He Is Accused of Selling a Band of Horses at La Grande In Which There Were at Least Two Stolen Ones. The Blue Mountain Eagle says that Tim Townsend and W. J. Robinson, held under bonds under a charge of horse stealing, are und,er arrest on another charge of the samo nature, preferred by W. F. White, who makes the claim that he had two head of horses in the band the accused men sold at La Grande prior to their ar rest in Pendleton from which nlaoo ' they were taken to Canyon City for i rnkl. 1 a . . i " iuis luai case was 10 nave been tried last Monday before Judge Ilulison, but was postponed until next Monday when they will have a hearing. The Eagle states that it is not on the "inside" but it is intimated that some interesting developments will come to light before the cases against Robinson and Townsend are disposed of. Townsend, it will bo remembered by many people of Pendleton, was arrested here last winter on the charge of horse stealing preferred by stock men of Grant county. Ho was taken into custody by the Umatilla county officers and turned over to the constable from Monument, who start ed with his prisoner for Canyon City. Quite a little stir was occasioned here tho next day by the report that the officer had been overpowered by the irate stock men of the interior and prisoner lynched near Ukiah. This report, however, was untrue and Townsend reached his destination in safety. Hobinson was arrested about the samo time, and they were both held, being placed .under bonds, but they have not as yet been convicted of the charge. every particular and detail a good circus, and that is tho great Pan American Shows which is coming to Pendleton on Wednesday, April SO, in all its splendor, its unequalcd numbers and vast proportions.

Call all the others what you will; but when all iB said and told, and retold, there is a circus which is in Northern Pacific Lands. AH Northern Pacific railroad lands throughout the Northwest had been withdrawn from the market for tho purpose of releasing. It is believed that whan the prices are promulgated they will be from 50 to 200 per cent higher than formerly. While, tho lands belonging to tho company are not off the market in the sense that no sales' will be made, there is now no price list by which the local agents are governed and it is impossible for them to make, quotations without first wiring a query to tho Northern Pa cific land commissioner at Tacoma. It is thought two weeks will elapse before tho new prices are made public.

Commenting on the highway law of the Empire Stnti the New York Times in n recent Issue paid: The legislation heretofore enacted for the improvement of the roads of the state is good as fnr as It goes, but it Is not likely to go very far In tho lifetime of the youngest of our renders. It pro vides for state nld to towns that arc willing to contribute their part to bet ter roads built under tho direction of the state. Up to the present time wo believe that only 300 miles of tho fi.OOO in the slnte are bcnclltcd by this law.

At present each property owner Is re quired to pay his share of the amount voted for roads, but Is nt liberty to work out the tax at the rate of one day's labor for each dollar due by him. The work, whether voluutnry or hired, Is done when and where the path mas. Icr and the highway commissioner may direct. The change urged Is that all payment of roud taxes In labor shall be done away with, that all taxes shall be paid In money and that tho money shall be expended under the direction of the skilled and trained ofllclals of the state. There can be no doubt that this ar rangement would secure yery much better return for the money of the va rious towns than Is got at present. No ouo need be a great traveler in tho In terior of our state to know that tho general condition of the roads is bad and that the badness is tremendously costly. It Is quite common to see a fairly good road passing from the area of one town become a wretched road In the next, und the proportion of the latter In many times greater than that of the former, As a. rule tho actual cost of the de cent rouds Is not appreciably larger than that of tho bad ones. Tho mon ey Is used In ono case and wasted In thu other. Tho plan suggested would not Increase, as we understand It, tho amount collected for roads. It would simply securo an Immensely better re turn for It.

If you ask tho man In tho street tho simple question, What Is otiu divided by a hair? he will either reply that tho operation Is an Impossible one or that the answer Is a hair. When you point out that one divided by two Is a half, he will see that there. Is something wrong somewhere, but will still bo quite tumble to give the right answer. When you tell him that the nnswer Is two, ho will either accept the assertion without understanding It or will dis pute It tooth and anil, If you attempt to convince' him of his error, you will (Ind It Is not at all an easy task. Ills mistake arises through tho con- I'oundlng of (wo distinct Ideas namely, one divided Into two and ono divided by two. One divided into two Is ono divided Into two parts, each part con taining a half. One divided by two In the ratio of one to two or tho number or times two Is contained In one. To any one who has thought thu matter out this seems clear enough, but to the man In the street It Is sheer nonsense and ho will tell you so. KansitH City Independent. A lilt of CorrFfliMiitilence.
