A Few Items From That Town and
Athona, Aug. 25. John Smith, who
was. hurt by being pulled over the
dashboard of a rig which he was
driving over from Bingham Springs,
last .week, receiving a couplo of
broken ribs, and several serious
bruises, is doing as nicely as could bo
expected under the circumstances,
and will be out and around again in
a couplo of weeks.
The town is still stirred up over
the capture of the Touchet robbers,
near here last Tuesday and local
members of the posse are spinning
long yarns of what they "would have
done" had the miscreants shown
Contractor G. W. Hansell, who has
secured the contract for erecting the
new Christian church at the corner
of Fifth and Adams streets, is having
the material got out as rapidly as
possible as ho is anxious to have the
building completed within the next
mouth or so and ready for occupancy
before cold weather sets in.
The Press, in a spirit of exultation
over the orderliness of the town this
season, remarks: "That an entirely
different class, of men are working in
the harvest fields tributary to Athena
to those who worked in former years,
is certainly conclusively demonstrat
ed from the fact that the police have
as yet not made one arrest of a har
vester since the season opened, for
being drunk or disorderly. So far,
during the present harvest, Athena's
famos "skookum house" has not
known the presence of a harvester
with a "jag" and has contained but
one bad Injun. The genus hobo
stripe seems to have boon eliminated
from the harvest field."
Adams and Vicinity.
The Adams Advance furnishes the
Jesse O. Hales realized 32 bushels
pter ncre from 320 acres.
Mrs. J. B. Stanfleld visited with
friends at Pendleton this week.
Frank Baxter had 76 acres of wheat
which yielded 35 bushels per acre.
J. W. Peringer this senson had 300
acres of wheat which gavo an aver
aged between 33 and 35 bushels per
W .S. Ferguson finished hauling his
wheat off, Mrs. Agnes Forguson's
place yesterday, which ho stored at
the Kerr-Gifford warehouse. Tho
yield was good.
Albert Harala informs us that the
Russian thistle is getting bad In tho
Little Greasowood and Fulton station
neighborhoods. This pest should be
attended to. Tho road supervisor has
his duty very plainly laid boforo him
In black and white regarding this
weed. Ho should mako an inspection
at once and notify all thiso on whose
place he finds the thistles growing to
remove them at once, nnd If they do
not do so, he should have them de
stroyed and charge tho cost of doing
so to the owner of the land. Now Is
a bad time for them and if thoir de
struction is put off n few weeks long
er millions of seeds will bo scattered.
At onco is the time to rid the land of
this weed, so make a thorough In
vestigation and destroy all thnt is
found, whether on your own land or
the public highway.
RUSHING OUT OF KLONDIKE
MINERS ARE FLOCKING
OUT OF GOLD COUNTRY.
Avaracious and Incompetent Admin
istration of Affairs and Governmen
tal Policy of Obstruction the
Seattle, Aug. 25 From northern
adviceB it would appear that there is
now almost as great a rush out of the
Yukon and Klondike districts as
there was into them but a few years
a go. A Skagway newspaper just re
ceived in this city contains the fol
lowing regarding the outward move
ment: "The vanguard of the exodus of the
Klondike arived on last night's train.
They say that thousands of miners
will leave the Klondike in the next
CO days for the American Yukon and
the States and that there will not be
over 8000 people in all the British
Yukon next winter. They claim the
cause of this exodus out of this
northern gold land is the corrupt,
vacillating and pernicious methods

adopted by tho government under the
management of tho present minister
of the Interior, Clifford Sifton. Tho
sentiment Is so strong against Mr.
Sifton that If ho were to arrivo In
the Klondike tonight tho population of
tho camp would turn out enmasso to
morow morning and burn him In ef
figy. There never was such a gener
al feeling of distrust, utter want of
confidence and commercial unrest as
exists there at the present time.
Policy of Obstruction.
"The policy of tho Interior depart
ment has obstructed tho business of
the mining in tho British Yukon to
such an extent that It has cut down
the gold production from $22,000,000
to $8,000,000. in one year. Every
pledge has been violated, every rule
of right and justice transgresssed,
and to cap the climax, the Sun, which
is the official paper of the govern
ment, comes forward now with a
remedy for the existing depression,
the bringing in of Japanese labor.
Record of Incompetency.
"A record that is as black as tho
ace of spades, stands out as monu
mental evidence of tho incompetency
of the administration. It is said that
when Mr. Hawkins was In tho East
this summer scouring the financial
centers for aid to build tho Klondike
Mines railway, which was to bo con
structed to tho very heart of the
richest placer camp In the world, ho
received tho following answer wher
ever ho' went: 'Wo havo millions for
investment, but not ono dollar for
tho Klondike.' Think of It! Millions
for Investment, but not one dollar for
the Klondike the British Empire's
richest gold camp of all tho world

Oregonlan Correspondent Gives
Wrong Impression About Satur
The Portland Oregonlan has a re
porter who has stirred up a great doal
or feeling In Pendleton by tho story
of tho fire which occurred hero Sat
urday evening and wns published In
that paper undor a Pendleton date
Tho reporter mado this asaertlon:
"Tho wator reservoir was empty
when tho lire broko out, undergoing
repairs and cleaning, but tho city
pump house supplied ample wator."
This Is a mistake Tho statement
would mako It appear that somobody
was negligent In seeing that thoro
was always wator on hand to cope
with a Are.
In tho first placo, thoro waB plenty
of water in tho resorvolr. When the
flro broko out Wator Superintendent
Brown said there was exactly 7
feet of wator In tho reservoir, lacking
only two feet of being full.
In the Becond pluco tho story of tho
Orogonlan seemB rldiculpus on tho
face of It. It says tho "city pump
houso supplied ample water." Any
one who knowB anything about tho
pumping plant of Pondloton knows it
would not furnish "amplo water."
With 10 streams of wator playing on
tho flro this jiump would not have
been a "drop in tho bucket," as It
wore. Tho pump was kept going all
during tho flro and when evening
rarao and tho ilro wan under control,
tho water In Uio resorvolr wan down
2Vi feet, and had tho flro raged for
several hours longer tho supply might
havo become short, hut as It waB,
thoro waB neither an empty resor
volr nor any deficiency In tho supply.
It Ib true that tho reservoir bad
been cleaned. This was dono on Fri
day, howovor, and It Is likely that
tho reporter for tho Orogonlan heard
of this and did not know tho reser
voir had been refilled.
