General Frederick Funston, the
commander of the department of the
Columbia, passed through the city
wis morning on his way to his sta-

a bashful and modest man and likes
not the inquisitive gaze of the curl

retreat of a Pullman, and not to be
embarrassed by the vulgar stares of
the assembled populace. This morn

pot gathered about the window to
look at the hero of the southern

and pulled the curtain down and left
them to the contemplation of the

Four-Fifths of an Inch Fell Last
Night and Yesterday Evening
Still Raining, With Good Prospects
for Continued Showers.
Preceded by a rattle of thunder
and vivid flashes of lightning, the
long-awaited rain came yesterday
evening at 4 o'clock.
Parching foothills and thirsty crops
were revived and freshened. Dusty
rontls and weltering ranges were vis
ited with a vlcorous downpour that
went to the roots of the grass and
the bottom of the dust.
North, west and east of Pendleton
the ram clouds novered long and
lovingly. The storm came on gently

prelude of 20 minutes, which scarce
ly laid the dust, the storm began to
come down In earnest and for two
hours sustained the reputation of Or
egon. Reports from every point In the
county say that the rain came In

the shower was heaviest west and

One feature of the shower last
night was that it seemed to fall in
spots. Six miles southwest on the
McKay, scarcely any rain fell last
night. A large amount of alfalfa was
cut and in the shock in that locality
and several farmers from there who
were in the city at the time of the
rain, were deploring the sunnosed

To their surprise, they found that
only a light shower had fallen there
and their hay was safe.
They have not fared so well todav

ED HANEY IS IN CUSTODY
CHARGED WITH SWINDLING
Young Man Is Said to Have Stolen a
Suit of Clothes by Ways That Are
Dark and Tricks That Are Val
Is Now in Pendleton Jail.
Thr. rnse of the state of Oregon
vs. Ed Haney will In all probability
prime before the Justice court this
afternoon or tomorrow morning,
when the defendant will be given his
nrellmlnarv hearing nnd be cither
hmuirl over or dismissed.
The complaint Is filed by Charles
Bond, of this city, and alleges that
the defendant came into his store on
Main street, on the afternoon or
Jun 2. and then and there tendered
tn him as navment for a suit or
clothes a check for $20, purporting
to be drawn by Hartinett & Laing m
favor of the bearer. The check was
honored, the goods delivered and
chance clven and in a few minutes
the young man was on his way to the
train, c othes. money and nil.
i Tuesday afternoon, Juno 2, the de-
owned bv Mr. Bond, and asked to
look at some clothes. He was shown
some suits and was very easy to
nlease. savlnc that he liken the suit
1 and that he would return m a little
! time and take it with him. He went
out and did not return till after Mr.
Bond had gone to his dinner. In the
the evening he came into the store
and gave the check to Mr, Sullivan
a clerk In the store. The suit was
wrapped up and the defendant pock
eted his change and left the store.
Haney said that he had been work
ing for the firm of Hartinett & Lalng
and that they had given him the
check iu payment for his services.
When the check was presented at
the bank it was promptly turned
down as a forgery. Bond took the
paper to the office of Dr. C. J.' Smith
and the firm was called up over the
telephone. The alleged writers of
the check disclaimed all knowledge
of It and said that the young man
had been in their employ for some
time. The warrant was then made
out for the arrest of the culprit and
the officers put on the trail.
Haney evidently knew that the
fraud would soon be discovered, for
he immediately started to cover his
tracks. He went to the train nnd '
took a ticket to Athena and from
there he doubled to Colfax and Day
ton and several other towns, express
ing his grip several times as a blind.
He was at last located at Tekoa and
vas arrested by the chief of nolice
of that place. C. R. Hassock, several
days ago. On the way to the jail
Haney took to his heels nnd refused
to stop when tho officer called to him
to halt, and Hassock took a shot at
him. At first he shot to scare, but
the young man refused to stop and
then the marshal began to shoot In
earnest. He shot five times at the
