of the MAJESTIC except the firebox
and the new series Nos. 201 to 212, are made of steel and mal
leable iron, and purchasers are assured that it is as good and
as honest as skilled labor and money can produce. If tbe parts
now in malleable iron were (as in other so-called steel ranges)
made of cast iron, the price could be greatly reduced ; but the
MAJESTIC is not made with a, view to furnishing extra
parts for repairs. - '

the regular annual meeting of the Agri
cultural Association was to be abandoned
and The Dalles was to pass by the
regular fall fair. Sunday Mr. McAllister
went to Pendleton and completed ar
rangements with the Secretary J. O.
Mack, whioh permitted the matter to go
on. It required considerable work here
also, as the money for the purses had to
be raised and other preliminary matters
attended to. All tbe tangles here have
been straightened out and the fair will

Stoves and Sunfthine.
Eugene Field after visiting Europe,
said that the one thing he missed most
in his travels was the great American
stove. The first thing he did when he
got home was to write a poem, entitled
"Stoves and Sunshine," in which he
paid his respects to the stovelees, cheer
less, shivering countries he had visited.
In the second verse, which we print
herewith, it will be seen that the poet
made an inexcusable mistake by writing
" Yanjiee" instead of Garland. Read
tbe verse and see, and then call on
Maier & Benton and see the stoves.
