A Member of That Body Has No Po litical Independence, and the Job Is Expensive for an Honest Man Hopes for a Great Betterment of Conditions From Direct Primary Law Would Like to See the Law Governing Registration Amended. Douglas Belts, the sheepman of Pi lot Rock, was in town 'today on busi ness, and while here expressed him self on tho legislative question: "Ono oxporienco Is enough for a man who does not wish to bo a poli tician," said Mr. Belts, when held up about his reported candidacy for tho house at the Juno election. "I will undoubtedly 'run,' but It will be in at tending to my own business. I have had ono trial at It, and do not want another. , "I find that a man who goes to tho legislature has to be under the com mand of some party leader, and that there Is no chance for him to do what he thinks he should do, unless ho is. It is not a square deal, and I do not think that the right class of men aro in tl o legislature. They are not, as a rule, men who aro there for tho whole good of the people so much as for the good of themselves. And, besides, it Is too expensive for the little results that are obtained. "Yes, If more men who had the good of tho peoplo at heart would go to tho legislature and Into politics in general it would be better for tho parties and the people, but as It is, the man who goes Into it for the good of the people alone has no show. Ho is cut out of tho running, and either has to follow tho lead, or his efforts have no effects and bear no fruit. Favors Direct Primaries. "It may be that when tho direct primary law goes into effect, as I hope it will, tho people will have moro say as to tho men they send to represent them, and better men will bo put In charge. When that time tomes tho efforts of one man will be of moro avail, but not until then. There is one tiling, however, tnat hur never been called to the attention of tho people, which I think should be, and that Is the waste of money from the present registration sys tem. At the present time there is a man at the court house who is paid a good salary by the county to regis ter the voters of tho different pre cincts. He is In the office all tho time, and has nothing to do but to register them. At the same timo every justice of the peace In' the outlying districts Is registering men by affidavit, and In some cases I think are soliciting the registration. For each ono of these affidavits the justice gets 10 cents. It is a small sum, to be sure, but In the total it runs into qulto an amount of money, and tho little drops make the ocean of taxation. "In some states tho man who does tho registering makes a visit to each precinct and registers all of the vot eis In that place on one day. In that way he registers every one elig ible, and there is only ono man in tho county making a salary out of tho business. This matter. I think, should bo corrected. It would save a little, and we need these little sav ings. "Oh, yes; there are a lot of peoplo In tho county who would like to see me ruako the race, I know. So you say. But don't you know that there are another lot who would just as leave I wouldn't? I don't lilto to dis appoint tho latter, and besides, I have not tho time, nor the inclina tion. I have had all tho running I want to, and I am not desirous of being n politician. So I guess I will have to stay out of the race." ASLEEP SIXTEEN YEARS. Girl Remarkable Case of German That Puzzles Doctors. Germany has a modern "Sleeping Beauty," who lias Just awakened from a 10-year slumber, says tho Se attle Star. Mrs. W. P. Hutchinson. 2003 Bor on avenue, Informs tho Star that sho has just received a letter from her sister in Germauq, stating that Gl- sone Meyer, an old schoolmate of hers, who plunged Into a deep sleep two years beforo Mrs. Hutchinson left the "Fatherland," has Just awakened, after a rest of over 1G years. It was a very Interestelng story that Mrs. Hutchinson related to the Star. Glsene Meyer Is tho daughter of a well-to-do resident, who was mayor of the town of Granbko, near Bre men, Germany. She is now about 3S years old, and when last seen by Mrs. Hutchinson, was a very beauti ful woman. She had spells before, and at one time slept two weeks. They are supposed to bo tho outcomo of a severe fall sho sustained while about to enter a carriage on her way to a ball. v. But is said by old residents, who are somewhat superstitions, that ner sleep is tho outcomo of a gypsy's curse. Tho gypsy was offended by tho unfortunate girl's father years beforo and ho was told that his daughter would have a fall which would cause her to sleep for years. The prophecy camo true, and the learned doctors of Germany have been greatly puzzled by tho peculiar case. Nourishment has been given tho pntlent daily through her mouth, which has been always open. During tho girl's sleep her mother died and her sister married and was taken away. The letter which tells of 'the awakening states that a great fire broke out In tho town, and, dur ing tho confusion, tho sleeping girl suddenly camo out of her trance and called for her mother. While the father was overjoyed at hearing his daughter's voice once more, it nearly broke his heart, to hear her call in vain for her mother. The young woman remembers clearly everything that happened -c-foro she became Morpheus' subject, and speaks with remarkablo force. Mrs. Hutchinson says tho letter states that the girl Is probably try ing to make up for lost time, for sho talks incessantly. Her eyes have not yet been open ed and it is feared that she will lose her sight, unless tho eyes become gradually accustomed to the light. For that reason she Is being kept in a darkened room constantly. The most remnrkablo featuro of the strange case Is that tho woman lookB almost as young as sho did when she fell a victim to tho strange malady. DRY-LAND ALFALFA T, G.

The Peoples Warehouse The Leading Clothiers PENDLETON, OKECON "Dry-land alfalfa raising is no new experiment in Umatilla county," said ex-Mayor T. G. Halley today. "I am raising alfalfa without Irri gation every year, and last year, In an exceptionally dry season, grow five tons per aero on this dry land. on Wild Horse creek. To my person al knowledge, many fanners In tho northern portion of this county, are growing dry-land nlfalfa every year, and are making a success of It. All it requires is tho nerve to plant it." Mr. Hailey will seed several acres more to dry-land alfalfa this season, and believes it will grow on any of the bench land in the wheat belt of this county and ho thinks that it Is only a question of a low years, until many of the creek-bottom farmers who are now growing wheat, will bo making almost a doublo profit in raising hogs, alfalfa una poultry anu In dairying. "The creamery that Is coming to Pendleton will offer an opportunity for many small farmers to reap a handsome income from a few cows In tho foothills, and I for ono, am go lug to prepare to patronize this In' stitution with from 10 to 20 cows from tho timo it starts. "The milk cows can bo kept tho year around on alfalfa hay and pas ture. tho skimmed milk can bo used In fattening hogs, and in feeding poultry, and It can bo made ono of the most thriving Industries in mo state, If tho people will emhraco tho opportunity and encourage tho creamery to come." 10 AMENDMENTS VOTE FOR LOCAL OPTION AND DIRECT PRIMARIES. Prohibitionists Are Making a Zealous Fight for Local Option People In terested In the Purification of Poli tics Working for Direct Primaries Both Amendments Should Carry. Tho prohibitionists aro making preparations to enrry on a hard fight In all parts of Oregon, for tho pass ngo of tho local option amendment to the constitution, nt tho coming election.
