PENDLETON IS FREE FROM
IDLERS AND TRAMPS.
Begging and Pilfering It Almost Un-
known This Winter work Plentl
ful in the Inland Empire Epidemic
of Vagrancy In Some Parts of Ore
The city of Pendleton is singularly
free from "hoboes' this winter. The
number of genuine tramps passing
through here and making headquar
ters on the ouUkiils of town is less
tow than for several years before.
Petty pilferiug and begglnir Is whok
ly unknown this winter so tar as can!
be learned and very few suspicious
looking specimens are to be seen on
Usually a band colects on the river
near the railroad bridge, and annoys
the neighborhood by carousing and
begslng, until dispersed, but the old
camp has been deserted most of the
Trainmen report very few tramps
or worklngmen traveling by the usual
box car and break beam pass.
Most of the men who aie passing
through the country seem to be warm-'
ly clad and nil have sufficient money
to pay for meals. '
: 'The severn weather of the moun
tain districts drives the tramps south
tc spend the "holidays' 'in sunshine.
Wardrobes cost more than the usual
tie pass, so for the sake of economy,
the idler goes where elaborate ward
lobes are not needed.
Grants Pass and Salem have com
plained for- months, of the presence
of hoboes and burglars. Many petty
crimes-have been committed and a
loud outcry has been made by the
press aeainst the prevailing vagrancy
There Is absolutely no reason for
men to be Idle in Eastern Oregon
even during the winter season. The
wood men of the Blue mountains have;
adrertiscd for help, the sheepmen em
ploy an army of feeders, herders and
helpers on the great' ranches, of he
Inland Empire, and the mines of East
ern Oregon constantly need more men
than they can get.

O. R. &. N. IMPROVEMENTS.
New Well at Bake.r City MOO Feet
of Pipe Laid and New Engine
O. E. Hull, superintendent of the
vater service on the O. R. & N. has
just completed some extensive Im
provements in the company water
plant at Baker City.
A well 22 feet deep and 16 feet in
ilametcr was completed some time
ago. Over 4000 feet of four-inch pipe
has just been laid, reaching from the
wen to the water tank near the de
pot. A new six-horse power gasoline
engine r.as just been placed In posi-
lion and the plant at that point Is
row in tirst-cicns conuiticn .
The company has had some tron
ble with the water supply at Baker
City in the past, but the well Just
completed is favorably located and
has every appearance of being inex
haustible. Perhaps at no point on the entire
system Is there more water used than
at Baker City. All eastbound trains
take water there and all westbound
freight trains. The water supplied
from the old well contained a great
amount of alkali, and caused locomo
tive boilers to foam very badly. Ever'
time it was possible to pass the Ba-i
ker City tank by, enginemen were
glad to do so.
However the quality of water in
the new well is much better and the
company feels that the trouble here
tofore experienced will be removed.

NECKLACE OF A CHIEF.
Splendid Indian Curio In the Hands of

One of the finest Indian relics ever
exhibited In Portland Is helm? shown

Parker, head of the Lewis and
Clark Commission for the state of
Washington, who has been in this city
tor some time. Jt Is a necklace made
from bears' claws, seals teeth, elks'
teeth, the finest of beads and pretty
colored pebbles. The necklace is val
ued at 50 by Mr. Parker, but he
would not part with It for many times
that amount. He found It In an open
Indian grave which he discovered
during a recent trip Into the Idaho
"In a short time," said Col. I'arker
today to a reporter for The Journal,
T intend making a trip down Into
