CLERKS WILL REORGANIZE.
Early Closing of Store, and Social
Progress Thelrj Principal Aims.
The' icierUs of? the I city J met- 'last
evening rat Pa!ntorayhau7 to further
discuss their reorganization. iuv
matter was'thoroughlyi'canvasBod and
at a meeting to bo held next Wednes
day, tho union will elect 'officers and
lay Its plans .lor we iuiure.-
The union hero has a charter at
M. r. uronnnt limn nn il the reorganize-
tlon la partly for the purpose of hold
ing their cnarter. wnne uie -ganliatlon
will be on strictly union
lines, it will be practically a social
organization. The clerks of the city
aro unknown one to the other. The
omploycs In one store aro not ac
quainted with those working in an
other, and It is tue enori 01 mo j""
motors of the union to counteract this
condition of affairs.
Then It Is hoped that the .union
may In time lead to tho early clos
ing of the stores during the summer
n thn n-lnfnr mnnths. It Is
stated that the majority of the busi
ness men or tne city are not particu
lar about keeping their stores open
m itn in ti ovenlne: In fact, they
would rather see their stores closed
if It was an universal plan, nut wnun
ono storo remains open the rest must
in Justice to themselves follow suit.
It Is hoped, therefore, that the perma
nent organization or the union may
educate, in time, the proprietors and
the patrons ot the business houses of
Pendleton to the advisability and de
sirability ot-the early closing plan so,
universal in the cities of the state
and nation.
But tho union Intends to make no
demands or requests. The conditions
i.or. am fnvnrnliln ninl their organi
zation will attempt no radical change
In tho present state 01 anairs. Aiier
the offlcors are elected and their union
Isnn a" permanent basis, more or
their Intentions will be known.

Sustained Losses of Sheep.
Charles Cunningham, who recently
Bhlpped 2,000 head ot blooded Merino
and Raraboulllet rams to Hardy,
Mont., considers himself to be a lucky
man today. The rams were all one-year-olds,
and composed as fine a
band of blooded sheep as could be
found In tho United States. They were
shipped to Central Montana for sum
mer ranging 'and had no more than
landed there when a spell of bllzzaru
weather set.ln, killing the stock of
the countrji'ffn all directions.
JUr. Cunningham received a tele
gram this morning announcing uie
safety or his flock. Out of the 2,000,
but seven had been killed by the
weather. A cold, calling rain is st...
falling, but good men are in charge
or the fehecp and the owner1 hopes
his flock will have no further loss.
