Wagner Here for Fair.
The directors of the Walla Walla
fruit fair have closed the contract
for Wagner's band to furnish the mu
sic for the -fruit fair In September.
This band baa played for the fair the
last two seasons, and has done much
toward making the fair a success
and the securing of this aggregation
again will attract many to this city
when the fair opens. Six aggrega
tions bid for furnishing the music
They were Hoppe's band, of Spokane
the Empire Concert band, of the
same place; Adlers band, of Taco
ma; the British Columbia band, of
Victoria; De Caprio's band, of Port
land, and Wagner's Military band
De Caprio's band had the lowest
bid In, but as the company only con
sists of 20 pieces, the directors did
not consider the bid.
Do Not Like It
The local dealers in soft drinks do
not take kindly to the order from the
county attorney closing all places
where anything is sold, on Sunday
They contend that Ice cream, soda
and such things do not come under
Lthe head of goods, wares and mer
chandise, and It Is likely that a test
case will be made. Everything was
closed Sunday except Lutcher Bros.
They kept open, and declare If infor
mation is filed- against them, they, will
make a test case of the law. Other
dealers will chip in -with them and
help pay theexpenses .of the suit.

His statement was flawless and left

Will Be Handled by the-Railways,
The wheat crop of Umatilla county
will soon begin to come into the
warehouses and the harvest of gold
en grain promises from present indi
cations to be' a bumper yield, despite
the damage which has been done by
wind, heat and blight.
Last fall there was a'litttle trouble
with' winter wheat on account of in
opportune frosts and some little dam
age was done but it was not sufil
clent to materially affect the yield
this season.
W. E. McComas, representing the
Northwestern Warehouse Company
and other well posted parties who
have travelled over the country and
estimated carefully the amount of
wheat to be harvested this season
say that it will be somewhere be
tween 3,750,000 and 4,000,000 bushels
"which will be better than the average
Yield Has Been Estimated.
In past years the yield has various
ly been estimated at from 4,000,000
to 5,000,000 bushels, but the actual
crop has failed to come up to the fig
ures, it is believed tnat tne present
estimate will be close in the neigh
borhood of the actual yield.
Many hundreds of men will be
needed in the harvesting of this
great crop, which is close upon one
per cent of the total yield of the
United States in average years and
this season will run a little better
than one per cent on account of im
mense damage to wheat fields In the
eastern portions of the union by fire,
flood and drouth.
The railways, however, do not an
ticipate any difficulty .in handling, the
Immense yield of the county as a new
system of car handling Is in force
this season, -which it Is believed will
result in much quicker return of cars
from consignees than has been ob
tainable heretofore.
O. R. & N. Will Have No Trouble.
F. F. Wamsley, general agent of the
O. R. & N., when seen by an Eastern
Oregonlan man said regarding the
handling of the wheat crop for this
"We do not anticipate any trouble
this season in supplying sufficient
cars to move the crop rapidly and ef
flclently. The demurrage system
which is In effect this year will force
consignees to unload and return
their cars much more rapidly than
formerly. This system only went In
to effect at the last end of the wheat
shipping season last year and we did
not really get an opportunity to de
termine just how much it would af
fect the traffic, so we can not have
very good estimate of the exact
number of cars which will be neces
sary to handle the wheat crop this
Estimates Hard to Get
"In fact if you want any kind of
an approximately correct estimate
of the number of cars which will be
in service this year In moving the
wheat crop of Umatilla county, it will
be necessary to consult the operating
"Personally, however,. I am of the
opinion that there will be less delay
in supplying cars and moving
consignments than was experienced
last season. I cannot give an ac
curate estimate of the amount of
wheat shipped from Mission this sea
son as -the farmers living near that
point sometimes bring their wheat to
Pendleton for shipment and some
times take it to Mission."
W.NA C. R. Is Ready.
The officials of the Washington &
Columbia River line believe that
everything has been so arranged that
there is plenty of rolling stock and
traction on the Pacific division of
the Northern and the tie-up of last
year will be effectually avoided. The
local road will run on timo through
out the season as it has done in the
past. Last year the trouble was not
on the line of the Washington & Co
lumbia River road, but after the cars
of wheat had- been delivered by that
branch system to the parent line.
Demurage System Will Help.
Not only will the Increased facili
ties of the various roads assist in
moving the wheat crop rapidly, but
there is another power back of the
business this year in all lines which
will hurry things along, and that is
that hereafter the charge will be
made of freight cars by the day, and
not by the mile of travel, as before.
When a road gets hold of a car be
longing to another line and has it
loaded for shipment and delivery.
the charge made by the company
owning the car will be for the num
ber of days it is in the possession of
its competing road instead of the
miles it travels. This will result in
cars being returned sooner as the
charges will naturally reflect on con
signees and will force them to hurry
their unloading of cars upon delivery.
.Hm Road Js Immune.
Speaking, of-the possibility of the
various lines being tied up by the
heavy wheat crop, an official of the
W. & C. R. general office said the
other day:
"No railroad can ever claim that It
is immune. There may certain con
ditions arise that would tie it up at
almost any time and not even the
most elaborate preparations can
guard against it. Indications now
are that the crop will be larger than
usual and that the price at the open
Ing will border on 50 cents. If there
should be a large number of farmers
take kindly to this price and unload
their grain at once there might fol
low just such another tie-up as oc
curred last year. But with conditions
normal and everything as it should
be, our line has guarded against all
possible trouble."
Amount of Damage Done.
Speaking of the damage done by
the recent hot winds and storms
which have swept over the county
Mr. W. E. McComas said this morn
ing that the amount of grain Injured
was not nearly as great as indicated
by most of the reports which have
come In.
"These reports are generally affect
ed by local conditions," said he, "but
the general aggregate will be found
to be not nearly so great as estimat
ed. While one man's crop may be
damaged to the extent of 60 or 60
per cent, there will be eight or 10 In
his immediate vicinity who will suff
er no loss at all. Individual losses
have caused the reports of damage
to run much higher than the real in
jury done and unless I am badly mis
taken, the actual damage will not
run over two, or perhaps three per
cent of the total yield."
