A Prize-winner and Seller and Pur
chaser of Prize-winners.
C. B. Wade is making the record of
this season In winning prizes for his
exhibits of fine stock as well as for
sales and purchases. He has won at
every fair at which he exhibited, has
purchased the top herd of tho biggest
concern In the Willamette valley, and
has made sales as far as the Hawalin
The sale made in that far away
place was made to a large stock farm
owned near Honolulu, and "Odd Fel
low," the famous Hereford yearling
bull, was the object of sale. "Odd
Fellow" Is truly a wonderful animal.
He won last year the prize as calf at
every fair exhibited and has juBt
scooped all comers and goers as a 1-year-old.
Mr. Wade sold him to the
Honolulu man for the sum of $500.
The purchase made by Mr. Wade
was the top herd of the Oak Hill
Farm, owned by Mr. Ladd, of Port
land. This herd was a prize-winner
throughout at the Oregon State
Fair and Is now on exhibit at the Spo
kane fair. As soon as that fair is over
tho herd, consisting of nine beauties,
will be brought to Mr. Wade's Grand
In speaking of the matter today,
Mr. Wade said: "I paid a good round
sum for this herd and do not regret
it. I propose to get the best that Is
going and keep Eastern Oregon In the
lead In the production of one" stock."
Mr, Wade is only one among many
who propose to demonstrate what can
be done In this country In fine stock
raUIng, and where there are only
hundreds now. In a few years thous
ands will be found in the business with
the same ambition.
Washington, Oct. 14. The operators
have agrepd to the appointment of a
commission to be appointed by the
president of tho United States to
whom shall be referred all questions
at Issue between the companies and
their employes, whether they belong
to the union or not and the decision
of the commission shall be accepted
by the operators. The commission
Is to consist of an army and navy
engineer officer, an expert mining en
gineer not connected with coal min
ing properties, one of the judges of
the United Statse courts of the East
ern district of Pennsylvania, a man of
prominence, eminent as a sociologist
and a man who by active participa
tion In mining and selling coal Is
familiar wit hthe physical and com
mercial features or the business.
The operators also make part of the
proposition that the miners shall re
turn to work as soon as the commis
sion is constituted and cease all in
terference with non-union men.

proposed commission to be appointed
by the president to investigate the
strike, as it Is regarded as almost
certain that Mitchell will accept tne
President Roosevelt has received a
list of ellglbles to act on the board,
from Commissioners Wright and Snr
gent. The general opinion seems to b.;
that Admiral Melville or General Gil
lespie, the latter being chief of the
army engineering corps, will bo nam
ed for first member; second member,
Frank Klepetko, in charge of the
amalgamated copper mines, or Pro
fessor Charles Treadwell: third, Cir
cuit Judge George Gray, ex-senntor
from Delaware, who by reason of his
location, would have no prcconcei"ed
notions to overturn or confirm;
fourth, either Henry George, Jr., Car
rol D. Wright or Jacob Itils, the New
York sociologist. Tho fifth member
will be a hard one to select and 100
names are mentioned for the position.
The president will probably select
and address the men, asking them to
accept the responsibility, immediate
ly upon Mitchell's acceptance.

The Concession to Humanity Only.
New York. Oct. 14. The operators
arc divided In opinion as to whethoi
their proposition for arbitration can
be regarded as a concession, but keep
up an outward show of claiming no
relinquishment of their former atti
tude. Ollphlne says It Is a concession to
.humanity only, and a desire to help
the whole country. Ho says the op
erators could continue to shut down
Indefinitely until the miners were
The operators claim the admission
of a sociologist to tho arbitration
committee would naturally mean the
selection of a laboring man, but on
the point as to whether the union may
be accountable they say that It Is for
the president to decide.
Union Wants a Week.
Wilkesbarre. Pa.. Oct. 14. '.Mitchell
says It Is a rule of the United Minora

land officio has rendered a decision
Jn tho case of Proirio DolmaH, of
Dtittn, Montana, In which tho claims
of 'sooners aro uphold, Tho plain
tiff sought tho possession of a ploco
of land on Fort Hall Indian reserva
tion, recently thrown open by the
government, on grounua mai no was
tho first to place foot on tho ground
following tho opening of tho reserva
tion, Tho decision Is against DelmaB, as
Is wus held thut presence on tho tract
of land waH not necessary, and that
a knowledge of laud in question Is
all that was necessary to file and glvn
a valid title. Tho contestor of Hol
mes' claim did not tako the trouble
of participating In tho wild scramblo
at tho opening of tho reservation, hut

were mado by "soonora." and It la bo-
lleved extended litigation will follow
