' Reasons for Raise Are That Supply
i In Northwest Is Short Sugar Goes
i Up 20 Cents Per Sack In One Day.
' The sugar trust lias again tnken the
' bits In its mouth and raised the price
of sugar Yesterday the local mar
ket jumped from JG a sack to. so.jo
and within the past month Just 90 1
'cents has been added to this uecessi-
ty of the household.
" Last summer sugar reached tho
lowest figure It has attained lit this,
city for several years. It being down :
to a sack for several months. This
was caused by a fight between re
finers and jobbers, but this fall the;
difficulties between these people were!
patched up the hatchet burled and j
the price was again gradually shoved
up From $3 it wont to $5.10 and the
next Jump was to $5.25. Here It re-
' maliifd for several weeks, when 10 j
cents was again ntlileil. I lion u I
ven' to $5.30. $5.GB. $5.80 and with,
two more bounds it readied Yos
terdav the longest leap occurred.1
when It went at one bound to $0,20 1
a hundred . .
Tiiere is no cause assigned for'
i this increase in price further than
that the trust just wanted to swell i
its profits at the expense of the con-!
snmors and it raised the price. There j
i Is no shortage of sugar reported and i
local dealers say that It was just forc
ed up by the trust because it nai me
Coal Oil Advanced.
Coal oil has advanced a little in
Pendleton but Walla Walla consum
ers seem to bo up against a bunco
game proper. According to tho Walla
Walla Union, kerosene has jumped
from $1.25 to $1.75 a can within the
past few days. This Is out of propor-!
tion with the price here. The best'
keresone Is retailing here at $1.G0 per!
G-gallon can. and local dealers nre,
wondering what pressure can boi
brought to bear here and at Walla
Walla to cause so much difference In j
price. It would almost pay consum
ers to ship their oil from here in-1
stead of buying of local dealers.
Tho Union quotes a Standard Oil
man who says that the only reason
given for the sudden rise in the price
of oil is the fact that there is not a!
sulllcrent supply in the Northwest to
fill the demand. If this is the case
in Walla Walla. It is not known here.
Local dealers say they have discover-;
ed no shortage. They have been able,
to secure all the oil they could ills-
pose of at the regular price. I

Sheriff Daly, of Boise, Makes Public
Statement In Murder Case.
Boise. Idaho. Dec. 10. Sheriff Jo
seph Daly has created a sensation by
a public declaration that he believ
ed that George Levy, a convicted mur
derer, is being railroaded to tho scaf
fold, and that five of the prosecuting
witnesses, to his own knowledge,
have committed perjury.
George Levy was convicted in Feb
ruary last of tho murder of Davis
Levy, a miser nud well-known busi
ness man of Boise. Although of the
same name, the men wore not relnt
ed. Davis Levy was found In his
loom in a lodging house on Main
street, which he owned, one morning
in September, 1801, strangled to
death. His hands and feet had been
tied and his shoes taken oft. Ho
had been strangled by means of a
rope. The first Impression was that
the old man had been murdered for
his money, and had been tortured to
make him give it up. The room had
been ransacked. The police, however,
became convinced that he had been
murdered for revenge.

te.iJerlolu In the whole world.
"It Is worse than Paris. Vienna or
anv of the noted European capitals
said Ople Henil. and he hns traveled

should know.
The situation Is something awful
The whole criminal class of the city
which number many hundreds, have
been huddled together In a few square
Mocks. Into what Is called the new
t. mlcrloln. Vice and crime flourish
there and Haunts Itself in the face
erf all who pns by. Perhaps the vilest
den or them nil Is the Midway, which
Is the first ground floor crib house
ever tolerated by the local police.
Tills place Is owned and operated by
one of tin largest wholesale and re
tail grocery firms In tho city. They
took n man out of their place of bus
ness at the grocery store and placed
Mi l nlinnre nf the Midway.
The record of crime since tills no
torious place, the now tenderloin, has
been established, has neon as much
as night. The local papers have pub
lished the record for November, and
it makes an nwfnl Bliowing. Murder,
burglaries, highway robberies, every
rorm of crime, has boon recorded.
Very few arrests have been made and
the 'situation seems to have reached
a crisis.
