the loudest own palaces on Fifth ave
nue and rent tenement houses. When
the price Is put up to a pnying point
you howl like a pack of whipped
dogs. You who pay for less coal
than I do and live nearer the mines.
You don't pay enough, nnd I mean
before this hearing is finished to nsk
permission from tho Interstate conv
merce commission to advance the
freight rates on coal from tho mines
to the seaboard.

pert dogs. It may or It may not In

CHURCHES TO MERGE.
Congregatlonallsts, United Brethren,
Methodists, Protestants and Chris
tians Propose to Unite.
Pittsburg, Pa., April 22. More than
one million church members In the
United Stntes are vitally Interested
In tho proceedings of the conferenco
begun hero today having for Its ob
ject a union of the Congregntlonnl,
United Brethren and Methodist Prot
estant churches nnd the smaller sect
known ns tho Christian Connection.
The conferenco Is composed of dele
gates appointed by the four denomi
nations to formulate a scheme of
union If tho Idea Is deemed feasible.
All of the churches have a somewhat
similar form of church government,
making much of local self-government.
Any agreement reached Is
likely to bo based largely upon tho
freedom and Independence of Individ
ual churches nnd freedom from bind
ing creeds. Creed differences. It is
felt, will not provo so great an obsta
cle to unity as tho opposite Ideas of
policy now obtaining. The question
of what name tho unified denomina
tions should ntlopt will be an Inter
If the union of the four churches Is
accomplished it will form n body of
one million two hundred thousand.
It Is believed that In the event of
union there need bo little adjustment
of fields, save, perhaps, between Unit
ed Brethren and Methodist Protest
ants. These bodies have their chief
strength In Pennsylvania, Ohio,
Maryland and Indlaun. Congregation
nlists arc strongest in New England,

Charles Cunningham Thinks the Time
Near at Hand When the Large
Sheep Holdings Will be Broken Up.
Charles Cunningham today began
shearing 0000 sheep tho last of hla
clip for this yenr.
Tho wool from tho 19,000 sheep hu
has already Bhcared, as well as tho
promiso from three hands ho boglns
operations on todny, Is extra for qual
ity and quantity as well. He hoi loves
tho clip for this year will bo the
largest In tho history of tho county,
largely fur the reason that the coun
ty Is overstocked with sheep,
Mr. Cunningham Indorses thu In
tensive or concentrated methods of
sheep raising that Is slowly develop
ing In this county nnd which ho re
gards as tho universal mothod ulti
mately, though It will bo very slow
developing on account of the cost of
labor. Ho thinks that It will bo very
difficult to mnko sheep raising on
limited areas pay from feeding root
crops when tho farmor hnH to pay
$.10 to HO nor month for labor to
plant, raise and caro for thoxo root
crops and "find" tho Inborer, to boot.
But ho bellnveu ono of tho Inevitable
results of tho Inlltix of Immigration
will bo tho cheupcnlng of labor even
tually, so Iheso root crops can bo
moro cheaply produced. Then tho
Inteuslvo methods of sheep raising
will be fully Inaugurated,
He reminds the public lu general
and tho sheep men ln particular that
it Is tho history of ovory sheep coun
try to ovontuolly bo brokon up Into
small holdings, and rogards that out
come for Umatilla county and all
Eastern Oregon as Inevitable, Tho
conditions bringing about this result
aro working rapidly now and will bo
fully In operation In two or threo
years more, Ho mentions tho In
creasing tariffs on salt and wool ex-
porattlons as hastening this result,
