HABEAS CORPUS FILED.
Invoked to Secure the Release of
Deserter Who Did Not Legally En
An action In habeas corpus was
filed in tho circuit court yesterday
afternoon and was argued this after
noon before Judge Ellis. Tho suit
was brought by William Shorbtirn
the father of Henry Joseph Shcrburn
asking that T. D. Taylor as sheriff
of this county, bo compelled to bring
Henry Shcrburn before tho court nnd
show cnuso why the boy should not
ho sot freo.
Henry Shorburn, it Is claimed, is
deserter from tho regular nrmy at
Walla Walla, and has been arrested
by the sheriff and Is being held un
der instructions from Walla Walla
until such a tlmo as an officer can
reach tho city from that place and
take tho prisoner to tho fort.
The petitioner in his request states
that tho prisoner Is not being held
under a service or process from any
court, cither federal or state, that no
charge has been preferred against
him In any legal body, and that he Is
Illegally detained. Tho complaint
further alleges that tho son is hut 19
years of ago and that tho consent of
tho parents to his enlistment In tho
army has nover been given, and that
he Is thus not of right enlisted, and
therefore cannot of right bo a tie.

i H. Gwinn Receives Letters From
All the Prominent Wool Men Who
Have Attended Former Sales.
J. H. Gwinn, secretary of tho Ore
gon Woolgrowors' Association, Is In
receipt of letters from all tho promi
nent buyers who have nttendeu for
mer wool sales In this city, and they
all Inquire as to tho prospects for
the wool clip in tills county this
It is evident that all the former
buyers will be on the ground with
several now faces, attracted by tho
excellence of tho Umatilla clip.
George W. Abbott, of Koston, the
buyer who hail the luisfortuno to
break his leg on tho depot platform
at The Dalles, last year, whllo at
tending tho wool sales in Eastern
Oregon, has written to Mr. Gwinn
that ho expects to be present, and in
closing his letter says In regard to
the market prospects:
"As tho situation now Is, wool will
bo sorao lower than last year. The
American Woolen Company, on ac
count of their large production, Is
tho chief factor in making prices for
goods, Thoy havo offered their goods
at less than a year ago.
"If sheep have done woll, growers
may perhaps realize as much per
head as thoy did last year, oven If
prices are lower, as last year's clip
averaged, from one to one and a half
pounds, less per fleece than usual, on
account of the sovere winter and the
scarcity of feed."
Mr. Gwinn has Written letters to
the principal buyers to the effect
that Umatilla county wool will bo of
tin oxtra good quality this year, and
that owing to tho general conditions
of tho market, tho grower hero will
oxpect a good price for his wool nnd
that It might as well bo understood
first as last that tho uhoopmcu were
