at Mat Kasori. But Without Ef
John Anderson, a farmer living In
the Despaln gulch north of town,
took four shots at Mat Kasori Monday
and is now under arrest on the charge

The story of Kasori Is that he and
Johnson became involved in a dispute
over the paying of wages. Kasori
had been employed on Johnson's
ranch and claimed that Johnson
owed him for labor. In the excite
ment it seems Kasori caught hold of
Johnson and held him, making him
promise not to do him bodily harm
if he would turn him loose. Johnson
promised to be good and Kasori turn
ed him loose and went to hitch up a
team. Johnson went into the house,
procured a revolver, walked to the
porch and began firing at Kasori,
emptying four chambers of the revol
ver at his enemy.
Kasori v.ame to town and swore to
a complaint against Johnson and he
was placed under arrest Johnson
claims he did the shooting in self
defense. The trial was set for 2
o'clock this afternoon.

SOCIETY FOR THAT PUR.
POSE BEIKG ORGANIZED.
Branch of the New Society Is Being
Organized In Pendleton Organizer
Chov Kon. organizer of tho now
Chinese association which is work
ing for the overthrow of tho Tartar
dynasty which has been in power in
China for the past 300 or 400 years,
was in the city this week and held
two meetings in Hondrick's hall,
which were largely attended by Chi
namen of all stations.
Tho name of the now organization
Is too much of a Chinese puzzle to
appear In print, but the objects of tho
organization, as outlineu oy uiu
speaker, and by influential Chinese
who wore interviewed regarding the
matter, are to place on tho throne of
China the rightful heir, according to
the doctrines of tho original Chinese
China a Conquered Nation.
The present ruler of China is not a
real Chinaman, but is a descendant of
the Tartars, who in 1642 overran
China and conquered the people at
that time inhabiting the country.
When Pekin, the capital city, was
captured by the Tartars, owing to the
treachery of his supposed friends,
Sun-Che, the last emperor of the Ming
dynasty and the last of the genuine
Chinese rulers, threw himself Into the
Yangste Yiang River and ended his
reign. It is to place on the throne
of China the lineal descendant of
Emperor Schun-Che, re-establish the
Ming dynasty and introduce many re
forms in the manner in which the
government of China is administered
that the organization represented by
Choy Ivan is working.
Emblems of Subjection.
Tho Tartar dynasty, of which the
present emperor of China is a descen
dant, Introduced tho wearing of pig
tails, which at the time df its Intro
duction was an emblem of the infer
iority of the Chinese, and their sub-i
jection to the Tartars, and many
other customs which are regarded as
essentially Chinese, are in reality
only the result of rigid regulations
inflicted upon a conquered people by
tho Tartar conquerers.
Do Away With Many Things.
These and many other habits of the
Chinese would bo done away with by
the new organization, which repre
sents not only the "royalist" or
"rightful heir" party, but as well the
more progressive element of the Chi
nese people. The principal open mis
sionary work for the new party is
being done in the United States, Can
ada and Great Britain, as the workers
in those fields can do more for the
financial support of the party and
have not the danger of losing their
heads, which is ever present with
those who advocate the party within
tho confines of China.
Many Organizers at Work.
Choy Kon is but one of many or
ganizers who are working in the in
terests of the new association, and it
is believed that within a few years
tho party will be strong enough to
make itself felt in the management of
the Chinese government. In this
country tho organization in every city
where there is a population of 100
or more Chinese, erects or maintains
Us own hall or meeting place, and
operates on the pattern of a well
managed club, being not only a hot
bed of rebellion, but a fountain head
of higher and progressive education
Choy Kon will bo back this way on
Friday, at which time it Is confident
ly expected by tho Chinese of the city
to perfect the organization of a
branch of the now organization in
ing when ho wont through tho pock
In ovldouce todny tho young man
stated that he was not acquainted
with Robinson and never told him to
holp himself to tobacco.
"Whether or not Robinson Bet tho
room on flro with the idea of committ
ing robbcrv during the excitement or
not Is not known but tho evidence
was such as to wnrrant Judge Fltz

term of tho district court.

FIRE IN LODGING HOUSE.
Man Arrested Charged With Attempt,
ing Arson and Robbery.
About 5 o'clock this morning the
occupants of the Penland Bros.'
lodging house, were rudely awakened
by the alarm of fire. Upon Investiga
tion ono of the rooms was found to be
In a blaze, but It was discovered in
time to be extinguished before any
serious damage was done.
Whether or not tho fire wns set ma
liciously or was an accident, no ono
knows, and perhaps nover will know,
but it looks suspicious. About 1
o'clock this morning D. Turner, who
is on tho night police force, took a
man named M, C. Robinson to the
room In the lodging house and put
hi mto bed. Robinson was drunk. At
5 o'clock fire was discovered in Rob
inson's room. Ho claims not to know
how the flro started, but during the
tirao tho flro was being extinguished
Robinson went Into another room and
was caught by Penland going through
another fellow's pockets. Penland
and Karl Churchhlll took charge of
Robinson and took him to police head,
quarters where ho was locked up.
When asked what ho was searching
for ho claimed ho vtob acquainted
with tho young man and asked him If
he had Bmoking tobacco. Ho claimed
furthor that tho young man answered
that his tobacco was In his pockots
and told him to holp hlmsolf. This
was what Robinson claimed to bo do-
A Little Information Regarding the
Industry on the Pacific.
Tnmmn Is to have a woolen mill.
At least such is the declaration of the
Tacoma papers. The enterprise and
public spiriteduess that makes pos
diiift thn Innucuratlon of Biich an In
AnatrV In thn "CltV Of DCStini'." IS
to be commended. It is certain that
Tnrnma is In need of more Industries
But just because Tacoma is to have
n wnnlnn mill is no reason why tho
Tacoma press should misrepresent
tho woolen manufacturing situation
on tho Pacific Coast. In a recent
iBHim of tho Tacoma Evening News
under the caption, "Tacoma's Great
Woolen Mill Project," appears tno
following enormous statement:
"There is no woolen mill of any 1m
portnnce on the Pacific Coast, and
none nearer than the city of St. i'aui
which is about 1850 miles distant."
Either the author of this statement
is ignorant of the facts, or else he
wilfullv misrenresents the situation
As for tho State of Washington it
mav be said that woolen mills are not
among the conspicuous Wastries. The
stnte has but one little plant, and
that is located in Seattle. Oregon.
however, has made considerable pro
gress In the manufacture or woolens,
and while as yet but a Bmall propor
tion of the annual clip is converted
into cloth at home, the state has nine
mills with a total capacity of 10 sets.
Oregon City has a mill with 13 sets;
Portland and Salem have mills of six
sets capacity each; Albany, Eugene
and Bandon have three-sot mills
each, and Pendleton and Brownsville
have mills of two sets each. Perhaps
the total consumption of these mills
is 3,000,000 pounds of wool annually,
and as the annual clip of Oregon ap
proxlmates 20,000,000 pounds, It Is to
be seen that there Is a large Burplus
for export. California has about a
rlitaen woolen mills.
Perhaps, the most Bingular an
nouncement in connection with the
Tacoma woolen mill enterprise is the
proposal to import and manufacture
the wools of Australia and New Ze
land. This, in the face of an 11
cent duty, nnd the enormous wool
production of the Pacific Coast, gives
the enterprise a "fishy" aspect.
John Sparks, of Reno, Nev., will

Oregon state fair Instead. Ho has

cattle in the United States and will

Has Fallen Four and a Half Cents
Wheat Ib now being quoted locally
at 48 conts a bushel and tho vfarmers
are looking on with much apprehen
sion. With a good crop and prospects of
a good price the farmerB of Umatilla
county were beginning to tlflnk they
wero in luck, but now they are not
feeling so good. At least, most of
thom nro not. Some took ndvantnge
of tho early sales when they could
get from 50 to 52 conts aa bushel and
let loose of tholr holdingB, but owing
to the fact that the Indications wore
such as to lead farmers to bolievo in
stead of declining in price wheat
would open strong and remain the
Bamo or perhaps, go higher, many
held hoping to realizo a profit there
by. In fact, few farmers were in any
great rush to got rid of their crops.
It 1b impoBible to figure whether or
not grain will continue to fall or will
stand still for a while, then go up
and consequently the matter of prices
Is now about all the Umatilla county
farmer haB to wory about.
It Ib estimated that In Umatilla
county 100,000 bushels of wheat have
been sold out of tho 1902 crop. While
this Is less thnn one-third of tho pres
ent crop it has brought a large sum
of money into tho hnnds of the lucky
farmers. None has Bold for Icbb than
50 cents and from that to 52 cents
a bushel at the present price the mar
kets are practically at a standstill.
