Some of the Contestants Failed to
Show Up, But Those Who Did Had
a Very Lively Time.
Tho "Terrible Turk", entertained
the sportsmen of Pendleton at the
opera house Thursday night with a
very clever exhibition of wrestling.
The Turk is a mouster. He is a man
who is as powerful as an ox in fact,
is a giant land has skill.
Ho advertised to throw anybody
that would accept his challoiigo,
within 15 minutes or forfeit $G07 Mo
tanac, the Indian policeman from the
Umatilla reservation, accepted tho
challenge and promised to be on hand
last night to take a chance with the
Turk, but evidently became alarmed
when ho saw the fellow, and did not
show up. However, two matches
were given. Professor Walters, of
Seattle, a little fellow, who has been
doing stunts on the streets for sev
eral evenings, as a strong and active
man, went acainst tho Turk and held
him for just 10 minutes. Tho little
fellow looked like a boy by tho side
of the giant, but ho has skill and
managed to squirm out of several
tight places to the delight of tho audience.
Professor C. E. Hallott, of British
Columbia, then went against the Turk
and he stayed with him for 14 min
utes, showing his skill in eluding the
Cannon Ball Catcher.
The performance was opened by
Captain John Holtum, the cannon
ball catcher, who gave the audience
some of the worth of its money in
handling cannon balls. He tossed
iron balls weighing from 1G to CO
pounds around like an ordinary man
would handle a baseball. "When he
caught tho cannon ball tossed from
tho mouth of tho cannon tho onlook
ers were astounded. ThiB was 0
clever trick. HJs most difficult feat,
though, was walking on bottles from
one side of tho stage to the other.
A row of beer bottles wore set 01
the stage and small flags stuck In
the necks. The' captain started at
one end and picked the flags out of
the bottles as he went along, step
ping from one bottle neck to tho
other, apparently with ease.
Another Bout Tonlaht
During the performance tho man
ager for the Turk lsaued a challenge
to all co mors and Frank Lowls, bar
tender at the "Gratz," accepted the
challenge, or rather made tho Turk
a challenge. Lewis is a strong man
and has held the middle-weight cham
pionship of the world, but has not
wrestled for several years. Ho offer
ed to wrestle the Turk tonight on the
conditions that the Turk was tc
wrestle him 21 minutes, in 7-mInute
pouts, with 10 minutes between the
bouts, to gjve him a chance to catch
his wind. Tho Turk accepted the
challenge and Lewis agreed to go on
tho stage tonight If the Turk does
not throw Lewis within the time
given, Lewis is to eet S50.
DEAD BUT THREE DAYS.
That Is the Latest Opinion Regarding
"Hank" Moans, who Is in town to
day from Echo, throws moro light on
the time tho man, found below town
Tuesday, had been dead. Mr. Means
says a man answering tho descrip
tion of Poster Carmine, tho dead
man, was in Echo last Thursday and
left thero elthor Friday or Saturday
Ho went into Means' place of busi
ness and "soaked" his watch for $1
saying ho had been working for Soth
Richardson, near Pendleton. Ho ro-!
malned there a few hours and 1Ib- 1
appeared. Means thinks this was not j
until Saturday, however, and this
was tho laBt tlmo ho was seen alive.
If this was Carmine, and thoro is
little doubt but that it was, ho had
not been dead as long as was thought
by the physicians nnd .coroner's Jury.
If he left Echo Saturday morning, ho
could not havo reached tho plnce
where ho was found until some time
Saturday evonlng or night, and had
not been dead moro than three days
and nights at the most. A body lying
in tho hot Bun, as his was, exposed
for three days, would naturally bo
badly decomposed and would appar
ently havo been dead longer.
Boone, la., July 18. Today's ses
sion of tho Upper Dos Moines Editor
ial Association's convention opened
with an increased attendance of
members. During tho forenoon pa
pers were presentod ns follows: "Ma
chino Composition," Allen Harvoy
Perry; "Ad Writing," Jas. E. Down
ing, Fort Dodgo; "Special Features,"
G. S. Turrill. Jefferson: "System in
Newspaper Business," L. W, Chand
ler, Fonda; "Clean Advertising," Mrs
Carrlo M. Ogllvlo. Dob Moines. Lato
this aicrnoon the convention will
chouse new officers and select a place
for the next meeting, and this oven
ing as a fitting wind-up to what has
been ono of tho most successful
meetings in the history of tho asso
ciation, tho visitors will bo guests at
a banquet to bo given by the Business
Men's Association of Boone.
Murderer's Execution Stayed.
Jersey City, N. J., July 18. This
was tho happiest day for Georgo W
Taylor, tho colored murdoror, since
he was first locked up in the county
jail. It was to havo been his day of
execution, but an oloventh-hour stay
granted by the court assures him of
a further loaso of lifo until October,
at least. Taylor's crime was the
murder, of his aunt. Minnlo Taylor, in
this city, last December.
Wheat Harvest Big.
Spokane, July 18. Tho great wheat;
harvest of Eastern Washington willi
begin next week, which Is three)
weeks or a month later than usual
The harvest of fall wheat on the-jlch
hill soil and o spring yheat on the
Jow, light soil, will begin. almost sim
ultaneously. Tho crop this year will
hot come up to tho mammoth yieia ,
of last year, but it probably will be'
in excess of the average, owlnj to,
the increased acreage. Some fear Is
expressed ' that tho supply of laboi I
will not be equal to the demand. j
